5 DxE activists are facing up to 60 years in prison for rescuing two dying piglets from a Smithfield factory farm in Utah. These charges came shortly after 6 DxE activists received felony charges for a whistleblowing investigation and Open Rescue at a Norbest turkey farm also located in Utah. Since then, DxE co-founder Wayne Hsiung has also received felony charges for rescuing a sick baby goat in North Carolina. In the face of all this industry repression, we need your help to continue our groundbreaking work.
Whistleblowers who expose animal abuse should be protected, not prosecuted.
The next court date for the Smithfield 5 is on August 6th. Check here after that date for the latest information.
The next court date for the Norbest 6 is on August 7th. Check here after that date for the latest information.
The next court date for DxE co-founder Wayne Hsiung is on July 5th. Check here after that date for the latest information.

Share the petition on social media. Beyond just animal rights advocates, the public at large doesn't support factory farms or their government-supported abuse of power. These court cases have the potential to bring a whole new set of people together to oppose repression and demand the truth.
