Banco Mundial: Veten a José Manuel Soria como Director Ejecutivo

El exministro José Manuel Soria no es digno de representar a España en el Banco Mundial. Fue obligado, en abril de 2016, a dejar el Gobierno y el escaño del Congreso tras aparecer involucrado en el caso de los Papeles de Panamá y mentir reiterada y descaradamente al pueblo español. A pesar de su despreciable comportamiento, nuestro Gobierno en funciones (un Gobierno provisional) insiste en que Soria represente a España como Director Ejecutivo de un organismo público, financiado por los contribuyentes, como es el Banco Mundial. Si un mentiroso y un corrupto no es digno de representar a España dentro de nuestro país, aún menos debe serlo fuera. No es habitual el veto al representante designado a dedo por el Gobierno de un país, pero en este caso concurren sobradas razones para que el Banco Mundial vete a este ignominioso candidato. Firma esta petición y consigámoslo >>

Freedom for Peter Biar Ajak

Peter Biar Ajak was arrested in South Sudan on July 28. Peter is a youth advocate for peace and a friend and inspiration to many who know him around the world. He is currently being held without charge at the notorious South Sudanese prison known as the Blue House. His friends at universities, human rights institutions, media organisations and others around the world are calling for his release. Peter’s arrest comes amid a worrying trend in arbitrary detentions due to a crackdown on freedom of expression by the South Sudanese government. Amnesty International reports numerous recent arrests without charges. This goes against South Sudan’s constitution which states no one can be held without charge for more than 24 hours. Peter was one of ‘the Lost Boys of South Sudan’. Displaced during the war when he was young, he lived in refugee camps before being taken to the United States by humanitarian charities. Once in the US he learnt English and studied hard, securing a place at La Salle University, then completed a masters at Harvard before studying for a PhD at Cambridge University in the UK. His inspirational story was recognised when he become an Atlantic Council Millennium Fellow and Desmond Tutu Leadership Fellow. In June, Peter was awarded the Crans Montana Forum’s New Leader for Tomorrow Award by H. E. Moussa Traoré, former President of Mali. Peter has always kept his focus on South Sudan and his hope for a peaceful future for his country. He has worked in think tanks, his national government and institutions working for development and peace. He has dedicated himself to creating opportunities for dialogue among South Sudanese youth, running wrestling tournaments across the country to bring young people together and to celebrate South Sudan's unique culture. He founded the South Sudan Young Leaders Forum (SSYLF)  bringing together young leaders, both men and women, from across across ethnicities and politics to encourage youth throughout the countryside to embrace peaceful dialogue. Since Peter’s arrest, there has been amazing support from friends he has made around the world. His detention serves to highlight the systematic abuse and arbitrary detention of innocent people in South Sudan who do not have the same platforms, connections and international support as Peter. Peter has a wife and two young children. We are asking for him to be released and allowed home to his family.

Illegalen Handel mit Wildtieren beenden

Hallo, mein Name ist Jane Goodall und ich möchte Sie um Ihre Unterstützung bitten, den illegalen Handel mit Wildtieren zu beenden. Ich verbringe jedes Jahr rund 300 Tage auf Reisen und spreche mit Menschen darüber, wie wir den Tieren am besten helfen können. Aber ich weiß, dass die Kraft der sozialen Medien sehr viel mehr Menschen sehr viel schneller vernetzen kann, als es eine einzelne Person zu tun vermag. Bitte helfen Sie mir den illegalen Handel mit Wildtieren zu beenden. Gier und das Verlangen nach zunehmend seltener werdenden “Trophäen” lassen den illegalen Handel mit wildlebenden Tieren boomen. Dieser grausame Handel treibt die gefährdeten Arten dieser Welt rasant auf ihre Auslöschung zu. Ich treffe in diesem Jahr mit einigen der führenden Vertreter von Artenschutzorganisationen zusammen und ich brauche dringend Ihre Unterstützung, um ihnen deutlich zu machen, dass es Ihr Wunsch ist, dass die internationale Gemeinschaft den illegalen Handel mit Wildtieren mit höchster Priorität behandeln muss. Meine Kollegen und ich vom Jane Goodall Institut haben die schrecklichen Wunden gesehen, die den Opfern durch Wilderei zugefügt wurden. Wir wissen als Vertreter einer gemeinnützigen Artenschutzorganisation, die gemeinsam mit großen internationalen Partnern in vielen afrikanischen Ländern vor Ort zusammenarbeitet, dass die Abschlachtung dieser wunderbaren Tiere grausam und unentschuldbar ist. Wir haben auch den heroischen Einsatz von Rangern unter Verlust ihres Lebens gesehen, die die Tiere gegen Wilderer verteidigt haben: wir dürfen nicht zulassen, dass ihr Tod umsonst war. In unserem Tchimpounga Schimpansen Rehabilitationszentrum sehen wir Affen, die durch tödliche Schnappfallen verstümmelt wurden, Affen, die an Schusswunden leiden und Schimpansen im Kindesalter, die ihren Müttern entrissen wurden, nachdem diese von Wilderern erschossen wurden. Sie werden auf Märkten angeboten, wo Menschen illegal Schimpansenfleisch kaufen können. Die kleinen Schimpansen kommen oft mit schweren Verletzungen zu uns, sind sehr krank und leiden an schweren psychologischen Störungen, die vielleicht nie mehr heilen werden. Und trotzdem gehören sie zu denen, die Glück gehabt haben. Die Kleinen, die es nicht bis Tchimpounga schaffen, werden oft im illegalen Handel für exotische Haustiere oder für den Unterhaltungssektor verkauft, wo ihr Schicksal ein kurzes, einsames Leben voller Schmerz und Misshandlung ist. Dies ist kein einfaches Thema und voller Beispiele dafür, was der Druck der Armut, fehlende Möglichkeiten des Vollzugs von Schutzrechten, staatliche Korruption und die unreflektierte Nachfrage nach wildlebenden Tieren oder deren Produkten durch Konsumenten in aller Welt anzurichten imstande sind. Der unmenschliche Brauch, in das natürliche Habitat von geschützten Tieren einzudringen um sie zu fangen oder zu töten, um bestimmte Teile zu verwerten, zerstört die kostbarsten Arten unserer Erde, und er muss aufhören. Die Fakten, die die Dringlichkeit dieser Krise verdeutlichen: 35.000 Elefanten werden jedes Jahr für ihr Elfenbein getötet. Die Wilderei von Nashörnern ist zwischen 2007-2014 um 9.000% gestiegen. 73 Millionen Haie werden jedes Jahr ihrer Flossen wegen getötet. Eine Studie von 2014 zeigte, dass es wahrscheinlich nur noch 3.200 wilde Tiger in Asien gibt. Jährlich werden 3.000 Menschenaffen (auch Schimpansen) illegal getötet oder aus der Wildnis gestohlen. Diese Zahlen sind Schätzungen, die auf Populationsgrößen basieren, die es nicht einmal mehr gibt, denn jährlich sind es weniger und weniger Tiere, die überhaupt gejagt werden können. Das Jane Goodall Institut hat nun die großangelegte Jane’s Traffic Stop Kampagne gestartet, um diesen Handel zu beenden. Bitte seien Sie ein Teil davon! Es ist unsere Hoffnung, dass wir einen Beitrag leisten werden, der Wilderei endgültig ein Ende zu setzen, indem wir eine riesige Gemeinschaft von Unterstützerinnen und Unterstützern in den sozialen Medien aufbauen, die im Kampf gegen die Gewalt kontinuierlich die Entscheidungsträger in die Verantwortung nehmen. Ich glaube fest daran, dass wir - vom majestätischen Elefanten bis hin zum kleinsten Schmetterling – vom Aussterben bedrohte und gefährdete Arten wertschätzen und zelebrieren sollten, damit sie in Ruhe leben können... wild und frei. Das kann nicht eine Person allein erreichen. Und wir brauchen Unterstützung. Diese Bewegung braucht Sie! Erheben Sie sich gegen den Handel mit wildlebenden Tieren, indem Sie diese Petition zeichnen und so Ihre Unterstützung zeigen. Und helfen Sie mir dabei diese hoffnungsvolle Botschaft weiterzuverbreiten und z.B. an die IUCN beim World Conservation Congress, an die International Primatological Society auf ihrem zweijährlichen Kongress und vor allem an CITES bei der CoP17 Konferenz in South Africa im September diesen Jahres, zu überbringen. Wir müssen der Welt erzählen, dass wilde Tiere nicht auf der Erde sind, um bis zu ihrer Auslöschung gejagt zu werden und stückweise als Beute oder Trophäen verkauft zu werden. Wir dürfen das Geschäft mit der Wilderei nicht unterstützen, wir müssen bewusster einkaufen und es vermeiden, illegale Tierprodukte zu kaufen oder Unternehmen zu unterstützen, die das tun. Jeder und jede von uns ist nur eine Stimme in dem Kampf um die Beendigung der Wilderei, aber wenn Sie mir alle kollektiv beistehen und Ihre Stimme erheben, dann wird unsere Botschaft unmöglich zu überhören sein. Ich werde eng mit unseren Partnern zusammenarbeiten, um sicherzustellen, dass die Unterschriften dieser Petition weiteren Druck und Erfolg in diese internationale Bewegung bringen, um die Wildtiere zu retten. Unterschreiben Sie jetzt diese Petition und werden Sie Teil meiner Kampagne. Wir werden Sie mit Informationen über weitere Aktionen in den kommenden Wochen und Monaten auf dem Laufenden halten. Ich danke Ihnen. -Dr. Jane Goodall www.janegoodall.de

Stop Slave Trade in Libya

  In Libya, African migrants are being sold as slaves. This has been infamously confirmed by a CNN undercover investigation in November 2017. The migrants undergo horrible conditions. Sanogo, a 22-year-old migrant from Ivory Coast, said, “we were captured and locked in a small room with 60 other people." He added that they were "not able to wash." He recounted, "they hit you all the time, especially if you're big like me, until the blood flows—with sticks, metal, the butt of a gun." Maxime Ndong, a Cameroonian migrant who spent eight months in Libya, reported, "if you resist, they shoot at you. There have been deaths." Slavery is contrary to human decency. This must cease immediately and we are calling out to all of humanity to sign this petition in hopes that those in positions of authority, power, or influence will do everything they can to put an end to this barbaric practice. Aside from signing, please share this petition with your family, friends and followers. And kindly include the following hashtags: #StopSlaveryinLibya #AbolishSlavery

Help us to stop the Chennai - Salem Greenfield Highway Project

Dear sir / madam The farmers and daily wage earners of Salem, Dharmapuri, Krishnagiri, Thiruvannamalai, Kanchipuram, districts of Tamilnadu, India who are in deep distress and anguish due to the proposal of the Tamilnadu government state and national highways department of the Government of Tamilnadu to lay a eight lane green field highway up to a distance of 274 kilometres between Salem and Chennai. The entire region is an agricultural and ecologically sensitive zone with Eastern Ghats, thousands of water bodies like ponds, small dams, catchment areas, and 10000 s of wells and bore wells used for irrigation. What is baffling is the alignment proposed by the highways department of the state of Tamilnadu ignores the existing two historical highways from Salem to Chennai which can be converted to 8 lane highways with minimum loss of livelihoods, and protect the environment. The existing Salem Ulunderpettai, Chengelpet, Chennai or Salem Dharmapuri, Vellore, Sriperumbedur, Chennai high way or both can be expanded. In fact land has been acquired in advance and lying idle. Thousands of poor livestock keepers, daily wage earners and farmers will be rendered homeless and loss of livelihoods, not to mention the colossal loss to biodiversity. In the era of climate change and raising temperatures when eco sensitive nations around the world are working in conserving their precious biological resources the bizarre proposal smacks of nepotism and a illogical move. There has been no stake holder consultation which is mandatory under the law of India and the international United Nations Convention to which India is a signatory. A green field project of this magnitude should have an environmental impact assessment which is also mandatory under national and international funding norms. Without any consultation or environmental impact assessment suddenly now the officials have taken it up and say it will be implemented come what may. We request you to stop funding this project as it is an anti people, anti environment proposal by the government of Tamilnadu. In the last month alone, the state police have harassed land owners along the alignment of the proposed highway. They have been warned against associating with people opposed to the project or entertaining any opinions critical of the project. Social activists like Piyush Manush and Valarmathi and cine artist Mansoor Ali Khan have been arrested for opposing the project and for highlighting the dangers posed by it. On June 20, a hall meeting organised for farmers by the All India Kisan Sabha in Thiruvannamalai was disrupted by the police. Scores of organisers were arbitrarily taken to the police station for questioning and later released. Barricades were put up to prevent farmers from reachIn the meeting hall. The police have become the only public face of the government. We are wondering if we live in a democratically governed country or a banana republic. A social assessment is expected to evaluate the social risks of the project in terms of its social impacts and its acceptability among the project-affected persons. Public consultation is paramount to a robust assessment.Indeed, for the 8-lane Highway, the PFR prepared by Feedback Infra Pvt Ltd notes that the scope of work includes: “Public consultation, including consultation with communities located along the road, NGOs working in the area, other stakeholders and relevant government departments at all the different stages of assignment (such as inception, feasibility, prelim The Feasibility Report falsely states that public consultations have been carried out at the village level, including with potential land-losers like myself, and at the district level, as part of the Social Impact Assessment. No data about the consultations, such as the date of consultation or the names of villages where such consultations happened, have been provided. Neither farmers nor farm workers in the village have never been approached, leave alone consulted, about our response to the project. Had they done so, our objection to the project and the grounds for the same would have reflected in their project report. Secondly the loss to environment due to the felling of millions of trees in the entire 270 kilometre stretch will be tremendous. The loss to biodiversity and the flora and fauna will have a big impact on the region. Already the world is suffering from the effects of climate change. World Bank should not add to the loss of biodiversity which leads to climate change. The entire stretchOf the canal has lakhs of trees, more than 200 documented varieties of birds which will be lost. This will also lead to World Bank going against the basic tenets of the United Nations Convention on biological diversity (UNCBD) and United Nations Convention to combat desertification ( UNCCD).We request upon the world bank to call for a independent assessment of the proposal plus prior informed consent and independent opinion seeking from the ryots ,farmers, concernedBeneficiaries and stake holders. Please make sure advertisements are issued in major news papers and opinion called for under a judicial protection involving the three justices of the high court. The United Nations SDG – Sustainable Development Goals namely The 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) to transform our world:GOAL 1: No PovertyGOAL 2: Zero HungerGOAL 3: Good Health and Well-beingGOAL 4: Quality EducationGOAL 5: Gender EqualityGOAL 6: Clean Water and SanitationGOAL 7: Affordable and Clean EnergyGOAL 8: Decent Work and Economic GrowthGOAL 9: Industry, Innovation and InfrastructureGOAL 10: Reduced InequalityGOAL 11: Sustainable Cities and CommunitiesGOAL 12: Responsible Consumption and ProductionGOAL 13: Climate ActionGOAL 14: Life below WaterGOAL 15: Life on LandGOAL 16: Peace and Justice Strong InstitutionsGOAL 17: Partnerships to achieve the Goal Above mentioned UN goals would be impaired by the proposed Salem highway proposal. It would go against the SDG proposed by the United Nations for the betterment of humanity as a whole. The proposal will be directly against the goals marked in yellow. We hope for justice to prevail in this important livelihood threatening issue of more than half million people directly and indirectly.

Stop Chinese Genocide of Mozambique Forests !!

2008 - 2017. The Chinese are Decimating the forests in Mozambique with the complacency of the Mozambique environmental and Forestry authorities. We are witnessing the extinction of many tree species in 2016 and 2017. The Video is proof that the trees are Juvenile Trees.. very small diameter. Highly Illegal to pass through any Government checkpoint !!! The Drivers and trucks are supposed to be arrested by Law.... but they are being allowed to pass... The Mozambique Authorities say all the "right things" to the press but in reality... they are allowing this environmental crime, the scale of which is increasing exponentially.

Do Your Part to Change the Narrative of The World's Largest E-Waste Dump - Agbogbloshie

Every year over 215,000 tons of e-waste is legally and illegally dumped at Agbogbloshie (Ghana) from the more developed western countries. Unfortunately, the repercussions of this have been the severe environmental degradation that has manifested itself at Agbogbloshie dubbed "Sodom and Gomorrah". Low-income inhabitants (poor men, women and children) trying to survive practice the burning of this electronic waste and scrap to salvage and sell the metals derived from this process. This self-harmful burning has serious health implications.  Low-income inhabitants (poor men, women and children) trying to survive practice the burning of this electronic waste and scrap to salvage and sell the metals derived from this process. This self-harmful burning is severely detrimental to the health of these individuals and releases toxic gases into the atmosphere. However, Agbogbloshie is more than just a dump site, a micro-economy has been established at the Old Fadama slum regarding the profitable redistribution and sale of metal scrap by the inhabitants at Agbogbloshie. It is expected that Ghana’s e-waste imports will double by 2020, the report said assuming growth continues in a linear manner. Subsequently, the "Agbogblo.Shine Initiative" is a non-profit foundation that seeks to fund social enterprises and projects dedicated to applying design-thinking to solve problems regarding e-waste. The first business we intend to support is involved in the repurposing of scrap and e-waste to create high-end furniture with a decidedly African aesthetic. This business also seeks to recruit and employ scrap burners from Agbogbloshie to train them vocationally in the art of the craftsmanship involved in making the furniture pieces - a job with no health implications and no inhalation of black smoke. This will mitigate the practice of mass burning and mitigate the waste. Please help us change the narrative of the world's largest e-waste dump and demonstrate your support by petitioning to aid in funding this foundation. We need you!
