MOTF THOUGHTS: Respect our fellow creatures, all forms of life have equal rights on our planet - Pete Perry 1966
AS REPORTS EMERGE OF THE HORRIFIC ABUSE OF ANIMALS AT PORTON DOWN MILITARY LABORATARIES...
What UK Government dares to introduce a NON-HUMAN RIGHTS ACT?
By Pete & Nikki
So you think animals and other creatures are protected in UK law? Then Think again!
Almost 10,000 pigs, rabbits, monkeys and rodents were used in top-secret tests at the Porton Down military research base in Wiltshire last year, we have discovered.
The figures were revealed by junior defence minister Philip Dunne in response to Lib Dem MP Mike Hancock who raised concerns about the facility in parliament last month...
The British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection highlighted 'disturbing and cruel' experiments which include live pigs being blasted with explosives and forced to inhale mustard gas, monkeys being infected with anthrax and guinea pigs being killed with nerve agent.
And the number of procedures being carried out is on the up.
Mr Dunne listed the number of animal procedures undertaken at DSTL Porton Down over the last three years...
The figure has risen from 8,452 in 2009 to 9,582 in 2010 and 9,882 last year.
Are we just going to stand by and allow this abuse of our fellow creatures to continue?
As we have said before, on many occasions, Mankind seems to think that they are superior to any other life-forms on this planet, whereas the reality is that we all depend upon each other.
We are supposed to have laws that prevent cruelty to animals in this country, but when we have a Government and Royal Family that supports fox, deer and badger hunting, it would be laughable if it were not so serious.
The fact is, we need much stronger laws to protect our fellow creatures, which should not only include cuddly little mammals, but ALL forms of life, including birds, fishes, insects, plants, fungi and even bacteria!
THIS IS WHY WE ARE LAUNCHING A NEW CAMPAIGN TO BRING INTO EFFECT A BRAND NEW LAW, WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN USED BEFORE, -
THE UK NON-HUMAN RIGHTS ACT.
LOVE & PEACE

WHAT AN EXAMPLE!
Well! As a postscript to our feature below, how can we expect to stop people killing animals for sport, when not only does our Prime Minister David Cameron hunt defenceless creatures for fun, - but so do the Queen and Prince Philip.
Here's the proof...
Just out of interest, Philip's quota for each shoot is 1,000 birds!
SICK! SICK! SICK!
...and They both add this...
How can we humans call ourselves 'civilised' (whatever that means) when we continue to abuse our fellow creatures in this way?
US Dentist WALTER PALMER maye have hit the headlines recently for killing Cecil The Lion, - but this is simply the tip of the iceberg when it comes to human abuse of animals and, lets face it, fellow humans alike.
Even here in The UK, we have a Government (yes, that is our Prime Minister cosying up to the Hunt Master) made up of backward-thinking toffs who want to bring back the hunting of animals with dogs, just like their fathers and their fathers before them.
'Tally-Ho!' and all that should have been consigned to history and at the beginning of the TWENTIETH Century, - let alone the TWENTY-FIRST!
Sadly, these relics of a past era, the aristocracy, believe it is their God-given right to rule over the 'Commoners' (us!) - help themselves to a larger slice of the National Economic cake, to thrash the peasants if they fall out of line, - and to kill wild animals in the name of sport!
So what's worse? Killing 'Big Game' as the hunters call Wild Animals primed for hunting with a gun, or having a pack of hounds, specially trained, to tear apart foxes, deer, otters, hare, and any other of nature's creatures that takes their fancy?
THE ANSWER IS, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE AT ALL FOR KILLING THESE ANIMALS IN THE NAME OF SPORT, BY WHATEVER METHOD THEY CHOOSE.
LOVE & PEACE TO ALL EARTH'S CREATURES

WHAT RIGHT HAVE WE TO TREAT WILDLIFE THIS WAY?
by Pete & Nikki
Two news items recently grabbed our attention, which highlights our total disregard for animals, over our personal desire to own, or control everything around us...
The first concerns penguins, and our desire to keep them in captivity, for our own personal amusement, at the expense of the birds themselves...

LET'S BRING ABOUT A NEW UNDERSTANDING OF THE EARTH'S INFINATE VARIETY, - AND LEAVE NATURE TO GET ON WITH IT'S EXISTENCE...

THE CURSE OF THE LUMINOUS CATS!
If you thought Frankenstien was a work of fiction, then think again! In their search for a cure for AIDS, scientists at The Mayo Clinic in California have managed to introduce a jellyfish gene into a cat egg cell, to produce luminous cats!
IT IS TIME TO PUT A STOP TO THIS MADNESS.
