In the footage:
- We see day old calves being permanently separated from their mother.

- We also learn about the filthy, cramped living conditions many farm animals must endure.
Many viewers will have no idea about the true extent of what they are supporting when they buy meat and dairy.
Why is this Film Important?
The release of Land of Hope and Glory marks a monumental step forward for veganism in the UK. The documentary gives us an unprecedented glimpse into the lives of farm animals in this country.
Despite the success of Earthlings, many claim that the animal abuse depicted in the 2005 US documentary does not take place in UK farms.
The creators behind Land of Hope and Glory have cited this disassociation with animal oppression as the driving force behind their film.
Tired of hearing the phrase ‘that doesn’t happen in our country,’ Surge have set out to lay bare UK farming practices.
Surge’s investigative efforts have provided irrefutable evidence that animals are being wildly mistreated on our own soil.
With this film, the UK vegan movement have an opportunity to bring the fight for animal liberation closer to home than ever.
