The Awassi Express sailed from Australia’s winter to the Middle Eastern summer in the lead up to the annual Muslim festival of sacrifice. But something went “wrong”. Approximately 2,400 sheep didn’t make it to port.
They died of heat stress, some trapped in a bog of excrement, and someone on board filmed it.
This hell for the animals continues to this day.
One mass murder chases the next.
Decaying animals that lie in the ship for days and weeks, and not even a responsible person who would have to be released for violating the law, cruel conditions in mobile coffins with exotic names such as “Al Shuwaikh,” “Karim Allah”, “Elbeik”… the list could go on and on and everyone is horrified for a few days, everyone calls for more “animal welfare” and “respect for animal laws” but – as always – nothing changes.
And we can be sure that what we learn through videos is only a small part of what is really happening, and most importantly, we can be sure that such crimes happen much more often than we know.
And every time we write petitions to politicians, ministers, commissions, that means to bodies that treat their grandmother’s old console better and more carefully than do with animals.
Hypocrisy, ignorance, indifference to cruelty, mass murders, violations of protective laws and agreements – these are the main characteristics of everyone who benefits from animal corpses
Rights and dignity are reserved exclusively for humans and are often completely denied to non-human animals.
The machinery draws its energy from the large power stations of business, press, religion, and politics, but the energy itself is extracted in the deep, dark pits of human stupidity.
We don’t have to wait for politicians or laws.
We can always start to create real animal welfare by denying the animal profiteers our money.
Where there is no demand, there is no production and where there is no production, there are no “failures” and not even “unfortunate individual cases”.
My best regards to all, Venus
