What Does Justice Look Like To You?

Yesterday saw two simultaneous protests take place in Sydney and Canberra with participants demanding ‘justice’ for the pigs from Wally’s Piggery, and claiming that the RSPCA has blood on it’s hands due to the dropping of charges against WSL Investments Pty Ltd, Wally Perenc and Stefanie Perenc (referred to as  Wally’s Piggery).

Despite RSPCA NSW putting out two separate statements on the matter, they have fallen on deaf ears, and mob rule has now taken the place of natural justice.

Let Those Without Sin Cast The First Stone

[GARD]What appeared to be one of the most ironic moments of both protests was the crowd listening to words from Chris Delforce in Canberra, and Mark Pearson in NSW. Two people who probably have more blood on their hands than anyone else involved in this whole sorry saga.

Both of these people belong to organisations that were responsible for taking the footage, or releasing it to the media, or both. This hardly makes them qualified enough to pass judgement on the actions or inactions of RSPCA NSW. Especially considering that it was their actions that have lead us to where we are now.

We also seem to be forgetting that Mark Pearson was the one who was advocating that more slaughterhouses be built while campaigning for a Senate seat as part of the Animal Justice Party.

Any speech given by them, no matter how passionate, has only been done to shift the focus away from the part that they played, and attempt to absolve them of any guilt.

Why Can’t I Eat Backyard Eggs?

A question that seems to be routinely asked in different ‘vegan’ groups is, “is it ok for a vegan to eat backyard eggs from their ‘rescued’ chickens?”

Like everything that happens within a group of people, there are some who believe that it is ok, and there are others who say that it isn’t.

With the consumption of those eggs being justified in all sorts of ways, the reality of the matter is that if you identify yourself as a vegan, then using those eggs is something that you shouldn’t be doing.

Why Can’t I Eat Backyard Eggs?

Eggs from backyard chickens shoulldn”t be consumed by vegans for a number of reasons, aside from them being an animal product, some of which are as follows:
# They are not ours to be consumed.
# Just because an egg is there, that doesn’t mean we can take it to use as we see fit
# If the hen says to you ‘please take my egg and do as you wish” by all means do what you want with them. Until then, don’t.
# By consuming eggs, even backyard ones, you are telling others that it is ok to consume eggs, so long as the hens are treated in a way that you are comfortable with.
# There is a level of cruelty involved even with keeping ‘rescued’ hens in your backyard, regardless of whether the eggs are consumed or not.

Cruelty?
