Join us for a free screening of the award-winning film EARTHLINGS (95
min.) and stay for the discussion. We'll address questions including:
- Why are animal rights part of the Socialist Party Platform?
- What does buying organic / local / "free range" / fair trade really
mean?
- How are worker's rights, environmentalism, world health and hunger
related to animal rights?
- Is capitalism a driving force behind animal exploitation?
- Is veganism more than just a diet?
- What is speciesism, and why are capitalists such big fans of it?
- Can you go vegan without giving up the tastes and textures you love?
- How are the consumption of eggs and milk feminist issues?
- Is veganism really just a "personal choice"?
- Should the fight for animal rights take a back seat to the fight
for human rights?
- Is veganism only for people who can afford to shop at pricey health
food stores?
- What's going on right now in the animal rights movement?
- What's going on around these issues in NYC?

"This is the single most powerful and informative movie about
society's treatment of animals! A must-see film for anyone who cares
enough to know."
- Woody Harrelson

EARTHLINGS is a feature-length award-winning documentary about
humans' exploitation of other animals. With an in-depth study into
pet stores, puppy mills and animals shelters, as well as factory
farms, the leather and fur trades, sports and entertainment
industries, and finally the medical and scientific profession,
EARTHLINGS uses hidden cameras and never before seen footage to
chronicle the day-to-day practices of some of the largest industries
in the world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit.
Powerful, informative and thought-provoking, EARTHLINGS is by far the
most comprehensive documentary ever produced on the correlation
between nature, animals, and human economic interests. Produced by
Nation Earth. Music by Moby. Narrated by Joaquin Phoenix.

SARASOTA, Fla., June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- If you have ever heard of "Super Size Me," the junk food documentary, then get ready for a stunning look at the other side of the dinner table. Scheduled for release this
summer is "Supercharge Me ... 30 Days Raw."
(Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20060622/FLTH011LOGO )
And we mean "RAW."
"Supercharge Me ... " is a "rawcumentary" -- a film showing what happens when one eats only vegan, raw, organic food -- and nothing else -- for a month. This is the story of a woman who wanted to fulfill a
lifelong dream: to dress up as a Las Vegas showgirl for Halloween. But that dream met reality in the mirror -- and she knew something had to be done.
Her odyssey took her from Sarasota, Florida to San Diego, where she began a 30-day raw food detox program. The regimen was difficult to follow at first because it had little in common with the way she
was accustomed to eating. Raw foodists eliminate from their diet all but uncooked "living" foods. These foods include organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, sprouted grains and juices. Some believe raw food to
be more nutritious than cooked foods because the foods' digestive enzymes and nutrients are intact.
Documentary cameras followed this young woman as she interviewed doctors, raw food gurus, celebrities (Ben Vereen and Kathy Sledge) and a variety of other people from around the world who follow the
raw food lifestyle. And the lenses captured her daily determination to follow the program for one month.
You'll definitely want to see what happens during this woman's quest to turn herself into the Las Vegas showgirl of her childhood dreams.
"Supercharge Me ... 30 Days Raw" is being produced by Emporia Pictures.
