Ancient Greek Philosophers Warned Us About Eating Animals

Ancient Greek Philosophers Warned Us About Eating Animals
Socrates: Would this habit of eating animals not require that we slaughter animals that we knew as individuals, and in whose eyes we could gaze and see ourselves reflected, only a few hours before our meal?
....

Petition - Stop the Slaughter of America's Wild Horses

Sign: Stop the Slaughter of America’s Wild Horses

Petition - Stop the Slaughter of America's Wild Horses


Their lives hang in the balance...
..as the government decides the fate of America's wild horses.

The proposed House budget lifts a decades-old ban on the brutal slaughter of wild horses and burros. But there is still hope: thousands of you spoke up, and a Senate committee has just blocked the killing in their budget version. Now, the majestic animals' fate depends on final budget negotiations between House and Senate. For nearly 30 years, wild horses and burros have been protected by law. But now, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wants to change that, and control their population by killing the animals or sending them to cruel slaughterhouses in Mexico and Canada. Instead of killing America's horses, they should enact cruelty free population control efforts, like reducing births. We must not let them resort to bloodshed. We cannot let the slaughter go on!

Australia: save the koalas’ forest! - Rainforest Rescue

Australia: save the koalas’ forest! - Rainforest Rescue Australia’s koalas need help: the recent loosening of environmental laws has led to a surge in land clearing and habitat destruction. The state of Queensland does not even require permits in many cases. The rampant deforestation needs to stop NOW.



Koala on treeIn Queensland, a state in northeastern Australia, land clearing is at a ten-year high. Habitat loss is threatening a dozen plant and nearly one hundred animal species, including Australia’s iconic koala and the cassowary – a large, flightless bird. Koala #'s have plummeted from an est 100,000 to 40,000 in only five years. Once at home in lush forests, many now have to cope with scattered patches of woodland and suburban sprawl. To change trees in sparsely wooded areas, koalas are forced to come down to the ground – where they are vulnerable to attack by dogs or meet their end as roadkill.

NRA Wants To Ensure Grizzly Bear Hunting OK Near Yellowstone | Across Montana, MT Patch

alert! THESE PEOPLE MUST BE STOPPED!


NRA Wants To Ensure Grizzly Bear Hunting OK Near Yellowstone | Across Montana, MT Patch "They need to be hunted so that they fear the scent of humans, rather than following it as they do now," said Montana hunter Edwin Johnson.
NOTE: The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service revoked the threatened status for grizzly bears in July ... Conservation groups have sued to restore the federal protections, and the NRA and Safari Club have asked U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen to allow them to intervene in the case.


- just another horrifying perk to the trump administration & why they have been so busy piling up corrupted & grossly unqualified pics for the federal courts - these judges will have wide scale, long term negative consequences for generations to come, their decisions affecting both people & planet... economic equality, human rights, civil rights, women's rights, consumer protections, environmental justice issues, nonhuman rights (animal rights) & the (systematic elimination) of protections for wildlife including endangered species, not only here domestically but globally as proven with the recent reversal of Obama's exec order (elephant, lion trophy importation ban).
