We are Anonymous.
And some of us are currently designing, organizing and starting a new Worldwide Operation.
The Operation is:
---#OP ANIMAL CRUELTY---
The Modern Animal Farming and Exploitation Industries and Businesses are now know to be the greatest agents of environmental destruction in the world.
These Industries and Businesses are responsible for: The biggest contribution to green-house-gas emissions, being therefore the leading cause of global warming;
The largest contribution to Deforestation, Destruction of Rain Forests and other Natural Habitats; Industrial Over-Fishing and the origin of
Ocean Dead-Zones; Incalculable Pollution of Rivers, Oceans and Soils by the use of Agro-Chemicals and animal waste; Total Disregard for Animal Welfare,
abusive and poorly-regulated Treatment, Incarceration, and Slaughter of billions of Animals, Dissemination of propaganda in favor of the consumption of
animal food products known to be causes of major health disorders like: Cancer, Hearth Attacks, Obesity and Diabetes just to name a few, even in places
like schools and hospitals; Financing and contributing to the widespread use of Disease-Causing Fertilizers and Pesticides for food crops, and Growth
Hormones, Antibiotics and other drugs for farm animals; Vicious legal and illegal attacks against Activists/Citizens who expressed their opinions against
the Industry or recorded footage of their practices.
We deeply believe that such Destructive Industries and Businesses, SHOULD NOT and WILL NOT remain unpunished after all these violations have been committed.
Governments and other representatives have, for a long time been compliant and passive before these powerful Industries, while they turned their blind eye
to the Animal Farming's unethical actions.
So, WE, the People, WILL MAKE SURE OUR VOICE IS HEARD in this matter. We will raise awareness, and make sure that EVERYONE is well informed about the
reality of the practices done by the Modern Animal Farming and Exploitation Industries.
And we will Protest, we will Express ourselves, we will Demonstrate and we Will make a Change.
We want these entities to take responsibility for their Crimes against Nature and against Humanity.
We want to face Corporations and Governments and say THAT'S ENOUGH. YOUR ACTIONS HAVE GONE TOO FAR AND GO AGAINST WHAT WE BELIEVE TO BE THE MORALLY AND ETHICALLY CORRECT.
The amount of pain, suffering and destruction caused by these Irresponsible Businesses must end.
WE WILL NOT REMAIN PASSIVE.
So, This is an invitation.
An invitation for you to Join #OperationAnimalCruelty.
The Operation's Objectives are the following:

direct actions: Raids/Protests/Demonstration/Performances/Letters to representatives and Online through sharing of Video Footage/Documentaries/Articles/Studies/Webpages/
/Signature Collections/Fund Raising/E-mailing and Writing Complaints and Reports, to official entities and representatives.
-Educate all generations on the consequences of supporting financially the Modern Animal Farming and Exploitation Industries and inform everyone about:

endangerment of wild species, desertification, global warming and releasing of methane emissions, incalculable pollution of waters and soils,
and millions of people starving because of the Industry's ineficiency and the poor distribution and waste of huge amounts of cereals, land, water and other resources.

-Open discussions about the Ethics and Moral Grounds of Animal Experimentation by the Cosmetic and Pharmaceutical Industries.

-Increase Awareness within the world's consumer population about the ethical, environmental and health issues causes by the Modern Animal Farming Industry and Businesses
and incentivize people to stop buying unethically sourced products, and to stop contributing financially to irresponsible Industries and Businesses.
-Increase Political Pressure for lawmakers, representatives and producers worldwide to change their passive postures about this matter and take direct action towards the protection of
the Abused Animals, the Environment, and the Public Health.
-Incentivize Justice Systems to hold the people responsible for these animal's rights and environmental violations accountable for their actions.
-Promote the message and/or Protest/Demonstrate always in a non-violent way, respecting the dignity of every living being involved,
and also the laws and regulations of the country/state in which the activities are being undertaken.
The Modern Animal Farming and Exploitation Industry has also been known to actively fight against Freedom of Speech, and Freedoms of the Press,
whenever it comes to matters where their own profits and their businesses' sustainability are at risk.
The Industry's vicious legal attacks have been observed and well documented in various events such as:
-When Oprah tried to raise awareness about the health issues on eating beef and burguers, in the context of Mad Cow disease,
she was attacked fiercely by the Industries' armies of lawyers, having had to spend thousands of dollars to defend herself in court of law, and
to defend her right to express her concern freely.

and here http://www.independent.co.uk/news/oprah-triumphs-over-the-texas-cattle-ranchers-1147137.html
-The arrest of journalists and citizens and the lobbying for the passing of laws in favor of the proibition of the recording and/or releasing of video footage and photos of
the inside of the Industry's Farms and Slaughterhouses, in order to prevent the general consumer public from knowing the truth about where do their
meat and dairy products really come from, and how the animals involved are treated throughout their lives and during their slaughter.
Articles about laws which restrict the Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Press when it comes in conflict with the Animal Farming and Exploitation
Industries and Businesses' interests can be found here: https://www.thenation.com/article/charged-crime-filming-slaughterhouse/
-The Meat, Dairy and Eggs Industry and Businesses' advertisement/propaganda has been many times misleading, hiding critical information about how the Farmed Animals
are treated and what conditions they were provided or about what are the real health dangers of consuming such products on a regular
basis. On the contrary, Farming Industries and Businesses representatives and salesmen are now known for spreading false
information about how bad it is for our health to consume products like milk and beef regularly, and even lobbying and
pressuring doctors to recommend these now disease-causing food products to their patients or more medication to treat the illnesses they cause.
The people in charge of the Meat, Dairy and Fishing Industries are obviously trying to prevent people from learning about the dangers of consuming/buying
animal products to and from learning about different, healthier, and more responsable dietary and lifestyle choices by economically manipulating lawmakers and the media.

Taking all these facts and information in consideration,
We came to the conclusion that THE PRACTICES MADE BY THE MODERN ANIMAL FARMING INDUSTRY AND BUSINESSES ARE UNACCEPTABLE.
THEY ARE UNETHICAL, IRRESPONSIBLE AND DESTRUCTIVE BOTH FOR HUMANITY AND FOR THE REST OF THE PLANET.
And we are doing our best to put an end to all of these actions.
So, at that moment in our history, we had 2 choices:
-To remain passive, and support what is happening,
-Or to Take Action, and Change it.
And we have decided that we want Change.
We want to take Action, today.
We want to be on the right side of history.
And we invite you to do it as well.
We believe that,
after being fully informed about the degree and number of ethical, environmental, economical and public health violations being done by
the Modern Animal Farming and Exploitation Industries and Businesses,
Many Anonymous Activists might be interested in giving a helping hand in this matter.
That is why we are here.
We have compiled a list of Suggestions directed to everyone that is interested in joining forces to execute #OPAnimalCruelty:
-Join the #OPAnimalCruelty Discussion Group in the AnonBoards forum/thread.
-Remain Anonymous as best as you can, as the Animal Farming and Exploitation Industries and Businesses has been known to target and harass, in some cases murder, activists that express themselves against their practices. Get informed on how to protest anonymously, both online and offline. Read, think, ask questions before you act.
-Check out the work of Activist Group 'Anonymous for the Voiceless', an exemplar and efficent Anti-Speciecism Activist Group, as they are currently distributing a Manual for new activist groups to start their own Demonstrations on the streets, city centers and other public places, with the objectives of: exposing the daily practices of animal cruelty to the public done by the Businesses they support; incentivize citizens to start taking direct action; and sharing information on ways to do so. 'Anonymous for the Voiceless's Facebook page can be found here:
And Videos of their demonstrations can be found here:
If you are interested in the Manual for new activist groups to join efforts with them, contact them and show your interest in participating. Please do not make use of the name 'Anonymous for the Voiceless' without their authorization and without acce
