  • 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.

Still we have time? * Quanto tempo ci resta?

I do not think we should be animalist or naturalist to realize something is wrong.
But it’s too easy to turn your face, pretending not to see the tragedy of the facts.
We went far beyond the imaginable.
Movies like these that I want to show you are the proof that there is no longer time for us to hesitate in the hope that something changes without personally intervening.
We can no longer just limit ourselves to blame the others, the system, the politicians, the Dominants …
We have to react. We. Immediately. Now.

You may share these links with your friends, on wordpress or FB… that’s a good start!

Non credo si debba essere animalisti o naturalisti per accorgersi che qualcosa non va.
Ma è troppo facile voltare la faccia, facendo finta di non vedere la tragicità dei fatti.
Siamo andati ben oltre l’immaginabile.
Filmati come questi che desidero mostrarvi, sono la dimostrazione che non vi è più tempo per crogiolarci nella speranza che qualcosa cambi senza intervenire personalmente.
Non possiamo più solo limitarci a dare la colpa agli altri, al sistema, ai politici, ai Dominanti…
Dobbiamo reagire. Noi. Subito. Ora.

The truth you do not want to know! * La verità che non vuoi conoscere!

Since a long time, I decided not to eat meat… why? The movie shows you… it’s a matter of ethics, of morality… I do not want to be part of this cruelty. You can also decide once and for all to be a “cruelty-free” human. It’s a matter of choice, with the brain and the heart. 


…oOo…

Da molto tempo ho deciso di non mangiare nessun  tipo di carne… perché? Il film te lo mostra… è una questione di etica, di moralità… non voglio essere parte di questa crudeltà. Puoi anche tu decidere una volta per tutte di essere un “essere umano privo di crudeltà”. È una questione di scelta, con il cervello e con il cuore.

Once upon a time a Little Red Riding Hood… * C’era una volta Cappuccetto rosso…

Unfortunately, the story teaches: they yells “to the wolf, to the wolf” and then people victimise this poor animal, so defamed and hated because of the facts (real or inflamed) that have been put to the fore for elitist and propaganda purposes.

Now, even the WWF is up in the net of those pointing the finger, without trying to see beyond the barrel of a rifle that would be the only way to clear up the big predator’s return to Ticino.
Unfortunately, even in the neighboring Italy, poachers are at work, instigated for what?
WWF Italia confirms that poaching is also widespread in the parks (protected areas), where every year more than 300 wolves die because of man, and in essence 1 wolf per 2 dies at the hands of poachers.

And this, despite the fact that the results of the scientific researches have long since revealed that the wolf’s profile is very different from the “wicked wolf” of the stories and legends.
Will it be possible to promote a truly peaceful coexistence between man and wolf?
Well, if we consider the ineptity of certain characters, there still a lot of information to do!

And here we go again. For months, all headlines of Ticino newspapers are devoting pages of articles, sometimes explicit and objective, sometimes (unfortunately) one-sided and without considering each element.
I am not an insider, I state it to you and I put emphasis on it, but a bit of common sense I think should be considered before raging and inflicting against on an international association that cares about the safeguard of our planet.

The right information is the basis for good coexistence: for this reason, it is vital for children to get close to the right information’s and for this reason, WWF Switzerland with its 40 year old Pandamobil is in working on the territory carrying out its activities of “environmental education”. Growing up, these children will have a culture that is very different from their parents and will take care of the environment.

What the press rarely touches is “the other face of the coin”: the wolf plays its role as a natural selector, controlling the size of the populations of its prey and removing the carcasses of those dead animals for natural causes.
The wolf is an animal with a complex and structured social behavior with extraordinary senses and great ability to move and adaptation. He lives in pack of 2-7 individuals, the pack is a family unit hunting, breeding the offspring and defending the territory. It is a dodgy and intelligent animal, so difficult to spot in nature.

So let’s dislodge the Little Red Riding Hood story, becoming clever and open-minded adults: it’s time to look for smart solutions, spreading sheep breeding practices that take due account of predators.

Sfortunatamente, la storia insegna: si sbraita “al lupo al lupo” e  poi la gente se la prende con questo povero animale, così diffamato e odiato a causa dei fatti (reali o gonfiati) che sono stati messi alla ribalta per scopi elitari e propagandistici.

Ora, anche il WWF è finito nella rete di chi punta il dito, senza cercare di vedere oltre la canna di un fucile che per loro sarebbe l’unico modo per liquidare la faccenda del ritorno del grande predatore sul suolo Ticinese.
Purtroppo anche nella vicina Italia i bracconieri sono all’opera, istigati da cosa?
Il WWF Italia conferma che il bracconaggio è diffuso anche nei Parchi (zone protette), dove ogni anno oltre 300 lupi muoiono a causa dell’uomo, e in sostanza 1 lupo su 2 muore per mano dei bracconieri.

E questo malgrado che i risultati di ricerche scientifiche abbiano da tempo rivelato che il profilo del lupo è assai diverso dal “malvagio lupo” delle storie e leggende.
Sarà possibile promuovere una convivenza davvero pacifica tra uomo e lupo?
Beh, se consideriamo l’inettitudine di certi personaggi, di lavoro d’informazione se ne dovrà ancora fare parecchio!

E ci risiamo. È da mesi che tutte le testate ticinesi stanno dedicando paginate di articoli, a volte esplicativi e oggettivi, a volte (purtroppo) a senso unico e senza considerare ogni elemento.
Non sono un’addetta ai lavori, premetto e vi pongo l’accento, ma un po’ di buonsenso ritengo dovrebbe essere preso in considerazione prima di partire in quarta a infierire contro un’associazione internazionale che si (pre)occupa della salvaguardia del nostro pianeta.

Alla base di una buona convivenza vi è l’informazione corretta: per questo è vitale che i bambini possano avvicinarsi alle giuste informazioni e per questo il WWF Svizzera con il suo Pandamobil da 40 anni è sul territorio svolgendo la sua attività di “educazione ambientale”. Crescendo, questi bambini avranno una cultura ben diversa dai loro genitori e si preoccuperanno di portare maggiore rispetto all’ambiente!

Ciò che sulla stampa raramente viene toccata è l’altra faccia della medaglia: il lupo svolge il suo ruolo di selettore naturale, controllando la dimensione delle popolazioni delle sue prede ed eliminando le carcasse di quegli animali morti per cause naturali.
Il lupo è un animale con un comportamento sociale complesso e strutturato, dotato di sensi straordinari e grande capacità di spostamento e adattamento. Egli vive in branchi da 2-7 individui, il branco è un’unità familiare che caccia, alleva la prole e difende il territorio. È un animale schivo e intelligente, quindi difficile da avvistare in natura.

Sfatiamo quindi la storiella di Cappuccetto rosso, comportiamoci da adulti intelligenti ed aperti: è ora di cercare delle soluzioni intelligenti, diffondere delle pratiche di allevamento del bestiame che tengano in adeguata considerazione la presenza dei predatori.

Locandina

Why does this happen?

Watch the interview with the manager of the “amphibious” project
of the  WWF  Section Ticino

The view was horrible: hundreds of little bodies smashed on the black street under a pouring rain (I refrain from showing you pictures of it).
And the cars didn’t stop or slow down, they were racing at our sides, meanwhile, we tried to save as many as possible of these lovely little creatures.
All of them, are trying to reach the ponds on the plane to lay the eggs, after descending from the mountain where they spent the winter.
This is one of the regular phases of Mother Nature, for the frogs and toads of several species.
But we, the humans without scruples, we have crossed their trails with streets… altering the regular “Beat of the Heart Gea and her living creatures”.
There are several signs on the streets, people know well (enough to look at the corpses on the street) the drivers should pay attention and drive carefully…
We need more volunteering people, willing to spend hours at night to help save as many as possible of these little fellows.
But we are few, with goodwill and a big heart!
The WWF all over our country encourages citizens to take seriously this matter, but still, we need more support from the politics and regarding this, we could open up a debate about ethics and wild animals deserving our respect and support…

 Attenzione_attraversamento_rane_rospi

Caution: crossing frogs and toads, do not crush them!

La visione era orribile: centinaia di piccoli corpi spappolati sul nero asfalto della strada sotto una pioggia battente (tranquilli, non mostro le immagini).
Mentre le auto non rallentavano o fermavano, sfrecciavano ai nostri lati mentre noi cercavamo di salvare il maggior numero possibile di queste belle piccole creature.
Rane o rospi che stanno cercando di raggiungere gli stagni sul piano per deporre le uova, scendendo dalla montagna dove hanno passano l’inverno.
Questa è una delle fasi regolari di Madre Natura, per le rane e rospi di diverse specie.
Ma noi, gli esseri umani senza scrupoli, abbiamo attraversato i loro percorsi con strade … alterando il regolare “battito del cuore di Gea e delle sue creature viventi”.
La presenza degli anfibi è segnalata ai lati della strada, in quelle zone a rischio, e la gente lo sa (o basta guardare i cadaveri sull’asfalto): gli automobilisti devrebbero prestare attenzione e guidare con prudenza…
Abbiamo bisogno di più volontari, disposti a passare qualche ora tra le 19:00-6:00 e per contribuire a salvare il maggior numero possibile di queste piccole creature.
Ma siamo in pochi, con buona volontà e un grande cuore!
Il WWF in tutto il nostro paese incoraggia i cittadini a prendere sul serio la questione, ma necessitiamo di più sostegno da parte dei politici e per quanto riguarda questo, potremmo aprire un dibattito sull’etica e la salvaguardia degli animali selvatici che meritano il nostro rispetto e il sostegno…

ATTENZIONE_rane_rospi

Crossing frogs and toads!   Slow down, please.

Let’s talk about captivity…

It’s happened to me as well to see “loris” but also other small wild animals on sell in some Asiatic or South American market. These cute little fellows with such big eyes… Actually, I always rejected the idea of pets kept in a cage and many times I was arguing with the bloody sellers, most of the time getting a response (for sure some really bad and nasty words) in Hindi, Cantonese, Thai, Spanish or Portuguese…
Yes, this is a worldwide spread horrible habit: selling protected (or non protected) animals to unconscious (?) tourists buyers.
Until there will be people buying wild animals as a pet, this market will grow.
Please, consider to share the knowledge and avoid contribute with buying them. If you would like to have a pet companion, you better prefer a cat or a dog… there are many many of them in the animal shelter in your city!
And keep in mind: a pet needs love and care, a lot of time and consideration. Before satisfying your need of a “companion”, think twice!

April 19th. 2017, I’m very sorry… but as usual the disturbing video has been “blocked” by FB or Youtube…

.

.

Mi è successo più volte durante i miei viaggi di vedere “Loris” ma anche altri piccoli animali selvatici in vendita in qualche mercato asiatico o sud americano. Questi piccoli animaletti simpatici con grandi occhi… In realtà, ho sempre rifiutato l’idea di animali tenuti in una gabbia e molte volte ho bisticciato in discussioni con venditori senza scrupoli, la maggior parte del tempo ottenevo una risposta (di sicuro orribili parolacce) in hindi, cantonese, thai, spagnolo o portoghese…
Sì, questa è un’orribile abitudine diffusa su tutto il pianeta: la vendita di animali protetti (o non protetti) a turisti inconsapevoli (?)
Fino a quando ci saranno persone pronte a comperare animali selvatici quali animali da compagnia, questo mercato crescerà.
Vi prego di
considerare la condivisione di questa informazione e di evitare di contribuire all’acquisto di Lori, ma anche di qualsiasi altro animale protetto. Se si desidera avere un animale domestico come compagno , è meglio preferire un gatto o un cane… ci sono molti animali abbandonati nei rifugi per animali della tua città!
Ricordate: un animale domestico ha bisogno di amore e di cura, un sacco di tempo e considerazione. Prima di soddisfare il vostro bisogno di un “compagno”, pensateci due volte!

Represent animals in D.C.

SHARED from Cecil’s Pide (executive editor Jeff.W.)

Hello everybody,

this Friday will mark the end of one era and the beginning of another. As the Obama family is packing up making way for the Trump family to begin a new chapter, many are concerned about the future of the animals at risk domestically and abroad. The animal community has experienced a lot of progress in the last couple years with a progressive government that has been providing an animal friendly government appointing righteous judges and policy makers who have been purposing laws like Pedals Law and bringing back soldier dogs to US soil. We’ve also seen wins in the creation of protected lands ensuring safety for animals across millions of acres of lands and the banning of elephants at circuses. But we cannot take these wins for granted as the incoming pro hunting Trump government will be reversing many of these laws to please their hunting and business elite overlords. Even prior to taking office, they’re already soliciting donations in return for a chance to go hunting with the presidential family with ask prices up to a million dollars. The incoming chapter will be a season where we need to stand up for the animals because the government will not be protecting them anymore. With an incoming We need to speak out and let policy makers know that they will be watched and we will intervene and expose them if they are conducting themselves in an unethical manner.   This Friday at inauguration, animal lovers from all over the world will be joining the thousands of justice fighters representing animals and other causes; this is our place to make a stand in the world’s most televised event.

We invite you to make a sign and go if you can. The more representing animals, the better. but we know that if you cannot attend, we invite you to pitch in to the efforts of animal advocacy to ensure there is a voice for the animals. Even Even a simple $2 can go a long way. 2017 will be a year where the animal community will be active. We are working with partnering groups like Cecil2017 and Animal Embassy to ensure the legacy of Cecil roars on. We have anti-poaching protests planned with partnering groups in major cities and plan to host a surprise visit to Palmer’s place on a day he does not expect us. But all of this is only possible with your support. The future of animal activism especially in the area of journalism and reporting is in your hands and we invite you to partake with us in the new year to make this a year where the animal lovers will continue to press on.

Here are a few ways you can help:

1- Go to DC on inauguration and represent animals. We have thousand of people from different causes committed to speaking out in a non violent manner at this event from social justice issues, environment protection advocates, native advocacy many more. Help the animal movement take advantage of the media opportunity.

2- Give to the animal movement- Not everyone has the availability to travel all the way to DC but we can all support our fellow animal advocates at DC on friday and future advocacy efforts by giving to the movement. For larger donations, we invite you to check out Animal Embassyand their gift store or consider getting a Cecil Poster.

3- Commit to getting involved in 2017- While hunters and haters may think they have it easy, we need to let the know that we’re not going down without a fight. Many of our community members are committing to putting on local advocacy events with partner groups including a surprise visit to Palmer and we invite you to do so as well.

Cecil’s Pride is partnering with Animal Embassy to raise awareness and support the movement with a limited edition 24×36 poster/picture of Cecil to put in your living room. You can frame it, you can put it on the wall as a poster. It is a great conversation starter and a great way to make the point “shoot with cameras, not with guns.”    Pledge Your Support For The 2017 Year

We would like more people standing up for animal causes and are making a call to the animal community to ensure advocacy is present for animals at risk. We know that when we reach critical mass, the government, no matter how corrupt, will heed to the demands of the people. These people are offering their time to advocate as they believe in a world without trophy hunting and any form of animal cruelty. Do you believe in this vision? Will you chip in a $5 to make this dream a reality?

At Cecil’s Pride, we believe in change and will stand firmly side by side with animal lovers and fellow activists as brothers and sisters in advocacy. Never before has there been an event of such great magnitude and we will do what we can to help them FORCE CHANGE.

We also support a couple other grassroot movements that are making high impact for the animal kingdom. Do you want to support our work? Please click here to donate today.

Tilikum’s Life Story Will Bring You to Tears

Article taken from PETA Blog

Tilikum died in a barren tank on January 6, 2017, at SeaWorld. He was the largest orca in captivity, weighing 12,500 pounds and measuring over 22 feet in length.

© Ingrid N. Visser, Ph.D.

When he was just 2 years old, Tilikum was captured from his family and ocean home near Iceland. That was in 1983—over 30 years ago. He has never seen his family since then. This was the beginning of his living nightmare.

After his capture, the young whale was kept in a cement holding tank for nearly a year at Hafnarfjörður Marine Zoo in Iceland to await transfer to a marine park. Held captive against his will, all he could do was swim in small circles and float aimlessly at the surface of the water, far from the expansive ocean in which he had swum every day alongside his family members.

lolita-in-net

Finally, Tilikum was transferred to the rundown marine park, Sealand of the Pacific, in British Columbia, Canada. A barren 100-foot-by-50-foot pool—just 35 feet deep—was his sad new “home.”

tilikum-with-lanolin

Food was withheld from Tilikum as a training technique, and he regularly endured painful attacks by two dominant female orcas, Haida and Nootka. He was forced to perform every hour on the hour, eight times a day, seven days a week. The constant stress and exhaustion gave him stomach ulcers.

When the park closed at the end of each day, the three incompatible orcas were crammed into a tiny round metal-sided module for more than 14 hours until the park reopened the next morning.

tilikum-at-sealand-of-the-pacific.jpg

On February 21, 1991, Sealand trainer Keltie Byrne fell into the pool containing all three orcas. She was pulled to the bottom of the enclosure by Tilikum, tossed around among the three orcas, and ultimately drowned. It took Sealand employees two hours to recover her body from the orcas. She was the first of three people to be killed because of Tilikum’s confinement, stress, and frustration.

Shortly after Byrne’s death, Sealand closed its doors for good and put Tilikum up for sale as though he were nothing more than a commodity.

3286_tilikum-seaworld-whale_jpg-400x0.jpg

SeaWorld officials quickly purchased Tilikum for the marine park’s breeding program, apparently giving little thought to his reputation for aggression and killing. Tilikum’s sperm was used to build a collection of orcas, and now, 54 percent of SeaWorld’s orcas have his genes. He has now been at SeaWorld for over 21 years and has 11 living children and four grandchildren.

The stress of captivity drove Tilikum to exhibit abnormal repetitive behavior and has also caused him to continue to exhibit aggression toward humans, costing two more lives—those of Daniel P. Dukes in 1999 and Dawn Brancheau in 2010. Tilikum scalped and dismembered Brancheau as well as breaking bones throughout her body before drowning her.

tilikum-googlemaps-image

After a year in virtual isolation, Tilikum was returned to performing. SeaWorld unsuccessfully appealed its citation for violating a federal workplace safety law meant to protect workers from recognized life-threatening hazards. The company recklessly continued to allow trainers to swim with orcas behind the scenes and interact with them in shallow areas without any barrier or minimum distance, leading to yet another series of citations for endangering workers.

Tilikum is not the only orca who has become aggressive as a result of all the stress that the whales are forced to endure in the small tanks at SeaWorld. The park’s own records contain 600 pages of incident reports documenting dangerous and unanticipated orca behavior with trainers, consisting of more than 100 incidents in which killer whales bit, rammed, lunged at, pulled, pinned, and swam aggressively with SeaWorld trainers. Many of these incidents led to human injuries, including a near-death encounter experienced by trainer Ken Peters.

dawn-brancheau-orca-seaworld

Aggression toward humans and among orcas is nearly non-existent in nature, but the constant stress of living in incompatible social groupings inside minuscule tanks at SeaWorld causes some orcas to lash out, posing a danger both to other whales and to employees.

It’s too late for Tilikum, but we can help the other animals still trapped at SeaWorld. Remember: Every dollar spent on a SeaWorld ticket contributes to animals’ misery. Never go to any SeaWorld park, and urge your friends and family to stay away, too. Together, we can shut down SeaWorld for good!

No chains. No cages. No tanks.

Fighting for the animal’s right * combattere per i diritti degli animali

Legendary animal-rights leader and Holocaust survivor Alex Hershaft, a member of the JVNA Board of Directors, explains in depth for the first time the connection between his ordeal in the Warsaw Ghetto and his advocacy for farmed animals.

hershaft_alex_copyright_pictures_yuval_chen

The video starts with a terrible and touching testimony of the cruelty of humans. There are no words to express the mixed feelings you get when looking at that 52 minutes video… The pictures from the past and these of nowadays, are awful.
A parallelism which your stomach tighten and your heart suffer. Humans are the worst animals, only men can act like this… against their own similars, against other living creatures.
Last year, I saw what happened in Ukraine in the years 1921-22, 1932-33 and 1946-47 with famine and hunger.
During 1932-33, 7 million of people, 1/3 were children, died of hunger (the Holodomor which was recognized only on 2008) since Stalin’s “process of transformation” started a depraved action by taking all the food, destroyed all the agriculture tools, took away all the animals from the Ukranian’s Kulaks.
Another story is hidden well, as thousand other similar stories happened and still happens right now in many countries of our planet.
How can men do such atrocity to other humans, to other living creature?
From the 31st. minute, you see all the valid reasons to become vegan… and fortunately, Mr. Hershaft doesn’t show us the slaughterhouses.
harshaft-holocausto3

Il leggendario leader di diritti degli animali e sopravvissuto all’Olocausto Alex Hershaft, un membro del Consiglio di Amministrazione JVNA, spiega in modo approfondito per la prima volta il collegamento tra il suo calvario nel ghetto di Varsavia e la sua difesa per gli animali da allevamento.

Il video inizia con una terribile e toccante testimonianza della crudeltà degli esseri umani. Non ci sono parole per esprimere i sentimenti contrastanti che si hanno quando si guarda il video di 52 minuti… Le immagini del passato e quelle di oggi, sono terribili.
Un parallelismo che ti stringe lo stomaco e soffoca il cuore. Gli esseri umani sono gli animali peggiori, solo gli uomini possono agire in questo modo… contro i propri simili, nei confronti di altri esseri viventi.
L’anno scorso, ho preso atto di quanto successo in Ucraina negli anni 1921-22, 1932-33 e 1946-47, con la carestia e la fame.
Durante il 1932-1933, 7 milioni di persone, 1/3 erano bambini, sono morti di fame (l’Holodomor è stato riconosciuto solo nel 2008), in quanto nel “processo di trasformazione” di Stalin ha avuto inizio un’azione depravata nei confronti dei Kulaki ucraini: fu levato loro tutto il cibo, distrutti gli stumenti per l’agricoltura e requisito tutti gli animali.
Un’altra storia che è stata nascosta bene, come mille altre storie simili avvenute e che tutt’ora accadono in questo momento in molti paesi del nostro pianeta.
Come possono fare gli uomini tale atrocità ad altri esseri umani, ad altri esseri viventi?

we do NOT need nuclear power plants

There are people who invest all their forces to improve living conditions on our planet… people who are convinced that there are intelligent and environmentally friendly alternatives … and one thing is certain: we do NOT need nuclear power plants to get electricity!
    …oOo…
Ci sono persone che investono tutte le loro forze per migliorare le condizioni di vita sul nostro pianeta… persone che sono convinte che ci sono alternative intelligenti e rispettose dell’ambiente… ed una cosa è certa: NON necessitiamo di centrali nucleari per il fabbisogno di energia elettrica!

What is behind a mozzarella of Bufala…

Just a few words for the English speaking:
this is what is happening in Italy, but I guess is just about the same story around the whole planet Earth.
Misuse of animals for economic reasons… this is about the quite famous “mozzarella di bufala” a must for the gourmet. I am sure if each one of us does a deep reflection about such things, before buying or eating we could make a real difference and avoid that these horrible things to happen. This is just about “milk”, but even behind a simple mozzarella there is pain, horror, and mistreatment of the aminals producing the basic product: milk.
Sometimes, nowadays, you even can’t be sure anymore about those who claims to produce “bio”… it is a world going out of control.

See the images and short spot… no other words are necessary.
Most of all there is only one thing to start with: stop buying products with are involved with the deep suffering of animals.
This is a good start… spread the words, do some good for the planet.

bufala_crudelta.pngMaxi sequestro di allevamenti di bufale in provincia di Caserta: rischi per la salute e l’ambiente. In provincia di Caserta ha preso il via una maxi operazione di controllo da parte di Carabinieri, Nas e Noe che vede al centro gli allevamenti di bufale. Nella zona di recente si sono verificati sequestri di allevamenti di bufale, caseifici e discariche abusive. Gli allevamenti bufalini sono stati sequestrati tra Castel Volturno e Cancello Arnone. Sono stati contestati i reati di inquinamento e di violazione delle norme sanitarie. Le denunce sono scattate grazie al Portavoce Parlamentare del MoVimento 5 Stelle Paolo Bernini e a Alfredo Riccio della Lega Nazionale Per La Difesa Del Cane ed hanno portato ad una lunga serie di sequestri. A Castel Volturno, in particolare, è stato sequestrato un intero allevamento bufalino. I Nas hanno rilevato carenze igienico sanitarie. Inoltre 34 bufali risultavano senza…

Animals are sentient beings, as us… and they are better than humans… they deserve respect, love and caring… but most of all they deserve FREEDOM. Zoos, any type of captivity shall be banned from this planet: once and for all.
I stand beside the animalists and each group or association who try hard to reach this goal! Be safe, be brave and let’ show our strong commitment.

Be vegetarian… then try to go vegan. Do it now, before it is too late!

National Animal Rights Day 2016 draws a massive crowd for a funeral for factory farmed animals right under the famous Hollywood sign. It’s more dramatic than a movie. Yet, mainstream media di…

Pope Francis, a great Bodhisattva…

He is the first pope to take the name of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of all animals, who said, “Not to hurt our humble brethren is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission—to be of service to them wherever they require it.” And he is also the first religious leader to be picked as PETA’s Person of the Year.

Pope Francis was chosen for asking the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics and all citizens of the world to reject human domination over God’s creation, treat animals with kindness, and respect the environment—something PETA views as a call to turn toward a simple, plant-based diet, given the now well-established role of animal agriculture in climate change.

Francesco

Egli è il primo papa a prendere il nome di San Francesco d’Assisi, patrono di tutti gli animali, che disse: “Non danneggiare i nostri umili fratelli è il nostro primo dovere, ma fermarci a ciò non è sufficiente. Abbiamo una missione più grande… di essere al loro servizio ovunque sia richiesto”.
Ed egli è anche il primo capo religioso ad essere scelto come PETA’s person of the Year”.
Papa Francesco è stato scelto per aver chiesto a 1,2 miliardi di cattolici nel mondo e a tutti i cittadini del pianeta di respingere il dominio dell’uomo sulla creazione di Dio, di trattare gli animali con gentilezza, e di rispettare l’ambiente, ciò che  PETA vede come una chiamata a trasformare i nostri consumi verso una semplice dieta basata sui vegetali, considerato il ruolo ormai consolidato dell’agricoltura animale nel cambiamento climatico.

Climate change is impacting every part of our world — our health, the economy, biodiversity, forests, agriculture, communities and more. We are running out of time, but not solutions. We ask the World Leaders, when they meet at the Paris climate conference this December, to urge to work for climate action, including a new universal legal agreement committing all nations to specific steps to achieve a low-carbon future. It will take bold action from us all to solve the climate crisis.

Il cambiamento climatico sta influenzando ogni parte del nostro pianeta la nostra salute, l’economia, la biodiversità, le foreste, l’agricoltura, le comunità e altro ancora. Siamo a corto di tempo, ma non di soluzioni. Quando i Capi dei Governi si incontreranno alla conferenza sul clima di Parigi il prossimo dicembre, li invitiamo a lavorare per delle azioni per il clima, tra cui un nuovo accordo legale universale che impegni tutti i paesi a misure specifiche per realizzare un futuro a basse emissioni di carbonio. Ci vorranno azioni coraggiose da tutti noi per risolvere la crisi climatica.

Why man has a short memory? Perché l’essere umano ha la memoria corta?

.

Any news of disaster always ends up on the front pages of the newspapers, in the head-light communication on television, on everyone’s lips that horrified and terrified, whether make it a wonder!
Then time passes… and with from the first pages, the news are sporadic, until they disappeared from the media because they do not make more fuss. The normality of everyday life creeps…
But what happened at Chernobyl on April 26th, 1986 and Fukushima on March 11th, 2011?
Two years have passed, in which we continued our normal life… and the politics of Nuclear, first put to restrain, has now taken the necessary priorities to meet the needs of humanity that [unfortunately] can’t keep “memories” and then change her lifestyle!
But also that March 11th, 2011 is happened what will continue to happen if man will not be able to grasp the message… Good intentions are unfortunately already gone to hell, no longer energy saving… a responsible lifestyle… and then… you expect it to happen again?!

I’M NOT FORGOTTEN…

***

Ogni notizia di catastrofe sempre finisce sulle prime pagine dei giornali, nelle head-light delle comunicazioni alla televisione, sulla bocca di tutti che, inorriditi e terrorizzati, se ne fanno una meraviglia!

Poi il tempo trascorre… e con esso dalle prime pagine le notizie si fanno sporadiche, fino a sparire dai media in quanto non fanno più clamore. La normalità s’insinua del quotidiano… Ma cos’era accaduto a Chernobyl il 26 aprile 1986 e a Fukushima l’11 marzo 2011?

Sono trascorsi due anni, nei quali noi abbiamo seguitato la nostra normale vita… e la politica del Nucleare, dapprima messa a freno, ha ripreso le priorità necessarie a soddisfare le esigenze dell’umanità che [purtroppo] non riesce a serbare “i ricordi” e quindi a modificare il suo stile di vita! Ma anche quell’11 marzo 2011 è accaduto ciò che continuerà ad accadere se l’uomo non riuscirà a carpire il messaggio… I buoni propositi sono purtroppo già andati a farsi benedire, non è più d’attualità il risparmio energetico… uno stile di vita conseguente… e quindi… si aspetta che accada nuovamente?!!
