El Festival Anti-especista* es más que un evento, un proceso de enraizamiento colectivo que busca promover la liberación animal desde una perspectiva social y política en barrios populares de Bogotá, articulando diversas expresiones como el arte, la cultura y la música, como herramientas para la transformación. El espacio también se construye como un escenario de discusión, intercambio de perspectivas, aprendizaje colectivo y denuncia a todas las formas de explotación animal y al orden especista y antropocéntrico que las legitima.

Como proceso, es el resultado del trabajo que distintas organizaciones y personas han venido realizando desde distintas formas de trabajo y que confluyen en el festival para hablarle a la sociedad como una apuesta unificada de transformación social. Jóvenes, artistas, ambientalistas, estudiantes, trabajadores/as de la cultura, nutricionistas, activistas confluyen para hacer de este espacio un proyecto colectivo que reúne a diversas voces del movimiento por la liberación animal y del movimiento social en general.

La difícil situación que vive el país, la agudización de las contradicciones sociales y políticas, las deficientes condiciones en que vive la mayoría de la población, la crisis ambiental como resultado del modelo económico, son el resultado acumulado de una profunda crisis social. Una consecuencia de esta crisis, invisibilizada, estigmatizada y muchas veces ridiculizada, es la esclavitud de los animales, discriminados por pertenecer a otra especie. Con el Festival Antiespecista queremos visibilizar esta forma de discriminación, construida socialmente para dominar y explotar a los animales no humanos.

Queremos ampliar el discurso, entenderlo en el contexto concreto de la realidad colombiana, ponerlo en discusión y fomentar alternativas reales y factibles para la mayoría de la población. Es por esto que el Festival Antiespecista también se articula a propuestas de seguridad alimentaria, defensa de la soberanía y agroecología rural y urbana, como propuesta alternativa al modelo económico actual.

Este día, en una comunidad rural al sur de Inglaterra, varios hombres y mujeres decidieron crear las Sociedad Vegana como una propuesta al especismo antropocéntrico, rechazando todo producto de origen anima y organizándose contra la exclavitud, los agro-negocios, la minería y la explotación laboral.

LIBERACION ANIMAL – Kontragolpe

Posted in Colombia, Musica with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on junio 1, 2011 by No Ego

“Es nuestro deber dedicar este trabajo a la memoria de cada animal que a sido sacrificado de manera injusta e indigna, a todas las vidas que seguiran apagando su llama en nombre de la ignorancia y la insensibilidad que enseña nuestro sistema de pensamiento actual: el decadente antropocentrismo de la especie humana.

Vegan Rebels of the Bio-apocalypse in “Year of the Flood”

Posted in Libros with tags , , , on noviembre 17, 2009 by No Ego

What happens when you get the apocalypse you wished for? That’s what a band of eco-subversives called the Gardeners find out inMargaret Atwood‘s Year of the Flood, a story of humanity destroyed for meddling too much with the environment.

Set in the near future,Year of the Flood is a retelling of Margaret Atwood’s apocalyptic classic Oryx and Crakefrom the perspective of characters who were only marginally involved in the massive act of bioterror unleashed by the previous novel’s sociopathic Utopian scientist Glenn (AKA Crake). While Glenn and his damaged, upper-class buddies were cooking up a virus to end the world, the peaceful Green separatist Gardeners lived in squats, tending vast urban rooftop gardens. The Gardeners’ leader, who goes by the name Adam One, preaches a kind of new agey Catholic environmentalism, complete with days devoted to saints (like Saint Rachel Carson) and hymns.

We follow two women, the young, credulous Ren and the toughminded Toby, after they join the Gardeners. Slowly they learn the skills necessary to survive the social collapse – the “flood” – that Adam One predicts will come about as the result of rampant genetic engineering and pollution. Circumstances sweep the two women back out into the “exfernal world,” and they begin lives as service workers – Ren works at a sex club called Scales and Tails, while Toby takes a job managing a spa called AnooYoo that does biotech beauty treatments on wealthy women.

While Ren is relatively happy dressing like a bird and doing trapeze stripping for her clients, Toy stays in contact with the Gardeners via a secret chat room. She knows vaguely that her former brethren have splintered into two groups: Those who prefer Adam One’s peaceful ways, and those who work with Glenn on acts of bioterror. Still, Toby is unprepared for what happens next: Trying to purge the Earth of its greatest threat, Glenn creates a human-targeted supervirus that spreads like wildfire across the globe, literally melting people in their tracks.

Ren and Toby manage to survive, but now they have to deal with fighting off genetically-engineered animals gone wild. The pigs with human brain cells and the half-lion, half-lamb creatures developed by Bible literalists who want lions to lay down with lambs are particularly pernicious. The two women inch towards their inevitable reunion across a landscape heaped with the refuse of scientific innovation gone horribly wrong, though we are never certain that they or any humans will ultimately survive.

Unlike Oryx and Crake, whose main characters come across as irredeemable, Year of the Flood is an oddly hopeful book. The Gardeners’ odd survivalist wisdom is exactly the kind of belief system you’d need to survive a global pandemic. Members of the group know how to forage in an urban wasteland, and what to eat in the forest. Equally important, they possess a reverence for the ecosystem that’s completely missing from traditional Western religion.

It’s clear that Atwood has thought a lot about the kinds of helpful myths she’d implant in human history if she could restart the world: That’s why every few chapters we hear a sermon from Adam One, along with a hymn. It’s an interesting exercise in speculative worldbuilding. If the Gardeners can survive – and seems as if they might – their beliefs could become the moral lifeblood of a civilization founded on renewable resources rather than environmental exploitation.

For this reason alone, Year of the Flood is an interesting companion piece to Oryx and Crake. In the latter, Atwood investigated what it would take to genetically engineer the perfect posthumans. Glenn and his colleagues secretly build these perfect beings by synthesizing hardy, disease-resistant humanoids who eat nothing but leaves, communicate through healing purrs and birdsong, and experience no sexual shame. Now, with Year of the Flood, she imagines what’s required to culturally engineer a new human society out of novel mythologies and social structures created by the Gardeners.

We never know for sure whether the genetic or social experiment will save what’s left of humanity, and that’s a good thing. Atwood pulls us into the lives of her characters so that we’re forced to contemplate the true and deadly precariousness of our future as a species. You may not agree with the way she’s framed the problem – the science in this novel is fanciful at best – but it’s hard to deny that she’s asking the right questions.

Aqui un disco de hip-hop vegan/combativo desde Donostia, lo que mas me gusta de este tipo de musica son las letras y vaya si este duo sabe argumentar una critica, con canciones como PLANETA VEGA donde dejan claro su postura como veganos y critican la crueldad humana con las otras especies animales y escupen un mensaje de desprecio a cualquiera que no respete a los animales; GUERRA SUCIA en la que hablan de las malditas drogas y como las utiliza el gobierno para controlar la juventud; EN TODA LA PRENSA el titulo ya dice por donde va, y otras como MUNDO INGENUO, RESPONSABILIDADES, DUEÑO DE MI DESTINO, en fin un disco sin desperdicio. Recomendadisimo.

EDGE
Perspectives on drug free culture

WORLD PREMIERE this Saturday Oct. 3rd 8:PM
Helen Mills Theatre ( map )
TICKETS HERE!

28 years after the band Minor Threat released the song ‘Straight Edge’, the counterculture known as Straight Edge has become a worldwide phenomenon that unites individuals rejecting all forms of intoxication.
The most widely associated perception of Straight Edge involves abstinence from alcohol, tobacco, other drugs and promiscuous sex. Since it’s origin in the early 1980’s these beliefs have spread all over the world, connected through the Punk and Hardcore music scenes.
Through interviews with musicians that directly shaped the idea of Straight Edge from its inception until today,EDGE – perspectives on drug free culture reveals that the abstinence from drugs was established as a youth counter culture rejecting a society dominated by substance abuse and hegemony.
Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi), Ray Cappo (Youth of Today, Shelter) and Karl Buechner (Earth Crisis, Freya) give witness to their perception of the history of Straight Edge, why it was so important to them and what it changed in their personal and professional careers. But they also address problems like violence, sexism and intolerance that emerged within Straight Edge, and how it changed the ’scene’ as well as its public image.
Furthermore, EDGE explores the lives of 9 individuals, that identify as Straight Edge. Their reasons range from negative experiences with drugs to maintaining a healthy lifestyle to political reasons. Through a very close and personal look into their daily lives, we see how their decision to live ‘poison free’ has changed the world for them.
But how do people discover Straight Edge? How do women experience Straight Edge subculture? What social backgrounds are shared by people new to the scene and what makes someone turn Straight Edge? How does mainstream culture perceive this movement?
EDGE is looking for answers to these questions on a roadtrip behind and beyond the scenes of the Straight Edge subculture.
