  • Young Greeks Create Self-reliant Island Society

    On the slopes of Mount Telaithrion on the island of Evia, a group of young Greeks have left the busy city and created a self-reliant rural community. Their goal is to eat only the organic produce they grow themselves, to free themselves from the national electricity grid, and to exchange what they grow or make instead of using money. The project, whose ultimate goal is to create a school for sustainable living, was the idea of four Athenians who met online back in 2008 and bonded over their dissatisfaction with the daily grind of city life. In their second year of living permanently on a forested patch of land next to the village of Aghios, 80 percent of the food they eat now comes from their two herb and vegetable gardens and the fruit they pick off the trees. The group, almost all o...

    We take a look at the validity and value of the “argument” that Hitler was a vegetarian. Referencing several of his biographers and scholars, it is clear that Hitler was as far from a vegetarian as you can get. And even if Hitler was a vegetarian, would it matter?

Dr Adam Shprintzen, author of the history of US vegetarianism "Vegetarian Crusade, tells Ian how the American Vegetarian Society poured its energies into an anti-slavery vegetarian settlement in the Wild West. And how its founder, Englishman Henry Clubb, ultimately took a bullet for the union in the Civil War. Under British rule, Hindu vegetarianism faced a mix of threat and opportunity. In India, Ian meets historians DN Jha, Burton Cleetus, and Bhaskar Chakraborty, who explain how, faced with rule by distant Christians, vegetarianism became more important as a...

Of course noodles are a traditional favourite of Indonesians whether they are vegetarians, or not. But this festival is all about broadening people's culinary horizons. This might look like beef satay, but it's not. The fried fish, might be fried and it might look like fish, but it certainly isn't. All the food here is made of vegetables and the aim is to entice people into becoming vegetarians as part of a campaign to encourage people to eat less saturated fat. According to the festival organisers Indonesia has one of the fastest growing vegetarian societies, so it's not surprising the World Vegetarian Congress decided to stage the festival in Jakarta.

On the slopes of Mount Telaithrion on the island of Evia, a group of young Greeks have left the busy city and created a self-reliant rural community. Their goal is to eat only the organic produce they grow themselves, to free themselves from the national electricity grid, and to exchange what they grow or make instead of using money. The project, whose ultimate goal is to create a school for sustainable living, was the idea of four Athenians who met online back in 2008 and bonded over their dissatisfaction with the daily grind of city life. In their second year of living permanently on a forested patch of land next to the village of Aghios, 80 percent of the food they eat now comes from their two herb and vegetable gardens and the fruit they pick off the trees. The group, almost all of whom follow a strict vegetarian diet, sleep communally in yurts - portable, tent-like dwellings made of tarp often seen in Central Asia. Whatever is left over from their gardens, they exchange in the village for the supplies they cannot produce. 32-year-old co-founder Apostolos Sianos quit a well-paying job as a web site designer in Athens to help start the community, which is called 'Free and Real.' [Apostolos Sianos, Co-Founder of 'Free and Real']: "The crisis or the austerity measures doesn't actually affect you because you create your life and your future everyday, it has nothing to do with the outside circle. It may (have) affected us, but only in a good way because more and more people are willing to be self-sufficient and sustainable, so they contact us, and more and more people after the crisis want to get involved." The group actively use social media, and last year over one hundred people from Greece and abroad asked about joining or collaborating in some way. Dionysis Papanikolaou, for example, gave up a lucrative academic career to be closer to nature and far from the heavy atmosphere of the financial crisis in Greece. [Dionysis Papanikolaou, Group Member]: "If you keep on reading news, watching TV and the crisis, the crisis, the crisis, even subconsciously you say the crisis! Here, there is no crisis. I mean, it makes no difference." The group take pride in being self-sufficient. [Panagiotis Kantas, Co-Founder of 'Free and Real']: "The reality of life is just outside your door. When you have to warm yourself up you actually have to go out in the wood and gather wood, fire wood, and bring it home to actually warm yourself up." They currently organize seminars on organic farming and have drawn up the plans for a large school on sustainable living to be constructed later this summer, and for which they raised money on a crowdfunding site on the internet. [Panagiotis Kantas, Co-Founder of 'Free and Real']: "I just try to be the change I want to be, instead of waiting for a government to make the change, or instead of voting for someone to make the change. I try to be the change." For more news and videos visit ☛ http://english.ntdtv.com Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C

In a bigger society, there are no problems because the people are not concerned with each other. In a smaller society, people are concerned with each other.

We take a look at the validity and value of the “argument” that Hitler was a vegetarian. Referencing several of his biographers and scholars, it is clear that Hitler was as far from a vegetarian as you can get. And even if Hitler was a vegetarian, would it matter? It’s time to lay to rest this persistent myth and non sequitur of an argument.

After their foundation in 1847 and 1850, the vegetarian societies in Britain and America rose swiftly faced new challenges - Britain's imperial moment, and in America the fight against slavery that escalated into a long civil war. Dr Adam Shprintzen, author of the history of US vegetarianism "Vegetarian Crusade, tells Ian how the American Vegetarian Society poured its energies into an anti-slavery vegetarian settlement in the Wild West. And how its founder, Englishman Henry Clubb, ultimately took a bullet for the union in the Civil War. Under British rule, Hindu vegetarianism faced a mix of threat and opportunity. In India, Ian meets historians DN Jha, Burton Cleetus, and Bhaskar Chakraborty, who explain how, faced with rule by distant Christians, vegetarianism became more important as a marker of caste and identity. Ian also sets off on a cycle tour of vegetarian Victorian London, and talks to the first modern academic to study vegetarian history - Dr Julia Twigg.

Free FOOD= Free money=health is Wealth=the Krshna free food program and Vegan outreach could really go into overdrive with this knowledge, so please share it..Enough of the worlds most delicious food can be gathered in one day in the Wollumbin Biosphere to feed a family for five months For Free(as a staple, not exclusively),also if you live in a large country like China or Japan feel free to translate this video and in fact any videos about bunyas,Australia has no bunya industry because of corrupt,rascist politicians and every year tonnes of trees and nuts are wasted whilst people starve and the planet dies.The bunya can take 15years to fruit but will live for longer than 500 years, and provides magnificent beneficial energy. I accidentally promised a member of the White Dragon Society that I would have a million bunya trees ready in three years(this is not going to be possible unless Australia gets some international bunya exposure and publicity).A script has been written ready to be filmed next bunya season Jan to March, so if you want to help please contact the most famous Vegans you Know and then Team Vega. I am not suggesting that land in the wollumbin biosphere be bought for the purpose of providing nutritious superfood for the next thousand years or that we terra form Mars with bunyas instead of mining it for obsolete slave energy, but these ideas deserve serious consideration from forward thinkers.Hey.Right.Viva.

(8 Oct 2010) STORYLINE : It all looks delicious. But these dishes aren't always what they appear to be. Of course noodles are a traditional favourite of Indonesians whether they are vegetarians, or not. But this festival is all about broadening people's culinary horizons. This might look like beef satay, but it's not. The fried fish, might be fried and it might look like fish, but it certainly isn't. All the food here is made of vegetables and the aim is to entice people into becoming vegetarians as part of a campaign to encourage people to eat less saturated fat. According to the festival organisers Indonesia has one of the fastest growing vegetarian societies, so it's not surprising the World Vegetarian Congress decided to stage the festival in Jakarta. The Indonesian Vegetarian Society (IVS) has grown rapidly from just 5,000 in 1998 to over 60,000 now. IVS chairman Susyanto says interest in vegetarianism is growing because people want to be healthy and avoid chronic diseases. Susyanto insists vegetarian foods "can also reduce the risks of chronic and degenerative diseases such as heart attacks, strokes, hypertension, diabetes, cancers and many more". But although doctors encourage all of us to eat more fruit and vegetables, there is no proof that meat and fish can cause all these diseases. Many studies have shown that the omega 3 oils found in fish are positively beneficial. The congress was launched with a performance by a children's choir and young people are central to this year's festival. The IWS is urging the Indonesian government to back it's call for Mondays to be meat free. The campaign is global and the vegetarian cause is also taking place in several other major cities including Sao Paolo, Washington DC and San Francisco. The universal aim is to persuade city dwellers to stop consuming animal products for at least one day a week. The IWS says it's chosen Monday because people are more likely to be ready to consume less after heavy lunches and dinners out over the weekend. Susyanto says the campaign is crucial to reduce the worrying trend of obesity among school children in the capital. His society believes it's caused by the high level of cholesterol and fat in their diet. The local government in Jakarta supports the idea. Deputy governor Margani Mustar says the campaign for Meat Free Monday would benefit the environment as well as local residents. "I think the 'Meat Free Monday' program is a positive event and it can involve a lot of residents. We can see how the culture of vegetarianism can have a positive impact on individual health, society and the environment," he says. Restaurant owner Suharjo Wijaya says his vegetarian business has been booming since he started in 2003. The whole of his restaurant menu is based on ingredients such as soybean and mushroom. Suharjo hasn't eaten meat, or fish for 14 years and he believes vegetables can be made to taste like any other food. He claims his food appeals to customers because they can't tell if they're eating vegetables, or not. While most people get down to the serious business of eating, international delegates at the conference start their agenda for discussions, healthy living and climate change. The International Vegetarian Union, which sponsors the meeting, says the livestock industry is responsible for nearly a fifth of the world's greenhouse gas emissions, and argues there's an urgent need for more people to convert to a meat free diet. Mustikasari doesn't need persuading. She's stopped eating dairy produce and she has been a vegan for the past six years. Mustikasari claims vegetarianism has been good for her and she hasn't fallen sick as much since becoming a vegan.
