The ag-gag laws our government wants to bring in, to target animal cruelty activists and animal rights activists, is to protect their interests.
Corporations and some politicians own piggeries and animal factories. Paul Keating, when he was Prime Minister, did. Peter Singer, together with some brave people from Animal Liberation, once broke into his piggery and filmed some horrific footage of animal cruelty.
They accuse animal rights activists who try to expose cruelty of bringing in disease on the soles of their shoes – but the diseases are already there from animals who are stressed, tortured, weakened, frightened, poisoned with pesticides and suffering under horrible conditions.
These animals become sick with cancers and other diseases. They are then slaughtered and turned into food pellets. Humans eat the animals who’ve been fed cancerous, diseased food. It’s all in Prof Peter Singers book Factory Farming. Have they no shame, these politicians?
