'Evil Dead' resurrected

Meatless

Activists strive to
reduce national
meat consumption
By CARLINA DUAN
DailyArts Writer
On April 8, a group of stu-
dent activists stood at the corner
of South University, passing out
samples of local vegetarian food,
citing facts on the meat industry
of the country and advocating
for a campus-wide change in the
form of Meatless Mondays. The
student group, part of an Organi-
zational Studies activism class at
the University, is part of a larger
movement of nationwide organiz-
ers attempting to reduce the meat
consumption in schools in order
to promote healthy, sustainable
and environmentally aware stu-
dent populations.
Meatless Mondays, a national
nonprofit initiative, attempts to
reduce national meat consump-
tion every Monday. In dining halls
across U.S. campuses, meat-based
meals are replaced with "healthy,
environmentally friendly meat-
free alternatives," according to
the national Meatless Mondays
website. The program, currently
enforced by over 140 colleges
and almost 100 K-12 school dis-
tricts across the country, has yet
to reach the University campus.
If established at the University,
the plan would involve reducing
meat-based meals every Monday
intwo dininghalls: EastQuad and
North Quad, for the 2013-2014
school year.
LSA Sophomore Alex Winnick,
one of the students involved in
Meatless Mondays, described the
movement.
"We understand that students
want to eat meat, and we're not
forcing vegetarianism on anyone.
What we are asking people is to
