The forgotten ones during virus outbreaks

Everyone is talking about a pandemic now because us humans feel threatened by it, we can die from this current virus, Covid 19. Previously we rarely talked about viruses, because most of us humans didn’t feel directly life-threatened by one. But almost every year viruses break out among our very own farm animals in multiple places around the world; Mad Cow Disease, Foot and Mouth Disease, African Swine Fever, Pig Flue, Avian Flue, Q-Fever… and what do we do? We mass kill them, often using horrible methods, like burying them alive, smothering them with gas, clubbing them, turning off the ventilation and blowing in steam to heat them to death locked inside their barns…

This pandemic is making us realize how precious life is and how scary death it. But where is our compassion for animals that face these virus outbreaks, largely due to human activity (keeping millions together in cramped conditions, transporting them around the world…). Is it not time that we worked towards a more plant-based future to reduce the risks of causing more suffering, of them and of us now?

You won’t believe what the dairy industry did with your tax money

In the midst of the current global pandemic, the UK dairy industry has launched a new campaign called Milk Your Moments, encouraging people to buy more cows’ milk products. The campaign itself is costing £1 million, but half of that is your taxpayer money, a hand out from the UK government in the form of a Defra grant. During a crisis where charities are struggling to provide food to the most vulnerable people, our taxes are being spent on social media and TV ads shoring up an industry that was failing long before COVID-19. Is the answer really more subsidies and hand-outs, or is there a better way for farmers and taxpayers?

Is MEAT POISONING Our Water?

Freshwater makes up a small fraction of the earth’s water. The UN estimates that by 2025, two-thirds of the global population will live in areas affected by water scarcity. Another issue is that it disproportionately affects People of Color, and the situation is expected to get even worse.

Agriculture accounts for 92% of humanity’s water footprint and animal agriculture represents one-third of that. Animal agriculture is resource-intensive and freshwater is needed for growing feed and hydrating animals. When our diet is the biggest contributor to our water footprint, what can we do?

Water saved by going vegan could conserve drinking water for those who are suffering from a lack of access. Crops grown for animals could be dedicated to human consumption and help alleviate food insecurity. Land could be used to grow more sustainable plant-based protein. Animal agriculture is not only a threat to our water supply, but also ocean ecosystems, global temperatures, and human health.

‘Meat the Future’: Film Review

Liz Marshall's smooth, accessible documentary may change some minds as it unpacks the specifics of the slaughter-free "clean meat" movement.

“Meat the Future” is a slightly goofy title for a film that takes its subject very, very seriously. The wordplay feels like a token flourish of whimsy in Liz Marshall’s quietly educational documentary about the rise of alternative, environmentally friendly but still animal-based meat, as if to gently beckon carnivorous viewers who might be expecting a dour lecture. That isn’t on the cards here, however. “Meat the Future” unfolds as a thorough and persuasive presentation for a cutting-edge product that it wants us to start thinking about in normalized terms; it’s got too much to explain and advocate to leave much time for moral repudiation. “Clean meat,” as cell-grown protein has been branded by the scientists developing it, is the future; Marshall’s doc treats the present as a formality to be politely put behind us.

Why HISTORY's Greatest Minds Didn't EAT MEAT

Plant-based diets have been around for ages - literally. In ancient Greece, philosophers questioned the morality of eating meat. In the age of enlightenment, Leonardo Da Vinci introduced the concept of speciesism - the false assumption that humans are superior to animals. Famed inventor Benjamin Franklin gave up meat in his youth, while others like Einstein, Edison, and Newton gave it up later in life. Nikola Tesla spoke out against animal cruelty and rarely ate meat.

Social justice reformers also abstained from eating meat. Rosa Parks and Mohandas Gandhi were vegetarians. Susan B. Anthony supported the animal rights movement and the first American Vegetarian Society.

Why beef is the worst food for the climate

Avoiding high-emission foods can have a bigger climate impact than any other consumption change.

Our consumption habits emit billions of tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Our diets account for one-fourth of those emissions.

The food we eat emits so many greenhouse emissions because of the land it takes to grow it, but it also has something to do with biology. This video explains why the production of some foods emit more than others, and which foods to avoid to be a more climate-conscious consumer.

17 Celebrities Call to SHUT DOWN Wild ANIMAL MARKETS

The wild animal trade and live animal markets have been linked to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most wet markets in Asia sell fruit, vegetables, herbs, spices, and fresh meat, but the Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan had a separate section for live and slaughtered wild animals. When diseases jump from humans to animals, they are called zoonotic diseases. The novel coronavirus is believed to be zoonotic, emerging from bats or trafficked pangolins.

Celebrities, politicians, and influencers are calling for an end to wild animal markets. Dr. Jane Goodall believes our disregard for nature has led to this pandemic. Ricky Gervais says wild animal markets need to end now, before another deadly pathogen transfers to humans. Sir Paul McCartney wants to see action taken to close these markets for good.

Other notable celebrities such as Queen guitarist Brian May, 'Friends' star Courteney Cox, Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, and Leonardo DiCaprio are urging governments to end wildlife markets. Here are 17 celebrities calling to end live animal markets.

Will COVID-19 Kill The Meat Industry?

Has COVID-19 changed the economic case for meat and dairy?

An economic recession is looming in the wake of COVID-19 - the impacts of which are already far worse than the 2008 financial crash. The thing is though, we've known this was coming for years. Population growth and intensive animal farming have created a breeding ground for outbreaks like COVID-19. So we have to ask ourselves, what is the price we are willing to pay to continue to have meat on the menu?

Exclusive clip: Liz Marshall’s Hot Docs film “Meat the Future” explores cell-based meat

Director Liz Marshall (The Ghosts in Our Machine) will premiere her latest documentary Meat the Future on Thursday (May 7) as part of Hot Docs at Home on CBC.

The film centers on the U.S. movement toward cell-based meat — also known as “clean meat” and “cultivated meat” – a scientific process of growing animal cells to harvest poultry, beef, pork, fish and seafood.

Filmed between 2016 and 2019, Meat the Future goes behind the scenes with the movements’ pioneers — namely activists, scientists, researchers, marketers and policy experts — who believe the process can help prevent zoonotic foodborne diseases and reduce the greenhouse gases that result from animal agriculture, among other benefits.

How COVID 19 Is Killing BIG MEAT

Over 6,500 workers at meat processing plants have been sickened or are in isolation due to COVID-19. Smithfield, JBS, Tyson Foods and Cargill have halted operations at 22 slaughterhouses and processing plants in North America. But with President Trump’s new executive order, these plants are being forced to stay (at least partially) open. While the meat industry is expected to lose $13.6 Billion dollars due to closures, workers on the front lines say it is not worth the health risk. However, many are scared to speak up out of fear of losing their jobs. How will this pandemic affect meat production in the future?

INVESTIGATION: Animal Equality Shows Torment of EU Animals Shipped for Slaughter

A new investigation from Animal Equality shows the pain and torment of Spanish lambs as they are shipped across long distances, with journeys lasting up to ten days, and slaughtered while fully conscious after arrival.

THE DETAILS: In distressing footage shot by our investigators, we documented how lambs, all less than a year old, are treated during their live transport from Spanish farms. Tens of thousands of lambs are first shipped hundreds of miles by truck to Spanish port cities and then forced to travel by sea to countries in the Middle East to meet the demand for meat coinciding with Ramadan and the feast of the Sacrifice of the Lamb. Lambs are particularly sensitive animals that become paralyzed when they are afraid. During the journey, workers are shown throwing the animals and grabbing them by their legs to prevent them from retreating.

A TERRIBLE JOURNEY: Once the lambs are loaded onto the ships, they have to endure a 10-day journey in which there is no guarantee that the basic animal welfare standards set by the European Union will be met. To those in charge of their fate, it doesn’t matter if the lambs are injured during the journey or are in an advanced state of pregnancy—the only requirement is that they arrive at their destination alive. When they reach the country that purchased them, the lambs will have to then spend between 15-21 days in quarantine until they’re taken to slaughterhouses where they’ll endure an agonizing death. According to ritual slaughter rules to ensure the meat is halal, the lambs will be sacrificed with their throats slit and left to bleed out to death while fully conscious.

COVID-19 A FACTOR: The meat industry is utilizing the exports of lambs to Middle East countries as a way of compensating for the lack of domestic demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as 90% of these animals are consumed in bars and restaurants. Data indicates that this year alone more than 250,000 lambs will be sent to countries in North Africa and the Middle East for Ramadan celebrations.

BILLIONS OF ANIMALS ENDURE CRUEL LIVE TRANSPORT: Worldwide, more than two billion farm animals undergo long-distance of travel each year as a means of transporting live meat. Thousands also die during long sea journeys, with their bodies thrown overboard, appearing on beaches days later. In a 2019 report following an accident in which 14,000 sheep drowned in the Black Sea while being transported from Romania to Saudi Arabia, the European Commission acknowledged numerous deficiencies in this type of long-distance transport. The report points out that the welfare of these animals depends largely on the conditions of the ship and because there are no suitable inspections carried are carried out, there are no guarantees that these ships have an adequate drainage or ventilation systems. In fact, for ships bound for Saudi Arabia, port operators or livestock owners are not even allowed access to the vessels’ interior.

WHAT WE’RE SAYING: "Our investigations have clearly documented the mistreatment of lambs on these trips. It’s time to demand that both the Spanish government and the European Commission ban long-distance travel of live animals," says Silvia Barquero, Executive of Animal Equality Spain.

WHAT ELSE WE'RE SAYING: "From farms to slaughterhouses, animals exploited for food suffer tremendously. What is often forgotten in this never-ending cycle of violence is the immense cruelty that happens when these animals are transported to be slaughtered. It's more than time for this cruelty to be stopped and Animal Equality will continue to use its investigations to expose these truths," says Sharon Núñez, President of Animal Equality.

LIVE TRANSPORT OF ANIMALS OUTSIDE OF THE EU MUST END: In Europe, Animal Equality launched a petition addressed to the European Commission and the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries calling for an end to long-distance transport to countries that do not guarantee basic EU animal welfare standards. We are hopeful that our efforts will lead to much-needed change and will prevent the suffering of hundreds of thousands of animals every year. In the meantime, you can make a difference for animals by sharing out our investigations and ditching animal products. Saving lives starts with consumer choices, and you can help end suffering by making the switch plant-based. The animals, the planet, and your health will thank you.

How NATURE Is THRIVING During COVID-19

While humans are stuck in quarantine, the planet has benefitted from society slowing down. Turtles are hatching on empty beaches, uninterrupted by beach-goers. Ocean life is swimming through areas that have been overcrowded by noise and boats. Animals have taken to the streets in large numbers across the world. They are even taking over national parks - like the lions found sleeping in the streets at Kruger National Park.

Pollution has taken a major dip. Cities across the world have been on lockdown, and the lack of cars on the road has resulted in a drastic decline in air pollution. Some residents in Jalandhar are seeing an unobstructed view of the Himalayas for the first time in their lives. Have you seen an increase in wildlife activity near you?

COVID-19: Our Treatment Of Animals Could Lead To An Even Worse Pandemic

There is a lesson that we as a species have failed to learn despite hundreds of years of powerful warnings. Tuberculosis, measles, whooping cough, typhoid, leprosy, and the common cold all have one thing in common: They jumped from animals to people when we started domesticating, farming and exploiting animals.

Just in the last hundred years, flu pandemics have spread across the world killing up to 100 million people. These were followed by SARS, bird flu, swine flu, MERS, and now COVID-19. Each of these infectious diseases spread rapidly after jumping from animals to humans, and they all exist as a direct result of the exploitation of animals for their meat, milk, eggs and skins.

3 Attacks on the Animal Movement and How to Fix Them (Invitation to Discuss) – Jeremy Hess

Jeremy says: Is the animal movement holding itself back? Animal use and veganism may prove to be the defining moral issue of our time. In order for animal issues to be taken seriously, it's essential that it is tethered to consistent moral philosophy. At the moment the underpinning philosophy of the animal movement does not call for an end to animal use. That, along with the other two points raised, are why I made this video. I've been vegan since 2014 and I have spent the bulk of my hours campaigning for other animals since 2017. In that time I've had countless discussions with myself and others. I've observed three key attacks on the animal movement that I think are keeping this movement from reaching its potential. In this video I go through both sides of each topic as well as my opinions on them.

'TIGER KING' = BLACKFISH For Zoos?

Netflix’s “Tiger King” will be remembered for getting many of us through a few hours of what seems like eternal quarantine. It hits all the points that make for good television: dynamic characters and fascinating plotlines that include murder, mystery, and, of course, tigers. Lots and lots of tigers. But what it offers in daytime-television-worthy cliffhangers, it misses in addressing the issues with animals in captivity. And that may make its most lasting memory turn out to be an abject failure for animals.

HOW MEAT Causes PANDEMICS – LIVEKINDLY

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, questions have been raised about the virus' origin. Experts believe the novel coronavirus stemmed from wild animal meat sold at a wet market in Wuhan, China.

Throughout history, many pandemics have spread to humans from animals - these are called zoonotic diseases. The Spanish Flu of 1918 is believed to be linked to infected livestock, including pigs, chickens, and ducks. The flu pandemic of 1957, known as the Asian flu, is believed to have origins in wild ducks or poultry. In 1968, another flu pandemic began in Hong Kong. It was the first known outbreak of H3N2, linked to turkey and swine farms.

There has also been the Swine Flu outbreak (H1N1). It is believed to have mutated from the Spanish Flu. The SARS outbreak was linked to horseshoe bats, with civet cats sold in wild animal markets as a probable carrier.

Even produce can be affected by concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). Several e. Coli outbreaks in lettuce were linked to infected livestock feces used as manure or found in water run-off.

What can we do? As long as humans continue to eat meat, we run the risk of coming into contact with new zoonotic diseases. Dr. Michael Greger alludes to this in his book "2006 Bird Flu: A Virus of Our Own Hatching." A shift away from animal agriculture and wild animal meat toward a new, plant-based food system could help create a safer, healthier, and kinder world.

Animal Equality's Campaign to Ban Wet Markets

Citing public health and safety, Animal Equality has launched a worldwide campaign and petition calling on the United Nations (UN) to immediately close wet markets across the globe. Not only do these markets pose an immediate danger to humans, but they are also intensely cruel and abhorrently inhumane to animals. It’s because of the public health crises these markets cause, as well as the intense suffering inflicted on farmed animals, that we are urging that all wet markets be banned.

A BREEDING GROUND FOR DISEASE: Wet markets get their name in part from the blood, guts, scales and water that soak the stalls’ floors, remnants from animals brutally killed for customers who desire to eat freshly killed meat. In these markets, exotic and traditionally farmed animals are mixed together in cramped cages and unsanitary enclosures, creating the perfect breeding ground for zoonotic diseases. In exclusive footage shot by Animal Equality at wet markets in China, Vietnam and India, animals such as deer, raccoons, crocodiles, and dogs are shown living in filthy conditions, suffering from dehydration, starvation and disease. It is in these unregulated markets where diseases like SARS originated, and where scientists believe COVID-19 began.

HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF: It’s still not 100 percent clear where the outbreak of COVID-19 started from, but researchers speculate that the virus originated from a seafood market in Wuhan notorious for also trading in wild animals. This wouldn’t be the first time that a deadly virus was linked to animal trade and consumption—H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) are two other recent examples of viruses that likely originated in animals and then jumped to humans causing dangerous outbreaks.

A THREAT TO ANIMALS AND PEOPLE: Wet markets represent a direct threat to animals and, based on the previously mentioned cases, presents a major public-health risk. For animals, the prospect of abuse and suffering on factory farms has been well-documented. For people, the issue becomes the exposure of customers and purveyors to living and dead animals at unhygienic markets, creating a greater likelihood that animal-borne diseases will make the leap to humans.

WE NEED TO GO FURTHER: Recently, China banned the buying, selling, and eating of wild animals in an emergency effort to prevent infectious diseases from jumping from animals to people. This measure was taken as a direct reaction to the recent outbreak of COVID-19, as more and more experts suspect the pandemic was caused by the illegal trade and consumption of wild animals. However, this ban needs to be made permanent and more needs to be done. For the health and safety of both animals and people, wet markets must be immediately shut down.

WHAT WE’RE SAYING: “Wet markets have no place in our society and should be immediately closed. Not only are these markets extremely cruel to animals, scientific research has shown their connection to animal-borne disease outbreaks, proving they are also an immediate threat to public health and safety,” says President of Animal Equality, Sharon Núñez.

WHAT THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY IS SAYING: “If you take wild animals and you put them into a market with domestic animals or other animals, where there's an opportunity for a virus to jump species, you are creating … a superhighway for viruses to go from the wild into people. We can't do this anymore. We can't tolerate this anymore. I want the wild animal markets closed.” Dr. Ian Lipkin, Infectious Disease Expert “The animals have been transported over large distances and are crammed together into cages. They are stressed and immunosuppressed and excreting whatever pathogens they have in them. With people in large numbers in the market and in intimate contact with the body fluids of these animals, you have an ideal mixing bowl for [disease] emergence.” Professor Andrew Cunningham, the Zoological Society of London

WHAT YOU CAN DO: As our investigations and scientific research has shown, animals are abused every day in horrendous conditions that not only perpetuate an atmosphere of never-ending suffering but also have at times created strains of viruses and infections that have been previously unknown or experienced. Not only is consuming animals and animal products a detriment to human health and safety, but it’s also one of the leading causes of climate change and is extremely cruel to animals. Switching away from animal products and embracing a plant-based diet is the safest option for both humans and animals, and is one way you can directly make a difference for us all. Another way to make the world a better place is to sign our petition asking the UN to immediately close all wet markets. It’s more than time to end this global threat, once and for all.

Corona crisis and calves: exports of unweaned calves from Ireland to the Netherlands

Today (April 2) Eyes on Animals and L214, with assistance from Ethical Farming Ireland, are publishing the findings of their recent investigation into the long-distance transport of unweaned calves. The investigation, conducted in March 2020, shows the plight of calves born in Ireland and exported to intensive veal farms in the Netherlands.

Four different countries are crossed, 2,000 km traveled, more than 50 hours of transport: this investigation demonstrates the irresponsibility of the EU and Member State governments which are determined to maintain this trade route even in times of a pandemic.

At a time when more and more countries are locked down and people are told to stay at home, we continue to transport live animals as if nothing had happened. Meanwhile, transport is a major cause of spreading corona further.

The virus can live on the surface of truck equipment and animals on board and travel this way. It can also be transmitted between the various people involved in this trade: from the Irish farmers and traders who sell these calves on the cattle markets to the international truck drivers, veterinarians or veterinary inspectors, custom officials, employees of the control post in France, to the Dutch veal farmers. These calves are transported to farms where they will be fattened for 6 months. Keeping these calves en route is not a question of preventing a food shortage since these calves will not be killed and transformed into meat for another 6 – 7 months. This non-essential transport poses unnecessary risks to public health.

The investigation reveals harsh transport conditions for these 2 to 3 week old calves. These young animals are weakened by the long journey and hungry and thirsty due to the lack of adequate feeding systems on board the trucks and being withheld from adequate feed for longer than the EU maximum time of 19 hours. After being confined on the trucks for 26,10 hours without any feed/milk, as documented by Eyes on Animals and L214, the unweaned calves are unloaded at the Couville control post, near Cherbourg, to be finally fed, but in a hurry. As one can see in the video footage, the calves are kicked and beaten with sticks during the feeding session in order to move them through quickly as almost 2000 calves, still wobbly on their legs, have to be processed by just a few people. After a 13-hour stop, they are reloaded again into the livestock trucks and transported for another 900km to the Netherlands.

VEGAN Omega 3 Sources BETTER Than FISH

Can you get all of the essential Omega-3 fatty acids on a plant-based diet? Omega-3s are important for your physical and mental health, and there are three types that our bodies need - ALA, EPA and DHA. According to the National Institutes of Health, adult males require 1.6 g of ALA each day, and females require 1.1g each day.

According to Dr. Mills and Dr. Radak, our bodies can convert alpha-linoleic acid (ALA) from plant sources into EPA and DHA, though how well your body converts them varies from person to person. You can also obtain a good dose of EPA and DHA directly from algae oil and seaweed products. The reason why fish are high in omega-3s is that they consume microalgae and seaweed.

Plant sources of ALA include walnuts, chia seeds, flax seeds, Brussels sprouts, avocado oil, tofu, and kidney beans. Many plant-based beverages are also fortified with omega-3s, so be sure to check the label.

What the Health Director to Release Film Exposing Link Between Animal Agriculture and Coronavirus

Keegan Kuhn and Alex Lockwood plan to expose how the global animal agriculture industry is responsible for public health crises such as food-borne illness, MRSA, and now COVID-19.

Keegan Kuhn—co-director of vegan documentaries What the Health and Cowspiracy—is currently producing a new documentary about the spread of diseases from animals to humans. The film will be directed by Alex Lockwood—the award-winning British director behind 73 Cows and Test Subjects—and aims to expose the culpability of the animal agriculture in creating massive public health threats such as antibiotic resistance, swine and bird flu, food-borne illness, MRSA, and, our current pandemic COVID-19, which started at a wet animal market in Wuhan, China late last year. “Alex Lockwood and I started working on this film almost six months ago, long before COVID-19 began making headlines because the dangers of zoonotic diseases in its present form have been with us since humans started farming animals,” Kuhn said. While the film does not yet have an official title, Kuhn believes it will be the first feature-length documentary about COVID-19 and plans to release it sometime this year. “Whilst the public is becoming increasingly aware of the threat of zoonotic diseases, animal agriculture’s threat still isn’t being given the level of urgency it requires with regards to media attention,” Lockwood said. “With this film, we hope to lift the veil of misinformation and corruption which help to keep this scientific reality a muted rumor.”

Is vegan meat better for the planet? It is a lot more efficient to produce vegan meat than animal meat. It requires fewer resources - making alternative meat out of legumes and grains cuts out the middleman. This also results in fewer greenhouse gas emissions as cows produce a lot of methane. Vegan meat is also better for animals, for our health, and it costs less money.

How wildlife trade is linked to coronavirus

And why the disease first appeared in China.

As of early March 2020, a new coronavirus, called COVID-19, is in more than 70 countries and has killed more than 3,100 people, the vast majority in China. That's where the virus emerged back in December 2019. This isn't a new phenomenon for China; in 2003, the SARS virus also emerged there, and under similar circumstances, before spreading around the world and killing nearly 800.

Both SARS and COVID-19 are in the "coronavirus" family, and both appear to have emerged from animals in China's notorious wildlife markets. Experts had long predicted that these markets, known to be potential sources of disease, would enable another outbreak. The markets, and the wildlife trade that supports them, are the underlying problem of these pandemics; until China solves that problem, more are likely to emerge.


How wildlife trade is linked to coronavirus

NOTE: As our expert Peter Li points out in the video, “The majority of the people in China do not eat wildlife animals. Those people who consume these wildlife animals are the rich and the powerful –a small minority.” This video explains how the people of China are themselves victims of the conditions that led to coronavirus. The virus is affecting many different countries and cultures, and there is never justification for xenophobia or racism.

We are facing an unprecedented global emergency. Life on Earth is in crisis: scientists agree we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown, and we are in the midst of a mass extinction of our own making. scientistsforxr.earth/planetary-emergency

On 31st October 2018, we assembled on Parliament Square in London to announce a Declaration of Rebellion against the UK Government. We were expecting a couple of hundred people. Instead, 1500 came to participate in peaceful civil disobedience. The energy was contagious! The next few weeks were a whirlwind. Six thousand of us converged on London to peacefully block five major bridges across the Thames. We planted trees in the middle of Parliament Square, and dug a hole there to bury a coffin representing our future. We super-glued ourselves to the gates of Buckingham Palace as we read a letter to the Queen. Our actions generated huge national and international publicity and, as news spread, our ideas connected with tens of thousands of people around the world. The XR project was resonating with a deeply felt need for community and solidarity. “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for,” we chanted! Dozens of countries now have groups springing up, from the Solomon Islands to Australia, from Spain to South Africa, the US to India..

HOGWOOD: a modern horror story. Coming Soon! Full Trailer.

You’re being lied to. Each day, you are bombarded with messages reassuring you that the UK has the highest welfare standards in the world. Through careful marketing and misleading labels, we are led to believe that farmed animals are well cared for and that eating meat is natural, normal and necessary. It’s time to uncover the truth. This is the film the meat industry doesn’t want you to see.

Narrated by Game of Thrones actor Jerome Flynn, HOGWOOD: a modern horror story has already sent ripples throughout the animal agriculture industry. It sparked a nationwide Day of Action where thousands of people came together to protest outside 150 Tesco stores. Over 70,000 people signed a petition urging Tesco to drop Hogwood. It became one of Viva!’s most far-reaching campaigns to date.

The film will be the culmination of months of investigative work by the Viva! team who worked tirelessly to expose the kind of unspeakable cruelty to animals many mistakenly think we have consigned to the history books.

It shows the concerted efforts to silence Viva! and exposes the negligence and inaction by government bodies and corporations alike. The film follows the Viva! Campaigns team as they enter some of Britain’s biggest factory farms for the very first time and sheds new light on the shocking things that lie beyond the public gaze. It explores why factory farming is supported and follows the brave fight to expose the truth and change the world.

Do ENVIRONMENTALISTS Actually Need to DITCH MEAT?

Is it possible to be a meat-eating environmentalist? As the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has warned us, we have less than 10 years to mitigate climate catastrophe. The report called for “unprecedented changes” to all aspects of society to prevent warming beyond this level. Should ditching meat be part of this?

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the global livestock industries account for 7.1 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent per year, representing 14.5% of all human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. It also notes that 26% of the world's arable land is used for livestock, not to mention that 33% of all cropland is dedicated to growing animal feed. Deforestation is a huge issue, as 1.5 soccer fields are cleared in the Amazon Rainforest every hour to make room for grazing cattle.

There is also the issue of water availability - raising animals for food uses 1/3 of our potable water supply. Yet, 700 million people across the globe suffer from water scarcity.

Ocean dead zones have been linked to livestock manure and agricultural run-off. As ocean temperatures rise, coral reefs are dying and the water is becoming more acidic as a result. Ocean acidification makes it harder for marine ecosystems to thrive.

‘Gunda’ Review: A Visionary Case for Veganism in Black and White

Joaquin Phoenix serves as an executive producer on Viktor Kossakovsky’s mesmerizing look at the lives of farm animals.

More experience than movie, “Gunda” is a visionary case for veganism in black and white. Russian filmmaker Viktor Kossakovsky’s mesmerizing achievement removes humans from the picture to magnify the small moments in the lives of various farm animals, with his eponymous pig at its center. Over the course of 90 hypnotic minutes, his roving camera observes Gunda and her piglets, a handful of chickens, and a smattering of cows simply going about their lives on an unspecified farmland.

Devoid of music or any other obvious artifice, “Gunda” neither aims to document animal consciousness or anthropomorphize it. Instead, Kossakovsky’s fascinating non-narrative experiment burrows into the center of his subject’s nervous system, meeting the creatures on their own terms in a remarkable plea for empathy that only implores carnivores to think twice by implication. (With vegan activist Joaquin Phoenix signed on as an executive producer, it doesn’t need to make its message overt anyway.)

Joaquin Phoenix Rescues Mother Cow and Newborn Calf Day after Academy Awards Win

BREAKING: A day after winning the Academy Award for Best Actor—and subsequently making a headlining acceptance speech in which he spoke to the plight of mother cows and their babies used in animal agriculture—Joaquin Phoenix helped to liberate a cow and her newborn calf from a Los Angeles slaughterhouse and bring them to Farm Sanctuary, where they will live out the rest of their lives in peace. Phoenix named the mother Liberty and her daughter Indigo.

Phoenix said, “I never thought I’d find friendship in a slaughterhouse, but meeting Anthony [President/CEO of the slaughterhouse] and opening my heart to his, I realize we might have more in common than we do differences. Without his act of kindness, Liberty and her baby calf, Indigo, would have met a terrible demise.”

Phoenix was joined at the slaughterhouse by his fiancée and fellow activist Rooney Mara, both his and Mara’s mothers, Earthlings Director Shaun Monson, Los Angeles Animal Save Founder Amy Jean Davis, and Farm Sanctuary President and Co-founder Gene Baur. The group worked with employees onsite to rescue Liberty—who had recently given birth at the slaughterhouse—and her newborn calf Indigo.

Phoenix added, “My hope is, as we watch baby Indigo grow up with her mom Liberty at Farm Sanctuary, that we’ll always remember that friendships can emerge in the most unexpected places; and no matter our differences, kindness and compassion should rule everything around us.”

It’s hard to imagine an experience more terrifying for a mother—or for her baby—than to give birth at a slaughterhouse. Witnessing the birth tugged at the heartstrings of the slaughterhouse owner—and not for the first time. This is the fifth mother-child bovine rescue secured by Los Angeles Animal Save from Manning Beef.

Phoenix concluded by saying, “Although we will continue to fight for the liberation of all animals who suffer in these oppressive systems, we must take pause to acknowledge and celebrate the victories, and the people who helped achieve them. Shaun Monson, Amy Jean Davis, and the entire LA Animal Save community, have taken their pain of bearing witness and turned it into effective, diplomatic advocacy for the voiceless. As a result, Liberty and Indigo will never experience cruelty or the touch of a rough hand.”

Special thanks to documentary filmmaker Shaun Monson for producing and directing this beautiful video.

Joaquin Phoenix Is Producing A New Documentary On Animal Sentience

Joaquin Phoenix is serving as an executive producer on Gunda, a new documentary focusing on pig sentience.

Created by award-winning Russian filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky, the film examines the daily life of a pig and her three farm animal companions: two cows and a one-legged chicken.

Speaking to Screen Daily, Phoenix said he was “deeply moved by the film” and described it as a “visceral meditation on existence” that he hopes will change the way people perceive animal intelligence.

Gunda is a mesmerizing perspective on sentience within animal species, normally – and perhaps purposely – hidden from our view,” the actor explained.

How Did MEAT Cause The CORONAVIRUS?

As of February 18th, the Coronavirus has over 73,000 reported cases in 25 countries, with most cases stemming from mainland China. Now named COVID-19, the virus originated in Wuhan at a seafood market that also sold wild game - including bats, civets, snakes, and foxes. Scientists have identified a 96.2% genetic similarity between COVID-19 and a bat virus, and a 79.5% genetic similarity to SARS.

Viruses can mutate and jump from species to species. Due to the outbreak's ties to the Wuhan seafood market, it has been shut down temporarily. Environmental activists have called for a permanent ban on such markets, due to the cramped and unsanitary conditions the animals are forced to stay in - a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses.

Other major disease outbreaks have had ties to animal product consumption. Mad Cow disease, also known as Creutzfeldt-Jakob’s disease, originated in - you guessed it - cows. They were fed diseased sheep, infected by a prion called Scrapie, which also caused neurological damage. Banned from selling the sheep meat, farmers fed these diseased "waste products" to its cow herds, which mutated and infected humans.

Salmonella and e. Coli are among some of the other risks of consuming animal products. In April 2019, an e. Coli outbreak linked to ground beef sickened 209 people in 10 states. In 2019, the CDC linked minor outbreaks of salmonella to ground beef, frozen tuna, and ground turkey .

As disease crises and health issues continue to surface, the need to address the treatment of animals is paramount. A global shift away from animal meat could save countless lives.

Measuring our impact on the planet

Joaquin Phoenix has lived up to his surname. Rising from the flames – or, in this case, emerging from the bright white stage lights – he stood before the world: exposed, authentic, vulnerable. Phoenix at Sunday’s Oscar awards ceremony treated us to a uniquely raw, real and rare moment.

Arguably the hottest person on our worryingly overheated planet right now, the world hangs on his every word. His tone was serious and sombre, his words tough and true. Phoenix was described by The Guardian’s Steve Rose as ‘Hollywood’s poster boy of progress’. This backhanded compliment holds some truth.

We’re all aware of the ‘Attenborough Effect’. In the space of just a year, and in large part thanks to David Attenborough’s Blue Planet and Our Planet series, over half of the UK population now uses fewer disposable plastics. The world is waking up to the truth. With each passing year plastic pollution is plummeting and conscious consumerism is on the up.

Joaquin Phoenix Calls Out Injustice in Passionate Oscar Speech

At the 92nd Academy Awards ceremony in Hollywood, activist Joaquin Phoenix delivered an impassioned plea during his Best Actor acceptance speech, imploring the audience to consider the role humanity has had in the world’s injustices, including the ongoing suffering of animals on factory farms.

Said Phoenix, “I think we’ve become very disconnected from the natural world. Many of us are guilty of an egocentric worldview and we believe that we’re the center of the universe. We go into the natural world and we plunder it for its resources. We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow and steal her baby, even though her cries of anguish are unmistakable. Then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal.” More here.

I explore some of the biggest issues including the shooting of seals, who predate the salmon in salmon farms, Acoustic Deterrent Devices that pose a threat to marine mammals like dolphins and porpoises, damage to the sea bed underneath salmon pens and disease outbreaks including sea lice, parasites that attach to the skin of salmon causing lesions and compromising fish welfare.

This is an industry that is worth so much - but we need to see investment in better practice. After all, what’s the price of an ecosystem?"

The OSCARS Go VEGAN – LIVEKINDLY

This week's vegan news: The Oscars is the latest award show to go vegan, following the trend set by the Golden Globes last month. KFC trials more vegan chicken by introducing Beyond Fried Chicken to locations in Nashville, Tennessee and Charlotte, North Carolina. The Swiss public will vote on a proposed constitutional amendment that guarantees better welfare for factory-farmed animals.

Sussex is now the first UK council to ban the fishing practice called trawling, in order to mitigate climate change. France will ban the controversial, commonplace practice of culling male chicks by live-shredding them. The World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus a global health emergency, and it has been linked to wildlife markets.

Brits must cut their beef, lamb, and dairy consumption by 20 percent, according to a new environmental report. Beyond Burgers are now available in more than 1,700 Denny’s restaurants across the U.S. and Canada.

Meet the vegan sensations from Sheffield who now have their own TV show

Sheffield pals Ian Theasby and Henry Firth’s ideas for tasty vegan meals are a big hit, with 26 million watching their YouTube channel and their books selling well. Now they have their own ITV cookery show. Catherine Scott reports.

Less than a decade ago, saying you were vegan would send a shiver down any self-respecting meat eater, who feared they might be sucked into a vegan cult.

Not anymore. ITV’s decision to have the first vegan-only cookery show on a Sunday morning shows just how far we have come and how mainstream and acceptable vegan diets have become. The show, aptly named Living on the Veg, is presented by Henry Firth and Ian Theasby. In their early thirties, with trimmed beards and a jovial, easygoing manner, they epitomise a whole new generation of vegans. The friends, who met when they were 11-year-olds growing up in Sheffield, started their YouTube channel BOSH .TV! nearly four years ago after they both became vegan. They have two million followers, making it the biggest plant-based online food channel and they have three best selling cookery books – the latest BOSH! Healthy Vegan was published last month.

DOUBLESPEAK: Meat and Milk's BIG Secret

Doublespeak is language that obscures the meaning of words, in an effort to make the truth sound more agreeable. The term is inspired by George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian novel 1984, and since then, doublespeak has found its way into marketing efforts - particularly in the animal agriculture industry.

The meat industry uses doublespeak by using terms such as “humane” when referring to slaughter. The dairy industry uses flowery language like “caring dairy” and imagery of cows in green pastures in their advertisements. This stands in stark contrast to the reality of factory farmed milk, and the abuse that has been revealed at operations like Fairlife. Eggs are marketed with newspeak, too. “Cage-Free” eggs makes it sound like the birds have total freedom, when most are still in overcrowded factory farm conditions. The fishing industry uses terms like “dolphin safe” tuna, and Marine Stewardship Council (or MSC) certified environmentally-friendly fish when these terms are incredibly difficult to regulate. Due to bycatch and overfishing, neither of those promises hold any merit.

Are we ignoring warnings on climate change?

Our oceans are heating up, and fast. Sea temperatures in 2019 were the highest on record. Oceans are the clearest measure of climate change, since they absorb 90 per cent of the world's heat. Warmer seas mean more intense storms, droughts, floods and wildfires. The study is the latest warning on the climate crisis facing our planet. However, greenhouse gas emissions are still at record levels. Are we starting to tune out to the constant stream of bad news on the climate? If so, how should we change the conversation? Presenter: Martine Dennis


Are we ignoring warnings on climate change? | Inside Story

As Australia's ruinous wildfires continue to spread, so does disinformation. There has been fake news, conspiracy theories on social media, and even claims the fires were the work of 200 arsonists. A significant amount of this content went viral, sowing confusion and discord in an already rattled population. While much of this has been the work of trolls, mainstream media outlets such as Rupert Murdoch’s Sky News and The Australian newspaper have also been criticised for their coverage. The debate is particularly contentious in a country where climate change has long been a controversial topic that often figures as an election issue. In this show, we will hear the latest news from the epicenter of the disaster, dig into the disinformation campaigns and media controversy, and look at how indigenous people are responding to the devastation.

10 Must-Watch Nature and Animal Documentaries in 2020!

Documentaries have become one of the most powerful ways to shine a light on various issues taking place around the world and inspire people to get involved. Through these influential films, we can enter into another world that we wouldn’t usually have access to, from the Antarctic tundra to the deepest parts of the sea.

As technology and filmmakers become more skilled, documentaries become even more powerful. They are able to show every intricate detail, from a melting glacier to each hair on an endangered orangutan’s head, making these issues a reality and bringing them to the forefront of the viewer’s mind.

For those of us who are fighting for our planet, documentaries provide an outlet to inspire others to think with compassion, show respect for the earth, and make a change. Read on for a list of the most inspiring documentaries that were released in 2019 to enjoy with friends, family, and loved ones this year.

1. Our Planet


Our Planet | Official Trailer [HD] | Netflix

This was, perhaps, the most monumental documentary of 2019. Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, “Our Planet” takes viewers to some of the most beautiful parts of the world and introduces the extraordinary wildlife who live there. The documentary opens our eyes to the fact that these places, and the animals who call it home, are severely threatened by human action. The never-before-seen footage of walruses tumbling to their death as the videographers helplessly watched on shook the nation and opened up a fresh conversation around the perils of climate change. 

2. Our Planet - Behind the Scenes
3. Ice on Fire
4. Sea of Shadows

5. The Animal People


The Animal People - Official Trailer [HD] (2019)

Executive produced by vegan actor and environmentalist Joaquin Phoenix, “The Animal People” follows six animal rights activists who find themselves indicted as terrorists for leading a controversial campaign to shut down the largest animal testing laboratory in the world. The feature documentary features extensive interviews that span more than a decade and rare archival footage of surveillance recordings, wiretaps, and government documents, depicting an unnerving portrait of what happens when activism challenges the institutions of power.

6. Penguins

7. Meat: A Threat to Our Planet


Meat: A Threat to Our Planet? Trailer | BBC Trailers

In this BBC documentary, science and wildlife presenter Liz Bonnin travels the world to highlight the dark truths behind the meat industry and the impact it has on our environment. “Meat: A Threat to Our Planet” takes viewers from Texas to the Amazon rainforest to unveil the negative effects of meat production, like biodiversity loss, deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions.

Apocalypse Cow: How Meat Killed the Planet, C4 — a radical take-down of food farming

Vegetarians and virtuous eaters should be warned that any feelings of smugness or superiority will quickly dissipate on watching George Monbiot’s radical take-down of food farming.

A scientist proposes that one day his grandchildren will be amazed and disgusted to learn that human beings actually used to eat eggs. Even idyllic organic farms have too great an environmental footprint, when the growth in the human population is taken into account. “The food industry is destroying the living world,” Monbiot proclaims.

I tell you without hesitation that The Animal People is the most important documentary of 2019 without a doubt in my mind. It way very well be the most important film of the decade not only in animal rights but within anyone that thinks free speech is important for a just society.

The film highlights the literal trials and tribulations of SHAC Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty an animal rights organization dedicated to shutting down Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) a contractor of animal testing for various industries most often pharmaceutical.

We follow the story of SHAC and its founders/activists Lauren Gazzola, Kevin Kjonaas, Jake Conroy, Josh Harper, Andy Stepanian, and Darius Fullmer as they give HLS the hell they deserve. The FBI, State Police, Local Police and an entire alphabet soup of government orgs and entities conspire to twist and subvert the truth. The story of SHAC and what happen to those in it that were placed on trial is both a warning message and a message of hope to stand against what we are still up against even today in the animal rights movement. There’s so much I wish I could discuss that happens in the film but I don’t want to spoil it for you. It’s a must watch if you’re any kind of activist but especially an animal rights activist so go watch it right now. You’ll cry, get rightfully angry and feel goosebumps through out as brave activists smash labs and rescue animals, get hurt by police and railroaded in the courts.

INVESTIGATION: The Brutality of the 2019 Gadhimai Festival

Animal Equality was once again on the ground working to end animal sacrifice at the Gadhimai festival, an event where thousands of animals were brutally slaughtered by festival attendees. The religious festival, which takes place in Southern Nepal with violent animal sacrifice as the main component, happens every 5 years and has been subject to intense backlash from animal protection organizations like ours.

CAN YOU EAT MEAT ETHICALLY?

"I was invited onto ABC's The Drum to join a panel with 3 people who opposed my view by supporting the exploitation and slaughter of animals for human consumption. My view is that supporting animal exploitation is unethical, unnecessary, unsustainable and unhealthy.

I'm very grateful they had me on to share my perspective. I wish I had more time to go over more points and also wish I worded a few things differently and overall pushed a bit harder, but overall I think it was a great segment and I will learn from it for next time.

What did you think of the discussion?" James Aspey

Where do you get your protein ... a new eBook from Hench Herbivore

This book was designed to finally put an end to that age old question about where vegans get their protein from. I talk through my journey from being the biggest meat eater that most people have ever met to where I am today, some misconceptions about protein, how much protein you really need and where to get it from. I then present you with 30 delicious, healthy, high protein recipes including:

  • Morning meals
  • Dips and spread
  • Soups, chillies, stews and more
  • Salads and nibbles
  • Hearty mains
  • Baked savoury delights
  • And healthy treats.

All recipes have full macros included and the book can be downloaded on multiple devices.

While it’s true that the recipes in this book are perfect for those requiring a larger protein intake (e.g. strength and physique athletes), they are based around healthful whole plant foods, making them suitable for all. My aim for this book is to show you just how easy it is for ANYONE to meet their protein needs with plants so every recipe was created with that in mind. I didn’t want to create just another cookbook; I wanted to create something that really, finally, made it clear that protein is not an issue!
