Most of us weren’t lucky enough to be vegan from birth. Most of us were raised to eat meat, fish, eggs and dairy because our parents thought that was “normal” food. Happy in the assumption that animals were farmed and slaughtered humanely they didn’t question it. But they certainly would have questioned it if they’d been taught the whole truth about animal exploitation at school. Who wouldn’t?
As Paul McCartney said –
“If slaughterhouses had glass walls everyone would be vegetarian”
Of course we know the reason governments don’t tell children the truth about where their meat, dairy and leather shoes comes from – because those industries want to keep profiting from it. But now that the Earth is in jeopardy, maybe the authorities will listen to Stevan Zivkov Andricin’s petition:
The content of the curriculum ‘Animals in Modern History’ is completely presented in a non-fiction textbook. Chapters or lectures are not arranged chronologically, but divided by topics: Animals in Warfare, Meat Industry, Animals in Entertainment, etc. The curriculum covers the history of the last 300 years, from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. This is a key historical period of human civilization in which animals were turned into ordinary things for the benefit of humans.
The project is now ready for global implementation. The beautifully illustrated Animals in Modern History book with a complementary documentary, Animals: A Parallel History, comprise a course on our relationship with animals in the modern world. As animals do not have the power of speech and their fate is not taught in schools, this movie is a modest attempt to show people the shared history.
Sign and share Stevan’s petition to UNICEF and make a foundation for irreversible change in the next generation.
