# Thu May 27 5th week in row, activists will be protesting KFC's cruelty to
chickens at the KFC at 510 Miller Ave in Mill Valley, just over the GG
Bridge. We'll be there from 11:30-12:30 and are hoping to have a great
turnout this week. The manager has said that his business suffers every
Thursday when we're there, and the KFC is right near a high school, where
lots of teenagers either go to or pass KFC for lunch, so we reach a great
audience. We'll supply the signs and leaflets. Just bring yourself!!

with pepper spray and other policeweapons, treating wounds and sprains,
herbal first aid, and emotional aftercare. There are no prerequisites and
no prior medical knowledge or experience is necessary. While this is a
basic class, it is also useful for people with advanced medical training
