All beings have their own language
Those who are against slavery, discrimination, injustice and torture should look at the content of their stomach.
Animals too, shall see the salvation of God (Luke 3:6), animals too, have a soul (1 Cor 15:44), man has no advantage over the beasts (Ec 3:19), the covenant is between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth (Genesis 9:16-17)
Michael Rutzen a shark whisperer. Dean Schneider the lion whisperer. Blah blah blah. You know what it is about these people? They are simply respectful enough to COMMUNICATE with animals as living beings. Which doesn't mean they forget, that these in fact are, animals.
They give the proper love, respect, and communicate with them in their own language.It's the most obvious thing in the world. But it is ego that prevents people to communicate with other beings.
If you want to communicate with a person from another language you look up a translator, learn their language or their culture. How many people read into animals before they get a pet? Any idea how many swans and ducks die because people feed them bread? 'Do you know how a calf begs not to be killed? "They all beg for their mothers in language that requires no translation... They are defenseless... They are frightened... They cry pitifully for their mothers...as they are being dragged onto the killing floor, they are still looking for their mothers, still desperately needing her nurturing presence, especially at that dark time when they are frightened and needing protection more than ever in the midst of the terrible sights, and sounds, and scents of death all around them, and, in their despair, in their want for a shred of consolation and protection, most try to suckle the fingers of their killers'.
Racism & Speciesism
Genetics is proof of the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race. Racism is when the results of genetics are distinguished as inferior or superior to another race or races. You do not compare snakes to swanes, bees to elephants, each creation of God have their own use, beauty and smarts.
Civil rights and labor movement hero Cesar Chavez was an animal rights activist too....
"We cannot defend and be kind to animals until we stop exploiting them. Exploiting them in the name of science, exploiting them in the name of sport, exploiting them in the name of fashion, and, yes, exploiting them in the name of food. The basis for peace is respecting all creatures." - Cesar Chavez, 1992, accepting the Lifetime Achievement Award from In Defense of Animals.

Study Finds that Cows Talk and Show Compassion Just Like Humans
'When we think of compassionate, intelligent creatures, cows normally don't come to mind. However, cows actually communicate how they feel to one another through their moos, according to a new study. The animals have individual vocal characteristics and change their pitch based on the emotion they're feeling, according to research at the University of Sydney. "It is like she is building a Google translate for cows," said Cameron Clark, an associate professor at the university about Ms. Green.' (source)

Dirty Pigs? Pigs are very intelligent and remarkably clean animals, but the stables are so small that they are forced to use their living space as a toilet. Something a pig would NEVER do in nature: they walk tens of meters from their living space to do their needs there. These animals are intelligent and made insane, just as we humans would turn insane when forced to live like that. You want to see which creature is dirty? Go visit a random public toilet.

Mass Media Refused To Report Their Brutal & Vicious Murders
Channon Christian and Chris Newsom. In 2007 the couple was raped, tortured and killed, four people were convicted in their deaths. Channon Christian was gang-raped, choked and bound she was stuffed inside a trash can while still alive, a federal prosecutor told jurors in opening court statements today.
Assistant U.S. Attorney David Jennings said this afternoon in U.S. District Court. Jennings revealed details about the killings of Christian and her 23-year-old boyfriend, Christopher Newsom, as a jury was seated in the trial of Eric Dewayne "E" Boyd.
Boyd is charged with helping hide out Lemaricus "Slim" Davidson, the alleged ringleader in the carjacking and killing of Christian and Newsom. Jennings also told jurors that Newsom, who had been raped by his assailants, was shot three times.
"These people tie him up, gag him, wrap him in cloth material ... shot him in the back, shot him in the neck, and they shot a kill shot to his head. Then, his body was doused with gasoline and set on fire."
(we must pray that, unlike Channon, and unlike Kris Donald the British victim of a similarly brutal racist murder , Chris Newsom was in a kinder place before this final part of his awful ordeal began) Christian's body was later found in a trash can in a house on Chipman Street. Newsom's body was found nearby along railroad tracks.
Further details of the opening of the case can be read here on a local Knoxville news site, the story has, so far only been reported locally, while the main US news channels studiously seek to ignore it. Hat Tip: Newsnet14

Only Satan Hunts Innocent Blood.
Exactly one week before the incoming Biden administration assumed power, the outgoing Trump administration gave the U.S. a parting "gift" that perfectly symbolized its term as a whole when the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) announced it would be partnering with the National Rifle Association (NRA) to "assist in the education and engagement of sportsmen and shooters." In both its timing and details, this was an outrageously hostile gesture, towards both the Biden administration and the citizens of the U.S. Please join us in urging the USFWS, now led by Biden appointees, to immediately rescind this offensive agreement.
Unsurprisingly, the Memorandum of Understanding that was signed on January 13, is extremely lopsided in favor of the NRA. The agreement is explicitly focussed on "migration corridors and movement of big game species." In other words, the USFWS has asked the NRA to encourage the hunting of big game "trophy" animals and often protected species in the unprotected migration corridors that species use to travel in-between national parks and other protected lands.
Not one iota of this agreement has anything whatsoever to do with conservation. The USFWS's stated goal is "to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats." But the NRA has no expertise in conservation strategies, wildlife movement, or migration corridors. Instead, its goal here is plainly on increasing gun sales and killing more protected wildlife. Moreover, this agreement would divert precious resources from the USFWS that would otherwise be devoted to high-priority conservation actions. And given the fact that we are living in the midst of an existential extinction crisis, there are no shortages of other conservation projects urgently in need of funding and support.
Neither the USFWS nor the U.S. stand to gain anything from this agreement. Quite to the contrary, both stand to lose a great deal, both in lives and in integrity. (source)

I shall live such a life as a good human being that you may find it worthy to serve as an example for your children. I have no personal goals other than to fulfill your hopes and aspirations. I shall always serve you, day and night, in the spirit of kindness, justice and equality. As the king of a Buddhist nation, my duty is not only to ensure your happiness today, but to create the fertile ground from which you may gain the fruits of spiritual pursuit and attain good Karma. This is how I shall serve you as King."

Sneezing Dogs, Dancing Bees: How Animals Vote
Not only humans vote. Any animal living in a group needs to make decisions as a group, too. Even when they don't agree with their companions, animals rely on one another for protection or help finding food. So they have to find ways to reach consensus about what the group should do next, or where it should live. Species ranging from primates all the way to insects have methods for finding agreement that are surprisingly democratic. In a 2010 study, Dr. Manser and her colleagues studied move calls in a dozen meerkat groups living in the Kalahari Desert in South Africa. Groups ranged from six to 19 individuals. But the scientists found that only about three group members had to mew before the whole party decided to move along. The group didn't change direction, but it would double its speed to reach better foraging grounds. read more (source)
In his 2010 book "Honeybee Democracy," Thomas D. Seeley, a Cornell University biologist, writes that we can learn a lesson from the bees: "Even in a group composed of friendly individuals with common interests, conflict can be a useful element in a decision-making process."
Biologists call this phenomenon - when animals change their behavior in response to a critical mass of their peers doing something - a quorum response. Dr. Manser thinks quorum responses show up in human decision making, too.
"If you're in a group and somebody says, 'Let's go for a pizza,' and nobody joins in, nothing's going to happen," she said. But if the pizza craver is joined by a couple of friends, their argument becomes much more convincing.

Racism In Belgium
Targeting children and young adults (11-24) as audience, racists from Belgium write on their website www.watwat.be : 'Racism ensures that especially white people have power and are positively portrayed: most teachers, school principals, home owners, employers, lawyers, judges, journalists, important politicians, models, rich people... are white.' Of course the majority as mentioned above is white, when they are inhabitants in a white country. What is the majority in Kenya for example, home owners, judges etc. You think white???
Fact: Europe is not USA. Stop pretending it is.
We have our own piles of shit here to deal with and racism is not one of them, every single being is being discriminated. In Europe you do not get a bullet in your stomach because of trigger happy officers because guns aren't sold at local supermarkets like in Wild West USA.
Stop spreading hatred to cover your own incompetence to make something of life.
See, everybody is discriminated. Women still earn less then men, when you are born in let's say Holland and live for 30 years there people still compliment you on speaking the language so well...! You don't see these discrimination cry babies appreciating what they have. If they dont like it, go fight where there is real discrimination. Like for the Albino community in Africa.
Imagine what people could accomplish if they removed their ego and stood up for the weakest ones among them. All these so called antiracists fill their stomaches with animals that begged to live and turn a blind eye for the children that need their attention the most.

New Zealand Legally Recognises Animals as 'Sentient' Beings
17 mei 2015 - The New Zealand Government has formally recognised animals as 'sentient' beings by amending animal welfare legislation. The most recent amendment to New Zealand's Animal Welfare Act states that the purposes of the legislation include recognising "that animals are sentient" and "to require owners of animals, and persons in charge of animals, to attend properly to the welfare of those animals".
Fortunately, the animals in New Zealand are recognized as a living beings with feelings. In the Netherlands as in many other 'civilized' countries not yet. If you live in the Netherlands, click here and sign the petition

Zapopan Becomes First City In Mexico to Legally Protect Farmed Animals
On July 13, 2020, a new animal protection regulation was approved by the Government Council of Zapopan, Mexico that establishes protections for farmed animals and criminalizes farmed animal cruelty.
These new regulations in Zapopan aim to protect all animal species and include criminal punishment for the failure to stun animals prior to slaughter, as well as for animal mutilation or veterinary negligence. This is another historic milestone in animal protection as it, for the first time, looks to shield animals killed for consumption from experiencing further abuse. The reforms state that when killing animals destined for consumption, one must comply with the Official Mexican Standards during the slaughter,

Sheep surprisingly intelligent
Did you know that over 70% of Australian wool sheep suffer a painful and outdated mutilation practice called mulesing?
Help protect millions of Australian lambs by signing the FOUR PAWS
petition calling for an end to mulesing.Mulesing is a process where a
lamb (usually two to 10-week-old) is restrained upside-down in a cradle
to cut off skin folds around the buttocks and tail with a pair of metal
The procedure leaves an open wound and after healing leaves a bare area where no wool grows. The procedure is performed on millions of lambs without any form of pain relief.
Reputation: Sheep are stupid, defenceless and harmless creatures that mope about on hillsides doing not very much. They are good for two things: being eaten and producing wool.
Reality: Sheep are actually surprisingly intelligent, with impressive memory and recognition skills. They build friendships, stick up for one another in fights, and feel sad when their friends are sent to slaughter (source)

The Finnish capital Helsinki is allocating 100,000 euros to help children from primary education switch to oat milk
Oat milk is a plant-based alternative to dairy milk from cows. The latter product is encountering more and more objections. Not only is livestock farming responsible for environmental problems such as the nitrogen crisis and global warming, but there is also increasing criticism of the cruelty behind cow's milk. A cow only produces milk if she has a calf every year, which is then taken away from her. This - literal - kidnapping leads to emotional scenes in the animals. Read more (source)
Birds do have a brain cortex-and thin
Owls, such as this Eurasian Eagle-Owl (Bubo bubo), as well as crows and pigeons have brain organization-and probably cognitive ability-that is similar to mammals. The term "birdbrain" used to be derogatory. But humans, with their limited brain size, should have known better than to use the meager proportions of the bird brain as an insult. Part of the cause for derision is that the mantle, or pallium, of the bird brain lacks the obvious layering that earned the mammalian pallium its "cerebral cortex" label. However, birds, and particularly corvids (such as ravens), ..read more
Lack of Federal Laws Causes Severe Animal Cruelty
Did you know that currently we have ZERO federal laws governing the conditions of which farm animals are raised in?
Thanks to the lack of laws and enforcement, animals currently suffer through horrible conditions on factory farms.
Animals are often given so little space and kept in severely cramped areas. Hens, for example, are kept in small cages, chickens and pigs are kept in jam-packed sheds, and cows are kept in crowded and filthy conditions.
Antibiotics are used to make animals grow faster and to keep them alive in the otherwise unsurvivable conditions. Research shows that factory farms' widespread use of antibiotics can lead to antibiotic-resistant bacteria that can potentially be very dangerous to humans.
Majority of factory-farmed animals have been genetically altered to grow larger or to produce more milk or eggs than they naturally would, until it drastically affects their health. Some chickens are made to grow so large that their legs cannot support their bodies; they suffer from starvation or dehydration when they can't walk to reach food and water as a result.
When they've grown large enough to slaughter or their bodies have been worn out from producing milk or eggs, animals raised for food are crowded onto trucks and transported for miles through all weather extremes, typically without food or water. At the slaughterhouse, those who survived the transport will have their throats slit, often while they're still conscious. Or, they're plunged into the scalding-hot water for defeathering or hair-removal tanks or while their bodies are being skinned or hacked apart.
The quantity of milk that dairy cows produce decreases substantially around 10 months after giving birth due to the fact that the cows only produce milk to feed their babies. In order to continue and maximize milk production, cows are annually impregnated which increases stress, and the likelihood of sickness and premature death. Each cow is genetically manipulated to produce up to 100 pounds of milk per day - ten times more than they would produce naturally.
Dairy cows commonly suffer from a variety of illnesses because intensive milk production, including widespread lameness and mastitis, a painful and often fatal infection of the udder. Pharmaceutical products that are used to infections often have bad side effects. Dairy cows produce an average of 729 days of milk, which amounts to 2.4 lactations, before they are considered "spent", and sent to slaughter. 3 million young dairy cows are slaughtered each year in the U.S. Dairy cows are typically killed between 2 to 5 years of age despite the fact that they can live up to 25 years.
Newborn calves are permanently separated from their mothers, usually within 1-3 days, since the mother/calf bond intensifies over time and delayed separation can cause even worse emotional distress for the calf and mother.
Nearly 100% of calves born to dairy cows in the U.S. are removed from their mothers within the first 12 hours of birth.
As a result, dairy calves separated from their mothers are denied their mother's milk, which contains all the essential nutrients and antibodies the calf needs.
Calves are typically fed milk substitutes, often from a dried powder base, and raised without a mother to care for them. Mothers and calves form deep bonds, much like humans, which makes it inhumane to separate one from the other. In natural herds, the mother-calf bond is the strongest bond in a cow's life.
With the production of dairy also comes the production of veal. Veal only exists to help farmers make money from male calves born to dairy cows; they would otherwise be considered useless as they can't produce milk. As a result, they are slaughtered and sold for veal at a few months of age.
The corporations that run current factory farms are full of greed and driven by solely by money. Factory farms have become the leading method of food production in America. The U.S. meat industry is a multi-billion dollar per year industry and feeds millions of people around the world. In 2014, the U.S. meat industry, which processes cattle, sheep, pigs, chickens, and turkeys, sold 186 billion dollars worth of meat. With the ability to gain great profits, factory farm corporations are motivated to get meat to domestic and international consumers as efficiently and inexpensively as possible. Today, only a handful of giant factory farm companies control meat production in the United States, all of which are wealthy, politically powerful, and take in no consideration of the animals at all. These companies provide cheap meat for people around the world and are only interested in keeping their high-production, low-cost.
Why do nothing and let these animals suffer? How much longer before we take a stand and actually enforce change? If you care about all the innocent lives being tortured every day as factory farms inherit more and more money at their expense, then please sign this petition.
My proposal to our state government is as follows:
All Ag-Gag laws in Texas (which criminalize whistleblowers on farms) should be lifted. Surveillance around factory farms should be allowed and enforced. HB 1643, the act which makes it illegal to use a drone to take photos over a concentrated animal feeding operation, should be revoked.
The 28 Hour law, which requires vehicles transporting animals for slaughter to stop every 28 hours to allow animals exercise, food, and water, should be modified to 14 hours and include poultry species as well.
Animals on factory farms should not be genetically manipulated to produce unhealthy amounts of eggs, milk, etc to the point of which it affects their health. Killing and selling the young of any animal (especially veal) should become illegal, due to the fact that it is inhumane.
