Residents of Freirina, Chile have been rioting against the unbearable stench emanating from Agrosuper, one of the largest pig farms in the world. In the interest of their own safety, Agrosuper workers fled the plant, abandoning 500,000 pigs to starve.
The waste of the unattended pigs also poses a human health problem, as it seeps into local community water supplies.
Rather than finding alternate care for the pigs, Agrosuper plans to have all of them slaughtered. This is a complete waste of life.
These pigs should not have to starve nor be senselessly slaughtered to pay for the company’s mistakes. Urge Chilean leaders to immediately provide food, water and care for the pigs and take action to minimize environmental dangers resulting from the plant’s disaster so that this never happens again. »
Thanks for taking action!
