Around half a billion poultry, pigs and cattle are transported on European highways every year. Just so that the animal can be slaughtered cheaply, it is transported to a low-wage country and then back as meat back to the meat counter.
EU Commission rejects the 8 hour transport limit.
The EU promotes cruel practices in the meat industry with subsidies.
A tragic consequence of globalization and global trade is the increase in animal transport and the expansion of transport distances. The specialization in the agricultural sector, the liberalization of markets, the international orientation of companies and the new information and communication technologies make it possible today to market animals internationally. Animals have long been piece goods in the consciousness of producers and suppliers.
The German government is running a kind of “greenwashing” to support the meat industry, as it is making every possible effort to grow. Alone the transport to the slaughterhouse are cruel, but although there is so much evidence that the guidelines are very often not respected in animal transports, the EU has rejected in mid-March a committee of inquiry into live animal transports! A black day for the animals, a cessation of tormenting animal transport conditions is therefore not in sight.
So it is known. The accidents on the transports continue to increase.
On March 08, 2018, cruel images of dozens of dead calves appeared. Victim of a collision between two trucks. They were Irish calves. On the way to Groningen. Because Ireland and the Netherlands are member states of the European Union, there are free shipments of goods or animals. At the moment of their early death, these calves had already made a long journey. First through Ireland, then crossings by ferry and another trip of about three hundred kilometers. Why are a few hundred calves carting across Europe? Now these calves are dead. Again and again, accidents occur when one considers the cruel reality: Annually, around 170 million livestock transports take place in Europe alone.
But the EU Commission rejects the 8 hour transport limit.
Although animal welfare violations in animal transport have increased, the EU is fully supporting the meat and milk mafia. They are cruel pictures and you often hear them screaming: the animals in trucks.
Every day you see them driving, the trucks with their cargo: live animals!
September 2018, Germany: 109 piglets have died. According to the ministry, the carrier must be overloaded. Altogether 180 piglets were loaded. The pigs did not die due to illness. How exactly they came to death and who is responsible, is not known and was not explained to us until today. According to previous findings, the driver of a delivery service has transported 180 piglets, 109 were already dead. The operator had discovered the dead animals fortuitously and then notified the authorities, it said.
And here are (some) the damages inflicted directly by the oligarchs of the EU – Germany on animal welfare during the five years of their rule:
-Ministers of Agriculture, who run their own horror slaughterhouses
-Criminalization of covert work in slaughterhouses
-Ex-Minister of Agriculture Christian Schmidt (CSU) had given the controversial pesticide glyphosate single-handedly its vote
-Extension of piglet castration without anesthesia
-Mass murder of wild boars (99,000 in 2018)
-Killing millions of chickens and other poultry as bird flu protection.
-Chicks should be further shredded
-No prohibition of wild animals in the circus, although other countries, even from the Third World, have done so long ago
-No ban on transporting animals over 8 hours a day.
And many, many more…
Animal abusers at all levels, that’s the EU.
EU is animal hostile.
It supports slavery, exploitation and brutal trade with animals.
It deserves no respect, no voice.
It eserves only contempt.
With the taxpayers’ money, it pursues a dirty, disgusting policy in favor of the meat and milk mafia, the transport mafia, the hunters, the laboratory crime.
The EU no longer has a right to exist.
I do not go vote and would recommend it to anyone.
