“Horse slaughter goes against our very culture…”

CHATHAM, N.Y., March 27, 2013 –The 2013 Annual American Equine Summit will take place Saturday, April 27 – Sunday, April 28 at Equine Advocates Rescue & Sanctuary in Chatham, NY. This Summit will unite the equine community’s foremost experts to speak about how to end horse slaughter which, although opposed by more than 80% of Americans, is now legal in the U.S.EQUINE ADVOCATES LOGO

Said Susan Wagner, founder/president of Equine Advocates, “Horse slaughter goes against our very culture. The outcry in Europe over horsemeat invading their mainstream food chain is a cautionary tale for what could happen here. This unethical and unsavory practice exists because a small group of special interests within the horse industry want a way to dispose of inconvenient equines quickly and for profit, rather than take responsibility for them. It’s downright un-American and must be banned.”Some of the distinguished speakers coming from across the country to participate in the Summit include:
•Patricia M. Hogan, VMD, ACVS (New Jersey): World-renowned equine surgeon will discuss the negative effects horse slaughter has on the racing industry.
•Ann Marini, Ph.D., M.D. (Maryland): Award-winning physician will discuss her ground-breaking study on the dangers of the drug Phenylbutazone found in horses sold for human consumption.
•U.S. Congressman Chris Gibson (R-NY): will discuss H.R. 1094, the Safeguard American Food Exports Act (SAFE).
•John Holland (Virginia): Equine Welfare Alliance President will speak about understanding the forces behind horse slaughter.
•R.T. Fitch (Texas): “Straight From the Horse’s Heart” author and blogger on the BLM’s agenda to destroy America’s Wild Horse and Burro Herds.
•Paula Bacon (Texas) Former Mayor of Kaufman, TX and Vickery Eckhoff (New York), Forbes.com writer, on the issues and impact of opening a horse slaughterhouse.
•Victoria McCullough (Florida), Horse advocate/Chairwoman of Chesapeake Petroleum and Florida State Senator Joseph Abruzzo will discuss how horse slaughter impacts food safety in the U.S. and Europe. More

Newly discovered evidence in the form of the Ruby Pipeline project contract ties BP (formerly known as British Petroleum) to another environmental catastrophe under way in the western states of the US, the systematic removal and eventual destruction of federally protected wild mustang horses from public land, with the aid of the US Department of The Interior, in violation of federal Law.

ATS News, the investigative journalism arm of number-one “alternative topics” web site, AboveTopSecret.com, has discovered that BP Energy’s habitual destruction of vital habitats is not limited to the Gulf of Mexico, but extends to the desert and western states as well. In a hard hitting collaboration with 17 time Emmy Award Winner George Knapp, of KLAS TV in Las Vegas, ATS News’ Mark Allin presents the “smoking gun” contract that absolutely ties BP to the Ruby Pipeline (a natural gas pipeline) which will be built through federally protected lands. George Knapp, who has been covering and exposing the US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for decades brings us up to date on the latest round ups of these magnificent animals, at the behest of major multinational corporations in a conspiracy of collusion with the US Department of Interior. http://www.abovetopsecret.com/mustangconspiracy/ More
