This December is the second anniversary of the release of pigtruth.com, our powerful undercover footage of the horrific gas stunning and slaughter of pigs that shocked Australia.
Most pigs in Australia are stunned in gas chambers, people think these pigs gently fall asleep, the opposite is true. They struggle violently. Their eyes and nostrils burn intensely. What the industry don’t want us to know is that water and high levels of carbon dioxide form carbonic acid on their eyes and every surface, so when the pigs inhale, their lungs, throat, nose and mouth becomes acidic. In their last moments these pigs are burning from the inside out.
Animals are not property, they are not our slaves. We are against this cruel gassing and the whole unjust slaughter industry.
We recommend anyone who is considering fasting consult with their medical practitioner if they have any concerns. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, are elderly or a minor, sick, undergoing medical treatment or have any history of eating disorders, diabetes or blood sugar issues please DO NOT participate in the fasting aspect of this event.
It is important that you remain hydrated, water will be provided but please ensure you have adequate fluids for the duration.
Fasting is not a requirement of this event, please only do so if you are in good health and adequately prepared to do so. If at any time during your fast you are concerned about your health please break your fast and consult a medical practitioner.
Animal agriculture is a leading cause of global warming, water usage, oceanic dead zones, land clearing, and species extinction. We save lives and the planet when we don't wear animals.
Some of the supposed 'animal free' testing alternatives aren't actually cruelty free...
The term 'cruelty-free' in cosmetics has become synonymous with 'animal testing free', but even without animal testing, animals are harmed in the beauty industry.
Animal testing in the beauty industry is needless cruelty for the sake of vanity.
The connection between the climate crisis and animal agriculture is clear.
