Jake Conroy aka The Cranky Vegan. Interview and Q&A
19th March 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
“15 years ago a group of activists known as the SHAC 7 were found guilty of using their website to incite attacks on those who did business with Huntingdon Life Sciences, one of the biggest animal testing labs of its kind.
In response to a grassroots campaign against injustice, the FBI and US government threw their full weight into branding these young people as terrorists and getting them put away.
The documentary The Animal People tells the story of the SHAC campaign, allowing us to learn from history when developing our own strategies. Last month as part of our ongoing Animal Rebellion Arts Space we sat down and watched this documentary and now we’re going to have the chance to discuss it as a whole organisation!
Come along to hear from Jake Conroy, one of the SHAC 7 and long-time animal and climate justice activist. We’ll be asking Jake some questions about the strategies and tactics used by SHAC in the US as well as opening it up to questions from the audience so come prepared.
If you haven’t seen the film The Animal People – it is a documentary about SHAC 7. March 10th is its last day on Netflix.”
