Direct Action Everywhere SF Bay Area has asked Costco to drop Smithfield Foods in light of numerous investigations revealing countless violations of all of Costco’s promised, “Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare” in addition to Smithfield’s ongoing worker exploitation and environmental degradation, but Costco has ignored our request so please wear black clothing and join us to protest Costco’s support for Smithfield Foods and all of its exploitation!
In October, Lily, Lizzie, Paul and Wayne got some level of justice when the #SmithfieldTrial jury delivered acquittals on all charges but we want justice for everyone, starting with Costco cutting ties with Smithfield Foods!
