Why you should care about the non human animals of our world.

Vegan Cooking

Looking for recipes or tips on how to veganise your cooking? Well this is the section for you.

One compassion

Are those working for compassion towards animals reducing compassion for humans or strengthening it? Here I make the case that compassion ultimately knows no line of species, and that we should teach compassion for all beings.

Running of the humans

I'd never written a game, so thought I would try something as simple as possible just to start to understand how it is done. It just so happened that the Running of the Bulls was on in Spain the following week, so there you have the theme. If you don't know what the running of the bulls is, it's a stupid event where crowds of people, including lots of drunk tourists, harass bulls and then kill them once the event is over.

Vegan Bingo - the game

I've developed a fun game called Vegan Bingo, you can play it on the web or download it as an Android application. Have fun!

Running for Their Lives

Horse racing involves the slaughter of tens of thousands of horses every year, across the globe perhaps hundreds. The fact that people are completely unaware of this, and the other ethical issues surrounding horse racing, prompted me to write this piece for Animal Liberation Queenslands newsletter.
Such a situation, is dreadful. Not the suffering and death of the animals, but that man suppresses in himself unnecessarily, the highest spiritual capacity - that of sympathy and pity towards living creatures - and by violating his own feelings, becomes cruel. And how deeply seated in the human heart is the injunction not to take life. But by the assertion that God ordained the slaughter of animals, and above all as a result of habit, people entirely lose their natural feeling.
Leo Tolstoy

Writings on an Ethical Life

Peter Singer

As someone who believes passionately in animal liberation, the fact that I have never gotten around to reading the ground breaking Animal Liberation by Peter Singer, was only due to slackness.

To make up for this, and to get a feel for Singers other writings, I bought this book for a bargain price and proceeded to read.
