Teken Ook!

Dear friends, 

They were burnt alive -- 20,000 pigs packed into tiny pens with nowhere to run. 

But his farms were hell long before that: sick piglets beaten to death, extreme overcrowding, animals left suffering with broken bones and protruding organs. 

Dutch farmer Adriaan Straathof has a gruesome reputation and Germany has already banned his farming. Now other EU countries must do the same. 

The farmer hopes to just carry on, but if we make this huge, we can force a whole new level of scrutiny, and get regulators to suspend his permits while all his farms are urgently investigated. There’s no time to lose! 

Straathof is one of the biggest pig farmers in the EU, with 6 mega farms in the Netherlands and a string of others in Hungary and Germany. And while the Dutch food safety authority has inspected his farms 14 times, and reports of abuse, fines, and violations are piling up, he’s just got a permit to farm another 11,000 pigs! 

Enough -- this isn’t farming, it’s industrial torture! 

Together we can make sure that these were his last victims. Let’s create a massive public appeal, forcing regulators to intervene and stop the next bloodbath: 

Our movement has been on the frontline of fighting violence against animals, from China’s dog meat festival, to the cruel trade in horse blood. We know that when we come together in massive numbers to protect animals, incredible things can happen -- and this time will be no different. 

With hope and determination, 

Mike, Anneke, Luca, Danny and the entire Avaaz team
