July 2012 INVSOC Potluck

All Invercargill Vegan Society potlucks are wonderful, but tonights was especially fantastic in terms of the food selection :-)

Dan, Russell, Jordan, Katharine, Steve, Kerri and Jess attended.

A few of our Invercargill Vegan Society poster designs, after we trialled having actual posters up around Invercargill city :-)

Early draft for our World Vegan Day 2012 poster :-)

We had Vegan shirts from around the world representing their various organisations!

Team Vegan, a New Zealand athletic Vegan group, Russell and Jordan wore Team Vegan shirts for the Invercargill "Surf to City" fun run , on the right, a Herbivore Clothing shirt branded "I'm Vegan and I love you", from Portland, Oregon USA

Left, our friend Barbara DeGrande's Animal Rights and Rescue of North Texas shirt, right, clothing from the Peaceful Prairie animal sanctuary in Colorado which promotes Veganism, well done Joanna! :-)

Left, a custom shirt made by Sam Tucker in Hamilton NZ, a comedy making dark of the "beef+lamb" New Zealand "meat council" and their rather offensive ads featuring New Zealand sports women dancing to a song written and performed by a Vegetarian, to promote the idea that women need iron, that it only comes from the blood and bodies of Others.  Episode 64 of Coexisting With Nonhuman Animals had an interview with vegan friend Zimena, about her daughter having to sit through an hour of corporate propaganda in her primary school, a mascot called "Iron Brion" about how eating cows and sheep makes us strong.

To the right, Hellhound Hotdogs, a fantastic Australian street cart selling Vegan hotdogs!  Well done Justin, we look forward to meeting you here in Invercargill early next month!

A petition from the Green Party against our current government selling off crown assets to make a quick buck short term, endangering the nations stability long term.
