The schedule for the 11th Annual Veggie Pride Parade in New York, NY, has been released. The event features over 20 speakers representing a wide array of perspectives on veganism, animal liberation, free speech, and more. Participants can also network with over 30 exhibitors who will be present. An after-party buffet and all-vegan comedy show follows the event.
Are plants simply mindless automatons, going through the motions of sprouting, growing, flowering, fruiting, re-seeding and dying? Is this a basic process, requiring no thought of temperature, soil moisture, humidity, nutrients, pollinisation and reproduction? Does it all just occur, coincidentally or, if the processes are somehow deliberate, is it simply nature being nature?
