THE COST OF A PANDEMIC: Bailing out exploitative and cruel animal-based food industries

0

Taxpayers’ money is being used to fund these exploitative animal-based food industries, and when financial problems are faced, more violence is always their solution.

ANIMAL JUSTICE PROJECT: The coronavirus pandemic that has engulfed the world is deadly to both human and non-human lives. With the toll of human victims increasing, the numbers of animals at the mercy of this disease is rapidly growing too. Supply and demand chains have been hugely affected. Millions of animals around the world are being buried alive and slaughtered on farm. They are treated as though they are objects we can simply throw away. Each individual, a sentient and feeling animal who wants to live and thrive, discarded. Whether they are fish from British fish farms or pigs and chickens on US farms, millions are dying indirectly from this pandemic…

Animal exploitation – animal agriculture and aquaculture, the fishing industry and wild animal consumption – is the greatest cause of pandemics and epidemics. With increased pressure on these industries, the cracks are beginning to show. The truth is being revealed: animal agriculture is propped up by the government; when exploiting animals is no longer profitable, government bailouts are essential to keep these businesses going, which in turn shows the intense fragility of a food system that is heavily reliant on animal-based foods; taxpayers’ money is being used to fund these exploitative industries; violence is inherent within these industries and when problems are faced, violence is always their solution…

There are currently many small slaughterhouses closed. In the UK, £10 million has already been given to the fishing industry, £1 million has been committed to increase the public’s dairy consumption, plus £10,000 for each dairy farmer. Others, including the shellfish industry, are reaching out for help too. We are at a pivotal time. These industries have been propped up with bailouts and funding for too long. Resources are being lost and animals are paying the ultimate price. Violence is at the heart of these businesses and this is not what we should be supporting…

The time for change is NOW. With desperate pleas coming from many animal-exploiting sectors, we must pressure the government to hand over funding only to industries willing to transition to less-destructive and kinder productions. We must demand an end to animal exploitation by corporations and push for innovative and environmentally-conscious plant-based farming. It has never been more urgent for us to demand whole system change and a move away from traditional abusive and violent cycles. People and animals are dying by the millions. We must act NOW! SOURCE…
