Peace by piece
Posted April 21, 2014
Our founding artist Verity Pabla writes about Peace By Piece:
The incredible Animals Asia announced the other day that they have launched the Peace by piece campaign, which shall be the transformation of bear farm into a bear sanctuary! Such amazing news. As a supporter of the organisation Animals Asia (10% of my music income goes to them), I’d love for both my audience and that of I’m not a machine music, to find out more on their website https://peacebypiece.animalsasia.org and here is some further information that I hope inspires you to support them too:
Peace by Piece is Animals Asia’s new landmark campaign to help rescue and rehabilitate over 130 moon bears in Nanning, China. These bears have been kept in horrendous conditions – many trapped in tiny cages from birth – and farmed for their bile.
Some of the 41 female bears could be pregnant with up to four cubs.
The farmer had bred the bears and extracted their bile for years, but had a change of heart when his daughter convinced him of the horrible cruelty of the trade. Animals Asia is taking over custody and care of the bears, leasing the land and facilities.
This will be the largest rescue of its kind in the world.
