Aurelia Addiambo, the Africa coordinator at the Open Wing Alliance, discusses the rising trend of factory farming and the use of cages in Africa due to increased animal product consumption. She highlights the unique complexities of animal advocacy and campaigning in the region. The Open Wing Alliance, a global coalition, works through corporate campaigns to end the abuse of chickens.
