We’re joined by Jen Perry, one of the main organisers of the Cruelty Free Festival WA, for this entire episode. We discuss this festival and how it puts into practice our support for intersectionality – bringing together a wide range of human rights, environmental and animal rights causes. We also discuss the recent protests against shark culling and linking opposition to the shark cull to a broader animal rights philosophy, The Sistah Vegan Project, avoiding gender stereotypes when discussing attitudes towards animals (Jen is no “cow hugger”!), critiques of term ‘cruelty-free’, and why all progressives should go to Berlin and the ICAS Oceania conference. To find out more about the Cruelty Free Festival, you can read an interview with Jen about the festival on Viva la Vegan! and you can also hear Nick discuss the festival on Team Earthling.
