“The most comprehensive 35 minutes about veganism on the internet. Great film!” – Cool, Carbed, and Collected, YouTube

“I have literally been waiting for this all year since the last one. Great job. Its always good, sometimes to look back at what we have achieved, or else we just feel like we are fighting a never ending battle.” – Adam Palin, YouTube

“Fabulous… and I do think that the ‘disrupting’ the conventional narrative is perfect way of describing this venture. With such clear and indisputable evidence that is being drawn on and the more academic audiences that are likely to be drawn to this work, it really represents what plant based news is doing. So exciting!” – PigeonPea, YouTube

“I’ve thought about this for years, and juiced for 23 days. After watching this ….. I will am not going to buy anymore meat & animal products. I have compassion for animals & couldn’t watch any of the exposes inside the slaughterhouses. It would be too painful. So, I’m done. It will be raw & vegan from now on. Thank you.” – Megadrummerboy16, YouTube

“Thank you so much for this video! It’s so powerful. Fantastic effort summing up the global vegan movement – it is inspiring to see that we really are making a difference. I was so moved to tears watching this. You have created something that can motivate, inspire and impassion. This helps to give us the fighting spirit, to never stop challenging, never stop defending and to help others swallow that ‘red pill’ to see the world for what it really is. I’ll be sharing this!” – Theroadnottakenvegan, YouTube
