About the event

The Yes On IP3 Campaign will be hosting a screening of The Animal People on Saturday March 18th from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM at 5th Avenue Cinema in Downtown Portland. This event is free to attend, with the option to donate to our campaign to help get IP3 on the ballot in 2024. During the month of March, all donations will be matched by Direct Action Everywhere up to $10,000. Direct Action Everywhere is an international grassroots network of animal rights activists founded in 2013 in the San Francisco Bay Area. DxE uses disruptive protests and non-violent direct action tactics, such as open rescue of animals from factory farms.

Catering from Más Veggies Vegan Taqueria as well as vegan popcorn will also be available for purchase at the event. A $15 food ticket will include 2 tacos, red rice, ranchero beans, hacienda salad (romaine w/ arugula, cabbage, roasted corn, tomato, avocado & Catalina dressing), tortilla chips, and salsa. Popcorn can be purchased separately.

Fifteen years in the making, this feature documentary—Executive Produced by Joaquin Phoenix—follows the journey of six young Americans who find themselves targeted as terrorists by the US government for their involvement in a controversial protest campaign. Seeing the future of social movement organizing, the activists used the then fledgling internet to dramatically magnify their impact as they systematically knocked out the pillars of financial support that kept the company in business. But when letter writing and protests began to mushroom into dead-of-night vandalism and worse by unknown activists, this corporation and the government formed an alliance to destroy the group. The FBI began an unprecedented campaign of surveillance in preparation for prosecution, creating a model that would later be used against Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter. Congress, under corporate influence, rewrote laws and bent the definition of incitement in order to accomplish the prosecution of these six, potentially weakening free speech rights for all Americans. Featuring expansive interviews with the activists spanning over a decade, rare archival footage - including never-before-seen FBI undercover surveillance tapes, wiretaps and government documents, The Animal People is a chilling portrait of what happens when activism rattles the institutions of power.
