Meet Your Meat This 2 minute short film is solely about animal homicide for human intake. I advise you only to watch it if you are on the fence about vegeterianism and are primarily concerned about it due to non-animal rights reasons. There are plenty of reasons to go vegan but 1 is because it's just the right thing to do (by society's standards).
So if society's standards dictate that not eating animals is the correct way of action, why does society eat so many animals? Because society has become corrupt by profiteers, because society is currently immoral and inhumane.
Have compassion, do not watch this film if you are a super sensitive person, it will upset you.
I'm not going to open up a seperate PETA topic, though somebody else might. PETA is the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and like Alicia I support them fully, I have volunteered with PETA, flown to their HQ and met their team.
PetaKillsAnimals.com(CCF) is a website that tries to tell you that PETA is hypocritical for euthanizing animals (putting them to sleep), is it true? Yes. Peta euthanizes animals, but why? Why we euthanize, by PETA.
so it's important to contrast Meet Your Meat with the criticism of it. The Center for Consumer Freedom (PetaKillsAnimals) is funded primarily by unhealthy giants, looking to poison humanity. I know it's upsetting, but it's the truth. PETA is not looking to get you to stop eating meat for massive profit, their aim is to take a look at how animals are treated and to get you to assume responsibility for your contribution to the problem and solution.
If you get a lot out of meet your meat and you want an even longer more thorough investigation of the truth, check out Earthlings by Joaquin Pheonix - it's statement: WE ARE ALL Earthlings.
link to Earthlings EARTHLINGS is a feature length documentary about humanity's absolute dependence on animals (for pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and scientific research) but also illustrates our complete disrespect for these so-called "non-human providers." The film is narrated by Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix (GLADIATOR) and features music by the critically acclaimed platinum artist Moby.
With an in-depth study into pet stores, puppy mills and animals shelters, as well as factory farms, the leather and fur trades, sports and entertainment industries, and finally the medical and scientific profession, EARTHLINGS uses hidden cameras and never before seen footage to chronicle the day-to-day practices of some of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit. Powerful, informative and thought-provoking, EARTHLINGS is by far the most comprehensive documentary ever produced on the correlation between nature, animals, and human economic interests. There are many worthy animal rights films available, but this one transcends the setting. EARTHLINGS cries to be seen. Highly recommended!
Earthlings is such a beautiful and horrifying film at the same time. I think I had been vegan for about a year when I first watched it and it has been the only 'animal rights' film I've ever seen.
As far as PETA, I think my own biggest hinderance to being even vegetarian was groups like PETA. One thing I'd want every potential vegan to know is that you don't have to be affiliated or support PETA to be vegan. Vegan does not mean PETA supporter, animal rights activist does not mean PETA supporter. If someone wants to support them, that is all well and good but I personally won't.
I totally agree Leena, whenever I meet someone new who doesn't understand veganism, they always inevitably say something about me being part of PETA. I hate that they seem to have a monopoly on animal rights - as far as most people are concerned.
