If you are approached by animal activists about your supply chain, don’t engage them. These activists send out blasts to many different companies trying to find one who will meet with them. While they may seem reasonable–merely asking for “dialogue”–taking a meeting will only turn into a shakedown. The animal activists demand that companies make a pledge to buy high-cost animal products, or else be (falsely) accused of supporting animal cruelty.
Animal activists are trying to take companies hostage.
They threaten restaurants and grocers by telling them to change their animal protein supply chains, or else face harassment and accusations of support for animal cruelty. This website provides information on why you should not give in to these bullies.
Who are the activists?
The Humane League
The Humane League is one of the leading groups harassing restaurants and grocers. Its goal is total veganism. A founder of the group was convicted of making terroristic threats for threatening to kill someone’s children.
Mercy for Animals
Mercy for Animals is a vegan organization that does not believe consumers should be allowed to enjoy meat, dairy, and eggs.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is against all meat, dairy, and eggs. It’s also against wearing leather, visiting zoos, and owning pets.
Humane Society of the United States
The Humane Society of the United States—not to be confused with your local pet shelter—has the same goals as PETA. While this group may appear moderate, HSUS’s corporate outreach director is so extreme that he has compared modern farms to Nazi concentration camps.
Open Philanthropy Project
This organization has directed $64 million to animal activist groups since 2016, much of it for corporate harassment campaigns–demonstrating how these campaigns are anything but grassroots.
Direct Action Everywhere
This organization protests inside of restaurants and grocery stores—even establishments such as Whole Foods and Chipotle. Along with harassing shoppers and diners for enjoying meat, its followers are willing to steal livestock from farms.
