Peter Singer, a renowned philosopher and influential advocate for animals, visited Madrid to present the Spanish edition of his book, “Ethics in Action” with Animal Equality’s President and Co-founder, Sharon Núñez.

Peter Singer’s visit to Madrid was a highly anticipated event, which was held at the Casa Encendida. Animal advocates, academics, and members of the public attended the presentation to listen to Singer’s influential words about the modern animal rights movement. 

The event was held after Singer received the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award, recognizing individuals who have made significant contributions to scientific research or cultural creation. Singer’s insights into the animal protection movement and his support for Animal Equality’s mission highlighted the critical importance of continued activism to promote a better future for animals. 

We need new generations of activists who will fight for animals, who will build on the progress that has been made, who will get jobs, and who will continue to work on this progress.

During the interview Singer spoke about Henry Spira, the activist who revolutionized the modern movement in defense of animals, and about whom the book “Ethics in Action” discusses.

Accompanied by Sharon Núñez and Marcos de Miguel, Director of Plaza y Valdés Publishing House, Peter Singer delved into Spira’s extraordinary path as an unwavering advocate for animals. From his triumphs against the cruelty of animal testing to the relentless battle against factory farming, Spira’s legacy lives on through Singer’s book “Ethics in Action,” sharing his invaluable wisdom to guide the footsteps of future generations.

If Henry Spira were alive he would be doing the work of Animal Equality.
