This month’s isssue of Satya magazine continues where the September issue left of in its exploration of the pros, cons, and murky inbetweens of “humane” meat, eggs, and dairy and more specifically the animal right/ animal welfare movement’s relationship to these products.
Some issue highlights include an interview with famed ethicist Peter Singer, as well as an interview with Lee Hall, who is legal director of Friends of Animals, author of the recently released Capers in the Churchyard: Animal Rights Activism in the Age of Terror, and a firm abolitionist. The folks from Animal Acres, Animal Place, OohMahNee Farm Animal Sanctuary, and Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary also weigh in with their perspectives on the “humane” animal products issue as people who care for the critters this issue affects most.
Judging from the reader comments on SuperVegan, I imagine “humane” animal products is a topic you all would like to add the two-cents burning a hole in your pocket to. Fortunately, tonight Satya hosts a discussion on the issue at Jivamukti Yoga Studio in NYC. This forum will address questions like, what does the trend toward “humane” animal products mean for the animals, vegan activism and meat consumption? Satya staff and some of the contributors will be in attendance.
Thursday, October 12. 7-9pm. Jivamukti Yoga Studio Cafe, 841 Broadway (btw 13 & 14 Streets), 2nd Floor. Free. Info and RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org. (Those of you who aren’t in NYC can discuss the issue on the Satya forum.)
