Very exciting article I read this morning on the website: Peaceful Planet. Most Vegans have heard of Gary Yourovsky, for a very good reason, and this new project of his is something to be so excited about:
A campaign in Israel to circulate Gary Yourofsky’s inspiring YouTube veganism lecture amongst the Israeli public, resulted in Israel’s most watched TV network featuring Gary in a 10-minute extensive news item about veganism on Israel’s prime-time TV Channel 2 News.
The campaign was a joint project of the three prominent Israeli Animal Rights and vegan lifestyle organizations Anonymous for Animal Rights, Shevi – Animal Liberation Israel and Yoman Hayati (Animal Log). The ‘alliance’ have set up a website dedicted to Gary Yourofsky’s lecture, www.gary-tv.com, and the campaign has been a huge success in Israel.
Quite possibly the best vegan educator on the planet, Gary states “Israel media is reporting that my speech is now the most viewed EVER in the history of Israel. Out of 8 million people, there are nearly 400,000 YouTube hits for the Hebrew version of the speech. I am closing in on 3 million YouTube hits overall! I’m going make Israel the most vegan-friendly nation on this planet. Just wait and see.”
Gary has been invited to speak in more than 20 countries, but this is the first time that he’s agreed to travel abroad and will be visiting Israel first in September of this year for several lectures at high schools, colleges and public venues and then on to Italy and Slovenia in October.
