On Saturday, September 28, 1000 ‘angry cows’ – citizens, elected officials, farmers, unions – stormed the site of a factory farm development in France to demand an end to the project.

This project would be a dangerous symbol of the industrialization of agriculture, with serious consequences on employment and the environment. Read more here (in French).
