New Event: HELP PREVENT FARM ANIMAL CRUELTY IN CALIFORNIA!

From: veganvet

Announcing a new event for The Santa Monica/West Los Angeles Animal Rights Meetup Group!

What: HELP PREVENT FARM ANIMAL CRUELTY IN CALIFORNIA!

When: Thursday, October 4, 7:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Event Description: Hi everyone,

We have a historic opportunity to help prevent cruelty to farmed animals in California. Gestation crates have been banned in Florida and Arizona, and veal crates have been banned in Arizona. Now we here in California have the chance to outlaw these two cruel confinement systems, as well as battery cages, but it's going to take a lot of dedicated activists to make it happen! 650,000 signatures are needed just to get the measure on the November 2008 ballot! Please read the announcement below for details on the upcoming rally. I've included the addresses for kick-off rallies outside of LA in case you'd like to let friends in those areas know, but the closest rally for us is the one on Thurs. Oct. 4th, 7-10 pm at LA Animal Services in Van Nuys.

Thanks so much for caring!

:) Armaiti

HELP PREVENT FARM ANIMAL CRUELTY IN CALIFORNIA!

CAMPAIGN KICK OFF & SIGNATURE GATHERING RALLY

We need your immediate help to put a measure on the 2008 ballot that would outlaw the cruel confinement of veal calves, egg-laying hens, and breeding pigs. This important measure will phase out the use of the gestation crate for pigs, the battery cage for egg-laying hens and prevent the use of the veal crate for male calves.

WE NEED YOUR HELP to collect 650,000 signatures in five short months to qualify this initiative for the November 2008 ballot! Become a crucial member of the team of volunteers that will put this precedent-setting measure on the ballot! Come hear about the campaign and how YOU can get involved in this amazing effort for farm animals!

**Special Guests**
Wayne Pacelle, CEO/President, The Humane Society of the U.S.
Gene Baur, Founder/President, Farm Sanctuary
