Circus and factory farms on WNYE

10 July 2004

Television station WNYE, Ch 25, is described as a 'public television station owned by the New York City Dept. of Education. It reaches NY, NJ, and Connecticut. www.wnye.org .

They air various multi-ethnic, multi-cultural programs on music, dance, theater and news broadcasts. I have never ever seen them air anything remotely related to animal protection. They recently aired the following:

- A program about how wonderful it is that the youth of America is learning the growing field of 'modern farming' techniques. It was basically a commercial about factory farming. They showed cows on carousels, twenty at a time, being milked in a circle by a machine as though THEY were machines - you couldn't tell the difference. They did not show the more horrific results of intensive farming - they just glowingly described it, and how the 'youth' is well-advised to work in this field.

- A weird, one-woman play entitled LIZ' CIRCUS STORIES, about how great it is when the circus comes to town, how the man who created a local (animal-user) circus was a hero who had a dream and made it a reality..."Wayne twirls the whip and yells at the horses, and they all stand up on their back legs! It's the best horse act in the county - all the horses wear skirts!...two tigers are released into a steel ring, stalking the trainer; I tell him 'Get Brian' who's giving elephant rides to laughing children...' The music! the majesty!..."

Please contact WNYE and ask them to air the truth about the animals' lives, stories that teach respect of all living beings (and the truth about factory farms) *ALSO a suggestion from Mary Max is that they air PEACEABLE KINGDOM:
