defendants.

The cost is a flat $25 per person for a delicious three course vegan meal,
with two seatings promptly at 6pm or 8:30pm, Thursday April 2nd. Half the
evening's proceeds will go to the AETA defendants.

The AETA defendants are six animal liberation activists that were recently
victims of a governmental sweep, much like the SHAC7, and being charged
under the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) for doing merely nothing
but printing flyers and doing home demonstrations against vivisectors.
This means they are each facing a minimum of 5 years in prison and tens of
thousands in fines. Please support our community members and activists for
animals!

Please make reservations by calling Portobello Vegan Trattoria.
Also contact with questions or allergy concerns.
