Cows produce milk for the same reason that humans do—to nourish their young—but calves born on dairy farms are taken from their mothers when they are just one day old and fed milk replacers so that humans can have the milk instead.
In order to keep a steady supply of milk, the cows are repeatedly impregnated. Several times a day, dairy cows are hooked by their udders to electronic milking machines that can cause the cows to suffer electrical shocks, painful lesions, and mastitis.

The 21st of March 2013 is the UN's International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. We have chosen this day to continue spreading our message of animal liberation.
We are acting in unity with the UN's intention for this day. The following excerpt is taken from their website:
"The theme for this year's event is 'Racism and Conflict,' highlighting the fact that racism and discrimination often are at the root of deadly conflict"
We at 269life ask: How does one claim to peacefully call for the end of racism while brutally murdering and oppressing other sentient beings?
How does one act against violent discrimination with a stomach coated with the bloody remains of non human infants and their mothers' stolen milk?
We believe that there cannot be peace, nor an end to human prejudice while our hands are wet with the blood of billions of innocent animals!
Speciesism IS Racism.
