Ebook on socialism and animal rights

socialists book coverSocialists and Animal Rights [Kindle Edition] by Jon Hochschartner ($2.99):

The socialist left remains particularly inhospitable for those concerned with animal domestication. In “Socialists and Animal Rights,” Jon Hochschartner begins the important work of bridging the gap between those concerned with class and those concerned with species. In this timely collection of essays, readers will find an examination of the vegetarianism of Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, one man’s contemporary efforts to form an animal-liberationist tendency in the International Socialist Organization, the veganism of Angela Davis, and so much more.

Soil, Struggle and Justice:
Agroecology in the Brazilian Landless Movement

With filmmaker Andreas Hernandez

7pm, Tuesday February 25th
Free
History of Art Gallery, Goldwin Smith Hall Basement level,

This documentary is the story of a cooperative of the Brazilian Landless Movement (MST) in the South of Brazil, which struggled for access to land and then transitioned to ecological agriculture, or agroecology. This MST cooperative is demonstrating the possibility of an alternative model of flourishing rural life, which provides thriving livelihoods for farmers, produces high quality and low cost food for the region, and rehabilitates the earth.

Andreas Hernandez is Chair of the Department of International Studies at Marymount Manhattan College in New York City.
