What is a Terrorist?

What is a Terrorist?

The term "Terrorist" likely stirs your emotions, and makes you think of a certain type of person, maybe a religion, but does it make you think of animal rights? Probably not, unless you foolishly google Peta, and think very much inside the box, the word "terrorist" doesn't often relate to the animal rights movement. Freedom and terrorist are not often two words used in the same sentence, but for some, that freedom they are fighting for makes them a terrorist. 

On January 10th at 7pm Bold Native will be showing at The Screening Room at 3131 Sheridan Drive in Amherst. Tickets will be $5, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Farm Sanctuary and Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. Following the film will be a skype call with writer/director Denis Henry Hennelley.
