Billboards in World Vegan Month

A series of large vegan billboards were unveiled on World Vegan Day November 1st 2016 at various sites in Glasgow with the goal of promoting veganism as a “justice for all” philosophy.



The unveiling featured special guest Pig Freud, a pink fluffy guitar-playing pig and animal rights campaigner, who is featured on some of the billboards championing the cause of veganism and justice for all living beings and inviting everyone to the upcoming Vegfest Scotland, a colourful and vibrant vegan festival taking place on December 3rd 4th 2016 at the SECC to find out more about being vegan.



Pig Freud’s manager Tim Barford added:

“It’s wonderful for Vegfest’s very own animal superhero Pig Freud to be stood just next to his own posters, fighting for the rights of the over 60 billion land animals killed for food every year just for our palate pleasure and convenience. With the huge abundance of vegan options available these days, there’s absolutely no need for anyone to continue using animals for food, clothing and entertainment. Pig Freud’s posters are making it loud and clear that animal use should end and veganism is not only the ethical but also the logical alternative to continued animal use. If you’re still not yet convinced about whether you can be vegan, come to Vegfest Scotland and find out for yourself, an amazing array of options ranging from ‘meats’, ‘cheeses’, yogurts and chocolates, to clothing, bodycare, cosmetics on top of lots of information from talks, cookery demos and workshops, all to help you go vegan and stay vegan afterwards.”



Pig Freud had a busy day on World Vegan Day - after posing in front of his own billboards, Pig Freud was then on his way to Mono Cafe Bar, recently awarded Glasgow’s Favourite Business Award, where he performed a few of his favourite tunes to celebrate Mono’s fantastic achievement as well as to campaign for veganism as an ethical position and inspire creative vegan education amongst his followers.



Pig Freud’s performance at Mono was also streamed live on his own Facebook page
