About the Swedish animal rights organisation Djurrättsalliansen
The Animal Rights Alliance, Djurrättsalliansen, was founded in 2005 as a local animal rights group working on a grassroots level. In 2007 we became a national organisation that has local groups in Stockholm, Göteborg and Malmö.
The philosophy of the Animal Rights Alliance is very simple. We think that animals should be free from oppression. While you are reading these words, an enormous number of animals are being killed in slaughterhouses, on fur farms and in the name of science. Our vision is a world in which all animals are respected and have the right to live their own lives. We believe in, and are fighting for, total animal liberation.
Animals are exploited in many ways – for food, clothing, entertainment and experimentation. We work with investigations to show the public the reality animals experience in different industries. For example, we have worked undercover in slaughterhouses and in vivisection laboratories. Djurrättsalliansen has also documented the conditions existing on Swedish mink farms, pig farms, turkey farms and in other animal factories. We also infiltrated a network of people involved in bestiality, and our investigation made the headlines. It also led to a ban in Sweden.
We also work a lot with vegan outreach and were the first organisation in Sweden to produce a “Why Vegan?” booklet to distribute for free. Djurrättsalliansen also organizes Vegomässan, the biggest vegan and cruelty-free fair in Sweden.
There are many different ways to be active in the Animal Rights Alliance. Not everyone participates in demonstrations. Some prefer to organize informational booths in town, hold fundraisers, give lectures, put together workshops or prepare food for our meetings instead. The point is that everyone can find ways to participate in our organisation that suit them. And don’t believe that your help doesn’t make a difference: it certainly does. The animals need every one of us to take up the fight for them. Together we make a difference!
