Billions of farmed animals live and die on cruel, unhealthy, and unsustainable factory farm conditions. Secrecy is what makes this system possible but hundreds of undercover investigations are slowly helping to end it. That is why the agribusiness lobby is trying to pass ag-gag: anti-free speech laws that would punish, or even jail, anyone who makes an unauthorized recording on a farm.
In 2013, thanks to public pressure, every ag-gag bill introduced—in a total of 11 states—was defeated. Even though we held ag-gag at bay in 2013, corporate backers of factory farming are trying harder than ever to pass ag-gag bills in 2014.
