Sam Tucker is Vegan Outreach's coordinator for Australia & NZ. He's handed out something close to a quarter of a million leaflets that promote a vegan diet to end the suffering of farm animals. Consequently, he knows a thing or two about effective leafleting & gave a presentation on this very subject at Melbourne's Animal Activist Forum late last year.

Whether you're seeking a non-confrontational form of activism, or you're wanting to expand your existing activism skills & methods, listen to this presentation & learn directly from the master!


Laurie Levy, campaign director and founder of the Coalition Against Duck Shooting, brings us up-to-date on the campaign to stop Victoria's routine recreational slaughter of native waterbirds, including last year's massacres at Koorangie Marshes which shocked even the Game Management Authority.  He goes on to explain what we might expect this coming killing season. We also find out how to support and get involved in CADS' campaign to end this government-endorsed annual atrocity.

We speak with Kristin Leigh, the lead organiser of the campaign Melbourne Against Horse Drawn Carriages. Kristin gives us an update on some recent changes to the campaign and where it is headed in the future.

We're sharing the talk given by dedicated animal liberation activist Joey Carbstrong at last year's Animal Activists Forum in Melbourne. Joey offers excellent advice to fellow activists, concerning the fine art of vegan outreach communications, whether it be online or on the street. Drawing on his own experience, he explains candidly what works and what doesn't. Even if you just sometimes struggle with effectively communicating your veganism to your non-vegan friends, family & colleagues, this is the show for you.

There are some animal advocates that transform your thinking and how you approach your activism. Psychologist Melanie Joy and Animal Asia founder Jill Robinson come to mind. Well, add Sandra Higgins to the list. Sandra has a clarity of purpose that will inspire and challenge you.

Sandra is the Founder and Director of Eden Farmed Animal Sanctuary and the creator of the world's largest vegan advertising campaign - 'Go Vegan World'. As a psychologist, Sandra is the Director of The Compassion Foundation of Ireland.

Nearly 50 years on from when British psychologist Richard Ryder coined the term 'speciesism', we now have a World Day for the End of Speciesism.

It's a day to call for an end to discrimination against another purely on the basis of their species.

We are savouring some sweet victories! We chat with Chris Delforce from Aussie Farms whose 'ag gag' charges, as well as those of Dori Kiss, were dismissed. We also chat with Andy Meddick about the recent successful campaign that resulted in a refusal to permit a new greyhound breeding & training facility .
