Save These Dogs From A Cruel Death

I just watched this video about how stray dogs are smuggled and killed in Thailand and it’s so sad!

You have to be pretty emotionally dead not to want to do something to help these poor dogs who get treated worse then battery farm chickens, they’re crammed into tiny cages and then killed for their meat in horrific ways. It’s really easy to make a contribution, you can simply sign a petition HERE to influence the government in Thailand and you can also pay to buy billboards to make the Thai public aware of what is happening, you will get this option after signing the petition.

I hope you take a few seconds of your time to try and make a difference!

Lots of love

Help put an End to Israel and Palestines War!

I remember watching this disturbing video in 2012

I CANNOT believe this is still going on…it is SO sad, innocent children and civilians are being killed every day while we stand by. The statistics below may shock you due to the amount of propaganda you have swallowed but this is the truth. You get stupid articles like this making excuses for why there are so many more Palestinians dead then Israelis. Do you really believe this absolute BULL?! The truth is there have been 6961 deaths and counting in Palestine vs 1110 in Israel and I am not condoning those because every life lost is terrible and this war must stop. If you are tax paying citizens did you ever consider that the UK gives £6 billion per year and the US $3 billion dollars per year to Israel! Our Government is prepared to make cuts to our health care, our police, our pensions yet they still give our tax payers money to Israel so they can continue to carry out the illegal occupation and brutal murder of the Palestinians. Israel continue to break ceasefires and UN resolutions because our Government is paying them to do so.

If you care, please take a second to sign this petition and STOP THIS WAR.

Force Feeding at Guantanamo – Sign The Petition!

Islamic community leaders are calling on the Obama administration to rethink its policy of force-feeding hunger-striking detainees in Guantánamo during the month-long fast of Ramadan that begins on Monday.

The US government has said that barring “unforeseen emergency or operational issues” it will respect the daylight fast by trying only to force feed 45 detainees at night. Muslim groups say that by refusing to suspend the practice during Ramadan the US is adding insult to injury.

“We believe it’s wrong to force feed at any time but it is particularly upsetting to do it through Ramadan,” said Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman of the largest US Muslim civil rights and advocacy group, the Council On American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). He said the situation was Kafkaesque: “It’s not just a religious issue, it’s also a human rights issue in violation of international norms and medical ethics.”

To mark the beginning of Ramadan, the human rights group Reprieve has released  a video in which the actor and rapper Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) submits himself to the enteral feeding imposed in Guantánamo.

The star said that he volunteered to be force-fed by two volunteer doctors to highlight what was happening to the hunger strikers in Guantánamo.

The four-minute video, directed by Bafta award-winning filmmaker Asif Kapadia, seeks to reconstruct the specific force-feeding instructions set out in standard operating guidelines from Guantánamo leaked to al-Jazeera. It shows a plastic tube being inserted through Bey’s nostril into his stomach. The “Medical Management Standard Operating Procedure” document leaked from the detention camp defines a hunger striker as a detainee who has missed at least nine consecutive meals or whose weight has fallen to less than 85% of his ideal body weight.

If force feeding is deemed medically necessary, medical personnel shackle the detainee “and a mask is placed over the detainee’s mouth to prevent spitting and biting”. A feeding tube is then passed through the detainee’s nostril into the stomach.

The process takes about 20 to 30 minutes but they can be required to stay in the restraint chair for up to two hours until a chest x-ray confirms the nutrient has reached their stomach.

The prisoner is then removed from restraint chair to “dry cell” where they are observed by a guard for up to an hour “for any indication of vomiting or attempts to induce vomiting”. If they do vomit, they are returned to the restraint chair for the entire duration of the observation period in subsequent feeds.

If they bite the tube, the guards hold their head still for “as long as necessary for the detainee to relax his jaw”.

Zizzle agrees with Bishop Richard Pates (chair of the committee on international justice and peace for the US conference of Catholic bishops) he wrote to the defence secretary Chuck Hagel noting the opposition of the International Committee of the Red Cross to force-feeding. “Rather than resorting to such measures, our nation should first do everything it can to address the conditions of despair that have led to this protest.”

What Can You Do To Make A Change??
Well there is a petition that I found, when I signed it they still needed 73,000 signatures. CLICK HERE to sign it. Morris Davis created the petition, he served 25 years in the US Air Force and was the Chief Prosecutor for the Terrorism Trials at Guantanamo Bay for more than two years.
More than 160 men who have never been charged with any offense, much less convicted of a war crime, remain at Guantanamo with no end in sight. MAKE A DIFFERENCE, you never know what your signature could mean! I would be really interested to know if you did, please leave comments and thoughts!
