Noun: A person who does not eat or use animal products. ”
We stand for Veganism, we are Vegans who promote Veganism as being fun, easy, and the *least* other animals deserve, not to be seen as “things”, as an “it”, but respected as our friends.
While there are environmental, economic and health benefits for Veganism, we agree that ethical reasons take priority.
Worldwide, over 56 Billion land animals are killed each year*, why? Tradition, “we grew up doing this”? Perceived pleasure, “I like doing this”? Do these trump other sentient beings right to live?
We “use” other animals for their female bodies, a Cow for her breast milk, a Hen for her birds eggs, each products of her reproductive cycle. They all end up the same way, killed, and “thrown out” when their bodily secretion “production” lowers with age.
The animals we keep alive for “eggs” and “milk” also have their bodies sold for flesh, “meat”. We kill over 49 Billion Chickens each year*,why would we ever want to hurt our Chicken Friends?
We wear other animals skin, calling it “leather”, and many of us see a clear distinction between this “leather”, and that “EVIL” “fur”. Why? Hair left on, hair removed, does it make an ethical difference? Do we accept one because we are used to it, commonly despise the other because its less common?
INVSOC promotes Veganism, not welfare reforms that further entrench the killing and harm of other animals.
We “test” and experiment on other animals, they are “lab equipment”, much as a test tube, or alien who crash landed at Roswell are seen as “lab equipment”.
We do all this and so much more to other animals, why? Its easier to help animals in need than hurt them, such as this mouse found sneaking around in the dead of night, easier to wake up on hearing them, and quietly record a video of them being captured in a humane trap, to be released later! :-)
INVSOC stands for respecting other animals as their own sentient beings, not as our property, but instead as individuals.
INVSOC agrees with treating others how we’d like to be treated, of caring for other animals, there sure are plenty who need a good “forever home” out there!
Rescued Hens who’d formerly been kept by a farmer in cages enjoying a dustbath, also, see how a chick grows into a Hen before your eyes! :-)
INVSOC agrees that Chicken Friends should receive as many pats as they want! :-)
INVSOC’s charter also holds that theres nothing wrong with being an “enabler” to Mr Roosters Falafel habit!
