Spotted at Rijnstraat – this sticker of animal sanctuary Stichting Melief! Started by two vegans at a location close to Rotterdam, they eventually moved to Germany (just over the border at Emmen) to be able to expand. They’re taking care of literally thousands of animals! Melief is open for visitors every Saturday afternoon and at the yearly open day, this year on August 27th.
Spotted at Bilderdijkstraat – support sticker for the Free Sven and Natasha campaign. Sven and Natasha are two animal rights activists from Amsterdam who are being prosecuted for involvement in the SHAC campaign, an animal rights campaign set up to close down notorious animal laboratory Huntingdon Life Sciences in the UK. Sven and Natasha are currently awaiting trial in England.

New – vegan frozen pizza at Ekoplaza! Pizza pesto with vegan cheese and cherry tomato. 😍 First time a pizza like this is readily available in stores in Amsterdam, yay!
This liquorice is just GREAT! Autodrop Pittige Patsers Peper, slightly hot. 🔥 The sour and the salty variant are also vegan (though I didn’t find the salty one anywhere yet).
They sell it at Albert Heijn but not at all of them. Finally found it at Albert Heijn Jan Evertsenstraat. However it said they’re going to take it out of their assortment so hurry up! 🙂

Producer of plant-based dairy products Alpro recently introduced another new product – vegan quark! Although officially called ‘plant-based alternative to quark’ in order not to get sued by evil dairy corporations. They named it Alpro Go On and it’s based on soy. Ideal for yummy desserts or kwarktaart!
In Amsterdam find it at Albert Heijn and Jumbo supermarkets.

Spotted at Nassauplein, Amsterdam West. Poster of Marianne Thieme, for the general election next week. She is parliamentary leader of the Dutch Party for the Animals (‘Partij voor de Dieren’ in Dutch) and also vegan.
