Band Of Mercy Los Angeles is proud to announce the upcoming
Animal Rights Gathering 2010. This year, the Gathering will take place in
Northern Italy and offers a multitude of workshops including abolitionist theory
and practice, repression and how to deal with it, open rescue and much more!
The International Animal Rights Gathering 2010 is being hosted by a collective
of Italian animal liberation activists. The Gathering will start on Thursday 8th
July and continue through Sunday 11th July, ending with breakfast on Monday
The following information concerning the event was collected from the official
We agreed to organize the gathering in our country because we recognize the
importance of an event in which brings together hundreds of activists from tens
of different countries and even different continents, to meet and share ideas,
thoughts, experiences, tactics, projects and fun. The annual gatherings have
been very useful in bringing activists together, sparking cooperation and global
campaigning and giving more strength both to individuals and the animal
Maybe you need to relax and recharge your batteries, you need to pause for
thought, to learn more about practical issues, to evolve as an activist, to meet
interesting people, to be motivated after years of campaigning, to find new
ideas, to meet your friends living far from home and discuss things with them
face to face, to share the empathy you feel for animals being abused worldwide,
and to return home with renewed energy.... You all need something that this
gathering can offer you!
This is not OUR gathering but it is also YOUR gathering. It is something the
whole animal rights/liberation movement should be putting a little effort into,
by attending it, giving talks and workshops, bringing your campaigning material
to spread it and share it with others, helping out with all the work there will
be during the days of the gathering, or even donating to our fund to help us
rent equipment and help activists form less rich countries attend this event.
We hope to see many of you there and that we have a good AR 2010 together!
