An interview with an undercover activist

As difficult as it can be to go into work every day and resist the urge to grab armfuls of animals and run, ultimately I know that undercover investigations are altering the landscape of animal agriculture in a way that is so much larger than that which could be accomplished with individual acts of liberation alone. Until recently, investigations also had the benefit of being legal in most states, which is a protection that drew me to the profession, and also why lawmakers and industry officials are working so swiftly to criminalize our behavior.
Yes, I’m going to link to Will Potter’s blog again. No apologies – his posts are consistently thoughtful and informative.

This one is an interview with an undercover factory-farm investigator. Try to square it with the agribusiness depiction of these people as criminals and terrorists who should be silenced.
