Soya Boom Threat to South America

"The spiraling foreign demand for soya beans could mean the loss of millions of hectares of forest and savannah in South America, conservationists warn. WWF, the global conservation group, says … demand for soya exports, used mainly in animal feed, is expected to more than double within 20 years. The report says millions of hectares of Argentine's Chaco and Brazil's Cerrado - the world's most diverse savannah, home to animals found only in South America, like the anteater, jaguar and maned wolf - have also been converted into soya plantations."

From Our Members

When President Clinton signed my copy of his book in July, I asked him if Chelsea was still vegetarian. He proudly said, "hardcore."

We took the COW van out to the Spanish-speaking neighborhood of Little Village here in Chicago, and passed out an entire box of Por Qué Vegano booklets! The reception was fabulous!
     PS -- We've already gone through half of the 20,000 Why Vegans we printed a few months ago!!!

We've had two successful vegan tables. YSEARC (Youngstown State Environmental and Animal Rights Coalition) now has 30 new members to start off the school year. I also had to the pleasure of speaking with 2 students who work on farms. The one kid's parents have a dairy farm, and raise chickens and pigs ... he said they are industrial. Another time, I noticed two kids laughing, so I asked them if they had any questions. The one kid said he raised calves for the veal industry and told me the one display I had at my table was accurate. Then we just got into talking about the meat and dairy industry -- I learned a lot from them.
     I always love when those who work on these kind of factory farms stop by and chat. They told me they came in with a previous prejudice against vegans because of experiences with other vegans in the past. I gave them both Why Vegans and explained that not all vegans feel that way ... you know the rest! But as the kids were leaving, they signed up for our mailing list. The dairy farmer said, "I never thought I'd be signing up for a vegan group!"

Hi there! I ordered a box of 300 Why Vegan pamphlets last month and I just wanted to say THANK YOU! So far I have handed out 101 of them at the GENeration NeXt Fest in Reading, Pennsylvania, where many kids, teens, and even adults congregate and have festivities (the main event being the skateboard tournament). I would have handed out more, but everyone had so many questions!
-Caroline Kligge

I just returned from outreach tabling at 4 Dave Matthews concerts in California, where we distributed over 2,500 Why Vegans. We had many positive interactions; one person even said she had received a copy of Why Vegan earlier in the day at her school.
