Former CitiBank Exec Australian Philip Wollen Says Take Animals Off Our Menus
12 Jul 2012
"Meat is killing animals, killing us, killing the planet"
Quotes By Australian Philip Wollen:



Poor countries sell their grain to rich countries to feed to livestock while their own chidlren go hungry and die in their arms.

There are 600 million vegetarians in the world. (Others place the number at over a billion)

Our axis of evil runs through our dinner tables, our weapons of mass destruction are our knives and forks.

Meat is like 1 and 2 cent coins, costing more to make than it's worth.

If slaughterhouses had walls we wouldn't be having this debate

Please vote tonight for those who have no voice

(slaughterhouses and factory farms) Ignoble gulags of despair where animals scream, their tendons slashed, their eyes stabbed out.

(In the ocean) a dying mother whale, harpoon exploded into her brain as she cries out to her calf

When we suffer we suffer as equals

Meat is more murderous than tobacco

Water is the new oil. Nations will soon go to war for it. Aquifers which took millions of years to form are going dry.

90% of small fish are ground up into pellets and given to vegetarian cows (who are forcibly made) the world’s largest ocean predators

Bouncing baby chicks Are ground up alive simply because they are male

7 billion people torture and kill 2 billion sentient beings every week

If any other organism did this a biologist would call them a virus

Every morsel of meat we eat is slapping the face of a tearstained child

By 2048 all our fisheries will be dead

We are facing the perfect storm We murder animals at our peril.

Those ghastly guantanamos we call factory farms or slaughterhouses

Scientists at Cornell say the amount of healthy meat in a diet is precisely zero.
