BOLD NATIVE: a film about Animal Liberation

Today, I’m sharing the fictional film ‘Bold Native’, a movie about Animal Liberation. If you enjoy watching this film, please click on the links below it to support the filmmaker so that more movies can be produced like this one. You can also visit The Vegan Revolution channel (where I found this movie) for more re-educational information on the plight of our animals, how we can help them, and the activism going on right now; plus, how going vegan can help the planet, which—as an aside—directly helps people sensitive to chemicals. And remember, if you feel like you’re in a cage without freedom: none of us will be free until the animals are free.

More about ‘Bold Native’ from The Animal Liberation Front, and a quote from ‘Bold Native’:

“What is Freedom? Are we born free or do we earn it? And if you deny freedom to the quiet ones—those with no voice—can you be free yourself? Or are you caged by your own lack of compassion?” ~ Charlie Cranehill (played by Joaquin Pastor)…

“… an ALF member wanted by the government for domestic terrorism, emerges from the underground to coordinate a nationwide action, while his CEO father (Randolph Mantooth, Emergency) tries to find him before the FBI does. Simultaneously, a young idealist campaigns for more humane treatment of farmed animals on behalf of a large nonprofit organization, and a woman from Charlie’s past threatens to undermine his plans.

The film reflects a growing cultural debate about the use of animals for food, clothing, entertainment, and scientific research. It introduces viewers to the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) of 2006, a law which enables the prosecution of activists as terrorists if their actions result in economic damage to corporations in animal industries like factory farms, slaughterhouses, research labs or fur farms. In addition to narrative storytelling, the film incorporates undercover footage from labs, farms, and real-life animal liberations for stunning realism.”

Enjoy this stunning, powerful film!

How Going Vegan Helped my Relationship with My SuperMan

(This post discusses adult topics and uses adult words written in an Australian vernacular.)

I’ve spent 13 years, 14 this September, practicing the only known treatment for inhalant allergies to chemicals: avoidance behaviour. Due to digestion issues related to food intolerance that hit in 2002-3, at the age of 33 after years of normal chemical use, although I did love the smell of all of my female consumer-based beauty-care-products fiercely. I was wild, free and adored my collection of fragrances, red wine, drugs, cigarettes nail polish… ; yet, I spent the next decade needing to, after being advised by the one and only Australian renowned and respected Allergist and Immunologist, Dr Colin Little, here in Victoria, Australia,  to not waste money on quacks (my words) to practice chemical avoidance—wearing a 3M mask worked excellently for around 10 years or so of this ‘condition’ I have. My life changed immensely. I thrived at it. I recovered in 09′. Why did I leave the farm house? I need to blog about that.  Since 2012 though, after living in a water damaged building (WDB), I developed food intolerances that didn’t stop until, basically, all I was eating was fruit and veggies—yet still I was losing foods. I mean who reacts to bananas? Really? To paraphrase my doctor: Bananas are a food like any other! WTF!

Bananas

So I switched to another high-carb food that gives rocking energy—if not cooked in oil [speaking to you Slobodan!] (Note to peeps who are not chronically ill: Please don’t tell sick people they look great just because they’ve lost some weight because they may be feeling like carnivore-shit on the inside (like dead corpses of other species coated to the inner intestine? Yeah? Got that picture?); and besides, life is not actually about being skinny but it’s bullshit if you don’t fit in your pants. Like, if you do want to lean out a little: Go Vegan. Or buy this cool t-shirt from The Anticarnist)

Sweet Potato Chips

My favourite Vegan Meal: Sweet Potato Fries

So there I was, sick as all fuck, sulking about being an accidental Vegan (I’d lost my milk chocolate Caramel Koalas, yeah? Those and hot glass of milk were my comfort food and I was not yet aware of the abundant and multitude of ways to whip up vegan treats. Food and cooking, not so much. That’s what boyfriends are for, I guess?) and, during the summer of 015′, there I was hanging out on YouTube: due to the need for human company, totally frustrated with FreeLee and her 10 banana smoothies capable of making me ill for the rest of the day (it’s not FreeLee’s fault, my body seems to think I need to release histamine to protect myself from bananas), or I am having a severe mould reaction to all bananas (I can only describe like a bad acid trip.) and  then only after being tortured with food testing, I came across this speech, titled, ‘The Greatest Speech You Will Ever Hear’ by Gary Yourofsky. Here is the video:

I saw this realising: accidental Veganism was/is not even about me: it’s about the planet, the animals and all of our health. Spiritually is lacking in my world. Becoming vegan has not cured my illness but it’s allowed me to eat food without getting ill. And I can shit; that’s important when you get to my age: 46.

My only problem with Vegansim was social: For now, I live an isolated life, and have a carer, I’m not able to cook, clean and, sometimes, even feed my own animals, and sometimes. I can’t lift heavy things so the man in my life, my best friend, Slobodan, does it all for me. I’m not good at being grateful for this, but worse:

I was left wondering, how can I have a close relationship with someone who wants to put a corpse in your frypan or oven when you yourself have woken up to the truth of animal cruelty?

My answer: I showed my man, Gary Yourofsky’s, ‘The Most Important Speech You Will Ever Hear‘ And before it even finished, he turned around and said to me: “Misha, I’m not doing this to the animals, anymore. I won’t do it; I can’t be a part of it!” This, coming from a 46-year-old man born and bread in a meat-eating Macedonian culture where family BBQ’s and meal times are passionate and full-on events. It kinda rocked my world. I find that hell sexy in man. You really have no idea how much different a vegan man is because he sees the world differently and doesn’t want to add to the pain; that’s special. And:

Vegan image of food: Macedonian Cuisine is to die for; ergo, not literally!

Metaphorically, Macedonian Cuisine is to die for; ergo, not literally! And certainly not be animals…

We are talking about traditional dishes nearly always containing animal-based products, and even more so, unless people are fasting for religious reasons, these dishes are plated up with piles of ‘chops’, pork, lamb, beef, seafood: all animal flesh sold as a with a bar code. He says:

A supermarket smells different. packaged flesh. It no longer normal in my world.

 (How can a pile plate full of lamb chops just go by the noun ‘lamb’? There’s maybe 7-8 baby sheep that were inhumanely slaughtered to get those ‘chops’ made from sliced corpses (that’s my imaginative guess). Just some food for thought there.). An old favourite of mine was meat stuffed into capsicums. Sausages hanging on the washing line. This was/is normal life for Slobodan to come home to. So when he sees animals in trucks or legal-animal torture on YouTube, he gets angry.

Going vegan has helped me cope with a Life Altering illness; it’s also helped with my only close relationship. I never thought I would get married due to so many complicated reasons but with veganism in common, it runs pretty deep: the connection, almost spiritual (after going raw when Slobodan first went vegan, it was spiritual and we shared that) the commitment, the caring for creatures who don’t have a voice to speak up for themselves: I find that compassion sexy in a man.

My ephipany: All people who have chemical sensitivity must do their utmost for the planet as their health depends upon it. And most people don’t give a fukc or even care about the planet. They are just as sucked into the consumerism marketed at them as fragrance heads–most, not all. They don’t give any fukcs for the animals tested on so that products are SAFE for consumers. LMFAO/ Safe for who? Burn shit into the atmosphere: Cigarettes and woodsmoke. *How shameful* Considering like 2.8% of people in just NSW alone have sensitivities to chemicals.

Anyway. This is my vegan mate Solomon.

He is my friend and professional therapist’s goat, Solomon, who had a rocky start to life but is funky fine and dandy now! I think there is a sister or something, I will update you at The Labyrinth with This.

PS: “If you are thinking about going vegan: do it for a month; if you don’t feel good after that, go back to eating shitty, greasy food made from animals’ flesh and byproducts… Go Raw for a week, then tell me how you feel.” ~ Vegan Revolution

How To Explain Why You’re Vegan

(Post updated: April 2017 to reflect new beliefs, improve grammar and clarity.)

From: The Vegan Activist, comes one of the most helpful videos so far. I have issues with being vegan, well not with the practice of being a committed vegan, it’s just(-ice) spend the-socially-interactive part of my life asking people to please not wear fragrance and sprays so I can access buildings like University, doctors, specialists and even friends and family; adding veganism into the mix just makes asking for special considerations weirder, scarier. I don’t want to offend friends and family because, as it is, being chemically sensitive to someone’s fragrance, believe it or not, can cause them to become offended. Relationships have disappeared like a puff of smoke, leaving behind caustic emotions that impede on confidence and just the idea of future friendships, interactions with family etc.

The right to wear fragrance in public/home/safe spaces: Human selfishness at it’s finest, almost… except for the mass animal holocaust that’s going on as your read this.

Breathing may be a major life activity that you take for granted; that is, until it’s impeded upon by chemical irritants or mould. Ergo, for when that person, who is always wearing their favourite fragrance, is asked to forgo their ‘personal choice’ of scent so you can breathe at Christmas lunch or other event, well, now, just imagine their reaction when telling them: “Please don’t wear any products containing fragrance” and telling them their will be “NO corpses eaten in or at our house”. Luckily, my caring vegan man is an angry vegan and adamant that animals and their by-products won’t be eaten in our future house. Lol, I have back up! We spent Xmas alone due to the fragrance issues… it’s just easier; and we had the loveliest time making a colourful festive vegan lunch.

(Update: Christmas 2016 was spent out on the balcony of our build, eating vegan Mexican food, with my lovely daughter who went fragrance-free to perfection. Image from my Instagram, below. xo)

Still, I have to deal with the needs of my medical condition and (Update: diagnosis of CIRS), classed as a disability in Australia, but not recognised as such by the general public (the Australian Government, yes, we are getting there.), and the only choice I have when it comes to supporting the mass slaughter and consumption of animals is to not be a part of it (Update: the movement of veganism and abolishing animal cruelty are calling my name for valid reasons: Point 1), if chemicals are tested on animals yet humans can be as chemically sensitive as myself and some of my readers, then that proves the whole point of the cause: animals suffer needlessly. Point 2), we are all in this world together and if we don’t do something, we’re just sitting back waiting to die along with it.)  My diet is no longer a personal choice even though it’s what bought me here to this point. I must stand tall, stand up for what I believe is right; just like I have for all the chemical sensitivity related causes I have personally and actively supported and worked for while breaking down barriers for people like us. It’s this same personal value, the need for justice, that has bought me to publish at the blog, The Labyrinth ~ and finding our way out.

We all have slightly different reasons for choosing to avoid animal products, but the most universal one is because it’s the right thing to do. When talking to open minded people, don’t be afraid to give them the shocking facts. But with others, leading by example can be more effective, planting seeds along the way. Regardless of this, be confident and speak on behalf of the voiceless animals.

Just by being vegan you can save up to 200 animals a year by not supporting the industry of animal slaughter and cruelty. Grass-fed, organic doesn’t mean anything for the animals because they are still systematically raped, abuse and slaughtered while kept as slaves.
