Animal Liberation Front founder Ronnie Lee joins VegfestUK London People's Vegan Activists Summit

Animal Liberation Front founder Ronnie Lee joins VegfestUK London People's Vegan Activists Summit

We’re very glad to welcome renowned animal rights activist Ronnie Lee, well-known for his work with the Animal Liberation Front, at VegfestUK London People’s Vegan Activists Summit this October.

 

 

Ronnie Lee founded the Animal Liberation Front in 1976 and has been an activist in the truest sense ever since the 70’s. One of the first members of a national UK activists group to go vegan (Ronnie was also active with the Hunt Sabs), Ronnie has now become a member of the Green Party and regularly campaigns for the Greens as his principle chosen form of activism and animal advocacy.

Here is a video of Ronnie’s speech at a Vegan Ireland movie event, about achieving animal liberation in a speciesist society:

 

Ronnie will present his own greenprint for Animal Liberation at the Summit. He’ll explain why we need a masterplan to free other animals from human tyranny, why this should include vegan education and political campaigning, and what form should those two types of action take. Read his blog post here also for more details on his greenprint.

Ronnie is a much loved and much admired grassroots activist and is very welcome at our event – in a way, representing the original UK animal activist and with an opinion that has been learnt the hard way. Well worth a listen, especially for any budding younger activists!

 

Ronnie will be joined at the Activists Summit by heavyweights such as Prof. Gary L. Francione, presenter and author Dr. Melanie Joy, activist and blogger Tobias Leenaert, presenter and author Victoria Moran, scholar Kim Stallwood, plus many others TBC very soon.

 

 

The talks, workshops and debates at the Activists Summit will be complemented by oceans of vegan food and shopping from 200 stalls and 14 caterers, alongside a Vegan Health Summit (Saturday), Talks, a LifeWell SuperHub, a Kids Area, Cookery Demos, a Living Raw Zone, a Teen VGN Zone, a Mature Zone, Comedy Hours & Music and more! 

 

Advance tickets go on sale from Tuesday July 21st at the event website right here.
