Urge Bernie Sanders to Stop Supporting Animal Agriculture

Bernie-sanders-by-phil-roeder

Target: Senator Bernie Sanders, Democratic presidential candidate

Goal: Ask Senator Bernie Sanders to end his support for the cruel and environmentally destructive animal agriculture industry.

Despite other progressive policies, Bernie Sanders continues to support the cruel and destructive animal agriculture industry. Sanders has stated that he “stands with farmers,” supporting dairy farmers in the past and raising no objection to activists being branded as terrorists for standing up for animals. He recently justified his support for the industry with the feeble excuse that “Americans like pork, beef and bacon.”

Animal agriculture is one of the largest air and water polluters and is majorly responsible for deforestation, land degradation and food inequalities. It is also a brutal industry in which animals are confined, mutilated, abused and slaughtered. Moreover, the consumption of animal products can cause serious health issues, including diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

A progressive politician such as Sanders should stand up for the rights of all vulnerable beings. Sign this petition urging Bernie Sanders to stop supporting the brutal and harmful animal agriculture industry.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator Sanders,

Despite a reputation for standing up for those most vulnerable, you continue to support animal agriculture, a destructive and violent industry that profits from inflicting harm and slaughtering billions of innocent beings. Alongside being extremely cruel, this industry is one of the major culprits of environmental degradation of air, water, and land. Furthermore, the consumption of animal products have been linked to a variety of severe health issues, such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Please ensure your progressive policies apply to all sentient beings, including the 50 billion land and sea animals raised and killed for food in the U.S. alone. We demand that you end your support for animal agriculture.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Animal welfare laws in this country need to be overhauled.

    He is pro animals in other respects.

  3. “Aren’t humans amazing? They kill wildlife – birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed. Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative – and fatal – health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer. So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals. Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for “Peace on Earth.”~ David Coates

  4. Bernie, pull your nose out of the ass of the meat producers. It’s obvious you’ll say anything to anyone to get votes.

    Once Americans liked slavery. Thanks God, they realized there are things a human shouldn’t like even if his father liked it.
