Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Movement for Compassionate Living is a UK based organisation promoting veganism and sustainable living. Membership is informal, based on subscription to the group's journal New Leaves, with subscribers in many countries. The organisation was founded by former Vegan Society secretary Kathleen Jannaway and her husband Jack in 1984. The stated aims of MCL are: To spread the vegan message and promote simple living and self-reliance as a remedy against the exploitation of humans, animals and the Earth. To promote the use of trees and vegan-organic farming to meet the needs of society for food and natural resources. To promote a land-based society where as much of our food and resources as possible are produced locally. MCL argue that; Compassionate living is about making connections between the way we live and the way others suffer, between unnecessary industrial development and the destruction of the planet. It involves a commitment to work non-violently for change, promoting lifestyles that are possible for all the world's people, sustainable within the resources of the planet, environmentally friendly and free of all exploitation of animals and of people.show more
