“If one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to be cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to animals, especially in the name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned and, once large sums of money are at stake, will be defended to the last by otherwise intelligent people.”
– Ruth Harrison, from Animal Machines

Please also check out Melbourne Pig Save:
This is a group that I created with two friends. Our aim is to highlight the plight of pigs in our food production system, including routine and legal confinement and mutilation. Our website contains what I hope are useful links, videos, images and the like. You can access our Facebook and Twitter pages from the site.
