Tom Justyniarski: Teaching Children to Save Animals, Part 2 of 2 (INT)

“Dogs are able to recognize our good heart.” “Dogs think similarly to us; they differ only because they cannot speak.” “Dogs give people a sense of responsibility, happiness, and the fact that they are sensitive.” It shows me that there is nothing else but to raise kids’ awareness and to enjoy this world, to enjoy joy and love. Tom’s focus is on instilling a deep sensitivity in Polish youth for the feelings and needs of all living beings. Change the next generation so that we can have a better life on earth.

Tom Justyniarski: Teaching Children to Save Animals, Part 1 of 2(INT)

I came from Poland. I am an animal lover, teacher and writer. I save animals, and I believe that - thanks to these actions we are all taking with regard to animals and saving them - the suffering will come to an end and we’ll do many important things. I’ve written 10 books for children, a few novels, poems included, and two fairy tales. The book “Dog’s Worries” became a sensation in Poland. It won a Ministry of National Education contest as the best schoolbook and it has become a main schoolbook, meaning a compulsory book for children ages 8 to 12. "To change the next generation so that children will be sensitive all their lives and that they will love every living thing with an open heart."

FIAPO: The Voice for Animals in India, Part 3 of 3

FIAPO realizes that the root of most animal welfare issues is humanity’s demand for meat. The organization believes the best way to deal with the barbarism of producing and consuming animals is to boost public adoption of the compassionate lifestyle, namely the plant-based diet. Initiated in April 2013, there are grassroots activists in more than 70 cities, making Living Free the largest vegan advocacy network in India. FIAPO also promotes a unique initiative called the “21 Day Compassion Challenge.” It provides practical guidance on how to help people transition to a vegan way of life, which is the best solution for halting animal suffering.

And now, it’s been proven that it is probably one of the most significant threats to the survival of life in the sea. If anybody eats fish, they are eating plastic. Microplastic is now in fish; it’s in meat; it’s in the soil; it’s everywhere. And it’s a non-biodegradable substance, but the problem is that also it attracts things like PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) and other chemicals to it, almost like a magnet. And so, it’s a way for people when they’re eating fish, they eat plastic, they also eat PCBs and other chemicals in that form. I think it’s one of the most insidious threats right now to the survival of all life in the ocean. And of course, that means to all life on the planet.

The Podemos Party’s Sergio García Torres: Advancing Animal Rights and Veganism in Spain, Part 2 of 2

Everything that is involved in the production of meat generates, in the process from the beginning to the end, a carbon footprint impossible to compare with other types of food production worldwide. The FAO(Food and Agriculture Organization) already knows about this.Another very important issue is pesticides, which are killing the bees and all other pollinators. If bees disappear, we humans will also disappear within a 10-year period. In other words, insect are needed to pollinate. We must move towards banning any kind pesticide that harms humanity. Because if bees get harmed, we are also harming ourselves.

Super Seal Conservation in South Africa & Canada

Super Seal Conservation in South Africa & Canada

Supreme Master Ching Hai explained why seals are so vital to our planet during a 2009 interview with the Irish journalist Louise Kings. “The seals have conveyed that it is important for them to be allowed to stay on Earth - not for themselves, but so they can continue doing their job, which is to keep the Earth in balance with love. You see, the seals and the whales emanate an incredible, great power of divine love, an unconditional love that could be likened to that between a mother and her child. They anchor and distribute this wave of love across our planet. And it is this love that is sustaining our planet and keeping it from destruction up to now. So , we should never ever hunt and kill these noble, gracious helpers of humankind and the planet.”

Back in 1979, if you said the word “vegan,” nobody even knew what you were talking about - from the planet Vega or something. Nobody knew what you were talking about. So, now, that’s pretty much universal. And the amazing thing about veganism is the incredible surge, about a 600% increase in the last couple of years in people choosing veganism as an alternative. And I think that’s going to grow because one of the things I’ve discovered over the years from social movements is that it doesn’t take a majority to carry out anything.
