yeah, so I actually just watched this a few days ago, I couldn't watch parts of it, and the part where they throw that dog in with the garbage just broke my heart. It's very graphic and informative, and pretty full on.
My boyfriend couldn't watch it, but he will still eat cheese and meat without a care in the world. Doesn't really make sense to me!
I was crying a lot when I first saw it. That scene turned me into a wailing, swearing heap on the floor. Before earthlings I was vegetarian. Afterward I came to the conclusion that a vegan lifestyle is the logical and right thing to do.
My bf couldn't watch all of it either.

Vegan freak! That's a good effort. How do you get people to watch it? Everyone just ignores me when I mention it (and i'm not even pushy about it). Boyfriend refuses to watch it. No one I know is willing to change or even care. x_X It is very depressing actually.

Same problem here. It's so frustrating.

I'm with Vegan Freak - I've showed loads of people now.

I'm firm, but not too pushy about my stance on animal rights. I find the best way to do it is to lend them the DVD and every couple of days ask them "have you watched Earthlings yet?". Eventually most give in and watch the first bit, turn it off and have a cry to me how bad it is. That's when I say to them "You are causing what you were watching, don't hide from the truth, the animals can't hide from your bad choices, finish watching it" (something along those lines usually works.

It has converted a few of my friends veg, and one a raving vegan (he's even more vocal about veganism than I am!)
happy

Being veg for 25 years has been terrific, however I have always buried my head in the sand not wanting to look at graphic pictures and documentaries of the atrocities committed to animals. Today I watched the trailer of EARTHLINGS knowing full well that it would haunt me, that I would cry, I would be angry and disliking of humanity and  that I would continue to question the spiritual teachings that there is perfect order on earth and that there is an all encompassing loving source/creator/god???

How could a species develop into what humans have become? Manipulating, controlling, exploiting, insanely cruel, barbaric and just down right totally ignorant?

I am now glad that I have managed to watch the trailer (not so sure about watching the full film tho) so that I can continue to make every choice I make as cruelty free as possible.

Thank you for making this available as I truly know that the majority of the population have no idea or care at all as to what goes on.

Everyday I become more appalled at our treatment of the world's animals. My heart aches for these creatures & the pain they go through. I didn't even make it through the trailer before breaking down..... sad
