Liberation BC and Animal Voices are excited to welcome Earthling Ed to Vancouver!
This event is a special one. Two fold. First, we will be screening Ed’s 2017 film “Land of Hope & Glory“, followed by a talk and Q&A with him. And secondly, we are inviting you all to bring non-vegan friends! We hope to have a good mix of vegans and nonvegans to create a dynamic, and probably lively, discussion!
We are having a raffle to help entice you to bring non-vegan folks; you get an extra ticket entered for every non-vegan you bring and they will get free entries to the raffle as well! Prizes will include several gift packages consisting of: gift certificates for local restaurants, plant-based supplements, vegan food items, books, t-shirts, dvds, a vegan messenger bag ($78 value), $50 gift certificates for yoga classes, and more! Each gift basket has a value of at least $200.
“The Land of Hope and Glory” is an engrossing 48 minute documentary film that explores the truth behind animal farming in the UK, featuring the most up-to-date investigations as well as never before seen undercover footage, with a total of approximately 100 UK facilities featured throughout the film. Canadian farming practises are largely the same, and what is seen in this film has also been documented by many undercover investigations in Canada. The most recent one, at an egg farm in Abbotsford, BC, can be seen here.
Earthling Ed is known world-wide for his accessible and pragmatic approach in communicating with the public on any and every issue concerning animal rights and veganism. This is the perfect event to invite a friend to for a truly educational and inspirational experience on how we treat animals and our food choices.
“The Land of Hope and Glory” is made by the animal rights organization Surge, and narrated by Ed Winters.
