Meetup : Animal Suffering Documentary Night

Dis­cus­sion ar­ti­cle for the meetup : An­i­mal Suffer­ing Doc­u­men­tary Night

WHEN: 22 Oc­to­ber 2014 10:18:41PM (-0700)

WHERE: 435 sum­mit ave E #301, Seat­tle, WA

Come join us to watch “Earth­ling” a doc­u­men­tary about an­i­mal suffer­ing with re­gards to an­i­mal con­sump­tion, fol­lowed by a brief video called “Farm to Fridge”.

After that we will head out for veg­e­tar­ian food.

In some of our past events, we dis­cussed the is­sue of an­i­mal suffer­ing as a cause for EA, in­clud­ing some kind of con­ver­sion rate from an­i­mal pain to hu­man pain. This will be a chance to learn more about what an­i­mals go through in or­der for us to eat them.

Ad­di­tion­ally, it has been sug­gested that it is eas­ier to make peo­ple care about an­i­mal suffer­ing than hu­man suffer­ing, so an­i­mal rights causes can be seen as a gate­way drug for hu­man rights causes.

Fi­nally, since we’re all go­ing to be ve­gan in the fu­ture, we might as well start learn­ing about it now :)

Note on venue: there are two cats in res­i­dence, and good luck to you on park­ing.
