The following notes and videos are reposted from the PETA-website. They are not the exaggeration of some idealists or crazy animal lovers, but the horrible truth about the treatment of animals the basic feelings of which are the same as ours.
Many people have been talking about a new era to come. But a new era will not come without actions, or because we sit down with a stupid smile on our faces waiting for the miracle. Changes come out of actions.
Where can mankind be going with this suffering on their account?
The first video contains horrible graphic content of animals moving desperately while hanged up on their rear legs and skinned alive. This happens in China almost every day. No being in the world deserves such a horrible death.
I do not want to hate the Chinese for this, and I think I’m speaking for many people. The Chinese people have to be made aware of this content and need to put pressure on their government with international help. Please help spreading this!
And don’t say it’s not true. German documentary filmmaker Manfred Karemann documented this already years ago. The horror I felt when I first saw this has never changed.
