4:00 - Liz Tyson - Sudfeh ("Serendipity"): Empowerment of Young People in Occupied Palestine via Vegan Outreach
Hunger and the use of animals for food both result from systemic abuses of power in distinct yet interconnected ways. This along with the causal relationship between animal-sourced food consumption and disparities in food access will be examined, with the disproportionate harm caused by gender and racial biases highlighted.
Is it really easy for everyone to go vegan? lauren will discuss the achievements, shortcomings, and gaps of vegan advocacy with respect to various social ills. She will highlight both the inadequacy of vegan outreach in oppressed communities and communities of color, and how forms of vegan outreach have the potential to either dismantle or reinforce historical relationships of oppression and imperialism.
A broad overview of the multiple connections between animal liberation and queer liberation from an American queer black perspective.
This talk explores the different ways that vegan activists can begin to engage in effective community-based activism. From coordinating vegan education and outreach programs to planning festivals and social events to organizing protests and demonstrations, getting active at the community level can be a powerful way to advocate for animals.
Sudfeh will be the name of the first vegan cafeteria in Palestine and will be established in Al Quds University in Jerusalem towards the end of 2016. This presentation uses the story of Sudfeh, from its inception to its implementation, to explore issues surrounding food sovereignty, veganism and empowerment of young people in the occupied Palestinian territories. Co-authored by members of the Palestinian Animal League (PAL) the talk will be delivered on behalf of the team by Liz Tyson, PAL's Programmes Manager for Animal Welfare and Outreach.
