  2. Very important concept for vegan advocates to be able to articulate – this is a perfect learning video to enable someone to be able to do that. Thank you so much for uploading this video. Since hearing this concept articulated in this way I have asked many people at my street stall if they think it is wrong to cause unnecessary suffering and death on animals and my experience is the same – they all say “yes”. Then the conversation goes where it ought. Great video!
