Huffington Post - over 3 years
Talk about a lady in red. PETA Europe's newest ad featuring former Miss World winner Rosanna Davison is certainly hot. You know, like all those chili peppers she's laying on. Davison is promoting PETA's latest project, "Vegans Are Red Hot," a step up from a 2011 campaign when she walked the streets of Dublin in a mini-dress made of lettuce leaves to promote vegetarianism. She's definitely not the first to pose au naturel -- reality star Courtney Stodden stepped out in a lettuce bikini last month to promote a meat-free lifestyle. Other notable (and clothed) celebrities have joined with the animal welfare organization in the recent past, including Emily Deschanel and Ryan Gosling.

Nathan Runkle: The High Cost of Walmart's Cheap Pork
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Do you think it's acceptable to cram an animal into a crate so small she can't even turn around, lie down comfortably, walk, run, play, or engage in other basic behaviors? Walmart does. A Mercy For Animals undercover investigation released last spring provides a shocking look into blatant animal abuse at a Walmart pork supplier -- Christensen Farms -- where pregnant pigs and their piglets are forced to suffer lives of extreme confinement and misery. Like other investigative footage taken at pork factory farms, including footage shot by The Humane Society of the United States at Seaboard Foods, another supplier to Walmart, this shocking hidden-camera video documents thousands of mother pigs forced to live inside narrow metal gestation crates barely larger than their own bodies, piglets slammed headfirst into the ground, workers cutting off piglets' tails and testicles without painkillers, and animals suffering from bloody open wounds. These investigations reveal that t ...

Jonathan Greenberg: Ten Grassroots Lessons From Monsanto's Swift-Boating of the Prop37/Label GMO Campaign
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The populist campaign to label genetically modified food has been successfully Swift-Boating by Monsanto and the largest pesticide and junk food companies on earth. Our consumer movement made the costly mistake of arming itself with peace signs and love beads for what turned out to be a gunfight with a ruthless, assault rifle-equipped enemy. What can we do about it? We can learn from our mistakes for the next necessary round in our struggle for food safety and environmentally responsible agriculture. Ronnie Cummins, the fiery head of the Organic Consumer's Association (the top fund collector for California's Prop 37 to label GMO's), made it clear that when it comes to GMO labeling, citizens are not giving up. "Dirty money and dirty tactics may have won this skirmish," Cummins said, "but they will not win the war." The big problem that we, the American People, now have is that big money has come to dictate political speech in America. Like a cancer spreading across our n ...

WATCH: 'If There's Nothing Wrong With GMOs, Why Not Put It On The Label'?
Popeater - over 4 years
Celebrities from Danny DeVito to Dave Matthews and Bill Maher lent their voices to a new PSA in favor of California's Proposition 37. The legislation, if passed, would require mandatory labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms -- commonly known as GMOs. Sponsored by consumer advocacy group Food & Water Watch, the "Right To Know" video asks California voters to vote "yes" on Prop 37 on November 6. "Knowing if you're eating or buying genetically engineered food is not your right," DeVito jokes in the video. Other celebs including Bill Maher, Jillian Michaels, Emily Deschanel, John Cho, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson, KaDee Strickland and Kristin Bauer van Straten chime in, offering an alternative, such as moving to another country where citizens do have the right to know if their food contains GMOs. Appearing on the state's November ballot, Prop 37 has been hotly contested with opponents of GMO labels pouring tens of millions of dollars into eff ...
