Vegans against violence; veganism is nonviolence, Ahimsa

“Veganism is about nonviolence. First and foremost, it’s about nonviolence to other sentient beings. But it’s also about nonviolence to the earth and nonviolence to yourself.” ~ Gary L Francione

It troubles me when I see vegans calling violent retribution on those who harm animals. I fail to see how it is possible to reconcile advocating violence against one species of sentient beings (humans) while advocating nonviolence against others. Furthermore, such comments achieve nothing except to provide ammunition for those with an interest in opposing veganism and what it stands for.

"Violence is the problem; it is not any part of the solution." ~ Gary L. Francione
