Experiments with truth: 4/12/10

  • A New Zealand man locked himself to a silo for a day this weekend in protest of factory farming.  Police cut him down from the silo at a pig farm while animal-rights supporters watched.
  • In Hollywood on Sunday, protesters marched for Social Security benefits for gay couples.  700 people marched and were ultimately told that legislation would be introduced to equalize benefits.
  • About 25 people gathered in Asheville, North Carolina on Saturday to protest racial profiling done by immigration officials against Latinos.  They said they want their city to become a “sanctuary,” where people who work and pay taxes are in no danger of deportation.
