Why I feel disgusted with the human species.

1. Speciesism

Humans have turned sentient life into products. Here are a few who we exploit, torture and execute.
Land Animals bred for food:

It is estimated between 70-100 billion land animals are bred to be brutally slaughtered every single year


Chickens are the biggest victim in this masacre at approx 66 billion a year.


Second in line are pigs. 1.5-2 billion pigs are killed for food each year.


More than 550 million sheep are killed for food each year.
Most of these are just a few months old.


Approximately 300 + million cows are killed for food every each year.

Along side these gentle creatures are many others, ducks, turkeys, geese, goats & all the wild animals we shoot & destroy in the name of sport. Plus those we breed to cover ourselves in their skins & fur.

Yet Vegans are labelled extreme.

We must End Speciesism #Vegan

Speciesism Part 2: Marine Life

It is estimated that up to 3 trillion fish are caught from the wild & killed globally every year: This doesn’t include the billions of fish that are farmed. Fish account for 40% of animal products consumed Image
Fish farming is forecast to overtake wild-caught fish production in 2021: For context, farmed fish accounts for 70% of all farmed animals worldwide. This presents a host of problems. For example, shrimp farming has led to the destruction of three million acres of coastal wetlands Image
Like all captivity of sentient life fish farming is creating disease. This ends up in the wider ecosystem damaging and polluting wildlife. Image
