She begged me not to take her babies away so we could eat them for dinner.
I said "OK", & served vegetables instead.
If that makes me extreme, that's ok with me. Personally, I think buying dead bodies is extreme. But I don't creep into your DMs to let you know that, do I? I don't tell you that you're overwhelming entitlement to take things that aren't yours "because it tastes good" is selfish & destroying our planet.
We all have the ability to decide on what's important to us. If one person chooses peace & love, while the other chooses torture & dearth, who is extreme? ✌🏼🌍
CARE’s 3rd horse is finalized, with the beautiful horse given a name and home forever. Amazing work by all the CARE staff! You are all rockstars 😎❤️
On September 13th, 11 days after the initial report, we successfully rescued and transferred the horse to Seoul. The horse was finally free, and was given a name for the first time in his life; Beckham. We wish that when he is fully recovered, he will be able to run like the famous soccer player, David Beckham. But for now, our four-legged Beckham will be transferred to a temporary shelter in Gyeonggi-do and receive further diagnosis and proper veterinary treatment. He may limp for a while yet, but he no longer has to pull that dreadful steel carriage anymore.

NEW @COMPASSION_OVER_KILLING HOTLINE EMPOWERS FACTORY FARM WHISTLEBLOWERS:
Compassion Over Killing has launched a new multi-state, multi-language campaign offering factory farm and slaughterhouse whistleblowers a safe and secure hotline to report animal cruelty, workers’ rights abuses, food safety risks, and environmental violations. Billboards featuring the confidential hotline — 1-800-65-FARM-TIPS — have already reached more than 400,000 people in top poultry-producing states Arkansas and Georgia, with additional locations planned in North Carolina. Online reports can also be submitted at FarmTips.org. “Farm workers may be hesitant to report violations, including animal abuse, to their employers for fear of losing their jobs. That’s why Compassion Over Killing is offering a safe and anonymous resource for these concerned whistleblowers,” says COK Executive Director @EricaMeier6.

Tend to stay away from Facebook arguments but this was too ridiculous to turn a blind eye to. Alex posted a pic on his FB of a bag of male chicks about to go into a grinder to be ground alive as they are not useful to the egg industry. This guy was posting purposefully antagonistic comments such as 'looks like the beginning of chicken nuggets' and said that vegans have double standards if they don't get angry about a carnivore killing another animal for food on TV. He also said that we need meat and dairy for protein. He said him and Alex should catch up for Steak or Veal. I felt inclined to reply and share the truth. Just one example of the ignorance and hostility I see exhibited towards vegans daily on Facebook. Alex posts a lot of posts showing the reality of the meat and dairy industry. On most posts he is attacked. Thankful for beautiful people like Alex ☺️ #meatismurder#plantbased#plantbaseddiet#vegan#savetheanimals#crueltyfree#love#peace#saveourplanet#globalwarming#animalagriculture#meatindustry#dairyisscary#vegangirl#vegansofig#veganuk
Unfortunately, the harsh reality is the majority of animals we eat are reared in terrible conditions, optimised to maximise the efficiency of meat production for us, the consumers.
You may try to turn a blind eye but this is happening day in and day out. One thing you can do to help these animals is to stop eating so much meat. What we buy is a vote for the kind of world we want to live in.

Yes, I fucking love this argument. Seems that Carnists forget the animals they eat are HERBIVORES (meaning they only eat plants). And then they proceed to ask, "But if a lion can eat animals why can't I?!?" 😩😂 #GOVEGAN
@Regrann from @veganista_e - If you claim that people should not be judged for eating or wearing animal products then you are simultaneously making the judgment that an animal’s entire lifetime of experiences is worth even less than satisfying some trivial, momentary taste sensation or fashion statement. This judgment is based on an entrenched prejudice against a handful of species that we just so happen to want to exploit and kill for food and clothing. There is no personal, neutral or morally relative position on eating animal products. If animals matter, then we don’t violate their right to life and liberty when we can so easily avoid it, such as in the case of replacing animal products with alternatives. And since 99% of the animals exploited by humans are those raised for food products we have no biological need to eat, this matters a great deal. (Free from harm) #Repost @twoens

"With regard to deforestation, the World Bank has found that animal agriculture is responsible for roughly 90% of the razing of the Brazilian Amazon. Lastly, but likely most critically, animal agriculture is the number one consumer of fresh water by a significant margin. Animal agriculture consumes on average 55 trillion gallons of water annually—more than 520 times the water used in hydraulic fracturing.  On a micro level, it takes roughly 5,000 gallons of water to produce 1lb. of beef." --A Leading Cause of Everything: One Industry That Is Destroying Our Planet and Our Ability to Thrive on It #animalagriculture#climatechange#environment#awareness#deforestation#earth#planethome#crueltyfree

I was only a kid when doctors sent my grandmother home in a wheelchair to die at age 65. Diagnosed with end-stage heart disease, she had already had so many bypass operations the surgeons essentially ran out of plumbing—the scarring from each open-heart surgery had made the next more difficult until they finally ran out of options. Confined to a wheelchair with crushing chest pain, her doctors told her there was nothing else they could do. I think what sparks many kids to want to become doctors when they grow up is watching a beloved relative become ill or even die. For me, it was watching my grandma get better.
Soon after she was discharged, a segment aired on 60 Minutes about Nathan Pritikin. He had been gaining a reputation for reversing terminal heart disease and had just opened a new center, a live-in program where everyone was placed on a plant-based diet and then started on a graded exercise regimen. My grandmother somehow made the trek to become one of its first patients. They wheeled her in, and she walked out. Later featured in Pritikin’s biography Pritikin: The Man Who Healed America’s Heart, she was described as one of the “death’s door people”:
“Frances Greger…arrived in Santa Barbara at one of Pritikin’s early sessions in a wheelchair. Mrs. Greger had heart disease, angina, and claudication; her condition was so bad she could no longer walk without great pain in her chest and legs. Within three weeks, though, she was not only out of her wheelchair but was walking ten miles a day.”
At that time, reversing heart disease didn’t even seem possible. Drugs were given to try to slow the progression, and surgery was performed to circumvent clogged arteries to try to relieve symptoms (literally bypassing the problem), but the disease was expected to worsen until you died. Today, we know that as soon as we stop eating an artery-clogging diet, our bodies may start healing themselves, in many cases opening up arteries without drugs or surgery. -Dr. Greger of @nutrition_facts_org #plantbased#vegan#veganfood#nutrition#climatechange#progressive#veganism#worldpeace#legalizeit#veteran#fitness#berniesanders#feelthebern
Saw this at the @nativefoodscafe in Costa Mesa, California. It truly, truly is. I mean, think about it: Not harming innocent sentient beings AND helping the planet AND helping the people AND helping your own health just by eating plants that sprouted from the ground of our own planet Earth?! ✨✨✨✨#GOVEGAN
MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
IT BEGINS AND ENDS WITH US!! 🌿🐟🐷🌲🌍 (📸 @lighttheway__ ) "Being #vegan is not simply a choice we make based on kindness or sympathy towards nonhuman animals, it's an ethical position opposing the property status of all sentient beings and respecting their right not to exist solely as a source of use.
While it can be less confronting to talk about the benefits of veganism, like environmental and health benefits we must never fail to encourage non-vegans to examine the morality of their non-vegan practices.
We owe it to #animals and our planet to live vegan, and we owe it to them to #educate others about why it's imperative that we live vegan.
Loving/respecting animals doesn't mean not eating them, loving animals/respecting animals means not exploiting them in any way.
#Animalagriculture is the leading cause of #climatechange and rainforest #deforestation , and it is responsible for the majority of species #extinction , as well as nearly half of the US' #water consumption.
Livestock covers 45% of the land on this planet, half of the world is now covered with animals harvested for our consumption.
More than 80% of Amazon #Rainforest destruction is due to the animal #agriculture industry. Every minute that passes, 36 football fields of the Amazon is deforested to make room for cattle. The consequences of this extend further than just tearing down trees: Innumerable unrelated plant species are lost, most of them vital to the world’s oxygen supply.
I didn't really have the opportunity to announce yesterday, but yesterday, September 22, 2017, marked a year of me being #VEGAN . I am so proud of myself and I'm so glad I made this decision a year ago, the best decision of my life. I was awakened, I was enlightened, I found something I was passionate about and wanted to learn more about exponentially. I have to thank Sorsha Morava for transitioning me and opening my eyes. She's very disliked in the Youtube Vegan community, but I owe her everything. I cannot wait for the rest of my Vegan life. #GOVEGAN
#WhatVegansEat had this for dinner tonight from @nativefoodscafe . One Big Ol Burger with cashew cheese, #Vegan ranch, barbecue sauce, crispy shallots, tempeh bacon, and lettuce. It came with a side salad (that I'm eating as I write this) that comes with, I believe, a lemon vinaigrette dressing? I don't know lol but it dank. As an appetizer, I also bought their crispy buffalo "wings", and lil fun fact about me: Buffalo sauce IS MY SHIT !!! 😩
Their precious lives are here with us. Our role of humanity has always been and is, to love, care for & protect the innocent. Nothing less will do. We need less harm and more protectors. 💚 @Regrann from @happiness4all - We need more kindness
Rp from @thirdeyenavigator #desertification is a huge problem and it's getting worse, but fortunately we are finding solutions and applying them, such as this one and going vegan🍏 1/3 of earths land is desert. Almost half of the words land (45%) is dedicated to animal agriculture🐄including the massive fields of crops for them to eat🌽 #animalagriculture Is the leading cause of desertification🥀 and Deforestation🌲 therefore causing it to be the leading cause of habitat loss and species extinction🐠🐆🦏🦍🐘🐢🐝🐞 Desertification follows right after #deforestation because the soil isn't blocked by leaves from the sun anymore so it dries up fast. Animal agriculture is responsible for 91% of the #amazonrainforest destruction🌳🔥 Even "sustainable meet" such as grass fed beef is less sustainable because if everybody in the US switched to grass fed it would require 3.7 billion acres of land when the country only has 1.9 billion😬 #vegans use 1/18 the amount of land #omnivores do. This is because on a 1 and 1/2 acres, you can produce 37,000 pounds of vegetables🥕🍅🥔 but only 375 pounds of meat🍔🍖🥓 Please realize what you have on your plate has a bigger effect on this planet then most people think🌎 #govegan#savetheplanet#wholefoodsplantbaseddiet#selfdicipline#theawakeningmovement
So for the past 2 months I haven't been able to post frequently due to my iPhone breaking. Well I have great news; I GOT THE NEW IPHONE 8. So I'm baaackkk, ready to annoy the shit out of Carnists ((:::
In celebration, here are some #Vegan foods I enjoyed over the past 2 months. #WhatVegansEat
Super stoked to bring you episode 2 of the Woke Stutters podcast. In this episode I have an unedited raw talk with former undercover investigator and founder of @livegan.ca @kevinslahey. Tune in now on iTunes, Overcast or Stitcher.
We can do much better than this. This is what were here to stop. You can help by simply going vegan. That easy. @Regrann from @rawtruth_ - Unbelievable. Greedy bastards are tearing these trees down to create more room for cattle. Let that sink in. It's sad how most people will view this as a normal thing to do.😐

We CAN NOT rely on our government to tackle climate change when we're the only country in the world who's political leaders deny that it's even an issue. Animal Agriculture is one of the leading causes of climate change, says the science! It is the reason Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria were as destructive as they were. Our daily food choices DO make an impact and the sooner we connect the dots and adopt a vegan lifestyle, the sooner we'll be able to save our planet. Ask yourself what condition do you want the planet to be in for your children? Watch COWSPIRACY #GoVegan ♥️🌱#climatechangeisreal#animalagriculture#leadingcause#animalcruelty#deforestation#freshwateruse#oceanacidification#speciesextinction#worldhunger @Regrann from @leonardodicaprio - #Regram#RG @time: "Leonardo DiCaprio (@leonardodicaprio) stopped by the Yale Climate Conference in New Haven, appearing onstage for a discussion with former Secretary of State John Kerry about climate change. The actor, environmentalist and 'Before the Flood' producer drew a substantial crowd of 2,500, making pointed statements about the Trump administration's stance on and recalling his attempt to sway the then-President-Elect when he visited Trump Tower in December. "We should not have people in office who do not believe in facts and truths and modern science that are able to manipulate and risk the entire future of this entire generation," DiCaprio said. "We are at that turning point right now, and we are going to look back at this point in history, and frankly this administration, and certain people are going to be vilified for not taking action. They really are. And it's up to this generation, it's up to all of you to get involved and make a difference." Video source: Yale University"

If i don't eat a lunch or dinner, i know my emotions and body start to get irritated.
Try grasping the idea, just the idea that right now you don't have food to eat.
Now imagine the anger you feel when you realise that there is enough food on this earth to feed 10,000,000,000 (10 billion) people.
And there are only 7 billion people on this earth.
Now try grasping the idea that every 4 seconds a person, a child is dying of hunger related ilnesses. Only because we would rather feed the animals that we want to kill so we can eat their flesh.
Tell me you dont care. Just tell me you dont see the injustice.
Yes. It has to do with poverty. But COME ON. as if you don't put 2 and 2 together and see that the money we spend literally paying for the destruction of people and the 1 earth we have.
Right now 781,870,332 people are obese.
Look at the facts - #AnimalAgriculture is killing you, your family and your land. And guess what? Noone wants you to know, because its easier to exploit those who don't even have a sliver of knowledge of their rights.
Cherry on top is that they get to make money off our illnesses and diseases too.
You see, heart disease is the no.1 killer. And I don't think i have to tell you the reasons humans even get it.
Now imagine, if you had the potential to get woke, level up and make that damn decision that you are not going to be a part of this.
If you are #against#RACISM - GO VEGAN
If you are against #SEXISM - GO VEGAN
If you are against #SLAVERY - GO VEGAN
If you are against #HOMOPHOBIA - GO VEGAN
If you are against #INEQUALITY - GO VEGAN
If you are against #CORRUPTION - GO VEGAN
If you are against #VIOLENCE - GO VEGAN
If you are against #HYPOCRICY - GO VEGAN
You might say that I sound like an angry person; what the hell does racism have to do with eating animals ? - well, it has everything to do with it. How dare we even imagine that we are better than someone else?
Martin Luther King Jr said - "#Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere"
And once you decide that there IS NO excuse for any of the above, then you have to live a #vegan life. Because the world needs to #change and it has to start from ourselves.
Wagamama’s are set to launch their first full vegan and vegetarian menu!
While being known in the vegan community for being reasonably accesible to vegans, unfortunately, we’ve always had to use a confusing allergen menu or requesting alterations to dishes.
