Bad Medicine, Documentary.

Posted in Animal Testing by Glô! on the February 28th, 2007

The Human and Nonhuman Cost of vivisection.

Bad Medicine is the first UK produced film exposing the true human cost of animal experimentation.

Although many people believe that vivisection is a ‘necessary evil’, essential to the well-being of themselves and their loved ones, the reverse is actually the case; that basing human medicine on the false methodology of animal experimentation is a major cause of untold human suffering and death. Vivisection is also a violations of the rights that nonhuman animals have.

This is the film that the BBC would show you if it were not bed-fellows with the vivisection industry itself, and this film was made in order to go some way to redressing the torrent of pro-vivisection propaganda which has poured forth from the vivisection syndicate and the


industry-beholden media - the BBC in particular - over the past several decades.

The DVD is 45 min long and contains interviews with several doctors such as Dr Monheim - FADALI, Director of DLRM (Doctors and Lawyers for Responsible Medicine), Dr Tony PAGE, author of Vivisection Unveiled, Mat Fraser, actor, and among others, naturopath and BAVA Director Pat RATTIGAN.

The Ethical Consumer, Magasine

Posted in documentary/Litterature by Glô! on the February 20th, 2007

Know what hides
behind a brand.

Being an ethical consumer means buying products that did not involve any exploitation of humans and nonhuman animals and harm to the environment.

It’s not always easy to know what hides behind a label and that’s where the Ethical Consumer magazine comes in handy.
While most magazines would only look at the products, the Ethical Consumer looks at the brands

behind the products. It highlights the companies that try to promote an ethical image while being involved in operations that many consumers would disagree with.
The Ethical Consumer examines the social, environmental and ethical impact these companies have on society.
It gives tips on how to shop ethically, lists the companies which should be boycotted for their unethical behaviour.

In short, the Ethical Consumer gives consumers all the info that mainstream magazines would never dare to publish.

ISPCA on Stag Hunting

Posted in General news by Glô! on the February 6th, 2007

ISPCA calls for a ban on Stag
and Fox Hunting.

ISPCA Press Release | Jan 25th 2007.

The ISPCA regards the hunting of any animal as a despicable form of deliberate cruelty where animals are terrorised and chased to exhaustion to provide entertainment. Stag hunting goes one step further in the cruelty stakes as the stags are bred and reared in captivity and released in unfamiliar terrain where they literally run for their lives.

The reality of this horrific past time was witnessed by children leaving school on Tuesday afternoon as an exhausted blood
stained terrified stag, with its tongue hanging out, tried to jump the school wall in County Meath to escape the frenzied hounds of the Ward Union Hunt.
The trauma of this experience was heightened for the children by the horses skidding on the roadway putting both horses and the general public at risk of injury.

The Hunts Men were obviously not in control of either the hounds or the members of the hunt considering what happened. This was a breach of the Control of Dogs Act and a serious road traffic hazard which could have caused a serious accident.

The Society is receiving more and more complaints from the farming community about the stress caused to farm animals by hounds hunting through flocks of heavily pregnant sheep and other livestock at this time of year.

The ISPCA calls on our Legislators to take immediate steps to Ban all forms of hunting with hounds. (updated 25/01/07)

Stag Hunting Incident

Posted in Blood Sports / Entertainment, General news by Glô! on the February 6th, 2007

Ward Union Hunt Invade a Playground School

Chased by a pack of hounds, a terrified stag run into the playground of a school. This incident happened on Tuesday 23rd of January, at Kidalkey National School in Co. Meath.

Exhausted, terrified, the stag was bleeding, his tongue hanging out, and his eyes bulging with fear as the pack of hounds was coming closer.

Some of the children who witnessed the hunt were in shock and running for safety.
Parents called RTE Radio’s Liveline show to claim that their children’s lives had been put at risk and were furious that the Ward Union Hunt had not apologised for
their actions.
A woman also commented that if anything had gone wrong, an ambulance wouldn’t have
been able to get down the road which was clogged with hunt vehicles and horses.
The Garda in Trim also received numerous complaints concerning the behaviour of the Ward Union Hunt and this incident prompted landowners in the area to ban the hunters from coming on to their property.

Following this incident, The Ward Union Deer Hunt announced on the 25th of January that they had suspended hunting indefinitely. But, on the 31st of January, the hunt was back chasing their captive-bred deer.
