UGA students paid to watch animal cruelty video

It's not everyday college students get paid to watch a movie in between classes.

A bus was parked outside of Memorial Hall on Wednesday and Thursday morning and afternoon asking students if they wanted to be paid $1 to watch a movie.

This was not a scam. The University's Speak Out for Species organization joined with Farm Animal Rights Movement's national campaign, 10 Billion Lives Tour, to educate students on animal cruelty in factory farming.

FARM is traveling across the nation to college campuses and paying students $1 to watch a four-minute video about the treatment of cows, pigs, turkeys and chicken in the food industry. The payment came from a FARM donation fund.
