VEGAN EDUCATION DAY COMES TO GREATER MANCHESTER
 

Star date: 16th April 2017

HARD HITTING VEGAN CAMPAIGN HITS THE STREETS

22nd April is Vegan Education Day and to promote it, Go Vegan World, the world's largest and long running vegan campaign, is hitting the area with billboard and bus adverts, digital screen messages, virtual reality exhibitions and talks... "Animal rights is also a human rights issue" says campaign director Sandra Higgins.

A hard-hitting Go Vegan World campaign will be slapping Greater Manchester streets ahead of Vegan Education Day on 22nd April, with three hundred buses carrying the messages, along with taxi and billboard advertising, 42 posters at Piccadilly Station, two hundred bathroom ads, sixty jet washed pavement impressions, and huge digital screen adverts at the Printworks and the Arndale Centre in Manchester.

On Vegan Education Day itself, there will be vegan food sampling and virtual reality exhibitions in the Go Vegan World gazebo on Market Street, while volunteers will be on hand to provide information on how veganism is a fair and ethical way of living.

Go Vegan World is the world's largest and long running vegan campaign, and its messages to Greater Manchester are to make people think, with slogans like 'Dairy Takes Babies from their Mothers', 'Humane Milk is a Myth: Don't Buy It' and 'Their Right to Life: Your Right to Health'...

Sandra Higgins, Go Vegan World campaign director and founder of the Eden Farmed Animal Sanctuary in Ireland, says: "There is substantial research that demonstrates that other animals share the human capacity to be consciously aware and to suffer. Breeding them for our use and taking their lives is unjust.

"Even when the best of welfare standards are adhered to, they face rights violations and control by humans throughout their lives and death at a slaughterhouse at a very young age" she adds "It is impossible to regulate something that is inherently unjust. Not one of us would be willing to swap places with the animals we use."

The campaign also argues that there is a growing body of research that shows how a switch to a vegan lifestyle would benefit the environment and human health, and help alleviate world hunger...
 
"Most Western world children have fatty streaks in their arteries by ten years of age" Sandra Higgins notes "This is the first sign of atherosclerosis, the leading cause of death in the Western world. A whole foods 100% plant diet prevents and reverses our No 1 killer of humans and of other animals. Animal rights is also a human rights issue...

"Most people are pleasantly surprised to find that it is easy and enjoyable to be vegan, especially when motivated by our deepest values of justice and fairness" she concludes.

On Monday 8th May 2:30pm-5:30pm there's going to be a talk about veganism titled Awakening Compassion at Manchester University Students Union, Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9PR.

Speakers: Professor Richard Twine on the Environment and Veganism
Laura Elizabeth Tomlinson on Health and Veganism
Sandra Higgins on Veganism and Ethics
Followed by a Q and A
The evening will also have videos, information stalls and free vegan food and drink

SALFORD COUNCIL SET TO BORROW 25MILLION TO MAKE TOWER BLOCKS FIRE SAFE

25MILLION FOR NINE PENDLETON BLOCKS AS PUBLIC MEETING CALLED ON FIRE SAFETY

Salford City Council is set to borrow 25million in order to sort its nine Pendleton high rises, after they failed consecutive Government fire safety tests. Who ultimately pays for the work, a Council report states, is "likely to be the subject of dispute", although it believes that Pendleton Together is liable.

Meanwhile a public meeting for residents will take place next Tuesday, 22nd August at Salford Arts Theatre, with speakers from the Justice4Grenfell Campaign, Salford City UNISON and the Fire Brigades Union.

UNISON ACCUSES SALFORD COUNCIL OF LYING TO JUSTIFY SHUTTING DISABLED KIDS HOME

'INACCURACIES' AND 'LIES' IN COUNCIL ATTEMPT TO SHUT THE GRANGE AS STRIKE BALLOT LOOMS

Next week, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, will make a decision on whether or not to shut The Grange, Salford's only residential care home for disabled children.

The Council report recommending the closure has been slated in new counter reports from both the families of children at The Grange and Salford UNISON, which accuses the Council of 'inaccuracies', including over unfilled places... "The so-called lack of demand for The Grange is a lie to justify a cut" it states. The report adds that UNISON members "are willing to consider industrial action in defence of their jobs".
