MayDay Books and Boneshaker Books both in Minneapolis, Minnesota are now carrying copies of “Love and Liberation: An Animal Liberation Front Story” that Sarat Colling and Anthony Nocella with the Institute for Critical Animal Studies (ICAS) wrote recently. Love and Liberation, published by independent social justice press Piraeus Books, is a short fiction book about a common romantic couple in Houston, Texas that join the nonviolent radical underground Animal Liberation Front, identified by the FBI as a top domestic terrorist threat in the United States. The book is an easy fun read great for book clubs, environmental fiction college courses, social justice and peace studies courses, and as a wonderful gift. Dr. Melanie Joy, author of Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows, writes, “‘Love and Liberation’ is a gripping tale of courage and compassion; it at once entertains and educates, inspires and informs. This short story manages to address a multitude of issues, all within a powerfully written narrative.”
ICAS’s new intern Nick Silcox held an ICAS-sponsored event in conjunction with the Animal Advocacy Coalition, a group of which he is both President and founder. The event included a discussion of ICAS’s mission along with a screening of Bold Native, which won ICAS’s 2011 Media of the Year Award. After the movie, attendees talked about the implications of the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) and how it applies to themes within the film.
