animal rights, and human rights

Marissa Herrera loves animals so much that she believes that their collective purpose here on earth is to teach and guide us humans.  Originally from Central Mexico, Marissa has dreamed of returning, for over a decade, to establish an animal sanctuary where abandoned, displaced, or abused animals can be healed.  She also wants to create a space where humans can reconnect with their animal cousins, and the earth.  In the second half, Alison Acker shares some of the information she’s gathered while working with the Committee to End Homelessness.  This isn’t a group that works on behalf of the poor, this is a grassroots group that includes the poor as a central and integral component to their organizing.  Music from Jason Collett and the Dandy Warhols.

(update re: HRV meeting — “The action planned for Tuesday Nov 30 at City Hall has been postponed. We want to ensure that the Victoria Police Board hear our outrage, concerns and demands very clearly, and we were not able to ensure this would happen on Tuesday. Please rest assured that we will have more information about a new opportunity to get our message to the Police Board very soon. Stay tuned, and please join us this coming Monday Nov 29 at 7pm at 857 Caledonia for our monthly general meeting!”)
