I've been a veg for twenty years, although I am still edging into veganism. It started out with the realization of how veal calves live there lives and morphed over the years to every other animal that people eat. Factory farming, in particular, is as cruel as it gets. Despite all the evidence that shows its negative impact on the environment, workers rights, the animals (of course) and our health, the government is doing little to address the problem, and in fact only makes it worse by subsidizing the factory farm industry, which has cloaked itself as an agricultural enterprise to escape the laws that apply to other industry - but I am preaching to the choir here.
Anything that minimizes harm to animals, whether it be factory farms, rodeos, circuses; anywhere that animals have been enslaved for the benefit of "man." Coming up this session in the legislature is a bill to prevent tail-docking of dairy cattle. Support to end this cruel practice would be appreciated.
Hi, my name is Roland and I head up the Carnism Awareness Task Force at First Universalist Church of Denver. We want people to know where their food comes from and how it gets to their plate.
