Las Vegas Action Against the AETA

aeta2Next weekend is National Weekend of Action Against the AETA. AETA stands for Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, a federal law that prohibits any person from engaging in certain conduct “for the purpose of damaging or interfering with the operations of an animal enterprise”. This is a law that does not differentiate between constitutional protests and actual criminal acts. It forces you to be silent about animal abuse in fear of being charged with “terrorism”. The people who support this act are the fur industry, the cattle industry, and every other industry that would want to see animal rights activists taken out of the picture.

In support of raising awareness against this law, Sunset Activist Collective in Las Vegas has arranged for a demonstration in front of the Federal Building in Downtown Las Vegas on Sept 5, 6, and 7 from 3pm to 5pm. You are encouraged to wear all black and a black bandanna or mask if you’ve got it!  Literature and banners will be present, and feel free to bring signs, stencils and posters if you’d like! Bring instruments (or pots and pans, etc.) 

This is a law that could have an effect on us all if we do not know how to play this game correctly. MojaveDolphins encourages you to get involved in your local events this weekend and learn more about what is happening, and could happen to you!

in actuality, the language of the AETA covers many First Amendment activities, such as picketing, boycotts and undercover investigations if they “interfere” with an animal enterprise by causing a loss of profits. So in effect, The AETA silences the peaceful and lawful protest activities of animal and environmental advocates. (Source)

 

In other words, those “who conscientiously believe that it is their duty to peacefully
protest” through civil disobedience could be labeled terrorists. But only if they intended
to make a difference. (Source)

Bringing O’Barry to Las Vegas.

Every year on September 1st, the annual small cetacean hunt and slaughter begins in Taiji, Japan. The Academy Award winning documentary The Cove highlights this brutal event. We would love to offer the people of Las Vegas a chance to open their eyes and make a difference.

mb3benwhiteFree the Mojave Dolphins have been working since May to put together an event for dolphins like Las Vegas has never seen before.  Our team has been in contact with Mr. Ric O’Barry himself, and he is ready to come out to the desert and let his voice be heard. We will be offering you a chance to meet and greet with the man who spearheaded the cetacean rights movement.

In order for this event to happen, we have to ask for some help. We are still a couple hundred dollars short. All money donated will be used on the venue and advertising the event. Free the Mojave Dolphins will not be making a profit. Any extra funds collected will be donated to Ric O’Barry and the Dolphin Project.

If you would like to donate to our cause and help bring Ric O’Barry to Las Vegas, we would really appreciate it. If you are unable to donate- do not feel bad! We completely understand. We feel very blessed to have received the help we have already. Here is the link: http://www.gofundme.com/8jx858
