Dying for a burger (London McD demo)
14th October 2007 early demo report: nearly 30 people took part in the London leg of the worldwide anti-McDonald's day. It started at noon at the Leicester Square McDonald's. There was a Ronald McDonald attacking a person dressed as a cow. The cow went down well with the kids and even some adults! Lots of leaflets were handed out and the public seemed to be receptive on the whole. Also, the police were noticeable by their absence. The demo moved onto the Shaftesbury Avenue McDonald's and finished at about 3.30.

Animal Rights Gathering 2007

Last weekend saw a really successful gathering by the Animal Rights community of this Island. Although this year's international Gathering was held in Holland, people also came from Poland, Germany, Austria and South Africa amongst other places. Many excellent workshops were held, and there was much discussion about the need to develop links between Animal Rights and the growing Eco Action movement concerned with human induced Climate Change. We in the Animal Rights community are fully aware that no matter how successful we might be, without serious action on Climate Change it matters little. We are keen, therefore, to show solidarity with all those who are committed to Direct Action in support of the Earth and all Life, and will be offering our full support to next year's Climate Camp.

Playing with Fire: The Story of Daniel McGowan, "eco-terrorism" and the Green Scare

Playing with Fire coverGrowing up in New York City, Daniel McGowan saw first-hand how pollution fogged the air and fouled the beaches in some of the city’s poorest communities, setting him on a lifelong path of environmental and social justice.
