Veganism, how to reach critical mass - Tobias Leenaert

What are the strategies to induce a country to consider the vegan movement useful and necessary for everyone? Tobias Leenaert, ProVeg International co-founder and ex-director of EVA (Ethical Vegetarian Alternative) in Belgium, in this interview with Veggie Channel responds clearly to this question.
Tobias Leenaert works with vegan animal rights associations around the world to help them to overcome the critical mass of the vegan expansion around the world. "Division is a bit of a problem sometimes in the vegan movement like we have different groups with their own different ideologies, different philosophies, different strategies. What I always say is that it is really important first of all to believe in each other's good intentions, to believe that the other people are doing it also for the animals and that they have the interests of the animals at heart. So we have to be charitable towards each other. And that, I think, is the first step for collaboration. And the second step is, I think, if you look at this difference between people who are very abolitionists and people who are more pragmatic and who like an incremental approach. What I try to do in my work is to show that both these approaches lead to the same thing and that all of us want abolition. We want to stop consuming animals, we want to stop using animals for food, for clothing, for whatever. But also an incremental approach with meat reduction can lead to that. In my book I try to explain how this happens. We create, by all these people who reduce, we create a critical mass and we make it easier for everybody to shift more and more in the direction of veganism and abolition".
