A brave lady called Sasha rescued 53 pigs from an illegal slaughter house in Wales.

These rescued pigs now number 91 because some have had babies.

But they can all live out their lives without fear of harm because of Sasha
Sasha has done the hard work. We now need to try to support her by paying to feed them as #Vegans we must be prepared to do this if we want to rescue them. Please read their story then become a #Pigoneer
It costs less than a coffee per month, as vegans, committed to ending non human abuse, don't we have a responsibility to help with ongoing care? I think we do and this is a fantastic way of doing that
Many of us coming together to make it a small burden on each of us

Does new study mean #vegans have weak bones? No❌
Does study mean you need meat for healthy bones? No❌

A #thread on #new study:
Vegetarian & vegan diets & risks of total & site-specific fractures: results from the prospective EPIC-Oxford study…
Main Finding:
Data showed 15 more cases of hip fracture in vegans vs meat eaters per 1000 ppl over a 10 year period

⚠️Consider: All enrolled in the study between 1993-2001, last diet assessment 2010
Why it matters:
1. Much #lower knowledge about veganism 10-15-20 y ago vs today
2. Less awareness re protein, RT/muscle & bone health
3. #PlantBased protein options uncommon in marketplace

Reasons for increased fractures in vegans, *important statement: "Fractures at some sites, especially at the hip, may also be more related to osteoporosis than fractures

Let’s take a moment to remember the #suffragists who were #vegetarian, a thread. They recognized how oppressions were connected. Some of the information is from my book, The Sexual Politics of Meat now celebrating its 30th anniversary of publication. #suffrage /1
Let’s be clear: Susan B. #Anthony was NOT a vegetarian. She was happy to get to Delmonico’s in Manhattan after staying with the #Grimke sisters, who were. She did attend a vegetarian banquet in 1853, where the toast was to “Total Abstinence, Women’s Rights, & Vegetarianism.” /2
Matilda Joslyn #Gage, a radical activist & co-editor of the 1st 3 volumes of “The History of Woman Suffrage” with Elizabeth Cady Stanton & Susan B. Anthony, was a vegetarian. She was later written out of the history for her radical views. See the work of @Swagner711 /3

[1/10] C'est en ma qualité de député et d'éleveur que je m'exprime aujourd'hui sur la question du #RIPPourLesAnimaux pour m'ériger contre ses apparentes bonnes intentions qui ne sont, en réalité, que le Cheval de Troie de revendications plus radicales.
[2/10] Nul doute que présenté comme tel, ce #RIP qui propose l'interdiction entre autres, l'abolition de l'élevage en cage, l'interdiction des élevages à fourrure et la fin de l'élevage intensif, n'emporte l'adhésion populaire.
[3/10] Qui derrière ce #RIP ?Hugo Clément, journaliste pro-végan qui a participé à Fort-Boyard qui abrite des 🐯en captivité et que j'ai invité, en vain en Creuse pour lui montrer les réalités du monde agricole ou X.Niel, qui finance des entreprises de viandes alternatives

For reasons I'm sure made sense at the time, I started sending a coworker random fungus facts every workday morning just as a random interesting thing while we're all self-isolating. Since a few folks on twitter also expressed an interest, I'm going to tweet a few also! 🍄
Disclaimer: although I studied mycology and have an M.Sc in plant pathology, that was a long time ago and I no longer work in the field, so if I contradict a current expert I'm probably wrong. Also, feel free to mute this thread if you hate fungi! 😛
First of all, what are fungi? You may think mushrooms are fungi, and kind of true - in fact, mushrooms are the reproductive body of some (not all) types of fungi, kind of like fruit are the way trees distribute seeds. Many fungi do not make mushrooms.

This is a second thread for #white #vegans & #animalrights activists who recognize we are often the problem in the way we articulate issues having to do with the other animals. What if white privilege has influenced the way we have framed issues around veganism and animal rights?
This is a part of journal entry from the early 1980s when I was involved in a very difficult battle around integrated housing and racism. I wrote “Racists who do not see that they are being racist. If this is true as a paradigm—racists do not see racism... Image
...what is there about me that is racist but I fail to see it?"
I tried to learn a methodology for confronting that racism that goes unacknowledged: Assume your own ignorance & if you have received feedback that something you said or did or endorsed was racist—hear the critique.

This thread is for #white #vegans & #animalrights activists who recognize we are often the problem in the way we articulate issues having to do with the other animals. One step is to learn as much as you can about #WhiteSupremacy & #WhitePrivilege. Read! #BlackHistoryMonth2020
Do you know the history of the Civil Rights movement? You could start by reading vol 1 of "America in the King Years," "Parting the Waters" by @taylorbranch.…
@taylorbranch In 1962, the Civil Rights Commission was going to make a very strong statement about racism. Politically, it would be problematic for President Kennedy. JFK was told "It is legal for the police to use dogs." So, turn to "Afro-Dog" next.…

Hi #vegans, I will not give you concessions until you deal with the white-supremacists and racists in your midst.

The white supremacist vegans believe that my worth is not equal to that of a cow but that the cow has more value because I am not white.
BTW, Eco-fascists who are all white nationalists are also mostly vegans:…

Je profite de mon insomnie pour vous parlez de ce petit livret qui fait la promesse de vous guider dans un #Careme2019 #vegan #MillionDollarChallenge
[Spoiler] Les #vegan qui ont commis ce guide se foutent complètement du #careme. Vous pouvez lui donner tout les noms que vous voulez, il y a une seule référence à la bible. Ce n'est pas une citation, c'est une paraphrase qui justifie le veganisme.
Mais en voulant faire croire qu'ils ont lu le livre de la genèse ces braves types font une erreur grave, à défaut d'avoir lu la Bible, les catholiques entendent la Bible à la messe et ils savent que Dieu a rendu l'homme maître des animaux. Pas très très #vegan.

Something I think about a lot is how #veganism interacts with privilege. Veganism for wealthy, white Americans is very different from veganism for other demographics. When communicating your activism, this is such an important aspect to consider regarding your audience.
When you’re poor, yes rice and beans are cheap but that gets exhausting after a while. For many in rural areas, finding options is very limited. It’s an extra weight removing yourself from already small social circles.
I don’t think this justifies killing animals for consumption, but it’s a different narrative from somebody with a reasonable salary in a populated city.
