ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council): Stop ALEC from making it a crime to film animal abuse at factory farms.

Why is this important? It blatently violates our 1st amendment rights and it prevents us from accessing the truth about what we are eating and the treatment of these animals. Everything in Factory Farms would be behind closed doors, completely shutting out the public they feed. The mistreatment, the lack of regulation and the shortcuts they take effect us, the public. Remember these animals that are raised in Factory Farms are being fed to millions of people in the U.S. I mean, if ther were doing what was right, what would they have to hide?http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/03/18/business-lobby-moves-to-criminalize-filming-animal-abuse-on-factory-farms/

      Sick, twisted humans created this diabolical thing called Factory Farming Hell. Let them be subjected to such abhorrent conditions and we'll see how they like it. There is a special branch of Karmic Justice for those who torture innocent animals.
