that 'australia day' ad...


this ad, by aussie farms, is the one that should be on television... "...what it really means to eat lamb on Australia Day..." - read more at https://www.facebook.com/AussieFarms/posts/1723952881166679...


i am so over the horrific carnist advertising pushed at any 'celebratory time' (although carnist crap is 'there' all year, it's just so fucking more full on at the moment, coming up to australia/invasion day)... i am so over having dismembered body parts of others in my face wherever i turn and the smell of decaying flesh in my nostrils whenever i breath - walking down the street, shopping at the supermarket, and the staff kitchen is somewhere to stay away from at lunch times - and then there's the smell of burning flesh from the barbecues on balconies and in backyards that surround my home, my sanctuary... help stop the animal holocaust - go vegan...

a beautiful tribute...

you may have watched some of bite size vegan's videos - i've shared a few over the years - however this one i'm about to share is one of her most personal stories... you see emily's beautiful companion ooby died last week - a beautiful canine girl, a 'bulldog' born and bred to human specifications, human dictates as to how she should look, regardless of the health problems that designer-breeding would cause...

it is beautiful and yet heart-wrenching... it is a tribute to ooby, and to emily's love and guardianship, yet it is also a sad testament to the horror that the breeding of animals by profiteers to be sold as commodities, chattels, has wrought on many animals...

in emily's words - "This is the story of Ooby the bulldog. It’s a story worth knowing. For every purebred dog suffering from man-made afflictions, for every homeless or abandoned dog out there, let Ooby’s story and her life help change how we treat our companions.


farewell beautiful ooby...

please adopt, don't shop - there are far too many languishing in shelters waiting for their chance to experience love, happiness, companionship...

and people say vegans don't have a sense of humour...

i just had to share this.... as someone on google+ commented after viewing it - 'it's thug kitchen meets martha stewart'...


please, go vegan - for the animals, the planet and because it's the right thing to do....

draw my life...

one of my favourite vegan activists, emily of bite size vegan, has put together the following video which speaks volumes on the short life of farmed turkeys from the viewpoint of one young turkey... it is poignant, moving, eye-opening - there is no 'real life' graphic horror footage here, just a simple illustrated story that hopefully you find thought provoking...



if this touched you, perhaps you may also find the draw my life videos on the vegan break site illustrated by vegan artist sooyeon jang - 'a chickens life', 'a pigs life', 'the life of a dog in south korea' - as impactful as i did - please take the time to view them, they are breathtakingly moving... http://www.veganbreak.com/vegan-draw-my-life/
