Hello darkness, my old friend
I've got to live with you till the end
Because a human cruelly killing
Locked us in while they were sleeping.
And the vision of the sunshine and the rain
Within the sound of silence
In restless dreams I walked alone
Bloodstained floors, and screams of pain
'Neath the blowtorch and the shame
I turned my back on cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by flash of light
They slit my throat
And touched the sound of silence
And in the blowtorch light, I saw
A hundred pigs dead on the floor
Piggies screaming without sound
Piggies dying to be found
Piggies speaking truths that they
Knew would never see the light of day
And no one cared
To hear the sound of silence
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.
Hi all. You may have heard that the Highlands hit some extremely low temperatures. 2 nights ago it was minus 21.6 and i have to say the worst night of my life. I have never been so cold. Not good living in a caravan in these temperatures. Yesterday I could hardly move.🥶
I felt so wiped out and it was like my blood had frozen. I could not focus and felt like had been sedated. This got worse throughout the day. I now realise that I just experienced hypothermia. My body hurt and my mind felt fogged.
I want to say thank you for all those who have been worried. I feel very touched by this and reading some messages this morning. Today its just minus 4 so basically it feels warm. My body still feels a bit weird but nothing like yesterday.
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
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
Like all captivity of sentient life fish farming is creating disease. This ends up in the wider ecosystem damaging and polluting wildlife.
