I’m 17, currently studying at school to complete my HSC. I recently came across a video called Earthlings, and with all the commotion about the Kony issue, I thought it important to start getting involved in a cause that I hold close to my heart.
After watching the video I realised that it is not only the food industry that is involved in cruel and torturous activities performed against animals, but also sporting and even pet production. I want this letter to raise awareness for these living beings that cannot speak for themselves and are being inhumanely mistreated.
So please, I urge you to keep up coverage of the inhumanity that is so constant in animal-based industries, and show our nation the inconvenient truth that so many, like I was, are aware of but still ignore.
The issue of animal cruelty is pressing because it causes so much heartache to know what these innocent creatures are being subject to. I hope you take my plea into consideration and continue to keep up awareness of the wrongdoings that are taking place in Australia and nations across the globe.
