Petition: Stop Animal Cruelty in Canada 8:19 PM
Sign Petition to Support Bill C-50 and Stop Animal Cruelty
Canada's current anti-cruelty laws for animals are totally inadequate, allowing those who neglect and abuse animals to repeat their crimes again and again with minimal consequences. For six years, Canada's government has stalled on the passage of tougher animal cruelty sentences. We need your help to make sure that this time the new anti-cruelty amendments proposed to the Criminal Code of Canada pass. (IFAW.org)

Subject: Gold-mining Co. wants to destroy Glaciers!
Message: We, the Undersigned, endorse the following petition:
Say “No” to the project “Pascua-Lama”.
Target: John McDonough, Vicepresident, Barrick
Sponsor: Gabriela Puig van Oosten
* Signatures: 62
* Goal: 5,000
* Deadline: Ongoing...
* Email this Petition
Say “No” to the project “Pascua-Lama”. A project of the transnational enterprise Barrick Gold, is a clear menace to some glaciers in a region of Los Andes. Some of the actions are move three glaciers in the frontier between Chile and Argentina, to extract 547 tons of gold.
This will poison whole eco-systems!
The Jewelers of America are putting pressure on gold-mining companies to use ecologically safer methods of extraction. Tiffany ran a full-page ad in the NY Times asking them to. No response from the big conglomerates so far! Go to I think it's GreenKarat for more info.
Please sign this petition! This is the beginning of a whole movement to rein in the destructive gold-mining business. Buy your gold jewelry second-hand; or, have old gold jewelry melted down and re-fashioned! Until the mining industry CLEANS UP ITS ACT! It takes an average of 3 tons of usually-toxic waste -- to make just one gold wedding ring!

"Protect Children from Sexual Predators!!!"
The war in Iraq began two years ago, on a promise of security -- and a web of deception. Now the mistruths have fallen away -- and we see a presidency, and American prestige, sunk in a quagmire.
The cost: almost 2,000 American lives lost. Over $300 billion spent. A growing tab for our children and grandchildren, in the form of the largest budget deficit in our country's history. And for the Iraqi people, a stable democracy -- and peace -- remain unfulfilled promises wrapped in vague politial posturings of 'staying the course'.
'Staying the course' causes nothing but death and destruction when there is a reckless, incompetent driver at the wheel. It's about time somebody took away the keys!!!

International Petition to Ban Uranium Weapons
http://www.bandepleteduranium.org/modules.php?name=ePetitions&op=more_info&ePetitionId=3Uranium weapons, often called 'depleted' uranium (DU) weapons, are manufactured from radioactive waste materials produced during the nuclear fuel chain and the production of nuclear weapons. They cause widespread and long lasting radioactive contamination of the environment. These weapon systems are radiologically and chemically toxic.
Many people - innocent civilians especially children, military veterans, industry workers - have illnesses and medical problems, which may be due to their exposure to 'depleted' uranium. In areas such as southern Iraq, where uranium munitions were used by the US and the UK, there have been reports of increases in cancers, leukemia and birth defects. At least 18 countries possess these weapons, the use of which is contrary to existing humanitarian law.The Fourth International Day of Action: 4th - 6th November 2005November 6th has been set by theUN as the International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict. ICBUW is therefore asking all groups and individuals to organize actions to ban uranium weapons. Just having a small-scale study meeting or doing a one-person petition on the street will contribute a lot to gathering momentum for the international campaign. So please join us! http://www.cadu.org.uk/action/index.htmWe, the people, need to let governments and the United Nations know that these weapons can have no part in a humane and caring world. Every signature counts!

http://akwildlife.org/takeaction/aerial-wolf-petition.htmlSentaor of Wyoming Wants Wolves Delisted so Murders can resume wholesale!
Senator Michael Enzi has recently said in a new article, "wolves have "decimated" the state's wildlife and harmed ranchers." http://www.casperstartribune.net/articles/2005/10/14/news/wyoming/5c8d0a56fe3f6c418725709a00578a47.txtAs a result, he is going to Gale Norton and wanting her to delist them.
We know this claim is ridiculous. Since Wolves rarely attack cattle, this is one reason. Another, ecosystems with Wolves have finally started to recover. Even studies in Yellowstone have proved this. This is nothing more than fear and lies being generated as an excuse to delist Wolves so more can be murdered.
What can you do?
1) First send an email to Enzi at http://enzi.senate.gov/email.htmThis is to oppose his decision to have Wolves delisted. Explain that Wolves are not decimating wildlife, and that Wolves haven't been decimating livestock and that there are peaceful means available to live with Wolves, rather than murdering them.
The proof is right here: http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.htm2) Then please contact Gale Norton and tell her the same. She doesn't need to delist Wolves in Wyoming, and she already has allowed more Wolves to get slaughtered in Idaho and Montana. Wolves do not need to be murdered for co-existence.

Protect Children from Sexual Predators!!!Write your Lawmakers Today, especially in Ohio!
Below is a sample of a letter you can copy and paste to send to your lawmakers to get laws changed to protect children from sexual predators.
(Ohio Residents your law makers need to hear from you. They are in session this month voting on the SB 17 Bill. Please write your lawmakers TODAY to get this bill passed!)
Dear Member of Congress:
I am a constituent who is very concerned about the sex offenders who live in my community. Recently, there have been many stories in the news about how the current sex offender registration and notification laws don't work, and need to be changed. I think it's a matter of life and death that you help your fellow lawmakers make this change to protect our children. I urge you to support legislation, now under consideration in the House of Representatives and the Senate, that would create a more comprehensive system for tracking these offenders, and improve the way information is released about these predators to our communities.
Today, there are more than 500,000 sex offenders who are supposed to be registered in the U.S.; however, it's believed that 100,000 of these offenders are 'lost' in the system. We must:
Close the loopholes between state programs, so sex offenders can't move from state to state and elude authorities.
Provide federal and state funding so law enforcement agencies have the resources to track these predators.
Make sure that information about sex offenders is released to all of our communities. Thank you for taking the time to read my views on this issue.
The time is now to tighten the tracking of sex offenders, and provide higher standards for notifying people like myself and my neighbors. I don't want one more person who's been convicted of sex crimes to be able to hide from our community and law enforcement, and prey upon our children.
If you need the email or snail mail address of your state lawmakers. visit my website at http://www.freewebs.com/mypainfulsmiles I have a banner that will allow you to put in your zip code and will give you your information.
Path to You: Patricia Hopson > Carol Bischoff
(Or visit http://www.congress.org/congressorg/home/ )
(When sending email, I've heard it is much more effective if we can start off w/ our own words, and end the email w/ them too, if possible. For example, I say/ask something about how the issue will affect our/their kids, what kind of future they will have.)MAKE YOUR ACTIONS COUNT MORE!!!
