If you drink the milk from a mother cow, you need to learn about the dark secret of the dairy industry and then decide if you still choose to be part of it.
In 2009 in Piedmont Italy, Fedy set up “La Piccola Fattoria degli Animali” (The Little Animal Farm) https://www.facebook.com/PigWhisperer/
This would be a place devoted to pigs saved from slaughterhouses and factory farms, but which would also give hospitality to dogs and cats that have been ill-treated or abandoned.
We caught up with Fedy and asked her some questions.
Can you tell us where the idea came from and how you managed to bring it about?
Let me start by telling you a little story that will surprise you. Last year, three days before my birthday, my mother told me that I was supposed to be born on November 11. Everybody was Read More
The absolutely brilliant 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood The Handmaids Tale has been adapted by Hulu into a critically acclaimed and multiple award winning TV series of the same title.

An industry which breeds, confines, exploits and prematurely kills at least 56 billion sentient land animals (and countless marine animals) every year; is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution and habitat destruction (and many more); and offers products which directly promote our biggest Read More
Capitalism, as we know it, is dying. We are coming to an end of certain presumptions and thought patterns that we have so far taken as normality and acceptable – industrial agriculture is the obvious example.
I am aware that many object to the severity of my language; but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or to speak, or write, with moderation. No! Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the ravisher; tell Read More
My name is Lynn and I am a vegan/animal rights activist. My mission in life is to educate people about the animals our society refers to as 'food' animals. To achieve this goal, I am working to set up a vegan sanctuary:
