URGENT: Ask Senate to Revise HEROES Act!

Following up our recent post regarding the HEROES Act, we are asking everyone to contact their senators to demand revisions protecting farmed animals now that the legislation has been passed by the U.S. House of Representatives. As drafted, it would give essentially a bailout to large agribusinesses for “depopulating” their farmed animals. These mass killings are a brutal way to deal with these poor animals who are already given such a cruel fate.

ENOUGH OF OUR HARD-EARNED TAXPAYER DOLLARS ALREADY GO TO SUBSIDIZE THE HORRENDOUS MASS-PRODUCTION AND SLAUGHTER OF BILLIONS OF ANIMALS EACH YEAR.  THESE INDUSTRIES ARE NIGHTMARES FOR PUBLIC HEALTH. THE ENVIRONMENT, AND ALL ANIMALS, HUMAN AND NON-HUMAN ALIKE, WHO ARE FORCED TO WORK AND LIVE IN THESE FILTHY CONDITIONS.

NO BAILOUTS FOR AGRIBUSINESS!

PLEASE SIGN, THEN FORWARD AND WIDE!

URGENT: Farmed animals need your help now!

Billions of federal tax dollars are once again being slated for COVID-19 relief in the upcoming HEROES Act.  As the petition states, these should be going to those most in need (people who have lost income and healthcare, suddenly become stay-at-home parents with no access to childcare assistance, struggling to feed themselves, their kids and their pets, etc), not to providing funding for horrific killing methods of already severely abused animals destined for food.

We need lots of volunteers to help set up, help vendors get set up, monitor the park to make sure people are properly using the recycling and composting areas, staff the Mobilization for Animals’ registration and information tables, and help pack up at day’s end.  Please spare a few hours for the Earth and all the species who share it!

Please post to any email lists, social media outlets, bulletin boards, or anything else to which you have access.

Also, if your organization or business would like to be a vendor or sponsor, that information is also on our website.

Hope to see you there, one way or another!

Thanks for anything you can do!

Take care,
Jenny
