Why should humans turn toward a plant-based diet for themselves, not only for the animals?

Why should humans turn toward a vegetable-based diet for themselves, not only for the animals? Human beings over-stress the planet to produce inordinate amounts of grain to feed animals that we label as “livestock”. Feeding 70 billion land-based animals that we exploit, torture and slaughter each year, has a vastly[…]

Dispelling the notion that animal agriculture is beneficial to the environment

Citizens must stand & fight an unconstitutional ban on undercover farm footage!

Activists be proud… It is more than obvious that our actions have got them running scared and this is proof. Legislators in four states are proposing bills (Idaho HB166, Minnesota Senate File 1118 & House File 1369, Iowa H.F. 589, and Florida S.B. 1246) that will ban undercover farm slaughter footage.[…]

Humanity’s Flesh Addiction Exacerbates Global Extinction

The Shameful Reality Behind Circus “Concentration Camp” Suffering

The true life of a circus animal, which, under the “Big Top”, is hidden behind the illusion of colored popping corn, clowns and the bright lights of the show. A rational human being would realize that it is not possible, even for those with the best of intentions, to provide[…]

The absurdity of human brutality: The plight of the moon bear

For obvious reasons, it is a difficult subject to tackle because of the vast effect that the factory farming (which we at AELLA like to refer to as the “factory food” industry, because it encompasses fast food)[…]
