My heart is completely broken leaving the Bahamas today 🇧🇸💔😪 · · I don't want to leave, every single one of us is so needed right now and probably for months to come. 😫😭 · · I'll be back next week, however @ethically_elizabeth is staying behind to continue the efforts with @ajanikiyaphoto / @compassionkind , @lenamanolas from @baarkbahamas and the rest of our amazing crew. · · Hundreds if not thousands of animals are still in immediate need of being rescued 🐶🐈💗😢 · · Some of you know I have a full time corporate job that pays the bills and helps me achieve my goals when it comes to my passion for animals and the sanctuary planning. I have to travel to Austin,Texas in the morning for a client conference this week that I unfortunately cannot get out of. I sometimes wish I could do rescue full time. I am however so grateful to work for an organization that does provide a lot of flexibility and allows me to leave for outreach trips like these at the drop of a hat. 🙏🙏🙏🙏 Always trying to keep things in perspective, especially after seeing such tragedy in the Bahamas 💔🇧🇸 · · Thank you to my parents for caring for all of my animals while I'm away, I know how much work it is and having someone I trust keeping them makes leaving and focusing on the missions that much easier. 💛💗💛💗💛💗 Thank you also to Natalie from the BAARK team for housing Liz and I so we could save the expense of a hotel room 🙏 See you soon team ✌️ To donate click the link in bio! Or donate directly to @baarkbahamas
I don't want to lie to any of you.... This outreach trip is by far the most devastating I have ever been involved in. 💔 . . The stories we've heard of mothers losing grip of their children during the worst of the storm, watching them being swept away in the current, knowing they cannot swim, wondering if they will ever see them again. . . Family members of missing people of Abaco and Grand Bahama still not sure if they are alive or dead, numerous people committing suicide after losing their entire family and witnessing horror, people literally begging the government for help on their hands and knees. The death toll is going to continue to rise, I anticipate into the thousands. Many families will never have the closure they so desperately need and deserve as their bodies will never be recovered. . . As I said before, the media is downplaying what's really going on and it's just completely unfathomable the lack of resources and preparedness the Bahamas is showing to their citizens. I don't know what the solution is but moral of the story, we aren't just helping animals while we are there. Our teams are continuously helping people as well as animals, because how could we not?! 😪 . . I will say though, this photo represents a small glimpse of hope for the animals affected. This poor puppy is living in a crate, outside, no air conditioning, and very minimal attention. But when I picked him up, he just licked me all over and was so happy to be shown love for probably one of the first times in his life. Covered in fleas, worms in his belly, and emaciated. I am working diligently to get him into a temporary medical foster until I can personally bring him to the United States for foster / adoption. If you are interested in being considered please reach out to me directly. 💛 Please consider donating to our fundraiser, we want to continue to help but can't do so without the generosity of all of you 💗 LINK IN BIO 🙏 . . 📷: @ethically_elizabeth
My friend @ethically_elizabeth and I will most likely be deploying later in the week to the Island of Abaco, Bahamas and Grand Bahama Island, 🇧🇸the areas heavily hit by Category 5 Hurricane Dorian. Assessments for entry are still being made however we have several boats and captains on standby ready to assist when we get the green light. . . Our efforts on land will focus on the rescue and relief efforts for both human and non human animals. 🐾🐾🐾🐾 We have reports of several animal shelters and rescues being completely destroyed and many animals lives have been lost. We will save any and all that we can once we are able to safely arrive via boat. . . Any and all donations are appreciated. Link in bio! Thank you in advance for your generosity! 💗 . .

If you ever think you don't have the power as one individual to make an impact, you are wrong. Every single one of us has a voice. USE IT! I choose to use my voice to fight for the billions of voiceless animals murdered annually and it will never be silenced. If there is a cause you're passionate about, get ACTIVE. . . Saturday, thousands of us marched the streets of New York City for animal rights!

I met @el_vegan_may at the 2019 Animal Liberation Conference.... Proud to call him a fellow activist friend 💛 Go follow him to see the work he does for the animals 💪 . . This is a repost of his footage from the mass action we were involved in. I was arrested along with 78 others, charges pending. . . . @el_vegan_ "This is the MOST POWERFUL event I’ve ever been apart of. Hundreds of activists from around the world gathered at a Duck slaughterhouse & rescued 32 individuals from death. We sang together, we sang to the officers, we sang for true peace & love for all beings. It was something historic, something that will be in history books one day. We will look back and be ashamed of the atrocities we committed towards the trillions of Animals. We will look back & will realize how insane it is to protect murderers of innocent creatures. I am beyond proud to be on the right side of history with such incredible people doing anything & everything to force positive change. I will FOREVER remember this day as long as I live. This day was the beginning of my new activism journey and I will continually grow and do my best to help END SPECIESISM, STOP INJUSTICES & BRING PEACE TO ALL ANIMALS."
"Each year, over 115 million animals are used for testing in laboratories for cosmetics, cleaning products, and pharmaceuticals. Of these 115 million, almost all of them are euthanized and disposed of once the testing period is complete. We have 3 pigs under our care who lived the first few months of their lives in laboratories - and were said to be lucky to have been given the chance to go to a sanctuary because all of the pigs they tested on with were euthanized. I would not use the word lucky. I was told they had such amazing personalities and the workers in the laboratories did not have the heart to euthanize them. Is that luck or just the outcome of humans having more compassion for animals who show them affection? Such selfishness. I suppose that does not really matter. What matters is this. Alba, Gingersnap and Petunia get to live out their lives happily but with the physical scars to remind us all of their past. They have 2inch x 2inch square patches of scarred skin that line their backs in rows. They were burned over and over - deep enough to leave these marks for the rest of their lives. Petunia is seen in this video directly after taking a mud bath. She holds no animosity toward me, even though my species tortured her for their own personal gain when she was just a baby. She loves me, actually. For that, I am envious and grateful. I am at the point in my life where I no longer hold grudges. I know how good it feels to apologize as well as forgive. We all make mistakes - some really big mistakes, others really small mistakes. But could I forgive someone for holding me hostage, disfiguring me by burning me over and over and killing my only friends in front of me? I do not believe I could. Yet Petunia forgives. If every laboratory worker showed up to say hi to her, she would try to cuddle them - and not because she is dumb. Pigs are actually brilliant. She would show nothing but love to anyone and everyone because it is simply in her nature to do so. How beautiful is that? I cherish these fleeting moments. To see her so happy and muddy. There is nothing more fulfilling to me. ❤️ Use @crueltycutter app to avoid supporting animal testing." RP: @boochaces
Barrels and dumpsters full of dismembered bodies sit festering outside of slaughterhouses around the world. Blood and maggot filled entrails litter the pavement, mixed in with the occasional leg, eyeball or head. As you approach the death bins, your eyes, nose and throat begin to run and constrict. Your body uncontrollably heaves as the stench enters your nasal passages. • The animals entering these facilities can smell what awaits them long before the blade is forced across their throats. They sit in filth, sometimes for days waiting for the murderers to rip them from their crates and pens. They witness dozens of animals slowly die or bleed out in front of them before they too succumb to the monsters’ wrath. This is the reality of the “meat”, “dairy” and “egg” industries. If you consume these “products”, you’re just as guilty as those doing the killing. • Don’t be complicit in the slaughter of the innocent. Watch Dominion, Earthlings, What the Health, Forks Over Knives and Cowspiracy to learn more about how these vile industries destroy sentient life, human health and the environment.

MEAT THE VICTIMS BARCELONA 3! * REPOST: @seb alex * Tag your vegetarian friends! * Around 160 activists took over a dairy farm in Barcelona, Spain. Exposing the constant rights violations of non human animals. The action was over shortly after the mainstream media and the police arrived. Activists were physically assaulted, injured cows and babies were found without care, water or any food. * Needless to say, the aim of these actions is not about raising awareness about the TREATMENT of the animals, but about unnecessary animal exploitation in general, regardless of how they’re being treated. * The dairy industry has just as much (if not more ) suffering as the meat industry! * Do not buy the humane lie, other animals are not here for us, they’re here with us. Cow milk is for baby cows! * 📸 @mas8in @paulaponce_x * #meatthevictims #meatthevictimsbcn #veganlife #veganmotivation #vegansofig #animalliberation

“I'm not feeling very enthusiastic about the 4th of July these days. It's not that I hate the USA or anything. It's just that I'm disappointed. I'm disappointed in what we're becoming. I'm aware of our tragic and oppressive history against the indigenous people who are the ones who deserved independence from us. I'm aware of one of their key oppressors, President Andrew Jackson, the culprit of the Trail of Tears, who happens to be the current president's favorite president. . . I'm aware that the current president wasn't even elected by the majority of voters and yet he still rules, and appoints Supreme Court justices who will rule for the rest of their lives. This is only one of many ways our political system is not representative of the people. . . I'm aware that the country we fought against would go on to end slavery long before us, grant women the right to vote before us, pass universal healthcare and prevent a gun violence epidemic like the one we have here in the US. . . I'm aware of children dying at our border, and the attitude of hatred and indifference toward their suffering from so many of us. I see xenophobia growing, and I've seen good people become hateful and nasty as a result of partisan political manipulation. . . And I'm even aware that the way we celebrate, by blowing up the sky with fireworks, is painful to wildlife, pets and vets with PTSD. So, I'm not so enthusiastic about the 4th these days. But I am also not giving up on the idea that we can be better. I know there are enough of us who can and will fight to improve this country. We've gotten as far as we have because of those who came before us, who recognized an injustice and did something about it. . . A lack of enthusiasm, recognizing what's wrong with our country, is the first step. The next step is to do something about it. So, those of us who feel that sense of not being represented by our government, and those of us who are willing to admit that things need to change, just know, that's what the 4th was all about.” Nathan Miller

THIS IS DAIRY! . . REPOST • @weanimals No matter where you go in the world, the story of dairy remains ridden with suffering. Earlier this year, the We Animals team worked with Taiwanese organization, EAST (台灣動物社會研究會 ) to document conditions on dairy farms in Taiwan. The images and video footage gathered form part of the We Animals Asia Series and are used in EAST's dairy campaign which calls upon both industry and government to scrutinize practice. On one dairy farm, our team witnessed cows tethered by their necks. "Tethering" is still practiced on some dairy farms throughout Asia, Europe, and North America. Confinement means more animals can be kept in small spaces. Learn more in this short video.
Meat the Victims Ireland! . . REPOST! . . • @casperhilt 📢Right now, in Ireland. Just took this footage of inside the barn next to the one we are occupying. This is not a horror movie, this is legal standard practice in this horrible industry of torture. If you ever buy animal products, you directly fund this, you keep this alive. You could just not, it is up to you. Go vegan, it's basic decency. #MeatTheVictimsIRE ▫️ Peace! @casperhilt ✌️ ▫️ #MeatTheVictims #puppylove #friendsnotfood #animalabuse #pigletsofinstagram #animalliberation #269life #veganaf #animalrightsactivist #veganactivist #casperhilt #directactioneverywhere #veganguy #dyrevelfærd #fremtidenervegansk #dominionmovement #savemovement #thesavemovement #dyremishandling #flexitarian #carnivorediet #ilovemydog #pigsarefriendsnotfood #untileveryanimalisfree #veganireland #stopyulin #endspeciesism #pigsave
HAPPENING NOW 🚨📢😓 REPOST! . . • @casperhilt 📢Right now, in Ireland. This torture is what you pay for, when you buy animal products. Are your short and forgettable snack really worth more than their immense suffering and their lives? ° ° I and 40 other peaceful and non-violent activists just entered a pig farm, to make awareness of and expose this brutal animal exploitation industry, an industry which only works by secrecy, violence and lies. #MeatTheVictimsIRE ▫️ Peace! @casperhilt ✌️ ▫️ #MeatTheVictims #puppylove #friendsnotfood #animalabuse #pigletsofinstagram #animalliberation #269life #veganaf #animalrightsactivist #veganactivist #casperhilt #directactioneverywhere #veganguy #dyrevelfærd #fremtidenervegansk #dominionmovement #savemovement #thesavemovement #dyremishandling #flexitarian #carnivorediet #ilovemydog #pigsarefriendsnotfood #untileveryanimalisfree #veganireland #stoppuppyfarming #endspeciesism #pigsave
After being saved from an untimely death at a factory farm and slaughterhouse, these 32 ducklings are learning how to play, swim, and trust. . . 🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆 Repost: @directactioneverywhere 💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗 #LuckyDucks #righttorescue #dxe #directactioneverywhere #alc2019 #animalrights #animalactivist #animalactivist #ducksofinstagram #ducks #vegansofig #vegan #animalrescue #animalliberationconference #animalliberation #speciesism #endespeciesm #meatismurder #veganinspiration #vegancommunity #liberationlockdown #massopenrescue #ducklingsofinstagram
78 Arrests. 32 Ducks saved. 🦆 All in one day of action at a farm that kills over 1 million sentient animals every year. 💔 As you may have heard by now, I was one of the activists arrested. . . After the open rescue.... Activists locked themselves to slaughter equipment halting the slaughter of the ducks. Others chained themselves to the gates of the facility, refusing to move. Our ask was simple, open an investigation on the animal abuse happening at this facility. After years of documented and reported cruelty, nobody has been held accountable. That is why ACTION was necessary. Stand up, Speak Out! We will not be intimidated by the animal agriculture industry and the affiliated animal abusers. We also won’t be intimidated by the legal system and it’s unnecessary approach that day with riot gear and scare tactics against non violent protestors standing up for what’s right. . . We must continue to be the Voice for the voiceless ✊🗣 Although lives were saved that day, I can’t help but be saddened by the hundreds of thousands of ducks left behind suffering. “On Monday June 3rd 2019, over 600 activists showed up at a duck factory farm and slaughterhouse in Petaluma, California to speak TRUTH to POWER. We want to know why Sonoma County Sheriffs Department is more concerned with acting as private security for a violent corporation than they are with protecting animals and activists lives. We know that California penal code 597e recognizes our #righttorescue victims of abuse, and we will continue to fight until the legal system acknowledges that too and it becomes standard protocol to protect the abused instead of the abusers.” Wayne Hsiung I will be sharing additional footage and videos of the action soon.
