A common concern when considering going veg is that this might mean sacrificing favourite foods, including perhaps the joys of chocolate. But fear not! There is an abundant variety of ethical chocolate out there, made entirely without animal ingredients, and yes - this even includes milk and white chocolate made from delicious plant milks and cocoa butter. Yummm!

Animal Liberation Queensland has today launched its Ditch Dairy campaign. Radio ads are playing in high rotation for the next two weeks on popular Brisbane radio station Hit105.
To go along with the radio ads, we have launched a web site - ditchdairy.com.au - which includes information about dairy, a free recipe e-book, and a pledge that consumers can take pledging to ditch dairy.
Christie Ryan won our recent cookbook competition and was happy to share her story with you.

At the time of this story it is Australia Day 2015, over 35 degrees and I am at least 5 days, not really sure but I was taken from my mother yesterday. It is now after 9 am and I am in a pen approx 1m x 2m with my friend who I met on the truck while being transported here and he is very very frightened. My mother said through painful tears, as I was forcibly taken away from her, to be brave, hold on to my dignity and help my friends and one day she would meet again when our lives as we know it are over. She also said some angels would come to visit me.
Please vote for ALQ in the Voiceless People's Choice Awards and help us to tell his story!
What's wrong with dairy?
Rolling green pastures? Happy cows and calves? Wrong.
The dairy industry’s marketing machine tells an idyllic story of cows and calves frolicking in green meadows, carefree and happy. The reality – cows and calves suffer on dairy farms. While shoppers pay a seemingly small price for a litre or two of milk, animals in the dairy industry pay the ultimate price.
Cows are mammals too.
"Veganism is a way of living that seeks to exclude, as far as possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing and any other purpose."
That is the original definition put together by Donald Watson and The Vegan Society, founded 1944. It still stands today.
