Gluten ... is it dangerous for all of us? (Presentation in German)

Kirsten Koschig
Alternative practitioner

Does gluten represent a threat to our health?
Why is it that these days everyone is talking about gluten?
The say that gluten makes you sick, thick and stupid.
But how have people been able for milleniums to eat bread without any problems? And why does bread cause belly aches in everyone, all of a sudden?

Steve Jenkins und Derek Walter/Esther the Wonder Pig

2012, Steve Jenkins was contacted by an old friend about adopting a micro piglet. Though he knew his partner Derek wouldn't be enthusiastic, he agreed to take the adorable little pig. It turned out there was nothing "micro" about Esther. She needed more space, and Steve and Derek bought a farm - and their whole life changed.

Undercover investigations and their contribution to animal protection (Presentation in German)

Ria Rehberg/Animal Equality
2. chairperson of Animal Equality Germany

Animal protection organizations in Germany regularly publish secretly made recordings of factory-farming, thereby revealing systematic animal suffering and gross cruelty to animals. Now, voices of dissent are growing loud, claiming that such recordings are the result of “trespassing” or “organized crime” and are to be banned. Using the example of Animal Equality’s work, Ria Rehberg clearly shows that not only is this de facto wrong but that such investigations are an indispensable means of information.

Beyond animal husbandry: vegan organic agriculture as a foundation for a change in agriculture (Presentation in German)

Daniel Mettke
Dipl. Ing. (FH) eco-farming, works for Förderverein Biozyklisch-Veganer Anbau e.V. (BIO.VEG.AN.)

Every day we hear news about the bad impact agriculture has: exploitation of humans, animals and the ecological systems, with fatal consequences for climate, the environment and all living beings. Animal farming is the biggest field of institutionalized exploitation of animals worldwide. Even with animal activists saving some of these animals and enabling them to live a dignified life at animal sanctuaries: the ways in which farming is practized remains widely unchanged by this. Vegan organic agriculture is the only concrete form of agriculture that includes the idea of animal rights while contributing to the ecological diversity and to ensuring food safety. The presentation will introduce a concrete way of vegan organic agriculture and aims at illustrating why a transformation in agriculture and the implementation of animal rights cannot take place without concrete alternatives as well as agricultural and environmental demands.

The animal rights situation in Hong Kong, China and East Asia (Presention in English)

Doris Pui Ying Lee
Activist/Hong Kong Vegetarian Society

While we sit here in the world's vegan capital, what is actually happening on the other side of the world? China sees an ever-growing demand for meat with no animal welfare laws what-so-ever, while Hong Kong tops the world in its per capita meat consumption and prides itself as the capital of fur ... If a vegan animal rights movement should be global, what role do we in the West have to play in it? What different cultural contexts are we looking at? The speaker wishes to gives the audience an overview of the happenings in the region meanwhile debunking some of the deep-rooted stereotypes.

Aktion Tierleid zeigen
Animal rights association

Outside protests involving big screens to show videos of how animals are kept are an efficient way of activism. The technical difficulties often seem very intense, however. We do that kind of activism involving a beamer and a big screen on a regular basis and we would like to show you how to do that correctly and efficiently (in terms of the technical equipment and the legal situation). With an amount of 400 Euros (including the costs for the beamer) you can get the appropriate equipment without even needing any external power sources anymore.
