Dear Mark,


Today Animal Equality has launched an international campaign calling on the United Nations to demand an immediate global ban on all wet markets.

Please, sign our petition now and make sure the check box which says ‘Sign up for Animal Equality’s newsletter and receive updates and appeals via email’ is selected, so that you receive our updates on this campaign.




Animal Equality has investigated wet markets in China, India, and Vietnam. Our powerful investigation includes footage from a wet market in Wuhan, China, the city where many scientists speculate COVID-19 originated.

In wet markets, wild animals such as crocodiles, porcupines, deer, and bats are often sold alongside animals which are farmed for human consumption, including chickens and goats. It’s not uncommon to also find dogs and cats at these wet markets, which get their name in part from the floors that are soaked wet with blood.

At wet markets, live animals are slaughtered on the spot. There are no animal welfare or hygiene regulations in place. And, despite the documented dangers to public health and extreme cruelty to animals, wet markets remain legal.

Mark, please take a moment to watch our investigation to see what I’m talking about with your own eyes.

Wet markets are hell on earth for animals and they also pose a very real, imminent threat to the public health of the entire planet.

The time to act is now.

We are determined to make sure these blood-soaked markets across the world are shut down forever. The animals need your support to ensure the United Nations hears our message and takes action to protect animals and public health.

Chinese Markets Reopen — And They Still Sell Bats, Dogs And Cats.



Chinese Markets Reopen — And They Still Sell Bats, Dogs And Cats

Live animals are still for sale in Chinese food markets that reopened after the country recently declared victory over coronavirus.
Cages full of cats and dogs waiting for slaughter and the unsanitary preparation of animals is again reportedly a common sight in Chinese food markets, often called wet-markets, according to in-country correspondents with the Daily Mail.
China ordered that its wet-markets be shut down in January, after facts emerged suggesting that coronavirus was first transmitted to humans via bats and other live animals sold in the often filthy places of commerce, according to Business Insider. However, now that China says it’s beaten the virus, the markets seem to have resumed business as usual.
“The markets have gone back to operating in exactly the same way as they did before coronavirus,” said a Daily Mail correspondent who observed the markets re-opening Dongguan. “The only difference is that security guards try to stop anyone taking pictures which would never have happened before.”
Another correspondent in Guilin, a city in southwest China, photographed a sign advertising bats, snakes, spiders, lizards and scorpions for sale as remedies for common illnesses.

Images have also begun to circulate on social media of traditional Chinese foods considered odd by Western standards for sale in the newly reopened wet markets. CNBC host Jim Cramer tweeted out a video of live scorpions for sale.



U.K: a new concentration camp for chickens is planned

Plans have been submitted to Tendring District Council for an intensive chicken farm in Wix, Essex. If the proposal is approved, approximately 760,000 sensitive birds will be sent to slaughter every year.

The chickens will be forced to spend their short lives in barren, dirty sheds with up to 100,000 other birds. Bred to have large, heavy upper bodies, they’re likely to suffer from severe health problems, including deformed or arthritic legs.

The birds will be no more than 38 days old when they’re sent to slaughter. They’ll be packed into crates before being transported to an abattoir, where they’ll be gassed or electrocuted or their throats will be slit.

Chickens are intelligent and can be playful and sociable. Each individual has a unique personality – they’re not a collection of “nuggets”, “wings”, and “drumsticks”.

Speak Out for Baby Birds Now

Local residents are already extremely concerned by these inhumane plans – they’re worried about flood risk, pollution, noise, smells, health risks, and cruelty to chickens.

Will you join them in speaking out against this monstrous chicken prison?

Please sign our petition to Tendring District Council:

To: Jonathon Doe, Case Officer, Tendring District Council

Dear Mr Doe,

We are writing in relation to planning application 20/00194 / FUL, which seeks permission for the construction of two poultry sheds and associated infrastructure on land north west of Redhouse Farm on Oakley Road in Wix.

Together, these buildings would hold as many as 100,000 chickens at a time in intensive conditions.

We object to this proposal for the following reasons:

The council has issued a holding objection to granting planning permission, since there has been insufficient consideration of safety measures for managing flood risk.

Operations on the farm – as well as the chickens’ waste and the bodies of dead chickens – would likely produce strong odors, which could disturb local residents and have a negative impact on their quality of life.

The construction of the proposed facility would generate noise pollution, and once the farm were operational, so would the ventilation fans, the filling of feed bins, cleaning work, the loading and unloading of HGVs using a diesel forklift, and HGV movements. This could have a detrimental effect on the quality of life of local residents, especially those who live on Oakley Road and in the nearby village of Great Oakley.

Ammonia from the chickens’ waste would be emitted into the surrounding area, likely having a negative impact on air quality, human health, the environment, and wildlife, including hedgehogs, nesting birds, and bats.

Almost 700 HGV movements per year to and from the farm would likely intensify traffic on Oakley Road, which is the main thoroughfare for Great Oakley residents traveling to Colchester and Harwich.

The facility would likely diminish the character of the rural landscape and spoil natural vistas.

Finally, the farm would cause immense suffering to the chickens confined there. Chickens are intelligent, social animals who can feel pain and distress.

As many as 100,000 birds at a time would be crammed into each of the two proposed buildings, which would measure only 20 meters by 110 meters. They would be denied the chance to do anything that comes naturally to them, such as roaming free, roosting in trees, and interacting with their parents.

As a result of living in these stressful conditions, chickens often fight each other, so farmers commonly debeak chicks with an infra-red laser, which can cause them immense pain.

In nature, chickens live for up to 11 years, but on this farm, they would be sent to the abattoir and slaughtered when they are no more than 38 days old.

We respectfully urge you to take our objections, along with comments made by local residents, into account and reject this application.

Yours sincerely,

And I mean…Despite pandemics, pathogens, climatic catastrophes … the animal industry continues to practice because it is allowed to.

Although this industry systematically destroys the environment, animals and humans, the animal industry does not violate any law.

The legal system claims that it wants to protect us from dangers, viruses, bacteria, diseases, but in the end it protects these branches that destroy us: the animal industry.

Seventy percent of the former rainforests in the Amazon region are now pastures for farm animals.

Thirty percent of the earth’s land area, which used to be a habitat for wild animals, is now used for livestock farming.

Sixty to seventy percent of all fish caught worldwide are fed to farm animals.

The animal industry is the world’s largest water polluter.

The main sources of pollution are antibiotics, hormones, chemicals, animal excrement and a sludge that these factories produce in piles and make soil, groundwater and people sick.

The meat industry is a billion-dollar business controlled by only a handful of criminals.
If the animal industry has become so powerful that it is practically above the law, then it is naive to say that we live in a democracy.

We live in a “meat”cracy.


My best regards to all, Venus
