Ban the use of wild animals in circuses

[Spanish] [French] [Italian] [Dutch] On Easter Monday 2018 there was a road crash in Spain involving five circus elephants. It left one elephant dead and two severely injured. It was only a matter of chance that no people were hurt. This tragedy could have been avoided - that’s why I’m calling for the use of wild animals in circuses to be banned in the European Union. Recent reports show shocking incidents involving the public and wild animals in circuses across Europe. These often involve circuses and animals which, travel all around the continent endangering the health and safety of European citizens. In Spain, a few weeks ago a hippo escaped for the fifth reported time. The elephants involved in this latest incident were on their way to their next performance location with Spanish Circus Gottani. They had been smuggled out of Germany and were forced to France, Latvia, Lithuania, Ireland and, eventually, Spain. The family who owns the elephants has a record of negligent behavior which has led to several incidents. The large majority of EU Member States has already banned or severely restricted the use of wild animals in circuses. The veterinary community has already urged the European and other competent authorities to simply prohibit the use of wild mammals in travelling circuses. We too are calling for the end of the practice. It is time for the European Union to act. Only this can guarantee a solution to the physical and emotional suffering of wild animals in circuses and to the related public security risks. Please sign and share.

Coller des animaux vivants : NON MERCI

Le Conseil d'Etat valide la chasse à la glu.   Je m'appelle Laurent KLEIN-PIERRON, je suis directeur de jardinerie et engagé politiquement comme animateur local au sein de la République En Marche à Montigny les Metz en Moselle. Je ne me prétends pas être particulièrement écologiste ou défenseur de la cause animale mais simplement un citoyen responsable qui pense que la barbarie n'a pas sa place dans les grandes démocraties. Comment prétendre vouloir sauver la planète et d'un autre côté ne pas se préoccuper d'un acteur majeur de la biodiversité qui disparait années après années. Malgré nos différences je pense que l'on peut se rassembler sur un sujet « transpartisan » qui nous concerne tous. Cette chasse dite «traditionnelle», jugée «cruelle» par les défenseurs des oiseaux, consiste à capturer des oiseaux à l’aide de baguettes en bois enduites de glu et dissimulées dans la végétation, sur des arbres ou buissons. Les chasseurs viennent ensuite décoller ceux qui ont été pris au piège et les nettoyer, souvent à l’aide d’un solvant. Gardés vivants, les oiseaux sont placés dans des petites cages, pour attirer grâce à leur présence leurs congénères, qui seront tirés au fusil. "Ils oublient que restant collés, (les oiseaux) peuvent se blesser et mourir d'épuisement ou de stress dans leur tentative de libération. En outre, le 'prélèvement' de l'animal par les chasseurs se réalise avec des solvants toxiques. S'il parvient toutefois à être défait de cette glu, l'oiseau peut également présenter des lésions traumatiques qui lui seront fatales les heures suivantes" Tous ensemble mobilisons nous pour faire pression sur les pouvoirs publics et la commission Européenne pour que cette chasse barbare soit bannie. Il est inadmissible dans les démocraties qui se disent mobilisées pour sauver la planète nous ne nous préoccupions pas des habitants de celle-ci. Protéger la biodiversité n'est pas une passion ou un hobby pour bobos parisiens mais une nécessité pour la planète et l'équilibre de la vie sur terre.  En seulement 30 ans, plus de 420 millions d'oiseaux en Europe ont disparu La sixième extinction massive de la biodiversité est bien en marche : en seulement 30 ans, 421 millions d'oiseaux ont disparu, non pas sur Terre mais seulement en Europe ! C'est l'estimation édifiante réalisée par une étude publiée dans le journal scientifique Ecology Letters. Pour les auteurs, « le déclin global de la biodiversité est sans précédent » (dans l'histoire de l'humanité). Les alertes scientifiques, les mobilisations internationales et locales semblent inefficaces devant le rouleau-compresseur d'une société marchande aveugle à son propre support de vie. Résultat : les écosystèmes s'appauvrissent ou sont méthodiquement stérilisés comme en témoigne le projet de barrage de Sivens en France qui a détruit une zone humide remarquable qui abritait de nombreuses espèces pourtant « protégées ». Si quelques espèces en voie d'extinction connaissent parfois un peu de répit, elles sont trop souvent les représentantes de la biodiversité symbolique, celle qui marque les esprits : pandas, baleines… Laissant de côté les espèces plus communes, dont les oiseaux, qui paient pourtant un lourd tribut. Cette étude menée par Richard Inger et Richard Gregory s'est basée sur 144 espèces d'oiseaux européens sur une échelle de 30 ans. Les données exploitées proviennent du Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme En effet, ces oiseaux offrent de multiples avantages pour les écosystèmes : ils aident à lutter contre les ravageurs en contrôlant leur prolifération, ils disséminent les graines des fruits qu'ils mangent et participent ainsi à la reproduction des végétaux. De plus, les oiseaux détritivores jouent un rôle clé dans l'élimination des charognes dans l'environnement. En outre, pour beaucoup de gens, les oiseaux demeurent le principal moyen dont ils interagissent avec les animaux sauvages, en écoutant leurs chants, en profitant de leur présence, en les alimentant et les observant. https://www.birdlife.org/europe-and-central-asia/news/les-oiseaux-des-champs-une-population-en-voie-de-disparition-en-europe MOBILISONS NOUS !!!

Premio Nobel de la Paz para Jordi Sànchez y Jordi Cuixart

Jordi Sànchez y Jordi Cuixart fueron los primeros presos políticos encerrados por el procés de Catalunya. Fueron acusados de un supuesto delito de sedición y enviados a la cárcel de Soto del Real en octubre de 2017. Están en prisión por sus ideas políticas y por ejercer sus derechos de expresión y participación política sin haber usado jamás la violencia. Que estén privados de libertad precisamente por estas causas es una vulneración del derecho internacional. Por eso pedimos el Premio Nobel de la Paz para Jordi Sànchez y Jordi Cuixart. Firma aquí para que le den este reconocimiento a su labor por expresar la voluntad de un pueblo. Durante estos meses, los Jordis han permanecido en una prisión del Estado español y sus únicas vías de contacto con el mundo exterior son el correo postal y alguna visita ocasional. “Nuestras instituciones han recibido un ataque sin precedentes, pero la respuesta también lo está siendo: más serenos que nunca, más cívicos y pacíficos que nunca, pero con todo el coraje y la determinación”, dijo Jordi Cuixart poco después de su ingreso en prisión. Firma si tú también crees que ambos merecen el Premio Nobel de la Paz, que se otorga a personas que han contribuido notablemente a la sociedad. [English version]

Retiren la inversión que deforesta el Amazonas

(English) Desde hace tres semanas el Amazonas arde sin ningún tipo de control. Sólo en los últimos días se han registrado más de 12.500 incendios en 4 países, sin el esfuerzo necesario para apagarlos. El 80% del territorio deforestado en Brasil se dedicará a criar vacuno y a cultivar soja (soya) para pienso de los pollos, cerdos y vacas que comeremos. Toda la carne que consumimos está detrás de la pérdida del Amazonas: China, Unión Europea y Estados Unidos son los mayores importadores desde Brasil. ADM, Bunge, Cargill, Dreyfus, JBS, Marfrig, Minerva, Benavides Madeiras, Nordisk Timber, Tradelink, Usina y Temate son las principales agroempresas, productoras de soya, ganado, madera y azúcar. BlackRock, Capital Group, HSBC, JPMorgan, BNP y Banco Santander sus máximos inversores/prestamistas El 44% de las exportaciones de Brasil vienen de estos productos (soja, ternera, azúcar y madera), mayoritariamente de tierras deforestadas del Amazonas y el Cerrado. PEDIMOS A LA UNIÓN EUROPEA, CHINA Y ESTADOS UNIDOS QUE DEJEN DE IMPORTAR CARNE, SOJA Y MADERA DE TIERRAS DEFORESTADAS DE BRASIL E INCIDAN EN UN CAMBIO DE POLÍTICA AGROFORESTAL EN LA AMAZONÍA PEDIMOS A LAS ENTIDADES INVERSORAS Y PRESTATARIAS QUE RETIREN SU APOYO A PRODUCTOS Y EMPRESAS BRASILEÑAS QUE OPERAN EN TIERRAS DEFORESTADAS LO EXIGIMOS COMO CIUDADANOS/AS, CON EL PODER DE DEJAR DE CONSUMIR LA CARNE ALIMENTADA CON INCENDIOS DE BOSQUES. --- El Amazonas ha sido hasta ahora el mayor bosque tropical del planeta, dándonos el 20% del oxígeno que respiramos y albergando el 10% de la biodiversidad global. Ha sido el hogar de un millón de indígenas y aún es fundamental como sumidero de nuestro CO2 en la emergencia climática ante la que nos encontramos. En las últimas dos semanas se ha incrementado en un 80% el número de incendios en la Amazonía y en el Cerrado, sobre todo en Brasil (Rondonia y Mato Grosso), Bolivia (Chiquitanía), Perú y Paraguay. No se están poniendo los medios adecuados para apagar estos incendios en ninguno de los países. En el caso de Brasil, el 80% del territorio deforestado se dedica a soya (para cualquier pienso animal) y ternera. Si redujésemos nuestro demanda de carne, se reducirían los motivos para deforestar intencionadamente. El 23% de la economía brasileña proviene de las exportaciones, y la mayor parte de ellas son de esta soya (soja) y de ternera. Más áreas de cultivo agrícola beneficia a las exportaciones a corto plazo. La manera más sencilla de ampliar frontera agrícola es quemando los árboles, lo que aún se complica más en época seca. En el informe reciente de Amazon Watch se identifican las principales empresas brasileñas que exportan soya, carne, madera y azúcar y el apoyo financiero que recibían. Soya: China es la principal compradora de soya brasileña. Las principales empresas son ADM, Bunge, Cargill y Dreyfus, con capital estadounidense y europeo. El crédito fundamentalmente llega de BNP Paribas, JP Morgan, Barclays, Bank of America, Citigroup y Deutsche Bank. La inversión proviene de Vaguard, State Farm y BlackRock. Carne: el 41% de la ternera que comemos en Europa proviene de Brasil. La piel de vacuno brasileña se exporta fundamentalmente a Italia y Estados Unidos. JBS, Marfrig y Minerva son las principales empresas exportadoras de carne de ternera. Fundamentalmente obtienen su crédito de HSBC, Banco Santander, JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley y Bank of America. Capital group, BlackRock y Fidelity financian sobre todo a JBS, de acuerdo a Amazon Watch. Madera: al menos la mitad de la madera exportada proviene de tala ilegal. Benavides Madeiras, Nordisk Timber y Tradelink son las principales exportadoras brasileñas. Las compradoras son mayoritariamente empresas europeas de distribución de madera, sobre todo de Bélgica, Holanda, y Dinamarca, seguidas por Francia, Reino Unido, Canadá y Estados Unidos. Azúcar: un producto que hoy en día está en cada alimento procesado, en cada bebida y hasta en el pan. Usina y Temate son las principales productoras brasileñas que venden a las dos principales refinerías (ASR y ED&F) con compradores tan claves como Pepsi o Coca-cola para sus bebidas azucaradas. Pidamos que se retire la inversión y la compra de estos productos que llevan la huella de la Amazonía brasileña deforestada. Como consumidores, hagamos que nuestras firmas se conviertan en nuestra voluntad por reducir la compra de carne y alimentos envasados, sabiendo que lleva la huella de la deforestación amazónica, que condena nuestro futuro y el del planeta.

Stop Human Rights Violations Abuse/torture and Rape of Somalians in Libya

INHUMAN TREATMENT OF SOMALI MIGRANTS IN LIBYA The European Convention on Human Rights 1950, brought into English law by the Human Rights Act 1998, guarantees your most fundamental human rights, including the rights to freedom from torture, and freedom from inhuman or degrading treatment (Article 3 ECHR). I have recently watch a snap video of a young black woman pleading to the world . In the video she is tight by the hands and legs, she is wearing a ripped cloths ( very dirty white t shirt , and no shoes). Continuously being beaten with a stick non stop . Her head is bleeding and she is covered with mud and dust . she severely malnourished and hopeless . this video has deeply disturbed me and so many other people who watched it. She is somalian as that is the language she is using  . We do not know where she is currently  located other than being in libya . These woman are being tortured and punished / raped and sold on the black markets for simply trying to find a better life for themselves and their family . Currently there are more than 500,000 migrants and refugees are estimated to be trapped in the war-torn country of libya . Woman who gave birth to their rapist child. We  demand that the Somali people held in detention and children, as well as women and girls detained with dependent children or pregnant, are released and  Send them back Home to somalia.

Für ein EU-weites Verbot von Wildtieren im Zirkus

Am Ostermontag kam es in Spanien zu einem Verkehrsunfall mit fünf Zirkuselefanten. Der Unfall führte zum Tod eines Elefanten und zwei weitere wurden schwer verletzt. Nur durch Zufall wurden keine Menschen verletzt. Diese Tragödie hätte verhindert werden können - deshalb fordere ich ein Verbot des Einsatzes von Wildtieren in Zirkussen in der Europäischen Union. Aktuelle Berichte belegen schockierende Zwischenfälle mit der Bevölkerung und wilden Tieren in Zirkussen in ganz Europa. Nicht selten sind dabei  Zirkusunternehmen  und deren Tiere beteiligt, welche auf dem ganzen Kontinent unterwegs sind und so die Gesundheit sowie Sicherheit der europäischen Bürger gefährden. So ist in Spanien vor einigen Wochen bereits zum fünften Mal in Folge der Ausbruch eines Flußpferds dokumentiert worden. Die Elefanten, die bei dem jüngsten Unfall beteiligt waren, waren auf dem Weg zu ihrem nächsten Aufführungsort mit dem spanischen Circus Gottani. Die Tiere wurden vor Jahren illegal  aus Deutschland geschmuggelt und in der Folge u.a. durch Frankreich, Lettland, Litauen, Irland und schließlich Spanien transportiert. Die Familie, der die Elefanten gehören, ist in der Vergangenheit schon durch fahrlässiges Verhalten aufgefallen, welches zu mehreren Vorkommnissen geführt hat. Die große Mehrheit der EU-Mitgliedstaaten hat den Einsatz von Wildtieren in Zirkussen bereits verboten oder stark eingeschränkt. Die Europäische Tierärztevereinigung  hat die europäischen wie auch die zuständigen Behörden der Mitgliedsstaaten bereits aufgefordert, den Einsatz von Säugetieren wild lebender Arten in Wanderzirkussen zu verbieten. Auch ich fordere das Ende dieser Praxis. Es ist an der Zeit, dass die Europäische Union handelt. Nur so können die physischen und psychischen Leiden von Wildtieren in Zirkussen beendet und die damit verbundenen Risiken für die öffentliche Sicherheit verringert werden. Bitte unterschreiben und teilen.

Fire Moria Camp: Call for urgent evacuation and radical change

Deutsch  Ελληνικά   Italiano  Français  Nederlands  Español  Portuguesa  Polski Dansk  Svenska Norsk Català Together we are calling on European leaders to act now. The fire in Moria camp on the Greek island of Lesvos was a disaster waiting to happen. The biggest refugee camp in Europe has gone up in flames, leaving over 12,000 people without shelter, amidst the global pandemic. The European migration policies that trap people in inhumane conditions across the Greek islands must end. Moria camp was more than an overcrowded and unsafe camp. It had become a symbol of how Europe treats people on the move. For years, we have witnessed the harmful impact of European policies on people’s lives: appalling conditions in camps on the islands, numerous deaths at sea, violence and pushbacks at the borders of Europe.  The European Union is at a critical turning point, soon presenting a ‘fresh start’ on migration (in the form of a new Migration and Asylum Pact). The whole world witnessed the fire at Moria: European leaders and the European Commission must realise that enough is enough. Those who have the power to make decisions in the next days, weeks and months have a historic responsibility.  Join us in calling on European leaders and the European Commission to: Immediately evacuate all people who had to flee Moria camp. Basic human rights to shelter, food, sanitation facilities and healthcare cannot be upheld on Lesvos or the other Greek islands. Urgently decongest the islands and focus on relocation across Europe. Abandon any future approach to migration that would again trap people in inhumane conditions in camps on islands (or facilities at borders), awaiting a decision on their asylum claim. The policy of restricting asylum seekers’ movement from the islands to mainland Greece has to end. Implement migration policies that ensure protection, as opposed to exclusion. This requires increased solidarity and responsibility sharing between European countries, and an end to systematic human rights abuses at the borders. The need for action has never before been more urgent.

Garantire il diritto alla riparabilità nel pacchetto sull'economia circolare in Europa

Per il Diritto alla Riparazione Rischiamo di perdere un’occasione unica per trasformare la nostra attuale economia “usa e getta”: c’è il rischio concreto che i paesi membri dell’Unione Europea diluiscano o votino contro alcune misure chiave del Pacchetto sull’Economia Circolare, che stipula prodotti più riparabili e più longevi. L’Italia e’ tra i paesi che stanno bloccando il voto. L’Italia deve pubblicamente cessare di opporsi al voto. Perché questo è fondamentale? Non c’è mai stata così tanta sensibilità tra la gente e così tanto supporto per la lotta contro gli sprechi, con la crisi della plastica nel mare e lo spreco alimentare che hanno visto una mobilizzazione di massa attraverso l’Europa e nel mondo durante quest’ultimo anno. E oltre il cibo e il packaging, il pubblico vuole che tutti i prodotti siano migliori. Un’inchiesta realizzata da Eurobarometer rivela che il 77% dei cittadini europei è a favore di prodotti più riparabili. **A livello globale, questo è l’anno in cui, secondo le stime, produrremo circa 50 milioni di tonnellate di rifiuti elettronici, l’equivalente di quasi 1000 Titanic** La Commissione Europea ha lavorato per anni sul Pacchetto sull’economia circolare con politiche per governare le risorse ed i rifiuti, che fissano obiettivi per il riciclo più ambiziosi e nuove misure che renderanno elettrodomestici e prodotti elettronici più riparabili e longevi garantendo: l’accesso ai pezzi di ricambio la documentazione per la riparazione la facilità di smontaggio Non sono solo gli euroscettici che stanno cercando di bloccare questi nuovi standard trasformativi. Fabbricanti e lobbisti al soldo delle multinazionali stanno lavorando dietro le quinte per far naufragare le misure più innovative e più pro-pianeta che siano mai state avanzate. É arrivato il momento per l’Italia di intervenire affinché l’Europa difenda gli interessi della maggioranza dei suoi cittadini. Come la grande maggioranza dei cittadini europei, anche noi in Italia siamo stanchi dell’obsolescenza prematura dei prodotti che compriamo. E l’anno scorso, il Parlamento Europeo ha preso posizione votando in favore di prodotti elettronici più riparabili. L’Italia deve sostenere il Diritto alla Riparazione, che allo stesso tempo aiuterà i nostri portafogli, e salverà il pianeta. Come sarà consegnata Se riusciamo a raccogliere un numero sufficiente di firme, consegneremo la petizione al governo italiano a Roma e alla delegazione italiana presso l’Unione Europea, a Bruxelles.

Reconocimiento Ministerio de España títulos universitarios europeos

En la Unión Europea los títulos universitarios, aunque tengan créditos europeos (ECTS) y pertenezcan al plan bolonia, no vienen reconocido automáticamente por los de màs países europeos. Es necesario pedir la equivalencia u homologación de estos títulos en los países donde se quiere ver reconocido los títulos universitarios. El Ministerio de Educación y Formación Profesional en España tarda de media entre uno y dos años para conceder las equivalencias de estos títulos universitarios, tiempo que rinden discriminatorios frente los demás ciudadanos europeos el acceso a oposiciones o en general a puesto de trabajo que necesitan de un reconocimiento de los títulos universitarios. Yo personalmente estoy esperando una equivalencia, y después de haberle escrito a muchas instituciones incluso europeas, no he encontrado solución. La UE define como limite máximo 4 meses solo para los títulos habilitantes, antes de que sea discriminatorio para los ciudadanos europeos, pero para los títulos no habilitante la competencia es exclusivamente de los singulos países europeos. En mi caso el máster habilitante lo he realizado directamente en una universidad española para evitar problemas, donde entre otras, nadie nos informo que era necesaria la equivalencia de los precedentes títulos universitarios para poder trabajar como docentes. Por no tener la equivalencia no pude ser contratado de un instituto de educación secundaria que carecìa de docente y que encontraba dificultades en encontrar uno, no puedo apuntarme a bolsas extraordinarias de profesorado y no puedo presentarme a oposiciones aunque haya realizado el máster habilitante (MAES) en una universidad española. Se pide por lo tanto que el Ministerio de Educación y Formación Profesional respete los límites de 4 meses para conceder las equivalencias de títulos universitarios europeos.   ENGLISH: In the European Union, university degrees, although they have European credits (ECTS) and belong to the Bologna plan, are not automatically recognized by those of other European countries. It is necessary to ask for the equivalence or homologation of these degrees in the countries where you want to see recognized university degrees. The Ministry of Education and Vocational Training in Spain takes an average of between one and two years to grant the equivalences of these university degrees, time that discriminates against other European citizens access to competitive exams or in general to a job that requires a recognition of university degrees. I personally am waiting for an equivalence, and after writing to many European institutions, I have not found a solution. The EU defines a maximum limit of 4 months for qualifying titles only, before it is discriminatory for European citizens, but for non-qualifying titles, competition is exclusively for individual European countries. In my case, the master's degree has been done directly in a Spanish university to avoid problems, where among others, nobody informed us that the equivalence of the previous university degrees was necessary to be able to work as teachers. For not having the equivalence I could not be hired from a secondary school that lacked a teacher and found difficulties in finding one, I can not sign up for extraordinary bags of teachers and I can not apply to competitive exams even if I have done the master's degree (MAES) in a Spanish university. It is therefore requested that the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training respect the limits of 4 months to grant the equivalences of European university degrees.
