Melanie Joy is a powerful speaker. This video is from a speech she gave at the Vegetarian Society of Hawaii earlier this year. There is one section, about 4 minutes long where she will show some of the things that happen to farmed animals -- she is very respectful and will warn you in advance, and you can choose not to watch it. I watched that clip during a former speech she gave and it was painful to see but also reinforced my attitude (although I don't need to reinforce my choice to be vegan, I just am.) Whether you skip that clip or not, I recommend this lecture -- one hour long -- she got a standing ovation.
