TCS Vigil April 10th

A kind, inquisitive young bovine waiting in a transport truck outside “St. Helen’s Meat Packers” killing facility (in the northwest area of Toronto) was seen with an injured eye that had clearly gone untreated, and must have been horribly uncomfortable for them, to say the least. In the industry, if an animal’s injury/illness is not a threat to humans once their flesh is in the food supply, it will often go untreated, as clearly happened with this beautiful person.

Says Anita Krajnc who bore witness to this bovine,”It was the saddest sight to see….a gentle and sweet cow with an injured eye. His cow friend nuzzled him affectionately and they both sniffed us.”

The lovely persons in this truck deserved far better than the fate they met. They deserved proper care, freedom, respect for their individuality, and love. 

Rest in peace sweet ones.

Please join our vigils or start a Save group in your own area! Dates of vigils are posted on our website and you may always come to us with questions.

The best thing you can do for animals like the ones in this video is to choose a vegan diet and speak out on their behalf in any way that suits you.

sincerely, a person who has been on prozac for 9 years

this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow

Take only as directed and SEE YOUR DOCTOR IF YOU FEEL WORSE.

Depression can be situational, it can be dysthymia rather than major depression, it can be mis diagnosed. Sometimes SSRI’s, or particular kinds of SSRI’s, are NOT what you need, but remember: these are the exceptions, not the rule.
For a lot of people they do a great deal of good.

Hey guys, so my eating disorder is really out of control again, and I need treatment, badly.  I got accepted at Timberline Knolls, but they need $2,000 for my copay, plus I need a ticket to a from (I live in California).  I spent 5 1/2 months at another treatment facility last year and am back at square one.  I’m desperate.  Please, if you could spread this or donate any amount, I would greatly appreciate it.

This is important.Mother’s Day is soon, and I want everyone to remember that human mothers are not the only mothers who deserve our acknowledgment, sympathy and gratitude.This is for the mother cows who are kept in confinement, repeatedly raped and impregnated to produce milk for greedy humans, only to watch helplessly as their newborn calves are dragged away to become veal, and meet death when they can no longer produce children or milk.This is for the mother pigs who are repeatedly raped and impregnated, forced to carry out their pregnancy and give birth in small gestation crates, unable to touch and interact with their own children from inside of a cage, and ultimately slaughtered.This is for the mother hens whose baby boys will be thrown into grinders or garbage bags because male chicks are of no value to the egg or poultry industries, and whose baby girls will grow up to suffer the same fate of confinement, feminine health issues like uterine prolapse and ovarian cancer, and untimely murder.This is for every female body that has ever been viewed as nothing more than an incubator, a reproductive machine. This is for the humans and nonhumans alike whose reproductive capacity is exploited rather than honored.One day the world will understand and change.One day we’ll finally respect all of our mothers: our human mothers, our nonhuman mothers, and our mother Earth.For now, I’ll keep fighting. I love you.

okay i know there’s a huge poc deficit in the media, but do you know what we’re really missing? asians.

asian main characters who aren’t just super smart side characters that do math or glare at people or stand around as eyecandy. like actual asians who have a sense of humor and varying body types and struggle with their parents and have to study super hard but also want to socialize and are proud or sometimes ashamed of their culture.

Dreamworks is doing something even Pixar hasn’t tried: A black female heroine

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a computer animated feature starring a black character.

If a black woman and a white woman both need emergency obstetric care, a Brazilian doctor will assist the white woman because of the stereotype that black women are better at handling pain and are used to giving birth.

TW AT THE LINK: Descriptions of extreme cruelty to animals.

The abuse of calves at a veal farm makes the front page of the Toronto Star.

Such farming of babies for veal is a direct result of the dairy industry. Since cows, like every mammal, need to be pregnant in order to lactate, the industry produces millions of calves. The females are raised to be dairy cows themselves, but since the males are of no use to the dairy industry, they are auctioned off at only a few days old, and are raised for veal.

Long story short, the veal industry is the dairy industry.

The only way to be sure that you are not contributing to such cruelty is to choose a vegan lifestyle!

How are the black panthers different from the KKK? Publicly shouting that we need to kill cracker babies is somehow okay because the group is black? Do you realize how fucking dumb you sound?

When’s the last time the Black Panthers burned crosses in someone’s yard?

When’s the last time the Black Panthers completely destroyed white towns for fear of their prosperity?

Have the panthers ever burned down any white schools to keep white people “in their place”?

Are these white folks serious?! Please, please…do yourselves a favor and earn some citations on this country’s history. The Black Panthers were NOT like the Klu Klux Klan. Their objective was not to go around and terrorize and murder white people. The KKK however, was definitely a reactionary terrorist/extremist group. The Klan emerged during “The Nadir” (the lowest point) in 1877, after poor and disenfranchised whites stomped out Reconstruction and Blacks ultimately lost their civil rights. White people losing their mobility in this country was the core reason for terrorizing African Americans, but after that bullshit, 15 reels, massive 3-hour long movie “The Birth of a Nation" was released in 1915, now all of a sudden, Black people became barraged with this false image of themselves as threatening, violent, and barbaric, particularly to white women in society (The New Negro Crime) which ultimately led to hundred of thousands of lynchings and murders of Blacks in America. The Klan had one objective, to exterminate Black people. They spurred false rhetoric, hate, and violence…that’s it!

The Black Panthers was a revolutionary socialist organization that started in the mid-1960’s in Oakland, CA aiming to PROTECT the Black community. They were against police brutality, imperialism, capitalism or anything they felt was detrimental to Black Americans. They wanted Black people to fend for themselves, that’s why they carried guns, and they used them cautiously. They helped the sick, the poor, single mothers and their children, they even implemented a free ambulance and breakfast program in the community, yet they’re like the KKK?! Their goals were simple: quality education, housing, employment, and civil rights.They were not a violent group and neither was Malcolm X, contrary to popular opinion, they just believed in their right to self defense.The bottom line is, The Black Panther Party was a mobilization by African Americans, and people of the African descent across the world to break down institutionalized oppression by any means necessary. And FYI, many whites supported like Marlon Brando, and others.
