World Vegan Day 2009

Report

We had a very busy and successful day here in Victoria, BC, with three separate events organized by the local chapter of Friends of Animals to celebrate and promote World Vegan Day!

First up at 1pm was our vegan feed-out, volunteers baked delicious vegan cookies and cake, and we invited passers-by on a busy downtown street wishing people a Happy World Vegan Day, and to sample our treats, demonstrating that you can 'have your cake and eat it too', when it comes to eating good food, and not having to hurt any animals in the process as well. We were out for over 2hrs, and distributed numerous copies of FoA's Vegan Starter Guide, as well as the local newsletter we produce, the Victoria Vegan.

At 6pm we hosted a screening of Peaceable Kingdom at a local café, and 20 people turned out to view this moving documentary. Afterwards, we held a short discussion on the ideas of Donald Watson and The Vegan Society, and the empowering affect they hold, and the positive impact each of us can make.

Finally, a smaller group of us continued on to the Lotus Pond, a Buddhist vegan restaurant, and enjoyed delicious food and wonderful company to conclude World Vegan Day!

Below are a few pics from the feed-out:
