This tights producer loves to stir controvercy with their ads. Their latest one exploits the motive of a battered wife, a real woman whose come out of her marital suffering made the national news last year. Her aggressive husband, a local council member, has been sentenced to 2 years. Fight for yourself. Like I did!
An add designed for the Krakow Church was rejected by it after a debate. Its aim was to promote the 20th Day of Islam in Catholic Church but mosques seemed too numerous, creating the impression of overwhelming domination.
I don't agree with comparing the slaughter of animals with the slaughter of people I'm afraid. It's not that I don't recognise animal suffering, and I suppose I am putting people above animals in this context, but I feel it is wrong to draw this type of comaprison. It makes me wonder if Sylwia Spurek is just jumping on the bandwagon and courting controversy for her own ends. The work is not hers, it's by an Australian artist, so all she has done is to share someone else's work. Is she an ardent animal rights campaigner? What is your opinion on this?
Hmm, on the one hand, I feel that juxtaposing animal and human suffering isn`t fair. On the other hand, some people feel strong for animal rights and they see how ordinary appeals don`t work so they resort to drastic methods. I can understand it.
I don't to be honest. I feel people like this are very misguided. Do they not get their kids vaccinated then because the vaccines were trialled on animals first? There is no comparison between people that were sent to the gas chambers and animals being slaughtered.
I can imagine those animal rights activists feel the animal and human suffering is equal.
I'm sure they do and it's not that I don't sympathise, I am an animal lover too. Yes, Spurek used her position and got the point she was making across, but I do feel that some might find that picture highly offensive. Descendants of those sent to the gas chambers for example.

I said it here and there a few times: individual Jews who can prove their ancestors had property in pre-war or postwar Poland MUST be compensated fairly. And such rulings have been issued many times so far.
On the other hand, I fully reject mass compensation paid to Jewish organisations like Congress of Am Jews etc. Those Jews, waiting to hug 60 billion $ from Poland, have been exerting pressure on AM government and Congress to force Poland to pay. Guys, forget it.
Yes, true. But, the case is very complicated. E.g., Amid criticism of her actions on the eve of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Spurek defended them by quoting “the Jewish Nobel laurate Isaac Bashevis Singer,” as she described him, who once wrote that: “In their behavior toward creatures, all people are Nazis.”
She added about the painting: “Does this art delight me? No, it scares me how people treat other animals and I think that every intelligent person should understand the message of this artist.
Currently, Spurek is working on a project which will save animals and Earth`s climate by limiting the consumption of meat. She seems really serious about it.
Today during extra-ordinary plenary session Ursula von der Leyen, the President of the European Commission presented the European Green Deal.
This is my statement concerning her speech. ✌️
The European Green Deal presented by the Commission to the MEPs in an extraordinary plenary session in Brussels today lacks necessary measures to tackle some key factors behind the climate crisis.
One area that has not been addressed properly is industrial farming – a practice that is growing and intensifying in Europe. Factory farms produce staggering quantities of waste, pollute our land, air and water, and massively contribute to climate change. It is widely known that factory farming is an unsustainable method of raising animals – and one that is not compatible with the safe and wholesome food supply that the European Green Deal promised. Limiting the over-consumption of meat and dairy products is also essential to ward off climate crisis. Therefore, the absence of policies to stop industrial farming or to promote a shift towards plant-based diets is alarming.
When designing a fair, healthy and environmentally friendly food system, the EU must tackle the overconsumption of meat and dairy products and factory farms. We need a change in dietary patterns and farming practices. Without such change, the headline objective behind the new environmental law cannot be achieved. We need concrete plan and actions to stop this destructive, wasteful, inefficient and cruel system.
