Welcome to Rörelse för djurrätt in English!


Hello and welcome to Rörelse för djurrätt – for the first time in English!
My name is Christoffer and I’m the main blogger on Rörelse för djurrätt. Today I’m going to tell you a little bit about this blog.

Rörelse för djurrätt has been alive since January 2010. This is a blog about and for animal rights and issues thereabout. A simple translation of the name Rörelse för djurrätt is Movement for Animal Rights.

The posts are usually in Swedish but this time and hereafter more often in English.

The last years I’ve had a bit of a focus on animal rights documentaries for example Unity, Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home, The Witness, Earthlings, The Ghosts In Our Machine and so on. I have also written about other things and other movies – such as the series about the Planet of the Apes.
 
When it comes to fictional movies (like Planet of the Apes) one can interpret them by watching them with an inner animal rights lens, shifting the perspective from a human centered view to a view where the animals are central and starting to identify with “The Others” – in this case the animals of other species.

Rörelse för djurrätt's movie guide

If you’re interested in movies then you can find lots of interesting animal rights documentaries in Rörelse för djurrätt’s movie guide. The info about them is mostly in Swedish but the trailers are most often in English. Have a look! :) All the posts about movies are found under “Om filmer” in the menu. Hopefully you can find one or two movies new to you there.
