Direct Action Everywhere (DxE)
27th May 2021
This sketch outlines clearly how to make changes inside the workplace, by politely speaking up for individual beliefs and comfort levels. As food with animal products in is passed around by leaders of a fictitious company meeting, one employee speaks her concern of sitting next to someone who is eating rabbit, when they have a companion rabbit at home. Inspired by that employee, another person in the meeting voices their discomfort of being in a room where chicken is being served as food, because of her affinity with chickens. The sketch end with the company deciding to serve only plant based food to ensure every member of the company is respected. The straight forward tone and rhythm serves a purpose to spell out how to bring up, and respond, to these issues at work - and how the issues can be solved respectfully by colleagues.
