Corona: a supporter of animal rights



At the Urubo Golf Country Club in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, world’s friendliest rodents capybaras have been spotted more frequently in recent days as the club has not been frequented often due to the coronavirus outbreak, as footage filmed on Saturday shows.


Dozens of rodents could be seen moving in herds and swimming in the lagoon of the exclusive resort now deserted.
As a local worker explained, up to 40 capybaras took over the grounds of the golf club since the quarantine started. The mammals, which are usually seen in smaller numbers in the area, are known as the largest rodent in the world and are a native species of Bolivia.
The country, whose government declared a quarantine on March 21, recorded 139 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 10 deaths as of Saturday.


And I mean..There is no hope that the real epidemic of the planet, the human species, will understand after coronexit, what it means to live without freedom in all your life.
To have no rights because the ruling race determined it so.

There is no hope that this breed will finally limit its privileges – the so-called human rights – and live peacefully with the “other” animal species, without exploitation, slavery, violence.

Therefore we wish our animal-friendly visitor a longer stay among us.
It is a unique opportunity for our fellow creatures to finally get their rights.

Regards and a good night from Venus

Spain: Corona kills the bullfighting mafia

This week the mayor of Mas de Barberams, Josep Maria Lleixà, has confirmed what was already an open secret: the town’s biggest festivities, scheduled for this April, are canceled.

The same has happened with Aldover, a municipality that starts the bullfighting season in Catalonia every year, and with Alcanar, which had planned to organize an entire week with more than 30 bullfights, in May.

Some of the events planned for major festivals will change their dates and will be held in another month. But bullfights cannot be held because they must be held during the traditionally stipulated period, as required by law.

The total number of bullfights in Catalonia canceled and unavoidable are now in their forties, but various municipalities throughout Spain are already suspending all sports, cultural activities and festivities scheduled for June, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

If they follow the same steps, the festivities canceled in Catalonia would reach 70. Municipalities and cultural sectors are beginning to foresee that in reality there will be no concerts, sporting events, or crowds allowed until, at least, after the summer, which is why there will probably be no bullfighting season in Catalonia or the rest of Spain.

And I mean…A death blow for the bullfighting mafia.
We are happy, very happy!

Usually it is the bull killer who gives the death blow to the massacred, bleeding bull when he lies powerless on the floor and surrenders.

An animal-friendly virus called Corona is now determining the new legal system.
And that’s good! The animal world breathes free air.

We are happy but we are also aware that this, their brief liberation from human tyranny will not last long.

My best regards to all, Venus

England (London): Farms Not Factories – Big Pig Business !


Factory farms, like wet markets, provide the ideal conditions for diseases such as the Covid-19 coronavirus to mutate, multiply and spread. A number of different coronaviruses have decimated pig populations in recent years, and it has been shown that some of these viruses could have (or have already) made the jump to humans (see below). This is deeply concerning, particularly amidst this global pandemic we are currently facing.




In March, the campaign group Pause the System took to the streets in front of Downing Street urging the UK government to ban factory farming amongst a set of measures to prevent any future pandemic outbreaks. Since then, many newspapers, journalists and writers have been speaking out about the links between public health, epidemics, pandemics and factory farming. We have a responsibility to put a halt to all the broken systems that contribute to viral pathogens, to reduce the possibility of this happening again. We need to ban factory farming. However, last month we were met with the devastating news that, in the UK, pig and chicken factory farming is actually continuing to rise.




Please read and share widely our blog article that discusses the link between factory farming and viruses. We can all help bring factory farming to an end by only buying high welfare pork from small scale high welfare farms. Look for high welfare labels like RSPCA Assured, Free Range or best of all, Organic – Or go direct to your farmer via farmers markets, box schemes and online.

Sea Shepherd: The poacher’s phantom is falling apart


We remember the KUNLUN: The poacher ship expires in Dakar.
Monday, December 23, 2019: Nine months after the THUNDER sank in the Gulf of Guinea, the KUNLUN in Senegal was arrested when its crew tried to unload illegally caught Antarctic cod. The decaying ship is a monument to the worldwide efforts to smash the “Bandit 6” poaching fleet.

Commentary by Captain Peter Hammarstedt.

I felt the greasy layer of rust and dirt crunch under my feet as I stepped onto the deck of the ASIAN WARRIOR, known to me by its former name KUNLUN, in the port of Dakar in West Africa.

In 2014 the KUNLUN was part of the “Bandit 6”. Together with the now infamous trawl ship THUNDER, these six poacher ships looted the Arctic Ocean to Antarctica.

Nine months after the THUNDER sank in the Gulf of Guinea, the KUNLUN in Senegal was arrested when its crew tried to unload illegally caught Antarctic cod. The decaying ship is a monument to the worldwide efforts to smash the “Bandit 6” poaching fleet.

While my crew and I were chasing the THUNDER from Antarctica through the dangerous waters of the Southern Ocean to the north on BOB BARKER, Captain Siddharth Chakravarty and his crew took care of the KUNLUN hundreds of miles to the southeast on the SAM SIMON.

The SAM SIMON crew led KUNLUN out of the Antarctic fishing grounds and then handed over evidence-relevant documents to Interpol and the New Zealand authorities.

Due to their long history of violations of fishing laws and their connection to the well-known Spanish crime syndicate, Vidal Armadores, to whom the ship belonged, they also searched for KUNLUN.

Like the THUNDER, Interpol searched the KUNLUN with a purple alarm, a wanted list that alerted the police authorities worldwide. This has been requested by New Zealand, Australian and Norwegian authorities.

The sister ships of the KUNLUN named YONGDING and SONGHUA were later seized on Cape Verde.

During a routine visit to Mindelo, I reported to Interpol, the New Zealand Ministry of Primary Industry and the Cape Verde judicial authorities that they were in port. Almost four years later, the two ships still remain in Cape Verde.

To get to the KUNLUN bridge, I had to climb over a mattress belonging to the Senegalese security guard, the lonely guardian of the ship. The console on the bridge has long been an empty case. All the electronic equipment for navigation was torn out, including the radar on which KUNLUN was able to track the position of the SAM SIMON.

If you look ahead, the ship has a slight flip to the port, as opposed to the starboard tilt that the THUNDER accepted before sinking. The THUNDER was deliberately sunk by its own captain Luis Alfonso Rubio Cataldo, who made this unfortunate decision to destroy evidence.

The captain from Chile, Luis Alfonso Rubio Cataldo, the leading engineer Agustin Dosil Rey from Spain and the second mechanic Luis Miguel Perez Fernandez, also from Spain, were sentenced to two years and eleven months in prison and to a fine of 15 million euros for forging documents, pollution and damage, and for neglectful conduct.

Nobody appiered to request the KUNLUN. The ship remains in the custody of the Senegalese government, whose use in fixing the ship was commendable.

In its decay, the former phantom now appears very real. Everything mystical that once surrounded the ship disappears with the actual decay.

If we ever have doubts that civil society, in cooperation with governments, is capable of stopping illegal fishing, all we have to do is look at this sad, dilapidated steel block that was once KUNLUN in Dakar.

And we remember the depths of the Gulf of Guinea, where the THUNDER lies 3,800 meters below sea level, at the same depth that the TITANIC sank.

I am a conservative. You can’t get more conservative than being a conservationist. Our entire raison de être is to conserve and protect.

The radicals of the world are destroying our oceans and our forests, our wildlife and our freedom.“ (Captain Paul Watson)
