The Best We Have To Offer? | Inside Ireland’s “Humane” Farming
Most people are against factory farming—but what about grass-fed, free-range, humane agriculture? Nowhere is animal agriculture more idealized and visually stunning than the rolling green landscape of Ireland.  Undercover videos of animal abuse are exceedingly scarce and Ireland’s farmers pride themselves on higher standards and better regulations. So let’s take a close look at these higher standards—the very best we have to offer—and see if our assurances of “humane treatment” stand. Is it REALLY ‘not like that here?’

Presidential Debate Questions

Let's get the question "Will you reduce support for animal agriculture to counter climate change?" into the US presidential debate!

https://presidentialopenquestions.com/questions/7401/vote/
"Will you reduce support for animal agriculture to counter climate change? The U.S. is set to miss its 2025 environmental targets. Given that animal agriculture produces 51% of greenhouse-gas emissions, will you protect the environment by promoting a plant-based lifestyle?" ABC & CNN could ask Trump and Clinton this debate question for the Oct. 9 "town hall" debate! Vote here.

HI ALL. - NEED SOME HELP

My next video is going to be about veganism and how it's being ruined people doing it for the wrong reasons and those who are hijacking the success of it to bring in unrelated subjects (feminism, LGBT, which I agree with just unrelated). Also, those who are going about it like self-righteous morons, with totally uncalled for actions.

I have been vegan for over 10 years and finding people in the movement harder and harder to get along with, and seeing some take action which is prime material for those who want to make us look stupid.

Any thoughts, memes, experiences, even if they are totally negative towards me, are appreciated. Put in comments or PM's to me and it should be up in under a week.

Hmm... As you make this video, +Goatboy 42, can I ask where you stand on things like DxE?

For part, I don't care for people being "pretentious jerks" just for the sake of it, but I see things like DxE as good and valid demonstrations for the cause. I'd not want to see them held up as an example of doing things "wrong", you know?

About this community

A community of compassionate people, largely vegan and vegetarian, inviting and supporting all persons of conscience. —☆—★—☆—★—☆—★—☆—★—☆—★—☆—★— —GROUP "RULES"— There are no hard and fast rules for deletion of posts, since these sorts of rules are often limiting and easily over-stepped. However, in general we ask that posts be relatable to veganism and inform a discussion of vegan topics. For instance, a post about vegan cosmetics would probably be acceptable, but a post about the application of vegan cosmetics would probably be deleted. We have also deleted: ● Recipes for the sake of the recipes themselves. Rather, posts in the Culinary Conversation category must be "relatable to veganism and inform a discussion of vegan topics" absent of any recipe shared therein (ref: goo.gl/jVrGgG). ● Pictures of animals or food that serve no other purpose (ref. goo.gl/BTP29). ● Posts that are obviously spam and also do not contribute to vegan discussion (though we've been known to let the occasional bit of spam remain if we think it might be topical). ● Posts that are only advertisements from people who do not have an investment in our community or its goals. Please note that we love to see vegans promote themselves, their work and their ethics! However, sometimes that self-promotion comes across as a spammy plea for likes/hits/readership/customers, and we'd rather not see our members treated like potential marks. ● Posts that contain catch-words like 'sustainable' but do not contribute to a discussion of vegan topics. ● Shares of articles, videos, etc., which may be topical, but have been re-posted to the group too many times in too short a period (e.g. multiple repeats in the same day). ● Environmental activism links that don't specifically address vegan topics, unless the author of the post makes the vegan connection in an introduction (this one is tough for us, since environmental activism clearly affects animal welfare, but if we allow environmental activism without the vegan connection, the group suffers from mission creep). ● Humour posts that are not relatable to veganism. We also reserve the right to make judgement calls about individual posts, so the above list should not be taken as finite or delimiting. It's simply an example set of posts we've deleted. Finally, we ask that posts depicting animal violence be prefaced with a warning and linked, and that no pictures of animal violence be posted directly to the community (ref. goo.gl/ZscdpH). While we appreciate the necessity of discussing animal violence in a vegan context and wholeheartedly encourage the conversation, we believe it important that people be given the opportunity to prepare psychologically for these discussions and the images associated with them.

Please sign to stop chicken farm!

URGENT- say 'NO' to new chicken factory farm.

Sep 29, 2016 —

After the commitments made towards a higher welfare future from the UK’s biggest supermarkets, a huge backwards step has been proposed… Plans have been approved to build a giant chicken factory farm, in Staffordshire.

If these plans go ahead, nearly 500,000 chickens will be subjected to the suffering it will cause at any one time. The welfare of the animals has been given no regard whatsoever in the approval of these plans. Profit is clearly the priority.
The farm will house broiler chickens, who will be sent to slaughter at the horrifyingly young age of 5-7 weeks. The birds have been selectively bred to gain weight at an unnaturally fast rate and are fed huge amounts of antibiotics in order to keep them alive in these awful conditions, which is posing major risks to human health..
I have my own chickens, and I know what complex, intelligent, and beautiful animals they really are. They don't deserve this.
One of the greatest issues we are facing, is the lack of transparency in the industrial farming industry. If the truth of what happens to animals reared for meat or any other produce was made common knowledge, I strongly believe that the demand for such products would undoubtedly drop.
By allowing the factory farm to be built, we are condoning cruelty.
We must face the reality of factory farming, and make the changes that are so desperately needed.
I'm ashamed to be a part of a society that had integrated animal cruelty into everyday life. Farms of this type should be being phased out, not built on enormous scales!
Please join me in this movement towards compassion and away from cruelty.
Thank you all,
Lucy

My name is Lucy Gavaghan, I'm 15 years old, and I am trying to change the way chickens are farmed in the UK. There have been progresses in the industrial farming industry, but still, the fight continues… Recently, I found out about plans for a huge scale factory farm in South Staffordshire. If these...

"Smart Snack", eh?

With regard to advertisements, I'm fond of jesting that, "if you have to say it, it's probably not true"; this carnist packaging for the so-called "smart snack" company would seem illustrate my point.
