Daily Voice : Save Orangutans from Barbaric Cruelty and Abuse
« Reply #120 on: October 30, 2013, 01:00:27 PM »
Save Orangutans from Barbaric Cruelty and Abuse

In Indonesia, rainforest’s cover 60% of the land but are quickly disappearing. Legal and illegal loggers are stripping the forests bare for wood and clearing the land to make way for palm oil plantations and farm land.


As rainforest destruction  continues at an alarming rate, orang-utans or “man of the forest” as their name means, are forced to go into villages in search of food. Once entering a village they face capture and severe abuse.


Farmers are ruthlessly killing adult orangutans to prevent them from eating their crops leaving many baby orangutans to be orphaned in the forest to die.


Save the Orangutan!

Daily Voice : Protect Domestic Workers in the US
« Reply #121 on: October 31, 2013, 01:05:38 PM »
Protect Domestic Workers in the US

On September 5, 2013, the Domestic Worker's Convention treaty went into effect, offering basic labor protection to millions of domestic workers around the world. Countries including the Philippines, Mauritius, and Nicaragua took this important step to address some of the worst worker rights violations and abuses.



The United States has yet to sign the treaty, even though domestic workers in the US are excluded from labor laws that protect other workers.



Countries who ratify the treaty are obligated to ensure basic labor rights for domestic workers, including a minimum wage, clear contracts, and protection from employer violence. It's time the US make sure all workers in this country are protected from labor abuse.



Domestic workers are especially vulnerable to modern-day slavery and human trafficking. They are often forced to work without pay and often endure sexual and physical abuse from their employers, who prey on their vulnerability and lack of legal protection.



Add your voice to stop labor exploitation and trafficking in the US.
Let President Obama know that you want the US to ratify the Domestic Workers Convention treaty.

Tell the Chicken Industry: Stop Putting Profits Above Animal Welfare

Industrial breeding has created chickens that grow at a freakishly rapid rate: up to three times faster than just 60 years ago. These huge birds commonly have no room to move, crammed by the tens of thousands into dark sheds.


Many chickens collapse under their own weight and spend much of their lives lying in their own waste, with open sores and wounds, unable to walk. These unhealthy conditions could potentially increase the risk of chickens contracting dangerous foodborne bacteria like Salmonella. A 2010 analysis of fresh, whole chicken bought at grocery stores nationwide found that two-thirds harbored Salmonella and/or Campylobacter, the leading bacterial causes of foodborne disease in humans.


Switching to slower-growing chickens raised in better conditions means healthier birds, less suffering, and birds that may be less likely to transmit foodborne illnesses.


It's up to us to speak out. Tell the chicken industry to stop putting profits above animal welfare and switch to slower-growing chickens raised in healthier, more humane conditions.

Endangered Albatrosses Are Getting Tangled in Fishing Lines: You Can Help

Albatrosses and petrels spend years soaring over the open ocean, coming to land only to nest. But these magnificent birds are some of the most endangered birds on the planet and often die tragic deaths, becoming entangled in fishing lines and drowning.



The solution is simple.



Send an email to your Members of Congress and urge them to support the Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels.

Tell the International Olympic Committee to Stand Up to Hate in Russia

In February, the Winter Olympics will open in Sochi, Russia. They will give a world stage and sanction to a country that is repressing the rights of its own citizens. A Russian law passed this year punishes LGBT persons, and anyone who speaks on their behalf in front of children.



The International Olympic Committee (IOC) - the multi-billion dollar organization that runs the Olympics has the ability to speak out against this law. Not only that, it has a duty to do so. Its own charter swears to uphold human dignity and reject discrimination.



Until now the International Olympic Committee has lacked the spine to take the necessary actions. It has hid behind vague assurances from the Russian government, and refused to stand up for its own values. But if the fans speak out, the International Olympic Committee - and its vital commercial sponsors - will be forced to listen, and forced to stand up for what is right.



Join Human Rights Watch in demanding that 2014 are not the Olympics of hate.

Daily Voice : Act Now to End Child Trafficking in the United States

Act Now to End Child Trafficking in the United States

They may have gone to school in your town or worked in your neighborhood. They may have even slept on a bench in your local park before they were stolen by traffickers.

Many people mistakenly believe that human trafficking only happens on foreign soil, but the painful truth is that trafficking is a monstrous issue in the United States.

In fact, more than 35,000 kids are at risk of being trafficked within the United States every year, many of them young children. And according to the U.S. Department of Justice, nearly 85% of victims in confirmed sex trafficking cases are U.S. citizens - mostly homeless kids.

We can change the statistics and abolish child trafficking, but we need to act now. Ask your Senator to make passing anti-trafficking legislation a priority. Vulnerable children across America can't wait.

Daily Voice : India: Implement a Rhino Conservation Plan!

India: Implement a Rhino Conservation Plan!

An increase of rhino poaching activity in India, Bhutan, Indonesia, Malaysia and Nepal has moved the five nations to discuss a plan to increase the population of Asian rhinos by at least three percent. Most one-horned rhinos live in India and Nepal and have a population between 3,300 and 3,350. Unfortunately, India's national parks have recently lost over five rhinos to illegal poaching.


At a meeting on October 3, 2013, the IUCN Species Survival Commission discussed plans for helping India protect and restore its rhino population. Strategies include increasing protection in areas with rhino populations and possible transportation areas, and properly maintaining rhino habitats.


Please sign the petition to urge India to take the IUCN Species Survival Commission's advice and protect their rhinos from illegal poaching!

Daily Voice : Stop the Superbugs! End the Overuse of Antibiotics on Factory Farms

Stop the Superbugs! End the Overuse of Antibiotics on Factory Farms

The superbugs are coming, and they're being bred on factory farms.



It's become a common practice on factory farms to feed livestock regular, low doses of antibiotics even when they're not sick, in part because their living conditions are so horrifyingly unhealthy. The problem is that some bacteria survive these low doses, and over time, they become resistant to antibiotics...even the antibiotics that we use to treat diseases in humans.



These antibiotic-resistant "superbugs" pose a serious threat to human health. You can help stop them by signing the petition to put an end to using medically important antibiotics on healthy livestock.
