The First Annual Philadelphia Vegan Congress
by David Lambon Sunday, Apr. 04, 2004 at 1:04 PM

A Philadelphia forum on how to fight factory farms.

The First Annual Philadelphia Vegan Congress

With the discovery of Madcow in the US, and the rapid decline of our natural resources, there has never been a better time to take a step up in the fight against factory farms.

The meat industry consumes half of the water human consume and depletes our soil while it pollutes our air. In the process, millions of animal suffer from intense confinement, painful injuries and a slow death.

Any victory against factory farms is a victory for the human race as well. As consumption of meat declines, the food supply increases and the risk of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy and Avian Flu decreases.

Join Hugs for Puppies as we assemble some of the finest minds in the animal rights movement to analyze the social problem of factory farms. Activist from mutiple issues, disciplines, and philosophies share their thoughts on how to deal with the growing unrest concerning our nation's food supply.

1906 S. Rittenhouse Square
Philadelphia, PA
May 8th from 9:30 AM - 7 pm

Speakers include Heidi Prescott, Dr. Michael Gregor, Kevin Jonas, Paul Shapiro, & Howard Lyman
