On April 22, UmAy Instagram hosted Zulal Kalkandelen, a well-known journalist and animal-rights activist. The online talk was moderated by Gunes Deren, our UmAy volunteer from Istanbul. Kalkandelen’s dedication to the ecological movement, her provocative statements, anti-capitalist stance, and strong justification of a vegan life style were worth noting. As a symbolic gift of gratitude for her time and work, we planted ten trees through TEMA Foundation on behalf of Ms Kalkandelen. Let there me more respect and love for the non-human species whom we share this planet.

Happy Earth Day!
