Free to All
Finally, an animal liberation conference that blends together theory and action! Yes everyone from activists to academics are invited. Are you not interested in arguing about the importance of direct action or how we should not focus specifically on non-human issues? Well we aren’t either. We are interested in discussing animal liberation in the sense of liberation of humans from a capitalist society and from human prisons around the world and other species. We are interested and involved in the environment, Black liberation, farm-worker rights, political prisoner support, feminism, ending racial profiling, prison abolition, indigenous land struggles, eliminating sweatshops, and all other forms of oppression and domination. This is truly animal liberation!
This conference is based on grass-roots involvement, and this year we are amazed with the amount of people and groups interested in participating. We will have three sessions at a time: a panel, a workshop, and another discussing campaigns. So join us for a free and amazing grass-roots conference for the liberation of all living things.
Book Release – April 22, 2006
That same day will be an international book release of a very controversial and radical book, Igniting a Revolution: Voices in Defense of Mother Earth, published by AK Press, co-edited by Steven Best and Anthony J. Nocella, II with more than 45 authors. Of course not everyone can make it, but we will have more than a dozen authors from the book, discussing their articles, their thoughts on the book, and where they see the movement going.
Eco-Defense Training by Central New York Earth First! and Revolt – April 23, 2006
Also on that same weekend (for free of course) is an eco-defense training, which will teach everything from nonviolent blockades to climbing trees and banner drops. Don’t miss out on this intense and outstanding workshop, which will provide you skills and tools to create positive social change in your community.
