Film Series on Animal Agony

DOUBLE FEATURE:

California Egg Industry Documentary
and
Wegmans Cruelty

Presented by Christine Morrissey
Animal Rights Advocates:
http://www.eastbayanimaladvocates.org

Tonight's film, "California Egg Industry Documentary," is the world premier of East Bay Animal Advocates' new documentary, an expose of California's inhumane egg industry. Each year over 19 million egg-laying hens are raised in concentrated confinement to produce table eggs for California consumers. According to the California Poultry Workgroup, close to 100 percent of egg-layers are confined to battery cages. For more information, visit http://www.cal-eggs.com.

“Wegman's Cruelty” is a half hour documentary produced by a small investigative team from the organization Compassionate Consumers. Organization members contacted Wegmans Food Markets to try to hold some meaningful dialogue about the conditions at Wegmans Egg Farm, and were then misled and dismissed by Wegmans' representatives. The team set out to capture actual footage inside the farm and create a film based on their experience. For more information, visit http://www.wegmanscruelty.com.

Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our Humanist Coffee House.

The films are FREE but $5 donations are accepted.
