Vegan in Palestine
Vegan in Palestine was started by a group of vegan friends who wanted to build a community and connect with other vegans in Palestine by organizing monthly vegan events.
A group of Palestinian vegan animal rescuers known as Baladi – Palestine Animal Rescue Team created Vegan in Palestine as a way to build community with and organize vegans together. Today, Vegan in Palestine has evolved into a dynamic volunteer run organization that advocates for and rescues street animals in Palestine, organizes vegan meetups and charity work in cities around Palestine, provides resources and support for Palestinian vegans and almost-vegans, and much much more.
Our philosophy at Vegan in Palestine is that every life deserves to live a life of dignity and respect. We believe in justice and peace for ourselves as Palestinians, but also for the other humans and nonhumans around the world. We maintain the belief that veganism is the future, and we as Palestinians, are doing our part to minimize harm to the animals and our environment. Though the health benefits of a plant based diet are not to be discredited, our driving motivation for veganism are the ethical concerns regarding society’s exploitation of and violence against animals.
We envision a world and specifically homeland as a place with no borders or cages for both humans and animals. We seek to create a world in which we love and care for those we share our land with, whether it be by providing food and shelter for street animals in Palestine or making sure our society has knowledge and access to adequately nutritious plant foods.
