Tim Barford from VegfestUK presents his second in a series of short talks on effective vegan strategy. This brief talk looks at the animal movement and some of the naturally occurring divisions within.   Tim’s position is effectively that we’re better off understanding and...
There has been plenty of discussion recently about the word ‘’vegan’’ and what it means….and whether it should be replaced with other words, or altered to include animal consumption in some form or other….….. but ‘’vegan’’ is way...
In the lead up to the pro-intersectionality conference scheduled for VegfestUK London in October 2016, ARZone is presenting a special series of brief interviews addressing these and other questions.

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...
I had a wonderful time on the Main Street Vegan podcast (http://mainstreetvegan.net) with Victoria Moran. She asked excellent questions about veganism (what veganism is and isn't!), "abolitionist" veganism, why The Advocacy of Veganism Society (TAVS) (http://www.tavs.org) removed...

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...
Firstly, I would like to ask about the main motivation behind setting up the group?   The main motivation for starting the group was to provide a platform to explore examples of effective vegan activism.  Within the contemporary ‘animal movement’ we have noticed a general lack of...
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...

Much is made of the unique, ground-breaking, elements of The Abolitionist Approach to Animal Rights. However, its major characteristics, abolitionism, sentience, and others are “borrowed” from Tom Regan and Peter Singer.   The Abolitionist Approach to Animal Rights is essentially a...
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...
