Over 100 nonviolent activists have been arrested at factory farms in Sonoma County for taking direct action to help suffering animals after the government ignored repeated reports of criminal animal cruelty. Thirteen activists face criminal charges, including a total of 47 felonies. Trial was expected to begin in April 2020 for four of the activists, but the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed the court schedule.
