This past week at Friendly and Pragmatic Vegans and Vegetarians, we promoted Think Kind’s Be Kind To Animals Week where all Australian primary and secondary schools and students are invited to carry out a project on the topic of sentience.
We’re stoked with our group’s description [Description: Welcome to our FRIENDLY group for non dogmatic vegans and vegetarians 🙂 Please join in if you are looking for a place where you can ask questions about veganism, speciesism, animal rights without being yelled at…
We do not welcome pseudo-science.
Once in, please familiarise yourself with the pinned post with the group’s rules.
**We are a Shame-free zone**
Our mission is kindness: http://veganstrategist.org/2016/05/19/our-mission-is-kindness/] as FPVV welcomes critical thinking and does not welcome a one-approach-fits-all, my-way-or-the-highway attitude. Social media being what it is, we get the occasional upset member who doesn’t seem to get that we’re not your usual “vegan group”. It’s all good – FPVV is well established and everyone is welcome to express their perspective.
FPVV members also looked at how to best reply to a family member who shares pseudo-scientific articles against veganism and at the impact of animal agriculture on climate change.
We discussed a critic of a meme by Moby about being an activist 1st and before everything else and members were invited to look at Melanie Joy’s work. Also, what’s the best documentary we can recommend?
That’s all for now! Enjoy yourself, take care and see you in the group!
I am thinking of making this a monthly thing rather than a weekly thing. Thoughts?
