Excuse the plug, but this is for a non-profit vegan outreach event which I hope will inspire people:

The Alternative Vegan Festival is a DIY, grassroots event which will show how being vegan doesn't have to cost the Earth.

We can reduce the environmental impact of capitalism by through conscious consumption. This event will focus on highlighting ethical, anti-consumerist ways of living.

There will be practical workshops on the day about many topics, including creating your own products (jam, milk, booze, toiletries...), cake baking & turning rubbish into useful stuff. Discussions include veganism vs. freeganism, nutrition, mass-catering, anarchism, ethical consumerism and getting stuff for free! There will also be campaign stalls and a cinema room.

We will have a DIY pizza stall - bring some vegan toppings with you. Dough will be provided. There will also be a screenprinting workshop, so bring fabric and designs!

Come along and find out more about low-impact veganism, spend the day helping out or just chilling out with like-minded or interested people.

Come to rAtstar Autonomous Social Centre, 298 Camberwell Rd, Camberwell, London on Sunday 7th November. The festival will be open from 12noon until 6pm and entry is free!
