Persecution by the Agricultural Industry – System Update with Glenn Greenwald
State ‘Big Ag’ corporations passing laws that whistleblowers will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law if as an employee of the Ag company – including veterinarians – leaks out or exposes cruelty to animals and their processing methods.. WTF??
This week on System Update, Glenn reports on Dept of Agriculture documents obtained via FOIA that reveal how factory farm industry groups surveil and malign industry critics. Glenn also talks to Crystal Heath, a bay-area veterinarian who has been the target of a vicious persecution campaign waged by the industrial agriculture lobby for having spoken out about mistreatment and abuse of animals.
