The vegan utopia arrives, as soon as possible. Bacon bros will seem to be the murderous barbarians we know deep inside us. Animal products will go into hiding as class A drugs. "Honey": nothing more than a term of tenderness; "Sausages": wrong word in ancient texts for Gaelic. Sheep will be recognized as sheep rather than lambs, pigs or sheep. In the last years, meat will become a pillar for the right, a symbol of Brexit. A Brexit, all that Engerland represents. But that does not mean that we can just wait for the masses to self-educate or that veganism continues to proliferate at its current rapid pace.

Enter the next generation of activists. Made up of both long-time vegetarians and strident vegetarians, and many new and enthusiastic people who want to share their new belief system and new way of life, they send the message together. Of course, the work of this brave group will not be popular with marauding animals in our lifetime. Look at Malcolm X, Karl Marx and those who laid the foundation stone at Stonewall: none of these people pushed his ideas forward without ruffling (nicely!) A few feathers. Someone must be the face, voice and personal brand of the revolution.

Let's take the opportunity now to fully celebrate these vegetarians who defend animals, the environment and the planet.

Joseph Joe Johnson, 29 years old

The new vegan activist

After being humiliated by hordes of carnivores on Twitter for being too aggressive towards a farmer on TV, Joseph Joe's courage has never wavered. In a public statement via an Instagram story video, he explained that what people mistakenly perceived as "talking to him" and uttering "threats" to his family was simply an attempt to take back airtime. in the dominant narrative dealing with death. Making noise for animals is a necessary practice. Is the average heifer able to do anything but suffer in silence when a farmer plays his ovaries like meridian balls through his rectum wall? No she is not.

Alexis San-Roman, 32 years old

The new vegan activist

You may remember Alexis or Ali six months ago, when he was in the national news with a worried look, holding what looked like a simple muffin. He had gone to grab a quick bite at a local Tesco café and was confident that his 99p cake was accidentally vegan. He consulted the cashier, a man in his sixties who glanced at the package. After a mouthful of muffin, he was disgusted that he had eaten not only whey protein, but also palm oil. "Things must be properly labeled so that what happened to me here today will never happen in another vegan," Ali told the Sun. "Older ignorant generations need to catch up or die like the backward dinosaurs they are."

Dan Alexander, 25 years old

The new vegan activist

This vegan YouTuber from Surrey became a meat-based mukbanger just a year ago and was used by his committed public to spread the word. Her viral video, "The Meat Industry Mistreats Women", which currently has more than 11.4 million views, explains how the systematic exploitation of female species bodies in the industries of meat and dairy products is symptomatic of our view of the world that women are vectors of reproduction and domination. He was questioned by critics who accused him of having removed his message from the founding book on the same subject by Carol J. Adams, The Sexual Politics of Meat (1990). But that was before social media. Dan Alexander is right, as was the other writer. Can you really look in the mirror and call yourself a feminist if you eat meat? Her book How Veganism Is Feminism appeared in Virago, Summer 2019.

Andrew Price, 19

The new vegan activist

Inviting to a UK-wide conversation, Andrew went to a place where no vegan had gone yet: pursue his university for discrimination on grounds of identity, AKA, his veganism. When he began his studies in geography at the University of Salford, he found himself stuck with animal dinners. In another splash on the right, Andrew was photographed with a greasy bacon pan – a replica of the one he found in his hallway for three days in a row. "It's one of the biggest shame of our time," Andrew said. "You would not expect LGBTQ people to live with homophobes, nor should you make vegans live on meat eaters." He asked that the two groups be separated until there is a student body that would take the consumption of animal products on campus seriously.

Morgan Samuel Andolina, age 20

The new vegan activist

An important initiative from another new face of peaceful vegan protest nearly derailed last week. Morgan's demonstration in a local supermarket ended when he followed a mother of five with a megaphone after seeing her buy cheap products (the woman, who claimed to be disoriented and s & # 39; 39, to faint, subsequently abandoned the prosecution). Not one to let the system's just paperwork destroy a fledgling career in social justice, Morgan tripled his followers overnight on his recently verified Instagram account, where you can buy one of his "Do not Look love, become love – MS Andolina "Sustainable organic cotton t-shirts.

Joey "Joe" Andrews, 26 years old

The new vegan activist

Joe was found in a whirlwind of controversy when his hashtag #VeganismIsRacism was named for associating animal abuse with POC abuse. His account was briefly closed by Twitter after being criticized by users who found misogynistic tweets from there two years ago, while he was much younger. After adapting his point of view to a naturally central, understanding and compassionate movement and lifestyle, Joe launched a new hashtag campaign, #VegansAgainstRacism. On his award-winning podcast, The Vegan Dude, Joe raises awareness about the inclusivity of veganism and presents a segment in which he shares his global recipes. His cooking show of the same name, The Vegan Dude: Recipes From Dalston To Dominica, (whose debut episode, Dan Alexander), airs on streaming services in May 2019.

Sydney Pandolfi, 21 years old

The new vegan activist

A few months ago, Sydney went solo on a battery farm in the Midlands to save and bring back a chicken (unfortunately, he left the door open and about 250 chickens ran on the M60, an accident abnormal caused by some members of the public, chose to focus on). The adorable selfies of him and the chicken in the fleeing car became viral and were even turned into fan art by American teenagers. Half of the Italian graduates of Australian origin ranked first among PETA's best vegan list and have now signed with Storm Model Management. Rumor has it that he's the face of the next leg of the Nike campaign: "Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything. "
