Earthlings

EARTHLINGS is a feature length documentary about humanity’s absolute dependence on animals (for pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and scientific research) but also illustrates our complete disrespect for these so-called “non-human providers.”

    A great effort in highlighting the trauma and pain an animal goes through and how human beings lead life with such impunity.

    Hats off to your effort.

    Thanks

    A informative and Eye-opener documentary. All of us should realise that we are digging our own graves in which we will all eventually perish.

    “Vasudev Kutumbakam” is our only option.

    I had to stop it. I couldn’t stop crying. 20 min. were enough for me to get the message of the documentary.

    I’ll be at the local Furrier this Christmas wearing an oversized tshirt with the picture of that poor “skinned alive” animal on the front.  If I had KNOWN this I would NEVER have wanted a fur coat.  

    Thank you for opening my eyes.

    Is there a current movement to put into place regulations which would require all personnel handling animals for any purpose to have a License?  I see that much of the abuse occurs where employees are probably minimum wage workers.  If a person has something to lose, maybe they will act differently.

      Well depending on where you live part of the problem is funds to police as well, if you have licences you need someone to check those licences, should come from a meat tax. You can lobby for stronger welfare laws, but more easily you can stop buying meat and animal products, and ask your friends to do the same.

    thank you for making this movie/documentary.
    it’s a real eye-opener
    even though I already knew a lot about animal-abuse, I have been crying the whole movie and now I feel exhausted but I had to see it, till the end.
    every human should see this.

    I will talk about this movie, and spread the word
    “we are earthlings, we are ALL earthlings”

    thank you

    Everyone needs to watch this.
    There is no tolerance by humans for slaughtering/attacking fellow humans so why is it overlooked by society because these are simply “animals”?
    It’s almost funny how if an animal attacks a human they are “put down” but it’s no big deal for a human to attack an animal. I don’t care who you are or how low you are paid for these jobs, the lack of respect and empathy towards another species is disheartening.
    The human race has become a disgrace in its trek for superiority over all other living beings.
    As stated in the documentary “There are more chickens consumed in America in 1 day than in the entire year of 1930.” No wonder people have gotten so fat.
    It would be interesting to see the tables turned even for a day and have a “Human Slaughter/Euthanasia House” where animals can have their way with us.
    Imagine that.

    I hope someone develops a virus that will irradicate all humans. Humans must die, all of us.
