First Charges Under Ag-Gag Legislation Dropped

Even though Utah passed a bill criminalizing the filming of factory farms, the public and media still voice their disapproval.

When charges were filed against Amy Meyer for filming a Utah meatpacking operation—making her the first victim of ag-gag legislation—the incident garnered instant attention from the media and the general public. After activist news source greenisthenewred.com broke the story, it not only received hundreds of thousands of views online, but the article also made the front page of Reddit and was covered by The Salt Lake Tribune. The outpouring of public dissidence may have prompted agribusiness to think twice about its indictment, and Meyer’s charges were dropped. “I really hope this serves as a warning,” Will Potter of greenisthenewred.com writes. “Not to activists, but to Big Ag: you are losing.”
