Mercy For Animals staged a protest against the ag-gag bill in Iowa. From MFA:
On Tuesday, both the Iowa Senate and House passed a bill aimed at preventing farm workers from documenting and exposing acts of cruelty to animals - an effort championed by corporate factory farming interests.
The bill is currently on the desk of Iowa’s governor. MFA is urging him to veto this dangerous and misguided legislation.
Take Action:Call Iowa’s governor Terry Branstad today at (515) 281-5211 and urge him to veto the ag-gag bill.If you are an Iowa resident, please use this form to urge Governor Branstad to veto SF 431/HF 589, a bill designed to shield animal abusers from public scrutiny and prosecute brave whistleblowers who dare to speak out against cruelty to animals, corporate corruption, dangerous working conditions, environmental violations, and food safety concerns.
What are factory farms trying to hide? This (scary video):

There’s a dog fighting game for Android, probably not as fun as Bejeweled »
A call to action from BSLNews.org (Breed Specific Legislation):
REPEATEDLY EMAIL until they take this application off the market.
Can’t kids just play spider solitaire and Bejeweled like me? Why do things have to get all violent? Why can’t they just leave it at mind-numbing?
HILARIOUS/DEPRESSING UPDATE: The makers of the game have an obnoxious note on their info page for anyone who has a problem with the game. They say the note is for anyone “with a bug up your b*tt.” So they can produce a game about dog-fighting but not use the word “butt”? The problem with America in a nutshell!
