These three rescue hens were backyard hens. The human who kept them for their eggs was going to kill them because they’re old and they don’t lay as many eggs as before.
This is your welfarist dream. This is what your “properly fed and cared for” bullshit means. This is what happens when you insist on seeing sentient beings as mere resources. This is what happens when you’re a speciesist fuck.

Basically…this is all we are asking. Respect the animals…like you, yourself, want to be respected… Being vegan is how you do that.
Don’t use them for any reason, don’t let them be harmed, don’t allow them to be slaughtered.

These words by Audre Lorde… This last line…chills…

"And at last you’ll know with surpassing certainty that only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth. And that is not speaking.”
_______________________

“I was going to die, sooner or later, whether or not I had even spoken myself. My silences had not protected me. Your silences will not protect you…. What are the words you do not yet have? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence? We have been socialised to respect fear more than our own need for language.

I began to ask each time: “What’s the worst that could happen to me if I tell this truth?” Unlike women in other countries, our breaking silence is unlikely to have us jailed, “disappeared” or run off the road at night. Our speaking out will irritate some people, get us called bitchy or hypersensitive and disrupt some dinner parties. And then our speaking out will permit other women to speak, until laws are changed and lives are saved and the world is altered forever.

Next time, ask: What’s the worst that will happen? Then push yourself a little further than you dare. Once you start to speak, people will yell at you. They will interrupt you, put you down and suggest it’s personal. And the world won’t end.

And the speaking will get easier and easier. And you will find you have fallen in love with your own vision, which you may never have realised you had. And you will lose some friends and lovers, and realise you don’t miss them. And new ones will find you and cherish you…. [a]s I think Emma Goldman said, “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution.” And at last you’ll know with surpassing certainty that only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth. And that is not speaking.”

~ Audre Lorde


I posted recently about little Geraldine being saved from a dairy farm.. Santuario Gaia had great hopes that she could be saved from the umbilical infection that had sickened her……but sadly, her condition worsened and she died yesterday…   😢
The human addiction to dairy (meat and eggs) comes at a horrific, painful and life ending price to other animals… Something has to break through and force people to see what they just do not want to face. The fact that innocent lives end in terrible ways, just because people are too greedy to make a change and go vegan…
If you are not vegan, my question is… “If you know these facts and you view the pictures and videos of suffering farm animals…how can you keep allowing it to happen? What will make you understand that you are contributing to the agonizing pain and slaughter of innocent beings on the most massive scale ever seen?
What will make YOU change?

Animal liberation is the most difficult liberation struggle of all because speciesism is primordial and universal. Speciesism is arguably the first of any form of domination or hierarchy and it has spread like a deadly virus throughout the entire planet and all of human history. The problem is not limited to Western culture or to the modern world, such that there is some significant utopian past or radical alternative to recover. The problem is the human species itself, which but for rare exceptions is violent, destructive, and imperialistic. Universally, humans have vested interests in exploiting animals and think they have a God-given right to do so. To change these attitudes is to change the very nerve center of human consciousness. That is our task – no more and no less.
