"Given what we know about the connections between animal agribusiness and climate change, water waste, pollution and more, why aren’t the major environmental organizations more vocal and straightforward about promoting the alternative to it?
Today, please respectfully ask environmental organizations to promote veganism as an easy, accessible and, most important, effective solution to human-caused ecological disasters. Preserving our planet and its inhabitants is of far greater importance than not alienating members and potential members. Environmental organizations should be leading the charge, not counting memberships, and we don’t have time to waste.

Not only are they “not very vocal” about it, there is nothing but absolute deafening silence coming from these organisations.
The people whose primary concern should be the wellbeing of our planet are quiet. It’s up to us. Please spread the word.

Fucking wow. The French Socialist Party once again proves that it has about as much to do with actual socialism as the U.S. Democratic Party has to do with actual democracy.
France’s Socialist government provoked outrage today by becoming the first in the world to ban protests against Israeli action in Palestine.
In what is viewed as an outrageous attack on democracy, Socialist Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said mass demonstrations planned for the weekend should be halted.
Mr Cazeneuve said there was a ‘threat to public order’, while opponents said he was ‘criminalising’ popular support of the Palestinian people.
