With 28 events and activities happening this
months, we've got a diverse range, from casual
connecting with like-minded people and finding
somebunny to love, to the more serious that impact
the lives of individuals, both human and non-human.
Check 'em all out, and in particular the three
11 years ago, McDonald's, one of the largest
and most well-known corporations in the entire
world, sued two UK grassroots activists for libel
over a leaflet called "What's Wrong with
McDonald's?" Their trial was one of the
longest civil trials, ever. This month, for a
special one week engagement only, the recently
updated documentary McLibel is playing in San
Francisco. It's an incredible real-life story of how 2 ordinary citizens stood up and made
an extraordinary statement. Don't miss it!
Bay Area Vegetarians is a proud local sponsor
of this engagement, and will be in attendance
on opening nite, Friday, June 10th for a post-movie Q&A session. Please join
us for dinner beforehand.

Car & Driver Needed for SF Street
Using a body TV to screen the video "Meet
Your Meat", this stunning footage stops
people and gives them a first-hand glimpse into
factory farming. Lauren Farnsworth told us that
this footage was the catalyst to her father and
fiance's decision to stop eating meat and dairy. "You
have done for me what I could not do!" We
need your help to bring this footage to the streets.
Our BAVeg volunteers return to two large SF fairs - the Haight Street
Fair on June 12th and Pride on June 25th-26th.
We will be distributing information on vegetarianism
and factory farming, planting the seeds of compassion
and good health. Please support us by donating
your time -- we need your help to set-up as well
as staff the table for two days of Pride. If you like
to leaflet, or bring vegan food treats for the
volunteers, we've got opportunities for that,
too. Please contact Tammy if you can help. Financial support for Bay Area Vegetarians, literature and
outreach costs are always appreciated.
