I still remember how I felt the first time I saw the way that animals are treated on factory farms. I was sad and angry, but most of all, I wanted to do something to stop it! I decided to stop eating rotting flesh that very same day.
Watching that one video changed my life forever! It’s not easy to open our eyes to how animals suffer on factory farms, but it’s important to see and to urge others to take a stand. For many people, it’s the first time they are staring into the faces of the animals they call “steak,” “ham,” or “nugget.” There in front of them is the irrefutable evidence that their “entrée” was a cow who coughed and choked as the blood spilling from her slit throat ran down her face and covered the floor below, a pig who screamed and cried as he was burned to death in scalding-hot water, a chicken whose desperate squawks went unheeded as her broken legs were slammed into shackles and she stared past the long line of her friends to the whirring blades that would end her life.
Check out people’s reactions when watching peta2′s “One Minute of Reality: Factory Farming” video for the very first time:
Ask your friends and family to watch the video, and let us know their reactions. Don’t forget to tell them that the best way that they can help animals is by going vegan.
Never be silent!
