If you have any doubt that southern Ontario is a hotbed of activism for animals, this show will prove it to you! In a whirlwind tour, we will hear from:
- Hannah Lachnit, an organizer of Festival for the Animals, which includes demonstrations at 3 captive animal parks plus a conference at Brock University;
- Mike Nicholson, an organizer of Pigfest (compassionate Guelphites’ answer to Ribfest) and of the Human Rights Are Animal Rights conference;
- Jaydene Lavallie, an organizer of the Animal Rights Day happening at both Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier Universities.
Then, Animal Voices welcomes Rob Stewart back to the show. Following the success of his film Sharkwater, Stewart aims to educate people about ocean acidification, the “evil brother of climate change”, with his new film Revolution and book Save The Humans. Stewart will also chat with us about how to get youth involved in environmental issues, and re-awaken adults’ childlike fascination with animals.
