Forcing Immigrants to Risk their Lives in Hog Processing Plants

It sometimes appears the greed and inhumanity of capitalism knows no bounds. BoycottPork needs your support.

Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday that he planned to sign this order to address “liability problems” related to the food supply chain and specifically mentioned Tyson Foods.

Americans eat too much meat. It’s killing them – heart disease and cancers. And it’s killing our environment – Animal Agriculture produces more green house gasses than any other industry on Earth! Yet when the Covid-19 pandemic spread to the immigrant labor crammed into slaughterhouses there was a great cry to ignore their plight; to ignore their suffering and to ignore their deaths. The investor class pushed President Trump to force the slaughter houses back open. They lie is, of course, that We the People need our bacon – and it has to be American bacon. But in fact without pork products we would all be healthier, and our environment would be healthier too!

According to The Hill, Trumps cruel actions were encouraged by the CEO of Tyson Foods – a company that kills millions of pigs every year. And one that derives huge profits from the suffering of their workers as well as the creatures they slaughter. Where is the outrage?

Of course, the simplest form of protest is to spread the word about the growing Boycott Pork movement. But that’s not enough. We need to gather at the slaughter houses, supermarkets and restaurants to stand against this cruelty. I encourage everyone to join groups in social media protesting this abuse of immigrants, abuse of animals and abuse of our environment. And take action against the real evil that is taking control of our world.

Of course, a rational person would ask, “Where is our legal system? Surely the law will protect the immigrants from this cruelty?” But as is too often the case in a world run by Capitalist Pigs, that bit of potential humanity has been snuffed out…

In other words, even if Tyson kills people (with our complicit support if we choose to eat pork products) they will not be held legally responsible. This is tantamount to legalized murder.
