Season 1, Episode 8.  In this episode, we hear from Connie. Connie is a founding member of the Agriculture Fairness Alliance and Vegan Justice League, based in the US. She speaks about the need for vegans to get political, and direct much needed resources into lobbying for system change. Connie explains how the supply and demand rhetoric of the vegan movement fails within a food system rigged by government and the industry, resulting in overproduction and stockpiling. Human and nonhuman animal issues are inextricably linked, and a holistic approach is needed if we want to achieve animal liberation.
