Ve­g­ans pre­pare to stage pub­lic street event

The Oban Times - - News -

OBAN ve­g­ans will hold their first pub­lic ad­dress, or­gan­ised by Earth­lings Ex­pe­ri­ence, in Ge­orge Street from 1pm to 4pm on Sun­day Au­gust 27.

Ve­g­ans are asked to wear black and bring graphic im­ages via lap­tops, tablets and other de­vices. Some of those at­tend­ing will also be wear­ing white pa­pier-mache masks.

A spokesper­son for the event said: ‘Those with­out masks will be giv­ing leaflets for the pub­lic to un­der­stand the hor­ri­ble ex­ploita­tion and cru­elty on all species for food, clothes, recre­ation and re­search.

‘This event will be a suc­cess and a foun­da­tion stone for pro­gres­sive fu­ture events to stop the op­pres­sion of all species, in­clud­ing hu­mankind.

‘Peo­ple tak­ing part should be mem­bers of the Earth­lings Ex­pe­ri­ence Scot­land.’

Earth­lings Ex­pe­ri­ence was set up in Fe­bru­ary 2015 and of­fers a num­ber of re­sources to cam­paign­ers who are in­volved in pro­mot­ing an­i­mal rights.

Hard-hit­ting slaugh­ter­house and an­i­mal wel­fare videos and leaflets show the view of a ve­gan on mass meat pro­duc­tion.

The brother and sis­ter found- ers of the Earth­lings Ex­pe­ri­ence group say that all you need to be a cam­paigner is a ‘a lap­top, a mask and a pub­lic space’.

Now an in­ter­na­tional move­ment, this will be the first march and larger cam­paign in Oban.

In the past, Earth­lings Ex­pe­ri­ence cam­paign­ers have been seen out­side Oban High School with mes­sages about meat and the meth­ods used in its pro­duc­tion.
