It’s official: December is about to begin, and it’s cold in Germany (even the temperature is low now … 😉 ) So we’ve decided you need something to warm you up – like hoodies and hooded jackets. Beginning from Friday, 1st until Sunday, 3rd, we’ll offer you 10 % discount on hoodies, jackets and basic shirts!
You should have a special look on the new lined hooded Freedom-jackets, or the stuff we put into our shop a few weeks ago!
Give the cold a snowball’s chance in hell!
When ordering please note that most members of the ROC collective won’t work after December 22nd. That means, we most certainly will process your orders a bit slowlier until January 3rd.
And please note that we’ll take inventory on January 2nd, so we won’t answer mails or calls.
Now the order deadlines … Every year sending letters and packages in December is a hassle (like all of this Christmas thing). It’ll be a lot work work to send all your orders, and the same is true for the package deliverers, who have to carry more and more packages each year. In the following you’ll find the deadlines based upon the dates given by DHL. Attention: DHL has many new employees in December, so it is even more probable that something goes wrong or your order might come late. The earlier you order and pay, the better. We just can’t guarantee that your order arrives in time when you order at the last minute (sorry!).
Note: It doesn’t matter when you place(d) your order – much more important is the day of payment receipt. When we receive your money differs from bank to bank. If you want to be absolutely sure we recommend paying by PayPal.
Dec 22nd in the morning
Germany’s neighbouring countries
The rest of Europe
December 10th (for EU-countries: 12th)
The rest of the world
December 1st. We urgently recommend payment via PayPal.
The best way to have no stress is: don’t take part in the Christmas-game. Enjoy your life while everyone’s bustling about …
It’s getting cold outside and we’ve started to drink more and more hot tea, coffee and cacao. So we thought you might feel the same way – and if you don’t have a mug for yummy hot beverages you might like this offer: 10 % off all the mugs in our shop!
Only until November 30th!
Last September some of your collectivist@s attended the International Animal Rights Conference in Luxembourg. It was great to meet some of you there, discuss and get to know new people. And of course, we’ve listened to some speeches. 30 of about 50 speeches are available online – just have a look at the youtube-channel “Vegankanal”. By the way: of course we don’t agree on everything stated in some speeches – it’s a conference with many different people from different perspectives. But isn’t that the interesting part of a conference?
But of course we don’t want to bother you with this stuff here – so we’ve looked for videos of the speeches we liked a lot – and we found these three:
Facts for Fish-Eaters: What You Didn’t Know About Fish*es And Sealife – Lisa Kemmerer
Vegan Organic Food Production: How to Go Beyond Animal Agriculture – Daniel Mettke
Overlapping Oppressions: Sexism, Classism, Racism And More – Lisa Kemmerer
35 years of the Animal Liberation Front Supporters Group
Animal Liberation Front Supporters Group and Animal Rights Prisoner Support turn 35 this year. Read everything about their history in this new booklet.
Not that yummy in combination: Vegan butterscotch chews and descaler
Vegan butterscotch chews are quite popular in the scene in Germany and finally available through our little shop. For some of us this delicious vegan candy brings back childhood memories of sticky teeth and guilty pleasure.
Our new descaler by Vio.Me (occupied factory in Thessaloniki, Greece) can’t be used for dental hygiene but to clean everything else around your bathroom. As always vegan and free from animal testing.
For the next two weeks you can help us clear our shelves! We still have plenty of flip flops and summer shoes from Ethletic in our warehouse and we’d like to have them on your feet instead of standing on our shelves.
Maybe you’ve already discovered the blog Black Vegans Rock? It was started by Aph Ko, who has now written the book Aphro-Ism together with her sister Syl Ko. In this book you’ll find a lively, asccessible and provocative collection of essays on Pop Culture, Feminism, and Black Veganism. The two sisters provide new theoretical frameworks on race, advocacy for nonhuman animals, and feminism. Using popular culture as a point of reference for their critiques, they engage in groundbreaking analysis of the compartmentalized nature of contemporary social movements, present new ways of understanding interconnected oppressions, and offer conceptual ways of moving forward expressive of Afrofuturism and black veganism.
Food for bellies
We’ve also added some stuff to our food range which might comfort your bellies. First of all, there are two new spreads by Sieben Linden Feinkost: Rocket Mustard Chili and Spicy Parsnip. Yummy!
And second of all, there is something which might seem a bit strange to some of you: Soymilk Powder. But if you’ve ever travelled with your backpack or with your bike you might have an idea of what we’re talking about. It’s so annoying to carry a liter bottle of soymilk if you can have 100 g of this white powder instead!
