Stopping the factory farming machine

Marking the International Day for Biological Diversity, Compassion in World Farming’s will launch a new campaign, STOPTHEMACHINE at London’s Natural History Museum on Monday 22 May.


STOPTHEMACHINE will demonstrate how lands and waters once teeming with life are now over-farmed, over-fished and denuded to feed billions of farm animals crammed into cruel factory farms. Informed by the global investigation undertaken by Philip Lymbery for his new book, Dead Zone: Where the wild things were,  the campaign will explore the link between factory farming and the plight of some of the world’s most iconic and endangered species, from the Sumatran elephant to the African penguin, the British water vole and the Brazilian jaguar.

The launch will feature a new, immersive exhibition, exploding the myths underlying 21st Century food production and showcasing the ethical, sustainable alternatives once we ‘STOPTHEMACHINE’ of intensive agriculture.


The event will be hosted by Compassion’s Chief Executive, Philip Lymbery, with key speakers Simon King OBE and Tony Juniper
