Nottingham Green Festival 2021

Subject to covid-19 status

‘Warning: time is running out limit climate chaos – share skills to save the planet’

Nottingham Green Festival is organised by grass routes community based volunteers, with no statutory funding. The ethical standards and environmental / human / animal rights ethos of the event are long established, having evolved from the pre-history of the Nottingham Peace Festival from which it has grown.

Nottingham’s own Green Festival provides the place for the whole family to learn, explore and try the latest in everything environmentally friendly and ethical, whilst also having lots of fun in the beautiful setting of the Arboretum Park in .

Veggies has catered and campaigned at the Green Festival, and the Peace Festival before it, for our entire 36 year history. We were pleased now to be joined by 10 other vegan caterers and other artisan food producers, supporting the events’ new vegan ethos and building on a thirty+ year meat-free policy.

Before the covid-19 crisis the Green Festival continued to break all records in terms of visitors & stalls.

With your support the 28th Nottingham Green Festival will return bigger & better on Sunday 12th September 2021.

You are therefore encouraged to support the regular fundraising events and join in with the planning group meetings.

Alternative Eid Al-Adha Preparation

“The time has come for all true Muslims, be they Sunni or Shi’a, Sufi or otherwise, to stand up for the universal standards of justice and compassion that the Prophet (sal) not only spoke of (both through Hadith and, more importantly, as the receiver of the Qur’anic revelation), but actually put into practice.”

If you would like to take part in preparations for an Alternative Eid Al-Adha in Nottingham you could think about:

as a vegan/vegetarian alternative option for an Udhiya / Qurbani / Sacrifice in readiness for distributing in Nottingham.

The 18kg suggested is a rough estimate of an alternative to the boneless meat from, for example 2- 3 goats.

This is just a humble suggestion for people to think about, a coming together that shall find its time

Vegan Eid Recipes!

Here’s wishing everyone a very happy Eid! To help you make this Eid extra special – and animal-friendly – we’re sharing these yummy vegan recipes with you!

All you need to keep the festivities and kindness alive is to replace meat with mock meat or veggies. Try out these vegan recipes, and share them with all your friends.

The Sacrifice of “Eid al-Adha”
AN ISLAMIC PERSPECTIVE AGAINST ANIMAL SACRIFICE
by Shahid ‘Ali Muttaqi

“We can talk all we want about Sunnah (tradition and the way of the Prophet [sal]), but if we do so, then let us take the whole picture into account. The Prophet (sal) ate primarily dates and barley, only occasionally eating meat (which would have been necessary at that time and place for proper health, as it was a vary harsh climate that demanded a rigorous lifestyle which was very taxing on the human body). Such circumstances do not exist today for most of the developed world, and the fact is, meat-eating with our current sedentary lifestyle is responsible for the increase in cancer and heart attacks throughout the world.

“Meat-eating (and in relation to it, animal sacrifice) is not intrinsic to who the Prophet (sal) was or to what he preached. And most of the current research shows that humans are healthier on a vegetarian/vegan diet (ultimately proving we do not need to eat meat, and therefore, no longer have any justification for animal sacrifice in a modern setting). Certainly the Prophet (sal), who instructed us to go even to China in search of “Ilm, or ‘Divine Knowledge'” understood the importance of advancing our understanding of the world in which we live and living in harmony with our surroundings.

“The time has come for all true Muslims, be they Sunni or Shi’a, Sufi or otherwise, to stand up for the universal standards of justice and compassion that the Prophet (sal) not only spoke of (both through Hadith and, more importantly, as the receiver of the Qur’anic revelation), but actually put into practice. For those who need to take a life in order to survive, then let them do so humbly and with respect for the life they are forced to take, showing as much mercy and compassion as humanely possible in an otherwise regrettable situation. However, for those of us who no longer need to kill in order to survive, then let us cease to do so merely for the satisfaction of ravenous cravings which are produced by nothing more than our Nafs (or lower self). That would truly be the Sunnah of the Prophet (sal).

Alternative Organizations: The Case of Premium Cola  

Premium Cola are an organization without investors, offices, bosses, advertisement, fixed working hours and contracts.

Growing from a social movement committed to enjoying particular recipe of cola, a collection of avid customers morphed into a soft drinks organization.

Only selling to companies with similar values, making decisions democratically and sidestepping capitalistic imperatives of “profit above all”, Premium Cola have managed to sustain themselves over a decade and through radically different ways of organizing and working.

Nottingham University Business School and Nottingham Business School are delighted to host Miguel Martinez from the Premium Cola collective who will talk us through the history and unique ways in which cola can be made in a collective and non-hierarchical way.

Alongside Miguel will be a panel of academics and practitioners who will offer insight and commentary to the Premium Cola collective and the typical issues and possibilities facing organizations refusing hierarchy and adopting counter-capitalistic ideas.

We invite you to join us for an evening of debate, discussion and refreshments.

Thursday, 27th February, 5:30 pm-7pm 

Room C76, Business School North Building, Jubilee Campus

With:

Miguel Martinez, Premium Cola collective

Cath Muller, Radical Routes

Professor Daniel King, Nottingham Business School

Hosted by the OB/HRM division. To book your free spot or for any further information, please contact:Fabian.Maier@Nottingham.ac.uk

Animal Rebellion

International Rebellion – UK Action – Continues 7 October 2019

In partnership with Extinction Rebellion, Animal Rebellion will mobilise 10,000 animal advocates for a two-week Rebellion in London, beginning October 7th. We will take part in nonviolent civil disobedience to demand system change, and make sure the need to end animal farming and fishing, and transition to a plant-based food system is central to this conversation. 

We are partnering with Extinction Rebellion because they are growing more powerful every day. We believe that this movement is the route to ending the industries of animal farming and fishing and achieving justice for animals, because we know that climate catastrophe and ecological collapse cannot be averted while these industries continue to exist.
