The heroes of Virunga National Park in Republic of Congo

Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo has a lot of beautiful & endangered animals. The true heroes are there, in ranger uniform gaurding these endangered mountain gorillas. Men like Jean Claude Kiza Vunabandi who was killed on October 25th, 2015, and 100’s more rangers there who’ve been killed defending these beautiful innocent animals in the past years.

If you get the chance, watch the 2014 documentary “Virunga”, the films motto is awesome! It is “Conservation is war”.

Rescue of Rita – Maoland Romania great rescue story

With all the talk about the Yulin Dog meat festival happening now, it becomes very depressing to know this is happening in our world. I just want to note some good (great!) things that are still happening.

Rita is a tiny dog, skin and bones found in Romania by the Maoland Animal Shelter. Look at how Rita has transformed from day 1 that she was found, until the most recent photo. It’s heart-warming for sure!

Lets hope that Yulin turns out to be a success, by ending the horrific cruelest “festival” in the world.

Read the entire story and see all the pictures of Rita’s progress from day 1 til year later on their Facebook page here. Also you can donate to K-9 Angels in Romania, donate here.

Activist against Activists – Adrian Radford the hypocrite

Adrian Radford, aka Ian Farmer, is a gay rights activist and ex-British soldier who became friends with many animal rights activists including Heather Nicholson, Greg & Natasha Avery and others who were part of the SHAC group (wiki) (Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty).

SHAC is an animal rights activist group who took a stand against the animal torture experts at Huntingdon Life Sciences (wiki). This hypocrite, Radford, infiltrated the SHAC group and eventually reported all their activities to the police, which led to many arrests.

This is Adrian Radford.

Evidence that SHAC provided had proven that HLS had killed over 500 animals per day. And a lot of them tortured and dissected while still alive.

It is my opinion that these SHAC members who are still serving prison time should be released. If anyone needs to be in jail, it should be Adrian Radford “the beagle” and some members of HLS company.

Animal Rights National Conference 2015

Animal Rights National Conference 2015

The Animal Rights National Conference is being held in Alexandria, Virginia (near to Washington, D.C.), on July 30 – August 2, 2015. Take a look at the converence website here: http://arconference.org

The expo is set to have 100 speakers from 60 different animal rights and animal protection organizations, including PETA, Farm Sanctuary, The Humane League, Mercy For Animals, SAEN, Compassion Over Killing, and many more. There will also be 100 sessions on animal advocacy, organizing, tactics and also confronting certain animal-related protection and environment issues.

I would love to start attending conferences and seminars at big animal rights expo’s like these. Just get more of an insight on what is going on with each animal rights organization, what they are doing to help, how they allocate their funds (so we/I can choose which ones to donate to, or not), and to possibly learn better ways on how to educate other people, or convince others to care about the animals in our world. And as Jenny Brown (founder of Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary) puts it, “Animals are with us, not FOR us“.

Anyone be an animal rights activist, even if you are a meat eater. We all need to stand up for animal rights, for the ethical treatment of animals, no matter if it’s pets, strays, or animals that people eat!

If you are in the area, please visit the conference and send us details, pictures, info, I would love to hear about it.

Ronnie Lee

Animal LIberation Front - Ronnie Lee

Ronnie Lee (wiki) is a known animal rights activist who is mostly known for founding the ALF (wiki ), Animal Liberation Front.

Animal Liberation Front is an animal rights organization that partakes in direct action against abuse to animals, sometimes using illegal activities. ALF states they are a non-violent group, for the most part, my opinion on whether they use violent or non-violent tactics is irrelevant. Their cause is good and great. Their slogan is:

“Any act that furthers the cause of animal liberation, where all reasonable precautions are taken not to harm human or non-human life, may be claimed as an ALF action.”

So I stand beside ALF and love what they have done in terms of helping animals, and their intentions.

We salute you Ronnie, ALF, and Arkangel Magazine

Cruel dog meat trade in Southeast Asia needs your help!

Thailand is infamous for the cruel dog exporting to Vietnam for “dog meat trade”. Not only are these domesticated animals eaten, they are tortured and put into VERY harsh living conditions, like being smashed together in barbed wire fenced crates stacked on top of each other, with no water, and not food 🙁

Please help take a stand against this cruel business, help by donating to Soi Dog Foundation, it was created to help animals, especially dogs caught into the illegal and torturous dog meat trade.

See their website here: http://www.soidog.org/en/dogmeat/

Dog meat trade Asia
We cannot afford to ignore this cruelty!

Also, please sign and share the petition to “Stop The Dog Meat Smuggling Trade!” Sign the petition here PLEASE.  We need to convince Thailand’s prime minister and head of hte NCPO (National Council for Peace & Order) General Prayuth Chan-ocha to step up and realize this is hurting not only the animals caught in this mess, but also the minds ands happiness of people that suffer seeing and knowing these terrible things are happening.
