Animal Rebellion

Many historians and advocates believe the two World Wars put back rights for animals by at least sixty years. This episode looks at the sweep of the twentieth century and the developments for animal legislation, protection, and the growth of the animal advocacy movement around the planet, building on the nineteenth century’s existing legislation and the spread of anti-cruelty (but not rights) thinking around the world. We see how the notion of bearing witness to the suffering of animals resonates in today’s activism, as evidenced by the contemporary activities of Animal Rebellion and protests outside slaughterhouses.
