Animalist no. 207

„We need to remember that all other animals have the same right to be here and not to be abused as any human being.” – David Attenborough

Try vegan Easter!

We invited everyone to prepare vegan ham, scrambled eggs, Croatian Easter bread (pinca), homemade pasta (mlinci), French salad, as well as various Easter cakes this Easter, in order to help animals, the environment, and to better their own health. We also suggested decorating wooden eggs instead of real ones, as well as not buying rabbits and other animals, rather to adopt them if they have the possibilities and desire to do so. Share these vegan Easter recipes.

A chained dog is not an anti-burglary alarm

The campaign “For Croatia without chained dogs” received the support of many institutions and celebrities, and among them is the popular singer and radio host Saša Lozar, who pointed out in the video that dogs must not be alarm devices. Apart from the fact that it is inadmissible to torture an animal and it is absurd to keep a dog on a chain to guard something, it is not even profitable. No one needs to have a dog as a part of their family, but anyone who decides to take care of a dog should take responsibility and provide it with adequate living conditions.

Joint swelling and bloody udders – all according to regulations

We reacted to the news that on a farm in Slavonia, cows are being exploited to the extreme, i.e. to their death. In relation to animals that humans exploit to obtain meat, milk and eggs, the normalization of the abnormal occurs and it is not excessive to compare them with animal concentration camps. Daily extraction of as much as 50 liters of milk from their purulent and bloody udders, even though the calf would suckle three to five liters, has nothing to do with nature giving them milk for their children, as well as it gives us for ours. We pointed to the indescribable cruelty of their children going to the slaughterhouse just so humans could have their milk.

Influencers prepare meat for World MeatOut Day

On the occasion of the World MeatOut Day, which is celebrated on March 20th, famous Croatian influencers and excellent vegan cooks, Marie Wasler and Nataša Rajčević, showed us ways plant-based meat can be prepared and told us how life without animal meat has improved their lives, as well as lives of thousands of their online followers. In an interesting and educational workshop, which you can watch here, Marie and Nataša prepared various plant substitutes for meat that can be found on the Croatian market. Through their experience of veganism, they advised those interested in a vegan diet and lifestyle change.

No meat, milk and eggs to get to optimal weight

On the occasion of the Croatian Obesity Awareness Day, we reminded that in Croatia every other person over the age of 18 is overweight, and that every third child at the age of eight is obese. We pointed out that research proves that a vegan diet can prevent and treat heart disease, colon and lung cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, kidney failure, hypertension, obesity and a host of other diseases. Obesity and other diseases, as well as premature death, can be prevented by a varied diet of fruits, vegetables, legumes, cereals, seeds and nuts that provide all the nutrients for optimal health.
