Safer for monkeys do it than human. Burmese people will die now.

That statement in itself says it all 🙏

 

I wonder if any of the 14 or so million Thai's that could lose their jobs due to Covid-19 would be willing to climb up trees to collect coconuts for money to feed their families....hmm, the article says 370,000 are from the farming sector. 

 

When did Thai's care for the Burmese cheap labourers Yinn ?

I see a lot of trucks with monkeys every day. The trucks doing wellover the speed limit and the animals clinging on to it. Pure animal cruelty. The man is clearly llying.

I see lots of people sleeping on the streets in the UK. Pure human cruelty.

Cruelty is in the eye of the beholder and no doubt you have irrefutable proof that a goldfish is mentally disturbed by imprisonment.

My house is surrounded by coconut trees, and they get picked frequently.

 

I've never seen monkey or humans climb up the trees, as they use a very long bamboo stick to cut the coconuts, and yes I estimate that those sticks are more than 15 meters long.

Monkey's lives matter 🙂

If the gold fish, unlike you it appears, has  spatial awareness, cognitive skills and intrapersonal intelligence, yes then you could call clinging on a speeding truck cruel.

I'd guess extending the thinking logically, McDonalds will have to close.

McDonalds use meat?

Look behind the curtain. This isn't about monkey labour or coconut milk production. This is the UK turning the screw in retaliation for the treatment of British citizens in Thailand and the cosy relationship it now has with China. It's a subtle tap on the shoulder to say "erm calm it down a bit little man" . The red lighting of Thai citizens to travel to the UK and now this is no coincidence. More to come in the not to distant future.

Ban all fruits! Bees are used as slave labourers all over the world to produce fruit and honey.

This is not true. I see many Thais here driving their monkeys to pick coconuts. There are also 3 monkeys down the street from us. I see 2 of them regularly, and they're restrained by short chains 99% of the time. It's so sad. The 3rd monkey I see being walked and beaten and screamed at by his owner. I should get videos & pictures.

Does anyone else remember the postcard on sale here that said "Thailand's intelligent monkey!" and showed a monkey sat on a rock?

It was on sale for many years.
