Iowa’s ag-gag law bad for democracy and food safety
You have to wonder if corporations have more rights than people in this post Citizens United world. Iowa’s new ag-gag presents a new concept of “agricultural production facility fraud” designed to intimidate employees who see poor practices.
Several states want to do the same thing, making it more difficult for whistleblowers to react to really bad food practices. The reaction from the pro ag-gag people is borderline Orwellian, which makes “Animal Farm” more ironic than we care to admit.
