Should MoveOn support this petition?

Dear MoveOn member,

A MoveOn member named Wayne Hsiung recently created a petition on our public petition website entitled "Costco: Remove "Humane" labels from products connected to animal abuse"–and we'd like to know what you think of it.

The petition is addressed to Costco, and reads:

Chickens inside of a Costco cage-free egg supplier were trampled to death. Stop calling this violence humane!

Sign Wayne's petition.

Here's what Wayne wrote about it:

Investigators with Direct Action Everywhere recently exposed horrific violence at a Costco egg farm in Colorado. At this "cage-free" farm, hens were packed into enclosures so tightly that they were often piled three high. The bodies of trampled birds were left to rot inside the farm. These eggs are sold at Costco as "certified humane."

During the investigation, activists rescued one hen named Bailey who was trapped inside the farm's machinery. According to egg industry estimates, more than 1 million hens die every year by getting stuck this way! See her story at

Costco is known as a progressive company, but there is nothing progressive about animal abuse and consumer fraud. Tell Costco to stop lying about the conditions that animals live in!

Can you click to let us know what you think?

I want to sign this petition.

I don't think MoveOn should support this petition.

We'll decide whether to send this petition out to additional MoveOn members in your area based on your feedback.

In case you haven't heard about it, MoveOn's petition site allows anyone to start an online petition and share it with friends and neighbors to build support for their cause.

Thanks for all you do.
