We’ve already placed A3 posters around Invercargill:
The last two were not left in place, INVSOC does not condone blu-tacking easily blow-away-able scrap paper rubbish to public walls, but THESE posters will remain firmly in place outdoors! :-)
Thanks to Phantom Billstickers for helping us out, in particular Will, James, Lynne and local Invercargill agent Walter (PPK?)
I spoke with “Down To Earth with the Guytons” about World Vegan Day, which will be broadcast Monday.

You can hear Jordan’s interview on “Down To Earth” here! Topics included are World Vegan Day, annoying Librarians with fireworks in the Library, burying TVP to promote Rhubarb growth and Chicken Friends. Not one but THREE songs are quickly sung around 22m40s, starting with conversation about gooseberries :-)
We gave out muffins on the street, “Hello, would you like a muffin? We’re sharing muffins for World Vegan Day” *points to poster behind us* “Do you know what a Vegan is?”
Almost everyone did, and a woman actually said she’d seen our posters up during the week and “OH, is today the 1st of November? I was going to do that!” (being vegan for World Vegan Day) :-)
We also had fun taking tofu and plant milk around local Non Vegan industries. We took Sanitarium Hotdogs and marinated tofu to a local butcher shop AND the Alliance Slaughterhouse chain headquarter building. Soy and Oatmilk to Dairy NZ and a local Sheep’s Milk factory.
We also had a letter published in The Southland Times, an article written about us in The Southland Express and were mentioned during local radio station More FM’s morning news update, “happy World Vegan Day” :-)
Carrying on from the tradition established last year, we’re again releasing a World Vegan Day episode with Vegans from around the planet sharing how 2012 has been for them, and what they are most looking forward to in the future. Vegan Pilot Marty, of Marty’s Flying Vegan Review fame flew us around in his jet :-) Click the picture below to see “photos” of our adventures around the world, and the full episode :-)
