DO YOU LOVE ANIMALS, REALLY? DO YOU CAGE, EXPERIMENT ON, TORTURE, KILL, EAT AND MAKE PROFIT OFF OF EVERYTHING YOU LOVE?
Gary Yourofsky, one of the foremost animal rights lecturers in the United States will be speaking on Wednesday November 10th from 7-9 pm in the AG Science building, AG 226, on the campus of Fresno State. Yourofsky,34,holds a B.A. in journalism from Oakland U. and a radio/broadcasting degree from Specs Howard School of Broadcast Arts. He has spoken to thousands of students about the true meaning of animal rights in more than 200 middle schools, high schools and universities nationwide, including NYU, U. of Florida, U. of Arizona and Colorado U.-Boulder. Thought-provoking prose, inspiring stories, indisputable facts, quotations ranging Pythagoras to Alice Walker, plus graphic footage from fur farms, laboratories, factory farms and more, are the basis for a simple plea: that people extend their circle of compassion to animals, and ultimately, go vegan. Yourofsky has walked the talk, having been arrested numerous times for random acts of kindness and compassion. In 1997, Gary was arrested after liberating 1,542 minks scheduled for certain death from the Eberts Fur Farm in Blenheim, Ontario.
Yourofsky's inspirational actions have been covered by every newspaper, radio outlet, and TV station in his native Detroit, and by countless other media outlets nationwide. Author Charlotte Montgomery even included a chapter about Yourofsky in the book "Blood Relations: Animals, Humans and Politics." Yourofsky also wrote an essay in 2004 for the first-ever book about the Animal Liberation Front. Dr. Steve Best, chair of Philosophy at UTEP, oversaw the production of "Terrorists or Freedom Fighters." The essay can be read online at http://www.adaptt.org. Gary has also written, produced and done several voiceovers for graphic, hard-hitting TV ads that have aired in LA and Detroit.
Open to the public. Admission is free. Please join us. Sponsored by the Campus Peace and Civil Liberties Coalition and Fresno Voices for Animals.
