As an investigator with Direct Action Everywhere (DxE), I have infiltrated farms in the middle of the night in what’s called “open rescue.” We document the brutal reality present even on supposedly “humane” farms. We rescue sick, injured babies from hell and provide them the care and the lives they truly deserve, then publicly tell their stories to the masses via social and mainstream media.
Terrorism is not bringing an injured piglet to a vet. Terrorism is not exposing the violence inherent in animal agriculture. The true terrorism is treating living, feeling individuals as objects, rather than respecting them as the individuals they truly are. The animal rights movement is rising up against this cruelty, and Berkeley is the ideal place to launch this budding, nonviolent movement for all sentient life.
