KILLING IN THE NAME OF WAR

Vivisection and in vivo experimentation on animals by the military means that thousands of animals are injured, exposed to poisons, biological viruses and bacteria, shot or blown up by our government every year

Welfare

Godzilla is a fictional prehistoric monster awakened and mutated by nuclear radiation that first appeared in the mid-1950s, nearly 70 years ago, at the height of Cold War paranoia. Godzilla represented the fear of a nuclear war, a towering unfamiliar monster that threatened to destroy entire cities. Much like the disaster movies we see today, Godzilla held a mirror up to society and despite the amount of time that has passed, this cinematic representation of mutation and animal testing has endured. Earlier this year a Japanese film called Mary & The Witch’s Flower was released which depicts an alternate universe where animals are kept in cages and experimented on by two crazed magicians with disastrous results. Remove the fantasy element from Mary & the Witch’s Flower and you’re left with an unsettling reflection of the modern world.

About Vegan Life

It’s finally June, the first month of summer, and that means it’s time to head outside. Remember to grab your cruelty-free, vegan sun cream on your way out, as well as your trusty copy of Vegan Life. We’ve got a great issue for you this month and I’m particularly excited about sharing our Animal Rights Special with you. We have guest articles from PETA, Viva!, Animal Equality and the Humane League. These organisations are talking about their successes, animal rights after Brexit and current campaigns to get behind. We have also had the pleasure of working with some fantastic writers this month including Megan Banks, who is reporting on her experience of 28 days as a plant based fitness mentor and our regular columnist, Maria Slough, who has written a inspiring piece about Dr Rebecca Ellen Jones, also known as the Vegan Doctor. This month we’re bringing you an interview with viral celebrity Macka B about his music, becoming a YouTube sensation and veganism. Macka has some great tips about spirituality and embracing your own style, as well as veganism. He told me: “To me, if you’re eating death then it’s going to be on you; you’re going to be thinking more negative thoughts.” Finally, we have an article about the environmental impacts of desertification around the world, which is a global threat to food security. It is an issue that I was aware of, but having researched and read the article in June’s issue, I am astonished by the magnitude of the problem. The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations estimates that 25 per cent of all land globally is highly degraded. I’d love to hear your thoughts on desertification — please send us an email to let us know what you think. Enjoy the summer sun!
