Hard to answer succinctly, but I think the backlash is not about animal rights, but more about a MAN interrupting WOMEN which has historically been the way conversations happen in this country. Add to it that WOC are being interrupted and it’s a recipe to delegitimize a cause. 1/
I think we’d both agree that animal rights is an important topic for many reasons. Unfortunately, in this instance, AR is no longer the topic of discussion. Rather, a man who appears as white on camera, interrupting, silencing, and threatening women of color is the takeaway. 2/
I think the comparison to Bernie is interesting. If you take a look at the video of bernie being interrupted I think two things were going on 1) #BLM had gained enough support to stage a disruption and 2) The optics were in the disruptors’ favor. 3/

Thread : Zoom #santé sur les burgers végétaux 🍔
Le marché des burgers végétariens sans viande est en croissance pour des raisons de bien-être animal, environnementales ou personnelles et également avec les crises sur les produits animaux…
Plusieurs études ont identifié que les régimes végétariens étaient associés entre autre à :
1) une meilleure santé métabolique (moins d’hypertension, moins de cholestérol LDL) (Benatar 2018, Wang 2015, Yokoyama 2014)
2) ↘️ de cancer au global (Dinu 2017)
Cependant, ces grandes études n’ont généralement pas distingué le degré de transformation des produits végétaux dans les régimes végétariens ou vegan. En effet, le blé complet/les lentilles frais sont assez différents d'un produit ultra-transformé comme un burger végétal

Impact of Animal Agriculture

The farm animal production sector is the single largest anthropogenic user of land, contributing to soil degradation, dwindling water supplies, & air pollution.
The animal agriculture sector also encompasses feed grain production which requires substantial water, energy, and chemical inputs, as well as energy expenditures to transport feed, live animals, and animal
products. All of this comes at a substantial cost to the environment.
One of animal agriculture’s greatest environmental impacts is its contribution to global warming and climate change...

Le hashtag #nocleanmeat a été utilisé pour la première fois le 11 avril 2019, sauf erreur de ma part.

La plupart des comptes qui tweetent sur ce hashtag ont été crées en avril 2019, exemples: @GeorgesBazou @francoiDaviid @env_lov @LuccasStephane @RoyerBenoit4
Alors c'est pas interdit ni honteux du tout d'organiser un mouvement à partir d'un hahstag hein, mais j'aurais voulu en savoir plus sur la création de ce hashtag, sur la ou les personnes qui coordonnent et on refuse de me répondre. Qnn sait ? @emma_ducros ?

Je profite de mon insomnie pour vous parlez de ce petit livret qui fait la promesse de vous guider dans un #Careme2019 #vegan #MillionDollarChallenge
[Spoiler] Les #vegan qui ont commis ce guide se foutent complètement du #careme. Vous pouvez lui donner tout les noms que vous voulez, il y a une seule référence à la bible. Ce n'est pas une citation, c'est une paraphrase qui justifie le veganisme.
Mais en voulant faire croire qu'ils ont lu le livre de la genèse ces braves types font une erreur grave, à défaut d'avoir lu la Bible, les catholiques entendent la Bible à la messe et ils savent que Dieu a rendu l'homme maître des animaux. Pas très très #vegan.

THREAD. What *really* makes people angry about vegans? 1/x #vegan…
2/ This comment, by a bank employee to a customer, is depressingly familiar. It was apparently, sparked by some pro-vegan graffiti that the bank employee had seen. But his reaction was not "people who spray graffiti should be punched in the face", he went straight for all vegans.
3/ The bank employee (let's call him Mr Wankshaft) has held an entire social group, to which he does not belong, responsible for the actions of a single pavement-chalker. The punishment for all vegans? Extreme violence, obviously.

A quick break from #BlackHistoryMonth to talk about the #LunarNewYear - I did a similar search for Chinese representations in Canadian official war photographs, and found 10 results. Here's a little #thread about them -
(Photograph is: Chinese Labour Battalions in France celebrating the Chinese New Year on February 11, 1918. William Rider-Rider, LAC MIKAN 3396797) #warphotos
Rider-Rider took four additional photographs by that same title. They're LAC MIKAN 3396798 - 6801. This is neg # O-2447

Is it difficult going vegan?
Reply with your best tips on how to #GoVegan.

#Vegan #plantbased #nutrition #health
Education is key, start with watching vegan health & animal agriculture documentaries.

Try the various vegan meat & dairy alternatives supermarkets have to offer.

Transition slowly by having 1 vegan meal a day, then 2 then all 3.

Quick transitions try Veganuary or Challenge22.
Calcium isn't an issue whilst vegan, you can get plenty by drinking 1-2 cups of fortified plant milk daily, also by eating plenty of leafy greens, beans, seeds, and tofu.
Remember to supplement Vitamin D especially in winter months, to ensure adequate adsorption of calcium.

...This thread will focus on some of the things covered in a little known FB group called:

"Ethiopian Enoch 1 , Flat Fact Square Earth Truth. Ae Pizza Fe Lie ."

This group differs from other #FLATEARTH groups in the following ways:
* Advanced FE information is presented & shit posting is discouraged.
* Promotion of the "round map" or "debate" are forbidden.
* Redundant experiment, observation & recording of data is encouraged.
* The book "1 Enoch" is the main reference text, (Richard Lawrence Translation)
The main work--started by a man named Sam--is focused on Enoch due to Sam having matched what's described in 1 Enoch Ch. 72, 73, etc, with observable reality. Deeper exploration of the Enoch text gives clues to other occulted knowledge about this realm we call "Earth".

1/ Finally getting around to watching the @joerogan podcast with @drjkahn and @chriskresser. I’ll be tweeting occasionally responses into this thread....
2/ at around 13:30: @chriskresser “Back in the 13th century you had Frances Bacon who said for something to be scientific it has to be independently measurable, and falsifiable, and then accurate and valid.”...
3/ “... If you’re sitting there eating an apple. And I’m watching you do that. I can observe you’re eating the apple, I can measure how much is the apple you eat, and I can confirm or refute that you were eating the apple...”

On @tagaq's recommendation, I had the chance to watch @Alethea_Aggiuq’s documentary #AngryInuk, It's about how #WhiteSupremacist #vegan lobbyists have decimated Inuit communities with food insecurity. If you care about justice, watch this:
I want to be clear, opposition to the #sealhunt is #WhiteSupremacist and #racist in nature. It is absolutely clear to me that, at best, organizations like @peta ignore their impact on #Inuit. At worst, they're party to an intended programme of starvation.
In the entire course of her documentary, @Alethea_Aggiuq tried meeting with #vegan and #animalrights activists to discuss their impact on #indigenous communities. Every single attempt at communication was met with silence or avoidance.

As a relatively new convert to being a plant-based eater (aka a #vegan) I'll admit I've been dragging my feet in the final step of conversion - vegan wines and beer. But I'm now only buying wines that don't use animal products.
This led to my first interesting encounter with a Sommelier this weekend. It was a BYOB affair with no corkage fee (nice!). On short notice the only vegan wine I could find was a Kaiken Malbec. Normally this wouldn't be an issue, ...
... but the restaurant featured Italian cooking with chefs and staff from Italy, including the above mentioned Sommelier. He tried his best to be polite, but I could tell he was offended I brought an Argentinian wine into his establishment.

Our food system has unsustainable growth. Moreover, eating cheap pushes increased soil & health costs to the future. Dumping excess/cheap food makes economic sense. Add compounded feedback loops, subsidies and dependencies of just a few crops & we are in to hit a triple wall 1/5
Sound scientific data-based recommendation is to climb up to the wall is to purposefully increase food prices, force crop diversification & remove subsidies. Build resilience, mitigate effects & finance increased costs and adaptation of env/ag/health. ~A food Kyoto protocol. 2/5
But this is 100% DOA, it would never fly for political, cultural & [micro]economic reasons, hitting poorest people everywhere the most. Good example of the limits of data-driven (vs data-informed) policy. No eater, voter, manufacturer would like to increase everyday food tax. 3/5
