Hey to everyone

 6:16 PM

hello all, are you as tired as I am about laws in certain states, how they are ignored, weak, not enforced anywhere or too many loopholes everywhere, me too. I am so fed up with Missouri crap, I am jumping off the band wagon and taking matters into my own hands. Join me and sign this petition, animals deserve better.

Stop Research on Chimps
10 years ago
Release and Restitution for Chimpanzees in U.S. Laboratories

Bill Introduced to End Invasive Research on Chimpanzees!

 

 



Our promise to all the chimpanzees we know - that we will help all those who are still waiting in laboratories -
will be fulfilled with passage of the Great Ape Protection Act.



Dear Friends,

I am writing to announce very good news:

The Great Ape Protection Act was introduced today by U.S. Representatives Edolphus Towns (D-NY), David Reichert (R-WA), Jim Langevin (D-RI), and Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD.) With strong bi-partisan leadership, the bill seeks to end invasive biomedical research and testing on all great apes in U.S. laboratories and to release all federally owned great apes into permanent sanctuary.

Project R&R is working diligently with HSUS and other organizations and individuals to secure a precedent setting number of co-sponsors and a groundswell of public support for this bill, which offers the promise of protection from research to all chimpanzees now languishing in laboratories, many for more than 40 years.

Sincere thanks to all of you for your ongoing support. And thank you for remembering as we continue to ask for your help as we work toward our legislative goals.

PLEASE contact your federal legislators and urge them to join Rep. Towns, Reichert, Langevin, and Bartlett by signing onto the Great Ape Protection Act as a co-sponsor. 

By taking action and asking your family and friends to do so as well, we will build the support essential to pass the Great Ape Protection Act!
 
Sincerely,

Theodora Capaldo, EdD
President & Executive Director
NEAVS/Project R&R 

 
  The Great Ape Protection Act

  Prohibits:

> Invasive research on great apes
> Federal funding of such research
   both within and outside of the U.S.
> Transport of great apes for such research
> Federal breeding of great apes for such research

  Requires:

> Permanent retirement of
   all federally-owned great apes

You can help stop the clock on species extinction by adding your voice now!Dear Tammy,

Species like the tiger - one of the most spectacular animals on earth - are disappearing at an alarming rate.

It’s true. Today less than 2,500 tigers roam the earth's wilds with no more than 250 in any one population. 

Their decline is spine-chilling. These majestic animals are dissected for use as medicinal remedies … their habitats are swallowed up for farming and housing as populations in Asia increase… and hundreds of tigers are killed with their valuable coats sold in the black market.

And tigers aren't the only ones disappearing. Another species is pushed towards extinction every 20 minutes. Extinctions have not happened so fast since the dinosaurs were killed by the collision of an enormous asteroid with our planet 65,000,000 years ago.

Tammy, you have the power to stop the extinction clock. These creatures are counting on you to give voice to life on Earth, and slow down these astronomical rates of extinction. There are two easy ways you can take action right now.

  1. Sign the petition and help us reach our goal of 20,000 people (1,000 signers for every minute of the extinction clock) to send a powerful message to influential leaders at the World Conservation Conference in Barcelona.
  2. Donate a Buck-a-Minute ($1 for every minute of the extinction clock - that's just $20) and help me protect critical habitats worldwide, curb climate change, and build conservation capacity to respond to the extinction crisis.

Your caring and generous $20 donation not only helps assure that tigers are here on our planet for good, but that all species have a better chance of survival - even humanity ourselves. 

There are a lot of ways you could spend $20 - but none as meaningful as being part of the change that helps save splendid animals like the tiger. Please don't wait another minute. Help us reach our goal of $20,000 and 20,000 names today!

Thank you so much for your support,

Group History TAKE ACTION HELP THE CHEETAHS Thursday, 8:35 AM

You can help get the hunting of cheetahs banned before they are gone forever. They are unable to speak to us in a way we understand, they cannot stand up for themselves nor can they help each other like we can help them. You can help, even if it might seem like it will never make a difference for them, by signing the petition to get it banned. Its free, its quick but it really could help. You can also email me a letter that I will include when I send the petition off, it can be any length. This could also make a difference. The more signatures and the more letters I gather the more impact we can have.



They can't run forever, without our help. Help them before its too late.

human rights firstDefender AlertThe New Name of Lawyers Committee for Human Rights

Protect Peaceful Protesters in Colombia

 

Ivan Cepeda is one of Colombia's most prominent human rights activists and the recipient of Human Rights First's Roger Baldwin Medal of Liberty in 2007. Many of you took action last year to demand that the false criminal charges against him be dropped.

 

On February 4, there were worldwide protests against Colombian guerrillas (FARC). Now Cepeda and others are organizing similar peaceful marches on March 6 against human rights violations by another major party to the conflict in Colombia, paramilitary groups.

 

Despite wholehearted support for the anti-FARC protests, the Colombian government has opposed the anti-paramilitary protest. More alarmingly, a Presidential adviser stated on national radio that the anti-paramilitary protest organizers, including Cepeda, were guerilla terrorists. After these comments, Cepeda and other human rights defenders have received death threats from paramilitaries.

 

Please tell the Colombian government that it is unacceptable to endanger the lives of human rights activists by smearing them as guerillas. Demand that the Colombian President correct his adviser's statement and recognize that everyone has the right to participate in the March 6 protests.

Dear Tammy,

Right Whale Crossing

Sign the Petition

February 20th is an anniversary we do not look forward to celebrating. That day marks one full year that the Bush administration has stalled ship strike protections for endangered North Atlantic right whales—a year in which two more North Atlantic right whales were struck, out of a population that totals only about 350. How many more whales need to be injured and killed from ship strikes before the Bush administration will take action to protect them? Let the President’s Office of Management and Budget hear your voice on behalf of whales.

Please tell the Bush administration to release the rule that slows down ships and saves endangered whales.

Ship strikes are the number one cause of death and serious injury to endangered whales, but rather than demanding responsible business practices from shipping companies, the government has stalled rulemaking that would force ships to slow down to protect critically endangered whales. A few influential shipping industry interests have the resources to be heard loud and clear by the Bush administration, while the administration continues to ignore clear scientific evidence showing that slower speeds would save whales. The Bush administration needs to hear your voice on behalf of whales.

Please tell the Bush administration to release the rule that slows down ships and saves endangered whales.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Vicki Cornish

Betreff: Shocking News: Irish MEP Supports Canada's Seal Slaughter


Dear ARAN Members,

We can't believe it either, but yes it's true! At a time when the world is
closing in on Canada's gruesome slaughter of seal pups and when the EU are
at a critical stage on determining whether a ban on Canadian seal products
should come into place or not we hear some bad news for the seals.

Irish MEP 'Sean O Neachtain' has been part of a delegation to the European
parliament to promote Canada's cruel seal hunt. He visited the parliament
with fisheries and governmental delegates from Canada, the very ones who
promote lies to the public and the media in order to reverse growing
opposition to the hunt in Europe. You can read more about the issue here

http://www.thewesternstar.com/index.cfm?sid=107668&sc=506&comments=submit

and we have as of this morning confirmed it's accurate.

URGENT - TAKE ACTION:

Please, email immediately your views on Canada's seal hunt and let Irish MEP
'Sean O Neachtain' know how you feel about Canada's merciless and barbaric
seal slaughter

email him at: sean.oneachtain@europarl.europa.eu

Thank you for being a true voice for animals and supporting ARAN's work,
stay tuned for details of ARAN's annual Canadian seal protest this coming
March!

Thank you,

Hi Tammy,

It's true! If you are a multi-national oil company, that is. A week ago today, the Bush administration auctioned off 30 million acres of Alaska wilderness to oil and gas companies, who will now be able to get their hands on the regions estimated 15 billion barrels of oil. The going price of our land? $86.67 an acre - a little over 17 cents a barrel.

Oh, and guess what else? These 30 million acres are home to half the world's remaining polar bears.

It would be a lot harder for oil companies to wreak havoc on this wild landscape if the polar bear were protected under the Endangered Species Act - but, par for the course, the Bush administration has been dragging its heels on awarding polar bears this protected designation, missing deadline after deadline.

Will you join me in calling on Congress to stand up to the Bush administration - and demand a stop any new oil drilling in polar bear habitat?

http://www.environmental-action.org/enviroaction.asp?id=2531&id4=ES

For over two years now, environmentalists (like yours truly) have been working to protect the polar bear under the Endangered Species Act - but the Fish and Wildlife Service keeps delaying a decision. We couldn't figure out why, and then a certain 30 million acre tract of polar bear habitat hits the auction block - an area of land that would never be opened if the bear were protected.

We can't let 2008 will go down in history as the year the Bushies took every last thing they could get their hands on. Please take a minute right now, email your members of Congress, and ask them to stop any oil and gas leases in polar bear habitat.

http://www.environmental-action.org/enviroaction.asp?id=2531&id4=ES

And then forward this message along to friends and family, and ask them to take part in the effort too.



Sincerely,

Dan Stafford

Stop The Mauritius Monkey Smugglers
10 years ago
What You Can Do To Help
Don't holiday in Mauritius until they stop exporting primates to laboratories and encourage everyone you know to do the same. Mauritius' main industry is tourism, exporting monkeys is just a lucrative sideline, so hit them where it hurts and don't support their tourist industry.

Don't buy any produce from Mauritius, these will mainly be sugar, sugar derivatives, tea, tobacco and exotic fruits, vegetables and flowers. They have recently diversified into textiles and many of the clothes produced for TopShop, (a UK clothes chain), are made in Mauritius at slave labour rates!

You could also contact any local travel agents you know of who offer holidays to Mauritius and request that they stop supporting the Mauritian Tourist Industry until Mauritius stops exporting animals to laboratories. You can be sure they'll have no idea of the horrors inflicted on monkeys in laboratories and will certainly be shocked to realise they are unwittingly supporting it!

Finally, Please
email the Prime Minister of Mauritius informing him of your intention to boycott all produce from Mauritius, and to expose their vile trade in primates by every means available to you, until they stop sending monkeys to their deaths in laboratories!

SAMPLE LETTER

To:- primeminister@mail.gov.mu


Dear Sir,

I am writing to you today because Mauritius is one of the largest exporters of primates for vivisection laboratories in the world. I am particularly appalled by your support for the trade in primates which have been wild caught because inside investigations have shown that these animals suffer horrendously when captured, and many die en route to countries in North America and Europe, before even arriving in a laboratory.

The primates which you export are subjected to sickening and pointless experiments which any civilised person would clearly abhor. With this in mind I call upon your country to end this evil trade and focus on your primary economic concerns of tourism and sugar production.

To date four Mauritian companies have been granted licenses to catch and export primates and until these licences are revoked I shall be boycotting Mauritius, both as a tourist and refusing to buy all products produced there. I therefore call upon you to enforce a complete revocation of all the licenses granted to export primates and to guarantee not to license or otherwise permit the trade to take place in the future.

Should I fail to receive such a guarantee I will support an international boycott against the Mauritian tourist and sugar industries, as well as supporting any protests at my local Mauritian Embassy. I will also encourage all my friends and associates to do the same and I will also make every effort to expose the vile trade you are involved with to the wider public of my nation in the hope that they too will join a boycott of your nation.

I hope that you will understand the strength of feeling associated with this issue and will desist this cruel and scientifically pointless trade immediately.

Yours sincerely

Sad news for all who tried to help save Tusker, the elephant. I received this message a little earlier today:

ZIMBABWE CONSERVATION TASK FORCE

6th January 2007

FAREWELL TO TUSKER

It is with deep regret and sadness that we announce that
Tusker/Dustbin was shot at around 11:30 this morning.

We received well over 4000 signatures from people all over the world
in a desperate plea for his life to be spared. The shooting was
scheduled for Monday, the 7th January so it came as a great shock to
hear that he was shot today.

Tusker's life has been on the line for some time now but the New
Year's party that was held at Charara this year was the straw that
broke the camel's back. We have had reports of drugs and alcohol
being abused at the party by some of the youngsters who attended. It
has been confirmed that they were pulling hairs out of Tusker's tail
and slapping him on the rump and running away laughing. They were
driving around the camp at high speeds, flashing headlights in
Tusker's eyes and hooting at him and we have also had reports of
fireworks and beer bottles being thrown at him. Despite all this
senseless abuse, we have had no reports of Tusker hurting anyone
which is testament to his basic good nature.

His crime, which lead to his death penalty is that he damaged some
cars in his search for food. It is not clear how many cars were
damaged. We have had reports that the number was between 2 and 7.

The authorities will probably argue that they have a responsibility
to protect the humans and that it would only have been a matter of
time before somebody was killed by Tusker. Our argument is that a
party of this magnitude, which is attended every year by thousands of
youngsters should not be held in a National Park. This is why it is
called a "game reserve" and not a "people reserve".  There is a sign
near the entrance of Charara camp that states "No loud music after
9pm" and "no fireworks". The proprietors of Charara camp hire the
biggest music system in Zimbabwe and the music is so loud, it can be
heard from 2 km away. Where were the organizers of the party when the
youngsters started throwing fireworks at Tusker? How do people bring
their children up so that they behave in such a despicable manner?

We would like thank all you wonderful people, from the bottom of our
hearts for trying to help us to save Tusker. We had no idea he was
loved so much by so many people all over the world. Zimbabwe, and
indeed the world has suffered a great loss today.

Goodbye my big friend!

Best wishes

Time is running out for Alaska's polar bears. According to government scientists, these magnificent animals could be extinct in less than 50 years - unless we act now to protect them and the Arctic ocean habitat they depend on for their survival

    Category: Animal Rights

    Petition:
    THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS ACT, 1960 SECTION 11 PARTLY & SECTION 12 ARE THE COGNIZABLE OFFENCES, THE PUNISHMENT UNDER SECTION 11 IS VERY MINOR. MAXIMUM RULES ARE MADE BY THE GOVT. OF INDIA UNDER SECTION 38 OF THIS ACT WHICH IS NOT COVERED UNDER COGNIZABLE OFFENCES & PUNISHMENTS FOR ITS VIOLATION IS NOT SUFFICIENT.

    THERE ARE SO MANY RULES MADE OUT BY THE CENTRAL GOVT. UNDER SECTION 38 BUT TILL DATE NOT EFFECTIVELY IMPLEMENTED IN THE COUNTRY. UNDER SECTION 12 & 29 ANIMAL CAN BE FORFITTED TO THE GOVT. & THIS IS AN MENDATORY PROVISION BUT NOT EFFECTIVE. THERE ARE NO PROPERLY SET UP INFIRMARIES UNDER SECTION 35 WHERE ANIMAL CAN BE KEPT DURING COURT TRIALS.

    ADLF Animal Bill of Rights (U.S.)

    Act Now | Animal Bill of Rights

    The struggle to end cruelty to animals is not an easy one. But there is something easy you can do right now to make a difference in the lives of abused animals. It's as quick and simple as typing in your name.

    Through the Animal Bill of Rights, we are working to show Congress a groundswell of support for legislation that protects animals and recognizes their rights. Ultimately, we hope the petition will be a bill. In the meantime, the thousands of signatures on this petition send a clear message to our legislators that Americans strongly support legal protection for animals. When animal-related legislation is proposed, Congress will remember the huge number of signatures on the Animal Bill of Rights. With that in mind, they will cast a vote for the animals.
