Pig Freud Autumn 2015 Tour

Pig Freud Autumn 2015 Tour

2015-09-04 
| by Editor | Posted in Vlog

Pink fluffy guitar-playing cartoon pig Pig Freud today announced his first tour of the UK, with 6 dates during the autumn of 2015. Pig Freud will be opening a number of vegan events in the UK and Ireland, in support of grassroots regional vegan education projects in the UK, Ireland and New Zealand.

 

 

Pig Freud’s dates include:

 

The lucky recipients of the charity fundraiser are:

 

 

Pig Freud will be raising money for grassroots regional vegan education projects and to help support the drive towards going vegan and ending exploitation of animals across the globe. Obviously being a pink fluffy pig, this is a cause close to Pig Freud’s heart and he hopes his appearances will help stimulate people to consider going vegan, and to encourage vegans to become more active and more focused on peaceful vegan education.

 

 

 

‘’Pig Freud loves all animals, be they pigs, other animals or humans, and he would love to try and help people go vegan and stop eating and using animals,’’ explained Pig Freud’s manager Tim Barford from VegfestUK and Yaoh, the sponsors of the tour, “and he is using his considerable talents to try and help achieve this. Pig Freud is visually challenged and obviously his trotters are also slightly problematical when it comes to fret work, but he loves playing the electric guitar and is surprisingly good at it. He is really looking forward to his first ever UK tour and especially honoured to be opening all the vegan shows and helping raise money for these 5 amazing grassroots regional vegan education projects. And in doing so, Pig Freud is especially keen to help encourage vegan activists to focus on peaceful vegan education as their chosen form of activism if they truly want to help end the exploitation of animals.”

 

 

Pig Freud will perform a 15 minute solo at each event, with a social media campaign to support the performances and tens of thousands of flyers to be distributed at each event asking people to consider going vegan and to support their local grassroots vegan education projects (or start their own), and there is a JustGiving crowdfunder which will be available in October 2015 for his growing legion of global fans to donate to the 5 chosen projects if they wish.

Here’s a video, courtesy of VegfestUK TV, of the recent gig just outside Grillstock by Pig Freud’s cousin Pig Floyd, who has sadly passed away recently. Pig Floyd stood up for all animals’ plight and performed a short gig whilst his human colleagues distributed ‘go vegan’ flyers:

 

 

Pig Freud also has his own website www.pigfreud.co.uk which goes live from October 2015.

The 5 organisations selected by Pig Freud to be the recipients of his fundraising activities are:

 

Veggies Catering (Nottingham UK)

‘Veggies has been promoting vegan catering and supporting campaigns for human and animal rights, environmental protection and social justice since 1984. Partly due to their work, veganism is now widely understood.’

London Vegan Actions  (London UK)

A group of vegans who believe that being vegan is not enough; the animals need people to be proactive and campaign vigorously on their behalf to bring about change.   LVA  coordinate regular vegan outreach events as well as organise creative protests in and around London.

The Vegan Intersectionality Project (Dublin, Ireland)

Vegan Athletes for Peace (Widnes UK)

Pig Freud would also like to extend a huge amount of gratitude towards Carolyn Bailey and Animal Rights Zone, where he has been studying vegan ethos recently, and advises all activists to engage on ARZ to understand a rights perspective and the vegan ethos more thoroughly.
