08:37 pm - BARC events
This community seems to be kind of dead, but just in case it isn't...

The Baltimore Animal Rights Coalition has been busy with the Wegmans Cruelty campaign (www.WegmansCruelty.com), demanding that Wegmans Food Markets stop using battery cages on its egg farm in Wolcott, NY, and raising awareness of the cruelty of factory farming in the process. At our demonstration last Sunday, a photographer from the Towson Times and a reporter from The Jeffersonian documented our efforts.

Please help the Wegmans hens out by making a call to Wegmans' corporate headquarters in Rochester, NY at 1-800-WEGMANS (1-800-934-6267) to ask why there are protesters outside their Hunt Valley store every weekend, and why Wegmans won't make a welfare improvement that their competitors Whole Foods, Wild Oats and Trader Joe's have already made. Thank You!

Baltimore Animal Rights Coalition

Send an e-mail (computers will be set up at the party) asking Wegmans Food Markets to stop keeping hens in battery cages on its egg farm in upstate New York, and send an email to all your friends asking them to do the same. This event is being combined with the January Baltimore animal rights meet-up, which is a monthly gathering for food, fun and informal conversation about animal rights (See http://animalrights.meetup.com/20/events/4805015/) so bring some vegan food if you can. Cassette, a band from Florida, will be there, as will local musician Savory James.
