Vegan-Omnivore Alliance

Writer Tom Philpott at grist.org urges vegans and omnivores to join together to fight animal factories.

In his article “Introducing the Vegan/Omnivore Alliance Against Animal Factories,” grist.org writer Tom Philpott laments the rift between vegans and what he calls “conscientious omnivores.” Instead of debate between each other about meat consumption, he urges vegans and omnivores to stand together against factory farming. Since factory farming is responsible for the vast majority of meat production, Philpott concludes that “vegans and omnivores agree on 99 percent of the meat issue,” saying it’s time to “put aside the other one percent—for now—roll up our sleeves, and clasp hands.” Philpott has created Twitter hashtag #VOAAF for those who wish to show support online.
