BANGKOK, THAILAND: The orangutans, wearing garish shorts and boxing gloves trade punches in a boxing ring at a theme park in Bangkok, Thailand. This horrifying footage show cheering tourists drawn to the barbaric sport at a theme park in Thailand. While an orangutan pretends to be knocked out of the boxing ring, others, dressed in bikinis are trained to pick up litter from the stage at the end of the show. The apes kick-box each other as a spectacle for the tourists in shows that last more than 30 minutes, before being returned to their dark cages. Animal campaigners say the apes - weighing up to 250lbs - could do themselves serious damage in the boxing ring. They warn that it is hastening the end of the orang-utan - which experts say will be extinct in the wild in only few years.

RONAL BARBAREN – kan en vatpik redde verden? Ronal er en selvværdsramt, ung barbar, der – stik modsat sine muskuløse og olie-indsmurte stammefæller i landsbyen – desværre er en vaskeægte slapsvans. Skæbnen vil dog, at barbarernes overlevelse kommer til at hvile på Ronals spinkle skuldre, da ondskabens fyrste, Volcazar bortfører hver eneste levende barbar – på nær Ronal. Derfor må Ronal begive sig ud på en farefuld rejse for at redde sine forsvundne landsbyfæller og stoppe Volcazars jagt på verdensherredømmet. Undervejs få han følgeskab af den buttede skjald, Alibert, den smukke, men dødsensfarlige skjoldmø, Zandra, og den metroseksuelle elver-vejviser, Elric. I kampen mod ondskaben må gruppen overkomme utrolige strabadser i en verden befolket af højrøvede elvere, bimbo-amazoner og piercede orker i læderchaps og G-streng. "Ronal Barbaren" produceres af Einstein Film, et nystartet produktionsselskab bestående af de tre instruktører selv og producer Trine Heidegaard. Holdet har selv skrevet manuskript. De har tidligere haft stor succes med både ”Terkel i knibe” og ”Rejsen til Saturn”, hvor de stod bag både film og lancering.

*******SupremeMasterTV**** – World Vegan, World Peace: A Conscious Choice - P4/10 Chicago, Illinois, USA August 11, 2001. Episode: 1813, Air Date: 1 September 2011. Commissioner Horton (f): Now,my next question. The United States is facing a huge budget deficit, and the government is considering cutting Medicare cost as a part of the solution to reduce the budget deficit. Supreme Master Ching Hai: No,no. Commissioner Horton (f): Some people oppose the reduction of the Medicare program. Earlier there had been a heated debate on the healthcare reform as well,in the United States. It seems most of the people have already focused their attention on medical treatment. How can we change people's thinking to live in a way to prevent us from getting sick, rather than treat our health after we get sick? Supreme Master Ching Hai: That's it,that's it, Madam Commissioner. You're right. Prevention. That is very crucial for people to know. Commissioner Horton (f): That's right. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Prevention is better than cure,and it saves a lot of money, then the government doesn't even need to cut because we will not spend so much on healthcare anymore, if people have gone vegan. And if you turn vegan, (Commissioner Horton (f): That's right.) you live healthy immediately. It has been proven through clinical research and medical proof, exams. We should have the governments and responsible authorities refer people to the right information and to propagate a healthier lifestyle for the benefit of humans as well as the planet. The governments can do a whole lot by giving people references through newspapers, broadcasting television, radio,and using networks such as the media or internet to share valuable information about the preventive way to living a long and healthy life; and in making use of this power of the media, I again congratulate the Commissioner and Mrs. Sherry Avila for their television shows that help people to become more aware of the environment and their health so that they can directly improve their own circumstances. Similarly,all government leaders can also share the medical research that clearly highlight the benefits of a healthy vegan diet. We know now through science that the vegan diet can reverse and eliminate (Commissioner Horton (f): That's right.) all types of disease, even cancers,diabetes, and heart diseases etc. It means reversed immediately in many cases. People just stop having heart attacks or heart problem; as soon as they turn vegan, the heart problem stops. (Commissioner Horton (f): They go away.) It's just like a miracle. It's no miracle. Yes. We just have to eat scientifically. We don't put poison into our body and expect it to run well, just like we don't put water in the car to replace petrol, or mix it with petrol, then of course our car will have problems. This is all like engine, car: we have to treat it nicely,wisely,scientifically. The government can also collaborate with forward-thinking professional organizations, such as the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, based in Washington D. C., the capital - they live next door; the government should discuss with them- whose members promote a vegan diet as effective, proven preventive medicine. You can ask them for all the proof you need. Staying healthy is everyone's dream, but we have to do it. Don't just dream about it, not just talk about it: make it happen! Yes,make it happen. Go about to put back health into our body. So you are absolutely right, Commissioner Horton, people have to know that, not only our health but our planet's future depends on it. The government is in the right position and has the right power to start connecting people to these resources. Thank you,Madam. I get all excited when it comes to people's health and happiness, because it's right there in front of our eyes. Everyone can be healthy and happy. Why don't we just do it, you know? I'm just so excited,because it's so easy. Why do people have to suffer? Lack of information, wrong lobby, wrong advocate. Please turn around. Help people to stay healthy and happy, then the country grows also strong. The country will grow strong if you have strong people,healthy people. Thank you,ma'am. Commissioner Horton (f): Thank you. Thank you. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Start from Chicago. Commissioner Horton (f): And I will continue to take this message forward. Thank you and everyone here who has been a great example. Thank you, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for sharing your thoughts. (Supreme Master Ching Hai: God bless you.) And they will forever be in my heart. And I love you. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Thank you. God loves you. It's easy to love you. Commissioner Avila (m): And now Supreme Master Ching Hai, my lovely wife has a question to ask,also. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes,ma'am. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): Good evening. Supreme Master Ching Hai: The better half. Good evening, Madam Sherry. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): I just wanted to start off with saying that I probably started being a vegan when I was about 10 years old, and the teacher said 『Make sure there's a green and yellow vegetable on the plate,』 and I went home and told my mother that, and my mother was very like,『What?!』 But since then,now my vegetables are green, yellow,red, and all the colors of the rainbow probably, but I know that I feel better when I eat a lot of vegetables,(Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes.) and follow the diet, and I know that I sing better - for anybody out there who is a singer, keep that in mind - and I know that my overall well-being, psychologically,is better. Supreme Master Ching Hai: (Yes.) Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): There are just so many wonderful,honestly, benefits from eating vegan that it's just endless almost. So I just wanted to share that before I begin my question. Supreme Master Ching Hai: You are a good example - your skin looks good, your eyes sparkling, and your hair is full. Good example,Madam. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): Thank you,thank you. Supreme Master Ching Hai: You've been vegan all this time? Can we hear you singing later on? Short,maybe? Or maybe now even? Commissioner Avila (m): She is a good singer - she loves the Irish songs, and I love the Irish songs also. (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes.) Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): Well we're going to have some wonderful singers here that it will be fun to hear. So… Supreme Master Ching Hai: No but it's different - you and him sing one short song - it's just a minute. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): Let's get on with the question. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Okay ma'am. You're too modest,yes. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): So I think the bottom line here is for everybody - we all want to be healthy. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): That's the bottom line. (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Sure. Sure.) And your words that you shared made a big difference, will make a big difference - now even as we speak, and as Patricia said, go forward. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): I was particularly touched by the poem, 『Please Don't!』 from your poetry book, 『The Love of Centuries.』 (Supreme Master Ching Hai: It's a long one.) I have a personal connection to that poem, because my father served in the Philippines during World War II and I got to know a combination of the sufferings that he suffered there and continued to suffer even here,when he was back in the United States. Supreme Master Ching Hai: I'm so sorry. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): In your poem 『Please Don't!』 you portray how war is against human nature, (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Right.) which I truly believe. I would like to read a few words from that poem, and so I am going to read those now. Please don't go! Leaving an elderly mother and innocent siblings There's no real hatred among us human beings. Battlefields have but guns, swords and hostilities While here a warm house welcomes your company. Please don't go! Wreaking suffering on others There's no real animosity, only thirst for power Countless corpses lie shriveled to expand an empire Whereas here only love, peace and safety thrive. Taking lives,we'll have to pay with our own How can we rejoice in causing demise and separation? Only boundless, lasting compassion Shall make us great among all creation… This is very emotional to me. (Supreme Master Ching Hai: I see.) There are many conflicts in the world right now as we all know (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes.) and the words of this poem speak very strongly about our current time. How can we make people understand that war is not the solution to conflicts? Can you explain the best ways for countries to protect their uniqueness,spiritual and moral values,and material possessions? Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes,yes,ma'am. Thank you,Mrs. Avila, for your genuine concern for the people in turmoil right now. Thank you. Yes,I also feel a little emotional. The poem was written… the way I felt in my heart. If I could just kneel all day all night begging the world to stop the war and if that would help, I would do it, because I also, like yourself,I also experienced firsthand the suffering of the people during the war, yes - I was born in Âu Lạc (Vietnam) as you know. Right. We call ourselves civilized society, we are in the 21st century now and we have developed all kinds of techniques and technological inventions, and we call ourselves advanced,developed, and we do,kind of, look down upon the Stone Age humans as barbarous warlike creatures, who made all grounds their hunting grounds and would kill each other for woman,man love rival,food, water or territories,etc. We should question ourselves: 『What age are we in now?』 and 『Why we are acting like in Stone Age in some areas?』 I am sorry for your personal pain and may God bless your father and all the victims of war,soldiers and civilians alike. The best way for all the countries to preserve themselves is by helping fellow nations to grow and develop - not by war,not by killing or destroying humans, fellow humans, causing so much loss, pain and suffering on all levels as you know it. The United States policy has many good points, mind you,like respecting and welcoming the talented, the brainy people, the genuine,good humans, the experts,and the spiritual genuines; also expanding the land state by state with peaceful means; that's why your country expanded now. In the East,the ancient political strategy has always been to control the nearby nations and to befriend the faraway lands. So countries in the East,for example,have always expanded and prospered, despite occasional periods of setback. Mind you,I have to tell you this strategy originated from China, since ancient times. They want to always,like, conquer the neighbors and befriend the faraway lands. Actually,the policy has some good logical point - not the invasion part - but the part that you have to be strong, yourselves,your nation,has to be strong, because the neighboring countries would not ire your nation if you are powerful and strong, naturally. So for peace sake, that is,to protect our land and people, we should be strong. Maybe we should have muscle - so to say - to ward off invasion, but to engage in war with faraway lands would be costly, too costly,as you know it, and difficult due to distance. This the what ancient strategists already knew - it's all written in the war and peace strategy of Chinese policy. If you don't believe me, you can read it. It's called 『Sun Tzu Ping Fa,』means the military strategy of Master Sun. It's very famous,okay? If we engage in war with a faraway land… Even nowadays we have airplanes and all that, distance doesn't mean much,but still it's very costly,and the supply is difficult and lacking in the military, or food or familiar nutrition for the soldiers; the unfamiliar surroundings, the different languages and backgrounds, the traditions and climates etc.,the soldiers cannot be used to. Soldiers will be more fatigued because of all that: less confident, more fearful, more vulnerable and lacking morale, while the so-called enemies are in their own elements, knowing their steps, knowing every corner of their countries and can be more in control of all combat advantages. It would be even better - I would say the best - of course,if we do not so-called control the neighboring nations by force,but instead offer benevolent assistance in all near and far corners of the world. We should use our power and financial privilege to extend humanitarian rather than military help or even aggressive action to those weaker and developing nations. Then enemies would fade. You see,Abraham Lincoln, what did he say? 『I destroy my enemies by making them my friends.』 Even your past president knew these lessons. The enemies then would fade. Peace would be possible and the global economy will stabilize and bloom, and soon all nations will enjoy the same prosperity and peace,dignity and freedom as family members of the human race. The people in the world will respect and cooperate with each other, or with the powerful nations,not out of fear of strong military force, but out of respect and love for any country, however strong and rich, because from their hearts they love and respect this country and the government that's offering them help. Meanwhile, these countries can all develop in their own space and time while preserving their traditions and protecting moral values, and the country who helps,you see, also profits because they will not have to spend so much money in war. And we can learn from each other: no matter how developed or underdeveloped the country,we always have something to offer; and the helping hands will also receive manifold benefits, from economy to peace, from happiness to Heaven's blessing. And since charity begins at home,I would like to say that I appreciate your many endeavors in your own community to help it flourish and develop,such as through your church or by introducing people to cultural beauty at one of your local art museums and the Irish American Heritage Center, and before that as a Girl Scouts leader yourself. With gentle,wholesome vegan teachers as yourself who make positive impacts, we could have a more peaceful world. We should have more people like you. Thanks again,Mrs. Avila. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): Thank you. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Ma chérie. Thank you,ma chérie. That is the French for 『My darling.』 Your name,Sherry, is similar to 『ma chérie』 in French. (Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): Yes. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Okay.) Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): I just went to a cross-cultural, cross-racial seminar last Saturday. And it was brought up that through love that would help us to try to understand each other better. It was a very interesting seminar- cross-cultural, cross-racial, through the church. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes,I hope there are more activities and more people like you who really get down to work with the people, not just sit and talk. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): Well, when I came back home to the church and I said to the congregation that I attended this cross-cultural, cross-racial seminar, 『I think some of you would like to go to this,』 several people came up to me and they said they would like to go to this. (Supreme Master Ching Hai: See?) So I think that when the opportunity is there, there are others out there who are open and willing,ready to learn, so… (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Right.) and I actually have your poetry book with me. This is 『The Love of Centuries.』 Frank and I really love the book, both the illustrations in it as well as the words in it and the variety of poetry that's in it and so I have another poem. Supreme Master Ching Hai: I'm glad you like it. Another poem? Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): And so I'm going to read the touching poem. Supreme Master Ching Hai: You're really a poem lover,aren't you? Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): Yes,yes. My daughter was the founder of the poetry club in high school. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Really? Wow, she takes it from whom? Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): So this particular touching poem, which is actually an environmental poem, (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes.) is 『Please Wake Up!』 And as I said,it's from 『The Love of Centuries.』 O world, wake up and behold Rivers and mountains are in tumult Burnt forests,eroded hills, desiccated streams Whither do the poor souls go in the end of all dreams? O heart, relent your sobbing For my soul to rest in long nights Tears dried up and I'm wordless Weeping in pain for the tormented! O night,please kindle your source of light Shine the way for those human souls in darkness Be serene for my mind to still And enter emptiness with the miraculous celestial melody. O day, stir not sudden unrests For peace to repose in our very hearts For humankind's struggles to subside For the true Self to gloriously shine. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): So I was particular touched by that poem because it is an environmental poem and we have become very actively involved in the environment. And so,that inspired my husband and me to continue to help people to renew our planet, and although the world is lively and advanced, many of us did not realize that we were asleep. I think when Frank and I go to some of these conferences and we find out more and more about the toxins and the pesticides and so forth,we realize that we're definitely asleep. How did we come to this slumber? That's the question, I guess. What are some of the ways to awaken people? Will we ever know our 『True Self』 in order for it to 『gloriously shine』 as your poem states? Thank you, Supreme Master. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Thank you,Madam. I have something to tell you,which I did not tell anyone before. When I read that poetry together with the 『Please Don't! 』 I was very,very in a physical bad shape. I thought that was the last thing I'd ever tell the world - in these poems. It was really all my heart and soul in there, and I was crying when I wrote it. And I was crying when I read it. I thought that was the last time I'd ever tell the world anything. I thought I was going to say goodbye to the world. That was a kind of a goodbye poem as well. But Heaven wants me to continue to stay in this world for a while longer, so that's probably why it touched you so much, because… It's even translated, it's not as original as in the Vietnamese (Aulacese) which is even more stirring,for me at least. So anyway,I am glad that it touched you. Maybe it has touched some other people as well and maybe it will remind them to do something for themselves and for the planet, something more positive, more constructive. I thought that was the last speech I'd ever make,in poem,yes. But I'm still here, thanks to God and Heaven. They told me, 『No,no,you stay.』 Okay. Well,Madam, to know the True Self for it to gloriously shine through,there are only two things to do. We are already God-like, we're already the children of God, and the children have similar quality to the parents, we all know that, even physically. Children are from parents, we are the children from God,so we are God. At least we're God's children, God's offspring. So to know our True Self, to know the meaning the Kingdom of God, is very easy. That's just to go back to our Origin,to turn back to where we are. Just like if your children got lost on the street, and if they found their way back home, then they're back home again,because they're already your children. There's nothing that can change that. No law,no disaster, nothing can change the fact that your daughter is Miss Avila,your daughter. You see? Yes. So if everyone told us, all the Masters of old told us,that we are the children of God, then we are the children of God! Why should Jesus lie to us about our origin? Why should Buddha tell us the untruth about our greatness? So we have to believe it. We are the children of God,no? So to go back to be the children of God again, it's so easy.

*******SupremeMasterTV**** – STOP ANIMAL CRUELTY Torturing Animals in Research: Scientifically Invalid, Morally Repugnant. Episode: 1867, Air Date: 25 October 2011. The images in the following program are highly sensitive and may be as disturbing to viewers as they were to us. However, we have to show the truth about cruelty to animals, praying that you will help to stop it. This is the Stop Animal Cruelty series on Supreme Master Television. This week we’ll hear from Michael Budkie, the vegan co-founder and executive director of the US-based non-profit organization Stop Animal Exploitation NOW, on the subject of animal experimentation. The group was established in 1996 to help put an end to animal abuse in so-called scientific research. Now let’s meet Mr. Budkie to learn more about his organization and its benevolent work. The work that we do is about the use of animals in laboratories. It’s all about animal experimentation and I first became concerned about this during my education, because I spent nine months as a student inside an animal- research facility, and actually saw animals used in experimentation and was taught how to do it. I’ve actually had animals die in my own hands, and that’s what first generated the concern that we have for this issue. There are several categories of animal testing; all equally heartless and unconscionable. Mr. Budkie tells us more. One of the kinds of animal testing or experimentation that people run into on a daily basis, whether they know it or not, is the use of animals for the testing of consumer products. Everything from laundry detergent to floor cleaner to mouthwash and toothpaste are tested on animals. Typically, these are things that are varieties of toxicity testing where, for example, in the LD50, rats and mice are literally force-fed the chemicals that make up these different products, including things like floor cleaners, until half of them die. That’s what the LD50 means. It’s the lethal dose to 50% of the animals used in the experiment. Another kind of testing that a lot of people do come in contact with also is the testing of drugs and pharmaceuticals. And this is probably the only kind of testing that is actually required by (US) law, as far as involving animals. The testing of consumer products is required. They have to do some kind of safety testing, but there is no requirement that animals are a part of that. Probably a larger and more widespread use of animals in laboratories is what takes place in colleges, in universities and a lot of other private labs, which is much more along the lines of basic science, where they purport to look at, what happens in basic physiology and how the body works. One of the real problems with this, though, is that human anatomy and physiology is very different from that of any other species. That’s why you go to a medical doctor, but dogs and cats and primates are taken to veterinarians. The animals used in these appalling experiments are commonly obtained from breeders, who produce them based on demand in conditions similar to those of puppy mills. Other sources of test animals include animal shelters, public auctions, and businesses in the animal entertainment industry like zoos and circuses. Some animals are also trapped or captured in the wild and then shipped thousands of miles in wooden crates to live nightmarish lives in laboratories. For all such sensitive, intelligent beings, living in captivity, where they’re unable to exhibit their normal behaviors and interact with family members, is utterly unbearable. Some of the best examples of the consequences of being confined in the laboratory setting are relevant to our use of non-human primates; for example, Rhesus Monkeys, Squirrel Monkeys and other species of primates. And what we’ve found is that in most instances, just the confinement in the laboratory setting is literally enough to drive these animals insane. Because if you look at the environment that they normally live in, in their natural settings in the wild; for example, a Rhesus Monkey will typically cover as much as one square mile of territory in a day in their natural setting. But when you look at the environment they’re kept in, in the laboratory, it’s a stainless steel cage which is designed primarily to be easy to clean. Also they will have only a few square feet, nine to as much as maybe 15 square feet of space in the cage, but this is a very artificial setting. There are no trees, there’s no sunlight, there’s usually no fresh air, there’s very limited if any contact with members of their own species, and non-human primates are very social animals, just like human beings are. And so, it’s very common for them to literally lose their minds as a result of this severe stress of confinement. They’ll also become self-destructive to the point where they will actually begin to rip out their own hair, they’ll bite and tear at their own flesh. In many instances, as much as one out of 10 primates in laboratories are literally missing a part of their own bodies, anything from just a section of a finger or a toe, up to an entire limb. The stress literally causes them to lose their minds. The experiments inflict excruciating pain and sheer torment on our fellow beings. All forms of toxic drugs, sickening surgical procedures, lethal diseases and horrific weapons are tested on these unsuspecting and unwilling participants. The reality is that for most animals in laboratories, at the conclusion of most experimentation, they’re killed. And in many instances, not only are they killed, but they’re actually dissected afterwards. One of the laboratories we’ve just obtained some very damning information about, the non-human primates, in many instances after the experiments are concluded, they’re actually decapitated, because their brains are dissected to look at what happens to them. In many other instances, animals are used in situations where they’re exposed to things such as chemical and biological weapons, and part of the experiment actually causes their death. One of the other very real consequences of using these animals in experimentation, as a result of the fact that they’re not required to use pain relievers or anaesthesia, is that they undergo the full consequences of diseases. They will experience the full consequences of chemical or biological weapons. They will experience the full consequences of drug addiction. These are the kinds of things that if you or I allowed them to happen to animals that were in our care in our private homes, we would be arrested for cruelty to animals. But in the laboratory setting, literally almost anything goes. In 2010 approximately 125,000 primates were imprisoned in laboratories across the US. Mr. Budkie estimates that overall 25-million animals are currently being experimented on and tortured in labs. These tests are utterly flawed and scientifically invalid as the anatomy and physiology of human beings and animals differ enormously. In fact, many drugs that supposedly pass tests with animals are actually deadly or severely harmful to humans. Time and time again, we’ve found that drugs that went through testing on animals are not safe for human beings. We only need to look at the drug Vioxx, which went for the full raft of animal testing, and when it came to the human market, was taken off the market for causing bone pain, for causing nausea and for literally killing people. A very significant percentage, in fact over, I believe it’s over 90% of the drugs that make it into pre-market testing and pre-clinical testing, and then reach clinical testing in human beings, never make it to the market, because what we keep finding out is that animals do not predict consequences and side effects of drugs in human beings, because rats and mice are not human beings in little fur coats. Even when they’re not being tested on, animals in research facilities are treated in ways that defy belief. The gentle beings are considered inanimate objects and not given the most basic physical needs such as adequate food and water, let alone veterinary care or love. It’s not uncommon for a non-human primate to be deprived of access to water for as much as 22 hours a day, five days a week. It’s not uncommon for them to be deprived of access to food for the same period of time. It’s also very common for them to be confined in devices that extremely and severely restrict their ability to move. That is a photograph of a primate restraint chair. It’s essentially a large Plexiglas box. The primate sits here. Their feet are strapped in here. There’s another section of Plexiglas which comes in from the front so that their neck is entirely enclosed. In addition to this, they very often have restraining bars that are literally bolted into the bones of their skull so that they can’t even turn their head. And they will spend hours and hours in devices like this. And to top it off, you see these metal plates down here that the feet rest on? They’re metal for a reason. In some instances, those are used to deliver electric shock to the primate’s feet. Or, if they don’t want to do that, they will add a metal clip onto the monkey’s tail and deliver electric shock there. Animal testing needs to end now. Such experiments are grossly cruel, murderous and have ready alternatives which are humane and provide bona fide, useful scientific data. There are other alternative methodologies for product testing involving everything from computer simulations to physical tests like gas chromatography and mass spectroscopy, to cell culture methods which measure the irritancy of chemicals by exposing tissue culture to them. In terms of medical testing, much of research for example this brain mapping that’s done, we can get better information about how the human brain works by using non-invasive technologies like functional MRIs. By refusing to purchase drugs or consumer products tested on animals or that use animal ingredients, and letting our lawmakers know that we want these bloody, barbaric animal experiments ended immediately, we as individuals can help make this testing a thing of the past. Mr. Michael Budkie and Stop Animal Exploitation NOW volunteers, you are to be praised for your sustained, noble efforts to stop the torture of animals and protect the voiceless. By placing the issue of animal experimentation front and center in the public consciousness, you are causing more and more people to realize every day that this heinous crime against the animals must cease right away. For more information on Stop Animal Exploitation NOW, please visit www.SAENonline**** Thank you for your company today on Stop Animal Cruelty. May humanity soon realize the divinity within all beings and live according to the law of love.

*******SupremeMasterTV**** – STOP ANIMAL CRUELTY Why Me? Unfathomable Torture Behind Fur. Episode: 1881, Air Date: 8 November 2011. The images in the following program are highly sensitive and may be as disturbing to viewers as they were to us. However, we have to show the truth about cruelty to animals, praying that you will help to stop it. This is the Stop Animal Cruelty series on Supreme Master Television. This week’s program features excerpts from a short documentary by Mark Rissi, a film producer and the communications officer for Swiss Animal Protection, an umbrella organization comprised of 69 animal-welfare groups from Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein. For 150 years Swiss Animal Protection has been at the forefront of animal advocacy, speaking for and defending our defenseless fellow beings. By conducting public awareness campaigns and working to enact animal-welfare laws, Swiss Animal Protection has prevented the suffering of countless numbers of our animal co-inhabitants. One area of special concern for the noble organization is the gruesome fur trade, much of which is conducted in China. Eighty-five percent of fur used in the fur industry is produced on horrible, filthy, utterly inhumane fur farms, where thousands of wild animals are imprisoned in tiny, barren cages. Approximately 100 million animals are in fur factory farms worldwide. Mink, Raccoon Dogs, Red and Arctic Foxes and Rex Rabbits are just some of the many animal species kept under absolutely appalling conditions. Having no social interaction or mental stimulation, the animals, which are used to roaming great distances in their native habitats, become immensely frustrated and go insane. In addition, inadequate food, water and shelter from extreme weather conditions causes agony to the helpless beings, often leading to horrific injuries and disease. What’s even more unbelievable is the manner in which these innocent ones are killed. In 2005, a group of Swiss Animal Protection investigators traveled to China to uncover the truth about how fur is produced, and what they discovered is truly shocking. The following documentary film, entitled “Fun Fur?” is based on the group’s findings and provides insights into the abhorrent fur trade. Is it real or is it fake fur? The (fur)industry calls it “fun fur.” In the last few years China has become the world’s largest exporter of fur clothing and according to the industry sources, the biggest fur production and processing base in the world. It is also a country without any legal provisions for animal welfare; and correspondingly, it has a poor track record. We have an animal wildlife protection law just to protect rare animals, rare species which have economic value. We treat them as natural resources; but we don’t have any protection or welfare laws about animals. The Chinese law, wildlife protection law, doesn’t protect wildlife in captivity. It only protects wildlife in the wild. And the law only protects against actions causing death to wild animals in the wild. But if you torture an animal, short of death, you are not prosecutable. Chinese customs statistics indicate a net volume of fur exports of nearly US$2 billion in 2004, and Zhang Shuhua, deputy chairman of the China Leather Industry Association, told reporters that fur exports were up 123% year over year from 2003. More than 95% of fur clothing produced in China is sold to overseas markets, exported to Europe, the US, Russia and Japan. According to the Sandy Parker report, China exported a staggering US$1.2 million in fur trimmings to the US in the month of January 2005 alone. Our team set out to examine the situation on location. We chose Hebei Province, as this province plays a major role in the retail market. Many small companies take part in the processing of fur. On the streets of Liou Shih and Shangcun, you find people washing pelts, stretching or drying them. The pelts are dyed, sheared, or even knitted, and the consequences to the environment are grave. Environmental protection regulations are minimal in China. Highly toxic chemicals are used to tan or color the pelts. Because of the lack of stringent legislation, many western countries are exporting their pelts to be processed in China. Our investigators went to document various fur farms in the Hebei Province. What they found would shock even the most seasoned observers. They uncovered and documented unimaginable acts of systematic brutality and animal cruelty on a colossal scale. A Chinese fox farm. The animals are kept in single battery cages on a surface of just 54 square centimeters. There are no objects to play with. One cage row is located right next to the other. Our film team visited various farms containing between 500 and 6000 animals. A farm with raccoon dogs. China breeds and raises approximately 1.5 million raccoon dogs per year for the fur industry. Raccoon dogs have great difficulty moving on the wire mesh floor. Large mink farms have been constructed in China as well. Scandinavian breeders have sold live breeding stock to their Chinese colleagues. Mink live near the water; they are very active and curious animals. But in these narrow cages they develop extreme stereotype behavior. As a consequence of the fur boom, many farmers have opened up a fur farm in their backyard. China is the second largest producer of fox pelts. The Chinese fur industry breeds approximately 1.5 million foxes each year. Again, the monotony of the cages leads to stereotype behavior. Natural ground is lacking. They try to flee but never succeed. Foxes on the whole are frightened of humans and that causes some welfare problems. So it’s not just it’s a matter of adapting to the environment in which they are kept, but also to the contact with humans. And for foxes in particular, there is a problem of having a lot of foxes close together. It’s very frightening for a fox to be very close to other foxes. Foxes communicate with scent. They use gland secretions and urine marks to signal occupancy of a territory. In the farms, they are forced to live above or near the excrement of row upon row of their peers. Our investigators also found caged dogs in these backyard farms. In the fall or winter, the animals are taken out of their cages. The workers use a capturing pole with a noose at the end. They then grab the animal by the tail or the hind legs. Animals are slaughtered adjacent to wholesale markets or farmers bring them for sale. To get there, animals are often transported over large distances and under terrible conditions. After the buyers agree on the price, the farmers grab the animals, in this case it’s a raccoon dog, and slam them head first against the ground. This is intended to stun the animal. The raccoon dogs struggle or convulse, then lie trembling or barely moving. Next, the dogs are taken to the adjacent slaughter area, where unfortunately for them, these same animals regain consciousness. So, they are clubbed repeatedly on their head with a wooden rod. This method is used in order to avoid damaging the fur. After a short interval, the same animals regain consciousness a third time. Specialists start the skinning procedure while the animals are still alive. Skinning begins with a knife at the rear. Then the raccoon dog is hung upside down by its hind legs from a hook. Starting from the hind legs the worker wrenches the animal’s skin from its suspended body until it comes off over the head. Our investigators were able to observe and document that a significant number of animals remain fully conscious during the skinning process. Even after their skin has been stripped off, breathing, heartbeat, directional body movement and eyelid movement are evident for between 5 and 10 minutes. Time after time our investigators found animals panting and blinking or fighting back as they were skinned alive. This fox had to endure the horrific procedure for six minutes before he was finally choked to death by the butcher stepping on his neck. Please keep these images in mind the next time you are tempted to buy a coat with fur trim. And don’t be deceived by labels, since raw fur pelts often move through international auctions before being sewn in other countries. Fur from China may also end up on a final product that says “Made in Italy” or “Made in France.” Buying anything with fur, even if it is just trim, supports one of the most gruesome industries on the planet. This documentary deals with the 85% of fur-trade animals raised on farms; the remaining 15% are obtained through trapping and hunting in the wild. In trapping, metal traps with razor-sharp teeth are used to capture the animals, who invariably sustain ghastly injuries. Moreover, many non-target animals such as dogs and cats and even children inadvertently fall prey to these vicious devices. However, there’s a way that these cruel, sickening practices can be stopped. Like all businesses, the fur trade exists solely because it is profitable, but if people become informed about the barbaric methods used to obtain fur and refuse to buy fur clothing and accessories, the trade will cease. So please inform your friends and loved ones about the immense cruelty behind fur and avoid purchasing jackets, boots and other items containing fur. Faux fur is an excellent alternative and involves no killing. Swiss Animal Protection and Mr. Mark Rissi we thank you for allowing us to air your important documentary and all your benevolent efforts to protect animals.

(Image source: BBC News) BY NATHAN BYRNE A gunman. On a scooter. Police say he’s targeting ethnic groups. Four dead this time at a Jewish school in southern France. Reporters for the BBC and euronews describe a scene that’s been repeated three times in 10 days. “This is the same method that was used on Thursday when three soldiers were shot outside their barracks just north of Toulouse, and they were of ethnic origin.” “ … another serviceman was gunned down in Toulouse in similar circumstances by an attacker on a motorbike. Prosecutors have said the incidents may be linked and that an anti-terrorism investigation has been opened.” On NBC’s Today, Matt Lauer brought up the fact that motorbikes are a pretty common form of transportation in France and questioned the targeted-groups theory. MATT LAUER: “Are there any other similarities in the crime? On the one hand, you’ve got soldiers, on the other hand you have students.” MICHELLE KOSINSKI: “They think the caliber may have been the same of the weapon in this shooting today involving the schoolchildren.” The Telegraph reports — the head of the Jewish students union of France said, quote, “anti-Semetic and racist speech has created a climate of insecurity for Jews in France.” A foreign ministry spokesman for Israel tells RT the country is horrified by the act of barbarism, but he’s confident French authorities will, quote, “shed full light on this tragedy and bring the perpetrators of these murders to justice.” Meanwhile, the attention on these killings could also have political implications. CNN’s senior international correspondent explains. “ … this comes in the middle of the presidential campaign here. So, President Sarkozy is on his way down to Toulouse this morning. ... Socialist candidate Francois Hollande is also headed for Toulouse this morning … ” According to Al Jazeera, France has Europe’s largest Jewish community — at nearly 700,000 people.
