Occupy for All Species: Social Justice in the Age of Climate Change
(a talk by Mickey Z.)
Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Hunter College (main campus)
68th St. & Lexington Ave.
Take #6 train to 68th St.
This event is FREE and open to the public
(Suggestion: Bring photo ID)
Join NYC’s own Mickey Z. – vegan, activist, occupier, photographer, and author of 11 books – for an urgent call-to-arms on post-Sandy life (followed by Q&A/discussion)
The system being challenged by activists of all stripes is built, in a major way, on the exploitation of non-human animals and the exploitation of the eco-system.
It’s all connected within a culture constructed on the insane premise of unlimited growth and therefore must remain connected within any movement claiming to aim for holistic justice.
Make the BIG connections:
Eco-defense is a social justice issue
Animal liberation is a social justice issue
Veganism is a social justice issue
If you’re already working to dismantle corporate power, expand freedoms, and create a safer, more sane culture, why not take things even further and recognize that the mighty 99% includes non-human animals and the ecosystem itself?
Never been to a Mickey Z. event? Well, check your expectations at the door and prepare for a trip well beyond the accepted parameters of the corporate agenda.
Spread the word: bring friends, bring enemies…
Free (delicious) vegan food & refreshments will be provided
Special thanks to P.A.L. (Paths to Animal Liberation)
