Bearing witness at Foster Farms in Kelso, WA. About 150,00 chickens get slaughtered everyday. The nightmarish journey to the slaughterhouse can take hours even days with no food or water. They are so crammed together they cannot move and have to urinate on one another. They arrive with broken bones, wings, legs, and the truth is some of them die. The ones who survive their legs are force into shackles so they can hang upside-down. •
Before they get their throats slit they have to be dragged through an electrified water bath meant to paralyze them. After that their throats get slit and they die in a slow painful death. •
The best way to help these birds or any animal is by going vegan. There are so many delicious plant based foods out there. The animals would appreciate it so much. UNTIL EVERY CAGE IS EMPTY🌱🐓
Get ready, because Cedar Row is attending @vegfestguelph this weekend! The event will be taking place on Saturday, September 21 from 11am-5pm at Riverside Park. Our merch will be available for purchase. Come say hi and chat with us! 🌱 #PeaceBeginsOnOurPlates
Do not support Zoos and fairs. Animals are used and abused for profit by greedy humans! Beulah spent her life controlled by such greed! She died never having experienced the freedom ALL animals deserve and are entitled to!! Elephants are majestic and intelligent beings yet this poor soul never had a chance to live her true purpose. I am angry, sad, sick and tired at the way we treat animals. Be one less person hurting animals. At last you can Rest In Peace beautiful girl, too bad you had to die to get it!
"The best way, we believe, to help fight against the injustice that is happening to animals, is to sway public opinion, and so Moving Animals revolves around ensuring that our visual content is covered in some of the most engaged-with and far-reaching platforms."
@weanimals have always been a huge inspiration to us, so it was brilliant to chat with them about our international investigative work for animals 💚
Link in bio for the full interview where we talk about how we set out on - and sustain - this rewarding and difficult journey.

Because the animal agriculture industry is completely driven off of consumer demand, by making a simple switch such as choosing plant-based milk over dairy milk, each one of us is able to spare the lives of over 100 animals every single year.
By just choosing extra avocado instead of meat while ordering a sandwich, we prevent animals from going through endless amounts of unnecessary torture, abuse and suffering.
If we have the option to either directly spare the lives of innocent beings who feel pain and suffer, or fund their torture and death by choosing animal products, which actions should we support given the values we all hold?
Leadership is cultivated, not inherited. And if you don't see yourself as someone who has the potential to be a leader in the animal rights movement, I want to share my story with you.
In India, I was the only girl in school (Kindergarten through 12th grade) to get detention. I had trouble getting my work done in school and I would regularly get suspended. I barely graduated high-school with straight D's. I had no plans of going to college and the only reason I went is because my sister encouraged and helped me apply to San Francisco State University. I have made a lot and I mean A LOT of mistakes in my life that have landed me in a lot of trouble. If I had to describe myself as an 18 year old, I would describe myself as wreckless.
Nowhere inside of me did I see the capacity to become a leader, let alone get things done. But then, I found a purpose in the animals. I cried tears and tears of sadness watching animals being brutalized and felt the urge to step up in a world where others are not.
And in the last six years, despite a lot of struggles, I've come a long way. Below is a photo of me leading Cassie King in her first ever Open Rescue. I never saw myself as someone who could lead people inside of farms and slaugtherhouses, someone who was trustworthy or capable of leading others. Yet here I am. If I had to pinpoint what helped me get to this point, it would be the following three things: - Being surrounded by people who are motivated and take action. - Being a part of a movement which has a vision and a goal.
- Not letting fear of failure and self-doubt imprison me from taking action.
I feel confident leading hundreds, if not thousands of people to take groundbreaking action and pushing the animal rights movement forward. And you can too.
You can help cultivate leadership within yourself by surrounding yourself with incredible people who are taking the type of action you want to take. And you can do this by coming to the Animal Liberation California Convergence. You can get trained, inspired, and take action.
Hope to see you there!
“This is the story of the reclamation of my life.”
I wrote that years ago. What I should’ve said was “transformation”; the only way out is through.
I’m still here, weary spirit, chipped heart, strong vision. ✌️
