What does speciesism have to do with colonialism, capitalism and white supremacy? Plenty. Pigs, cows and chickens didn’t exist in the Americas prior to colonizers. Europeans displaced, used and killed native humans and nonhumans, and on the stolen land they started to breed – and kill – “domesticated” animals as well as continue to exploit and kill other, non-white, humans. Animal agriculture helped advance European settler colonialism, and its later industrialization helped advance capitalist economy.
This is why on May Day we marched alongside multiple groups and activists in NYC against capitalism and colonialism. Thank you, activists marching in all the other blocs: Black Lives Matter, Indigenous Sovereignty, No Borders No Walls No Bans, Queer and Trans Liberation, Student Strike Debt, Free Palestine. And thank you Hoods4Justice for organizing! When we unite, we are unstoppable!
