Petition Tag - being killed
Why are innocent people being killed on what we thought were safe streets? Monica's incident is the second fatality involving a teenage pedestrian in the last two weeks, and the third involving children pedestrians in just more than a month.
Why are the innocent children of Clarksville being killed? Monica and friends went to the Mini Mart almost everyday but you know the one safety measure that could have prevented this is not there. In Clarksville the only places we have crosswalks are in shopping areas. Maybe if there was a crosswalk where these children died a young life would have been saved.
This petition was started on July 25th, 2003. I started it after reading something about dolphins being killed for tuna. Animals have rights, that includes Dolphins. Yes, I see that fish are still being killed for tuna, but the only way to stop making dolphin tuna is to stop making tuna all together.
This petition is to make major companies stop killing and destroying the gorilla habitiat for coltan, and also to create gorilla-friendly products.
Recent price rises of this ore has lead to wide scale unregulated mining of it in the forests of Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the same forests that were home to 86% of the worlds eastern lowland gorillas.
The forests are being destroyed and gorillas are being killed and snared for 'bushmeat' to feed the hundreds of miners and to sell at markets. Recent reports indicate that up to 90% of eastern lowland gorillas may have been killed in the last 3 years. Fears are that without immediate political action, they may be headed towards an inescapable extinction.
