In the fifth of this series, Dr. Roger Yates of the Vegan Information Project, continues with his account of some of the vegan social movement pioneers. Here is an account of the contribution of Kathleen Jannaway towards the vegan cause. The present over-industrialised system degrades people to machine...
In the fourth of the “And If You Know Your History...” blog series, Dr. Roger Yates of the Vegan Information Project, takes a look at some of the women pioneers of the vegan movement: Elsie (Sally) Shrigley, Dorothy Watson, Fay Henderson, and Eva Batt.   In the patriarchal...
Part 3 of ‘And if you know your history...’ In the third of this series, Dr. Roger Yates of the Vegan Information Project, turns his attention to Leslie Cross, who would have a profound effect on the vegan movement and, with Arthur Ling, the development of plant milks. He was certainly...
Part 2 of ‘And if you know your history...’ In the second of a series of essays, vegan since 1979 and former animal rights prisoner, Dr. Roger Yates, looks at how veganism as a social movement emerged and developed with the focus on accounts of the individual pioneers of the vegan...
Part 1 of ‘And if you know your history...’ In this series of essays, Dr. Roger Yates of the Dublin-based Vegan Information Project looks at how veganism as a social movement emerged and developed with the focus on accounts of the individual pioneers of the vegan movement. In an interview in...
The very first Vegan Information Project (VIP) blog entry was written in 2013 under the title “Mould Breaker.” This title was chosen to highlight the fact that the VIP is all about breaking free of the usual limitations and constraints that are often self-imposed on local grassroots campaign...
I need hardly add for all the animal advocates out there who are resistant to the idea of intersectionality, and don’t want to see capitalism as being part of our problem, or at least not the first item of our agenda – I mean, my challenge to that is that there isn’t a “first...
Vegan Education on the Go & the Vegan Information Project have at the start of September passed a milestone of 200 HOURS of no-nonsense vegan education direct to the public in 2016. Continuing VEGO’s work which began in January 2015, these joint events represents a huge commitment to public...
Vegans face a formidable, tenacious, and multi-faceted enemy, which bears the initials, “C.S.” No, not Christopher Sebastian, cheeky, but Cultural Speciesism. Jim Mason’s concept of “rituals of dominionism” is a useful tool by which to explore cultural speciesism and the...
xavier finix – inspired by the ideas of political theorist, Herbert Marcuse.   The great refusal is an act of profound, creative, uncompromising rebellion. It is the subversion of reality as it is imposed on us by authority. Capitalism forces a contradiction between spoken values and lived...
Have You Heard The News? The Vegan Information Project (VIP), in association with Vegan Education on the Go (VEGO) have negotiated a return to Temple Bar Square in the heart of Dublin - 5 hours, every Thursday.   Along with the VEGO/VIP tables on Saturdays [see video diaries in the playlist below or ...
Philosopher David Degrazia suggests that negating early socialised lessons may take a certain independence of mind. Sociology tells that any development of such independence of thinking is subject to social control and mediation, and is highly conditioned by socially-constructed understandings on any given ...
I said right at the beginning of my rights talk at VegFestUK Bristol that, of the four talks I gave over the weekend, the one on animal rights was going to be the most impossible to do. In the end, I decided that the 25 minutes would be best spent “getting a feel of the room” in the sense of...
I tend to say – and this is common of many long-time vegans such as Ronnie Lee, Kim Stallwood, Lynne Yates, Butterflies Katz, Bernie Wright, and Will Tuttle – that being vegan is considerably easier now than it was in the late 1970s and early 1980s when all these poor, sickly,...
Those who use and abuse other animals cannot countenance the idea of a rights-based position on the use of other animals. However, they claim to fully understand, support, and are strictly committed to the principles of the ideology of animal welfarism which essentially suggests that the non-cruel...
