Brisbane says ‘No’ to Live Skinning Campaign – We are in the midst of setting up a PO BOX address. Once that is up, you can now have the option of mailing us the signatures you’ve collected in your area. We also need as many volunteers as possible who could spare an hour or so a week distributing door-to-door petitions. These petitions can also be mailed to our PO BOX address. To help, please email stopliveskinning@gmail.com.

Is Ignorance Bliss?

In this day and age – there is no such thing as ignorance being bliss. Not when there is the Internet and information is literally at our fingertips. You would be lying to yourself if you say that ignorance is bliss. True, it is MUCH easier not to know because that means we don’t have to ‘feel’ upset or angry – life is hard enough as it is right? Wrong. It is not true. It is all a matter of choice and how you want to live your life. I choose to know. I find empowerment and meaning BY doing something – no matter how small and minute the act is – to reduce suffering or to stand up for injustice. Most of the time, suffering is completely unnecessary. There ARE ALWAYS alternatives – we don’t have to eat battery eggs, we don’t have to drink diary milk for calcium, we don’t have to wear fur, …yes the list goes on. 

I will be adding a new section to this cause blog to include some of the work done by a few organisations I personally subscribe to. So do check it out and forward them on to your friends. And before you go, how about signing a petition now?

“Government to Permit Brutal Slaughter—-In mid-2007 Animals Australia was shocked to learn that several Victorian abattoirs were exploiting a legal loophole and slaughtering fully conscious sheep (without stunning) for small export contracts to the Middle East—despite this brutal method of slaughter being completely opposed by the Australian public...” Read more.

MSG from WSPA – Petition to save dogs

“Bali’s dogs are dying….In a kneejerk reaction to six suspected human rabies fatalities, the island’s authorities have killed over 1,000 dogs. This number could rise dramatically.  The animal suffering is acute. Strychnine is being used to poison some of the dogs, leaving them conscious and convulsing until they eventually suffocate. People are suffering too – the vast majority of victims are pets that are allowed to roam freely.”

Please sign the petition today! Forward this link to all your friends. Click here now.
