EU: Stop the torture farmer

To local, regional, national, and European regulators:

As citizens outraged by the incredible suffering of animals on farms owned by Adriaan Straathof, we urge you to take advantage of all possibilities offered by local, regional, national, and European laws to withdraw his farming permits, ensuring he is unable to farm or keep any livestock or other animals. We also urge you to pass stricter fire and animal welfare regulation to make sure this doesn't happen again.

They were burnt alive -- 20,000 pigs packed into tiny pens with nowhere to run.

But his farms were hell long before the fire: sick piglets beaten to death, extreme overcrowding, animals left suffering with broken bones and protruding organs.

Dutch farmer Adriaan Straathof has a gruesome reputation and Germany has already banned his farming. Now other EU countries must do the same.

The farmer hopes to just carry on, but if we make this huge, we can force a whole new level of scrutiny, and get regulators to suspend his permits while all his farms are urgently investigated. There’s no time to lose!
