Dominic West, who starred in the hit HBO series “The Wire”, is speaking out against a new pig “factory farm” in the UK; which he says is inhumane and will lead to new antibiotic-resistant superbugs.

“The Foston proposal signals a fundamental shift in British farming towards the US and EU system of giant corporate-owned factories confining thousands of pigs in buildings and feeding them antibiotics to keep them alive,” he said. “Treating pigs as industrial production units on such an intensive level is not only shameful but also unsustainable. It is the antithesis of what people want the British countryside and farming to be and it poses a potential threat to human health and the environment.”

The 41-year-old says he became inspired to speak out on the issue after watching the documentary “Pig Business” about vast factory farms in eastern Europe. “So I hope to raise awareness of what is going on and create a bigger amount of support for the locals whose lives are going to be ruined by this,” he told the BBC.

The proposed site of the new farm, to be run by Midlands Pigs Producers, would include 2,500 pigs and 20,000 piglets. Check out a trailer for “Pig Business” below.
