Weather Watch

Whilst the UK experienced unseasonably cold winter weather (yet again), the media focused on the travel disruptions, homes without electricity and some of the tragic human deaths and accidents.  In the near euphoria that seems to be generated amongst the media at such times, there was very little mention of the flight of animals, who also suffer terrible hardship.

Whilst the wild animal population is able to move and adapt, it is the plight of farmed animals which the media seem to have overlooked.  Is this because farm animals are simply a commodity?  Do they suffer any less because they are a commercial entity?  Of course not, so why the near silence?

The original Treaty of Rome which established the EU gave the status of ‘goods or agricultural products’ to animals in the food chain.  No reference to their sentience or the amount of suffering which would result in them being treated as a consumable ‘product’.

The intensification of meat and dairy has lead to untold suffering at the hands of humans, and all for commercial gain.  Profit is at the heart of the meat and dairy industry and this pursuit of profit cannot run in parallel with treating animals fairly and justly.

At the end of the profit chain are shareholders and savers; individuals who invest their money via bank accounts, pensions, Super etc.  Each of these individual shareholders sanction the poor and degrading treatment of animals.  Many of these individuals will all say “oh, what a shame” if they happen to catch a news item showing sheep or cows frozen to death in the snow.  Some may even ask why wasn’t something down about it? Well, perhaps nothing was done because they, as owners of the companies involved somewhere in the animal food chain, have asked for that little bit of extra interest or profit to be squeezed out of their investment money and, ultimately, it is the animals who suffer from the squeeze.

Are you one of these savers or shareholders? What is your money doing now…right now?  Have you any idea? Are you part of the problem or will you move your money to be cruelty free and become part of the solution?
