Travel companies: Stop encouraging holidaymakers to visit bullfights
Bullfighting is one of the world's worst acts of cruelty to animals. Most holidaymakers lured in to bullrings by tour operators are left shocked and disgusted at the merciless violence they witness. It is wrong for travel companies, tour operators and hotels to direct tourists to this bloody spectacle.
Discovery ID: No Means No! Stop Your Exploitive Program, “Village of The Damned”
Despite protests from victims’ families and community leaders, Discovery has chosen to premiere its show, inaccurately depicting a series of unrelated, tragic events around the small town of Dryden, NY, over a ten-year period, throughout the holidays–the very time many of the events happened. This series is not an attempt to inquire, investigate, help or to heal. It is voyeurism of human suffering and tragedy. It misrepresents and commoditizes grief. It disrespects those whose lives it depicts. EXPLOITING TRAGEDY / IGNORING VICTIMS From early on in the production, key family members of victims portrayed in this series objected to and protested its creation. In lengthy personal conversations with producer, Stephen Dost, of Red Marble Media, victims’ families pleaded with him to stop, explaining the damage and retraumatization this would bring by forcing the families to relive their experiences on Discovery’s and Red Marble Media’s terms. They asked, they pleaded, and they were ignored. One of the aspects that makes trauma so debilitating is a lack of control or ability to influence life changing events. These ignored pleas have caused fresh wounds for those preyed upon. There is no healing, rather additional trauma. Discovery’s unaccountable power is unacceptable to us and runs counter to Discovery's own corporate campaign, “Inspire a Difference.” This initiative purports: "Raising awareness of domestic violence, civil rights, bullying, victims’ rights and healing." Discovery must hold their own programming choices accountable to the very principles they claim to champion. The Mayor of Dryden and eight local pastors support these protests and have signed a letter on behalf of the community. You can read the letter here. The United Methodist Church Finger Lakes District Superintendent also wrote a letter of protest. You can read his letter here. UNETHICAL PRODUCTION Healing and compassion have nothing to do with this program. The series title alone gives it away. “Village of the Damned” serves no purpose other than to cater to the macabre and prurient interests of viewers. It is instructive that other productions by Red Marble Media include Evil Lives Here, Grave Secrets, My Dirty Little Secret, Gates of Hell, and Most Evil. While some families participated in interviews, which we do not raise issue with, others strenuously objected to having their stories told in this way. The producers ruthlessly persisted, misrepresenting their motives, claiming to be promoting healing while hearing from the mouths of the victims themselves that they were being caused stress and pain. The voices in this series are not a fair representation of the whole. Throughout filming, community members were misled about having the permission of the families principally involved in these events. These lies have caused conflict, stressed our relationships with each other, and further isolated the very people this community has tried to hold with gentleness and healing grace. MISLEADING MARKETING Contrary to Discovery’s assertion in press materials, Dryden residents and family members of victims did not “put their trust” in the production company. Though they were able to find some willing participants in the area, the producers of this program were repeatedly asked to halt production by far more who opposed it. In fact, producers were well aware of objections as they were denied interview space at a local church, a cafe, as well as school grounds because of community protest. Additionally, Discovery claims "two love stories turn to tragedy." In fact, relationships that end in murder are not love stories. They are stories of abuse, violence, and pain. Furthermore, this series creates a fictional community. Referencing the “village” of Dryden is misleading and inaccurate since most of the events did not happen in the village but in other towns. TRANSCENDING EXPLOITIVE MEDIA Promotion of “Village of the Damned” refers to a curse, and this is true. It is the curse of salacious programming that has been spawned within our country, unfortunately propagated by Discovery Channel. The real Village of the Damned lies within our media culture. With mass shootings becoming the new normal, with unimaginable suffering of victims and survivors, does this now represent the new normal on our public media response? Compassion replaced by self-interest, a tabloid-loving nation that respects neither the privacy nor suffering of its neighbors? There is no higher motive here, no transcendent reason to dismiss the needs of the victims. No overriding reason to open wounds that have yet to heal. Airing this program will prove the Discovery Channel is simply interested in profits over compassion, willing to take the common denominator of television to new lows. In the 1960 horror, sci-fi film of the same name, “Village of The Damned,” the aliens who take the form of children say, “You have to be taught to leave us alone.” Discovery Channel: Leave us alone!

Discovery Channel: Cancel "Ted Nugent's Gun Country" or face a massive boycott of your channel
Ted Nugent is a twice convicted poacher and he participates in penned/canned hunts. He is an admitted pedophile, homophobe and misogynist. He constantly spews hate speech. He recently threatened The President of the United States and The Secretary of State. He stated that if Obama gets re-elected he will shoot him. His behaviour is volatile, obnoxious and arrogant. He recently told a reporter after getting asked a question he didn't agree with, that he should perform oral sex on him ( his words were more vile). When the female producer intervened she was told by Ted that he would f**k her. He is also a draft dodger and is a vocal anti-government proponent. As a former viewer and long time fan of the Discovery Channel, I am shocked and disappointed to know they would promote this hate speech spewing misogynist.The discovery channel used to be known for it's educational programming and content. Why on earth would they lower their standards to partner with this less than stable raving lunatic. I am urging everyone to boycott this channel until this filth is removed. Please join me in signing this petition and share it with everyone you can. National Geographic just cancelled their program featuring trophy hunter Melissa Bachman due to public pressure. We can do this!!! UPDATE: The first episode aired, unfortunately. It featured Ted killing a Scimitar Horned Oryx. An animal who is now extinct in the wild. This just makes it that much important to get the word out about Discovery's decision to promote Nugent.
Eurosport to cover ALL FIG's RG World and World Challenge Cups
To whom it may concern, The heresigned fans of rhythmic gymnastics, a sport that has been in the Olympic family since 1984 and in recent years has consecutively proved to have followers from all over the world, would like to express their deep regret that in the past season this beautiful sport has become more and more difficult to watch. Fans have been geoblocked, insulted, banned, and worst of all, turned away from something they deeply love. Due to the increasingly high demands of the FIG for the television broadcast, local/national tv stations are finding it harder and more unsustainable to provide international coverage of important rhythmic competitions, such as the World and World Challenge Cups, the former to serve as Olympic qualifications for the games in Tokyo 2020. We think it's shocking how some competitions are remaining partly or even entirely hidden from their usual fanbase, let alone the mainstream audience, thus limiting the reach of the sport itself and making it less popular than it already is. Our question is how can the FIG declare they're doing everything to popularize rhythmic gymnastics when some of the biggest competitions will have an extremely limited reach? We think a solution to this may be for the FIG and Eurosport International, part of Discovery Inc. to consider broadcasting these events on the latter's channels, thus making them available from anywhere in the world, even on a pay-per-view basis. We are deeply saddened that a huge part of the approaching World Cup in Pesaro, the Individual All-Around, will not be seen by anyone besides the audience present and are hopeful that this will be the last event of this scale that leaves these bitter feelings inside of us.
Ban Plastic Flowers
BAN PLASTIC FLOWERS We as humans love flowers..!!! We admire them for their varied shape, color, fragrance and their beauty. We express our feelings through beautiful flowers. Even a simple flower brings happiness and cheer to all of us. Does plastic flowers bring the same feelings..?? Indeed No..!! And therefore we have reached to a point where we need to ask ourselves this question….. and the genesis of this question is “ Rampant use of plastic flowers”. The biggest worry today to the entire mankind is the use of plastic in life in various forms! Our Indian Floriculture industry today is facing the threat of this demon (plastic) in the form of plastic flowers. In the last few years; the industry is squeezed by plastic flowers. Majority of festivals and events are being decorated with by plastic flowers or otherwise with natural flowers. Plastic or Artificial flowers have entered silently but largely into our lives and we are welcoming them unconsciously too! Be it festivals, events, marriages, or even funerals; plastic flowers have replaced real flowers on a very large scale. Plastic has already caused immense damage to our mother Earth and we also see it in everyday news, social posts however we are not enough sensible taking measures to save our planet. Many countries have banned plastic and some of them are even finding solutions to offer mankind eco-friendly replacement. But the question still remains….is that enough? We express our emotions, our feelings through flowers, bouquets, pot plants whether happy or sad! And this moment is being cherished by us as well the one who receives these flowers! In this endeavor; we have a very important partner to allow us this happiness and he is the farmer! The farmer; who has worked hard, to grow them good quality in spite of all the adverse conditions. Don’t you think we are doing injustice to his hard work by using plastic flowers? How many people are making their ends meet by selling the flowers? Do we know the every one in the whole chain? The moment we decide to use “Artificial Flowers”; we are taking away their livelihood! Isn’t it inhuman? We all need to be sensible about this!!! It’s time that we all need to come together and take an oath to stop use of all kind of plastic flowers! Ask ourselves…. fake or fresh…..it’s our choice. Being the pioneer in Indian Floriculture Industry; we, KF Bioplants are more concerned about these issues faced by our farmers. Therefore; we are putting little efforts in creating awareness about use of plastic flowers and bringing all the farmers under one umbrella. We have started this initiative on all our social media handles as well. We request all of you to sign this petition and share your views. Kindly support us on all our social media handles as well to create awareness. A Farmer is Losing His Job, STOP use of Plastic Flowers. Use #banplasticflowers # saynotoplasticflowers #savefarmers #savefloriculture in your posts.

Rivogliamo Salvo Aiello telecronista di ciclismo su Eurosport in coppia con Magrini.
NO alla sostituzione di Salvo Aiello al commento delle gare ciclistiche su Eurosport Italia. La storica coppia Aiello, Magrini non deve sciogliersi! Non abbiamo nulla contro il nuovo telecronista Luca Gregorio di cui non si discutiamo bravura e professionalità ma la nostra stima e affetto per Salvo Aiello è qualcosa che va oltre. Le telecronache della coppia Aiello Magrini, non sono solo una cronaca sportiva ma un vero e proprio racconto. Con loro ci emozioniamo ridiamo, ci arrabbiamo. Ci hanno riportato alla dimensione umana del ciclismo. Con loro nelle corse non esistono tempi morti e sappiamo che qualunque cosa succeda avremo sempre la chiave di lettura giusta. Con il mancato rinnovo del contratto di Salvo Aiello è come se Discovery da un giorno all'altro ci privasse di frequentare un amico a cui vogliamo tanto bene. RIPENSATECI. Non costringeteci a cambiare canale!!
