The absolute horror 😿 #Repost @shaunmonson with @get_repost
All life wants to live. No revelation there. All life clings to existence. So imagine if you were locked in a cage that’s locked in a windowless room where the doors are then locked as a great flood is coming. And as the waters continue to rise you frantically press your lips against the top of the cage, desperate for breath, until your cage is finally submerged. You hold your breath as long as you can, in all that cold and all that dark, and in all that pandemonium, until you can’t hold it anymore and in absolute terror you finally succumb by inhaling a lungful of water and begin to drown in that prison of a cage, fighting and banging and kicking against the bars, screaming for help that won’t come, as you gulp in more water, coughing and choking and gagging in suffocating agony until you began to lose consciousness and eventually drown. And this happens alongside your sisters and brothers and your babies, and their babies, also kept in cages all around you. How utterly, unspeakably, horrific, no? Because all life clings to life. Because of how dear the existence is. Well, you can help put a stop to this right now by not eating life that is kept in cages, or kept in enclosures, or kept from being free to live. It’s as simple as that. Its supply and demand. Please stop being the demand.

Photo by Waterkeeper Rick Dove showing factory farms underwater. So far, 1.7 million farm animals have been reported dead, and the number will almost certainly rise. Rather than addressing the suffering and panicked deaths these animals experienced, the industry focuses more on its economic losses. We need to stop supporting this industry with government subsidies, and consumers can also make a difference by voting with our dollars and eating plants instead of #animals.
