PETER YOUNG (vegan straightedge) [11 Nov 2007|10:59pm]


"Just released from his prison term for releasing thousands of mink in 2005, veteran activist Peter Young is an emerging voice of strength through sacrifice in the struggle for animal liberation and all forms of justice. After serving two years for his role in a two week campaign of fur farm raids across the Midwest, Peter Young has returned to the world on this side of the fence, and brings with him an inspiring story of moving from above-ground activism to midnight raids, prison, FBI wanted status, and beyond.

Pleading guilty to "Animal Enterprise Terrorism" and conspiracy in 2005, Young has remained unapologetic for his role in liberating thousands of mink just weeks before their death at the hands of furriers. His defiant statements to the media and in courtrooms towards animal abusers, and those who would imprison him for acts of compassion, have earned him visibility as a unique voice among direct action prisoners. Listeners will hear first hand perspective on political repression, commentary on the "Green Scare", the prison experience, and liberation struggles today from a man whose only crime was opening cages."

Also information and videos on the torturing of beagle puppies and other animals inside Huntington Life Sciences (where 500 animals die a day, 180,000 a year) and the SHAC7 (www.insidehls.com, www.shac7.com), a bake sale for Andy Stepanian, and more info!

With gas prices predicted to rise again, now is the perfect time to break out your old ten speed and take the streets with your bike! Whether you only take your bike out once a month for mass, commute on your bike, or if you slap on some spandex to prove your bourgeois elitism only on the weekends - you're welcome to come to critical mass! (leave the spandex-clad attitudes in the burbs please!) If you are afraid to hop off the sidewalk (an infinitely more dangerous place to ride your bike), then mass is a safe space to allow you to become comfortable riding your bike on the road (where you should be riding your bike anyways). Critical Mass is a monthly celebration of bicycles and promotes a healthy way of transportation. The streets are ours to take.

OUR critical mass bike ride meets at the NCSU Belltower in Raleigh, NC between 4:30 and 5 to discuss the ride and will leave promptly after.

For more info, check http://www.critical-mass.org

and for the haters, enjoy the gas prices!

@1304 Flint pl Raleigh NC. Bike scavenger hunt starts at 5pm! We did one at our May Day party and it was a lot of fun, so hopefully this one will be just as much fun, if not better. After that we will be having a vegan potluck then the show.

This show is a BENEFIT for ACRe and the Libertalia infoshop. ACRe is a new non-profit dedicated to community advocacy. We are getting a space next week where we can have TENANT-CONTROLLED HOUSING, the LIBERTALIA INFOSHOP / BOOKSTORE, COMMUNITY ART/SHOWSPACE, COMMUNITY GARDEN, etc and we desperately need funds to go to buying books, making copies, and most importantly to set up the downstairs of the space (where almost everything will be, which requires a lot of construction work).

Raleigh, North Carolina Critical Mass this afternoon! Sorry about not posting this earlier, but we're doing our monthly Critical Mass bike ride (www.criticalmass.org) at 4:30 pm in Raleigh! We are meeting at the Belltower on Hillsborough St and we will be leaving between 5 and 5:30. So, if your idea of fun is riding your bike with a bunch of awesome people, you should come out! Also, on a side note, I found a boombox in my old house and I have tied it to my bike, so we can ride while listening to old copies of mixtapes and metallica's master of puppets I have.
