From Wikipedia:

Veganarchism or vegan anarchism, is the political philosophy of veganism (more specifically animal rights and earth liberation) and anarchism, creating a combined praxis that is designed to be a means for social revolution. This encompasses viewing the state and capitalism, as well as hierarchical structures in general, as unnecessary and harmful to animals, both humanand non-human, whilst practising a vegan lifestyle. It is either perceived as a combined theory, or that both philosophies are essentially the same. It is further described as an anti-speciesist perspective on green anarchism, or an anarchist perspective on animal liberation.

Veganarchists typically view oppressive dynamics within society to be interconnected—from statism, racism, and sexism to human supremacy—and redefine veganism as a radical philosophy that sees the state as harmful to animals. Ideologically, it is a human, animal, and Earth liberation movement that is fought as part of the same struggle. Those who believe in veganarchy can be either against reform for animals or for it, although do not limit goals to changes within the law.

The philosophy was first popularised by Brian A. Dominick in Animal Liberation and Social Revolution and later promoted by anarcho-punk band Virus using symbolism, Roots of Compassion, a zine named 'veganarchy', and animal rights activist Jonny Albewhite. The ideology is sometimes referred to as radical veganismtotal liberation, or total revolution; however, not all who believe in the terms perceive them to be veganarchy.
