Protest Censorship of Animal Abuse

https://www.facebook.com/events/286621648435635/

This is the appeal I sent to ASA and others seeking their support.

Appeal against the decision of ASA Ruling against my protest against Animal Abuse

Here is my appeal against the Decision by the Advertising Standards Authority who ruled that graphic photos of injured tortured and Killed Animals such as vivisected Dogs, prematurely induced Calves and Piglets who died in factory farms as happens in NZ and Dogs Boiled and Burned Alive are in their opinion "Offensive" and :"Harmful to the Public".

I am appealing ASA' decision for the following reasons

The proper procedures have not been followed.
There is new evidence of sufficient substance to affect the decision.
Evidence provided to the Complaints Board has been misinterpreted to the extent it has affected the decision.
The decision is against the weight of evidence.
It is in the interests of natural justice that the matter be reheard.
Again I appeal the unreasonable, unfair, biased and corrupt decision of ASA which is against Social and Natural Justice and a Breach of Human and Civil Rights.

I have had legal advice which says that ASA has failed to interpret the evidence thus it is has been misinterpreted and is against the weight of evidence therefore proper procedures have not been followed.

I have received the following advice from the Auckland Community Law Centre

No Evidence of Serious or Widespread Offence

You have asked whether your grounds for appeal should be that your signs were not offensive.
Yes: You should argue your signs did not cause serious or widespread offence.
In its decision the ASA held that your signs caused serious or widespread offence. It appears this decision was strongly influenced by the context in which the signs were published. That is , the signs were placed street side and available to be viewed by all members of the public (including vulnerable members such as children). In reaching its decision, the ASA assumed that, because of the context , members of the public would be seriously offended by the signs - or there would be widespread offence among the public.
However, there was no evidence of any complaints from the public. There was no evidence of any member of the public being seriously offended or of many members of the public being offended on any level.
The compliant was from Auckland Council only.

The ASA noted that the signs contained images of animal cruelty in a public space where they were likely to be seen by a variety of people. However, the ASA did not discuss whether images of animal cruelty in a public space (available to be seen by a variety of people) is in factoffensive.
Arguably the ASA have failed to interpret the evidence - that is they have not considered whether the content of the signs is offensive.
A simple dictionary definition of offence reveals it means to cause annoyance or resentment brought about by a perceived insult or disregard for oneself. Offensiveness is a negative inference impacting upon an individual's sense of self.
Content may be offensive where it is discriminatory or it may be offensive where it disrespectful, hurtful or lacks compassion for the feelings of another.

However, content which is provocative because it is dramatic, confrontational and upsetting is not always offensive. Especially so when such content aims to:
- portray a message of social responsibility;
- stimulate debate;
- interpret a social message; and/or
- promote a talking point for education.

The content of your signs is confrontational and upsetting - but it is not an insult or disregard for any individual's sense of self. Accordingly, there are good arguments that it is not offensive.

ASAs Decison is a Dangerous Precedent Prohibiting the Public Display of Evidence of Animal Abuse, including that committed by Auckland Council and NZ government agencies thus perpetuating the general ignorance of the Exploitation, Abuse, Torture and Killing of Animals in this Death-Dealing Country.

It is Hypocrisy for an agency of Governemnt which Sanctions, Funds and Commits Barbaric Animal Abuse as follows:

On Farms including Factory Farms where Animals are De-beaked, De-horned Castrated and Tail-docked without Anaesthesia, Male Chicks are Minced Alive, Cows are Raped ( Artificially Inseminated Without Consent), their Calves are Prematurely Induced and Clubbed to Death or Abducted and Killed at 4 days, Pigs, Chicken and Goats are kept in Filthy Cold Concrete Prisons without Light or Fresh Air or the ability to express their natural behaviours or even be healthy. Mother Pigs are kept restrained with iron bars which prevent them from even standing or turning around and cause them to develop sores from the hard concrete floors which lack straw bedding.

Most of these abuses are in Breach of the Animal Welfare Act

Vivisection "Laboratories" in Hospitals, Medical Schools, Universities, the Ministry of "Health" and the Ministry for Primary Industries.

In Council Pounds and SPCAs who Abduct Ransom and Poison to Death or Shoot Animals

Fishing, Hunting and Trapping

1080, Cyanide and Brodifacoum poisoning of Birds, including Natives, Deer, Tahr, Chamois, Possums, Rodents, Mustelids, Cattle, Sheep, Horses, Dogs, Cats,Fish, Earthworms and Insects Who Die a Slow Agonising Death over days and which poisons Air, Land and Water thus causing For est die-back

to cite ethics of which they obviously have no conception.

Anyway the whole process is obviously a Charade and not the business of any ASA. Protest is Not Advertising by any Honest Definition regardless of what Spurious legislation the Corrupt NZ government has passed n the pretense that it is. Protests have no consumers as a target, just people who have any ethics or sense of right and wrong who care to act upon the information given in protests.

Evidently the ASA and Council are Corrupt in Censoring the Exposure of Animal Abuse including that Committed by Government Departments ( MoH, MPI and DoC) and Council and Businesses which government sanctions and Countries they Trade and Accept Investment from including China, South Korea, Vietnam, Philippines and Indonesia which Hang, Skin, Boil and Burn Animals Alive.

Councils and Governeant cannot censor all images of Injured or Dead Animals and it is Corrupt to censor the Evidence of Crimes committed by the government, local and national.

There are worse sights in Butchers, Supermarkets, which sell the corpse remains of their victims and on television programmes and websites online which promote Animal Abuse in Farming, Fishing, Hunting and Facebook Pages which show and promote Punching Animals and Setting Animals Alight.

Anyone who eats Meat, Fish ,Eggs Milk and Dairy Products or uses Vaccines and Pharmaceutical Drugs, Chemicals, Soaps, Toothpastes or Cosmetics tested on Animals should be confronted by the Victims of their Selfishness and Greed.

Regarding Children they have the right to know that Animals Suffer to Produce the "Food" they eat and the Dangerous Vaccines and Pharmacuetical Drugs with whch they are Poisoned, which are harmful to their health and which are produced by Exploiting ,Abusiing and Killing Animals.

Much Harm is done to Children by feeding them an Unnatural Unhealthy Meat, Eggs and Dairy Based Diet causing Obesity, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Stroke, Arthritis, Multiple Schlerosis and Cancer.

Vaccines cause SIDS, Autism, Allergies, Auto-immune Diease and Cancer.

Pharmaceutical Drugs only mask the symptoms of Disese and have harmful ill effect often worse than the disease they fail to treat including death.

Children have the right to know the risks above and to choose an Ethical Compassionate and Healthy lifestyle by avoiding these Dangerous "foods" and procedures.

Basic Principle 4

It IS Socially Responsible to expose Animal Abuse,causes of environmental pollution and destruction including climate change, health effects from unnatural unhealthy meat egg and dairy based diets and dangerous toxic vaccines and pharmaceutical drugs.

Rule 1 Identification

It would be impossible and ridiculous for everyone who protests to sign their banners and an abuse of the right to and necessity for anonymity in countries such as NZ where the right to protest is so egregiously abused as by council and ASA. Anyway I did have a note up with my name on it which was evidently stolen by council fascists because that is the only way in which they can have got my name.

Rule 5 Offensiveness

The advice I have had from Auckland Community Law Centre given above say the photos are not offensive:

A simple dictionary definition of offence reveals it means to cause annoyance or resentment brought about by a perceived insult or disregard for oneself. Offensiveness is a negative inference impacting upon an individual's sense of self.
Content may be offensive where it is discriminatory or it may be offensive where it disrespectful, hurtful or lacks compassion for the feelings of another.

However, content which is provocative because it is dramatic, confrontational and upsetting is not always offensive. Especially so when such content aims to:
- portray a message of social responsibility;
- stimulate debate;
- interpret a social message; and/or
- promote a talking point for education.

Community standards which allow pollution from poisons including water fluoridation with Hydrofluorosilicic acid, a hazardous waste, Glyphosate, pesticides and car exhaust and animal exploitation, abuse, torture and killing could not be lower.

No one can rightly claim to be Offended by the sight of Animal Abuse; they may be disturbed in which case they can take action to stop the abuse by informing others and protesting animal abuse themselves.

It is the practice of Animal Abusers such as Farmers and Vivisecters and Corrupt Government Agencies to censor and hide the evidence of Animal Abuse with Ag-Gag Laws and with the complicity of government agencies such as ASA.

Rule 11 "Advocacy Advertising"

I answer you paragraph referring to this in your decision

The purpose of my PROTEST is obviously to PROTEST Animal Abuse; It does NOT Lack Context ; the message of each sign is necessarily concise but clear and obvious; it includes a call to action where appropriate and otherwise are to inform; the protest is widely available to the public in order to be an effective protest the "likely to offend assumption" is answered above by myself and ACLC.

It IS socially responsible to expose Animal Abuse, causes of environmental pollution and destruction including climate change, health effects from unnatural unhealthy meat egg and dairy based diets and dangerous toxic vaccines and pharmaceutical drugs. The information I give in my signs is factual, not opinions and I give websites which cite evidence backing up the statements on my signs for eg. PCRM.org:-
The Physicians' Committee for Responsible who act against the Fraud and Fallacy of Vivisection and advocate a vegan diet to prevent and cure most non-infectious disease.

  1. Section 14 of the Bill of Rights makes no mention of Advertisers and distinguishing factual information from opinion which are NOT mutually exclusive anyway.

2 My exposure of Animal Abuse is not an infringement of anyone else's Rights; it IS socially responsible in respecting the right of others to information which is censored by Corrupt Government Agencies who are in thrall to Business and by the Media who are beholden to their advertisers.

Marius Nortje has written threatening penalties unless I remove all signage including those about which they have not complained to ASA.

The new photos include some of Animals killed by 1080 and sign about the abduction, ransoming and killing of Dogs by Council which are crimes committed by the Auckland Council therefore it is corrupt and worse for them to demand removal of protests against the councils crimes.

Again, this is all in breach of my right to freedom of expression.

It is the Practice of Vivisecters, Farmers and Corrupt Government
Agencies to hide their Crimes and to Stop the Exposure and Protest
of these Crimes with Ag-Gag Laws and other forms of Censorship.

Graphic Photos are Evidence of Animal Abuse which cannot be denies as
can written reports.

Anyone who witnesses evidence of Animal Abuse can act against it if
they car or ignore it if they don't; it is Counter-intuitive if not
Suspicious or Corrupt for them to complain about Graphic Images.

There are Worse Images and Videos of Animal Abuse,online, on
Television and in Supermarkets and Butchers.

The Broadcasting Standards Authority refuses to ban TV Farming,
Fishing and Hunting programmes which Promote and Perpetuate Animal
Exploitation, Abuse, Torture and Murder.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

This Death- Dealing Country is so Mired in the Blood and Gore,
Pollution and Destruction of its Myriad Crimes and Corruption that it
has no Concept of Ethics or Respect or Rights of Animals including
Humans.

New Zealand's Pretense to the Myth of a Clean Green Image is now
exposed Internationally as a Lie and a Fraud.

We must first Expose and Protest Animal Abuse to stop it.

If we don not Protest Animal Abuse we Condone it.

There are Worse sites online, ,on TV and in Supermarkets and Butchers.

The Photos I display are NOT Offensive.
No one can rightly claim to be Offended by images of Animals Abuse. They may be Disturbed in which case they can take action to stop these abuses by informing others and Protesting these Abuses.

The Auckland Community Law Centre agrees with me on this Point and Others.

The Photos are Necessarily Graphic to Expose Cases of Animal Abuse and Thus Protest these Abuses.

These Photos are not Harmful to the Public.

It is the Practice of Violent abuse of Animals and the consequences of these abuses which are Harmful to the Public:

For example:

Violence Breeds Violence
The Flesh of Animals who Die in agony and Terror contain Adrenalin and other Stress Hormones which have the same effects on those who ingest their flesh thus making them Stressed and, as a secondary reaction to Stress: Aggression.

Meat, Egg and Dairy- based Diets cause heart Disease, stroke, Obesity, Diabetes, Arthritis and Cancer.

Methane and Nitrous Oxide for Ruminant Animals and factory farming and Synthetic Fertilesers are respectively 23 and 300 times more potent as greenhouse gases than is Carbon Dioxide

Physiological Differences between Animal Species mean that Data from Experiments on Animal is not Reliably Applicable to Humans thus Thousands of Dangerous Drugs have caused Harm and Death to Humans, for eg. Thalidomide, Clioquinol, Stilboestrol, Vioxx, Cyler Opren and TGN.

Pollution with Dangerous Chemicals such as Hexafluorosilicic Acid for Water Fluoridation, Glyphosate and 1080 are Harmful to the Public as well as their Insect, Worm, Bird, and Animal Victims.

It is Socially Responsible to Expose these Abuses and Dangers.

Generally Prevailing Community Standards which allow the Expolitation, abuse, Torture and Murder,of Birds Fish and Animals and the sale for Profit of their Milk and Eggs and their corpse remains and other Assaults on Insects Worms, Birds, Animals, Including Humans and the Environment COULD NOT BE LOWER .
