Joaquin Phoenix’s Oscars speech in full

  I’m full of so much gratitude now. I do not feel elevated above any of my fellow nominees or anyone in this room, because we share the same love – that’s the love of film. And this form of expression has given me the most extraordinary life. I don’t know where I’d be without it. But I think the greatest gift that it’s given me, and many people in [this industry] is the opportunity to use our voice for the voiceless. I’ve been...

6 million animals are killed for food every hour

6 million animals are killed for food every hour. By the time you finish reading this article around 1 million animals would have been killed. In just one day over 150 million animals are killed for food around the world (just on land excluding fish). These numbers are so high that as individuals we cannot comprehend them. How can we understand 150 million animals killed in one day, or even 6 million animals killed in one hour? The...

But how can the simple process of switching our diet have such a global impact? Let’s try to explain. Animal agriculture impacts on climate change in two main ways. Firstly, massive deforestation takes place to make way for pasture...

What would Jesus say?

What would Jesus say about factory farming today? Many a time when I talk to fellow Catholics, they all mention the number of instances that animals are killed in the bible to justify their eating habit. Few know that in the book of Genesis it is clearly suggested that eating animals came after Adam and Eve ate a forbidden apple from the Tree of Knowledge. Upon creation God stated I have given you the seed-bearing plants throughout...

What would have made you become vegan? The survey results.

One thing I disagree with that vegans do is show footage of farm animals suffering. Before I went vegan, my experience was that such shocking videos do one of two things: either they make you feel sorry for a little while followed by a full recovery as if you never saw anything, or they make you feel defied and want to retaliate by going to the other extreme and saying mean things about animals. But after I became vegan, as I started...

We think of fresh beginnings, new starts and we all try to look forward (hoping for better days). I would like to look back at 2018...

Wales – land of castles, sheep and vegan food!

It’s summer and when the mercury starts to creep up beyond tolerable numbers, it time to try to escape the Maltese summer heat and (try to) go to a cooler climate further up north. This year the family vacation was planned for Wales. Whilst I have been to England, Scotland and also Northern Ireland, I had never ventured to Wales. I guess if ever there was a time it was now. Before the Brits leave the EU and the sun finally sets...
