Petition to GVK, CIDCO

Animals are dying at Navi Mumbai International Airport Site! Appeal CIDCO to build Shelter

If you haven't heard already, construction of Navi Mumbai International Airport has begun at Panvel. This land, used to be collection of villages, which have now been abandoned and flattened for the construction. The villagers left tonnes of rubble and 100s animals behind. These animals, once dependent on the villagers for food and water, are now walking miles to find nothing but mud, rocks and dust. The site preparation involves breaking down hillocks and boulders and levelling the ground. Furthermore, the construction equipment, destruction of water bodies and constant movement of rocks and earth have injured many animals.  A group of Activists - NMIA Rescuers have been feeding the animals. Every day, they make their way to the site, walk through barren land and pick up stray dogs and cats who are often famished or injured. They feed these animals each and everyday. They also carry water to fill up the water bowls placed at the site. The total expenses for feeding and transport exceeds Rs 3000 per day! We no longer have the funds left to feed them.  It is the responsibility of the Government Body and the Contractors of this project to rehabilitate these animals. We are appealing CIDCO to build a Shelter for the animals affected by this project. Please sign this petition to save the animals at the NMIA site from starvation and death! To volunteer or donate for the feeding and rescue mission please contact Pooja Teli at 7208878300

Petition to Arklow Seabreeze Festival

End the Pig Race

I'm calling on the committee to once and for all end the cruel and frightening pig race, as in this day and age, this outdated and backward form of entertainment should be laid well and truly in the past.  Pigs are highly intelligent and sentient beings, with real fears. Forcing them to race in a crowd of baying people, is absurd and beyond cruel and is not 'Entertainment'. You can see the look of fear in the pigs every year and it's time to come into the 21st century and end this now. Arklow has shown it's progressive outlook toward ending animal abuse by supporting the ban on allowing any circus that uses exotic or wild animals from performing here, the pig race is not much removed from using animals for entertainment in an outdated and sinister way. We as people should know better and not support any form of animal abuse and this is clearly cruel. Some of the public may think it's funny, but I guarantee those pigs don't think so. Surely another alternative can be sought for cheers and laughs for the public without resorting to animal cruelty? No matter what 'care and attention' the pigs get from their owners during their upbringing and on the day itself, it does not remove the fact that the pigs are forced to run among noise and on hard ground, that can only be very disorientating and fearful for them. The ISPCA is on record for not supporting these events, as is the RSPCA as is anyone with an ounce of compassion or sense. If you feel strongly, that pigs should not be raced at the Arklow Seabreeze Festival this year and from now on, please sign this petition and share it. I am sure that public opinion will end this outdated and cruel practice. If you would like to contact the Arklow Seabreeze Festival committee directly it's info@arklowseabreezefestival.ie or catch them on Facebook under Arklow Seabreeze Festival 2017 or Arklow Seabreeze Festival, look for the most up to date post from them and that's your queue as to which page is currently active. Leave them a message there to show how disgraceful and unnecessary this event is..  My protest event page for 2018 is under this line, please come along if your'e in the Arklow area https://www.facebook.com/events/205804450224434/   Thank you.  Ciara Fitzgerald
