Stop Investing in Cruelty to Animals

Pigs are extremely intelligent and social animals, every bit as smart as the dogs we have at home. Animal scientists have found that pigs recognize their name and respond when called, dream when they sleep, develop close bonds with their family, and can even play simple video games better than chimpanzees! Yet, by investing in Seaboard Foods, Fidelity is keeping these highly intelligent and emotional animals locked up in tiny cages where they can do nothing but stand up and lie down for virtually their entire lives.
In recent years, the public has learned out about the harsh realities of gestation crates. In fact, gestation crates are so cruel, they’re illegal in 9 US states, and are being eliminated in all of Canada, Australia, South Africa, and all 27 countries of the European Union. Some of the world's largest pork buyers have created policies demanding their suppliers eliminate these cages, including McDonald's, Burger King, Subway, Oscar Mayer, Johnsonville Sausage, Jimmy Dean, Kroger, and more. Despite this large scale opposition to gestation crates, Fidelity continues to invest in Seaboard.
It's time for Fidelity to stop investing in this archaic practice once and for all. Help out mother pigs by signing this petition, and tell Fidelity to stop investing in cruelty and pull out of Seaboard Foods!
