Food.... the stuff that's killing us
Food.... the stuff that's killing us
Food and entertainment go hand in hand...
It has been so from the beginning. Food gives good cause for celebration and so, tradition has cultivated food to be central to the way of life in every place on Earth.
Planet Earth provides food in abundance - its ecosystem is a continuous generator of food, its generous oversupply not wasted, what falls off the trees and vegetation is neatly churned back into the top layer of the soil by the labor of microbiologic organism, not only keeping the soil fertile, but enriching its properties for more growth to serve the Planet's co-habitants well. Animal species add to soil fertilization, birds drop seeds over vast areas, new growth just keeps on popping up from the ground everywhere.
We've come a long way since the days of man's prime hunter gatherers. Industrious Man has turned things around - entertainment has become the central focus, food has become the byproduct. Food is now a factory made commodity, the last item on a long list of more important necessities such as..... politics, games, TV, playschool gadgets for the 1 to 75 year olds, and we can devour our nutrition labeled chemicals while being entertained. But as always, when it comes to indulgence, some get the best of both worlds, while others live and die on the spoils.
When watching videos.....
There is nothing new under the sun when it comes to the competitive marketplace where anything goes. You're living in a 21st century cyber world. At no time in history was it easier for any Tom, Dick and Harry to load their obnoxious compulsive mania straight into the hands of anyone anywhere in the world at any time. Watching the videos on this page despite having been selected on merit of their assumed reliable sources, requires viewer discretion. The principle in posting these videos and those throughout this web site is to raise awareness of the barbaric realities that dictate our daily life so we may find a way to leave the ill fated path and switch to the means that serves all of humanity and this World on the whole.

Only weeks ago, I walked into the Federal Court alongside our legal team to make our case against the cruel live export trade. An expedited trial was granted, and now, just days before it was to begin, something astonishing has happened...
The Federal Department of Agriculture has confessed to a shocking blunder.
They've admitted they acted with legal 'error' in allowing 58,000 Australian sheep to be exported to the Middle East in June, on board an Emanuel Exports ship.
Incredibly, the Department official who signed off on the export permit did not hold appropriate power of delegation to do so. This means thousands of animals were shipped from our shores unlawfully.
Winning our case through the sheer ineptness of the Department of Agriculture was not our plan! However, it does allow us to highlight, once again, that the Department is unfit to act as the regulator of this cruel trade.
That they can quite literally 'forget' to tick a box only strengthens what we've always known: animals should not be left in the hands of a Department that simultaneously promotes and 'regulates' the live export trade.
This 'win' doesn't signal the end of our legal action against this cruellest of trades — and both the Department and exporters know it.
Just last week our legal team was working day and night preparing to injunct a live sheep shipment from leaving Australia. Our willingness to take this unprecedented legal action was a key reason for an Eleventh Hour intervention by the Department, that saw the exporter's licence suspended.
It means that this company — that has built its export empire on the suffering of animals — is not allowed to ship even one more animal.
This suspension of another major export company, alongside our court 'win', will have rocked both the regulator and the industry to their core.
The fight to outlaw this cruel trade isn't over yet, however the battle lines are shifting.
Despite a worldwide outcry against this terrible trade, the Kuwaiti importer will still be desperately scrambling for another way to ship these sheep over the coming weeks. And we'll to continue to do whatever it takes to stop them.
Each day, our efforts on behalf of these animals are intensifying, and Robert, your ongoing support is critical.
There are just weeks left until two historic Bills come before Parliament that could spell the end of this trade. Until then, it's crucial we continue to give these animals the best possible representation — on prime time TV and in Parliament, on the pages of national newspapers and in the Federal Court of Australia.
What happens over the coming weeks will help create history.
Right now, 45,000 sheep are standing in a feedlot on the outskirts of Fremantle. Whether or not they'll suffer a voyage into the blistering Middle Eastern summer depends, in large part, on us. These sheep may be 'owned' by a heartless live export company — but thousands of caring people like you, Robert, are fighting to change their fate.
While they may be unaware of the almighty battle being waged on their behalf — we will continue to do everything in our power to prevent even one more of these gentle souls from setting foot on board a live export ship.
Thank you, as always, for being a part of this historic journey for the animals with us.
