AUT University Animal Rights Club


Who are we?

We are nobody special.  In a world where 56 billion land animals are slaughtered every year for food, add to that an equal or greater amount of sea dwelling animals and not forgetting the millions of animals used for clothing,  for entertainment, hunted for sport, used in experimentation and annihilated in shelters, we are simply a group of people who say "enough!"   This has got to stop. 

How on earth can we do this you may be asking?  Where to begin?  Well, it's simple.  If you reject this horrific violence, suffering and death on animals, just don't take part in it.  We can end the exploitation, each of us can do something NOW, each of us can decide this instant to engage in the best form of activism there is.  You don't have to dress up in a silly costume.  You don't need to ask for donations or make donations or sign petitions.  You don't need to throw paint on people wearing fur coats or blow up a building.

The best thing you can do to help animals is to Go Vegan.  Then, if you want to do more, if you want to help us change the world and end the violence and exploitation, help us to educate others about veganism.   The reason billions of animals are tortured and killed each year is because WE make it happen to them.  We are the problem and we are the solution.  Stop demanding the products of the exploitation.  Stop eating animals, stop wearing their skins, stop giving money to the companies who experiment on them and exploit them for entertainment.  It's very easy to do.  The choice is ours.

Contact us if you are wanting to find out a bit more or if you want to get involved.  All you need to do to get involved is be willing to hear the ideas.  After that, it's up to you.  We need people who are not afraid to SPEAK UP for animals.  They cannot speak up for themselves.   The first thing to do is take yourself out of the cycle of exploitation, and that is easy, just go vegan.  Second, learn to educate others.  If you are interested in participating, or if you have questions, or you are curious, or even if you are skeptical about the whole idea and want to know more about it, we encourage you to come along and be a part of the newest and most important social movement of our time.

The AUT Animal Rights Club aims to be a resource center for people interested in animal rights, a gathering place for those who want to discuss the issues and get involved, a resource for anyone who is interested in veganism and a place of support for those who care about animals and may feel overwhelmed by the situation, or need help and advice on how to deal with issues encountered in their lives on a daily basis. The AUT Animal Rights Club is an environment where like-minded people can get together and share ideas on how to create a powerful, unstoppable voice for change.  It begins with us. 
We are a peaceful organization and promote non-violence.
Also, there is really delicious food involved. :-)
