angela for the animals

from 30.00

art /history: for #worldanimalday, i present the all-round badarse that is angela davis. from her roots as a counterculture activist & her work with the black panthers to her speaking tours today, she's still kicking away at an unjust system - & she's begun to be more vocal about the links between human & non-human subjugation. i'm going to use her words to drive the point home. she says it with much more eloquence than i ever could: 'i think the lack of critical engagement with the food that we eat demonstrates the extent to which the commodity form has become the primary way in which we perceive the world. most peole don't think about the fact they're eating animals. when they're eating a steak or eating chicken, most people don't think about the tremendous suffering that those animals endure simply to become food products to be consumed by human beings.' righteous!
