#tbt to We Animals by Jo-Anne McArthur. This book draws from thousands of photos that Jo-Anne took over 15 years of animals in the human environment and how we often treat animals and how they should be seen. @weanimals

📸 “I’m always trying to make people care and sometimes is really easy, it depends on the person, and sometimes is impossible and you wonder why.” This is how photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur started the trailer of #theghostsinourmachine documentary 6 years ago. I remember watching the trailer and falling in love with her voice and her work (why do I always fall for the photographer? 🤔 I’ll remember to work that on therapy). Anyway, she keeps saying: “people need to think about this, these are sentient beings, not objects for our use”. The trailer ends with her patting Maggie’s head (a rescued Beagle) and saying to her: “it’s a good life now hey, Maggie?” 🐶 Her pictures. How she shreds a light to what is being kept from us. Her strength and kindness. You should run to your nearest bookstore and look at the stories this books portraits. Stories no one dare to tell before 🖤🌻 (Editado en español por @plazayvaldes para que el 100% de los beneficios vayan a @igualdadanimal 😉)

Colour clash! 💚❤️ When two collide... I use this Instagram page to mainly post about all the plant based foods I eat. I try to show a broad spectrum. And I also do this because I want this page to spread awareness about animal rights. I follow a lot of activists who bear witness at farms and slaughter houses, mainly Australia but also in the UK and I see a lot of images. These are the ones most people want to forget about. Turning a blind eye to where our food actually comes from. The want to forget the fact that it was once a living, breathing, feeling being like you or me. Just like a beloved pet you would even call a family member in fact. Even in the UK the importance of animal welfare is considered much higher than the rest of the world but what the industry still choose to leave out is the final end of these poor victims. There is no such place as a happy slaughter house. Pigs have to gassed to death for example. There is no bolt to the head. These sentient beings that we know are in fact extremely intelligent, more so than the average dog, have to suffocate in gas that burns their lungs til the end. They scream and writhe fighting for escape but they can't. I am spurred on every day to do something to help. I have to do something about it and never to get complacent because those poor victims and most of them are still considered babies, are needing all of us to do something to stop this barbaric unnecessary slaughter. Everyone has a choice to stop this, all it takes is lack of consumer demand. It rips into my heart seeing their suffering but I will never turn my back on them because they need all of us to do something. This is an evil of our time. Please for them, go vegan. Please don't turn your back. Please turn on that innate goodness for all animals I know everyone has hiding behind this depraved social programming. There are the largest range of vegan options now for food of any variety more than ever. Many may never bother reading this til the end but if you do please take time to think about this.

There are many places to start from ✌️

#RP @theghostsinourmachine Join us this Tuesday at 7pm at Au Lac in Downtown LA to screen this visually striking, powerful film. The Ghosts in Our Machine is a Canadian documentary film by Liz Marshall. The film follows the photojournalist and animal rights activist Jo-Anne McArthur as she photographs animals on fur farms and at Farm Sanctuary, among other places, and seeks to publish her work. The film as a whole is a plea for animal rights. Powerful for seasoned activists and new activists alike. As activists, it is so important that we learn about and analyze the different tactics used to advance animal liberation and seek out the tools that work best for each of us in our unique approaches toward the same ultimate goal. This film is a powerful aid in helping us do this. Come out, bring friends, spread the word! See you soon ✊ #liberationlosangeles #vegansofla #vegan #veganism #animalliberation #vegansofinstagram #photography #documentary #theghostsinourmachine #nooneisfreewhenothersareoppressed #fortheghosts

🥛 THE DAIRY INDUSTRY 🍼
.
Scared, alone, frightened, in pain, barely able to walk.... A slave to the system and now that HER milk (that has never fed HER baby) has dried up and her body is too tired to produce more babies, she’s sent to slaughter. Her mere miserable existence on this earth nothing more than to satisfy your tastebuds.
. .
Modern day slavery at its finest. When you actually stop and think that your drinking the secretions produced from a cow’s nipple it’s a little bit weird right!? Considering a cup full of breast milk would no doubt freak you all out! 🤦🏼‍♀️

Bucket list item checked off! ✔️ 👍🏾🕺🏾💞🙌🏾
I am so happy to have met photographer, educator, activist, and all-around inspiring woman Jo-Anne McArthur!!! We have her most recent book, Captive, and while it is a tragic look at what humans can do to animals, it is only a small fraction of what Jo-Anne has witnessed while documenting the human / animal connection.
PLEASE!!! Visit her website and learn about the amazing work she has done, & is doing every day!! @weanimals and weanimals.org — support this storytelling & relentless focus on what animals endure. -

Last night there was a screening of @theghostsinourmachine at @stretchvancouver. What a turnout! It was hosted by @animaljustice_, @erinireland, and @todieforff. Both Jo and Liz were there as well! If you haven’t seen this film, you must! Right now! .

Joanne will be at another event Saturday, March 17th, hosted by @furbearers and @bcspca; ‘ @weanimals: Fifteen Years Of Photojournalism and Advocacy’ 💕 Get your tickets for this event on #furbears fb page or website! #animalrights #theghostsinourmachine #weanimals #lizmarshall #joannemcarthur #photojournalism #advocacy #activism

At last nights Q&A both Jo and I reflected on how much time has passed since the making of Ghosts (2011-2012). There is real palpable momentum and change, yet the themes and issue of mass industrialization of animals remains global and relevant. The film is timeless. #onwards #fortheghosts #weanimals #theghostsinourmachine #factoryfarming #animals

Last night I attended a Mindful Movie night that featured The Ghosts in Our Machine by #Canadian director @lizmarsfilm. An incredibly beautiful movie featuring photographer @joanne.mcarthur. I highly recommend this to all the animal lovers out there.
The evening was hosted by some pretty amazing peeps themselves @erinireland, @easyanimalfree and @zachtruck. Thank you for being the change! 🙏💖 #theghostsinourmachine #vegan #plantbased #animalovers #animalrights #bethechange #weanimals #yvr #vancouver #thekindestthing

Another moving documentary screening with @erinireland @easyanimalfree #theghostsinourmachine Thank you @juicetruck @stretchvancouver for supporting these events. It’s energizing to be around people who share your values. Thank you to @lizmarsfilm @joanne.mcarthur for not only bringing this story to life with such passion, but for telling a story that is as relevant today as when it launched. Thank you both for taking the time out of your schedule to share your story. Look forward to your upcoming projects. #vegan

Thank you, @weanimals, for the work that you do. Tonight's screening of the #documentary 'The Ghosts in Our Machine' moved me to tears. Thank you for being a voice for the voiceless ❤️ Being in a room full of compassionate people who want a better world for our fellow animals made me feel so hopeful and less alone in my personal struggles with #veganism ✌️

There are a lot of #Misconceptions out there about #Roosters, one of the most common being that they cannot peacefully coexist. At #MapleFarm, guests are often surprised to see that we have not just one #Rooster, but five!! Strutter, Nicholas, and our three handsome #Bantams are proof that, given enough space, roosters cannot only #Coexist, but form wonderful, loving relationships w one another 💚 Unfortunately, roosters are considered a waste product within the industry that produces them, and every year we send 200 million male #Chicks to a premature death simply because they will not turn a profit. These babies are sorted from their female siblings on conveyor belts and are either ground alive to make commercial pet food or thrown in the trash 😔 #Chickens of both genders are easily the most exploited animals on the planet, and every day that we continue creating a demand for their flesh and secretions is a day that we must create more babies whose lives will ultimately be taken from them. Luckily for the boys at #MFS, they can now live the rest of their lives being someone, not something - and showing the world how wonderful their kind can be when given the chance 😘🐓 #CrueltyFreeLife #BeAccountable #BeAware #KnowYourImpact #BeTheDifference #ChangeTheWorld 🌎 #TheirWorldToo #SomeoneNotSomething #RespectExistence #ExpectResistance #Unethical #Vegan #EthicalVegan #OpenYourEyes #HypocrisyKills #ApathyKills #FriendsNotFood #UseYourAdvantage #UseYourVoice #NotOursToTake #NotOursToUse #BeKind 💚 #KindnessIsMagic #AnimalsArePeople #AbolishIgnorance #TheGhostsInOurMachine #AnimalRights #Vegan #EveryLifeMatters #EndSpeciesism🌱 #VegLife #MapleFarmSanctuary @maplefarmsanctuary

HE is why I'm vegan. I look at a face like that and I want to know this guy. He's an individual. When Marla posted pictures of him and others at the livestock auction, I cried for almost a half hour straight. Cried because I wish they could all be saved. Cried because there, in that hell on earth, every animal's pupils were completely dilated- even through photographs, I could feel their fear. It tore holes in my spirit. This is a post to all my non-vegan followers... please make yourself aware. I know many of you are kind caring people and that's why you don't like it when I remind you that vegan is the lifestyle to choose if you truly care for animals. I also implore you all to watch the compelling film "The Ghosts in our Machine". It is one of the most difficult and heart-wrenching things I've ever witnessed and that's exactly why it's important to see it. When we put convenience and convention before compassion and truth, we're doing something wrong. @therileyfarmrescue #vegantattooer #vegan #veganforlife #veganfortheanimals #respectexistenceorexpectresistance #veganrebel #veganpunk #neverbesilent #someonenotsomething #liveandletlive #theghostsinourmachine
