Artist's Description

Images from a protest against cruelty to pigs in Melbourne CBD, June 16, 2012.

If you care about animals, refuse to purchase factory-farmed products.

Most Australians (people anywhere) are appalled by animal cruelty, yet are unaware that their supermarket purchases support one of the cruelest industries in the country.

Australia’s pig industry has been adept at keeping its secrets, knowing that many Australians would refuse to purchase pork, ham and bacon products if informed of the cruelty pigs endure in factory farms and during the slaughter process.

Pregnant pigs can be kept for their entire 4 month pregnancy in a tiny metal stall not much bigger than the size of their bodies. Nursing mothers are similarly confined. Unable to interact with their babies they watch helplessly as their piglets have their tails cut off and teeth clipped without pain relief. Male piglets are castrated without anaesthetic.

The ability of these intelligent and sensitive animals to suffer is no different to the family dog. Despite this, consecutive governments have provided legal exceptions to pig farmers to prevent them from being prosecuted for animal cruelty so that they can maximize their profits.

If you care about animals, refuse to purchase factory-farmed products.
