Animal Rights Film Screening of "Behind the Mask"
with guest speaker Peter Young
February 23rd, 2008

Noted animal rights activist Peter Young is going to give a talk about his experiences with the animal liberation movement followed by a screening of the film "Behind the Mask", a thought provoking film that gives an in-depth look at the lives and motivations of animal liberationists. This will be an event that leaves you wondering why there isn't more being done. SHAC 7 is comprised of six individuals whose 1st Amendment rights were violated when they were sent to prison for defending animals by merely drawing attention to the horrors that go on at an animal testing facility called Huntingdon Life Sciences.

@ Louden Nelson Community Center

6 pm - 9pm
Suggested donation of $5 - $10+
(But no one will be turned away for a lack of funds. All the money made during the evening will go directly to the SHAC 7 support fund.)

support the SHAC 7

On September 12, 2006, the SHAC 7 were sentenced to lengthy prison sentences for their part in a campaign to close down notorious animal testing lab Huntington Life Sciences. None of them were accused of committing any illegal acts; they were simply accused of involvement with a website and newsletter that reported on protest activity and provided information about the lab and its supporters. The SHAC 7 are appealing their unjust sentences, and they need your support. Please write them in prison, donate, get the word out, and keep fighting!
