Marilou Boutet

The literary director and author of the collective book (V)égaux, vers un véganisme intersectionnel discusses during this conference the link which weaves the oppression of animals to other marginalized human groups. Why are there so many queer people in the defense of animals? Where does this idea that strong men eat meat come from? What does it mean to call the other a cow or a monkey? Therefore, Marilou presents a new facet of veganism, that of a political movement imbedded in feminist, antiracist and anticapacitist battles. They also introduce the concept of fun activism, that is, how to make happiness inherent in our battles. What happens to our battles when they arise from a desire to come together, to let ourselves be transformed by tomorrow?
