Viva, Bloody Christmas: We are all murderers

We are all murderers. Every year at Christmas time we torture and kill millions of carps. Let's quit this tradition!

In Poland Christmas tradition of eating fish for dinner turns to be a bloody massacre. Poles are not aware of animals suffering before they land on a table. Viva Foundation aims at drawing public attention at the carp suffering and to make people consume less fish this year or at least eliminate their terrible suffering before consumption.

Don't really get it. What does covering the eyes with a black strip have to do with being a murderer? I'm missing something.

We already do to some extent. Ever heard of the food chain?

I really want to like this, but there's so little to like. WHEN will the animal loving community realise that messages like this Completely Fail to reach their target. When a mindset that enjoys the taste of fish is confronted by someone saying 'you're responsible for death', their wiring will happily respond "Yes, isn't it delicious?"

Really disappointing. And a cheap execution of the black band - when's the last mugshot you saw with the suspect holding their hand to their face?

Much as I agree with the sentiment, you're entirely missing your target, completely.

The stupiest idea I've ever heard! It's like to tell the Poles do not eat eggs at Easter!

Eggs don’t suffer... Do they?
