Online Assembly: What Industrialization Means for Dairy Cows in China (and for us)

Saturday, January 09, 2021
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Event Type:
Panel Discussion
Direct Action Everywhere
Location Details:
Online Zoom

Historically, China was a soybean nation and not a dairy nation. Today, China has become the world’s largest dairy importer and third largest dairy producer, and dairy has surpassed soybeans in both consumption volume and sales revenue. Join us on Saturday, January 9th as we join Xiaoqian Hu, legal anthropologist and law professor to investigate the legal and socioeconomic factors that drove this transformation, what it’s meant for farmed animals in China, and what opportunities and challenges advocates face in seeking to reduce animal abuse in China. As the root of societal exploitation of farmed animals lies in a global economic system built upon “free market” and “private property,” we’ll conclude the talk by reevaluating the “property” status of animals and the notion of “property” more broadly.
