Positive Trends in 2019 for a Bright New 2020, Part 3 of 3

We have heard in the first two segments, 2019 has been a huge year for veganism, with rapid growth reported across the world. In South America, citizens of Chile are also working to make the world a better, more eco-conscious place. We are honored to have the Mayor of Curacavi, the Honorable Juan Pablo Barros, speak about what encouraged him to make the decision to reduce the use of plastic bags here in Curacavi. "We saw that there were initiatives to reduce or eliminate the use of plastic bags in other communities in the south of our country that were very interesting initiatives. I think it is everyone’s responsibility to protect that environment." We now welcome Professor Dr. Lee Sung-Choon, who is an expert on unification and speaks about the wonderful progress that has been made in inter-Korean relations. "Recently, there were a total of three unprecedented inter-Korea summit meetings, beginning with last year’s historic Panmunjeom Korea summit meeting. And gave hope to the world citizens who hope for peace. At the macro level, constant progress is being made for peace. Perfect peace on the Korean Peninsula will come."

Positive Trends in 2019 for a Bright New 2020, Part 2 of 3

Today, we begin by travelling to Nepal. Here, the Gadhimai Festival ritual has traditionally resulted in the sacrificial loss of life for countless innocent animals. But compassionate and heroic animal rights activists and countless Nepalese Hindus have challenged the centuries-old event to become a festival that truly celebrates life in all its aspects. "We have to have courage for this, we have to challenge it. For such good deeds, no one can say anything or stop us, and the culture of animal sacrifice is decreasing drastically in Nepal. And I think in our generation, we will be able to see the culture of animal sacrifice reduced to zero." This year, responding to these constant appeals and continuous protests, the Nepalese government issued notices to discourage practices that harm animals. We now move on to Oceania, where we hear our Association member for Australia report on the exciting happenings of Australia and New Zealand.

Positive Trends in 2019 for a Bright New 2020, Part 1 of 3 (INT)

2019 has been an exciting year filled with positive changes all around the world. We begin with the United States, where veganism has gone mainstream! During 2019, American consumers spent nearly US$1.9 billion on plant-based milks,a number that is only expected to grow. Recent years has seen an upsurge of vegan and vegetarian cafes and restaurants opening across all States. This year, Stop Animal Exploitation Now called on the United States Department of Agriculture to enforce the Animal Welfare Act and safeguard the animals in laboratories as well as those with animal dealers and breeders. Let us now go to Germany, where the number of vegan products available at discounters, drugstores, and organic food stores boosted significantly in 2019. Most products are conveniently signified as vegan products by the V-label, and many supermarkets, including Aldi, Edeka, or Lidl, have begun selling their own vegan brands.

Next, she is an international award-winning author, producer, playwright, and librettist, who co-wrote the story for “Loving the Silent Tears: The Musical.” Let’s give a warm welcome, Cynthia Ferrell. "I am absolutely thrilled to be here today. It is such an honor. And in particular, because I’ve been working on a new short story, that I believe illustrates Your plea, Supreme Master, to wake up and move faster, to save our animals, our planet and ourselves. And before I get into that, I’d like to say, particularly yesterday, how bizarre it was for me to be in a place where free water was falling from the sky, and such a lot of water falling from the sky. Because I live in fire country. We don’t have green mountains; we have red ones. There were always fires growing up. And the fires began to burn faster. Why do we wait so long when disaster is on us? Why do we stand transfixed? What does it take to wake us up? What moment makes us as adults move? That’s what this story explores."

Next is Corey Feldman, who began his performing career at the age of three. “I got a random invitation about seven years ago to take part in ‘loving the Silent Tears.’ And it was a beautiful extravagant display of beautiful costumes, beautiful dance, beautiful art. I’ve been a vegetarian since I was 12 years old. I made that decision on my own, because once I was old enough at like 11, to understand that the same animals that were in the cartoons, were the ones that were our friends, and they were the same ones on our plate. It makes zero sense. But we’re changing it. We’re seeing progress. And now my kid goes to a school that has a vegan-based whole foods nutritional menu. This is the power of change. I wrote a song when I was 15 years old. And that song was about how we could change the planet if we wanted to. I’d like to introduce to you my beautiful wife, Ms. Courtney Anne Mitchell, who’s going to singing with me. This song is called ‘It's So Simple.’”

“My name is Lisa Bloom, we have to get as many people veganized as possible. The biggest thing that I can think of in the United States (US) and around the world is to stop the meat and dairy subsidies. So please, I ask each of you, wherever you come from, please take this message home, use your voice to speak up for the animals, never be silent. Think about what laws you can pass back home. If we can do this in California, you can do this back where you live.” Let’s welcome Bill Cunliffe.

In the late 1600s, Johann Pachelbel was a leading light among baroque composers in southern Germany. His organ music was deeply admired by the younger up-and-coming generation of composers. Nowadays most people know him for his Canon in D, which is played regularly at special events, such as Weddings and ceremonies, around the world. Next, we'd like to introduce Franz Joseph Haydn, an Austrian composer who was one of the most important figures in the development of classical music during the 18th century. Haydn’s extraordinary creative capacity led him to compose 104 numbered symphonies and 68 string quartets.

Traditional Musical Instrument: Scottish Bagpipes

Traditional Musical Instrument: Scottish Bagpipes

There are countless different types of musical instruments in the world. Their melodic sounds bring comfort, beauty and upliftment to our lives. "In ancient times, the spiritual practitioners who are connected to Heaven, at times tried to replicate the mesmerizing, wonderful music of the celestial abode by creating instruments." From the first instant we hear them, the euphoric sounds of the Scottish bagpipes seem to clear our minds and transport us to a faraway dimension. This marvellous instrument, also called the Great Highland bagpipe, is Scotland’s national instrument and one member of the diverse bagpipe family. The bagpipe is one of the oldest known musical instruments in the world. The first indication of such an instrument was found on a Hittite slab from the Bronze Age at Eyuk, in the Middle East. One of the most well-known and iconic songs played on the Scottish bagpipes is the Christian hymn, “Amazing Grace.”
