That’s in contrast to animal rights extremists, such as PETA, who don’t believe anyone should be allowed to have the rights to choose. We’re also in favor of judging people by their own standards.

In the UK, the government is looking to dictate the number of calories that supermarkets can offer in prepared food. But here in the states, voters think the nanny state has pushed too far. In June, a rare bout of sensible policy came out of Sacramento, where the California governor signed a ban on new local […]
The Humane Society of the United States has a harassment problem. We’re not referring to the alleged sexual harassment problem involving former executives Paul Shapiro and Wayne Pacelle, who resigned earlier this year. We’re talking about a new case: A lawsuit filed by California resident and attorney Matthew Righetti that claims HSUS contacted people without their permission. The suit can be viewed here. […]

But it may turn out to be a giant waste of money. Let’s start with the ballot initiative in California, known as Proposition 12. We’ve previously written about HSUS’s Prop 12: Prop […]
Food in the UK is under threat. It’s not the first time bad food laws have come to the island—it was once mandated that all bananas sold in the EU had to be free of “abnormal curvature.” Brexit would solve a problem like that, but the latest ridicule-worthy proposal comes from Britain itself.

About Activist Facts
Activist Facts, a project of the Center for Organizational Research and Education, provides the public and media with in-depth profiles of think tanks, activist groups, and foundations, along with information about the sources of their funding.
Some of these organizations provide a responsible public service. But some, despite their innocent-sounding names, are financial Goliaths that use junk science, intimidation tactics, and even threats of violence to push their radical agendas. We’ve analyzed over 500,000 pages of IRS records to bring you a comprehensive snapshot of where their money comes from, tracking more than $800 million to date.
We also offer valuable information about hundreds of deep-pocketed foundations, activist celebrities, and other key players in the animal rights, “food police,” and eco-terrorism movements.
