Hayvan Hakları İzleme Komitesi (Animal Rights Watch Committee) is an initiative from Istanbul, Turkey that defines all animals as individuals having rights.
HAKİM owns the principle of “total liberation”.The association argues that speciesism is a form of discrimination like sexism or racism that should be fought against. The association, as a result of evidence-based observation, reasons that speciesism is less common among children. Therefore model workshops are developed for children about animal rights and anti-speciesism.
HAKİM also works on legal issues, campaigns and media discourse, organizes demonstrations and cooperates with other CSOs and activists.
