We have until January 7 to stop Abdel Abdessemed plans to exhibit pig, a goat, a sheep, a calf, a cow and a horse being killed with a sledgehammer at the Centre Pompidou and video tape it. Another name for this is a snuff video.

We need to let Abdel know that the real art here would be if the pig, goat, sheep, calf, cow and horse stompled him to death and then ate him....

Slaughtering animals as 'entertainment' or 'art' is depraved and can warp some people's minds into harming humans.

We just need to gather some French animal lovers at the Centre Pompidou, Paris, on 7 January 2013 and help them take the sledgehammer away. Not before we try it out first on Adel's right knee. Does he have a permit from the French government to do this or is it all a big hoax? Abdessemed is criticized by animal rights activists who say the animal cruelty depicted in his artwork has been inflicted for the sake of the exhibits. Protests and death threats caused one exhibit to be cancelled.

Just contact the French Embassies around the world and ask them the following:.
a) Does France not have animal protection laws that prohibit wanton acts such as this proposed
obscenity?
b) If the answer to a) is Yes, why do they not apply to this sadist?
c) Would they like several million people around the world to boycott every kind of French product and
export and demonstrated outside embassies, tourist offices and offices of French-owned multinationals
Am sure you well-organised animal lovers of the USA could get enough people together fast enough
to send a clear message to the French government.

Pedophilia is wrong, and child pornography is illegal- we don't care how much the perverts want to say that it is their right to do such things, and we don't buy the nonsense that such videos are "art". Therefore, there is already precedence to deny the torment or killing of animals for "art". Animal torture is wrong, it is not legal, and no matter how much the creeps want to believe, it is NOT ART!

The good news is that the French are organizing some of their own protest regarding this “art” show. ‘Occupy for Animals’ is planning a protest against the show on 07 January 2013. There is a very radical animal’s right group out there called the ALF (Animal Liberation Front). They can also help if contacted. Just what the doctor ordered for situations like these.

UPDATE
No, I didn’t forget about this issue. Today is 07 January 2013 and no animals were killed in the Adel Abdessemed show in Paris. The animals were killed in 2008.

There is a video made by Abdessemed called "Don't Trust Me" being shown at the museum that was made in 2008 that shows animals as they are slaughtered for consumption. It shows the animals being bludgeoned to death with a sledgehammer blow to the head in front of a brick wall. The animals killed include a pig, goat, deer, ox, horse and sheep. The video was shot on a farm in Mexico.

From Occupy for Animals:
“There is currently some panic being spread over Face Book concerning the exhibition of Adel Abdessemed in Paris. We have received a couple of emails from concerned people who wanted to inform us about something very disturbing that they had read referring to how an artist wants to enchain a horse, a cow, a goat, a pig, a sheep and a fawn and then kill them with a hammer. This is nonsense and not true.”

“The French are outraged! French animal rights activists, animal lovers and normal people alike, are outraged and shocked at the fact that their national modern art museum, the Centre Georges Pompidou, promotes these violent and tasteless works that have, in their and in many other people's humble opinion, nothing to do with real art and creativity, and they want the exhibition to be cancelled.”
