Dylan Forest at Animal People Forum interviewed Animal Save Movement co-founder Anita Krajnc on the role of bearing witness at animal vigils. "What would it mean for systems of animal abuse and exploitation if instead of looking away, we turned towards animals who were suffering? Could this form of bearing witness be a force for change and a form of activism?"

Cargill: stop burning forests & polluting water
November 14, Edina, Minnesota
RSVP: 
event page
A new report from Mighty Earth documents the decades of environmental destruction, indigenous land grabs, and indigenous rights abuses brought about by Cargill (mightyearth.org/cargill).
The Amazon is still burning. Drinking water throughout the Midwest is polluted. And we know who is at fault: it’s Cargill. 
Cargill CEO David MacLennan is speaking at the Interlachen Country club on Nov 14. We’ve decided to show up too. 
Cargill is buying up commodities from some of the most unscrupulous traders in the business, who are burning down the Amazon and bulldozing forests such as the Brazilian Cerrado. Minnesotans have had enough.

 
DemocracyNow: The Edge of Democracy: Lula Is Freed in Brazil in Victory for Movement to Resist Bolsonaro
Brazilian filmmaker Petra Costa talks about her new documentary, The Edge of Democracy, which chronicles the imprisonment of Lula, the impeachment of former President Dilma Rousseff and the story of the dictatorship and democracy in Brazil.
"I think what we need, international attention is essential in this case in Brazil. It helped a few months ago with the question of the Amazon, which had a 90% increase in deforestation compared to the previous year."
The European Commission has signed a Free Trade deal with Brazil and MERCOSUR on June 28, 2019, giving a green light to destruction and exploitation of the Amazon rainforest for the production of cheap meat and animal feed.
This agreement needs European Parliament approval to become law so now is our chance to prevent it! 
Please sign and share our petition: STOP Free Trade deal between the EU and Mercosur
Watch our video to learn more.
Please help by signing our petition. Let's get to 200,000 signatures!
Stop Bolsonaro from destroying the Amazon!

L.A. Times: Marshall Islands declares a climate crisis
The Marshall Islands, a low-lying chain of atolls and key U.S. ally in the central Pacific, has declared a national climate crisis because of the mounting risk of sea-level rise, the nation’s president announced this week. 

 
Dunkin' Donuts is the latest large restaurant chain to launch a Beyond Meat burger. With 11,300 locations across 37 countries, this is a big win for plant-based offerings in general. To launch the new burger, the company put out this hilarious commercial featuring none other than Snoop Dogg.

Aveiro Animal Save report from their November 3 vigil: "We had the privilege of meeting a beautiful 10-year-old bull - a majestic, calm, curious and gentle animal. Rarely do we come across a bovine who has been allowed to live for so long. 'So long.' It could have been much more. He was a mating bull. That was his function during his life. We don't know the reason why he was taken to the slaughterhouse. Maybe he was replaced for an younger animal, with better genetics. Replaced as if he was an obsolete object. We will never forget him 💚"
