Tell LEGO to Cut Ties with Shell
"Cancel Barbaric NBC Sports Network Shark Hunters"
I think we might have offended someone. This morning I learned that our viral video calling on LEGO to break its lucrative partnership with oil giant Shell has been REMOVED from YouTube!
This video is the most-watched video in Greenpeace history. Today, corporate interests are trying to shut down our efforts to expose the LEGO-Shell partnership for what it really is.
But we won’t give up that easily. Click here to watch the video they don’t want you to see and sign the fast-growing petition asking LEGO to dump Shell.
Shell needs LEGO because everything else it does is so bad - from being a driving force in the climate crisis to planning to drill in the home of polar bears. They want to use the positive image of popular brands to masquerade as a semi-responsible company.
It looks like LEGO and its corporate pals are more offended by a video than by the idea of Shell’s plan to drill for Arctic oil. Despite the real risk of a terrible and unstoppable oil spill in icy, pristine waters, Shell is determined to plunder every last drop of oil it can.
Watch the video and add your name to the petition:
Just like it’s not OK for a tobacco company to market to children, an oil company has no place promoting its brand on kids’ toys. So that's why we’re asking LEGO to show the world - and our children - that an ethical company won't work with Shell.
LEGO said last week that it’s “determined to leave a positive impact on society and the planet”. So are we! That’s why we’re working together to protect our oceans, rainforests and the Arctic.
If LEGO cares about kids, it will dump Shell, and together we can make it happen. Watch the video and sign the petition: https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/legovideo2
PS. We love LEGO. But by partnering with Shell, LEGO has let itself down and put the Arctic in danger of risky oil drilling. The more people that join in the more pressure LEGO will feel: https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/legovideo2
Good Morning dear Christeen!
I am beginning to believe that most people on this doomed planet are depraved lunatics.
She is too disgusting to describe.
To much money , parents without empathy or conscience , a whole family without brains , and that all in a country that allow that kids and teens use weapons.
All ingredients to make a kid like Kendall

Stop the NC Possum Drop!
A "Possum Drop" takes place each New Year's Eve in Brasstown, North Carolina. A frightened possum is encased in a clear box, dangled above a crowd of rowdy revelers, and dropped for "entertainment."
Now, the NC legislature has rushed through and passed a bill that makes this animal cruelty legal specifically between the days of Dec. 26 and Jan. 2 in Clay County only.
Animal abusers should not get special legal privileges! Please sign the petition to tell the NC Wildlife Commission not to issue a permit that will allow this event to continue!

'Tell the BBC that by continuing to promote ivory they are behaving irresponsibly
So sorry Marina.
Loosing a beloved animal is so , so very painful and it always breaks a piece of your heart what they take with them forever.
I cannot comforting you Dear Marina , there is no comfort for such a loss.
I can only say that I know so well what you are going through.
My heart is with you Marina.
Dearest Marina, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved Blackie....if our animals die they always take a piece of our heart with them. There is such emptiness when they are suddenly gone and even if you have other dogs, they cannot ease the pain that is caused by the death of the one who went over the rainbowbridge. I wish you lots of strength dearest Marina in this sad time.
RIP sweet Blackie
I am so sorry to hear that Marina, I know what you are going through and believe me I feel for you. It is heartbreaking I know. A loss of a beloved pet affects me so much more than the loss of a human, I know that sounds terrible, but I dread to think of my life without my dogs and I know the day is drawing nearer when I have to take my beloved Nuka in for the last time. She is old now and also has cancer!
Sorry that I haven't been active on Care2 for a while Monika but I sadly lost my beloved and most beautiful dog Blackie two weeks ago, having to have him sadly euthanased I am finding life so so hard without him and I am struggling so much with the heart wrenching pain! He was simply everything to me and I feel so empty!!
I promise that I will catch up with all petitions as soon as I can.
Thank you Dearest Monika. Sending you and everyone much Love x

Signed - glad I saw this it reminded me that I have a new descripion 'hoggers'
A TV show is under investigation for deliberately endangering the well-being of a coyote during filming. Demand that the show receive the punishment it deserves.
There is no word in the dictionary to adequately describe these 'hoggers'. Perhaps if I call someone a 'hogger' in future it can be assumed that it is synonymous with a whole list of expletives that I wouldn't be allowed to print?

Signed - another bunch of crackpots who have nothing better to do than abuse animals.
A rodeo-like event in which participants must attempt to catch and restrain a pig in a certain allotment of time, pig wrestling is dangerous and unnecessarily stressful to the pigs involved. Pigs can be injured when they are wrestled down, and may be unable to breathe when their snouts are forced under the mud, not to mention the emotional stress and terror of the event. Demand a crack-down on these pointless events and protect pigs from undue stress and mistreatment.

Dear Rosemary thanks for your comment on the subject! I put Earthlings on "my video" at my profile page a while ago. It's heartbreaking but one of the best documentaries about the situation of animals nowadays . Agree with you that the zoo theme isn't what I think about zoos, but the other subjects on the video are well documented.
About posting in our group: we have no strict rules, any topic you chose for a comment or action is fine and if you decide to open a new one, its welcome, too!
Hello Rosemary. Thank you for your input. I agree we have done so much to retrict the freedom of our fellow creatures and particularly dogs. I have to smile at the thought of my ten cats being subserviant though!!!! They are in complete charge of the situation here and even the visitors have to bow to their superiority in prime position on the couches nearest to the fire!! Especially on a day like today when the wind is howling. Luckily all of our visitors to the Sanctuary are animal lovers!
not sure this was the right place to post my last post...please move it to a better place if necessary. there is one part of "earthlings" that discusses using animals for entertainment and i have thought about the inequality of our relationship with our fellow earthlings.
we have a rather awkward relationship with other animals. we have far off in the past made them somewhat subserviant to ourselves for our wn purposes. cats and dogs gave up their freedom to us. i love my cats and try to treat them with respect, but are they still not in a subservient position? i don't know that there is much that can be done to reverve mch of what we have done and are doing, but we need to try to give back freedom when it is possible. now we are in a position of having to protect wild animals by controlling them from ourselves.
the best we can do is to try to restore their freedom , protect their natural habitats, stop using them for our entertainment, comfort, etc, as much as possible.
try to watch "EARTHLINGS", http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/earthlings/, if you can. it is horrible! i swore, screamed, cried..but if you can watch even a part of it at a time, it tells it like it is. the only part i disagreed with was the part of many zoos in present day that are doing much to understand our fellow earthlings to give them a better chance of survival in a world that we have made difficult for them and they ar doing more to educate and to create better more natural habitats. breeding programs in zoos are helping some speies to survive. it is hard if not impossible to reverse a wrong that has been done...

“Outstanding International Motion Picture” category
The prestigious Image Awards by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) celebrates "the outstanding achievements and performances of people of color in the arts, as well as those individuals or groups who promote social justice through their creative endeavors."
Others up for awards this year in different categories include Beyoncé, John Legend, Halle Berry, Oprah Winfrey, Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Hudson, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Forest Whitaker.
It is a huge honor to be nominated for the award.
Lion Ark is a film about respect for people and animals. It is an empowering film that shows that people can make a difference and how animal protection is a vital part of the fabric of social justice.
In addition to Lion Ark the other five nominees in the Outstanding International Motion Picture category are: War Witch; Call Me Kuchu; La Playa D.C.; High Tech, Low Life.
Members of the NAACP have until February 14th to vote for the nominated movies for the Image Awards, with the award ceremony taking place on February 21st and 22nd. The glittering awards ceremony in Los Angeles has, in the past, been hosted by luminaries such as Denzel Washington, Diana Ross, Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Whitney Houston.
Find out where you can see Lion Ark:
URGENT APPEAL! The animals have been saved from Bolivia’s circuses, now help free the animals in Peru! Animal Defenders International is preparing to assist the government with enforcement of the law and will be rescuing the animals, just like in Lion Ark. Help bring the animals to sanctuary.
