    2. Auckland – “The Compassionate Contrarians” Book Launch @ Grey Lynn Community Centre
      2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      Catherine Amey’s new book explores the hidden history of vegetarians in a land of meat. New Zealand’s economy has long been based on animal exploitation but there have always been people who refused to take part in animal exploitation. Some for religious or health reasons but others for ethical reasons, and they often spoke out on other issues such as peace, feminism, socialism, animal rights and the environment.

      Published by Rebel Press (www.rebelpress.org.nz), The Compassionate Contrarians (269 pages) is the first in depth history of vegetarianism in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

      Join Catherine Amey and other speakers for the Auckland launch of the book, plus a few cakes and a short speech or two at the Grey Lynn Community Centre, 510 Richmond Road, Grey Lynn, Auckland.

      Copies of the book will be on sale at the event.
