Gary Yourofsky (Testimonials- excerpts)

I've been a vegetarian for 15 years and have been slowing giving up dairy and eggs. As I bawled my eyes out watching the last video of the beatings and pleasure being taking in hurting these animals, I vowed to not purchase another animal product again~ Keli

Thank you for speaking, filming, and posting your YouTube video. Last week a friend shared it on Facebook, and watching it was the final straw that has made me decide to strive to do no harm in my buying and eating habits~ Scott French

I just watched a video of your lecture at Georgia Tech. It was hands-down the most inspirational and logical thing I've ever seen or heard. The cruelty made me cry in the beginning, and the legitimacy made me cry in the end, once the truth of it really sunk in~ Shannon Galaski 

Gary’s Best Speech You Will Ever Hear (Georgia Tech, 7/8/10) translated into 19 languages, 443,592 YouTube hits.  Whether viewed online or received in-person at hundreds of college classes it packs an awesome, vegan punch.  Video > Link
Gary’s Lecture or Q & A Session (19 Languages) > http://www.adaptt.org/videos.html#

The standard diet of a meat-eater is blood, flesh, veins, muscles, tendons, cow secretions, hen periods and bee vomit. And once a year during a certain holiday in November, meat-eaters use the hollowed-out rectum of a dead bird as a pressure cooker for stuffing. And people think vegans are weird because we eat tofu?~ Gary Yourofsky
