I went into a factory farm one night…
I recently traveled with other DxE activists to document the conditions of the thousands of piglets held at a Farmer John factory farm, and to get medical help for those we could.
The night was pitch black, foggy and cool as we walked up to the rows and rows of low slung, cement barracks in remote Corcoran, CA. Spotlights pierced through the fog, giving everything an eerie glow. We put on protective clothing, masks and booties so we did not bring any unnecessary germs into the buildings, and to protect ourselves from the filthy conditions. The following video gives you an idea of what we saw. I am grateful we were able to rescue several pigs and get them medical care. They now live in a sanctuary, safe, free and happy.
Open rescue is a peaceful, non-violent way of helping animals and protesting the enslavement, torture and death of so billions of innocents each year. We do not cover our faces because we know we are doing the right thing. Join us.
