Petition to Abuse Case Manager
World's Fattest Asiatic Bear Needs Urgent Help!
Meet Dillion, a male Asiatic Black Bear who is currently stuck living in a small concrete and steel cage in the state of Pennsylvania. Dillon’s small, damp cage is part of a private sportsmen’s club located in Hartley Township, PA. He, along with a Bobcat and Raccoon that also live in small steel cages are the main attraction for club members who also have the option to blast guns at the club’s shooting range located less than 200’ away. tinyurl.com/y4wc7oy9 The video above shows Dillon sitting in his cage stereotypically rocking back and forth, as he listens to repetitive loud gunshots. Dillon is morbidly obese weighing nearly twice the weight of a normal Asiatic Black Bear, and has a mouth full of rotting teeth. He also has an open sore on his side that he constantly scratches. Dillon could easily die from any or all of complications he is currently suffering from, so this is an urgent situation. That is why The Wild Animal Sanctuary’s Director and staff Veterinarian traveled to Pennsylvania to offer help - but were turned away by the Club’s management - leaving Dillon no choice but to continue suffering. The Sportsman’s Club refuses to let Dillon go to a sanctuary or other facility that can properly care for him, so you are his only hope. Please call them… AND email them… AND write a letter to the address provided below so the Club’s management will know that you seriously care about Dillon. Tell them you want to see him moved to a new home immediately where he can receive proper medical attention and live in a more natural life.

Petition to Honorable Chui Sai On
Shut down the Canidrome, the world's deadliest greyhound racetrack.
383. This is the number of dogs that were killed in one year at Macau’s infamous greyhound racing track, the Yat Yuen Canidrome. That’s more than one dog every day. Many are destroyed for underperforming; those lucky enough to win their races meet a different fate -- fatal injury or illness due to the deplorable conditions they’re forced to live in. I run an animal rescue organization called ANIMA here in Macau, an island off the coast of mainland China, and the carnage that takes place at the Canidrome is a source of deep sadness and shame for me. But now there is hope! I’m working with U.S.-based greyhound advocacy group GREY2K USA Worldwide to convince the government of Macau to permanently end this horrific animal abuse. Can you help us? Tell Macau to close the Canidrome racetrack, where every single greyhound either dies from terrible injuries, or is killed for running too slowly. And before they die, these greyhounds suffer terribly. On just one racing day recently, greyhounds at the Canidrome suffered torn muscles, cuts, infections, and one dog named “Speed Baby” had his stomach twisted more than 180 degrees during a race. He later died from an intestinal rupture. Macau's leaders care a lot about how the rest of the world sees them. More than half of the island’s economy — and 70% of the government’s revenue — comes from international tourism. If the world speaks up against the Canidrome’s outdated and barbaric treatment of these animals, Macau's government has to listen. There’s a reason the Yat Yuen Canidrome is the only remaining greyhound racetrack in all of Asia. Other countries have woken up to the horrendous abuse involved in this pastime, and they’ve decided not to stand for it. Please help me call on the government of Macau to join them and make the humane choice to end greyhound racing here, too. Sign my petition, and help stop the Canidrome racetrack from racing hundreds of greyhounds to death each year. Truly, Albano MartinsPresident, Anima Macau

Protect Africa's Eden! No oil drilling in the world's largest nature conservation area!
DE / EN My name is Ina-Maria Shikongo, I was born in a refugee camp in Angola, grew up in East Germany and went to school in Namibia. Together with Fridays For Future Windhoek, I am fighting for an ecological change, because I see that an incredible amount of people are losing their homes due to the climate crisis. +++ Please share and support our call to stop oil drilling in the Kavango region. +++ Out of pure greed for profit, the Canadian company ReconAfrica is endangering the largest cross-border nature reserve on earth (KAZA - Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area), which also includes the unique Okavango Delta, with its oil drilling. The drilling plans not only threaten to destroy the sensitive ecosystem of one of the largest and most animal-rich wetlands in Africa, but would also have a direct impact on the lives of the San who live there. What made us start this petition now: Test drilling in the region has already started. We have to act fast NOW and stop this madness immediately in order to protect the largest nature reserve on earth and home of the San. We cannot under any circumstances allow ourselves to lose further “Garden of Eden” to companies out of pure greed for profit. That is why we call on the German Federal Government to stand up for the preservation of the livelihood of the people and animals in KAZA, the Okavango Delta and the surrounding areas. How is Germany involved in the whole thing? The German Federal Government is funding the preservation of the KAZA area through the KfW Development Bank with over 35.5 million euros in taxpayers' money. This must not be destroyed by ReconAfrica's greed for profit. Oil drilling is by no means compatible with these KAZA preservation targets. As a possible direct consequence of Recon's plans, Angola recently lifted its oil production ban in the Okavango Basin. The German Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, Svenja Schulze, must ensure that the exploration phase (drilling and seismic surveys) is stopped until all consequences for the environment have been clarified! The Background: Last year, the Canadian company ReconAfrica, which is also listed at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, secured approval for test drilling for the production of oil and gas in the Kavango region. If the test wells are successful, the company plans to produce oil and gas on the Namibian and Botswana side for at least 25 years. And as if that wasn't bad enough, they will probably also want to use fracking! The group suspects shale oil deposits of around 120 billion barrels of oil and refers to the Kavango Basin as the last large oil field in the world. The drilling sites are located in the middle of KAZA and only about 50 km away from tributaries to the Okavango Delta. Local environmentalists are demanding a transnational environmental assessment as soon as possible. This is the only way to reliably and transparently assess how serious the impact of oil drilling is for the people, animals, water, the soil and our climate. The only assessments carried out so far are neither neutral nor comprehensive. What is at stake: A UNESCO World Heritage site will be destroyed The Okavango Delta is an intact ecosystem and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its unique fauna. It is home to elephants, rhinos, lions and leopards, as well as other endangered species such as wild dogs and lechwes. Our climate Fossil energies must remain in the ground all over the world in order to limit global warming to the necessary 1.5° C. Investments should be made in renewable energies like solar energy and not in oil! Water pollution and conflicts over the scarce resource water Fracking requires 10-40 million litres of water per drilling site, which the local population and agriculture therefore are deprived of. Namibia is already one of the driest regions in the world. In the event of damage, the wells could also contaminate the groundwater and surface water, which ultimately also flows into the Okavango Delta. Fracking and the oil industry are an environmental hazard The chemicals used in fracking would be released into the environment. Even if fracking were not used, toxic production wastewater would have to be stored and disposed of, and the oil industry with its heavy goods vehicles would leave behind a devastated environment. It is already becoming apparent that proper treatment and disposal of the toxic fracking water will not take place. The controversial extraction method also increases the health risks for pregnant women. KAZA National Park as a cross-border peace project might be affectedThe German government has invested over 35.5 million euros in the region through the KfW Development Bank. The money is to be used to promote local farming and ecotourism, among other things. This now threatens to be undone. Tourism threatens to collapseNature tourism in the region would come to a standstill in the event of extensive oil explorations. This is the third largest economic factor in Namibia, in Botswana tourism contributes around 13% to the gross domestic product (and the trend is rising). The company also does not seem to care much about the safety of the surrounding farmers, nature or minimum environmental standards. The backflow that flows back to the surface from the drilling site is e.g. stored in an unsecured pit right next to it. Backflows from oil/gas production are highly toxic and could cause considerable damage to the immediate vicinity and contaminate the groundwater. We call on the German government to stand up against the oil drilling and for a cross-border strategic environmental assessment! Until all the consequences of the project have been finally clarified, the drilling and seismic investigations may not be continued! Thank you very much for your vote and support! Ina and Deutsche Umwelthilfe +++ Please share and support our call for the oil drilling to be stopped +++

A decision that make no sense what so ever, especially when there are other unused areas better suited, therefore the need of this and maybe other petitions. So if you're a discgolf fan anywhere on the planet please support by signing. Thanks for reading and enjoy your day! A basket in every backyard and neighborhood! Share with everyone you know! http://www.discgolfpark.com https://www.facebook.com/groups/228409867748/ Respekt till alla avlidna människor men en vacker park som Järva discgolf park bör vara för aktiva levande människor, speciellt när golf banan är ett etablerat namn i världen.

Unlock Coronavirus research for world's scientists
Follow the fight on Twitter UPDATE: THANK YOU SPRINGER, TAYLOR & FRANCIS, OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS, AND WILEY FOR TAKING DECISIVE ACTION DURING HUMANITY'S UNPRECEDENTED GLOBAL HEALTH EMERGENCY. Right now, thousands of scientific studies about the Coronavirus are locked behind subscription paywalls, blocking scientists from getting access to research needed to discover antiviral treatments and a vaccine to stop the virus. Although publishers have made some research available via Open Access, thousands of articles remain locked behind paywalls. Publishers must immediately unlock every scientific article containing the term “Coronavirus.” It is a moral imperative. Publishing companies like Elsevier make billions in profit from subscription fees paid by scientists. Scientists working in the developing world often cannot afford these costly subscriptions, which are needed to get past paywalls to access studies. The Liberian Minister of Health Dr. Bernice Dahn warned us that crucial Ebola research was inaccessible to scientists during the height of the 2014 Ebola epidemic. A subscription fee stood between Ebola scientists and life-saving research. A single research paper would cost a physician in Liberia $45 - half a week’s salary. A paper that might save countless lives. Humanity cannot afford to make the same mistake twice. We cannot let greed get in the way of science and cost human lives. Hundreds of people have died, tens of thousands are infected. Publishers must open their hearts and share everything known about Coronaviruses during this crisis with every researcher, rich or poor. This time, we cannot let paywalls stand between scientists and the scientific knowledge they need to fight the virus. Unlock Coronavirus Science We demand scientific publishers Elsevier, John Wiley & Sons, Springer Nature, Taylor & Francis, SAGE Publications, Oxford University Press, and Wolters Kluwer support our scientists and physicians during this humanitarian crisis. Now is not the time for profit, now is the time for action. Thank you for supporting our brave scientists during this globally urgent humanitarian crisis.

Remove Protein World's "Beach Body Ready" ads!
I have to take the subway to work, so every day I have this ad staring at me, asking me if I am “beach body ready.” I notice little girls studying the ad’s unrealistic, photoshopped figure with protruding ribs and a “perfect” chest, and I think: "What message is this putting into their heads?" The Protein World ads have been removed from London (with help from this petition). Now, Protein World has crossed the pond to subject New Yorkers to the same sexist and fat-shaming messaging that the British wouldn’t stand for. These ads send the message that our bodies are not acceptable unless they are "perfect." I know there are ads like this everywhere, and I wish that wasn’t the case. But Protein World’s ads are much more damaging than most -- while other brands might use a model to sell their clothes, their messaging doesn’t blatantly tell you that you are inadequate just for being you. According to Protein World, if I don’t look like the woman in the ad, I shouldn’t even bother to hit the beach this summer. Well, I reject that and I think most Americans do too. Dear Protein World, My body is a miracle. It is strong and healthy. I have a tummy and varicose veins on my legs, and my thighs touch. But you know what? I also have a huge smile on my face, because I am healthy and happy. Our bodies are always “beach body ready!” Please join me in asking Protein World to remove these hurtful ads. This is the summer that embraced love and rejected hate. Ask Protein World to do the same. Find another way to promote your product that encourages true health and wellness! We need a change in our advertising, and you can be a part of the change!
