Jerome Flynn, who played Bronn in HBO’s Game Of Thrones, teamed up with the “Pigs In Chains” campaign. Flynn crouched on all fours in a steel cage that approximates the size of cages and gestation crates pigs are trapped in for a lifetime of suffering. The actor and charity Farms Not Factories is asking people to sign a letter asking grocery stores Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Greggs, and pizza giant Domino’s to only use “high welfare pork”. Although this campaign is not concerned directly with animal rights, rather with welfare, as a performance in it's own standing, messaging around animal rights can clearly be gleaned.
