France Passes Historic Bill Requiring All Slaughterhouses to Be Equipped With Cameras

Published

on

In a landmark win for animal rights, the French national assembly recently passed a bill that will require all French slaughterhouses to be equipped with CCTV cameras. The move came in response to an incredulous public outcry following a slew of disturbing undercover investigations released by the French media by the local animal rights organization L214.

The law, which will go into effect  in 2018, represents a groundbreaking crackdown on slaughterhouse practices and workers, known for animal cruelty, hygiene violations, and various other abuses. The bill passed 28 to 4.

Last September, France’s National Assembly issued a report suggesting 65 measures to improve the “transparency and the inadequate controls” at French slaughterhouses. Implementing CCTV cameras and ensuring more qualified veterinarians at the facilities were among the top proposals listed.

Several videos released exposed “violent and sadistic” practices by slaughterhouse staff, including workers punching and hitting sheep, throwing a lamb at a wall, decapitating a cow, cutting throats, hanging cattle by the legs, and more.

The well-respected L214 has garnered a reputation in France for their controversial, hard-hitting undercover investigations that expose the reality of animal cruelty, taking it beyond what many people assume is happening, and exposing unfathomable shocking incidents.

Though the bill will not go into effect until 2018, if it clears the senate vote in March, there will first be a trial run in July 2017 that will see cameras installed in 263 French slaughterhouses, in areas where all animals are “moved, held, immobilized, stunned, and killed.”

This is not only a victory for animal rights activists, but slaughterhouse workers as well, as they are regularly exploited by the animal agriculture industry. Not everyone is pleased with the bill, however. In fact, higher ups in the French animal agriculture industry retaliated by “dumping truckloads of manure in front of ministries, blocking traffic with trucks, burning tires, and hanging [dead] pigs from highway overpasses.” And French Minister of Agriculture Stephane LeFoll voiced concern that “respect for slaughterhouse workers” would be affected by the bill, and therefore it should not go live in the foreseeable future.

It’s hard to justify LeFoll’s concern, however. In the United States, there is a 95 to 100% turnover rate of factory farm jobs. Seventy percent of workers suffer respiratory conditions as well. Tyson Foods, for instance, was found to have routinely denied workers bathroom breaks, leading to many of the employees wearing diapers. The arguments raised by the the French animal agriculture industry seem a feeble attempt to protect itself from the repercussions that are sure to ensue once the reality of slaughterhouses is exposed.

France’s new bill would also include “an independent commission, a national slaughterhouse ethics committee and comes loaded with stiff penalties for animal cruelty violations — 6 to 12 months of prison and fines from 7500 to 20,000 Euros ($8000 to $21,000).” It’s similar to one passed in Israel that opted for implementing cameras and video recorders in all slaughterhouses by the end of 2016.

Animal rights protests have become more prevalent across Paris, Nice, and Lyon, putting France in the spotlight as one of the leading countries to support animal rights and recognize the protection of animals as an essential part of environmental efforts to limit climate change.

Let’s hope the bill prompts a much needed change in the treatment of both animals and workers.

“The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men.” –  Leonardo DiCaprio

‘Julian Assange Could Die in Prison Without Urgent Medical Care’ – More Than 60 Doctors Warn

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    More than 60 doctors have expressed their concern that Julian Assange may die in prison, and that he is in need of urgent care.

  • Reflect On:

    Never before have we seen the massive censorship of information, combine with the massive awakening of humanity. Our collective perception of the what's happening on our world

‘National Security’ has become an umbrella term to keep information ‘classified’ not truly for national security purposes, but rather to conceal information that threatens elitist agenda’s, be it corporate, political, or financial. Usually, they’re all intertwined. President Eisenhower warned us about the “military industrial complex” and the dangers it poses, after him John F. Kennedy warned us that “there is a very grave danger than an announced need for an increased need for security, will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of censorship and concealment.” Today, secrecy is out of hand, and it’s the backbone of un-just, immoral, and inhumane actions taken by not only the American empire and the Deep State, but by powerful global elitists as well.

This is exactly why Julian Assange is where he is now, because he was publishing secrets that had no justification for concealment, secrets that show how war, terrorism, and other actions by powerful people were undertaken for other reasons, and not those (reasons) that are commonly given in the form of mainstream media. One example would be the funding and arming and in some cases, creation of terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda by agencies like the CIA in order to help destabilize countries in the Middle East so the United Stats could justify an intervention, supposedly to bring ‘democracy’ and ‘restore peace’ to those countries. This type of thing is well known, which is why current democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard introduced the ‘Stop Arming Terrorist Act,’  a proposed act that would stop the U.S. government from using taxpayer dollars to directly or indirectly support groups who are allied with and supporting terrorist groups like ISIS and al Qaeda in their war to overthrow the Syrian government.

Julian Assange exposed nothing but lies and deception, and it’s truly a crime that he is not a free man, but this is the type of world we live in. A world where activists and journalists like Assange are silenced, a world where alternative independent media out lets like Collective Evolution are extremely censored and demonetized.

We are living in an ‘Orwellian’ type of time, where there is a ‘ministry of truth’ that claims to be ‘fact checking’ information when really, these organizations seem to simply be ridiculing credible information that is full of evidence and legitimate sources, simply for the purposes of, again, threatening powerful people.

Assange is a hero in this field, and those who make big leaps with regards to exposing such corruption are often vilified. Retired USAF lieutenant colonel Karen Kwiatkowski writes in an article posted at Lew Rockwell’s website that Julian Assange is receiving the same treatment as suspected terrorists while in captivity at “Her Majesty’s Prison Service” at Belmarsh, stating that he’s probably being tortured with psychotropic drugs.

The FBI, Pentagon, and CIA are “interviewing” Assange. Kwiatkowski writes:

Interviewing is the wrong word.  I’d like to say doctoring him, because it would be more accurate, except that word implies some care for a positive outcome.  Chemical Gina has her hands in this one, and we are being told that Assange is being “treated” with 3-quinuclidinyl benzilate, known as BZ. 

Not long ago, John Shipton, Julian Assange’s father, gave an interview to the Strategic Culture Foundation sharing the latest on Julian Assange and how he’s being treated, claiming that “they are murdering my son.” You can read that interview interview here.

Assange is a man who clearly knows a lot, and has information that probably goes well beyond what’s already been divulged by Wikileaks. The treatment of him and everything he is going through is horrific and heart-breaking, but not surprising. It’s truly jaw dropping and un-fathomable how such treatment and even such an arrest can in anyway be justified within the minds of anybody. And it goes to show how powerful people are capable of doing anything they want, no matter how immoral and illegal.

An article recently published in The Independent  written by Henry Vaughan states:

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange could die in prison without urgent medical care, according to an open letter signed by more than 60 doctors. The medics, from the UK, Australia, Europe and Sri Lanka express “serious concerns” about 48-year-old Assange’s fitness to stand trial in the letter addressed to Priti Patel, the home secretary.He is being held in Belmarsh prison, in south-east London, ahead of a hearing in February to fight extradition to the US, where he faces 18 charges, including conspiring to hack into a Pentagon computer. Assange is accused of working with former US army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to leak hundreds of thousands of classified documents.The doctors are calling for Assange to be transferred to a university teaching hospital, where he can be assessed and treated by an expert medical team.

The letter, which has also been copied to shadow home secretary Diane Abbott, says: “From a medical point of view, on the evidence currently available, we have serious concerns about Mr Assange’s fitness to stand trial in February 2020. Most importantly, it is our opinion that Mr Assange requires urgent expert medical assessment of both his physical and psychological state of health. Any medical treatment indicated should be administered in a properly equipped and expertly staffed university teaching hospital (tertiary care). Were such urgent assessment and treatment not to take place, we have real concerns, on the evidence currently available, that Mr Assange could die in prison. The medical situation is thereby urgent. There is no time to lose.”

Doctors are warning if action isn’t taken that Julian Assange may actually die.

Below is a tweet from Australian journalist and BAFTA award-winning documentary filmmaker John Pilger, who made comments last month that shed some light on how Assange is being treated.

The Takeaway

What you read here is no surprise, for a long time Julian Assange was allowed no visitors, and now, it’s quite clear why. Those who have had access to visits have made it quite clear that he is in very poor health. It’s unbelievable how the powers that be can simply do as they please, illegally, with no consequence, and their power lies within the human population and in those who have been subjected to perception manipulation, believing that Julian Assange should actually be locked up and done away with.

A great quote by Edward Bernays, who was known as the father of public relations, comes to mind here:

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. (source)

The ability for this powerful group to manipulate our minds is clearly fading, and Julian Assange has been a big part of that, but we still have a lot of work to do.

Humpback Whale Population Leaps Back From Near-Extinction — From Just 450 To Over 25,000

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A new study explains how the humpback whale population has gone from near extinction to numbers that were seen before commercial whaling began.

  • Reflect On:

    Our potential to assist with the restoration of a species on the brink of extinction on our planet is huge. We can can feel encouraged that one day, human greed and ego, combined with political/elitist agendas, will no longer rule the day.

A new study from the University of Washington’s School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences has revealed that the humpback whale population (also known as Megaptera novaeangliae) is growing, and has rebounded from near extinction numbers to approximately 25,000. The researchers believe that these numbers are close to pre-whaling numbers. The study was co-authored by Grant Adams, John Best and André Punt.

The study, published last month in the journal Royal Society Open Science, is one that argues against an assessment that was conducted between 2006 and 2015 by the International Whaling Commission which claimed that the population of humpback whales had only recovered approximately 30 percent of its pre-exploitation population. That being said, since that assessment was conducted, new data has come forth that, according to this study, provides more accurate information on life-history, catches and genetics.

It’s great to see positive change on the planet in the midst of several issues and the constant bombardment of ‘negativity.’ Whaling once represented one of the world’s most destructive forms of exploitation of natural resources. As the study points out,

…many species were hunted for centuries and/or across vast geographical areas and, as a consequence, were nearly extirpated. Protection was afforded at different times during the twentieth century (e.g. right whales, Eubalaena spp., were protected in 1935 and humpback, Megaptera novaeangliae, and blue whales, Balaenoptera musculus, in the mid-1960s). However, removals thereafter by illegal whaling brought several populations to dangerously low levels until the moratorium on all commercial whaling was implemented by the International Whaling Commission (IWC) for its member states in the mid-1980s.

We’ve Come A Long Way

Prior to these practices, indigenous populations were quite in-tune with mother nature and the preservation and maintenance of its species. After having completely lost our connection for a period of time, we have come a long way in areas like the restoration of the humpback whale population.

A long period of exploitation from pre-modern and modern whaling drove the WSA humpback whales to the brink of extinction. The population declined abruptly after the onset of commercial whaling and remained small, with less than 1000 individuals for nearly 40 years. Once protected, WSA humpback whales have recovered strongly, and their current abundance is close to 25 000 whales. The population status is much more optimistic than previously thought and abundance should reach its pre-exploitation level within the next 10 years or so, assuming mortality from anthropogenic threats remains low.

Lead author Alex Zerbini of the UW’s Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean stressed the importance of providing population assessments without biases, but says these findings come as good news— an example of how an endangered species can come back from near extinction.

This isn’t the only good news when it comes to our marina family. Canada, for example, has completely banned the captivity of whales and dolphins, although their capture is still permitted for certain scientific purposes, which is absolutely brutal. Scientific study of these majestic, empathetic and extremely intelligent beings should be limited to observation, and those that have passed away. Furthermore, Marine Land seems to be exempt for that law, and they are permitted to keep the ones they have in captivity there for life. They will probably breed them as well allowing for the sustainability of the park, which is heart-breaking.

What Gives Us The right?

What gives us the right to do what we do to animals? This has all been the result of brainwashing and marketing. Anybody who is in touch with their heart and has qualities of empathy would never condone the capture of any animals. It hurts to see another hurt, and those who don’t think it’s hurtful and traumatic for these animals are severely misinformed.

Not long after the news came out of Canada, for the first time in 17 years, there will be no whaling in Icelandic waters, at least for this summer. Because of a shrinking international market for whale meat, and an overall shift in consciousness on the planet to a more compassionate and empathetic stance, along with an expansion of a no-fishing coastal zone, both of the nation’s biggest whaling companies are apparently putting a halt to their hunting season.

The Takeaway

The way we treat animals on our planet is very concerning and heart-breaking. Large corporations have exploited animals, and still do, while we live our lives not really knowing what’s been happening to them. It’s still a big problem, and all industries that exploit animals are in opposition to the values that we need to return to on our planet: compassion, empathy, and love. We are here to live in harmony with animals, and not use them for our own selfish purposes. The exploitation of animals is not needed and it’s completely unnecessary.

An Explosive Documentary Exposing Pedophiles In Parliament & The British Royal Family

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Sonia Poulton, a British journalist, social commentator, and filmmaker, has been investigating the dark web of pedophilia for years. Some of her research has been complied into a documentary called "Pedophiles In Parliament."

  • Reflect On:

    Evidence has been emerging for decades with regards to this type of activity in 'high profile places.' Why, only now, is the entire planet starting to wake up to this fact? Reflect on how much power and control these people have.

”They use all forms of persuasion to prevent people from speaking out, to silence people. Threats, intimidation, blackmail, financial deprivation. And all types of harassment such as put under intensive surveillance, telephone tapping, all of this. They pull out the stops and they have unlimited funds because those funds are supplied by the tax payer” Andrea Davison, Former Intelligence Agent (source)

Whilst the global press is focusing on Prince Andrew’s alleged involvement with Jefferey Epstein’s child trafficking sex ring, this may, in fact, actually pale in comparison to other criminal activity involving children by the hands of the British Establishment.

Sonia Poulton, a British journalist, social commentator, and filmmaker, has been investigating the dark web of pedophilia for years that connects Margaret Thatcher, ‘Sir’ Edward Heath, David Cameron, Theresa May and Jeremey Corbyn to the cover-up (and for some, the actual facilitation) of sex crimes against children.  It is thought that this cover-up, may have been going on for at least 30 years.

Her documentary ‘Paedophiles in Parliament’ is a shocking expose which links many MP’s to child abuse.  Sonia exposes how the British Royal Family is also tied into this.

Prominent Royal members were openly well-known friends to the now-deceased and notoriously depraved pedophile Jimmy Saville.  Curiously, it is said that he had access to the Palace whenever he liked.  With MI5 and Scotland Yard having the job of ‘vetting’ everyone around the Royals, it would have been known to them, that Jimmy Saville at the very least, had a very bad reputation and really was not ‘royal’ material.

Yet, he had a very close relationship with Prince Charles, for decades.

It is now alleged that there were at least 450 cases of abuse by the hands of Jimmy Saville and that 8 British police forces knew of this and did nothing about it.

The news of his sick and cruel acts was only made widely known after he died. There is also a similar story in regards to ‘Sir’ Edward Heath, an ex-prime minister of the UK no less, who is also now known to have been an alleged pedophile.

According to Anna Brees, Ex BBC Reporter, 40 people came forward to report that Edward Heath had sexually abused them.

One of the victims, Michael Tarraga, UK, who tragically only has a few months to live due to severe COPD, claims he was ‘bought and sold’ for sex and was trafficked from several different foster homes he grew up in. He recently published the book ‘Meat Rack Boy’ detailing what had happened to him.  The proceeds from his book go to helping others who have experienced horrific abused like he has. You can listen to a podcast with him where he explains how these rings operate here:

Trevor Victor Norman Fortescue, CBE, also known known as Tim Fortescue, was a British politician. He was the Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) for Liverpool Garston from 1966 to 1974.  

Fortescue was appointed  by Edward Heath as an assistant whip under Francis Pym, served as a senior whip, Lord Commissioner of the Treasury from 1971 until he resigned in September 1973. According to him, as stated in the documentary above:

For anyone with any sense, who was in trouble, would come to the whips and tell them the truth, and say now, I’m in a jam, can you help? It might be debt, it might be… a scandal involving small boys, or any kind of scandal in which, erm er, a member seemed likely to be mixed up in, they’d come and ask if we could help and if we could, we did. And we would do everything we can because we would store up brownie points… and if I mean, that sounds a pretty, pretty nasty reason, but it’s one of the reasons because if we could get a chap out of trouble then, he will do as we ask forever more.

Lord Mountbatten, who was an Uncle to Prince Philip, and very close to Prince Charles, was allegedly assassinated in 1979 by the IRA.  However, recently uncovered FBI files, which reference a 1944 interview with Elizabeth de la Poer Beresford, Baroness Decies, a friend of the royal family.  The report stated;

“She states that in these circles Lord Louis Mountbatten and his wife are considered persons of extremely low morals. She stated that Lord Louis Mountbatten was known to be a homosexual with a perversion for young boys,”

Lord Mountbatten was also good friends with Jimmy Saville.

How ‘convenient’ that this only ever comes out after these people die, you might say.

Jimmy is said to have not only been a vile abuser himself, but also a procurer of children to abuse for others. Who were these people that he helped bring innocent children to?

This kind of thing has been floating around out there for decades. For example, a member of the Royal family was claimed to be part of a suspected pedophile ring under investigation by the police in the late 1980s, a former police officer has said. The former Metropolitan Police officer said he was told by a detective sergeant that the investigation into the ring, which was also claimed to include an MP, was shut down for national security reasons. “I was in a car with two other vice squad officers … The detective sergeant said he had just had a major child abuse investigation shut down by the CPS regarding a royal and an MP,” he told the Sunday Mirror newspaper. “He did not mention names, but he said the CPS had said it was not in the public’s interest because it ‘could destabilise national security’.”

Peter McKelvie, a former child protection chief in the UK, gained attention when he claimed that senior politicians, military figures and even people linked to the Royal Family were among the alleged abusers. While working in Hereford and Worcester, he helped to convict notorious child abuser Peter Righton, who was once one of the country’s most respected authorities on child care.  This highlights a great point, and something that I’ve come across multiple times in my research. Many people who work for national child care protection programs are directly involved in this type of thing. McKelvie  is one of many who told the world that these types of powerful VIP pedophile rings have been running in secrecy for multiple years. (source)

Anna Brees was recently interviewed by Shaun Atwood, a London based activist during a ‘true-crime podcast‘ and said that she has received information on some current MP’s who have been sexually harming boys.

In another eye-opening interview, Shaun also spoke to an ex Scotland Yard Police Officer of 27 years, about how the police cover-up pedophile rings. Jon Wedger explains how easy it is for pedophiles in the UK to get around the law and gain access to victims through programs for ‘helping’ children with special needs or those in foster care.  The fact that the most vulnerable children in society are easy prey for these sick individuals to get regular access to is deeply disturbing.

Whilst this film certainly makes for uncomfortable viewing – it is indeed very hard to fathom what happens to innocent children, especially by those that are supposed to ‘care’ for the public – but this is perhaps one of the most important topics that we are facing today.

In an era where corruption and power is at an all-time high, is this, in fact, the biggest cause as to what is holding us back from living in a free society?

Is it time to connect the dots and see what is really behind this widespread corruption, and that is, the hidden in plain sight systematic abuse of children by the hands of the powerful and those that are meant to protect us.

Our Interview With A Survivor of Child Sex Trafficking

Anneke Lucas is an author, speaker, advocate for child sex trafficking victims, founder of the non-profit organization Liberation Prison Yoga, and creator of the Unconditional Model.

Her work is based off her 30-year journey to restore her mental and physical wellbeing after surviving some of the worst atrocities known to humankind before the age of 12. Sold as a young child into a murderous pedophile network by her family, she was rescued after nearly six years of abuse and torture.

We recently conducted an interview with her. Below is a clip from the four part series, as it was a very long and detailed interview.
