1. Activist Report

Leafleting at Christian Rock Fest at Six Flags over Georgia, Julie and DC write: We handed out a box and a half of the booklets at the Christian rock festival and they were very well received. We wore our T-shirts and people were friendly. We are excited about bringing the message of veganism to Christians and would like to participate in future events.  We have a half a box of booklets left and plan to hand them out next Sunday morning when people are leaving church. Please keep us informed of future events.


Leafleting at Women of Faith in Cleveland, Jen writes: Leafleting at the Women of Faith Conference went really well!  I passed out 2 boxes of CVA leaflets.

3. Purely Delicious Magazine – CVA Ad

The CVA has a beautiful ad in Purely Delicious, a very attractive magazine that encourages raw vegan eating.  It has lots of recipes and tips of eating raw in and out of the house.



4. Oregon Law Bans Use of Gestation Crates for Sows

While Arizona and Florida have passed similar laws by public referendums, on June 28 Oregon became the first state to pass such a law through representative government.  Farmers will have until 2013 to eliminate the 2 foot by 7 foot stalls that confine breeding sows during gestation.


In the U.S. Congress, Oregon Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-4) has introduced a similar bill to stop inhumane treatment of farm animals: H.R. 1726, the Farm Animal Stewardship Purchasing Act, which would require meat, dairy, and egg products purchased for federal programs to meet a basic set of animal welfare standards, including not confining breeding pigs in gestation crates.


5. HSUS Encourages Amazon.com Boycott

Rev. Deborah Baxter in Buffalo, NY writes: I thought you might be interested in this HSUS (Humane Society of the United States) campaign to stop Amazon.com's sales of illegal animal fighting materials.

Amazon sells both cockfighting magazines and bloody, graphic dog-fighting DVDs. The company is so determined to continue selling these materials that it filed a motion against The HSUS in federal court, essentially asking that federal and state laws to protect animals be gutted to accommodate Amazon's sales of animal fighting paraphernalia!

Please ask Amazon to remove these materials from its website. Here is a link for more information:
