|7||8||9||10||11||12 All Day Petland Protest at 10:00 am
If you have to be picky about which protests you attend, pick this one and spend an hour or two at the All Day Petland Protest from 10:00am-6:00 pm at the Petland store at 2123 Old Hudson Road in St. Paul on Saturday, June 21. Help send a message loud and clear that we are not going away until Petland stops selling animals from commercial breeders. Even if you can only come for part of the protest, please try to make it. The animals need you to help educate the public on their behalf. Invite your friends. Help us spread the word. Remember that we do not park or trespass in the Petland parking lot. Parking is available in the St. Paul Youth Services lot to the north of the strip mall. RSVP at Minnesota Animal Rights Meetup: http://www.meetup.com/Minnesota-Animal-Rights-Meetup/
|14 Book Group: Vegetarian Myth at 6:30 pm
The Vegetarian Myth Book Discussion Group on Monday, July 14, 6:30pm-8:00 pm, Minneapolis Central Library, 300 Nicollet Mall, Mark E. Johnson Conference Room N-202. Some books are just so misguided and poorly researched that they must be read by those the author attacks. The Vegetarian Myth by Lierre Keith is one of them. A supposed 20 year vegan, Keith makes the argument that a omnivorous diet, not veganism, is better for the animals and the environment. But although her arguments are fallacious, people are buying into the myths Keith peddles, which is why every vegan activist should know this book and be prepared to discuss its shortcomings. Of course, we do not want anyone buying the book so for a free copy of the book, contact Kim Socha at firstname.lastname@example.org.
