Transit Authority Refuses to Run Factory Farm Ads

North Carolina is the second largest pork producer, but Raleigh’s transit authority will not run gestation crate PSAs.

While the confining gestation crates that factory farm pigs are forced to live in are common practice in the agriculture industry, the Raleigh Transit Authority has decided not to run advertisements by the Humane Society of the United States that feature pictures of the pigs in the cages. As a result, the HSUS is pressing charges against the RTA on the grounds that their first amendment rights are being violated. “The Raleigh Transit Authority cannot refuse to run this advertisement just because it is uncomfortable with showing the public how abused most breeding pigs in the pork industry are,” said Jonathan Lovvorn, who works for the animal protection litigation at the HSUS. Currently, North Carolina is one of the largest pork producers in the country.
