The farm factory - the gangland pig

On September 17, 2016, Farm Aid hosts its annual concert in Bristow, VA. Since 1985, Farm Aid has raised more than $50 million to support programs designed to keep family farmers on the land. Organized in 1985, Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp held the first Farm Aid concert to raise awareness about the loss of family farms and promote a strong and resilient agricultural system; Dave Matthews joined on in 2001. Dig in and support our family farmers by donating to Farm Aid today.

This is not the first time I've seen this narrative play out, and I don't think it will be the last. The entire situation is incredibly complex and incredibly sad. However, I think that it is time for animal rights organizations to shift tactics. Waging wars against the symptoms of oppression will not result in change. Rather, education of all -- consumers of meat, workers of farm and supporters of organizations -- and a union of the cause of the workers with the cause of the animals is the only way forward if we wish to live in a kinder, more peaceful society.
