Great podcast + Two OHIO animal rights talks

1) Tune into the 22 Oct. 2006 the Vegan Freak Radio interview with Lee Hall, author of Capers in the Churchyard: Animal Rights Advocacy in the Age of Terror for a great discussion.

"In addition to talking about the main themes at the heart of Lee’s most recent book, we also discuss the politics of veganism; animal welfarism, Whole Foods, and John Mackey; and much, much more."

2) Talk at Oberlin College: Environmental and Animal Activists Caught in the "War on Terror": Is Prison a Badge or a Burden?

Lee Hall looks at the interaction between activists' tactics and the laws aimed at controlling them. As the "war on terror" meets Internet activism, conspiracy charges and long prison sentences are the hallmarks of modern suppression of dissent. Lee Hall pinpoints the major ways industries have developed to manage activists, and offers a new vision for a successful -- yet radical -- animal and environmental advocacy movement.

3) Workshop on Animal Rights Activism: Saturday afternoon, Nov 4 at Oberlin College (time & place TBA).

Wefarism, militarism, and rights-focused approaches will all be examined. Comment for more information.

Bio: Lee Hall, author of the new book Capers in the Churchyard: Animal Rights Advocacy in the Age of Terror, is the legal director for Friends of Animals, an international animal-advocacy group founded in 1957. As a member of the adjunct faculty at Rutgers University at Newark, New Jersey, Hall’s teaching focused both on animal law and the experiences of political minorities in the U.S. prison system.
