Repost from @ranadheer_k_reddy - #Repost @the_wild_ibanez - The visuals on the Laughing Cow ads and marketing don't add up, because the truth wasn't included.
1. To keep them lactating at maximum yields, cows are artificially, repeatedly and forcibly impregnated and sexually abused year after year, creating a huge surplus of calves, regarded as waste and by-products.
2. 21,000,000 dairy calves are slaughtered for veal or beef every year globally.
3. Virtually all dairy calves are stolen from their mothers within hours of birth in order to maximize profit. 97% of newborn dairy calves are forcibly removed from their mothers within the first 24 hours. The rest are removed in a matter of days. On so-called humane dairy farms, calves are often taken within the first hour of birth as separation of mother and calf is considered less stressful when they have not been allowed to bond.
4. Due to extensive biological manipulation, today’s dairy cows produce up to 12 times more milk than they would naturally produce to feed a calf.
5. Trapped in a cycle of forced impregnation, perpetual lactation and near constant confinement, most dairy cows’ overworked bodies begin producing less milk at around 4-5 years of age, at which point they are slaughtered. Their worn out bodies become ground beef and hamburgers. In natural conditions, cows can live about 25 years.
Many people are so comfortably wrapped in such thick webs of lies that the atrocious truth of which they are an essential part of bothers and angers them.
Don’t buy the humane myth and the marketing lies. Eliminating dairy and living vegan is easy. Most importantly, it's the right thing to do, and our moral duty.
There is NO laughing cow. She is crying, suffering, and in pain. She needs us.
The time to wake up from the deception was yesterday. But today is still a perfect day to do so.
It’s a peculiar thing when people tell me that they only buy free range eggs or that the flesh they’re eating was murdered ‘humanely’.. I wish people would stop and hear themselves say these things, as they are so flawed. No one can humanely kill someone who does not want to die. Please make that connection, stop letting the world tell you it’s okay to murder a particular animal because it’s ‘normal’ and ‘humane’. Would you condone someone killing a dog? Pigs are SMARTER then dogs! Think about that next time you think “Mmm bacon”. Please #maketheconnection and #livevegan for the animals, your health and the earth 🐄🌱🌏 Credit @r_pilram
I can’t stop thinking about this sushi roll from @nobonesbeachclub !! Look at the size of this thing 😍
What is it? The Grilled Volcano Roll. Grilled sushi roll filled with spicy white beans rolled up with nori, carrots, red peppers, cabbage and scallions topped with crispy wasabi peas and sesame seeds and drizzled with sweet soy glaze and wasabi aioli. Someone come visit me so I can have an excuse to go back. 💁🏻♀️👋🏽🔥

This picture was taken last year when hundreds of activists walk into a Slaughterhouse during the 2017 DxE Convergence and rescued three animals in broad daylight.
Eddie the lamb was one of them, who you can see here being carried out to freedom. Now he lives happy, safe and free in an animal sanctuary. ❤️ Let's keep working hard to achieve total animal liberation in one generation!✊🏽🐷🐔🐐❤️
They deserve so much better. They suffer just because they’re different. It’s oppression and discrimination. Pigs, cows, chickens and fish are no different than dogs and cats. The only difference is your perception. End speciesism!
Today's resource recommendation is a celebration of animal sanctuaries across the world who work tirelessly to care for rescued farm animals and help non-vegans to make the connection. There are so many amazing sanctuaries out there putting in hard work to save as many animals as possible but I'm only going to be able to name a handful in this post. Show them your support by following and donating if you can!
First is @barnsanctuary. Founded by @danmckerna and help run by @anikaholt, @christinewagnr and @tmjmckernan, this amazing sanctuary in Michigan cares for cows, sheep, chickens, turkeys, pigs and more, giving abused farm animals a new start in life where they can be loved.
Second is @tribeanimalsanctuary. This wonderful sanctuary in Central Scotland is home to Highland cows, goats, pigs, sheep, donkeys, turkeys, hens, dogs and cats. This great sanctuary is connected to @tribetattoooffical, so if you're in Glasgow or Edinburgh looking for a vegan friendly tattoo parlour check them out!
Third is @bfas.org.uk. This fantastic sanctuary in England has been dedicated to rescuing and rehoming animals since 2008. Home to cows, goats, pigs, horses and much more! Brook Farm Animal Sanctuary is supported by @heartcureclothing, who donate all their profits to help care for the animals, so for some awesome, ethically made, vegan clothing shop at Heart Cure and help out this amazing sanctuary.
Fourth is @floridarescuefarm. This wonderful sanctuary in Duette, Florida is dedicated to providing safety and shelter for animals in need; caring for chickens, rabbits, ducks, goats, cows and other animals. To help this hardworking sanctuary you can give one off donations or sponsor an animal so @floridaresucefarm can continue to care for these beautiful animals.
Fifth and final is @bigwoollybastard, a very special one for me! The Karass Sanctuary for Farmed Animals is an awesome sanctuary in Scotland home to pigs, sheep, hens, turkeys and more. A few months ago the wonderful people at Karass rescued some chicks and named one Georgia after me! Show this awesome sanctuary some love and support as they prepare to move to a bigger location.
Alternative structures can achieve little without a #new#vision of how reality works. The real conversion confronting humanity today is a #transformation of #consciousness rather than mechanistic changes in human or social behaviour.
I am consciously advocating a #subversive#strategy for future political engagement. Current models of political activity are largely beyond reform. We need to withhold our support and redirect our #imagination and energy into different, more egalitarian, ecological and sustainable ways for relating to #creation and to other beings. —#RichardRohr @cacradicalgrace 🌐✊🏽🌎👁🦋 image via @awellfedworld of the amazing @artofcompassionproject 🏹🌙💕⭐️🌈☀️🙏🏾
We have been experimenting with raw food! Today is day two! Collard wraps in the first picture was lunch yesterday with a creamy walnut dipping sauce. Second picture was lunch today: chickpea salad, side of cheezy hummus, and then tonight’s dinner is zucchini noodles and a cashew-walnut-pesto cream sauce! 😋🌱💚
We have the capacity to grow beyond ego, duality, and supremacy into a new identity, one that holds space for everyone to #belong and be #loved . But all hope that human consciousness will evolve in such a way is dependent on our ability to see and act on behalf of the marginalized, disenfranchised, and oppressed bodies with whom we share this time and place. ✊🏽🌐🌱#livevegan#decolonize#wakeup#ahimsa#trueheart#namaste 💛
I have been transitioning my way of eating slowly into less process vegan food to more healing foods. My goal has always been to eat as pure as possible but I find that challenging. I have been learning so much information from @medicalmedium and I can now identify the changes in my mood and body depending on what I am consuming. I felt intrigued to go on this journey after he posted @holistic.healing.heather story. I too have a sun allergy that has almost disappeared thanks to plant foods. What a beautiful journey. ✨🙌🏼 Does anyone else find it hard to stick to simple foods as I do?
I think what has been helping me lately is having 1 meal a day that is cooked and abundant but aside from that I am sticking to raw/pure/non processed foods as much as possible and my body is thanking me. 🍓
Also, check out this beautiful produce I got today from @wholefoods @wholefoodswa
I'm taking this pledge to refuse to sit at a table where animal's bodies are being eaten.
to show people it's not okay to eat animals.
to give animals a voice.
I'm wearing this fork bracelet to encourage people to ask.
to take a stand against animal cruelty.
And I'm also wearing this fork bracelet for me. I am thankful to all other animal rights activists that encouraged me to take the

Are you paying for their suffering? Are you prepared to look these animals in the eyes and say “your life matters less than my tastebuds”? -
Why do we think it is natural, normal or necessary to put sentient individuals through immense torment just so that we can eat their dead bodies in a sandwich?
Ask yourself: If you saw a dog being treated like this, would you still sit idly by? And if so, what is the difference between a dog and a pig, that makes it acceptable to harm one but not the other? #bevegan
Currently on our way to Tennessee for our yearly family vacation, but I can’t stop thinking @reveriebakeshop in Texas! We may have went over board with the treats but it was totally worth it!!from left to right👉🏼we got the brownie cheesecake, lemon poppyseed muffin, sopapilla cheesecake bar, and of course a cheese and sausage kolache (which is a Texas staple)🤤💗 honestly if you’re in the Dallas/ Ft. Worth area of Texas do yourself a favor and get here as fast as you can!
On the 8th of May we started a campaign to find our longest resident (2 years and 7 months) an amazing home. As a result of this post, our big gorgeous ruby eyed Himalayan, Luna, found her forever home with the incredible human @miss_becki .
Known at the rescue for her fiesty nature and tenacity, we were disheartened to think that no one would give Luna a chance. Well as you can see, she finally got her chance ❤️. Luna has became a gorgeous cuddle bun, but she has not lost her sass! We are SO happy for Luna and her human, and know that the bond they share will last a lifetime.
If you would like to meet any of our bunny residents and give them the forever home that they deserve, please be in contact. Us and the buns would love to hear from you! ❤️
Vigil for Aquatic Animals 7.14.18 Carollton, TX. H Mart: groceries & more (animal cruelty). In one video, a worker slams a fish's head with a mallet, but they (the fish) were still alive and more than likely conscious and in excruciating pain. You can see the fish flipping their tail before the worker strikes their head with the mallet again.
This is now the 2nd time that DFW Animal Save have bore witness at this place of so much suffering. It's all so unnecessary, and with love, we will put an end to it all. Please leave all animals and their secretions off off of your plate. Live vegan for all life, the environment, health. Choose nonviolence, cease to participate in the suffering, death, and destruction.
