Daily Voice : End Slavery in the U.S. Tomato Industry
« Reply #64 on: June 27, 2013, 01:04:41 AM »
End Slavery in the U.S. Tomato Industry

Florida's tomato farms supply 50% of all U.S. fresh tomatoes? but have also been called America's 'ground zero for slavery.' Countless workers are held against their will, threatened with violence and forced to haul hundreds of heavy tomato buckets a day for little to no pay.? 



Right now is the worst part of Florida's tomato picking season - the days are hot and there is tremendous pressure on growers to turn a profit, making conditions ripe for worker exploitation.



Thankfully, a new solution called the Fair Food Program enforces a policy of zero tolerance for slavery on tomato farms.



But a major U.S. supermarket chain, Publix Super Markets, refuses to support the Fair Food Program. Publix continues to buy tomatoes from growers whose workers still toil beyond the reach of the Fair Food Program's proven protection from modern slavery.



Tell Publix to make the right decision to join the Fair Food Program and fight modern slavery in the U.S. tomato industry.

Tell Congress: Protect Wolves in the Lower 48

Wolf recovery across the United States is in jeopardy.

In the past two years, federal protections for wolves have been removed in the northern Rocky Mountains and western Great Lakes, leaving management decisions to individual states. States in these regions have approved aggressive hunting and trapping seasons designed to drastically reduce recently recovered populations. In 2012 alone, more than 1,200 wolves were killed under the state plans. State management programs are as gruesome as they are ineffectual.

U.S. Representatives Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) and Ed Markey (D-Mass.) are circulating a letter opposing hasty removal of wolf protections and U.S. Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.) has already signed on as a lead co-signatory.

Sign today to call on Congress to oppose the removal of Endangered Species Act protections of wolves in the lower 48 states, then call your member of Congress at (202) 224-3121 and urge them to sign onto Reps. DeFazio, Markey and Grijalva's letter.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint This Summer!

Summer is the perfect time to consciously make changes in our lives to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, which cause climate change.  Warmer weather and longer days offer a great opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint by taking small steps that make a big difference.



Take the Summer Carbon Slimdown pledge, then share it with your friends!



The Summer Carbon Slimdown Pledge



I will measure my carbon footprint and will take one or more of the following actions to reduce it:


- I will go meatless twice a week for the entire summer.

- I will adjust my thermostat up by 2 degrees for the entire summer.

- I will walk, bike, take public transportation or carpool to work 1 day each week this summer.

- I will wash my laundry in cold water and line dry at least 1/2 of it all summer.
- I will go Zero Waste for one month.

UK: Stop Funding Bullfights with Taxes

Every year, £110 million of taxpayer money is given to Spanish farmers who use their pastures to raise fighting bulls. Under the guise of "Common Agriculture Policy," these federal subsidies are the key support that keeps the bullfighting industry from financial ruin.


Rejecting bullfighting is about more than revenue: it's about rejecting torture. "Standard" treatments for fighting bulls include blinding them, beating them, sawing off their horns, administering heavy laxatives, and depriving them of sight, all before the fight.


Afterwards, as you probably know, the bulls are surrounded by several men and brutally stabbed to death -- in what is unarguably the bloodiest spectacle. Even bloodless bullfights conclude with stressed and injured animals who suffer.


Financial analysts and social commentators agree: government funding has no place in heartless bloodsports. Tell the government that we won't fund their misguided bullfighting subsidies any longer.

Stop the Cruel and Unnecessary Killing of Badgers

When some cattle became ill with a form of tuberculosis (bovine TB), they started to infect others, and then started to infect the wild animals around them, too. In a desperate bid to tackle the issue of bovine TB, the Government decided to undertake badger cull trials.


Scientific studies have shown that culling badgers would be of little help in reducing bovine TB. It could actually make things worse in some areas. That means the culls will result in the needless slaughter of thousands of British badgers.


Polling has shown that more of the British public is opposed to the cull than supports it. It is vital that our MPs understand the widespread opposition to turning badgers into scapegoats for a problem they didn't cause. Badgers are native wild animals that need protection, not persecution.


Tell your MP that badgers shouldn't be the victims of a policy that won't work.

No Senior Should Need a Food Bank

The need for Canada's charitable food assistance programs has increased by 31% in just four years. The 2008-09 recession caused a dramatic spike in hunger and, almost 4 years later, food bank use remains at record levels.



Many seniors watched helplessly as the recession battered their retirement savings. For the most vulnerable seniors, public pensions are simply inadequate in the face of the rising cost of food, housing and energy.



Canadian seniors need our support. Tell the federal government to increase the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) and ensure that no vulnerable senior has to use a food bank.



Hunger is devastating for those living through it, and impacts our society as a whole. To address it, we need to be more effective at how we help people become more self-sufficient. We also need to be more supportive of those who need help over the longer term.



Tell the federal government to increase the GIS so that no senior falls below the poverty line.

Support Renewable Fuel

Every time you go to the gas pump you feel it.



Your wallet is a bit lighter, and the oil companies are a little richer. And that feeling keeps getting worse and worse.



Oil is ruining our economy, our environment, our health, and our national security. But what choice do we have? What we need is more options at the pump, and that's exactly what renewable fuel provides.



As long as oil remains the primary way we fuel our cars and trucks, we'll be stuck paying high prices set by an increasingly volatile global market. It's time to break oil's monopoly and rally together to create a movement against the oil industry. Get the facts, join the fight, and sign up now to support renewable fuel.

Daily Voice : India: Take Violence Against Women Seriously

India: Take Violence Against Women Seriously

The rape of a five-year-old in Delhi has sparked new protests in India demanding more action from the government to curb the nation's rape epidemic. Allegedly, local police refused to help find the missing child, who was left for dead for 48 hours after her assault.



India has done a lot of soul searching in the wake of a horrible rape and murder last December that exposed a national, pervasive problem with sexual assault against women. The country recently passed new, harsher punishments for rapists, including 20-year mandatory minimum sentences and the death penalty for repeated offenders and in cases where the victim dies.



But the recent tragic case in Delhi shows that these punishments aren't enough. Women's advocates and analysts warn that unless police culture is changed to take violence against women seriously, the assaults will continue.



Urge Indian lawmakers to work to ensure women get support from local law enforcement when it comes to pursuing their own safety and, if necessary, justice.
