“Liz Marshall’s upcoming film THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE delves into an issue that is close to our hearts.  As farm animal cruelty investigators we see these suffering ghosts on every investigation. There exist many levels of ghosts in our machine – from the 650 million “food” animals born and killed [...]

Maude Barlow

“For too long, humans have seen animals (and most of nature) as resources for our convenience, pleasure and profit and not as an essential part of the biotic integrity of the earth. We will never be truly human nor have our human rights realized until we start to understand the [...]

“I strongly endorse the efforts of Liz Marshall to raise the consciousness of our society to the plight of countless animals in the machine of our modern world. Since my grandparents’ time we have increasingly divorced ourselves from the other living things in our world. This is not only to [...]

“The machinery of animal exploitation – whether it’s product is food, fiber, research, or entertainment – excels at disassembly.
