Environment or economy?

“If you really think the environment is less important than the economy, try holding your breath while you count your money.”

– Dr. Guy McPherson

Gratulerer til alle dyrene som nå slipper unødig lidelse

Gratulerer til alle dyrene som nå slipper lidelse pga forbud mot salg, produksjon og markedsføring av kosmetikk som er testet på dyr!

Tusen takk til NOAH (http://www.dyrsrettigheter.no/ og http://www.facebook.com/dyrsrettigheter) for den utrolige innsatsen NOAH har gjort gjennom mange år for å bidra til at dette nå blir gjennomført!

Vær med å hindre store ødeleggelser i Ecuador

January 25, 2013 Leave a comment

Det utkjempes nå en drakamp i Ecuador mellom oljeselskaper som ønsker storstilt oljeutbygging i sårbare naturområder i et stort naturreservat og sårbare befolkninger som også bor i og nær området. Naturødeleggelser vil være en enorm trussel for både mennesker, planter og dyr.

Ønsker du også å være med å hindre ødeleggelse av Ecuador, kan du støtte denne underskriftsaksjonen på Avaaz.

Se mer om dette på engelsk nedenfor:

Dear friends,

Ecuador’s Sani Isla Kichwa people have asked for our help to stop the government turning their forest home into an oil field. A massive scandal in the global media challenging President Correa to act on his environmental principles could persuade him to pull back and stop the Amazon oil rush. Sign the petition now:

There is one area of the Ecuadorian Amazon that is so pristine that the whole ecosystem has been preserved and even jaguars roam free! But the government is now threatening to go in and drill for oil.

The local indigenous people have been resisting, but they are afraid that oil companies will break up the community with bribes. When they heard that people across the world might stand with them and make a stink to save their land, they were thrilled. The president of Ecuador claims to stand for indigenous rights and the environment, but he has just come up with a new plan to bring oil speculators in to 4 million hectares of jungle. If we can say ‘wait a minute, you’re supposed to be the green president who says no one can buy Ecuador’, we could expose him for turning his back on his commitments just as he is fighting for re-election.

He doesn’t want a PR nightmare right now. If we get a million of us to help this one community defend their ancestral land and challenge the president openly to keep to his word, we could start a media storm that would make him reconsider the whole plan. Sign the petition now and tell everyone — let’s help save this beautiful forest:

After Texaco and other oil companies polluted Ecuadorian waters and irreversibly devastated precious ecosystems, Correa led his country to be the world’s first nation to recognize the rights of “Mother Earth” in its constitution. He announced Ecuador was not for sale, and in Yasuni National Park promoted an innovative initiative where other governments pay Ecuador to keep oil in the ground to protect the rainforest rather than destroy it. But now he’s on the verge of selling out.

Shockingly, the Sani Isla Kichwa land is partly in Yasuni National Park. But even more shocking is Correa’s bigger plan — in days government officials begin a world tour to offer foreign investors the right to drill across 4 million hectares of forest (an area larger than the Netherlands!) Ecuador, as any country, may argue it has the right to profit from its natural resources, but the constitution itself says it must respect indigenous rights and its amazing forests, which bring millions in tourist dollars every year.

Right now, Correa is in a tough fight to win a second term as president. It’s the perfect time to make him honour his environmental promises and make this green constitution come to life. Sign now to stand with the Kichwa people and save their forest:

http://www.avaaz.org/en/oil_in_the_amazon_8/?bRyKtbb&v=21318

Our community has fought year after year to protect the Amazon in Brazil and Bolivia, and won many victories standing in solidarity with indigenous communities. Now it’s Ecuador’s turn — let’s respond to this urgent call for action and save their forest.

With hope and determination,

Alex, Pedro, Alice, Laura, Marie, Ricken, Taylor, Morgan and all the Avaaz team

We urge you to protect the Amazon from the devastation of oil exploitation. It is a serious threat to this pristine habitat and the survival of Ecuador’s indigenous people, who are struggling to resist the oil companies and hold onto their lands. We call on you to uphold Ecuador’s inspiring Constitution.”

Gratulerer til Palestina med etterlengtet annerkjennelse

November 29, 2012 Leave a comment

Folket i Palestina har gjennom lang tid lidd tungt. Nå har Palestina søkt om anerkjennelse som stat med observatørstatus i FN. Med støtte for dette fra 138 mot 9 medlemsland er det en historisk dag for det palestinske folk som nå vil ha større muligheter til å kunne få diplomatisk hjelp for å hindre undertrykking, eller som Palestina’s president Mahmoud Abbas sa, “Your support will send a promising message to millions of Palestinians… that justice is possible, and that there is a reason to be hopeful, and that the peoples of the world do not accept the occupation. Your support for our endeavor today will give a reason to hope.

Gratulerer til Palestina som FN medlem (medlemsland nr 194) med ønske om fred og rettferdighet!
