Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Brazilian Abolitionist Movement for Animal liberation is social movement against the exploitation of nonhuman animals, this theoretical and practical approach differ from animal welfare which seeks to regulate this exploitation to make it more humane. According to Heron Santana, president of the Animal Abolitionist Institute it is wrong of those who oppose animal abolitionism to imagine that this movement is against humanity. In fact, it refers to the extension of the moral sphere to include animals rather than threatening man exalting him. If we understand cruelty as the act of doing something bad, tormenting or damaging others through insensitive, inhumane, painful acts, all and any cruel practice to animals therefore offends rather than confirms the principle of human dignity. The social inefficacy of the principles and rules of article 225 of the Federal Constitution of Brazil occur because of the social obstacles that Lassalle called real factors of power, such as the animal's exploration industry and the psychological blocks putted by the speciesism's ideology.
