New film documents Iowa’s battle with factory farms
Get ready for the Iowa premiere of Right to Harm at the Iowa State Historical Building on Wednesday, May 29 at 7:00 pm. The movie addresses the “human welfare’ side of factory farm impacts and is a very moving depiction of the social injustice impacts of Big Ag, Big Pork, and Big Chicken.
Each of Iowa’s more than 10,000 factory farms are built in communities of neighbors who have few protections and little ability to have a meaningful say on a confinement’s location. Right to Harm addresses the devastating ramifications that many families in Iowa and across the US experience from these inadequately regulated livestock factories.
