Undercover Factory Farming Investigations under Attack in Iowa

From Compassion Over Killing

Agribusiness interests in Iowa’s legislature have renewed their efforts this year to pass “ag-gag” legislation — these are bills aimed at shutting down whistle-blowing exposés documenting the cruel and abusive conditions for animals on factory farms.

To prevent these cruelties from coming to light, big agribusiness is sponsoring HF-589, introduced by Representative Sweeney, and SF-431. If they become law, investigations like this one would essentially be impossible and the public would have an even smaller window into the truth about how its food is being produced.

ACT NOW: If you are a resident of Iowa, please contact your state legislators today to urge them to oppose HF 589 and SF 431 and resist attempts to shield animal agribusiness from public scrutiny.

Several other states have also introduced similar legislation. Read more now.

to factory farmers and those who support them:

how would you like to be stuck in a small pen
watching your friends get slaughtered
over and over again
knowing that soon the cries of death
you will hear
will be from your own
as your murder draws near:(

    Why worry about the investigations unless you have something to hide???
