I thought after having been vegan for so long and watching so many undercover meat industry videos that I would be immune to watching so many videos. Not that I wouldn't be moved by it, but simply that it wouldn't break me to watch another one.
I was wrong.
I have lost all faith in humanity. I feel like as if I'm suffocating, everywhere I look someone is hurting someone else. In every place there is someone is suffering from greed, anger, and hatred.
Yesterday I was going through facebook and someone shared an article on stopping the production of videos of animal crush fetishes. These are videos in which women crush to small defenseless animals to death. Sometimes by stomping on them. Sometimes by shredding them into ribbons. Beheading them. Sitting on them. Driving nails through their brains. Ripping off their ears. It's been more than 24 hours since I just saw pictures and I still can't forget about it. I feel sick, filthy, bestial, preposterous. I just want to vomit.
I think rape isn't as sickening as this. People who get a sexual high from these videos are felches. They don't even deserve the title of filth. People like these are a sorry excuse for the insurance that wouldn't cover for their mother's abortion requests.

A very interesting topic with so many wonderful words of wisdom and courses of action.
We are all Vegan so to me there are 2 choices here.. Some like me have seen enough and cannot see anymore so I spend my time creating beauty rather than purposely finding more horror and to be honest there seems to be an infinite amount of horror going on around the planet in various forms and we could spend the rest of our lives trying to stop it.. The other option which is also valuable is direct action with the links given. If you are strong enough and guided to, go for direct action! But from what I am feeling in all this is "what is your purpose"..
I guess we can get caught up in fruitopia and see only beauty, while there is tremendous suffering going on that we purposely choose not to see or engage in. I like to clean up my own backyard, my own thoughts and footprint, and if I encounter horrible activities then I act.. Seeing nightmarish activities for me spreads it like wild fire, i get frustrated, angry, sad, and feel pathetic to be here on Earth.. I am not here to see it, I am here to heal and love, to spread frequency and harmony.. And for me it gets back to complicity, are there people in our lives that are contributing to this, if so delete them.
Maybe there is a middle ground where those who are sensitive to all this can act accordingly and still help besides just living in loveland.. I feel that middle ground is here, we are supporting eachother in difficult times, empowering eachother with love and insight and as a collective we are powerful beyond measure... But what do others feel, is there another way?

I was too afraid to watch the video, but the description itself was enough.
This can't be legal, right? I hope they go to jail for this.
This can't be legal, right?
different places have different animal cruelty laws - some places have nothing.
Legal no way!!! they prob employ too many people so someone is getting greased in the law side
here's another arrest:
