There are animal welfare vegans and animal only-fight-against-other-vegans abolitionist vegans. V-EGANISM is neither. Just as there are positive things and negative things about conservatives and liberals, there are positive things and negative things about welfarists and abolitionists. V-EGANISM avoids all 4 "political parties", and remains as an independent in thoughts and actions, only choosing what is right and just for animals, humans, and the environment. V-EGANISM however does have a mission statement which is how the founder of veganism, Donald Watson, originally coined the word's definition. It was a perfect definition then and it still is a perfect definition now! So the following paragraph is V-EGANISM's official Mission Statement--and nothing more, nothing less, we are simply called, "Vegan Activists", with no additives:

"V-EGANISM educates people and helps people and animals regarding the political and social justice cause, Veganism, which is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude--as far as is possible and practical--all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, cosmetics, household products, entertainment, service or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals, and the environment."

Costa Rica Bans Sport Hunting

Costa Rica bans hunting

This could be a sign posted in the country of Costa Rica!

Costa Rica is now the first country in the Americas to ban sport hunting!

An overwhelming majority of the country’s lawmakers voted 41 to 5 to protect its greatest treasures--the animals--who call this tropical paradise home. Costa Rica is one of the world’s most biodiverse countries, and welcomes around 300,000 visitors a year who come to enjoy exotic species like jaguars, pumas and giant sea turtles.

This small Latin American nation, of just under five million people, has become a model for the world to strive to emulate.

They said they have declared peace with nature. They feel a strong sense of responsibility about looking after their wealth of biodiversity.

Costa Rica also takes top honors as the happiest country on the planet, according to the Happy Planet Index.
