Our 2019 programme is below
11am: Hunt Investigation Team!
An update on the impact of all the HIT investigations to date, including the live fox cubs thrown to the South Herefordshire Hunt hounds, the shooting of a caged badger during the 2018 cull and the grouse moor killing fields.
12noon: Animal Rights: Where are we now and where do we need to get too?
Edward, a commercial media and technology solicitor, demonstrates where our focus on animal activism needs to be. He suggests a new way of reframing law instead of the Utilitarian approach and looks at how commercial interests unfairly trump animal rights too and how we as humanity need to look at things differently. In working together, we can liberate the voiceless animals from the plight they currently find themselves in.
Edward was Chair of The Vegan Society, and is a Vegan Chef, Presenter and author of “Essence: The Beginner’s Guide to Veganism”.
