When animal rights become a business…


There is a nice anecdod that illustrates the absurdity in our live very well:

A gentleman goes to the psychiatrist: “Doctor,” he says, “my brother thinks he is a chicken.”
“And why don`t you bring him to the clinic?” asks the doctor
“I would like to do that, but I need the eggs”!

It’s the same in life, we see the absurd, the paralogue, but we need the eggs.
Therefore, it is not very easy to admit that the EU has failed at every level if one is well paid by the EU.
Everyone needs the eggs!

In the case of the EU Commission the absurdity is only a harmless word, we should actually speak of convinced animal haters.

Who else would extend the castration of the piglets without anesthesia?
Who else would prolong the chick shredding?
Who else would bury the 8-hour campaign in the sand, despite the 1.2 million signatures?
Who else would let criminals animal tansporteure unpunished if they drive animals with 40 degrees to death?
Who else would have slaughterhouse operators continue to work if they sent pregnant, sick and injured animals for transport?

The questions go to Eurogroup for Animals, because according to their statutes they are the skilful actors to transform animal suffering to animal welfare, as a trusted bridge between the European Commission and animal suffering!

Nobody would deny that the driving force of any Eurogroup for Animals member is the defense of animal rights, at least in the first phase. It is more difficult for anyone to understand, how is it possible to work for them, who the animals demonstrably hate and have not done anything else until now, rather than closing lucrative deals with those who live on animals.

In that sense, a job for Animal Rights in Brussels is like any other job, except that it is seductively rewarded.
Over time, and having experienced all facets of anger and disgust inside ourselves for the validity of the EU Commissioners, we believe that we should not expect any improvement from either groupings or individual officials.

The groupings, because they do not even believe themselves that they have the power to persuade and convince the inept and unwilling commissars to take action.
But they need the eggs, they stick to it.
The commissioners because they have no interest in defending neither animal rights nor human rights (the case of Catalonia, a sad proof), and because the EU, as the largest agricultural lobby, has betrayed the animals.

For a long time, we have only known EU Commission and Eurogroup for animals as egg sellers from happy chickens.

My best regards to all, Venus

USA: Petition – Justice For Coyote Pups Killed And Strung Up On Display.


Justice For Coyote Pups Killed And Strung Up On Display

PETITION TARGET: Vermont Governor Phil Scott

Two young coyote pups were dangled by their feet from a utility pole in front of a home in Vermont’s rural Essex County. The grisly sight took place on a main road and horrified people who passed by. These innocent victims were hunted, killed, and hanged in a smug showcase of vanity.

Brenna Galdenzi of the group Protect our Wildlife was shocked when she saw these poor creatures strung up for a gruesome display. Outraged, she told New England Cable News, “I don’t really think there’s any other way to look at those photos than to be completely appalled.”

Because these pups were hanged on private property, no current laws were violated. Coyotes can be hunted all year in Vermont. In fact, it’s open season on coyotes year-round in most of the US. Even more sickening, most states hold annual coyote-killing contests that are nothing short of “gruesome celebrations of slaughter,” as reported by The Washington Post.

Vermont has recently become the 2nd state to ban these horrific contests, but we need more. Animal advocates are calling for change. However, the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Board recently denied a petition to restrict coyote hunting. We must speak out to save coyotes and other animals from such brutal treatment.

Sign this petition to urge Governor Scott to call for legislation that would protect coyotes and end barbaric practices such as stringing them up like criminals on display.



England: London University bans hamburgers ‘to tackle climate change’.



London University bans hamburgers ‘to tackle climate change’

No burger

A London university is banning the sale of burgers to try to fight global warming.

Goldsmiths, University of London, is removing all beef products from sale – and charging a 10p levy on bottled water and single-use plastic cups.

It plans to install more solar panels across its New Cross campus, in south-east London, and switch to a 100% clean energy supplier as soon as possible.

It will spend money on its allotment and identify other areas where planting could help to absorb carbon dioxide.

Carbon footprint

The university emits about 3.7 million kg of carbon each year but is hoping to become carbon neutral by 2025.

And it will try to increase the number of students studying climate change.

Scientists say beef is more damaging to the environment as cows produce more methane and require more land and water than other livestock.

The college’s new head, Prof Frances Corner, said: “The growing global call for organisations to take seriously their responsibilities for halting climate change is impossible to ignore.

“Though I have only just arrived at Goldsmiths, it is immediately obvious that our staff and students care passionately about the future of our environment and that they are determined to help deliver the step change we need to cut our carbon footprint drastically and as quickly as possible.

“Declaring a climate emergency cannot be empty words.

“I truly believe we face a defining moment in global history and Goldsmiths now stands shoulder to shoulder with other organisations willing to call the alarm and take urgent action to cut carbon use.”

Follow suit

Goldsmiths Students’ Union president Joe Leam said: “Our house is on fire,” invoking the words of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg.

“I believe Frances Corner and the university management are realising this and making these changes to put their part of the house fire out.

“The SU will be a part of this process every step of the way to make sure this stays true, seeking to speed the process up wherever possible, and will keep the college community updated throughout.”

Rosie Rogers, of Greenpeace UK, said: “It’s encouraging to see an institution like Goldsmiths not simply declaring a climate emergency but acting on it.

“From energy use, to food sales and plastic pollution – all universities and organisations with campus sites can make changes across their facilities that are better for our planet.

“We call on others to urgently follow suit and to include cutting all ties from fossil fuel funding in their climate-emergency response.”
