Type: Memorial (for the deceased)
To Honor: Individual(s)
Location: , United States

I was not a fan of MJ- but I will remember him in good light.. this song is from his broken heart>

Earth Song, by Michael Jackson
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8muMo0fw_M, http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xetes_michael-jackson-earth-song_animals 

"I remember writing Earth Song when I was in Austria...and I was feeling so
much pain and so much suffering of the plight of the Planet Earth... I think nature is trying so hard to compensate for man's mismanagement of the Earth... This is my chance to pretty much let people hear the voice of the planet. And this is Earth Song."

Earth Song is Jackson's biggest hit in the UK, selling 1,038,821 copies. The single sold over three million copies worldwide.

What about sunrise
What about rain
What about all the things
That you said we were to gain.. .
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said was yours and mine...
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we've shed before
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying Earth the weeping shores?

What have we done to the world
Look what we've done
What about all the peace
That you pledge your only son...
What about flowering fields
Is there a time
What about all the dreams
That you said was yours and mine...
Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying Earth the weeping shores

I used to dream
I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I don't know where we are
Although I know we've drifted far

Hey, what about yesterday
(What about us)
What about the seas
(What about us)
The heavens are falling down
(What about us)
I can't even breathe
(What about us)
What about the bleeding Earth
(What about us)
Can't we feel its wounds
(What about us)
What about nature's worth
It's our planet's womb
(What about us)

What about animals
We've turned kingdoms to dust
What about elephants
Have we lost their trust
What about crying whales
We're ravaging the seas
What about forest trails
Burnt despite our pleas

What about the holy land
Torn apart by creed
What about the common man
Can't we set him free
What about children dying
Can't you hear them cry
Where did we go wrong
Someone tell me why
What about babies
What about the days
What about all their joy
What about the man
What about the crying man
What about Abraham
What about death again
Do we give a damn

On 1 July 2009, the Namibian seal cull of baby Cape fur seals will become the largest and cruelest seal hunt in the world. For the next 139 days seal clubbers in Namibia will beat to death 91,000 baby seals who are still suckling their mothers. These seal skin imports were banned in the US in 1972. Although I have managed to get the EU to ban Cape fur seal product imports in 2009, and met Namibian Prime Minister Nahas Angula in 2007, Namibia has vowed to go ahead with its baby seal cull.

The latest development, due to the EU Seal ban and world economic crisis, is that Namibian sealers could only find one seal fur buyer in 2008. This individual is Hatem Yavuz, based in Australia. He continues to purchase baby fur skins, which he exports to Turkey, a non-EU member, and he could be the sole reason why Namibia does not announce an end to its seal culling policy, as have Russia and South Africa.

I implore you to politely ask Hatem Yavuz to issue a public letter announcing he will no longer buy Namibian seal fur skins. Thank you very much.

Following a formal complaint filed by ANIMAL with the Child Protection Services, French-Mexican 11 year old bullfighter Michelito Lagravére was banned from performing at last night´s bullfight at Lisbon´s Campo Pequeno Bullring, in Portugal
 
The “bezerrada” (a bullfight with a calf of 1 to 2 years old, weighing around 250kgs) was scheduled to take place last night, at Lisbon´s Campo Pequeno Bullring, in Portugal, at 11:45 p.m. The so-called “star” of the bullfight was the French-Mexican 11 year old bullfighter Michelito Lagravére, whose participation in a series of bullfights in Portugal over this summer was making headlines and sadly exciting the Portuguese bullfighting lovers.
 
However, Portugal´s Child Protective Services stepped in, following a formal complaint filed by Portuguese animal protection organisation ANIMAL, which has denounced the situation to the Attorney General´s office, to the Authority for the Labour Conditions and to the Child Protective Services of Lisbon. In this complaint, ANIMAL highlighted the dangers for the child that this bullfight with a calve would pose and stressed out how this would infringe the existent labour legislation protecting children from child labour, and particularly protecting children who participate in cultural activities and spectacles from any possible dangers this can pose to them. ANIMAL also pointed out that, under the article 32nd of the UN Convention on the Rights of Children, of which Portugal is a signatory state, it is not lawful for a child to participate in a bullfight.
 
Yesterday, at 17:00, about 7 hours before the bullfight, the Lisbon Center Child Protective Service notified the bullfighting promoters that the participation of Michelito Lagravére in this bullfight was not authorised.
 
As other bullfights with this child-bullfighter are scheduled to take place in Portugal over the next weeks and months during the Summer, ANIMAL is now multiplying its efforts to prevent this from happening at any bullring of the country.
 
Last year, in France, the Attorney General´s office of two towns in the South of France, Fontvielle and Arles, also prohibited the young bullfighter of participating in bullfights in these towns, following complaints filed by the French anti-bullfighting organization Alliance Anti-Corrida.
 
In Portugal, bullfighting is experiencing the strongest opposition ever seen, with ANIMAL securing consecutive victories and gaining terrain in campaigning to abolish bullfighting in this Southern European country.
 
Last year, a Lisbon Court banned RTP, the state-owned TV station, from broadcasting a bullfight before 10:30 p.m. and without displaying a permanent sign indicating it as a violent spectacle, following an injunction brought by ANIMAL. The court has also deemed bullfighting as a cruel and violent spectacle unsuitable for children and susceptible of negatively affecting the moral and psychological development of children and teenagers. Also last year, big international companies, such as Ben & Jerry´s, KODAK, Melka and Carlsberg, ordered their Portuguese branches to step away from any commercial association that they had with bullfighting.
 
This year, following an intensive anti-bullfighting campaigning work carried by ANIMAL, the Mayor of the Northern capital of Viana do Castelo declared this city Portugal´s first anti-bullfighting city. Subsequently, the mayors of Braga, Cascais and Sintra have also took measures to not authorize bullfights in their towns. Through an intensive national and international campaign, ANIMAL also managed to stop the Regional Parliament of the Azores Islands from legalizing bullfights with Spanish-type &ldquoicadors”, which would add up to the extreme violence towards the bulls that Portuguese-type bullfights already involve.
 
For Miguel Moutinho, President of ANIMAL, “the participation of children in bullfights does not only constitute a violation of animal rights – it also constitutes a shocking violation of children´s rights. ANIMAL will do everything possible to have bullfighting banned once and for all and to, in the process of accomplishing that ethical goal, try to prevent children from being desensitized towards the suffering of animals and from being taught to, and praised for, torturing animals, as Michelito sadly does”.
 
ANIMAL can only carry on campaigning to abolish bullfighting and to forward animal protection in Portugal with your support – Please make as generous a donation as you can TODAY to help ANIMAL:

Killing Bulls in Arena is a Big Business in Spain
 

Matadors love to call their killing obsession a JOB. We had a chance to see why this obsession for killing is called a JOB, in the one episode of “Europe’s billionaires” on “Travel and Living Channel” when one of Europe’s riches people were presented-and among them Enrique Ponte – the Matador- from Spain.

The summery: Enrique Ponte (Matador / “ bull fighter ” )
50. 000 – 100. 000 Euros per “show” in Arena (per killed Bull )
4 billion Euros per year ( his yearly “salary” only from appearance in Arena )
Ponte besides his “love” for killing Bulls in Arena practice hunting (shooting bears, lions etc.); on his property, Ponte also posses wild Animals: Puma.
Enrique Ponte has his own ranch where he breeds Bulls for bull-fights; he is breeding them and selling them to Arena (10. 000 Euros per Bull ) where he kills them for fun.

In Spain more than 1 billion Euros is spent every year on Arena bull fights shows (that’s from tickets sold ) !

It’s obvious why this barbarous “show” is ongoing and can’t be banned- people like Enrique can pay for their “job” to exists, they lobby by paying for things (as an example: Activists and organizations route for banning of bullfights and pressuring authorities/Mayor/ of City, and people like Enrique can pay for what that City needs, they can act like donors and that’s why authorities are not against... ) .
Arenas are full in Spain, supposedly people love to see Bulls being killed while blood gushes from their body…- they call Bulls: Beasts..?
Matadors love to say: “we are staring in the eyes of the beast”
Herbivores do not eat humans.. Why is the Bull a beast?.. Bull is equipped by his body mass and his horns - to defend him self, not to attack a human for no reason.. But still Bull is called a beast!?
The BEASTS in that Arena are those observers- those who paid for that bloody ticket to watch the drama of a dying Bull… the show where man presents him self as a barbarian observed by his -hungry for blood- auditorium.
What a tragic exposal of mans deepest and darkest side is being presented as a jolly show and supported by the loud applause and cheers…

O what a tragedy for mankind.

BLOODY BULLFIGHT BUSTED IN LOS ANGELES
Humane Officer Finds Bulls Being Stabbed with Sharpened Nails

A Humane Officer with Animal Cruelty Investigations (ACI), interrupted a bull fight Saturday night at the Festa da Bola in Artesia, CA when he discovered the bull fighters were using long wooden sticks with several inch sharpened nails on the end to stab, torment and infuriate the bulls. The Humane Officer noticed the bulls were being stabbed when he saw blood and puncture wounds on the bull when the animal was being returned to the trailer from the ring. The bull had been repeatedly stabbed with up to 8 sticks. The Humane Officer went into center ring, held up his badge and put an end to the fight. Over 30 sticks with nails on the end were confiscated and the company operating the bull fight was informed that stabbing a bull is a violation of California's state animal cruelty laws.

Jane Garrison, spokesperson for Animal Cruelty Investigations, stated, " Animal Cruelty Investigations is an organization that enforces animal cruelty laws and stabbing a bull with sharpened nails is certainly a violation of the law. No animal should ever be made to suffer for so called entertainment. We hope the DA prosecutes this case to the fullest extent of the law and the City of Artesia makes this bull fight its last."

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

http://equanimal.com/ PAST EVENT:
Yesterday on Sunday, the 24th of May,
Equanimal and CAS-INTERNATIONAL, with the help of the numerous animal organizations participated in the event, as well as hundreds of volunteers. Volunteers come from all the over of the state to stage an antibullfighting demonstration without precedent.

More than 400 persons showed up on side of the stage. They wanted to express the suffering of more than 12.000 bulls that are murdered annually. They laid down in the soil, nudes, with banderillas on their backs and blood silverware. The volunteers demonstrated to accentuate the reality and to show society to stop with this injustice.

The antibullfighting movement grows stronger day by day in force and unity. Such milestones as the referendum of Paternal or the ILP of Catalunya, demonstrate that whenever one’s message reaches the community, one claims a victory for the animals. These animal voices cannot keep on being ignored very much longer.

This act was possible thanks to everyone that showed up in “Square of the Selling” to demand once again the Abolition of the tauromachy. To Equanimal and CAS-INTERNATIONAL we are grateful to you for all your support.

PLEASE FORWARD.
From: The Bright Eyes Society
25th may 2009

The horse Patanegra was gored by a desperate bull on Saturday. At the bullfighting ring people got "saddened", the afternoon lost its "magic" Why???????? What is the difference between a bull and a horse, both mammals, both with the same capacity to suffer pain and anguish (just like ours!) And why, if they love horses so much, do they put them in front of a bull? The truth is, the spilling of horses's guts is not part of the program so they do not like it but horses have always been victims of the bullfighting business. They cut their vocal chords so their cries of terror and pain will not be heard during the bullfight, did you know that?. ANY tourist that supports these dreadful events by attending them is as morally bankrupt as the mafia that organizes them.

And while bulls and horses keep suffering the torture of the Spanish bull rings the Málaga (Andalusia) politicians are spending 1.000.000 euros of their citizens money, during a world financial crisis in which Spain is one of the biggest losers no less, to update the bullfighting ring of that city...expecting to attract more tourists, no doubt. Not only unethical but amazing in its sheer stupidity. Please write to the Spanish embassy in your country
http://www.geocities.com/iaestespain/LC/embOfSpainEng.htm
to let them know what you think of their bullfighting "art ", the world is finally learning that "art" is a euphemism for "business" carried out by a mafia in which many politicians of the main parties have a vested interest one way or another.

PLEASE EU citizens, do vote on the June European elections and make sure the party you choose has animal protection at heart! Thank you.

Vote brings new law on animal experiments
one step closer
This week, Members of the European Parliament voted to update the 20-year old EU law on animal experiments (Directive 86/609).

The European Commission published a number of forward-thinking proposals, but sustained lobbying by pharmaceutical and other animal research industries has had a devastating impact. While many MEPs did their best to protect animals, it is particularly disappointing that the Parliament as a whole fell short.

The Parliament voted against restricting scientists' freedom to experiment on monkeys, even for experiments with no direct application to improving human health, and against a phase-out of 'F1' generation primates (off-spring of wild-caught primates).

Meerut / India / May 2009.

Sample letter :

Honourable Sir or Madam at Meerut Government, India,

I've come to the knowledge that a stray dog in your city has killed a child who was strolling with his mum, and that the Meerut citizens have decided to take justice into their own hands by killing all stray dogs in an extremely cruel way. We have witnessed truly horrifying images of extreme and intolerable cruelty, some of which we've attached to this email.

One of the reasons for which India has been valued and loved internationally is the wisdom and warmth of its inhabitants, who show a great deal of respect for animals.

We can understand that the inhabitants of Meerut feel alarmed about this tragedy where a child was attacked, and that urgent measures must be taken, but murdering dogs is not the solution, as this only breeds hatred and violence among citizens: you can see very clearly, in the pictures from Meerut, the fury and sadism used against these poor animals, with youths clearly enjoying watching the agony and suffering of dogs, and finding pleasure in violence, pain, blood and the suffering of others.

We know the awful sanitary conditions in illegal slaughterhouses make stray dogs develop their killer instinct, and turn them into vicious animals, while also being a source of disease, ill health, and animal suffering, and a danger to people. The most humane and effective solution to these kind of problems is a neutering and spaying programme to avoid uncontrolable birth rates. These measures are already being applied by the governments of many other countries.

I think these kind of events are totally unacceptable in today's society, so I'd like to appeal to your sensitivity and common sense and urge you to do everything in your power to prevent events such as these from occurring ever again.

Yours faithfully,
(Your name and contact )

Ovi konji - sem sto lose zive i jako mnogo rade, slabo ih hrane- ali na vrh svega treba dodati cinjenicu da svakodnevno moraju da se provlace kroz saobracaj (a svi znamo o kolikoj saobracajnoj guzvi govorim), svi im sviraju, nece da zastanu automobili - i prosto jurisaju na konja, seku mu putanju, izlecu pred njega, turiraju.. nekada cak i jure i preticu konja- kao da je automobil..
A konj najmanje zeli da bude tu gde jeste- i jos ga ljudi psuju i pljuju jer im smeta u saobracaju..

Italian police are hunting a pack of stray dogs which killed a boy aged 10 and mauled a 24-year-old woman in the Ragusa area of southern Sicily.
They caught about 30 strays after the boy was dragged off his bicycle and killed on Sunday but about 20 dogs are believed still to be running wild.
The priest at the boy's funeral accused society of turning animals into icons.
It is an offence to kill a dog in Italy and the country lacks properly funded pounds in which to collect strays.
Reports suggest the dogs had been neglected and starved by a man entrusted with caring for them. A suspect has been arrested.
Animal rights groups estimate there are up to half a million stray dogs, mainly in the south of the country, many of them abandoned by their owners and left to run wild.
Although local town councils are supposed to round up strays and put them in public kennels, the law is often ignored as public funds are not provided for building dog pounds, the BBC's David Willey reports from Rome.

Health officials in Sicily are to meet on Wednesday to decide how to cope with the killer dog emergency. Deep wounds / / / In the latest attack, the 24-year-old, a German tourist, was seriously injured while walking on a beach near Ragusa on Tuesday. "Her face was particularly disfigured," said Christian Ilardi, a rescue official who was on the helicopter that rushed the woman to Catania.
"Her life is in serious danger due to the wounds, which are very deep."
Local police killed two animals which tried to attack them during the day.
Some 7,000 mourners attended the funeral of Giuseppe Brafa, the boy killed on Sunday.   http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/7949181.stM
