Fashion – but at what price? Your shoes are a dead animal!

If you are an animal lover (of just a person with a conscience) you should seriously consider not wearing leather shoes (and bags, jackets etc.).

Animals are condemned to deplorable living conditions, […]


Vegetarianism: A fish is not a vegetable!

As a vegetarian it is not seldom that I hear the comment “ohh so you are a vegetarian, but you do eat fish right?”. No, of course I don’t eat fish. A fish is NOT a vegetable and I am against all killing and suffering of animals – so of course I can’t accept it […]


Vegetarianism: The meat of the argument

When Ath moved to Chiang Mai in 2000, he found the Vegetarian Restaurant Guide to Chiang Mai, Thailand map by David Freyer (15 March 2000). This map showed 39 vegetarian restaurants and 8 […]


GMO vs. hunger…Greenpeace fight against GM papaya in Thailand

On Tuesday, August 28, 2007 Greenpeace dumped eleven tones of papayas outside the Thai Agriculture and Cooperatives Ministry in protest at the agency’s move to lift a ban on open-field trials of genetically-modified crops. Although Greenpeace is a common sight in Bangkok, I really doubt that most Thai people in general have any idea of […]
