This Vegan Stands With Anita Kranjc

“Best Video You Will Ever See” Facebook Post:

HOWEVER, now she is facing up to 6 months in prison and a $5,000 fine for GIVING WATER to these exhausted pigs. Her trial starts this Wednesday, August 24th. Let’s help Anita show …

This Vegan’s Experience at the 24 Hour Toronto Pig Save Vigil

This Vegan’s Experience at the 24 Hour Toronto Pig Save Vigil

When it was over (for me at least), I opened the door of the car where my husband was waiting and settled heavily onto the passenger seat. I sat there for a few moments, numb with the stink of death and desperation assaulting my nostrils, my emotions and my brain. I could literally smell the blood of all the doomed prisoners in those death for hire trucks. The fact that I was sunburned because I  had forgotten my hat and …

NARD: A requiem for mothers and their babies.

NARD: A requiem for  mothers and their babies.

A fair number of requests and invitations manage to make their way onto my Facebook News Feed and Personal Page. I am happy about this because they help me to keep abreast of what is current and happening in the world of veganism and AR activism. The downside is that I simply cannot respond to and/or attend them all. So when my good friend and fellow AR activist, Karen Messier asked me if I would like to accompany …

There’ll never be a better chance to change your mind
And if you want this world to see a better day

Will you ride the great white bird into heaven
And though you want to last forever
You know you never will
(You know you never will)
And the goodbye makes the journey harder still.__Cat Stevens

 

 

We vegans all do our part. At the very least, we are setting …

KnockOut: Slave of the Calèche (Carriage) Industry in Old Montréal

KnockOut: Slave of the Calèche (Carriage) Industry in Old Montréal

The only being who was not a willing participant in the Anti-Calèche (Carriage) demonstration this past Sunday in Vieux Montreal, is KnockOut, the horse. He is a  handsome, large fellow, weighing in at 1800 pounds. Judging from his golden coat and whitish mane, I would hazard a guess that KnockOut is a Palomino.

He arrived about half an hour after the protestors who, equipped with their signs, determination and fervor, began to congregate at Place Vauquelin, situated in the heart of …
