In this series of blogs, we will be interviewing all our speakers at the upcoming Pro-Intersectional Vegan Conference at VegfestUK London, asking each of them a number of questions surrounding their work and other related topics.   Today we have Joe Brydon, activist with the Animal Alliance, which...
Social movement theory suggests that modern social movements are messy entities, and the closer one looks, the messier they seem to be. Early social movement theorists looked at campaigning mobilisations from afar, and in the abstract. However, in the late 1960s, sociologists and other social scientists...
What follows is a report from one individual involved in a campaign of sorts against the bullying of Gary Francione. It is an individual account, not a group report.   Law professor Gary Francione has, for many years, applied a harsh and totally unrealistic standard to groups and individuals in the...
In this talk, delivered at VegfestUK Brighton 2016, Tim Barford examines the Abolitionist Approach to Animal Rights, and concludes that the ideology is of much value - but the approach is both immoral in principle and unworkable in practice.   Tim has a high regard for Gary L. Francione, and...
As some of you may have heard, Prof. Gary won’t be attending future events at VegfestUK. Many of you will be heartily sick of this ‘discussion’. We are too. So this is our final statement regarding these matters.   The reason he isn’t coming is simple. On his Facebook...
Gary Francione will no longer be appearing at VegfestUK events.   Whilst we value his ideology, we cannot support his treatment of vegan activists in public any longer, especially in the UK right now.   We have a big respect and admiration for what is essentially a movement based on...
In case you’ve missed these videos recorded from VegfestUK London 2015, here’s a compilation for you to enjoy:   Dr. Nina Bailey – Essential Fats and Vegan Diets   Dr. Tushar Mehta – Vegan is the Answer. What’s the Question?   Sandra...
Having taken up reading again after a 15 year gap, here is the 2nd in a series of book reviews around the issues of veganism. As mentioned in my first review, these reflections are an attempt to help stimulate interest in these issues, and especially to encourage people to take an interest in and get...
Looking for inspirations to go vegan? Seeking some potentially life-altering documentaries to get you on your way to veganism? Come down to the Cinema at VegfestUK Brighton on both February 27th 28th 2016 at the Brighton Centre, and you’ll be spoilt for choice!   The Cinema...
In case you’ve missed the following key speeches and performances from our first ever show in Scotland, here’s a compilation:   Dr. Douglas Graham – Many conditions with one common consideration   Matt Ruscigno RD – How Vegan Athletes are Defying...
‘It’s a lifeline to the survival of the whole planet, and a must read book for every vegan activist across the globe’ Tim Barford, founder of the VegfestUK events, reviews the new book by Professors Gary L Francione & Anna E. Charlton     ‘Having been away for a...
Big thanks to Prof. Gary L. Francione for speaking to our audience at Vegfest Scotland via Skype on Sunday December 6th 2015.   Pioneer of the Abolitionist Approach to Animal Rights, and prime mover in the abolitionist vegan movement, Prof. Francione spoke on the subject...
VegfestUK London 2015 on Sunday October 11th has already entered the history books as the first time that the Abolitionist Approach enjoys a proper platform at a national UK vegan event.   VegfestUK has taken this brave, controversial and in some opinion fool-hardy move as we believe that the...
This is Prof. Gary L. Francione's 2nd  talk at VegfestUK London 2015, as a sequel to his first talk "Introduction to the Abolitionist Approach to Animal Rights”:     This presentation will focus more in depth on why WELFARE-REFORM CAMPAIGNS and SINGLE-ISSUE...
Finally, the wait is over!!! The FULL VIDEO filmed from the first talk by Prof. Gary L. Francione at VegfestUK London on the Introduction to the ABOLITIONIST APPROACH to Animal Rights is now available to view right here! Enjoy! (Gary’s talk begins from 5:00 in)     Gary made his...
