Occupy for All Species: Social Justice in the Age of Climate Change

Hunter College (main campus)

HW Lobby

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)
