Holocaust Memorial Day – 27th January 2016.

The world is marking Holocaust Memorial Day today, remembering the millions of people who were killed in Auschwitz and other concentration camps.

Events from the past; now history.  Today’s citizens must not be blamed for these events happening.  But it must never be forgotten; as it shows the endless cruelty of man – the alleged most intelligent species on the planet, but without doubt, also the most cruel.

Animals do not kill for enjoyment, humans do.

Who therefore, in reality, is the most ‘intelligent’ ?

USA: Super Bowl and Destroyed Rainforests – You Bet There Is A Link !

It’s 2016 and we’re back — taking on Doritos by crashing the biggest sporting event in the US again!

Last year, we made a video that looks suspiciously like one that could be in the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl marketing campaign — where budding filmmakers are pitted against each other to create the most Doritos-y commercial to be aired during the biggest sports event in the United States.

Our video demanded that Doritos and its parent company PepsiCo adopt a responsible deforestation-free palm oil policy, and it racked up a whopping 25 million views.

It worked! PepsiCo came out with a new palm oil policy at the end of last year! But it still contains massive loopholes — that’s why our fight isn’t over yet.

As the main sponsor of the Super Bowl,

all eyes are going to be on PepsiCo. And that means it is especially vulnerable to pressure from us. If all of us share this video right now, we can make this video go viral and force PepsiCo to act.

Can you help us reach 50 million views — and force PepsiCo to act? Share this video now.

Under PepsiCo’s new policy, the rainforest will still be destroyed, endangered species like the Sumatran tiger and orangutan will still suffer, and workers — many of them children — will still be exploited.

This is because the policy does not cover PepsiCo’s business partner in Indonesia, Indofood, which produces all of PepsiCo’s products in South-East Asia.

We know that pressuring PepsiCo works. Our video made waves — it got more than three times the views of the ten official finalists in the Crash the Superbowl competition — combined. It forced PepsiCo onto the defensive — and that’s why we have to do it again.

PepsiCo’s palm oil policy is disappointing, but we can push the snack food giant to go the whole way and use only conflict-free palm oil. The SumOfUs community has already been instrumental in transforming the palm oil industry — we’ve made McDonald’s and Yum! Brands (owner of KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell) commit to zero-deforestation policies.

Now let’s make PepsiCo do the right thing.

Share this powerful video with your friends now.

Thanks for all that you do,

Carys, Kat, Sondhya, Hanna, and the team at SumOfUs

USA: Burns, Oregon is a community under siege.

UPDATE – 2030hrs GMT (UK):



Dear Mark,

Burns, Oregon is a community under siege.

Armed extremists from several states have flooded this small town and the nearby Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, heeding the battle call of the Bundy militia.

Locals have been traumatized by this armed occupation — residents live in fear of these gun-toting thugs, and community leaders, faced with death threats and vandalism, have sent their families out of town for safety.

I’ve been here for two weeks, and have seen Burns residents stand up bravely to these bullies and tell them to go home. But the militants only dig in deeper — and now they’re looking to export these kinds of armed standoffs to other communities across the West.

We can’t let that happen. The Center for Biological Diversity is in Oregon, organizing on-the-ground protests against the occupation and rallies in other towns in favor of keeping public lands public. We’re in a pitched fight — over not just the Malheur but the future of other public lands in the United States — against those who would rather see our natural heritage turned over to profiteers so it can be logged, mined, grazed and bulldozed.

You can help us take on the Bundys and their ilk with a contribution to the Center’s Public Lands Defense Fund. The situation took a troubling turn over the weekend, when it became clear the Bundy clan wants to sow more armed conflicts across the West. They’re pressing ranchers to stop paying federal grazing fees and, in exchange, the militia will meet attempts to enforce the law with the threat of violence. It’s clear the Bundys relish these conflicts, complete with closed schools, shuttered government services and terrorized civilians, not to mention the desecration of public lands, wildlife refuges and native sacred sites.

They’ve moved from the illegal seizure of the Malheur to coordinating an active terror network whose openly stated aim is to overthrow the federal government and steal our public lands.

There’s a bigger picture here: In Congress, Utah Republicans Jason Chaffetz and Rob Bishop, both heavily funded by the oil industry, have proposed to sacrifice millions of acres of our land to drilling and fracking. They want to twist our laws and do with the pen what the Bundys are attempting to do with the gun. If we don’t stop them, they can do far more damage than what’s happening in Oregon. We need your help at this critical moment to protect and save our public lands. Make a contribution to the Center’s Public Lands Defense Fund. We’ll put your donation to work opposing the takeover of our lands by armed extremists and their allies in Congress.

Author and Oregonian Ursula K. Le Guin recently wrote:

“Ammon Bundy and his bully boys aren’t trying to free federal lands, but to hold them hostage. I can’t go to the Malheur refuge now, though as a citizen of the United States, I own it and have the freedom of it. That’s what public land is: land that belongs to the public — me, you, every law-abiding American.”

For the wild,

P.S. These scofflaws lack any respect for the natural and cultural heritage of sacred spaces like the Malheur. They’ve been pawing through artifacts belonging to the Burns Paiute Tribe and bulldozing a road through a fenced-off archaeological site. Ryan Bundy claimed a few days ago that American Indians had “lost their claim” to the land and that “the current culture is the most important.” It’s been inspiring to see the Burns Paiute leaders standing up to these bigoted bullies.
