Symbol

ロゴ:アニマリズム党

The Animalism Party’s symbol is a heart with a line underneath it. The line represents the division between humans, an animal species, and other animal species. At present, humans control animals and are on top of them. Once an animalistic society is achieved, this line will be drawn, humans and animals will merge, and the heart will be completed.
The colors used are C0 M100 Y65 K10 (the colors of the Japanese flag with K set to 0). In the past, the Japanese flag was dyed with madder. If I were to make a flag for the Animalism Party, I would like to dye it with madder.

Animalism party platform

We will realize a society based on animalism.

All animals are companions born on earth and live together.
Human beings, a type of animal, have forgotten this and have caused great damage to other species and the earth.

Until now, humankind has built social and economic systems based on humanism: the supremacy of humanity.
Looking at the current situation, it is clear that there is no future beyond humanism.

Animalism is a concept that extends humanism to include animals.
In other words, animalism encompasses humanism.
Animalism recognizes animals as beings with equal value to humans, renounces discrimination, violence, exploitation, and other violations of their rights, liberates them, treats them as objects of ethics and rights, and guarantees their dignity and freedom.

We begin by including animals, which we know have nervous systems, senses, and mental activity, into society.

The realization of a new society and economy based on the philosophy of animalism will lead to the resolution of many social and environmental problems.
We believe that through animalism, we can achieve a true symbiotic society, true peace, and a truly sustainable, green, peaceful, and beautiful earth.

We serve animals, living organisms, nature, and the earth, including humans.
We will do our best to achieve this ideal.
