As many prepare for the 2009 G-20 Summit here in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, there’s a great deal of energy. That makes sense, given that it’s one of the world’s most important economic meetings, and there are many challenging issues to address. For a few reasons, it calls for vegan waffles.
First, we very much hope for a violence-free event, where various groups have ample opportunity to peacefully and safely vocalize their suggestions before the media and the world. We hope that the thousands of military, police, and other security professionals also find their work here to be relatively easy and uneventful, and return safely to their families.
Secondly, we hope for a productive session for the world leaders, including generation of next steps in some of the same areas that veganism seeks to address, e.g., environmental sustainability, food security, energy use, human/animal rights, conflict, and public health.
To express our support in these areas, we’ll be serving up vegan peace waffles here in Pittsburgh on Thursday, September 24, from 6-9 PM. Anyone participating in Pittsburgh G-20 activities (including visitors from other states/countries) is welcome to attend. Because we can accommodate only around 20 people, please RSVP here if you plan to attend.
And if you plan to join us by hosting your own G-20 Vegan Peace Waffle Summit in your city/country, please let us know via contact form or comment below this post.
