Happy New Year from Adirondack Animal Rights

We’d like to wish you all a happy, safe and compassionate new year!

Our first year was a busy and productive one.  We held six vegan potlucks at X’s to O’s Vegan Bakery; three included presentations by Michael Budkie of Stop Animal Exploitation Now!, Anthony Marr of Heal our Planet Earth and Global Anti-Hunting Coalition, and Jenny Brown of Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary.  We tabled at the NY’s Capital Region Vegetarian Expo, handed out literature outlining the cruelties of the dairy industry at a Got Milk? event at Empire State Plaza, collected petition signatures against the legalization of commercial whaling, against marine mammal captivity at Miami Seaquarium, in support of Skye’s Law and against the proposed Bion slaughterhouse in Oswego County.  We organized many protests against vivisection at Albany Medical College, Ringling Bros. and Walker Bros. circuses, the Adirondack Stampede Charity Rodeo, and the fur industry on Fur Free Friday.  We held a vegan bake sale as part of the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale, organized film screenings of The Cove and Sharkwater and campaigned to raise awareness of a beaver skinning demonstration held at the Adirondack Museum.  We had an article discussing the cruel and unnecessary nature of hunting published in the Adirondack Explorer, countless letters to editors were printed in area papers, a few of our events were covered by local news stations and newspapers and we were even blogged about a couple of times.  You can now follow us on Facebook and Twitter, join us on Meetup and ask us any questions you have about animal rights and veganism anonymously on Formspring.

The new year will be bringing many new and exciting things.  We’re revamping the website and we’ve organized our first event of the year: our First Annual Vegan Chili Cookoff at X’s to O’s Vegan Bakery on January 22nd.  (More details to come on that soon!)  We’re also introducing blog posts about many different subjects, so you’ll be seeing much more than just news and updates about events here.  This is going to be a very exciting addition to the website.  If you’d like to submit a blog entry, please send it to us at adkanimalrights@gmail.com for our review.

Is your New Year’s Resolution to go vegan? It’s never too late to choose compassion in the new year! We’ll be releasing details soon about vegan resolution support. Stay tuned for more!

Thank you for your support and keep on fighting for animals’ rights!

Rodeo Protests in Glens Falls

The Adirondack Stampede Charity Rodeo will be at the Glens Falls Civic Center in a couple of weeks.  We hope you’ll join us for a protest both nights before the show.

Protest Schedule:
Friday, November 5th AND Saturday, November 6th
6:30PM
Glens Falls Civic Center
1 Civic Center Plaza
Glens Falls

Rodeos are horribly cruel events and the fact that this one in particular is raising money for charity does not make it acceptable. Terrified animals are routinely electroshocked, punched, taunted, injured and even killed. Animals are taunted and intentionally hurt, which causes them to buck, and ridden, chased, roped and thrown on the ground.

You can check it out yourself here: http://www.youtube.com/user/SHARKonlineorg#p/c/46BB675F2F737228/53/TKiNC-FjXec

Can’t make it to the protests?  You can still speak up for the animals by contacting the following businesses that are either sponsoring the rodeo or selling tickets to the rodeo.  Tell them that by doing so they are supporting cruelty to animals.  If enough people contact them, maybe they’ll think twice about it next time.
