Tim Barford from VegfestUK advocates for justice for all animals on BBC Radio Bristol

Tim Barford from VegfestUK advocates for justice for all animals on BBC Radio Bristol

2016-01-15 
| by Editor

Tim Barford, manager of VegfestUK – organisers of Europe’s prime vegan festivals – was on BBC Radio Bristol today talking with Steve Yabsley about veganism as a philosophy of justice for animals, people and the planet.

 

 

Tim was in good form today as he combined the following points with ease and aplomb in groundbreaking fashion during the half hour interview:

  • veganism is the morally right thing to do for everyone
  • animals have a right to be freed from oppression based on sentience alone, not on any other cognitive characteristics
  • how easy and fun it is to be vegan these days

Tim looked also at other social justice movements including the abolition of slavery (which began in Bristol in 1787), and the rise of the suffragette movement 100 years ago.

 

Tim’s interview with Steve is here:

Of course, as VegfestUK Brighton is fast approaching, Tim invited everyone who was listening to this 8th year event down on the South Coast which showcases the best of the vegan philosophy.
