A thread.

From one Vegan to anyone who cares.

I have see a lot in my 58 years

Things have moved me & things have disgusted me

The latter lately more than ever

The beauty of life keeps me sane 🦋
36 years ago I gave up eating animals and walked a lone path.

I have been ridiculed and called all sorts.

I have stuck to this path regardless.

I have made mistakes & we learn from experiencing all that we are not.
I have met people on the way who have walked with me and those who have walked into me.

I have met great thinkers and idiotic fools.

I have met the selfless and the selfish.

Every encounter has formed who I am

Nature is the love of my life
A year ago I met someone who literally left me standing in awe.

The reason is because she was the first person I have ever met in my entire life who has no ego.

She has put everything else before herself.

I can honestly say that this is quite rare
Sasha Bennet at Beneath The wood Sanctuary is to me what Veganism is all about.

For a woman to rescue 91 pigs is beyond words.

I don't think I could not do it. Could you?

This is her life now. Every day for the next 15 or so years.
I am writing this to you if you have got this far in this thread to imagine this life.

I think we should all help Sasha don't you.

Some of us hatched a plan for many of us to help her.

A special feed Club to ensure the feed for the 91 pigs.

We made it cheap just £2.50 $3.48
Who will miss that amount?

We even created a Superhero Pig to help us help Sasha.

Please join us. Every penny goes to feed all these piggies, if not us then who will feed them all?

Thank you 🙏

A thread please read.

Let's talk about rescuing large amounts of animals from disgusting farms.

Would you support the rescue of all of these pigs? Image
There is one incredible person on here who has done just that.

The 91 pigs she rescued though were in a worse state than the image above.

They had to stand with the dead and wait for their turn. Image
As a vegan I find the relentless day in and day out images of suffering sickening don't you?

But do we give a thought to those who have been saved?

Can we help them for the rest of their days? Here are some of them. Image

LET'S SHOW THE WORLD that as a community we can unite to collectively feed a herd of pigs rescued from a disgusting pig unit.

Why am I doing this every single day? What's in it for me?

I am doing this because I am a vegan & I want to end animal agriculture. I want ALL animals rescued & placed in safe homes. I want total animal liberation.

There is nothing in this for me, because it is about them.
So here we have a situation.

91 pigs were rescued from one of these hellish places.

We have collectively built them a wonderful home.

But now they need to be fed. Who is going to do this?

The government? Fat chance of that.

So we have created an idea 💡

Dear vegans

A thread.

Every day we fight to end animal suffering.

Meat eaters say ‘but if we did not eat animals we would either be overrun or they would go extinct. We know this story.
So what is the reality?

We know they would no longer be bred and supply would go down.
But what of those who are left and those who are rescued and taken to safety?

A thread... I know that many people out there will be thinking... Oh no is this Gina asking for money again🙄. I know that many just ignore my messages & scroll past. That's ok. The likes and retweets on the whole go to food & fluffyness or horrific images.
It is understandable in many ways because we want to see nice things and we want to eat nice food. This is juxtaposed to sending out the horror of the industry that is so disturbing lets face it it keeps many of us awake at night.
While all this is going on there are others out there doing other incredible things. There are those on the front line at live exports and there are those that are infiltrating farms to take footage like the great Jo Anne McArthur.
