Abolitionist outrage
What the vegan movement can learn from anti-slavery abolitionism in the 19th century
Wlodzimierz Gogloza

Animal rights activists, especially those of a more radical bent, tend to look for parallels between their strategies and the strategy of the nineteenth century American anti slavery abolitionists such as William Lloyd Garrison and his supporters. The aim of my presentation is to show that most of the supposed affinities between those positions are false and based on a superficial understanding of the original abolitionist movement and the social and political reality in which it emerged. At the same time, however, I will attempt to prove that the modern animal rights movement can learn a lot from the Garrisonian Abolitionists and their intra-movement debates.
