I’m so sorry, even though I could not save you, I was here to alleviate your suffering even if only the slightest bit. These few seconds I got with you were precious to me and I will carry this memory in my heart. You were so beautiful and innocent and loved and your life mattered. I love you, little angel.🖤

Hoy documentamos y fuimos testigos en la granja Tottingworth, al sur de Reino Unido, y vimos cerditos con no más de 8 meses (¡sólo eran bebés!), ovejas y vacas aterrorizadas antes de que les rajaran sus gargantas. Fue una experiencia tan horrible de ver como siempre pero necesitamos permanecer tranquilos y positivos porque esto VA A TERMINAR. Porque no hay tal cosa como una muerte necesaria. Eso se llama asesinato, cuando acabas con la vida de alguien que quiere vivir.
Después de esta escena, invitaron a SAS (Sussex Animal Save) a una granja vegana independiente donde, al menos, 70 animales habían sido rescatados y viven mejor que nunca. Bien cuidados, respetados, mostrando compasión y amor. Así es como tienen que verse: VIVOS.
Porque amar a los animales significa no comértelos. Hate vegano/a💚 *ENGLISH VERSION*
Today we bore witness at Tottingworth Farm, and saw pigs no older than 8 months (they were just babies!),sheep and cows looking terrified before they have their throats cut. It was as horrible to see as always but we need to remain calm and stay positive because this is GOING TO END. Because there are not such a thing as a necessary death. That is called MURDER, when you end someone else's life who wanted to live.
After this scene, SAS got invited to an independent vegan farm where there were at least 70 rescued animals and they look as good than ever. Well looked after, showing respect, compassion and love. That's how they should look: ALIVE
Because loving animals means no eating them. Go vegan💚
It was an honor to have @moby join us last night in bearing witness to the poor souls who went to lose their lives at Farmer John. He is an incredible activist and it was amazing to have him with us. 🖤 There are no words to describe the feeling, please come out with @laanimalsave and experience this yourself in order to understand why we come out here every single week.✌🏼🖤🌱

#flashback to 3 1/2 years ago. This was my very first disruption. Look at how daintily I’m holding the placard! 😆 Much has happened since this day; good, bad and ugly... But one thing remains steadfast, I am here to fight for the rights of animals. To help end their use, exploitation, torture and slaughter. There is nothing I would rather spend my time doing. Actually, I don’t have a choice... I can’t not fight for them. I am so grateful to all the humans- and nonhuman animals- I’ve met over these past couple years- I can’t wait for all that is to come! ❤️👊🏻❤️ #friendsnotfood#untileveryanimalisfree#disruption#dxe#directactioneverywhere#activism
WHY DO VEGANS ALWAYS TALK ABOUT BEING VEGAN?? 😳 I took a survey on Facebook to see what questions people had for vegans and this was one of my favorites. Check out my answer in my short video 🐷 Link in bio.
CORRECTION: The United States enslaves over 9 million cows in order to exploit them for their milk. The dairy industry is built on the practice of taking babies away from their mothers, so they literally tear apart what could be "big, happy families." Get it right, @dominos.
The only glimpse I got of this gentle creature last Sunday was a split second passing shot from a video recorded. I only caught this because I was checking each frame individually. #692 There was a soul behind these eyes and a life. There was a living being who had a mother and lived in her womb for 9 months just like we lived in our mothers wombs for 9 months before stepping into the world. She did not want to be born a slave, killed, mutilated and reduced to an ingredient on a burger. This was captured on Sunday, but by the time I got up for work Monday morning, her corpse was already hanging in a refrigerated room next to hundreds of other bodies gutted, skinned, sliced in half and decapitated. Her head hanging on one rack and her insides on another. Her blood in a container to be sold as an “edible ingredient” (FOR WHAT???). Sounds like something out of a horror movie right? It’s reality and if it makes you uncomfortable, good. Maybe then you’ll realize if you can’t even hear or see how your food is made maybe you shouldn’t be eating it. I know this in detail because I’ve seen the inside of this slaughterhouse with my own eyes and smelled the death in the air. I saw the rotting corpses two inches from my face. Watch Earthlings and educate yourself on animal agriculture on the FULL spectrum. Then ask yourself how you can continue to support this. Better yet, ask yourself how fleeting taste is more important than a life. #692 I saw you. I loved you. Your life mattered and you didn’t deserve this. I hope everyone else realizes this too. I will never stop fighting for the freedom of your brothers and sisters.
#KaporosRescue Update: Our lovely two rescued chickens are doing great! Walking around more, eating healthily, and they've become the best of friends! And it turns out Sol is a rooster! Please donate to help support our rescued chickens and help us save more lives! Link in bio. 📲
"Action anti cirque avec animaux devant le festival international du cirque de Tours [antenne Indre-et-Loire – Région Centre-Val de Loire] samedi 30 septembre 2017.
70 militant-e-s se sont retrouvé-e-s, de 13h à 21h, au Parc de la Gloriette à Tours Sud où se trouvait le festival international du cirque afin de viser les trois représentations officielles de ce festival de la cruauté.
Le but de l’action était de sensibiliser le public sur les conditions des animaux dans les cirques et de montrer l’opposition de 269 Life France face à ce projet. Cette action est la suite logique de toutes celles faites au courant de l’année.
Mise en scène choc, slogans, tractage et discours ont accompagné l’intervention.
Il s’agissait de faire prendre conscience aux spectat-rice-eur-s de l’envers du décor, de la cruauté du dressage et de ce que les animaux doivent subir pour faire les numéros.
L’action a mobilisé du monde et permis de mettre la pression sur les organisat-rice-eur-s de ce festival.
La presse écrite a relayé l’action ainsi que TF1 pour un reportage grand angle diffusé prochainement.
"Nous vaincrons car notre cause est juste"
PLEASE READ: This weekend was incredibly difficult. My husband and I went to visit the lovely sanctuary that rescued the 12 babies and one of the babies died while we were there. 💕 Although I knew that everyone absolutely did EVERYTHING they could to take care of these babies and that they were filled with love, I was furious! 💕 I was furious at the farmer who thought that hurting these animals for a profit was ok, at our society for making this acceptable, and at the selfishness of people who would support this industry for a small taste on their tongues! 💕 Today's blog shares the whole story, why YOU as a consumer are not at fault and what WE vegans need to do about it. 💕 Please take 5 minutes to read it and to fight for the baby that died. Link in bio. ***This picture isn't the deceased baby, just one that is napping. 💕
Being an activist is never easy. We don't do it because it's easy or for anything in return. We do it because the animals' suffering and pain is our suffering and pain. They are not in this alone. Their lives matter. Every single one of them. We do not and will not ever turn away from it. We acknowledge it because it's real and it's happening every second of every day. We do not ignore oppression. We do not ignore slavery. We see it, we recognize it, we publicize it and hope that one of these glimpses into their world will finally change a heart somewhere. Look as us in ridicule if you must but we're not the ones dropping like hot tamales from heart disease, clogging our arteries with animal fat, major cancers or suffering from erectile dysfunction (yep, look it up).
This is not right. We shouldn't have to explain animal slavery more than once. We shouldn't have to beg people over and over to stop eating dead bodies and paying for cruelty. Please tell me why exactly you see this and don't care? What makes this ok in your mind? What makes this ok at all? Because it tastes good? Never mind that it's a rotting corpse right? Never mind that they were living in their own waste and diseases and you're literally eating all that shit. Never mind that they screamed in pain as they were hung upside down by one leg and had their throats slit. Never mind that some of them fell off the shackle from thrashing in immense pain and were continuously cut and vigorously thrown around until they finally died. Never mind that their brothers and sisters all watched these horrors happening as they waited in despair for their turn to die. Never mind that most of them tried to run the other way with nowhere to escape and probably got beat for that. Never mind that they were then boiled to remove the hair off their bodies while some were probably still conscious. Never mind that their bodies were chopped up into pieces to be covered in flavorings to mask the taste of dead flesh and be eaten because it just tastes so gosh darn good (except without those flavorings cause THAT would be gross)
