OLD VILLAGE PUMP IN TRIM
GO VEGAN WORLD A BILLBOARD ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN DUBLIN
My original intention was to photograph the Paulista Take-A-Way and at the time I did not notice the large billboard with the message “It’s Not Personal Choice When Someone Is Killed”.
I have friends who operate vegan restaurants here in Dublin or are considering the introduction of vegan options and one of them mentioned the Go Vegan World advertising campaign.
Go Vegan World runs educational campaigns that provide members of the public with information on the rights of other animals not to be owned, used as resources or killed.
Earlier this year the Go Vegan advertising campaign in Ireland featured messages on billboards encouraging people to adopt a vegan diet, and is linked to Eden Farmed Animal Sanctuary in Co Meath. However, the organisation behind the high-profile vegan billboard advertising campaign has been accused of being a “secret society” and lacking in transparency by (IFA) Irish Farmers’ Association with a spokesman saying that “It seems extraordinary that a multimillion euro advertising campaign across Ireland and the UK would be run from an obscure animal sanctuary in Ireland.”
Go Vegan World also ran a campaign in Northern Ireland for the first two weeks of January 2020. It consisted of eighty five animal rights ads on buses in Belfast. The ads state: “Dairy Takes Babies from their Mothers and It’s Not a Personal Choice When Someone is Killed”. The Ulster Farmers’ Union objected to the ads and attempted to have them removed.
