Dinesh Wadiwel introduces the speakers Professor Will Kymlicka, Glenys Oogjes and Professor Duncan Ivison (3.00). Professor Will Kymlicka begins his talk by stating he believes the animal rights movement has failed (7.00) and goes on to say that the animal rights movement is an orphan of the left (13.12). He asserts that it is theoretically unjustified for the left to leave animals out of their understanding of justice (20.49) and discusses the concept of a flow of pleasures from the exploitation of animals (26.30). He argues that sanctifying species boundaries to fight dehumanisation is at the expense of justice for animals (32.31) and points out inequalities in how animal-related practices are perceived, when carried out by minorities (46.29). Professor Kymlicka calls for new ways of thinking about the place of animals in society (54.01). Glenys Oogjes, the executive director of Animals Australia takes the stage (56.58) to respond to Kymlicka and shows an advertising campaign from Animals Australia for chicken welfare (1.04.15). Professor Duncan Ivison, Dean of Arts and Social Sciences takes the stage to respond to Kymlicka and speak about his personal relationship with animals (1.08.05)
