ACT RADIO: "Humane" Food Labeling
Greg & Liz welcome back activists & authors Kim Socha and Dallas Rising. Kim & Dallas talk about so-called "humane" food labels like "cage-free" or "locally-grown" - they make the argument that whether or not an animal is humanely or inhumanely raised, it still leads an unnatural life that leads to slaughter or exploitation. They also talk about the concept of abolition versus welfare. Should it be considered a success if factory farms make concessions to treat their animals better? Kim & Dallas argue that those decisions are purely economic ones, not necessarily driven by compassion.
