Vegetarian Ideal


Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth
as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.

Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. - Howard Zinn

Affirmation of life is the spiritual act by which man ceases to live thoughtlessly and begins to devote himself to his life
with reverence in order to give it true value.

Spain: Els Enfarinats Festival Celebrated With Flour Fight In Ibi 


A reveler takes part in the battle of 'Enfarinats', a flour fight in celebration of the Els Enfarinats festival in Spain.
Citizens of Ibi annually celebrate the festival with a battle using flour, eggs and firecrackers.
The battle takes place between two groups, one being a group of married men called 'Els Enfarinats' who take control of the village for one day pronouncing a number of ridiculous laws and fining the citizens that infringe them.
Their opponents are a group called 'La Oposicio' who try to restore order. At the end of the day the money collected from the fines is donated to charitable causes in the village.
The festival has been celebrated since 1981 after the town of Ibi recovered the tradition but the origins remain unknown.
