On Thursday’s Athlone Today, Sandra Higgins spoke to presenter Irena Cvetkovic about GoVeganWorld’s ad campaign, which sparked controversy in the local farming community in Co. Longford when the ad was displayed on a billboard near Granard Mart.
How do we harm other animals when we are not vegan?
What’s wrong with eating dairy and eggs?
Is a plant diet nutritionally adequate for humans?
Is there a moral difference between vegans consuming plants and non-vegans consuming animals?
The show also discusses the censorship of the campaign by an Irish advertising company and the right of vegans to speak about animal rights, and the concomitant right of the public to access this truthful information contained in Go Vegan World’s ads.
