I was in the Newspaper New Zealand | Activism

I was contacted last year by a reporter for the Ashburton Guardian in regards to some animal farming issues that were exposed on the main stream media.

I was reluctant at first to contribute for a number of reasons however I changed my mind. I am unsure as to who gave her my name to speak to about this as there are thousands who have similar views to my own.

I lived in the area for a couple of years as a teenager and during that time I worked in a number of different jobs. The Ashburton District has a lot of farming and one of those jobs was in the dairy industry on farms.

I sat down with the reporter last month to be interviewed and the piece was published last week. The section was to be about animal welfare and included interviews with people from SAFE and MPI as well. My piece was to focus on the consumer perspective.

The reporter was suppose to email me the piece on me before it was published, however their collages went ahead and published it while they were away. Causing some spelling mistakes in my name and disappointing key points. But overall I am happy with it.

Many people that are unbiased on the matter have said it was quite neutral but still important. I can’t leave a link of the article because it requires a paid subscription to be read online.

Let me know if you want to read it in more depth and I could send you a scanned copy of it.

  • Respect and prudence
    Humanity is divided because of the bankruptcy of thought that points out faults in the other and does not recognize their own. Each requires the authority to teach the truth, but all teach only disrespect, division, and exclusion. They want to impose their own mistaken conclusions that serve the most diverse purposes, many of which are obscure. They can not understand one another simply because they are embedded in an outdated conception which, although served for some time, has totally lost its force and utility, not only in relation to religion but also in the philosophical and scientific fields. Nature has changed phase. Since 1935 we have lived the development phase of reasoning. What we need is to develop it by reading the Universe Books in Disenchantment. Only then can we evolve and return to our true natural. There is no other way but this. Information on the site: http://www.culturaracional.net.br
