Pig Business In Northern Ireland (2018) (trailer)


We need a ban on factory farming! Take action today!

More about the film....

Pig Business in Northern Ireland exposes the rapid expansion of mega pig factory units in Northern Ireland and the devastating impacts on human health, protected habitats & animal welfare.

The largest proposed industrial pig production units are destined to be built in the beautifully picturesque landscapes of Northern Ireland. These pig factories will house around 20,000 pigs at any one time. This film has revealed the real horrors of what is about to be inflicted on a massive scale in Northern Ireland.

Frighteningly the proposed mega pig factory in Limavady will bring the total number of pigs to slaughter in Northern Ireland to 1.3 million, each year. To put that into context the human population of Northern Ireland is 1.85 million. So the number of pigs slaughtered each year is the equivalent of nearly three quarters of our population of people!

People living near existing pig farms in Northern Ireland are already suffering from the stench of spreading hundreds of thousands of tons of slurry. As well as it being extremely unpleasant and antisocial for locals living nearby, the slurry is also a toxic brew of allergens, fungi, viruses, and bacteria that is antibiotic resistant and can spread for miles around, posing a catastrophic threat to the health of the general public. This film really will be a must see for everyone!

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations. The Pay-Per-View films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patron subscribers, we partner with filmmakers to provide access to a growing number of films that are unavailable for free. With just 29 highly-curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole, which is 99% free and always will be.

Want to become a patron? Subscribe here. You can cancel or pause your subscription at any time.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker or distributor looking to collaborate, drop us a line via our contact page. 

You're also welcome and encouraged to submit videos directly to our library. Just click +Add Video at the top of the site and paste the video URL to get started. We share our favorite submissions with our fans on social media and feature them more prominently on the site.
