On the Spokane Craigslist Vegan forum I asked if there were any animal-rights libertarians in the area. Nobody replied, but I got a (combined) -7 rating.

Call for Submissions: Good Luck Changing The World

GLCTW is a vegan cooking zine looking to compile vegan recipes that are relatively simple to make and accessible for long-time vegans as well as those who are looking to transition to a more vegan-centered
diet. We are looking for recipes that fall under the categories of
breakfast, lunch, dinner, and desserts. We would prefer them to be
self-made, but if you altered or found inspiration from another recipe,
please try to cite the source. All accepted submissions will be given
credit in the zine and contributors will receive a free copy of the
final product!

If you are interested, please e-mail goodluckveganzine(at)gmail(dot)com!

i've recenly written my first zine "herbal healing for piercings and tattoos"

It’s a thorough body art aftercare zine that includes vegan and non vegan recipes on how to properly care for and heal your new piercings and tattoos.the zine is 37 pages and
includes information such as how the skin heals, herbs to use, ingredients to
avoid in aftercare, recipes on making your own aftercare products, and organic
jewelry.  It would retail at $3/zine but i would rather do trades.

 

I can be contacted at weedsmith@live.com

I just made an infuriating discovery today. My brother just arrived for a visit from California and asked if he could have a Luna Bar. I said, "sure, help yourself". He read the ingredients and told me they had WHEY in them!

I thought I'd thorougly researched this and on several vegan forums it seemed liked everybody raved about how much they loved them, so I had the impression that they were ALL 100% vegan. I guess you've got to really read the fine print!

These little bars cost me over a dollar each, DISCOUNTED. I ordered 2 boxes on-line. I'm going to finish them, because I hate to waste. (I've admitted often my veganism is "imperfect".)

But I'm going to boycott Cliff and Luna from now on, and I'm going to let them know about it. I really think it's sneaky and inconsiderate to vegans not to warn them of their "occasional exceptions" in their products. They should know the impression they give.

Yeah, this really annoys me.

Hi fellow vegan zinesters!
I landed a weekly comic strip at Vegan Mainstream! The second comic just posted today. It could use everyone's support, re-posting on Facebook and re-tweeting on Twitter, etc. It's also free entertainment for just a click! Here's the link: http://www.veganmainstream.com/author/mcmiller

Thanks!!!

That's a great post Johnny, and I totally get where you're coming from.

I have found that there's a lot of 'scene points' to be earned from veganism when it comes to punk and hardcore scenes - and that is often the motivation behind making this choice. For a while I thought that this wasn't necessarily a bad thing, no matter how short lived these kids' veganism is/was it was still a start, and raising awareness of animal rights.

Unfortunately after meeting (and even sharing a house briefly) with a few people like this I get the impression that so often people who become vegan for the 'wrong' reasons very rarely stick with it, and don't put the effort in to avoid all animal products, only the ones that suit them and that they can make a big show of avoiding - so long as they can tell all their straight edge or vegan friends about it for the effect. They won't give up on animal tested cosmetics or the 'must have' leather shoes, and even when it comes to the diet won't bother to think about what's really in their food, so long as it looks suitably vegan and sparks 'conversation'.

As a result, this always seems kind of damaging to the movement. The contradictions and bad attitude displayed by people like this only serve to confuse those on the periphery, and ultimately put them off.

Of course, there are people who will come to veganism from this route and stick with it, and as they learn more about it will come to be valuable members of the community and take action to take the movement forwards - sadly, these people seem to be few and far between, and more often as soon as someone's bored with the scene or the music will move on and forget about it.

As for the placement of a McDonalds' advert alongside Rise Against's lyrics, I wouldn't be surprised if this was deliberate - on McD's part that is. I wouldn't put it past them to bid on keywords relating to animal rights as a means to influence people away from it by showing them a picture of one of their products in a good light as a distraction to the potential vegan.

James, as an older vegan myself, I understand your malaise. There always will be a younger generation that is joining up at sporadic times for various reasons. Maybe Rise Against got some kids to be vegan. Maybe that lame tv show on Sea Shepard (Whale Wars) did. Then you have to think about those people. Some might be nice mild mannered, the kind who do phone campaigns. Other might be 'hands-on', the kind who do direct action. But what it all comes down to is the longevity of people's convictions. If one kid wants to be vegan today, will he tomorrow? Seeing ads for McDonalds above a Rise Against song do not help. Our culture is inundated with ads infinite times a day.
This all seems like a digression, but I hear your concerns. You are validated in them. Don't forget too, that everyone's entitled to their own opinion.
