Video of the Day: Toronto Pig Save Provides Water for Pigs on Way to Slaughter

During the heat wave last week, activists from Toronto Pig Save provided water and watermelon to suffering pigs that were on a transport truck. I want to say thank you to them: THANK YOU.

This video is difficult to watch, but it must be. If you find yourself getting upset, think about why that is so, and do not repress those feelings. Examine them. “The animal looks at us, and whether we look away […] or not, we are exposed. Whether we change our lives or do nothing, we have responded. To do nothing is to do something.“*

What will you do, after you watch the video and gaze into the eyes of a suffering pig? If you are not okay with animals suffering, then you can help stop it: simply go vegan.

From the video:
“Toronto Pig Save’s mission is to make slaughterhouses have glass wall through collectively bearing witness and to encourage everyone to go vegan and be an animal activist every day due to the animal emergency suffered by hundreds of millions of animals in Canada and billions of victims worldwide each year.
