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 have 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. As you read this, enormous amounts 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 their own lives. We believes 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 how the reality of the animals looks in different industries. We have worked undercover in slaughterhouses and in vivisection laboratories. Djurrättsalliansen have also documented the conditions on Swedish mink farms, pig farms, turkey farms and other animal factories. We also infiltrated a network of people involved in beastiality, and our investigation made the headlines and it also led to a ban in Sweden.
We also work a lot with vegan outreach and was the first organisation in Sweden to produce a ”Why Vegan?” booklet to give out 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 partakes in demonstrations. Some prefer to organize informational booths in town, hold fundraisers, hold talks or workshops or prepare food for our meetings. The point is that everyone can find ways to participate in our organisation that suits them. And don’t believe that your help doesn’t make a difference, because it certainly does. The animals need every one of us to take the fight for them. And together we make a difference!
