Trees And Fishes Can't Scream
Trees And Fishes Can't Scream
Oregon is the nation's biggest Christmas tree killer
67800 acres devoted to 2164 Christmas tree farms.


In Go East Young Man
Justice Wm O Douglas (the Supreme Court justice) said trees have standing.. he was appointed by an elected president.. FDR

SAY YES TO TREES EAT THE FRUIT AND NUTS TREES PRODUCE
TO ENCOURAGE TREE PLANTING BY CORPORATIONS

If you celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas, please
do so without murdering trees

1 their imprisonment
inside in combination
with old wires
causes Christmas tree fires
2
.. unnaturally fills dumpsites..
3
costs time in vacuuming up needles
4 is a danger to children and animals

ALTERNATIVES

1. decorating an artificial tree inside
2. decorating living evergreens outside
3. planting balled trees... (has a 50%
mortality rate)


Mercy for the trees..
Like a stroke victim around a needle
around an axe a tree cannot scream


Not as many believe that plants
are sentient as believe that animals
and humans are.

For those who don't ...
there are issues of habitat
destruction, of squirrels being
smashed and flightless baby birds
being trapped as trees are cut down..

issues of flood and weather deterioration, desertification
and famine

DOG'S HEALTH JEOPARDIZED EATING CHRISTMAS TREE PARTS

the 2 year old babies murdered as the king looked for Jesus.
There are other holy innocents who appear on the curb
around Dec 28... trees slaughtered..

infinite other names
