How Animal Rights Protests Work
The Bricks and Bullhorns of SHAC
The November Anarchist Forum (NYC)

On Tuesday, November 12, at 7:30pm, the Libertarian Book Club's
Anarchist Forum welcomes Kevin Jonas & Andrew Stepanian of SHAC
speaking on "How Animal Rights Protests Work."

SHAC (Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty) is an animal rights group that
for the last three years has effectively fought the inhumane practices
of the animal vivisection industry.  Kevin and Andrew will describe
the Direct Action tactics and strategies they have so successfully
used that The Financial Times has said SHAC is "succeeding against
Capitalism where Karl Marx, the Bader-Meinhof Gang, and the Red
Brigade failed."

After their presentation Kevin and Andrew will answer questions about
how the Direct Action methods they employ can usefully be applied by
other groups working for change. They will also respond to whatever
comments the audience wishes to make.

The event will take place at the Brecht Forum on the 10th floor of 122
West 27th St. [between 6th and 7th Aves.], a short walk from the 28th
St. 1, 2, N, and R stops, the 34th St. B, D, and Q stop, and the 23rd
St. F and V stop.

There is no set fee for the presentation, but a contribution to aid
the LBC is requested.  If you have questions, contact the
LBC/Anarchist Forum, 212-979-8353, 339 Lafayette St., Room 202, NYC,
NY 10012 or e-mail: roberterler@erols.com.
