The world’s largest environmental organizations are failing to address the single most destructive force facing the planet today. Follow the shocking, yet humorous, journey of an aspiring environmentalist, as he daringly seeks to find the real solution to the most pressing environmental issues and true path to sustainability.

Everyone, vegan or not, is welcome to come and enjoy the film. After the movie we’ll have a short discussion about the issues brought up in the film, and our team will take questions from the audience.


Plot summary by the creators of Speciesism:

“Modern farms are struggling to keep a secret. Most of the animals used for food in the United States are raised in giant, bizarre “factory farms,” hidden deep in remote areas of the countryside. Speciesism: The Movie director Mark Devries set out to investigate. The documentary takes viewers on a sometimes funny, sometimes frightening adventure, crawling through the bushes that hide these factories, flying in airplanes above their toxic “manure lagoons,” and coming face-to-face with their owners.

But this is just the beginning. In 1975, a young writer published a book arguing that no justifications exist for considering humans more important than members of other species. It slowly began to gain attention. Today, a quickly growing number of prominent individuals and political activists are adopting its conclusions. They have termed the assumption of human superiority speciesism. And, as a result, they rank these animal factories among the greatest evils in our history. Speciesism: The Movie brings viewers face-to-face with the leaders of this developing movement, and, for the first time ever on film, fully examines the purpose of what they are setting out to do.”

Mini-Potluck! 
We’ll be sharing food at this event as well. Even though this program is presented by Huntsville Vegan and Animal Rights League, non-vegans are very welcome. That said, we ask that if you bring something to share that it be vegan. If you are not sure about something, please contact us!

Food Not Bombs Food Share + Really Free Market

Image

Huntsville Food Not Bombs is an all-volunteer organization that provides warm meals to anyone free of charge. Through donations and the recovery of food that would otherwise go to waste we are able to serve meals to those who might otherwise go hungry.

Join us for the first new food share by Huntsville Food Not Bombs on Saturday, October 26th at 1pm in Big Spring Park, in downtown Huntsville. All are welcome. For the sake of inclusion, food justice, health, expense, and peace, everything we serve is completely free of animal products. If anyone would like to help us serve food, please just let us know– we’d like to eat too!

If you’d like to volunteer time or ingredients for food prep, we’re meeting early Saturday morning at Alex and Natalia’s house in Madison. Cleanup help after the food share is also very much appreciated.

Just prior to when we serve food, we invite everyone to take part in a Really Free Market. That’s where you bring all the stuff you might otherwise sell or donate and bring it to freely share with anyone who might need or want it (and of course everyone is free to take anything themselves). We’re setting out a tarp at 12:45.

The Really Free Market is a place where people come together to take what they want and give what they can. There is no money, trade, barter, or remuneration of any kind. What can you bring? Anything you’d like to give. From clothes that no longer fit to books, stories, crafts, services, performances, music, a skill you’d like to share, or anything else that you think would benefit the community.

Don’t have anything to give away? Don’t worry; no exchange is necessary to participate. Please come out and take anything you like. It’s FREE!
