How should activists react to multiple systems of oppression? Should we fight one oppression at a time? Or all at once? How should we phrase our language when dealing with oppressors? What is the right way? What is the most effective way?
Show Notes

In this exclusive interview with Christopher Sebastian we explore the challenges of intersectionality and how it relates to the Animal Rights Movement. Intersectionality claims that various forms of oppression such as class, race, sexual orientation, disability and gender, do not exist separately from each other but are actually tied together.
Christopher-Sebastian is a staff writer at Vegan Publishers, part-time lecturer on speciesism at Columbia University, and social media manager of Peace Advocacy Network. He focuses on examining how speciesism exacerbates anti-black racism, queer antagonism and classism throughout western society. His work has appeared in the anthology Circles of Compassion: Connecting Issues of Justice edited by Dr. Will Tuttle, Dr. Breeze Harper’s Sistah Vegan Project, UK-based Barefoot Vegan magazine, and on Striving With Systems in collaboration with Brenda Sanders (PEP Foods), Charlotte Eure and Triangle Chance for All microsanctuary co-founders Justin and Rosemary.
