I'm heading to the US at the end of June for about 5 weeks for some Animal Rights conferences. I am hoping to get some media and promotion for vivalavegan.net when I'm there as well aiming to interview a heap of US vegans. I am looking forward to meeting in person my MySpace and FaceBook friends whom I've known online for years! Please see below for my press release:
