David Brower Center
2150 Allston Way, Berkeley, CA
Join United Poultry Concerns for our 8th annual Conscious Eating Conference in Berkeley, California. Our conference features bold, informative speakers from across the country to share their expertise on issues affecting farmed animals.
This year we will have a stimulating debate on the issue of cell-based (also called in-vitro, clean, cultured) meat. Some animal advocacy organizations, as well as agribusiness heavy hitters like Tyson foods, are investing in the research, viability, and marketability of cell-based meats. But as the technology becomes reality, others in the animal rights community have raised red flags. The debate over cell-based meat and whether we, as animal activists, should be putting our time and resources into this innovation is gaining traction. We feel that animal advocates need to know more about this emerging issue and are hosting a debate with leading experts on the subject.

03/14/2019 What Is Humane Meat?: Screening of "Eating Animals" 

Thursday, Mar. 14, 6:00 PM-9:00 PM

Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists Hall
1924 Cedar (@Bonita), Berkeley www.bfuu.org

Join Slow Food East Bay and Transition Berkeley to delve into the prickly questions involved in raising livestock for food. The truth is - people eat meat. Instead of arguing that it shouldnt be so, lets talk about how to do it better. How we serve those needs and desires determines the welfare of many animals, the health of the planet and ourselves. Is there such a thing as humane meat? Can a small group of dedicated farmers change the agricultural industry? How can we encourage people to eat less, but better quality, meat? Start at 6pm with a potluck demonstrating Slow Food values of Good Clean and Fair, then watch Eating Animals, a documentary by Jonathan Safran Foer and Natalie Portman. After, hear from & ask questions of a panel made up of both omnivorous and plant-based guests, all involved in the good food movement from the production to the policy side.

Sponsored by Slow Food East Bay,Transition Berkeley and BFUU Social Justice Committee.

In 2018, energy was the worst-performing sector on the SP500 stock index, losing almost 20 percent of its value. CalPERS has not revealed its losses, but the numbers dont lie. By failing to divest from fossil fuels, the fund clearly left money on the table. We're heading to the March 18 Investment Committee meeting (a review of ESG factors) to send a strong message. Join us! Read more.
Fossil Free California asks our huge state pension funds, CalPERS and CalSTRS, to reallocate investments to help loosen fossil fuels' death grip on our investments, our politicians, and our planet. We have big plans for 2019, and we need your help

NICK ESTES with ROXANNE DUNBAR ORTIZ: Our History Is the Future: Standing Rock vs the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Long Tradition of Indigenous Resistance.
Hillside Club, 2286 Cedar Street, Berkeley
In 2016, a small protest encampment at the Standing Rock reservation in North Dakota, initially established to block construction of the Dakota Access oil pipeline, grew to be the largest Indigenous protest movement in the twenty-first century, attracting tens of thousands of Indigenous and non-Native allies from around the world. Its slogan - "Mni Wiconi" - Water is Life - was about more than just a pipeline. Water protectors knew this battle for Native sovereignty had already been fought many times before, and that even after the encampment was gone their anti-colonial struggle would continue. In Our History is the Future, Nick Estes traces traditions of Indigenous resistance from the days of the Missouri River trading forts through the Indian Wars, the Pick-Sloan Dams, the American Indian Movement and the campaign for Indigenous Rights at the United Nations. While a historian by trade, Estes also draws on personal observations from the encampments and from his own growing up as a citizen of Oceti Sakowin (the Nation of the Seven Council Fires), making this book a work of authentic history, a personal story, and a stirring manifesto for native liberation.
Nick Estes, a citizen of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, is an Assistant Professor of American Studies at the University of New Mexico, and a co-founder of The Red Nation, an organization dedicated to native liberation.

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
1001 Fairgrounds Drive, Vallejo, California 94589
On Saturday, May 11th, 2019, protests and educational events will be held all over the world in front of marine parks and aquariums. If the park is exploiting marine mammals for entertainment and profit then we want people out front creating noise and awareness. The only way to see an end to this abuse of dolphins is to get the general public to stop buying tickets. We need your voice, your posters, and your dedication to seeing an end to the marine mammal captivity industry. Information and education is vital - our signs tell the stories and we will have flyers to hand out.
* Time: 11AM - 1PM
*This is a PEACEFUL protest!
