Using arts and crafts for improving position of oppressed animals: Marita Tanninen (Vegan Vortex; FI)
“Every person has a key to change the world. I believe spreading the knowledge about animal rights is one thing that can make a big influence, and I think we are heading to more cruelty-free world all the time. If and when we are aware of these things, we can also demand improvements to be written in our laws. For example, many countries have banned fur farming lately. We just have to fight against the system.”
Respecting animals and building positive connotations to different groups of people: Apila Pepita (FI)
“I also think feminists should consider animal rights part of the cause as well. If we are fighting against the oppression of women, should we be fighting for the oppression of other creatures in this world as well that cannot say anything back? Capitalism impacts the environment and animals significantly. Destroying oppressive structures can help animals and the nature as well.”
