Animal transports in EU: a sick system

On May 21, the Osnabrück (north Germany) Administrative Court put economic interest above the welfare of the animals and allowed the currently discussed transport of 528 cattle from Lower Saxony to Morocco!

Lower Saxony’s Agriculture Minister Otte-Kinast had prohibited the planned transport of breeding cattle by decree.

The cattle breeding company defended itself against this and won the case: a ban on transport had been overturned by the court!!

Now new recordings show the terrible mistreatment of European sheep in Jordan.

But this is not an isolated case – the system behind it has assumed frightening proportions.

Videos were leaked to the global animal welfare organization “Four Paws” showing dozens of sheep being brutally killed in a ditch near Amman, Jordan.
Meanwhile, their conspecifics have to watch their murder in a crowded paddock next to it.

Sheep from Romania and Spain were among those killed, as their ear tags revealed.
These are gruesome recordings that are now coming to light: The videos that “Four Paws” has now received show how a sheep is herded to the butcher, past other sheep that are already dead and lying on the ground in their own blood.

Another clip shows the last spastic movements of a half-dead animal while the butcher is skinning another sheep directly above it.

Right next to the slaughterhouse, in an overcrowded paddock, dozens of sheep are waiting for the same fate, full of fear and no possibility of hiding, and have to watch their conspecifics being murdered next to them.

ideology of carnism: crimes to animals are “your” right

People are so disconnected from whom they are eating. They are so disconnected from the mass suffering and torture that they are inflicting upon others of different species.


Neatly wrapped packages of someone’s murdered body, blood cleaned away from their flesh – their corpse remains unidentifiable from the individual who they once were. Their brutal murder remains hidden behind closed doors.
This holocaust thrives in secrecy.

“Your meat” had a face, a heart beat, a personality and a family. You paid for their murder.
“Your dairy” came from a mother who was raped and had her babies stolen from her.
“Your eggs” came from a female who’s reproductive system was exploited and her male babies were macerated alive on their first day of life.

If you aren’t vegan, you support and pay for rape, torture, slavery, abuse and murder.
If you aren’t vegan, you support and profit a holocaust.

And I mean…As to whether animal suffering is of a greater scale than human suffering, this seems inarguable to me.

Over 150 billion land animals are slaughtered every year, according to Farm Animal Rights Movement. To put that in a bit of perspective, the Population Reference Bureau estimates only 110 billion humans have ever lived.

So, of course, animal suffering is infinitely greater than its human equivalent.

In short, 99.99% of humans participate in a genocide and hold the biggest holocaust of all time, the Animal Holocaust, and call it their right, they call it normal.

Gary Yourofsky said: “Why would any human, poor or rich, black or white, gay or straight, religious or atheist, be allowed to rape, enslave, commodify and murder animals? Why would anyone be exempt from behaving ethically? If poor people aren’t allowed to have human slaves, or rape and murder children, then the animals are off limits too!”

We are here for the oldest and most oppressed group of all history: the animals.
We want justice and freedom for the animals, and we want for every wrong act against them to be stopped and punished.
And anyone who claims to have morals should be able to grasp that.

My best regards to all, Venus
