We Have This Crazy Idea! It’s Called Refarm’d
By Geraldine Starke

We are helping dairy farmers get out of the dairy trade, and providing them with a new business model to become 100% plant-based milk producers. At the same time, their farmland is turned into an animal sanctuary for their herd to enjoy the rest of their lives free of exploitation. Crazy? It’s happening! See below for one of our stories of farmers who have already made the transition.

We are a new plant-based drink subscription service, sourced lovingly from ex-dairy farmers. Read more

Until the Lions Have Their Own Historians: The Objectification of Black and Animal Bodies in Hunting
By Christopher Sebastian

Last month, it was written that Donald Trump Jr. went abroad to western Mongolia to, in the words of Matt Stieb for New York Magazine, “combine two of his favorite things: benefiting from his father’s presidency and killing endangered animals for pleasure.”

A ProPublica report said Trump Jr. went on a hunting trip to shoot an argali—a giant sheep with curved horns up to six feet in length—and received a retroactive permit once coming in from the field.

The story reminded me of a quote from King Leopold’s Ghost: a Story of Greed, Terror, and Heroism in Colonial Africa by Adam Hochschild. It’s a remarkable historical text. It follows in part the exploits of explorer Henry Morton Stanley. The quoted account was from one of his officers

It was most interesting, lying in the bush watching the natives quietly at their day’s work. Some women…were making banana flour by pounding up dried bananas. Men we could see building huts and engaged in other work, boys and girls running about, singing…I opened up the game by shooting one chap through the chest. He fell like a stone…Immediately a volley was poured through the village.

A World Water Law: For Humanity, for the Animals and for All of Life
By Shelley Ostroff and Yan Golding

We are all birthed from Water. Ecosystems and human communities evolve around Water. As humanity rebirths itself at this critical juncture  in human history, we align with Nature to honor, protect and restore the one Water body that nourishes all of Life.

How do we, as humanity, evolve to align with the principles of Life and co-create an oppression-free and vitalizing world for all?

The proposal for a World Water Law and World Water Year 2021 are citizen-led initiatives that offer a unifying and holistic framework for rapid and radical whole-system healing. These initiatives are based on the understanding that when we collectively prioritize the healing of our planetary waters and water cycle, we will activate an exponential healing process that will benefit all of Life simultaneously.

Meet Debra Murphy: Founder of Vegan Bumble Bloom Honey
By Debra Murphy on Black Vegans Matter

What does it mean to you to be a woman of colour and a vegan?

Growing up biracial in a predominantly white community, I already felt different. And that experience makes you stronger, less afraid to stand out for other reasons, because you already do. Becoming vegan made me feel different from the mainstream in another way, and a positive one, in choosing to live as ethically and compassionately as I can. It also highlighted some preconceptions about what a black or mixed race person is. This idea that “Veganism is a white thing,” and that it’s elitist or exclusive. To me, it never felt that way. And with heart disease, diabetes, and other health problems being so prevalent in the black community, I was looking for a diet and lifestyle that would improve my day to day quality of life, and have longer-term health benefits as well. To me, veganism is about choosing an ethical and environmentally sustainable way of living, and about providing good quality plant-based foods and good nutrition for everyone on this planet we share. It’s accessible to everyone. It doesn’t have to be expensive – you just need to learn to cook. Read more
