Remembrance Day For Animals In War Too!

Remembrance Day For Animals In War Too!

Tens of thousands of animals have died during wars and being use as weapons of war. Domestic animals include dogs, pigs, oxen, camels, and horses. Elephants, pigeons, and rats were also used for transport and bomb detection. Dolphins and sea lions are presently used by the military. Belugas were kept in pens at Nanoose Bay!

Military Experiments

In addition to Canadian military bases, there are universities and hospitals also conducting experiments. In the 80s Lifeforce exposed US military funded experiments at the University of Western Ontario. Live monkeys were used in laser weapon tests on their eyes.

The Canadian military continues using thousands of live animals for testing chemical-weapons and other military purposes.

In 2019, two Chinese biologists were removed from the Winnipeg-based National Microbiology Lab (NML) and stripped of their security clearance. The case raised the possibility of Chinese espionage. It's a matter of record that the couple shared information and virus samples from the Canadian lab with the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Animals were infected with viruses.

In Memory of Forgotten Victims

Lifeforce believes that all people and animals should have rights for their protection and freedom. Musicians, artists, and others formed a very powerful peace movement against racism and wars in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Sadly, ongoing wars and the violence affecting all life continue.

All human races have carried on with war crimes for centuries. And this violence and killing of people and animals continue today! Will it ever end? Will the human species ever live together in peace with different beliefs for the wars to end?

A new peace movement for all life is desperately in need. This time “peace” movements must include animal rights and oppose speciesism. The opposition to ending eating animals, experimenting on animals and abusive so called “entertainment” with animals is part of the centuries long wars on animals. While it is appears to be “human nature” it is violence towards nature and fellow sentient beings with whom we share this planet.
