About 269Life France
By the use of direct action, civil disobedience, scenery perceived as "chocking" (learn more on our social media) ; fake blood and the screams of other animals, we aim to put the victims of the speciste oppressive system in the centre of the public debate. By the use of (inter)national media we aim to deconstruct the speciste ideology as a cultural and political phenomenon.
For example, our manifestation for the end of fishing during which four activists pierced their cheeks with hooks was covered by over 20 (inter)national news media such as Libération, Le Figaro, Le Parisien and France TV. Another pacifist action where many litres of fake blood was poured on the floor in a butchers market caused national outcry and multiple interviews.
In relationship to other similar associations, we consider ourselves an important and complementary national actor to raise the level, and put the victims in the light, of the public debate regarding the exploitation of other animals.
We are a decentralised organisation that works for the recognition of the fundamental rights of all sentient beings without any arbitrary discriminations. We demand the unconditional abolishment of any practice that denies the fundamental rights of sentient beings.
We do not seek to empty the cages by first enlarging them.
