Let’s stop the slaughtering of poor marine animals before there’s none left to save

By:

Genesis Acevedo New York, NY

 

The issue that is being address in this petition is the mass slaughtering of dolphins and small whales in the cove of Japan (Taiji) during hunting season. These animals are chased down into the harbor for fishermen can slaughter or capture these poor animals. If they do not slaughter these dolphins in that moment then they starve them until they are ready to be killed. In addition, if they do not kill them at all then the result is just capturing them in order to sell them off to marine parks and make a profit. Fishermen focus on selecting dolphins and selling them into captivity. About 111 dolphins are held captive and dead/released dolphins do not count as part of the Japan Fisheries Agency Quotas. In result, these innocent marine animals are not being protected under these poor regulations. Its very important because these poor animals are suffering in the hands of selfish people.
They do not deserve any type of abuse for our entertainment nor to make a profit. I am petitioning the Japanese government more specially the cove in Taij where the dolphin slaughter takes place and the Fisheries Agency. It is wrong to slaughter these poor animals for our own selfish reasons. They just use these poor animals for profit and to sell into multiple marine parks in Japan and overseas. They chase them down into the cove and brutally slaughter these animals for their own selfish gain. Not only are they hurting these animals but they are also destroying our environment by eliminating the amount of marine animals in the ocean by a mass margin.
I am specifically asking the Japanese government and the Fisheries Agency to set more quotas and regulations in order to stop the slaughtering and selling of these marine animals. Their quotas are not being regulated nor are they protecting these poor innocent animals. Their quotas is just a big joke when it comes to the survival and protection for these many small whales and dolphins. I am asking them to ban and stop seasonal hunting completely. Furthermore, I am asking them to stop using these animals for profit and just let them live their lives in peace. #Leavethedolphinsalone #nomorebloodocean #letthedolphinslive #survival
This petition will be delivered to:
  • Japan Fisheries Agency
  • japanese government

Gas chambers have no place in our animal shelters

Gas chambers have no place in our animal shelters.

By: Caitlin Halliday Kaysville, UT

Nobody wants to put a pet to sleep. The process is heartbreaking, even in the best and most loving of circumstances. At least we can take solace in how fast and peaceful euthanasia by injection (EBI) can be. If injected with the proper drugs, an animal will lose consciousness within 3-5 seconds. This is why the vast majority of shelters use EBI. It is by far the most humane way to end an animal’s life.

But Utah is one of just seven states that continue to use gas chambers for this purpose, for inexplicable reasons.Unlike with EBI, animals euthanized by gas chamber can take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes to die, and they are often still conscious, terrified and distressed. Multiple animals are often placed in these metal boxes at once, and they strike at each other out of fear.

The Humane Society of the U.S. and every other major animal welfare group have condemned the use of these gas chambers, calling them cruel, inhumane, torturous, and archaic. There are fewer than three dozen U.S. shelters still employing them, and Utah has seven of them. Sadly, a bill that would have banned them just failed in the Utah House of Representatives.

We must reach out to our representatives and let them know that we will not stand for inhumane animal euthanasia. Cruel gas chambers have no place in our state’s shelters, and we must demand that they shut them down now.

EBI is as cost-effective, if not more so, than the gas chamber, so the financial argument that some representatives made holds no water. Some pointed to worker safety as a reason to keep using gas chambers — no cases have ever been reported of a shelter worker dying due to an accidental needle stick with EBI; however, there have been human injuries, deaths and explosions due to gas chamber use.

The lawmakers who argued against this bill did not do their homework. There is no reason to continue the use of this horrifying equipment, and we owe it to Utah’s pets to continue to fight on their behalf.

All animals deserve the kindness and dignity of EBI in their last moments of life. Please sign this petition telling the Utah representatives responsible for the failure of this bill that they did not represent the people with their vote.

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Utah State House
  • Utah State Senate

How toxic is your makeup?

Many countries have made the ethical and right decision to ban the sale of ANY cosmetics that have tested on animals!! Cheers to India, The European Union and Israel!hqdefault

In this post we will be focusing on makeup brands to BAN!! Not only because these companies that test on animals  treat these poor creatures like they are just an object and don’t pay attention to the amount of pin and suffering they have to go through but because most likely the makeup you are putting on your face is also KILLING your face too!  Did you know that if you have been using Eyeliner, mascara, nail polish, eye shadow, brush-on-brow, lipstick, blushers, rouge, makeup, and foundation ALSO many hair care products, soap, lotions and more,  you are subject to Cancer and Organ system Toxicity according to www.safecosmetics.org “Experimental studies in female rats found increased incidence of lung tumors in rats that inhaled carbon black.” if any of the products listed above are being used by you, a friend, family member or whomever make SURE to check that they do NOT have these chemicals in them- Carbon black, D & C Black No. 2, acetylene black, channel black, furnace black, lamp black, and thermal black Coal Tar Solution, Coal, Tar, Carbo-Cort, Coal Tar Solution USP, Crude Coal Tar, Estar, Impervotar, KC 261, Lavatar, Picis Carbonis, Naphtha, High Solvent Naphtha, Naphtha DIstillate, Benzin B70, Petroleum Benzin.- These all have CARBON BLACK  and COAL TARin them!

So what exactly is Carbon Black?

Carbon black is the product of incomplete combustion of carbon-containing materials s a material produced by the incomplete combustion of heavy petroleum products such as FCC tar, coal tarethylene cracking tar, and a small amount from vegetable oil.  Literally putting tar on your eyes, eyelashes, skin and nails etc.  The color Pigment from Carbon Black is used for food packaging too and in some countries it is put in microvable containers. Carbon black also hurt the environment immensely! how horrible!Chemicals-in-beauty-products

Luckily the use of Carbon Black in makeup in the USA and European Union is banned but still many countries use it.Carbon_black

 

Be sure to check any shampoos you have that are for dandruff, ecsema, psorais Coal Tar is alos  linked to higher rates of cancer in beauticians and hairdressers.

 

The Greed of Exxon and the Destruction of Our Environment

Exxon is the biggest oil company on this earth.

CRB91RtWEAQnDPa

 

As we all know the world is going through climate change and global warming right now along with many other problems YET did you know that  before people beileved it.  In the 1970s, 80s and 90s  EXXON MOBIL oil and gas company knew that our earth was at stake by the scientists that worked with them confirming it there was proof 40 years ago that Climate change was for sure a real problem and it was caused by humans and mainly the burning of fossil fuels as stated here from an article from the guardian

 

  • By 1978 Exxon’s senior scientists were telling top management that climate change was real, caused by man, and would raise global temperatures by 2-3C this century, which was pretty much spot-on.

la-exxon-arctic-gallery-20151007-008

Yet, Exxon never  put it out there that the earth is heating up and  didn’t  let  climatologists and many other people convince policymakers and politicians leaving it to themselves and if the issue of climate change was brought up Exxon would bash it like it is an absurd idea. As stated here 

 

  • And by the early 1990s their researchers studying the possibility for new exploration in the Arctic were well aware that human-induced climate change was melting the poles. Indeed, they used that knowledge to plan their strategy, reporting that soon the Beaufort Sea would be ice-free as much as five months a year instead of the historic two. Greenhouse gases are rising “due to the burning of fossil fuels,” a key Exxon researcher told an audience of engineers at a conference in 1991. “Nobody disputes this fact.”  exxon-arctic

Instead they used it for there own good by proposing to  drill massive holes into the arctic which they ended up doing and now polar bears and many animals are dying and houses and roads in Alaska are  buckling from permafrost thaw.

Exxon still continues to drill for fossil fuels and was part of one of the biggest lies ever. Exxon had the opportunity to fix Climate change and get a head start, if the public knew what Exxon selfishly hoarded to themselves for greed and money our planet would not be how it is today. Our planet might actually be fine yet Exxon mobil decided to kill it.

FACTORY FARMING. WHAT IS IT?? (from my petition)

Hey everyone. Please take a quick look and sign my petition to BAN FACTORY FARMING IN CALIFORNIA

 CK4bsy1UsAAgGhL

 

https://www.change.org/p/diane-feinstein-ban-factory-farming-in-california

Warning: graphic pictures below of these poor helpless animals:(  . credit from google imgs.

If you didn’t know factory farming is the confinement of animals in tight rooms, boxes, metal crates, wire cages the list can go on. They get barely any water and fake/processed antibiotic food. Then they are given no space so they can’t sit or lie down so these poor pigs and cows are standing constantly crammed next to each other with sharp metal wire right up next to them too. It also hurts the environment and causes pollution.

With minimal to no access to air These helpless animals are also fed antibiotics that makes them produce more milk/eggs and changes the way their body functions that some chickens die from being overgrown. Then they get transported to a slaughterhouse without food or water and get dragged/ have their throats slit while still alive and conscious. This is just one version of what goes on behind those walls and i can’t live happily knowing that these animals NEED our help.imgres

PLEASE sign this it will change our state and we would influence other states to do the same.  These Animals should not have to deal with this stand with me to make a difference, we will fight this and to whomever signs this YOU may be the reason why farm factory will be banned! dairy-farm

Before you drink that glass of milk think of the torture that mother cow had to go through its baby didnt even get its own mommys breast milk. They were teared apart from each other the mothers are FORCED into giving birth. Its basically raping cows. HORRIBLE.

Farm factoring isn’t even considered an issue on the white houses website, lets change this. More people need to be aware and know whe re theirmeat is coming from and how. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
