We asked the vegan hardcore band Eat Me Fresh about veganism and intersectionality:
Just like we do think there is no place for racism in hardcore and in the world as it is, so we think there is no place for speciesism.
Being a vegan doesn’t mean that we just don’t eat meat and dairy products, it means a lot more like that we care about the planet we live on, and that we don’t want to waste it.
And the thing is, that people think that they are so clever, and they just don’t mind that we weren’t the first on this planet. We are as ”immigrants” as every species is, but every species became a member on this planet, in another time or on another place.
We don’t own the planet, the planet owns us. And as we behave to it, it will behave to us.
Sexism, Racism, Speciesism, Nationalism and much more of these evil things should be over.
THIS IS THE 21st CENTURY. PLEASE PEOPLE WAKE UP!
