Lockdown has been going on for a while now. Nobody knows when we will be able to go back to our normal lives, let alone our vegan activist lives. If you want to stay active during this time, we’ve got some ideas for you.
Whether we use animals for food or medicine, it is this exploitation which has led us to where we are right now. People attempting to treat this outbreak with bear-bile could quite possibly be putting us at risk of the next pandemic.
