I’ve been noticing recently on indymedia reports of a new group that has formed calling itself Antispe. It is a militant animal rights organization that appears to model itself heavily on Antifa, right down to pinching the Antifa logo but ruining the colour scheme.
I’ve had a wee butchers at their website and can’t seem to find anything other than an extremely vague statement of intent that says that they aim to militantly oppose ‘speciesism’. Now seeing as they have modelled themselves upon Antifa I have to wonder what they mean by direct action.
Antifa have a great reputation for valiantly and violently confronting Fascism wherever it rears its ugly head. i wonder if this is a plan of antispe?
If not why have they modelled their aesthetic so closely upon antifa? Are they planning on kicking the shit out of people who choose to eat meat? I can unfortunately see this being the case with at least some people who call themselves antispe, the animal rights movement has never had that much of a reputation for sanity now has it?
If I’m wrong then hopefully someone will correct me like but I doubt that I am.
