WoDES World Day For The End Of Speciesism New Zealand
August 27, 2016
Against Speciesism Movement will be offering compassion to animals during a peacefull protest for ” THE END OF SPECIESISM ” in Auckland. The goal of the World Day for the End of Speciesism is to denounce the unjust ideology that makes this barbarity possible.
In our societies our relationship with animals is based on speciesism : an ideology that considers the lives and interests of animals as insignificant because they are of a different species. It is clear that all sentient beings are equal in their capacity to feel pain. No matter what our ‘race,’ sex or species, nobody wants to suffer or be tvictims of violence. We all want to lead happy lives. Therefore all sentient beings, regardless of species, must be included within the circle of moral consideration.
Our society does not disdain babies or people with mental disabilities, although they appear to lack complex intellectual abilities, but grants them greater protection, and rightly so. In the same way, animals are sentient beings that have an interest in living the longest and happiest lives possible and should also be protected.
