An OPEN LETTER TO GARY CONKLIN And the Workers of the Conklin Dairy Farm

Mr. Conklin,

Our daughter came to us last night urging us to watch the video of the
abuse at your plant. She was overcome with grief that human beings could
inflict such cruelty and unconscious hatred at the most benign of
creatures and their infants. The shocking images were too much for her
father and me but we watched enough to know where it led.

There are moments in all our lives where we face our deepest, darkest truths.

This is your moment.

What will you do?

Can you look in the mirror and see what you have done? Have you shown this
to your children and family? You are a third generation farmer. Did you
learn this from your ancestors?

Can you face and take the anger and sadness and grief and rage that so
many will be feeling for you and your staff and accept and understand the
outrage?

We know this media attention is difficult to navigate, there are many
people in communications to help you but handle it you will.

Can you hold an open news conference and truly accept the responsibility,
really accept it and be willing to implement change?

Can you attend education classes where you are taught kindness and
compassion for all beings?

Can you then spend your lives teaching that same compassion to children
throughout Ohio about the possibility to change the very nature of your
beings through this exposure in the media?

We challenge you to have the courage, as the brave person who filmed this
did, to open your doors and your hearts. Become the standard for safety
and kindness and actually change -- change your mental state and spend the
rest of your lives, and the lives of your descendants, trying to make your
farm the leader in humane, clean, loving treatment of the very animals you
profit from. You have the opportunity. Certainly one more than those
helpless victims of your sick, tortured abuse.

This is your moment. From the ashes of your lives can you re-build
yourselves?

We know it is possible, if you have the willingness. But do you?

We are all waiting for your outrage and the outrage of your children and
families and friends.

We are all waiting for your next move because we certainly know what ours
is....

It's all here in this petition, which we encourage everyone to sign.

~ Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest

A Message from Gary Yourofsky NIO's Senior Editor of Vegan Education


"So, in honor of every imprisoned cow and calf at Conklin’s camp, for each innocent being who was punched and kicked repeatedly, and for every other imprisoned animal on this planet, we need to gather on MEMORIAL DAY, this Monday May 31 at noon, for a massive demonstration at the Conklin Concentration Camp located at 12939 US Hwy. Route 42 North in Plain City, Ohio. AND TOGETHER WE WILL DISASSEMBLE THE FARM PIECE BY PIECE AND SHUT DOWN THIS PLACE OF TORTURE!!!
"I am asking everyone who cares about justice and injustice to bring bolt cutters, bats, crowbars, pitchforks, hammers and wrenches to help destroy every piece of equipment the farm has, and tear down the sheds. Even as a pacifist, you CAN do this. Dr. King and Gandhi were RADICAL LAW-BREAKERS who CONSTANTLY BROKE UNJUST LAWS. I am not asking you to harm anyone if it is NOT in you to harm someone … although those who wish to will have my FULL SUPPORT. Also, you might want to bring a weapon or be prepared to use the devie you bring to protect yourself (SELF-DEFENSE) from Conklin, his violent cohorts and the police department. Whatever you are comfortable with."
