Who originated Veggie Pride Parades?

David Olivier and a handful of similar minded people had the idea of the parade. Things really took off on 31 August 2001 when a proposal for a march in Paris was raised in two Internet discussion groups dedicated to animals. Several people showed interest in the project. To firm up the idea, another discussion group was created on 3 September 2001. This new group formed the basis for the political platform of Veggie Pride.


Why is Veggie Pride Parade effective?

It's effective because it brings to public's attention, and raises awareness in the community about vegetarianism, as well as serves as a good platform for local Vegan and Animal Rights activists to educate the public.


When are Veggie Pride Parades organized?

Veggie Pride takes place on the third Saturday of May. We encourage you to organize it at the same time, if possible, to strengthen the Veggie Pride movement in general.
