Vegans Support Peace!

January 24, 2011

Veganism, by the creator’s definition of the word (D. Watson created the word “vegan” in the 1940s while being a conscientious objector), is the belief that it is wrong to kill other living creatures–this can refer to people as well as animals. Hence true vegans are not only strict vegetarians who do not support the abuse or killing of animals, they also believe in peaceful interactions between people. To that end, I support the protests, parallel actions and civil disobedience which are  being called for by Veterans for Peace on March 19th (the anniversary of the Iraq War)  in order to end the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars.
