We at Raise Ur Paw, a Canadian Federally Incorporated Not-For-Profit, are joining along with countless others in protest over the charges that were laid upon Anita Krajnc -- and we truly hope that you will assist and be a voice too.
For those of you who don't know the story - Krajnc, an animal angel and co-founder of "Toronto Pig Save" is charged with mischief and faces jail time or maximum of $5,000 fine for providing water to innocent pigs within a tractor-trailer as they were heading to Fearman's Pork Inc. in Burlington on June 22, 2015.
With her trial starting today (Aug. 24th, 2016), her lawyers and countless individuals from all over stood by her in support, and not just around the courtroom, but through social media as well -- even doing the hashtag #PigTrial, which was already seen trending.
To us as animal activists and individulas of humanity, we find the whole idea and scenerio that Anita is facing, is not only ridiculous, but unspeakable as well -- it shows that our legal system desperately needs to be questioned, who is it that our justice system truly protects and shows individuals that doing the right and humane thing could lead to consequences instead of heroism, in which individuals that care should receive.
We must also acknowledge the fact that there was absolutely no harm done, sure it may have upset the company in which uses these defenseless animals as meat etc, or make profit of the deaths of these lives, but does that really come before helping a life in need, or giving a gesture of humanity, in which Anita acted upon by giving an innocent life in need a mere drink of water -- a life that was confined inside an over-heated vehicle with countless others? She made a stand and showed that life came first - before profit, before humanity, and before the demands of those who make profit off and those who consume these beloved animals.
Our country has set laws into place to protect the welfare and well-being of life, from harm, cruelty, abuse and inhumane actions -- and yet those who believe strongly in the rights and welfare of animals , and do their active parts to fulfill and achieve that goal are being punished, that is truly a heartbreaking shame -- especially when there are so many companies, industries etc that are continuously getting away with their crimes of cruelty because it is a so-called "benefit to humans" (animal testing, fur fashion, food, entertainment, trophy hunting and many others)
We need to show the Governments and the World that COMPASSION IS NOT A CRIME, and share Anita's story and stand by her side during this time -- united we stand in making a difference, because after all if we don't, who will!
I STAND BY ANITA... WILL YOU?
