Animal rights as expressed by but not limited to:
The People for the Ethical Treatment
of Animals (PETA) Foundation is a
UK-based charity dedicated to
establishing and protecting the
rights of all animals.
humans, animals are capable of
suffering and have interests in
leading their own lives; therefore,
they are not ours to use – for food,
experimentation or any other reason.
PETA and our affiliates around the
world educate policymakers and the
public about cruelty to animals and
promote an understanding of the
right of all animals to be treated

The Abolitionist Approach
The mission of this website is to provide a clear
statement of an approach to animal rights that (1)
requires the abolition of animal exploitation and
rejects the regulation of animal exploitation; (2) is
based only on animal sentience and no other cognitive
characteristic, (3) regards veganism as the moral
baseline of the animal rights position; and (4) rejects
all violence and promotes activism in the form of
creative, non-violent vegan education
Animal Equality is an international non-profit
organisation dedicated to achieving equal consideration
and respect for animals. Founded in Madrid, Spain in
January 2006 we are currently active in Spain, the
United Kingdom, Italy, Peru, Venezuela and Colombia.
VIVA Vegetarians International Voice for Animals
What does Viva! Do?
Viva! campaigns for a vegetarian/vegan world because
most farmed animals spend their short and miserable
lives in the filth of factory farms and are killed with
sickening barbarity – see here We expose this abuse by
secretly going inside these shameful places and filming
the suffering – publicising it with nationwide campaigns
that bring about change. Billions of animals are also
killed at sea causing immense suffering and the
ecological collapse of the oceans
League Against Cruel Sports - Home - End cruelty to
animals in sport
to expose and bring to an end the cruelty inflicted on
animals in the name of 'sport'
Uncaged Campaigns Against animal testing and experiments
We are a
peaceful international animal protection organisation
based in Sheffield, England. Our main campaigns are
against animal experiments (vivisection); against
xenotransplantation (animal to human transplants); the
global boycott of Procter & Gamble; for animal rights
and for democratic action on animal issues through the

2) If animal farming were to stop and we
were to use the land to grow grain to feed ourselves, we
could feed every single person on this planet. Consuming
crops directly - rather than feeding them to animals and
then eating animals - is a far more efficient way to
feed the world. This Viva! Guide looks at why eating
meat is a major cause of world hunger and how
vegetarianism can provide a solution.
