Afgelopen vrijdagavond tijdens onze eerste koopavondeditie in Eindhoven! We waren met een kleiner clubje dan anders, maar dat mocht ons niet deren. Wat fijn is aan de avond, is dat de beelden zo vele malen beter gezien kunnen worden. Meerdere mensen gaven aan geen of minder vlees te willen eten, goed nieuws dus!
ENG: fridaynight we had our first shopping night edition in Eindhoven. Though we weren't with as many people this time, we still got enough attention. The footage is so clear to watch in the evening! More and more people are saying they want to eat no or less meat, so that's great news!
✊🐔💪PREMIER ANNIVERSAIRE ☘️✨🎉 THE EARTHLINGS EXPERIENCE - TOURS 🚨🐖🐥🍃 ☘️ Voilà maintenant 1 an que le groupe de citoyen-nes des Earthlings Experience - Tours (originaire de Londres) vient poser ses pancartes et PC dans les rues de la ville pour échanger, débattre avec les Tourangelles-eaux.
La première EE a été lancée le 18 NOVEMBRE 2016 avec 2 personnes. 🐖Depuis, chaque semaine, nous sommes présent-e-s et de plus en plus nombreux-ses pour sensibiliser et informer sur le sort que la société spéciste réserve aux autres animaux dans tout type d’exploitation animale (vêtements, divertissement, nourriture). Nous sommes en quelque sorte leur voix, nous sommes là, hors contexte, sans nom, avec des images et des informations pour amener le-la consommateur-trice à réfléchir sur ses actes quotidiens et donner des pistes de réflexions ou des alternatives concrètes la souffrance animale.
Nous considérons qu’un animal est un être vivant, un individu ayant sa propre personnalité capable de ressentir les émotions.
Vérités si simples et pourtant oubliées ou refoulées et nous sommes là, sans bannière associative, dire qu’il n’y a pas un cœur pour les animaux de compagnie comme le chien et le chat et un autre cœur pour les animaux qu’on tue et mange comme le cochon ou la poule.
🎉Depuis, ce sont plus de 70 Earthlings qui s’enchainent avec des militant-e-s motivé-e-s.
Depuis, 4 autres villes de la région ont rejoint le mouvement.
Et ce n’est qu’un début ! 🐞Nous avons aussi créé un évènement en première mondiale, les Earthlings Experience – édition 24h non stop, qui comme son nom l’indique, l’équipe des EE se tient à la disposition des citoyen-nes pendant 24h non stop pour sensibiliser, répondre aux questions, et porter la voix des animaux. 🦁Si vous aussi vous voulez faire quelque chose de simple pour les animaux et souhaitez faire partie de l’aventure EE, n’hésitez pas à nous contacter sur la page Facebook, prendre un PC ou/et une pancarte et passer un peu de temps dans la rue. Plus nous sommes nombreux-ses et uni-e-s , plus nous avancerons pour les Animaux.

Throwback to @theearthlingsexperience activism days. -
One key quote which played an important role in me looking more into veganism was when I watched the @therealgaryyourofsky speech on YouTube, and as he was about to show some footage from slaughter houses, he said something along the lines of “you can look away if you want as you may find it hard to watch, but if you do, ask yourself if it’s not good enough for your eyes, why is it good enough for your stomach?”
This is very important as many people wouldn’t be able to watch the animals they eat being killed let alone be able to kill them themselves, so we pay others to do the hard work for us. -
You can watch the speech on YouTube just follow the link on @therealgaryyourofsky ig, and I also recommend watching @cowspiracy , @wthfilm , @foodmatters , @landofhopeandgloryfilm , and @jamesaspey speech also on YouTube , and if you have any questions drop me a DM and I’ll be happy to help. -
Today at Earthlings, this sensitive lovely soul took part in the @animalequality iAnimal Virtual Reality. She and her mom are already vegan and it gave us hope that things are changing ❤️ #earthlingsexperience#theearthlingsexperience

It's not "your meat", it was never given to you. This passerby was very receptive to discussing the issues which made it all the more frustrating to hear him give the excuse of "having" to eat "his" meat. Hopefully he will think back on this. #outreach#theearthlingsexperience#earthlings#vegan#veganism#jesuschristoflatterdaysaints#mormon#religion#Christianity#mcdonalds#thesavemovement ✅Watch: 📌Land Of Hope and Glory 📌 Earthlings 📌 Cowspiracy 📌 WTH 📌 Carnage 📌 Vegucated 📌 Blackfish 📌 The Cove 📌 The Ghosts In Our Machine 📌 Speciesism: The Movie 📌 Behind The Mask 📌 Life According To Ohad 📌 Okja ✅ YouTube: 📌 The Greatest Speech You'll Ever Hear - Gary Yourofsky 📌 This Speech Is Your Wake Up Call - James Aspey 📌 Earthling Ed 📌 Bite Size Vegan 📌 Joey Carbstrong ✅ Read: 📌 From Dusk Til Dawn - Keith Mann 📌 Always Looking Forward - Walter Bond 📌
I think that it's detrimental to allow yourself to become blind to what really happens. Being able to make the connection between your pet dog and the pork you'll eat tonight is vital. This is something that I very strongly stand by. You see when you eat an animal e.g. A pigs ribs, on the other hand, you'd would never even think about eating dog ribs would you? This is called being speciesist ( the act of favouring one species over another ) in this case your favouring the dog over the poor pig who is worthy of life just like you and your dog are.
In conclusion: Please begin to see the connection, they're both animals, so why do we treat them so differently? It literally doesn't have to be this way 😥💕 #vegan#veganism#veganuk#veganpower#veganfortheanimals#veganlifestyle#theearthlingsexperience
@katevmaiden just sent me this ss from someone who passed our #TheEarthlingsExperience demo a year ago and has been vegan since! we spent hours writing these 'please go vegan' notes because I forgot to include it when I designed them (sorry 😅😅) but fuck me, did it pay off!
this goes to show that a group of friends can slowly change the world and we must never stop trying! sometimes when you're standing in the cold holding a laptop, trying to open people's hearts to animal suffering but so many pass you by without a word, you may feel sad inside - but know that someone somewhere some day will listen and it's so worth waiting for this incredible moment.
please be active wherever you are, please try your best to inspire people to go vegan, in whatever (positive) way you choose to do it. it's so important that we never stop trying because we have no time to waste as the biggest atrocity the world has seen is happening right now in front of us 💜🌱💪
I'm going to discuss the life expectancy of animals vs when they're killed for our dinner.
Cattle - cows can actually live up to an astonishing 22 years of age. But because of us, they're life is shortened to just 16 weeks.
Chickens - a chicken has the capacity to live up to 8 years. Whereas the harsh reality for these beautiful birds is that they'll be killed at 8 weeks of age.
Ducks - these creatures can live up to 10 years. But this is reality, so they only live up to 42 days at the most.
Turkeys - surprisingly a turkey can live up to 15 years. More realistically they're living for 5 months, and during those 5 months they'd be fattening then up to alter the taste. Why?? Lambs - they can live a happy life of up to 14 years. However they're they're getting slaughtered, it's decreased to only 8 weeks.
Pigs - living up to 20 years of age is the normal life span for a pig. Where as in reality they're separated at 3 months to be fattened, then they'll be killed. Pigs that are intended for your beloved bacon are kept up to 1 year in order to be fattened up to "improve the taste of the bacon"
In conclusion: why do we have to shorten what nature has intended?
We have more than enough food for our lives in the form of fresh fruit and veg. So why do we take the lives of others for our food? 🐄🌱 #vegan#veganactivism#veganactivist#theearthlingsexperience#veganism
Before I turned vegan, I was a vegetarian. But the thing was, it wasn't really what my body wanted nor needed. I wasn't at all interested in cooking, therefore would eat unhealthily. Although I still enjoyed allot of healthy things, it was mainly unhealthy. I knew that I could've done better and stopped eating so meany eggs an dairy products. Looking back now, I felt bloated consequently, left with a lack of energy. I didn't really suspect anything because it slowly became the norm, therefore I was left completely unaware of how being vegan could really help me. 🌱🐄 #vegan#theearthlingsexperience#veganactivist
I feel as if social experiments are a crucial part of spreading awareness about animal abuse. They're very straightforward, therefore trigger emotion due to the frightening statistics.
A couple nights ago, I began to think about how I could create my own social experiment all about animal abuse. ( This would be on YouTube video adverts, therefore I could reach as meany people as I possibly can.) •What would I actually do in the advert? I'll be placed in the "shoes" of every single animal that gets abused. I'd achieve this by getting exactly the same treatment that some animals get every, single, day. • What would I wear? I'd have a plain white dress to help symbolise purity. Id also have no shoes, or makeup ( because I don't wear it ) • What righting techniques would you use and why? Emotive language - to evoke strong negative emotions.
Rhetorical questions -
To leave the audience speechless.
statistics - these help to put the cruel reality of animals into perspective. •What would people take from this? In this short advert, I'd like people to realise the abuse that goes on all around them. Consequently changing their actions from wrong, to right. •The slogan will be " if you spot the abuse, stop the abuse" • finally, 50% of the proceeds will go towards any medical bills of any abused animals that need surgery. Where as the other 50% will go to help @earthlinged who if you don't already know is pretty much living out my dream. He travels around and talks openly about vegan activism, animal abuse, and the harsh reality of uk farming then protests against animal abuse. ☺🐄 #vegan#veganactivist#veganism#veganuk#theearthlingsexperience
