Squidgy is a #slaughterhouse survivor.

He was terrified of human contact. He'd run, screaming in anticipation of pain if I got too close.

He is a #victim, we must support the #victims of animal agriculture.

We took 91 abused pigs from this cruelty case.

Become a #pigoneer 🐷
Squidgy lived here 👇

He walked amongst the dead, eating what he could find to survive.

His friends and family violently slaughtered in front of him.

But now he and the other 90 pigs are safe.

To keep him safe we need you! We need you and your friends to become #pigoneers!
To become a #pigoneer is simple and a small gesture of £2.50 per month. Many #pigoneers can feed this whole herd of what were abused pigs. Every pig in the image above, 91 in total is safe here @BTWsanctuary

Only recently there was the corona chaos at Tönnies and Westfleisch. Now the meat processor “Allfrisch” in Emsdetten has been hit.
As the Steinfurt district announced at a press conference on Wednesday, at least 26 of the 300 employees are said to have tested positive for COVID-19. What could become a problem:
The employees should live in 13 municipalities within the Steinfurt district and in five municipalities outside the district. The crisis team is now trying to trace the contacts. Area reductions should also be made for all 300 employees.

Jonathan Safran Foer: Meat is not essential. Why are we killing for it?…
"The number of #slaughterhouse workers who have already died this year is on par with the number of U.S. servicemembers who have died annually fighting in Afghanistan over the last five years."
"The answer lies in how we have let agribusiness effectively normalize worker exploitation, and the mercenary skill we sometimes employ to deny or forget our support for that industry’s actions." Are you helping agribusiness normalize worker exploitation by eating their products?

BEFORE READING THIS THREAD, do you think this statement is TRUE or FALSE?

Despite being a documented #epidemic for decades, @HHSGov's #CenterForDiseaseControl(@CDCgov) intentionally obstructs its collecting #statistics on what causes at least 10% of deaths NEEDLESSLY every year.

HINT: You already know of these systemic #DataScams due to #PublicCorruption & #RegulatoryCapture:

🤥#UScensus is maliciously biased

Thread coming soon about #CauseOfDeath #DataFraud

#AmericanSwamp #MedicalControlFraud

ANOTHER HINT: My inability to escape intrahospital, interhospital & health/disability insurers’ #ConspiracyAgainstRights using #MedicalControlFrauds exposes motive of the right answer.

Watch this video later to understand #PublicCorruption by example📽️
