The idea that some lives matter less, is the root of all that is wrong with the world. πŸ“ We see you. We care. We are sorry. We are fighting. ❀ #melbournechickensave #govegan

When they try to silence you for being the voice of the voiceless, speak louder. ✌🏼️ #endspeciesism #friendsnotfood #melbournepigsave #melbournechickensave #vegan

A Melbourne Pig Save vigil earlier this week.Β The pigs were curious right until the end. They sniffed and licked us. They accepted water. They sought hope.Β 
It's heartbreaking.

This is my incredibly cute friend Shirley. Every day I look at her and want to squeeze her because she is just so adorable.
Shirley was born in a factory in Victoria that sells chickens to battery hen farms. The runty sickly female chicks and all the rooster chicks are considered wastage. They are ground up alive in massive grinders.
That's where Shirley was headed when she was rescued from the conveyor belt that was taking her to her death the day she hatched. In fact her little downy feathers had not even had time to dry and turn fluffy.
Her siblings are now in steel cages for the rest of their tragic lives. They have less than an A4 sheet of paper in space each. Their lives are miserable.
So this is what you support when you buy foods containing egg. Your money supports people who incarcerate beautiful little individuals like my friend Shirley. #rescueanimals #rescuedandloved #brightsidefarmsanctuary #chicken #melbournechickensave #cagefree #loveanimals #egg #friendship #govegan

I am lonely, broken, and unadored.
At 4am I will start my day to fight for the rights of those who cannot fight themselves.
My heart will break, but that's okay because nothing I feel could compare to what they suffer.
Stepping back from activism is not who I am, but I am learning that it's okay to not be at every action.
I don't think my heart will ever heal, but I am doing the best that I can.
Please bear with/forgive me. --------------------------------------------------

I choose to live vegan for countless reasons, this is one of them! #govegan #eggfree #veganeasy #iloveanimals #notnatural #melbournechickensave #ilovechickens #eggs #egg

We had a tiny little visitor at the joint Melbourne Pig Save and Melbourne Chicken Save rally on Saturday 🐣
Seven (saved on the seventh) is a broiler hen who was destined for slaughter. Her rescuers found her discarded with the 'spent' laying hens marked for death. With a lot of love and care we can hope that she can live a long and healthy life. To save even more precious little chickens, please leave them and their eggs off your plate ❀

Yesterday, I woke up at 8AM sleep deprived and slightly hungover and drove to Albert Lake to be the voice for the forgotten species at the RSPCA Million Paws Walk along with 30-40 activists from various Melbourne Save groups (Cow Save, Chicken Save, Pig Save and Goat Save) with Animal Activists Australia & Animal Activist Collective. We were not protesting the walk, merely raising awareness of the fact that while the RSPCA are "against animal cruelty" they actively support and promote the animal agriculture industry. The Animal Ag industry is wrought with acts of cruelty, abuse and torture. And we were there to show people, and tell them about the smorgasbord of kinder choices and also, to pat doggos and talk about chocolate 🌿🍫#RSPCA #millionpawswalk2017 #millionpawswalk #animalactivism #activist #animalrights #animalliberation #animalcruelty #inhumane #vegan #veganactivist #vegans #melbournevegans #choosekindness #chooselife #choosecompassion #animalliberationfront #govegan #vegansofig #vegansofinstagram #vegancommunity #veganactivism #directaction #melbournecowsave #savemovement #melbournechickensave #melbournepigsave

Let me just clarify something for everyone because it seems people are confused. ---------------------------------------------------
Yesterday, myself and around 50 other activists from various different groups got together to do a peaceful protest at RSPCA's Million Paws Walk. ---------------------------------------------------
We were NOT there to protest the walk itself. We were there to show the darker side of an organisation who claims to love and protect animals "great and small." ---------------------------------------------------
"As a not-for-profit program, the RSPCA Approved Farming Scheme is funded by fees received from brands which use the RSPCA Approved logo. Assessment of farms as well as the management and promo on of the Scheme is en rely funded by these fees. "
The scheme is funded by the very industry they're "trying to fix" which is clearly very highly corrupt. ---------------------------------------------------
In 20 years, the RSPCA's approved farming scheme has allowed over 805 million deaths of hens, pigs, chickens, and turkeys.
I ask you, do you see Edgar's Mission approved stamps on any animal products in your supermarket? No, you don't.
Because it makes no sense for an animal rights organisation to approve the death of millions of animals. ---------------------------------------------------
The RSPCA do a lot of good for domestic animals the ones people keep as pets eg, cats, dogs, rabbits, etc but when it comes to farm animals all compassion just goes out the door.
This is why we protest. This is why we fight for the animals. For ALL animals. Not just the ones we share our homes with. ---------------------------------------------------
And before you try to defend the condition the animals live in, do some research, because it's absolutely no different to any other factory farm.
They are all just places of hell on earth. ---------------------------------------------------

Mother's Day memorial service hosted by Melbourne Chicken Save yesterday to pay respects for all the innocent lives lost so unnecessarily. We are sorry 😞🐣πŸ₯#mothersday #vegansofig #veganforlife #veganfortheanimals #allcreaturesgreatandsmall #melbournechickensave #wearesorry #animalactivism #animalactivist #avoiceforthevoiceless #vegansofaustralia

Activists with Melbourne Chicken Save left a remembrance on the fence of the once operating Chicken Slaughterhouse Baiada. They still operate but the chickens are no longer slaughtered here. The photos are of those chickens witnessed going into the slaughterhouse during months of bearing witness. #baiada #slaughterhouse #melbournechickensave #thesavemovement #thesavemovementaustralia #activist #activistlife #animalliberation #vegansofig #vegansofinstagram #someonenotsomething #sentientbeings #chickens #chicken #govegan #veganforlife #veganfortheanimals #mothersday #veganrevolutionary

Today we payed our respects to the billions of lives taken at Baiada Poultry, now they have stopped slaughtering and will only be processing the dead corpses here. We cable tied 150 images of chicks that Melbourne Chicken Save has had encounters with over the years and held a 1 minute silence for them.
Every being values their life the same, weather it be a chicken, human, dog, horse, pig or a cat, every being wants to live, and deserves the right the live.
Rest in peace little babies ❀

This beautiful baby was terrified. Yes, baby. Such a young pig who was ripped from their mother after birth and raised for slaughter.
She was terrified of us, and didn't want to come close to us. She didn't want anyone to touch her.
Today was a very tough day.
To all the mothers who don't get to love their babies, I am sorry.
To all the animals past, present, and future who are raised purely for selfish human consumption, I am sorry.
For all the animals who have not felt human compassion, I am sorry.
You will always be in my heart, and I will never stop fighting for you.
You can help end this suffering. Go vegan. ------------------------------------------------

6-8 week old babies. Baby blue eyes, staring off into nothingness. Knowing full well where they are going. Snuggling into the unnatural and oversized breast of a neighbour hen. Chirping out of fear. In the 3 short hours that we were there, we witnessed more than 1000 babies (per truck) enter in packed cages, and sent to slaughter. We witnessed around 3 dead chicks, that sadly will be thrown out as wastage. I told myself, that I'd be strong, for them. But next minute I was rolling under a van to get to the truck. They deserve MORE than this and they are MORE than your meal. They are babies, please choose kindly. Go vegan, for them πŸ“πŸŒ±

Melbourne Chicken Save held a vigil at La Ionica Slaughterhouse for International Respect for Chickens Day also in solidarity as we awaited Anita Krajnc's verdict. Bearing Witness and spending time with the chickens in their last moments. There are 500,000 slaughtered in this one facility every week. That's 500,000 innocent sentient beings murdered. We are Sorry, We are Trying. #someonenotsomething #chickens #laionica #laionicachicken #meetyourmeat #respectforchickens #activism #activistlife #animalliberation #govegan #veganism #melbournechickensave #evolens #savemovement #savemovementaustralia #anitakrajnc #vegansofig #vegansofinstagram #veganrevolutionary

Tonight we bore witness at La Ionica Poultry in Thomastown.
They were transported to the slaughterhouse in tiny crates in freezing conditions, thousands came through the gates in the few hours we were there.
They were covered in faeces chirping in fear. I witnessed dead chicks that didn't make the trip, chicks so sick they were fitting, multiple chicks taking their last breaths in front of me their eyes still blue because they were still only babies. Just 6 weeks old and now they're dead, hung up by the ankles, their throats slit, bodys scalded and dismembered.
Look into her eyes. When you eat chicken, your eating a 6 week old baby like her, she deserved to live, she deserved to live a life full of love. Please make compassionate choices, go vegan.

Rest in peace little babies, we're sorry we couldn't save you, we love you, we won't forget you <3

Easter Eggs: not all they're cracked up to be. Are you free to join me today (12th April) in the Melbourne CBD (Australia) for at least 30 minutes to hand out some Vegan Easter Eggs & flyers? We'll be meeting 12pm onwards at the Bourke St Mall (outside Myer) standing up for the billions of bobby calves & baby chicks that are killed worldwide in the dairy & egg industries. Please repost this if you have time! πŸ™πŸ» 🐣🐀

50 activists, cold but not deterred by La Ionica dangerous drivers and hard ass employees. See you next time, because there will be a next time and a next time and a next time. Get the picture. It would be easier to work with us rather than against us for these peaceful vigils. #melbournechickensave #peacestartsonyourplate #compassionnotcruelty #govegan #untileverycageisempty #closeallslaughterhouses #vegan #vegan4life

Ok Ok! I know I'm slightly obsessed with sharing #chicken photos this past 10 days or so, so this is the last for a week. I promise πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚ I asked my lovely #neighbour Tab if I could borrow one of her girls (city peeps ask to borrow a cup of sugar don't they πŸ˜‚) until the two new #rescuechickens arrive in a couple of weeks. Happy kinda froze like #wtfisthis but little Ruby just got right down to scratching ❀I spent a few hours out there with them as Happy was kinda agitated, walking the perimeter squawking loudly like she wanted out or calling for Suzi. Settled if I was in there with them tho.. tonight there was a small squabble over Happys nesting box that Ruby jumped into first. The body language of Happy was classic πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ anyway I'd say the #peckingorder is established and I stayed there until dark when Ruby clearly thought "Stuff it, im going in" and when I went to shut the door she was pressed up against Happy on the perch! I'd say by morning they'll be #bff πŸ˜‚β€πŸ‘ oh and I am officially declaring myself a #chickenlady πŸ˜‚ I'm in love with these beautiful birds!
