  • Mi sento unicamente una "Cittadina del Mondo"
    figlia, madre, amica, compagna, donna...
    Ho viaggiato lungo rotte conosciute ed altre ignote, per lavoro ma anche per curiosità o solo per il desiderio di scoprire nuovi luoghi!
    L'esperienza a contatto con altri popoli, religioni e culture, mi ha insegnato a venerare Madre Natura ed ogni forma di vita che ci conduce a valutare precetti inconfutabili, ma che purtroppo troppi ignorano nel più assoluto egoismo.
    Vi apro le porte del mio mondo virtuale... seguitemi lungo l'itinerante scorrer d'acqua lasciando traccia di vissuto.

  • What to say about Claudine? She is passionate about living a present, balanced and authentic life, with a healthy dose of humor! She loves to travel the world, explore new places, people and food, but equally loves to retreat into silent solitude. She is a writer who follows a hidden path, into an unfamiliar world. If you just surrender and go with her on her eerie journey, you will find that you have surrendered to enchantment, as if in a voluptuous and fantastic dream. She makes you believe everything she sees in her fantasy and dreams. But as well you take a journey to the frozen mountain peaks of the north of Europe, to the crowded sweating streets of Mexico or Africa. Her characters are wonderfully real and wholly believable perfectly situated in her richly textured prose. She’s a lovely person and she writes with exquisite powers of description! She’s simply great! R. McKelley

    Chi è Claudine? Lei è appassionata nel vivere al presente una vita equilibrata e autentica, con una sana dose di humour! Ama viaggiare per il mondo, esplorare nuovi luoghi, persone e cibo, ma ugualmente ama ritirarsi in solitudine, nel silenzio. E' una scrittrice che segue un sentiero nascosto, verso un mondo sconosciuto. Se solo vi arrendete e andate con lei in questa spettacolare avventura, realizzerete che vi siete confidati all’incantevole, come in un sogno fantastico ed avvolgente. Vi farà credere ad ogni cosa che lei vede nei suoi stessi sogni e fantasie. Ma inizierete anche un viaggio verso le cime ghiacciate del nord Europa, verso le strade affollate del Messico o Africa. I protagonisti sono magnificamente reali e totalmente credibili stupendamente inseriti nella ricca trama di prosa. E’ una “grande” persona e scrive con uno squisito potere descrittivo. E’ semplicemente magnifica.

Animal trade for medicine purpose?

Post taken from:   Serbian Animals Voice (SAV)   &   venus2407 World Animals Voice

 

mistreated bear caged tiger

Who heard their scream, thinks of children’s voices. Fear of death, wounding and desperate children’s voices. Collarbears release these terrible screams twice a day. If they still have the strength.

Bile juice is taken twice a day in an unbearable procedure.

For this purpose, the farmers of the Chinese bear farms put a catheter through the abdominal wall into the gallbladder. Through this pipe, a tube without anesthesia is introduced directly into the organ. It is considered as “human” to dispense with the catheter and to drip the juice from a stomach opening operatively connected directly to the bile. So that the animal does not tear the pipe or the tube from the inflamed wound, it is fixed in a steel corset and permanently damned to complete immobility.

TCM: Body and Capital in Balance = The truth: Animal Torture is our capital balance!

If one searches in Google for the term TCM, one finds purposely little information.
Because just and thanks to the Internet, the public has become smarter about the charlatanism of some unscrupulous Chinese and Germans, and does not believe in this mafia business.

Quote from the web page of TCM:

“TCM Pharmatrade GmbH & Co. KG is a pharmaceutical company founded in 2018 that supplies the entire European market via wholesale and its own mail order pharmacy. Its unique selling point is the possession of German and in future also European approvals for Chinese medicine and nutritional supplements with origins in traditional Chinese medicine.” https://tcm-pharmatrade.de/unternehmen/

And…“We – the HH-SH TCM Center GmbH – operate the TCM center in Hamburg (Germany) to show you traditional Chinese medicine. We combine tradition with the latest science and technology!!” https://www.tcmshanghai.de/das-unternehmen/

enchained tiger

If there were no more market for such products, this industry would no longer be profitable and would end the exploitation of the animals.
But… the law of the Chinese government waits in vain. The culprit is the Association for Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)!
After the State Council’s Resource and Environmental Policy Research Institute (DRCSC) had presented a report that clearly indicated that bear products should expire by 2035 and be replaced with non-animal substitutes, TCM companies even demanded an apology!!!

However, TCM companies continue to insist on bear bile, selling it as a millennia-old tradition. Thus, the bears continue to be held in cruel imprisonment, crammed into wire cages, where they have to endure the daily ordeal of the bile-tap.

Paradox! Although the media reported years ago on this cruel act in the name of Chinese medicine, the more China is focused on economic recovery, the lower it has become.

China became Germany’s most important trading partner for the first time last year. China replaced the US.

Profit from animal welfare. Because it does not only affect the bears who have to suffer, but also tigers.

Bear and tiger farm animal husbandry: suffering for Traditional Chinese Medicine.

In the wild, the tigers are almost extinct, but it is believed that about 5,000 tigers are being held on Chinese farms – in dirty cages, where they are starving. The adage: only skin and bones, means to the tigers that this is the time when they are mercilessly killed. Once they were majestic creatures, their fur then served as a jewel in some houses of rich Chinese, while the bones have to serve for wine.

In recent years, there has been more and more evidence that China also wants to improve its image in the world public in terms of environmental protection and animal welfare. For example, animal testing has been banned and money invested to find alternative substances for bear bile.
But also the new law allows the survival of China’s bear bile farms and 200 tiger farms. On farms, tigers are bred on a grand scale to make tiger-bark wine and other binge elixirs. According to a report by the Environmental Research Agency EIA, thousands of tigers are bred and then slaughtered. Because the demand for such products is increasing, there are illegal farms or poaching, with bears as well as tigers.

Venus comment All this is supported by criminal politics. Everyone seems to have an employment pact with China.

Merkel and her EU Coalition partner have become the slaughterhouse of China. They accept unconditional meat, fur and products from tortured animals.
The politicians do not stop other politicians or governments, on the contrary! there is a permanent, grand coalition in politics  of all parties and directions, when it comes to animals: it consists of animal tormentors, meat lovers, fur friends, circus with wild animal friends , hunter friends and corrupt journalism.

Last but not least, one of them is a disinterested, superstitious population increasingly victim to the criminal animal industry, and with its boundless stupidity and infantilism, promotes criminal animal trade.   My best regards, Venus

Claudine Comment: Isn’t the first time I read or hear about such political involvement in “dirty business”. The animal trade mafia is a cancer difficult to (catch) and cure, since protected by politician and Multinational enterprises. What is behind that? Thirst for money, greed, the pursuit of absolute power!
Until we won’t be able to catch eachone involved into it, more likely things will only get worst.
What about the hunting permission in African’s national reserves? And what about the permission of legal hunt of “endagered species” (because of stupid pretexts) even in civilised country like Switzerland (but the list is extremely long)? And let’s not forget the poachers, scattered across the whole surface of the planet. Over here, in my little country, I’m following with interest the “bad wolf” or “man’s killer bear” which are to be hunted down and killed since they scare the peaceful sleep of some ignorant paesan who think, that they are mean and dangerous…
Back to TCM, it’s trivial nonsense at the cubic, atavic stupidity making people believe that bear’s bile juice or tiger parts are making (sorry writing this in a crude way) man’s penis work better! Still, I do hope that not all the TCM therapist are using these ingredients into their concoctions.
Nature gives us such wonderful gifts, free of charge, but humans are destroing everything… leaving for the future generation only an awfull sight.

Me and my teddy bear * c’era una volta Orsetto

kid_teddy_bear

More than half a century ago, I made the acquaintance of “Teddy Bear”, the faithful friend that still accompanies me in my sleep and dreams!
My confession may seem a bit misplaced but I’m sure that many of my readers have special
and sweet memories  linked to the existence of a particular stuffed animal
From an early age children receive as a gift stuffed animals of many different materials. In the countries of the southern hemisphere, maybe the kids do not have the privilege of holding
and cuddle in their arms  “pelusches” but sometimes they do share their lives in close contact with the animals, the real ones, in flesh and blood.

This post could embrace many themes, but this time I linger to that one of education and awareness raising. We adults have the responsibility to instruct the children to look with love and respect the animals and nature in which we live. This could be the most important education so that growing up and becoming adults, respect and veneration of nature can remain steady and lead to meaningful actions, always aimed at the protection of one and the other. Planet Earth is our home unfortunately we all know what is happening and, paradoxically, this is irreversible.

Unfortunately many times the right education is not there and these children take the example from the adults who grow them, they follow the actions of the society in which they live, their priorities are then dictated by external conditions while their childish purity is changed to satisfy impositions and social policies in which they grow and become adults.
The baby with the sweet and affectionate temperament, following the examples that despite himself is to observe living in a not respectful
society, turns and becomes a conditioned being at times violent whose actions harm flora and fauna.

How can we bring changes? It’s not too late to save the situation? Firmly I believe that we can overturn the situation, but we must change our paradigms, break away from the archetypes followed by our ancestors we must look to nature and animals with greater respect, we must be aware of every action and each reaction that it can cause.
Certainly the ongoing wars, the follies dictated by research hegemonic power (in the name of a god or of the economy), will be contained and here is up to each one of us to try to limit this tsunami which appears invincible.
But we shall take action right now, we have to take position immediately, we need to support the referendum and help organizations that have memorable purposes, honest and without interest. I support many NGO’s campaigns in support of animals, sometimes an email may save the life of a living creature… even a little money can be used to support these associations.
The choice is yours!

Più di mezzo secolo orsono feci conoscenza di “Orsetto”, l’amico fedelissimo che ancora oggi mi accompagna nel sonno e nei sogni!
La mia potrà sembrarvi una confessione un po’ fuori posto… ma sono sicura che molti tra i miei lettori hanno memorie speciali e dolci collegate all’esistenza di un particolare animale di pezza…
Fin dalla più tenera età i bambini ricevono in regalo animali imbottiti dei più disparati materiali. Nei paesi del sud del mondo, forse i bimbi non hanno il privilegio di stringere tra le braccia e coccolare dei pelusches ma a volte condividono la loro esistenza a strettissimo contatto con gli animali, quelli veri, in carne ed ossa.

Questo post potrebbe abbracciare molte tematiche,  ma questa volta mi soffermo su quella dell’istruzione e sensibilizzazione. Siamo noi adulti ad avere la responsabilità di istruire i fanciulli a considerare con amore e rispetto gli animali e la natura nella quale viviamo. Questo potrebbe essere la più importante istruzione affinché crescendo e diventando adulti, il rispetto e venerazione della natura possa resare saldo e condurli ad azioni sensate, sempre rivolte alla protezione degli uni e degli altri. Il Pianeta Terra è la nostra casa… purtroppo sappiamo tutti cosa sta accadendo e paradossalmente ciò è irreversibile.
Purtroppo molte volte la giusta istruzione non c’è e questi fanciulli prendono l’esempio dagli adulti che li crescono, seguono le azioni della società nella quale vivono, le loro priorità sono quindi dettate da condizioni esterne mentre la loro purezza infantile si modifica per appagare le imposizioni sociali e politiche nelle quali crescono e diventano adulti.
Il bimbo dall’indole dolce e affettuosa, seguendo gli esempi che suo malgrado si trova ad osservare vivendo in una società irrispettevole, si tramuta e diventa un essere condizionato a volte violento le cui azioni danneggiano flora e fauna.

Come possiamo portare dei cambiamenti? Non è troppo tardi per salvare il salvabile? Fermamente credo che possiamo stravolgere la situazione, ma bisogna modificare i nostri paradigmi, staccarci dagli archetipi seguiti dai nostri avi… guardare alla natura e animali con maggiore rispetto, dobbiamo essere consapevoli di ogni azione e di ogni reazione che essa può causare.
Certamente le guerre in corso, le follie dettate dalla ricerca egemonica del potere (in nome di un dio o dell’economia), dovranno essere contenute… e qui, spetta ad ogni singolo cercare di arginare questo tsunami che appare invincibile.

Ma dobbiamo prendere posizione immediatamente, dobbiamo sostenere referendum e aiutare le organizzazioni che hanno scopi memorabili, onesti e senza interessi personali. Personalmente sostengo molte campagne di ONG a sostegno degli animali, a volte un e-mail può salvare la vita di un animale… anche pochi soldi possono servire per sostenere queste associazioni.
A voi la scelta!
