Meetup: Exposing Smithfield’s Gas Chambers (Crescent Lawn / UC Berkeley)
Crescent Lawn (UC Berkeley) | Oxford St. and Center St., Berkeley, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Last week, DxE released the first-ever footage from inside a US pig slaughterhouse gas chamber. This horrific footage has been seen by well over 500,000 people now and was featured in WIRED. This week we will hear a bit more about everything that went on behind the scenes, including conversations with the USDA and the LA District Attorney’s Office. DxE Lead Organizer Almira Tanner will be joined by Bonnie Klapper, a member of DxE’s legal team and the attorney who wrote the legal opinion about the footage.
