Let me die at home

In light of the recent industry-imposed live export (very partial) ban, this episode features the talk ‘An Anarchist Analysis of the Campaign Against Live Animal Export’ by Jess Ison and Nick. In this talk, we critique the campaign based on anarchist, anti-racist and animal liberation perspectives. This talk was recorded at the 2018 Melbourne Anarchist Bookfair and you can see links to all of the sources referred to in the description of the talk on archive.org – you can also hear the full talk including a section from Lara Drew at that link.

For more on connections between animal liberation and anarchism, check out episode 202 and you can also hear about the Fast for Freedom mentioned in the talk on episode 192 and listen to episode 131 for more on mental health and animal advocacy.

You can donate to Launch Housing to support those sleeping rough to get into safe, long-term housing, check out The Australian Homelessness Monitor – commissioned by Launch Housing to give insight into the current state of homelessness in Australia and look into the Everybody’s Home campaign which calls for a better, fairer housing system for everyone.

We also play part of an interview we did with Kelly from the Roominations show on 3CR at the #PublicHousingParliamentaryVigil – which we covered last episode #217.

Finally, we play an interview Nick did on ABC Radio Tasmania with Melanie Tait on the issue of dogs being considered property under the law. This interview is based on Nick’s article on the ABC ‘The perils of pet ownership: your dog isn’t a ‘fur baby’, it’s your property’.

If you’d like to hear more on this issue, check out Nick’s discussion on ‘Pets and Animal Liberation’ with PhD candidate Zoei Sutton – on Freedom of Species radio show on 3CR.
