This week The Bearded Vegans continue their analysis of the recent high profile vegan protests in Australia. With mass demonstrations across multiple cities causing slaughterhouses and traffic to shut down for hours, they ask if this was a win for animals. They’ll start by laying out various metrics for measuring success and then see how this particular action lives up to it. After going over the positive affects of the action they then ask whether the positives outweigh the potential negative damage it may or may not do to the image of veganism as a whole. In what was originally intended to be a mini-episode, this turns out to be one of their longest yet, so strap in for a wild ride!
