Re: “In the Crosshairs: Hudson Valley Hunters

Hard-wired cultural cliche's are rampant in this article: "communing with nature" (as if one can't do that while NOT killing someone)... that hunting is linked to "conservation" (only by the entities who wish to profit from it; we could be conservationists and direct taxes to support of nature and wildlife, again, without killing anyone), that hunters have "respect" for animals (again, you don't normally kill someone you respect)... and that there is some kind of self-sufficiency that can only be attained by killing another. It goes on and on. It is time we break out of this well-marketed-over-centuries box about hunting to examine who we are today, and how we can best manage and support our natural resources and wildlife now. Wildlife faces record dwindling numbers, and our world is out-pacing our resources. The consumption of meat (farm-raised or wild-caught) is not going to help the situation and we are putting things out of balance. If you want to be in nature, you can go sit out in nature and observe and appreciate it's wonder. But it is time we became a society that didn't enjoy killing, in any way, shape or form, and we stopped celebrating that, promoting that, and letting corporations sell us that notion. The revolution ahead is in the power of plants and in tending the soil responsibly to grow more food for more people (it takes 11-17 pounds of plant protein to create one pound of meat protein.) If we really care about feeding our communities, we can support a food revolution that wants food justice for all - so let's talk veganism and let's talk plant power.

Re: “The Cow as Critic: Art and Animals on Saunders Farm

The Institute for Animal Happiness in Woodstock, NY is a rescue that is starting to feature art on their grounds but only if it also serves the needs of the animals (shade, enrichment, housing, protection) or if it educates the public about animals sentience, animal rights and their overall exploitation.

Re: “Cowspiracy Screens in Kingston 11/13

We are excited about the special guests coming, the Q&A (and later, more talk over drinks at a nice local watering hole) and conversations that will happen... Tickets can ONLY be purchased online via the Tugg link; will not be available at the door, just to clarify (Tugg is community screening platform that enables locals to bring non-mainstream but important films to their neighborhood theater that would not normally get the "corporate" distribution) - http://www.tugg.com/events/11785 See you there!
