Ag-Gag Bills are being passed in states across the country making it illegal to film undercover videos of animal cruelty and silencing the whistleblowers who uncover violent abuse. Now the Humane Society and ACLU are pushing back.
BREAKING: The first “ag-gag” prosecution is for filming a slaughterhouse from the street.

“These aren’t hypothetical concerns… the industry is trying to turn off the cameras.”
Each year, ten billion animals are raised for consumption in the U.S., mostly on sprawling, industrialized farms, where virtually no federal laws mandate how the animals are treated - though guidelines exist - and state laws are ineffective. As a result, animals are frequently subjected to what many consider cruel treatment and inhumane conditions in the interest of economic efficiency. Death on a Factory Farm chronicles an investigation into alleged abuses that took place at a hog farm in Creston, Ohio. This shocking documentary is produced by Tom Simon (Emmy® winner) and Sarah Teale, producer of the 2006 HBO special “Dealing Dogs”, which received two Emmy® nominations, including Best Documentary.
Few animals hold more fascination for humans than elephants. For centuries they’ve been adored, inspired great works of art, and even been revered as gods, yet they have also been treated with cruelty. An Apology To Elephants explores the abuse of these ancient and intelligent animals and shows how some people are reversing the trend. Narrated and executive produced by Lily Tomlin and directed by Emmy® winner Amy Schatz, with narration written by Jane Wagner.
how about instead of attacking vegans and calling them all assholes, you do some research in why they’re so passionate and why they give up animal products and maybe you’ll understand why we do what we do.
Harvard Medical School has issued a statement announcing that the New England Primate Research Center will be closing within 24 months.
Harvard’s New England Primate Research Center has been embroiled in an ongoing controversy following the negligent deaths of at least 4 primates. The facility is currently under investigation by the USDA and faces a potentially major federal fine for multiple violations of the Animal Welfare Act.
“Harvard wants the public to believe that this closure is due to economics,” said Michael A. Budkie, A.H.T., Executive Director, SAEN (Stop Animal Exploitation NOW!). “That is simply not true. The only way Harvard could quash this scandal is to close the primate center, because even last year’s resignation of the Center’s Director could not end their ineptitude. This closure is the direct result of pressure from activists led by SAEN.”
“The closure of Harvard’s Primate Research Center is the best news I have ever heard,” added Budkie. “The potential exists to bring freedom to many monkeys and to redirect millions of dollars into clinical and epidemiological research which will more directly benefit humans.”
SAEN has announced plans to contact the Harvard Medical School’s administration to explore the possibility of placing at least some of the primates in sanctuaries.
“These primates have suffered enough,” added Budkie. “They deserve a chance to have a new life in another environment where their needs will be put first.”
New Animal Equality investigation reveals archaic chimpanzee circus at Schwaben Park, Germany. Their ten month investigation at Schwaben Park reveals chimps being forced to perform tricks, and sick and mentally impaired animals.
“Following this expose, Schwaben Park should be viewed not as an amusement park, but a prison for hundreds of exploited, innocent beings. In this day and age, we should reject facilities such as Schwaben Park. Animals are not objects of entertainment and I urge the public to boycott this dismal facility.“ ~ Prof. Marc Bekoff
