Internet giant UNILAD has collaborated with a vegan artist and activist to create an animal rights video to share with its 33 million followers.

The short film is the first in a planned series about animals and the environment.

UNILAD teamed up with Kate Louise Powell to create the piece – a 21-year-old Edinburgh-based illustrator and vegan rights activist.

The extended film by Unilad

‘Honor’

She posted news about the collaboration on Facebook, writing: “My collaboration with the facebook giant UNILAD, who will be releasing a series of short videos about animal rights and the environment over the next few weeks. 

“It’s an honor to be able to speak on such a massive platform and have the potential to reach a giant audience. 

“The demand for animal liberation will not be ignored – our voices are getting louder.”

The Facebook short is part of a longer piece the platform shared on YouTube called Meat the End (watch above), which also features footage of activist James Aspey.

Abusive

Speaking in the video, Powell says: “The way the animals are killed…is hidden from us for a reason…because it is horrific and it is abusive.”

Also featured in the video is Professor Andrew Knight – Professor of animal welfare and ethics at the University of Winchester and a European veterinary specialist in animal welfare science, ethics and law.

Representing the Animal Welfare Party [AWP] Knight contested PM Theresa May’s seat in this year’s snap General Election.

He adds: “We develop these mental justifications that allow us to justify what we do.

“It’s ok to subject them to [all kinds of suffering].”
