The sadist/scientist stance: If we harm other animals to save humans, we say they are not like us, as they do not feel pain, but rather, just nociception; or, just a signal to the brain, but that isn’t feeling pain these sci-sadists say. So, if these non humans are not like humans, there should be no point in testing on them since the results will not be beneficial to teach us about what outcomes to expect with humans. But when they have to invent a justification to live out their sadism on these other earthlings, via their “research”, they then make the claim that these other animals are very similar to humans, hence give us a glimpse into how drugs, chemicals, cosmetics, and foods will affect humans.
Evolution of Victory… Now It’s The Animals Turn (by etherealhaven)
Our world has seen significant changes over the past 70 plus years. We’ve seen the end of World Wars, the victory of the Civil Right’s movement, release of political prisoners, ousting of dictators, freedom to vote, enormous courage, we’re watching the change in tide in same-sex marriages… Now, it’s time for the animals to claim victory over oppressors and abusers.
Set to “Faith of the Heart” by Rod Stewart, I hope that my little video will make a change in your heart, your mind, and implore you to visit www.earthlings.com and watch the movie, and decide for yourself.
As humans, we are the ONLY VOICE for helpless animals suffering needlessly, for the sole pleasure of human consumption, fashion, and enjoyment.
30 years ago, animal people were arguing that we needed welfare reform to help animals “now.” It did not work; it won’t work; it cannot work. We have had animal welfare for more than 200 years & we are exploiting more animals today in more horrific ways than at any time in history.
If that image horrifies you, then please read this. Don’t ignore it.
Seal hunting is practiced only in 6 countries: Canada, Namibia, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, and Russia. The majority of hunting takes place in Canada where more than two million seals have been killed over the past decade. This is the largest slaughter of marine mammals on earth. 98% of seals brutally murdered are less than 3 months old. (Russia have supposedly banned the clubbing of Seals less than a year old - oh the compassion!)
They are killed for their fur - although ‘killed’ is perhaps not the right word, they are hacked to death: a process that takes a few minutes whilst other seals look on in fear and panic as they await their fate. The carcasses are left to rot on the ice.
My local MP, Caroline Lucas, is part of a campaign to get Europe to boycott the trading of Seal fur & Seal related products - you can read more HERE. Sadly the only language hunters understand is MONEY. If you DO NOT support their trade, it should drastically reduce the number of innocent animals being savagely slaughtered each year.
Please, if these statistics, and the image horrifies you then do something about it. Kick up a fuss - write letters & emails, attend protests, educate your friends, spread the word, never buy seal products, sign petitions… I have been emailing and protesting from a young age, and although it is far from being banned the Seal hunt season receives enourmous media coverage from outraged journalist and broadcasters - this means we’re getting noticed! NEVER GIVE UP IF YOU BELIEVE IN SOMETHING.
It has been my dream from a young age to band the trading of ALL FUR, and this is something I feel so strongly and passionately about my voice shakes and I am moved to tears everytime I think about it.
