All the same bees

Paulina Pospieszalska

It’s all the same fruit

Cindy Jackson

From the same tree

Sue Moxley

It’s all the same heart, beating within

Harry Stone

It’s all the same skin

It’s all the same footprint, Left in the sand

It’s all the same mammal, All the same man

Juliet Gellatley/Jilly Johnson

It’s all the same pathway, All the same bends

Jenny Seagrove/Annika Svenska

All the same ends

Victoria Eisermann & Ziggie Sky Ward

So what’s the difference between us all


It’s nothing much and it’s very small

They have a right to be, as much as we


It’s all the same life

Imagine Your Dog, Imagine Your Cat

Butchered Like Cattle, Then Hung From A Rack

Imagine Your Cat, Imagine Your Dog

Living Hell On Earth, In A Factory Farm

Debeaked like a chicken, alive and awake

With no anaesthetic but a searing hot blade.

It’s all the same life, so why don’t we care?

Why’s torture wrong for our pets but for livestock it’s fair?

Its a factory farm,

Jared Paul

Where ever you run, you can’t hide


Let your conscience be your guide

Polly Browne

Love is the message so get on board


It’s all the same life

Harry Stone, Chris Baker

It’s all the same earth

Paulina Pospieszalska

All the same sky

Anneka Svenska

All the same clouds

David Van Day & Harry Stone

That go drifting, drifting by, In the blink of an eye, So why let them die?

Chris Baker, Debbie Curtis, Polly Brown, Harry Stone

It’s all the same birds, It’s All the same bees

Josef Brown,

We’re from the same tree

Josef Brown, Chris Baker, Debbie Curtis

It’s all the same birds, All the same bees, We’re from the same tree

It’s all the same birds, All the same bees, We’re from the same tree

It’s all the same birds, All the same bees, We’re from the same tree
