Animals: A New Ethics (Resurgence Magazine)

Read wide-ranging essays by animal advocates representing numerous disciplines

"Animals: A New Ethics" is a landmark publication: a unique and powerful gathering in print and online presenting the voices of some of the greatest animal advocates of our time, the top international experts—campaigners, activists, authors, philosophers, scientists, lawyers, charity heads, poets and artists—each of them shining lights, visionaries and pioneers in the field of animal rights. You can read the guest editorial here and read some essays here including two of my own (please see and). 

Contributors to this special issue of Resurgence magazine include: Tom Regan, Marc Bekoff, Jan Creamer, Ingrid Newkirk, Juliet Gellatley, Mark Gold and Richard Ryder, plus there's an interview with former Queen guitarist, Brian May about his campaign to save Britain's badgers from government culls.

In this special, one-off edition of Resurgence, "Frontline" reports from Compassion in World Farming, Animals Asia Foundation, Egyptian Society For Mercy To Animals, WSPA, IFAW and Nowzad Dogs. Feature articles focus on human speciesism, animal consciousness, emotions and morality, intensive farming, slaughter and vivisection.

This issue also highlights the need for legal rights and for translating ethics into policy, the hunting ban, the triumph of the recent bull-fighting ban in Catalonia and the truth behind the fur trade.

There are arts pieces on German Expressionist painter, Franz Marc (a natural empath), elephant art (by elephants, for elephants), poetry from Heathcote Williams, Benjamin Zephaniah, Virginia McKenna and Maureen Duffy, and vegan recipes from top chef, Andy Murray.

"Animals: A New Ethics" is an inspirational rallying call for the green and animal protection worlds to come together.
