UPC's Direct Action for Animals Conference


June 26-27, 1999
Send $20 Registration to UPC To Reserve Your Place

The topic of our Direct Action for Animals Conference grew out of the lively
debate that appeared in The Animals' Agenda, July/August 1998
November/December 1998.

This Conference is an Opportunity for activists to meet and share their
strategies, goals, and concerns regarding justice for nonhuman animals and
how to accomplish this. It's an opportunity for people who have met through
the pages of magazines and on the Internet to meet face to face in a friendly,
informal, yet focused setting. It will place the discussion about direct action at
UPC's chicken sanctuary. While animals are unable to take part in the
movement on their behalf, their presence inspires us and reminds us of what
we are working to accomplish, and for whom.

Starting Time: The conference starts at 1:00 pm on Saturday June 26.
We will have a catered vegan meal with live guitar music by Jim Harris
on Saturday evening (and other food, of course!), plus mingling and
foodsharing with the chickens and ducks. On Sunday the conference goes
from 9 am to 5 pm.

Direct Action for Chickens: A Direct Action for Chickens will take place early
Monday morning June 28th for those who are interested in taking part. Every
weekday thousands of chickens are trucked to the slaughterplants on Rt 13
and Rt 50. In addition, there's a Perdue chicken complex being built down the
road that's crying for a protest demonstration. Monday's Direct Action will be
worked out at the conference.
