Why do most vegans want others to consider going vegan:
* To improve their health
* To improve the environment
* To improve the outcomes for the animals
* To reduce world hunger
If you are actually interested in this issue then listen to this speech from Australian of the Year – Philip Wollen – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQCe4qEexjc

If you are a meat eater who simply says, but I don’t want to change despite the ethical, environmental and health impacts, at least you are being honest. If you try to hide behind pseudo science (the same sort the cigarette companies tried to use for years), then you are kidding yourself and trying to deceive others.

Seems you are the one trying to deceive. It is neither healthier nor better for the environment to be a vegan. Lies like this is why you peeps are not taken seriously.

Independant organisations say there are health benefits. eg – http://www.eatright.org/about/content.aspx?id=8357
The united nations says there are massive environmental benefits. – http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/jun/02/un-report-meat-free-diet

Who should I believe? Major independant organisations who specialise in nutrition and health, the united nations who analyse the world situation.

Or you, someone who isnt interested in the truth !!!

First article has zero evidence and says no more than it may be healthier. A far more realistic reason as to why a vegan may obtain these results is the lack of bad foods and fast foods. Somebody on a healthy diet including good and well prepared meat would achieve the same, if not better outcome.

Please only post facts and not a article that says its possibly healthier.

Second article is flawed. If meat production is replaced by vegetable production, it’s still going to use the same amount of water, fertiliser and pesticides. It’s going to have processing factories and mass transport. Please only post articles that show both sides instead of single sided ones.

The arseclowns on this pig farm are cruel and stupid morons, and they deserve of a bit of the same treatment in return.

It’s a special kind of blunt evil, and we keep seeing it. And time and again, it’s exposed by animal groups, not the government that is purporting to uphold the law. More power to the animal groups.

The footage is horrific.100 people couldn’t clean up that mess in a week! Why can’t they just shut the piggery down, (humanely) euthanase the ones that are too far gone and confiscate/sell the others to cover vet and regulatory costs? I can’t understand why authorities don’t regulate and monitor these industries more.

Well done to those who brought this to light although it’s a bit naive to expect everyone else to adopt a vegan lifestyle. You might get a few on board (with negligible impact) but, in your efforts to proote veganism, you are potentially missing out on a better collective result by simply trying to get others to decrease their overall consumption of meat and other animal products or possibly even adopting a vegetarian lifestyle.

Cruel and stupid often go together.

I just came to this thread and read the comments, then decided to have a look at the footage. I couldn’t watch it all. Forget hijacking the thread on vegan v meat eaters folks, and focus on the issue that this is going on right on our doorstep. Whilst I am beyond appalled and feel pretty helpless in the face of this, at least one thing we can do is support the RSPCA in their actions to deal with it.

While I didn’t watch it, when I went to watch the footage on youtube, a related link was Wally’s pig roast at Murrumbateman. Is that a regular event? There’s another thing to do – boycott it, picket it. And tell people, as many people as you can. Make this guy a local pariah.

If you’re eating at the local eateries in the area, be sure and ask them where their pork comes from, and tell them why you’re asking.

I wouldn’t leave this guy in charge of a stuffed toy.

Thats a incredibly good point, how can we get a list of the butchers in town he supplies? They need to be shown this and if they dont care, boycott them aswell.

But what are your motives for wanting that information? Is it to then publicise that Johnnys Butchery is bad and supporting animal cruelty? Or do you intend to go to the butchers and make them aware? I know a few butchers and a lot of them buy meat from an abattoir or a third party and have no idea where the meat comes from so they may not be aware of any cruelty.

In saying that the butchers I know all tour farms before they become clients. They do this not to prevent cruelty, but so they can be sure they are getting the best quality for their customers.

I watched half the footage this morning on youtube (and it was enough). It would be great to give the guy in it who kicks the piglet, a bit of his own medicine.

The guy who owns the place must be a retard. I think the math is pretty simple. You own a pig farm, pigs = cash. The amount of dead piglets in that place is disgusting. Flies on pigs, sores and haemorroids. I doubt a vet has been in there for years. With any luck the workers have all caught some disgusting disease.

How often do inspectors inspect? Are they being paid off? Do they just go the house and have a cup of tea? The cobwebs look 10 years old, and you can only imagine the stench.

How hard is it to pick up dead bodies and dispose of them, keep the place clean, and treat the animals injuries?? There should be no second chance in this day and age. The place should be closed down, and the animals put down, given away or slaughtered. Death would be better than the hell they are living.

If I treated my dog like that, I would be banned from owning animals. It should be no different for the commercial owners.

All of these are good ideas. I am certainly going to be asking where pork products come from now on.

It’s not much of a choice though is it? Local producers treating animals inhumanely or the danish stuff coming out of vast factory combines and pumped up with water and sulfides.

So give it up. Tofu on toast is just fantastic.
