Believe Victims



Believe victims! It’s that simple. Stop throwing accusations at the victim when you have no idea what they have been through. Living in a white male dominated society when you are anyone other than a white male can not be easy. So if you feel sexual misconduct must be reported immediately ask yourself who are the victims to report it to. The same white males creating most of the crimes, are the same white males the crimes have to be reported to.

What can white males do? First admit your faults. Second when you hear, “well everyone did it at that age” step up and say, “No, everyone has not nor would do that.” We all know who they, we all know where they associate with their low minded friends. Call ‘em out.

Veganism is not a one way street just for the liberation of animals. Veganism is an ethic that uplifts everyone and places our responsibilities on a higher plane. Do good for others, for yourself. #vegan #animalliberation #humanliberation #liberation #totalliberation

Photo of a foot found inside a poultry crate from kaporos ritual. With all their might they hold on to what little they know of home, even if it tears their body to pieces.

The human ego is something you rarely see in the animal kingdom. Greed has lead to the demise of so many great things in this world, including the world itself. We often feel we are helping when we are only lessening the contribution to our own demise. Nothing short of a total apocalypse can save us now. As much as that may be a nihilist approach it is also an honest one. We create corporations with hopes of change, yet they are profit based corporations none the less. Non profit, 501c3, whatever you want to call it that makes you feel good about yourself and allows donors a tax break it is still part of the problem. Equally communities that berate and badger those with the same goals are only walking their movement backwards in the name of self righteousness. Critical thought is gone. What can drive attention and donations leads the way.

Our demise has been brought on by ourselves. #endchickensaskaporos #vegan #govegan #demise #nihilist dontbuywhileothersdiefoot1.jpgfoot2.jpgfoot3.jpg

In the 12 years that i’ve been rescuing kaporos birds I have seen a lot of changes. As the vegan and animal loving community joins forces against the barbaric act, the more the jewish community goes underground. In 2009 50,000 chickens were estimated to be killed or used for the ritual. Now in 2018 the estimate has grown to 60,000. The past three years have driven those practicing kaporos further underground. Once out in the open on public streets; basements, backyards, private schools, guarded, and inside temporary structures have become the new locations for the ritual. Still the birds die for absolutely no reason. Thankful to have rescued and now care for these 100 birds.Their personalities are growing, and watching their natural instincts come alive is fascinating. For them to have any natural abilities with what they have experienced and how their bodies have been modified is amazing.

If you would like to join us in ending this as we continue to rescue chickens from this barbaric act, as well as aiding in the care of these chickens; please share the link in bio.

Every year there are three rituals held just weeks apart. The first to occur is eid al-adha which is the celebration of sacrifice. The sacrifice celebrated is typically of a goat. In New York City alone 100’s of goats are sacrificed in the halal tradition and often thrown in the trash. The second sadistic ritual involving sacrifice is kaporos. This is practiced by hasidics who hold a chicken by their wings and spin them over their head three times with the belief that the chicken will absorb their sins. Anyone with an education knows no sacrifice of life will bring about anything good. The third is the most sadistic and the very least of those protest. Santoria is practiced in the woods and hidden areas of the five boroughs. It involves chickens, turtles, fish, and just about any animal imaginable, but mostly birds.

Why is it the kaporos ritual is so heavily protested yet the eid al-adha is not? The simple reason is where it is practiced. As these rituals go underground it is becoming more difficult to expose and stop them. eid al-adha has been practiced in basements and the back rooms of kill markets for decades with very little interruption from protestors. kaporos on the other hand is practiced in the open, on the streets and sidewalks and often promoted with signs and banners to direct people to the ritual.

The past three years as protesting has picked up it has become more difficult to liberate chickens from kaporos. While on the surface this may appear as a positive, it may not be. This year especially kaporos rituals were practiced in private alleys, guarded, in basements, and with wooden structures guarding the chickens. Additionally more chickens are being used and taken to many more locations than normal. It was much easier to find many more locations this year than in the past decade. Yet much more difficult to get to the birds.

This has been the thinking of those practicing eid al-adha as they do not wish to be seen, disturbed, protested, and more importantly they do not wish their ignorance to be exposed. The new kids are enjoying their freedom. #liberation #animalliberation #sanctuary #chickensofinstagram #kaporos #rescue #vegan #govegan #veganstraightedge #fortheanimals #friendsnotfood #judaism #hasidic #ritual #sacrifice #animalcruelty #animalabuse #save #brooklyn #brooklynvegan #dontbuywhileothersdie #eidaladha #goats #sadistic #realsanctuarymovement #barbaric #hasidswithchickens #stormwatch

No Excuse


When, as concerned animal lovers, we claim no religion would allow the barbaric acts of chicken torture for kaporos, we are actually correct in that this is not a religious tradition. Giving them the religious excuse grants them permission to break countless laws under the guise of religious freedoms. The fact is this is not religion. In no religious text is there mention of the use of chickens for kaporos. This barbaric act is carried out only for the sake of tradition which has been passed down from one rabbi to the next. Hasidic people are a very well read group of people. Yet they must read the simple prayers of kaporos from a laminated piece of paper. Proving that this is not inherent to their religion, but only an archaic practice of tradition.

If we want to see this end we have several avenues to explore.

First we can make efforts to shut down all live markets. At the very least, the delivery of live animals should be restricted to only places licensed to slaughter animals, and not just dumped on the streets. Second we can easily prove, as many rabbis have stepped forward to admit, this is not a religious practice. This is a tradition that is practiced by a sect of a religious group, but not part of that religion. Third hitting them financially can put an end to this. The companies that supply the chickens are well aware that the crates will be stolen. Go to a live market and examine the condition of the crates. Then go to a kaporos ritual and notice the crates are near there last use. This can also be seen in the fact that they are sending less healthy chickens that are less likely to sell.

On a side note, if you think kaporos is disgusting; research b’peh. If NYC health departments are not capable of stopping b’pec, then its a long road for the health department to stop the torture of chickens.
