Stop the attempted cover up of animal abuse by agribusiness

New York state legislature is considering a measure (S.5172) that would make it illegal to film animal abuse that occurs on factory farms. This is a direct violation of freedom of speech. Whistle blowers have done more for animal welfare then any other attempt to reign in the abuse. Agribusiness would like nothing better than to hide the abuse that goes on within their facilities. The recent investigations in New York, that have shown malicious abuse of farm animals, has pushed New York's agribusiness to lobby for this measure.

Time to take action!
Please call to your New York state senator and urge opposition to S.5172. Look up your legislators' names and phone numbers.

There is a email petition to sign that is located on the Humane Society's website.
