Well known Animal Rights Activist, James Aspey as he kicks off his NZ tour in Christchurch next week starting with a Cube of Truth (Anonymous for the Voiceless) on Sunday 19th Novemberfollowed by a sold out public speech that same evening.

His you tube speech "This speech is your wake up call" went viral, now with over 200,000 hits and he runs a very active and successful You Tube channel.


He has overcome leukaemia, bulimia and drug addiction and now travels the world speaking to audiences about his experiences, veganism and how to be more active in animal rights.
