Vegan Week in Dublin, organised by AFAR

Posted in Events by ALib on the November 7th, 2009

Vegan Week,
Sat 31st Oct 09

The 4th annual World GO VEGAN Week took place this year from October 25 through 31.

To celebrate vegan week, AFAR held a vegan information table and handed out leaflets to members of the public on North Earl street, in Dublin city centre. AFAR were joined by members of ALiberation and other vegan activists.
The table attracted many people who were curious about veganism.

Veganism is the starting point for animal rights advocacy. A vegan lifestyle is free from animal use in food, dress, entertainment, health care and any other purpose.

Veganism doesn’t require a PHD in nutrition and philosophy. Veganism is easy, with a wide range of animal free products to chose from.

As well as taking no part in nonhuman animal exploitation and slavery, veganism also has the added benefits of being healthy


and environmentally friendly.

AFAR and ALiberation members regularly have info tables on veganism and Animal Rights in Dublin city centre during the week and week ends. If you want to help, please contact AFAR or ALiberation. An info table is also held every saturday from 3pm to 5.30 outside Barnardos Furriers, beside Molly Mallone statue, on the fur trade and veganism.
