For goodness sake, it's time to take stock and have respect for our animal brethren. We cannot go on being so greedy and usurping every animals home range because it may hold something humans think they want regardless of the cost. These endangered animals must be left alone to live in peace. They are so much more valuable than anything some greedy oil company can find to expand their wallets like greedy fat cats. Our children of the future need us to stop this greedy genocide against Gorillas and all animals. . .Signed, shared and noted. . .Thank you for posting and sharing. . .

Thanks to all who signed, all who WILL sign, all who sign and circulate Petitions like this one, all who post important News that is OVERLOOKED BY THE MEDIA and that we would never otherwise even know about! Thank you Angela and all those who stand up for the Endangered Gorillas of Virunga! Thanks also to all those who generously sent me Green Stars for agreeing with my comment, "LEAVE FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND."
It is time now to STAND UP AND FIGHT.
Corporations as my name says, are EVIL. Are Corporations "people"? Really? Do Corporations have a Heart and a Soul? DO CORPORATIONS CARE ONE WHIT ABOUT ANIMALS? Really? When Animal Habitat and Welfare interferes in the slightest with Corporations' FILTHY GROSS PROFIT$$$$$?????!!!!!
Corporations SHOULD BE DISMANTLED. They no longer in ANY sense, serve "The Public Good".
There are OTHER ways of organizing our Economic Life, other than the present system of Corporate Capitalism. It is NOT "inevitable".
Remember as Frederick Douglas said, "Power concedes nothing without a struggle. It never has and never will."
Signing Petitions such as this, is a BEGINNING of struggle... for the Planet!

I watched the documentary about SOCO International and what they have done in the Virunga National Park. Between the poachers and wanting to drill for oil, they are destroying the park and the animals! What a horrible situation. The rangers were all so brave in trying to protect the park and animals. They were no match for the rebels! So sad!

When I say others, I mean any other living thing that has exactly the same rights to be on this Earth as people do... Well, actually I believe that they deserve to enjoy life on Earth a lot more than any human, after all they don't destroy, pollute, murder, humiliate, rape, stab, shoot, etc.etc.etc.

One of my Comments above was deleted by Care2, for their own reasons.
Here it is AGAIN, with additions:

LEAVE ALL FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND.
80% of Fossil Fuel Reserves must be LEFT IN THE GROUND
if we are to avert Climate CATASTROPHE due to Global Warming.

NO MORE drilling, coal mining, fracking,
and transporting, leaking and spilling and exploding,
and BURNING and spewing into the Atmosphere.
NO MORE exploration for new sources!
This should be Environmentalists' MANTRA:
LEAVE FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND.

This will take a Major Effort comparable to the U.S. switching from Civilian Consumer Goods to War Production during WWII. An even greater effort! But necessary - and where there's a Will there's a Way.
