To New Beginnings, a Satya Farewell

satya 142 - jun07

The SATYA FINAL Issue is Now Available!

See highlights at http://www.satyamag.com

Satya’s 142nd and final issue, To New Beginnings, a Satya Farewell, is dedicated to everyone who has ever stood up in the face of injustice-whether it be handing out a leaflet, staring down a tank or choosing a meal of compassion. Brimming with activist a-ha! moments, while paying homage to unsung heroes, this issue is a celebration of 13 years of Satya.

Meet Malalai Joya, a 27 year-old Afghan women’s rights activist. Listen to the stories of former child soldier Ishmael Beah and his new mother Laura Simms. And you won’t forget the formidable Rebecca Lolosoli, the matriarch of an all-female village in Kenya.

In a rare and poignant interview, the late Dame Gretchen Wyler reflects about animal advocacy and her life on Broadway. And don’t miss Satya’s exclusive interview with “Pete” the Undercover Investigator who shares his experiences from inside the worst animal facilities in the world. Plus an in-depth feature on Primarily Primates Inc. in Texas!

All this and much more!

At 108 pages, this is Satya’s largest issue to date. Our staff has worked diligently to create a final issue that will leave you both informed and inspired. While Satya is coming to an end, the struggle for a more just world continues. Here’s to new beginnings! Enjoy.

Satya - April-May 2007

Satya’s penultimate issue Tides of Extinction dives deep to explore the fate of our oceans. From ecological collapse due to overfishing to the plasticization of our oceans, this issue is sure to be eye opening.

Captain Paul Watson shares his tales on the latest Sea Shepherd expedition in the Southern Ocean, while Captain Charles Moore explains the phenomenon of the garbage patch in the Pacific. Greenpeace’s Toni Vernelli gives a snapshot of the perils sea critters face, while Christine Morrissey looks closer into the world of industrial aquaculture. Sure Nemo’s cute, but Monica Engebretson shows the dark side of the marine aquarium trade. And for one dollar a year, Peter Wallerstein rescues whales, elephant seals and other critters harmed off of California’s coast.

Plus, where to get the best vegan sushi and how to make vegan goldfish crackers!

Celebrate 13 years of Satya

For 13 years Satya Magazine has been fueled by conviction, acting as a tool for change, empowering those committed to the less fortunate, animals and the environment. We have been dedicated to helping all beings and causes by encouraging every action possible, even in the face of adversity and despair. Therefore, we feel it is fitting that the final issue of Satya be dedicated to everyone who has ever stood up in the face of injustice–whether handing out a leaflet, staring down a military tank or choosing a meal of compassion. We invite you to send in essays reflecting on the central tenets of Satya. Essays about your own life-altering moments; who or what has changed your life, or what changes you have brought about through activism. We hope this issue will explore the troubles and joys, trials and triumphs, dilemmas and discoveries that keep our activism going. After 13 years Satya is ending, but the struggle for a more just and compassionate world continues. Help us make this last issue of Satya really special!

AETA News Roundup

Wednesday, December 13th, 2006

Given the disheartening lack of coverage of the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) in the mainstream media, I thought a roundup of recent news coverage might be helpful. (Of course, there’s always Green Is the New Red for breaking updates!) Though AETA never should have passed through the House OR the Senate, the good news seems to be that opposition is growing.

Prior to the House vote, the Institute for Humanist Studies included an anti-AETA article in their newsletter, Humanist Network News. It’s a great piece, and the fact that it doesn’t come from the “animal terrorist” sector makes it that much more impressive.

Here’s a brief excerpt:

We strongly encourage all attendees to read both issues before this discussion. Come ready to share your thoughts, ask questions, debate and participate.

The September issue of Satya Killing Us Softly? takes a closer look at the growing interest in “humane,” “organic” and “free-range” meat, dairy and eggs and what that means for the animals, animal activism and meat consumption.

What does it mean when body parts of dead animals are emblazoned with some of the words most precious to the animal rights movement? Humane. Compassion. Free.

The debate kicks off with “Compassion for Sale? Doublethink Meets Doublefeel as Happy Meat Comes of Age” by James LaVeck and heats up with “The Longest Journey Begins With a Single Step: Promoting Animal Rights by Promoting Reform” by Peter Singer and Bruce Friedrich. And interesting things just keep happening from there.

Vegans aren’t funny. They’re all fanatics. They don’t have sex. And their soy ice cream sucks. These are just a few of the misconceptions people have. And in short, they’re wrong.

Satya’s August issue Myth-Busters! Breaking Vegan Stereotypes presents a humorous, yet serious, look at activists busting all kinds of myths. Michelle Thew debunks the “Not Tested on Animals” label. Shannon Keith and Daniel McGowan show us that all activists are not terrorists, punk rocker Ian MacKaye reminds us not all vegans are fanatics, John Phillips proves politics and animal issues can be friends, and bodybuilder Kenneth Williams flexes his vegan muscle. And if you think pit bulls are monsters, writer and dog rescuer Ken Foster will prove you wrong. Check out our pull-out guide to DC’s vegan eats by Erica Meier, too. All this and more.
