Original post by Darren Cutrupi

Here is the audio of my interview on ABC Radio Canberra this morning if you missed it. Not sure how long it will be there for.

There will be a video coming in the next day or two thanks to the great Adrian Muscat. I will post that on the PlantHealthMan website PlantHealthMan.com and on facebook.

March to Close All Slaughterhouses – 11 March 2017

Original Post including photos

Thank you from the organisers of the very first March to Close All Slaughterhouses in Canberra, Vegan ACT and Animal Liberation ACT, Lara Drew & Michelle Isobel<3

We were blown away by the response from the Canberra vegan community with over 100 participants. Your compassion, creativity and commitment was a force to be reckoned with.
We just know many members of the public went home with their complacency challenged and new possibilities awoken, so thank you! And thank you to everyone whose support we had from home and afar.

Thank you to our speakers, local heroes for the animals: Carolyn Drew, Bede Carmody and Tara Ward.

Thank you to all the helpers on the day and in the lead up who made it happen, too many to name! You are all wonderful!

Thank you to all the wonderful people who took photos on the day: Reeni, Tara, Jyoti and more. And of course to Gareth who took the photos we share now (and who is always behind the scenes helping make things happen!).

We can’t wait to do it all again next year, and then we will look back reflect on all the leaps forward we have made as a community in that time.

So let’s do it – let’s push things forward, for the animals!

Let’s talk activism!

A message from Laila

It may seem scary and intimidating standing before the public raising awareness about the truth and reality of animal industries, but if you’re passionate about your values and where you stand as a proud member of our vegan community this may be just the right thing for you!
We all remember how nervous we were our first time participating in these experiences, but we gained confidence from the positive effects we are having on members of the public and by supporting each other when we’re out there on the streets together.
Many people have shown an interest in attending outreach and activism such as protests, 1000 eyes experiences and the cupcake challenges and we understand some people may hesitate to attend due to being anxious or uncertain about how it will go and if it ends up having much of an impact or not, but as you can see from the photos and feedback we post we reach a lot of people and many people decide to make changes or even go vegan on the spot after taking the time to listen.
This kind of activism isn’t for everyone, and that’s fine! We all have our own ways of planting seeds. But if you’re leaning towards giving it a go, be brave and join us. It feels truly amazing and rewarding to have discussions with people about the reality of animal agriculture and educate people on veganism.
Everyone is welcome to stop by any of the events for a chat and to see how things run.
Please get in touch with us through Vegan ACT or contact Laila directly via messenger if you have any questions or concerns
