Animal Rights: Looking beyond one’s Plate

Speaker: Krishna Singh, Legal Counsel PETA Germany
Time: Sunday, 01:30 PM – 02:00 PM
Room: H1058

For the Animal Rights Movement it is essential to look beyond its plate, which means to realize that it is not just about „calculating“ animal suffering by numbers, which leads to blind out that animals are individuals with their own story, their individual life and their own rights. The movement needs to keep looking at the big picture, it shall not reduce itself fighting only factory farming and the production of meat as some groups demand. It is about the rights and respect for all animals, a goal to fight for and – once reached – makes everything else fall into place.
