1. Stop Killing & Persecution of Muslims in Burma (Myanmar)

The most persecuted minority in the world. The 1.1 million Rohingya Muslims squeezed precariously into the north-west state of Rakhine, in mainly Buddhist Burma, bordering majority Muslim Bangladesh, are stateless and unwanted.
Neither country will give them citizenship even though their families’ roots in modern-day Rakhine, once called Arakan, can be traced back to the Eighth Century.
Since World War Two they have been treated increasingly by Burmese authorities as illegal, interloping Bengalis, facing apartheid-like conditions that deny them free movement or state education while government forces intermittently drive out and slaughter them.
Rape, murder, arson, and ripping Rohingya babies from their mothers’ arms and throwing them into rivers and fire.
The government of Burma, also known as Myanmar, blocked UN agencies from delivering vital food, water and medicine supplies to 250,000 Rakhine residents desperately in need.
This must Stop!
We as the humankind have to take action.
Please bring justice back in this world and with your help we can acheive sending this message of support and expression of unity to the world leaders,

Thank you and best regards,

Cause of Children

2. Stop Xenophobia and Genocide in South Africa


Massive killing of Foreigners in South Africa!
We have seeing increasing barbaric violent attacks against foreign nations, migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers, resulting in horrible massacre and deaths in South Africa.

South African authorities are unable to prevent and address racist and xenophobic attacks and to hold perpetrators accountable.
Here are video proofs of what is happening:

Tuerie massive des étrangers en Afrique du Sud!
Nous assistons à une croissance des attaques violentes barbares contre des étrangers, des migrants, des réfugiés et des demandeurs d'asile, ce qui a provoque d'horribles massacres et des morts en Afrique du Sud.

Les autorités sud-africaines sont incapables de empêcher ces attaques racistes et xénophobes et de tenir les auteurs responsables.

Voici les preuves en video de ce qui se passe:


Today a 7 year old boy was beaten and burnt to death for stealing garri (cassava flour). A lady was killed for stealing a cellphone sometime ago, Four young men were slaughtered in daylight for allegedly stealing gadgets some years back in Rivers state and nothing was done to the perpetrators. A woman was lynched in the northern part of Nigeria recently and the accused acquitted without justice for the dead. In Akwa Ibom, children are accused of witchcraft and thereafter summarily murdered, All in daylight, All with bystanders, filming and taking pictures while a human is snuffed to death.

This has to stop! These crimes against humanity are rarely investigated and the bystanders are never even considered as accomplices.

This is a barbaric act and the earlier something is done about this the better because the unity preached is threatened by such acts.

A legislative policy or law should be enacted for such heinous crime and the courts should be the only place to seek for justice whatsoever.

We simply can't take laws into our hands.

Sign this petition today and lend your voice to this cause so we put an end to this.. It could be you or me tomorrow... God forbid.


Please help us stop the euthanasia of thousands of Pit Bulls and dogs that even resemble Pit Bulls.

Statistics show that this kind of action does not help nor stop incidents from happening!

Knowledge and being a responsible pet owner is the key.

5. Don't scrap Act protecting pregnant women and babies in the UK

Without consulting its members, the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) is supporting a campaign recently launched by BPAS to totally remove abortion from criminal law.

At present, there are 180,000 legal abortions a year in the UK. BPAS is now calling for ‘the Victorian-era legislation that criminalizes abortion to be scrapped’ (see RCM’s website at That is, they are calling for abortions which are at present illegal to be made legal.

If this law is scrapped, it is not clear how people traffickers, violent partners, those who sell abortion pills online and anyone else who either coerces a woman into an illegal abortion or convinces her to take harmful illegally-produced drugs while she is in a vulnerable state can be prosecuted.

6. Pledge NOT To Travel To Florida For Recreation Or Business Until Former BAN Against Florida Black Bear Hunting Is RESTORED!

On October 24, 2015, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) – with the full support of the government of the State of Florida – essentially allowed “trophy hunters” to wage war against the peaceful and non-aggressive Florida Black Bear despite many months of passionate pleas by more than 175,000 concerned citizens. To add insult to injury, the FWC deceitfully labeled the event as “conservation.” What did these Bears do to warrant their destruction? Nothing! They had not killed a human or pet, nor had they harmed other wildlife or livestock. Worse yet, although the FWC established a “kill limit” of 320 Bears, as many as 400 to 500 Bears were MURDERED, many of whom were lactating mothers with cubs … some of which later died because they were too young to survive on their own. This MASSACRE made national headlines.

How could such a tragedy occur? First of all, the FWC sold 3,778 bear hunting licenses for just 320 Bears. With that many eager participants salivating for an opportunity to pose next to a fresh kill, the Bears didn’t stand a chance. Secondly, the hunting administration plans were created and implemented with such incompetence that two local hunting associations refused to attend the hunt and discouraged their members to do the same. Thirdly, countless numbers of Bears were lured onto private property and slaughtered there, then secretly carted away by hunters in order to avoid inspectors, who were comparatively small in number and completely overwhelmed by the management demands presented by several thousand motivated hunters. The FWC was repeatedly warned about the “Armageddon” their grossly inept hunting plans would cause to the Bears, but they simply did not care.

To make the GENOCIDAL HUNT legally possible, the FWC, with Governor Rick Scott’s tacit approval, terminated the 21-year ban against bear hunting. Despite a massive public outcry in opposition, the FWC took this action even though they publically admitted that the hunt would do little or NOTHING to prevent future altercations between the Bears and humans. The FWC also intentionally ignored the documented fact that because of fast-paced deforestation from residential and commercial construction, dramatic reductions in food supplies due to climate change, and an alarmingly high number of deaths due to vehicular collisions, Bear populations, believed by experts to already be at all-time lows, are already being aggressively reduced. Instead of employing the various non-lethal, “compassionate conservation” methods which have been scientifically proven to reduce or eliminate human-animal conflicts, as other jurisdictions have successfully done, the FWC has chosen the cruel and barbaric practice of allowing bloodthirsty “recreational hunters” to terrorize and KILL innocent, non-threatening Florida Black Bears.

What is the purpose of the hunt? FWC and Governor Scott’s have FALSELY claimed that the justification for the trophy hunt is that there are too many Black Bears and the concern that negative contacts with humans is higher. The real reason for the hunt is to placate commercial land developers who are interested in turning more and more of Florida’s vanishing pristine wilderness into commercial parks, hotels, high-priced housing, theme parks, fancy condominiums, shopping malls, and even fracking location – all in the name of PROFIT. And, of course, the wealthier that land developers become, the greater their election campaign contributions will be for those running for elected positions in the Florida Government.

SADLY, despite world condemnation regarding last year’s trophy hunt, the FWC is in the process of authorizing yet ANOTHER DIASTEROUS HUNT in October 2016 against the innocent and under-populated Florida Bear. Trophy hunters everywhere are waiting with bated breath so they can purchase new permits for another SLAUGHTER, which experts believe will result in a death toll even greater than last year’s. In the heartless pursuit of millions of dollars of tax revenue from a highly lucrative, multibillion dollar tourist industry, the Florida Government FALSELY peddles itself as a travel destination that supposedly respects and honors its wildlife and environment. They’re hoping that tourists and business travelers coming to Florida will simply IGNORE the systematic destruction of the bears, panthers, manatees and other wildlife creatures and their habitats. In other words, “spend your money and SHUT UP.”

To save the Florida Black Bear and their immensely important contribution to the environment, we must band together and DEMAND that the anti-hunting ban, which until last year, was working very well for 21 years for all stakeholders, be RESTORED. We must also advocate for the utilization of non-lethal, “compassionate” conservation techniques, instead of resorting to the simple-minded and grossly ignorant strategy of bear killing. In particular, non-residents with a concern for the protection and preservation of wildlife who have plans to travel to Florida for business or recreation need to MAKE THEIR VOICE HEARD and consider whether they are interested in contributing millions of dollars in tax revenue to a state government planning to KILL more Bears for the sake of land developers, despite the vast majority of its citizens OPPOSING the hunt.

7. Stop the ongoing genocide of the Hazara and Shia Muslim community in Quetta, Pakistan

I belong to the Hazara community from Quetta, Pakistan. We had been living peacefully in Pakistan for the last 100 years along with other community Member

Hazara’s belonging to a Shia sect of Islam are vibrant, law abiding, patriotic and productive community located in Quetta Pakistan, currently having a significant population of 0.5million to 0.6million, which makes around 6-7% of total population of Balochistan and around 40-50% of Quetta district.

With literacy rates of over 95% in both males and females, Hazara professionals have significant contributions in private sector, public sector, armed forces and sports. The details of such contributions can be found here .

Over the last 15 years, there is ongoing genocide of Hazara and shia Community member in Quetta, Balochistan. Since 1999, over 2,000 community members have been killed, over 4000 critically injured and thousands orphaned and widowed. Apparently all the killings are claimed by Militant organization, Lashkar e Jhangvi . All of these killings took place in every part of Quetta city and its outskirts, in the center of the city to the remote streets, from target killing of a single person to killing of 150 persons by the huge explosion of highly militarized 1000kg liquid explosive inside the congested population. Surprisingly all the killings took place under the heavy presence of law enforcement agencies, especially the Paramilitary forces.

Shia Hazara citizens of Pakistan in Quetta are living in siege now, where any movement outside their enclosed area means being shot dead, despite the heavy presence and deployment of Police and Paramilitary forces, these forces have been seen working hand to hand like allies with terrorists inside the main bazars of Quetta. The killings take place in broad daylight, right in front of law enforcing agencies and the supposedly "unknown killers" easily manage to escape.

It is no secret that leaders of banned militant organizations like Ramzan Mangel and his armed terrorists are enjoying full state security, liberty to openly declare Shia as infidels and deliver life threatening and hatred-filled speeches in rallies in main bazars of Quetta, boasting about killing Shia Hazara community members.

These terrorists have been carrying these activities in front of Police and state Paramilitary forces (the FC) , and the state paramilitary officers of FC have been seen standing/walking hand-in-hand with the leaders of banned terrorist organizations. They freely move in the city and posts their murderous confession in major newspapers and social media. The friendly connections of paramilitary forces the FC and Police with banned terrorist organizations in main bazars of Quetta indicates that the state of Pakistan is sponsoring the sectarian genocide of Shia Hazara Muslims in Baluchistan. This leads us to believe that state is somehow involved and assisting all the acts of terrorism.

Hazara community has been forced to leave their homes and have been going through hazardous Journey toward Australia to find safe and peace for his family. Over Thousand refugees have perished in the sea, while in the hope to find a peaceful life for their family members.

When they reach Australia after going through all these sufferings, they are put in the detention center along with their family members, where they have to wait for years before they are released in the community.

8. Justice for Muslims in Burma

This petition is about the unlawful and inhumane killings of Muslims in Burma. Also their rights are being snacthed and they are brutally treated like they do not have a right to exist.

9. Stop police from murdering unarmed citizens

To cite just one statistics, police killed more people in the U.S. in April than Great Britain did in the entire 20th century. We have all seen other statistics equally alarming.

It is the nearly weekly videos of obvious killings, from breaking the neck of a young man who did nothing wrong, to killing two teens whose car had backfired and took 62 chasing cars, over 100 cops, hundreds of shots fired at the unarmed kids on a date, the officer who shot 42 times through windshield of stopped car that finally killed them released by judge who found him not guilty, to shooting and then planting evidence of a taser on the body of what had been a fleeing suspect fearful because of owed child support but stopped for a rear light being out, to choking a man to death for selling loose smokes, to goes on and on.

So far, the cop who planted evidence has been charged and the cops who broke the mans neck have been charged. In no other case was a cop even charged for killing an unarmed person.

10. Stop the death of innocent people

Innocent people are being killed by extremists groups for religious reasons.

11. Please Protect Vampire Bats

Believe it or not, vampire bats actually exist. It's true! Wild vampire bats are mainly, if not solely, found in South America. However, they do not suck blood, rather, they lap it up like a cat lapping up water.

Recently, there has been a bit of an issue about some people wanting these bats to be "culled" (the "polite" term for "killed off") because of a disease known as rabies. While it is true that the bats can and do carry rabies, research has shown that killing off the bats could actually increase the significance of rabies. Plus, there is an alternative to killing the poor creatures; vaccination.

I can remember reading about how rabies has been eradicated in at least one part of the world by putting out meat laced with rabies vaccine. Animals then ate the meat and, thus, became immune to the disease. Could some sort of rabies vaccine not be put into blood somehow and put out in mass proportions for the vampire bats to feed upon? This would not necessarily have to involve the killing of other animals. Could we not use the blood of animals that are going to die anyway or use blood donations? I know that some of what I said there may sound crazy, but could my ideas please at least be considered?

Also, I have heard that, although they can carry rabies, vampire bats are actually immune to rabies and Ebola. Would it not be more useful to study these bats and their immunity to those diseases in order to help make a potential future without rabies and/or Ebola come sooner?

Vampire bats are not evil and are not nearly as bad as you may think. First of all, they do not normally drain their prey dry. They normally just take enough to sustain themselves (about two tablespoonfuls, or so I think) and then leave. Also, their saliva possesses something that thins the blood out, allowing them and, possibly, other bats to feed. Believe it or not, there is an idea that this could help thin out blood clots and/or help stroke patients.

As well as this, vampire bats will sometimes help other bats by feeding them when they are too ill or injured to get blood by themselves* and adopting orphaned young.

* I read somewhere that vampire bats might sometimes kick out roost-mates who do not do their part, but I still feel that there is no need to "cull" these fascinating creatures. Like I was saying, they can be very good animals and could possibly be of some medical value to people as well.

12. Stop Law Enforcement From Shooting Dogs

In the last few years there have been an increase of cops killing family dogs all across America.

There are several videos of police shooting and killing innocent dogs that are not even doing anything, and it is so unnecessary.

All you have to do is do a search online and you will see how many dogs were shot and killed when they did not need to be. We hear about this daily, it is happening everywhere and it's because no one is doing a thing about it. These officers are shooting innocent animals right in front of the families and children.

Majority of the shootings that take place the dogs are not even doing anything, we also hear about the officers slashing the dogs by the throat, something has to be done about this, the police policy states they are allowed to shoot if necessary....they are taking advantage and shooting even though they did not need to do so.....These are family members. These aren't "just dogs".

There is another solution. Animal control officers should be called to assist. Police officers need proper training on how to humanely secure the dog.

This is wrong!

13. Stop Terrorism in Libya

Since UN intervention in helping us grasping our hopes toward a free and democratic Libya, the UN took a step back from the vacuum that created after the dismantle of the previous regime.

Now we - the innocent people- are under the mercy of different terrorist groups such as Ansari AL sharia, Muslim Brotherhood and several other Militia. UN as well as USA and EU should step up and shoulder the responsibility and complete the task by not letting these armed militia seizing the freedom of the public. We lost everything; freedom, security and the souls of our people.

USA and EU should exert a political and economic punitive measures on these armed groups particularly the MB that seems to be in alliance with the western agenda.

14. Stop killing Ukrainian people: stop this senseless violence

What is going on in the Ukraine is a tragedy. It has to stop. Protests in Ukraine have turned into bloody crackdown. After a meeting with Ukrainian President Yanukovich opposition supporter A. Yatsenyuk said that Maidan will not be stormed. On Thursday 2014.02.20 peace between Ukraine government and its people was broken. Officers opened fire on protestants again. Numbers of dead and injured people are growing.

Witnesses have told that some died as a result of single gunshot wounds, typical of sniper fire. Officials said that one policeman had died and that 67 police troops had been captured by protesters. Eyewitnesses have told international news agencies that they have counted between 21 and 27 protesters' bodies after clashes in Kiev.

Video footage has emerged apparently showing snipers firing on demonstrators who had been trying to retake their protest camp in independence Square. Officials said more than 20 policemen had also been injured. Witnesses reported live rounds, petrol bombs and water cannon being used at Independence Square during this morning's clashes.

An opposition Twitter feed posted an image of 13 bodies in a makeshift mortuary in the lobby of the Hotel Ukraine. Earlier, several dozen protesters were using the lobby as a triage center for the wounded, and a priest arrived. Protesters - some of them armed - asked hotel guests for blankets to use as bandages.

A statement on the presidential website blames the opposition for starting the violence, saying the "calls for a truce and dialogue were nothing but a way of playing for time to mobilise and arm militants from Maidan [Independence Square]". Opposition leaders called the violence "an act of provocation" by the authorities.

15. Justice for Dalit mass killing in Bihar, India

On a chilly December night 16 years ago, 58 villagers of Laxmanpur-Bathe in south Bihar’s Arwal district were murdered in cold blood by Ranvir sena the militia of the upper castes, Brahmins. All the victims of the massacre were Dalits and many among them children, the youngest being a one-year-old, and pregnant women.

The incident shocked the nation. Former Indian President late KR Narayanan called it a ‘national shame’. Now it seems no one killed the villagers. October 2013 the Patna High Court acquitted all the accused for “lack of evidence”.

The 26 accused let off were earlier convicted by a lower court. Sixteen of them were awarded the capital punishment while the rest were given life imprisonment.

18. Abolish the death penalty in China

In China the death penalty is still being used to execute thousands and thousands of people yearly. It is estimated that China contribute to 60-80% of total death sentences and executions in the world.

Although these statistics are only estimated as the death penalty is a state secret and statistic are not produced, it is speculated that that this is because the actual death sentences may be very high than estimated and may cause embarrassment.

19. Lobsters and crabs have feelings, too

Have you ever been into a restaurant or stores that has live lobsters or crabs in tanks or in a tank and felt sickened and upset about the thought that these wonderful, interesting creatures will, at some point, be killed and eaten? You may have even contemplated the idea of buying one and then releasing him/her back into the sea.

However, although buying one or a few of these poor creatures may save the one/s that you pay for, you will be paying money to go to support more abuse and cruelty towards lobsters if you do this.

Lobsters, despite what you may think, are actually quite intelligent creatures. There is even one idea around that they may actually be able to escape traps.
Lobsters also have very advanced nervous systems. In fact, it has been said before that they will continue to feel pain until their nervous system has been destroyed.

The traditional way of killing a lobster, in many parts of the world, is to plunge them, alive, into boiling water. Even when they are killed quickly by electrocution, they still feel pain. They normally take just five seconds to die but, if as I have said above, lobsters have very advanced nervous systems, they could still be in quite a lot of pain for those five seconds that it takes to kill them in this way. Also, taking a life needlessly, no matter how humanely it is done, is still one more life lost tragically due to the brutality and selfishness of human beings. Violence is violence is violence.

Did you know that animal cruelty has been connected to violence against human beings? Many slaughterhouse workers have been to commit violent crimes against humans. Coincidence? I think not...

Please be compassionate towards all sentient beings, both male and female, human and non-human, big and small, living and undead, natural and supernatural, feathered, furry, scaled, hairy and/or otherwise skinned, vertebrate or invertebrate whether they live in rainforests, wetlands, forests, farms, countryside, cities, towns, villages, scrublands, tundra, savannahs, seas, oceans, rivers, lakes, ponds or mountains whenever you can. Please also be compassionate towards yourself whenever you can. Unnecessary violence must come to an end. Thank you.

20. Save the Mexican dogs

Several people have been attacked in Mexico, including a one-year-old child and a teenage girl, and stray dogs are being blamed for these attacks. However, there is not that much true evidence that the dogs actually are responsible.

They were tested for rabies, but the results were negative. They were also tested for traces of human DNA, but the results have not come back yet.
The dogs are all, apparently, very scared at the moment. Although it is likely that others of the same species may have been responsible for the attacks, it is unlikely that these dogs are the true killers.

However, some people still think that they were responsible and they are at risk of being put on death row. The killing of these animals is probably not necessary, so why should it be done, especially when there is so little evidence that they are responsible?

21. Stop Organ Harvesting in China

Tens of thousands of illegally imprisoned Falun Gong believers have been used as a living organ bank, killed on demand to fuel China’s lucrative organ transplant industry, as outlined in 'The Killing Rooms', a special coverage report by The Epoch Times.


22. Stop the killings of human rights advocates and community leaders

34 Mindanawons, including 26 Lumads, have been killed since June 2010 for their defense of the land, environment, and people’s livelihood. This includes pregnant women, human rights defenders, environment defenders, missionaries, priests...

More than 159 environment and human rights defenders have been slapped with legal harassment cases, vilification, and intimidation from the military.

An estimated 1,106 families with 6,066 individuals have been forcibly evacuated in the course of intense military operations carried out by the Philippine Army most notably in the Caraga, Northern Mindanao, and Southern Mindanao regions. There were also 30,000 Moro civilians who were displaced due to militarization.

23. Stop dog poisoning in Turkey

Street dogs are still being poisoned in Turkey. The dogs suffer a horrible dead. This kind of poison is even harmful for small children. This is injected in meat or even bones, it is odorless or taste less.

Every year before the season starts the government "cleans" the streets. That means that the animals are being killed before the tourist arrive. Every year hundred of animals are being killed. This has to stop!

24. Stop Killing Muslims in Burma

Killing of Burma Muslims starts from a town name Rohingya in May 2012 with the accusation of a Buddhist women rap which have not been verified. Since Journalist are not allowed and can not access the area.

So far almost 20000 Muslims been killed including Women and Children.

There are number of news agencies on the internet have shared the information.

25. Get off the net

This site offers people to watch all kinda of graphic videos of murder, rape, animal attacks and other videos kids, youth or anyone can watch.

It's a site that should not be able to be online and active!

26. Tell Tanzanians to STOP KILLING the poor who steal: Let the Law Take Action!

Tanzanian people: killing is a bigger crime than stealing!

As a result of the poverty in Tanzania some people have to steal to eat. Stealing is probably not a choice but a survival issue. The problem becomes bigger when a thief gets caught. He gets stoned to death, burned or any other unthinkable torture death!

This absurd outcome happens often in Tanzania. The Tanzanian citizens do this themselves. Tanzanians must stop killing by stoning/burning or any other horrible torture death. Occasionally innocent people have been taken for a thief and also killed the same way.

For anyone, including a tourist, who sees such a horrifying practice this is a traumatizing experience. Many Tanzanian children watch this regularly. How do these children feel in their surroundings after seeing one of these executions?

The laws do not allow people to kill and police always investigate and search for the people who committed the killing but they usually don't find the killers.

Please tell the Tanzanian government to punish the killers and to make sure this never happen again. The police surveillance and investigations must be taken more seriously than has been the case. Nobody should be allowed to kill another by stoning or any other means!


I tried to think of something that would make people change their mind. But I don't have any numbers or facts that will sweep you off your feet. I only have one thing and that is my dog Teo who was rescued from Pakrac killing station.

Every single day when I look into his innocent eyes I remember all of his friends who are out there in Pakrac killing station waiting to be executed because human society gave up on them. This made me feel obliged to change something.Who ever says that dogs don't have feelings,that they don't know what is happening to them or around them should spend one single day with Teo. He is amazing dog, full of love, compassion, such a gentle giant he is and he is so caring and loving and very much aware of his terrible past.

Sometimes at night when he sleeps on his blanket I watch him and I can see he is dreaming of something and then I wonder is he perhaps dreaming of all the bad people and bad things that happened in his past. He can't tell. But I feel an obligation to be his voice and to help his friends who stayed out there in Pakrac killing station waiting on execution.

So please lets be their voice, sign this petition and lets make a change in our society. Many thanks from Teo and me.

28. Stop Wal-Mart from Selling Live Fish

On April 14th, 2012, I bought 4 fish from Wal-Mart’s pet department in Sterling, VA ( store#2038). The sales associate indicated that those fish were suitable to live in a bowl and did not need a filtration system.

After taking the fish home, something didn't feel right and 14 hours later I took the fish to an aquatic specialist who told me that the fish should've never been sold in a bowl and are already displaying signs of sickness, their only hope for survival would be for Wal-Mart to put them back in their familiar environment and treat them. I went back to Wal-Mart, sick to my stomach with that information and asked to speak to the store manager. An associate came a few minutes later saying the store did not have a store manager at this point, they are going to hire a new manager in the coming days, however he was very sorry about what happened and would be glad to refund all of my money. I told him I wanted to make sure that the staff was trained appropriately and I would like to follow up and know what is going to happen to the fish since they needed medical treatment at this point. He told me "all fish that are returned at Wal-Mart, get destroyed", so there is nothing more he could do. Get this people; whenever you buy a live fish from Wal-Mart and return it for whatever reason, Wal-Mart kills the fish.

The multi-million dollar company doesn't want to invest to properly take care of these creatures and would dispose of every single fish being returned to them in the cruelest way possible just to cut costs. Needless to say, I refused the refund and took the fish back, after speaking to the aquatic specialist again, he told me I had 4 days to find a new habitat for the fish before they die, so I am currently looking for an organization, or an individual with a pond that would be willing to adopt these fish that would get murdered if returned at Wal-Mart. Given Wal-Mart’s business model and policy about these animals, they will never give proper care to the fish. This is a terrible act of animal cruelty, so please sign this petition to stop the suffering of thousands of fish at Wal-Mart.

Killing every fish that is returned to the store is a crime, it is inhumane and an utter disregard to the lives of these beautiful and helpless fish which are trusted to Wal-Mart's Care. No animal should ever be treated this way, allowed to suffer endlessly until its death!!!!

29. Tell Bulgaria: The indiscriminate slaughter of stray animals is genocide and fascism in its purest form

For decades all lost, abandoned and stray dogs and cats in Bulgaria have been subject to horrific abuse and mass extermination by the State and its institutions.

Barb wired death camps, called "isolators", especially designed for mass murder, have been operational all over the country, where millions of innocent, defenseless souls have perished in most despicable, cruel ways, tortured and killed by sadists and perverts, employed by the State. While the death machine pounding, the State propaganda has been engaged in "rationalization of murder" and disengagement of the moral standards of society by portraying such inhumane behavior toward sentient beings as socially acceptable and even desirable, by degrading and dehumanizing homeless animals, portraying them as vicious, dangerous beasts praying on humans. Moreover under such conditions of low moral standards and displaced responsibility, bloodthirsty morons, vigilantes and "concerned citizens", have been engaging systematically in animal "hunts" and various barbaric acts of animal torture and abuse, portrayed by the media as "solving the problem".

There was hope in 2007, when as a result of numerous petitions and complaints by Bulgarian citizens and NGOs regarding the serious welfare problems of stray animals, the European Intergroup on the Welfare and Conservation of Animals wrote to the Bulgarian authorities, reminding them that Bulgaria has ratified the European Council's Convention for the Protection of Pet Animals which makes it a binding obligation to take measures in this field. The Intergroup expressed hopes that the Bulgarian institutions would engage in the legislative process by voting and enacting effective measures to solve the problems of stray animals without recurring to a simple "catch and kill policy", which has proven to be completely ineffective and which is moreover unacceptable on moral and ethical grounds. As a consequence in 2008 the Animal Welfare Act was passed in Parliament, according to which TNR /trap, neuter and return/ programs were to be carried out for the humane solution of the stray animal overpopulation problem.

Sadly, in a country eaten by corruption, populism and greed, hatred prevailed. The Government, accustomed to solving all political, economic and social problems by murder, not only failed to enforce the Act but actively sabotaged it. The killings continued while the State institutions did all they could to destroy whatever evidence and records existed as to the numbers they knew they had murdered.

And it got worse. Irritated by the fact that not only the morality but the legality of their actions was constantly challenged by various animal welfare and animal rights organizations, the State decided to fight back. On the 4th of April 2012, the Minister of Agriculture - Miroslav Naydenov officially announced that following orders by the Prime minister - Bojko Borisov, he would start a legislative initiative to change back the Animal Welfare Act and Ordinance 41, and thus legalize again the indiscriminate, mass slaughter of stray dogs and cats. Moreover he promised he would make all necessary legal changes as to completely cut out the NGOs and animal rights activists from the decision making process and curtail their rights to inspect, challenge and control State institutions and their activities.

This is truly disgusting, unlawful and unacceptable in the 21st century in a country member of the EU, pretending to be civilized. This truly is genocide and fascism in its purest form.

30. Stop the Canadian government from slaughtering wolves!

In response to the fact that tar sands oil mining is threatening caribou herds by destroying their habitat in Alberta, the Canadian government headed by Stephen Harper has called for strychnine poisoning and aerial shooting of thousands of wolves in areas near tar sands mining.

The big bad wolf in this struggle is not the furry kind; it’s the kind that walks on two legs. The caribou’s habitat is being destroyed by mining.

The Alberta Tar Sands has created a massive loss of habitat for all wildlife in the region, but perhaps the most profoundly affected has been the caribou.

But instead of taking steps to protect the caribou’s habitat, Canada’s Minister of Environment Peter Kent said that thousands of Alberta wolves will need to be killed to rescue caribou impacted by tar sands development.

Killing the wolves means shooting them from helicopters and poisoning them with baits laced with strychnine. Strychnine is a deadly poison that causes a painful progression from muscle spasms to convulsions to suffocation over a period of hours. It is an excruciating death. The poisoned baits will also pose a threat for non-targeted animals like cougars and wolverines that may eat them.

The minister is taking a man-made environmental disaster and scapegoating wolves so as not to interfere with the profits of the oil industry. But without healthy habitat, the endangerment of caribou is unavoidable, no matter how many wolves are murdered. Caribou and wolves need habitat. Together, they create a natural balance in the ecosystem.

Canada’s first priority should be protection of the habitat, not additional assaults on the native wildlife.
