snapped these students reading ¿Por qué vegetariano? at Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla
One student turned down a booklet at first but then quickly changed his mind when he looked closer and saw that it was about animals.
was horrified by the pictures and wanted to know what to do.
I told him not to buy animal products and instead choose plant foods.
apologized for initially turning down the booklet and said it was because he
thought I may have been handing out religious pamphlets.
pointed at the booklet and said, "This is the real bible.
A student is transfixed (above) by one of the 3,000 ¿Por qué vegetariano? booklets handed out by Alan Jiminez (below) and Vic Sjodin
on the UNAM campus in Mexico City.

Yasin [above, left, with Vic Sjodin], a student from Turkey, ran up and gave me a hug and a drink he
bought for us, and said he
was so happy to see us speaking up for the animals, asked how to get involved, and said that he
wanted to donate once he
has a job.
was so full of enthusiasm it really got to me. Had a long talk with Juan and Amber
[below, left] during a slow period, and both are interested in going veg.
Juan had already cut out pork and beef but "loved chickens.
I said with a smile, "If you love them, you don't harm or eat them.
face changed when he
realized by eating chicken he
was consigning far more lives to death and suffering.
I applauded his
cutting out some animals products, and encouraged him to try other foods.
I also told him of my favorite analogs and where to find them - he
was very receptive.
While leafleting Riverside City College, Vic also met Elsa, another student who is considering veganism!
While leafleting at George Brown College today, I chatted with a student who had tried being vegan for a couple of months but found it too difficult.
I asked her
what was the issue, and she
said things like bread ingredients, cake, chocolate.
I told her
not to stress out too much over very small ingredients such as in bread.
hadn't thought of dark chocolate!
took a Guide and is going to give it another go!
At Glendale Community College
, Vic Sjodin
also met Ivana, who's been vegan for two years!
