Were You at the Veggie Pride Parade/Rally? by Jason Das May 18, 2008 11:58 pm Filed under: Events New York City SuperVegan We were there. Were you? What’d you think? Here’s what the New York Times thought. I was pleased to have a great opportunity to sport my “Vegans Taste Like Chicken” T-shirt. (It looks like things were a lot more militant in France.) 9 Comments Comment by Laura Leslie on May 19, 2008 at 12:12 am # Livi has the BEST T-SHIRT EVER. I want one!

YAHOOOOOOOOOOOO GO VEGAN Comment by andreasnyc on May 19, 2008 at 9:49 am # It was very fun and I’m so glad lots of people showed-up! With this as our first year, next year should be awesome! So far I’ve found a few news posts. The NY Times published “Proud Vegetarians, in Costume, Take to the Streets. The Daily News wrote Vegetables on march against meat biz NY1 had a short video piece which is fairly favorable. Vegetarian Pride Takes Over Meatpacking District And the AP did a very short piece on it which seems to have been published-out to about 20,000+ member news sites (based on google matches). Veggie Pride Parade urges ‘Give Peas a Chance’ And those pieces seem fairly positive. Of course I wish they had picked-up “Go Veg to Stop Global Warming”, but it was pretty good coverage. Here’s to Veggie Pride!!! Andreas Comment by elainevigneault on May 19, 2008 at 1:48 pm # Yeah, I was there.
