From Our Compass – I’m Scared and I Don’t Want to Die.

We want to share this video which has been sent to us by Stacey at:

https://our-compass.org/

Our Compass incorporates the philosophy of non-human and human animals to be free from exploitation, speciesism, and suffering.

Our Compass is a non-violent group for advancing and aspiring vegans. We espouse the abolition of speciesism and protection of the Earth. Anyone who embraces these ideals along with veganism, and who also rejects homophobia, racism, patriarchy, and sexism is invited to participate.

Our Compass will publish alerts, articles, essays, and information – including letters and petitions.

Stacey says – Please note that this video is not “visually” graphic; it depicts the moments before a cow is killed. He waits for his death in fear, sadness, and terror, not knowing or understanding what he did to deserve such a painful existence and indifferent death. I wonder that, too.

 

Ecuador: Waorani`s victory against oil companies!

The Ecuadorian Waoranis tribe is celebrating a court ruling that blocks access to oil companies that have been trying for years to oil in the Amazon.

The government of Ecuador had released about 180,000 hectares for oil drilling.

Although the state of Ecuador possessed the mineral wealth, it had to first discuss plans for a possible use of resources with indigenous groups, the court said after a two-week trial and there was a request by the Waorani.

 

The government of Ecuador reached an agreement with the Waorani on the search for oil in 2012, but the Waorani declared in court that they had been deceived.
As a result, the court ordered new talks to transpose the provisions of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (CIDH) based in Costa Rican San José.
As already written, a historic victory, but against this decision the government of Ecuador can and will proceed.

“Our territory gives us life. We will not allow oil drilling to poison our streams and our fishing areas.
We will not allow explosives to be placed in our hunting grounds for earthquake testing.
The construction of railway tracks, pipelines or roads is not permitted. We do not realize what the government calls oilblock 22. Our woodland is not an oil block, it is our life “- said the Waorani in an open letter >>>

In the northeastern part of the Amazon Basin in Ecuador is one of the last large jungle areas of the earth whose vast biodiversity has been largely preserved.

Yasuní National Park has a single hectare of forest that is as diverse as the Mexican, US and Canadian communities. In 1989 the area was declared a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco.

We are very happy and congratulate the brave fighters!!

Peni and his mother

 

 

This is the little orangutan boy Peni and his mother. They are victims of deforestation.
They were evicted from their homes because their palm oil habitat was destroyed.

Excavators have driven them out!

They fled and were hungry, so out of desperation they came to a village of people.

There they were captured and tied up.

Manor rather a remarkable depiction of the worst of our speciestook only 16 years to destroy half of the orangutans on the island of Borneo!

Not until March did a small baby orangutan die of hunger after the mother was shot with 74 bullets.
For three days, the lumberjacks chased the orangutan mother and shot her straight in the eye. The animal went blind, because the poachers shot targeted at his eyes. The doctors found four bullets in the left eye and two in the right.

Nevertheless, and luckily, Gamekeepers who found them were able to save the adult but not the one month old baby. It died of an infection caused by malnutrition because his mother could not breastfed him anymore.

The little Peni is lucky, they were rescued by the NGO International Animal Rescue, which also works in Indonesia!
It breaks our heart when you have to look at these pictures.

My comment: Man does not evolve.
Obviously, a moral change in the consciousness of the human species is not subject to an evolutionary autopilot.
In other words, what we did not understand centuries ago can not be understood today too.

That animals are not our slaves, not our food, not our torture objects.

We no longer burn witches, because the term is abolished.
We do not gas any Jews in crematoria because criminal racism is prohibited
We do not throw away disabled children, as in Sparta, because children have rights.
And yet: one still lives on the tree in terms of morality towards the animals
Underdeveloped, smug assholes, that’s us.

My best regards, Venus
