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.

This episode features Lara Drew and Dan Kidby from Veganarchy on their article ‘The lines are being drawn, the case for a divided animal movement’. Also covered in the discussion is: promoting intersectional animal activism that focuses on ending all forms of oppression rather than single issue animal activism that ignores or sometimes even contributes to human oppression; the origins of the term “intersectionality” – an article by Kimberle Crenshaw; the book The Dreaded Comparison: Human and Animal Slavery; and personalised, polemic writing versus formal, “objective” writing.
