It's a good question ... Why go vegan? - Well, there are a lot of reasons but in this video I quickly break down the ethics and have a look at what the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has to say about a vegan diet - The crux is animals feel pain and they can definitely suffer. Animal Ag is an industry that is inherently cruel and kills 65 billion land animals and 1.5 trillion land animals annually. - The only reason this happens is because us as consumers are demanding these products. As we stop our consumption so too will the industries stop their killing. If there is no market for meat/dairy/eggs then they won't breed and kill all of these innocent animals. - Be the change you want to see.

Maple syrup (honey) chicken, rice, noodles and more mock chicken! (Oh and the samosa's are gone😂) - I wouldn't usually eat this naughty but I've had a massive two days at work and haven't had time to prep! 😇 - Feels amazing to have a feast! Of cruelty free food after doing 21 hours of physical work in the last 2 days ! 😁😁 - Keep your cheats relatively healthy and make them sporadic, so they are more special! ❤ #crueltyfree#vegan#health#love#compassion#vegansofig#lifestyle#beauty#inspire#plantbased#cleaneating#activism#vegano#vegans#plants#healthylifestyle#cheatmeal#feast

As the #MeToo campaign gains momentum, Palestinian-American Yasmeen Mjalli hopes Palestinian society will confront the taboo subject of sexual harassment. Last year, 21-year-old Yasmeen moved to the West Bank after her college graduation and started selling T-shirts, hoodies and denim jackets like this one with the slogan "Not Your Habibti (darling)," that she hopes will fend off catcallers in the West Bank city of Ramallah. Yasmeen: “What I am doing is to start a conversation that people are really afraid to have."

During EULAR #PARE2018 conference @reumanet launched their part of Don't Delay #ConnectToday campaign at the local parliament, showcasing an exhibition consisting sculptures representing hands of people affected by arthritis. We have also visited @europeanparliament and had The European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility, Marianne Thyssen, opening the conference. Her words: 'National governments must understand that there are no costs in fighting #RMDs - only investments in society' resonate with us since then. This message does not have a borders or limits to EU, people everywhere should have a chance to fulfill themselves in the workplace and be able to lead happy life in our society. #ankylosingspondylitis #axialspondyloarthritis  #invisibleillness #chronicillness #chronicpain #backpain #autoinflammatory #autoimmune #rheumatoidarthritis #inflammatoryarthritis #arthritis #activism #volunteer #fundraising #socialgood #nonprofit #dosomething #charity #instagood

THIS .... is exactly why I post things that some people don’t want to see! Each vegan saves approximately 200 animal lives per year. If I reach only ONE person, that is TWO HUNDRED lives saved! And this is why, the ones who unfollow/unfriend or get outright mad at me .... 👋🏽 I am ok with that. I will never be silent so that someone can remain comfortably ignorant. #shelithepetnanny #iloveanimals #eggs #animalliberation #animalcruelty #crueltyfree #veganforlife #babychicks #activism

Yesterday's vegan activism right in front of the KFC outlet at Park Street, Calcutta. The protest was loud, and effective! The customers (inside) who were eating chicken wings and other products derived from the bodies of dead chickens, literally felt a sense of guilt. It's no brainer that the event hit their conscience. The B.R.A.V.E. (Bengal Rebels' Association of Vegan Enthusiasts) activists made it clear about their prominent existence in the city. With an ever increasing number of vegans (in Calcutta, India) the #veganindiamovement is gaining ground and attention of the mainstream media. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #india #veganpola #kfc #veganoutreach #outreach #campaign #street #activism #veganactivism #activists #anarchy #protest #rebel #fights #awareness #veganforanimals #fastfood #plantbased #plantpower #chicken #meatismurder #chickenwings #calcutta #parkstreet #kolkata #westbengal #vegansofig

"I’m seeing you after quite a while, I have known you since you were a tiny little baby now all grown up into a beautiful women. Actually I have been cutting your fathers hair for past 35 years and I can recall how you used to call him to check up on him. You know every father needs a loving daughter.” “Oh thank you so much, pleasure meeting you. How are you keeping?” “Just recovering from 4 month paralysis, I can hardly use my left hand and I feel so helpless. Sometimes we keep running behind success and money, until such point where we realize we have not been living the life that’s intended for us, specially when our system cannot take it anymore and breaks down. Its then we start looking for meaning of life and regret the times we could have spent with loved once. ” #people #experience

These school children hardly have shoes for school. They walk miles to school through paddy fields in the sun. Getting their feet all muddy even before they get to school have been a big draw back for these children to be educated, most of them fall sick when it rains as they walk through the path which have been puddled. #volunteer #students
