START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
Sep 7, 2013

Hello friends!
We hope you've enjoyed your summer. As you know SOO's mission is animal rights and combatting factory farming. Therefore, many fellow activist friends might recall when we shared the impactful video on factory farming called “Opus One” by Madison Park.  "Opus One" exposes the horrific way farm animals in factory farms are treated, which is over 97% of all animals raised for food. Well now Madison Park has done it again and taken it even further by focusing on several animal, environmental and humanity issues in their new video "I Don't Want To Know". We ask that you watch, note and share to spread this message. It contains facts that will alarm a lot of people. It also speaks to easy solutions one can make, which is great. 
And if you missed “Opus One”, it can be found on our profile, and YouTube. 

From the Artist: Some of you might recall our first advocacy video, "Opus One", that we produced about factory farming. It was well embraced by various animal organizations and found it's way to many viewers. We've received some of the most thoughtful messages from total strangers about it. In many cases, that person sharing with us how "Opus One" enlightened them to the realities of factory farming, causing them to make certain lifestyle changes. These words are music to our ears. And we know many of you agree! We've returned with our second advocacy piece, "I Don't Want to Know". The overall message of this piece is compassion. While the facts delivered in the video are astonishing to learn, simple solutions to these issues do exist. And these solutions are also provided here. --We want to do our part to help make change. And we can work towards change together if you watch and share "I Don't Want to Know". -madison park-

It's a long road but the more of us who walk it the shorter it becomes............

Asking for change where the treatment of animals, our environment and human rights are concerned. Corporate America, all government bodies, all civilians need to respect ALL life. An orca isn't happy living in a swimming pool, it's not ok to raise a pig in a 2 foot wide crate, bullying isn't "just a thing kids do", and certain laws need to change.

Hi Everyone!

Please check out this Larry King interview with Waynce Pacelle of HSUS. Please forward and Note. We need this story to stay active until CA votes on November 4th.

Please take action! If you live in California or have friends/family in CA please make sure they know about Proposition 2 and strongly urge them to vote "YES"! It would mean big positive change for farm animals. 


Thanks and have a great weekend!

Hi To All!


Thanks to everyone for taking such an interest in the story about Hormel and the pig farm in Iowa. The response we got here on myspace and on the network is incredible. We would like to ask everyone to continue this fight by contacting the Greene County Iowa's Senator, Congressman, and County Attorney's office to demand that these men are prosecuted. PETA is working hard to press charges against 18 individuals and knowing how difficult that can be we need to ensure that we have local officials hear how much we care… or we don't get the action we want. 


This entails calling, emailing or faxing. They need to hear how important this issue is to people in their community and beyond! All states worry about their image to the rest of the country; so just because we aren't in Iowa doesn't mean we are removed from these tragic issues for these animals.


Contact info is below if you can take a minute and reach out to one, two or all three! Please ask them to see that criminal charges are pressed against the employees involved in the abuse!


We called and we're listing our experiences with each office below:


Congressman Latham's office - 1421 South Bell Avenue Suite 108A, Ames, Iowa 50010
Phone: 515-232-2885
Fax: 515-232-2844


*They had no interest in what was going on and referred us to the Iowa Attorney General. Call them anyway so they can hear that they should have an interest!


Iowa Attorney General

Tom Miller


*Spoke with Tom Miller. He said Greene County Attorney and Sheriff were handling it. Again, they too need to hear from us about the country-wide public outrage.


Greene Attorney County



Spoke with Nick Attorney Martino County

*Nick said they are investigating and “believes charges will be filed”. He is in the process of reviewing the PETA video. He is also interviewing people involved. He said it takes time and can't release any other information because it is an ongoing case. It's great for his office to hear from as many as possible that we are all watching what happens.


Senator Grassley
721 Federal Building
210 Walnut Street
Des Moines, IA
(515) 288-1145
Fax: (515) 288-5097

(we have not reached Senator Grassley, yet)


Please do what you can and have a great week!

Please Call Hormel To Stop Pig Abuse


An Iowa sheriff launched an investigation into an undercover video showing horrific abuse of precious pigs at an evil factory farm. This is a factory farm that supplies pigs to a slaughter house where Hormel purchases their meat. Pigs were beaten horribly; amongst other tragic things. The video footage is a lot to bear. If you think "I can't watch that" – then all the more reason for you to call or email Hormel and ask them to terminate these terrible employees and prosecute them with criminal charges. Hormel has the power to enforce this. Hormel told us they fired two employees. If true, that is a start -- but not enough! Legal action must be taken. These monsters need to be made an example of so this crap will stop.


PETA has provided a link to their video and a sample email here. This video will make you maaaad. It will also make you want to do something:


Please contact Hormel quickly. Consider calling, writing a letter, or best yet, filling out the company's online form.

You can send polite, but firm comments to:

Hormel Foods Corporation
Attn: Consumer Response,
1 Hormel Place, Austin, MN 55912
