About the Norwegian animal rights organisation The Animal Federation
The Animal Federation, Dyrenes Forbund, was founded in 2019 as a national level grassroots organization.
The philosophy of the Animal Federation is very simple. We think that animals should be free from oppression. While you are reading these words, an enormous number of animals are being killed in slaughterhouses, on fur farms and in the name of science. Our vision is a world in which all animals are respected and have the right to live their own lives. We believe in, and are fighting for, total animal liberation.
Animals are exploited in many ways – for food, clothing, entertainment and experimentation. We work with investigations to show the public the reality animals experience in different industries.
There are many different ways to be active in the Animal Federation. Not everyone participates in demonstrations. Some prefer to organize informational booths in town, hold fundraisers, give lectures, put together workshops or prepare food for our meetings instead. The point is that everyone can find ways to participate in our organisation that suit them. And don’t believe that your help doesn’t make a difference: it certainly does. The animals need every one of us to take up the fight for them. Together we make a difference!
