Dear @zomato & @Swiggy,

Despite the constant rise in cases of #dogbites across India, both #central & respective #state govts are silent & not bothered.

Humane slaughter. We hear it all the time.

But what does it really mean? Via @animalprojectau 🧵

#Vegan #AnimalRights #GoVegan #Beef #Dairy Image showing a traditional slaughter line. In order:  Laira
Forgetting non-stun processes for a moment, most know that the majority of slaughterhouses in Australia use "stunning" (the rendering of the animal insensible). In fact, this is the basis upon which slaughter of animals is heralded as "humane". But do you know what the failure……
Field study estimates of efficacy of bolt gun stunning for cows vary from 2% to 0.1% failure (including those found by a revered consultant to the Meat and Livestock industry, Dr Temple Grandin). That sounds pretty good right! Statistics are very good for whitewashing horrific……

You never hear of #animalrights activists having empathy with their counterparts in India, even when those animal rights activists are kileld for their efforts at protecting cows…
In India doing the exact same animal rights activism as in the western nations earns the tag of being right-wing Hindu fascists. In this upside-down situation #AnimalCruelty is lauded as #secularism
The same anti-Hindu media which support cow slaughter in India then warn how eating beef is contributing to #globalwarming and #climatechange…

Sr Adv Kapil Sibal brings arguments for the State of Tamil Nadu government.

*Correction: begins arguments

Sibal: Domestication of animal itself is painful, but what is prohibited is unnecessary pain. We are dealing with the rights of all these animals, the Act is to regulate the conduct not of the animal but humans towards them.

Meet Delilah, one of the starved down mares we rescued with her foal, from Thursday's auction. Thanks to the loving donations of wonderful people, (& NO thanks to the kill buyer who ran the bids up obscenely high 🤬), we were able to bring this poor mare & her 3 - 4 month old-
old colt, Bodie, home to our rescue.Delilah is skin & bones everywhere but her round belly, which is clearly full of worms. We have to be very careful with deworming her so we don't kill off too many worms at once and possibly lose Delilah. We have her on a re-feeding program- Image
where we feed her many small meals of alfalfa, tifton hay and complete feed nuggets around the clock. We can't overload her body with too much food at once; her digestive tract and her organscannot handle free choice hay like all the other rescue horses here at the ranch enjoy.- Image

Die neue #Landesregierung in #Berlin hat es zugelassen, dass haushohe Platanen gefaellt wurden, welche das einzige Stück Grün für die dortigen Bewohner war & natürlich für #Voegel

Darin zeigt sich hoechste Ignoranz angesichts von #Klimakrise & #Wohnungsnot!

#Stadtplanung #WBM
#Warum soll das Bauen ein Ausdruck von #Ignoranz gegenüber einer #Wohnungsnot darstellen?

Aus mehreren Gründen.

1. Die #Wohnungsnot ist systemisch, das heißt sie wird eben nicht durch Bauen, Bauen, Bauen gelöst, sondern teilweise durch das #Bauen forciert.

Stichwort #Leerstand
Da sich mit jedem #Neubau e. #Renditemaximierung verspricht - was seit der #Privatisierung des #Wohnungsbaus alleinige Motivation für d. Tun darstellt - hat dies zur Herausbildung v. Fehlanreizen geführt:
Es werden bewusst #Immobilien nicht mehr saniert & in #Leerstand ueberführt

The Reason We Do What We Do….
This little 6 month old boy was at Kaufman Killpen all alone, scared & unhandled. When we saw him we just couldn’t look away. We knew we had to get him out of there & fast. Once we got him out of there he spent time in quarantine & has made it home.
I had the opportunity to meet this sweet boy this past weekend where he and I formed a bond of love and trust. I am humbled by the bond I formed with him. The peace and calm I felt from bonding with him was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
I walked into his pen with another member of the rescue and he handed me his lead rope. I stood there quietly waiting for him to see that all I wanted was to love him and not hurt him. I stood next to him, waiting for him to feel the love I had for him.

Remember how we told you last week how much we hate the Slaughter Pipeline of auctions that horses are forced to endure? Horses are forced into auctions all over the country, heading south to Texas with the final destination being a trip to a kill pen or a
(*Part 1)
slaughterhouse in Mexico, if they don't bring their horse tradrr or kill buyer owner enough money at auction. They are crammed onto overloaded cattle trailers. Imagine the mini horses, foals & weanlings, getting trampled on by the big horses.....this is WHY we feel so
passionately about saving as many miniature horses, foals and weanling horses as we can from auctions. With your help, we will save the minis who are injured, have problems & who are depressed & giving up & orphans, foals & weanlings. Our newest save is an example.

Do you see this poor horse? Sadly tonight, we will probably see him at the auction again.💔 He is stuck in the "slaughter pipeline," purchased by a horse trader who will continue to take him from auction to auction, exploiting him, trying to get the price he wants.😭
(*Part 1)
The first time we saw this poor boy, was at an auction over 2 months ago. He was fat and shiny and looked well cared for.❤ He did not sell, the trader wanted too much money for him.😭 Each time we see him at the auctions, his condition looks worse.😭
(*Part 2)
We would love to get him out of the pipeline of misery but we do not have $2,000 to save him.😭 This breaks our hearts seeing a once vibrant pony riding a child around in a halter, change to dull, thinner & sunburned with a chain & bar across his nose to control him💔

at least until they go fully plant based.

Islam and veganism: A thread 👇

I have been vegetarian for 11 years and mostly vegan for 5 years, and converted to Islam 4 years ago.
My main reason is that the life of an animal feels more valueable to me than eating meat, and I feel compassion and mercy for animals. 1/
In historic times, there were places and situations where eating meat was necessary for survival, where plant food usable by humans was rare, like in desert or tundra environments, or where famines broke out. In these situations, slaughtering animals and eating them for 2/
survival was a "lesser evil" as compared to letting humans starve. In our situation nowadays however, we can easily live vegan, and animal slaughter is no longer necessary for survival. There are plenty of plant foods available, and we can easily have a healthy vegan diet 3/

Good news! Relying on key decisions in our US chimpanzee & elephant rights cases, the Islamabad High Court in Pakistan has “without any hesitation” affirmed the legal rights of elephants & other nonhuman animals. As a result, elephant #Kaavan will finally be freed to a sanctuary. Image
Justice Athar Minallah's decision is a light gleaming out from the cracks in the legal wall that has long separated humans from all other animals. Slowly but surely, with persistence on the part of all who fight for #animalrights, that wall is crumbling:… Image
May the NY and CT courts, who have in their hands the fates of elephants Happy and Minnie (both, like Kaavan, held in solitary confinement) soon follow suit to #FreeHappy and #FreeMinnie. Congratulations @0waisawan, @ftwglobal, and @cher on your hard-fought victory for Kaavan! ⚖️ Image

NhRP Development Director Mickey Suzuki's path to nonhuman #animalrights advocacy started with her parents, who taught her to treat all living beings with kindness and respect. They were the ones who instilled in her a love for nonhuman animals (1/4) Image
especially her dad who grew up on a small farm in Japan and always told stories of caring for his family's goats, horses, and a little chick who'd follow him around while he'd do his chores. Mickey was (and still is) always in awe of how animals gravitate toward her dad; (2/4)
the running joke in their family is that he is their Dr. Dolittle.

Growing up in Australia, Mickey was always surrounded by nature and native animals, so it was important to her parents to teach her from an early age how to share their home and surrounding spaces (3/4)

When NhRP Communications Director @LaurenChoplin was in first grade, she and her two sisters pleaded with their parents to let them keep a dog they'd found on the street and brought home in a wheelbarrow. After no one claimed the dog at the shelter, their parents relented.
At first, the dog peed on the carpet and chased the cats, worrying Lauren's parents. However, with time and lots of love, Molly quickly adjusted to life in her new household.
One of Lauren's most vivid childhood memories is of crouching on the floor alone with Molly, who'd become ill, and imagining she could use her hands and tears to magically take away Molly's sickness.

This is a second thread for #white #vegans & #animalrights activists who recognize we are often the problem in the way we articulate issues having to do with the other animals. What if white privilege has influenced the way we have framed issues around veganism and animal rights?
This is a part of journal entry from the early 1980s when I was involved in a very difficult battle around integrated housing and racism. I wrote “Racists who do not see that they are being racist. If this is true as a paradigm—racists do not see racism... Image
...what is there about me that is racist but I fail to see it?"
I tried to learn a methodology for confronting that racism that goes unacknowledged: Assume your own ignorance & if you have received feedback that something you said or did or endorsed was racist—hear the critique.
