This is almost unbelievable. Many States in the USA have “Ag-Gag” censorship bills criminalizing animal rights activists, journalists and just about anyone from investigating animal cruelty and taking photo and video footage of animal torture in food industries, including taking video of atrocities visible from the public streets of Utah.
“The first ag-gag prosecution should be a warning that these aren’t hypothetical concerns. These bills have one purpose: keep consumers in the dark. Rather than respond to video footage of animal cruelty with across-the-board reforms, the industry is trying to turn off the cameras.”
