Food + Water Watch NM presents:
“Resistance”, a new film on the growing threat of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Be one of the first to see this important new film and learn what you can do locally to fight back against factory farm abuse of our life-saving medicines. This is a free screening but seating is limited.
Factory farms regularly give their animals daily, low doses of antibiotics to compensate for filthy living conditions and boost profits. In fact, a whopping 80% of antibiotics in the US are used on factory farms. This practice is breeding antibiotic-resistant bacteria and making the medicines we rely on to treat simple infections less effective when we actually need them.
We can't sit back and watch the dairy industry squander our life-saving medicines. We're working locally to call for federal action to ban factory farms from using antibiotics on healthy animals.
