DxE vs. Big Ag: Help us win the Right to Rescue in 2020

January 6, 2020

Source Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) Facebook

In 2019, we promised that we would spark a worldwide revolution for animal rights and we did. We executed our largest mass action yet, with over 600 people converging at a massive duck farm where we rescued 32 ducklings and continued our campaign for the #RightToRescue. Our actions inspired people around the world, leading to a coordinated, global lockdown for animal rights. From Toronto to Mexico City, Paris to Seoul, activists locked down at farms, slaughterhouses, and government buildings demanding protection for animals under the law. And in 2019, our movement won a major legislative victory for animals: the first statewide fur ban in the nation. DxE investigations showed the world the cruelty of fur farming, and our press team exposed the fur industry’s corruption when they paid people hundreds to thousands of dollars to speak in opposition of the California fur ban.

And our work is getting attention well beyond the animal rights movement. We had some of the most prominent journalists in the world — including Ezra Klein, Amy Goodman, and Glenn Greenwald — applaud our actions as heroic. DxE’s investigation at a Smithfield pig farm exposed the industry’s antibiotic-resistant diseases and was covered in-depth in The New York Times. This year, we had the first-ever victory for the legal #RightToRescue when one of DxE’s investigators facing criminal charges in Canada had the charges against her dropped and the ag industry responded in shock. Since then, we’ve gotten support for the #RightToRescue from Berkeley’s peace and justice commission and the full City Council will be voting on the resolution in December. While I am confident about these victories and what they mean for our movement, I know our work is just getting started.

In 2020, we are putting Big Ag on trial. I am facing 16 felony charges in 3 states for exposing criminal animal abuse at some of the most violent places on this planet. This year for the first time ever, DxE will have the opportunity to challenge animal abusing companies like Smithfield and Petaluma Poultry in front of a judge, jury, and the entire world. What’s our goal? To enshrine groundbreaking Right to Rescue legislation in the letter of the law. And you can help us make that dream a reality.

In the new year, I might be going to prison. I’m preparing myself for that possibility, and my only wish is to see DxE cultivate leaders who will continue mobilizing the masses to the frontlines, training dozens of people in doing more groundbreaking investigatory work, and sharing more stories in mainstream media about Open Rescue. But most importantly, I want to see DxE win against Big Ag. Our cases will be testing animal cruelty laws and forcing the industry to respond to the crimes they’ve committed against animals — and when the truth comes out in court, I believe we will win the #RightToRescue.
