In the seventh of the blog series “And If You Know Your History...”, Dr. Roger Yates of the Vegan Information Project talks about the work of the late Prof. Tom Regan, philosopher and pioneer of rights-based animal rights.   This is a celebration of the life and work of Tom Regan, ...
2017 has seen some wonderful highs, some very sad lows and a lot in between. In this short 20-min festive vlog, Tim Barford from VegfestUK pays tribute to 12 inspirational vegan activists in 2017 before touching on some of the more problematical areas of current vegan campaigning. “Without wishing...
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...
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...

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...
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...
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...
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 this presentation, given at VegfestUK London 2015, social psychologist Dr. Melanie Joy explains how CARNISM - the invisible belief system that conditions people to eat animals - shapes the mentality of meat eaters. Melanie then explains how vegans can apply their understanding of carnism to...
