Hi Rach

Yes it's ok to sign a petition on here, I have done so a few times before. Thank you so much for signing🙏🙏

Personally I welcome any information which enables me to make the right choices based on my health needs. I hope the European Commission sees sense and reaches the correct conclusion.

We are like minded. I totally agree re the European Commission, they really do need to see sense.

I still couldn't get it to work for me so I typed the title and person in the search engine. I'm surprised I managed to watch it asi found it very hard.

It looks like it's mainly America but the cruelty the animals suffer is immense. I know we have farmers that are very cruel in the UK as well as I've seen videos.

I hope that more and more people see cruel farming for what it is.

I'm sharing this on Facebook and hope people watch it.

Thank you for saying what the title is and by who.

It does make for very hard watching. I often have to shield myself from animal cruelty, but this video made really good points about how labelling affects what we buy.

In particular there was a sentence where animal slaughter was being discussed and instead of addressing the animal welfare side, an email regarding killing pigs was sent saying that a new way of describing was needed. Like, if you call it something else, you can detach and it doesn't feel so bad killing animals.

It really was very hard to watch but you are so right, it really did make good points on how we buy things for instance farmers calling slitting an animal across its throat processing where in fact it's slaughter.

I agree with what you are saying regarding the animal slaughter as if you say processing it doesn't sound anything like as bad. All I know is that by watching the video you can see the true extent of the animals awful living conditions and slaughtering.

Need I say more about how inhuman this is.
