In this episode of Days of Revolt, host Chris Hedges sits down with legal scholar, animal rights activist and longtime vegan, Gary Francione. Francione begins by unpacking criticisms of the vegan movement, specifically addressing the structures of power that control the means of food production and access. He defends veganism from a moral standpoint, and explains how violence against animals is merely one form of violence inflicted by humans.
