"This is not a call to take illegal direct action, but rather a call to challenge the boundaries of your own comfort in an effort to free others, because it matters “to that one” and because it’s there that we begin to unwrap the binds that confine each of us."

"I like animals, all animals. I wouldn’t hurt a cat or a dog - or a chicken or a cow. And I wouldn’t ask someone else to hurt them for me. That’s why I’m a vegetarian."

Save Sunshine, the happiest goat ever
Sunshine needs your help. A program operated jointly by the Canadian Government (CFIA)* and the animal/dairy/meat industry contacted Sherry & Yan (Sunshine’s people) in February, wanting to slaughter him as part of an “eradication program.” Sunshine is a healthy, happy, member of their family, and lives on a vegan farm / animal sanctuary in Ontario.
Sunshine (he pronounes his name “Shmunshmine”) is a beautiful happy boy who likes to snuggle and radiates love for everybody. He has already been saved twice: first from being killed or eaten as an unwanted newborn, then because he came to his forever home as a malnourished & neglected baby — now he needs kind humans to save his life again.
The allegation is that since he is of the same breed, he may have genealogy links to a dairy farm where a rare and non threatening goat & sheep degenerative disease was reported in one goat (third case in Canada’s recorded history). All 482 goats on that dairy farm were slaughtered in January 2014 for “testing” and now they are targeting healthy friends on a vegan farm / animal sanctuary (because of a perceived threat to the industry’s ambitions).
Sunshine & the rest of the Piebird goat friends need your help and they will love you forever for your kindness.

Did you know that pigs are smarter than dogs? In fact, pigs even outperform human children on cognitive tests!
Some other pig facts:
- Pigs see and dream in colour.
- Pigs enjoy listening to music and mother pigs will sing to their young while nursing
- Pigs make nests to sleep in and will make them for their friends (even if those friends happen to be human)!
- Pigs can play video games.
- Pigs are naturally slender. They only become fat when humans overfeed them.
- Pigs are sociable. They like to cuddle and snuggle up, nose to nose, with their friends as they sleep
- In the wild, and on sanctuaries, pigs live in matriarchal societies, as elephants do.
- Pigs are hygienic. When given the chance, they are more particular about their sanitary behavior than most dogs. They will not, unless locked inside a factory-farm cage, defecate anywhere near their living space.
- Pigs roll in mud to cool down and ward off parasites and sunburn, just as elephants do.
- Source and source.
Pigs are intelligent, sentient, amazing beings who deserve so much better than the horrific way they are treated on factory farms, during transport, and in slaughterhouses.
Please show your compassion for these wonderful persons and go vegan!

Few of us have seen factory farms, the insides of animal experimentation labs, or the process of slaughter. This kind of obfuscation is useful - it keeps us in the dark, distanced from the real conditions that are necessary to produce what we consume. Yet, if we are able to get behind this intentional confusion and demystify commodity relations, what excuses are left for us when we continue to do the same old thing over and over again? Animal exploitation is all around us, and though few of us are actually willing to do violence to animals directly, a great many of us are willing to have that violence done for us. Asking someone else to do your dirty work for you doesn’t mean that it isn’t dirty. And when it comes down to it, if we are serious about justice, serious about equality, and serious about our commitment to looking after the least among us, we owe something to the animals who suffer voicelessly among us.
