SIGN OF LIFE • we know that we haven’t been online for a while on this channel and we are truly sorry about that. Here’s a little update what has happened and where we will go with this: Over the past 6 months a lot of things changed for us. We adopted our sweet companion Sems, which gave us a whole new responsibility and schedule to our individual lives and as a couple. We were able to organize and host workshops for activists and co-organized one of the biggest animal rights activism events here in Vienna called #viennacalling as well as the first official animal rights march by @surgeactivism We started to participate in vigils with @viennacowsave by @thesavemovement more often and put our focus on online activism again. We both overcame anxiety of public speaking and started to get out of our comfort zone more by filming our first, second and third video for YouTube. We decided that it is time to put ourselves out there even more and educate people over the platform that helped us the most. Kevin got more into photography and started videography and I started to care more about written online content again. The both of us got the chance to support the movement and this specific form of animal activism even more. We are very grateful for all that we are able to experience and do and can't wait to fill this account with much more content again. This will stay a side project but not least important. Thank you for staying with us! Thank you for the love and support. #animalrights #loveanimals #animalliberation #loveoverviolence #justice #injustice #animals #vegan #veganlife #veganvienna #veganaustria #vegansinaustria #veganactivist #animalrightsactivist
OUR LUNGS ARE BURNING, OUR HOME IS ON FIRE - and what does humanity and our society do? People are shocked and do what they’ve always been doing: eating animals. . . There’s lots of information already out there, why the amazon is on fire, and why all of this is happening right now - why our lungs are burning. But I will repeat it for you here too (main information: @that_vegan_couple): . ❗Humans demand to eat animal products, so we raise and kill over 56 billion land animals every single year for food. 56 billion!!!! Including marine animals we hit the 3 trillions. Therefore land is needed: . ❗Animal agriculture is responsible for 91% of Amazon deforestation. (Source: rainforestfoundation.org) . ❗Mass areas of the Amazon are cleared, set alight - often illegally - and destroyed by farmers to make way for cattle grazing and growing soy for food used in the animal agriculture. . . ❗The hectares of Amazon land destroyed is insanely high. Due to this, up to 100 plant, animal and insect species are lost every single day (!!) due to rainforest destruction. . . These are just a few infos among many more concerning WHY the rainforest is burning to the ground. It is humans - it is for animals’ bodies and secretion. . . You may now say: “I don’t have to do with this, this happens in Brazil” - YOU DO are responsible for this if you still consume animals and their secretions. You directly pay an industry that is responsible for all the destruction. You take the whole existence of the innocent animals you eat, and the rainforest is burnt to the ground for the food those animals you eat get, and for cattle grazing. . Ask yourself: HOW LONG do you still want to participate in this absolute madness of mass destruction of lives and this planet? How long do you still want to be responsible for it? Or is it time NOW to stop your ignorance? . Let me tell you now: IT IS TIME TO CHANGE! It is time NOW! Stop your excuses, stop your justifications! This is real. You HAVE TO STOP and GO VEGAN! NOW!
ANIMAL RIGHTS PHOTO/VIDEOGRAPHY • How important is it to document actions, demos and marches with a professional photographer and/or videographer? . . We've just recently talked to @joshua.entis about this topic, during his visit here in Vienna and we all agree: professional photos and video material are absolutely essential to this movement. Wether it is of activists at educational demos, participants, signs and flags at street demos, animal rights speeches of people, and of course animals at vigils. . . We need professional vegan photographers/videographers/artists to get active too - to document - so activists can start sharing high quality footage and photos, which will be possibly higher ranked on social media and seen by people. We need activists to share these media's over social platforms so it gets out there, reaching the public to create a change. We have to work together! . . We've had many people write us individually and here on VeCanChange about how the shared material has affected them to look more into veganism. They share that they've either unintendedly came across our profiles on Instagram or we were recommended by others. This is the power of social media and it works with great photos, videos and graphics. Us too, have been influenced by social media to look more into veganism and change. . Let's work together and use our skills. Let's use them together to create change. Let's share what's right here at our fingertips. Don't forget to give credit to those who created the content, who worked hard for it or even risked their life and freedom. Credit them, so we can connect more. So we can share more. So we can change more. Change - what this world truly needs so urgently. #govegan #getactive . . Beautiful photo by 📷 @joshua.entis
VIENNA CALLING • Are you ready for a Vienna Calling of Truth? . . 3 COUNTRIES, 7 CUBES, 1 CALLING . This upcoming October activists from all over Germany, Switzerland, Austria and from all over Europe and the world are getting together to stand strong and speak up for the animals! #viennacalling #cubeoftruth #veganfortheanimals . Together with @nobutirock @valentin_zech @skye_michael.jooste and @therealalexanderkolb I'm so ready to make this big event happen in Vienna this on October 19th. Thank you so much, for being the best team! I can't wait to hug you all (in real and for real)! . . Biggest thanks go to @halsxbeinbruch for creating this amazing promo video!!! . Here's the event: https://www.facebook.com/events/772011983214619/
NO ANIMAL PRODUCTS AT ALL • because any 'product' coming from an animal means, that there is an industry behind it. The intention of making money on someone's behalf, who didn't choose to be in that oppressed situation, getting exploited for their bodies and secretions. And when they don't (can) 'give' anymore, they're all walking through the same slaughterhouse door. . . Nothing humane happens in a slaughterhouse. Nothing is good about being a slave to the system for the taste, convenience and habits of human beings, when we as this human species can actually eat something instead of someone. . . This photo shows @halsxbeinbruch arguing against the 'taste justification' of this woman, whose profession is being a chef. Kevin asked her if her taste is more important than the animals' lives and if she would also eat a dog or a cat (as she has companions at home). In the end her heart and mind got open more and more and she's willing to make a change as she didn't have any valid arguement for animal cruelty and violence anymore. . .

24 HOURS OF TRUTH • at #onedamday in Amsterdam, Netherlands by @anonymousforthevoiceless Over 800 activists stood up and spoke loudly against the injustice done to animals and promoted a vegan lifestyle and a vegan world to the public. 3,586 bystanders are now taking veganism seriously, because of the 24 hours demo. . . We are so incredibly proud of being part of this truly passionate and compassionate movement full of pure and loving hearts fighting for what is right! The 24 hours were a pure and very intense experience, but every single minute and second was worth it. . . All attending activists gave their very best and talked their hearts out to convince people, that there is a better world possible, when working together and defend, protect and save animals instead of paying blood money that puts those innocent beings in those filthy and dark hell holes they are in, getting murdered in this very second as we speak. . . Thanks to the founders @paulbashir_av and @asal__av for creating this organization @anonymousforthevoiceless to give vegan animal rights activists to speak up for the victims of humanities taste, habits, culture and convenience. Thanks to the @anonymousforthevoiceless Amsterdam for hosting this incredible event, which came with lots of responsibility and work! You did an amazing job! Last but not least, thanks to every single activist out there who fought for ANIMAL LIBERATION!!!! . . Thanks to all the activists of the AV Vienna chapter, who fought strongly for the animals in Vienna on that very same weekend!
APPEAL TO SURVIVAL • ‘WE NEED MEAT TO SURVIVE’ 🍋 www.vecanchange.com/blog . What in meat does a human need, which he/she can’t get from plants? Exactly nothing. That’s why killing an innocent living being is unnecessary. We have so many other options, which are far better for our bodies concerning the processing of nutrients and digestion. Nowadays, there is no excuse and justification anymore for eating infant babies of another species and consuming the secretions that are meant for them. It is cruel and it is violent and it is naive to believe that we have to participate in and contribute to this mass slaughter. . Who's the victim here? Take responsibility and go vegan for the animals. .

I CANT IMAGINE and I don't want to imagine how everything would be without you. I absolutely love that you're vegan, that you're kind and compassionate and protecting of all beings - no matter what species, no matter what color, look or language. I love that you speak up for them and speak from your heart whenever you can with such directness, confidence and self-awareness and show people how inconsistent and cruel their way of living, acting and decision making is. I love that you are strong for Them. You're always helping me, and support me when I'm carrying too much sorrow on my shoulders. But you also help me carrying the equipment to make the @anonymousforthevoiceless 'Cube of Truth' possible. I am grateful and so happy to have you by my side. Thank you for being You!
WHAT WE EAT IS NOT A PERSONAL CHOICE. ✊🌱 . It should be a personal choice and it is when you’re choosing between one vegan meal and another vegan meal – if you choose to eat more potatoes than rice or lower your sugar intake. It is never a personal choice to consume animals because there’s somebody else – a victim – involved, who also has a saying in this: the animal. Did somebody ask the animal if him/she wants to be forcefully bred into existence, exploited and killed for a taste pleasure only? . It is a good thing if vegans would like you to go vegan as well if they would love you to choose kindness over violence. It is a positive thing and conversation, not a missionary or forceful approach if vegans take their time to talk to you, to make you rethink in order to grow for yourself – and ask for not hurting another living sentient being, save our planet and care about your own well-being. . As many myths there might be concerning nutritional facts, there is no doubt that the only ethical way to live aligns with our moral humane (kind, compassionate) understandings, is to live vegan. Not paying for murder done to a different species if we don’t have to, to survive. .
