Some wonderful recent donors have enabled VIP to buy some new banners for our important weekly street outreach events, designed by local activist Steve Cooling.
These latest four banners share a theme: VEGANISM: Before you ask how, ask why! This is to underscore the ethical emphasis of the Vegan Information Project. When people have an ethical reason to do something, that something becomes much easier. Research shows that ethical vegans are the vegans who stay vegan.
There is nothing more important in our struggle against cultural speciesism but to increase the number of ethical vegans in society.
Many thanks to Tim Barford of VegfestUK who included the Vegan Information Project in a recent video (see below).
Tim talks fondly about two influential members of the animal advocacy movement, Andrew Tyler of Animal Aid, and Professor Tom Regan, the author of The Case for Animal Rights, who both sadly died in 2017.
Tim also talks about a number of “movement issues,” such as appropriation, and reducetarianism.
With great pleasure, the Vegan Information Project present our monthly video diary for September 2017.
These diaries show scenes from the VIP’s “Vegan Information Day” events which take place every Thursday in Temple Bar Square, Dublin (10am – 6pm, or 1 – 6pm in the very cold weather).
The Vegan Information Project is an all-volunteer group and, as always, many thanks go to the wonderful volunteers who turn out every week to talk to the public about the justice-for-all vision of vegan philosophy.
We were pleased to have had James Aspey as a guest at one of our September Vegan Information Days. James was in Ireland as a keynote speaker at Dublin Vegfest 2017.
James brought some Virtual Reality goggles with him and tried it out in our Temple Bar Square location in Dublin. Here’s two examples. Thanks to Declan Bowens of Vegan Education on the Go for the filming.
We are happy to share our 7th monthly video diary of 2017 covering the month of July. As you’ll see, we now have TWO WHITE GAZEBOS and this makes our Vegan Information Day events splendid! The original red canopy on our first gazebo (bought in 2013 for a really great knock-down price) was beginning to tear. We were tempted to get a “cool” black replacement but that wouldn’t be practical.
The white tops make things a lot brighter – and that will help in the darker months when we’ll be bringing out lights back into use.
The other gazebo is brand new since the one borrowed to us had to be returned. Luckily we were able to purchase this second one for half price, so both gazebos have turned out to be bargains!
