Being a Vegan: Interview with Matt Prior by Kathryn Rose NeweyThought I’d let you know that I now have an author video channel where I will be posting content related to books, events, environmental issues, and interviews with authors and others who are saving the Earth in various ways.

Sonia Faruqi - Author and Speaker

Some video interviews I have already posted there include:

  • A series of interviews with Matt Prior, a vegan and a vegan activist, called “Vegan in Five“,
  • An interview with fellow environmental author, Sonia Faruqi, author of Project Animal Farm and The Oyster Thief. Watch the video and read the blog post about her.

Here’s the video introduction to what I will be doing on the channel:

Happy watching, learning and saving the planet! 🙂


Environmental Activists and Indigenous Tribes Honoured

Environmental Activists and Indigenous Tribes Honoured

Animals in the Forest: The Day Terrible Things Came by Kathryn Rose Newey

Animals in the Forest: The Day Terrible Things Came is much more than just a story from the animals’ point of view.

It’s also “a story to save the Earth”!

How does one story save the Earth, you ask?

The story itself is about an increasingly concerning environmental issue – humans ‘developing’ land where wild animals live.

But more than that, the main characters in the story have been specifically included to honour, and stand in solidarity with, certain young environmental activists, defenders and protectors, indigenous tribes, and places where people fought and continue to fight for rights to land, and clean air and water.

All of those honoured are listed at the back of the book, with website links for further research. 

The honoury list includes:

  • Balcombe anti-drilling community groups, Balcombe, Sussex, UK.

  • Barton Moss anti-fracking protection camps and community, Barton Moss, Salford, Manchester, UK.

  • Bentley anti-drilling blockade communities, Bentley, New South Wales, Australia.

  • Dakota water protectors, indigenous tribes and activists against Dakota Access Pipe Line (#noDAPL), Standing Rock, Dakota, USA. Read more about it here.

  • Flint communities affected by water pollution, Flint, Michigan, USA.

  • Moxateteu tribespeople (one of the last uncontacted tribes), part of the Yanomami tribespeople living in the Amazon rainforests, Brazil and Venezuela.

  • Ridhima Pandey, a 9 year old girl and young environmental activist, who has filed a legal case against the Indian government for failing to protect the environment, India.

  • Whanganui River and its protectors, the Whanganui iwi/tribespeople – the river has, after a legal battle, been accorded the same legal status as people, North Island, New Zealand. Read about it here.

  • Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, a teenage/young environmental activist and Youth Director of EarthGuardians, and part of a group of 21 youths who have filed a legal case against the USA government and various fossil fuel groups for failing to protect the environment, USA.

To find out more about how these environmentally significant people, tribes and places are honoured, you’ll need to read the book… 🙂
