Hello 👋,
I used to be vegan, but I’m now veggie again. I’d like to go back to veganism. However, I need some more persuasion and motivation...

* Has to be ethics and animal rights-based, not about vegan food, the environment or health.
* Has to be good for more hardcore animal rights people, not just beginners to veganism.
* Preferably not as graphic as “Earthlings”.
Thanks 😊

PETA has a good list of documentaries. This is just one of their lists
