Susan Sarandon: Don't Support The Barbaric Heifer Project

by ARC Thursday, May. 22, 2014 at 3:28 PM

Heifer International separates terrorized baby animals from their mothers and environments to be shipped overseas to lives of slavery and slaughter.

Susan Sarandon: Don'...

Susan Sarandon is a great lady, with tremendous courage, great talent,
and deep compassion. She has publicly opposed violent and illegal US wars
and barbaric state executions, has lent her name to many campaigns
to lift people from poverty.

This is a public request, Susan, that you end your tv and other
public service spots for Heifer International, a group which separates terrorized baby animals from their mothers and environments to be shipped overseas
to lives of slavery and slaughter. Heifer's legal kidnapping puts prices on the 'heads' of these animals in the internet auction market. Heifer International
promotes the hunger you are trying to end by using acreage
for the least efficent 'food', the flesh of murdered animals. Meat and milk produce the fewest pounds of food per acre. Tree fruit produces the most, as many as 450,000 or more pounds per acre as compared to 100 to 1000 lbs an acre for cow cadavers.

Meat and dairy products cause cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's, kidney disease, food poisoning, arthritis and many other lethal conditions. Animal flesh contains homocysteine, correlated to Alzheimer's, uric acid which causes arthritis and kidney disease, animal fat which causes strokes and heart attacks, a number of carcinogens, etc. etc.

Cattle and sheep ranchers and their subsidizing governments
in the US, Canada, New Zealand,
Australia, Brazil, Argentina and many other countries,
according to myriad sources including a UN environmental
group awarded a Nobel Prize, have increased the global
baking in summer and freezing in winter through the harmful
effects of grazing in prevent reforestation.

The African and Asian populations have lactose intolerance,
a natural state which is destroyed by eating or drinking
the milk, cheese, and eggs of captive animals. Cows' milk
adds to obesity, since it is designed to make a small calf
into a 1000 pound animal in a few months.

A Poem by Wm Henry Davies:who died in 1940

Sheep

When I was once in Baltimore
A man came up to me and cried,
"Come, I have eighteen hundred sheep,
And we will sail on Tuesday's tide.

If you will sail with me, young man,
I'll pay you fifty shillings down;
These eighteen hundred sheep I take
From Baltimore to Glasgow town."

He paid me fifty shillings down,
I sailed with eighteen hundred sheep;
We soon had cleared the harbour's mouth,
We soon were in the salt sea deep.

The first night we were out at sea
Those sheep were quiet in their mind;
The second night they cried with fear -
They smelt no pastures in the wind.

They sniffed poor things for their green fields,
They cried so loud I could not sleep:
For fifty thousand shillings down
I would not sail again with sheep.
