Interview: A Life of Activism with Viva! Founder and Director, Juliet Gellatley

Mon, 10/05/2015 - 16:44 -- Juliet

Viva! have done many revealing undercover investigations into the animal agriculture industry in the UK. In the United States attempts have been made to pass ag-gag laws making it illegal to undercover film animal agriculture. Clearly industrial farming is running scared.

The Dairy Industry is Revolting!

Wed, 08/12/2015 - 13:12 -- Justine

Why are dairy farmers looking to increase milk production in an industry that is in decline? Should we be calling a halt to subsidies which would be better-placed helping farmers move over to growing arable crops?

This week cows were taken into a supermarket by angry dairy farmers protesting against the price they are paid for milk. About 70 farmers took two dairy cows into Asda, in Queensway, Stafford outraged that milk now costs less than some bottled water. It was a desperate stunt from farmers working in a failing industry.

The French Paradox Puzzle and the Magic Bullet

Thu, 04/30/2015 - 12:26 -- Justine

Apparently it is now cheese that is responsible for the French Paradox Puzzle rather than red wine! This revelation has made the headlines in the national press and of course is doing the rounds on social media. It refers to a small-scale Danish study funded by the large farmer-owned dairy company Arla Foods and the Danish Dairy Research Foundation.
