The North Cornwall Vegan Fayre has a great line-up of talks this year!!
Bring it all back to basics.
Animals feel pain and can suffer. We should grant them all a right to life, like we already do for cats, dog and swans. Carnism is getting in the way.
We have no biological need to eat their dead decaying bodies, so what's stopping you becoming vegan?
Take yourself out of the system of mutilation, death, separating families, artificial insemination, gas chambers and suffering.
It's really simple.
The team from 100vegan and Bevegantoday have put together some amazing and helpful links to help people find the many home meal delivery companies with Vegan options. So if you have a busy life, a family member who needs quick meals or you just fancy giving it a go, these are for you.

Can I milk that dog? Seems like a weird question right. But in a world where people forcibly impregnate female animals then steal their milk, for milk we don't biologically need. Why would anyone milk any animal if we don't need too?
I have created free this page of buttons to help answer quickly and easily a lot of the common excuses and questions that get asked by non-vegans.
Now is a time of year where people reflect, question, recharge and change things! Why not look at our plates??
The food we eat has impact.
/// There's gas chambers for the majority of poultry in the UK
/// There is family's being separated, especially for cow's milk
/// Zoonotic diseases and antibiotic resistance
/// Artificial insemination and carnism
/// Documentaries like Seaspiracy, Dominion, Dairy Is Scary, The
End Of Meat, Cowspiracy, Speciesism, Carnage and loads more.
A month of Veganuary would be a great impact and the site has lots of support and recipes.
As ever if you have any questions just give me a shout. (Vivera kebab meat is a banging option, so many tasty vegan ice creams, and the options are endless!!)
If your just going to reduce that is a good starting point and stepping stone.
I recently got invited to speak at the Big Green Eco Weekend Festival in Plymouth. The event was organised by Plymouth Unitarian Church, they are a really friendly and positive group. :).
There were loads of really inspiring, local, innovative stalls, great speakers and more. There was a large speaking space, nice sized festival hall, a café/kitchen with lots of vegan options.
All of the slides are available here to download.
My friend Betty is running this awesome night down in Camborne. we volunteered together at the Plymouth Earthcafe for many years. It was always tasty food, interesting chats and a lot of great nights!
If you can go check it out, or keep an eye out for the future dates!
I have been discussing about our treatment of non-human animals with the public and people I know for many years. And during these chats I got intrigued as to how the majority of animals are kept and treated.
Firstly the majority of the animals that end up on humans plates are killed. And for profit reasons they are mostly killed young, I've never met a farmer who would raise a cow for 20 years, feeding them, giving, them water, hay for sleeping and eating. What I have found is that they kill them for meat at around 1-2.5 years. So you can see straight away if they let them live a full life, that'll be around 18 more years of inputs. Chickens for meat are killed around 6 weeks, they can live upto 8 years, so around 8 years of feed, water, bedding and other bits. I don't believe there are any farmers who let them live their full lives, if they do exist, I don't see how they can make money.
I'm not doing this to bash animal farmers, because animal farmers are just people who have been conditioned a certain way and are used to things being the same, maybe traditions, or a dislike to change. The great news is that there is the Grow Green scheme to help farmers grow plants instead of working in a system that kills animals. - www.vegansociety.com/take-action/campaigns/grow-green
But the harsh reality is that there a lot of majorities that are within the animal farming industry if done to dogs, there would be literal massive riots. For example the majority of land animals in the UK are sent into gas chambers. Nope, that wasn't a type-o, animals are put into gas chambers for food we biologically don't need. We don't need to eat dogs either, but if the majority of dogs in the UK were being sent to death in a gas chamber then eaten, how would you react?
Dairy is seen as this harmless process, but remember that the cow had to be pregnant first. One process is 'artificial insemination'. A scientific phrase for tugging off a bull, taking their semen. Putting an arm into a cows bum, then with the other arm injecting the bulls semen into her vagina. Remember we are not baby cows so no need to drink cows milk, and around 65% of the world is lactose intolerant. Now re-read how cows can be impregnated, for something we don't need. It's cruel and senseless. It doesn't stop there though. A calf will be produced and usually taken within a couple of days, so that the milk can be taken. Separating families, for what exactly, a taste pleasure. Cruel and senseless.
The good news if your not vegan yet, this is your wake up call. Either you carry or supporting these processes financially, or you go vegan? It's a simple thing, just eat fruits and vegetables.

The chats I had with people in the past made me realise that people don't know what is really happening and what they're funding. Now we can let them know the truth, the majority of humans on the planet are not baby cows, and are lactose intolerant. The majority of land animals killed in the UK are chickens, and also the majority of these are gassed to death, The majority of land animals in the UK are lowered into gas chambers.
At the bottom of this page will be all of the other majority facts!
Part of this project was to educate people and hopefully lead to attitude and lifestyle changes, basically get them to go vegan, so they remove themselves from this cruel and senseless system. Remember we don't do these things to dogs, all we have to do is extend that same treatment to all animals. They all bleed, feel pain, suffer, have families, but some people don't realise they are all the same in the areas that truly matter. People need to realise they can change, then do it. And eating animals is needless. - www.bertyjustice.co.uk/bertys-blog/thursday-post-healthy-vegan-diets-pdf-its-arrived
This project used imagery and videos from several amazing groups, so thank you to them for all their amazing work. Keep going!

Veganism can help animals and people in so many ways. This group are helping those in need of food with vegan aid. I have given to many charities, given presents or Christmas presents as donation to many charities in the past, and this one is the next one I will be donating too. Maybe consider sending a donation towards this positive cause.
Part of their website statement,
We are a registered charity that in 2019 took over responsibility for some of the projects previously supported by The Living Without Cruelty Trust. Our mission is to fund specific projects that demonstrate vegan compassion in action. These include school feeding programmes in poorer countries, support for refugees and homeless people in the UK and, currently under development, an educational project to encourage greater respect and care for wildlife.

I have a project on the way that I feel everyone should see. It still baffles me that we have put animals into gas chambers for food we don't need, it is insane and barbaric.
Just think if we replaced the chickens and pigs that are forced into gas chambers, with puppies!! Mad right!
But the great news is if people stop funding it then the industry will collapse!!
The video below is of chickens on their way to a gas chamber, these baby animals were sent down a motor in plastic boxes. Then gassed. Its mental.
The talk below by Gary Yourofsky is one of the best ever done by anyone!! Go check it out for yourself. His website adaptt.org/ is a real awsome resource.
My name is Berty Justice and I'm going to add things here. If you like life from another angle, you'll love this!
