Today, at 22.15 pm, an full length chapter of national program “En la mira (In sight)” will be about the treatment animals get in slaughterhouses and factory farms, and the work of EligeVeganismo. It’ll be 90 minutes long. It’ll be in primetime. National TV. Every TV in Chile will be able to see it. Right after the news.
I’m incredibly amazed and happy. It’s amazing to see where out work has gotten to. Hundreds or thousands of persons will see it tonight and finally question what they do to animals. Some of the journalists who participated into this went vegetarian, which is at least a little step in the right direction (I met them once but haven’t seen them since, so I’m not sure if they went vegan or vegetarian).
I’m profoundly proud of my fellow activists, particularly the ones who are working investigating places like slaughterhouses, dairy farms, factory farms, etc. I know how depressing and stressing it is, and I know I wouldn’t be able to go to such places every week, month after month. They are so fucking brave and deserving of my admiration.
I just hope that tomorrow will be a much better day than today, and that we’ll wake up to a much better world.
