World Day for the End of Speciesism

End of SpeciesismSpeciesism is when another being is considered inferior just because it is of another species. Speciesism is the reason humans exploit animals. Animals need an end of speciesism in the same way slaves needed an end to slavery.

The group “End of Speciesism” wants to see:

  • A new legal status – Abolition of animal property institution
  • Spreading kindness to animals through education – Prevention of speciesism
  • A non-violent dietary culture – The end of fishing and the closure of slaughterhouses
  • Ethical research – Animals are not scientific equipment
  • Consideration for individuals – Animals are not a resource

Stay tuned for New Zealand’s End of Speciesism events…
