Groups Ask International Commission on Human Rights to Investigate Abuses on CAFOs Across the Americas

More than 250 indigenous, human-rights, conservation, and public-health groups delivered correspondence asking the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights to hold a hearing on human rights abuses caused by industrial meat, egg, and dairy facilities across the Americas. The request urges the commission to investigate human rights abuses resulting from the unchecked expansion of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) across the Americas and issue a report with recommendations to address those abuses.
