START A PETITION 25,136,189 members: the world's largest community for good
Mar 28, 2010
Focus: Animal Welfare
Action Request: Protest
Location: Ohio, United States

I got this from my friend Eva!

NB!!  This action is for OHIANS ONLY - so if you aren't from Ohio pls pass it on

Hello dear Eva.

250,000 chickens recently died in a fire. How did that happen? Does anyone really care?

I'm asking for your help in passing the word about this VERY important citizen's ballot. Only Ohio residents may sign for the proposal, but if this gets passed around enough then it's bound to get into the hands of some concerned Ohio residents who will be able to attend a signing event nearby.

Ohio takes the top spot (in the USA) with the most abusive egg laying facilities, and we have plenty of disgusting factory farms as well. This simply MUST stop! People's eyes need to be opened about these facts.

(Sorry that my Care2 LINKS option isn't working here...)  Press release (about the 250,000 hens in fire) here:


Main info and event listings here:

Please pass the word. It would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks for all you do on behalf of animals.  Big B-I-G hugs to you!

 The story of the Protestant "settlements" in Ireland provides a ghostly narrative of those modern-day "settlements" in the West Bank, where the Israelis insist on fighting the world's last colonial war with the assistance of that great anti-colonial nation known as the United States.

Hi and good morning dear friends. My friend Latifa R. needs our help with her petition to stop abuse of elderly people. I would appreciate it if you would take a moment and sign. Thank you for making a difference with our elderly loved ones, friends, neighbors. Hugs of friendship, Christine

Please Sign my Petition to stop Elder and Guardianship System Abuse !!!

I got this in my NM from Kelli and I am making this share as a means to post it further.  I volunteered in an old age home in my town and I can totally relate to this petition.  I used to go and feed the people who were unable of feeding themselves at breakfast time.  I did not sign it as I believe that US petitions are valid only if US citizens sign them.  Of course, I would be glad to sign if it could be useful!

Thanks, Jessie

Name: Eleanor B
Type: Tribute (for the living)
To Honor: Individual(s)
Location: Wishaw, United Kingdom

This is going to be, in all senses, short and sweet!

I have to thank care2 for meeting a person I have come to love and know pretty well.  Eleanor is another sister to me and I know that I am the sister she never had. But who is Eleanor?

Simply the most caring, compassionate and fair person I have ever met. A mother who adores her children and would do anything for them.  Rejoices or cries for her cats - all 8 of them - actually since I met them, we cry together if anything happens to one of them. All either from shelters but, I think mainly off the streets. Great fun to be with and not a bad bone in her body. Such a sense of humour.

So this is my tribute to Eleanor - one of care2's best - but to me a sister in every way.  I love you Eleanor Boyd!

She is going to be so embarrassed by this public tribute but she also knows I mean every word written here!

You can see us together in Scotland last summer here:

Made a silly spelling mistake in the first version - terrible for an English teacher!

Please will everyone take note that this ALERT is, according to a HOAX and first circulated in 2006 - so do not forward this message.  I think I have received it at various times at least 4 times.  When in doubt, since I understand how this kind of alert is very emotional, go to snopes mentioned above and check.  The bastards that initiate these things know that this immediately grabs at your heart strings. This is the snopes page where you can read about it:

Spinning The IAEA Report on Iran's Nuclear Program

US corporate media put slant on report despite IAEA finding no proof of continued nuclear arms program

By Pepe Escobar

A new International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report criticizing Iran’s nuclear program was leaked via the Internet. Although slated to be made public in early June, US corporate media seized the opportunity to put a spin on the report’s findings. The Real News Network's analyst Pepe Escobar provides his analysis of the day’s headlines.
