Philip Wollen – Australian Philantrophist, Vegan and Animal Rights Defender

By Sharda ten Hove on 29 January 2013

Philip Wollen is a former vice-president of Citibank. Following his departure from Citibank, Mr Wollen became vegan and is a prominent member of the Animal Rights Movement. He leads programs to rescue abused animals and funds several programs that promote animal welfare as well as human rights.

In this inspiring speech, Philip Wollen sheds a light upon the cruel conditions of so many animals. Whether or not you eat meat or consume dairy products, we all need to become more aware of what we are doing to our planet, our animals as well as ourselves. We are not trying to persuade you to become a vegetarian or vegan but at least to get to know the story behind what it is you consume. Because everyone has a story including the animals.
