I´ve had enough. I´m leaving this site. And before I continue I want to say that I have tears streaming down my face (I´m not joking, they´re real), cause I´m going through your profiles and you´re all wonderful people, real angels
Some questions that i have in order to improve our work as activists!
Is it possible to realy use a petition for a pledge to Boycott a country or company?
Or could we have Boycott tool? Boycotts are a great way to make a difference by punishing the bad guys!
How can i skip the target? I do not need the target for a boycott!
Now i have used the target to inform these captains of industry about this boycott but it would be great if we could also send them e mails...by using the same Boycott!
Send mails...just a few commands and the captains of industry can follow the wave of compassion out of Care2!
The news about the illegal countries from Ramons Share has done great but now its time
to combine all the efforts towards realy strong actions....
175 people have noted this yesterday now its time for action!
(Good job, Care2! While trolls romp through the site, unhampered, and you are too understaffed to take care of real member accessibility problems . . . you have chosen priorities -- and are busy suspending members trying to do YOUR job, and make a positive difference. Brilliant thinking!) Care2-Unfair-Suspension-Practices
TRUE ACTIVISTS FIGHT CAUSES! We believe that the care 2 community is able to do so much more! We want to combine the efforts of all activists!
CARE2 can be the strongest social/eco community in the world! With the help of the care2 management we will be able to activate the masses in care2!
But we must continue to improve care2! And make it much bigger and realy global!
Why cannot i find and contact all people who are interested in endangered species or animal welfare? The sytem allows this to care2 why not to the people and organisations who fight causes? It should be possible to invite all who care2 ANIMAL WELFARE: 73,835 Members Support this Cause ENDANGERED SPECIES: 21,309 Members Support this Cause ENVIRONMENT: 38,062 Members Support this Cause
As you can see i cannot find the 8.000.000 members here! The management can.....
8 million members making a difference.. Imagine the impact!!!
The members that realy make a difference should all be invited to this group of true activists! We will share our suggestions and ideas to improve the system! Please invite all your friends i hope to see many new faces here!
How many true activists will sign up? I hope 1% of all members! I hope that care 2 will understand how important this is.
We are talking about 20.000 people who once stated that they care about endangered species i did not manage to find more than 350 so far... that is what Daphne means with Apathy.....the care2 management told me and has written that they cannot do more.... bad for them us and all endangered species animals and humans who need our help!
We need the support to get petitions realy going, i receive one petition up to 120 times within two days!!!! The system recognizes each visitor and can tell: thank you you have signed this petition.... Dont allow people to spam petitions just use the Members Database and show all members only petitions that they have not yet signed! Petition R Us the largest petition Group in Care2 should be the place where you can find all the petitions!
The petitions are the reason why i am here! We fight causes! I am sure that many of you have important causes! Find out how many members care about your causes! And ask care2 how we can reach all people who care2!
I know that we can protect all endangered species! I know that we can stop the killing if the buying stops! I know that we can, and will have to reduce our impact! I know that we can help sick people better than the Pharma industry does! Just take a look at the cancer research research of my good friend Cassie! I know that we can free Schapelle Corby and many other innocent victims! I know that we can help Africa! I know that we can guarantee that all people on earth get clean water!
We need to combine efforts! And make sure that Care2 is realy about 8 million people making a differenc

Blog: The Price Animals Must Pay For Man's Ego
by Morgan Griffith
(2 comments | 0 discussions) — For many months now I have been noting news stories, signing petitions and participating in group discussions on the subject of man's abuse of animals. One thing I have noted that all these stories have in common. Animals suffer due to... more »
PeTA is suing PRIMARILY PRIMATES for a few reasons:
PeTA thinks the animals are a danger to the community. There has never been a complaint about this in the 30 years Primarily Primates Sanctuary has been there, until PeTA went knocking on doors looking for a complaint. They got TWO, but one dropped out. The second person has 4 lawyers, all supplied by PeTA. Nobody lives close to the Sanctuary.
This is PeTA's THIRD time for the lawsuit. The first two were dismissed.
PeTA forgets that THEY created the need for this Sanctuary by dropping off rescued animals they couldn't find a place for.
See all the other reasons for the lawsuit that WASTES PRECIOUS MONEY at:
Please help the dogs of "SOSCoky" - the Canile of Santa Maria di Castellabate, Campania, Italy - in signing our petition. The area of the Canile is placed at a former rubbish-ground without infrastructure. There is no electricity and water. Many of the dogs are sick - suffering of Leishmaniose, Ehrlichose or other diseases. Already five years ago the municipials have promised a new area for the Canile, but 'till now nothing has happened. It is time for keeping promises now!! Join our petition please! Thank you!!
We are in a small township at the outskirts of Athens, Greece.Close to Mount Parnitha a wild life preservation. For this we moved here from the beaches of Glyfada. For the green, the trees and the open space. Not only we had this idea, but so had a lot of Athenians over the last year. The trees are cut, the open places are over grown with buildings and Mount Parnitha burned in 2007. Red deer, foxes, hedgehogs and land turtles as wellas many birds have disappeared. But there is still this small area of vegetable fields, olive and wine groves.
It is spring. It is a light overcast cool morning. The snow, unusual to the costal region of Attica, has melted. Field flowers are blooming and so are the fragrant Almond trees.
I take my dog Chiara for a walk and decide - for a change - the fields below the street I live on. Arappi (gr. Black) a Greek Street dog under neighborhood protection I had neutered just 2 weeks ago is following us.The two are the best of friends.
So we walk along this dirt path, when Arappi goes up the embankment. He shrugs back as he smells something on the ground, advances and then backs off again.
I go up - weary of what I might find…….
He is young. His teeth gleam white in the daylight. His mouth is open, struggling for the last breath of air. Even now in death the chain is taught, bending his neck sickly ever so slight.
The thin chain has been fastened around his neck with wire too thick to be bent with bare hands - you need pliers for that. The chain then fastened to the woven strap or belt we use for tying loads on trucks. The strap higher than the dog around the tree. Just enough for it to lie finally in his last resting place. The tree stands in a small growth of trees, up on the embankment, in the fields below my road, where I live, in Agios Stefanos, by Athens in Greece.
Prior to this event, the black street dog Arappi had been missing twice for 2 to 3 days. He came back with the very same type of strap reeking of petrol tied around his neck and once evenwith a length of chain attached to it. He is a street wise dog though and escaped. Then he went missing for a whole week. He was locked into a big cage with a diesel oil tank.On the petrol soakedground his what little dry food he had was strewn in between the wire and metal scraps. No place to lay down flat. His water smelly green. The dog hears me aproach and whines. He scratches the wire cage, bites into it. I break him out. He is with us again.
We fear for him.
Recently at least 20 cats have been doused with petrol or a petrol based substance. They licked it and died miserably.
A dog has been poisoned in the neighbors' garden. He survived the actual poisoning only to die later of the health problems associated with poisons of the 3rd generation.
Somebody had their bunny rabbit stolen from their outside running pen.????
All this happened where I live - and nobody knows what can be done.The official Greek Welfare Society advised me to contact the media - "…… only if we get exposure we might be able to stop this guy …..". Nobody was interested. The Major's office (pro Stray!!)informed me that they had numerous calls of people missing their cats or dogs. The asked me:"What do you think we can do?" I went to the police, they told me to come back tomorrow and bring the pictures (how convenient) on a CD. I will do this tomorrow.
Today I am here - and I am rallying the neighbors. Some of them have dogs and as soon as I approach them they become defensive assuming immediately I am launching a complaint against them. Then they only tell me that they have their animal under control and the poor dog outside of their garden gate and which they feed is "……not ours".
It is Spring- the season of re-birth. Baby lambs are born to be slaughtered for Easter, Kittens are born only to end up in garbage dumpsters, puppies are playing and running around in this exciting new place they find themselves - still unaware they will never eat or drink again.
