Let's have a discussion about vegan feminism!
VegeXmas at Kultuuritehdas Korjaamo (Helsinki, Finland), 21 — 22 December, 2019.
Welcome to say “Hello”, and ask questions about veganism!
“People are aware of more things than ever before, so they want a tattoo with a message on their body. Both for themselves and also to show their viewpoints to the others.”
“Every person has a key to change the world. I believe spreading the knowledge about animal rights is one thing that can make a big influence, and I think we are heading to more cruelty-free world all the time. If and when we are aware of these things, we can also demand improvements to be written in our laws. For example, many countries have banned fur farming lately. We just have to fight against the system.”
"We welcome everyone from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. So c’mon everybody, Cry Baby on the 2nd of June!"
Welcome to join the Tallinn Vegan Fair 2018!
“For me being active doesn’t necessarily mean torching slaughterhouses or liberating animals, even though these methods can be absolutely appropriate. The main form of activism we engage in as a collective is education, through books, blog entries, messages on stickers, patches and T-shirts. We financially support projects that have a more direct and militant approach (e.g. the occupiers of the Hambacher Forest in Germany) and write about their actions because in our opinion different forms of activism have to go hand in hand if we want to have an impact.
As a long-time activist, whom I once met at the Animal Rights Gathering, put it: “You are not the movement, you are part of the movement.” I would like to add: “Take care of others and fight for their rights, but also take care of yourself.””
“As a vegan seeing how the movement and community has grown over the past 5 years has been so inspiring. I love hearing from friends that want my advice to go vegan because they saw a documentary or heard about how much the environment is affected or they love animals too much. Helping people transition and just being me without really doing anything but leading by example has been the most effective thing I think.
As an entrepreneur, creating a community of badass women boss babes that collaborate and support each other has been so rewarding. Cultivating and creating relationships with other business owners is a must. We all can relate!”
“I used to be very engaged in animal rights and veganism. At that time I never felt like I was doing enough and to be honest was an angry person. Some people can live that life and do amazing things for the cause. For others like myself I need to prioritise my own personal wellbeing before I can be proactive. I still do what I can, when I can, but spend time and money on myself too. I acknowledge I could do more, and will strive to while still enjoying existence.”
