Dear animal friends,

I posted 2214 sharings with petitions, letters, votes, news, video...

Till now a few members gave feedback, and I thank them profoundly.

I put much energy and time in these shares, more than you can imagine.
So I stop now.

I continue defending the animals, but not anymore on this manner.

If people want to receive the list of actions, they can give me their mail-address and I will send them my shares as I do with other activists.
Now that I won't use your mail-address for proper purposes and I won't abuse your confidence.

I wish you much succes and take care of you.

Chantal

It is with an intense sense of urgency
that the Universe cries out for a plea
of gentleness,and empathy for all living creatures.

The Prime Minister of the Faroes

Dear Madam,dear Sir,

 

I would ask you to view the following images. They depict the grisly – and as I understand – annual slaughter of pilot whales on the coast of the autonomous region of Dinamarca.

We in Europe get so upset about the massacre of dolphins the Japanese revel in each year – when under our very nose the same happens practically on our doorstep.

I once saw a documentary about the Faroers and the not-EU conforming slaughter (throat cut without prior stunning) of sheep, and residents of the community documented expressed their relief at not being part of the EU .. because that would mean they could no longer perform this particular type of slaughter legally – which, after all, they see as a tradition … naturally one, like so many traditions - and this whale massacre is no exception there – it is nothing the animals in question would miss if it were given up – at long last in the "enlightened" 21st century (which some apparently still confuse with the Middle Ages).


I remain committed to a boycott of Faeroe tourism until all whaling activity ceases in this North Sea Danish Protectorate. Plainly, the massacre of
forcibly trapped whales is cruel.

I cannot tour or otherwise support any society that condones senseless violence against animals.

I cannot stress strongly enough the absolute barbarity of this "hunt".

It's mere existence, that is, the fact that it is accepted and obviously permitted by yourself and your government, constitutes a very ugly smirch on the Faroers as a whole.

Needless to say really – this does not motivate me to ever visit the Faroers – I would not willingly invest into the next such show of low and wholly unacceptable Human behaviour towards ultimately defenseless animals.

It is disgusting in the extreme.

 I urge government officials to legally shield wildlife from all forms of abuse, including the slaughter of whales for sport.

 

Sincerely,

Gentile Signor Sindaco,

lo zoo di Napoli è un fallimento economico, morale, scientifico.
Lo zoo di Napoli è costato tanto. Agli animali innocenti in termini di condanna all’ergastolo, ai cittadini in termini di spazi negati, alle Amministrazioni pubbliche che in maniera diretta e indiretta hanno speso soldi pubblici per una struttura dannosa per l’etica, per l’educazione, per la conservazione delle specie animali.

Lo zoo di Napoli non è riuscito ad avere, in sette anni dall’entrata in vigore dalla legge italiana sugli zoo, la licenza del Ministero dell’Ambiente in attuazione di una direttiva europea.
Lo zoo di Napoli, basta visitarlo, è un insieme di tristezza e degrado tali che è un’onta per l’Amministrazione Comunale che speriamo anche in questo vorrà effettivamente rompere con il passato.
Eppure negli scorsi giorni abbiamo letto, anzi riletto dopo anni, le stesse dichiarazioni fatte nella precedente crisi della struttura nel 2003 e 2004: rilancio, riqualificazione, trasformazione in centro di recupero, fattoria didattica, luogo essenziale per la ricerca veterinaria, animali che stanno benissimo. Si tratta solo di tentativi di preservare interessi economici e di potere che fanno male agli animali e alla città. Quelli che, senza alcuna visita di tecnici indipendenti, dicono che “gli animali non si possono spostare”, volendoli tenere quindi come ostaggio per continuare a calpestare i loro diritti.

Le possibilità di conoscere finalmente davvero la natura non mancano. Le soluzioni per la sistemazione di animali e lavoratori ci sono. Milano e Torino negli anni passati hanno chiuso i loro zoo. Nessuno ne sente la mancanza, Napoli può e deve farlo. 
Gentile Signor Sindaco, c’è un Commissario Liquidatore per gli aspetti economici della struttura, Lei sia il liquidatore dei diritti negati agli animali.  Dica forte e chiaro che Napoli vuole cambiare pagina anche in questo e la Giunta lo dica con una sola voce.

Hanno già aderito: Niccolò Ammanniti (scrittore), Marco Berry (conduttore tv), Licia Colò (conduttrice tv), Marcello D’Orta (scrittore), Rita Dalla Chiesa (conduttrice tv), Kris (dj Radio 105), Vivianne Lamarque (scrittrice per bambini e giornalista Corriere della Sera), Cristina Nadotti (giornalista La Repubblica-blogger Animal Mouse), Giorgio Panariello (attore), Fulco Pratesi (ambientalista), Mario Tozzi (ricercatore CNR e conduttore tv), 99 Posse (gruppo musicale), Carla Rocchi – Presidente ENPA Ente Nazionale Protezione Animali, Gianluca Felicetti – Presidente LAV Lega Anti Vivisezione, Michela Brambilla – Presidente  Lega Italiana per la Difesa degli Animali, Laura Rossi – Presidente Lega nazionale per la difesa del Cane, Massimo Comparotto – Presidente OIPA Organizzazione Internazionale Protezione Animali.

Dear Mr. Mayor,
Zoo of Naples is an economic failure, moral, scientific.
The zoo in Naples has cost so much. Innocent animals in terms of life imprisonment, to citizens in terms of negative space, which the government directly and indirectly have spent public money for a structure harmful to the ethics, education for the conservation of animal species.
Naples Zoo is not able to get in seven years after the entry into force by the Italian law on the zoo, the license of the Ministry of Environment in the implementation of a European directive.
The zoo in Naples, just visit it, is a set of sadness and degradation such that it is a disgrace for the city administration that hopefully this will actually break with the past.
Yet in recent days we have read, reread even after years, the same statements made in the previous crisis of the structure in 2003 and 2004: revival, renewal, transformation into rehab, educational farm, essential place for veterinary research, animals that are well . These are just attempts to preserve economic interests and power that hurt animals and the city. Those who, without any independent technical visit, saying that "animals can not move", wishing to keep as a hostage and then to continue to trample their rights.
The very last chance to know the nature there. The solutions for the accommodation of animals and workers there are. Milan and Turin in the past have closed their zoo. No one misses, Naples can and should do so.
Dear Mr. Mayor, there is a liquidator for the economic aspects of the structure, she is the liquidator of the rights denied to animals. Say it loud and clear that Naples wants to turn the page in this and the council say it with one voice.

Please support this effort:

IDAHO COMMISSIONERS WILL SOON DECIDE THE LEG HOLD TRAP’S FUTURE USE. A SAMPLE LETTER WITH THEIR NAMES AND CONTACT INFORMATION IS BELOW. EMAILS MAY BE EASIEST, BUT TELEPHONE CALLS WOULD BE SUPER!

Following this sample letter are the names and email addresses of Idaho commissioners who will decide upon the leg hold trap’s use there. They need to know that you care about this issue and seek their negative votes. If you use the letter, feel free to modify it.

Dear Commissioner XXXX:

I write to voice strong opposition to Idaho’s leg hold trap use. This trap inflicts inescapable pain and suffering to any child, hiker, dog, wolf, cat or other creature whose foot lands upon it. Animals have suffered for as long as a week in its agonizing grip. The Humane Society of the United States reports that millions of non-target animals are killed or maimed by it annually (Animal Rights Federation). Moreover, because bolt cutters or specific trap release knowledge is required to remove the device, rendering aid to a trapped victim is almost impossible. I earnestly seek your “NO” vote on any decision regarding this trap’s use in your state. Please reply by email if you desire any additional information regarding my view. I thank you for your valued time and attention in this important matter.
