I’m vegan because I believe we have no right to eat, wear and use other animals. 56 billion nonhuman animals are tortured and murdered each year for our pleasure. Approximately 1,140,000 sea animals are tortured and murdered every 30 seconds for our pleasure. This is morally unjustifiable and it is unimaginable violence. I’m vegan because I believe in nonviolence and justice; so I cannot in good conscience promote anything less than veganism. I believe veganism is the most important social justice movement today and is the most important form of activism one can engage in.
