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

STOP the mass murder of 10,000 camels in Australia

From Wednesday, 8th January 2020, professional shooters from helicopters will shoot and kill more than 10,000 camels, after an order from Aboriginal leaders in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara lands (AYP) region of Australia. First, these humans imported some camels in Australia, then left them in the wild to breed themselves for decades, and since the bushfires in Australia have started now, these humans needed someone on whom they can point at. Yes, they found these camels responsible for the bushfires, and these camels cannot protest for which they are held responsible. Some chief executive of carbon farming specialist said, 'one million feral camels emitting the effect of a tonne of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year, an equivalent of an additional 400,000 petrol cars on the road.' One fact I want to add is that each human being emits the equivalent of approximately 2 tonnes of  CO2 per year. So, how much CO2 do 7 billion people on earth emit? That's roughly 2.8 billion cars on road. (If each car emit 5 tonnes of CO2 each year). So, is this a valid reason to kill those camels? Absolutely not. One day when there will be nothing else for humans to kill, we will end up having killing ourself. So it can never be a valid reason to kill more than 10,000 camels. In the deadliest attack till now, i.e., 9/11 (on World Trade Centre), nearly 3000 humans died. That's tragic. Imagine how much 10,000 camels are. It's humongous. Humans have not found any other solution other than this to rectify climate control. And the authorities are thinking that killing 10,000 camels will stop the bushfires, and they will never happen again. It's stupidity.  Those camels can be relocated somewhere or can be sold to other countries, or birth control methods may be used to control the population. Has science only progressed in the warfare sector, for taking lives? Why science is not used to save lives instead? Or it is just the human lust, be it gas chambers, nuclear bombing, shooting, etc., to prove that humans are the most powerful and most superior. Superiority doesn't come via this way. It comes by showing empathy to all other creatures and growing together. Humans have evolved most advanced, not to diminish other creatures. We evolved most superiorly so that we can take care of other creatures. These camels too have a family, like us. They too want to live. They too feel pain. They too fear death. This mass murder must be stopped.   References https://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm/Killing_10,000_Camels https://www.epa.gov/greenvehicles/greenhouse-gas-emissions-typical-passenger-vehicle https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/11/how-much-CO2-one-human-emits-per-year.htm
