Direct Action For Animals
JUNE 26 - 27, 1999

"What I think is right strategy and right psychology is for the people who liberate animals to come forth and identify themselves as the people who did it"

-Tom Regan, Civil Disobedience
Direct Action

Do you agree? This is one of the many questions we will discuss. United Poultry Concerns will hold an informed and even heated debate about Direct Action for Animals: What does it mean? How does it work? How does it help animals? Is it the only way?

Where: United Poultry Concerns, Machipongo, VA located on Virginia's Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay.

When: Saturday June 26, 1-6PM & Sunday June 27, 9AM-5PM.
