Brand-new!

We have some news for you this week:

Benefit-Button ยง278a
We are all $278a! The trial against the 10 animal rights activists in Austria will start in March. You can show your solidarity with our new Benefit-Button. All the profits will be given to the donation account for legal assistance. Animal rights groups can order the button for a wholsale-price in quantities from 10 pieces on to use them for their solidarity actions.You can find all the dates for their court cases and further information here.

Further there will be a Global Action Day Against Repression on March 3, 2010 because of the beginning of the lawsuit against the criminalized austrian animal rights activists to increase the public pressure on the austrian public authorities and to show solidarity with the prosecuted activists. There are going to be a lot of actions in front of austrian embassies, consulates and other institutions.

ROC-Myspace with a brand new design
Our Myspace-Page has been receiving a major update regarding design and like we already said in our blog, we will feed it with new information almost daily. Add us as a friend and let’s get started!

Twitter
Slowly but surely web2.0 has been arrived at the Roots-HQ. That’s what you have waited for a long time: You can now find us on Twitter. So, if you always wanna know what is going on in our office just follow our Tweet.

Daily Shipping
We have new shipping times for parcels: They are gonna be picked up every day now – Monday through Friday. So, that means you will receive your order even faster!

A LONG DUE UPDATE.

Twitter LogoSo, its been a while since we posted something here, but the end of 2009 has proven to be a very busy one indeed. Marc and Michi were on the road with the documentary ‘EDGE’, which now has been screened in 7 countries already. So over the time we were away, everything else was kept pretty much basic in terms of new items or projects. But there have been a couple of noteworthy changes:

First of all we have new shipping times for parcels – those are now picked up 3 times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. That means we can ship your orders even faster ๐Ÿ™‚

Apart from that we’ll expand our web 2.0 presence a little – you can now find us on twitter and it’s our plan to add more updates to our facebook and myspace pages.

Our conversion to a co-op is almost done, but its a little bit of a neverending story. Why did we decide to become a co-op you might ask? Since we’re a collective, we wanted that to be reflected in our legal form, so even if we were equally organised before, we are now as well on paper and legally. Thats right, no gods, no masters ๐Ÿ˜‰

Over the holidays we’ll take things a little easier, but you can of course place your orders, and we’ll ship them around Dec 28th / 29th. For the new year we already have plenty of new plans and projects and products lined up so, expect to hear / read from us soon!

Happy Holidays and happy new year!
