Judges strike down ‘ag-gag’ laws for violating the First Amendment

On January 22, 2020, a federal judge struck down the nation’s oldest “ag-gag” law, the latest in a series of victories against these laws and in favor of the First Amendment right to seek the truth about how animal agribusinesses treat the animals in their care. Kansas’s Farm Animal and Field Crop and Research Facilities Protection Act, passed in 1990, criminalized a wide range of conduct related to animal facilities, most importantly, entering an animal facility not open to the public with the intent to take photographs or recordings.

Across the U.S., many states seeking to conceal the inherent cruelty of animal agriculture from the general public have passed laws like the Kansas statute targeting whistleblowers and undercover investigators. These laws, commonly known as “ag-gag” laws, prevent us from gaining access to and exposing the widespread cruel (yet standard) treatment of farm animals. Without these critical undercover investigations, the public would effectively be kept from learning about the cruelty involved in daily factory farming practices.

STOP THE CORPORATE POWER GRAB IN OHIO

Vote    NO on Issue 2  

Issue 2 is an inappropriate use of the Ohio constitution, and would set a dangerous precedent by creating a permanent place for special interests in the constitution.

On November 3, Vote NO!

 NO to corporate and special interest takeover of our Ohio constitution

NO to unchecked power and new layers of unaccountable bureaucracy over our livestock farmers

NO to a new board acting as judge, jury and executioner of all animal agriculture policies in Ohio

NO to expanded state government

NO to an appointed board of political cronies who could radically shift livestock standards in any direction

NO to giveaways for factory farms in the Ohio constitution  

Don’t allow special interests to hijack the state constitution: Vote NO on ISSUE 2
