Vegans for World Peace

Our food system is inefficient, cruel and we are wasting our resources. We will run out of clean water, deplete the soil of nutrients and collapse the ecosystem. We are destroying the tropical rainforest, the lungs of the planet, and home to millions (if not trillions) of species of life forms that took millions of years of evolution to create. We are growing food on this land to feed the animals we eat (for the most part.) We are creating mass extinction and we are not immune to extinction ourselves as we are dealing in a land of finite resources. Humans are starving right now because we choose to feed their food to the animals we eat. Approx. 50,000 litres of drinking water goes into producing 1 kilo of beef or a gallon of milk. It takes approximately 10 times more grain to feed a "food" animal to eat it than it does to just feed the grain directly to the human being. We can feed 7 billion humans much more efficiently than 100 billion or more land animals. And we are ignoring our moral obligation to protect innocent animals and people who cannot protect themselves. Yes animals in the wild eat flesh but they do not breed in captivity and confine their prey to spaces indoors without space enough to turn around or be comfortable at all during the entire life. These animals are living a life of torture. No wild animal is so cruel to abuse, torture, confine, neglect, overcrowd, beat, cram in cages so small they never move, allow them no exercise, no sunshine, EVER, no movement even! Cut up into pieces while conscious, skin them alive, boil alive, etc etc etc This is common the world over. 100 billion a year we slaughter!!!!! and we kill another 1-3 trillion in the oceans. Non human animals are not capable of cultivating plant crops, however we are. We do not need animal products to survive. Some animals do need other animals to survive we are not one of them - many have proven this. Our intestines are long like herbivores and we have a back up emergency system we are abusing. Animal protein and fat creates disease in our body where plant food does not. We can derive all we need from plants and bacteria, rather than have the animals process this for us. If we focus on feeding the people directly we stop the torture and slaughter. If you eat meat dairy or eggs and you watch how the pigs, cows, chickens, farmed fish etc live you, will see they suffer immensely. When we take from the oceans we risk the lives of the sharks and whales who are essential to the ocean ecosystem. We need to keep it in balance. And the taste for flesh is not worth mass suffering beyond comprehension. We can learn to eat the plants. If you don't have the stomach to watch these videos on how the "food" animals live - it is because you already know it is creating suffering for them. Please stop supporting animal cruelty immediately! We can eat if we grow food for us rather than the animals we breed into existence to consume. We threaten the wildlife when we farm the land to grow the animal food. There is enough food for everyone but not enough to feed and care properly for so many animals! Every social issue is solved by going to a plant based diet and provides a tangible way of knowing who is cruel and who believes all life is sacred. The torture can stop but it takes each and every one of us to make it happen. Violence is a choice. Please stop contributing to lifetimes of starvation, torture, confinement, abuse, and slaughter. Please stop! Let us instead worship all life, not just our own. Let's love and worship instead of destroy, torture, and exploit ok?! Please! We can do this! And we will be better for it!

Boiled and skinned alive! - The Petition Site

Boiled and skinned alive! - The Petition Site: "BOILED AND SKINNED ALIVE? If you eat chicken, ham, bacon or beef, then you probably eat an animal that was boiled or skinned alive at least once a week. Shockingly, slaughterhouse workers admit to deliberately beating, strangling, boiling, or dismembering animals alive. "Today’s slaughter line does not stop for anything: Not for injured workers, not for contaminated meat, and least of all, not for sick or disabled animals. Due to meteoric line speeds, workers are often unable to stun or bleed animals adequately, and, as a result, animals proceed through the butchering process fully conscious. In the words of one worker: "These hogs get up to the scalding tank, hit the water, and just start screaming and kicking. I'm not sure whether the hogs burn to death before drowning. The water is 140 degrees." Poultry, exempt from coverage under the Humane Slaughter Act, are routinely conscious when immersed in the scald tank as well. Following long government paper trails, it is revealed t... m"

BEING VEGAN - The Most Important Generation Ever - Las Vegas Informer:

'via Blog this'

“If we do not act, we shall surely be dragged down the long, dark and shameful corridors of time reserved for those who possess powers without compassion, might without morality and strength without sight.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
We often think of a generation in terms like an “older” generation or “younger” generation; “Generation X” or “Generation Y”.  We have the “Baby Boom” generation that are entering the retirement years right now.   Generally speaking, the word “generation” is thought of as approximately 30 years among human beings and is accepted as the average period between the birth of parents and the birth of their offspring. I like to think of things in terms of generations of time and it is my assertion that we are entering the most important generation of time in history.  I know that it is a lot to say and lay claim to.  Yet I don’t know of a time in history where we face as much peril as we do now.  I know there have been periods of great conflict when it seemed like the entire world was at war.  Times when plagues cut a deadly swath through humanity.  There have been times of terrible darkness of the human spirit and condition.  Despite our technological successes and improvement of life conditions in many ways, it is in this generation that we also face issues that threaten the very life of the world that we live on.
Today we live on a planet that is full of crisis.  The impact of our decades of polluting our planet and robbing it of its natural resources is catching up with us.  We produce enough food to feed everyone on Earth and yet millions die of hunger and lack of adequate drinking water.  We are in a world health care crisis. Despite spending an unprecedented amount on health care and research each year, we are no closer to stemming the tide of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and a wide array of diseases.  We suffer from obesity and food allergies like never before.  Our world food supply has been attacked and is attempting to be controlled by major corporations with both short and long-term effects that can be devastating. Economies around the world are teetering on the brink of collapse. Political tensions seem to be high in almost every country and mass protests are being seen in various countries around the world.  Humans cannot seem to keep from finding ways of killing one another.  We eliminate species of animals to extinction regularly and continue a great holocaust against these creatures in numbers that reach the hundreds of billions each year. In some ways we have learned so much through history, and in other ways we have learned so little and have not evolved nearly enough.
Renowned water scientists speaking through United Nations sounded a great warning bell this past year when they said that we are going to have to change our ways by the year 2050 or we will see unprecedented food and water shortages. They said that we will need to switch to a primarily plant-based diet long before then in order to insure enough food and water for the planet.  Right now, inordinate amounts of food and water are being used to feed our livestock to produce animal-based foods.  This dependence that we have had, especially in the past 50 years, for using animals for our food has also caught up to us and is contributing in major ways to a number of the aforementioned crises.  It is certainly contributing to the health care crisis we face, and now more and more of the medical and scientific community are understanding the devastating effect that eating animals is having upon our health.  The production of livestock contributes more to air pollution than all of our transportation combined while also polluting our ground, rivers and streams.  It leads to deforestation.  These industries are also a part of the corporate power groups that are attempting to control our food supply and much of the genetically-modified food that is being grown is being fed to these animals and is thus entering our food supply.  Perhaps even more importantly, we cannot expect to have peace with other men if we cannot first find peace on our plates.  We need to stop killing animals for our pleasure.  We do not need to kill them for our food or our clothing.  There are alternative and superior ways of eating and living.
The good news to this is that a compassionate force of people is rising up to save the planet. I believe that the future of the world is vegan where we will not hold animals in captivity or use them for our food or pleasure.  The number of people that are not eating or using animals in any way in their lives has doubled in the past couple of years in this country and is growing at an even faster rate in other countries of the world.  This force of people is seeing exponential growth and we will see new industries raised up to meet the demand for new products, thus stimulating the economy and perhaps redistributing some of the wealth that is being hoarded by corporations today.  As people switch to a healthier, plant-based diet we will see less of a dependence on health care and a decrease in diseases. We will take back control of our food supply.  We will make it possible for the people of the world to have food and water. We can see the planet healed and rid of most pollution.  People can dig in their heels and fight this but this is not only the way things are going to go…it is the way that they have to go.  We will see critical mass…I believe we can see a tipping point in this generation and stem the tide of the crisis’s before us.  I am only one, but linked together with other like-minded and compassionate people around this country and around the world…we shall be an unshakeable force that will lead this world into an age of social justice, compassion, health, healing and peace among all creatures. This can be the generation that will change it all.
“We are the ones we have been waiting for.”   The Hopi Elders
Paul Graham
Paul Graham was born and raised in Northern California and has lived in Las Vegas since 2004.  He is a top wedding officiate, a green Realtor and writer.  He has a daily vegan food blog www.eatingveganinvegas.tumblr.com which is 365 days and 365 vegan meals in Las Vegas.  He can also be reached at eatingveganlv@gmail.com or www.facebook.com/EatingVeganinVegas.
