Popis I argue in this text that a political ecology framework benefits from incorporating the perspective of animal liberation. The main objective is to analyze and compare the approaches of members of the anti-authoritarian, anarchist movement on the basis of the relationship towards the rights and liberation of nonhuman animals. The first part reveals a historical perspective using writings of anarchist geographers such as Pyotr Kropotkin and Elisée Reclus. I show the historical relevance of linking ideas of rights and liberation of nonhuman animals with anti-authoritarian thinking. The second part looks at the approaches in the current anti-authoritarian movement. I divided this movement into two camps. The first camp holds the vegan position, the other camp does not consider veganism to be important. I show that the second camp from an anarchist movement and the first camp of radical animal liberators have different opinions in relation to this topic and that their attitudes are diverse (historically and currently). Both groups of radicals combine the emphasis on direct action as an effort to directly confront hierarchical structures that they consider to be exploitative - whether to humans, nonhuman animals, or to nature. They also strive for holistic thinking, but each group defines such integrality with other arguments and everyone has a different idea of what constitutes anti-authoritarian thinking. Finally, I examine how this discussion contributes to political ecological knowledge, and specifically to the development of an anarchist political ecology.
