World Animal Day – we need a new moral

Chickens in dirty cages, pigs that are brought to the slaughterhouse in dark trucks, cats that are abandoned, laboratory animals that suffer from excruciating experiments and never a dear hand caresses them – what else should we say about the suffering of the animals, what we haven’t said yet?

For most people it is just one reason to buy the cat Bijou’s favorite food for the day, the pig with no name is still eaten at the restaurant.

Because this society divides animals into edible and inedible.

This year we want to dedicate this day to farm animals.
Where politics have failed the most in every country.

Agricultural crime is an institutionalized crime that systematically acts with impunity.

Governments and EU leaders are responsible for the misery of farm animals. Because they are the lobbyists of the agricultural mafia.
This system works like this everywhere.

Basically, the entire factory farming system violates the law. The suffering of farm animals must finally come to an end.
Despite 15 years of the national goal of animal welfare, the interaction between legislation, enforcement, and jurisdiction does not work in the case of animal welfare offenses.

It is therefore imperative to rethink: we have to fight more massively, smarter, and more directly for animal rights; our fight has to be organized politically, like the fight for human rights back then.
The goal must be the abolition of murders, captivity, and exploitation rather than reform of animal slavery.
Animals don’t need pity, they need rights.

We don’t have any nice words or hopeful pictures to post for the day.
Not even on this day.
We can only take this opportunity to repeat that we will continue to fight for the animals  365 days a year.

My best regards to all, Venus

Solidarity with the 17 arrested DxE activists

I am at the California State Capitol right now and I just watched over a dozen of my friends get arrested for asking Governor Newsom to enact a moratorium on new factory farms and slaughterhouses.

Three activists are still on the balcony looking down to get an answer from the Governor. After months of delivering letters asking the Governor to take immediate action, we were forced to take action in their own hands.

Watch the video of activists being arrested and share the action to help us reach Governor Newsom.

Earlier this week, DxE activists chained themselves at the entrance of a massive pig slaughterhouse in California, blocking trucks from coming inside.

Armed security guards assaulted nonviolent activists on lockdown who stood in the way of pigs being slaughtered. Now, the government is ramping up their use of force and sending peaceful protesters to jail.

Instead of punishing nonviolent activists, Governor Newsom could lead the way. We’re calling on him to take the first step toward shutting down this dangerous industry and enshrining rights for all animals.

You can help by sharing today’s action!

Almira, DxE.

Direct Action Everywhere DxE is a global network of activists working to achieve animal liberation in one generation


And I mean…The system is afraid of 17 activists?
Why aren’t those arrested who steal children’s food in Africa and Asia for the flesh of rich countries?
The financial bandits who plunder and starve Africa, who assist in the murder of thousands of children every day, the murderous oligarchs who are responsible for the cruel factory farming?
Why aren’t they arrested?

Because they are the pillars of this system, it works with them.
This system couldn’t be more criminal, but governments only see the danger in 17 actors demonstrating for animal rights in front of the State Capitol!
Every citizen who passes in front of the Capitol and does not show solidarity, be it out of fear or conviction, should know that he is complicit in the misery of the world, that he is a collaborator with this fascist system, which in the future, not only animal rights activists but will arrest anyone who prevents it from carrying out its mass extermination of humans and animals.

Solidarity to the activists of DxE and we say respect and thank you

My best regards to all, Venus
