You all know I don't always put on the "happy face ".
Today is a low tolerance for animal eaters/abusers day.
I'm far from perfect, I'm very passionate about this veganism journey and I'm super emotional because I'm just fed up with the ignorance around me.
I'm fed up with it everyday, just today I'm dealing with it in a less gracious way.
Will I ever apologize for showing vulnerability or for showing my truth and my passion? NEVER.
I stand up for these poor beings that are abused and murdered for no reason other than money.
Fed Up with you animal eaters, abusers and exploiters...
@earthlingmcginn 🔥Sorry, I was gonna go vegan, but your tone really turned me off of it. ▪️So I did some research, found out about all the horrible practices done to livestock animals. Conscious debeaking of chickens to prevent the cannibalism they attempt because they're kept in such tiny enclosures, and starved before slaughter, living their lives as egg machines, and the pigs getting their tails, tusks, and testes all removed without anesthesia, cows and their constant cycle of rape, abuse, overmilking, and having their children stolen from them and either getting turned into veal or another baby/milk factory. I learned about the water demands, larger than anything else in the world, and even though I live in an area afflicted with drought. I learned about the rainforest destruction, how 97% has been for animal agricultural demands. I learned that it's at least half the problem in regards to climate change, if not more, and the primary cause of ocean acidification, with all the stuff that comes out of their asses going into the air or water. There are deadzones in the ocean, and the whole thing will be a deadzone by 2050, and who knows how badly that'll mess up the whole planet. I learned we grow enough food to feed everybody in the world, enough for about 10 billion people, but it gets filtered through livestock and people starve every day, even in first world nations like the US. I learned indigenous people get forced off their ancestral homes so we can take their land for farming animals as well, in a modern day Trail of Tears. I learned that plants have protein and that 14 out of 15 of the leading causes of death in the US are attributed to consumption of animal products, excluding only accidents. My grandfather may have died of heart disease, and my grandma of a stroke, and my father is diabetic, and I know it would be very easy for me to easily acquire these severe health issues myself if I eat a Standard American Diet, but I like meat, and you guys have a really rude tone, so I think I'll stick with the McDonald's, but not the apple pies, because those are vegan.
Fucking vegans. Can't you see you're preaching a pointless cause?
To all those meat-eaters who claim that they would go vegan but they prefer to dedicate their time and energy to helping human beings: Please explain how eating plants instead of animals impedes your ability to help other human beings.
When Germany holds its General Election [the Bundestag election] on September 24, for the first time ever the voting population will have an opportunity to vote for V-Party3, the world’s first vegan political party.
V-Party3, whose motto is ‘We Love Life’, was founded on April 30, 2016 in Munich.
Led by chairperson Ronald Wegner, the group stands to transform legislation concerning the environment, the economy, and animal rights. It calls itself the Party for Change, Vegetarians and Vegans and the ‘3’ in the party’s title is meant to represent the diversity of life.
Vegan Party3, however, wants to make the slaughter of animals completely illegal by 2030.
The party's manifesto suggests the seeds of positive environmental and ethical change can only be sewn by avoiding the creation and use of animal products altogether. Both these aspects feature in its wide-reaching Agraragenda 2030, which insists on a switch to bio-vegan agriculture by 2030.
"It is most decidedly not just a plant-based group," confirms Jennifer Nielsen, Federal State Chairman of the V-Party3 in Hamburg, "although establishing a plant-based diet for all German citizens is a party policy, we essentially believe that no animal deserves to die, and so it is a vegan, not a plant-based group." The commitment to placing animal rights as one of the focuses of the group reveals the deeper beliefs that V-Party3 is based on. It looks to effect real change by placing the needs of all sentient beings first and foremost.

BTW, he didn't have the cow's heart in front of me, we were out at night time, for drinks. I don't sit at the same table with people that eat animals anymore. #liberationpledge
Some would say I'm wasting my time going on dates with animals eaters. I think I'm planting seeds. This is my main focus right now. And really, isn't it a bit of a cop-out to just go on dates with other vegans? It's like refusing to go to a non-vegan restaurant. Boycotting something with your absence doesn't do anyone any good. I'm an ACTIVIST. I'm intense and passionate about this. So I choose the hard way. The WAY I'm truly passionate about. #bringingawareness
He is actually a really intelligent guy, and I think I made a dent in his beliefs. He has the capability to reconsider things. I highly believe it.
I never hide who I am, what I stand for, WHO I stand for. This is way more important to me than being in the wrong relationship for the sake of being in a relationship. Animals come first.
For the #animals#environment#health 💚💚💚
Nearly half of all fish consumed worldwide each year are raised on land, or ocean-based aquafarms. Farmed fish spend their entire lives in cramped, filthy enclosures, and many suffer from parasitic infections, diseases, and debilitating injuries.
Because they’re adapted to navigate vast oceans and use all their senses to do so, fish suffer immensely because of the cramped conditions and lack of space on fish farms. The tight enclosures inhibit their ability to navigate properly and cause them to knock against each other and the sides of the enclosures. This jostling causes sores and damages their fins.
High mortality rates, disease, and parasite infestations are common. Deformities and stress-related injuries are also a regular occurrence. On some farms, as many as 40 percent of the fish are blind—a problem that’s not addressed because blind fish net the same profit for farmers. Researchers have also found that half of the world’s farmed fish may suffer from hearing loss.
Nearly 40 percent of farmed fish die before the aquafarm operator is ready to slaughter them. Fish who survive are starved before they’re sent to slaughter in order to reduce waste contamination of the water during transport. Salmon, for example, are starved for up to 10 days.
Many traditional methods of slaughtering fish include suffocating fish either in the air or on ice, leaving them to endure pain and terror for 10 minutes or more before finally dying; piercing their hearts or severing their gill arches without prior stunning; and chilling the water temperature—which immobilises fish but may leave them fully conscious—before killing them with carbon dioxide.
Listen. If you think I'm going to cry over a few followers lost because of me posting graphic videos and pictures of animals being abused and slaughtered, think again. Every time I post something like that, I have the cowards unfollowing. But, I KNOW the seeds have been planted.
My page is not about being cutesy and airy and sugar coating the truth, in order to keep my followers or gain more that only expect "awe, so cute" posts. I post some light stuff too because seeing too much violence lowers vibrations and we don't want that.
My page is not ego driven. I'm trying to bring awareness about veganism and about the fact that people have many cruelty-free choices nowadays. I'm here, for the animals. I'm here for the lost people that eat themselves into depression, into illness and into death. I'm here for Mother Earth which we are killing at a very fast pace.
Do I give AF about people judging me or thinking I'm extreme for showing the truth and trying the make people make the connection? I don't need these types of people in my life anyways.
To those that continue to stick around and are strong and caring enough to get educated. THANK YOU. To those that have the intention, or have already made the transition to veganism, DOUBLE THANK YOU.
Together, we can make this world a much better and kinder place.
It won't happen over night, but it's happening! Thank you 🌱✌🏻
@belinda_vegan - History shows how many times we have got it wrong in the past. Is it so far fetched to believe we might still be wrong about some things today?
Over 1.5 trillion of our fellow Earthlings are killed by humans every year.
They aren't killed out of necessity. They are killed to add an extra flavour to our meals.
We can get everything we need for our health by eating plant foods (fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, seeds, legumes)
We can reduce violence, suffering and killing and can bring more peace to this world.
Together, we can end a horrific injustice, simply by going vegan.
Be the change 🙏🌱. _

Even though we got a wave of heat in the past week, I've already seen the basic ones wearing their uggs. They just couldn't wait to show off their very cruel, very expensive ugly boots.
Ugg boots are CRUEL and UGLY.
Instead of wanting so bad to be just like everyone else, why don't you try to be different and refuse to buy into something so inhumane?
CRUEL IS NOT COOL
Tonight. Armed with the strength, perseverance & love that only come from God, we showed up again. 💪🐔❤️🙏🏽We must keep showing up and speaking up for those who have no voice. • • • • #thefutureisvegan#cantstopwontstop
Want to help but can't make it to a vigil?! Lucky for you, we take donations! 😉 Donations will go to getting new tech, phone lenses, and audio equipment, quality signs for vigils and protests, and other expenses. The donation link is in our bio or on our Facebook page. Thank you to everyone who has already donated! ❤️ P.S. Keep your eyes peeled for a couple vigils coming up!
I educated myself , and oh how I wish I came across animal rights activists long before I made the connection ...If someone came to me to confront me about eating meat, show me pictures and videos of what's truly happening behind closed doors, I would have been vegan for much longer. I would have never fight against it, or tell them "but plants have feelings too"...I was brainwashed too. I didn't put two and two together. I kept saying I'm an animal lover but yet I was eating them ... I had no idea what speciesism was or the fact that the dairy industry IS the meat industry.
I was diagnosed with a chronic illness and they wanted to put me on hard core, expensive drugs, that would have masked the symptoms, and would have given me life altering side effects. I said FUCK NO. I did my own research and the first thing I came across that would have made my illness more bearable, with high potential to stop it from progressing, was to give up meat . And I did . Just like that. I gave up meat and it was EASY to do so. One thing led to another, I got deeper into my research and came across all this carefully and expensively hidden by these money hungry cruel corporations, realities. The egg industry, the dairy industry, the fish industry, fur etc etc ...
It's all things that most don't want to know because it takes them out of their comfort zone, out of their bubble of ignorance. It's easier to stay ignorant and comfortable instead of asking yourself "did someone just die for me because I like the way they taste or because their skin looks good on me?"
EDUCATE yourselves. Stop being selfish and stop choosing ignorance. Your choices have a heartbreaking effect on other lives. You're killing innocent beings, you're a huge part of global warming and you're making yourselves SICK!!!
There are free documentaries for you to watch. All you need is a bit of self awareness and willingness to start doing something that matters.

It's beyond my understanding how people can listen, acknowledge, understand and even in some cases agree with the concept of veganism, but not adjust their lifestyle to live in accordance with its core values. The excuses that it's too hard, meat tastes good, "we need it", one person or a few people dont make a difference among others are either not true or not a justification to take a life. Look at the world around us as we sit today... we treat animals like property; doing cruel and inhumane things to living sentient beings while screaming for peace and using things like 'terrorism' to control people's minds, there is an epidemic of disease surging it's way through the population all over the world; people overweight, underweight, cancer, heart attacks and everyone on some form of medication, the weather is completely abnormal and in a lot of cases devastating for places all over right now; high winds & flooding that have left people and animals in terrible conditions. Mother Nature has to be pretty darn pissed off with us and rightfully so.
I hope more people want to make the change moving forward into the future so that perhaps we have a shot at one. 🌱
MANY INNOCENT CHICKENS ARE BURNT ALIVE TO RID THEM OF THE "EVIL SPIRITS," AKA, the Avian Flu, adding insult to injury to the victims of our ignorance.These helpless animals not only suffer for our meat-eating appetite, but our ....but our superstitious belief in ancient medicine.

A BABY'S LIFE TAKEN, FOR A MEAL SOON FORGOTTEN. His face still attached. Why can't all people find it in their hearts, to extend their circle of compassion to include all animals? Tesla, Voltaire, Twain, Tolstoy, Leonardo da Vinci, Socrates, Plato, Pythagoras...they all abstained from animal consumption. Do you feel a better individual, than them?

I stand ready to run toward danger. I stand ready to protect the innocent and defend the weak. I stand because few will. The more you see, the more you suffer. The more you turn away, the more they suffer. Do what is hard because you know it to be right.

PIT BULL PUPPY BRUTALLY BEATEN BY OWNER JOSHUA TADDAC, 23, of HAYWARD, California. The puppy, Allie, was able to hide and survive. She was found in serious condition and taken to the vet. Her top jaw was broken; she had a missing tooth and extensive bruising. Allie went into surgery Wednesday.
Joshua Taddac of Hayward pleaded NOT GUILTY to a felony animal cruelty charge, in spite of having used, not only his fists, but a 6-foot rod. Bail for Taddac was set at $10,000.
Allie WON'T be returned to her abuser.
The Tri-Valley Animal Rescue (TVAR) is collecting donations to pay for the cost of surgery. Donations can be made by visiting TVAR.org and putting “Allie” in the notes section of the donation.
Via @veganvip 🐾 Unfortunately we don't have crossing guards everywhere for the animals. We need more animal Bridges and Crossings. Those are structures that allow animals to safely cross human-made barriers like highways.
According to Defenders of Wildlife there are 750,000 to 1.5 million animals hit by vehicles in the USA every year and costs the United States $8 Billion a year.
The first wildlife crossings were constructed in France during the 1950s. European countries including the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, and France have been using various crossing structures to reduce the conflict between wildlife and roads for several decades.
Wildlife crossings are becoming increasingly common in Canada and the United States. Recognizable wildlife crossings are found in Banff National Park in Alberta, where vegetated overpasses provide safe passage over the Trans-Canada Highway for bears, moose, deer, wolves, elk, and many other species. In the United States, thousands of wildlife crossings have been built in the past 30 years, including culverts, bridges, and overpasses. These have been used to protect Mountain Goats in Montana, Spotted Salamanders in Massachusetts, Bighorn Sheep in Colorado, Desert Tortoises in California, and endangered Florida Panthers in Florida
Right after this I am posting some of the most beautiful animal crossings in the world. I hope you hit my page and check it out.

How do you become Vegan?
There is no special formula. All you need is yourself. Blocked out by gates, walls, factories and distance; we have been left to fabricate an image of animals lives that sits well with our conscious. Watching the reality of these animals will open up a door that we have been denied entry for so long. As humans, we avoid situations that make us uncomfortable and guilty. But, it is only when we meet those emotions face to face that true metamorphic changes occur. In a world where we continuously reflect on the past to avoid making future mistakes, let this not be another chapter in the textbook. It's no longer an opinion, factory farming is killing our planet and everything on it due to toxins and emissions that are a leading contributing factor in climate change. This is, undoubtedly a modern-day holocaust of another species. Via @sophiamiacova
After nearly running us down in his tractor this beef farmer was riddled guilt for dropping his cows off at this slaughterhouse. It's this carnist conditioning that can make good people do bad things... full video in Joey's Insta bio. #bevegan
9/10/17 4:00 a.m. at the largest pig factory farm (Animal Hell 😔) in the nation doing some late night open rescue training ON SITE IN SPITE of @smithfieldbrand ! Led by warriors like @dxe_wayne , @101darwins , and many others who rescued/helped rescue #protectlily from there! And everyone else who is doing their part whatever that may be to help end the horror show!!! (Guess we elevated the terrorist threat level because we're so violent?? 🤷♂️)
'Broiler' chickens are artificially hatched, fattened up and slaughtered as 42-day-old babies.
Chickens bred for meat are forced to grow 65 times faster than their bodies normally would, and the industry continually seeks to increase their growth rate.
They are housed in giant, overcrowded sheds, where they are packed in by the thousands and forced to stand and sit on filthy, manure-laden flooring. "Free range" is a meaningless term, since almost all chickens raised for meat are uncaged, just packed into overcrowded sheds.
Heart failure afflicts these chickens and is attributed to genetic manipulation, but this figure only covers birds within their first 42 days of life. Their baby hearts cannot keep up with their adult-sized bodies.
Their legs are unable to support their unnaturally large bodies and it's common to see debilitated chickens, even some with broken limbs.
Chickens who survive the horrific conditions are transported to the slaughterhouse.
Workers rush through the sheds, grabbing multiple birds by their legs and slinging them into crates for transport. Every year, tens of millions suffer broken wings and legs from the rough handling, and some hemorrhage to death. The journey to the slaughterhouse may be a long journey, but chickens are given no food or water and are shipped through all weather conditions.
After this nightmarish journey, the bewildered chickens are dumped out of the crates, and workers violently grab them and force their legs into shackles so that they are hanging upside-down, breaking many birds’ legs in the process.
The terrified animals struggle to escape, often defecating and vomiting on the workers.
Once in the shackles, the upside-down birds are dragged through an electrified water bath meant to paralyze them, not render them unconscious. This means that chickens are still completely conscious when their throats are cut.
After the blade cuts their necks, blood slowly drains from the dying birds. But many birds flap about and miss the blade. These birds may have their throats slit by the “backup cutter,” but workers testify that it’s impossible for them to catch all the birds who miss the blade. Millions of chickens
I hate running but the after-glow and the serotonin boost are PRICELESS.
