Good Tidings from Taiwan and Australia!
Greetings from Queensland, Australia!
As you may have heard, our recent World Peace Diet lecture tour to Taiwan has been highly successful. I have just posted a href=”http://ct.ebizac.com/t.php/529984/0/B/H/1498214/1945/”>blog entry about it called “Taiwan: Emerging Beacon of Veganism” that gives some of the encouraging details.
There were two main lectures that I gave. The first, at the university in Taichung, drew 1,800 attendees, and the second at Taipei Tech in Taipei, attracted 2,200 people. The response to the vegan message of compassion and justice for animals was received with great enthusiasm by both the general public, who gave standing ovations at the end of the presentations, and also by the university officials, who are keen to promote veganism in Taiwan.
I also gave a lecture to 300 people at one of Taiwan’s many vegetarian hospitals! And held a well-received press conference with respected government officials where we discussed the importance of promoting vegan living through education and government policies.
I recorded two television shows for Taiwanese national TV on both veganism and the healing power of music, and all the events were covered by all four national daily newspapers with dozens of stories, so that besides reaching thousands of people directly, we were able to reach millions of people indirectly with the World Peace Diet message.
Needless to say, I’m deeply grateful for the tireless work of the Taiwanese volunteers of several organizations who made this all possible.
A few days ago, I gave a lecture in Perth here in Australia that was also sold-out with over 300 attendees, and another lecture the following evening that drew another 200 people. We have another 20 or so lectures lined up here in eastern Australia and New Zealand over the rest of this month.
Some of the cities we’re visiting are Brisbane, Byron Bay, Sydney, Canberra, Hobart, Melbourne, Christchurch, Wellington, Auckland, and Hamilton. Here are the details: http://www.willtuttletour.org.au/
Please spread the word among Aussies and Kiwis – thanks! We’re creating some controversy here also…
Other good news is that The World Peace Diet will soon be published in mainland China, and we are already discussing possibilities of a lecture tour there as well.
The World Peace Diet will be coming out soon in both German and Italian as well, and so we are also planning to visit these countries to help spread the word and continue building momentum for a vegan world.
The Italian version is the result of my recently being awarded “The Empty Cages Award” by a major Italian book publisher. Previous recipients include Dr. Neal Barnard and Dr. Tom Regan.
We are also planning a href=”http://ct.ebizac.com/t.php/529984/3/B/H/1498214/1945/”> http://willtuttle.com/schedule.htm
Heartfelt thanks to so many dedicated activists and vegan educators and advocates for helping to make all these events so successful on every level. Together, we can transform our world, and, it seems, we must do so very soon, and stop the vicious attack on our Earth, and on animals and each other that animal agriculture causes. Health, peace, and abundance are completely possible and available to us as we awaken from the injurious official stories of our culture and live with kindness for all.
Thanks for your efforts! That’s it for now,
With love and appreciation,
Will & Madeleine
