Tim Barford on BBC Radio Scotland discussing veganism in a religious and moral context

Tim Barford on BBC Radio Scotland discussing veganism in a religious and moral context

2015-11-29 
| by Editor

Vegfest Scotland manager Tim Barford spoke eloquently earlier on BBC Radio Scotland on Sunday Morning Nov 29th about some of the moral areas involving veganism, including a brief mention of some of the issues surrounding global food production and the ethics of this area in conjunction with dairy farming and cattle fodder. Tim talked a bit about why he went vegan in 1984, and the origins of veganism, mentioning Donald Watson and the rejection of the systematic violence against some of our most vulnerable companions on earth.

 

Tim is one of the UK’s leading spokespeople on veganism and is known for his calm, measured, informed but passionate approach, with a justice and rights perspective always at the forefront of his advocacy.

 

 

Tim comes in at around 1:51:00 in a show that has gone out across Scotland, in advance of the first-ever Vegfest Scotland on Dec 5th 6th at the prestigious SECC (Hall 3).

You can listen to the show here:
