  • REDUCE THE TRUCK CAUSED AIR POLLUTION IN EUROPE
    A huge amount of in- and exports across the countries are done by trucks. These trucks cause air pollution, noise and worsen street conditions. Nowadays everyday products are ordered on the internet from all over the world and far distances of transportation is not a big deal anymore . An investment in better infrastructure can ensure cleaner air, and renew and expend the rail links. When more people will go by train rail ticket are easier to afford and it will decrease the need of a car. Unfortunately the costly car is still a must for more rural areas. I am a passionate biker and hate to suffocate on the exhaust fumes of vast trucks.

  • SOUTH AFRICA: Keep Fracking Out of the Drakensberg & Karoo
    The Drakensberg is the source of water on which over 5 million people, in cities like Estcourt, Howick, Pietermaritzburg & Durban, depend on for their water supply. If Fracking is permitted all life in our province stands to be jeopardised. Each fracking well uses between 6 and 25 million litres of water and up to 150 000kgs of sand to create cracks in the rocks and release the gas. Farming in the Drakensberg & Karoo will also be destroyed if the water is polluted, affecting our food supply and raising food prices considerably. We are a water scarce country which has abundant sunlight - surely we should capture this source of energy rather than destroy our water supply? Technical Cooperation Permits have been issued to Rhino Oil and Gas and Sungu Sungu to explore the possibilities of extracting shale gas in Balgowan, Kamberg, Karkloof and surrounding areas.

  • CAMEROON: Stop Overgrazing in Mbengwi
    This would improve on the food situation as water catchments which are drying up will come back supplying the much needed water for agriculture. Food security would be guaranteed and social conflicts which are on the rise in Mbengwi, North West Cameroon would be checked.

  • Stop releasing balloons in memory of....
    Releasing balloons is harmful to wildlife and marine life.. Balloon cause birds and other marine life to starve to death because they swallow the balloons and can not eat. The strings get tangled branches and catch birds and they can't get out and starve or are hurt.

  • [WON] Say NO to Release of GMO Vaccine in South Africa
    Intervet (Pty.) Ltd would like to introduce the vaccine, Innovax®- ND, to South Africa under the Genetically Modified Organisms Act (GMO’s) of 1997, Innovax®- ND is a frozen, cell associated, live virus vaccine that contains the recombinant serotype 3 Herpes Virus of Turkeys (HVT) with the Fusion gene of Newcastle Disease Virus (NDV-F). The HVT/NDV-F strain contains the Fusion (F) gene from NDV. It is approved for in ovo administration for 18-day embryos and by subcutaneous vaccination for healthy 1-day-old chickens. There have already been significant warnings about the use of genetically modified virus and vaccines. A research paper published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health in 2006 stated: "Genetically modified (GM) viruses and genetically engineered virus-vector vaccines possess significant unpredictability and a number of inherent harmful potential hazards... Horizontal transfer of genes... is well established. New hybrid virus progenies resulting from genetic recombination between genetically engineered vaccine viruses and their naturally occurring relatives may possess totally unpredictable characteristics with regard to host preferences and disease-causing potentials. ...There is inadequate knowledge to define either the probability of unintended events or the consequences of genetic modifications." Genetic Modifications While scientific progress on molecular biology has a great potential to increase our understanding of nature and provide new medical tools, it should not be used as justification to turn the environment into a giant genetic experiment by commercial interests. The biodiversity and environmental integrity of the world's food supply is too important to our survival to be put at risk. Intervet (Pty.) Ltd Furthermore Intervet (Pty.) Ltd is nothing more about then a front organisation for the international research and development, production and marketing company MSD Animal Health. Who are also known to use dogs, cats and other animals in experiments at MSD Animal Health.

  • Niger Delta Oil And Gas Pollution
    I am a Niger Deltan and a Citizen of the United States currently living in the US. When I left Nigeria in 2018, The situation was very bad. We woke up with black soothe in our beds, our bodies, cars and furniture. After showers, the bathtub got black and sticky. Even my cat would leave my palm black when I pet him. My Mom would cough and cough and spit out all colours of mucus. The sky is grey just like what goes on in China. The NIGER DELTA is no doubt one of the most polluted places on earth. I called my Mom this morning (08/04/2021), And she says it has only gotten worse, 100 times worse and Is considering leaving the country now. But what of my aunties, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and neighbours who can not leave? People from various parts of the country now migrate to the Niger Delta to partake in the illegal processing of raw crude stolen from pipelines(Bunkry) and is considering leaving the country. I have first-hand witnessed this destruction as I worked in the oil and gas industry before leaving the country. The standards of even the authorized oil drilling companies are poor and sub humane. Very environmentally unfriendly to say the least. I am sure you know this already given your position. I know well enough that I am a grain of sand on the beach but it aches my heart to see our beach like this and I can’t sit still. It just takes a little, love and humanity to care.

  • Make Trophy Hunting on Wild Animals in Tanzania Illegal
    Trophy hunting is unethical, cruel, harmful and unsustainable. Killing rare animals such as lions, elephants and other wild animals for trophies is not responsible hunting. Elephants and lions are already endangered, so it's dangerous for our ecological balance which means killing them is dangerous for the whole plant earth as it weakens the ecological balance. Without regulations forbidding and punishing trophy hunting, cruel unethical hunters will keep torturing these animals and destroying the plant earth and they are seriously proud of it as they think being rich makes them stand above the law. Examples are hunting safari companies which are owned by people who kill baby elephants and then are proud of having murdered an innocent elephant.
