Waikato Stockyard
Late 2007 - an investigation at Morinsville (Waikato) Stockyards uncovered typical conditions. Emaciated steers and cows were found in over-crowed, filthy conditions. Animals that could not stand (the industry refers to them as downers) were hit with sticks and had their tails yanked until they stood. Investigators witnessed downer animals trampled and stood on for long periods of time by other animals that were unable to move away due to the crowded conditions. Animals stood for hours under hot sun with no shelter or water provided. Images courtesy of Meat Free Media and Open Rescue

First of all, I never claimed that every single cow in the photo was a dairy cow. What I did claim is that this is where many dairy cows go before they're sold to slaughter or other 'farmers'.

No one is saying that we should stop working on human rights to achieve animal rights. I see all exploitation as very intertwined and recognising animal rights also means recognising human rights. There's no reason a vegan can't still be an advocate for human rights, in fact heaps of vegans spend their time advocating for human rights.

Some people have said to me that they don't have enought time to recognise animal rights, because human rights activities take up all their time. If you have enough time to eat or buy animal products, then you have enought time to eat or buy the vegan alternatives. Recognising animal rights is simply a matter of picking up a bottle of soymilk instead of a bottle of cows milk., or picking up canvas shoes instead of leather shoes.
