Closely related to this topic, we’ve added some new links to the website that we’d like you to check out including:

Support Daniel McGowan

Support Walter Bond

Support Marie Mason

Support Steve Murphy

These men and women have sacrificed their freedom to stand up to the destruction our government and corporations are inflicting on animals and our planet.  None of them have injured another human, yet they are often given lengthy prison sentences in comparison with other crimes. (Marie Mason is serving 22 years for charges relating to damaging an office connected to GMO research and destroying a piece of logging equipment.)  Marie’s support site makes a great point when they say that supporting her does not mean agreeing with the actions that she took — but it does mean opposing the fear-mongering tactics of the federal government and the outrageous sentences they have imposed.  How far is this repression going to go?  It’s incredibly scary to think about.

  2. I find spaying and neutering of animals cruel. Please stop this practice

  3. It is alleged that the rental companies wait until it is convenient for them to
    get safety recall repairs. You can identify the right attachment that suits your specific application and save cost on buying independent forklifts.
    For this reason forklifts operators must be properly trained in the operation of the
    specific vehicles they are to operate.

    a lot of work? I’ve no understanding of programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, if you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic nevertheless I simply had to ask. Many thanks!
