In todays episode we speak to prominent New Zealand animal rights advocate and author, M C Ronen. Maya as she is otherwise known shares with us her journey and engaging insights into being a creative activist. We delve into effective activism through writing and how she crafted her novels “The Shed” and “Liberation” which portrays our everyday animal agriculture systems in a whole new perspective.
“When I stand outside of the slaughterhouse and truck after truck comes in with with the victims who are going to be killed inside.
And sometimes we just lock eyes with one of the victims, and in that brief moment the whole world of that victim is palpable to us.
We can feel it.
We can feel the confusion.
We can feel the fear.
We can smell it. It’s reeking emanating from feces and urine and the moment is so strong.
And then our job is to show the world.” -M C Ronen

‘The Shed is about Sunny, a girl living in a community on a farm in a seemingly apocalyptic world. The farm is electrically fenced and has strict rules that are firmly observed, and especially the rule that girls like Sunny must not enter The Shed, an impending building inside the farm. Only grown women are allowed in, but even then, some who go in never come back. One day strange things start happening. Flying objects appear in the sky and the farm is raided in the middle of the night. One of Sunny’s friends is among those taken. A few years later, when Sunny’s friends are summoned to The Shed, Sunny‘s mother orders her to take her best friend and escape from the farm. But Sunny’s path of escape still leads her right inside The Shed. What will she find there? Will she be able to escape? Why was the farm raided and what world awaits beyond it?’
