Description: SMASH THE STATE, CRUSH THE CAGE, a strategic conference for the fortification of the Northeastern animal liberation movement, will be held at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts from Friday, November 9th until Sunday, November 11th.

The conference will feature talks by PETER YOUNG and Dr. JERRY VLASAK. Please visit our website,, for information on other speakers.

Conference organizers Hampshire Animal Liberation Advocacy (HALA!) are still soliciting facilitators for workshops, talks and skill shares.

Housing and as much food as we can scrounge will be provided for all attendees. All are welcome save representatives of the military, police and/or federal agencies. A talk on conference security standards will be our opening event.

Hampshire College would never permit a KKK convention on campus. This is no different.
