Israel is on the fast track to become the world’s first vegan nation. And they took a huge step this week when a vegan activist won Israel’s Big Brother television show. I want to introduce you all to Tal Gilboa, one of Israel’s most prominent animal rights activists and one kick-ass vegan. Big brother is the most-watched entertainment show in Israel and Tal has been there the entire season to speak up for the animals. Her activism has had an incredible impact, with a recent poll showing that 49% of viewers have changed their minds regarding animal suffering in the food industry and an incredible 60 percent saying that they will make a change or have already made a change in their eating habits because of the show. Four of Tal’s 18 roommates from the show including the runner-up also went vegan because of her witness.
There is not much more I can say that Tal hasn’t said herself. Please watch the video to hear her powerful words. The reason that I wanted to share this news with you is that Tal and all the incredible activists in Israel prove that speaking up for the animals can make a difference.
Israel has exploded with vegan options in restaurants and grocery stores in response to the ever-growing vegan demand. Change is possible. Keep speaking up. Keep fighting. We can do this. Now get out there and spread the word!
