San Francisco’s board of supervisors have unanimously passed a resolution that declares animal agriculture as a climate and public health threat, as well as an abuse of animals’ rights.
On Tuesday 23 November 2021, San Francisco’s board of supervisors unanimously passed a resolution that declares animal agriculture as a climate and public health threat, as well as an abuse of animals’ rights. Thus, the resolution encourages California to halt the construction of new factory farms, feeding lots, and slaughterhouses. It also urges the US to support the Farm Systems Reform Act.
Matt Haney, who introduced the resolution, said in an email to One Green Planet, “Across California, millions of animals are routinely confined, abused and killed in animal agricultural facilities, violating California animal cruelty laws with little to no enforcement.”
The resolution was made in conjunction with the No More Factory Farms campaign led by Direct Action Everywhere. DxE has fueled this resolution, revealing the horrifying conditions that the animals live in, the abuse from workers, and the exploitative conditions for staff on factory farms.
