Rabbit Advocacy Animal Matters


George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

We are the living graves of murdered beasts,
Slaughtered to satisfy our appetites.
We never pause to wonder at our feasts,
If animals, like men, can possibly have rights.
We pray on Sundays that we may have light,
To guide our footsteps on the path we tread.

We’re sick of war, we do not want to fight-
The thought of it now fills our hearts with dread,
And yet - we gorge ourselves upon the dead.

Like carrion crows, we live and feed on meat,
Regardless of the suffering and pain
We cause by doing so, if thus we treat
Defenceless animals for sport or gain,
How can we hope in this world to attain
The PEACE we say we are so anxious for.

We pray for it, o’er hecatombs of slain,
To God, while outraging the moral law
Thus cruelty begets its offspring - WAR

Whenever people say 'We mustn't be sentimental,' you can take it they are about to do something cruel. And if they add 'We must be realistic,' they mean they are going to make money out of it. Brigid Brophy

Volume & profit are the key drivers of commerce/business with animals expendable production machines.

Accepting and celebrating our tyranny over animals is so wrong, so terribly wrong. Don’t be indifferent, don’t be silent. Make some noise, please! Help stop the animal holocaust. Carmina Gooch 
In their eyes there was love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal.

March 5, 2012 Meat Is the New Tobacco

February 10, 2018 Is dairy the new tobacco?

Comment: There are numerous reasons to ditch dairy, besides the ethical ones. Among them, it is full of additives, synthetic preservatives, and laden with saturated fat and cholesterol. We are the only species that drinks the lactation excretions of another species and the only species who continues to drink milk after being weaned, yet seventy percent of the world’s population is lactose-intolerant. For the animals, your health, and the environment, join the vegan movement. It’s time has come.

Industrial farming is responsible for more pain & misery than all the wars of history put together. Tens of billions of sentient beings, each with complex & emotions, live & die on a production line. The march of human progress is strewn with dead animals.

2018: EATING OUR WAY TO EXTINCTION will look at the most pressing issues of our time, such as environmental destruction, the western diet health epidemic, the twisted economics within the meat and dairy industries and present a comprehensive science-based solution to these problems - a shift towards the plant-based lifestyle; it will create a powerful case for both individuals and the planet. Through the work of many world renowned scientists, researchers and celebrities, EATING OUR WAY TO EXTINCTION will bring to life the reality of the true cost of our current relationship with animals and the environment that will create a powerful vision of the global movement towards a plant- based diet that is now beginning to unfold before our eyes.

Comment: When animals are treated as commodities their welfare will always be compromised. Our treatment of non-human beings can be a catalyst for a more just and compassionate society, or it can be a symptom of a society that has lost its moral compass.

Major meat companies in the United States and Canada have closed plants temporarily due to cases of the new coronavirus among employees and concerns about its spread.

April16, 2020 from NewsBlaze: While many U.S. slaughterhouses are closing, pork slaughterhouses and pork producers are bracing for another coronavirus challenge: a virus called Severe Acute Diarrhea Syndrome or SADS-CoV that also originated in China and targets pigs. Like SARS, MERS and COVID-19, SADS-CoV is bat-originated and hosted by an eaten animal.

Slaughterhouses (or slaughterplants) are a brutal end to a farmed animal’s sad, tortured existence, and now these cruel killing facilities are proving to be hot spots for COVID19 transmission.
