Feel like chicken tonight?

What’s on my mind…

Chickens. And how life is cheep. The numbers are crazy, one billion little lives wiped out each year in the UK alone. So much cruelty on a mind boggling scale. And  excused by ignorance: “oh but chickens are daft” or “they don’t feel” and even “but are chickens animals?”.

Why I'll Always be Vegan.

IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT

I don’t find investigating factory farms easy. It does not matter how many times I have clambered over fences in the thick of night drawing towards some ominous concrete ugliness, I always feel a sickness in the pit of my belly. It’s not just the thought of confronting what our species does to the animals inside the sheds, it’s because I’m frightened for my own safety, and the safety of my friends. I’m not that brave.
