16 th August
10:00 - 10:45
There is a great number of people living in the countryside who protest against the animal farming industry. Those people fight with the expansion of farms in their neighbourhood every day. Local communities are very motivated because they know that their right to live in a safe environment, the worth of their properties and the future of the next generations depend on it. Otwarte Klatki cooperate with them to unite local protests into one movement, to choose strategies beneficial to animals, and to show that factory farming is harmful not only to animals but to people, too. Animal breeding and meat production are powerful industries. That’s why animal rights movement should build a broader coalition with other social movements.
