A Socialist country cannot tolerate the persecution of members of the society by other members of the society. This includes the persecution of animals. The inclusion of outside elements in the society with supernatural fantasies which demand that animals be tortured in bloody ritual sacrifices is a problem which can easily be rectified by removing those outside elements. SWPE is Socialist, not liberal, we recognise the value of monoculture and the fallacy of multiculturalism. Those who set themselves apart from our ways by expressing their loyalty to other ways have no right to remain among us.
The people who practice Kosher Shechita slaughter use their expression of religious devotion to affirm their loyalty to their people and their way of life, which is a positive thing and we fully applaud this loyalty. The admirable inner devotion marks these people apart as members of an external nation and as such makes the problem of their incompatibility with our inner belief in animal welfare one which is easy to remedy. The nation of Israel welcomes all the people who are loyal to that nation and SWPE encourages all those with such loyalty to emigrate and live there. In exactly the same way as the practitioners of Shechita affirm that they have no place in our society by engaging in activities which are harmful to the animal members of our nation, so do those who practice Halal ritual sacrifice.
SWPE opposes any and all forms of cruelty. We are proud to have members who are active in the campaign against Huntingdon Life Sciences. SHAC may have capitulated to the tyranny of the government with its legislation to protect those who torture animals, but we have not. SWPE demands that HLS and all similar organisations are closed permanently and those involved with them are punished for the barbaric treatment of the innocents. Vivisection is the dissection of the living. We propose that an appropriate punishment for the scientists at HLS and for the people who fund them and use them, would be to be made to serve as human guinea pigs for the advancement of medical science. The punishment must fit the crime. Those who destroy innocent lives must reap what they sow. The same goes for all who engage in, fund or support vivisection, in every institution in this country.
The new Conservative government has promised to make a priority the repeal of laws forbidding the Ruling Class 'sport' of Fox Hunting. Fox Hunting is a sick expression of arrogant elitist brutality. The Ruling Class riders who send dogs to tear foxes to shreds consider this to be a part of their culture. Their culture is one which sees them as superior to all living creatures, including us. SWPE opposes the Repeal of the Hunting Ban and will join with others to make sure that the only 'sport' the huntsmen get is trying to escape from animal welfare activists unscathed. The goons who wear red and smear their children with the blood of the foxes they kill in the most violent and painful way they can are the people who have nothing but contempt for the Working Class. Our coming society has no place for these people or their 'sports'.
Animal cruelty comes in many forms including the government's Badger Culls and their slaughter of Buzzards, Wild Boar, Beavers, Robins, Starlings, Pine Martens, Squirrels, Geese and more. We will sabotage all attempts to slaughter our wildlife.
Animal cruelty is 'justified' by the claim that animals are inferior to people. They are not. Our animals have just as much right to live in our country as we do. City life is wrecking their habitats. We will reduce the human population by removing people who have no connection to our country. We will protect the countryside by returning the cities to the land and restoring the natural bond of land and people.
We work with all Animal Rights activists. Our Socialism is not just for the people, it is for all sentient beings who are indigenous to our country. Let the Ruling Class, the practitioners of exotic ritual slaughter and the agents of official animal murder (vivisection, culls) know that we will join with all like-minded people to stop them. This is a warning to those who are cruel and barbaric - you will be punished in the same way as you punish the innocents.
