No Cruelty to Film Pledge

Read "Ag-gag" is Bait and We're not Falling for it

I agree with the six basic principles below and commit to working toward No Cruelty to Film in agriculture in my state.

1)      Animal protectionists should spend as many resources solving the problem of criminal animal cruelty in agriculture as they do filming it.  Protectionists should work with legislators to authorize and fund multi-disciplinary studies in response to undercover campaigns that pinpoint what went wrong and why. 

2)      Animal protectionists should resist the urge to exaggerate and offend in the context of an ag-gag debate and, instead, invite rational conversations that draw powerful, credible people in, toward solutions.

3)      Agriculturists should recognize that consumers want transparency and modify their business plans accordingly.  Agriculturists should work to overcome barriers to transparency and find ways for the public to experience the progress.

4)      Agriculturists should do a 360-degree audit of their company culture to identify areas of apathy to animals and develop a plan to redirect the culture to one of respect toward animals. 

5)      Legislators should initiate and advance working groups that study incidents of cruelty in agriculture in their state.  Legislators should seek policy changes from the results of this study.

6)      Legislators should discourage further contention between agriculture and animal protection groups and, instead, bring them together to see that ending the cruelty protects agriculture and animals.

    How much more animals have to suffer. It hurts too many people how horrific they r abused up to the slaughtering room. It hurts my heart. I cry for these innocent loving sentient animals that wants to live. I can’t believe that people still consider it normal to murder innocent loving sentient animals and eat them. Millions of vegans all over the world prove that we do not need to eat the animals to survive. in fact we survive better NOT eating the animals. Animals r a life. They are a soul. They have personality. They are a parent and love their children that are violently taken away from them. People need to know whats really going on behind close doors. If there isn’t anything wrong with eating the animals we shouldn’t have anything to hide. People should know ware their meat coming from and the whole process. millions of animals over the world are brutally murdered jus so people can devour them wen the truth is we really do not need to eat the animals. These animals r not brainless. They are smart loving souls. they have feelings and emotions they scream they show fear THEY WANT TO LIVE. They want to trust us to take care of them and love them. They seek love they give love and they return love that’s given to them. These gentle defenseless vulnerable loving animals deserves to live out their life.
