Do you think that’s bad? Don’t eat it! “

A very good article from ntv

The corona outbreak in a Tönnies slaughter factory in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany,  brought up the pictures that nobody really wants to see.
Animals that just stumbled anxiously over the truck ramp now hang on hooks and bleed from their cutthroats.

The bodies are cut, sorted, and packed on the assembly line. Just as disturbing are the images of people who kill animals for their wages, cut them up, sort innards, and ultimately turn living organisms into cheap food.

It is literally a  job that hits the bones – psychologically and physically – that takes place in halls where there is hardly any daylight, where animal cries can be heard and which smells of blood and guts.
And it is an open secret in the industry that many workers numb their pain with a lot of alcohol after work.

No, nobody wants to see these pictures.

And if they do appear, the guilty parties are quickly found: it is either the slaughtering companies – in the current case, Tönnies, because after all the pictures come from there – or politics, after all, the legislature allows something like that.

Neither is completely wrong. By far the most influential factor is YOU, the consumer.

And I mean…This earth has 7 billion meat-eaters. They live without any moral basis or principle in terms of animal rights: the one lacks knowledge, the other lacks education, the third lacks will, and the majority lacks all these together!

The majority of this society suffers from political apathy and irresponsibility; The average carnivore fears nothing more than changing their habits, despite so much information.

Information is not missing, the action is missing.

On the other side, there is a highly corrupt and well-organized system that works hand in hand with the meat mafia, creating a hard front against our struggle for the rights of the animals.

The meat industry is an oligarch system that governs worldwide; this system is very powerful and very adaptable, its methods are similar to that of the mafia.

Theoretically, it is true that the consumer has the power to beat this system, but this power is weakened by propaganda, false information, and cheap offers.

We should, therefore, be aware that only if we stay united, act together, fight together, we have a chance to abolish animal suffering.
It doesn’t help to say that they are the bad guys, we are the good guys.

It is about developing a common strategy against this structural violence, against this cannibalistic moral system, which sees and exploits animals (and sometimes also humans) as slaves.

Our experience shows that with solidarity in demos, education, direct actions, undercover investigations and systematic confrontation with legal means against this system has brought many times significant changes for the animals.

Horse Riding: don’t use your friends

Most people who go horse riding do it because they love horses. They enjoy the joint movement, make sure that the animals do not injure themselves as much as possible, and take good care of them by feeding them and keeping them and their stables clean.

Nevertheless, the question often arises at some point: Can riding be compatible with love for animals at all?

In a perfect world, horses would live in freedom and no one would ask them anything. Horses are herd animals that live together in large groups in the wild, graze in meadows, travel long distances, and woo each other.

They have their very own needs and interests, and none of them is carrying someone around on their back.

This decision is made by people alone.

And I mean…The deep affection of many riders for their horses is a wonderful feeling, they would never want to harm their horse. Riding and cruelty to animals? Unimaginable for some riders!!! Quite a few hobby riders eat vegetarian or vegan and are involved in animal protection

Unfortunately, far too often it is not possible to really do justice to a riding horse.

Humans tend to give animals human characteristics. They think that with love and gentleness, the horse voluntarily agrees to ride.

But a stable, small pasture and a lot of love cannot really replace a horse’s freedom – the herds and the expanse that meet its needs

Unfortunately what most hobby riders do not know is that riding horses often leads to illnesses.
Not only a rider who is too heavy but also the stance inboxes and the lack of freedom of movement (fenced pasture, without herd structure) damage the horse in the long term.

Musculoskeletal disorders and feeding-related diseases (e.g. laminitis) can often be directly or indirectly attributed to the use of the horse.

And thus even the closest relationships between man and horse end at the slaughterhouse when the horse is no longer suitable for riding. It loses the purpose that was intended for it.

A visit to the horse slaughter shows how many horses die because their skeleton is bent and their hooves are inflamed and their nature is atrophied.

Because they were loved as a “mount” and later simply disposed of.

The love for horses can also be experienced without using the animals – for example in one of the countless sanctuaries for old horses.

There you can also volunteer if you really love horses.
