Movie Event: Sharkwater, 10 December 2011

Posted in Events by ALib on the November 19th, 2011

Movie Event: “Sharkwater” with talk after by John Flynn

ALiberation together with Sea Shepherd Ireland invite you to the screening of a great movie “Sharkwater”! The screening will be followed by a talk with John Flynn who will be just back from Ghana with first hand knowledge of the shark fin trade in the country.

Movie Event: “Sharkwater”.
When: Saturday 10th December 2011.
Time: 7pm.
Price: Free
Contact: ALiberation, , 0863203643
Where: The Happy Pear, Church Road, Greystones, Co Wicklow.
Map: maps.google.com

“Sharkwater” takes you into the most shark rich waters of the world, exposing the exploitation and corruption surrounding the world’s shark populations in the marine reserves of Cocos Island, Costa Rica and the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador.

In an effort to protect sharks, Stewart teams up with renegade conservationist Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Their unbelievable adventure together starts with a battle between the Sea Shepherd and shark poachers in Guatemala, resulting in pirate boat rammings, gunboat chases, mafia espionage, corrupt court systems and attempted murder charges,


forcing them to flee for their lives.

Through it all, Stewart discovers these magnificent creatures have gone from predator to prey, and how despite surviving the earth’s history of mass extinctions, they could easily be wiped out within a few years due to human greed.

Sea Shepherd and ALiberation will have a stand with information and some merchandise.

Hare Coursing Protest, 3rd Feb 2010

Posted in Events by ALib on the January 29th, 2010

Hare Coursing Protest

The Association of Hunt Saboteurs (AHOS) and the Campaign for the Abolition of Cruel Sports (CACS) have organized a demonstration to highlight what Hare Coursing in Ireland is really about and to have it banned.

The event will take place at the Hare Coursing’s main event in Clonmel.
There is a bus organized, so if you are interested please see the contacts below.
If attending please highlight the violation of rights and the exploitation of both hares and greyhounds who are both victims of hare coursing.

Hares are kidnapped from their homes in the wild and are held captive in a pen with other non solitary hares for about a month before they are used for hare coursing. They are then “trained” and used as prey for 2 speeding greyhounds who hunt them down. They will be forced to endure stress, mauling, being tossed into the air, severe injuries and/or death among other things.

Greyhounds are used to hunt down the hapless hares. They


compete with each other to catch the hare. All this for the cheap trills of humans.

When the greyhounds become too old or slow, they become “disposable”. The greyhounds are subject to many of the same exploitations as the dogs in the greyhound racing industry.

Vegan Week in Dublin, organised by AFAR

Posted in Events by ALib on the November 7th, 2009

Vegan Week,
Sat 31st Oct 09

The 4th annual World GO VEGAN Week took place this year from October 25 through 31.

To celebrate vegan week, AFAR held a vegan information table and handed out leaflets to members of the public on North Earl street, in Dublin city centre. AFAR were joined by members of ALiberation and other vegan activists.
The table attracted many people who were curious about veganism.

Veganism is the starting point for animal rights advocacy. A vegan lifestyle is free from animal use in food, dress, entertainment, health care and any other purpose.

Veganism doesn’t require a PHD in nutrition and philosophy. Veganism is easy, with a wide range of animal free products to chose from.

As well as taking no part in nonhuman animal exploitation and slavery, veganism also has the added benefits of being healthy


and environmentally friendly.

AFAR and ALiberation members regularly have info tables on veganism and Animal Rights in Dublin city centre during the week and week ends. If you want to help, please contact AFAR or ALiberation. An info table is also held every saturday from 3pm to 5.30 outside Barnardos Furriers, beside Molly Mallone statue, on the fur trade and veganism.

    Johnny Cash Tribute, review

    Posted in Events by ALib on the July 19th, 2009

    Good night, Johnny Cash

    The Johnny Cash Tribute night in the Button Factory last Thursday went very well. A good turnout helped the launch of the Irish Vegan Society.

    Different styles of music bands played different Johnny Cash songs. In the intervals Johnny himself was played on the big screen.

    The Irish Vegan Society sends their thanks to all those who attended and also those who participated in the auction of an oil painting of Johnny Cash, by artist Peter Reece (see picture). The proceeds of which will go to a worthwhile charity.

    And they also send on a special thanks to the organizer, who knows himself who is he, the artist and the bands who helped make the night a success.


    make the night a success. (The Folsom Five, The Bionic Rats, Bastard sons of Boris Karloff, Delphine and Them, Primitevo, The Pavement Kings, Ben Prevo)
