Editor’s Letter

W

e’re officially celebrating The Vegan Society’s 70th Anniversary on the 1st of November 2014. To challenge the status quo by proposing a new paradigm benefiting other animals, people and the world was huge in 1944. While strong vested interests in exploiting other animals still prevail today, awareness of cruelty to non-human animals and information about the benefits of a plant-based diet is at an all-time high.

In this issue we will learn more about the roots and shoots of The Vegan Society’s work, and other active vegans’ outreach. I loved the

interview with inspiring and humble 103 year-old Mabel Cluer on page 12. Wisdom can be found in simplicity. Guest-editing this winter issue of The Vegan provided me with useful insights. However, I will be handing back the baton for the spring issue. Let us rejoice in that simple but powerful word that captured the hearts and minds during the past seven decades when inspired people believed a new way of living was possible and desirable. Hopefully one day soon it will catch on in the world as the new status quo: vegan. Jasmijn de Boo Chief Executive
