Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Animal Agriculture Alliance released a report detailing observations from the Animal Rights National Conference, held July 25 through July 28 in Alexandria, Va.The event was organized by the Farm Animal Rights Movement and sponsored by Mercy for Animals, The Save Movement, Compassion Over Killing and The Humane League, along with other animal rights extremist groups.“Animal rights extremists are becoming increasingly aggressive in their efforts to end animal agriculture,” said Kay Johnson Smith, Alliance president and CEO. “Releasing reports from major activist conferences enables everyone in animal agriculture to prepare for strategies and tactics targeting their livelihood.”Similar to last year’s conference, speakers made it clear their vision is animal liberation, not promoting animal welfare.“There is no such thing as humane slaughter and anyone who tells you differently is simply lying,” said Michael Budkie of Stop Animal Exploitation Now. Demetria Atkinson of Redefine Your Mind argued, “Animals are people too.” “We need to say that all animal agriculture is cruel and wrong,” said Karen Davis of United Poultry Concerns. A key theme of the conference was the desire to create a vegan world by 2026 to save the environment, but many activists had doubts.“Activism is so sad right now; when I look at our movement, I am incredibly disappointed,” said Lauren Ornelas of The Food Empowerment Project.“We vegans carry a heavy burden. No matter how hard we work, we will likely never see the end of it,” said Melanie Joy of Beyond Carnism.“We are not even close to being on the cusp of global veganism,” said Bruce Friedrich of The Good Food Institute.Attendees at the conference were encouraged to pressure restaurants and retailers and make it seem like a lot of people are asking for vegan meals by blitzing companies on social media, by mail and in-person. “Make sure you tag [brands] in the photo so that all they see is consumer demand for vegan [products],” said Laura Cascada of Compassion Over Killing. Cascada also urged conference attendees to write post cards so they could have “several hundred post cards to dump on the front step of [one restaurant chain] at some point.”In a workshop at the conference, The Humane League asked attendees to write birthday cards to the CEO of a major restaurant chain saying, “This will be the meanest card you’ll ever write.” While talking about corporate campaigns, Kelly Myer of The Humane League said, “We surround buildings so that employees have to see and feel guilt anytime they leave” and “An incremental approach is used to gradually switch companies over to veganism.”Speakers also focused on the use of “undercover” videos and the media to damage the reputation of animal agriculture and reach their goals. “Investigations are the single most powerful tool to expose the inherent cruelties in large-scale animal agriculture,” said William Rivas-Rivas of Animal Equality.“Make sure you start with something dramatic…That’s much more likely to go viral,” said Jane Velez-Mitchell of Jane UnChained News Network.Also speaking at the conference were: Erica Meier and Mike Wolf, Compassion Over Killing; Sean Thomas, Animal Equality; Jennifer Barkley, The Humane League; and Chris Berry and Daniel Waltz, Animal Legal Defense Fund.The 2019 Animal Rights National Conference Report, which includes personal accounts of speaker presentations and general observations, is available to Alliance members in theResource Library on the Alliance website. The Alliance also has reports from previous animal rights conferences accessible to members on its website at www.animalagalliance.org.
Robredo should’ve resigned as drug czar after lack of trust issue – Panelo AJ Coronel finished with only 10 points but he buried the biggest basket of the game—a triple with 1:22 remaining—to extend the lead to four for the Altas, who watched Andoy Estrella and Almel Orquina miss desperation triples in a frenetic endgame sequence.GJ Ilagan finished with 13 points, while Prince Eze added 11 points and grabbed 21 rebounds as the Altas chalked up their first victory in three outings. The Altas’ record should have been at 2-1, but their opening win against St. Benilde was nullified because they wore the wrong uniform color.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool stars“This is a good win for us,” said Altas coach Jimwell Gican.“We always tell the players to keep working hard and trust that we will get rewarded and this is what happened today.

Agarpara: Rebutting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tall claims that BJP alone will get 300 seats in the Lok Sabha, Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee said it is certain that the saffron party is not coming to power in Delhi. She also added that the saffron party was trying to destroy Bengal’s rich cultural heritage.While addressing a mammoth rally at Agarpara in North 24-Parganas on Wednesday afternoon, she said: “From where will they get so many seats? In Uttar Pradesh, BJP will not get more than 13 to 17 seats, while in Maharashtra and Rajasthan the number of seats will be equally less. In Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Odisha they will not get seats and in Bengal, they will get a big zero. So, from where will the seats come Modi babu.” Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataIt may be recalled that while addressing a rally at Taki, the Prime Minister had said: “BJP alone will get 300 seats and the NDA partners will increase their seats.” Banerjee said in a few days, the general elections will come to an end, but Modi has not uttered a single word on note ban, the suicide of farmers or why he has failed to give jobs to the people. “In 2014, he had said he would bring back black money deposited in banks outside India and deposit Rs 15 lakh in the bank account of everyone. It is a big hoax. He had announced that two crore people will get jobs which amount to 10 crore people in five years. Not only has that not happened, but around 12,000 farmers have committed suicide in the past five years. He has not said a word on his failure and has come in Bengal to incite one religion against the other,” she said. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateThe Trinamool supremo also alleged that BJP is trying to negatively impact Bengal’s great tradition and culture. “BJP is trying to force us to forget Rabindranath. This is their game plan,” she said, adding that CPI(M) had tried this many years ago. “They imported Marx and Lenin and dropped ‘Sahaj Path’ of Tagore from the syllabus,” Banerjee added. She had earlier garlanded a portrait of Pandit Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar kept on the dais. Coming down heavily on Amit Shah, she said: “In Delhi, Shah had alleged that Trinamool supporters had planned to malign him. Who is he? Why would Trinamool try to malign him? They have destroyed the statue of Vidyasagar and are so shameless that they are now putting the blame on us.” Alleging that BJP supporters had vandalised the half-bust of Vidyasagar at Vidyasagar College on Tuesday, Banerjee said: “They have brought goons from Rajasthan, Jharkhand and different districts in Bengal. They have been put up in different hotels and lodges in and around the city.” Urging people to vote for party candidate Saugata Roy, she said: “Saugata da is a veteran Parliamentarian. He raises all important issues on the floor of the House.”
