Iowa Convergence: Support the Right to Rescue at Trial

Wright County

A Note on Timing:

Support the Right to Rescue at trial!
Please join us for a week-long convergence in Iowa during the trial of DxE investigator Matt Johnson. He and Linda Cridge are being prosecuted for exposing a mass kill method called “ventilation shutdown” and rescuing a piglet named Gilly. This case could set in motion a chain reaction to end ag-gag and enshrine the Right to Rescue and we need YOU to bring this vision to life.
During this convergence we will fill the courtroom to show support at trial, build community and take revolutionary action. #RightToRescue

About the case:
DxE exposed Iowa's largest “pork” producer using a gruesome mass kill method called “ventilation shutdown” or VSD. Thousands of pigs were loaded into a shed, the vents were sealed off, and heat and steam were pumped inside to kill them. With the help of an employee whistleblower who was sickened by the cruelty, DxE investigators captured hidden-camera video of the pigs screaming in agony for hours as they died. The investigators were able to rescue one piglet named Gilly and she is living at a sanctuary today.
Investigator Matt Johnson is the first person to be charged under Iowa’s third ag-gag law, which was signed into law in June 2020, less than two weeks after the release of DxE’s VSD exposé. So instead of prosecuting the horrific animal cruelty at Iowa Select Farms, the state of Iowa came after the whistleblowers who exposed it. They even created a new crime called “food operation trespass” to charge Matt. He and Linda are facing felony burglary charges related to the rescue of Gilly. The animal agriculture industry is unspeakably violent and destructive, but it’s also immensely powerful, so the people who expose it and help the animals are being punished.

One Living Sanctuary Volunteer Day

2785 Franklin Canyon Rd

Once a month we all go volunteer together at One Living Sanctuary. We will gather and go over tasks at 10am in the driveway. Please bring your own lunch and reusable water bottle.
We will help with chores around the sanctuary. Please wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty, jeans are best, work boots, and gloves. There will be simple jobs, dirty jobs (my favorite) as well as jobs that may require a higher level of physical fitness (my super favorite).
Please drive slowly down the long driveway. There are sometimes animals around and we want everyone to be safe.
We recommend wearing layers as it can be cold early in the morning. If you have work gloves, please bring them but we will have extra if needed as well as hand sanitizer.

Spending time with the animals we are fighting for is not only good for your mental health and well being but it reinforces our commitment to the cause.
