Die deutschen Leute wissen

Deutsche Leute zum Veganer werden!
Das ist sehr gut :)


The current winner in the race to make vegan food products? Germany.

This may come as a surprise to anyone who’s gone to a German bar and tried to order a meatless meal, only to end up gnawing sadly on a giant pretzel.
Germany produced 18 percent of the world’s new vegan creations in 2016 — more than any other country, CNN reports.

Vielen Dank Deutschland, Ich Liebe Sie!

Vegan biscotti and life gifts

Life gives you little surprises. I met Nancy 2 years ago at the vegan Thanksgiving potluck, she lives around the corner of my house. Many times I wondered when we would run into each other. A little background, I have been stressed, angry, sick, and disappointed the past couple of weeks (mostly at the world, you know? Politics, people eating animals 😡). But after talking to my dear friend Izabela, I had a switch of heart, kindness, spirituality, metaphysics, all the things that were really important to me in Mexico City started coming back to me... so what happens? I walk out my door and there is Nancy with one of her older pugs. I recognized the EG letters on her tee under her sweatshirt, the full message was VEGAN. So we talked and reconnected, I was on my way out but when I came back home, she left me a beautiful box with homemade baked vegan biscotti, I haven't had biscotti since I became a vegan. So life reminded me that I have a more positive view, which btw is more in my nature, gifts will be given 💓

Too much pain and suffering

56,000,000,000 Animals will die yearly for our pleasure since we don’t need to eat animals to survive & thrive.

Sudan starving while Americans are dying from being too fat

Sudan’s deadly FAMINE, while 80% of crops in the USA go to feed farmed animals for Americans eating chickens and burgers. Supporting the Animal Agriculture industry while others starve is a crime.

If you STOP eating animals, those crops can bake 2 loafs of bread DAILY for ALL the WORLD population, but we are SELFISH and criminals towards humans and animals alike. Eating Meat is destroying the planet and creating the worst inequality in our planet.

Being Vegan

Being a vegan is the best thing that has happened to me, there is an inner peace to it and I get to eat pizza, donuts, cake, bean burritos & burgers with fries & shakes! While wearing beautiful shoes, purses, and cosmetics that didn't hurt anybody else. Try it! It is much easier than what you think. #GoVegan #smile #care #love

Mercy for Animals Paid-Per-View

I miss blogging, too much Facebook and Twitter.
But today I make time to write about "PPV"
Paid-Per-Views are events where
we pay people $1 to watch a 4 min. video about animal agriculture
Most people have no idea all the suffering the animals
go through to make it to our "plates"
After the video, we talk to people and encourage them
to follow an animal-free vegan diet.
Most people want to go vegan or at least cut
meat consumption after the video.

The past 2 weekends I have volunteer with the
Mercy for Animals team at 2 Lunar Festivals
in San Diego, the Vietnamese and the Chinese festivals.

Here some photos:
Nancy Wheeler, our wonderful organizer talking to people at the Vietnamese Lunar Festival

Simon from Germany talking to people at the Vietnamese Lunar Festival

Great to see some live hens and chickens, not in plates!

Women's March in San Diego

I went to the Women's March in San Diego,
We had about 30,000 people: women, men, children
marching to protest how badly women were treated
in this past election, and to protest Donald Trump's
treatment of women.
Photos from San Diego's news paper UT.

I also find interesting that many don't know that
Veganism is a Feminist Issue...
Think about it:

"The entire animal industry is built on
the exploitation of the #female reproductive system."

Read this blog post:
"Oppression is oppression.
Violence is violence.
The species of the victim is irrelevant."

So we created posters accordingly:

Oppression

All Oppression Is Connected.
Human Rights are
Civil Rights are
Women's Rights are
Animal Rights.

Animals are entitled to the possession of their own lives and that their most basic interests — the need to avoid suffering — and should be afforded the same consideration as similar interests of human beings. Animals should NO longer be viewed as property or used as food, clothing, research subjects, entertainment, or beasts of burden. Evolve. Stop the Oppression. Be Fair, Be Vegan. Love and Respect for All Species on Earth.
