We are united in the fight for the voiceless

"A universe is, indeed, to be pitied whose dominating inhabitants are so unconscious and so ethically embryonic that they make life a commodity, mercy a disease and systematic massacre a pastime and a profession." Professor J. Howard Moore, 1862-1916 Better World Philosophy

“A change in lifestyle could bring healthy pressure to bear on those who wield political, economic and social pressure.” Pope Francis

       

"Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in with the core belief." Frantz Fanon (1925-1961)

True, and others intentionally ignore evidence and facts, in order to protect an individual or to advance their own self-serving agenda. Hence, the ongoing and uphill battle to expose the truths. Rabbit Advocacy won’t be silenced. We are here for all creatures.

Until every animal is free ----- we won't back down.

April 21, 2016 The Animal Kingdom Has Lost Its Prince

No member of the animal kingdom nurses past maturity
No member of the animal kingdom ever did a thing to me
It’s why I don’t eat red meat or white fish
Don’t give me no blue cheese
We’re all members of the animal kingdom
Leave your brothers and sisters in the sea 

What’s wrong—fundamentally wrong—with the way animals are treated isn’t the details that vary from case to case. It’s the whole system. The forlornness of the veal calf is pathetic, heart wrenching; the pulsing pain of the chimp with electrodes planted deep in her brain is repulsive; the slow torturous death of the raccoon caught in the leg-hold trap is agonizing. But what is wrong isn’t the pain, isn’t the suffering, isn’t the deprivation…  

The fundamental wrong is the system that allows us to view animals as our resources, here for us—to be eaten, or surgically manipulated, or exploited for sport or money. Once we accept this view of animals—as our resources—the rest is as predictable as it is regrettable.

Compassion is an action word with no boundaries.
