All over the world, people of many nationalities and ethnicity, are breaking free of our societal outdated indoctrination that other species of animals are lesser than humans; not deserving of basic rights, or should be dominated by humans. People are rising up and seeing that animals are here with us; not for us to use and exploit. This post is Vegan Education at its finest. I don't need to show you undercover footage of what goes on in slaughterhouses; the name says it all. I don't want to show you the many heartbreaking ways humanity is violent to animals. I need to educate you on the way it should be, the way it could be; because there's already animal sanctuaries in existence worldwide; displaying respect and concern for our animal cousins. This collection of photos speaks louder than words; that other animals are friends. Speciesism is the assumption of human superiority, that leads to the exploitation of animals. I advocate for fundamental rights of all sentient beings; human and nonhuman animals; because ALL animals are conscious and feeling beings. Enjoy these uplifting photos; most of them from sanctuaries; where animals are not ridden, chained, held in captivity, or used as a commodity. Several of the photos depict a special bond one human found with an animal. They all convey the message that animals are friends, fellow Earthlings, and that this world is their world too; regardless of species.
