Here's to all the vegan activists working to wake the world up from it's delusion of speciesism 🍻 They will look back upon us as the sensible, logical and morally just ones, and be beyond ashamed they ever called us extremists or terrorists. ✌️❤️🌿
Every sentient being values their life. There is no moral way to take life from them when we can all easily eat plants. Welfare is not an answer, the abolition of animal exploitation is. ✌️❤️🌿 - This quote is from @jamesaspey keeping it real on the @loganpaul podcast the @impaulsiveshow. Check this episode out, it's very entertaining and educational.
If this guy doesn't need to kill animals for protein, neither do you. - @patrikbaboumian turned vegetarian in 2005 and graduated to veganism in 2011. Here are some of his accomplishments since that year: 4th place at loglifting worldcup (185 kg) German record in loglifting +105 kg (185 kg) German Champion and total winner in log lifting -GFSA German record in beer keg lifting (13 repeats) Germany's Strongest Man 2011 European Champion in Powerlifting Class –140 kg division (GPA) World record beer keg lifting (150,2 kg) World record Front Hold 20 kg (1:26,14 Minuten) World record yoke-walk, 550,2 kg over 10 m in Toronto World record yoke-walk, 560 kg in 28 seconds - The main takeaway here is that Patrik currently holds the world record for the most weight ever carried by a human being. He made that record four years after going vegan, and the record he broke was his OWN record he set while being vegetarian. He said he did it just to disprove the myth that we need animal protein to be strong. What a fucking legend. ✌️❤️🌿
Click the link in our bio to see the full results now or go to: vomadlife.com/survey - We surveyed over 12,000 vegans from 97 different countries about all aspects of their veganism from how and why they gave up animal products to which books, documentaries, social media posts, YouTube videos, public activism, speeches and more forms of vegan activism were the most effective in terms of actually turning people vegan - and lots more. - We ended up raising as many questions as we answered, and we hope this survey will help all vegans continue to advocate for animal rights in the most effective way we know how to. ✌️❤️🌿 - URL: vomadlife.com/survey
In terms of each of our own personal contributions to climate change, the most meaningful shift we all have complete control over and can all make right here right now is to stop giving any more money to the industries that are causing it - to go vegan and boycott all animal agriculture, which contributes up to half of all greenhouse gas emissions, destroys more natural habitats (on land and under water) than any other industry and wastes millions of gallons of fresh water every year, all because people want to eat animals instead of plants. If you honestly care about the environment and you're not vegan, you're honestly a hypocrite.
