There are many people who work very hard for animals that eat meat. We all should work together and welcome those who want to help animals even if we may disagree with some of their views.

I am not a vegan, eat meet and I am a member of this meetup group.  I feel that you can be interested in animal rights and not be a vegan.  JMHO.

Emma-

Do you have any flyers for this film showing?

Veganism is a very important concept in understanding animal cruelty. Simply
put-- you cannot, CANNOT consume meat being an animal activist today, knowing
the cruelty animals suffer before they get to your plate in the modern meat
industry!  Organic and free range alike, these conditions are commercialized to
produce images of green pastures and happy faces for the concerned market-- all
of which are so far from true!

Because the majority of people eat meat blindly, out of social habit or
tradition.. i think everyone who consumes any animal product should educate
themselves.  If you have a flyer designed, I will help distribute.  Otherwise I
will spread the word verbally, myspace, etc.

I think this is a very important topic that should be advertised as much as
possible!  I am a student of SMCC, but can help your USM group in any way
needed!

My personal email address is [address removed].

I also encourage others who recieve this email for any feedback with organizing
a group, advertising, education, or possibile nonprofit ideas on the meat
industry, veganism, etc.

Thanks,
Meeka

Hey everyone,

I am a member of this meet up but haven't been able to attend any  
events. I wanted to share with everyone about ARAT, the Animal Rights  
Activist Team at USM, and that there is always a possibility of  
collaboration for large action. We all have a huge commitment and it  
would be powerful to be known by each other. I will share with the  
team tonight at the meeting about this group. We are also organizing  
the following event.

Meet Your Meat Video Showing and Discussion
Thursday, Nov 13th
7-9pm
The Meg Perry Center
644 Congress Street

The film Meet Your Meat will be shown, both in Spanish and English,  
followed by a discussion. If you have seen this video, or haven't, I  
would encourage you to come for the discussion, and to bring people.  
It is a film of footage from within factory farms, so know that it is  
graphic, yet important to be aware of. We simply have to begin taking  
responsibility for our 'food' system and eating practices.

Thanks for reading, and let me know if you have any questions by replying.

Love and kindness, Emmy
