Thanks so much! I've found the episode. Like you said it's season 1 episode 7 of Star Trek TNG.
Does anyone know what season/episode this Stargate clip is from?
Great! Thanks so much. :)
Thank you Will for this interesting article. It's very refreshing to read about Switzerland's animal/vegan situation from an outside perspective. As a grassroots vegan activist in this country I completely concur with your assessment. (A small factual error is that we indeed do have a vegan restaurant/hotel as pointed out by the previous commenter). Switzerland's agriculture certainly has many positive aspects, but unfortunately that's also what keeps most people from being receptive to a vegan world view. Especially when it comes to the topic of dairy. As you so aptly remarked, dairy products truly are sacrosanct to the Swiss people.
For anyone wanting to learn more about vegan issues in Switzerland vegan.ch is a great resource (grassroots and non-profit blog/podcast/link list/vegan cooking classes). Our content is in German, but we (the producers Rafi & Rafael) both speak English and can be reached at email@example.com
So far we've done two podcast episodes in English specifically for international listeners interested in the vegan situation in Switzerland. They can be found at: http://tinyurl.com/dckyns and http://tinyurl.com/33gokvl

"Because the fox is running for his dinner, and the rabbit is running for its life" was a statement used in WenDo, a western adaptation of eastern martial arts especially for women and their self-defence.
Women sometimes (erroneously!)think they are helpless and too weak to protect themselves. They easily identify with the rabbit, and in doing so, are encouraged to look for our talents and strengths.
This is getting off topic... but while I'm at it... another example of effective self-defence by a smaller, weaker being is the behavior of a kitten who does not want to be held. :-)
Season 3, Disc 4 - it's called Pretense.
Thanks Rafael for helping to spread the vegan message in Switzerland! Actually the "vegan" restaurant in question (Swiss Vegan Hotel) only serves dinner 2 days a week (Fri & Sat), and serves no lunches, so I don't consider it a proper vegan restaurant because of this. It's good, though, to see some progress, but letting go of dairy will be the challenge!
Let me know if you'd like to do another English podcast; Madeleine goes back & forth to Switzerland every summer, and I am visiting as well, besides the World Peace Diet tour here in North America.
Thanks Oram! I agree with you, and am looking forward to seeing you the next time I come to Switzerland -- will be in touch. The more we spread the vegan message, the easier it will be to find vegan foods in restaurants and stores. A few months ago when we were in Basel, Madeleine and I absolutely could NOT find any vegan chocolate bars -- not even in the health food stores! - They all had dairy in them. Only one didn't - and it was carob, not chocolate. The dairy industry really OWNS the Swiss, it seems! I'm sure it's getting better though as people learn more.
