Even Ronald McDonald can’t run from the law.
If you live in NYC and don’t already have plans for tonight, you may wanna check out a talk with Tom Regan, a leading philosophical spokesperson for animal rights and the emeritus professor of philosophy at North Carolina State University-Raleigh. He’ll speak on the revolutionary nature of animal rights, describe some of the major obstacles standing in the way to their recognition, and call upon activists to redouble their efforts on behalf of true animal liberation– arguing not for larger cages, but empty cages. (3/20, 6-7:30pm, 40 Washington Square South, Vanderbilt Hall, Greenberg Lounge, Free, Bring photo ID)
If you’re on the other side of this great continent tonight, then join the folks at Food Fight Grocery for their benefit movie night for SHAC7‘s appeal fund. They’re showing Richard Pryor: Live on the Sunset Strip. (3/20, 7:30 pm, Hollywood Theater, 4122 N.E. Sandy Blvd., Hollywood district, Portland, Oregon, $5 donation)
New Yorkers can look also forward to a screening of McLibel on Thursday evening. McLibel is a critically-acclaimed documentary about the efforts of two pamphleteers to defend themselves against a McDonald’s libel suit, resulting in the longest trial in British history and an extensive expose of McDonald’s horrendous practices. (3/23, 7 pm, 115th & Amsterdam (NE corner), William & June Warren Hall, Room 103, Free)
