💔 The number of abandoned animals explodes in summer.

Abandoning an animal, a member of your family, is an immense cruelty and is a CRIME.

EU: Eurogroup for Animals condemns the authorisation of insect-protein in pig and poultry feed.

Eurogroup for Animals condemns the authorisation of insect-protein in pig and poultry feed

20 August 2021

News

On 17 August 2021, the European Commission adopted the decision to amend the feed ban regulation, allowing insect-derived protein in pig and poultry feed. While the European Commission announced it as a step “in our journey towards more sustainable feed chain”, Eurogroup for Animals believes this decision could lead to false solutions and distract from the urgent need to transform into sustainable food systems.

The Farm to Fork strategy recognises the urgent need for a shift in European diets towards more plant-based food, but it also emphasises the role of improved animal welfare in a sustainable food system. Eurogroup for Animals cautions that allowing insect protein for feed will go contrary to the intentions in the Farm to Fork strategy by preserving the status quo of factory farming instead of achieving a dietary shift towards more plant-based diets in combination with higher welfare and sustainable  farming systems. Other than maintaining the status quo of intensive livestock farming, concerns are raised in the scientific literature with regards to environmental consequences, risks to the One Health approach and the lack of knowledge about insect welfare.

We are deeply concerned that insect protein is announced as a sustainable solution to animal feed. Replacing soy with insects, that will be industrially produced on a massive scale, to feed factory farmed pigs and poultry is not the way forward to create sustainable food systems. We need to urgently move towards a dietary shift, with more plant-based diets and systems with fewer animals that allow for higher animal welfare. Unfortunately, the decision to authorise the use of insect-derived protein for pig and poultry feed serves to prop up intensive animal production in the EU rather than supporting the transition to a truly sustainable food system

There are more laws and regulations surrounding my trash and trash disposal than there are for sentient species who have the same capacity to suffer, feel pain, and experience emotion as humans. To treat animals like this, hidden in dystopian waste lands of suffering, toxicity, and greed, means humans have lost the war with good, the human species is apathetically evil towards the most vulnerable and helpless beings. It is estimated that globally greater than 4700 animals are killed each SECOND. How long does it take you to rationalize killing them? Consuming them? Forgetting them? Who are you consuming and how did she suffer and violently die for your 5-minute meal? SL

Australia-New South Wales: officials shot and killed shelter dogs

A government probe has been launched after officials in New South Wales, Australia, shot and killed shelter dogs that were due to be rescued by volunteers – allegedly in an effort to prevent the volunteers spreading Covid-19.

The dogs, one of which had just given birth to puppies, were housed in a pound in the northwest of the state, and were due to be picked up by volunteers from a Cobar-based animal shelter.

However, the Sydney Morning Herald reported on Sunday that workers with the Bourke Shire Council had shot them dead last week.

The council ruled that having the volunteers come and collect the animals would somehow put council employees and the local community, including “vulnerable Aboriginal populations” (!!!) at risk of catching and spreading Covid-19, the Herald reported, citing the Office of Local Government, the council’s watchdog group.
The group is now investigating whether animal cruelty laws were broken by the council.

The volunteers say they had Covid-safe measures in place for their trip to the pound, and are reportedly distressed by the mass killing of the abandoned animals.
Moreover, it is unclear why the council considered their trip to pose such a threat, given that there have been no recent cases of Covid-19 reported in the Cobar area.

The shootings triggered an outcry on social media.

“Killing innocent rescue dogs over human paranoia of a virus that has a 99.8% chance of survival is beyond cruel,” one commenter wrote on Twitter.
“The world has gone mad.”

International commenters soon joined in to express their disgust at the animal executions.

“Australia is absolutely consumed by deranged COVID insanity.
Now they’re shooting and killing rescued dogs to prevent shelter volunteers from leaving their homes to go pick them up and care for them. Many Australians seem grateful to be locked down.https://t.co/uuImfgznXq”

“Australia has reached new levels of depravity.Rescued dogs have been shot, so that workers at the shelter don’t have to travel to look after them.It’s just mindless now.#animals#COVID19#CovidVic#covidnswhttps://t.co/1XNs9oOxZ0″

Australia has turned into a dystopian nightmare worthy of the Mad Max movies. Shooting dogs so people won’t travel to get them is savage behavior.
— Brian Bailie Jr. (@BrianBailieJr) August 22, 2021

“We are deeply distressed and completely appalled by this callous dog shooting and we totally reject the council’s unacceptable justifications that this killing was apparently undertaken as part of a COVID-safe plan,” Lisa Ryan, a spokeswoman for Animal Liberation, said in a statement.

Much of Australia remains under some of the world’s most draconian lockdown policies, with Prime Minister Scott Morrisson promising to keep restrictions in place until 70% of the population is vaccinated.
At present less than a third of Australian adults are fully inoculated.

In New South Wales, people in the Greater Sydney area have been ordered to remain at home until the end of September.
Even outside Sydney, leaving the home is forbidden in much of the state without a “reasonable excuse,” car travel is banned save for in emergencies, home visits are not allowed, and all residents must carry proof of address outside the home.

And I mean…All heads of state in the world who feel called to their new role as dictator have been elected to their posts by democratic elections.
It is unique in human history!
None of the corona dictatorships that have emerged worldwide have needed tanks
Fear, wrong numbers, horror statistics and obedient citizens.
That was enough.

It’s no longer about Corona.
It’s about the billions that most heads of government have paid in advance to the pharmaceutical industry for a useless vaccination, and have to come back into the state treasury as soon as possible – from us!

It’s about absolute monitoring and control through the Green Pass.

It is about the division of the society vaccinated / not vaccinated, because only in this way can a society be attacked and better manipulated.

The story about the corpse sacks fits in well with this.
We read in the press:

“Europe orders free and abundant corpse bags for what is currently still being planned, namely the fourth wave!
Turkish textile company produces one million corpse bags for Europe!
– Body bags are ordered instead of shirts.
A textile company in Turkey has now received a major order from Europe; the company, with 110 employees, produces 6,000 corpse bags a day”

https://www.trtdeutsch.com/news-turkei/turkische-textilfirma-produziert-eine-million-leichensacke-fur-europa-2014033

You can purchase such a no-name product here on Amazon. It may even be made in Turkey, but it is certainly not from Adidas, not at the price.
Of course, the product is absolutely leak-free, strong and durable.
Try them out.

My best regards to all, Venus
