“How dare we continue to deprive animals of all that is meaningful to them in factory farms… we welcome them to the world by tearing them from their mothers, caging them in huge crowded barren sheds, slice away at their tiny bodies, removing what little dignity and hope they have. We take away their agency, their choices, their basic freedoms and frustrate their natural behaviours… And all for a cheap product that no-one actually needs.
We can do so much better than this. We often refer to ourselves as a nation of animal lovers, we boast of how good our animal welfare standards are, yet these animals remain imprisoned in order to bank roll big companies as consumers are mis-sold an image of happy animals. It’s time we stepped up and show the world that we are progressive by banishing factory farming to the history books where it belongs. The Time Is Now.”
