The last 2 weeks have been stressful and hectic (to say the least), but I have decided to wait until today to write an update on the rabbit campaign.
First of all, I wanna thank everybody for the engagement. You guys are awesome! and we would not have gathered 3620 signatures if it wasn't because each of you signed it and shared it all through social media.
With that said, I sadly have to report that neither MoMA or Anne Imhof acknowledged my petition or emails.
However, MoMA stopped advertising the show.
This may have been one battle that was not entirely successful, but the war is not yet over, and each one of this battles only make us stronger to show the world that every animal deserves respect.
In the meantime:
USE YOUR CONSUMER POWER TO BOYCOTT ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR
There are currently two other big campaigns regarding animal rights:
- Rabbit Meat consumption: prefer stores, restaurants and media that do not endorse the consumptions of pets.
- Cruelty Free testing: Prefer items that are cruelty free certified.
I waited until today to post this update for mainly two reason:
- I wanted to give MoMA enough time to act.
- February 5th, but 4 years ago, my bunnies were born, right here in the middle of my living room after I rescued a pregnant bunny who was being beaten at a pet store.
My rabbits were the closest I've been to motherhood, and the most beautiful experience I ever had. Even when they are now in heaven, I keep the memories of them being soft, adorable and fragile close to my heart and present in my life.
For some people rabbits are a meal, an animal or just a critter, and they might be right; but what they represented in my life was way more than that. They were my companions through years of loneliness and cuddly listeners in times of hardship.This one and all of my animal rights activism is in their memory.
RIP Choco, Nahuel, Papillon & Blackbeard.
