"I don’t miss anything being vegan.
It’s not mine to miss.
I didn’t give up anything.
It wasn’t mine to give up.
I just stopped, and then, I gained.
Gained some self respect that I was no longer participating in, enabling and funding exploitation, use and murder of wonderful beings.
Because you truly can’t say you are against cruelty and murder while funding it. You can’t say you are an animal lover. Of ALL animals.
Not with a straight face and in truth you can’t.
I was a thief. A thief who stole precious things from the most vulnerable. I was party to murder.
I was a terrible person. I’m so very sorry from the bottom of my heart. I can’t undo all the pain and bad things I did. But I can try to atone by refusing to continue for one second longer. To live my life honestly. When you know better, you do better, otherwise things just stay the same. Please, take a minute today to truly look at yourself and ask why you would continue living like this when we can live without it. I will help you if you need it. Please. I beg you. Just stop. The ability to do so is in us all. It’s never too late."
Ukraine between powers: Statement of Ukrainian anti-fascist group →
“We have to acknowledge the very unpleasant fact: Ukraine is under a threat of imposing the worst type of dictatorship of the Third World countries: an alliance between the supporters of neoliberal economic policy and the fascist political practice. With the help of such system of rule – the new government pushes unpopular reforms that would lead to further impoverishment of the people. And coercive support to such kind of reforms is provided by far-right paramilitary units that should suppress any social protest.
The union “Borotba” calls all citizens of Ukraine opposing to such a development trend - to take part in the activity of the Centre of Antifascist Resistance. Anti-fascism now is not about support of the bankrupt and deposed regime of Janukovich. It is about self-organizing and uniting all those citizens who don’t want to see our country slipping into the abyss of fascist dictatorship.
Instead of a misanthropic ideology of the far-righters, we put forward a set of top-priority demands that should lay a basis for social movement striving to real changes in the country”

america condemns russia
#fuck the e.u.
jeez russia, if you want to affect the political situation in ukraine you can’t just invade… you have to systematically fund and arm (as well as virally promote) far right organisations from afar, until they’re in a powerful enough position to capitalise on civil unrest in the country, hopefully seizing control in the resulting confusion/aftermath and entering into a more beneficial relationship for you once the population believes it has ceased to be a pawn in the hands of a superpower
that’s how real players play
