Are you in South West UK? Join Bristol Animal Rights Collective for a very interesting talk about animal rights, indigenous struggles and the fight of animal and human liberation in Mexico. We’ve also heard they will be sorting out another workshop in London so keep your eyes open!
“Learn about the history, challenges, victories and hopes of the Mexican AR movement. Learn what it is like to fight for animal and human liberation from the perspective of a Native American and an anti-speciesist queer activist.
