Defending animals is defending the environment. Period. We can’t segment our struggle any longer.

HELP ENLIGHTEN YOUR FELLOWS. BE SURE TO PASS THIS ON. SURVIVAL DEPENDS ON IT.

Thank you for visiting our animal defence section. Before reading our main essay, please join us in a moment of compassion and reflection.

The wheels of business and human food compulsions are implacable and totally lacking in compassion. This is a downed cow, badly hurt, but still being dragged to slaughter. Click on this image to fully appreciate this horror repeated millions of times every day around the world. With plentiful non-animal meat substitutes that fool the palate, there is no longer reason for this senseless suffering. Meat consumption is a serious ecoanimal crime. The tyranny of the palate must be broken. Please consider changing your habits in this regard.

WHERE DOES OUR FOOD COME FROM?
In the “industrialised West” this is one of the best kept secrets. Guess why.

Patrice Greanville


Confronting organised human cruelty and exploitation of animals is always shocking. Exposés like this appear to many people as “strident”, tedius and tiresome appeals by people who “can’t tell the difference” between real urgent priorities (you name the human cause) and the plight of billions of animals, whose mindboggling suffering is automatically relegated to secondary or tertiary levels of importance. That kind of reasoning is grounded in false premises. As we have said elsewhere, being a supporter of animal liberation is today being a consistent ecologist, for no one can think herself or himself a serious environmentalist while munching on steak, eggs and stuffing himself with burgers. It just doesn’t add up. For the animal production industry in our modern world is an industry whose effects on our climate are as grave if not more deleterious than all the vehicular emissions in our planet, and other activities connected with the production of “greenhouse gases” starting with the petroleum industry, an industry that should have been retired decades ago, but which today continues to control entire nations. That is a failure of leadership of colossal and criminal proportions, a prime example of short-term thinking, and a gamble on the future of this planet that no one, under any reasoning, has the right to make.

  1. YOU ASSUME, WRONGLY, THAT THE GREANVILLE POST CENSORED YOU. But t was not us, but Disqus that held your comment ecause who knows you failed some of their many regulations. In any case, we saw it and approved it manually. As for what you say about capitalism, look around this site, what do you see if not the most consistent and outspoken attack on capitalism in all its aspects? Obviously capitalism has a great deal to do with CAFO systems, briefly said, it exacerbates the suffering and the wounds because it automatically puts profit as teh sole and most important criterion. But capitalism is not alone in this horrendous crime it is anteceded and energised by speciesism, an even older and equallly vicious belief system puttin humans above anthing else alive. Human supremacism is a moral cancer. </b Nothing much will change for animals while this rotten and brutal value system remains at the top of the social pyramid.

    By the way, you take me/us to task for not providing all the answers of tactics and strategy to defeat capitalism and specieisism in one moderately long paragraph. Don;t you think you are being a bit unfair? The Greanville Post is a small drop of correct consciousness in a vast, polluted ocean. Your mean-spirited critique would be more fitting if we were directed at CBS or the New York Times, far more capable of impacting the stupid cinsciousness of the masses.
