eating animals : the consequences


 
Animals Australia

Annamaria — please take a day off. You deserve it. Take a day off from worries, from bad hair, traffic jams, and particularly, from annoying TV ads…Speaking of ads — it’s hard not to notice that Meat & Livestock Australia has hijacked Australia Day! Strewth — any visiting tourist would think that Sam Kekovich is the father of Australia and that it’s a local tradition to lob a little lamb on the barbie to prove how Australian you are! Crikey — it’s just a multimillion dollar marketing campaign to sell more lamb!

We thought Straya (‘Australia’ for our overseas friends) was all about a fair go for all; about sticking up for the undersheepdog; and above all, about looking out for our mates (four legged mates included of course).

Help us take back Australia Day in the true Aussie spirit — a day when EVERYONE deserves a day off…

This Australia Day, EVERYONE deserves a day off!

Okay, so we’re ‘taking the piss’ (a bit). But really, MLA’s campaign to urge Aussies to eat more animals should be no laughing matter. Apart from the fact that lambs are so super cute, Australians are facing a rising obesity and heart disease epidemic — conditions linked to the over consumption of animal products. Our planet’s health is suffering too. This month we sweltered through the hottest day on record — all the while our pollies conveniently ignored the fact that farming animals for food is creating more climate-warming greenhouse gasses than all of the world’s planes, trains and automobiles combined.

It’s enough to send you bonkers!

So this Australia Day, we’re calling on all true-blue Aussies to help animals, our health, and our planet — by throwing some cruelty-free tucker on the barbie. Because being Australian is more than just abbreviating all your words with the letter ‘o’. Bloody oath. It’s about taking a stand. Doing what’s right. And hosting a BBQ that will be the envy of all your neighbours. Click here and we’ll show you how!

Whatever you get up to on your day off, we wish you a happy, safe, rip-snorter of a day.

Cheers, from your mates at Animals Australia.

P.S. We need your help to spread the word that animals deserve a day off too. It’s easy. Tell your folks. Tell your mates. Share this funny video on Facebook and Twitter. Forget John Farnham — this year, YOU’RE the voice!
