Listen up for the PSA that is playing on UO's campus radio, 88.1 FM that was made by fellow vegan and SETA member "Tim in the Morning" Tim Sutton - player of the lounge tunes - in support of educating students where they can get cage-free eggs on campus and why they should buy them.

Peaceable Kingdom Documentary Thurs. April 17th 7PM

FILM AND DISCUSSION on animal farming as part of SETA Vegan Challenge Week, Featuring the award-winning documentary "Peaceable Kingdom." Thurs. April 17th. 7PM in UO’s Willamette 100 (on campus on 13th). DOCUMENTARY DESCRIPTION: Experience the compelling behind-the-scenes stories of farmed animals, former farmers, and animal rescuers, struggling against an out of control agricultural system that hardens us humans and treats our fellow animals like pieces of meat. Despite the challenges, Peaceable Kingdom offers us an inspirational and poignant vision of a more peaceful world that is well within our reach. *** SETA leaders will facilitate a Q&A discussion about animal farming and veganism after the film (film is 70 minutes) *** NOTE: The documentary has sad parts and some slightly graphic scenes, but they are short, so you won't be using your hankies for long, as the documentary mostly shows people telling their stories about farming and farmed animals, so it is very watchable, touching, and hopeful.

Be a Hero. Take SETA's Vegan Challenge! (April 14th - 18th, 2008)

As part of UO's Earthweek, SETA is asking you to be a hero and take the Vegan Challenge. Spend a week eating for life! By enjoying a plant-based diet, you will: ** Save animal lives (both domestic and wild). ** Greatly reduce your carbon footprint. ** Boycott factory farming and the exploitation of other animals. ** Use less land, oil, and water. Cause less pollution. ** Eat plenty of healthy, good stuff. ### SETA's Vegan Challenge week asks people to adopt a vegan diet for at least a week (any consecutive seven days you choose), enjoying plant-based foods instead of buying any animal's flesh, cow's milk, or chicken's eggs. This is a great chance to prove to yourself that you can live a healthy life without sacrificing anybody else's life or freedom.### INFO TABLE AT EMU: SETA-volunteers are available around lunchtime (11 - 1:30) Mon. April 14th to Fri. the 18th to answer your questions about eating vegan. Sign up to take the vegan challenge, and we¡¦ll give you a button, a zine, a packet of info, and a snack to get you started. ***The vegan challenge is being hosted during UO's Earthweek to emphasize the increased sustainability of eating lower on the food chain. To be environmentally responsible and greatly lower your carbon footprint, eat plant-based foods, particularly organic and local.***

How to help keep Holy Cow Cafe

A MESSAGE FROM KATHEE LAVINE AT HOLY COW -- Dear Friends, Colleagues, and interested suppliers: HOLY COW! We have been at the UO for over 10 years now, and our first 10 year lease is up in June of this year. The EMU administration at the University of Oregon is choosing not to renew our lease. They are choosing instead to replace us with Laughing Planet, a chain store from Portland. They feel the inclusion of meat by LP gives them a more mainstream appeal. They are not concerned that the Holy Cow Café is a stand alone business that will cease to exist. The process is frozen for now, while we sort through the legal processes, seeing if there even is a protest process in place. They seem to have written up the rules on this one, changing them from the last time we negotiated with them. This is our only window of opportunity to have the court of public opinion weigh in and maybe tip the scales on the decision. Here’s what you can do if you’d like to help: Letters (or, of course, emails) and Phone Calls MOST IMPORTANT this week: * President of University, Dave Frohnmayer, pres@uoregon.edu * Robin Holmes, Vice President of Student Affairs, savp@uoregon.edu * Eugene Weekly, editor@eugeneweekly.com * “The Decider”, John Costello, Food Services Director, jcost@uoregon.edu and 541-346-3719 * ASUO President, Emily McLain, asuopres@uoregon.edu * Director of EMU, Dusty Miller, dusty@uoregon.edu * You can let Laughing Planet know how you feel either here in Eugene (541) 868-0668, or in Portland (503) 546 2972.

Save Holy Cow Cafe

Read the Emerald or talk to Kathee at Holy Cow to find out about what you can do to support Holy Cow Cafe, as the EMU says they plan to replace it with Laughing Planet next year. We certainly don't want to lose a vegetarian haven and local icon like Holy Cow Cafe. Laughing Planet is veg friendly but still serves flesh. WHAT TO DO: Go to Holy Cow and sign any petitions they have. Plus, write a letter to the Emerald at letters@dailyemerald.com. Plus write a letter to the EMU Food Services Director John Costello at jcost@uoregon.edu. BTW: Next SETA meeting will likely be Feb. 5th at 6:30PM at the Survival Center in the EMU.
