I’ve been alive long enough to remember debating South African apartheid with thugs who now use the exact same justifications for Israeli apartheid. Every ignorant comment about terrorism, self-defense, religion, and homeland I see on Facebook takes me back to being a confused 14 year old who couldn’t figure out why some people are so damned bloodthirsty and stupid. The main difference is that the white supremacists of South Africa and their supporters were not nearly so brutal and racist as the defenders of Israel.

Our Visit to the Covance Primate Quarantine Facility

"We got out of the car to stand closer to the fence and look at the cages, barren and so far away from the forests from which the monkeys were kidnapped and torn away from their families. We heard a monkey scream, and I felt the cry reach inside me and tear me apart in a way that still makes me feel numb in knowing that I can’t even begin to imagine the terror that the monkeys experience—and in knowing that the terror has just begun for them.”

Today, 20th of July, is the anniversary of the murder of Carlo Giuliani by the Italian state during the G8 protests in Genoa, 2001
He was shot at point blank range and then crushed by a land rover. Never forget him.

John Middleton, a Missouri prisoner killed by lethal injection on Wednesday.

Middleton was convicted of three murders despite doubts over his guilt and concerns he may have been mentally ill. Attorneys for Middleton said new evidence showed that one of the murders took place when he was actually 40 miles away, in a jail in Iowa.

Earlier this week, a federal judge stayed Middleton’s execution, saying he met the standard for mental incapacity “showing that he is incompetent to be executed.” But an appeals court overturned the stay.

My wife Kristen and I were lucky enough to go on a free week-long vegan Caribbean cruise on the MSC Divina - the VegNews Veggie Awards grand prize. We feel beyond fortunate to have won a free vacation, as we would not have been able to afford a vacation this year otherwise (along with other family and friends, we are sending my parents to Maui for their 30th Anniversary instead!).

Unfortunately we did not have a good time on the cruise. No, it wasn’t the surprisingly subpar food. No, it wasn’t that our stop in the Bahamas was cancelled due to inclement weather. We simply couldn’t really enjoy ourselves on a ship being run by 1,000+ workers who are mistreated on a daily basis. It’s hard to have fun aboard a floating sweatshop.

"Vegan Cruise" Is an Oxymoron 

Click above to read more of this detailed account of a holistic holiday cruise winner found out the hard way just how terrible cruise workers from different countries have it. They begin by getting offered a fairly lucrative job only to end up spending more money than they earn (which is around only 2 dollars an hour) and not being able to return home unless they want to be put even further into debt. 

"We simply couldn’t see past the disparity between veganism — an act of compassion celebrated on the cruise — and the lack of compassion the cruise had for the constantly tired-eyed workers."
