Was Victor Jara a vegan? Probably not, but here (white seat) is where he sat last before they killed him.
Victor Jara sass hier (weisser Sitz) kurz bevor er weggebracht und hier in diesem Stadion ermordet wurde.
Aquí es donde se sentó Victor Jara antes de ser fusilado en este estadio.

Ghent in Belgien führt "Veggietag" ein.

Belgian city plans 'veggie' daysBy Chris Mason BBC News, Ghent

A poster advertising "Veggie Day" shows a sailor rowing an aubergine
The Belgian city of Ghent is about to become the first in the world to go vegetarian at least once a week. Starting this week there will be a regular weekly meatless day, in which civil servants and elected councillors will opt for vegetarian meals.
Ghent means to recognise the impact of livestock on the environment.
The UN says livestock is responsible for nearly one-fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions, hence Ghent's declaration of a weekly "veggie day".
Public officials and politicians will be the first to give up meat for a day.

Schoolchildren will follow suit with their own veggiedag in September.

Gita identifies the person with the True Human Nature by the Sanskrit name Sthitaprajna (Perfect Yogi). Sthita means stable, Prajna is mind, intellect, wisdom. Sthitaprajna is a person whose mind has stabilized. According to Gita, Sthitaprajna attains the Universal Wisdom and Eternal Peace by abandoning the illusory pain and sufferings. Lord Krishna’s ideal human being is Sthitaprajna who is not a religious person engaged in rituals. Whether he has faith in the Divine is immaterial as long as he is in a state of equilibrium while facing…
