leave a comment »

So we’re back on track! We’ll be showing an inspiring film in town (again!), discussing serious stuff, eating yummy vegan food and partying wild. All In One! I’m gonna turn into DJ again and will be playing a lot of good tunes too!

The Movie Bold Native is coming back to Dublin on the 4th Aug for another screening by ALiberation. Also Animal Rights activists will hold a Q&A session along with delicious vegan food and an afterparty run by DJ Mister Kruk.

Bold Native

Bold Native is a fiction feature film. Charlie Cranehill, an animal liberator wanted by the United States government for domestic terrorism, emerges from the underground to coordinate a nationwide action as his estranged CEO father tries to find him before the FBI does. The film simultaneously follows a young woman who works for an animal welfare organization fighting within the system to establish more humane treatment of farmed animals. From abolitionists to welfarists, Bold Native takes on the issue of modern animal use and exploitation from several angles within the context of a road movie adventure story.

After 3 successful screenings in Ireland, ALiberation will be showing this amazing movie again. This time AR activists will host a Q & A afterwards via Skype about their involvement in the Animal Rights movement. This will be followed by delicious vegan food and an after-party that will take us into the early hours.

DJ Mister Kruk will be playing lots of political, vegan and environmental tunes! From riotous Atari Teenage Riot & Comrade Malone to the superb Irie Revoltes & Dead Prez.

Speakers to be announced shortly!

There will be a great conference on Animal Rights in Ireland soon! It’s all about sharing experience, reporting on progress, networking, and “recharging our batteries.” It brings our movement together under the banner of animal liberation from all forms of human oppression. We discuss and confront the terror perpetrated every day against billions of innocent, sentient nonhuman animals.
