Animals are Co-workers, not Merchandise

"Global industrial animal husbandry is a disgrace and a disaster for the earth. Humanity will not survive the collapse that is in the making. We must stop chicken and pig concentration camps; we must stop the central slaughterhouses; we must stop the destruction of the rain forest in order to grow animal feed; we must stop subsidies. The worldwide brutality against animals is unbelievable. Animals are treated as merchandise and money makers, not as living beings. We hurt ourselves with the inhuman behaviour. We lose our humanity when dealing with animals. The meat of these poor animals is contaminated and causes cancer. We are truly killing ourselves."
