I did not watch the video, I could not bring myself to do that so if you do not want to watch the video please just send an email to the district attorney of Fulton County GA who will not investigate the cruelty being carried out on these poor animals. We need to shout as loud as we can to ensure this company is closed down, please take a minute to add your own personal comments at the front of the email. Thank You Guys.

As you may recall, video footage obtained in a PETA undercover investigation earlier this year revealed disturbing living and dying conditions for hamsters and other animals at Sun Pet Ltd., a wholesale animal dealer that supplies animals to PETCO and PetSmart stores.

PETA is now able to release to the public more graphic footage and photos from this undercover investigation. View the never-before-seen photos and video footage from the investigation now.

Animals at Sun Pet were confined to dark, extremely crowded containers that were like tombs. They were forced to eat, sleep, urinate, and defecate all in the same cramped space. PETA’s investigator also recorded the violent killing and abusive handling of hundreds of animals. While training PETA’s investigator, Sun Pet’s supervisor said of mice, “You could throw them against the wall and they’ll stand back up again and keep on running.”

Shockingly, Paul L. Howard Jr., the district attorney of Fulton County, Ga., has yet to file cruelty-to-animals charges against anyone in the case, including the worker who put live hamsters in a bag and bashed the bag against a table in an attempt to kill the animals inside—which left at least one animal panting and suffering for several minutes. Despite the disturbing video footage captured at Sun Pet, PETA has received information indicating that Howard has instructed his office to halt its investigation of animal suffering at the facility.

Please view the horrific video footage and just-released photos from the investigation and then tell Howard to investigate and file suitable cruelty-to-animals charges against the worker caught bashing hamsters against a table and all others responsible for the suffering of animals at Sun Pet. Ask Howard what constitutes cruelty to animals if not bagging them up, bashing them against a table, and then leaving them to suffer and die slowly from the trauma and injuries.

Thank you for your compassion and continued action for the pet trade’s animal victims.

Sincerely,

Chemtrails and Sylphs

I’ve been meaning to write this for some time but it was only two weeks ago that I downloaded the photos from my phone. Back in March/April 2010, I took some photos at work around 7am as I noticed chemtrails in the sky and they showed something very interesting.

First in March 2010, I noticed the following:

Chemtrails over London Heathrow - March 2010

Nothing unusual as we have all been seeing these over the past few years – parallel chemtrails. Despite a concerted effort by us all, Governments have denied that they exist and that they are in fact contrails. However, lets look at the next photos.

Chemtrails over London Heathrow - April 2010

In April 2010, I noticed another plane leaving a chemtrail at the same location – however, I noticed that despite the chemtrail, it was also leaving a contrail behind. This was taken at 8:04am.

Chemtrails over London Heathrow - April 2010

I took another photo 1 minute later – this was taken at 8:05am, check out the area highlighted by the red arrow – it shows the contrail disappearing, leaving the chemtrail in the sky.  Do not believe our Governments when they tell us that chemtrails are in fact contrails – they are not, they are different as the photos above prove. Whoever it is, they have been spraying chemicals from the back of aircraft for many years and have been lying to us about their existence and why. We watched a documentary recently, cannot remember the name, and they showed how chemtrails have made it into advertising and TV, whether drama programmes or adverts (including animated) – no doubt to get us used to and not question the chemtrail existence.

For more info, check out the other Chemtrails post on our blog and check out our Chembuster build post.

Now there has been much talk about Sylphs and how they clean the air for us being as they are, elementals. Check out the following photo:

Sylph over Farnborough, Hampshire

I took this photo in September 2009 and didn’t look at the photo until recently. I was leaving work and noticed a chemtrail and to my amazement, I noticed a Sylph attacking it ! Now I work some 25 miles away from home and as I travelled home, this was in the sky all the time. Only when I got home did I realise that the Sylph was attacking the chemtrail over our house, no doubt encouraged to do so by our Chembuster.  When I viewed this photo normal size, I could not make out the sylph but when I viewed it as a thumbnail, I could clearly see it – as kids, we saw the wind in this image – two eyes, a nose and his mouth open blowing the wind. Since that image has been around for maybe hundreds of years, our ancestors must have known and tried to share their knowledge about the elementals with us.

Yes I know there will be some of you who say we will see faces in clouds or anything we look at but can you not see the face in this photo?

In our opinion, Sylphs exist and are here to help.

Still spraying chemtrails – thought there was a recession

We posted when a change of government took place in the UK that there were no chemtrails since the conservatives and liberals took over…well it seems that, that was just a settling in period and we were hoping with the so called ‘recession’ that the government would not be able to continue with the spraying on two grounds, one a moral, the other financial …seems that this government along with the last one does not have a moral issue with spraying the people and on a financial level..they seem to have reserved enough coffers to pay for these planes to spray continually throughout the day and night everyday weather permitting!!!…Do you remember a clear sunny day? Please remind me, cos when you look at movies or tv programs or look up the chemtrails  are everywhere…on tv and movies they are subliminally showing us that this is a normal sky when it is clearly not.   We have only recently found out that the sun contributes to wind patterns and as the governments of the world are so not ending the spraying even in a recession you have to ask what are they doing this for?…are they in receipt of knowledge regarding the sun and solar winds that they are trying to shield the earth from, or is it population control, if its population control that means that they and their families are also breathing in this air…all we can say is there are changes that are clearly recorded in history about a time of change due in 2012 and we can also say more and more people are getting sick!

Thanks

End the Brutal Killing of More Than 20,000 Dolphins Every Year in Japan

In The Cove, a team of activists and filmmakers infiltrate a heavily-guarded cove in Taiji, Japan. In this remote village they witness and document activities deliberately being hidden from the public: More than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises are being slaughtered each year and their meat, containing toxic levels of mercury, is being sold as food in Japan, often times labeled as whale meat.

The majority of the world is not aware this is happening. The Taiji cove is blocked off from the public. Cameras are not allowed inside and the media does not cover the story. It’s critical that we get the word out in Japan. Once the Japanese people know we believe they will demand change.

Send a letter to President Obama, Vice President Biden and Japanese Ambassador to the United States Ichiro Fujisaki urging them to address this issue. Everyone who signs the letter will be able to have their name displayed in a widget that will be posted on top social networks, web sites and blogs in Japan. The widget will link to actions people there can take to make a difference.In The Cove, a team of activists and filmmakers infiltrate a heavily-guarded cove in Taiji, Japan.

Killing whales for profit has been banned since 1986 — but that’s about to change unless we make a stand.

The International Whaling Commission (IWC) just released a new plan that would overturn the global ban on commercial whaling, and even open a whale sanctuary near Antarctica for hunting.

A final decision could happen as soon as next month, and Germany has a key role in the IWC’s decision — please write the German Federal Ministry for Agriculture and stop the sell out of the whales »

Japan, Norway and Iceland have continued to hunt whales in defiance of the worldwide commercial whaling ban. The proposed plan would make their hunts legal again.

A decision on the plan to resume killing whales could come as soon as next month!

Please take action to save the whales »

Thanks for making a difference!

Don’t Resume
Killing Whales
»
Protect kids from drowning.
Take Action!

Dear friends,

On Thursday, a proposal will be unveiled that would legalize commercial whale hunting for the first time in 24 years.

The fate of the proposal will be determined largely by the world’s immediate reactions to it — and according to insiders, many governments are planning to stand aside and allow commercial whaling to resume. An outcry is needed now to ensure they stand strong to save the whales.

Avaaz has launched a last-moment petition to show our leaders their people want to protect whales, not hunt, kill, and sell them. The petition will be sent to the delegates to the International Whaling Commission every time we raise another 100,000 signatures — sign here and forward this message:

http://www.avaaz.org/en/whales_under_threat/98.php?CLICKTF

A strong international consensus has opposed whaling for decades — but for just as long, Japan, Norway, and Iceland have continued to hunt whales, ignoring the global ban on whaling or exploiting a loophole by claiming their expeditions were “scientific research.” Now they could be rewarded by a “compromise” proposal, in which their commercial whaling would be made legal.

Worse still, a number of other countries are watching the process closely — with rumored plans to start their own whaling programs if the proposal goes through. If Japan, Norway, and Iceland can hunt whales and sell their meat, others will ask “if them, why not us?”

It’s time to save the whales — again. Click HERE and forward this message to oppose the legalization of commercial whale hunting:

Forty years ago, whales were on the brink of extinction. But thanks to a global social movement, the world banned commercial whaling in 1986. The ban is one of the environmental movement’s great triumphs. (More info on the ban HERE)

Today, whales still face many threats: not just the whalers’ harpoons, but also climate change, destruction of ecosystems by overfishing and pollution, and nets intended for other fish. A renewed wave of commercial whaling could devastate these extraordinarily intelligent and social cousins of humanity. This is no time to move backwards.

With hope,

Ben, Ricken, Paula, Iain, David, Luis, and the whole Avaaz team

Background on the 1986 international moratorium on whaling:

The most recent public draft of the IWC compromise proposal that is currently being updated:

An AFP article describing the state of whaling negotiations last week:

According to Greenpeace, this deal would permit whaling even in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary (So much for it being a “place of refuge or safety” !!)

As it is – there is no-one enforcing the ban in the Sanctuary apart from International Volunteers such as Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. I suggest you watch Animal Planets Whale Wars to see exactly how these volunteers are risking their lives to enforce the safety of the whales.

It’s outrageous that the United States is wanting to be a part of legalising this awful industry. We need to stop this greedy action.

Take action here Obama, Say No to commericial whaling.

Latin American NGOs Speak Out Against Whaling

Alongside the negotiations for a “compromise” within the negotiations about the Future of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) 40 environmental NGOs jointly presented a petition to all Latin governments Member of the IWC. They call for diplomatic actions to end scientific whaling in the Antarctica by the Japanese fleet.

Vanesa Tossenberger, executive director of the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society (WDCS) Latin America, stated that “the negotiation process has to be clear and not diminish the strong and permanent commitment Latin American countries with the moratorium on commercial whaling. We strongly support the non lethal used for the cetacean and with this the ending of the ‘scientific whaling’ operation. With this letter we continue present our position and our strong refuse to all activities that are not regulated and that are conducted without any mechanisms of control in the different waters.”

While among the Latin American countries some have in the past been sympathetic to support Japanese whaling activities, the region has teamed up as unified block since a few years and speak out jointly against the lethal use of whales.

Jewish Voice For Peace in The Middle East – Please read and add your voice

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

Digg This  Reddit This  Stumble Now!  Buzz This  Share on Facebook  Bookmark this on Delicious  Share on LinkedIn  Post on Twitter  Google Buzz (aka. Google Reader)  

Jewish Voice for Peace are a group of people who are working together to bring peace to the Middle East to Jewish, Muslim and Arabic communities and are working with like minded people all over the world both Jewish and non Jewish. We are all brothers and sisters that deserve the right to live in harmony. Who are shouting loudly to the USA and Israeli governments to say no more killing, not in our name.

You can visit their website and be part of a growing number of people putting pressure on governments and companies to end the violence. www.jewishvoiceforpeace.org


Their Mission Statement
Jewish Voice for Peace members are inspired by Jewish tradition to work together for peace, social justice, equality, human rights, respect for international law, and a U.S. foreign policy based on these ideals.  JVP opposes anti-Jewish, anti-Muslim, and anti-Arab bigotry and oppression.  JVP seeks an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem; security and self-determination for Israelis and Palestinians; a just solution for Palestinian refugees based on principles established in international law; an end to violence against civilians; and peace and justice for all peoples of the Middle East.

Our Political Platform
Jewish Voice for Peace is a diverse and democratic community of activists inspired by Jewish tradition to work together for peace, social justice, and human rights. We support the aspirations of Israelis and Palestinians for security and self-determination.

We seek:

  • A U.S. foreign policy based on promoting peace, democracy, human rights, and respect
    for international law
  • An end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem
  • A resolution of the Palestinian refugee problem consistent with international law and equity
  • An end to all violence against civilians
  • Peace among the peoples of the Middle East

We are among the many American Jews who say to the U.S. and Israeli governments: “Not in our names!”

JVP supports peace activists in Palestine and Israel, and works in broad coalition with other Jewish, Arab-American, faith-based, peace and social justice organizations.

FOR A CHANGE IN U.S. POLICY
Jewish Voice for Peace calls for a U.S. foreign policy that promotes democracy and human rights.  The United States must stop supporting repressive policies in Israel and elsewhere. U.S. military aid to countries in the Middle East must be based on rigorous enforcement of the Arms Export Control and Foreign Assistance Acts, which mandate that military aid may be used for only defensive purposes within the recipient country’s borders, and that aid may not be delivered to countries that abuse human rights.
Under these guidelines, U.S. military aid to Israel must be suspended until the occupation ends, since the occupation itself is in violation of these guidelines. Military aid allows Israel to avoid making serious efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as well as conflicts with its other neighbors.  It enables the occupation, contributes to the devastation of Palestinian society and fosters the increasing militarization of Israeli society.
JVP also calls for suspension of military aid to other human rights abusers and occupiers in the Middle East. This aid helps prop up autocratic and repressive regimes, promotes violations of human rights and international law, obstructs democratic movements, prolongs the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and fosters militarism and violence at home and abroad.

FOR PALESTINIAN-ISRAELI PEACE
Israelis and Palestinians have the right to security, sovereignty, and self-determination within political entities of their own choosing.
Israel must end its occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem, completely withdraw from these Occupied Territories and relinquish all its settlements, military outposts and by-pass roads.
Jerusalem has to be shared in a manner that reflects its spiritual, economic, and political importance to both Israelis and Palestinians, as well as to all Jews, Muslims and Christians.
The plight of Palestinian refugees needs to be resolved equitably and in a manner that promotes peace and is consistent with international law. Within the framework of an equitable agreement, the refugees should have a role in determining their future, whether pursuing return, resettlement, or financial compensation. Israel should recognize its share of responsibility for the ongoing refugee crisis and for its resolution.
The parties must equitably distribute water and other natural resources.
Diplomatic negotiations between the two parties must be held unconditionally. Countries other than the U.S. should be involved in peace negotiations. An international peacekeeping force should be established to protect all civilians.


FOR HUMAN RIGHTS
All people of the Middle East deserve the right to democratic participation and equality within their societies, regardless of religion, ethnicity, culture, national origin, language, race, sex, gender, sexual orientation, or other status.
Israel must cease its use of military force against Palestinian civilians, including attacks involving American-supplied F-16s and Apache helicopters. Moreover, Israel must stop land seizures; destruction of homes, infrastructure, orchards and farms; arbitrary arrests and imprisonment; torture; assassinations; expulsions; curfews; travel restrictions; abuse at checkpoints; raids; collective punishment; and other violations of human rights.
Palestinians must stop suicide bombings and other attacks on Israeli civilians.
The international community must support Palestinian efforts to promote democracy and human rights, while understanding that this aim cannot be fully achieved under occupation.
Racism and bigotry cannot be tolerated, whether in the U.S. or abroad, whether against Arabs or against Jews.


I remember listening to my great aunt Tante Babe’s heartbreaking stories of seeing her young cousin killed during an attack on thousands of Jews, a pogrom, in her city of Bialystok. That infamous pogrom was in 1906, the very year the American Jewish Committee was founded to oppose such attacks.

Feeling alone and unprotected, our family needed the American Jewish Committee. Years later, I remember my parents supporting the Anti-Defamation League because of their support for Jewish refuseniks in the USSR.

And then there’s my grandfather who endured the extermination of most of his family at the hands of Nazis. He is why I greeted with enthusiasm the emergence of a human rights group in the 1970s named after Simon Wiesenthal, the famous Nazi hunter.

These Jewish organizations came into existence at a time when my family – and so many others – needed them desperately, and their contributions and achievements on behalf of Jews and non-Jews made me proud.

But times have changed, and the missions of these groups have changed. All too often, advocacy for universal human rights has taken a back seat to their belief that they must support the Israeli government unconditionally.

For example, as I write this, it has been 22 days since Israeli citizen and human rights activist Ameer Makhoul was brutally taken from his home in the middle of the night, held without charges, denied a lawyer for 12 days, and most certainly tortured. All under cover of an Israeli media gag order. Regardless of the charges against him, which were only announced today, it is hard to imagine these groups remaining silent in the face of such outrageous repression in a modern democracy. Especially against an Israeli citizen.

Yet they say nothing.

The pattern is not new.

It is painful for me to say that today these organizations – organizations with such a proud history of civil and human rights – for many of us have come to stand for the exact opposite. Sadly, I now find myself opposed to the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League, and the Simon Wiesenthal Center for dismissing criticism of Israel as anti-Semitic, for putting Israeli foreign policy above Armenian genocide recognition, for vilifying Muslims and Arabs, and for building a “Museum of Tolerance” on top of a Muslim cemetery in Jerusalem.

For many people, these organizations have not been relevant for a long time. You might be one of them. But we also know they continue to be an important voice for many Jewish people.  And we will always need Jews to be safe. That’s why we must ask them to change just as so many Jews in America have changed.

My dad is one of those people who supported the Anti-Defamation League. But when I told him the role they played in silencing criticism when it comes to Israel, he literally tore in half a donation check he had planned to send.

I’m not asking you to go that far. But whether you love them or hate them, we have to call on them to change.

We don’t expect them to fall in line with everything you and I support, but we expect them to at least have a line when it comes to basic human rights and dignity. Please join me in asking the leaders of the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League, and the Simon Wiesenthal Center to denounce the increasing government-sponsored violence in Israel and Palestine. As Jews and non-Jewish allies who believe in universal human rights, we all have a right to demand that they speak out.

Because they have the ear of Israeli leaders, we believe their denunciation of anti-democratic measures can make a difference where Israelis and Palestinians are suffering the most.

Just last week, Peter Beinart suggested in his significant piece in the New York Review of Books that the greatest danger to the Jewish community today is not from outside, but from inside.

Beinart was referring to the increasing disconnect of Jewish leaders from Jewish people, especially young people, when it comes to Israel and Palestine. Their ongoing unconditional support of Israel’s actions, even when they violate the basic tenets of Judaism and democratic values, has become untenable.

Israel’s violations of human rights and dignity are increasing each day with:

Midnight raids on activists, including Palestinians, Israeli citizens, and internationals

Media gag orders, which keep the Israeli press from being able to write about these arrests

Crushing non-violent protests by the Israeli Army, using rubber bullets, tear gas, and even live ammunition to put down protests

Silencing NGO’s who report on these outrages, using restrictive legislation in the Israeli Knesset.

Banning internationals who are insufficiently supportive of Israel.

And through all of this, Jewish leaders remain silent.

Enough is enough.

It has been decades since the first Palestinian refugees were barred from returning to their homes. It’s time our community leaders reflected our values and did as much to combat oppression when it is practiced by Jews as when it practiced against us.

Please sign our letter urging the leaders of three major human rights organizations–Abe Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League, David Harris of the American Jewish Committee, and Rabbi Marvin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center– to speak out against these crimes.          http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/301/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=3889
