The human mind is remarkable for its ability to see the world in bits and pieces, each part disconnected from the rest, like an expansive vista viewed through the narrow slits of a picket fence.   ~  Professor Tom Regan   Professor Tom Regan and his wife, Nancy have never been your...
A series of large vegan billboards are unveiled today at various sites in Glasgow with the goal of promoting veganism as a “justice for all” philosophy.     The unveiling features special guest Pig Freud, a pink fluffy guitar-playing pig and animal rights campaigner, who is...

In this Blogpost I want to share my opinion on why some people have a negative perception of vegans. Some people regard the vegan lifestyle as similar to a cult or religion. I myself regarded it as such 12 years ago when my wife went from veggie to vegan. She was very passionate about her decision and...
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...
What's the most important thing the vegan movement can do? Get more active (and ethical) vegans, right? However, vegans are constantly being encouraged to support vegetarian and now reducetarian campaigns.   This session that I delivered at VegfestUK Bristol 2016 argues that the...
No-one in the human rights movement would feel compelled to say that they are a "rights-based human rights advocate." That would sound absurd. However, anyone wanting to make clear that the philosophy of animal rights is important needs to use a title like "rights-based animal...

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...
Bristolians travelling by bus are treated to a hardhitting bus poster educating the public to go vegan, live vegan, stay vegan and teach vegan as a justice-for-all philosophy that includes non-human animals as well as humans.     At the centre of these posters is a mother cow with her calf,...
