CSU Student Stands Up Against Plans For New Campus Slaughterhouse

 When the news broke that Colorado State University was making plans to build a slaughterhouse on campus for "educational purposes," as stated by Kevin Pond, the head of CSU's Department of Sciences—at least one student took a stand. Austin Joseph, a Nutrition and Food Science major at the University, penned a letter in The Rocky Mountain Collegian, a campus-run newspaper. In his letter, Joseph explains how animal agriculture is outdated and that it would be setting the students back to focus on such practices for the future. "If SCU truly has agriculture students' best interests at heart, the school should invest in teaching and researching cellular agriculture, not production methods that will soon be obsolete," he wrote. Thank you for taking an important stand, Austin. We're with you all the way! Keep going, keep fighting for the animals and for the future of our earth! ((hugs))
