Hey Vegheads,
We have one last exciting July event lined up for you all:The Age of Beasts Movie Screening “The Age of Beasts” explores the complicated relationship that Canadians have with nonhuman animals- featuring exclusive interviews from activists, a former food inspection agent, and VegFest Calgary’s keynote speaker, Carol Adams (author of the seminal text “The Sexual Politics of Meat"). We invite you to bring a non-vegan friend to this important screening!!

Last week, a horse was severely injured and later euthanized after a chuckwagon race at the @calgarystampede. Animals have lost their lives almost every year of the Stampede, and these incidents are drawing attention internationally because they illuminate a system of entertainment that is unjust and unsustainable

Unfortunately, the tragedies in Calgary are not isolated incidents. The sheer volume of nonhuman animals being killed each day for their flesh is difficult to fathom, and safely hidden from mainstream discourse.

For this reason, a candlelight vigil has been organized by @calgaryanimalrightseffort and VegFest Calgary. While most VegFest events aim to be fun and upbeat, organizers also feel that there is much work to be done to challenge dominant patterns of thinking about how animals are used and treated in our society

This vigil is meant to honour not only the victim of the Chuckwagon accident, but to highlight the enormity of suffering that occurs through the entertainment, cosmetics testing, fur, and food industries. Regardless of whether we are vegan or not, organizers emphasize that we should all reflect upon and critically examine the process that exploits nonhumans to serve the need for humans to be entertained

The candlelight vigil will take place on Saturday, July 15, 2017, at Victoria Park Stampede Station from 9:00-10:30.

Here are some highlights from Get Stacked Vegan Pancake Breakfast! Special thanks to David De Borja for taking some great photos!

Also thanks to @calgaryvegan for the amazing "Why Veganism" wall! Such beautiful words written from individuals of all ages!
