Seeing Cruelty, Demanding Abolition
de Sue Coe
Sobre o livro
The issue of zoos is not about treatment, but use; not about reform, but abolition. Zoos often pay lip-service to “education,” “enrichment,” and “conservation,” but the cruelty is systemic and follows from the idea of animals as commodities. As long as they are property, animals will continue to be treated as things, with no rights, who can be caged, bred, abused, or killed for a zoo’s profit and the public’s entertainment.
InZooicide,Sue Coe applies her bold and breathtaking artistic style to confront the institution of zoos, exposing them as a form of capitalist cruelty that is enmeshed with the violence of war, colonialism, and ecological destruction.
