Help revise our Talking Turkey leaflet

I was engaged in a bit of an exchange with Gary Francione over the past couple of days, and he made a good point about our turkey leaflet – that it was exclusively focused on the treatment of turkeys. Personally, I think it should still deal with treatment in some fashion, but it would improve

Walkin’ and talkin’ for animals

Our Boycott Procter & Gamble event

Almost Earth Day

On Wednesday we started our week-long “Meat Free Earth Day” campaign. It’s a pretty low-key campaign this year. We started with a 1 hour launch event which went pretty well. The weather was great. This afternoon we were out doing some rush hour leafleting. We gave away all of our leaflets in just an hour!

There are protests happening in 17 22 cities across Canada (most on the 14th – the actual anti-fur day). 6 nude activists wearing big paper hearts were the centerpiece of the protest, with other activists holding signs or

Foie gras and the French

A couple of us went out on Monday and Tuesday to collect signatures for Liberation BC’s campaign to ban foie gras in Vancouver. It was cold but many people stopped to sign. One guy walked by and took a leaflet, then came back to hand me the leaflet. He said he was French, so there
