Outlook on food sovereinigty / agricultural turnaround

We would just like to take this occasion to give you a small incentive by saying that food production is possible without the direct and indirect exploitation of non-human animals or any other form of coexistence between us. The following examples illustrate this. For the time being, the topics are only touched upon here; please follow the links for further information.

Organic vegan agriculture

In as early as 1921, the German philosopher, pacifist and animal rights activist Magnus Schwantje wrote: “Even the question of whether agriculture can do without the manure coming from slaughtered animals, has been proven to be true by experts on account of longstanding attempts.“

Now, almost 100 years later and with far more technical expertise and resources, there are already some pioneers dedicated to organic vegan agriculture:


Solidarity-based agriculture (SoLaWi) – sharing the harvest

Farmers are always affected by the immense competition of a diffuse “market”. Accordingly, the major discounters and wholesalers always have the power to extort, for example, if the cucumbers are not straight enough – and thus stir up constant uncertainty among farmers.

Solidarity-based agriculture (SoLaWi) stands in the way of this: here, several private households bear the costs of an agricultural enterprise, for which they receive their harvest yield in return. Due to the personal relationship to each other, both the producers and consumers reap the many benefits from non-industrial, market-independent agriculture.

Animal sanctuaries – how a just society shared by humans and animals could look

It may look like a painting by Hartmut Kiewert, but it is already a reality in some places: animals live in relative freedom and can enjoy their lives. Some of them already have endured terrible experiences and only now have the chance to live out their lives in a safe and secure environment.
