This show will be hosted by R.T. Fitch, President of Wild Horse Freedom Federation
Our guest tonight is Nancy Watson, President of SAFE Food SAFE Horses Coalition, representing 1.75 million members in support of the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act from coalition partners. Nancy was raised in a Standardbred racing family, and immersed herself in advocating for a ban on horse slaughter after she learned that the fiscal budget had been altered to allow for USDA inspections of horse slaughter facilities in the U.S. in 2011.
The SAFE Food SAFE Horses Coalition has been raising worldwide awareness to the loopholes in U.S. legislation that allows U.S. equines (horses, donkeys, mules and burros) which are laden with pharmaceuticals, into the global food supply, and a "public hearing" on the wild horses to dispel myths and bring the truth to light.
On Sept. 22 & 23, 2016, the SAFE Food SAFE Horses Coalition held a rally in front of the USDA building in Washington D.C., where UN Members of CODEX were attending a food safety meeting at the USDA to discuss veterinary drug residue in the global food supply. The SAFE Food SAFE Horses Coalition wanted to make sure the UN members knew that the U.S. is responsible for the slaughter pipeline which results in toxic horsemeat around the globe.
