• Igualdad Animal ~ Animal Equality •
Igualdad Animal (Animal Equality) is a Spain-based, international organization advocating to prevent cruelty toward and protect farm animals and animals in captivity in Spain, Venezuela and Mexico, where it operates under the name Igualdad Animal, and in the UK, India, Germany and Italy, where it operates under the Animal Equality name.
Igualdad Animal seeks to promote long-term social change in the compassionate and respectful treatment of domesticated farm animals and animals in captivity, focuses its efforts on pro-active education, research, corporate vegan outreach and legal advocacy to prevent cruelty and protect animals.
As part of its mission, Igualdad Animal rescues animals from inhumane treatment, investigates the hidden realities and suffering that animals are forced to endure, raises public awareness and creates social debate through direct action and media outreach, and participates in the organization of peaceful demonstrations promoting veganism and animal rights.
As part of its efforts to raise awareness about cruelty to animals, in 2016 Igualdad Animal launched its iAnimal project, teaming with technology company Condition One to develop a 3D headset that provides viewers with a 360-degree immersive experience of conditions and suffering that animals endure.
At the 2016 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, Igualdad Animal premiered Factory Farm, a 12-minute video inside a factory farm and slaughterhouse, which when viewed through the iAnimal headset provides the viewer with graphic evidence and a highly magnified empathy for the level of animal suffering that occurs in the food industry.
