From Slaughter Free Chicago, opponents of a slaughter house in Marengo:
We need people to show up Tuesday night to speak against a new slaughterhouse in Marengo
What happened to all the jobs that the interchange would bring?
No jobs only lots of Truck traffic.
We need to raise 15K to stop a new slaughterhouse in the Chicago area, known as Community Farm.
A generous donor has offered to match all donations dollar for dollar, which means we only need to raise $7,500!
Community Farm will slaughter, without stunning, fully conscious chickens, turkeys, ducks, rabbits, goats, sheep and cows and could have a significant impact on water and air quality, truck and car traffic (and therefore road maintenance), property values, public health and safety, noise and odor.
The funds raised will cover the legal action against the slaughterhouse, which we believe was improperly approved by McHenry County officials and in violation of county statutes.
If we are successful, this case could create an important precedent, not just for Slaughter Free Cities, but for the animal and environmental protection movement as a whole.
10% of what we raise will go to Georgia’s Place Bird Sanctuary, located about 14 miles from Community Farm.
Please make a contribution, great or small.
We very much appreciate your support and send our heartfelt thanks in advance.
In solidarity,The Slaughter Free Chicago Team.
