Great American Meatout March 20th 2005

San Francisco Bay Area, 22.03.2005 09:24

The Great American Meatout is the world's largest and oldest annual grassroots diet education campaign. Activities include street theater, lectures, public dinners, food samplings, leafleting, and information tables called "steakouts." Vegetarians ask family, friends, and the general public to consider going meatless for a day, a week, or even a lifetime. People are encouraged to "kick the meat habit on March 20 and explore a wholesome, nonviolent diet of fruits, vegetables and whole grains." Locally, for the 20th annual Great American Meatout, East Bay Animal Advocates sponsored a vegetarian feed-in in front of the Burger King at 13th and Broadway in Oakland. Information about the negative effects of modern industrial animal farming and the healthy and environmentally-sound option of vegetarianism was offered to the public, as well as samples of vegetarian turkey "deli slices".

CALL OUT for Visual evidence of Police tactics of Control

Aotearoa, 22.03.2005 02:03

Kia Ora Koutou In the wake of the weekend's events, I've just been approached by an producer about the potential for making an independent documentary about police tactics and attitudes towards demonstrators and activists. I have every reason to believe the documentary, if made, will serve the cause of bringing more public attention to untoward, violent police practices of the kind seen over the weekend. For the documentary to work, a significant amount of visual evidence (moving image; photography etc.) will need to be gathered - and because of time constraints, we'll need to do this in the next two weeks (by the end of the first week of April). The material we're looking for can cover a broad range of situations that fit within the general theme. Your anonymity won't be a problem.

Grand Rapids marches against occupation of Iraq

Michigan, 22.03.2005 00:03

Approximately 75 people gathered in downtown Grand Rapids to call for an end to the United States' occupation of Iraq on the second anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. The rally, organized by the West Michigan Justice and Peace Coalition (WMJPC), featured speeches from two members of the WMJPC (one of whom is running for the school board) and a member of Confronting Empire. After the brief rally, a marching band organized by Confronting Empire led a march through downtown Grand Rapids. The "Radical Anti-Imperialist Marching Band" consisted of around twenty-five people playing a variety of percussion instruments and a saxophone while others twirled anarchist flags. The march was led by a large banner reading "US Out of Iraq" and flanked by banners reading "Stop US Imperialism" and "Capitalism Kills." At several points the march was able to take the streets blocking key intersections in downtown without drawing any attention from the police. Moreover, when the march stopped outside the DeVos Place and stole the attention of many attending the Sporting Expo. Unlike many previous marches in which energy has been low and reactions from passer-bys hostile, the energy on the march was high and the group generally received positive reactions from pedestrians, even when marching in the street.

Great American Meatout March 20th 2005

San Francisco Bay Area, 21.03.2005 09:00

In 1985, the first Great American Meatout was called for in reaction to the U.S. Senate's attempt at the time to endorse a National Meat Week. Starting from a single event that year, it has grown into an international action observed in all 50 states and 21 countries. It is now the world's largest and oldest annual grassroots diet education campaign. Activities include street theater, lectures, public dinners, food samplings, leafleting, and information tables called "steakouts." It is a day when vegetarians ask family, friends, and the general public to consider going meatless for a day, a week, or even a lifetime. People are encouraged to "kick the meat habit on March 20 (first day of spring) and explore a wholesome, nonviolent diet of fruits, vegetables and whole grains." Locally, for the 20th annual Great American Meatout, East Bay Animal Advocates sponsored a vegetarian feed-in in front of the Burger King at 13th and Broadway in Oakland. Information on the negative effects of modern industrial animal farming and the healthy and environmentally-sound option of vegetarianism was offered to the public, as well as samples of vegetarian turkey "deli slices".
