Underground Non-Advocacy – Veganuary. https://t.co/UUoyGeX6KR
Veganuary’s first advertising campaign was launched at Kings Cross St. Pancras underground station. Where one may have expected serious advocates ready to engage the public and discuss veganism as a moral imperative, the public were instead presented with a “flash performance” by vegan pole fitness instructors Terri Walsh and Michael Donohoe. Because nothing says take animal interests seriously more than two vegans spinning on a metal pole. I’m forced to wonder whether William Wilberforce ever had a “no slaves in September” campaign set to a backdrop of juggling jesters. Somehow I don’t think that would have convinced those who owned slaves to take the fundamental rights of their slaves seriously; and it doesn’t in the animal context either.
