Welfare Activists Intensifying Pressure on Customers


Irrespective of the outcome of the appeal by the National Pork Producers Council and the Farm Bureau on California Proposition #12 to be heard by SCOTUS in October, welfare activists are preparing campaigns to force conversion from conventional cages.

Mercy for Animals is a leader in the coercion of retailers and restaurants.  In coming months, it can be expected that resolutions will be advanced at annual meetings of public-traded companies. Social media will be used to force customers to reconfirm commitments and to specify progress in conversion to alternative housing systems.  It can be expected that companies that have complied or have made substantial progress in conversion will receive complimentary publicity compared to non-conforming vulnerable vulnerable companies that will targeted.
