About the Book
From Vegan Publishers - edited by Dr. Will Tuttle.
Circles of Compassion: Connecting Issues of Justice is a series of essays by internationally recognized authors and activists that focus on how seemingly disparate human, animal, and environmental concerns are actually connected.
Authors also provide practical guidance about how to make individual, systems, and social changes to effectively create a just and peaceful world.
Proceeds benefit AWFW friend and grant awardee, Food Empowerment Project.
"Hunger, Meat, and the Banality of Evil" --
provides a glimpse into some of the tangible ways in which meat is a form of overconsumption and waste that redistributes food away from the poor.
It connects hunger and meat as systems of oppression that normalize atrocities against people and animals—thus desensitizing individuals and society, and bolstering other forms of systemic violence and injustice.
On a more personal level, it provides a feel for the actual suffering of both people and animals. It highlights the human actions and intention that distinguish suffering from injustice... and harm from violence.
