Anti-Whistle-blower Ag-Gag Bills Aimed at Keeping You In the Dark About Pigs, Factory Farms - And Your Food | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it

Jan 29, 2013 - Humane Society

Agribusiness has introduced anti-whistle-blower or “ag-gag” bills in numerous states aimed at making whistle-blowing on factory farms essentially impossible.

Whistle-blowing employees have played a vital role in exposing animal abuse, unsafe working conditions, and environmental problems on industrial factory farms.

The agribusiness industry's response to these exposés has not been to prevent the abuses, but rather to try to prevent the American people from finding out about the abuses in the first place.

What exactly are anti-whistle-blower bills?
