Report of the conference of Contagio Antispecista at the festival Festa Antispecista (Milan – Italy, September 16, 2017)
The text that follows is the content of the speech given by Contagio Antispecista on the 16th of September in the context of the debate Michela Vittoria Brambilla and the commodification of veganism, which took place during the gathering Festa Antispecista at the independent center for art, culture and research Macao, in Milan.
While there are certainly a number of radicals who recognize the oppression of non-human animals and are fighting against it, we continue to see non-human animals offered as food items at many radical potlucks, bookfairs, and other anarchist gatherings. We believe this is a hierarchical form of oppression worthy of a much needed anarchist critique.
This short essay will attempt to address some of the most common anarchist objections to veganism. We aim to inspire a praxis of insurrectionary anarchy and eco-defense by asserting a position against speciesism and the objectification of non-human animals.

"Alf action for the financial damage in Velký Ratmírov city mink farm. 7th
August in night, we splashed around two hundred minks by nontoxic spray. No
more, because security or owners disturbed us. (Next time you will atacked,
bastards!) Minks are still waiting for death, unfortunately. This action we
devote all jailed animals and liberators and especially for jailed Czech
anarchists from sick police action called 'operation Fenix'. Long sentences
for us will entail more harder actions contra to you!!!! War continue.

1. Anarchism impoverished
Anarchism, for me, is struggle against all forms of domination. It is a beautifully simple idea that helps call into question every oppressive norm.
