Humane slaughter?..like seriously? Anything to try and justify murdering animals because it puts money in someones pocket and people like the taste of them.. If you can apply that to another sentient living being who is conscious, then it should apply to human animals too. Having more power and intelligence doesn’t grant you the right to take the life away from another sentient being when you don’t need it to survive. Don’t believe the lies that have been engraved in our heads for so many years! Protect and Save the innocent, defenceless and kind hearted beings even though they look different than you!
If all these animals can be loved and cared for, also called pets, then all animals can be pets and we’ve proven it so why support an industry that kills over 56 billion pet animals each year with only 7 billion humans on earth and millions of people still starving to death. Do your research and you’ll easily find the shocking truth but it’s up to you to turn that into an action!

Honestly... it is truly so horrific that one second, these are cute curious chirping chickens 🐓, then the next, they are schnitzel, nuggets, drumsticks 🍽. /
Except, oh wait, it actually takes wayyy more than a brief flawless moment of slaughter ☠️. First, they are gassed in masses, hung up in shackles, then their throats will meet the blade, they are dunked into scalding hot tanks of water (sometimes fully conscious coz wouldn’t you also try to duck away from getting your neck sliced by a massive knife...), their organs are ripped out, and now their headless hairless bodies are packaged neatly into plastic trays printed with smiley blissful chickens because that’s obviously how they lived & died 😀😁☺️😆🐓🐓🐓.
Oh god be still my screaming heart...
@Regran_ed from @vegan.fem - This defenseless animal was live transported to a slaughterhouse.
He spent an entire day and night in this position.
His owner doesn't care about his wellbeing.
His owner cares about the amount of money his flesh will bring.
This is not a sentient being. He is a commodity, an 'it.' Please stop gorging on dead flesh and try vegan. - #regrann
As I looked into a cage that seperated me and them, I looked at everything but their eyes. I saw feet that would soon be discarded, necks that would soon be slit, and wings that would end up on someone's plate.
I was not brave enough to look into their eyes. As I hung my head in shame, I whispered into the cage. "It will be okay," I lied. It was a lie meant to comfort me more than them. I wasn't ready to bear the guilt of a species that feels entitled to their bodies-- a species that enslaves, rapes, mutilates, and kills, in a rampage of supremacy.
For a fleeting psychological moment I was with them in that cage-- helpless and suffering. In that moment, what seperated me from them wasn't a cage, it was 'species.' It could as easily have been my physical self in there. All it would take is for someone to consider me not worthy of the freedom I now posess. All it would take for my body to end up on a supermarket shelf is for someone in power to deem me lesser than, like we do to them.
As the destitute immigrant hand pulled the lever that ended their lives, I knew that what guided it was our apathy. We have decided that other animals' lives are not nearly as worthy as our own.
As the chickens' screams got louder, and as I stood by in the privilege of my species, I had never felt so desperate for an answer to the abject cruelty we inflict upon them. We all draw lines somewhere: sex, race, class, sexuality, ability, etc. But as the morbid stench of their sliced flesh filled the air, I despised - with all the emotional strength I had left - the arbitrary line we drew between me and them.
Because it could have been me on the other side of the line. -AM
#AmericanCrime 30: Israel’s U.S.-Armed and -Backed Massacre in #Gaza (2008-2009)
Since the mid-1960s, #Israel has served as a base, and an enforcer, for U.S. imperialism in the Middle East and beyond.
The Democratic Party-controlled 2008 Congress: Since the mid-1960s, Israel has served as a base, and an enforcer, for U.S. imperialism in the Middle East and beyond. By 2008, when the position of the U.S. atop a world of exploitation and oppression was being challenged and under stress from many directions, the “special relationship” between the U.S. and Israel was seen as all the more critical by the U.S. rulers—both Republicans and Democrats.
