I just discovered a fantastic website: vegan.com, a blog hosted by Erik Marcus, author of Meat Market (2005) and Vegan: The New Ethics of Eating (2000). Erik is a pioneer in the animal welfare movement, and is currently pushing for surveillance cameras to be mandatory in slaughterhouses. Installing surveillance cameras in slaughterhouses would serve as an inexpensive, easy, and effective method to assure slaughterhouses live up to the standards they agree to. A facebook group has been created to support this idea and coordinate efforts to make it become a reality. Join the group here! Sign the petition here!
