<<<PLEASE BE AWARE THIS VIDEO HOLDS NOTHING BACK!! IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH PLEASE CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED!!!!
Not because I want to bring up the topic again
but what are your opinions on this video? I found it on a vegan fb's page and the video is not posted publicly. You need the link in order to watch it bc youtube will take it down otherwise.
IMO, its an important video but it has tremendous biases. (****I only watched it until a minute!! But I know what these vids are like) it comes from a group called Mercy for Animals http://www.mercyforanimals.org/
Which I have no affiiation with, and I have never looked on their site until today. I don't know what kind of investigations they do and based on this video and the people posting on it its a peta-breed aimed at sensationalizing events rather than sharing proper ratios and stats and facts. I do not condone peta in any way and I think over the good they do for animals they do it in all the wrong ways and portray someone with a conscious like me in the wrong way. Everytime someone finds out I'm a vegetarian they assume I love peta -_- I could call peta out on MANY matters but I won't. To each their own. . .
Anyway, this group did up a peta type video. Narrated by a celebrity and shows shocking undercover factory farming footage.
I could only watch until a minute into it with a farmer standing on a pig. I turned it off but since its valid to my beliefs I decided to share it. I stopped eating meat when I was 14 based on images that this video shows and videos. Now, my problem is, since I cannot watch it I'm stuck making a biased opinion on it....
This video portrays farms in the USA. Since the USA designed this method of farming in approximately the 1920's when they realised animals could be raised indoors in a factory like way to produce more and more the humanity went down. It is impossible to care properly for so many animals and when the animals are only meant to be produced then killed the treatment of them is downgraded. The very thought of factory farming is cruel, not just the act. **Tidbit of info for the history buffs- Hitler designed his ghetto's based on factory farms in America**
While this was filmed in America, using footage of a couple workers, is this a biased film?? Can one justify its means if it causes many other people to make a change? Apparantly one of the workers from the video is in jail now doing time. This does not mean that all farms treat its animals this way and it does not mean that all farms are this bad.
I could only watch it until about a minute in, so I have no real opinion. But I have seen video's before and loving animals they made me cry and want to do something. I stopped eating meat. My boyfriend eats meat and says he will not stop but he will not watch something like this, he saw the link in my browser and asked wtf?
I guess, the point of these videos is geared at people willing to succumb to the horrors and absolute gore of these videos as a justification of why they dont eat meat, or don't eat it from factory farms. Unfortunately, they say that if everyone in the civilized world realised that factory farming is bad and home raised their animals for food there would be enough food for everyone on earth. I think its too far gone, IMO, that humans have created factory farms out of greed and desire to have more and more rather than share with the world. Humans cannot live now without factory farms if they want to eat meat. There are simply too many humans on earth now, science keeps us alive for about 100 years and with more and more production of humans there will always be the existance of these awful awful farms. Pretty soon, as it is in some parts of New York and Toronto, humans will be living in shady cramped conditions.. Human factory farms. What do we produce? Our labour... Think about that. . .
