In this series of blogs, we will be interviewing all our speakers at the upcoming Pro-Intersectional Vegan Conference at VegfestUK London (#PIVC2016), asking each of them a number of questions surrounding their work and other related topics.   Today we have Sarah K. Woodcock, founder and executive...
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...
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 ...
Big thanks to everyone who visited VegfestUK Bristol 2016, and also to those who completed our visitors survey for the event.   We have received altogether 424 responses (printed and online combined), and collated the data from both types of surveys. And the results are at the bottom.   A few ...
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...
The world’s first guitar playing pig Pig Freud was performing live on the Buskers Stage at the recent VegfestUK Bristol:     (below are shorter videos taken from his full performance)   Pig Freud was busy entertaining our audience as well as promoting veganism and...

The vast majority of human beings are brought up and effectively trained to be speciesists by a powerful social ideology that says we are the most important beings on the planet: an ideology that even denies that humans are animals. Humans do not celebrate being apes. How many people think that the term...
Lovely joyous interview with VegfestUK manager Tim Barford on the Cruising with Clayboy & Amy show on Ujima Radio, discussing a number of important topics on veganism:   the variety of vegan foods, from junk food to healthy foods the latest figures on the number of vegans in...
Close Down all Slaughterhouses Demo (London) Saturday June 11th 2016, 12:00 – 4:00pm, @ Leicester Square London   The time has come! It's time to claim loud and clear the abolition of slavery of all the animals, the abolition of the practices which cause them the biggest wrongs:...
At VegFestUK Bristol, I will be running a short 30-minute “workshop” entitled, “An Introduction to the Controversial Idea of Animal Rights.” Sunday May 22nd between 3:00 – 3:30 pm in the Activists Workshops area   So, what’s controversial about the idea ...
In issue 25 of Philosophy Now, Jane Forsey wonders what it is about human beings that makes us so special and important. “Can we,” she asks, “continue to rest easy in our claims to, or unspoken assumptions of, a privileged position over the rest of the natural world?” The suggestion ...
In a discussion about forms of social knowledge, sociologists David Lee and Howard Newby claim that both common sense knowledge and ideological beliefs suffer from certain limitations (which, they say, sociological knowledge can go some way to overcome). Lee and Newby elaborate on the point, suggesting...
  Hi Friends, I've recently created a vegan resource in podcast form How To Go Vegan which I hope is reasonably comprehensive. It's fairly informal and sometimes personal. It contains episodes and written material on what veganism is, how to become vegan, how to stay vegan, and how easy it ...
