Editorial from the Secretary & Invitation to the AGM
from EVU News, Issue 1 / 1996
Editorial from the secretaryDear Readers, Dear Friends,
Thank you for all the letters, phone-calls and faxes that told us in a way or another that you liked our EVU News. After 7 months in the EVU secretariat I can tell you that there is a growing interest in the Vegetarian Lifestyle and that I have to answer letters coming from all over the world. I was surprised to see how many people even from the remotest parts of the globe know about the EVU.
On the other hand I am sorry to say that some of our member-societies have not yet noticed that the secretariat is no longer in the Netherlands but in Switzerland. They continue to send their letters, communications and magazines to the old address.
There are more than 30 registrations for the AGM in Trogen/Switzerland. If you too would like to take part you should register immediately. There are still some rooms free.
Swiss journalists wrote about the recently elected minister of traffic and energy as 'a confessing vegetarian'. Let us all (not only the leaders of the vegetarian or vegan societies) be confessing vegetarians. Let us all tell people that we do not eat any living being, for the benefit of animals, for the benefit of our body and soul, and for the salvation of our planet! You will see that a lot of those you are talking to, will follow your example.
Hoping that you enjoy reading EVU News.
