30 Bananas a Day!

Please take the #LiberationPledge and share!

Around the holidays, vegans often feel pressured to remain silent about animals being massacred for the purpose of their loved ones' dining pleasure and familial celebrations. This year, vegans and activists worldwide are going to #TurnTheTables by publicly refusing to eat at meals where corpses and secretions are being served.

By abstaining from traditions we are expected to attend, we can force the issue into discussion, and make animal liberation an inescapable topic.

The pledge is simple:

one | Publicly refuse to eat animals - live vegan.

two | Publicly refuse to sit where people are eating animals.

three | Encourage others to take the pledge.

pledged!

Great! I actually decided to make this commitment last month, but it is exciting to see it become a visible movement. We are also going to be fashioning forks into wristbands to offer a visual meme of our commitment to bend our forks, not our values.

Wow, love it. Great Idea. Thanks for putting it out there

Okay, I am in.

Looks like I am spending Christmas alone but who cares. Last year I rocked up at a neighborhood Christmas do with a massive gourmet salad, rice dish and a watermelon cake that I copied off 30Bad and these were all a big hit. But still the smell and sight of 12 dead ducks sitting center stage on the table meant I had to leave and eat away from everyone else. Also I refused to wash up or clean up at the end and just went home. So really I won't be missing much. Here's to the hope of the future that the new generations will introduce the celebrations of life rather than human or animal sacrifice for the so-called atonement of sin.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks for joining in!

It doesn't need to be that way. You can offer to provide food (in place of, rather than just alongside), help navigate menus or go to vegan restaurants, or offer to meet before or after the meal.

The hope is that rather than alienate people, in the long run this will pressure our loved ones to respect our desire not to celebrate alongside murdered corpses and stolen secretions, and create more comfortable traditions for all - not just the non-vegan majority. Hopefully, along with that they will

The pledge gives us an opportunity to end the passive aggressive silence toward those around us, and create more honest relationships instead.
