Hi all.
Thought I'd have a look at what's being talked about, given the recent surge in veganism. I've been vegan for 28 years, coming from the 80s & 90s anarcho punk/animal rights scene. Live in a bit of an old-school vegan bubble (most of my friends are vegan or veggie, partner vegan, sister and mum vegan, partners parents veggie), rooted in animal rights and activism.
No idea what veganism looks like now - see a lot of lifestyle stuff in the mainstream media - but I do know I can get a decent coffee at a railway station, but I don't see the same level of activism (not direct, anyways).
So, here I am, catching up with my fellow vegans, of which there are now a shed load more than there was in 1990.

Welcome Pete. I hope you are doing well. I watched a video in the 1970s made by the Vegan Society promoting veganism and I was struck by how similar the arguments are to today.
