Speciesism: The Movie just received an outstanding and totally unexpected mention in one of Australia’s biggest newspapers. From the piece:
I raise the abattoir worker because it’s been front of mind since I saw Speciesism this week, an excellent documentary about the merciless practice of factory farming. The most disturbing part of the film wasn’t so much the undercover clips of animal cruelty but the apathetic reaction of the workers.
Take, for example, an owner of a chicken farm who dispassionately argued her chickens had plenty of room in their cages … but refused to prove it by letting the cameras inside. And then there was the farmhand who proudly counted the number of pigs squeezed into tiny compartments. “If it wasn’t good for the pigs, they wouldn’t be doing it,” she says imbecilely.
