WCIU Reporter Diana Guiterrez interviewed Robert Grillo of Free from Harm at City Hall about shutting down illegal slaughterhouses in Chicago. “Our aim is to make history in the city that once promoted itself as the slaughter capital of the world by going slaughter free. We have a legal path to reaching that goal, but it relies on city officials doing their job and enforcing existing laws. That’s why our attention is on them, the Mayor and the City Council.”

The interview was recorded on September 16th, one week prior to the anticipated meeting with top city officials from the Departments of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection, Zoning and Department of Public Health.

Diana Guiterrez then met Grillo again outside City Hall on September 23rd after this meeting to get a sense of what was discussed and what next steps would be. Watch the video below for details.
