    The coronavirus crisis is revealing that the powers that be of the European Union have learned nothing from the Eurocrisis.

    They are currently betraying the interests of the majority of Europeans in the same way that they have done so in 2010 — by failing to mobilize existing money and public financial instruments in the interests of the many. With their current decisions, they are jeopardizing public health, public goods and the interests of Europeans.

    Every day at 19:00 CEST or 20:00 CEST [depending on the day] switch on the television from the future!

    We call it TV because we like retro-futurism. But it’s much more than TV.

  4. Jordi Casamitjana, the UK animal rights activist fighting to legally protect all ethical vegans

    Who is Jordi Casamitjana, this animal rights activist who people call the “wasps-man”, the “monkeys-man”, the “zoos-man”, the “bulls-man”, and now the “vegan-rights man”, and who may end up securing the protection of all ethical vegans from discrimination?

    Jordi Casamitjana, a UK-based zoologist who has worked in animal protection for decades, and has been an ethical vegan for more than 17 years, is currently (2019) in litigation in an Employment Tribunal case against an animal welfare charity which fired him in 2018, and the tribunal will assess if he was unfairly dismissed because he is an ethical vegan and/or he blew the whistle about the charity’s pension fund being invested in companies that test on animals. However, for his case to be heard the judge needs to determine first whether ethical veganism is a protected philosophical belief under the Equality Act 2010, as there has never been a legal case in the UK that tested this. Therefore, if Jordi’s case is successful, he will effectively secure the legal protection of all ethical vegans from discrimination. However, Jordi had no enough funds to pay his legal fees so he started to crowdfund for them using this website: https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/securing-protection-for-vegans/ . Because of the need to attract more donors for his landmark…
