Thanks to everyone that made it to our Earthlings screening on Tuesday night! I know it is a difficult film to watch, and I commend you all for making it through the entire documentary. So many people are determined to remain ignorant to the suffering of animals on this planet at our hand, thank you for refusing to accept business as usual.

For those that did not get to see it, Earthlings is definitely a film that EVERYONE should see. You can watch the entire documentary free online. It is a powerful and enlightening film addressing the ways in which humans exploit animals for food, clothing, scientific research, entertainment, and as pets. This documentary teaches us what animals endure every day for our lavish and selfish demands. They do not have the option to turn away from the truth, and neither should we. It will change how you view the world and your fellow earthlings. Please watch it. Click the banner below to see the full length feature.

Primate Liberation Week: October 17-24 

PRIMATE LIBERATION WEEK PROTEST! Wednesday, October 21st, 4 to 6pm 

In order to speak up for the 69,990 primates imprisoned in US labs for experimentation, some people from the DC animal rights community will be protesting the National Institute of Health (NIH). The NIH funds some of the most wasteful, appalling, and redundant testing on primates. This is an effort to demand that archaic methods of research are brought to a halt and replaced with the numerous alternatives to animal testing that are available. 

Meet at Old Georgetown Rd & West Cedar Lane, Bethesda MD (accessible by metro). Bring comfortable shoes and a loud voice to speak up for those that are silenced.
