Corporate Farming law to prohibit photography on farms

We’ve all seen videos and images of inhumane living conditions for animals on large, corporate farms. We’ve seen the inside of filthy hen houses, pigs eating hormone enhanced feed and cows with debilitating deformities attributed to living their whole lives in confined spaces.

Finally, the government is putting an end to it. The videos, that is.

In three states, Iowa, Florida and Minnesota, there are pending laws making it illegal for photos or videos to be shot on farms with out the permission of the farmer.

These laws could make it possible for large agriculture corporations to continue producing food for Americans in a very unnatural and unhealthy way. Not only is this practice abusive to the animals, but also the food that is produced, is subjected to dirty, disease filled conditions before being transported from the farm into grocery stores.

People who violate the law by publishing illegal images or videos from farms in these states could face very large fine or even jail time.

The original bill in Florida defined the crime as a first degree felony, punishable with 30 years to life in prison and a $10,00 fine, but has been met with so much resistance, it has already been reduced to a first degree misdemeanor, defined by one year in prison and a $1000 fine.

Do you want to help prevent this bill from being passed?

If you want to protect your right to know how your food is raised, Slow Food USA started  this petition supporting good, clean, and fair food.
