I think ‘vegan’ is a beautiful word. It is more than just a description for our diet. I see it as a visible template for an ethical, healthy, responsible, and rational life. Because it describes our character, it says we do not take the life of another living being to satisfy our wants.

Philip Wollen: Animals Should Be Off The Menu Debate

I heard the screams of my dying father, as his body was ravaged by the cancer that killed him. And I realised I had heard those screams before: in the slaughter house, their eyes stabbed out and their tendons slashed; on the cattle ships to the Middle East; and the dying mother whale, as a harpoon explodes in her brain, as she calls out to her calf – their cries were the cries of my father, and I discovered that when we suffer, we suffer as equals.

We torture and kill two billion sentient living beings every week. Ten thousand entire species are wiped out every year because of actions of one, and we are now facing the sixth mass extinction in cosmological history. If any other organism did this, a biologist would consider them as virus.

Philip Wollen is vegan and in this video talks about animal rights and veganism as primary social justice issues.  Wollen was once a Vice-President of Citibank and now helps rescue abused animals.  

We torture and kill two billion sentient living beings every week. 10,000 entire species are wiped out every year because of the actions of one species. We are now facing the 6th mass extinction in cosmological history. If any other organism did this a biologist would call them a virus.
