Nonhuman Radio – Episode 20-03

On today’s show we’ll be covering a story on the poor oversight of tragic barn fires, followed by a piece on a different interpretation of the changes we are seeing in the dairy industry, and a vegan company that offers a hand up, not a hand out, to struggling farmers — doing what farmers should be doing, growing food to feed people, not to feed animals. We’ll end with a little fluff from the world of entertainment as award shows start to offer plant-based, vegan meals at their glitzy events.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“If a staunch meat-eater looks at your snack of fresh veggies and doesn’t have a ‘good for you!’ in them, there’s no reason to value their opinion.” — Natalie Hanson-Ross, Journalist

On today’s show we covered a few news stories, leading with a new trend in corporate divestment — divestment from the livestock sector. That will be followed by news of proposed legislation by vegan Senator Cory Booker, and short piece on the history of milk overproduction in the United States from the activist group Switch4Good. We’ll end with some extraordinary good news by a very special, very long-lived wild king eider.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“Humans will always live with contradiction, but we can certainly try to minimize it. One way to do so simply, is to go vegan. It’s actually easier to just do that than to wrestle with the deep hypocrisy detailed so well so often. There’s real joy and peace–not to mention deliciousness and environmental respect–in the process.”
–Gretchen Primack, Poet

Chico Vegans: Take Action Now to End Circus Cruelty in California

Hello Chico Vegans!

If you can, please act to help with this upcoming animal welfare legislation 

SB 313, the Circus Cruelty Prevention Act that would ban the use of animals in circuses in California, with the exception of domestic dogs, cats and horses, passed the California Senate!

The bill, sponsored by Senator Ben Hueso, is now in the state Assembly and we can help to ensure passage of this important bill.

A hearing has been scheduled for SB 313 in the Assembly Committee on Water, Parks, and Wildlife on June 18, 2019.

Please take a moment to CALL Assemblyman James Gallagher THIS WEEK, and follow it up with an email at this link – https://lcmspubcontact.lc.ca.gov/PublicLCMS/ContactPopup.php?district=AD03.

When calling, simply state your name, where you live, and that you are urging Assemblyman Gallagher to support SB 313, the Circus Cruelty Prevention Act. It’s that easy! You won’t need to have a conversation, I promise.

Thanks for caring about the animals.

Here’s a sample email:

Dear Assemblymember Gallagher:

As your constituent, I urge you to vote yes on SB 313, the Circus Cruelty Prevention Act, to end the use of animals in circuses, except for horses, cats and dogs.In circuses, animals are often forced to perform under threat of painful punishment, confined in cramped cages and crates as they are transported from show to show, and generally deprived of all that is natural to them.

Please ensure that California joins New Jersey and Hawaii, states that already ban the use of wild animals in circuses and traveling shows, by supporting this important bill. Thank you!

YOUR NAME

Chico Vegan Animal Place Tour

Please join Chico Vegan Meetup for a guided group tour of Animal Place on Saturday June 1, 2019. Afterwards we’ll enjoy a group potluck, talk about the animals we met, what we felt and learned, and how to do more good things for the animals. If you’ve never been to Animal Place, you’re in for a very special experience.

We’ll visit with some of the over 400 rescued farmed animals who call Animal Place home and learn about their history. Due to the virulent Newcastle Disease outbreak in southern California, the resident chickens, turkeys, and guinea fowl are quarantined for their safety and will not be accessible to the public.

The tour will last two hours and will entail a lot of walking on flat ground. The facility is wheelchair-accessible, although there are some rocky portions of the property.

You must wear long-pants and closed-toed shoes or boots (which Animal Place can provide). The property is shared with wildlife, including rattlesnakes. Closed-toed shoes also provide added protection when interacting directly with the large animals.

Children are welcome!

Visitor dogs are not permitted. This is for their safety and that of the animals. Please leave companion dogs at home.

The tour is free, but donations are gladly accepted.

Meet at the Chico Park and Ride at HWY 99 and HWY 32 (lot closest to 99) at 9:15 am. We will leave the park and ride by 9:30 am SHARP.
Saturday June 1, 2019
Park and Ride – 9:15am
Tour – 11am – 1pm
Potluck – 1pm – 2:30pm
