Hopefully the purchases will continue to have a build up of mercury in their systems.

Interesting, you think if you basing a story on an article in the National Geographic you would at least highlight the problems raised in the article, or replant the revised article. Why put Catholic consumers first if China is the biggest consumer (ie, if the Buddhist objects have the greatest demand why highlight Filipino consumption). Otherwise, interesting article.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause

pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in

return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and

the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

Japan has no honour.. the time for negotiation is coming to an end
silence is acceptance
protect life, prosecute those that seek to destroy our shared home and our fellow beings
life has value beyond measurethis
