5. HUMOR—Here are two morsels of raw foods comedy we couldn’t resist:
We saw this Robert Mankoff cartoon in The New Yorker and thought it was great! A man in a business suit stands beside a guy sitting at a desk. The standing man is looking at three picture frames on the desk, the type office workers use to display photos of family members. But these frames contain pictures of a bunch of grapes, two apples, and three bananas. The guy sitting at the desk looks up at the visitor and says: "I love fruit."
On Halloween, TV funnyman Craig Ferguson appeared on his talk show dressed as a banana. He said when he was a boy, his mother was always telling him he would turn into a banana if he kept eating so many of them. (If that’s the case, he must have eaten a lot of jokes, too!)
This November 23, for 24 hours, we remember that no one was born to shop, we make a small choice to participate by not participating. We call it Buy Nothing Day, and judging by the huge successes seen all across the globe last year - with thousands of activists and fed-up citizens taking part in dozens of countries - this year's festival of restraint could be the biggest yet.
If you've never taken part in Buy Nothing Day, or if you've taken part in the past but haven't really committed to doing it again, consider this: 2006 will go down as the year in which mainstream dialogue about global warming finally reached its critical mass. What better way to bring the Year of Global Warming to a close than to point people in the direction of real and effective alternatives to the unbridled consumption that has created this quagmire?
Right now, were putting together our web campaign headquarters for BND 2006. Email us at as your plans, posters and photos start to come together. We'll try to feature the best and brightest as this year's BND takes shape.
In the meantime, take a moment to check out our wrap-up of BND 2005, and see if anything there inspires you to act come this November 23 (November 25 outside North America):
I wanted to let you know about this awesome event I'm helping to spread the word on.
The upcoming Vegan Vacation gathering was inspired by the great folks from http://www.veganfitness.net who have yearly meet-ups. These meet-ups have generally happened over in Europe and so Robert Cheeke of http://www.veganbodybuilding.com decided to organize a gathering based in the united states.
This event will be taking place from August 3-9 in Portland, Oregon USA
The basic idea is to have a get-together of the Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness forum members to hang out and meet in person, but everyone is welcome! You dont even have to be Vegan or into bodybuilding & fitness - just come out for good times and to see what this is all about!
While the Vegan Vacation gathering is still in the planning stages, there will definitely be a variety of activities focused on fitness, great food, veganism & generally having fun! Most events will be free or low-cost. Organizers will provide as much free housing and food as possible. YOUR assistance and ideas are welcomed!
Originally, the Vegan Vacation location was going to be Los Angeles, California. For a variety of reasons, the gathering location has been switched to Portland, Oregon.
So Why Portland?
Here's just a sampling of what Portland has to offer:
- Portland is the #1 Vegan Friendly City in America - Portland is one of the most beautiful and clean cities in America - Portland is one of the fittest cities in America with all kinds of outdoor activities during the beautiful summer for athletes to take part in - Portland is only an hour from the Pacific Ocean so we can still "hang out on the beach" - Portland has more vegan and vegetarian restaurants per capita than pretty much anywhere - Portland actually has vegan soft serve ice cream that comes out of the machines (kinda like a Dairy Queen, but vegan) - There are many forum members in Portland and around the region so we are sure to have a nice turnout and lots of local tour guides - Portland has lots of other attractions such as being
located near Mt. Hood and Mt. Saint Helens, Seattle, Olympia, Eugene, Vancouver & Victoria plus all kinds of great wild nature, rivers and mountains. - Did I mention that we have Food Fight!, the ALL VEGAN 7-11 type convenience store?1?
Call for Weekend of Resistance Against the "Green Scare" June 9 - 11, 2006
by Jeff Free Luers
This June marks my 6th year in prison. From behind these walls I have strived to remain an active part of this struggle; from contributing to the dialogue and discussion of tactics, to furthering the debate on climate change in the public. Perhaps most importantly I am proof that prison cannot crush the spirit of resistance.
This year has seen an increase in state repression against activists and radicals alike. It is truly a scary time. We all know about the "Red Scare" - the government's attempt to justify repression by labeling dissidents "communists" back in the 1950's. Today we see their "Green Scare" attempt to crush resistance by labeling them "eco-terrorists."
For the last three years, June 11th has been celebrated as an international day of solidarity with me, Jeffrey Luers. I have been overjoyed with a sense of love & pride at the support I have received from around the world. My deepest and sincerest thanks go out to all of you.
Right now there are more than a dozen people sitting in American jails (or on strict bail release) accused of Earth/Animal Liberation Front actions. Six people were originally arrested. These arrests were based almost entirely on the testimony of one police informant, Jacob Ferguson. Bill Rodgers - accused of multiple arsons - took his own life in a jail cell. Unfortunately, several of those arrested are now cooperating with the state.
These defendants are facing ridiculous charges and a draconian amount of time.
This June, I ask you to show them the solidarity that you have shown me. I ask that foremost in your mind be the thought that the state is trying to break this struggle with repressive and intimidating arrests and sentences. I hope you understand that it's not just those of us in prison being punished with these sentences; they are designed to be examples to you, to frighten you into compliance. This June I'm asking you to demonstrate that you can't be intimidated. Celebrate your dissent, give it voice. Be loud. Be visible. If you have the ability, organize a reclaim the streets party or a critical mass.
If you are going to host a fundraiser or venue event, I ask that you donate all proceeds to the legal defense of those recently arrested who maintain integrity in the face of repression, whether they are innocent or guilty.
This June, show the world that the voice of truth will not be silenced by fear.
June 9 - 11, 2006, is a Weekend of Resistance Against the Green Scare. There is no central organizing body or group to check in with but the Jeff Luers Support Network can help by providing you with flyers, graphics, and merchandise such as videos, zines and stickers about Jeff and allies in the struggle. Begin planning your event now. Read more about the Green Scare defendants here. Plan an action that makes sense for your area: a demonstration, treesit, music festival, teach-in, stenciling campaign, rally, protests at an American consulate/embassy overseas or public forum. Circulate petitions. Contribute to the legal defense for the defendants. Do what you think is appropriate. But please remember when planning an action or event think about how it could affect the upcoming court cases. Ask yourself: does this help or hurt the defendants? Does this strengthen the movement or weaken it in the long-term?

Dr. Tim Trader is a retired naturopathic physician who has a doctorate in nutrition as well as other advanced degrees. Most of his education Dr. Trader has found to be false, disproven by the very textbooks that he was taught from—and by the leading edge of today’s science. Today, Dr. Trader no longer &ldquoractices medicine,” but he coaches “health partners” to recover their own health.
With the same methods he teaches in this workshop Dr. Tim long ago eradicated his own severe allergies and asthma. Today at 45 years old, as a 15-year “living foodist,” Tim can keep up with or outperform athletes half his age.
No treatment of disease is necessary; all we need to do is build health. Then, the body’s own intrinsic healing powers take over—repairing, rebuilding, reversing illness and trauma. There are no pills to pop, no tinctures to drink…just science, and common sense.

Veggie Pride, festival of vegetarian and vegan pride
Our aims : To declare our pride at refusing to have animals killed for our consumption To refuse to rob sentient beings of their sole possessions, of their very flesh, of their very lives; to refuse to take part in a concentration camp system which turns their short lives into perpetual torment; to refuse to do all of this for the mere pleasure of the palate, for the satisfaction of a habit, of a tradition: To refuse to do such things should be just plain decency.
However, history does show how difficult it is, when barbarity is the social norm, to simply say No.
We wish to declare our pride at saying No.
To denounce vegephobia Instead, they want us to feel ashamed. Vegetarianism is concealed, ignored, mocked, marginalized and even defamed.
Vegetarianism challenges the legitimacy of the confinement and slaughter of billions of animals. Just by existing it breaks the law of silence. This is the reason behind vegephobic mockery and hatred.
Of course vegetarianism is tolerated when it is the harmless sort that claims to be no more than a private choice, a matter of distaste for meat or of concern for personal health or the environment. But woe betides us if we openly challenge the barbarous order!
At first we are laughed at. Caring about chickens and cows is supposed to be ridiculous. Laughing at a disturbing idea is a way to get rid of it without having to find logical arguments against it.
But if we do not give in, the laughter turns sour. At first they found us funny, now they call us monsters. We are traitors to the human species since we would limit its rights. We are unworthy parents for not teaching our children the joys of dead flesh. If we care for animals we must be Nazi sympathizers since Hitler too loved dogs. Our ideas are those of an intolerant cult since they are different from what others believe.
We are called terrorists; accused of worshipping nature or of breaking its laws. No argument is too farfetched when it comes to misrepresenting our ideas, putting us to shame and symbolically rejecting us from society.
We refuse to apologize for our compassion. We are proud to declare that we are vegetarians. We are no longer willing to feel shame for refusing to kill. We are here; we are well alive and thinking and will speak out.
To proclaim our existence All over the world we are millions of humans saying No to this carnage. Few civilizations have actually taken for granted that eating animals is justified. But when do you hear about those debates? Mentions of vegetarianism are systematically missing in textbooks and biographies.
"The man who eats meat or the hunter who agrees with the cruelties of Nature, upholds with every bite of meat or fish that might is right." - Isaac Bashevis Singer, Nobel prize in Literature.
By stepping forth we also prove that it is possible to live without meat. We live without eating cows or pigs, chicken or fish or prawns. And we are as alive and healthy as anyone else, despite those media-promoted "specialists" whose science consists of denying the facts. Neither vegetarianism nor Veganism (which rejects all animal products, including milk and eggs) has any particular negative effects on health - indeed; current studies tend to show the opposite!
There is no spell that says that to live one must kill. We are not obliged to do so, neither individually nor collectively. Animal husbandry does not provide food, since farm animals eat much more than their dead flesh can render. Despite this, massive public funding supports animal farming and fishing.
To defend our rights No rights are granted to the animals that are raised and killed for food; but we who stand on their side do have rights, in principle. We are determined to exercise our rights in full, because they are our rights, and because they are theirs - the only rights that they may today, indirectly, enjoy.
We have the right to receive decent meals at school, at work and wherever meals are served to groups of people. We have the right to raise our children without forcing upon them the products of the slaughterhouse.
We are not willing to have our taxes used to support the raising and killing and the fishing for the tastes of others.
We are no longer willing for our actions and our ideas to be systematically silenced. We no longer accept that the only public voices should be those of the corporations and intellectuals who defend the consumption of flesh.
We demand an open debate.
"We are the mirror of your guilty consciences and this mirror will no longer hide"
Faced with images of heaps upon heaps of animals "destroyed" for case of bird flu, BSE or foot-and-mouth disease, we alone felt no shame. We were not shameful for ourselves. But we felt shame for all others.
Above all, we were sad. However much we insist on asserting our pride in saying No to barbarity, this brings us no satisfaction. The animals are slaughtered by the billions. They are held to be dumb, their cries do not count. We shall speak out for them until the massacre halts.
We are animals and stand in solidarity with all animals!
• 2.30 pm : start of the demonstration We ask that the slogans, signs and streamers be exclusively centred on the vegetarianism or vegetarianism for the animals. The Veggie Pride being a demonstration of individuals expressing their pride to be vegetarians or vegans for the animals, we ask that no initials or name of organization be reproduced on the streamers and signs.
• 4 pm : Arrival at the « Fontaine des Innocents » (fountain of the innocent ones). End of the procession and installation of a "happening" symbolizing the ocean of suffering and death imposed daily on the animals.
• 4.30 pm - 5 pm : Happening. The demonstration and the happening will be declared in prefecture in accordance with the law.
• From 5.30 pm : Various activities.
• 7.30 pm : Start of the after-pride. A party will take place, further details will be given subsequently on our website. Possibility of accommodation or housing amongst inhabitants of Paris.
To come to the Veggie Pride :
The SNCF (the French Railway company) proposes worthwhile tariffs for the tickets taken two months in advance.
To know if a grouped departure is planned from your area, you can contact our regional delegates.
A small ads service is also at your disposal for your requests of car sharing, accommodation, etc. Do not hesitate to use it.
Sign the Manifesto of the Veggie Pride ! Independently of your participation in the Veggie Pride, we invite you to read the text of the Manifesto (see below) and, if you agree with it, to declare that by signing it.
