Bearing Witness

“When the suffering of another creature causes you to feel pain, do not submit to the initial desire to flee from the suffering one, but on the contrary, come closer, as close as you can to him who suffers, and try to help him.”ย โ€“ Leo Tolstoy


The Save Movement shared Jane Velez-Mitchell's live video.

Repost from @helen.ara - Why do we bear witness to these 'others'? These animals who look into our eyes with curiosity, friendship, fear, love, knowing?
These animals who tear our hearts apart with the knowledge that they are about to have their lives brutally taken. Not humanely. Against their will. Purely for human tastebuds and profit.
I tell you that I am ruined by this day. That their sweet innocent faces, their desire to live, their utter confusion at the lot drawn for them, leaves me devastated for them and for us. You tell me "Don't look then.", "Don't go there." "Why do you do it to yourself?"
I DO IT BECAUSE YOU EAT THEM.
You eat their bodies without a single thought for WHO they are. Their lives, desires, sufferances, are nothing to you. You see plastic-wrapped pieces which resemble to you a simple desire, a tradition, a thing which you call food.
They lived, and moved, in grace which we can never imagine or achieve, with those beautiful bodies you call 'meat'. They lived, in cages, sheds or fields, with purity, integrity, and a simple unquestioning need to just BE.
If no-one bears witness to them in the few moments they have left in their short lives, they will always be just an invisible number, a thing in a collective of somethings called 'meat'.
But they were SOMEONE. So many beautiful, individual someones, and they all deserve to be recognised as such.

Whether youโ€™re buying meat, eggs or dairy,

Leather, fur or down,

Fashion or food, thereโ€™s always a victim.

Go vegan.

Oh My God - this is literally hell on earth. How can this EVER EVER be allowed to happen???!! Everyone who eats meat is responsible for this horrendous atrocity - if youโ€™re reading this and are still eating the flesh of these poor sentient fellow creatures - shame on you, you have zero humanity in you!!!

How about make handmade things and do a donation to save the animals instead of keep posting and texting. Thatโ€™s my advice to you all and travel many countryโ€™s around America.

5am in Zurich
Whilst the rest of the world sleep soundly in their beds,
they are sent to their deaths.

But, we will be there for them.
To show them comfort and compassion in their final moments.

To share their story and bring darkness into the light.

Go vegan for them.

4 Years ago Gaiaisi - Gaia's Eye - Gaia is I attended his first Cow Save vigil in Toronto.
