Tibet: In The Dark – Finding Tibet’s Hidden Prisoners.


From ‘Free Tibet’ – London.

Imagine being snatched from the street or even your home. You are loaded into a police car and driven to an unknown location. Your friends, colleagues and family don’t know where you are. Nor do you. It is like you have disappeared from the face of the earth.

Enforced disappearances are designed to punish Tibetans who resist or fall foul of the occupation, and to scare other Tibetans away from opposing the occupation or freely expressing their culture. Today Free Tibet is launching our new In The Dark campaign by highlighting six of these enforced disappearances. For each, we have listed some important strategic actions that you can complete online right now, in order to pressure the authorities into releasing them.

Click below to learn about their cases and see how you can help.



These six prisoners are just the first stage of our new campaign to bring public attention to this cruel and oppressive practice. To learn more about enforced disappearances, Tibet’s hidden prisoners and our campaign, visit our website. The Chinese authorities want to hide these prisoners from the world. We are determined to find them, shine a light on their cases and push for their release. We hope that you will join us in making a stand for Tibet’s hidden prisoners.

Thank you,

China: A Massive Drop (70% +) In Purchasing Shark Fin After Major Awareness Campaign.

Sales of shark fin in China drop by up to 70%



Traditionally a symbol of wealth and luxury, public attitudes towards shark fin are changing in China, according to a new report

A popular dish at weddings and banquets in China, shark fin soup is increasingly off the menu due to a government frugality drive and awareness campaigns and by conservationists, according to a new report.

The trade in shark fins, a symbol of wealth in China and other parts of Asia, has led to the decline in some shark populations by up to 98% in the last 15 years. An estimated 100 million sharks are killed each year with up to 73 million used for their fins.

China became the world’s largest market for shark fin due to its rising wealth and desire for luxury goods. However, sales of shark fin have fallen from 50-70%, according to a report by WildAid, a US-based organisation focusing on reducing demand for wildlife products.

According to data collected by WildAid, sales of shark fin in Guangzhou, considered to be the centre of the shark fin trade in China, have dropped by 82%. The report complied data from a number of different sources including news reports, online surveys, undercover interviews with traders in China and trade statistics from Hong Kong, once considered to be the global hub for trade in shark fin.

According to the report, wholesale shark fin traders in Guangzhou are complaining that sales are decreasing and prices are falling. One wholesaler quoted in the report said that “shark fin is a dying business” with others reporting that medium-sized shark fins are only selling for half the price.

An anti-corruption drive by the Chinese government is thought to be one of the main factors behind the decrease in sales. Considered a luxurious delicacy, shark fin was often a feature on the menu at official functions. But under the government’s austerity campaign, it was banned from being served at state events in 2012.


Peter Knights, Executive Director of WildAid said that while the government ban has played a role there has been “no magic bullet, it’s been a combination of factors”.

WildAid say that a change in public attitudes towards the consumption of shark fin in China, particularly among younger generations, is having a big impact too. According to the report, 85% of Chinese consumers surveyed online said they gave up shark fin soup within the past 3 years. They credit a large awareness campaign of the impact of the shark fin trade, headed by former basketball star Yao Ming, a popular figure in China. “The more people learn about the consequences of eating shark fin soup, the less they want to participate in the trade,” said Knights.

Pressure from conservationists has also influenced big businesses. A number of large hotel chains have stopped serving shark fin soup and more than 20 airlines have agreed not to transport it.

Last year, it was reported that the owners of factories that process sharks in Puqi, a seaside town in Zhejiang province blamed such awareness campaigns for a drop in their business. Hong Kong-based conservation group WildLife Risk, previously alleged that a plant in Puqi were processing hundreds of sharks of endangered species each year.
A quarter of the world’s sharks are threatened with extinction, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (ICUN) with the market for shark fin a major factor. Knights said that the reduction in sales of shark fin will help the situation. “Hopefully sharks will become commercially extinct rather than actually extinct. It’s certainly going to help relieve pressure to a large degree.”




Factory Farming in Asia Creating Health Risks. But For The USA And Australia There Are Hidden Issues.

Factory Farming in Asia Creating Health Risks.

Growth of intensive units has potential to increase antibiotic resistance and could result in spread of bird flu beyond region.

The use of antibiotics in factory farms in Asia is set to more than double in just over a decade, with potentially damaging effects on antibiotic resistance around the world.

Factory farming of poultry in Asia is also increasing the threat of bird flu spreading beyond the region, with more deadly strains taking hold, according to a new report from a network of financial investors.

Use of antibiotics in poultry and pig farms will increase by more than 120% in Asiaby 2030, based on current trends.

Half of all antibiotics globally are now consumed in China alone. The Chinese meat and animal feed producers New Hope Group and Wen’s Group are now among the 10 biggest animal feed manufacturers in the world.


Read the rest of this very interesting article at:



Recently, Chinese companies have been buying farms in the United States and Australia to provide feed for their country’s dairy and beef industries.

In late 2013 a Chinese company, (Shenghui), purchased the largest US pork producer, named ‘Smithfield Foods’, to help keep up with demand.

China’s demand for meat could potentially continue to grow and support hundreds of thousands of jobs in the US meat industry.

Sounds good for the USA;

but also think; from a climate perspective, the methane produced by the animals will still continue to be created, but it will be shifted to the United States rather than remain in China.

Germany: Why I Do Not Vote. The Political System of Germany and The EU Is Too Corrupt For Any Animal Welfare.

On July 8, 2017, a dead wolf was retrieved from the lake Schluchsee in southern Germany, near my village.

He was shot. It is the 24th wolf shot illegally since the resettlement of the wolves in Germany in the year 2000. Of these 24 murders, there were only three convictions up to now – in all cases, the perpetrators had posed themselves.

After each murder there are always the same discussions:

These are the poachers,” say the hunters, “we are very sorry,” say the friends of the hunters, the politicians, and the peasants who have nothing against wolves but want to protect their flocks.

As soon as the cruel battle of the whales and dolphins in Denmark begins, the German press hasten to report about it and tries to harass a reader-friendly readership against the “criminals”.

It is always the other countries that are criminally dealing with animals, there are always the others who are corrupt and proficient, it is the Chinese who massacre the dogs, and the rich safari hunters who cull our elephants.

It is terrible to exterminate animals, you have to do something!!!

Petitions are signed, donations flow without end to the protection of the threatened animals !!!

And so the German citizen always points to other people who illegally kill wild animals because their governments are corrupt.

Always the others!

The Green Minister of the Environment, Franz Untersteller, has taken a ridiculous position on the subject:

Shooting a wolf is a criminal offense. I very much regret that a man has extinguished the life of this rare creature by force. “

Thus an incapable politician wants us to declare that the 24th murder of a strictly protected animal provokes only his sadness, and he even reminds us that it is a crime. They are the politicians who will continue their co-operation with hunters, the meat mafia, the circus industry, laboratory labs directors, etc … in the coming elections of Germany with the blessing of a dumbed people and want to persuade us that they do it all for our benefit!

I have absolutely no hope that in Germany that any government can work for my good – and I am a German citizen; a citizen of the gutless EU !

But if I at least knew that a (political) party wants to take the welfare of the animals into account and improve it where they can, then I would go to the elections.

So far, however, I am not aware of this political animal saviour, and the German animal protection party plays no essential role in the political scene.

I will not vote for this reason.

Best regards to you, Mark, and to all

SAV Comment

We agree with Venus – there seems very little hope for positive animal welfare.

– it will be interesting to see what happens at the German elections in September 2017.


With Angela Merkel and now also Martin Schultz (President of the European Parliament from 2012 to 2017) as 2 of the main political contenders,  it is very unlikely that the ‘animal welfare voice’ will start to be listened to in Germany. 

Merkel does not listen, and Schultz, ex EU Parliament President – what more does one need to say; he is ex EU – and the EU policy ‘is what we have experienced with live animal exports to Turkey, for example, “there is nothing we can do”.

What faith in politicians to make the world a better place for all !

England: CCTV to be compulsory in all abattoirs in England.


Its been a long campaign for many, but finally:


CCTV to be compulsory in all abattoirs in England


BBC –    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-40895049


Slaughterhouses in England will have to install CCTV as part of government plans to monitor animal welfare.

Under rules being phased in over the next year, Food Standards Agency vets will be able to ask to see footage of all areas where livestock are held.

Slaughterhouses found to be failing welfare standards could face a criminal investigation or lose staff licences.

Environment Secretary Michael Gove said the proposals would make the UK a “global leader on animal welfare”.


British Veterinary Association (BVA) president Gudrun Ravetz said the mandatory CCTV in all areas of slaughterhouses was “essential” to safeguarding animal welfare.

“We are particularly pleased to see a commitment to official veterinarians having unrestricted access to footage, which the BVA has been calling for,” he said.

“Vets’ independence and unique qualifications help ensure that the UK will continue to have the highest standards of animal health, welfare and food safety.”


Our recent post relating to a report by Animal Aid:




Animal Aid have worked so very hard to get cctv installed – congrats to them.







England: New Arrival No. 1 At The Jeskyns Dormouse Boxes ! – Great News (11.8/17).

Please go to ‘About Us’ – https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/about-us/

Then scroll a long way down to the heading ‘Volunteering’.


Here you will see photographs of some of the (50) Dormouse boxes made a few years ago to try and encourage them back into the area at Jeskyns Park.

Well the great news today (11/8/17) is that we have our first Dormouse in one of the boxes.  You can see a picture of him here.  A very well equipped male by all accounts !


After a health and weight check, the mouse was returned to the box so that it could get back to sleep.

In the UK, you have to be licensed to be able to access boxes and to handle the animals.  This little guy was found recently during a check of all the boxes by a licensed ranger.

3 boxes had nests in but the other 2 were empty when inspected.  Maybe they also have occupants and they were out shopping or something !

Great news – we are very happy.  Lets hope this is just the start of many, many more !  New Arrival No. 1.

Tell me more about them – please go to:

China: Times They Are A Changing – For The Better For Chinese Animals And Their Welfare.


We are giving a few links here about animal welfare / rights in China as we see this as a very forward moving area; much more so than certain areas of Europe where some governments just refuse to accept animals as sentient living creatures that deserve our protection during their lives; a basic requirement – nothing special about that. 

There is a lot of information here, and so we provide links to the many write ups on the situation in China.  We leave it to individuals to select what they wish to view by clicking on the links provided.  Much of the news is very positive and we take great satisfaction from the fact that animals in China will certainly have better treatment in the future than they often have had in the past. 

We offer support and congratulations to all the activists, groups and individuals who are working to make things much better for animals in China.  SAV.

Animal welfare and rights in China



I have questioned myself for a while if I should actually show the following.  I have provided them to UK welfare groups going to China for additional ‘support’ for their campaigns.  The pictures are probably around 10 years old now and show pigs in China going for slaughter and how they have been treated in the past.  These photos were taken undercover.  You can see the hooks going through the lower jaws of the animals and how they are then restrained on vehicles taking them for slaughter.

I have had these pictures in my private collection for many years and they have never been released.  With the growing movement of animal welfare and rights in China I now feel that these must be shown as a memory of how animals were treated until recently.

Many people will be shocked by these, but this is the reality of animal treatment and cruelty.  These photos could have come from many places in the world which treats animals as throw away trash.  I hope that people will see these and gain more respect for living sentient creatures wherever they may be located in the world.

We don’t ask much, only that all animals are treated with respect and as sentient beings.   Like you and me, if you kick them, they hurt.  There is no difference; they are NOT different, so lets not pretend or think that they are, as some governments and people do. 





Australia: CommBank just ruled out funding Adani’s Carmichael coal mine! – News From Greenpeace.


Hi Mark

BIG NEWS: CommBank just ruled out funding Adani’s Carmichael coal mine! [1]

This is an incredible win for people power. But we can’t stop now: it looks like CommBank will release its new climate policy on Monday – and we have to push them to go further by ruling out funding fossil fuels completely.

Can you urgently call CommBank’s feedback hotline, and ask it to ditch fossil fuels for good?

CALL NOW: 1800 805 605 or (02) 9687 0756

In the past 18 months, CommBank has funded more pollution than any other Australian bank. [2] It’s great news that it’s finally joined 23 other banks in ruling out the reef-destroying Carmichael mine – but CBA needs to do much more than that if it wants to show it’s taking climate change seriously.

14 other banks around the world have already ruled out funding new coal projects. [3] Let’s get CBA on that list.

If hundreds of us call today and over the weekend (it’s a 24 hour line!), we stand a real chance of getting the bank to go further and rule out funding all fossil fuels.

Do you have 5 minutes to spare? Get on the blower now!

Call Commbank on 1800 805 605 or (02) 9687 0756.


  • Be polite

  • Acknowledge they’ve made progress in ruling out funding the Carmichael coal mine

  • Tell them that you want them to commit to ruling out financing all new fossil fuels

Such an extraordinary amount of hard work from tens of thousands of people all around Australia has led CommBank to rule out funding Carmichael today – now let’s go ten steps further, and get them to ditch fossil fuels in Monday’s climate policy announcement.

Britain’s Last Barbaric SeaTrade.


Note that although this is England – Ramsgate is on the Kent SE English coast, all the transporters are Dutch – you can tell by the ‘BV’ carried at the end of the name above the cab or the yellow number plate with 3 sets of 2 digits.  Obviously all left hand drive also – we have right hand drives in the UK.  Policing paid for by the people of Kent from their taxes – a Conservative government which takes the money and does nothing but allowing this to happen.

The whole set up, including the ferry named ‘Joline’, is operated by a Dutchman named ‘Onderwater’.  He was convicted in a UK court (Folkestone) several years ago and fined in excess of £10,000 due to animal welfare convictions.  He is a UK convicted criminal found guilty in a British court of law.  Why does the EU still allow him to operate ? – why does the gutless UK Conservative government allow this to continue ?

You know what, they (EU and UK government) are both as bad as each other; which is just as bad as Onderwater.

They talk about respect – what with this – you must be joking !

UK: 700,000 Potentially Contaminated Eggs Sent To UK From Dutch Farms.



Update 11/8/17.



Here again we see the EU doing nothing until it is too late – ignoring things just like evidence about live EU animals to Turkey.  Now that money, profits and the industry name being given a bad press, suddenly the EU ramps up a gear and becomes more involved.

The reality – they don’t care, only about their own reputation and making sure they go along with the animal mafia.  Arrests in Belgium and the Netherlands over this; lets see exactly what comes of it and more importantly, what the EU actually does about it.

More official EU Regulations on paper no doubt, paper which just gets pasted over the real cracks in the system as with all EU legislation.  Maybe the troubleshooter Mr useless Van Goethem will be put on the case – or by doing this will he get egg on his face ?

Above – EU Team ‘Do Nothing’





About 700,000 eggs have been sent to the UK from potentially contaminated Dutch farms, up from an early estimate of 21,000, the food watchdog has said.

SAV Comment – not 21k but 700k – small error – hmm !

11 products containing egg – including sandwiches and salads – have been withdrawn from supermarkets.

Dutch police have now arrested two people suspected of using the insecticide fipronil.

Scandal ‘isn’t over’

Supermarkets in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany have withdrawn millions of eggs from sale.

In the UK, processed foods containing eggs, including sandwiches and salads, have been recalled from UK supermarkets Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Waitrose and Asda.

The FSA initially thought far fewer eggs – 21,000 – had been distributed to the UK from implicated farms between March and June this year.

Prof Chris Elliott, of the Institute for Global Food Security at Queen’s University Belfast, said it was not surprising that the figure had increased by so much – and warned “the scandal isn’t over yet”.

Fipronil should not be allowed anywhere near food.

Many of the affected eggs will have already passed through the food chain before anyone was aware of the scandal.

And the FSA has now pulled egg sandwiches and egg salads off the shelves that were made while contaminated eggs were still being imported.

It follows a joint investigation by Dutch and Belgian police of several premises thought to be using the substance, which can harm humans and is banned in food production.

The Netherlands is Europe’s biggest egg producer – and one of the largest exporters of eggs and egg products in the world.

It has since emerged Belgian officials knew about the contamination in June, but did not make the information public.

More than 100 poultry farms have been closed during the investigation, and 26 suspects identified and evidence seized from their companies.

It is thought that fipronil was added to disinfectant used on some chicken farms.

PS – Vegans do NOT eat eggs !


Netherlands: Adriaan Straathof – The ‘Pig Baron’ Behind The 20,000 Pig Deaths.

Regarding our very recent post (including a video) of the 20,000 pigs burned to death in the Netherlands:


Venus has kindly been looking into this more – and has provided a lot more information which we think you will fine interesting.

Dear Mark,
I promised you to write a post about the “Pig Baron” Straathof, here it is.

The story is old, as old as corruption in the meat business and the boundless exploitation of the animals of the system and its servants.

And unfortunately, the story repeats itself.


The case Straathof and the Holocaust of 24,000 pigs


On the 27th of July 2017 about 24,000 nonhuman beings were burnt alive at the “Knorhof” in Erichem (NL).


Adriaan Straathof

Owner of the animal barracks: the Dutchman Adriaan Straathof, the “pig baron”.
For years this barracks has been under criticism, it was actually built as a poultry shed.

Straathof converted this barracks into two floors and got the permission for:

-2,000 sows with suckling piglets,
-7,600 rearing piglets and
-9,600 Fattening pigs

Adrianus Straathof is one of the largest pig producers in Europe.
He produced 1.5 million piglets per year in Germany alone, when he was still allowed to work there.

Since 2016, Straathof has been forbidden to work in Germany.

Here the chronology:

December 2014: Against Straathof, a ban on feeding and caring has been imposed.

March 2015: Evidence of serious animal welfare violations; Criminal officers carry out a major raid in the pig farm ‘Gut Thiemendorf’.

April 2015: Nevertheless, the ban on banning animals is canceled by the Supreme Administrative Court. The evidence is not sufficient.

June 2015: Straathof remains in the sights of the authorities: 100 officials searched the breeding farms of his pig empire!

 June 2016: In Magdeburg, the professional ban against the pig owner Adrianus Straathof is being tried in court.

July 2016: The Administrative Court in Magdeburg confirms the ban on the profession against Straathof. Straathof appealed against the judgment of the Administrative Court Magdeburg.


On 4 November 2016, the Senate of the Higher Administrative Court of Saxony-Anhalt rejected this request for appeal.

Since then, he has been forbidden to work in Germany.

And so Straathof returns to his home country, the Netherlands, and builds a new barracks for 20,000 pigs in a two-storey poultry stable.

Straathof ignores in his new home, as in Germany, every precept which concerns the animal husbandry.
And so there is the burning of 24,000 living beings in Strathof’s barracks.

But, is Straathof a single offender?

No! No way!

Straathof only does what is allowed to him. Politicians and authorities, these are the main guilty, these are our enemies.

The problem is the system.

The state and no one else is responsible for checking whether all, even fraudsters such as Straathof, adhere to animal welfare.

And this control is traditionally weak, you might say miserable.

Because in the lobby republics, the interests of the big businessmen are always taking their place.

Straathof is nothing more than the controlled actor of a corrupt system.

I still trust 24,000 creatures who were unfortunate enough to be born, bred, tortured, and burned in the barracks of Adriaan Straathof.


Best Regards

from Venus

UK: Global Day of Action Against Live Animal Export – 13/9/17.


Dear Mark,

Every year millions of animals around the world endure horrific suffering as a result of the long distance live transport trade.

On the 13th September we are organising a rally in central London as part of Stop Live Transport International Awareness Day. A global day of action to speak out on behalf of the animals that cannot speak for themselves.

In the UK, for decades politicians have said that it is EU law that prevents a ban on live exports. As we are now leaving the EU, this argument no longer stands.

They are out of excuses and we need to make sure that they know we expect action. Confirmation of the London rally’s exact location will follow in due course, but I wanted to get in touch with you now, so that you could save the date.


Can’t make it to London? Why not attend a local Stop Live Transport event, or even organise your own? Check out the events already planned – from Edinburgh to Tel Aviv, from Dublin to Warsaw – at stoplivetransport.org

Together we will demonstrate global opposition to this abhorrent trade and expose the ugly truth:

– Excessively long journeys without sufficient food, water or rest

– Animals being transported when sick, injured, very young or heavily pregnant

– Ill-equipped and overcrowded vehicles

– Exports from countries with animal protection laws to those that have none, with animals often facing terrible abuse both during transport and at the time of slaughter.

I hope that you can join us on the 13th September to use your voice for those who are voiceless. Even if you cannot be there in person, you can still get involved in the Stop Live Transport International Awareness Day in many other ways.

Thank you so much for your support.

USA: Right off the coast of California, whales are drowning. Yet the Federal Agency For Protecting Whales, Refuses To Shut Down the Driftnet Industry.



Right off the coast of California, whales are drowning.

According to the government’s own data, one in four whales entangled in fishery gear is killed or seriously injured. Entangled whales can die slow and painful deaths.

And yet, the federal agency mandated to protect these animals backed off of common-sense regulations and refuses to close down the deadly driftnet fishery.

How deadly? The California driftnet fishery kills more whales, dolphins, and other marine mammals than all other observed West Coast fisheries – combined!

Please make a generous donation of $50 or more today so together we can fight the good fight to protect whales, sharks, and sea turtles from the deadly driftnet fishery.

Indonesia: Sends In The Army To Kill Monkeys Because When Food Is Scarce They Take From Humans – Nothing Said About The Human Destruction And Orangutan Deaths Due To Palmoil – Wow, We Wnder Why !!!



I read this news in “Spiegel.de/panorama” a few days ago, here is the translation:


“Indonesia: Army should stop monkey invasion”!!

Indonesia has the army marched up – against naughty monkey bands. The animals are increasingly becoming a problem for the residents of the Boyolali district on the island of Java. The military should now help.

The chief of the district, Seno Samodro, spoke of an “invasion of hundreds of monkeys”, which could only be met with firearms. The long-tailed macaques fell massively over plantations, they steadied maize and fruits and sometimes even attacked people, complained Samodro. Alone this year monkeys had bitten eleven local residents.

The district administration therefore mobilizes soldiers, policemen, hunters and members of shooting clubs, who are to go on patrols and kill the monkeys. A local shooters’ association sends ten members every day. According to “Newsweek” against the animals however only rubber boots are used.

In the region is currently dry season, the food in nature is scarce. This forces the monkeys to look for food in humans.


And here is my response to the article:

Why the animals walk around hungry and “steal” fruit or maize the journalist does not tell us, of course.

If he had told us that Indonesia is one of the main cultivators for palm oil, and every day countless hectares of the jungle would be burnt for this shit palm oil, he might lose his job, the palm oil industry does not joke!


And only who gets this information knows that monkeys and other animals lose their homes, their food their families every day. At the beginning of the 1990s, some 150,000 orangutans still lived in Sumatra and Borneo. Today there are only 49,000.


SAV Comment

– see pictures below – the journalist does not tell us that 300  soccer fields sized areas are deforested every hour – and that 50 Orangutans are killed every week doing this. 

He claims to be a journalist but his writing is very much one sided; that in defence of the palm oil industry and of the destruction caused by the monkeys to humans who have invaded the monkeys homelands !.  What about the destruction caused by the humans in the rainforest every hour ? – tell us about that Mr Journalist.  Or do you not want people to know about an industry which kills so many wonderful animals ?

The journalist has not told us this, because he is paid neither to write truth nor real facts. For this reason, he tells us in the end that the cause of this “invasion” is the dryness.

The most successful way to cover up the truth is to confuse effect with cause. The press writes of aggressive monkeys and threatened people. And so the mass murder against the expellees is justified. We experience a lie shock every day, in the television, in the press on the radio.

I think the German press is a typical case of presstitution.

with regards to you Mark and all




Indonesia Again – The Zoo Of Death






Netherlands: 20,000 Pigs Die in Latest Massive Dutch Factory Farm Fire – And The Farmer, With 6 Mega Units in Europe, He Hopes To Carry On As Usual. Take Action Here – Get Him Stopped !

Video link showing the fire at the facility –



Dear friends, They were burnt alive20,000 pigs packed into tiny pens with nowhere to run.


But his farms were hell long before that:

sick piglets beaten to death,

extreme overcrowding,

animals left suffering with broken bones and protruding organs.

Dutch farmer Adriaan Straathof has a gruesome reputation and Germany has already banned his farming.

Now other EU countries must do the same.

The farmer hopes to just carry on, but if we make this huge, we can force a whole new level of scrutiny, and get regulators to suspend his permits while all his farms are urgently investigated.

There’s no time to lose!

Sign with one click: No More Torture Farms

To local, regional, national, and European regulators: “As citizens outraged but the incredible suffering of animals on farms owned by Adriaan Straathof, we urge you to take advantage of all possibilities offered by local, regional, national, and European laws to withdraw his farming permits, ensuring he is unable to farm or keep any livestock or other animals. We also urge you to pass stricter fire and animal welfare regulation to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”

Sign with one click: No More Torture Farms

Straathof is one of the biggest pig farmers in the EU, with 6 mega farms in the Netherlands and a string of others in Hungary and Germany. And while the Dutch food safety authority has inspected his farms 14 times, and reports of abuse, fines, and violations are piling up, he’s just got a permit to farm another 11,000 pigs!

Enough — this isn’t farming, it’s industrial torture!

Together we can make sure that these were his last victims. Let’s create a massive public appeal, forcing regulators to intervene and stop the next bloodbath: Sign with one click: No More Torture Farms

Our movement has been on the frontline of fighting violence against animals, from China’s dog meat festival, to the cruel trade in horse blood. We know that when we come together in massive numbers to protect animals, incredible things can happen — and this time will be no different.

UK: 35 Million MORE Free Range Eggs Sold Than Those From Caged Birds – Consumers Get And Support The Message.

UK consumers have listened and purchased according to the message – animal welfare matters – and purchased 35 million more free range eggs – so campaigners must be doing something right ! – SAV.

Free range eggs have outsold those laid by

caged hens for the first time.

Major supermarkets are committed to ending sales of caged eggs – and official figures show consumers are backing the move.

From October last year to June 35million more free range eggs were produced by UK farmers than eggs from caged and barn-raised hens.

Positive Result – Merck, Sharp and Dohme (MSD) CUT ALL Horse Blood Ties In South America – But We Must Now Take Action To Stop Others Stepping In To Take Their Place – Actions Below.

Our past posts:








Well done everybody who supported and took action on this campaign – you have achieved a positive result to dramatically help horses – but now further action is required to STOP other organisations stepping in and taking over on your victory congratulations on the MSD action ! – SAV.



You did it!

After years of investigative work by the Animal Welfare Foundation, its partners in Uruguay, and hundreds of thousands of SumOfUs members like you taking action, Merck, Sharp and Dohme (MSD) has cut all ties with horse blood farms in South America!

Thank you for campaigning against this sickening business. And thank you for not shying away from confronting the biggest and most powerful corporations out there.

Together, we’ve moved a pharma giant.

Together, we are a force to be reckoned with.

But we cannot stop here.


Cruel horse blood farms will still operate as long as there are pharma companies willing to buy their products — and the next big player could step in and take over the business MSD has left behind.

Mark, will you share our campaign against IDT Biologika with your friends?

The more we are, the better our chances of getting IDT Biologika to stop working with these torturous blood farms as well.


Or you can copy and share this email if you prefer:


Dear Friends, 

Big pharma is making huge profits from the torture of horses. Thousands of horses are raised purely for the purpose of having their blood extracted and sold — with dire consequences.

It’s a sickening business that the SumOfUs community has been standing up against for months. And together we just scored a major victory against it! Pharma giant Merck, Sharp and Dohme (MSD) cut all ties with the most notorious blood farms we know about!

Now we need to stop the next big player — IDT Biologika — from stepping in and taking over the business MSD has left behind.

Can you help?

Thanks for all you do,

The Cow That Would Not Stop Crying – Separation For A Pint Of Milk – But Intervention Finally Re Unites Them.

Don’t support this cruelty by drinking cows milk:

In all my years doing live export campaign work; the thing that used to get to me the most was witnessing truck loads of baby calves destined for the veal farms of Europe.  You could hear the transporters often before you actually saw them, such was the noise of hundreds of baby calves desperately bellowing for their mothers.  They would never see them again – such was the human want for veal steaks and money.

That is why I gave up meat a long, long time ago and turned to a cruelty free diet – I cannot support the dairy industry or anything that involves meat production.  To me it is all an industry of cruelty and animal exploitation in return for a financial result.

Some will think I am stupid for what I do and that is fine by me.

In my opinion, when those same folk have heard it, seen it and smelled it then they can criticise me, but not before.  They are the kind who just want to turn the other way and try to pretend that there is nothing wrong.

Well, in my opinion, they are the ones who are wrong.

There is something desperately wrong with the whole animal farming process.

Below is one of hundreds of photos I took of calf transporters going through Dover port in England.

Click on the image to enlarge it and you will see the tongues of many calves licking the bars of the transporter.  They are trying to get milk as they would naturally from their mothers.  They would endure this for another 8-10 hours before they arrived at Dutch veal farms where they would be given a cheap and crappy milk substitute to drink.  They would never taste their own mothers milk ever again.  Now confined to a crate and waiting for death in the name of veal in 6 months or less.

That is why I don’t do milk or meat – cows milk is for baby cows, not humans.

Other images below form part of the investigation reports into calf exports submitted to the EU.

With thanks to friends at PMAF.  See more about this at ‘About Us’ – tab at top of page.

A Big Win for Great Lakes Wolves

Gray wolves
A victory for wolves this week: The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals decided the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service was wrong when it removed Endangered Species Act protections from gray wolves in the western Great Lakes states. This ruling protects more than 3,000 wolves in the region and saves hundreds from killing each year. The decision marks the eighth time — at least — that a federal court has ruled that the Service has wrongly ended gray wolf protections. “The second-highest court in the nation reaffirmed that we must do much more to recover gray wolves before declaring the mission accomplished,” said the Center’s Noah Greenwald. “Wolves are still missing from more than 90 percent of their historic range in the lower 48 states, and both the Endangered Species Act and common sense tell us we can’t ignore that loss.” Read more in the Chicago Tribune.

Trump Flouts the Law to Rush Border-wall Construction

Trump’s Department of Homeland Security announced Tuesday it’s exempting itself from all laws — including environmental laws — to rush construction of the border wall near San Diego. This waiver would speed construction of replacement walls, roads, 30-foot-high “prototypes,” lighting and other infrastructure without any analysis of environmental impacts on local endangered species — including Quino checkerspot butterflies and tiny gray songbirds called coastal California gnatcatchers.
The Center is suing Trump’s administration over its failure to perform environmental analysis or release information about the border-wall project. “Trump’s wall is a divisive symbol of fear and hatred, and it does real harm to the landscape and border communities,” said Center attorney Brian Segee

The Fight’s Getting Started to Save Yellowstone’s Grizzlies

The road to recovery for Yellowstone’s grizzly bears just got steeper — but the battle to save them is far from over. This week the Trump administration finalized the removal of federal Endangered Species Act protections from grizzlies living in and around Yellowstone National Park — even though grizzlies only occupy less than 5 percent of their historic range, and Yellowstone grizzlies remain isolated. Wyoming, Montana and Idaho have now taken over management and have stated they plan to implement trophy-hunting seasons soon.

But the Center, along with conservation and tribal allies, have already told the Fish and Wildlife Service we’ll sue if the agency doesn’t reverse course. Stay tuned for how you can help.


Appeal Filed Against Destructive SoCal Freeway Plan

A $1.7 billion, six-lane freeway project in Southern California would hurt low-income neighborhoods, fragment San Jacinto Valley wildlife preserves, and pollute the air — so the Center and partners have filed a federal challenge. The project site harbors species like burrowing owls, Swainson’s hawks, tricolored blackbirds and Stephens’ kangaroo rats. “Rather than offer 21st-century transit solutions, the feds ignored environmental laws and pushed through this boondoggle, which will hurt imperiled animals and force hundreds of people from their homes,” said the Center’s Aruna Prabhala.

Suit Seeks to Expose Trump’s Collusion With Coal

The Center has sued the Trump administration for not providing public records on closed-door meetings between the U.S. Department of the Interior and fossil-fuel industry executives. “If Trump and Zinke had nothing to hide, they’d comply with our simple call to release meeting records,” said the Center’s Senior Counsel Bill Snape. “Instead the administration continues to plot with fossil-fuel executives in secret, making decisions that hurt public health and affect the future of all Americans.”


















UK: Britain’s second biggest chicken company exposed in undercover investigation. Please watch the video.



Video evidence:



Britain’s second biggest chicken company exposed.

Dear Mark

Today we released footage filmed over the past two months on a West Country chicken farm that supplies Faccenda – the UK’s second largest chicken company.

More than 150,000 birds are housed in four giant sheds in crowded, barren conditions to end up on shelves and menus of retailers such as Nando’s, Lidl and Asda.


Some of the distressing scenes captured by our investigators include:

  • Hundreds of dead chicks being dumped every day for several days, including one who was thrown into a wheelbarrow alive with dozens of dead bodies and left for at least an hour.

  • A worker kicking birds during daily checks inside the sheds; collecting ill birds and breaking their necks, with some still alive and flapping their wings as he carried them around.

  • Lame birds in obvious discomfort attempting to walk; birds on their backs slowly dying because they are unable to stand and reach water and birds with red, raw sores from the filthy ammonia-soaked litter underfoot.

  • Workers violently catching and crating birds for transport to the slaughterhouse, including carrying birds by one leg in violation of Defra’s welfare code.

  • Our expose featured in The Times and The Independent today, alerting millions of people to the agony endured by chickens raised and killed for meat in Britain.

  • Please help spread the word by sharing our video with your friends and family, and encouraging them to discover the joys of plant-based food by signing our Love Veg pledge!

  • Thank you for helping to make the world a better place for animals.

New Zealand: 6,600 Dairy Cows Currently On Their Sea Journey From NZ To China.


Thanks to Jane for sending the following info:

Above and below – Ocean Drover.


Around 6,600 dairy cows from New Zealand are currently en route to China aboard the world’s largest livestock carrier, the Ocean Drover.

The 176m long vessel collected the first half of its cargo at Timaru port in New Zealand’s southern island, before travelling north to Napier port to collect the remaining cows.

It was scheduled to depart New Zealand shores on Friday, July 31. The shipment is currently travelling across the Pacific Ocean; it is approximately half way through its journey to China.
The arrival date and time of the livestock carrier at a port in China are unknown, as the journey time will depend on both weather and sea conditions.

The Ocean Drover, which was built in 2002, is believed to be the world’s largest livestock carrier. It measures 176.1m in length and is 31.1m wide; the vessel tips the scales at just under 13,500t deadweight.

It is believed that these New Zealand cows will be transported to farms owned by dairy giant Fonterra.

The news of the Ocean Drover’s departure to China coincided with New Zealand being described as China’s “most important” dairy partner at the China-NZ Dairy Forum.


The forum was co-hosted by Fonterra and it aims to promote the exchange of ideas between the two countries.

At the forum, the Chairman of the Dairy Association of China (DAC), Gao Hongbin, praised New Zealand while recognising the role international companies play in the domestic industry.

New Zealand is China’s most important overseas dairy partner and this partnership will keep strengthening,” he said.

Sharing knowledge on effluent management systems, which is an important part of delivering sustainable dairy systems, was a key theme at this year’s forum, Fonterra added.

USA: Take Action For Young Puppy Beaten With Crowbar And Dragged Behind Vehicle – The Good News Is Hes Was Rescued and Is OK.




Target: Donna Kaspar, District Attorney of Houston, Texas

Goal: Seek the maximum penalty possible for man who allegedly beat his puppy with a crow bar before dragging him down the road.

An eight-week old Labrador puppy, named Mud, was reportedly beaten with a crow bar after his owner had duct taped the poor puppy’s muzzle.

According to witnesses, the owner, 58-year-old Dwain Riley, coaxed his timid puppy outside by dangling treats in front of him.

Witnesses say that Riley then tied the puppy by the neck to his vehicle before duct-taping his muzzle and beating him with a crowbar. He sped 10 – 15 miles per hour with poor Mud dragging behind.

The injured puppy barked and managed to wrestle free and a neighbor was able to grab the dog and take him to safety.

These would be the actions of an extremely cruel, violent person who has no business owning animals. Please add your signature to the petition below to demand that Riley receive the maximum penalty and be banned from owning animals if convicted of this crime.



Dear Ms. Kaspar,

A puppy was reportedly beaten with a crowbar, then tied to the back of a vehicle and dragged. The owner had allegedly duct taped the dog’s muzzle beforehand. The puppy survived and managed to run free.

We, the undersigned, are calling on you to make sure that no other animal has to suffer this extreme violence. Please see to it that the owner is given the maximum possible penalty and banned from owning animals if found guilty.

UK: American Owner Of Uk Football Team Launches A Television Channel About Trophy Hunting – And Gets A Backlash From Many Including England Cricketers.


SAV Comment – Kevin Pietersen is a very well known England cricket player.  Well done him for speaking up in support of the animals and against hunting.

Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke branded ‘scum’ by Kevin Pietersen, who urges fans to ‘drive him’ out of the club

Exclusive: The American billionaire is facing a fierce backlash after launching a television channel that documents trophy killings of endangered animals

Kevin Pietersen has launched a fierce attack on Arsenal owner, Stan Kroenke, labelling the American “scum” after the company he owns launched a new television channel documenting barbaric bloodsports.

The former England cricketer, who is raising awareness about illegal poaching of rhinos in South Africa, has also called on Arsenal supporters to do everything they can to ensure majority shareholder Kroenke is “driven out” of the Premier League club.

Kevin Pietersen – A Voice Speaking Out Against Hunting.


“I find it sickening that anyone could want to endanger these animals whatsoever, but for someone to turn it into a TV show for entertainment absolutely boils my blood,” Pietersen exclusively told The Independent. “The guy, and those who contribute and support those practices, are scum.


“Enough is enough. These stunning animals are being slaughtered to the point of extinction and for anyone to celebrate it is absolutely repugnant.

“I’ve had so many messages from Arsenal fans telling me they hate him as much as anyone, so if that’s the case, he has to be driven out. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want this person representing something I love.”

These animals don’t have a voice, but we do.

If we don’t do anything, no-one will.

Kevin Pietersen


Kroenke faced a heavy backlash following revelations in The Times that his company, Kroenke Sport Entertainment, is responsible for the UK launch of My Outdoor TV [MOTV] through its entity Outdoor Sportsman Group.

The channel will screen shows that follow hunters across the globe, primarily in Africa where big-money hunting trips are available, and involve various ways of killing wild animals that includes by bow and arrows and by guns.

Arsenal owner launches ‘sickening’ bloodsports TV channel in the UK


One programme shows a presenter shooting a critically endangered African elephant before the bull turns and charges at him. Two more shots are heard before the animal falls to the ground and dies.

“There’s no other feeling in the world quite like walking up on your bull elephant,” the man says to the camera.

Another show, called Dark Continent Quest, features huntress Jana Waller and her travels across the world killing animals with a bow and arrow. One episode shows Ms Waller killing a hartebeest in South Africa, with the arrow hitting the animal before it runs away. Ms Waller and her guide, John Faul, wait for the animal to bleed to death before approaching it.

“It’s a good shot. Definitely, some liver and some lungs hit,” says Mr Faul while the animal is still alive.

Ms Waller adds “the shot was a little far back for me, but one shot did it,” before holding up the hartebeest’s “beautiful heart shaped horns”.

It has caused a wave of criticism aimed at Kroenke, particularly from Arsenal supporters given that the American billionaire owns 67 per cent of the club’s shares. The channel has also been dubbed the “Netflix of the hunting world” by its supporters, who are willing to pay $9.99 [£7.60] a month for the subscription.



  We divide every day “5000 by Friday”!!

We divide every day “5000 by Friday”!!

I don`t know how it goes to you every morning, but when I start the PC, my nerves get a hard blow. There is not a day when a new torture version of humans does not appear on animals on the Internet. We think we’ve seen it all, but every day we see cruelty that our eyes cannot bear. Because of these infinite human crimes against animals, the question arises:

Who is my fellow human being?

With whom do I live together?

But above all, I am tormented by the question: can I expect these people to change at some point?

Can I hope that I can win them through education, undercover documentation, information on the rights of animals?

And as paradoxical as it may seem, world-wide results in animal protection are often the result of an illogical and inconsistent basis.

I would like to share a personal experience:

It was a winter evening in 2011 in the pedestrian zone of the city, next to where I live. We had an info stand exclusively for signatures set up for the 8hours campaign. It was cold and there were few people. Suddenly I saw a very elegant lady, who came to see me from the department store.

She was wearing a fur coat and had an expensive leather bag. There was a Mc Donald Hamburger in her hand. “Give me the list, I want to sign, too,” she said, taking the pen.

Ha! I thought, “I do not have to beg!” The lady has signed. “Yes, but you also eat meat,” I said politely. “So what?” she said, “That I eat meat does not mean that animals must suffer”!

Oops !!

At this moment I thought of the joke with the psychiatrist:

The insane doctor asks his patient: “what is 2 and 2”?

He says: “5000”.

“Well, yes,” says the doctor, and he asks the next patient “what is 2 and 2”?

He says “Friday”.

Then the doctor asks the third one: “what is 2 and 2”?

And he answers: “4” !! “

Yes! And how did you get it? “

” Very easily! I’ve divided 5000 by Friday “!!


So, it is also in animal protection, the result counts. I estimate that 60 to 70% from the 1.2 million signers at th

at campaign, were carnivores. The illogical motives of these people have brought us 1.2 million votes!!

I think we need to develop a new mass strategy for animal protection. It is an illusion to believe that people do good only when they are logically and morally convinced.

My best regards to all




South Africa – EXPOSED: South Africa’s Barbaric Ostrich Slaughterhouses.



UK: 30/7/17 – Men and Horses Remembered at The Centenary Of The Battle of Passchendaele (Belgium)














The Battle of Passchendaele (German: Flandernschlacht, French: Deuxième Bataille des Flandres), also known as the Third Battle of Ypres, was a campaign of the First World War, fought by the Allies against the German Empire.[a] The battle took place on the Western Front, from July to November 1917, for control of the ridges south and east of the Belgian city of Ypres in West Flanders, as part of a strategy decided by the Allies at conferences in November 1916 and May 1917. Passchendaele lay on the last ridge east of Ypres, 5 mi (8.0 km) from a railway junction at Roulers, which was vital to the supply system of the German 4th Army.[b] The next stage of the Allied plan was an advance to ThouroutCouckelaere, to close the German-controlled railway running through Roulers and Thourout.

Further operations and a British supporting attack along the Belgian coast from Nieuwpoort, combined with Operation Hush (an amphibious landing), were to have reached Bruges and then the Dutch frontier. The resistance of the 4th Army, unusually wet weather, the onset of winter and the diversion of British and French resources to Italy, following the Austro-German victory at the Battle of Caporetto (24 October – 19 November), enabled the Germans to avoid a general withdrawal, which had seemed inevitable in early October. The campaign ended in November, when the Canadian Corps captured Passchendaele, apart from local attacks in December and the new year. In 1918, the Battle of the Lys and the Fifth Battle of Ypres were fought before the Allies occupied the Belgian coast and reached the Dutch frontier.

A campaign in Flanders was controversial in 1917 and has remained so. The British Prime Minister, David Lloyd George, opposed the offensive, as did General Ferdinand Foch the French Chief of the General Staff. Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig, commanding the British Expeditionary Force (BEF), did not receive approval for the Flanders operation from the War Cabinet until 25 July. Matters of dispute by the participants, writers and historians since the war, have included the wisdom of pursuing an offensive strategy in the wake of the Nivelle Offensive, rather than waiting for the arrival of the American Expeditionary Force (AEF) in France.

The choice of Flanders over areas further south or the Italian front, the climate and weather in Flanders, the choice of General Hubert Gough and the Fifth Army to conduct the offensive, debates over the nature of the opening attack and between advocates of shallow and deeper objectives, have also been controversial. The passage of time between the Battle of Messines (7–14 June) and the Battle of Pilckem Ridge (31 July, the opening move of the Third Battle of Ypres), the extent to which the internal troubles of the French armies motivated British persistence with the offensive, the effect of the weather, the decision to continue the offensive in October and the human cost of the campaign on the soldiers of the German and British armies, have also been argued over ever since.


Various casualty figures have been published, sometimes with acrimony but the highest estimates for British and German casualties appear to be discredited.[155] In the Official History, Brigadier-General J. E. Edmonds put British casualties at 244,897 and wrote that equivalent German figures were not available, estimating German losses at 400,000. Edmonds considered that 30 percent needed to be added to German figures, to make them comparable to British casualty criteria.[156] In 2007, Sheldon wrote that although German casualties from 1 June – 10 November were 217,194, a figure available in Volume III of the Sanitätsbericht (1934), Edmonds may not have included them as they did not fit his case. Sheldon recorded 182,396 slightly wounded and sick soldiers not struck off unit strength, which if included would make 399,590 German losses.[157] The British claim to have taken 24,065 prisoners has not been disputed.[158] In 1940, C. R. M. F. Cruttwell recorded 300,000 British casualties and 400,000 German.[159] Wolff in 1958, gave German casualties as 270,713 and 448,688 British.[160] In 1959, Cyril Falls estimated 240,000 British, 8,525 French and 260,000 German casualties.[161]

John Terraine followed Falls in 1963 but did not accept that German losses were as high as 400,000.[162] A. J. P. Taylor in 1972, wrote that the Official History had performed a “conjuring trick” on these figures and that no one believed these “farcical calculations”. Taylor put British wounded and killed at 300,000 and German losses at 200,000.[163] In 1977, Terraine argued that twenty percent needed to be added to the German figures for some lightly wounded men, who would have been included under British definitions of casualties, making German casualties c. 260,400. Terraine refuted Wolff (1958), who despite writing that 448,614 British casualties was the BEF total for the second half of 1917, neglected to deduct 75,681 casualties for the Battle of Cambrai, given in the Official Statistics from which he quoted or “normal wastage”, averaging 35,000 per month in “quiet” periods.[164] Prior and Wilson in 1997, gave British losses as 275,000 and German casualties at just under 200,000.[165] Hagenlücke in 1997, gave c. 217,000 German casualties.[57] Sheffield wrote in 2002, that Richard Holmes’s guess of 260,000 casualties on each side, seemed about right.



Spain / EU: The Torment And The Death – Supported By The EU Each Year – Money For Death – Why We HATE The EU !




Dear Mark,

On bullfighting I would like to say a few things. Perhaps this is known to most, or perhaps not. Known or not known, the bullfighting is not a tradition, is and remains cowardly murder.

Bull “fight”: animal cruelty and a billion-dollar business!

According to estimates by animal welfare organizations, the annual turnover of the bullfighting industry in Spain is between 1 and 2.5 billion euro. 200,000 jobs are procured in Spain, through the brutal execution of 40,000 bulls.

The professional groups that benefit from this massacre are many: Promoter of the events, simple bullfighting workers, up to the slaughterers, who later smash the sacrifice and sell as meat.

The breeding of the bulls and everything related to it must also be considered. They all want to participate in the big pot of the industry. In addition, bullfighting is a tourist attraction, such as paella and flamenco. The Spanish audience expects from a bullfight an especially good entertainment. One sits, one eats hamburger, and make calls with the cell phone, while down in the arena a living being is brutally massacred. Of the tourists, Americans and Japanese are the predominant proportion of bullfighting visitors. Most tourists go to the bullfight because they consider it a part of the country’s culture.

In 2013, the Spanish government protected the bullfight and since then this bloody massacre has been considered an ” immaterial cultural property ” in Spain. This was one of the greatest cultural shame in Spain, which has also led to economic corruption.

For EU agricultural subsidies, 130 million euros are earmarked each year for the breeders of bulls. 30 million comes from Germany.

The word bull “fight” is wrong, intentionally wrong. There is no fight between equal partners. It is not the battle of a bull against his fellow-species.

A bull is prepared in such a way that he loses the fight against a murder beforehand. The bull is kept in the dark for days before the massacre. Heavy weights are hung around his neck for weeks. To aggravate his vision even more, Vaseline is lubricated in his eyes. His nose is tamped with tampons to make him breathing harder, and needles are put into the testicles to “pinpoint” him with pain. And so they send the “equals” combat partner into the arena!

Where three acts of torture follow:

Act 1: Tercio de Varas (the third of the spit)

The first act is about the mutual learning of Matador and bull. Again and again the animal is wounded by the Picadors, the mounted helper of the bullfighter, with lances in the neck area and weakened by the blood loss. These targeted stitches in the neck of the bull make him lower his head more and more.

A preparation for the final act.

A Picador horse having suffered an injury from the bull

– horses also suffer in bullfights !

Act 2: Tercio de banderillas (The third of the banderillas) During the second act, sharp rods are stabbed into the shoulders of the Bull by Banderilleros.

This leads him to lose his strength and his aggression level continues to rise. A macabre game with the life of the beast, which is now beginning to struggle for his life.


Act 3: Tercio de Muerte (The third of death)

Now the Matador returns to the arena. There is a dance between Matador and his victim. With a deliberate push between the shoulders of the animal he tries to pierce the completely exhausted animal directly into the heart. The cleaner the better.

One has to imagine that the sword is completely inside of it and its organs are broken down. The bull does not fidget now, he is incapacitated, but fully conscious.


In this state the ears and the tail are cut off.

He is also dragged out of the arena by mules. Spanish bullfighting is not a tradition, it is an industry, an industry built on blood and torture.


And as long as these crimes are supported and financed by the EU, as long as the EU is doing corrupt business with bullfighting, animals are massacred and together with them, including civilization in Spain.


Best regards



The ‘masters of death’ – Tusk and Junker – EU officials turning the other way when it comes to animal abuse and suffering.


News Just In – 28/7/17.


Dear Mark — Founder ‘Serbian Animals Voice’,

Last year, you took action to urge the Spanish Balearic Islands to ban bullfights that subject bulls to cruelty in the name of entertainment.

Just this week, the Parliament of the Balearic Islands passed measures making it impossible for these cruel events to take place.

Because of your compassionate voice, bulls will no longer suffer and die in this community during cruel and outdated blood-sports.

This life-saving victory sends a message to the rest of Spain and the world that there is no future for bullfighting and that spectacles of animal cruelty belong in the past.

Thank you so much for taking action and for caring about animals.

New Zealand: Petition – Justice For Confined Pigs Jabbed In Heads With Pipes.



Take action via the following link:







Justice for Pigs Confined to Tiny Crates and Jabbed at With Pipes


Target: Nathan Guy, Minister for Primary Industries, New Zealand

Goal: End cruelty in the factory farming industry.

Pigs are seen confined to tiny crates and beaten with pipes in disturbing footage published by an undercover animal investigation. In an undisclosed pig farm in Waikato, New Zealand, footage taken by welfare organizations Farmwatch and Save Animals From Exploitation (SAFE) shows sows biting and struggling against farowing cages, or tiny cages designed to limit the movement of mother pigs so that they don’t roll over onto their piglets.

The video shows the sows unable to turn around or take more than a step in either direction, and barely able to lie down for weeks at a time. The shocking footage also shows piglets being pulled away from their screaming mothers and thrown into containers, as well as an employee using a feeding pipe to jab a sow in the head.

Unfortunately, this abuse is commonplace in the pig farming industry. These cruel cages are the industry standard, and animal abuse tends to run rampant in farms, where financial profit is often valued over the welfare of the animals.

The government recognized that farrowing crates are inhumane and a breach of New Zealand’s Animal Welfare Act, which requires animals to be able to engage in natural behaviors.

However, according to SAFE, new welfare standards put in place to remedy the cruelty only require a small amount of extra space in crates, still leaving sows unable to move or turn around.

These crates should be banned altogether, and increased punishments for animal cruelty by farm workers must be implemented. Demand that the New Zealand government make an effort to stop the cruelty rampant in the factory farming industry.


Dear Mr. Guy,

An undercover investigation of an undisclosed pig farm in Waikato has revealed shocking abuse. Pigs are seen confined to tiny cages, unable to move and barely able to lie down. They are seen struggling against their cages and being prodded and jabbed with feeding pipes. Unfortunately, this cruelty is commonplace in the pig farming industry.

Farrowing crates should be completely banned, and increased punishments for animal cruelty by farm workers must be implemented. We, the undersigned, demand that you implement new protections to stop the cruelty rampant in the factory farming industry.

EU / Spain: Bull kills itself after Spaniards tie burning torches to its horns in sickening video – and the EU; they do nothing just like always.


SAV Comment

– Here we go again; gutless EU politicians doing nothing to undertake the wishes of the EU citizens.  Instead, these brain deads simply hide and declare, “we can do nothing; it is Spanish tradition”.  So with EU funding; these animals continue to be tortured and abused, whilst EU politicians turn a blind eye to the suffering, whilst protecting the church and the ‘tradition’ that Spain is world famous for – that of causing abuse and suffering to many animals.  There are many hard working campaign groups in Spain, asking for change; but the dragknuckle EU and it masters do not wish to do what the people want.


Don’t we all recall the words of Donald Tusk – President of the European Council at the G20 meeting on 7/7/17 – his weasel words were:

 “words are easy but its actions that matter”

Mr. Tusk, regarding the EU improving the welfare of animals, you have no actions – you exist on a different planet named ‘Brussels’.  Have a read of the following Mr Tusk; oh no you are too busy rather than blabbering out your words which you hope will pacify all.

The animal had earlier gored a man during the ‘Bulls in the Street’ festival in Foios, near Valencia.

A terrified bull killed itself in a panic after Spanish festival organisers tied burning torched to its horns during at a celebration near Valencia, prompting outrage from animal rights campaigners.

The half-tonne creature found itself tied to a post in front of an enthusiastic crowd of several hundred townspeople during the ‘Bulls in the Street’ festival in Foios , a scaled-down version of Pamplona’s famous Running of the Bulls.

The animal freaked out when flaming stakes were tied to its horns and it was released from the post, which it then inadvertently charged into, killing itself instantly.

The crowd’s excitement turned to shock as the bull killed itself in front of their eyes, suggesting that they had not expected him to die this way.

The bull had gored a man in the leg earlier yesterday during an organised street run by local media, according to local media.

It is not known if this is the reason he was chosen for the evening’s festivities.

The footage was obtained by the group Bulls Defenders United and uploaded to Facebook on Sunday (23 July). It has since been viewed more than 150,000 times.

“How many lives will still be taken in the name of traditions that are nothing but barbarity?” the group said in a statement accompanying the video.

Supporters of the Bulls in the Street festival argue that the animals rarely suffer any harm and the tradition stretches back several hundred years.

However, Facebook users responded with a mix of anger and concern about animal rights inside the EU nation.

“I worked for a Spanish state-owned broadcast station, and I had to film several ‘corridas’. Seen only feet away, they’re not disgusting – they are absolutely horrific,” wrote Jorge Gea Gilabert.

“You can hear blood bubbling from open lung wounds. I didn’t like bullfighting, but since then I HATE It. Not all Spaniards like bullfighting,” he added.

Vicky Mena was more forthright, saying: “Spain needs a PURGE DAY to eliminate these subhuman parasites and their families. SPAIN IS DEPLORABLE!”

If you wish to see it, and it is sick; a video of the event should be available to watch by clicking on the following link.

Bedeutsamste Petition in der Geschichte des Tierschutzes an die Vereinten Nationen: Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit ächten – UN-Charta und Ressort für interkulturelle Ethik gefordert! UPDATE

Datum: 2017-07-26T13:24:35+0200

Von: “P.H. Arras” <info@akt-mitweltethik.de>



NUR diesen Link verbreiten, nicht den aus der Browserleiste, nachdem Ihr unterschrieben habt!!!

Dem sadistischen Irrsinn und der Lebensverachtung weltweit den Kampf ansagen – nur gemeinsam können wir erfolgreich sein!

Let us fight against sadistic madness and life contempt – only united can we be successful! (Text in Englisch im Anschluss (s.u.)!)

(Bitte überall verbreiten – auch ins Ausland!)


Liebe Unterstützer/innen,

in wenigen Tagen habt Ihr es geschafft, fast 40.000 Unterstützer/Innen für unsere historisch einmalige Petition gegen Verbrechen wider der Menschlichkeit weltweit an die Vereinten Nationen zu richten. Vielen Dank dafür!

Wir haben in der Tat Unterschriften und Kommentare aus allen Teilen der Welt – es ist phantastisch!

Deshalb haben wir unseren Petitionstext nicht nur in Englisch und Deutsch, sondern auch in Französisch und – in Kurzform auf Chinesisch gepostet, damit wirklich alle Menschen auf der Welt ihn lesen und unterstützen können. Für die spanisch sprechenden Regionen unserer Welt benötigen wir nun noch eine entsprechende Übersetzung – auch Portugiesisch, Thailändisch wäre hilfreich. Wer kann das für uns erledigen? Bitte meldet Euch unter info@akt-mitweltethik.de!

Wegen technischer Probleme bei change.org, die ausgerechnet unsere Petition betrafen, haben wir nun längere Zeit kein Update mehr verfasst. Deshalb ist die Teilnahme an unserer Petition nun leider erheblich abgeebbt. Das darf so nicht bleiben, denn wir müssen mindestens eine Million Unterschriften sammeln, damit die UN unserem so bedeutsamen Anliegen Beachtung schenkt.

Deshalb, bitte teilt und verschickt auch weiterhin diese Petition auf der ganzen Welt – auch nochmal an dieselben Empfänger, denen Ihr es schon einmal geschickt habt, denn die Diskrepanz zwischen denen, die unsere Petition aufgerufen haben und denen, die sie mit gezeichnet haben, ist beträchtlich. Lasst uns allen zeigen, was Globalisierung wirklich heißt, nämlich, dass wir es schaffen, eine starke weltweite Bewegung in Gang zu setzen von empathischen und ethisch motivierten Menschen, die nicht mehr länger zulassen, dass mutwillig begangene Grausamkeiten – ganz gleich gegenüber welcher Spezies – auf der Welt weiter begangen werden dürfen.

Lasst uns die Welt globalisieren bezüglich Humanität, Ethik und Mitgefühl mit allem Leben, denn es ist das elementarste Menschenrecht, auf einer harmonischen und friedfertigen Welt zu leben, die Unrecht, Grausamkeit und Ignoranz nicht duldet. Lasst uns diesbezüglich die UN in die Pflicht nehmen.

Und noch eine Bitte: Schreibt an change.org (info@changeverein.org) und bittet darum, unsere weltweite Initiative – unsere Petition – an alle Emailadressen zu schicken und die Unterstützung zu empfehlen, über die sie verfügt (es sind viele Millionen). Jeder anständige Mensch, der kein Sadist oder Tierhasser ist, kann und wird unsere Petition unterschreiben und weiterleiten – dessen bin ich mir sicher.

Es gibt in der heutigen Zeit so viel Grund zur Verzweiflung und Hoffnungslosigkeit, so vieles liegt im Argen, dass sich viele Menschen resigniert zurückziehen, anstatt die Initiative zu ergreifen. Unsere Petition ist ein realer Grund zur Hoffnung, damit unsere Welt endlich ein Ort des Respekts und der Achtung, der Liebe, Rücksichtnahme, des Wohlwollens und der Hilfsbereitschaft wird, in dem das Leben – gleich welcher Art – in seinem Wert geschätzt und beschützt wird und nicht mehr länger ausgebeutet, versklavt, gefoltert, erniedrigt und vernichtet.

Bitte, liebe Freunde/innen, gebt nicht auf, helft mir auch weiterhin, dass unsere gemeinsame Vision Wirklichkeit wird.


Euer Peter H. Arras



Let us fight against sadistic madness and life contempt – only united can we be successful!

Dear supporters,

in just a few days you will have managed to send almost 40,000 signatures to the United Nations (UN) in support of our historically unique petition against crimes against humanity. Thank you so much! There are signatures and comments from all parts of the word – it is absolutely fantastic!

Because of that we have now published the text of our petition not in English and German only, but there is a translation into French also and an abbreviated text in Chinese, so that more people in all the world can read and support it. For the Spanish speaking world we could do with a translation, too (or in Portuguese, or in Thai language etc.) – is there anybody volunteering to assist us? If yes, please kindly contact me at info@akt-mitweltethik.de!

Because of technical problems at the change.org platform, which of all things seems to have hit just us, we haven’t written any updates for a few days, and accordingly the participation in our petition has abated considerably. This must not remain so, because we must reach at least 1 million signatures to make the UN consider our demand which is so significant.

So, please let me ask you to send this petition everywhere – again to the same contacts as well, they might have been on holiday. And there is a discrepancy between those, who only read the petition and those, who have actually signed it. Let us show to them all, what globalization really means: to be able to start a worldwide movement driven by humans capable of empathy and compassion and motivated by ethics, people who do no longer accept, that wanton cruelties – committed to whichever species – are ignored and tolerated by the world community.

Let us globalize the world in humanitarian, ethical and compassionate terms concerning all forms of life, because it is the most elemental human right, to live in a world of peace and harmony, a world that does not tolerate injustice, cruelty and ignorance. Let us demand from the UN to do what is its duty!

And one more, please: Write to change.org (info@changeverein.org) and ask him, to send our worldwide initiative, our petition, to all the UN ambassadors and to recommend our petition to all the addresses they have (millions of them). Because every decent person, everybody who is not a sadist and not someone who hates animals, can sign and will sign our petition and pass it on – I am certain of that.

In our days there is so much reason for despair and hopelessness, there is so much bad going on, and many people just withdraw in resignation instead of taking initiative. Our petition is a reason for hope, that our world will eventually become a place of respect and love and thoughtfulness and goodwill and helpfulness and in which life – no matter of which form or species – will be appreciated and cherished and no longer exploited, enslaved, tortured, degraded and destroyed.

Dear friends, don’t give up, continue to help me to make our vision come true.

A Little Girl Loves A Big Elephant – Pooja & Shanti: Eine besondere Freundschaft The girl is called Pooja, and she was 6 years old when her father recorded this video. She is buying tomatoes for her friend Shanti. She does that every day when she is in India. But who is her friend Shanti? Shanti is an elephant, a temple elephant to be precise. Pooja ist ein mutiges Mädchens mit einem großen Herz für Tiere. Sie verbringt jedes Jahr die Wintermonate mit ihren Eltern in Indien. In einem Dschungelreservat lernt die sechsjährige Pooja, die Elefantendame Shanti kennen. Zwischen den beiden äußerlich so verschiedenen Wesen entsteht über viele Jahre eine wunderbare Freundschaft. Pooja lernt Shanti zu pflegen und für sie zu sorgen. Shanti erwidert diese Zuneigung auf vielerlei Art. Als Pooja sechs Jahre alt war, haben ihre Eltern einige Szenen gefilmt und uns das Material für diese Dokumentation zur Verfügung gestellt.

Gesendet: Montag, 24. Juli 2017 um 23:16 Uhr Von: Tierschutz-Direkt <office@tierschutz-direkt.at> Betreff: Neues Tierschutzgesetz 2017 in Österreich – Todesurteil für hilfsbedürftige Tiere und ein Affront gegen Tierschutzvereine, Tierschützer und Tierfreunde

bitte mitmachen und weiterleiten Neues Tierschutzgesetz 2017 in Österreich – Todesurteil für hilfsbedürftige Tiere und ein Affront gegen Tierschutzvereine, Tierschützer und Tierfreunde EIN UNFASSBARER WAHNSINN !!! Die Novelle des Tierschutzgesetzes ist eine VERHÖHNUNG für alle Tierschutzvereine in Österreich, die sich EHRENAMTLICH verzweifelt darum einsetzen, die Zahl der Tiere durch Kastrationen zu reduzieren. Unsere Arbeit wird blockiert durch die Verbote der Tierinserate auf den Internetplattformen. Im Sinne des neuen Tier”schutz”gesetzes dürfen jetzt die Vermehrer weiter produzieren und inserieren auf den Internetplattformen und die wahren Tierschützer sind derzeit gesperrt, sofern sie keine Tierheime und Betriebsstätten vorweisen können. Sind das unsere Tierschutzvertreter in der Politik?! Jeder vernünftige tierliebende Mensch würde das nicht zulassen!! Das neue Tier”schutz”gesetz verbietet vielen kleinen Tierschutzvereinen ihre Arbeit, nämlich das Vermitteln von Streunertieren oder Tieren in Not in gute Pflege. Neben Züchtern dürfen übrigens auch Landwirte weiterhin im Internet z.B. auch Katzen zum Verkauf anbieten, die sie auf ihrem Hof züchten. Die Kastrationspflicht wurde einfach aufgehoben. Und die so entstehenden Streunertiere, die die Tierschutzvereine einsammeln, um ihnen zu helfen, dürfen von letzteren nicht mehr vermittelt werden. Man bekommt das Gefühl, dieses neue Tierschutzgesetz ist absichtlich mit Hass und Verachtung gegenüber Tierschutzarbeit geschrieben. WIR SAGEN NEIN zu einem Gesetz, das unsere Haustiere einfach verantwortungslos behandelt. Sagen auch Sie: NEIN! … indem Sie sich informieren und unsere Initiative(n) unterstützen. Details zu diesem Wahnsinn finden Sie auf: www.neuestierschutzgesetz.at Bitte ladet all eure Freunde zu dieser Seite ein… https://www.facebook.com/Neues-Tierschutzgesetz-2017-in-Österreich-483111085414114/ Schreiben Sie an die Medien in Österreich, um diesen Wahnsinn zu kippen: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=490169071374982&id=483111085414114 Wenn Sie protestieren wollen, warum nicht direkt beim zuständigen Ministerium anrufen, und diese Damen und Herren mal spüren lassen, was sie von solchen tierfeindlichen Maßnahmen halten?

Einladung zum 2. Tierrechtsgipfel-Deutschland Liebe Tierfreundinnen und Tierfreunde, liebe Mitstreiterinnen und Mitstreiter, am 04. August 2017 findet in Aschau im Chiemgau unser 2. Tierrechtsgipfel statt. Hier werden wir auf die politischen Vertreterinnen und Vertreter verschiedener Parteien, Landwirten und Jägern treffen, die wir auf Missstände in der Tierhaltung und andere wichtige Anliegen aufmerksam machen und zum Handeln auffordern werden. Es geht nicht um uns, sondern um die Tiere, deren Stimme wir sind. Uns ist bewusst, dass jede Tierschutzorganisation ihre eigenen Prioritäten hat und es in der Vergangenheit deshalb Unstimmigkeiten gegeben hat. Es werden aber auch immer mehr Stimmen lauter, die unser einheitliches Handel nicht nur fordern, sondern für den Erfolg unserer Ziele unabdingbar halten. Deshalb möchten wir Euch einladen, mit uns zusammen gemeinsame Argumente und Ziele festzulegen sowie Einheitlichkeit und Geschlossenheit demonstrieren. Bitte gebt uns schnell Bescheid, ob Ihr dabei seid. Wer am 4.August 2017 nach Aschau im Chiemgau kommen will, sollte sich möglichst bald anmelden.

SAVE THE DATE: Bundesweiter Aktionstag am 16. September 2017 vom Bündnis “Reichtum umverteilen – ein gerechtes Land für alle!”

Liebe Unterstützer*innen,

Das Bündnis „Reichtum umverteilen – ein gerechtes Land für alle!” ruft zum bundesweiten Aktionstag am 16. September 2017 auf.

Knapp eine Woche vor der Bundestagswahl wollen wir unseren Forderungen noch mal laut, kreativ und bunt Gehör verschaffen und laden alle herzlich ein, mitzumachen.

Eurer Kreativität sind keine Grenzen gesetzt. Für Inspiration zu Aktionen könnt ihr aber gerne einen Blick in unseren Aktionsleitfaden werfen. Schließt euch mit Gleichgesinnten zusammen und organisiert bei euch vor Ort eigene Aktionen, Veranstaltungen, Kundgebungen/Demonstrationen oder Flashmobs. Vielleicht gibt es in eurer Gegend sogar schon lokale Strukturen und/oder Ansprechpartner*innen? Eine Übersicht findet ihr auf unserer Webseite. Eure Aktionen am 16. September und natürlich auch um den Termin herum, könnt ihr auf unserer Webseite in den Terminkalender eintragen. Wir bemühen uns, eure Aktionen auf Social Media zu verbreiten.

Auch wir auf Bundesebene planen eine bunte Aktion in Berlin, die sehr gerne in eurer Region/ Stadt nachgeahmt werden kann. Unter dem Motto „Wir fangen schon mal an: Superheld*innen verteilen um“, laden wir alle Superheld*innen der Umgebung um 12 Uhr zum Bundestag ein, um von dort symbolisch das Geld dahin umzuverteilen, wo es dringen benötigt wird – in die Kitas, Krankenhäuser, Jugendeinrichtungen, Schulen, bezahlbaren Wohnraum usw. Kurz vor der Wahl möchten wir die Politiker/-innen noch mal daran erinnern, dass genug Geld da ist, es braucht nur den Mut, es sich zu holen. Zur Superheld*in zu werden ist ganz leicht, ein paar Tipps zur Verwandlung findet ihr auf dem Foto im Anhang.

Egal für welche Aktion ihr euch entscheidet, ihr könnt dazu reichlich Aktionsmaterial (Comics, Flyer, Poster usw.) auf unserer Webseite bestellen und unter die Leute bringen. Außerdem freuen wir uns, wenn ihr uns im Anschluss zur Veröffentlichung Fotos von euren Aktionen zukommen lasst, damit wir die Vielfalt aller Aktionen und Unterstützer*innen publik machen können. Und natürlich reichlich Twittern nicht vergessen: #reichtumumverteilen

Wir freuen uns sehr, wenn ihr dabei seid und den Aktionstag bekannt macht.

Für den Arbeitsausschuss des Bündnisses

Sophie Schwab und Janina Trebing

UK: Cows’ milk CAN be branded ‘inhumane’ after ‘landmark’ ruling for vegan campaigners.




Cows’ milk CAN be branded ‘inhumane’ after ‘landmark’ ruling for vegan campaigners

VEGANS may brand milk production “inhumane” after the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruled in favour of an activist group’s anti-dairy campaign.

The ruling has caused fury among dairy farmers, who have branded the advert, placed in national newspapers, “misleading”.

But vegan campaigners have said the ruling proves their claim that milk production involves cruelty to young cattle.

It is estimated more than 540,000 vegans now live in Britain, up from 150,000 ten years ago.




Switzerland: News From Venus Re Hunting.


Dear Mark,


I received this pleasing information a few days ago and wanted to make it public.

It is about an initiative of the Swiss animal party to bribe hobby hunting and to organize forest guardians for nature and animals in the forest.

In Canton Geneva is the private hunting since 9. Mai 1974 prohibited. It is replaced by the so-called administrative hunting in which the hunting duties of cantonally hunted hunters, the gamekeepers are concerned.


I translate the article from the Wild Animal Protection Society:


On Tuesday, July 18, 2017, the Swiss Animal Party (TPS) submitted the national initiative “gamekeeper instead of hunters” to the canton of Zurich.

Over 7,000 signatures have been collected. Now, the Zurich voters will decide whether the wild animals in the canton of Zurich will be professionally supervised by a modern game management and thus the hobby-hunting will be abolished as leisure pleasure

“The popular saying ‘To care and to tend’, which is popular among hunters, for the justification of a bloody hobby is an old myth”, says the co-founder and president of the Swiss Animal Party (TPS) Monika Heierli-Rutishauser, “today it is scientifically proven that nature regulates itself.

This statement is confirmed by a variety of positive experiences in regions which are free of hunting grounds, including the Wild conservation region of the city of Zurich.

It is now known that the hunting of the wild animals does not lead to a regulation of the stock, but is the cause of the problem, since the fertility (birthrate) of the wild animals increases by the hunt!


The initiative demands that the stock of wild animals be given the opportunity to regulate themselves in the future, and therefore relies on modern, supportive wildlife management by professionally trained gamekeepers. This will abolish today’s hobby-hunting, and will lead to various positive effects, as can be read in the initiative text and its explanation.


My best Regards to you and all

Australia: Campaign Victory – The Governor of Bali has signed a ruling to end the brutal dog meat trade.

Mark, something historic just happened.

The Governor of Bali has signed a ruling to end the brutal dog meat trade. With the careful stroke of his pen, he sealed a kinder, safer future for dogs on the island. As you read this email, I want you to know that you were one of the people who made this victory for dogs possible.

See how you helped…


When an Animals Australia investigator first infiltrated dog meat gangs in Bali, the cruelty suffered by dogs was largely hidden. He captured evidence of immense suffering, and revealed that tourists were unwittingly fuelling the trade, making our responsibility to these animals even greater.

I write to you today with absolute gratitude. Because of you, the bamboo crates that once confined frightened dogs for days on end will soon be empty. Your critical role in this campaign means that the days of dogs being poisoned, beaten and strangled for their meat will end. Your unwavering support of our work, and faith in our strategies, has ensured that once again dogs will peacefully co-exist in Balinese communities — as they had done for centuries. You’ve been part of a team effort for animals, like no other.

Since we released the results of our investigation, a staggering 170,000 people from 159 countries have signed our petition appealing to the Governor to help dogs in Bali.

In a landmark Summit just two weeks ago, we brought together government officials, health authorities, tourism bodies and community leaders, achieving universal acceptance — for the very first time — that the dog meat trade should end. The relentless efforts of our Veterinary Director on the ground in Bali have been supported by thousands of individuals, who’ve demonstrated that when good people work together on behalf of animals, extraordinary things can happen.

You’ve helped Animals Australia make history in Bali.

For now, our work there continues and there is still much to be done. With the continued support of our members, we are committed to staying the course in Bali to see this commitment become a reality, and working towards broader change for all animals on the island. What our investigations into the dog meat trade have again reinforced are the risks faced by animals when they are seen as nothing more than a food source. Our vision is for a world where all animals are treated with compassion and respect, and are free from cruelty. In Bali — and well beyond — thank you for helping us make this vision a reality.

Please take a moment to watch this uplifting video and celebrate this milestone for animals with us 🙂

For the animals,

Lyn White AM Investigations Director

  1. Sadly, the risks to animals in any country only increase when they are hidden from public view. Whether on board live export ships, inside factory farms, or out of sight in slaughterhouses — your donation today will help Animals Australia’s investigators be where animals need them most.



UK: Government Just Banned Microbeads – Excellent News For Marine Wildlife.

This is huge – the UK government has banned ocean-polluting microbeads!

Microbeads are tiny pieces of plastic that are found in products ranging from toothpastes to face scrubs. They go down the plughole and end up in our oceans and waterways, where they can be mistaken for food by fish.

When this campaign started back in January 2016, hardly anyone had heard of microbeads (including me!)

But with your help, these tiny plastic polluters became a massive issue. Over 385,000 of you signed Greenpeace UK’s biggest petition yet, calling for the UK government to ban microbeads. Thousands of you emailed your MPs, posted on social media and shared your ideas for microbead alternatives.

Microbeads went from being virtually unknown, to being talked about by everyone from government ministers to celebrities – they even made it onto the front pages of national newspapers!

Hundreds of thousands of us came together, alongside organisations like the Marine Conservation Society, Fauna and Flora International and the Environmental Investigations Agency, to make real change happen.

 The UK government’s ban is the strongest in the world to date. It’s not yet perfect, but crucially the government have left the door open to broaden the ban in future – and we’ll be keeping a close eye on them to make sure this happens!

There are still many threats facing our oceans – from climate change to overfishing to plastic bottles – but with your help, we’ll continue to take action to protect our precious oceans for years to come.

Thanks so much for all you do,

Alice & the Oceans team
