Save the Cameroon Rainforest

Stop the Herakles Farms’ project

A US company is planning to tear down a chunk of rainforest the size of 100,000 soccer fields for a palm oil project. 

The area of forest is home to thousands of Cameroonian people who rely on it for subsistence farming; people who stand to lose thier land if the project goes ahead. Their peaceful attempts to stop the project have been met with threats, arrests, violence, and beatings.

The forest is also home to endangered wildlife like African forest elephants and the Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee subspecies.

It’s time for us to take up the fight.

Send an email to the CEO of Herakles Farms, demanding that the company drops its palm oil plans in Cameroon, committing to a ‘zero-deforestation’ policy.

“If I am to be a voice for animals, then how should I speak? Am I to whisper, when they are screaming in pain? Am I to be calm, when they tremble in fear? Am I to shout for mercy, as their throats are being slit? Tell me how I need to speak, for you to grant them their freedom.”

If you caught your kid raising cats in tiny boxes, forcing them to live in their own feces without clean air or sunlight, pulling their teeth and claws out with pliers to keep them from hurting each other, then skinning them alive to make collars to sell to their friends, you’d rush him to a psychiatrist.

But you support that very behavior every time you buy meat, eggs, dairy or fur.

Everyone should go vegan.

How could any logical person be outraged that the dead corpse that he chose to consume, was from a different animal than expected!?Horse meat can be consumed in the same manner that a cows flesh is, there is no added danger nor any considerable ecological damage.A cow experiences emotions and feels pain no less than a horse,fish,turkey,chicken,cat… So whats all this fuss about???This hypocritical outrage, about the horse meat that burger king and the UK retailers have been selling, just proves how perverted and disconnected our culture and moral outlook is and how little we choose to know about the origins of our butchered victims. Also another sickening observation would be that, if they feel confident enough to connivingly sell, such a known taboo “product” what else are they hiding?

Amen!

I’m the best kind of Vegan.

No really.

I dont give a shit what you eat.

Like your bacon? Eggs? BEEF?

Eat it in front of me, I dont care.


Why don’t I care? Because it’s your body, not mine. You make the calls about what goes into it and what comes out of it.


And vegans who try to make you feel like an ass for eating your double down should shut the fuck up because its none of their damn business what you eat.

Rational Vegan out, bitches.

“Mostly” vegan isn’t vegan.
“Sort of vegan” isn’t vegan.
“Vegan but I eat honey” isn’t vegan.
“Vegan but I buy and wear leather/fur/wool” isn’t vegan.
“Vegan except for the occasional egg” isn’t vegan.

Stop it.

How emotionally disconnected people are from the billions of non human animals that are slaughtered each year sickens me. When it happens to a cat or dog it is abuse, but when it happens to a cow, chicken or pig it is just industry. Your cognitive dissonance is literally lethal.

It is easy to strip all resemblance of life from these animals when they are killed in slaughterhouses, dismembered by butchers, packaged then conveniently placed in the supermarket for you to purchase. Their suffering is kept out of sight to keep it out of your mind, but make no mistake:

  • Your food is a product of oppression.
  • Your food is a product of exploitation
  • Your food is a product of murder.
  • Your food was once their life.

And no, I will NEVER stop reminding you of this.

I respect your right to have these feelings and I respect your right to make the choice to be vegan.

Can’t you respect my choice to eat meat?

I’m not asking for you to endorse it or change your lifestyle, I just want you to respect my choice. 

Don’t throw your beliefs in my face, I don’t do it to you.

You’re no better than people who force their religious views on others. Do you want to be self-righteous? Because I’d love to hear how veganism makes you better than me. 

Demanding others to “respect your choice” when your choice infringes on the rights and well-being of other sentient beings is absolutely absurd and akin to serial killers, child molesters, and animal abusers also demanding respect for their choices. We will respect your choice when you respect their life.

Vegans do not push anything onto you. The act of killing others to eat their flesh is the ultimate form of pushing your beliefs onto others. Religious views are on the basis of faith. Reminding you that your meat is the product of a living, breathing, feeling animal that struggled, bled, and fought for his life is merely a fact.

I will never respect your wish to remain ignorant to the unbelievable pain and suffering your choices inflict.

You seem to think that the behavior of eating meat is some kind of choice and by doing so is abusing the animal’s rights? I’m sorry but since when the fuck did animals have a rights or moral system towards it’s prey? If a bear, lion, tiger or other sort of carnivore ate us would it be considered murder? would that animal be put on some sort of trial or be punished for violating out rights to not be eaten. No. Why? Because that is how nature works, animals eat each other (that includes humans) and just as any other meat eating animal hunts it’s prey we have too it’s just now we are much much more efficient in it.

I’ll “respect” an animals rights not to be eaten the day an animal respects mine. 

image

Yes, look how efficient animal agriculture is. Aren’t human so smart and efficient? Let’s give our self a big pat on the back.

What an animal does out of survival does not justify what you do out of selfishness. A lion can not live on a plant based diet, you CAN.  

And it’s because you have morals and the ability to distinguish right and wrong that you are obligated to act upon them and not contribute to unnecessary killing for the sake of taste. 

Vegans, yeah, so peaceful, so elegant, so open minded, certainly they would never insult an omnivore or assume that we kill just because the meat tastes good

image

Still have yet to meet an agreeable vegan.

Why?

Because a polite vegan doesn’t tell you they’re a vegan, or if they do, it’s merely a passing comment or to answer a question.

How is this concept so difficult to understand.

You have no idea how many times I have thought the same thing. It’s like these people don’t get that meat-eaters have the freedom to eat what they want, and vegans have the freedom to shut up about it. That’s what freedom is all about. Change has never taken place when people have the nerve to actually bring it up.

They don’t understand that their ideas are something that has to be kept to themselves. The last thing this society needs is the idea of veganism being presented ad nauseum on billboards, commercials, newspaper ads, magazine ads, internet ads, etc….Only industries that are shameless in their ideas would so obnoxiously promote it, which in turn makes it mainstream, ergo, the normal perspective.

I’m just glad we live in a world where the right kind of ideas are being presented in our culture.

It is vital that when educating our children’s brains we do not neglect to educate their hearts by nurturing their compassionate nature.

and then we humanely impregnate the same mothers 4-5 times more on our humane rape racks, repeating the cycle until the mothers are “spent” which is when we humanely send them off to slaughter too making room for the next generation of milk and meat machines. 
humane humans are great aren’t they?



I am sensing sarcasm, and I for one am not a fan of using such a tactic to prove such an obvious point.
