Invercargill Vegan Society Business Cards Arrive!

*UPDATE*  Currently we have ONE, count 'em, ONE full member, NINE "Honourary Members" who are Vegan, but currently "promoting Veganism in less civilised areas than Invercargill" ;-)  I like to think of it as the Invercargill Vegan Society being SOOOOO important, she needs separate locations throughout the world :-)  Consider yourselves "Ambassadors", with full Diplomatic Immunity ! Sign up in the comments below! *UPDATE*

Well, my Invercargill Vegan Society Business Cards, Magnets, mailing stickers and stamp arrived!

Now I've gotten cheap Business Cards, I think its fair to say the Invercargill Vegan Society is open for business!

I made sure to make myself "Dictator for life", so I couldn't be "Jobsed",  that future members could boot me out of my own creation.  Pretty clever for a dumb Southlander, eh? ;-)  No sir, if the board want me outta here, its gonna be a case of "leader in exile", ended by a beheading in Wachner Place, attended by Socialists.

I got this stationary from Vista Print, (NZ) I'd recommend them.  The business card option I went for were stock, thin card.  I decided on double sided printing, with "Albeit Mach Frei" , North Korean for "Afterburner allows Mach Three", or according to Wikipedia,


"literally "work makes free") is a German phrase that can be translated as "work will make you free," "work liberates"[1] or "work makes one free".[2][3] The slogan is well-known for being placed at the entrances to a number of Nazi concentration camps, including most famously Auschwitz I, where it was made by prisoners with metalwork skills and erected by order of the Nazis in June 1940."

I chose this as an allusion to Rain Without Thunder , my favourite movie from 1993 about Abortion in America, a lot of the "abortion-movies-from-'93" sucked,  or,  according to "The Experts", its also the name of a book?

"...If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning...."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_Douglass

I hope that by promoting Veganism, via the Abolitionist Approach of creative, nonviolent consumer education, the Invercargill Vegan Society, and her current single member can join other groups of dedicated Vegans worldwide to help nonhumans, by promoting Veganism as *easy*, as the *least* we can do for other animals.

By standing up for nonhumans, Chicken Friends included, we *can* change their status from being seen and treated as *things*, sold for a price, to being recognised as independent, free *Friends*:



 If you'd like to become an honorary member of the Invercargill Vegan Society, please leave a comment of support :-)

  12. Honorary membership would be great, Jordan. Maybe someday when we figure out how to fly without leaving a carbon footprint (if your chicken friends can do it, maybe we can learn from them) the whole vegan society can gather together in your beautiful country.
