The Atlantic Takes On Ag GagPosted by Stephen Wells, ALDF Executive Director on March 19, 2014
Today I want to highlight an excellent piece on the constitutional and public policy debacle of “ag gag” laws just out in The Atlantic.
Ag gag laws are nothing more than an attempt by the meat and dairy industries to silence critics, rather than address real problems. That’s why, in the past year, ALDF has filed two lawsuits challenging state ag gag laws—against Utah last year and against Idaho this week—in collaboration with a coalition of public interest organizations.
I recently wrote about the reasons for filing these constitutional challenges in my blog on The Dodo, and am glad to see The Atlantic continuing this important conversation about the rights of whistle-blowers, and the interests of animals.
Read the article and leave a comment on The Atlantic website in support of overturning unjust ag gag laws.
