Starting this past Sunday, Feb 8th 2015, there is a week of talks, workshops, film viewings, protests, etc. to educate the public about federal US laws that specifically target animal advocates whose work attempts to stop a person or company from profiting from the use of nonhuman animals (which could include nearly all types of non-reformist activism, from protests to liberatory actions).
The only events happening in Canada are in Vancouver, and the closest events to Toronto are happening in NYC. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t be involved. Earth First! has tons of resources on the AETA for you to read, and you can support Kevin Johnson by writing him a letter. He was targeted by the AETA. For more info on Kevin’s support network check out his site here http://supportkevinandtyler.com/
