The first picture was taken last year, the first time I hugged a cow and the first of many times I hugged this cow, Molly. The second picture was the last time I saw her.
Molly passed last week, aged 24, an age cows rarely get to see. Molly was curious, gentle and she loved suckling on your hand (it doesn’t hurt, honest!). Most of her life was spent at Brook Farm Animal Sanctuary where she lived loved and free. 💛
The dairy industry would have used up and discarded Molly over a decade ago, to them cows are property. After taking away their babies year after year so that human s can drink the milk they make for their calves. Rarely even seeing the outdoors and space that we’re led to believe they do. After they become weak and don’t produce enough milk to be profitable, they are sent to slaughter most no older than 5. We do not need cows milk to live happy and healthy, please don’t condemn these beautiful animals to a life of suffering. There are so many alternatives to dairy and meat! .
As for Molly, she will live on in the hearts of all who met her and she will be deeply missed. 💛🐮😔
This past Saturday, after our anti Canada Goose demo at Due West we decided to do an impromptu disruption after one of us noticed this grotesque display of coyote skin in this textile store’s window, King Textiles.
Smiling when confronted for cruelty is a normal thing we encounter. It can also be a result of the fact that the law is in their favour. THAT needs to change.
Pet abusers get arrested but when selling the remains of abused and murdered animals is perfectly legal...
These people sell dog skins that were trapped and lived their last days in agonizing pain, followed by them being skinned alive and murdered. Just so their skin gets sold for $70 and their tails sold for $20. Why? Because people like to wear dead animals. ▫️
Photos credit Jenny Henry “We disrupted a store on the weekend that was selling coyote fur as fabric. The store owner was livid when we entered his store.
He called the police, and thought he was done with us. But later that day, animal activists posted dozens of reviews on the store's Facebook page explaining that animal fur is not fabric, and selling it is barbaric and cruel. Yesterday, it was confirmed that the animal skin has been removed! ✊
Thank you activists for being a voice for the animals!!”
Please call 618-664-6200.
Please be polite when you get through .
I’ve tried numerous times and it kept ringing but eventually a lady picked up.
She was very polite.
I told her about my concern and she said that if he has a complaint he can file it with the prison but she knows there are vegan options at the buffet ...
Except I said he is in solitary. She couldn’t comment on that...
I asked to speak with Tom Werlich and she said it’s like me asking to speak with the president 😡
I’m supposed to send him a letter... I really hope the more of us call, they will do something about his situation . I just hope it won’t make it worse for him.. ... #walterbond
"Without you these industries don't exist." - @joey_carbstrong I would like to emphasize Joey's point. If there is demand for animal products then there will always be a need to kill animals. But, it can all be easily changed by you taking the first step. If you start by buying only plant based foods then businesses that cause pain and suffering to animals would cease to exist. Eventually. But, it all starts with you. Each and every one of us has the power to change the world. Everything starts as a dream and then what we believe we do. And what we do manifests from our dream. I want my reality to be a cruel free one. I can't expect everyone to agree with me and I don't wish to force people to. But I will make sure everyone knows what they're supporting. To it's fullest extent. The health, the ethical, the environmental factors should all be available to someone who wants to eat animal products. I want people who suffer from their diet to know that they can reverse it and make themselves healthier by going on a plant based diet. This movement I believe is one that will change the world. We now have to put others before ourselves to care about others health. This "generation" is not a confused one. It's aware of its consequences, and it cares about what we put into our bodies. This is a new era. - Michelle cutler. #vegan#animalrights#joeycarbstrong#anonymous#anonymousforthevoiceless#ethics#humane#plantbased#thanksgiving#health

Well it’s official I’ve joined the 30s club! I had a fabulous day thanks to my amazing family and friends!!! To be completely honest I never really envisioned myself making it to 30 but I’m so grateful I did and I’m even more grateful to have the people in my life that I currently do. 29 was a pretty insane year!I gave birth to my son Kai, battled postpartum depression and became a badass vegan activist😜I have no doubt that 30 is going to be great because I’ve got everything I need and I’ve never felt better! Ps this vegan peanut butter fudge was DELICIOUS!!! Thanks @dougmcnish
Thank you to this man for being by my side for almost all of my 20’s. we celebrated my 22 birthday together , as friends and today we celebrated my 30th,as husband and wife with our almost 1 year old son!!! I was too busy celebrating to think about getting a picture of the three of us together😬This year has definitely been our most challenging but it has also been the most rewarding!I’m so lucky to have you in my life and I can’t wait to do great things together!
I am vegan.
If I say cheese or ice cream or fish filet, or ANYTHING else, I mean I’m having it in Vegan version.
I don’t randomly eat animals or their by-products because I have nothing better to do. If I don’t say Vegan ice cream or vegan this or Vegan that, try not to have a mini heart attack and blast me and point fingers.
That finger, you should turn on yourself and ask yourself WHY.
WHY do you continue to kill innocent sentient beings, for absolutely no reason?
You’re not doing it for survival. You’re doing it because you’re selfish. Yes, we were all brainwashed but now you know the truth...
You still choose to eat the remains of tortured animals because you’re too lazy to say NO MORE. I’m better than this. I’m aware of the abuse, death and destruction I’m causing, it’s time for me to get my shit together and make a change.
I’m better than this. It’s time to wipe the blood off of my hands and choose kindness and compassion. Time to be a responsible, grateful, respectful, ethical, knowledgeable, moral citizen of this Planet and EARN my right to be here.
It’s time to stop being a parasite and destroy everything I touch because I like to cover my eyes and stay comfortable and because it’s more socially acceptable.
It’s time to make a change. That time is NOW.
This planet is dying, animals are dying, humans are dying.
And I have the power to do something about it.
WAKE UP. GO VEGAN! 🌱
79 people went away seriously considering veganism on this day. Great team effort. Do your bit for the voiceless victims of animal agriculture and volunteer at a Cube of Truth near you. www.cubeoftruth.com
Cube of Truth in Amsterdam yesterday! We had to play hide and seek with the rain but we won't let anything stop us and had a great action despite bad weather and some changes location wise! ✊️💚 The activism scene is growing and @justmylife.s is now the new organizer of Cube of Truth Amsterdam and we will have one popping up in Groningen on December 9th!
Times are changing 🐾🐥
