If you drink the milk from a mother cow, you need to learn about the dark secret of the dairy industry and then decide if you still choose to be part of it.

Dylan Budge is yet another shining example of sheer vegan health and fitness. Dylan has joined what’s now becoming a long list of athletes who have joined the Vgang!

My first steps into a plant-based diet in April 2018 were not your typical ones. It was a dark time; darker than many could imagine. Having separated from my wife only two days after my mother died in December 2017, my world had been ripped apart. I was unable to function as a normal human being. An attempt at some sort of reconciliation in the New Year eventually resulted in my moving out for good at the end of March 2018. Feeling completely destroyed and isolated can sometimes result in the odd spell of random motivation to do something completely different. You can either curl Read More
In 2009 in Piedmont Italy, Fedy set up “La Piccola Fattoria degli Animali” (The Little Animal Farm) https://www.facebook.com/PigWhisperer/
This would be a place devoted to pigs saved from slaughterhouses and factory farms, but which would also give hospitality to dogs and cats that have been ill-treated or abandoned.
We caught up with Fedy and asked her some questions.
Can you tell us where the idea came from and how you managed to bring it about?
Let me start by telling you a little story that will surprise you. Last year, three days before my birthday, my mother told me that I was supposed to be born on November 11. Everybody was Read More
A statement I hear quite often is “The Save Movement doesn’t actually save animals”.
Having been closely involved with the movement from it’s UK birth in 2016, I decided to share my thoughts on the movement and what came out of my involvement with them.

Aware of the suffering caused by the destruction of life, I am committed to cultivating the insight of Read More
The Rise of Veganism
Up until just a few years ago Veganism was believed to belong to a niche group of people who were viewed by non-vegans as tree-huggers, thin, weak-bodied hippies who lived on a diet of “rabbit food”. However, that is no longer the case as veganism is growing massively around the world and has catapulted into the mainstream in the past 18 months. Bodybuilders and athletes such as Patrik Baboumian, Barny du Plessis, Josie du Plessis, Fiona Oakes, Tim Shieff, Torre Read More
The absolutely brilliant 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood The Handmaids Tale has been adapted by Hulu into a critically acclaimed and multiple award winning TV series of the same title.
The Handmaids Tale depicts human females being enslaved and kept like prisoners – just as farm animals really are! Just like dairy cows, these human fertile women are also raped and exploited for their reproductive systems.
I was so eager to view The Handmaids Tale that I ordered series 1 on DVD from HMV to arrive with me on UK release day back in March 2017 – not something I would normally do.
Atwood drew on the Book of Genesis Chapter Read More
Capitalism, as we know it, is dying. We are coming to an end of certain presumptions and thought patterns that we have so far taken as normality and acceptable – industrial agriculture is the obvious example.
I am aware that many object to the severity of my language; but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or to speak, or write, with moderation. No! Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the ravisher; tell Read More
