An eye-opening DVD narrated by Sir Paul McCartney and signed by the fair hand of Pamela Anderson could be yours! Two autographed copies of “Glass Walls” are up for grabs.
Glamorous animal rights activist Pamela signed the DVDs during a recent trip to the UK, where she spoke to the illustrious Cambridge Union about her long history of working with PETA on behalf of animals. The crowd of brainboxes also got their own screening of “Glass Walls”, an exposé of the way animals raised for food are treated which … Read more.
Happy Birthday, Leonardo!
Leonardo da Vinci was not only a great artist but also a compassionate person who led a cruelty-free lifestyle. He was such an ardent defender of animals that he sometimes bought caged birds from poultry vendors and set them free. He frequently wrote about cruelty to animals in his Notebooks, writing of the meat and dairy industries, “Endless multitudes will have their little [babies] taken from them, ripped open and flayed and most cruelly cut in pieces” and “Of the beasts from whom cheese is made … the … Read more.
Painted head to toe in gold, three of PETA’s awesome activists showed off their giant medals in London today, urging people to “Go for the Gold: Go Vegan”. Their point? That throwing meat, eggs and dairy products out of your diet is the best thing that you can do for your health – whether you’re a top-rung Olympian or a couch potato.
A number of athletes – including nine-time Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis and Britian’s own Fiona Oakes, who ran 151 miles across the Sahara Desert in the world’s toughest … Read more.
Worried about the environment? If your answer is “Yes”, then we have a great way for you to help slow down climate change and save animals at the same time. Interested? Well, the single most important thing that you can do is ditch animal products from your diet and go vegan!
The livestock production industries are now recognised by the UN as one of the top contributors to today’s most serious environmental problems. An immense strain is placed on our water and land resources. To put … Read more.
Go vegan! On World Health Day, what better time to look at improving your health in one simple step? Especially as this year’s theme is “ageing and health”. On average, vegans are slimmer, trimmer and healthier than meat-eaters are. Their risk of getting some of today’s biggest killers such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer and strokes is much lower and their life expectancy is higher. Just see what a meat-free diet can do for you!
Add to that the fact that you will be saving the lives of around 100 … Read more.
Once a year, this week claims to celebrate “butchers’ creativity and passion”, but there is nothing to celebrate about slaughtering and hacking apart innocent, sentient animals. Every year, billions of animals who every bit as capable as feeling pain and suffering as you or I endure a terrifying and horrific experience in abattoirs that ends in their death. Undercover investigations repeatedly show that abuse and cruelty are inflicted on animals in abattoirs.
Farmed animals, the same as all animals, do not want to die, … Read more.
Many of us will have seen stories in the media about the Schmallenberg virus, the latest disease to hit animals already suffering in severely crowded and filthy conditions. The virus causes birth defects and miscarriages in sheep, goats and cattle, and it effects milk yields in cows and causes them to have diarrhoea. It is believed to have started in Germany, but cases have now been confirmed at 74 farms in the UK.
In addition to being forced to endure unnatural conditions, farmed animals … Read more.
An application to extend a broiler-chicken unit in Worcestershire that we objected to has been refused. This is great news for up to 168,000 chickens who would have been forced into a life of pain and suffering had the plans been approved.
While we celebrate this great victory, we won’t stop fighting until all chickens raised for their flesh – crammed together into huge, dark, filthy ammonia-laden sheds and forced to grow so large so quickly that they become crippled under their own weight – are free … Read more.
Last week, PETA’s loveable “pig” and “cow” joined the protesters at St Paul’s Cathedral. They were there to let people know that while a relatively small number of people fatten their wallets in the meat, egg and dairy industries, billions of animals suffer and die.
Because of corporate greed, animals are being treated like parts on an assembly line rather than the intelligent, sensitive individuals they are. Anyone opposed to injustice or morally bankrupt operations by big business should condemn industrialised animal agriculture, which causes animal suffering on a colossal scale.… Read more.
During a week that marks both Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday and World Animal Day, we thought it appropriate to take a moment to reflect on these words of wisdom from the “Great Soul”: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”. If Gandhi were alive today, how would the UK fare in his eyes?
One of the first pieces of animal rights legislation in the world, the Cruel Treatment of Cattle Act of 1822, was introduced in the UK, and we’ve … Read more.
