Thanks to the @thetorontostar for covering another great weekend of activism in Toronto. Link in bio. ❤️🐷🐓🐮❤️ • ‘The very point is to interrupt public life, your everyday doings, the norm, to bring your attention to the 800 million farmed animals, three million fur bearing animals and countless marine animals slaughtered unnecessarily in Canada each year.’ • “Disruption causes the public to notice animal victims and question the status quo. It forces the public to choose: which side are you on?” explains Toronto activist, Anita Krajnc, who made headlines in 2015 after she was criminally charged for offering water to thirsty pigs on their way to slaughter. She was eventually acquitted, in the precedent setting case. • “Organizers at Extinction Rebellion and now Direct Action Everywhere and the Animal Save Movement are studying Mark and Paul Engler’s book, This is an Uprising, in their hopes of replicating lessons from Gandhi and the Civil Rights Movement,” Krajnc says. “For Gandhi, employing the right tools for social change was a science. Mass disruption, self-sacrifice involving mass civil disobedience, and escalation can create trigger events and moments of whirlwind that shift activism and public opinion to the levels needed to succeed.” 💔🐷💔 👉🏽call to action: shut down Fearmans Contact “Sofina Foods” owner Michael Latifi at 905 747-3333 and mlatifi @sofinafoods.com and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) Livestock Transport Emergency Line: 1-877-814-2342 ‼️Have you joined us at one of our weekly vigils?

Qui vedete il trasporto verso la morte di animali che non hanno mai vissuto, provengono da posti peggiori di questo camion, non hanno mai conosciuto la luce del sole, mai un filo d'erba... Mai! Questo è il giorno della loro morte nel quale per la prima volta vedranno il sole e anche un po' di erba da lontano... Vi sembrano galline queste? O zombi? Guardate le loro condizioni fisiche vi prego! Potete togliervi da tutto questo orrore diventando vegani! Si non è facilissimo bisogna impegnarsi, ma avrete nel cuore la consapevolezza che voi non state più facendo questo! #GOVEGAN #AMICINONCIBO #veganlife #veganforlife #stopanimalcruelty #stopanimalabuse #animalrights #friendsnotfood #respectlife #choosevegan #veganlifestyle #stopcruelty #veganfortheanimals #veganism #activism #veganfortheplanet #veganforhealth #think #loveanimals #vegansofig #maketheconnection #animalliberation #freedom #seiveganose #pictoftheday #animallover #animalselfie #crueltyfree

Think about the way the fashion industry has been structured. On a superficial level, it has come to uphold a very narrow view of beauty: an incredibly young, thin, and non-diverse standard that hardly represents the wide range of women right across the globe. On a psychological level, it is an industry that’s driven by newness. So if you aren’t keeping up with the latest trends, then you are instantly deemed ‘unfashionable’ and therefore irrelevant. But who governs this notion of ‘relevance’ and since when has it been an external power? Writing for Business of Fashion, Helena Pike describes gender parity as an “elusive goal” for many industries, but she also points out that fashion is no exception here. Men disproportionately dominate the top roles across all areas of the business, which “is a particularly ironic state of affairs for an industry where women make up the overwhelming majority of the consumer base,” she writes. And this only renders fashion’s exploitation of the female psyche in harsher relief. If men are occupying most of the top jobs in fashion – an industry that’s directed primarily at women – then it stands to reason that it’s those same men encouraging women to feel as though they’re not young enough, thin enough or ‘fashionable’ enough. In that light, then, the whole trend cycle seems just as much a form of female brainwashing as it is a commercial apparatus. And what makes this vicious cycle even more exploitative is the fact it’s usually the female production workforce that’s expected to pay the price for keeping us ‘on trend’. According to Fashion Revolution’s 2015 White Paper, “systematic exploitation remains rife” in garment factories such as those in Bangladesh. Sexual harassment is commonplace in these workplaces as well, but it is coupled with the likes of “excessive hours, forced overtime, lack of job security, denial of trade union rights, poor health, [and] exhaustion,” just to name a few. What’s more, women dominate this sector of the industry, but men govern it.

Aliyah Strauss, 83 years old, among the founders of the "Women in Black" movement, is one of the strongest symbols for #feminine #activism in the history of #Israel. In a personal interview with a #SocialTV reporter, Aliyah talks about the awareness that awoke in her regarding the Palestinians, about her achievements, her hopes and let downs , and about Ideological heat that is burning in her to this day. Aliyah takes part in protests, and tries to change perceptions about #coexistence of #Jews and #Arabs in the country, while resisting the #occupation.

Do you have their blood on your hands? Are you responsible for their pain, suffering and death? . Dairy kills mothers and babies. Many are unaware that the dairy industry is the meat industry. Mama cows are sent to slaughter when they are seen as useless. Male calves are slaughtered as babies as their little bodies will never produce milk nor profit for producers. Do you know what your choices are supporting at the checkout? Do you care? . It costs nothing to live a kinder life. Absolutely nothing. Please see animals as more than products and seek plant based options in your days. Be the change they so desperately need you to be. . #ditchdairy #thesavemovement #perthcowsave #bearingwitness #slaughterhouse #vegan #ethical #alignment #choices #vegansofig #vegansofperth #perthvegans #activism #animalactivism #animal #liberation #standup #cow #save #cheese #icecream #love #babies #mama #dairy #cows #farms

THE AMAZON RAINFOREST IS ON FIRE. • • The Amazon Rainforest has been on fire for weeks, and is increasingly destroying trees, killing wildlife, and unconscionably contributing to climate change. NASA-released satellite images show the thick smoke can be seen from space - 8,668 fires have been detected in Amazonas, releasing 200 metric tons of greenhouse gas. • • At 4pm, the city of Sao Paulo was completely covered in darkness from the smoke being released in the Amazon - covering the sun and sky above it. Amidst the disastrous impacts of the forest fires, deforestation is continuously increasing under far-right president Jair Bolsonaro's leadership. The humidity of the Amazon has protected it against the fires in the past, but increasing deforestation and drought can completely alter the rainforest permanently. • • As a matter of fact, Brazil's National Institute for Space Research predicts that rainfall in the Amazon will be 40 - 50% below normal in the coming months. • • #prayforamazonia #savetheamazon #amazonrainforest #amazon #jairbolsonaro #climatechange #deforestation #brazil #thereisnoplanetb #justice #thedefiantmovement #daretodefy #socialjustice #activism #youthactivism #brazilia #amazonas

I: Inadequate Warmth On a cold winter’s day in February 2018 in London, Jennifer Lawrence stepped out to promote her movie, Red Sparrow. Dressed in a black, sleeveless Versace gown with a plunging neckline (almost to the waist) and thigh-high slit, Lawrence looked out of place posing for pictures with her other five male cast members who were dressed in coats, scarves, boots, and winter coats. Why? Because it was close to 4 degrees Celsius outside. Sure, she can say it’s her choice — after all, it was a beautiful dress — but a more nuanced understanding of the feminism of choice is needed. Did she really have a choice not to be warm, or was she the next in a long line of actresses everywhere being told to dress by prioritizing fashion over comfort, sexy over warmth — because their unique selling point is sex and not talent, unlike their male counterparts’? Bollywood seems to be especially good at this differentiation, with a big chunk of 90s song-and-dance set in the snowy mountains of Switzerland and the actress in sheer, chiffon sarees with backless halter blouses, while the actor is bundled up like he’s going to the North Pole. This has inevitably trickled down to everyday fashion, and the result is, women’s winterwear consists of long-sleeved tops, camisoles, cardigans, and jackets meant to be “layered.” Yes, because I want to buy four different types of clothes from the same shop to be as warm as a man will be in a T-shirt and a sweater? No! If it’s winter, give us warm clothes, for god’s sake?

H: Heels Here’s a doozy: high-heeled shoes were originally worn by men in horseback-riding cultures of the 10th century. With the migration of the Persian cavalry, the trend spread to Europe, and soon, the heels became associated with the horse-owning upper class. Around the 17th century, women slowly started wearing heels and they became a staple of aristocratic fashion of the time. Till this point, heels were not a signifier of gender. However, heels slowly started getting gendered in design, with men’s heels becoming broader and sturdier, and women’s heels being narrower and more decorative than functional. Even with the more practical design, around the 18th century, men deemed heels too uncomfortable, and thus, they became a woman’s shoe. With the invention of photography, pornography and pin-ups came to the forefront with posters of women in high heels donning almost every barrack during World War II. When the war ended, and the men returned, demand turned into supply; the hellish stiletto was invented, and the heel made its way into the street, office, and home. Except, you can’t drive, run or hike in them, and you need to stay away from grass, ice, and polished floors. Also, podiatrists believe that most types of heels are a recipe for blisters, swollen toes, throbbing heels, and even long-term health issues, like nerve damage. So, recently, when Japan’s Labour Minister declared that all women must wear heels to work if the employer so demands it, thousands of women were rightfully livid over it.

G: Garters Functionally, a garter is a band of fabric worn around the leg to ensure a sock or stocking is kept up. Starting from the 16th century, garters started gaining prevalence, with men also using them extensively. Around the same time, a wedding tradition required that a piece of the woman’s bridal gown be given to the wedding party as proof of consummation of marriage by the groom. This gave birth to the ‘sexual garter,’ which is worn by the bride on her thigh and removed by the groom as a sign of him owning her after marriage, and hence, her virginity. Today, while the archaic nuances of this tradition fade out, the memory of it lingers, with garters and stockings becoming an integral component of ‘sexy’ dressing and lingerie. Bonus fun fact: they almost always fail to hold stockings up, so functionally, it’s fake news.

from @veganactionswales - Ghost nets are fishing nets that have been left or lost in the ocean by fishermen. These nets, often nearly invisible in the dim light, can be left tangled on a rocky reef or drifting in the open sea. They can entangle fish, dolphins, sea turtles, sharks, dugongs, crocodiles, seabirds, crabs, and other creatures, including the occasional human diver. Ref. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_net More than 650,000 marine animals, including dolphins, whales, seals and turtles, are killedor injured in fishing nets each year. Ref. https://www.thedodo.com/in-the-wild/ocean-animals-dying-in-lost-fishing-gear Lost and discarded fishing nets, lines and traps, can take 600 years to decompose, as the majority of this ‘ghost gear’ is made of plastic. Animals caught in this incredibly durable fishing gear can suffer prolonged and painful deaths, often suffocating or starving for months.

F: Feminist Fashion How do you reconcile the desire to look good, for yourself and to other people (as is natural and necessary for the survival of the species), and the feminist idea that women are more than just how they look? Added to this contradiction, at the heart of the debate, are several other live-wire issues, such as the over-sexualization of the female body, body policing, self-esteem regulation by corporations who thrive off of women aspiring to look like the pictures the companies put out in the first place — the list can go on and on. But if fashion has been a site for oppression, it has also been a site for the zeitgeist. Women, since the suffragette movement, have chosen to resist sexist fashion not by refusal, but by reversal. Today, the red lipstick, which was considered only worthy of a harlot, is considered the go-to classic for a work meeting, thanks to the third-wave Riot Grrrls. Lingerie is marketed to women as clothing they should buy to ‘make themselves feel good,’ and heels, the excruciatingly painful invention, are now an integral part of a woman’s power strut towards and beyond the glass ceiling. In that sense, feminist fashion has always existed and will continue to exist as a counter-force to fashion by way of giving women a voice and a means of self-expression.

They were so curious and they all came over to see us, some were cautious and just wanted to stand and watch whilst some were lapping up the attention! It’s heartbreaking to think eventually they will be eaten!!

Boxes don’t grow on trees. Cans don’t ripen on vines. Processed and packaged foods often cost us more nutrients than they provide. Because processing tends to remove key co-factors we require for proper digestion and nutrient absorption, forcing the body to draw the necessary materials from its own bones and tissues. (This is bad news, y’all!) Processed foods also often contain added sugar, fillers, dyes, chemicals, and many other toxins that disrupt digestion, endocrine function, immune function, mental health, and other essential processes in the body. Steer clear of these “food-like substances”. . The most nourishing and nutrient-dense foods are whole and fresh — the foods that Nature, in its great wisdom, provides and packages organically, with all the naturally occurring, complex co-factors we require to properly digest and absorb their nutrients. (Thank you, Nature!) Whenever possible, choose these. . When it’s not possible, remember to read labels carefully. As a general rule: The simpler the ingredients, the better. . And for everyone — please, please join the food justice movement and support local and global environmental cleanup efforts. Because access to fresh, nutrient-dense, whole and unprocessed foods is a very serious social justice/environmental justice and public health issue. We need systemic change NOW... in ALL the ways! . . . #realfood #simple #ingredients #frankenfood #foodlikesubstances #wellness #nutrients #nutrientdense #nutritionaltherapy #nature #organic #guthealth #digestion #immunesupport #endocrine #mentalhealth #foodjustice #activism #environmentalresponsibility #socialchange #holistichealing #diabetes #type1diabetes #t1dlookslikeme #autoimmunedisease #edrecovery #food #relationship #change #attuningforks

My front page story with Extinction Rebellion founder Clare Farrell: “People need to get a grip because everybody is going to die...it’s not interesting to make organic t-shirts if you’re not expecting an inhabitable planet by the end of the century.” 🌍 We spoke about the climate emergency, the failure so far of government & big business to acknowledge & deal with it, her shift from fashion to environmental activism, the non-violent tactics used by XR, and about making their movement (seen by many as privileged, white & middle class) accessible to all. PLEASE READ - it’s an eye opener... 🌍🌍🌍 #extinctionrebellion #xr @clarefarrell @peckhampeculiar #climateemergency #climateemergencydeclaration #frontpage #localnews #localjournalism #activism #environment #environmentalactivism #climatechange #climateaction

Gestern bei der @liberationforkrefeld war richtig viel los! Die Leute waren sehr interessiert und blieben gebannt vor den Monitoren stehen. In einem Gespräch sagt ein Mann zu mir: "Das habe ich alles nicht gewusst. So habe ich das noch nie gesehen, vielen Dank, dass Ihr hier seid und aufklärt!" So geht es sehr vielen Menschen. Konditioniert durch die Gewohnheit. "Aber wir haben doch schon immer Fleisch gegessen!" ist ein ganz typischer Satz von jemanden, der genau das bestätigt. Ein Versuch der Rechtfertigung, weil die Argumente fehlen. Nein, "wir" haben nicht immer Fleisch gegessen! Könnten wir OHNE (Jagd)Hilfsmittel "Fleisch" fangen, verfolgen und festhalten? Haben wir körperlich die Kondition, Wendigkeit und Fähigkeit, eine schnelle Verfolgung durchzuhalten? Könnten wir in eine Kuh beißen, um ein Stück Fleisch rauszureißen? Hm, ist unser Gebiss denn ähnlich zu dem eines zb Löwen? Warum sollte sich das alles zurückentwickelt haben? Macht doch evolutionstechnisch gar keinen Sinn!? Auch unser Darm ist viel länger als bei einem Fleischesser. Finde doch mal heraus, warum! Aber wir haben uns nicht nur um die Menschen gekümmert und sie aufgeklärt. Stadttauben gibt es leider viel zu viele, und gerne werfen wir mal "einen Blick drauf", wie es ihnen geht. Schnell wird klar, dass es Tauben gibt, die unseren Abfall um die Füßchen geschnürt haben. Das sind Haare, Fäden, Zahnseide, Reste von Obstnetzen,... Mit ein paar Körnern angelockt , sind sie schnell gepackt und mit Unterstüzung von @forabetterworldx sind die Beinchen befreit. Neben einigen Gesprächen zu den Tauben konnten wir mit 15 Aktivist*innen 34 Menschen dazu bringen, sich weiter mit dem Veganismus und dessen positiven Auswirkungen zu beschäftigen! 📷 @forabetterworldx / Manuel K. #Staßenaktivismus #activism #veganactivism #animalliberation #animalliberationhumanliberation #Tierehabenrechte #vegansforfuture #TieregehörennichtaufdenTeller #compassionisnotacrime #allegleichliebhaben #forabetterworld #Mitgefühl #Herzöffnen #savetheplanet #beavoiceforthevoiceless #Stadttauben #Tauben #govegan #maketheworldabetterplace

We cannot underestimate the power of owning our story, of knowing how we have arrived at right now- it’s importance for self-acceptance, true belonging, healing and growth. I love this @michelleobama quote from her book #becoming Not only because it becomes a poignant book end to a powerful and well told story, but it reminds us that each story, no matter how seemingly ‘insignificant’, does in fact matter. Individually and collectively. That change and progress comes from showing up and being seen. I am starting to understand this more and more in my own life. Although this practice of embracing all I am is not easy, it’s incredibly empowering. • @brenebrown says that owning our stories is standing in our truth, owning the hurts, the challenges, the unjusts- that this can be personally transformative, but also within our families and communities too. Owning our collective stories, histories and experiences can build hope, challenge structures of privilege and power, and allow us to redefine who we are, not set by others expectations of us- to write our own endings. • I’ve met many young activists in my work and life and I’m inspired by every one of them. Who have navigated rough waters, and won’t let these experiences (or labels or diagnoses) define them. Finding our unique voice and the capacity to speak up and speak out is so vital- not only because other people’s assumptions of us can be limiting at best, harmful at worst, but because it’s the stories we tell ourselves about who we are and what we may be capable of, that can powerfully shape how we interact, experience and relate in the world. Sharing and listening to others creates connection, compassion, the willingness to do more, to do better. After all, we all just trying to do the best we can - sometimes that is simply to listen, share and speak together with those willing to do the same- with compassion, dignity and grace. . . . . . #michelleobama #brenebrown #owningyourstory #themindfulyogapsychologist #belonging #identity #compassion #holistichealing #holisticpsychology #activism #change #progress #love

E: Empire Waistlines Closer to the 20th century, with the women’s emancipation movement picking up steam, the female dress form started revealing the actual form of a woman’s body. With this, the bodice required a tighter fit to highlight the ‘natural waist’ and in contrast, the skirt became fuller to give the appearance of an hourglass figure. Soon, there were empire waistlines (where the darting is done right below the bust line to accentuate the chest and give the appearance of longer legs), basque waistlines (with a literal ‘v’ shape pointing down from your waist to your, well, pelvic area), mermaid dresses (which dramatically cinch in at the knee and then flare out) and princess waistlines (which have a small bodice and vertical seams running from under the arms to the bottom of the dress for a seamless, curvaceous look). Amid all this, men’s fashion saw the drastic progression of their pants getting longer and waist-coats getting shorter, and of course, a top hat! Do you see the difference?

D: Dresses …and skirts, and society’s obsession with how long or short they are. There’s really no winning with this one. If your dress/skirt is ‘too short’ you are whoreish, slutty, asking for it, provocative, cheeky or flirty. Below the knee, you are either proper, old fashioned, prudish or matronly. This policing of the length of dresses and skirts is deeply entrenched in our institutions: from sexist dress codes in schools that don’t allow you to wear a skirt any longer or shorter than the length of the arms, to the egregious sexualization of Maria Sharapova, one of the most talented tennis players in the sport, because of her “short skirts.” All this is done under the garb of protecting women from men’s uncontrollable sexual appetite, which may be stimulated at any point with zero provocation. How much of a woman’s legs can be seen dictates how distracted men can get, because in this rape culture that encourages victim blaming, “who asked her to wear a short dress and head out” remains the most common refrain after an incident of sexual violence.

Like an oil painting✨ • • • I’m doing my best to balance the unjustness of our daily experiences with finding and relishing in the joy these girls of mine provide • I don’t have the luxury of always keeping things light • I am very conscious this increase of “heaviness” on social media may seem like a new wave But consider this, when you recognise your behaviours being called out as racist and your ego retorts to the many times you’ve not been corrected before, know that •There’s a chance your isolated colleague didn’t feel they were in a safe enough environment to always speak up • There’s a chance your single BAME extended relative didn’t feel comfortable correcting your choice of words in your family home • And if you’re relying on classroom memories to gauge what terminology is and isn’t appropriate, I can almost certainly tell you that times have changed and there’s significant work to be done • When you see and hear BAME speak up in waves about their experiences, and it makes you feel uncomfortable, listen. Social media has created a platform where we’re swapping horror stories, but also seeking comfort and consoling. From daily micro-aggressions to the down right horrific. We’re using this platform to build each other up, inspire and educate. • If these discussions happen to leave a sour taste in your mouth, it’s ok to keep scrolling -but please don’t diminish the message. Lastly, just a reminder, you can be racist or anti-racist -there’s little middle ground✨

C: Corsets Corsets, as an undergarment, can be traced back to the 1600s in the West. They have since become a permanent and pervasive garment for women across classes. Corsets used steel, whalebone, and silk in order to “discipline the (female) body, improve physical appearances, correct physical deformations and help enhance social status in society while restricting, silencing and punishing the body from childhood to old age,” as described in this 2017 study on the history and culture of corsetry. Detailing the damage that tight-lacing a corset has on the body, The Lancet published an article on the subject on June 14, 1890, entitled “Death From Tight Lacing.” It went on to say that “[…] by this process almost every important organ is subjected to cramping pressure, its functions interfered with, and its relations to other structures so altered as to render it…a positive source of danger to them.” Today, the corset is used as an undergarment, as outerwear in high and everyday fashion, and as a fetish garment. Some might even say it has been reappropriated by women as a symbol of sexual liberation and feminine rebellion, but the truth remains this: corsets have always and will always embody the dichotomy between power and restraint, ideologically and painfully superimposed on the female body.

B: Bikinis When it comes to swimwear (and everything else), women have gotten the shorter end of the stick with plunging necklines and sharp V-cuts on bikini bottoms — which, in an ideal world, are just regular clothes. Pretty freeing clothes, actually. But the inherent public sexualization of a woman’s body further amplified by capitalism makes the foundation of the bikini murky. University of Princeton research found that when men were shown photos of women in bikinis, as opposed to “modestly dressed women,” the region of the brain associated with tools, such as hammers, lit up. So, while bikinis inherently are not sexist, their perception aids in the objectification of women and sexualization of the female body. In fact, before the skimpy version of the bikini we now recognize became a mainstay, even modest two-pieces were advertised as having been “designed from a man’s point of view.”

Druga aktivnost u sklopu obilježavanja Dana mladih je ➡️➡️Push Pauza ⬅️⬅️ Push Pauza je omladinski live talk. Kako je urađena povodom Dana mladih, glavna tema o kojoj su panelisti diskutovali je bila "Mladi ljudi koji mijenjaju svijet". Paneliste su činili: Stevan Josipović, koordinator lokalnog tima Šamac ASuBiH-a i srednjoškolac, Jovana Jotanović, ekološki aktivista, koordinatorica tima Teslić i učenica medicinske škole, prof. psihologije Tijana Damjanović i učiteljica i predstavnica Kutka za djecu Doboj, Sanja Živković. Kroz sat i po vremena, pričali smo o aktivizmu, koliko je važan u odrastanju i sazrijevanju mlade osobe. Jovana nam je pričala o ekološkim zagađenjima, koliko je to ozbiljna tema i kakav uticaj mladi imaju na to. Pričali smo o inkluziji, podršci koju dobijamo od profesora. Ivana Stanković nam je ispričala zašto je odlučila da napiše pozitivnu priču o profesorici u sklopu projekta "Pozitivne priče". Zahvaljujemo se svim panelistima kao i svim prisutnim na iskustvu i znanju koje su podijelili sa nama. #activism #asubih
