Morality requires, not to eat animals!

From the Blog: V changemakers.de

What happens to the cute little calves in the meat industry?

That decides the lot.
If it is a little calf girl, then it is allowed to “live” first. His fate is the dairy industry.

After a few months of “rest”, the little calf becomes pregnant. This usually happens when the little girl gets a metal rod rammed into her vagina and is thus fertilized. This then happens once a year.

Up to 5 times. After the last long-term pregnancy, the little girl is a young woman with an emaciated body. The pregnancies, as well as the enormous milk yield, wrench their bodies completely.

As a thank for her services, she is allowed to go to the slaughterhouse at the age of 5 and is killed. The “normal” life expectancy of a cow is up to 20 years. It dies as a child.

If the calf is a little boy, then the following happens:
Extract from an interview with a slaughterhouse worker:

“To make things go faster, 8-9 calves are put into the killing box.
We’ll fire straight away with the nail gun. Some we hit right, some not. It is also difficult to get every one right as the calves go mad with fear and jump over each other in panic.

At some point you will no longer know which animal is now anesthetized and which is not … at some point, they’ll all be hooked.

Many of them wriggle and scream as the tape continues and they are stabbed and dismembered with full consciousness. “

It is so dreadful to read these lines. It’s so horrible to think of something like that.

It’s so horrible to know that this happens EVERY DAY. Presumably right now.
Please tell me how you can continue to eat meat or animal products with lines like this? Tell me!

I would like to know how one can still be able to do so after such facts.

Emotional brutality to the highest degree. I find it deeply shocking to support something like that.

Nobody asks you to be vegan overnight.

But show the willingness to find solutions so that innocent and defenseless living beings do not find such a painful death.

THANKS!

And I mean…How far can animals be devalued?
The devaluation of animals is really so bizarre that it goes beyond imagination.
Wherever we look meat is practically everywhere.

We have reified animals, the meat producers see them as a product, the meat-eaters as food.
It has been taken for granted that meat is part of our lives.

The meat industry takes care of this with every dirty means.
One of them is that the animals that suffer and die in modern concentration camps are invisible.
We don’t see them.

Why is the meat industry going to such great lengths to keep the victims of our consumption invisible?
So that this fascist system can continue to exist without its function being called into question.

Because access to animal farms is not permitted for the public (including the media), the real facts about factory farming come from undercover research, which is therefore classified as illegal and unlawful!


But although these investigations have increased and become very professional in the last few years, the meat industry is mobilizing against it, with “bio” meat, “organic-keeping” chickens, “humane” slaughtering in farms … so that the consumer can calm his conscience as best as possible can.

Thousands of undercover videos and insider stories can still turn up; this is simply further rationalized as a “blatant exception” and “individual misconduct”.

Life has the highest value, and those who hate really animal suffering and death are not looking for excuses but for solutions.
Actually one is enough …! Don’t eat them!

My best regards to all, Venus

South Korea: Dog Meat Trade – Much More Action Needed NOW – See Below for All Details and Actions.

Please Pass This On to as Many Contacts as Possible – Especially if you have a Site or Animal Friends – Get Them to Act – Thanks.

WAV Comment – we have attempted to do our little bit by alerting folk to the issue of dog meat farms in South Korea.  Please click here to get a link to all our past posts:

“Those who have the privilege to know have the duty to act.”
-Albert Einstein
 

After our involvement; and the immense hard work of organisations such as KARA, it is very depressing to see that less than 1% of people have filled in the e ‘people petitions’ which we have supported.  These are official petitions to the government of South Korea.

It is simple and quick to undertake; and with enough support it can make all the difference in the future to the innocent dogs being held in the most barbaric conditions on dog meat farms.

Despite the fact that dog and cat meat consumption is an everyday occurrence and is being carried out all over South Korea, it is NOT LEGAL in that country. Their Government does nothing to stop this illegal practice and they seem happy to ignore it; many Korean citizens are just as apathetic and must also be held accountable.

This is the 21st Century, and it is high time that all South Koreans, leaders and general public alike, stand up and take responsibility to enforce their own country’s laws. South Korea and South Koreans cannot continue to ignore these brutal and unethical trades, so let us campaign to urge each of South Korea’s cities to enforce their laws and to put an immediate end to these illegal dog and cat meat trades. 

The e-People petition is the South Korean government’s official petition site and your petition will receive a response from the Korean government. Anyone from all countries can file a petition using the e-People petition.  It’s quite simple to file e-People petitions, but you can find help on (1) how to file e-People petition and (2) how to check the status of your e-People petitions on our website.

England: ‘Operation Snack’ – Free Vegan Food to British Truckers ‘Punished’ by Mental EU Legislation (Post Brexit).

WAV Comment:

Part of WAV is based in Kent; England.  Kent is the ‘gateway to Europe’ and is home to both Dover ferry harbour and the Channel Tunnel; both of which take hundreds of trucks (into and out of Europe) every day.  Sometimes, for reasons such as bad weather, freight numbers etc; trucks cannot get across directly to Europe; so they have to wait their turn on Kent roads to get to the port or Eurotunnel.  This queue of trucks is known to Kent people as ‘Operation Stack’. Kent people are used to the stack.

Above – Trucks destined for EU wait their turn (on Kent motorways) in ‘operation stack’

The police do what they can to control the situation, but masses of trucks waiting their turn on Kent roads is not uncommon.  British truckers have taken their own food (sandwiches etc) with them into Europe for decades; but now as some kind of ‘Trumpish’ revenge for leaving the EU (Brexit); EU officials have now stopped British truckers taking their own food with them into Europe. The ban prohibits drivers from carrying food for personal consumption in their vehicles.  How pathetic is that ?  – but so very EU; determined to make the UK ‘pay’ for leaving the EU.

What was once a simple ham and cheese sandwich carried by a driver in his own truck is now classed as a ‘personal import’ and is prohibited by the EU.  British truckers sandwiches are being taken from them as they try to cross into the EU.  They can eat (as they do) in EU truckstops; but they must not carry their own sandwiches into Europe !!!

So now step up Vegan sandwich makers to help the truckers – and ‘Operation Snack’

Vegan sandwiches which should satisfy both the haulers and EU officials checking their food as they contain NO MEAT.

‘Operation Snack’ will provide protein-rich seitan sandwiches to hungry haulers as they wait to cross into the EU.

The lunches are EU-compliant as they don’t contain animal products. Vegan sandwiches will be given to haulers with leaf-grabbing sticks. Therefore, ensuring safety regarding COVID-19.

Another finger to the EU one could say – a ‘crisis’ now taken advantage of in spreading the Vegan benefits to British and EU truckers.

UK Haulers Given Seitan Sandwiches From Vegan Meat Brand Following Brexit Ban

LoveSeitan is offering free EU-compliant vegan sandwiches to haulers following a new Brexit ban on taking on-the-go lunches over the borde

UK Haulers Given Sandwiches By Vegan Meat Brand Following Brexit Ban (plantbasednews.org)

Hungry British haulers are getting free seitan sandwiches from a vegan-meat brand, LoveSeitan, following the news their usual lunches had been ‘confiscated’ due to a new Brexit ban.

UK haulers are handed vegan lunches after new Brexit rules prohibits bringing their own lunches over the border - this is part of Operation Snack!

Hundreds of vegan EU-compliant sandwiches will be handed to the key workers near the Channel Tunnel as part of Operation Snack!. This is taking place on Saturday, January 23.

The Operation Snack! initiative is a team effort involving food supplier Simply Lunch.

The Road Haulage Association (RHA) has faced ‘mountains’ of paperwork for each load as a result of the new regulations.

The ban prohibits drivers from carrying food for personal consumption in their vehicles. This means many are going without food whilst at work.

RHA chief executive, Richard Burnet branded the ban ‘ridiculous’.

Brexit ban

New regulations over Brexit has caused disruption amongst lorries transporting goods from the EU over the border into the UK.

‘Brexit legislation gone mad’

He described the ban ‘a perfect example of Brexit legislation gone mad’.

“What was once a simple ham and cheese sandwich is now classed as a personal import and is prohibited”, he added.

Steve Swindon, co-founder of LoveSeitan, added: “Hauliers are essential to the British economy. 

“They are key workers in need of good food – especially as their sandwiches are being taken from them as they try to cross into the EU. We couldn’t standby and watch their food being confiscated.

The seitan sandwiches we’ve assembled with Simply Lunch are high in protein. They’re tasty and EU-
compliant as they don’t contain animal products.

“So, they should satisfy both the haulers and EU officials checking their food.”

The scheme stops hundreds of haulers from going hungry, as a result of the Brexit ban

The scheme will provide 500 protein-rich seitan sandwiches to hungry haulers as they cross into the EU.

The lunches are EU-compliant as they don’t contain animal products. Workers will hand haulers their lunches with leaf-grabbing sticks. Therefore, ensuring safety regarding COVID-19.

“Plant-based food is quite topical at the moment as it’s Veganuary“, Steve added.

As a result, the company is inviting other vegan food suppliers to join the initiative.

the political dimension of our food

“how do we manage to feed 60 billion “farm animals” but not 7.8 billion people?”

The global grain harvest is around 2 billion tons per year.
Over 500,000 are fed to the cattle of the rich nations – while in the 122 countries of the Third World 43,000 children die of hunger every day, according to UN statistics.
The poor countries sell their grain to the West while their own children starve in their arms.
So that we can enjoy our steak

A child who dies of hunger today is murdered.

good night, Venus
