Earth Day, Humane Party 10-year Anniversary and Inaugural Presidential Primary

Today is Earth Day, and today is the 10th anniversary of the Humane Party, which was founded on the fundamental ideas of abolition of exploitation. The party’s hundreds of volunteers and thousands of followers see the necessity of such a party when the current political parties always seem to offer more of the same. The Humane Party’s platform is different. It is far-reaching and encompasses ideals beyond safeguarding the environment and ending the suffering of species.

Humane Party Jobs Report: Assessing the Exploitation of Animals in the United States’ Agriculture, Food, and Related Industries Sectors

In 2017 the United States raised over 9.63 billion land-based animals. This number includes cows, veal (baby cows), cows for their milk, chickens, chickens for their eggs, turkeys, goats and sheep (both for their meat and their wool). There are also aquatic species (both wild and cultivated) as well as bees for honey. This massive industrial raising of animals for food and fiber requires a complex system of workers. Not all jobs are equal in their exploitation of the specific animal species. In order to fully assess which jobs are most exploitative, we have created a classification system.

Reviving the Abolition Party’s Logo

Prior to launching on Earth Day (April 22), 2009, the Humane Party had three alternative names: the “Vegan Party,” the “Abolition Party,” and the “Humane Party.” While the name was under debate, a logo was designed for the Abolition Party. Activists are welcome to reactivate this dormant logo, where appropriate.

How Would You Like to Be the Humane Party’s Candidate for President of the United States?

To see liberation and equality for all. How about bringing these thoughts to fruition?

Comparison of Farming in Production of Food per Acre: Measuring vegan-organic agriculture vs. animal-based agriculture

The Humane Party’s Economic Transition Team (ETT) has completed its report comparing vegan-organic agriculture and animal-based agriculture on an acre per acre basis. Using past Humane Party reports as well as USDA, FAO and animal agriculture industry data, we have compiled a series of tables analyzing the needs of the over 9.624 billion land animals that were raised in the United States in 2017 and have reached significant conclusions.

Humane National Committee: Class A Finalized

Upon expiration of the public-comment period and a final review, the Humane Party Board of Directors has ratified the full design of Class A for the Humane National Committee (HNC) as published on October 19, 2018. Class A of the HNC represents a significant advance over the traditional model of geography-based representation.

Election results 2018: Carnist parties sweep all 50 states—again

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.

Underground Railroad Heritage Center Opens in Niagara Falls, New York

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.
