No ‘Humane’ Dairy Products Here

When you advocate for welfare reforms that result in ‘humane’ dairy products you are actively participating in: RAPE — the violation of a cow’s reproductive organs. KIDNAP — the removal of her newborn calves so that the milk she […]

Live export of sentient beings is morally reprehensible. The conditions are often appalling and animals languish for days with no food or water, and often so many animals are crammed together that […]

Is Killing Animals Ever Morally Excusable?

There almost always comes a point when we have to decide that the dog, cat or horse that we own is better off dead than alive. When your dog is blind, deaf, having seizures and seems to be in constant pain; would it be wrong to keep him alive with constant medical assistance? Would it […]

Telling it Like it is

Abolitionists tend to say what we mean. We don’t pussy foot around the issues. We want to liberate animals. We believe that being vegan is the easy and obvious solution. We ask people to go vegan. Simple, straight forward, honest and effective. The Word is ‘Vegan’ Other animal organisations follow a far more complicated strategy […]

Goat’s Milk Kills Kids. Are You Kidding?

Are you considering reducing your dairy consumption by switching from cows to goat’s milk? On compassionate grounds, please take a moment to reconsider your choice. The goat’s milk industry results in the death of thousands of kids every year. While cows give birth to one calf a year, mother goats typically have twins, or even […]
