Petitions with Proven Success 

coupled with a grand pressure effort

The claim of "petitions dont work"  AGAIN??? Makes ya wonder what the motive is in saying that... "like ok nobody sign any more petition, ok!! That way no one can petition against me"

Feel free to cross post everywhere:

Here are some examples of successful petition/campaigns. Im just copying it from an email I sent to someone who said they were useless.

I can give you several examples which were successful in the past. One of the most prominant is the Hawthorn Elephants case.

Another is the recent adoption of military dog Rex by Sgt. Jamie

Another would be the prosecution of animal abuser Brandon Chandler:
Petition VIctory! Brandon Chandler is in jail!!  
and yet another would be the confiscation of several polar bears in a Peurto Rico Circus by the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
And yet another would be the request to JCREW to cease selling fur which they did November of 2005.

And one more as an example: (This one is copied from Dorothy Keelers post)

The Denali Wolf Buffer Zone petition
The Alaska Game Board was just a week away from deciding on whether to create a buffer zone around Denali National Park to protect the park wolves that wandered outside of the park's boundaries. Activist Dorothy Keeler jumped into motion and established a petition on Within a week she had collected nearly 1,000 signatures. She delivered the stack of petition signatures to the Game Board, helping to convince them to create the buffer zone. Today, the wolves are protected by the buffer zone, thanks in part to the efforts of Dorothy and all the people who signed the petition!


For each of these successes had an online petition!
