Petition to Taco Bell

Bring the Grilled Stuft Nacho back to Taco Bell

Fans and followers of Taco Bell, Inspired by the Beefy Crunch Movement and powered by our love for the Grilled Stuft Nacho, today we begin our movement to bring the Grilled Stuft Nacho back to Taco Bell. This movement will be aimed towards Taco Bell asking them to bring back a limited-time item we have seen twice in the past. Taco Bell has always used the fans and the consumers to figure out which limited-time items will be released and our plan is to use that to tell the company what we want. I ask all who enjoy Taco Bell to help in the effort to bring back this item. What is the Grilled Stuft Nacho?           The Grilled Stuft Nacho starts with a flour tortilla and is filled with seasoned beef, warm nacho cheese, zesty cheesy-jalapeno sauce, red tortilla strips, and sour cream. The tortilla is folded in the shape of a triangle to fit the shape of a large tortilla chip. When did Taco Bell serve the Grilled Stuft Nacho?           The Grilled Stuft Nacho has been released twice in Taco Bell limited-time offer history. (It is rare for an item to appear more than twice so this movement is important) The first time we've seen this as a LTO was December of 2013 and we last saw it May of 2015. I'd say we are due for another nationwide release. Why is this item so special?           I'm glad you asked. The key ingredient in the Grilled Stuft Nacho is the cheesy-jalapeno on the inside. This sauce has only ever been released with the Grilled Stuft Nacho and is indescribably delicious. The perfect mix of ingredients in the shape of a tortilla chip for the great deal of $1.49 each.  GOALS:           We are asking for Taco Bell to bring back the beloved Grilled Stuft Nacho as a limited-time item. To make this happen we need YOU, the fans, to tell Taco Bell that this is what you want. Sign the petition to help bring back our item!   Living Más website: www.LivingMas.com/movement Find us on social media as well and 'Like' Grilled Stuft Nacho Movement on facebook!

Kraft a Better BOCA and Ditch Dairy!

As a staple at cookouts, on camping trips, and on restaurant menus nationwide, Kraft Heinz’ BOCA brand has long been a household name at the forefront of the meatless market. But while other veggie burger brands have embraced the soaring demand for dairy-free dining in recent years, the majority of the BOCA burgers and bowls lining grocery store shelves still contain unhealthy, cruelly produced cow’s milk.In 2009, BOCA took a major, promising step forward by committing to dropping all eggs from its line after hearing from tens of thousands of consumers who were hungry for fully plant-based burgers through a campaign by Compassion Over Killing and other organizations. Yet today, although BOCA has recognized that “consumers are increasingly looking for plant-based options,” most of its meatless products contain cow’s milk. Join us in telling parent company Kraft Heinz that it’s time to ditch the dairy and make BOCA an all-vegan brand!At least 60 percent of adults worldwide can’t digest cow’s milk. Millions more are cutting out milk not only for their own health, but also for the environment and for animals, who, as a recent Compassion Over Killing investigative video exposed, suffer a systematic cycle of cruelty in the dairy industry. On factory farms, dairy cows are impregnated by artificial insemination year after year; each newborn calf is taken from them shortly after birth so their milk can be sold for humans; and when their exhausted bodies can no longer produce milk, these mother cows are sent to slaughter because they’re no longer considered profitable.As more and more Americans turn away from cow’s milk, dairy alternatives are flying off the shelves, with sales projected to reach $35 billion by 2024. To meet the meat-free, dairy-free demand, brands like Gardein, the Bill Gates-backed Beyond Meat, and Field Roast are already producing completely vegan burger lines, and even fast food giants like White Castle are dishing up plant-based patties. After hearing from consumers, meatless brand Lightlife also jumped aboard in 2017, announcing its transition to a 100% vegan line. If Lightlife can do it, why can’t BOCA?A new report by international restaurant consultants Baum+Whiteman has named plant-based dining as the 2018 trend of the year, citing factors like a 257% increase between 2012 and 2016 in vegan-labeled food and drink products at grocery stores. BOCA is falling behind in this plant-based revolution--but it can reposition itself as an industry leader in this rapidly growing market by dropping dairy for good.Join us today in telling Kraft Heinz that consumers are craving an all-vegan BOCA brand, and it’s time to ditch the dairy!

Petition to South Korean Government, President Moon Jae-In

President Moon Jae-In: Please stop the torture and consumption of dogs and cats in Korea.

Our goal is 200K signatures. Please sign and share for the Korean dogs and cats.  For more actions you can take please visit: http://koreandogs.org/president-moon-end-dmt/ Thank you!  Dear President Moon Jae-In and the South Korean Government, Please watch these videos: Shocking Cruelty of South Korean Dog Meat Industry http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q Documentary trailer: Man bites dog in South Korea https://youtu.be/9SKVdNrfIZo I am extremely upset about the torture and consumption of companion animals in South Korea.  With the ubiquity of social medias, every day we are seeing shocking and heartbreaking images and videos of innocent dogs being tortured and killed in your country. Even though Korea has established an Animal Protection Law for companion animals, dogs are still beaten, hung, electrocuted, and treated brutally by farmers and slaughters. Also, dogs and cats are still being beaten and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which do not have medical properties except in the minds of ignorant and gullible customers. These practices have no place in the modern world. Other Asian countries have banned the eating of dog meat and the cruel industry that goes with it, such as Taiwan and the Philippines. Why does Korea persist in lagging behind these countries and other civilized societies? It’s the responsibility of the Korean government to once and for all end the cruel dog meat and cat medicine industries in Korea. It is time to dismiss the childish myths and propaganda surrounding these industries and their vile products. It is time to leave behind backward and unnecessary traditions. And it is time for Korea to start taking animal welfare seriously and show that it really does have a compassionate and ethical society. That means it is time for the Korean government to start better educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering, about not abandoning pets, and about treating animals in a proper manner. Until these things are done, Korea’s reputation in the international community will continue to suffer. Its citizens will continue to face shame and embarrassment. And Korea will continue to be regarded as “third world,” despite its modernization and attempts at globalized thinking. From now on, I will boycott Korean products, and I will not support Korean companies or visit Korea until the abuse of cats and dogs has finally ended. Yours sincerely, [Korean] 문재인 대통령님과 대한민국정부에게: 잔인무도한 개, 고양이 식용을 즉각 중지해주세요! 다음의 동영상을 봐주시기 바랍니다. http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q https://youtu.be/9SKVdNrfIZo 저는 대한민국에서는 반려동물을 고문하고 잡아먹는다는 사실을 접하고 엄청난 충격을 받았습니다. 산재해 있는 소셜 미디어를 통해서 한국에 있는 아무런 죄 없는 개들이 고문 당하고 죽임 당하는 끔찍하고 가슴 아픈 장면이 담긴 사진과 동영상을 매순간 접하고 있습니다. 비록 한국이 반려동물에 대한 동물보호법을 제정했지만 개들은 여전히 개농장 주인과 도살업자에게 구타당하고, 목 매달리고, 감전되고, 잔인하게 취급 당하고 있습니다. 또 보약이라는 미명하에 아직도 개와 고양이를 산채로 끓는 물에 집어넣고 있습니다. 아무런 의학적 효과가 증명된 바 없음에도 불구하고 무지하고 잘 속아넘어가는 사람들은 여전히 효험이 있다고 믿고 있습니다. 이러한 관행은 오늘날 어디에서도 찾아볼 수 없는 일입니다. 대만이나 필리핀 같은 다른 아시아 국가들은 이미 개고기와 개고기 관련 산업을 금지시켰습니다. 한국이 왜 이러한 나라들이나 다른 문명 사회보다 뒤쳐진 채로 남아있는지 이해할 수가 없습니다. 한국에서 이 잔인하기 짝이 없는 개고기 산업과 고양이로 만든 보약 산업을 영원히 근절시키는 것은 대한민국 정부의 책임입니다. 이와 관련된 산업과 혐오식품을 둘러싼 어리석은 괴담과 주장을 떨쳐버릴 때입니다. 낙후되고 불필요한 전통은 과감히 버릴 때입니다. 그리고 동물복지 문제를 심각하게 받아들여서 한국 사회가 자비롭고 윤리적인 사회라는 것을 보여줄 때입니다. 즉, 한국 정부가 대중들에게 반려동물의 중성화의 중요성, 유기금지, 동물에 대한 적절한 취급에 대해 더 나은 교육을 시작할 때라는 뜻입니다. 그렇지 않으면 한국은 국제사회에서 계속해서 나쁜 평판을 이어가게 될 것입니다. 한국 국민들 역시 수치와 곤란함을 겪게 될 겁니다. 한국이 근대화되었고 국제화된 사고를 도입하려 함에도 불구하고 여전히 “제3세계 후진국가”로 인식될 것입니다. 저는 개와 고양이에 대한 학대가 한국에서 완전히 사라지기 전까지 한국 제품을 구매하지 않을 것이고 한국 회사를 이용하거나 한국을 방문하지 않을 것입니다. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- For the translation of this petition in Spanish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Hungarian, visit: http://koreandogs.org/what-you-can-do/contacts-for-protest/sample-protest-letter/

Petition to Tyson Foods, Tom Hayes, Justin Whitmore, Doug Ramsey, Scott Rouse, Gary Mickelson

Tyson Foods: Stop Crippling Birds with Rapid Growth!

Poultry industry titan Tyson Foods has long touted its “Commitment to Animal Well-Being” and claims to “understand the importance of the internationally-recognized Five Freedoms” for chickens. Yet from the moment I first set foot inside Atlantic Farm, a Tyson Foods contract facility in Temperanceville, Virginia, as an undercover investigator for Compassion Over Killing (COK), I witnessed a very different reality: Behind the closed doors of this factory farm’s filthy warehouses, packed with more than 225,000 chickens, I documented violent animal abuse as well as horrific suffering caused by Tyson’s genetic manipulation of birds for unnaturally fast growth. At just days old, fragile baby birds are dumped into these sheds, where they live out their short lives—never to peck outside in the dirt or feel the sun’s warmth—before being shipped out to slaughter at just 6 weeks old. The hidden horrors I witnessed inside this massive Tyson factory farm still haunt me: birds run over and crushed to death by forklifts; live birds violently kicked, slammed, and thrown; and baby chicks impaled with a metal nail on the end of a pipe. Unwanted, sick, or injured birds were also piled on top of one another in buckets with the dead, left to languish and die. But the suffering ran even deeper than this sickening abuse. Birds languished from a variety of illnesses and deformities, and many couldn’t walk because of debilitating leg injuries. At under two months old, these baby birds were already crippled—and trapped inside their own morbidly obese bodies—because Tyson genetically manipulates them to grow so unnaturally large, extremely quickly. If you or I grew at the rate of a factory farmed chicken, we’d weigh 660 pounds by the time we reached two months of age!This is the second time in a year and a half that COK has exposed Tyson’s torture. In 2016, a COK investigation inside multiple Tyson Foods breeder farms in Virginia revealed similar violence: workers punching, kicking, and throwing live birds; birds crushed by forklifts; and more. The footage prompted the first-ever court trials for cruelty to chickens raised for meat, resulting in convictions on 24 counts of animal cruelty. And Tyson immediately ended the barbaric practice of stabbing a plastic nose “bone” through the nostrils of rapidly growing male breeder birds to restrict their feed intake. Yet while Tyson pats itself on the back for its “commitment to serve as stewards of the animals,” this poultry giant has not addressed a major source of this immense suffering: the crippling fast-paced growth of birds. Tyson publicly strives to “shape the future of food”—but it remains firmly entrenched in this tradition of torture to churn out cheap, cruelly produced meat. Meanwhile, millions of consumers are waking up to the suffering and flocking to plant-based dining. Even Tyson CEO Tom Hayes has acknowledged that consumer demand for plant proteins is outpacing that of meat, and the company has purchased a 5 percent stake in vegan company Beyond Meat. But that first step isn’t enough. It’s way past time for Tyson to distance itself from these preventable atrocities once and for all.Join me in urging Tyson to put an end to the genetic manipulation of birds for fast growth and to truly become a food industry leader by moving toward the real future of food: plant-based protein! In solidarity, “Alex” (Compassion Over Killing undercover investigator) December 2017 UPDATE: Just a day after my investigation was publicly released and we asked you to urge Tyson to invest more in plant-based meat, the company announced that it's doing just that: The poultry giant is increasing its existing 5-percent stake in plant protein maker Beyond Meat. This is a promising step forward, but we still need your support to ensure the company keeps moving in this direction—and finally addresses the horrific suffering resulting from its genetic manipulation of birds for rapid growth.
