Today we are bearing witness at both the Manning Beef Company & Farmer John’s Packing Company and stood up for what we believe in.
We bear witness to raise awareness to the unethical treatment of animals that is socially acceptable. Just imagine if these were your animals— your cats and dogs— what’s the difference?
These pigs and cows travel thousands of miles in their own feces without food and water. They are scared, exhausted, often deceased upon arrival or suffering from visible cysts. We come here to show them both love and compassion. We are continuously mocked (even by the truckers as you can see), but we show everyone kindness and are here for the animals. Seven thousand of these pigs are slaughtered each day and they are only six months old. Can you imagine the outrage if these were 6 month old puppies?
How do you love one and not the other?
Please take the time to educate yourself on where your food comes from and what you are putting into your body. I don’t expect everyone to share my morals, but if anyone would like to join us you are more than welcome! We are grateful to @laanimalsave/ @hazeleyedvegan for putting on these amazing vigils each week. I especially love meeting such like minded beautiful individuals with the same passion and drive I have for animals. #BeTheChange
I see you. I love you. .
it doesn't get much better than this crunchy almond butter + blueberries on gluten free toast did you know that by going vegan you're in the good company of people like Evanna Lynch, Woody Harrellson, Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, #StrangerThings star Sadie Sink, and a multitude of athletes and sports stars?!
vegan pizza made especially for us by the friendly chef at CAT as soon as he heard we were vegan we got talking about vegan cheese and Gary Yoursofsky. he said he was trying to turn the whole of the cafe vegan - i'm hoping he succeeds (this pizza tasted incredible btw) #vegan
veggie burgers for dayssss if you ever have the opportunity to choose an alternative to your standard burger that's cruelty-free, environmentally-friendly, and infinitely healthier, why wouldn't you? they taste a lot better too;)) #vegan
Documentary - Food Inc. Link for the movie in comments.
One of the best eye opening documentaries I've ever seen in a while. It exposes how the Corporates control the food industry right from what kinda seeds to use, crops to grow, how to process & pack them, the workforce they use, tricking the customers into buying FRESH FARM PRODUCE wherein actually they're all produced in industry scale. It's astounding and scary that if we just take time and research about the foods and stuff that we intake, we'll find them to be not worthy enough to eat at all. Take time and watch this documentary. #foodinc#documentary#eyeopener#consumerawareness#injustice#agriculture#monsanto#corporatelies#foodindustry
Nailed it!! Just finished watching Food Inc on @netflix. Our food system is being run by billion dollar corporations that have a veil pulled over the general public’s eyes. Corruption and greed run rampant within the food industry and into our government run agencies. Monsanto is suing farmers into submission by any means possible. Factory farming of animals has become a disgusting industry that would not be tolerated if people really knew what was going on. .
So what can be done? The most simple and powerful thing that anyone can do is vote with their dollar!! Buy direct from a local farm. Go too farmers markets. Start your own garden!! .
Organic/natural foods and products have exploded in popularity. The industry will always change too accommodate the consumer. Lastly is of course spread this information!! The only way this changes is when the majority decide its gone to far. #foodinc#monsanto#pesticides#organicfarming#buylocal#gmo#nutrition#primalhealth#farming#corruption#followthemoney#foodismedicine#organicfood#keto#bulletproof#biohacking#votewithyourlifestyle#votewithyourdollar
