An Activist Sampler

We feature the premiere broadcast of Mirha-Soleil Ross’ interview with UK’s John Curtin, former ALF member and current public educator. In this provocative conversation, Curtin reflects on animal liberation praxis, social change, and media representations of his activism.

Then we’ll be joined by Melissa Tkachyk, Earthroots‘ Wilderness Campaigner / Wolves Ontario! Coordinator, and Earthroots’ Campaign Director. They will give us the low down on dissection and tell us about their efforts with the Student Choice Policy on animal dissection. Melissa will also speak on Earthroots’ work to protect the Double-crested Cormorant.

Finally, Tim Midgely, International Director of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, will share his take on this year’s seal hunt protest and the Sea Shepherd’s controversial strategies.
