Enough of this BS. Lets start speaking out "No more Abuse".

Hundreds of orangutans are believed to have died in fires deliberately lit by palm oil companies.
Conservationists say the rare Sumatran orangutan could be wiped out within weeks.
‘It is no longer several years away, but just a few months or even weeks before this iconic creature disappears,’ said Briton Ian Singleton, of the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme."
another indefensible act of capitalistic greed.
however, this sort of thing should not come as a surprise. capitalistic greed has wiped out human populations with the same lack of consideration throughout history.
oppressors are not speciesist!
they don't give a damn about who they destroy as long as they get what they are after.
some people don't seem to understand this even after 5000 yrs of documented history.
it's worth paying attention to steve's sidebar comments:
From Athens to Paris to Brazil, there is growing realization that politics as usual just won’t cut it anymore. We will always lose if we play by their rules rather than invent new forms of struggle, new social movements, and new sensibilities. The defense of the earth requires immediate and decisive action: logging roads need to be blocked, driftnets need to be cut, and cages need to be emptied. But these are piecemeal and reactive measures, and in addition to these tactics, radical movements and alliances must be built that unites struggles on behalf of humanity, nonhuman animals, and the earth in a politics of total liberation.
The sense of urgency is rising in proportion to the severity of the crisis. Increasingly, calls for legislative change, moderation, compromise, and taking the slow march through the institutions can be seen as grotesquely inadequate, as growing numbers of people gravitate toward more radical tactics of change. “Reasonableness” and “moderation” in the current situation seem to be entirely unreasonable and immoderate, as “extreme” and “radical” actions appear simply as necessary and appropriate.
as jon balcombe puts it:
"One often sees the term “extremism” applied to certain acts of animal activism, but never is it used in reference to the extreme cruelties routinely carried out by the animal industries themselves"
it's not considered terrorism as long as you can make a buck from it ... at least, that's the way it is right now.
This is unbelievable! Our species needs extinction now before the planet and all of its inhabitants are destroyed. Signed the petition.
Best talks of direct action and not diet, yet if everyone stopped eating all products made from suffering we would make a huge dent. Still cages need to be emptied, circuses ended as well as shutting down zoos and sending all animals to sanctuaries.
There are so few of us who truly care that it's all overwhelming and wonder if we can prevent the inevitable destruction of all living beings and the environment.
Very True Tricia,
I post this here because as you mentioned more then just diet.
Exposing such stupidity and criminal deception is also important.
What? Cure? lol
Insane!!!!! Grilling animals to find a cure for diseases that are caused from eating animals. These charities are so screwed up and dychotomous it is beyond belief. It's like all the cat and dog shelters who serve pigs and cows to benefit their animals. Such ignorance is abhorrent.
i cant view it, is there another version?
greetings merryellen! welcome to 30bad!
here is another location for the video:
When you have a moment sign this petition.
This is in excusable and a police officer is behind this.
Animal abuse is abhorrent, obviously. However that doesn't mean that I can necessarily support the judicial system.
To paraphrase William Godwin: Punishment proposes to itself the concept of reformation. Coercion cannot convince, cannot conciliate, but on the contrary alienates the mind of him against whom it is employed. Coercion has nothing in common with reason, and therefore can have no proper tendency to the cultivation of virtue. Reason is omnipotent: if my conduct be wrong, a very simple statement, flowing from a clear and comprehensible view, will make it appear to be such; nor is it probable that there is any perverseness that would persist in vice , in the face of all the recommendations with which virtue might be invested, and all the beauty in which it might be displayed.
godwin just hadn't gotten around to knowing how wrong he was, craig.
his argument is based on unfounded assumptions.
you don't have to convince anyone - just get them out of the picture.
