Free to A ‚Good Home?‘
In the haunting case of “Puppy Doe,” a sadistic man acquired a pit bull though a “free to good home” ad on Craigslist.

 

The next time anyone saw the puppy, she was near death on the streets — starved, beaten and stabbed in both eyes, with her nose burned and her tongue sliced in two.

 

Puppy Doe did not survive the brutality; and Craigslist did not stop allowing pets to be offered on the site, for free or for a “homing fee.” Since this case, dogs obtained on Craigslist have been decapitated, burned alive and used as target practice.

TAKE ACTION

 

Sign this petition to urge Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster to cease all animal trade on his website at once — before any more dogs, cats, rabbits or other creatures are tortured and killed.

Stop the mass slaughter of ravens in Scotland!

Mass culling of ravens is set to go ahead in Scotland. We must say NO to the slaughter of this protected species.

 

 

Sign Now

 

 

 

Ravens are beautiful, intelligent and sociable birds. After being common in Scotland in the 19th century, they were driven to the brink of extinction as a result of persecution by gamekeepers and farmers. They’re now a protected species.

So why has Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) now given gamekeepers a licence to kill 300 ravens?

Raptor Persecution Scotland say, „gamekeepers have long wanted ravens to be added to the General Licence because they are seen as a perceived threat to grouse stocks. Ravens are [also] routinely demonised in the press. However, this latest licence authorising a multi-year mass culling of ravens over a large area for spurious reasons (and apparently very little, if any, scientific justification) is unprecedented. That it also happens to be a well-known raptor persecution hotspot just adds to the lunacy of this situation.“

Please sign the Care2 petition to urge SNH to withdraw the licence.

Thank you,

P.S. Well-known conservationist Chris Packham has written to SNH to urge them to reverse their decision. Will you take action too and sign the petition?

 

 

 

 

 

Justin Trudeau

 
 
Tomorrow, Canadian Indigenous leaders are heading to the Kinder Morgan annual shareholder meeting to stop a massive pipeline through their land. Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has the power to side with First Nations peoples and stop this project.

Let’s tell Prime Minister Trudeau the whole world is watching.

 Sign the Petition 

Tomorrow, a brave group of Canadian Indigenous leaders are heading to a pipeline company’s annual shareholder meeting to stop a dangerous multi-billion dollar tar sands and tanker project from being built.

Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline threatens the climate, water, Indigenous rights, and local communities — yet the Canadian government led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said it is literally willing to do just about anything to get this project builtincluding offering the company a multi-billion dollar bailout. 

Right now, we need to send a global message to Canada’s Prime Minister that he can’t trample Indigenous rights, human rights and our climate without a fight. Prime Minister Trudeau has the power to side with First Nations and stop this project. And he is highly vulnerable to public pressure. That means that if we can raise international outrage now, we could help stop this project.

We’re heading to Kinder Morgan’s AGM tomorrow. Will you please tell Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to stop Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline?

Kinder Morgan got permission from the Canadian government to drill through a mountain, cross countless streams, put at-risk species in danger all in the name of corporate profit. And in the past couple of months, nearly 200 people have been arrested crossing police lines on Burnaby Mountain on Canada’s West Coast, including Indigenous leaders, grandparents, faith leaders, and artists.

And now, some land defenders and water protectors face criminal charges for their brave work protecting the land, water, and our climate.

Justin Trudeau was elected on a platform of action on climate and the recognition of the rights of Indigenous peoples, including the implementation of the UN Declaration on the Right of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). Lining the pockets of reckless fossil fuel corporations was not in the party manifesto.

First Nations who have lived off the land since time immemorial have said the Kinder Morgan’s tar sands and tanker project cannot be built. And without their free, prior and informed consent, this project cannot go ahead. Those living along the project route know that it is not a question of if the pipeline will spill, but when.

There is no way that Kinder Morgan can mitigate the damage to the orca population off the coast of Vancouver if this project is built: they will literally go extinct. 

The need to stop this project goes beyond national borders, and is a question of climate justice. By 2100, there will be 200 million climate refugees because shortsighted governments keep approving projects like this one.

With the spotlight on this project right now just one day before the AGM, let’s remind Trudeau the whole world is watching.

Tell Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to stop Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline.

SumOfUs members around the world like you have supported the fight to stop Kinder Morgan for years. You’ve signed petitions, chipped in to fund Indigenous legal battles to stop this project, helped fund radio and billboard ads, petition deliveries, and you’ve helped get Indigenous leaders to meetings with investors. You’ve proven time and again that there is global solidarity to stop this project — and that people power works.

Jetzt gegen das sinnlose Töten unterzeichnen!

Das grausame Kükentöten muss aufhören! Um den Newsletter online zu lesen,
klicken Sie bitte hier .
 
Sie sind geboren, um zu sterben: Millionen männliche Küken von Legehennenrassen werden kurz nach dem Schlüpfen getötet –  aus rein wirtschaftlichen Gründen. Schon die letzte Große Koalition hatte das Ziel ausgegeben: Es soll Schluss sein mit der grausamen Praxis. Auch im neuen Koalitionsvertrag findet sich das Ziel. Doch die Bundesregierung musste nun sogar zugeben, dass 2017 eine Million Küken mehr (!) getötet wurden als noch im Jahr zuvor. Wir fordern: Die neue Bundesregierung muss endlich wirklich Schluss machen mit Kükentöten! Zudem muss auf lange Sicht die krankmachende Hochleistungszucht beendet werden!

 

Hier protestieren!

 

Hallo und guten Tag, Peter Herrmann,

etwa 45 Millionen (!) Küken, gerade aus dem Ei geschlüpft, werden auf grausame Weise getötet – Jahr für Jahr, allein in Deutschland. Eine unfassbare Zahl. In der Regel werden die kleinen Tiere mit Kohlendioxid vergast.

Die Praxis des Kükentötens ist Standard in der Eierproduktion – bei konventionellen Betrieben ebenso wie bei ökologischen Eiererzeugern. Denn „moderne“ Legehennen sind auf maximale Legeleistung gezüchtet – sie setzen aber viel zu wenig Fleisch an, als dass die männlichen Küken wirtschaftlich aufgezogen werden könnten. Deshalb werden Sie einfach aussortiert: Geboren, um zu sterben. Mit Tierschutz hat all dies nichts zu tun.

Die gute Nachricht ist: Die Bundesregierung hat das Thema auf der Agenda. Im Koalitionsvertrag heißt es: „Das Töten von Eintagsküken werden wir bis zur Mitte der Legislaturperiode beenden.“ Doch wir haben Grund zur Skepsis. Denn auch die letzte Große Koalition hat Ähnliches versprochen. Schon 2015 sagte Frau Klöckners Vorgänger Christian Schmidt: „Mein Ziel ist es, dass das Kükenschreddern 2017 aufhört.“ Immer wieder betonte er, er wolle das Kükentöten „schnellstmöglich“ beenden.

Aber was ist passiert? Gerade erst musste die Bundesregierung zugeben: 2017 wurden in Deutschland sogar noch einmal eine Million mehr Küken getötet als im Jahr zuvor! Und das Töten geht bis heute weiter. Deshalb fordern wir: Keine weiteren Ausflüchte, die Bundesregierung muss ihr Versprechen halten und Schluss machen mit dem millionenfachen Kükentod – diesmal wirklich! Unterzeichnen Sie hier unsere E-Mail-Aktion:

 

Schluss mit Kükentöten!

 

Ein Verbot des Kükentötens ist ein wichtiger, aber gleichzeitig nur ein kleiner Schritt. Denn dass wir überhaupt männliche Küken aussortieren, ist Ergebnis einer fatalen Hochleistungszucht. Legehennen-Rassen wurden – anders als Masthühner – dahingehend „optimiert“, dass sie immer mehr Eier legen. Sie setzen aber kaum noch Fleisch an – die Erzeugerbetriebe können die männlichen Küken daher nicht rentabel als Masthähnchen vermarkten.

Doch die vermeintlichen Zuchterfolge sind auch für die Legehennen ein riesiges Problem: Hohe Sterblichkeitsraten, Knochenbrüche und Brustbeinschäden infolge einer zu geringen Knochenfestigkeit, Eileiterentzündungen, eine große Anfälligkeit für Infektionskrankheiten – Legehennen leiden auch deshalb, weil sie darauf gezüchtet wurden, immer noch mehr Eier legen zu können.

Es reicht daher nicht aus, „nur“ das Kükentöten zu beenden. Wir müssen die Ursachen der Probleme in der Tierhaltung bekämpfen, nicht allein die Symptome. Das heißt: Auf lange Sicht muss die einseitige Hochleistungszucht beendet werden. Würden nur die gesundheitlich robusten Zweinutzungs-Hühner eingesetzt, müssten die Tiere unter weniger Krankheiten leiden und die Hahnenküken wären keine Ausschussware mehr! Helfen Sie mit und unterzeichnen Sie jetzt unseren Appell an Landwirtschaftsministerin Julia Klöckner:

 

Protestaktion an Ministerin Klöckner unterzeichnen!
