Talk on Direct Action as "terrorism" + animal rights workshp [27 Oct 2006|11:15am]

I know a lot of you are political, so I hope you don't mind this post.

1) Environmental and Animal Activists Caught in the "War on Terror": Is Prison a Badge or a Burden?

Lee Hall looks at the interaction between activists' tactics and the laws aimed at controlling them. As the "war on terror" meets Internet activism, conspiracy charges and long prison sentences are the hallmarks of modern suppression of dissent. Lee Hall pinpoints the major ways industries have developed to manage activists, and offers a new vision for a successful -- yet radical -- animal and environmental advocacy movement.

Friday, Nov. 3 at 4:30 pm
Free. Vegan snacks provided.
Oberlin College, Wilder Student Union Rm. 101
135 West Lorain St., Oberlin, OH 44074

2) Workshop on Animal Rights Activism: Saturday afternoon, Nov 4 at Oberlin College (time & place TBA). Lee Hall will lead an interactive discussion on campaigns and strategies to help activists design actions that best further animal rights and veganism. Wefarism, militarism, and rights-focused approaches will all be examined. Comment for more information.

THIS PROTEST IS NOT TO DISCOURAGE THE ADOPTION OF ANIMALS FROM THE SHELTER, but rather to give a loved, amazing dog back to his family, and to attempt to treat and protect all dogs capable of rehibilitation. It is entirely normal for a dog who has been in stressful changing enviornments to behave the way that they do. IN FACT, I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE CAPABLE OF CARING FOR A PET TO ADOPT ONE FROM A SHELTER, THE APL INCLUDED.

My dog is sitting in the Cleveland APL. Last night, while I was at work, my parents took him from from room and drove him to the animal shelter.
I adopted him less than two weeks ago, and he very quickly started to show some signs of aggression. He snaped at anybody who tried to touch his collar. After just a day or so of realizing we intended him no harm, he relaxed to that situation. He also became snapy when we tried to take a toy away - or a pillow, a cup, a magazine, etc. Dogs learn to snap (sort of bite with no real intention to press hard or cause harm, just to ward off) in response to situations where that behaviour has worked for them. Having been through two other homes (at least 1 of which was abusive), he likely had this behavious reinforced. I started to work with him this past sunday on his aggression very closely - I provoked him to bit at my arms and each time would say no and correct. He very quickly picked up on the idea that this tactic was no longer working. I started to teach him to give things up through calm assertiveness and I thought him to "relax" on command. I have never seen a dog so smart who learns so quickly. Last friday, Simba had approx. 1 minute where he "lunged" toward my father. I was no there but this is what scared my parents out of him. A dog that wants to break skin CAN - he will GRAB and SHAKE HIS HEAD. If he does NOT behave like this, he is not actually trying to hurt anyone.
On monday, my parents told me they were taking him back to the shelter. I ran barefoot and barely dressed into the streets with the dog and refused to return because I knew that they were going to take him back. I stayed with a friend for a lot of that day, and by the evening my parents called and told me that if he stayed in my room and he didn't lash out again, that it would be okay. In just a few days, Simba learned to listen to be VERY well as described and showed very little aggression once I taught him not to. He could not have made better improvements. He could NOT have done anything MORE right - by my parents had made up their mind about him the instant that they realized he wasn't our last dog, who passed away this past winter.
I was betrayed and behind my back, my parents took him and signed him into the ownership of an organization who's shit I will get to in a moment. I work evenings at a grocery store and I showed up home to the dog, the cage, all of his toys and things just completely gone.
I told my parents before they did that I considered Simba my child. I am worried my relationship with them is very wounded. I just want my dog back.
I arrived at opening at the APL this morning in tears and they told me that he was still alive. One woman, nice but misguaded, took me aside and told me that they could not allow the dog to leave with me. That's when I had to deal with a woman named Lisa - she is the final "say" in every animal's life at that shelter. She admited to me that 54% of the animals they take in are killed, that the organization's reputation is the most important thing to her, and that the lawsuit they're suffering from a dog bite has taught them to kill a lot more animals.
I am dealing with the police, the news, etc.

PLEASE come out to the shelter tommorow if you can between 9am and 7pm (they are open 10am to 6:30pm) to protest this place. I will get it all out in information packets, etc. on location.
The shelter is locared at 1729 Willey Ave, Cleveland, OH, 44113. It's close to the west side market.
THE PROTEST IS NOT JUST FOR SIMBA - The things I heard and learned today are disgusting and an organization cannot pride itself on an image when the picture is so different in the back room.

I feel so, so alone. My dog is my family. I should have protected him harder.


I don't know his current situation but I am hoping it is not too late for him. If there is nothing I can do to save this dog that I love with all of my heart, I will only be able to use it to grow stronger in my conviction to help other dogs and animals that are experiencing similiar circumstances. I will never regret my time with Simba and I haven't hoped so hard for a miracle in so long. Beyond this dog there is an endless supply of others being overlooked and tossed aside.

If you cannot make it, or maybe don't agree at all but you know somebody who does - please, this is life and death for so many animals. pass this information along.

edit: I appreciate all the comments and different opinions. This is not an animal-based community so the reaction should be varied and I appreciated all opinions - even the ones that hurt my little feelings. I'm though.

What are you doing the night of July 3rd? Are you in or near Columbus Ohio?
Rather than navigate the crowds of fireworks celebrants, why don't you dance at
the best industrial club in ohio?

Outland Nightclub will be open at 9 pm, Monday night for a special fireworks
celebration (They should be visible from the patio). If fireworks aren't your
thing, how about dancing. Cyber DJ will be spinning your favorite tunes.

If you bring your Ministry ticket stub, entrance at the door is FREE

Hope to see you there!
