Until Every Animal is Free

FrontCover

Until Every Animal is Free is an insightful, candid work heralding the Animal Liberation Movement as the next logical step on the path of social justice, dispelling many of the myths that keep us from getting there. In it, Saryta Rodríguez challenges the Myth of Human Supremacy, and explores some of the ideological pillars behind the belief that humans are superior to all other animals. This book also discusses animal liberation theory, the role of nonhuman animals in scientific testing, and recent efforts to put animal liberation on the public agenda.

Works such as Peter Singer’s Animal Liberation laid powerful groundwork for interest in animal welfare by revealing the horrors of factory farming to the masses.  Since then, animal welfare concerns have given rise to humanewashing and the prominence of The Humane Myth: The notion that there is a “right way” to kill someone who does not want to die, provided that that someone is not human.  (Sadly, Singer himself is not vegan, and his work focused on a rejection of cruel animal treatment rather than the abolition of animal use altogether.)

The time has come for a follow-up, taking Singer’s work one step further by openly criticizing those institutions which have popped up in response to the gruesome realities Animal Liberation revealed, such as lax legislation and related marketing buzzwords as “cage free” and “grass-fed.”

The book was released on Thursday, October 1, 2015.
