On December 13, Resistance Ecology will embark on another tour with The Bunny Alliance called Grounded in Resistance. We will be meeting with animal advocacy communities around the country and devising strategies for rebuilding the grassroots movement. Animal liberation is more than what the corporate NGOs tell us it is. At its core this is a movement that should be rooted in solidarity with animals who resist their own oppression. At the core, we need an organizing capacity grounded in urgency. Let's mobilize. If you live near one of these cities, please come join us!
Resistance Ecology is back for the third year in a row! We are excited to invite you to the 3rd Annual Resistance Ecology Conference. The conference will be held once again at Portland State University in Portland, OR (on the occupied territories of the Multnomah Chinook), the weekend of June 12-14, 2015.

The realities of racist oppression are told by those who experience them, and this writing is not intended to convey such an understanding. So it is essential to acknowledge the privileged positions from which these words flow...
Cross-posted from Portland Vegans of Color: We, the undersigned, are a coalition of community organizations and local businesses that are in opposition to the blog Thug Kitchen: Eat Like You Give A F*ck, the ongoing book tour of the authors/bloggers, and the sale of The Official Cookbook book locally in Portland. We are reaching out to Powell’s Books because you recently hosted an event on October 13, in which the authors spoke about their book and blog. Additionally, Thug Kitchen: Eat Like You Give A F*ck: The Official Cookbook, is available for purchase at Powell’s stores.
