PODCAST 31.

 

My special guest for podcast 31 is long-time animal advocate, Kim Stallwood, who has been vegan since 1976 - his journey to veganism began with a summer job in a chicken slaughterhouse.

Kim Stallwood and I first met in the early 1980s when he was a central figure of the radicalisation of the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV). Kim quickly transformed the BUAV’s magazine from its rather weak and washy format, “Animal Welfare” to “The Liberator,” regularly reporting on the activities of the Animal Liberation Front and the various Animal Liberation Leagues.

In the podcast, Kim provides a brief summary of the origins of political campaigning in Britain, greatly influenced by Lord Houghton, and expounds his view that political campaigning in the 21st century is increasingly important if the animal movement is to achieve it’s goals.

I have never been keen on political campaigning, preferring vegan education initiative in civil society and on the cultural level. As you’ll hear, our conversation gets a little heated at times - but respectfully so!

I have the pleasure to present the 29th On Human-Nonhuman Relations Podcast featuring Professor David Nibert, best known in the animal advocacy movement as the author of Animal Rights/Human Rights: Entanglements of Oppression and Liberationand now Animal Oppression & Human Violence: Domesecration, Capitalism and Global Conflict.

In a wide-ranging interview, we talk about themes in both books, David’s new concept of “domesecration,” the history of other animal oppression and the role it has played in the oppression of humans and the growth of the capitalist system, David’s commitment to non-violence, and a couple of “movement issues.”
