Despite the effort to combat exhibitionist violence, for more than twenty years now, the U.S.’s carnist political parties have carried on an annual celebration of the suffering and death of millions of innocent birds, known as the Presidential “turkey pardoning.”
Carnist candidates swept elections in all 50 states on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. While the Democrat-Republicans retain their exclusive hegemony in both houses of the U.S. Congress as well as in all 50 state legislatures, more than one billion animals are tortured, mutilated, raped, molested, kidnapped, and killed each year in the U.S. These violent and perverse acts remain legal as a direct result of Democrat-Republican political supremacy at the state and federal level. However, ramp-up for the 2020 U.S. Senate, House, and Presidential races begins immediately. There is no time for delay. Environmentalists, animal rights activists, vegans, and abolitionists who wish to halt and reverse this process are invited to run for office.
Each year, more than a billion animals are mutilated, tortured, kidnapped, raped, slashed, electrocuted, strangled, burned, skinned, and/or killed in U.S. vivisection laboratories, slaughterhouses, and other mass-killing facilities. On Election Day, November 6th, 2018, all of that could change.
A museum and convention hall commemorating the Underground Railroad has opened in Niagara Falls, New York, to honor the courage, sacrifice, and determination of the many people who helped escapees in their journey to freedom prior to abolition of human slavery in the United States.
The clandestine network that helped people escape from bondage in the U.S. represents an early American example of direct action which can be viewed, in that regard, as an antecedent to the Animal Liberation Front of today.
The year 2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which secured women in the U.S. the right to vote. On this occasion, it is important to remember that the Humane Party has addressed the gap between the proposed Equal Rights Amendment in 1923 and current social issues, by drafting a new Constitutional amendment that would be fully inclusive of gender-, sexuality-, and marriage-related rights.
After an initial subset of proposed seats for Class A of the Humane National Committee were published for comment a few weeks ago, a first complete set of seats for Class A is now being published today for public comment.
At this special moment in history, we are witnessing a revolution in philosophy and political science: the zoocracy system of government extends the political franchise beyond the species barrier to include all forms of sentient life. The Humane Party has been developing the zoocratic system and the HP’s future governing body, the Humane National Committee (HNC).
Around the world, scientists continue to independently confirm the Humane Party’s findings, and the big takeaway is this: converting to an all-vegan approach to food production would yield a massive expansion in the effective food supply.
The overall parameters for the Humane National Committee have been finalized and ratified by the Humane Party. Class A takes the geography-based approach like that used in the U.S. political system and by other U.S. political parties. Proposed constituency definitions for some seats of Class A are today published for public comment.
As the global animal-protection movement grows, some slavery-related terms are becoming more popular. This article shows how three key terms relate to each other.
The world’s slave population now exceeds its free population among mammals and birds, according to a new report published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The Humane Party has published an initial set of parameters for the overall design of the Humane National Committee governing body. These parameters will now be available for comments, criticisms, and editorial suggestions from the public until completion of a final overall design has been achieved.
Earth Day 2018 (Sunday, April 22) will mark the 9th anniversary of the launch of the Humane Party. As per tradition, the HP will also release its bi-annual party platform on Earth Day. The 2018-19 platform includes two new sections and several significant updates.

Clifton Roberts, candidate for U.S. Senate representing the state of California, will be interviewed on April 19, 2018.
Activists in the humane movement often refer to themselves as providing a voice to animals whose needs are not heard. Similarly, for photographer and filmmaker Randy Bacon people who are homeless need to be heard and they also need to be seen. In The Road I Call Home, an exhibition of portraits, stories, and film of the homeless community in his hometown of Springfield, Missouri, Bacon provides an outlet for the people featured to be seen and to be heard in their own voices.
