“Interview with Steve Best,” Asinus Novus

“Steve Best in Italy: From Philosophy to Action,” by the blog (and more), Asinus Novus. The writers provided a nice summary of my talks and main ideas.

A Key Meeting,” Arielvegangfashinblogspot.com; a refreshingly intelligent, fair, and incisive essay on my work, thank you Ariel.

“Now Enough,” Barbara Balsalmo

 

***************************************************************************

I wish to thank everyone in Italy for inviting me to speak again this year, and for being such gracious hosts, fantastic activists. and amazing people. There are dozens, perhaps over a hundred of people who made this tour possible and joyful. I cannot possibly name them all. I do however, wish to offer a very special thank you to:

Kostia Troinia and Barbara Balsamo for inviting me and being the principal organizers of my talks in Rome. You are the best!

Marcos Aragao for your excellent photos.

VeggieChannel.com for your tremendous effort in interviewing me, taping my lectures in Turin, Rome, and Latina, and for having the courage to post my talks on your channel.

The kind women at Asinus Novus for showing enough interest in my work to summarize my talks and interview me; it was a pleasure, thank you.

Per Animalia Veritas; thank you for your activism, support, and bold defense of militant direct action!

The ReWild Cruelty Free Club; you guys rock and make the best vegan food!

Paolo Trono and his club, Vegan Città di Latina (a former abattoir transformed into a space for music, lectures, and culture!) in which I gave my final speech in the Rome area before moving north to Brescia; thank you for your kindness, the great audience, and the great free food and beer!

Piercarlo Paderno for inviting and hosting me in Brescia. You are a great new friend and did amazing work to help liberate the Greenhill dogs.

The Occupy Greenhill movement (see here and here) for their bold act of liberation that will go down in history as one of the most important actions of this century. In their post-Greenhill reorganization, the group is now called Animal Amnesty, and will keep opening chained fences and locked doors!

This talk was given at Sapienza University of Rome, September 5, 2012.

This talk given at the Sala Underground, Barcelona, Spain, September 26, 2012. It was a blast to perform with animal liberation bands, Major Arcana and Blendeskil!

This is a two-part video, recorded at the Turin, Italy Animal Rights Film Festival, in July 2010. It was recently broadcast on Veggie Channel.Com. The first part is an improvised talk and second is a Q&A session. My thanks to my hosts in Turin and to the excellent Veggie Channel in Italy.

Part I: Talk

Part II: Question and Answer Session

This talk was given to a packed house in the great vegan restaurant, the “Rewild Cruelty-Free Club” in Rome, Italy, on September 4, 2012. The talk was organized by Per Animalia Veritas, an organization that promotes anti-speciesism, veganism, and militant direct action tactics as necessary conditions for creating revolutionary change worth fighting for. This is a video was shot and made available on the web by Veggie Channel.com.

Talk to the International Animal Rights Conference 2012, Luxembourg, September 16

Part I: Beginning Sections (apologies for often poor sound quality)

Part II: Conclusion

This is one of the film interviews I regretably turned down, given the director’s right-wing politics and the funding for this documentary from the Center for Consumer [read: Corporate] Freedom. As it turned out, Curt Johnson made an excellent film, enough so to piss off CCF and earn him a lawsuit. This is a damning statement on the pro-kill policies still dominating US animal “shelters” and — tragically, pathetically, and deplorably — the two largest “animal advocacy” groups in the world: the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). If you have never seen this film, prepare yourself for shock and disgust.

“You can’t separate peace from freedom, because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.”-Malcom X

Blendeskil is a cutting-edge hardcore band that promotes radical politics and animal liberation. As the video above illustrates, they have taken the message of militant animal liberation, captured it in song, and are bringing it to the masses. Dr. Steve Best & Blendeskil will tour in September.
