Earlier this summer Ecorazzi got super hyped when we received our press pass for the Animal Rights 2008 National Conference, which took place this past weekend in Washington D.C. The plan was for me to attend the event, possibly chat with Heather Mills, and bring you back all the hottest green gossip from the festivities. However, a last minute emergency back home in Florida kept me from attending and so, while I can’t bring you anything exclusive, I do have some fresh off the stove AR2008/Heather Mills news. And we all know how much our readers LOVE Heather Mills news!

Last weekend the former model and controversial vegan was honored by the folks at FARM (Farm Animals Rights Movement) and in return made a huge $50,000 donation to the group. Mills also took the opportunity to talk about how being vegan is basically the most awesome thing ever and announced plans to launch her own brand of vegan food. Wait…don’t get too excited! If you’re a regular reader you might remember my rather disappointing Mills concoction at the Farm Sanctuary Gala earlier in the year. Hospital food say what? Even so, Mills plans to launch her own vegan range in October and open a chain of vegan restaurants in the near future.

FARM is a public-interest organization promoting vegan, plant-based diets to save animals, protect the environment, and improve health. They are one of my all time favorite groups and have been responsible for a bazillion successful grassroots campaigns. To find out why I have a crush on FARM, visit FARMUSA.org.

WHY ARE WE SO CONFUSED?

The desire to be consistent morally results in an illogical rationalization of this nonsensical belief that it’s okay to eat the animals we claim to love.

Compared to the modern world, it was much harder to be vegan in Ma‘arrī’s time and place due to the religious and social pressures.

If the Syrian author of that poem could go vegan, anyone in our era can buck far milder social pressures and go vegan.
