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

Today was special - started off with a peaceful protest, being a voice for the voiceless with @almondmilk__ before making friends with like-minded sweet souls and connecting over lunch.
REAL, passionate, world-changing conversations are the ones I dig. I also never thought I would connect with similar individuals so quickly, but it is so easy at these type of events... simply by starting a conversation!
It was also amazing to see the community's reaction to us standing with graphic / informative posters ... SO many people stopped to speak, took leaflets, asked questions, took photos, took videos etc. This is how we can make people aware of what's happening to animals, because at the moment the majority are not.
Although it finished with a lot of running to get on a train.. To then get on the wrong train ... To then catch a train back to Southern Cross and finally (2 hours later) get on the right train home (we're idiots @almondmilk__)... a wonderful day was still had and concluded with an interesting conversation with a kind man on our last train home.
My heart is heavy, my tummy is full and I have come home to @vegan_josh 💜💫🌙🖐🏼🤘🏼💌

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

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

PLEASE WATCH WITH SOUND.
This is a video I took of three cattle dogs stuffed into tiny crates and transported underneath the livestock truck.
This means they are carted around in those crates for hours at a time, unable to move around, eat, or drink. This is very common practice.
Whether you're vegan or not, this should upset you. This should anger you.
This cruel industry needs to end.
Go vegan and help end the suffering of billions of beautiful animals.

Bearing witness to the sweet souls who will lose their lives in the next 24 hours, all for greedy human consumption.
I spent a small chunk of my afternoon with @melbournecowsave and @melbournesheepsave bearing witness and saying goodbye to these beautiful creatures.
I also witnessed something I wasn't aware of that totally shook me.
It's so important to realise that these are sentient beings with emotions and thoughts just like you or I.
Please consider a vegan lifestyle to end the suffering of these creatures.

Today this innocent little guy had to endure the horrors of a slaughterhouse. Barely 6 months old, just a baby.

He would have been electrocuted and prodded, forced into the gas chamber where he heard he's brothers and sisters before him, screaming and thrashing their bodys in agony. Burning from the inside out by carbon dioxode inhalation. After that he's throat slashed from ear to ear, then submerged in tanks of scalding water, possibly still alive. After all that suffering, and a lifetime of pain and misery he still doesn't get peace, he's dead body then reduced to nothing but slabs of flesh, so some asshole can have "Bacon" on their toast.
Sorry buddy, your life meant something to me. I saw you, i cared. I won't forget you.
Make compassionate choices.

Myself and fifty other activists went to Diamond Valley Pork to bear witness to the thousands of pigs sent to slaughter daily. We saw six month old baby pigs, and sows covered in excrement, lying in filth, screaming and crying, desperate, dehydrated and grasping for water. In their last few minutes- I looked into their eyes, and saw their soul- and saw sadness and pain. They knew where they were going. I rubbed their wet noses, and stroked their ears and backs, to let them know- that a few humans cared about them. I am sorry, so sorry the world is how it is, for things I cannot control. But we will fight for you and I will remember you forever ❤️[2/3 photos by @lovebreephotography] #vegan #govegan #veganism #eatvegan #eatfigsnotpigs #activist #activism #vegansofig #veganactivist #bearingwitness #bearwitness #vegansofmelbourne #vegansofmelbourne #vegansofinstagram #animalrights #animalliberation #animalliberationfront #mps #melbournepigsave #savemovement #savemovementaustralia #pigsave #wearesorry #nikon #animalphotography #vigil #pigvigil #watchcowspiracy #cowspiracy #choosekindness #choosecompassion

You were so sweet, so trusting.
You came right up and put your nose against my hand as I told you how beautiful you are and how much I love you.
You gave my hand a kiss and a little nibble before I reached in and stroked your face.

You're no longer here and I'm so sorry that I couldn't save your life.
I hope you knew you were loved and your last moments are something I will never ever forget.

This girls death was cruel and unnecessary. I only ask that you please consider her and the millions of animals who die every day for needless human consumption.
She didn't need to die.
She will remain in my heart forever.

Bearing Witness with #melbournepigsave on Mothers Day. It is the first time after months of bearing witness that a truck of "spent" sows were in the truck. After having litter after littler of babies, who they never get to bond with they are discarded for slaughter. It's not a happy Mother's Day for all mothers.
We See you. We are Sorry 😪 #mothersday #veganfortheanimals #veganforlife #govegan #veganrevolutionary #pigs #dvp #diamondvalleypork #thesavemovement #meetyourmeat #sentientbeings #someonenotsomething #wearesorry #bearingwitness #thesavemovementaustralia #mothers #sows #bacon #vegansofig #vegansofinstagram

Mother's Day isn't happy for all mothers.
Today, with Melbourne Pig Save, we said goodbye to hundreds of sows (and baconer/porker pigs) headed for slaughter. These highly intelligent animals were visibly distressed and frothing at the mouth as they awaited their cruel fate.
This is the face of your bacon, pork and ham. Will you choose compassion or cruelty?

I truly hope that, even if only for five minutes, you understood that we were there for you.
That we love you unconditionally, and wholeheartedly.
We are so sorry. You deserved so much better. ❤️ 📷: @lovebreephotography

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

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.
