RepostBy @thebeardedvegans: "What's up, beardos?! This week we are pleased to bring you an interview with @markhawthorneauthor, author of Striking At The Roots: A Practical Guide To Animal Activism. The formative text for many activists that explores the vast array of grassroots activism at our disposal was released 10 years ago and is receiving an update to reflect the changing methods and technology that have evolved since its initial release. We ask what even is activism, is it okay to criticize other activists, does one need to be an activist in order to be vegan, the importance of self care and much much more. 🎉🎉🎉 Plus we discuss the news, including the greyhound racing ban in Florida and the drop in people will to take jobs in slaughterhouses. 🐺🐺🐺 #vegan #veganpodcast #thebeardedvegans #strikingattheroots #markhawthorne #activism" (via #InstaRepost @AppsKottage)
