Why are animals treated as lesser beings? Why are certain animals more important? What gave us the right to manipulate them for entertainment,clothes,food etc.
There is no reason. People are just raised to be speciesist. #speciesism describes exactly what I said. How humans think they are more superior beings and how they treat some animals,like dogs,like they are more important than something like a pig.
Whether an animal is big or small,wild or domestic,they all have the right to live. Animals should be treated as well. They may not be the same,but they're equal. ~
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
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. 🌱
In honour of the all-day @torontopigsave vigil that's happening today, I'd like to share with you these *vegan* BLTs (made by the wonderful @theveganabler) that @generation_vegan and I had at the August 31st weekly pig vigil. Now, I haven't had bacon in at least over 3 years, but my goodness did this ever taste and feel like how I remember "good quality" (quotations because all "food" derived from animals is garbage for you, the suffering animals, and the environment) bacon does. It was actually so eerily similar to meat that it made me feel morally apprehensive eating it - if that makes sense?! 🤔 (#justveganthings#veganaf ).
A n y w a y, the point is: there is NO reason good enough not to go vegan in this day and age. "BUT BACON THO" no longer cuts it, especially when vegan bacon like this (from @theveganartisan) tastes the same, is better for you, and doesn't cause needless pain, suffering, and death to sweet little pigs! 🐷🐖❤
Le Cube of Truth est un événement créé par @anonymousforthevoiceless où un groupe de personnes révèle la réalité des conditions d'élevage et d'abattage des animaux. À chaque fois, des dizaines de passants prennent des photos, s'arrêtent pour s'informer et repartent avec assez de motivation pour créer un monde meilleur. ✌️
👉 Il y a environ un Cube organisé à chaque 2 semaines à Montréal. Look it up on Facebook!
👉 Si tu n'es pas encore végane, come say hi! On va répondre à tes questions et t'aider à adopter un meilleur mode de vie pour toi, les animaux et la planète. Il y a même parfois des échantillons de bouffe végane distribués par @herbivoresmtl!
👉 Si tu es végane et aimerais t'impliquer davantage, c'est l'événement parfait pour ça. Au passage, même si tu n'es pas à l'aise de parler avec les gens, tu peux juste rester dans le Cube et observer comment ça se passe! Ta présence sera toujours appréciée.
They both deserve love, care, respect and freedom. We will not be a civilized species until we honor equal rights for all animals, human and nonhuman. Keep advocating. Keep fighting. Our choices shape the future. Make the change. Be the change. Spread the change.
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?
ON PLANET EARTH...
WE FEED OVER 1.2 BILLION TONNES OF GRAIN TO LIVESTOCK EVERY YEAR. WE MURDER MORE THAN 60 BILLION LAND ANIMALS AND OVER 1.5 TRILLION SEA ANIMALS EVERY YEAR FOR FOOD. EVERY YEAR 800 MILLION PEOPLE SUFFER OF MALNOURISHMENT AND 8 MILLION OF THOSE PEOPLE DIE AS A RESULT - MOSTLY CHILDREN. WE HAVE BEEN INDOCTRINATED TO BELIEVE THAT AS AN INDIVIDUAL WE CANNOT SOLVE WORLD HUNGER AND NEED TO EAT ANIMAL FLESH TO LIVE HAPPY, HEALTHY LIVES. BY CHOOSING TO BE VEGAN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CHOICE WILL CHANGE THE WORLD. BECOME VEGAN FOR THE PEOPLE, FOR THE ANIMALS, FOR OUR PLANET, FOR YOUR HEALTH AND FOR OUR FUTURE!
Had some awesome convos yesterday at the #cubeoftruth and exchanged some awesome vibes 🌈💗 Some people are so open minded and are ready to receive the information that will change lives and ultimately change the world 🌏 thank you to anyone who stopped to chat and view our demonstration 🙏

☄ Do you know what is frustrating? Listening to the old, "well, everyone makes their own choices" about who to eat. Guess what? ☄ No. No you did not make that choice. Not one person I encounter on this planet would literally say, "Yes! A fantastic idea - let's create concentration camps and murder houses for the most gentle and vulnerable non human animals on this planet! Hooray! Let's enslave and mutilate them on an obscenely mind blowing scale, slit their throats, let them bleed out, throw away their heads, chop them up into a million pieces and eat their body parts, yum! Oh, terrific - I totally think it's a great idea to drink the stolen breast milk of grieving mothers and kill the babies and eat them! Fantastic! Grind up the baby animals that don't produce eggs, forget about them!" ☄ No. No you did not make that choice. You have been indoctrinated from day one by every faction of your society to accept this as being right. Paid for by the greedy industries themselves. ☄ It is time for justice. It is time for compassion. It is time for veganism. And until that day comes, expect us. See you on the streets. ✊
Ayer estuvimos fuera del parque Kabah con el "Cubo de la Verdad". Yo y mi esposo solo pudimos estar poco tiempo (por cuestión de chamba), afortunadamente, hay más compañeros activistas que estuvieron al pie del cañón desde el principio.
Como veganos, es importante ser activos y dar a conocer lo que les pasa a nuestros compañeros, los animales no humanos. Yo sólo pienso y me pongo en su lugar, la desesperación que han de sentir porque cada minuto que pasa millones de ellos son torturados y asesinados y sé que si ellos pudieran, destinarían cada segundo de sus vidas para exponer su realidad, así es que, cada oportunidad que tengan para ser su voz, aprovéchenla!, ayúdenlos!. Si no somos nosotros, quién?!, si no es ahora, cuándo?!. Fotos: Jessica Castro
"Each and every animal on Earth has as much right to be here as you and me." *
"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty." -Albert Einstein *
"We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace." -Albert Schweitzer *
"But for the sake of some little mouthful of flesh we deprive a soul of the sun and light, and of that proportion of life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy." -Plutarch
All animals deserve to live, happily and freely, just like you and I. They cannot speak our language, so I will speak for them. Until every cage is free. Embrace compassion, and join me in this revolution. Open your hearts and take the covers off from your eyes.
