We are the Artic
Protect America’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge


The Gwich’in and Inupiat people who live on the edges of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge have called this place home for centuries. Their very way of life depends on the bounty provided by the Refuge that they refer to as the sacred place where life begins.


But a rapidly warming climate and Big Oil and its allies’ desire to drill threaten this sacred place. Ask Congress and the president to protect the way of life of the Inupiat and Gwich’in. Ask them to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge once, and for all.


PETITION: Tell the President and Congress to Protect the Arctic Refuge

We urge the strongest protections for the Arctic landscape, wildlife and people.

The battle for the rights of animals is not only about animals. It is about us. Once we desanctify animals we desanctify all life. And once life is desanctified the industrial machines of death, and the drone-like bureaucrats, sadists and profiteers who operate them, carry out human carnage as easily as animal carnage. There is a direct link between our industrial slaughterhouses for animals and our industrial weapons used on the battlefields in the Middle East.
...


“All animal agriculture involves violence, suffering and death, including the most humanely produced dairy and eggs,” Francione told us. “The male chicks are ground up alive or pounded or gassed to death. If you are a feminist and you consume dairy you are confused. One of the worst things in the world is the sound of cows when their babies are taken from them. In a conventional dairy the calves are taken away the same day or the next day. In an organic dairy, which is a supposedly higher-level animal welfare ‘happy place,’ they are taken away two or three days later. The mothers cry for days. The fact that we will take a cow with a natural life span of 30 years, impregnate her six times and take away her baby six times and kill her after she has had mastitis for five years is dreadful. This is the commodification of the reproductive processes of a female other, the commodification of a mother and her baby. The reproductive process and the relationship of a mother and her child become a product. I don’t understand how someone can say, ‘I am a feminist, but I drink milk.’ ”
