es ce le cas de palestiniens ?
es ce le cas de femmes ou d'enfants battues ?
Non c'est plus grave encore...
A un kilometre a la ronde,vous entendez les gemissements et les cris percants de souffrance. Et a l interieur - surchargement , entassement et ordures.
Mais c est quoi alors ????
les elevages du porc en Israel
il y a 18 fermes, dont huit reunis ensemble dans l association d A ablin, leurs fermes sont clotures au loin derriere une porte electrique.Les porcs ont ete coincés entre eux, a peine capable se deplacer. les porcs souffrent psychologiquement, etant les plus intelligents parmi le betail. Les porcs sont curieux par nature. Ils vivent dans une structure complexe et matriarcale de groupe.
Le traitement inhumain commence des l etape de grossesse. les truies sont gardees durant toute leur grossesse dans les petits camps d isolement qui empechent meme des actions de base telles que se retourner . Ces truies sont parques dans ces camps pendant la plupart de leurs vies.Les camps de la livraison sont egalement extremement etroits, pour empecher la truie d ecraser sa proginiture. Apres 23-30 jours, des porcelets a peine sevres sont transferes à une boucherie et tuer sans anesthesie. Les porcs sont abattus, par une méthode "traumatiques" pour les autres porcs présents.
Le ministere de l agriculture dans l embarras , admet que les recommendations de 2003 pour ameliorer le sort des porcs n ont pas ete encore mises en application a cause des coupures budjetaires ????
Israel's pig farms - a picture of inhumanity
By Tamara Traubman
It felt like we had arrived in hell. A powerful stench was discernible half a kilometer away. A little closer, you hear the moans and screams. And inside - overcrowding and filth. Here, several kilometers west of the Galilee village of A'ablin, is where all of Israel's commercial pig farms are concentrated.
The sties are closed buildings. At one farm, the overcrowding ranges from tolerable to extreme; at another it was horrendous. The pigs were stuck to each other, barely able to move. Other farms raise animals in crowded conditions, but pigs particularly suffer, being the most intelligent among livestock.
Pigs are curious by nature. They live in a complex, matriarchal group structure. When given a chance, even under industrial conditions, they tend to keep their rummaging and sleeping quarters apart. They also need personal space. Crowded pens have been linked by researchers to violence and turf battles among pigs.
Pig farms came to A'ablin following the 1962 law that banned pig farming in Israel except in areas without Jews or Muslims. Today there are 18 farms, eight of which have banded together in the A'ablin Breeders Association, and their farms are fenced off behind an electric gate. A spokesman for the association, attorney Shimon Tzach, claims the breeding conditions in these sties immeasurably surpass those at the unaffiliated farms.
However, an Agriculture Ministry committee that looked into the matter three years ago reported dismal conditions at the association's pig farms. Haaretz reporters were refused entry and a request to arrange a visit in advance was also rejected.
The pork market in Israel is relatively small, but the industry is growing steadily. Over the past five years, the number of pigs raised in Israel nearly doubled - from some 80,000 a year to more than 150,000. Many of the pig farms are under Jewish ownership, but they tend to employ Arabs and Russian immigrants.
A pig's life
The inhumane treatment begins at the pregnancy stage. At some farms the sows are kept throughout their pregnancy in small isolation cages that prevent even basic actions such as turning around. Breeding sows are penned up in these cages for most of their lives.
The delivery cages are also extremely narrow, supposedly to prevent the sow from crushing her litter. After 23-30 days, piglets are weaned and transferred to a pen.
Within their first 30 days, male pigs are neutered to control the size of the herd and to prevent the strong smell of pork from non-neutered male pigs.
At five to seven months the pigs are slaughtered, by a method the committee found to be "traumatic" for the other pigs present.
According to attorney Yossi Wolfson, a member of the Health Ministry committee and an animal rights activist, the farms belonging to the association perform the castration by pulling the testicles - without anesthesia or painkillers.
A spokesman for the breeders' association said in response: "Great improvement has been made in recent years in the pigs' welfare. In the past, the pigs lay on the ground in their own filth, medical care and hygiene conditions were unsatisfactory. Now the pigs are bred on raised platforms that are washed down daily and kept clean. The feeding system is modern and controled. The pigs are under close veterinary watch. The cages are clean and ventilated in summer, and in the winter they have heaters."
The Agriculture Ministry committee recommended in 2003 new regulations to improve pigs' welfare. These included outlawing isolation cages for pregnant sows, keeping nursing sows and newborns in roomier pens, comprising sources of stimulation to prevent piglet mortality. The draft regulations also recommend against neutering pigs since they are slaughtered before reaching the age at which the undesireable smell develops.
However, the recommendations have not yet been implemented. The ministry said the delay stems from a backlog in legislating more urgent animal welfare regulations that are at a more advanced stage. Once that legislation has been completed, work will resume on the regulations in question, the ministry said.
Have steps been taken to improve the pigs' lot in the interim? "Since most of the changes required by the proposed regulations include substantial investment in infrastructure, the breeders cannot be obligated to perform the changes before legislation has been completed," the ministry said.
