Turning Tides

Vegan children’s comic, The English Family Anderson chapter 4, continues. For the story so far, click here 🙂

(NB Our comics were designed to be viewed on a laptop or desktop, but if you are viewing this on a phone and the pictures are too small to read the text, any Android smartphone has the ability to enlarge any part of the screen according to Technolong. They say this feature is located under Accessibility and is called Zoom Gestures. To turn on the zoom mode, go to the phone settings, select “Accessibility”, and then “Gestures for zoom”.

After turning it on, if you tap the screen three times and do not release your finger, the image will enlarge and you can move it by moving your finger across the screen. As soon as you release your finger, the magnification turns off.

The second option is to tap and release your finger three times, then the image will enlarge and remain enlarged up to three repeated taps. You can move the enlarged image with two fingers, and zoom in and out by pinching and spreading your fingers.)

[The fictional Turning Tides: A Strategy for Scotland’s Seafood Industry is based on the real strategic report of Seafood ScotlandChanging Tides – a strategy for Scotland’s seafood industry. I have included paraphrased sections from the genuine report and a couple of its photos/graphics (this is permitted under copyright law as it is done for criticism and the report is already available to the public). You can download the whole shocking thing here.]

Join us on Monday to find out what the Andersons plan to do about this! xx

It’s Wednesday, it’s 10 o’clock – and you know what that means!

Okay, maybe not, but I’ll tell you what it means – it means it’s time to get back to the Andersons!

Vegan children’s comic, The English Family Anderson chapter 4, continues here:

Remember, we left Mr Anderson and Casey on their way home after infiltrating the Viscount’s residence and appropriating a letter and a flash drive. Meanwhile Mrs Anderson and Brietta were on their way to the beach to look for some natural crystals in the hope of contacting their ghost friend, Caitriona.

Ooh 😮

Come back tomorrow to see what happens next!

Balloons Blow

Look what I just found!

Balloons Blow is dedicated to educating people about the danger and destruction that released balloons can cause.

Balloons Blow…Don’t Let Them Go! That’s the message we’re trying to get out. When we first started cleaning Florida’s beaches over 20 years ago with our parents, we would never find balloons. As the years went on we would find a few more here & there. Now, both in our 20’s, we continue our weekly beach cleanups & every year we find more & more balloons. Of course we collect much more washed up plastic than ever, which has caused us to eliminate wasteful plastic from our lives & try to encourage others to do so as well. But the disturbing thing about balloon pollution is that it is “celebrating by littering.”

We have collected thousands of balloons since we started keeping track in 2011. Although the Mylar balloons are more visible, we find many more latex balloons, perhaps because the balloon industry spends millions of dollars falsely marketing latex balloons as “biodegradable,” “environmentally friendly” and “safe to release.” However, it is these latex balloons that are especially deadly as their burst remnants actually mimic the food of many creatures.”

“It is very alarming, the amount of trash that gets washed ashore on our beaches, but it is particularly troubling that people release balloons on purpose to celebrate, to honor loved ones, or to just mindlessly watch it float away. This is the reason we had to create this website. It is dedicated to educating people about the danger and destruction that released balloons can cause.

Animals – marine & terrestrial, wild & domestic – commonly mistake them for food causing intestinal blockage, or get entangled in any attached strings, both leading to a slow and agonizing death.

Dangerous & costly power outages caused by Mylar balloons contacting electrical power lines effect hundreds of thousands of people each year. Helium is a nonrenewable resource critical in the science & medical fields.

There are countless websites & Facebook pages promoting balloon releases. Balloon sellers actively continue to deceive the public, pushing the sale and release of this wasteful, single-use product – resulting in the intentional release of millions of balloons. The industry falsely claims that balloons are harmless in the environment, but we show proof their claims are not true: Balloons Blow photo gallery.”

“There are laws prohibiting balloon releases in several states in the U.S. and many countries around the world, yet many unknowing celebrators, grieving groups, and others, are arranging balloon releases worldwide. Honoring a loved one or celebrating by releasing balloons is irresponsible – like littering, it should be discouraged (including sky lanterns).

We are hopeful people will begin to understand the hazards and get creative & Earth-friendly with their celebrations, like these environmentally friendly alternatives, and we will keep trying to get the word out that: Balloons Blow…Don’t Let Them Go!

If you know of anyone planning a balloon release, or if they’re intending to buy balloons at all, get over to Balloons Blow for advice on how to persuade the organisers to choose an environmentally-friendly alternative, (I will put a permanent link to them in our sidebar). Most people who do these things have absolutely no idea of the damage they’re causing, so be gentle, be kind, and hopefully when they know the truth they will do the right thing.

C.J. Polychroniou: Climate Crisis Must Be Treated Like Outbreak of a World War

Are the political powers finally going to do something?! Keep hope alive ❤

Vox Populi

Humanity and the environment are under massive assault by global warming caused by human activities.

The new Intergovernmental Panelon Climate Change (IPCC) report released August 9, 2021—the first of four that make up the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment report—reiterates in scientific language (it deals with the physical science basis of global warming) what we have already known for quite some time from scores of previous studies: humanity faces a climate emergency, global warming is human driven, major climate changes are irreversible, and time is running out to avoid a catastrophe of unimaginable proportions.

It is, nonetheless, an extremely valuable report because a damning indictment of humanity’s wholly destructive actions towards all life on Earth now carries the stamp of approval by the world’s most authoritative voice on climate science. And, ironically enough, the new IPCC’s 6th Assessment climate report is also approved by the very same entities—195 member governments—largely responsible…

The time is NOW!

A message from Crustacean Compassion:

We wanted to provide a quick update on the Sentience Bill ahead of today’s debate. This afternoon at 14:30, the House of Lords grand committee meet for the second time this month to continue reviewing suggested amendments to the bill.  

Two particularly important amendments being debated today are calling for invertebrates, like crabs and lobsters, to be included in the bill. If the Lords agree that these amendments should be made, then we’re a big step closer to getting these animals protected! 

At the time of critical debates such as this, it is essential to show how much support there is for this issue! Make sure to show your support today by completing our two actions. They only take a few minutes and make a massive difference: 

(1) Add your photo or video to our selfie wall #SelfiesForSentience  (you don’t have to live in the UK to do this!)

(2) Write to your MP to keep this issue top of the agenda    

Don’t forget to share on social media too so others can take part!  

The debate can be watched on Parliament TV here. You can read the two amendments tabled to include decapod crustaceans via the links below: 

1. Amendment made by Baroness Hayman of Ullock 

2. Amendment made by Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb  

Be a voice (and a face!) for these animals…

Join our Selfie Wall now and ask your MP to speak out for decapod crustaceans. Please don’t let these animals be ‘forgotten’ in the Sentience Bill! 

Thank you so much.

ACT NOW!

URGENT! PLEASE HELP!

Excruciatingly Cruel slaughter methods:

These things happen legally because crustaceans and molluscs are not included in the Animal Welfare Act.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell the UK government to end these cruel practices and make it mandatory to treat these wild animals humanely – WITHOUT PAIN AND SUFFERING! – it will only take you a couple of minutes and it has to be NOW because they deciding right now whether to include crustaceans in the Sentience Bill and the Animal Welfare Act.

The Corona Crisis: Reflections from Tamera

I haven’t posted in a few weeks – still working on The English Family Anderson Chapter 4 which is not ready yet – but right now I want to share something I just read at the Tamera Peace Research and Education Centre. It was written in January this year and is filled with truth and rationality – something very hard to find in the current climate. I thought it would interest you too.

You can read the whole article here. [NB I’ve tried to change the colour of the paragraphs from the Tamera article but I’m not proficient in this new block editing thing so, rather than throw my laptop out the window, I will tell you that the paragraphs above the top image and below the bottom one are from me. The bits between the photos is all Tamera 😉 ]

For a year, Covid-19 has held the world in suspense. The infection with SARS-CoV-2 is evidently mild in most cases, but unfortunately not in all. … At the same time, we observe millions of cases of human suffering which aren’t caused by the virus, but precisely by the measures taken to contain it: The elderly, the vulnerable and the sick, who in many places become lonely, desperate and often enough have to die alone; the traumatization of an entire generation of children and young people, who are being inculcated with the fear of other people and the guilt of being themselves a danger to others and loved ones; an increase in psychological distress, mental illness and domestic violence, a rising suicide rate; and the medical undersupply of millions of people, because hospitals, medical practices and examination institutes cannot work as they used to, due to imposed Corona measures.

In addition, there are the unmistakable socio-economic consequences of the prevailing Corona policies. We are seeing an economic crisis and redistribution of wealth that has been unparalleled since the 1920s: countless small and medium-sized businesses have been driven into insolvency, while the super-rich reap unprecedented profits. While hundreds of millions of people become unemployed, while hunger and homelessness skyrocket around the world, large corporations are recording all-time high profits, especially in the digital and pharmaceutical sectors. Stock markets have flourished. Between April and July 2020 alone, in just four months, the wealth of billionaires grew by 27.5%, or US $10.2 trillion.

The economic and humanitarian consequences of the lockdowns have been particularly devastating in much of the Global South. In many countries, almost the entire informal sector came to a standstill virtually overnight, pushing hundreds of millions into extreme poverty, hunger and misery. The UN currently estimates that the number of people starving worldwide will increase by 83 million to 132 million as a result of the Corona measures alone. Last summer, the aid agency Oxfam predicted that by the end of 2020, up to 12,000 additional people would starve to death every day as a result of the measures alone.

Today, we know that the early hypothetical model calculations for Corona deaths, which moved governments in many countries to impose lockdowns and other drastic measures, were inflated. At the same time, many experts have voiced doubts over determining infection numbers by PCR tests alone, over the effectiveness of lockdowns, social distancing and mask-wearing and over the hastily approved new vaccines and their associated risks. Yet, to date, very few diverse expert committees have been able to review the effectiveness and proportionality of the measures taken.

The Corona virus has often been portrayed by the media and politicians as an unprecedented new phenomenon. Nevertheless, as with any disease, the same principle applies: Treatment measures must not cause more harm than the disease itself.

Fear has been the principle that governments and media in many countries have followed in responding to the Corona crisis from the beginning. Instead of providing prudent information, many governments fomented fear of disease and death – sometimes deliberately, as can be seen, for example, in an internal strategy paper of the German government, to “achieve the desired shock effect” and make people comply with the measures. Fear, however, is rarely a good advisor when it comes to managing crises. Unconscious fear causes polarization, disrupts communication and makes it hard to assess events in a rational manner. Fear often leads to protective measures that only intensify danger or even conjure it up. 

The Covid-19 measures are resulting in deep societal divisions, and meaningful communication between the different camps hardly seems possible. On the one hand, governments are trying to curb the spread of the virus with extensive information campaigns and restrictions, while on the other hand, thousands of renowned doctors, scientists and experts critical of the way Covid-19 is being managed are ignored by politicians, defamed by mass media and censored on social media.

A new vaccine that was approved within just a few months is proposed for billions of people, even though it normally takes 5–10 years to complete the necessary studies and testing phases to assess the extent of harmful side effects of new vaccines. With this, the pharmacologist Prof. Stefan Hockertz warns of “human experimentation.” Already now, there are more and more reports of side effects, some of them severe, from various countries. However, it is still unclear as to what extent the vaccine may actually contain infections. On December 29, WHO lead scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan admitted, “I don’t believe we have the evidence on any of the vaccines to be confident that it’s going to prevent people from actually getting the infection and therefore being able to pass it on. So I think we need to assume that people who have been vaccinated also need to take the same precautions.”

The Covid-19 measures raise deep ethical and social questions. In his essay, “The Coronation,” the author and visionary Charles Eisenstein writes, “What world shall we live in? How much of life do we want to sacrifice at the altar of security? If it keeps us safer, do we want to live in a world where human beings never congregate? … Are we willing to accept the medicalization of life in general, handing over final sovereignty over our bodies to medical authorities (as selected by political ones)? How much are we willing to live in fear?”

If you don’t trust pharmaceutical companies, or politicians, why would you believe anything they tell you about this or anything else? I haven’t heard anyone in the mainstream talk about ending animal farming to prevent future crises; or teaching people that plant-based nutrition will strengthen their immune system while an animal-based diet will compromise it. I wonder if that’s because pharmaceutical companies make nearly all their money from the medications they sell for the chronic diseases caused by consumption of animal products; the medications they sell (eg vaccinations) to tackle the avoidable infectious zoonotic diseases* like covid which emerge from the way humans treat animals; and the medications they produce for the farmed animals themselves**.

* Eating habits of humans have not only caused preventable epidemics but they have caused an array of ailments in every one of our body systems [Muyembe-Tamfum et al., 2012]

The World Health Organisation, the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations, and the World Organisation for Animal Health got together to uncover the key underlying causes of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases . They came up with four main risk factors. These include the exotic pet trade, and bush meat, but number one on their list was the increasing demand for animal protein the world over. They blame the emergence of COVID-19, H5N1, SARS, Nipah virus, all these new deadly viruses, on over-consumption of animal products. [From a youtube video by Dr Michael Greger]

Make Raystede Vegan

I said I would do this every year until Raystede went vegan, but last year I didn’t because it was lockdown, Raystede was closed to the public, and I thought I’d give them some breathing space in the hope that they’d come to their senses. Sadly they haven’t so we begin again.

I promised to publish photos of dairy babies every year for the duration of this campaign because these gentle souls are usually forgotten in the consumption of milk, butter, cheese and ice cream. They deserve to be remembered.

These adorable tots have only been in this field for a few days now but they might remain here for a few months. The ones from last year did. And the ones before that. And the ones before that. Their brief motherless lives will end after that, unless they’re female and required by the farmer to provide milk like their…

Luke Walker for Hillside Animal Sanctuary!

From this day forward, all profits from the sale of the Luke Walker: animal stick up for-er books in our Lulu shop will go to Hillside Animal Sanctuary in Frettenham near Norwich.

Hillside is now home to over 4000 rescued animals but their work doesn’t end there. They also conduct investigations into the way animals are treated on farms and have repeatedly exposed and published the horrors found there. They say they have always known that one of the main reasons animals are left to suffer in factory farms is because people have little or no idea about the immense cruelty involved in their ‘food’ production.

We have supported Hillside’s amazing work for many years now so we’re thrilled to be able to donate 100% of the royalties from our Luke Walker series of books 😀 For every Luke Walker book sold in our Lulu shop, Hillside will receive £1, so if someone you know has a birthday coming up, why not get them a present full of funny stories they’ll love that will also help the animals they love? ❤
