We also check-in with Jordan Reichert (The Critical Cat), one of the founders of the newly-formed Vancouver Island Vegan Association РVIVA.
 

VIVA is focused on building a welcoming, inclusive, safe, and accepting community of people interested in veganism. No matter what your ethnicity, gender, sex, sexual orientation, colour, economic status, or religious beliefs you are welcome to join us as we promote a non-speciest approach to living a compassionate lifestyle. If we want to build with these values, then we must practice them in how we communicate and behave with those we work, eat, play, and live with.

One Response to Taking Action & Building Community. Bill C-51, Zoo Protest, and Vancouver Island Vegan Association

    I like the issue of animal liberation. However, I am more interested on emergency issue coming up first, before any other issues. When we even did not pay attention to emergency issue, then how we can take care of the rests?

    What do I mean emergency issues. These are the issue about farm animals. The suffering and horror and holocausts created by men to these animals due to the increasing consumptions of meat, and dairy products to feed unlimited desire of human’s tastes. These issues are emergency because every single minutes, hours and day in day out, farm animals suffering unbearable tortures from LIFE EXPORTS, TO BEING SLAUGTERD PAINFULLY FROM ALL KINDS OF SORTS METHODS, FROM BARE HANDS WITH BRUTAL TORTURES TO STUNING TECHNIQUES AND GAS CHAMBERS. THIS MADNESS OF HORROR FARMS ANIMAL FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTIONS MUST BE STOPPED. TIMES NOW FOR POLITICIANS PAY ATTENTIONS TO SOCIAL JUSTICES, THE VEGAN REVOLUTION AFTER SLAVERY REVOLUTION.

    It is no doubt that farm animals and pets such as dogs and cats, those gentle one herbivore cannot support themselves, they need and deserve to have absolute 100% human protections. Unfortunately, we are not generous enough even though we could have afforded to protect them under the care of FARM SANCTUARY INSTEAD OF FACTORY FARMS. IF OUR ZOO OPERATION ON THE SCALE OF “GOOD” NOT “BAD” THEN WIFE LIFE ANIMALS SHOULD BE ABLE TO ENJOY THE “GOOD PROTECTION” FROM HUMAN SO THAT THESE ANIMALS DO NOT HAVE TO STRUGGLE FOR THEIR SURVIVALS TO FIGHT FOR FOOD IN THEIR FORESTS. AS LONG AS HUMAN USE AND SHARE THE BENEFIT FROM HUMAN IN A DECENT WAYS SUCH AS GETTING THE EGGS THAT ARE NOT FERTILIZED, NOT KILLING MALE CHICKS, NOT SLAUGHTER HENS WHEN THEY ARE NO LONGER TO GIVE EGGS, IT IS A FAIR EXCHANGE , THEN I COULD NOT SEE THINGS GO WRONG WITH EATING EGGS AS WELL AS ZOO ENTERTAINMENTS. UNFORTUNATELY, HUMAN DEMAND IS SO GREEDY TO THE POINT THAT “GOOD PROTECTION” TURN INTO “BAD EXPLOITATION”.

    All what I say is to take care the emergency issue of farm factory, make sue all of them are going to be shut down immediately, then I will pay attention to the next issue of wild life liberation.
