2012 FARM Activists Arrested at Slaughterhouse Demonstration

At 10:50 am Pacific Time this morning, FARM president Dr. Alex Hershaft led
a somber protest as a small group of activists put themselves on the line in
the name of animal freedom. The setting was Farmer John, the largest
slaughterhouse on the West Coast. As the transport trucks turned in for
their morning delivery of new victims, they found the entrance to the
slaughterhouse blocked by two brave people, forcing the slaughter operations
to come to a temporary halt.

Few people can relate to the tragedy of animal agriculture better than Alex
Hershaft, a holocaust survivor. In his own words, "The bucolic murals
depicting pigs cavorting in verdant fields that mask the brutal slaughter of
millions of innocents behind those Farmer John walls are just as devious and
cynical as the inscription 'Work makes you free' upon entering the Auschwitz
death camp."

But FARM's activists know that actions speak louder than words. While being
arrested may bring discomfort, it is nothing compared to the horrors
inflicted on billions of animals each year. The necessary work is far from
done, so stand in solidarity with these courageous demonstrators.
