2000 fishes Rescue and liberated!
Just by chance, or may be because they were giving their last breathing searching for oxygen, and may be we were the only ones who could save them, we, Leon Vegano activists, saw this dantes image: thousand of fishes fighting in the mud, trying to find a bit of water for diving and breath again, a place where their nightmare would be over, a real nightmare where they were totally exposed, without oxygen, while humans take them away to kill them, and birds and wasps looking for food were eating them still alive..resigning themselves to die in the mud.
Very nervously, (there were no other way) we found out where was the more secure river for free them, getting ready at the same time to save them with the little measures we got. Being aware that it was illegal to move them from a protect area. Whatever, we were back in few minutes, night was falling, and we were trying to walk on our knees over the mud. Sometimes we stamp our feet over their bodies, making us feel so bad, meanwhile other human beings wanted to take them just for the pleasure of their taste.
That night we got to save 86 lives, which could feel again the freedom, and breath, swim in the darkness again,..and that was certainly a magic moment that we won´t ever forget. The next morning we came back with the only person who answer our call, and along that day, we got to save 2000 fishes before the other human beings came to kill them, peck them or let them die asfixiated before many indiferents ones. Mud went out by their mouths or branquias.
Many fishes had to die before we arrived, some of them did not survive either after being rescued. They were released in different points in order to avoid they were found again. We won´t give names or ubications in order to garantee their security. There, in the mud, tousands of bodies remained ,that could have been saved if only we had had information about the situation. Happiness fullfill us and sadness too, in the same way.
They are just seen as food, as species to preserve, just resources available for human beings. However, the truth is that they are individuals with the ability for feeling, and their own interests, exactly as we are, but thousands of them had to die before the indiferent look of some people, that far away from feeling any kind of empathy, they came to catch them just to ensure their death. It seems that indiference know no limits, we wonder if it hadn´t been "seafood" but dogs, thousands of dogs dying, it had been also only the three of us trying to save them?
Fishes and dogs are different, but have something important in common: feeling ability and self interests, and those who did not came to help, just because they were just “some fishes” you should reflect about it.
we are not going to ask for compassion or charity so this won´t happen again, all we want is RESPECT and because respect, go vegan!
We want to thanks from the depth of our hearts to Nacho and Codi (Asturias) who helped us to publish the warning on Facebook, since our internet conexión had been cut. And to Patty for being punctual in the morning, thanks to her we could save so many individuals in so littile time.
Your indiference is their condemn, remember that a little gesture can save tousands of lives! You are their only hope and if you cross your arms, they will die!
