This week, Evy speaks to full time activist and animal rights speaker, Joey Carbstrong, about his direct, no-nonsense style of activism. Joey talks about how his early life as part of a gang influenced his bold and confrontational approach to speaking up for the voiceless, and how he remains unperturbed by criticism when he focuses on his core mission of achieving animal liberation. Also on this episode... Joey recounts the time in his life as a gang member, and how a particularly depressing stint in prison prompted a total lifestyle overhaul, and eventually his vegan awakening. How Joey left his gang and found his calling in animal rights activism. How one-on-one street activism can have the greatest impact as an activist. ‘The people who say animals are killed humanely, they haven’t ever witnessed what happens inside a slaughterhouse. They’re talking merely off of their indoctrination and what they’re told.’ Joey talks about his experiences in slaughterhouses as being some of ‘the most horrific experiences’ of his life. His mindset for dealing with the verbal and online abuse that comes with being a confrontational activist. Joey explains how to avoid ever being ‘stumped’ by an anti-vegan argument in a debate. How to focus and conserve one’s energy for activism: ‘I don’t let anyone get inside my head to try to make me feel guilty for standing up for animals, no matter who it is.’ What to say to people who accuse vegans of caring more about animals than humans. Do hardcore vegan activists want people working in the animal agricultural industry to go out of business, or evolve with the plant based food system? Joey explains how he takes a more forceful approach and how Gary Yourofsky’s direct speeches about animal abuse was what he needed to hear to go vegan. ‘People need to be held accountable for their contribution to something that is horrific.’ Robbie and Evy talk about the c-word and how we can discuss the original source of the virus, as being the consumption of wild animals, without shaming and angering people.
