Vegan Mothers Day. Ending Slavery – May 9, 2023

LISTEN HERE (above is the link to the Vegan Nation 05.09.23, 1/2 hour audio replay)

Vegan Nation Mothers Day Special 2023.  Swiss visionary artist, vegan chef, and food-forest veganic gardener, Madeleine Tuttle teaches us how to make homemade oatmilk. In this 2023 interview, Dr. Will Tuttle discusses his essay, Honoring Mothers and Ending Slavery.  The artwork pictured here was inspired by Emily.  Emily was a 1,600 pound Holstein dairy cow who, along with other “spent mothers” in her herd, was next in line on the kill floor at a local slaughterhouse.  Emily escaped by jumping over the stockade fence. For weeks, Emily escaped the police who, after enough failed corral attempts, had been ordered to shoot her on sight.  Massachusetts residents reported seeing Emily running with a herd of deer throughout the winter months (and even spotting Emily nosing around the starting line of the Boston Marathon).  As a result of a solo rescue attempt by Meg Randa, a mother, a vegan & co-director of the Peace Abbey, Emily was eventually coaxed onto a trailer. Then, for seven years (until her transitioning over/natural death), Emily lived at the Peace Abbey in Sherborn, Massachusetts (where she is buried). In Emily’s infancy, a property status/commodification tag had been forced through the skin of her left ear.  Madeleine Tuttle’s “To Be Free” painting shows a token (a golden thread) that had been placed (gently & temporarily) onto Emily’s ear during a ceremony at the Peace Abbey.  Tune in Tuesday, May 9, 2023! 4 pm Eastern Daylight Time. WCUW 91.3 FM Worldwide online: Hosted by Marlene Narrow, Worcester, Massachusetts, USA.
