what moves us
Considering that many animal species are sentient, that is, capable of feeling and suffering, we argue that human interests should not be the only ones taken into consideration. A fair and compassionate society includes these individuals as morally relevant beings, not as mere tools or property.
Our scope focuses on actions against the worst factory farming practices, with the aim of promoting gradual improvements for animals in the short and medium terms, even if they do not immediately bring ideal results. In this context, we are dealing with billions of animals in critical situations, so small advances make a difference in their lives.
We must always take a constructively critical look at our habits and lifestyle, in order to align them with the availability of resources, while considering their impact on other individuals (human or not). Whether in food, clothing, entertainment or interaction with nature, it is necessary to understand that we are directly responsible for the consequences of our actions, so that we can make better decisions.
There is no way to talk about building a fairer world without considering social inequalities. All groups, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender or social class, must have the same right to access a dignified and healthy life. We support family farming, aspects of ecofeminism and the dignified treatment of indigenous peoples, while rejecting environmental racism and “nutricide”.
