Pre Easter rally with Melbourne Cow Save and Melbourne Eggs Exposed. This time of the year can be just as cruelty free as any other time. www.veganeasy.org #melbournecowsave #vegan #crueltyfree

Did you know?
Cows can smell blood from up to 8kms away and can hear low and high frequency sounds much better than humans can.
Now, imagine being loaded onto a truck and sent to your death, imagine being able to sense that death long before you reach your final destination.
This is the final moments of a cows life. #melbournecowsave #thesavemovement #melbournevegan #bearingwitness #vegansinaustralia

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

I don't know why I get so anxious about going to rallies by myself. It is so refreshing to be surrounded by like minded people who are more than happy to accept you into their clan. Cows are pals and dairy is scary. ๐Ÿ’‹

*Meet the Victims of Animal Agriculture*

Meeting the victims of animal agriculture changes you. Seeing photos online or watching videos educates and helps break the disconnect.
But when you come face to face with the victims, when you look them in the eyes and see their absolute fear, their absolute desire to live, that is when the horror of the animal holocaust becomes real.
So meet the victims. ๐Ÿ’š *All these animals have now had their throats slit.๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ’” **These 4 beautiful loving animals were killed at a slaughterhouse in Melbourne in the last 4 months** Words by Toronto Cow Save.
But the eyes are specifically of Melbourne Cattle who have been on trucks to slaughter. #melbournecowsave #thesavemovement #animalactivism #animalrights #cattle #cows #vegansofinstagram #vegansinaustralia

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 ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿซ#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 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. ---------------------------------------------------

Two movements that are equally close to my heart, feminism and animal right. Which are essentially entwined, you can't have one without the other!

Have you ever known fear? Been in situations and circumstances where you're unsure and scared? It's a horrible feeling right?! Imagine being brought into this world only to be forced to give birth and have your child taken away from you time and time again so you can be exploited for you breast milk, hooked up to a machine and pumped till you're dry and then, when you're no longer useful, you are packed up on a dark and dirty truck with doezens of other scared and exhausted souls, to finally await your fate...death. Sounds pretty fucked up hey! If you wouldn't want this done to you, why enforce it on another? Please don't contribute to this cruelty. Drop dairy. Go vegan. #allcreaturesgreatandsmall #liveandletlive #friendsnotfood #veganforlife #vegansofig #vegansunite #dropdairy #saynotomeat #saynotodairy #saynotospeciesism #sadness #veganfortheanimals #melbournevegans #animallover #animalactivism #activist #activistlife #melbournecowsave #swanstreetbridge

Today we held a City Vigil. More photos and video will be posted later but we wanted to share this image with you of spent Dairy Cows on a truck that went through the city.
They were so incredibly thin. Bones sticking out everywhere, their udders were so worn out and they were standing in their own urine and faeces.
We don't know how long they had been on this truck but it must have been awhile.
Please don't consume dairy. This is what happens when they can no longer produce enough profitable milk for the farmers. They are sent to slaughterhouses and killed for hamburger meat.
Please choose compassion. Being vegan is so easy in this day and age.

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. ------------------------------------------------

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. --------------------------------------------------

Sometimes you just have to sit down and cuddle a cow. โค๏ธ
Shoutout to some of my fav ladies @micvtla & @jessecash for giving me an amazing day with their babies.
Cows are such incredible creatures. So sweet and bubbly. Once you meet them you can't eat them.

Melbourne Cow Save, Mothers Day Rally.
Dairy is an incredibly cruel industry, cows like all mammals don't produce milk unless they're pregnant, after 9 months she'll have her calf, within hours of the calves being born they are stolen from their mothers, the males are considered as waste because they will not produce milk, 700,000 bobby calfes are slaughtered anually in Australia. The females are put back into the same cycle of artifical insemination. This will happen every year untill her milk production slows, or she collapses from exhaustion then she will also be sent to slaughter.
This normally happens between 4-7yrs of age, cows naturally live for 25+yrs.
Dairy holds no nutritional value, it's full of blood and puss cells due to the cows gettings mastitis which is an infection that can be fatal. It gives you calcium, iron and zinc deficiencys.
Make the switch to plant based milks they're so much healthier for you and contain no cruelty or suffering. Make compassionate and ethical choices.

Positive front page article in my local paper #veganstuff #melbournecowsave #activists

Today (2/5/17) Melbourne Goat Save joined @melbournecowsave, @melbournesheepsave, @animalactivistsaustralia, and a team of activists at Pakenham sale yards to bear witness to the animals who would be sold for slaughter, and as commodities.
It is important to capture these moments of these animals lives to bring awareness to how they are treated and to stand strong with them.
Some of the things we witnessed were workers smoking while putting animals in their pens, workers kicking cows to move them around.
We witnessed animals terrified for lives, jumping out of pens to escape the men who desperately want their flesh.
Animals were covered in urine and faeces, and spray painted to show who they belonged to. Animals who cried in fear, who were so malnourished they couldn't stand any longer. This cruel injustice needs to be brought to light so that the unnecessary slaughter of living, feeling beings can end.
Every single life taken for meat, dairy, milk, is taken in vain because it is so needless.
We do not need the flesh or by products of animals, and we can choose to live happy and healthy lives while supporting these animals, giving them loving homes, treating them like you would your pet cat or dog.
Please consider a cruelty free, vegan lifestyle and help save the innocent, important lives of all animals great and small.
