Global Take Action

Take Action!

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” 
—Martin Luther King, Jr.
Since animals do not have citizenship or voices, only people can roar on their behalf. The ACTIVISTS category here at Global Animal contains video interviews with people who, in ways big and small, take a stand for animals. They roar. They act. They inspire us.

Iowa Bill Tries To Make Animal Cruelty Invisible (TAKE ACTION)

Cute baby chicks in a basket, factory farm crueltyIOWA —  Agribusiness has crafted a bill to silence animal welfare activists from exposing the truth about the suffering animals endure in slaughterhouses, factory farms, and other places where animals are a voiceless commodity.  Images are powerful facilitators of change, and the animal welfare movement is no exception as people rally together to fight against such injustices as puppy mills, barbaric testing on animals, and slaughterhouse cruelty. If passed, Senate File 431, nicknamed “The Whistleblower Bill,” will punish the recording and distribution of animal cruelty footage with fines of up to $7,500 and up to five years in prison.

Many of the most shameful chapters in history were born to silence those who stood up for those who were defenseless. Too many horrors have taken the lives of too many because the truth was intentionally and systematically hidden. Global Animal is proud to be part of the growing community worldwide that believes the way animals are treated is the great moral struggle of our time.  If this agribusiness bill stinks to you,  please sign the petition to urge the Senate to vote NO on SF 431. — Global Animal
