- George Bernard Shaw, a Nobel Prize winner and a Socialist

(Take #6 train to Bleecker St., F/V/B/D to Broadway/Lafayette, or N/R

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
- 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.

made for humans any more than black people were made for whites or
women for men." - Alice Walker
