The Orsi Bill and the assassination of Animals and Nature! :'( [08 Mar 2009|10:26pm]

eleprue
[ mood | angry ]

Hello to everyone! ^_^
I am new here... I am Elena, I'm 27 years old and I live in Italy.
Unfortunately, here a lot of bad things are happening and all the animals who live here need your help!
Read and help us... I am desperate:

Nature is worthless. We would rather have concrete and double-barrelled shotguns in the hands of sixteen year olds, with which they can exterminate the last few wild animals that are still around. LIPU has examined the Orsi Bill and compared it to the current animal protection legislation. Franco Orsi of the PDL should call himself "Big Hunter" or "Son of Boss(ol)i". What we should be doing is organising patrols to check what our parliamentarians are getting up to. Day by day these guys are trying to make our lives more miserable.
Here is one of many e-mails I have received regarding the Orsi Bill.

"The Bill proposed by Senator Franco Orsi: an endless list of errors.
Out of the Senate, in recent days, has come one of the most serious attacks on Nature, in other words on animal, on our Parks and even on our own safety: a bill that calls for the total liberalisation of hunting. Signed by Senator Franco Orsi.
Animals used as decoys, hunting in our Parks, reduction of protected areas, the slaughter of bears, wolves and stray cats and dogs and many more vile deeds.
Law 157/1992, the only existing law that directly protects the wild fauna in our Parks, is about to be torn to shreds.

Here is the list of horrors:
- Gone are the national and international interests as regards the protection of animals. Italy has an irrefutable heritage, namely our wild animals, which he is apparently no longer interested in protecting!
- Gone is the definition of super-protected species. In Italy, animals such as the wolf, the bear, the eagles, the flamingos, the swans, the storks and many others, will no longer enjoy the special protection envisaged by the European Union and international regulations.
- Hunting season open along the migration routes, something that will undoubtedly create a major disturbance and will encourage poaching in areas that are very important in terms of the difficult voyage and essential stopovers undertaken by the migratory birds.
- Total liberalisation of rules regarding live decoys! Are you aware of precisely what live decoys are? They are live birds held “prisoner” in the tiniest of cages for the purpose of attracting other birds. This terrible practice is already permitted by the current legislation, albeit with certain restrictions. But Senator Orsi now wants to liberalise this practice totally. It will be possible to keep and use an unlimited number of these decoys. Gone will be the identification rings for live decoys. All that will be required is a certificate. One certificate for all of these decoys! Hunters will be able to use any species of birds as decoys, whether legal prey or not, even bramblings, chaffinches and redbreasts.
- 700 thousand taxidermists. The hunters themselves will automatically become taxidermists, without even having to follow any procedures. Animals killed and stuffed without any rules. How many poachers do you think are going to spring into action to illegally capture and stuff wild animals?
- Scientific research eliminated. The State’s own scientific authority (the “Istituto Nazionale per la Fauna Selvatica” or National Institute for Wild Fauna – currently known as the “ISPRA”) is at risk of being totally replaced by regional institutes. These regional institutes will thus be issuing opinions on national and European Union matters. Plus the very real possibility of not being able to carry out studies or research, or establish uniform standards valid throughout the Country.
- Open hunting season in our Parks, for currently protected species. The incredible formulation of the Orsi Bill will make it possible to get exemptions (in other words, to get permission to hunt otherwise protected species), even in our Parks and other protected areas! Regions that protect more than 30% of their regional territory will be penalised! How offensive is that ruling! Those who protect too much “Nature” will be punished. As if creating a park, where people and animals can move about freely, were a punishable crime!
- Hunting licences issued to 16-year olds. Instead of teaching our kids respect, we now give them rifles!
- Freedom to exterminate wolves, bears, deer, stray cats and dogs, etcetera! An incredible provision that gives the mayor the power to authorise the slaughter and extermination of animals, in total contradiction of even the most basic of European standards. All that is needed is that there is be “problem animal”. A veritable naturalistic “Wild West”.
- Regional legislation permitting the hunting of protected species. Apparently, four European Union infractions and two four European Union infractions Constitutional Court rulings were not enough. Senator Orsi is about to give the Veneto and Lombardy regions, or rather the Ultras of the hunting world, a gift, namely a chance to hunt protected species, and to do so using regional legislation. I suppose we will be forced to pay the European Union fines too!
- Hunting in the snow and ice. Hunting will be permitted even in the snow and ice, in other words, those times of the year when the animals have a very hard time finding food, refuge and heat.
Let me go back to the issue of using birds as decoys! How medieval is that! Owlets tied by their claws and wings and used as bait!
- Less control over hunting. Fauna and flora guards will no longer be able to carry out inspections! In a Country that has one of the highest rates of poaching in the whole of Europe, what does Senator Orsi go and do? He reduces controls over hunting!
- The “Ente Nazionale Protezione Animali” (National Animal Protection Body) chucked off the National Technical Committee. The number of environmental associations represented on the committee of 157 are reduced from four to three. “ENPA”, the historical Italian animal association, is completely excluded.
Circulate this document and register on the wild animal protection lists on the various blogs and on Facebook.
Let’s stop Italy from resorting to this type of barbarity. Nature is our life."

Animal Abuse in Ukraine [02 Nov 2007|07:07pm]

help_animal
www.MatesMaster.com friends and romance network, the site which is constantly involved in Animal Welfare programs, joins forces with Kiev City Society for the Protection of Animals in protest to the inhumane treatment of animals, abuse and cruelty in Ukraine.

About 156,000 stray cats and dogs are annually hurt, abused and killed in Ukrainian citiesand towns. When caught by the dog catchers, some stray animals are used forpainful experiments.
Stray dogs are often bludgeoned or put to death by electricity or caught using an inhumane poison and sometimes die slow, painful deaths. Instead of putting an animal to sleep with the use of euthanasia (i.e. the act of killing an animal painlessly), the animal service uses dithylinum (suxamethonium chloride), a poison which paralyzes the animal and causes it to die of suffocation in a few hours of agony. There is ample evidence that the poor creatures are still conscious and feel all the pain before they die. It is often the case that animals are beaten with legs and metal sticks, whereupon they are buried or burned alive.

Lots of people witnessed animals being tortured and murdered - little kittens tied up in plastic bags and thrown in the river, people intentionally run stray pets over with their cars, newly born puppies dumped on vacant land without their mother and left them to die.
Stories are endless and make hearts of every Human Being bleed.

Authorities of small Ukrainian communities for ever used and are still using different kind of poison - rat poison and recently they "discovered" a new method of killing stray animals - Isoniazidum (Tubazidum) anti-tuberculosis drug causing cheap, but very slow and painful death

Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act briefing [21 Mar 2007|01:49am]

mistressmelissa

Please call your representative and senators today and urge them to attend a briefing on the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA). If you recall, this bill passed last November and was signed into law in December.

The briefing will discuss issues of free speech and how the AETA now sets the stage for the criminalization of peaceful forms of advocacy undertaken by citizens and organizations seeking change. The briefing is organized by the Equal Justice Alliance and the Office of Rep. Tom Lantos of California. Speaking will be Heidi Boghosian, executive director of the National Lawyers Guild; Odette Wilkens, executive director of Equal Justice Alliance; Will Potter, freelance journalist; and possibly Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio. The briefing will take place on Wednesday, March 21, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in room 2255 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

Please, call your representative and senators today. Then, send a follow-up e-mail.

Forward this e-mail to your family and friends. Thank you, again, for urging your representative and senators to attend this important meeting. Feel free to contact me at kash@pcrm.org if you have any questions

INDYMEDIA VIDEOGRAPHER MURDERED BY MEXICAN PARAMILITARIES [03 Nov 2006|01:52pm]

prenna
On October 27th Bradley Will, a journalist, freedom fighter, musician, and anarchist was shot down and killed in cold blood, along with three other compañeros, by paramilitary officials employed by the Mexican Government.

He was shot at the barricades of Santa Lucia, in Oaxaca, Mexico, as an Indymedia reporter telling the story of the people’s resistance in Oaxaca. For over five months residents have occupied the streets in an attempt to oust the corrupt, brutal governor Ruiz, and achieve the dignity, freedom, and autonomy initially sought after by a brutally repressed teachers’ strike, crushed by the same regime.

To add insult to injury, Mexican President Vincente Fox is now using the tragedy of these deaths as an excuse to bring in federal forces, to restore “lawfulness.” We can only assume from the history of repression of the Zapatistas by Fox’s military, his recent threats to invade Oaxaca, and the fact that his own government is implicated in the murders, that Fox means to repress the rebellion.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

-Learn about the situation in Oaxaca (start at Indymedia)
-Participate in a virtual blockade of Mexican consulates simply by visiting blockade.crimethinc.net and leaving a web browser window open indefinitely
-Call your local Mexican Consulate and voice your opinion
-Print out and make copies of these flyers and post them everywhere
-Most importantly: Keep fighting, keep living, keep loving! Brad lived and died making this world a more livable, enjoyable, and just environment; let's keep the heat on and do everything in our power to make sure that lives lived for freedom aren't lives lived in vain.

Russia: The action against hypermarket "The world of fur and leather" has led to a conflict [24 Oct 2006|07:11pm]
know_now

March 22th, Moscow. About 30 activists fighting for animal rights entered all together the hypermarket "The world or fur and leather" near the metrostation "Sokolniki". They were carrying a transparency with an inscription on it "Leave fur for animals". The word fur was crossed out. Also they were distributing leaflets, shouting out slogans and talking about the real price of fur with a megaphone.

Some of the guards were trying to stop the activists, they snached the transparency out of their hands and started to turn the activists out of the hypermarket. As a result the defenders of fur-bearing animals left the shop themselves and stood outside it shouting out the slogans. First one of the customers or maybe even someone of those who worked in that shop was trying to run the activists over, but then he took a gas gun and began to shoot at activist's faces. In view of self-defence the activists used gas for neutralizing the agressive fur-lover.

Welcome to the September 2006 edition of Spirit of Freedom. First off I
would like to apologise for the delay in publishing this edition of the
newsletter. ELP has been awaiting the outcome of the USA-SHAC 7 sentencing
and, as a lot of people will be aware, the news is not good. So far the
sentences have been between 36 to 72 months imprisonment with two more
sentences due later on this month. ELP urges everyone to support the
USA-SHAC 7 and all the other eco-prisoners. Around the world people are
being jailed for standing up for what they believe in and their reward is
imprisonment. So please, no matter where you are in the world, please
support the eco-prisoners and no compromise in defence of Mother Earth!

Earth Liberation Front prisoner Jeff Leuers, who is currently serving a 22 years sentence for the arson of three SUV's, has recently been screwed over by prison authorities and has lost contact visits for one year even though he was found NOT guilty of smoking pot inside. Now more than ever I'd say he needs letters of support, not just that, he needs us out there continuing the fight.

Russia: 30 thousands minks released from fur farm [07 Sep 2006|05:24pm]

prenna
On the night before September 3, animal rights defenders overthrew the fence of fur farm "Pioneer" ("Severnaya Pushnina" holding, Luzhsky district, Leningradskaja oblast), opened the cells and released 30 thousands minks. The animals spread in the neighbourhood as far as 5 km away from the farm. Judging by the quantity of cells opened, no less than
10 people participated in the action. Public relations department of "Severnaya Pushnina" declared that they have grounds to suppose that the activists of Animal Liberation Front (ALF) are responsible. The damage to
the farm is estimated to 10 million roubles (~375.000 USD). Perhaps, the farm will not be able to rise up again after such a loss. The action is a serious strike for the whole Russian fur industry. Most of the released minks were of rare colour types. The selection has been performed for three years and it cannot be restored.

The general director of "Severnaya Pushnina" I.V. Parkalov says: "We hope this incident will not only be properly investigated, but also will pull more attention of administrative structures of Saint-Petersburg and the region towards the activity of such extremist nature-defending organizations".

The pesticide carbofuran is highly toxic to birds. In fact, just one granule of carbofuran is enough to kill a songbird.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is expected to rule on the fate of this deadly pesticide this week. Your efforts could decide whether this toxic pesticide stays on the market or not.

Please fill out this form to send your email urging EPA official James Gulliford to protect birds, fish and mammals by removing carbofuran from the market.

New ALF prisoners need support (x-posted all over) [11 May 2006|10:28pm]

prenna
Please get letters in the post to these compassionate people who have had their liberty stolen from their by this perverted society which sees fit to imprison those who go against the grain and try to make a difference to animals!


Jon Ablewhite, John Smith and Kerry Whitburn were sentenced to 12 years today at Nottingham Crown Court and Josephine Mayo to 4 years. The sentences are in relation to Newchurch Farm. Jon, John and Kerry are on their way back to HMP Nottingham - their prison numbers remain the same (details below).
Josephine is being taken to HMP Peterborough:
Josephine Mayo (new prisoner), HMP Peterborough, Saville Road, Westfield, Peterborough PE3 7PD.
We do not have her prison number at the moment.

It is vital to remember those who are currently incarcerated and ensure they receive as much support as possible. It is also vital to remember that we owe it to these brave people (but first and foremost to the animals) to get out there and make a difference to the animals! Demos are happening all the get out there and make a difference!!!

Alert, Updates, and Court Reportback from the recents arrests in Auburn, CA.
Zachary Jenson, Eric McDavid, and Lauren Weiner are being accused by the government of being members of the ELF


Please circulate widely-

Eric McDavid, Zachary Jenson and Lauren Weiner were arrested on Friday in Auburn, California and accused of "conspiring to damage or destroy by explosive or fire" cell phone towers, power plants and US Forest Service facilities. They are accused of being members of an Earth Liberation Front cell and are currently being held in the Sacramento County Main Jail.

We have been in contact with all three prisoners and they have all requested prisoner support, including: receiving letters, books and assistance in obtaining legal counsel. When writing to the prisoners, please do not discuss their cases at all. Any mail addressed improperly will not be delivered. Use their proper names and refrain from discussing issues related to their charges. Remember, all mail is opened and read by the government and can be used in court. Mailing instructions are below. Please follow them carefully or the prisoners will not receive what you send them. When sending literature please keep in mind the nature of the charges against them and do not send anything which could potentially be damaging to their case.

Eric would like books about new physics, philosophy, alternative health and yoga. Zachary would like non-fiction accounts of traveling and is also interested in personal ‘zines [ we do not know if ‘zines will get into the jail; for the best results have them sent through a publisher such as AK Press ]. Lauren would like books about prison issues and is interested in historical political prisoners.

We are asking that everyone wait until the prisoners and their lawyers have had an opportunity to develop defense strategies before organizing any activities on their behalf other than letter writing.

Lauren is severely lactose intolerant has requested nutritious vegan meals. She says she has not been able to get enough vegan protein. She would like people to call or write the jail and request that she be given nutritious vegan meals and be given access to the commissary, which she has so far been denied. She is currently in isolation and has only been allowed to leave her cell for visits and court. Zachary is vegetarian and would like people to call and/or write the jail and request that he be given vegetarian meals.

Please politely contact the Jail to request that they receive access to the commissary and meals that accomodate their diets:

Sacramento County Main Jail
651 I Street
Sacramento, CA 95814
916.874.6752

Initial Court Appearance Reportback:

The three defendants were read their charges, which (as of now) consist of a charge of conspiracy to damage or destroy public and private infrastructure by explosives or fire. This charge carries a sentence of 5-20 years in prison. The charges will be more clear when the indictment (a rubber stamp from a grand jury for the government to prosecute the case) is delivered and the charges become official. The criminal complaint was made available today; it indicates that the case is primarily based upon the testimony of a confidential informant who was paid by the FBI and 'embedded' within the alleged ELF cell. According to the criminal complaint this person has been an informant in 12 other 'anarchist cases' and has agreed to testify in open court.

Detention hearings have been set for Friday, Jan 20th for Lauren, and Tuesday, January 24th for both Eric and Zachary. These hearings will determine whether or not they will be eligible for bail. The US Attorney who is prosecuting the case, Ellen Endrizzi, did her best to demonize the three and create the illusion that if bailed out they would flee and put the public at risk. Lauren, Zachary and Eric are facing serious charges, but the rapid and caring response of their families and concerned supporters as well as their tenacious assertion of their rights are helping to give their cases a promising start.

Urgent prisoner support needed (x-posted around) [12 Sep 2005|04:38pm]

prenna
ELP has just learned that Earth/Animal Liberation remand prisoner, Chris McIntosh, is on hungerstrike. He started his hungerstrike on the 2nd of September 2005. Chris is a vegan and he is demanding soya or rice milk, fresh vegetables, a nutritional replacement to eggs, and peanut butter or tofu or tempeh. All of these demands are perfectly reasonable and something every vegan prisoner should be able to expect.

If you live in America please support Chris by phoning Seatac FDC on 206-870-5700 and demanding Chris is given proper vegan meals including soya milk, fresh vegetables, a nutritional egg replacement and either peanut butter or tofu or tempeh to eat.

If you live outside of America, please write letters o the prison
supporting Chris' demands. The prison address is: The Prison Governor, FDC Seatac, Federal Detention Center, P.O. BOX 13900 Seattle, WA 98198, USA.

Also help to keep Chris' morale high during his hungerstrike. Send urgent letters of support to:
