Oppression is something that many beings face, regardless of race, color, gender, sexual orientation or species. Why is it that animals are so often left out of radical liberation struggles? Join Mya Mayhem and Tim Rusmisel as they facilitate a discussion about how anarchist, feminist, environmental and other struggles are intertwined and how we can move towards uniting in the fight for total liberation.

Mya Mayhem and Tim Rusmisel are passionate vegan straightedge anarach@-feminist activists who have been dedicated to total liberation struggles for over a decade. Campaigns they have recently been a part of include the Open the Cages Tour and the Black Pawprint Collective. Their next project is a move to Costa Rica to work with the Rainsong Wildlife Sanctuary on wildlife rescue/rehabilitation, sea turtle conservation, forest preservation and community solidarity building. This event is a fundraiser to help the animals of Rainsong.
