This is a statement of support for Black Lives Matter (BLM), and explicitly Black Lives Matter Toronto (BLM-TO), from animal defenders & communities against speciesism.

Mainstream “animal  rights” and vegan capitalism take up a lot of space in the social imagination of allyship towards non-human animals. Images of skinny white cis abled bodies, expensive food in gentrified neighbourhoods and abstract philosophical theories are common examples.
