Animal Rights Movement Facts – The Truth That You Should Know…

The global Animal Rights Movement is NOT what it seems. It has perverted animal welfare goals (which are responsible and ethical) to achieving their goal of total animal liberation. Animal Rights Africa is part of the global rights movement and is linked to PETA, IFAW, ALF and HSUS. Animal rights groups are NOT animal welfare groups. They do not provide any support or management for animals or habitats. They are a political group trying to influence public opinion with their ideologies. Their massive funding goes towards these goals through awareness campaigns and NOT towards any conservation or welfare goals.

The animal rights movement rejects international conservation protocols as well as the opinions of respected global conservation bodies such as the IUCN, CITES, WWF and the Addis Ababa Principles and Guidelines on Sustainable use. South Africa is signatory to many of these and the animal rights movement, including ARA in SA, is working to undermine the government’s and society’s efforts in this regard.

The ultimate goal of the animal rights movement is the “total liberation of animals”. The human race should all be vegans as animals should not be used as food. They want to ban all hunting, fishing, zoos, rodeos and even family pets (they eat animal products). All kosher slaughter to stop and no animals to be used in any scientific research at all! All animals must be liberated!!

In South Africa, ARA is probably the foremost animal rights group. Their website claims the following:

Main Objective

“Humans do not currently include “non humans” (animals) in their sphere of legal, political or moral rights holders” and ARA mission is to bring these rights about

“animals are NOT a means to human ends” and are totally against any form of sustainable use, animals for food, pets etc.

“to campaign against property status of animals and that animals CANNOT be owned” ie no farmers may own animals etc.

“animals suffer emotionally as a result of exploitation. This brings about

ARA secondary obejctives (and where all their funding goes)

“promoting their agenda to the public through workshops and publications”

“placing rescued animals with individuals and organisations who can take care of them” many of these are exploited to raise funds for the AR movement and are never rehabiilitated. ARA does not do any rehabilitation or give any care to these “rescued” animals

“to encourage humans to become vegans” anything else is animal abuse.

“to campaign against their perceived animal abuse” ie sustainable use, farming livestock etc

“lobbying to influence government and policy decisions”

Further the ARA Trust is a non profit tax exempt organisation aimed at reducing levels of “oppression” in animals. ARA collaborates with the international animal rights groups such as PETA, HSUS, ALF, IFAW etc sharing strategies and pooling information and building dialogue to suit their needs.

The animal rights cult is led by PETA and the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and supports extremist groups like ALF (Animal Liberation Front). PETA was founded and is still led by the controversial Ingrid Newkirk, who is famed for her attention grabbing publicity stunts.

Despite PETAs criticism of farmers, hunters, fishermen, scientists, zoos etc, PETA puts to death over 90% of the pets it receives from the public expecting PETA to find adoptive homes for them. Over 19200 have been killed since 1998 according to US government documents.

PETAs president and co founder Ingrid Newkirk has described her groups goal as “total animal liberation”. This means complete abolishment of meat, cheese, eggs, milk, honey, zoos, aquariums, wool, leather, fur,silk, hunting, fishing and even pet ownership! ARA is part of this global movement!

PETA has also paid thousands of dollars to convicted arsonists and convicted criminals to burn down scientific laboratories using animals as well as paid money to ELF (Earth Liberation Front) a certified FBI “domestic terrorist” group responsible for dozens of firebombs and death threats. PETA spokesman said at their convention that “blowing stuff up and smashing windows is a great way to bring about animal liberation” and “hallelujah to people who are prepared to do it”.

PETA regularly targets minor children with their anti-meat and anti-milk campaigns. One piece of literature tells kids “your mommy kills animals”.PETA brags that it reaches 1.2 million children in the US with its email messages, 30 000 of them between the ages of 6 and 12. One PETA vice president told FOX news that their campaigns “are always geared towards children and always will be”.

So don’t be ignorant, do not donate to any animal rights groups. Your donation does NOT go to help animals. It funds the animal rights staff salaries and their advertising as well as their self serving research (which is usually contrary to mainstream opinion).

Considering the above facts about the animal rights movement internationally and in South Africa, the government should look atexcluding these cults from decision making processes as well as removing their tax free exemption as the attitude of these groups are contrary to the interests of broader society and especially the rural poor, farmers, game rangers, national parks management etc..

Besides ARA there are numerous other groups in SA posing as conservation groups when in fact their agenda is more to gain publicity than help conservation efforts.

Rather donate to animal welfare organisations as they DO have the interests of the animals at heart. eg SPCA in SA and certain animal rehabilitation centres (some are scams too)
