Should vegans (re-)watch graphic videos of animal suffering?

In this episode, Nadia, Polly and Elianne discuss the Grey Area: “Should vegans (re-)watch graphic videos of animal suffering?” This episode touches on interesting topics such as to what extent graphic videos of animal suffering are a useful tool for non-vegans and vegans, whether activists should ask for consent when showing these videos and what happens if they don’t, if non-vegans can make “the connection” without watching these videos, the importance of sustainable activism and also the mental health of vegans: PTSD, compassion fatigue and what to do when experiencing secondary trauma. Here you can find a link to a helpful resource for vegan self-care that talks about avoiding and recovering from burnout, compassion fatigue and sustainable activism.
