More cruelty footage of pig farming cruelty was exposed recently by Animal Liberation from the Yelmah piggery in SA. We ask why pigs in the food production system literally have no chance in hell in escaping cruelty under present regulatory systems. We speak with Campaign Director for Animal Liberation, Emma Hurst, Chris Delforce from Aussie Farms & Pete Crosbie from Willowite Sanctuary.
On this week's show, we meet Vincent Berraud. Vincent has been involved in animal liberation for two and a half decades. He took part in the creation of Paris’s first animal lib group, magazine and radio show in the early 1990s.

In Australia, the current review of the Poultry Code is underway. The last review was in 2001 and gained pitifully little for the life of a chicken born into the food production industry which is of no surprise. Birds don't belong in cages, let alone our plate. Likewise, animal welfare does not belong in the Department of Primary Industry. Like the wings of a caged hen, welfare ain't going to 'fly' there.
