The Corona Virus (CV)
Comments From The Media
"Animal products are the main cause of food poisoning and they also cause and spread diseases, but we are not told to change our diet and improve our health - due to financial interests - even during an epidemic like bird flu, pig flu, CV, Ebola, SARS, etc. Today, in the middle of a ‘pandemic’, an MP has even lied and stated that we must eat meat in preference to plant foods, stating that meat eating is not harmful to human health or the environment. This is the exact opposite of the truth. They are always faithful to the lucrative food industry and drugs industry in which they have investments and strong links. Forget washing your hands and wearing ineffective masks if you are still going to continue to eat diseased animal products as advised by govt ‘health experts’."

"Human health and the Planet’s health are linked. They are both in our hands alone"
"XR member:- “A corona virus pandemic has now been declared by govts and media, while they still refuse to declare mass extinction through pollution to be a global emergency. Is an engineered pandemic their way of responding to mass global protest? Plus a way to depopulate? Are the following words REALLY Greta’s? Maybe she never even said them! Or have they put words into her mouth through suggestion and clever questioning? They are keen to quote these words from Twitter, while they often fail to quote Greta’s other important words of truth. Greta’s words below are EXACTLY what govts would want such a high profile person to say, tailored exactly to their agenda. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_Guidestones”
UK news on 19/3/20 - Emergency Coronavirus Bill
"Three ways the government could restrict our freedoms under its emergency coronavirus bill - Dozens of measures have been proposed in the bill, with health secretary Matt Hancock saying they are “proportionate to the threat we face”. They will last for up to two years if and when the bill becomes law. It is expected to be fast-tracked through Parliament next week."
"If the virus was real, they would have given everyone a mask by now, or get you to buy one, and enforced the wearing of masks, but instead they have stopped crucial XR meetings and XR protests etc."
"99% of food poisoning and parasites come from animal products."
"70% of people in UK gave up beef in the first week of CJD - mad cow disease - being announced in the media. (Mad human disease!)."
"SARS, Ebola, Corona virus, swine flu, bird flu, etc, are caused and spread by handling and eating animal products, especially exotic meats (crocodile, ostrich, kangaroo, etc), plus by slaughterhouses, meat markets, and butchers."
"Why are shops, restaurants, and bars, not banned from selling exotic meat? Why are meat markets, slaughterhouses, and butchers, still open? - while football matches etc are cancelled. Vital XR events cancelled. The threat of banning large gatherings."
"Do you know ANYONE who has the Corona Virus? Does it even exist? Why are they putting on a big show?"
V for Vendetta - Natalie Portman - 2006 - trailer - very good film:-
I want to ask a question, Dominic. I don't care if you answer me or not. I just want to say this aloud... The question I want to ask is about St Mary's and Three Waters. The question that's kept me up for the last 24 hours, the question I have to ask, is: What if the worst, the most horrifying, biological attack in this country's history was not the work of religious extremists?
Well, I don't understand. We know it was. They were caught. They confessed.
And they were executed, I know. And maybe that's really what happened. But I see this chain of events, these coincidences... and I have to ask: What if that isn't what happened? What if someone else unleashed that virus? What if someone else killed all those people? Would you really want to know who it was?
Even if it was someone working for this government? That's my question. If our own government was responsible for what happened at St Mary's and Three Waters... if our own government was responsible for the deaths of almost a hundred thousand people... would you really want to know?

Would people really want to know?

From FB -
"Extinction Rebellion (XR) has cancelled a major protest planned for May 2020 in London, UK, because they are gullible enough to believe the corrupt global govts’ lie machine, the media"
From FB -
"XR have been demanding a declaration of a global climate emergency and urgent action but have been ignored, attacked, and arrested en masse, for over 1.5 years, yet govts have managed to brainwash 7.5 billion people in just a few weeks about the non-existent CV and create mass obsessive paranoia, mass engineered fear, and mass compliance. Fear has always been used to manipulate and control the wilfully ignorant masses. We must question their motives every time. No one seems to know anyone who has any CV symptoms! Whatever their motives, profit is always one of the factors"
"Pollution is causing 100,000 species to go extinct annually! That’s 300 species a day!"
"Resources are running out!"
"We have only 12 months to take immediate gigantic action en masse according to the UN. Other researchers have given us only a few years. With selfless love and dynamic action, there is hope."
"No one must fool themselves and hide behind the words “Conspiracy theory!” every time uncomfortable facts are presented to them."
"Genuine truth seekers do not allow fear, emotions, and uncontrolled imagination, to distract them."
"The human race no longer has the time to allow fear-driven denial to harm the Planet, animals, Sacred Nature, and our future survival."
"We are destroying this beautiful Planet and all life because the human heart has closed, but it can open today, and there is hope, provided we unite and take massive compassionate action."
"Communication, cooperation, and compassion for all sentient beings, are vital."
"If schools are being closed and large crowds and protests are being banned due to CV, does that mean we get clean public toilets for a change? No! And no dog poo on pavements and grass for a change? No!"
"If mass disease waves, which were predicted decades ago, hit this planet due to pollution and mass extinction, will councils, govts, and the media declare a state of global climate emergency and take appropriate radical action? No!"
"We get to have mass extinction, and engineered pandemics, and dog poo on pavements, and dirty toilets, all at once. And people still vote."
"Obviously, the answers to global problems do not lie in the hands of authority and corporations, but in the hearts of the masses."
"With creativity and love, we can always turn a negative into a positive."
"While schools and universities are shut, we can protest MORE!"
A strawberry nevus (hemangioma) or simply a 'strawberry' is a red birthmark named for its colour.
Man goes to the doc, with a large strawberry growing out of his head. Doc says "I'll give you some cream to put on it"
"Some years ago, when mad cow disease (Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease - CJD) (mad human disease!) was rife, 70% of people gave up beef within one week of it being in the media. Journalists stated that ‘food industry greed and cruelty to animals have repercussions on everyone’."
The Corona Virus
From FB -
"The masses are manipulated and controlled by constant engineered fear. Ridiculous media lies and exaggerations abound about the Corona Virus. What are they up to now?! Are they blocking travel and communication due to the riots and politics in China and other countries just to cover the horrendous crimes of the authorities?!"
"Do they plan mass forced ‘medication’? Do they plan to impose unnecessary limitations upon the masses? Are the Corona Virus disease rates and death rates total fabrication? Are people who have other diseases being mis-diagnosed as having the corona virus? Are doctors and researchers etc being tricked and misled too? Whether the Corona virus is a hoax created for social, financial, and political manipulation, and big pharma profit, or not, we must not let them stop our vital mass protests using a ‘virus’ as an excuse."
"Masks are not effective protection against germs and some pollution, but the media infers they are. Apart from social habit and copying, the Chinese and Japanese have many cultural reasons, unrelated to germs, for wearing masks. Not wanting to communicate or be seen is one reason, and this may be understandable in suppressed and stressed populations."
"Strengthening the immune system helps to protects us against all illnesses. Eliminate toxins and nutritional deficiencies by eating more raw organic plant foods. Decide to be happy. Think positive. Listen to uplifting music. Get more sunlight, daylight, fresh air, and exercise in Nature. When your cells are saturated with organic minerals, inorganic and radioactive minerals are not absorbed. When we are saturated with peaceful and positive thoughts and love, outside negativity is counteracted."
"If humans had respect for animals, had chosen veganism, and had eliminated slaughterhouses, factory farms, vivisection laboratories, and all other types of animal exploitation, we would not have dangerous diseases like SARS, Ebola, Corona virus, swine flu, bird flu, and many other diseases and global problems."
"If the corrupt food system alone is not to blame, then is it genetic manipulation and the creation of viruses etc?"
"Due to the greed of the farming and food industry, big pharma, and the govt, etc, with Ebola, swine flu, and avian flu, etc, no one is told to stop eating meat, which is crazy! Same with the corona virus which is said to come from eating bats and snakes."
"China is very cruel to animals and will eat anything that moves. All countries exploit animals, and we are now suffering the repercussions."
"Govts are faithful to both the rich drugs/vivisection industry and the meat industry, so they will not tell you to stop eating meat or to stop using big pharma products, even when unsafe and ineffective. Profit comes before animals, humans, and the Planet, every time!"
"The power of change is within OUR hands alone."
"When everyone opens their hearts, we will find simple answers to all man-made global problems. Is suffering the only thing that will open people’s hearts?! Will change come too late?! It is already too late for all the extinct species."
Palestine Land Day. Sat 28 Mar 2020, 12-1pm, Town Hall, Sheffield S1 2HH. A rally to mark the time in 1976 when Israeli police shot and killed six Palestinian citizens of Israel as they were protesting the Israeli government’s expropriation of thousands of acres of Palestinian land. Since then, March 30th is commemorated as Land Day, an important event in the Palestinian collective narrative. The Great March of Return was launched in Gazaon March 30th 2018, as a powerful reminder to the world that Palestinian resistance to Israeli colonisation and sumud (steadfastness) will continue until the refugees’ right of return is recognized.

"It is my view that the vegetarian manner of living, by its purely physical effect on the human temperament, would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind"
Albert Einstein - 1879 - 1955 - German. Scientist, vegetarian.
"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle"
"Unless we open our hearts to all sentient beings, the human race will not survive. Demand inner change, not of others, but of self. Stop hunting, slaughter for food, and vivisection, if you want to save the planet. Karma is. If such a thing as an enlightened government existed, it would first ask YOU to be responsible and to change your inner and outer life, open your heart, and choose a simple cruelty-free lifestyle. Veganism, by definition, opposes ALL animal cruelty and killing. It’s our responsibility, as the majority, to ensure cooperation, unity, and harmony, through kindness, bravery, and love, between all individuals, groups, corporations, businesses, and all authority, etc."
Sun Forest - Poet, inventor, vegan
"To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless"
Gilbert Keith Chesterton - 1874 - 1936 - English. Writer, philosopher, lay theologian, literary and art critic, vegetarian.
“The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried”
Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874 - 1936)
"All you need is Love"
The Beatles (All vegetarian)
"Love is the answer"
"The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed"
"Where can we go to find God if we cannot see Him in our own hearts and in every living being"
Swami Vivekananda - 1863 - 1902 - Indian - Hindu monk
"A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive"
Albert Einstein, 1954.
"The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the centre of true religiousness"
Albert Einstein, ‘The Merging of Spirit and Science’.
"Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace"
Albert Schweitzer - 1875 - 1965 - French - Nobel Peace Prize winner, philosopher, theologian, organist, writer, humanitarian, physician, vegetarian.
"Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight"
"The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality"
Arthur Schopenhauer – 1788 - 1860 - German. Philosopher.
"The unpardonable forgetfulness in which the lower animals have hitherto been left by the moralists of Europe is well known. It is pretended that the beasts have no rights. They persuade themselves that our conduct in regard to them has nothing to do with morals or (to speak the language of their morality), that we have no duties towards animals; a doctrine revolting, gross, and barbarous"
"I know of no more beautiful prayer than that which the Hindus of old used in closing their public spectacles. It was: 'May all that have life be delivered from suffering!'"
Arthur Schopenhauer - From ‘On the Basis of Morality’
"Thus, because Christian morality leaves animals out of account ..., they are at once outlawed in philosophical morals; they are mere ‘things’, mere ‘means’ to any ends whatsoever. They can therefore be used for vivisection, hunting, coursing, bullfights and horse racing, and can be whipped to death as they struggle along with heavy carts of stone. Shame on such a morality that is worthy of pariahs, chandalas and mlechchhas, and that fails to recognize the eternal essence that exists in every living thing, and shines forth with inscrutable significance from all eyes that see the sun!"
The Church and/or the Bible has stated that animals, women, and black people have no soul. Do they even know what a soul is?
"Since compassion for animals is so intimately associated with goodness of character, it may be confidently asserted that whoever is cruel to animals cannot be a good man"
"The world is not a piece of machinery and animals are not articles manufactured for our use"
"The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man"
Charles Darwin - 1809 - 1882 - English - Naturalist, geologist, biologist
"Ethically they had arrived at the conclusion that man's supremacy over lower animals meant not that the former should prey upon the latter, but that the higher should protect the lower, and that there should be mutual aid between the two as between man and man. They had also brought out the truth that man eats not for enjoyment but to live"
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi - 1869 - 1948 - Indian - Lawyer, anti-colonialist, political ethicist, civil rights campaigner, philosopher, vegetarian.
"Vivisection is the blackest of all the black crimes that man is at present committing against God and his fair creation. It ill becomes us to invoke in our daily prayers the blessings of God, the Compassionate, if we in turn will not practice elementary compassion towards our fellow creatures"
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated"
"I choose not to make a graveyard of my body for the rotting corpses of dead animals"
George Bernard Shaw - 1856 - 1950 - Irish - Playwright, critic, polemicist, political activist, vegetarian.
"A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral"
Leo Tolstoy - 1828 - 1910 - Russian - Author, vegetarian.
"Kindness is incompatible with steak"
"Vegetarianism, proclaimed in ancient times, was dormant for a long time, but nowadays it wins more and more supporters every year and every hour, and soon there will come a time when they will all end simultaneously: hunting, vivisection and, most importantly, killing for the sake of taste"
"What I think about vivisection is that if people admit that they have the right to take or endanger the life of living beings for the benefit of many, there will be no limit for their cruelty"
"I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men"
Leonardo da Vinci - 1452 - 1519 - Italian - Artist, inventor, architect, scientist, musician, mathematician, engineer, writer, geologist, astronomer, biologist, botanist, paleontologist, cartographer, vegetarian.
"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well being of a person or animal is at stake"
Martin Luther King Jr - 1929 - 1968 - American - Christian minister, activist, spokesperson and leader in the Civil Rights Movement, vegetarian.
"The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents combined. If beef is your idea of “real food for real people” you'd better live real close to a real good hospital"
Dr. Neal D. Barnard - Born 1953 - American - Author, clinical researcher, founding president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, vegan.
"If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian"
Sir Paul McCartney - Born 1942 - English - Singer-songwriter of The Beatles, vegan (All four Beatles were vegetarian/vegan).
"For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seeds of murder and pain cannot reap the joy of love"
Pythagoras - 570 - 495 BC - Greek. Philosopher, writer of political and religious teachings, astronomer, mathematician, scientist, vegetarian.
"I made the choice to be vegan because I will not eat, or wear, or use, anything that could have an emotional response to its death or captivity. I can well imagine what that must feel like for our non-human friends - the fear, the terror, the pain - and I will not cause such suffering to a fellow living being"
Rai Aren - Canadian - Sci-fi authoress, vegan.
"You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity"
Ralph Waldo Emerson - 1803 -1882 - American. Writer, lecturer, philosopher, poet, vegetarian.
"By eating meat we share the responsibility of climate change, the destruction of our forests, and the poisoning of our air and water. The simple act of becoming a vegetarian will make a difference in the health of our planet"
Thich Nhat Hanh - Born 1926 - Vietnamese. Zen Buddhist monk, global spiritual leader, poet, peace activist, a pioneering teacher on mindfulness, global ethics and peace, vegan.
"Being vegetarian here also means that we do not consume dairy and egg products, because they are products of the meat industry. If we stop consuming, they will stop producing. Only collective awakening can create enough determination for action"
Thich Nhat Hanh.
"Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages"
Thomas Alva Edison - 1847 - 1931 - American. Inventor, businessman, vegetarian.
