Last May, I led a team of investigators inside Iowa’s largest “pork” producer, Iowa Select Farms.
We documented — and ended — the company’s gruesome mass killing of thousands of pigs through “ventilation shutdown.”
Yesterday, my trespass charges were dropped!
But the fight isn’t over. My friend Linda and I are still facing felony burglary charges for the rescue of a piglet named Gilly. Linda has a family at home and she doesn’t want to go to jail. We take risks like this because we know we have a community of people who support us. So will you help?
Call the County Attorney, Eric Simonson, at 641-444-3240 and politely ask him to drop the burglary charges against us because helping animals is the right thing to do.
Or you can email Attorney Simonson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support through this whole journey — and through everything that is still to come. Together we can expose animal cruelty around the world and achieve revolutionary change for animals. Matt
PS: My birthday also happens to be coming up, and if you’d like to gift me anything, all I’m asking for is donations to DxE. You can donate here.
