I warn mothers and fathers to lock up their children’s IG accounts because they ikely don’t want them to see me and become inspired to:

With an a Ivy League degree
And an amazing husband 3000 miles away, back home
While many are in an office on a Monday, I’m sitting in a Mercedes repair shop waiting for the van to get its fluids refreshed.

10 Billion Lives – College of the Sequoias stop

By

Visalia, you impressed us with the kindness of your students.
A city in the middle of an agricultural area, we were sure to meet students and those with family that work on farms, and some in slaughterhouses. There’s worry that some get desensitized to witnessing and inflicting violence on animals as a self defense mechanism one may develop to make such brutal work feasible. We understand that the farm industry is a business and one that many feel they have to work in to support themselves or their family. Doubtful anyone chooses to do this under any circumstance, other than duress.

However, despite meeting students under such circumstances, you were open and honest about your affiliation with such companies, and spoke to the many horrors you or your family have undergone witnessing animal slaughter.

To the student who works on a turkey farm and expressed needing to give up eating meat after witnessing baby chicks – just days after birth growing adult feathers bc of the heavy level of hormones they are given to grow to full, monstrous proportions in mere months…

To the father who must day after day slit pigs from neck to bottom, watching the blood drain out while the pigs’ body throttles and spasms as the life drains out…

10 Billion Lives

By

According to USDA reports, nearly 10 billion land animals are raised and killed every year for food in the U.S. alone. Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM), is bringing this injustice to the country’s attention by showing the hard-hitting 10 Billion Lives video at college campuses, music festivals and street fairs.

Our dedicated staff and volunteers offer passersby $1 to watch the video – an outreach method known as “pay-per-view.” After watching, viewers are encouraged to decrease consumption of animals and work towards a vegan diet. The results speak for themselves – more than 80% of viewers commit to eating fewer animal products!
