I feel I should start with an important disclaimer: I (the author of this opinion piece) am vegan. I have been so for 5 years, and to be honest, I am guilty of many things I will list below. When I started my vegan journey I was doing many things I consider now as ineffective (and often, very annoying). Fortunately, people grow and learn.
On Friday the 21st of June 2019 we organized a screening of the mocumentary carnage. It was held at the UvA. As it was our first screening event we didn’t know what to expect. However, it went really well! There were laughs and lovely conversations. We got to know more of your beautiful faces and personalities.
At the end we had a conversation about the mocumentary. We shared our views on the topics that were being addressed in it. And imaged how the world might progress.
As we are a vegan organization we thought it might be nice to incorporate a fundraiser as well. We chose to put the donations towards the Dutch sanctuary “koeienrusthuis” (cow rest house in English). They primarily take care of rescue cow’s and recently a goat. It costs them about 180 euros a month to provide and take care of the animals.
On behalf of VSA, we want to thank all of you who came to the screening and made a donation. We and of course the cow’s are very grateful.
We have transferred all the money that has been donated directly to the cause. 🙂
Hi people, Elianne here, I’ve been really into making this chia pudding recently and thought why not share it? I make it the night before since it needs to be put in the fridge overnight, but this actually saves me a lot of time in the morning. So if you are looking for a healthy, easy, fast and filling breakfast I’m coming to your rescue.
How much do you know about the situation of animal testing in the Netherlands? In a technologically advanced country like the Netherlands, it sure feels like we should have plenty of great alternatives to animal testing. Besides, it seems that we only hear very incidentally about any case of animal testing in the Netherlands. This may give you the impression that animal testing is not so common here. But, what is the situation of animal testing in the Netherlands really like?
