The Ursa Freedom Project commits to liberate 9,000 bears from bile farms in China/Viet Nam and to end a practice that is commercially unnecessary. We who gather for the sake of the Moon Bear affirm liberty and deplore the torture of any living being. This endangered species is subjected to the unconscionable practice of bile extraction for use by industries which can use higher quality synthetic replacements to bear bile. The products are largely non-essential, including wine, furniture polish and certain types of medicine for preventable diseases. And the Chinese government has turned a deaf ear to the pleas of those who have worked for decades to help these animals
Ursa Freedom Project begins on March 20 (Vernal Equinox) when, in the evening sky, the constellation Ursa Major rises up from the NorthEastern horizon (Northern Hemisphere*).
The campaign builds through a series of monthly posters and activities that catapult the whole world into action on June 21 (Summer Solstice).
When the rays of the longest day have faded into night, Ursa Major is prominently visible overhead. This celestial event will set the time for the joining of hearts and minds all over the globe, to come together unified in an invocation for freedom for the Moon Bear.
This moment in time will move as a wave that sweeps the planet. Together with every star-gazer around the planet who visualizes liberation for the Moon Bear, groups of caring people will gather in the spirit of freedom. To the Great Bear in the sky, we will lift the intention for freedom high overhead. And in our hearts, we know the time for the release of 9000 Moon Bears is now.
*also known as the Big Dipper, the Starry Plough or the Great Bear
