Miss Babs

Our friend Philip lives in LA along with his kitty Babs, who is featured with the yarn on her head. His elderly mother also lives in with him and is currently knitting the piece which Babs seems to favour. The pink cushion is where Philip,
Babs and the black kitty Spanky all meditate. Sometimes it is fun to post other people's kitties.

Yum~Radish Leaf Vegan Pesto

I haven't posted any ponderings of late, but I do have a "pearl" today for you.
Today our first local village market opened up, and I like to do some veggie shopping there to support our local growers. I was on the hunt for basil, but there not being any at a reasonable price yet, I came upon some lovely radishes. I had made up some vegan potato salad last week and wanted to make some again with radish as one of the ingredients. That said,the gal said to me, you can make pesto with the leaves of those radishes. Really I said? I pondered it on my walk home, and then googled to find a simple recipe.
I made it in my blender, same way I do my basil pesto. Being vegan 99% (the 1% is the occasional ingredient in a mix out that I overlook when I have some dessert out like a truffle)
So if you too want to have a radish pesto just use the leaves , not the stems, with olive oil, garlic, pumpkin seeds, bit of lemon juice, titch of salt, (I used my red Hawaiian seasalt with clay) and blend it all up. It tastes spicey, like arugula, and it must load a whack of good vitamins too! Yum.
And as for measurements, I use a whole head of garlic, cuz I love garlic, but you can play with how your tastebuds like it.

Dalai Lama turns 78 next week~Send a birthday Greeting

Dear Friend of Tibet,

Thank you for honoring His Holiness the Dalai Lama by sending him birthday greetings!

I am sure your message will be well received, as are all the ways you help realize the Dalai Lama’s vision of a peaceful future for Tibet and its people. Your support of the International Campaign for Tibet allows us to raise global awareness about the Chinese government’s oppressive polices in Tibet and rally people of conscience worldwide to the cause of Tibetan self-determination.

If you haven’t already, please ask your family and friends to send their own e-cards to His Holiness.

Peace,

Bhuchung Tsering

More Secret Dealing going on ~Canada

Library and Archives Canada has entered into a secret deal that would hand over exclusive rights to books and artifacts owned by Canadian taxpayers to a private firm for 10 years to be digitized.
We know something fishy is going on -- everyone involved in the deal was forced to sign non-disclosure clauses, excluding the public from understanding the deal until it is announced. Critics say the deal is wrapped in a cloak of secrecy because it amounts to selling back to Canadians what we already own. Put simply, Canadians may be asked to pay a monthly fee to access to our own books. This amounts to the privatization of our public records. It amounts to Library and Archives Canada handing over fat contracts to private firms like Canadiana.org to provide a service that the public does not need.
Before Canadiana.org and Library and Archives Canada finalize their deal, Canadians need to demand that they come clean and tell us about the details. Also, join me in speaking out now, saying that we reject any deal involving the privatization of our books and records before they sign the dotted line here: http://action.sumofus.org/a/library-canada/?sub=taf

Flower Bed - Simon's Cat



This pretty much sums up how it is here now with Gracie the latest addition in the pride.

Comet Ison, the 2nd MOON, AND PLANET X Headed straight for earth Novemb...

I read recently from Steve Rother's mailings, that it is predicted by his guides that the comet dust in the tail of this comet Ison will seed new life on our planet. Considering that currently our planet earth is in its 6th greatest extinction, with over 200 species dying off DAILY, one can only hope the new life being supposedly seeded , will be able to sustain the geo-engineering here which is rapidly contributing to our aluminum filled soils and waters, not to mention our heads full of lead so to speak, (more accurately barium, strontium, aluminum etc.) and that this new life being seeded will also be of some higher intelligence, perhaps and or hopefully assisting with humanity awakening. Time will tell.

McDonald's and Debit Card Wages

McDonald's restaurants are forcing employees to accept payment on fee-laden debit cards, in some cases pushing their pay below minimum wage.
Tell McDonald's to stop cheating its workers now.

Linda,

When single mother Natalie Gunshannon went to get her first paycheck from her new job at McDonald’s, she was in for a shock -- McDonald’s gave Natalie her salary on a debit card that came with ridiculous hidden charges, like forcing her to pay $5 every time she withdraws her money at her bank. 

What’s more, when Natalie asked for a check, McDonald’s refused, saying she had to take the card -- and the charges -- or not take any money at all. This scheme allows her local franchise operator to save a few dollars from the cost of cutting checks by making deals with big banks that force employees to use fee-laden cards. In many cases, the high costs push workers' hourly pay below minimum wage.

Tell McDonald's to ban the practice of forcing employees to be paid with fee-laden debit cards.
The practice of replacing checks with expensive cards is gaining ground with employers. This practice saves businesses money and allows banks to charge ridiculous sums -- Natalie was forced to pay $15 to replace her card if she ever lost it. Employers know that they won't have to pay the high fees, because their employees will be the ones charged.
This is abuse of employer privileges, pure and simple, telling workers that they have no choice but to accept unfair charges or go hungry. Employers are forcing this upon their workers because in a bad economy, they don't think workers have a choice to speak up -- even though the practice is illegal.
If we band together to call out businesses that engage in this horrendous practice, we can send a powerful message to anyone who tries to push outlandish charges onto their employees that this will not be tolerated. Together, we can stop this practice before it becomes widespread.
Sign our petitions to McDonald's: get rid of these exploitative debit cards.

Thank you.

! Critical ! EMERGENCY EMERGENCY EMERGENCY EMERGENCY Make VIRAL


And here is the link with the pdf that this clip is talking about. Depopulation plans of the "baddies" .

http://www.stopthecrime.net/docs/nasa-thefutureof-war.pdf

Message from Montague

The plans to attack your internet could not be carried out, as good people shared their information worldwide, thus making it impossible for the Cabal to carry out its plans. It is important that you learn from this experience. Realise that you are not powerless. So many countries were aware of the plans to attack the internet. So the Cabal is finding it increasingly difficult to keep its plans secret.

By cooperating, coming together, and acting as a whole, mankind will survive. You do not need the Cabal for your survival. Their plans for humanity are horrific, but they are being exposed. Together, we can prevent them from carrying them out. Do not be taken in by their fine words, false displays of friendship, and the pretence of working for the good of humanity.

As the Irish Member of Parliament, Clare Daly, stated so eloquently, it is time to call it what it is. It is time for the women to retake control. With good men at their side, working together, peace, harmony and equality, could be restored in no time. Those in power are all part of the Cabal, just puppets obeying orders, prepared to say whatever it takes to keep the masses under control.

Ask them where their true allegiance lies. As you wake up, you will see this more and more. When the full picture of your situation becomes clear, you will be inspired as to what action you should take and whom to trust. Always ensure that you are grounded. This is very important at this time. Send much love to those who plan to destroy all that you hold dear, as they cannot handle love. Send love also to those who have been taken in by members of the Cabal, so that they may return to the light once more. Ask their higher selves to please accept the love and protection you send them. The power of love knows no bounds.

Many of you are concerned by the tiredness that overcomes you all of a sudden. Just close your eyes and allow the process of change that must happen to your bodies as this is essential for you to move to a higher dimension. Welcome these changes. They are what you have been waiting for. Obviously, those in the Cabal, will do all in in their power to prevent you from raising your consciousness. But you have nothing to fear. It is a natural process, welcome it. Your bodies are having to cope with some discomfort and pain as they deal with these changes. What you need to understand is that this is a natural process and there is no need to be alarmed or seek medical advice. There is no need for drugs of any kind. You are raising your vibration, that is all.

Be alert to all the misinformation that is being directed at you. Check all "facts" yourselves. Look with eyes wide open, and never again accept what you are told that you are seeing. Accept only what you can see for yourself. Take control of your lives and stop acting as sheep, allowing others to control you.

Religions were created so that you would accept, through FEAR and without question, what you were told. They failed to remind you that you all have FREE WILL, so it is up to you to decide what you accept. All religions rule through fear. This was done to control you. It is time to allow LOVE to replace that fear. It is when you see with the eyes of love that everything changes for the better.

This is a time of great change, so go with the flow. The right people will lead you forward into the light. Most importantly, the killing will stop. The abduction of innocent children will stop and those responsible for this will be exposed, as this is the most heinous crime and it can never happen in the light. There are some who are so corrupt that they will have to remove themselves from the Earth. Worry not, everything will proceed as it should. We in spirit are overseeing the Transition, and we encourage and support those who speak out. This is their chosen path. The Cabal is aware of those who have a mission to carry out. So they watch them until they become active, they then try to entice them away from it or attack them and implant them, to try to prevent them from completing their mission. Sometimes money is used as an enticement to lure them away. Those of you who are on Earth at this time with specific work to carry out, must be on guard. Protect yourselves as there are predators all around you, offering every enticement to get you off your path.

One of your most trusted people is being used to get to you, to cause you problems. You, my dear, are only too aware of how they operate. When such people suddenly show an interest in you, offering financial assistance, it does not take a genius to know that they have an agenda. They know that if you follow your true path, you may expose what they are up to. The Cabal will go to any lengths to hold on to power. They will even "befriend" those they despise.

This is a most important time on Earth, as there are so many changes happening on many levels. Physically, emotionally, and spiritually, you are becoming who you truly are – spirit beings of light. You know that darkness cannot exist in the light. The shackles that the Cabal has imposed on you are falling away and you are beginning to feel free. Free to think your own thoughts. You are opening up to who you are and what you are capable of. Those within the Cabal are frightened of this, as you are so much more powerful than they are. Once you understand this fact, the Cabal is finished. They planned the destruction of the human race as you know it, and this could not be allowed to happen. You, all of you who are of the light, are on Earth to see to it that this will not happen. You will succeed.

Forgive me for being so serious today, but these are serious times. My dear wife feels a great sense of responsibility. She has much to do.

My dear, we will continue to carry out our plans, regardless of those who may fall by the wayside.

Always, your adoring, Monty.

Protect Whales~Not Oil Companies





Dear Linda,


Tell the Obama Administration to protect whales --
not oil companies

The Administration is poised to allow massive oil and gas exploration in the Arctic -- and the impacts on whales and other marine life could be devastating. Tell them to protect whales from dangerous oil and gas drilling!



The Obama Administration is about to open the Arctic to massive oil and gas exploration, while turning a blind eye to the far-reaching impacts it will have on whales and other marine life.

Tell the administration to protect whales and other marine wildlife from dangerous oil and gas activity in the fragile Arctic!

The National Marine Fisheries Service has just released an environmental review of potential oil and gas exploration in the Arctic Ocean. It is little more than a whitewash of the true and devastating impacts that such exploration could have on whales and other marine animals.

The agency is inviting the public to comment on its proposal until June 27. We must generate an immediate outcry against it.

The scope of oil and gas activity that the Fisheries Service is ready to allow is staggering. High-intensity airguns would bombard whales and other marine mammals with excruciating noise.

Those piercing blasts can be the difference between life and death for creatures that depend upon their hearing to survive.

And exploratory drilling would expose the fragile Arctic to oil spills that are practically impossible to contain or clean up.

In all, the administration is prepared to allow as many as 24 drilling and airgun operations each and every year. Yet the agency’s review fails to present even a remotely realistic picture of these risks.

Tell the Fisheries Service to go back to the drawing board and tally the true costs of Arctic oil development on whales and other marine life.

A truthful and thorough environmental review will clearly demonstrate that it’s a virtual impossibility to drill safely in the remote and hazardous environment of the Arctic.

The Fisheries Service’s job is to protect marine mammals -- not oil and gas companies. Please urge the agency to fulfill its responsibility and defend the whales and other marine life in one of our last and greatest wild places.

Thank you for making your voice heard in defense of whales.

Sincerely,

Frances Beinecke
President
Natural Resources Defense Council

Tar Sands~Healing Walk

Dear Linda,

Sometimes it can feel like it’s hard to be heard, like we’re a lone voice that can be ignored by powerful interests that would rather look the other way.

But when we work together online we can make sure that our collective voice will have a powerful impact - spreading stories that need to be heard, sending messages that can’t be ignored.

As you may know, the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation and Keepers of the Athabasca have invited Natural Resource Minister Joe Oliver and Alberta Premier Alison Redford to join them in this year’s tar sands Healing Walk and meet face-to-face with the communities that are being poisoned by the reckless expansion of the tar sands.

Now, the Healing Walk is just two weeks away, and it’s time to turn up the pressure. Imagine if thousands of us flooded Premier Redford’s Twitter channel and covered Minister Oliver’s Facebook page with messages. Politicians and journalists watch these social media channels closely, and we can make a big difference, but we need your help.

Click here to join the Healing Walk Social Media Team as part of Leadnow's Amplify Network -- and we’ll send you quick social media news and actions at critical moments over the next two weeks.

Over the next two weeks we want to bring thousands of voices together thousands at critical moments to:

1. Fill the void left by the traditional media by amplifying stories from the communities that have been impacted by tar sands expansion.

2. Make sure our government can’t look the other way by publicly flooding Redford and Oliver’s social media pages and accounts with messages and stories.

3. Reach new people by spreading inspiring endorsements from respected public figures.

Are you in? Click here to join the Healing Walk Social Media Team and we’ll send you quick social media news and actions at critical moments over the next two weeks.

UFO Eceti Photos~Summer 2013

Okay here it is what everyone has been asking for. We finally took some of the footage of May and June 2013 and put it up on youtube. Pass it on. One has to think with all this footage why are so many UFO reporting centers, talk show hosts and Investigators completely avoiding and censoring ECETI. This has been going on for 25 years yet now it is escalating to the next level. Contact and disclosure has already happened so why are we waiting for some external source, government and pidgeon hole this monumental event into one group. It is a universal event.

Thanks Liz for sending this informative article . 
Monsanto has spent the past three decades wrecking our environment, poisoning our bodies, and pushing species of crops to the verge of extinction with a wide array of toxic products. And Monsanto's signature herbicide, Roundup, does all these things at once. Roundup is one of its most damaging products to date -- Monsanto has said that the product is safe for years, yet independent research has found the chemical is creating herbicide-resistant superweeds, making a species of butterfly extinct, and disrupting normal human body functions.
Monsanto has inflicted awful damage upon the Earth and its inhabitants, but the company is finally facing significant blowback. Now, while the tide in the ongoing war of consumers vs. the agriculture giant is swinging our way, it is the time to tell Monsanto tell the truth about the effects of Roundup.

Speak up for Edward who exposed spying


Hi all,



This 29-year-old just gave up his whole life to blow the whistle on the US’s insane PRISM program -- which has hacked all our emails, Skype messages and Facebook posts for years. If millions of us act urgently and get behind him, we can help press the US to crack down on PRISM, not Edward. Let’s stand with him before it's too late:
This 29 year-old analyst just gave up his whole life -- his girlfriend, his job, and his home -- to blow the whistle on the US government's shocking PRISM program -- which has been reading and recording our emails, Skype messages, Facebook posts and phone calls for years.

When Bradley Manning passed this kind of data to Wikileaks, the US threw him naked into solitary confinement in conditions that the UN called "cruel, inhumane and degrading".

The authorities and press are deciding right now how to handle this scandal. If millions of us stand with Edward in the next 48 hours, it will send a powerful statement that he should be treated like the brave whistleblower that he is, and it should be PRISM, and not Edward, that the US cracks down on:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/stop_prism_global/?bVRUvbb&v=25823

PRISM is profoundly disturbing: it gives the US government unlimited access to all of our personal email and social media accounts on Google, Youtube, Facebook, Skype, Hotmail, Yahoo! and much more. They're recording billions of our messages every month and the CIA can now or in the future use the information to prosecute, persecute, or blackmail us, our friends or our families!

Edward was horrified by this unprecedented violation of individual privacy. So he copied large amounts of files, sent them to the Guardian newspaper for publication and escaped to Hong Kong. His bravery not only exposed PRISM, but has started a domino effect around the world, shining a light on secret spy programs in Canada, the UK and Australia in just days! Now he's trapped in Hong Kong, waiting to be arrested. A global outcry could save him from extradition to the US, and encourage other countries to grant him asylum.

We can't let the US do to Edward what they did to Bradley Manning. Let's urgently stand with him, and against PRISM:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/stop_prism_global/?bVRUvbb&v=25823

Sometimes the things our governments do are simply breathtaking. When heroic individuals like Edward have risked their own freedoms to bring scandals of this scale into light, the Avaaz community has come together to demand fair treatment -- and won. When half a million of us joined with other organizations and activists calling on the US government to stop its cruel treatment of Bradley Manning, he was relocated to a medium-security prison and taken out of solitary confinement. If we act quickly, we might do better for Edward, and help him win the fight he's bravely taken on, for all our sakes.

With hope and determination,

Ricken, Emma, Oli, Mia, Allison, Ari, Dalia, Laura and the whole Avaaz team

Apache Pipelines Oil Spill~Alberta

12 days ago, Apache pipelines spilled water into an area covering 52 football fields -- it took until today for the company tell the public about it. Many questions are still not answered.
Speak out now to demand Apache release information about the toxicity of the spill and release pictures.
Linda,
This is one of the biggest spills in Alberta history and the company responsible hid it for 12 days. On June 1st, Apache Corporation discovered a wastewater spill covering an area of 42 hectares, roughly the area of 52 CFL football fields. Yet, it took until today for the company and the Alberta government to provide estimates of its size.
There are so many questions unanswered, including:
  • Why was there a 12 day delay?
  • What is toxicity of the water spilled?
  • Why did the pipeline failed?
  • What is the company hiding?
  • Why is Apache not releasing any pictures?
Lets demand answers now before Apache sweeps it under the rug.
Demand that Apache release information and pictures of one of the biggest spills in Alberta history and explain why it hid it for 12 days.
What we know is this: an estimated 60,000 barrels – or 9.5 million litres – of waste water was spilled from an Apache pipeline connecting an oil field to a waste injection site in Northern Alberta. The company is downplaying saying that its "produced water”. However, according to research published by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, even in small volumes, produced water can quickly kill vegetation, creating areas that may take years to revegetate.
The Apache spill took place in an area rich with wetlands. In addition to not providing any information, Apache is also not providing any pictures. It’s easy to see why, pictures are worth a thousand words -- Exxon tried to cover up the extent of the Mayflower Arkansas spill this year by having a no-fly zone over the spill site. Not providing pictures is part of the Big Oil’s strategy to hide the damage caused by its dirty businesses. But we are on to their dirty tricks. Speak out now to demand Apache release information and pictures about the spill.
Ask Apache to release information and pictures of its huge spill in Northern Alberta.
Thanks for all that you do,
Angus and the team at SumOfUs.org

Directed energy weapons take many forms.  From EMP (electromagnetic pulses) to HPM (high powered microwaves), several weaponized forms of Radio Frequency are being developed.
These .pdf's from the US Navy Directed Energy Warfare Office (DEWO) show multiple applications for defensive / offensive Radio Frequency weaponry.
Many people have fallen behind the times in regards to understanding what capabilities are being developed, and what current next generation weapons are being deployed.

Spying in Canada


A secretive Canadian spy agency has been called out for spying on our sensitive personal data – without oversight. We need to put pressure on the government to stop this, and to tell Canadians exactly what’s going on. Stand up for your privacy by speaking out now while we have the government’s attention.
You probably saw on the news that a U.S. government agency has been caught secretly spying on the private communications of millions of people like you – through their cell phones,1 and through popular online services like Google, Facebook, and Skype.2
Now, The Globe And Mail is reporting that Canada has its own agency operating in near-total secrecy that appears to be doing the same thing – recklessly collecting and storing our most sensitive private information in giant databases.3
This is important: We need to know what sensitive private data is being collected and stored, and why. Call on the government to tell us the truth about their reckless online spying program immediately.
The key agency collecting our sensitive information is called the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC), which The Globe And Mail describes as an “ultrasecretive Canadian electronic-eavesdropping agency”.4
According to online surveillance expert Ron Deibert, CSEC spying gives them the power to “pinpoint not only who you are, but with whom you meet, with what frequency and duration, and at which locations.”5
Even the government’s own Privacy Commissioner’s Office has ominously stated, “we know very little specific information at this point, but we want to find out more.”6
We need to use this moment—when privacy issues are in the spotlight—to get answers. Tell the government that we deserve to know if our sensitive private information is being collected and stored in giant unsecured databases.
Whether it be pushing back against copyright censorship schemes, Big Telecom’s price-gouging, or threats to our online privacy – we know that when we work together there is nothing we cannot achieve.
Call on the government to stop this secretive spying scheme, and to tell Canadians exactly what’s going on. We deserve to know.
For our future,
Steve and Lindsey, on behalf of your OpenMedia.ca team
P.S. Fighting for our right to privacy has been a long haul, but we’re proud to have Canadians counting on us to keep our ears to the ground, and to keep amplifying your voices when it counts. It would mean a lot to our small team if you could chip what you can now. If you really believe in our work, please consider supporting our ongoing campaigns by making regular contributions as a special OpenMedia.ca Ally.
P.P.S. This is an international issue. OpenMedia is also joining with other groups to call on the U.S. government to stop its spying on the online activity of people around the world, including Canadians. Once you’ve raised your voice in Canada we hope you’ll also join the international campaign.

The Healing Walk


The tar sands are growing out of control - destroying the land, destabilizing our climate, and poisoning the water of the people living downstream and in the surrounding Athabasca Watershed.

Community leaders are taking matters into their own hands. On July 5th, First Nations and M├ętis leaders are hosting the Healing Walk, a gathering led by the Keepers of the Athabasca to focus attention on the need for healing in the region.1

The Keepers have invited Natural Resource Minister Joe Oliver and Alberta Premier Alison Redford to join them in the Healing Walk and meet face-to-face with the communities that are being poisoned by the reckless expansion of the tar sands.

Now, imagine if thousands of us join with the Keepers of the Athabasca and call for our political leaders to face the facts and work with local communities to steward the land in a way that is safe and sustainable for all generations.

Please stand with these communities and send a message calling on Oliver and Redford to join the Healing Walk on July 5th. If enough of us send a message, we can help hold our governments accountable to the communities they’re poisoning.

This passage is from a recent interview with Violet Clark, an 85-year old Elder from the Fort McMurray First Nation, which is downstream of the tar sands in Northern Alberta:

“The tar sands have impacted First Nations so badly. I am 85 years old and us old people are having such a hard time today because this is not what we knew growing up. We used to drink the water straight from the streams and creeks, and now no one can do that. We don’t know what is in the water now. I eat very little of the food I grew up on, moose, caribou, fish... it is all sick. We don’t even eat the berries and medicines anymore because there is too much pollution in the air and the land. When I was growing up people just died of old age, now there are so many sicknesses that were never here before.”

Instead of facing the facts, our government is looking the other way. Ignoring all the evidence, Natural Resource Minister Joe Oliver even claimed that water poisoned in tar sands tailing ponds will be made clean enough to drink!2

The situation is getting worse every day, click here to call on key government leaders to meet face-to-face with the communities they’re poisoning.

Tom Kaypacha Lescher, Healing Festivals, James Gilliland & UFO Skywatch ...

Trigger Warning: This email includes descriptions of the abuses suffered by rape victims.
Barrick will only offer victims gang raped by its security staff counselling and access to credit if they agree not to sue.
Tell the largest gold company in the world to compensate without conditions.

Barrick will only offer victims gang raped by its security staff counselling and access to credit if they agree not to sue.
Tell the largest gold company in the world to compensate without conditions.
Years after being sexually assaulted by Barrick Gold security staff, gang rape victims are finally being offered counselling and micro loans -- but only if they waive their right to sue the world’s largest gold company.
This corporate failure to address the abuses with dignity is no surprise since Canadian-owned Barrick’s chairman, Peter Munk, states that it is impossible for the company to police the behaviour of 5,550 employees in Papua New Guinea. Instead, he blames the community's culture for the gang rape of women, saying: "[G]ang rape is a cultural habit. Of course, you can't say that because it's politically incorrect. It's outrageous. We have to pretend that everyone's the same and cultures don't matter. Unfortunately, it's not that way."
As the retirement-aged chairman tries to turn his attention to his legacy beyond business, tell him to make sure that his company is protecting the victims of his staff’s behaviour.
Send a message to Barrick’s chairman: Gang rape is not a cultural habit. Offer compensation package to rape victims without conditions.
Details of abuses at Barrick’s Porgera mine are simply disgusting: one victim told Human Rights Watch that she was forced to swallow a condom used to rape her. Another woman testified that she was gang raped by six Barrick security personnel at the company’s waste dump after assailants shattered her teeth. Years after the abuse, Barrick finally offered compensation packages that do not reflect court settlements -- and only on the condition that the victims sign away their right to sue Barrick.
Barrick is particularly vulnerable to public pressure now. It's facing a "perfect storm" of problems, according to its CEO. In May, Barrick was fined a record amount by the Chilean government for a project that is already billions of dollars above cost. The Pascua Lama mine is facing widespread community protest in Chile and Argentina for threatening ancient Andean glaciers. On top of that, Barrick’s shareholders rejected an attempt by the company to pay its new chairman a $12 million dollar signing bonus because the company trading at a 20-year low.
Now, while Barrick’s public profile is at an all-time low, is the best time to call on the company to changes its social corporate behaviour. Lets join MiningWatch Canada, Oxfam, Friends of the Earth, and 80 other groups to speak out against Barrick’s demeaning response to rape victims.
Tell Barrick to offer gang rape victims compensation without conditions.
Thanks for all you do,
Kaytee, Marguerite, and the rest of us.

Stand Up for Tibet



6 June 2013world_leaders_unite_for_tibet.jpg


In less than 10 days, some of the world's most powerful leaders will gather in Northern Ireland for the G8 Summit.

This summit takes place amidst increasingly bullish behaviour by China to prevent governments meeting the Dalai Lama, and an ever-worsening situation in Tibet. On 27 May, Tenzin Sherab, a nomad from eastern Tibet, became at least the 118th Tibetan confirmed to have set light to himself in Tibet as an extreme act of protest against China's rule.
Next week Tibet activists in London will deliver a petition to David Cameron, as host of this year's G8 summit, calling for a more united front to nullify China's threats, and to stand together for Tibet.
Please sign the petition and then do 2 things:
1. Share the petition widely on your social networks (see social media plug-ins below)
2. Forward this message to at least one friend or family member and ask them tStand Up for Tibet
3. Get Active! The International Tibet Network is a global coalition of Tibet Groups. If you are not already involved in a Tibet Group, please locate one here!

In solidarity,

Gap and WalMart~Strange Bedfellows

Last week, Gap made a big announcement. After weeks of pressure by people across the globe to sign the binding Bangladesh Safety Accord and end death traps in its factories, Gap put out a press release about its big new plan: partnering with Walmart on a fake “safety plan” that is not accountable to anyone.
Gap thinks it can fool us with a cheap PR stunt. It’s wrong.
Help us undermine Gap's PR stunt by spreading the word about Gap and Walmart’s deadly “plan” and sharing this image on Facebook or forwarding this email to your friends.
Click here to share this image and help spread the word about Gap and Walmart's dishonesty:

Gap and Walmart are strange bedfellows. Walmart has a long record of unethical behavior, from brutally exploiting workers to discriminating against women to bribing Mexican officials, and it’s one of the most hated corporations in the world. Until recently, Gap was seen as a fairly responsible company.
Our sources tell us that Gap’s senior executives get really upset when they hear their company’s name mentioned in the same breath as Walmart. It means the brand they’ve tried to create for years is crumbling. But if they’re going to get in bed with Walmart to avoid taking responsibility for workers’ safety, they’re going to have to deal with the consequences. If Gap doesn’t like it, it can join the Bangladesh Safety Accord like dozens of brands already have.
Thanks for keeping the pressure on Gap to actually protect its workers from death traps,
Marguerite, Rob, Kaytee, and the rest of The Sum Of Us

P.S. We’ve created a new tumblr to spread the word about Gap and Walmart’s blossoming friendship: gapheartswalmart.tumblr.com. If you want to make your own submission (and make Gap’s bosses angry), just go here or here and email a link to reportback@sumofus.org. We’ll take the best submissions and put them on the tumblr.

Linda, breaking news:

The government of British Columbia has officially announced they can’t support Enbridge’s Northern Gateway oil pipeline and tanker proposal.

All your hard work just paid off – big time.

A little over two weeks ago, in the final days of the B.C. election, Christy Clark was campaigning on a promise to stand up for B.C., though her basic position on projects like Enbridge’s remained unclear. Today, her government finally provided clarity by submitting a final argument to the Enbridge review panel that lays bare the massive risks to B.C. from oil spills. “Trust me is not good enough,” it concludes.

The fight against Enbridge is not over. Ottawa could still attempt to force this unwanted project on an unwilling province. But for now, let’s celebrate.

This weekend, some of you will go fishing. Some of you will cruise our coast on a BC ferry, a seaplane or your own vessel – perhaps in the Great Bear Rainforest itself. Some of you may go for a run, or walk your dog along one of the many beaches of Vancouver Island or Metro Vancouver. In the interior of B.C., some of you may catch sight of the mighty Fraser River, Skeena River, or one of their many tributaries bringing snowmelt to the sea, waiting for the salmon to return.

No matter where you live, as you work or play this weekend please take a moment to acknowledge the significant victory that you and thousands of others have helped bring to B.C.’s waters and the communities and people who depend on them.

Is there more work to do? Yes. But for now Linda, take a moment to enjoy this positive step forward. B.C.’s Premier has made the right call today and our hope is we can move on to assessing better, less risky proposals for economic development.

For our coast,

Eric, Will, Karl, Lyndsey, Celine, Ben and Emma

P.S. Today’s announcement came in two packages: a short news release and a lengthy technical submission. The news release says the government’s position of No is to the project “as presented.” That suggests Enbridge could simply come back with new information or a new proposal and turn that no into a Yes.

But since the public hearings are now over, this would mean any changes Enbridge might make to their proposal would presumably be evaluated behind closed doors. After the backlash over the HST, we’re not expecting the Premier to make backroom changes to her position on such a controversial topic. Additionally, the technical submission leaves little wiggle room for Enbridge to maneuver. You can read further analysis in this blog.

Killing Whales for Japanese Dogs to Eat






One Icelandic man is about to start a hunt to harpoon fin whales, then chop them into pieces and ship their meat to Japan for dog food! The best way to stop this massacre is to shame the Dutch Prime Minister, who allows the traffic of whale meat through Rotterdam, to refuse this bloody cargo -- if the whalers can’t sell the meat, we can stop the hunt before it starts. They set to sea in days -- sign now and tell everyone:
Fin whales are magical giants of the sea. But in days, over 180 of these endangered species are set to be slaughtered by one tycoon and his buddies whose summer hobby is to harpoon them, chop them up and ship their meat through the Netherlands to Japan for dog food!

There is one way to stop the hunt before it starts -- you can’t dock a boat full of illegal whale carcasses just anywhere. German and Finnish authorities have shunned the shameful trade. Now, the Dutch are the linchpin. They care deeply about their reputation as environmental leaders, and are hoping this bloody trade won’t get any global attention. But if we expose it now and demand the Dutch authorities refuse the transfer of whale meat in their port, we can stop the whale massacre!

We have to act fast -- the whaling ships are due to start the hunt in days. Sign now and tell everyone to join -- let's build a one million strong campaign to Prime Minister Mark Rutte now warning him that we will create a media storm with giant whales on his doorstep unless he stops the transfer in Dutch docks:

http://www.avaaz.org/en/days_to_stop_the_whale_slaughter_global/?bVRUvbb&v=25324

These majestic creatures are the second largest animal on earth, they can grow to be as long as three buses and move through water like lightning. Their incredible combination of sleek, elegant power and speed earned them the nickname "greyhound of the sea". 

Tragically, whalers like Kristjan Loftsson have slaughtered hundreds of thousands and over 70% of the global population was wiped out. But since the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species and the International Whaling Commission bans were instated, their population has significantly increased. We can help them back from the brink if we stop them from being butchered for dog food!

Getting the Dutch to refuse Loftsson's bloody cargo in Rotterdam is the best way to stop the hunt before it starts as it will set a precedent for other European ports. So far the Dutch have allowed him to get away with this mass murder. Let's expose them now and put an end to this slaughter. Sign the petition and tell everyone -- let’s stop the trade before the first harpoon is fired:

http://www.avaaz.org/en/days_to_stop_the_whale_slaughter_global/?bVRUvbb&v=25324

Avaaz members have achieved tremendous things for biodiversity, from opposing the ivory trade to winning a ban on pesticides that were killing record numbers of bees. In 2010, Avaaz members were central to keeping the International Moratorium on Commercial Whaling intact -- now let’s stop this horrific hunt and keep marching toward a more humane world.

With hope,

Pascal, Lisa, Oliver, Alice, Ricken, Allison, David, Alaphia and the whole Avaaz team
