Fight global warming by going vegetarian


According to the United Nations, the meat industry “emerges as one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global.”

Global warming has been called humankind’s “greatest challenge” and the world’s most grave environmental threat.1 The scientific community says that there is no doubt that global warming is real and that humans are largely to blame. Human activities are emitting vast amounts of “greenhouse gases” that prevent heat from escaping from the Earth’s atmosphere. Scientists report that this phenomenon will increasingly lead to catastrophic natural disasters, such as more frequent and intense droughts, floods, and hurricanes; rising sea levels; and more disease outbreaks. Scientists also warn that global warming threatens the lives of millions of humans and countless other animals. Many conscientious people are trying to help reduce global warming by driving more fuel-efficient cars and using energy-saving light bulbs. Although this helps, science shows that
going vegetarian is perhaps the most effective way to fight global warming.

In a groundbreaking 2006 report, the United Nations (U.N.) said that raising animals for food generates more greenhouse gases than all the cars and trucks in the world combined. Senior U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization official Henning Steinfeld reported that the meat industry is “one of the most significant contributors to today’s most serious environmental problems.”Carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide together cause the vast majority of global warming. Raising animals for food is one of the largest sources of carbon dioxide and the single largest source of both methane and nitrous oxide emissions.

Carbon Dioxide: The burning of fossil fuels (such as oil and gasoline) releases carbon dioxide, the primary gas responsible for global warming. Producing one calorie of animal protein requires more than 10 times as much fossil fuel input—releasing more than 10 times as much carbon dioxide—than does a calorie of plant protein.3 Feeding massive amounts of grain and water to farmed animals and then killing them and processing, transporting, and storing their flesh is extremely energy-intensive. In addition, enormous amounts of carbon dioxide stored in trees are released during the destruction of vast acres of forest to provide pastureland and to grow crops for farmed animals. On top of this, animal manure also releases large quantities of carbon dioxide.

You could exchange your “regular” car for a hybrid Toyota Prius and, by doing so, prevent about 1 ton of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere each year, but according to the University of Chicago, being vegan is more effective in the fight against global warming; a vegan prevents approximately 1.5 fewer tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere each year than a meat-eater does.4 The math is simple: You could spend more than $20,000 on a Prius and still emit 50 percent more carbon dioxide than you would if you just gave up eating meat and other animal products.

Methane: The billions of chickens, turkeys, pigs, and cows who are crammed into factory farms each year in the U.S. produce enormous amounts of methane, both during digestion and from the acres of cesspools filled with feces that they excrete. Scientists report that every pound of methane is more than 20 times as effective as carbon dioxide is at trapping heat in our atmosphere.5 The Environmental Protection Agency shows that animal agriculture is the single largest source of methane emissions in the U.S.




Nitrous Oxide: Nitrous oxide is about 300 times more potent as a global warming gas than carbon dioxide. According to the U.N., the meat, egg, and dairy industries account for a staggering 65 percent of worldwide nitrous oxide emissions.7

You can help stop global warming


The most powerful step that we can take as individuals to avert global warming is to stop eating meat, eggs, and dairy products.

Take the 30-Day Veg Pledge today to start helping the environment every time you.

When they line up, make 'em sign up

Did you know that chickens currently aren't given any protection under the Humane Slaughter Act? In fact, they are specifically excluded from laws that could protect them from abuses such as having their legs and wings broken, being forced to live in their own feces, and being scalded to death. Isn't that depressing?

That's why we really need your
help to make a change! When you're out and about this summer at Warped Tour, Sounds of the Underground, or any other tours or shows; at camp, church, summer school, or record stores; or on road trips—basically, anywhere—please get people to drop down their name and e-mail address to sign our petition. You'll find that the best time to get people to do so is when they're waiting in line for something—to get into a show or buy some merch, for example. It’s super easy and a great way to talk to people about animal rights, and it will earn you tons of points in no time flat! Seriously, you get 100 points for every complete name and e-mail address you collect plus some bonus points just for giving it a shot.

When you're done, just mail us the petitions and include a clearly printed note with your name, e-mail address, and phone number. Cool? Here's where you should send them:

The water we drink


In West Virginia and Maryland, scientists have recently discovered that male fish are growing ovaries; they suspect that this freakish deformity is the result of factory-farm run-off from drug-laden chicken feces.Much of the millions of pounds of excrement and other bodily waste produced by farmed animals every day in the U.S. is stored in sprawling brown lagoons. These lagoons occasionally spill over into surrounding waterways and cause massive numbers of fish and other animals to die. When 25 million gallons of putrid hog urine and feces spilled into a North Carolina river in 1995, between 10 and 14 million fish died as an immediate result.33 This spill was twice as large in volume as the Exxon-Valdez oil disaster, but even smaller amounts of factory-farm runoff can wreak havoc on the environment—the pesticides, antibiotics, and powerful growth hormones that are concentrated in animal flesh are also found in their feces, and these chemicals can have catastrophic effects on the ecosystems surrounding factory farms. In West Virginia and Maryland, for example, scientists have recently discovered that male fish are growing ovaries, and they suspect that this freakish deformity is the result of factory-farm run-off from drug-laden chicken feces.

The EPA reports that chicken, hog, and cattle excrement have polluted 35,000 miles of rivers in 22 states and contaminated groundwater in 17 states.35 Besides the environmental problems caused by farmed animal waste, the dangerous fecal bacteria from farm sewage, including E. coli, can also cause serious illness
in humans.

The pollution from animal factories is also destroying parts of the world’s oceans. In the middle of the United States, streams and rivers carry excrement from animal factories to the Mississippi River, which then deposits the waste in the Gulf of Mexico. The nitrogen from animal feces—and from fertilizer, which is primarily used to grow crops for farmed animals—causes algae populations to skyrocket, leaving little oxygen for other life forms. A 2006 report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration found that the Gulf of Mexico’s “dead zone”—an area in which virtually all the sea animals and plants have died—is now half the size of Maryland.36 In 2006, a separate study by Princeton University found that a shift away from meat production—as well as Americans’ adoption of vegetarian diets—would dramatically reduce the amount of nitrogen in the Gulf to levels that would make the dead zone “small or non-existent.”

The water we drink


Pfiesteria, a deadly microbe that has killed billions of fish, is believed to have originated from sewage run-off from pig and poultry farms in North Carolina and the Delmarva Peninsula. Fish farms also contribute to water pollution—farmers cram thousands of fish into tiny enclosures, and the accumulation of feces and other waste means that aquafarms are little more than open sewers. The massive amounts of feces, fish carcasses, and antibiotic-laced fish food that settle below fish farm cages have actually caused the ocean floor to rot in some areas, and the sludge of fish feces and other debris can be toxic for already-strained ocean ecosystems.

Amazingly, the federal government continues to allow animal factories to negatively impact the health of Americans who live near animal factories. In 2006, public-interest and environmental advocates expressed shock and anger when the EPA
proposed a new loophole that would make it even easier for giant animal factories to pollute the water and air without any oversight. Ed Hopkins, director of the Sierra Club’s Environmental Quality Program, said that the new loophole “essentially means that these facilities are going to be able to continue to use our streams and rivers as sewers.”

What you can do


There is no such thing as a meat-eating environmentalist. The meat, dairy, and egg industries are poisoning and depleting our land, water, and air. Every time we eat animal products, we contribute to ecological devastation and the wasteful misuse of resources on a global scale. You can do your part to stand up to the destructive meat industry by adopting a vegetarian diet. Taking the meat-free plunge has never been easier or more essential than it is today. Visit our VegCooking site for great recipes, tips, shopping lists, and more. Request your free vegetarian starter kit and we'll send it right to your door, along with a free DVD. You can also order free leaflets and download free posters to help you spread the word. With so many great vegetarian options, eating green has never been more delicious. Whether you're doing it for the environment, your own health, or for the sake of animals, you have the power to change the world, simply by changing what's on your plate.

Why wait another day to change your life for the better—and save the lives of others—by going vegetarian? Eating your veggies is not only good for your health and the environment, it's good for animals too. Some people go vegetarian after looking an animal in the eye and realizing that there's a "who," not a "what," looking back. Some avoid animal products to ditch unwanted pounds, and others because they want to reduce the amount of crap dumped on the Earth.

Whatever the reason, there's never been a better time to cut the meat out of your diet. With the huge selection of delicious vegetarian meats available—everything from Chik'n nuggets and mock ground beef to veggie bacon and Tuno—there’s no excuse not to go vegetarian. Make the switch to a compassionate, healthy lifestyle today by taking the Veg Pledge. While you're at it, be sure to forward this pledge to your friends and family members and ask them to go vegetarian too.

Meat and the Environment

Would you ever open your refrigerator, pull out 16 plates of pasta and toss them in the trash, and then eat just one plate of food?1 How about leveling 55 square feet of rain forest for a single meal or dumping 2,500 gallons of water down the drain?2,3 Of course you wouldn't. But if you're eating chicken, fish, turkey, pork, or beef, that's what you're doing—wasting resources and destroying our environment.

Animals raised for food expend the vast majority of the calories that they are fed simply existing, just as we do. We feed more than 70 percent of the grains and cereals we grow to farmed animals, and almost all of those calories go into simply keeping the animals alive, not making them grow.4 Only a small fraction of the calories consumed by farmed animals are actually converted into the meat that people eat.

A major 2006 report by the United Nations summarized the devastation caused by the meat industry. Raising animals for food, the report said, is “one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global. The findings of this report suggest that it should be a major policy focus when dealing with problems of land degradation, climate change and air pollution, water shortage and water pollution and loss of biodiversity. Livestock’s contribution to environmental problems is on a massive scale ….”5









Growing all the crops to feed farmed animals requires massive amounts of water and land—in fact, nearly half of the water and 80 percent of the agricultural land in the United States are used to raise animals for food.6,7 Our taste for meat is also taking a toll on our supply of fuel and other nonrenewable resources—about one-third of the raw materials used in America each year is consumed by the farmed animal industry.8

Farmed animals produce about 130 times as much excrement as the entire human population of the United States, and since factory farms don't have sewage treatment systems as our cities and towns do, this concentrated slop ends up polluting our water, destroying our topsoil, and contaminating our air.9 And meat-eaters are responsible for the production of 100 percent of this waste—about 86,000 pounds per second!10 Give up animal products, and you'll be responsible for none of it.

Many leading environmental organizations, including the National Audubon Society, the WorldWatch Institute, the Sierra Club, and the Union of Concerned Scientists, have recognized that raising animals for food damages the environment more than just about anything else that we do. Whether it's the overuse of resources, unchecked water or air pollution, or soil erosion, raising animals for food is wreaking havoc on the Earth. The most important step you can take to save the planet is to go vegetarian.

Wasted Resources

Raising animals for food requires massive amounts of land food, energy, and water and contributes to animal suffering

In the past 50 years, fishers have exterminated 90 percent of large fish populations.

Vast tracts of land are needed to grow crops to feed the billions of animals we raise for food each year. According to scientists at the Smithsonian Institute, the equivalent of seven football fields of land is bulldozed every minute, much of it to create more room for farmed animals. Of all the agricultural land in the U.S., nearly 80 percent is used in some way to raise animals—that's roughly half of the total land mass of the U.S.10 More than 260 million acres of U.S. forest have been cleared to create cropland to grow grain to feed farmed animals.

The U.S. certainly isn't alone in its misuse of land for animal agriculture. As the world's appetite for meat increases, countries across the globe are bulldozing huge swaths of land to make more room for animals and the crops to feed them. From tropical rain forests in Brazil to ancient pine forests in China, entire ecosystems are being destroyed to fuel our addiction to meat. According to scientists at the Smithsonian Institute, the equivalent of seven football fields of land is bulldozed every minute to create more room for farmed animals.

In the United States and around the world, overgrazing leads to the extinction of indigenous plant and animal species, soil erosion, and eventual desertification that renders once-fertile land barren. Livestock grazing is the number one cause of threatened and extinct species both in the United States and in other parts of the world.14 Philip Fradkin, of the National Audubon Society, states, "The impact of countless hooves and mouths over the years has done more to alter the type of vegetation and land forms of the West than all the water projects, strip mines, power plants, freeways, and subdivision developments combined."15 As more and more land both in the U.S. and around the world is irreparably damaged at the hands of the meat industry, what little arable land does remain may not be enough to produce crops to feed the burgeoning world human population.

Overgrazing leads to the extinction of indigenous plant and animal species, soil erosion, and eventual desertification that renders once- fertile land barren. While factory farms are ruining our land, the commercial fishing industry is pushing entire oceanic ecosystems to the brink of collapse. Commercial fishing boats indiscriminately pull as many fish as they can out of the sea, leaving ecological devastation and the bodies of nontarget animals in their wake. Fishing methods like bottom trawling and long-lining have emptied millions of miles of ocean and pushed some marine species to the brink of extinction

Raising animals for food requires massive amounts of

It takes up to 16 pounds of grain to produce just 1 pound of meat

Raising animals for food is grossly inefficient, because while animals eat large quantities of grain, they only produce small amounts of meat, dairy products, or eggs in return. This is why more than 70 percent of the grain and cereals that we grow in this country are fed to farmed animals. It takes up to 16 pounds of grain to produce just one pound of meat, and even fish on fish farms must be fed 5 pounds of wild-caught fish to produce one pound of farmed fish flesh.17,18 All animals require many times more calories, in the form of grain, soybeans, oats, and corn, than they can possibly return in the form of animal flesh for meat-eaters to consume.

The world's cattle alone consume a quantity of food equal to the caloric needs of 8.7 billion people—more than the entire human population on Earth.19 About 20 percent of the world's population, or 1.4 billion people, could be fed with the grain and soybeans fed to U.S. cattle alone

Meat Means Misery for the World's Hungry

[img]There is more than enough food in the world to feed the entire human population. So why are more than 840 million people still going hungry? Our meat-based diet is partly to blame, as land, water, and other resources that could be used to grow food for human beings are being used to grow crops for farmed animals instead. According to a recent report by Compassion in World Framing, "[c]rops that could be used to feed the hungry are instead being used to fatten animals raised for food." It takes up to 16 pounds of grain to produce just 1 pound of edible animal flesh.

The average adult human burns about 2,000 calories per day, just living his or her life. We use almost all the calories that we consume to move around, breathe, and do everyday tasks. The same is true of farmed animals. For every pound of food that they are fed, only a fraction of the calories are returned in the form of edible flesh. The rest of those calories are burned away raising the animal to slaughter weight or contributing to feathers, blood, and other parts of the animal that are not eaten by humans. This is why animals raised for food have to eat as many as 16 pounds of grain to create just 1 pound of edible flesh.

Because the industrial world is exporting grain to developing countries and importing the meat that is produced with it, farmers who are trying to feed themselves are being driven off their land. Their efficient, plant-based agricultural model is being replaced with intensive livestock rearing, which also pollutes the air and water and renders the once-fertile land dead and barren.

If this trend continues, the developing world will never be able to produce enough food to feed itself, and global hunger will continue to plague hundreds of millions of people around the globe. There's only one solution: "It now seems plain that a vegan diet is the only ethical response to what is arguably the world's most urgent social justice issue.

Target: The British GovernmentRegion: United KingdomWeb site: http://www.PETA.org.ukSign the petition Sponsor

Petition Background (Preamble):
I need 500,000 signatures to get our government to listen. I need you to listen.

Every year 3.5 billion animals are abused then slaughtered at slaughterhouses. Every cow is kept constantly pregnant to produce milk. The cow is gentically manipulated to produce ten times the amount of milk her calf needs. This puts her in unbearable pain. I wish to make genetic manipulation to be made illegal.

I wish to make cutting parts of animals off before they are dead illegal. I wish to create a law that states all slaughterhouses must have CCTV 24/7 and yearly inspections. This is to make slaughterhouses more humane before they are killed.
Petition:
My aim is to create a clean and humane living situations for all animals. This is the beginning of the end of cruelty to animals.

We, the undersigned, call on the British Government to make the slaughterhouses more humane by making genetic modification/manipulation illegal and all slaughterhouses should have 24/7 CCTV and yearly inspections.

Thank You for Pledging to Go Vegan for 30 Days

Congratulations!

You have just taken the first step towards a healthier and more compassionate life. Going vegan has never been easier, and we're here to help! For some delicious recipes to get you started, as well as a list of fantastic vegetarian products, popular veggie cookbooks, and much more, check out VegCooking.com. Celebrities like Alicia Silverstone, Sir Paul McCartney, Forest Whitaker, Fiona Phillips and Russell Brand are all committed to being meat-free. A vegan diet is truly a life-saver: Every vegetarian saves more than 100 animals each year, and vegans are less likely to suffer from heart disease, obesity and several types of cancer.

The following are our "Top Five Tips for Making the Change":

1. Make vegan versions of your favourite meals. "Veg up" your favourite recipes simply by replacing the meat with other foods. For example, create a delicious shepherd's pie by adding Fry's mince, or invite friends over for a veggie BBQ with the Redwood's range of meat-free sausages, burgers, fish-style sticks and nuggets. You could also create tasty veggie kebabs by roasting mushrooms, aubergines, courgettes, tomatoes and onions - yum!

2. Explore delicious vegan recipes. You'll be amazed by the variety of tasty vegan options, from classic British dishes to Italian and Asian. People tell us all the time that going vegan exposed them to an array of flavours and foods they never knew existed. There is no reason to cut out delectable desserts either with alternative ice creams such as Booja Booja's range and Swedish Glace. You can also find lots of snacks and goodies at the Vegan Store.

3. Try tasty faux meats and dairy alternatives. Sample the ever-growing line-up of mock meats - including vegetarian burgers and hot dogs, Thai "fish" cakes and vegan pâtés - and the vast array of tasty alternatives to dairy products, like vegan cream cheese, soya yogurt, and non-dairy chocolates and ice cream. Some of the most popular brands include Tofutti, Cheezly, Alpro Soya and Plamil.

4. Sample microwaveable meals and convenience foods. Always on the run? Check out the vegan microwavable meals in your local grocery store's freezer aisle, like Pure N Pronto's Roasted Mediterranean Vegetables With Quinoa, Lentil and Winter-Vegetable Stew, Mixed Bean Chilli and Thai Vegetable Curry With Green Lentils, which can be found at your local supermarket. There are many quick-and-easy vegan snacks, including basics like fresh fruit and nuts, snack bars from Lara Bar or Raw, and tasty yogurts from Alpro Soya - that come in chocolate and caramel flavours!

5. Find vegan-friendly restaurants in your area. Whatever your budget and wherever you live, you can enjoy great vegetarian meals. Pizza Express and Wagamama are just a few of the national chains that sell tasty veggie burgers or other animal-friendly options.

Thank you again for taking the 30-Day Vegan Pledge. Please visit us again at PETA.org.uk for more great information on going vegan, and check out our latest contests and celebrity features too!

Best of luck!

PETITION

http://action.peta.org.uk/ea-action/action?ea.client.id=5&ea.campaign.id=18086

Stop Plans to Build Intensive Factory Farm in Shropshire

Shropshire Council has received another application to build an intensive broiler chicken production facility and raise a spring lambing flock. If approved, these plans would condemn 150,000 birds and more than 300 sheep to a life of misery and suffering.

Chickens are inquisitive, highly social animals. But on factory farms, they are forced to spend their lives in sheds that reek of ammonia with tens of thousands of other birds. After enduring the agonising pain of having the ends of their sensitive beaks cut off with a red-hot blade in an attempt to stop the frustrated birds being injured when they peck at each other in their cramped cages, the chickens are dosed with antibiotics to fight disease. They are bred to grow so large so fast that many become crippled under their own weight and suffer organ failure. Severe crowding and often filthy conditions also leave the hens highly susceptible to chronic respiratory diseases. Chickens reared for meat reach "slaughter weight" and are killed when they are just 41 days old.

Sheep are gentle, sensitive, emotionally complex and highly intelligent. They can recognise the faces of at least 50 other sheep and can remember 50 images for up to two years. When sheep experience stress or isolation, they show signs of depression similar to humans. Like us, sheep also experience fear when they are separated from their social groups or approached by strangers, meaning that lambs' lives on factory farms are filled with acute distress before being cruelly cut short when they are less than a year old.

We need to take action now. Please urge Shropshire Council to reject the application before the closing date for objections.


Subject
Dear Ms Townend,

I was distressed to learn about Mr R Price's applications (12/04581/EIA, 12/04580/EIA, and 12/04574/EIA) to build an intensive broiler chicken production facility in Shropshire which would house tens of thousands of birds as well as to initiate a spring lambing flock which could reach more than 300 sheep. In addition to being objectionable on animal welfare grounds, there could be serious negative environmental implications. We urge you to reject this planning application.

Chickens on factory farms are forced to grow so fast that their bodies cannot keep up, and many are left unable to walk because their legs simply can't carry the extra weight. Birds can also suffer horrific injuries as they fight for space.

Sheep are gentle, sensitive, emotionally complex and highly intelligent. Studies have shown they recognise the faces of at least 50 other sheep. When they experience the severe stress brought on by factory farming, they show signs of depression similar to humans.

Factory farming also has a severely detrimental effect on the environment. Locally, farm traffic, noise and unpleasant odours can all cause an unacceptable disruption, while, on a global scale, it is now universally recognised that farmed animals are among the main contributors to the greenhouse-gas emissions that cause climate change. A recent UN report has said that people need to consume fewer animal-derived products in order to save the world from the worst impacts of climate change. Raising animals and growing their feed also contributes significantly to other major environmental problems, including habitat destruction, air and water pollution, soil degradation and loss of biodiversity.

Local governments should adopt policies that encourage a move away from meat and dairy consumption and towards sustainable projects aimed at reinvigorating land to grow crops and feed people directly. Intensive farming also creates a much greater risk of disease in animals and contributes to the spread of diseases to the human population, as we have seen with bird flu, mad cow disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, E. coli infections and many other diseases.

I urge you to refuse planning permission for this development. It is now very clear that the best thing we can do for animals and the environment is to end factory farming.

New Study: Consuming Processed Meat Raises Risk of Early Death
By Ari Solomon
A new study conducted by scientists across 10 European countries found that consuming high amounts of processed meats, such as bacon and sausage, can increase your risk of premature death by up to 44 percent. Pointing to the high levels of cholesterol and saturated fat, which are abundant in these products, the study warns people of dangerous coronary disease, as well as cancer.

Americans, on average, consume 4.5 ounces of meat a day, of which over 20 percent is processed. So, it should come as no surprise that heart disease is the number one illness, and the number one killer, in our country.

Luminary doctors from Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn of the Cleveland Clinic to Dr. T. Colin Campbell, author of The China Study, recommend a healthy, plant-based diet not only to halt heart disease, but reverse it.

A healthy, vegan diet is not only great for your heart, it's also the most compassionate decision you can make to help animals who live miserable lives on factory farms. For more recipes and tips on going veg visit ChooseVeg.com.

UN Scientists Urge Western World to Halve Meat Consumption
By Sarah Von Alt
According to the Guardian, Professor Mark Sutton, a lead author of a recent UN Environment Programme (UNEP) study on agriculture and the environment, is calling for a 50 percent reduction in the consumption of meat throughout the Western world, to lessen the effects of meat production on climate change.

UNEP warns: "Unless action is taken, increases in pollution and per capita consumption of energy and animal products will exacerbate nutrient losses, pollution levels and land degradation, further threatening the quality of our water, air and soils, affecting climate and biodiversity."

Agriculture, particularly meat and dairy production, accounts for over 90% of water depletion, and according to Assessing the Environmental Impact of Consumption and Production, a 2010 report from the United Nations, 70% of global freshwater consumption, 38% of total land use, and 19% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions. Vegetarian foods, on the other hand, only take a fraction of the water and other resources needed to sustain meat-based diets.

Whether you're concerned about environmental destruction, animal suffering on factory farms, or the quality of your health, your food choices hold tremendous power. Instead of reducing meat consumption by 50 percent, imagine if everyone went completely meat-free!

A Sausage Speaks on National Meatout Day

https://www.charity-pay.com/mfa/madsausage.asp

http://meatout.org/index.php

The first day of spring is here and with it comes National Meatout Day!

When Meatout first launched back in 1985, the thought of an entire day without meat was foreign to most Americans. Consumers were largely unaware of the horrific brutality cows, pigs, and chickens endured on factory farms and in slaughterhouses.

Thankfully, that’s changing.

And with the recent launch of a powerful new Mercy For Animals ad, more consumers than ever before are witnessing the suffering behind every sausage, burger, and wing—encouraging millions to choose compassion over cruelty.

Today, on National Meatout Day, MFA is proud to be on the frontlines of exposing cruelty and violence to animals on factory farms, providing hope to the over eight billion animals raised each year for food production.

Our hard-hitting new ad, featuring a talking sausage with a disturbing life story, is now opening hearts and minds, airing on MTV, VH1, and Bravo in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, and nationwide on HULU.

Click here to watch our provocative ad now and make a donation to keep the ad running. And, thanks to a generous MFA donor, your donation will be MATCHED, dollar for dollar! But we must raise $100,000 by March 31st to meet the matching challenge.

Your gift of just $20 will become $40 and reach 4,000 viewers. Your donation of $50 becomes $100 and reaches 10,000 viewers.

That means that for each penny you donate, a young person will see MFA’s powerful new ad.

So please, act now. You have the power to help us bring this commanding ad to television viewers nationwide, moving us closer to the day when the unconscionable cruelty inflicted upon animals on factory farms is a thing of the past.

With your help, we can reach millions with our message of compassion for farmed animals. But we need the support of each and every one of you. Please, make a tax-deductible donation today to support this pivotal campaign while celebrating National Meatout Day!



Remember, we must raise $100,000 by March 31st to meet the matching challenge!

When confronted with the cruel and violent truth behind every mouthful of meat, the diner in MFA's ad puts down the sausage. Will you please help us encourage consumers across the country to do the same, today and every day?

Sincerely,



Nathan Runkle
Executive Director

Ag-Gag Bills Backfire, Result in Increased Media Exposure of Factory Farm Cruelty
By Nathan Runkle
In response to a spate of undercover investigations that have uncovered horrific animal abuse and shocking food safety problems in meat, dairy, and egg production, the factory farming industry has been furiously lobbying to pass "ag-gag" laws designed to keep its cruel and unsanitary practices hidden from public view. But that effort seems to be backfiring, as scores of media outlets nationwide are throwing back the curtain on Big Ag and shining a bright light on the industry's sickening practices.

In Wyoming, Kerry Drake with the Casper Star Tribune writes: "When it comes to protecting animals from abuse, I've seen lawmakers in this state do some incredibly stupid things." Drake decries the state's ag-gag bill as "shameful," and a "new low" for Wyoming. "Criminalizing undercover investigations at such farm operations would effectively tell the owners that they can do anything they want to their livestock."

Steven Maviglio from the California Majority Report says: "Even in states dominated by agriculture, the bills have had trouble; even conservatives are wary of the threat to free speech."

And the Indianapolis Star editorialized: "Secret cameras have exposed numerous instances of unhealthful, inhumane and illegal conditions on farms and in other businesses over the years, often leading to highly beneficial corrective action. ... When government fails to fulfill its watchdog duty, citizens, especially but not exclusively in the news media, must take on that role."

From the Associated Press and ABC National News to the Salem Leader and the International Business Times, the news media has been spotlighting the unconstitutional and un-American efforts of the factory farming industry to undermine free speech and freedom of the press in order to hide its indefensible and often illegal acts from the public.

Here is just a sample of the ag-gag news coverage in only the last few weeks:

Lowell Sun: Agri-farm Bills Would Weaken Oversight

The Daily Aztec: Only We Can Stop Inhumane Factory Farming

Herald Times: Bill would shield farms, factories from cameras

Public Source: Bill would limit whistleblower activities on PA farms

Ironically, as the factory farming industry more desperately tries to hide its cruel practices, the more they are exposed.

Gag Reflex: New York Times Editorial Board Slams Ag-Gag Laws
By Nathan Runkle
It seems the meat industry has bitten off more than it can chew as media outlets across the country line up in firm opposition to ag-gag laws aimed at keeping Americans in the dark about where their food comes from and how animals are abused on factory farms. Following a front page story in the Sunday edition of its national paper, the New York Times editorial board strongly condemned these laws as "exactly the wrong solution to a problem entirely of big agriculture's own making."

Titled "Eating With Our Eyes Closed," the editorial points out:

The so-called "ag-gag" laws now being considered by several states, including California, Illinois and Indiana, have nothing to do with protecting property. Their only purpose is to keep consumers in the dark, to make sure we know as little as possible about the grim details of factory farming. ... The ag-gag laws guarantee one thing for certain: increased distrust of American farmers and our food supply in general.

Read the entire article here.

Time and time again, factory farmers have proven to be incapable of self-regulation as evidenced by Mercy For Animals investigations exposing routine and egregious cruelties that shock and horrify most Americans. Animal cruelty runs rampant on factory farms, and the industry knows it. Rather than improve conditions for animals, pro-factory farm legislators are attempting to silence individuals who seek to expose and stop animal abuse. But we don't have to take this lying down.

What You Can Do to Help:

Expose Factory Farm Cruelty - Please share this video with as many people as you can and help expose the cruel and corrupt practices of factory farming industries.

Choose Vegetarian - Each time we eat, we can choose kindness over cruelty. Adopting a diet free of meat, dairy, and eggs is the single most powerful action you can take to prevent needless cruelty to farmed animals. Visit ChooseVeg.com for free recipes, tips on making the switch, and more.
