Action to Protect Wildlife Affected by Proposed Mexican Border Wall

“We build too many walls and not enough bridges.”
Isaac Newton

 

The following petition was in my email box this morning, a reminder that the Mexican wall is still on Trump’s bizarre  agenda.

Please sign the following petition to try and halt yet another of Trump’s misguided polices which will adversely affect wildlife, including endangered species, in addition of course to undermining the rights of indigenous communities and harming the environment:

Petition Sponsored by: Defenders of Wildlife

Oppose The Border Wall And Protect Wildlife!

“Funding the wall would destroy wildlife habitat.

President Trump’s crusade to build an impenetrable wall between the U.S. and Mexico could condemn wildlife already on the brink of extinction.

But Congress can put a stop to Trump’s fixation. Federal legislators have the power to deny funding for this disastrous roadblock to the survival of imperiled species. Funding the wall would destroy wildlife habitat and could be the end of the road for these species like endangered Mexican grey wolves, ocelots and jaguars.

We must act now! Demand that Congress refuse to fund the border wall. ”

Please read more and sign and share the petition:

The border wall is racially motivated, it is bad for people, animals and the environment.

Here are more actions to take to oppose this insane proposal

Petition

Stop Trump From Building the Wall

https://www.change.org/p/united-states-supreme-court-stop-trump-from-building-the-wall

Take a pledge to fight Trump’s Border wall

“More than 650 miles of barriers already exist along the border. These walls, fences and barriers cut through sensitive ecosystems, disrupt animal migration patterns, cause catastrophic flooding, and divide communities and tribal nations.

Now Donald Trump wants a wall across the entire 2,000-mile border. Trump’s wall would harm border communities, perpetuate human suffering, destroy thousands of acres of habitat and halt the cross-border migration of dozens of animal species. In fact, as revealed in the Center’s 2017 report A Wall in the Wild, 93 threatened, endangered and candidate species would potentially be affected by construction of a wall and related infrastructure spanning the entirety of the border.”

Take our pledge to fight Trump’s border wall today.

5 Ways To Protest The Border Wall Donald Trump So Desperately Wants To Build
https://www.bustle.com/p/5-ways-to-protest-the-border-wall-donald-trump-so-desperately-wants-to-build-33207

This comment included in the first petition raises a good point:”Wildlife & the environment is so much more important than immigrants coming into our country. We’re all descended from immigrants, unless you’re Native American.”

Trump seeks further funding

“President Donald Trump will boost by a half-billion dollars his funding request for his plan to build a border wall between the United States and Mexico, seeking at least $2.2 billion for the controversial project in fiscal year 2019, multiple GOP sources said.

The Trump administration requested $1.6 billion for the project earlier this year, but White House officials are going to increase that amount to at least $2.2 billion and possibly more, the congressional and administration officials said.”

The wall will eventually cost $25 billion to complete, a huge cost which could provide medical care, housing, education and other more worthy life enhancing projects.

Take Action to Help Older People Get The Care They Need.

“It was once said that the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the  children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy  and the handicapped.”
Hubert H. Humphrey

As a result of Tory austerity polices the most vulnerable in our society are suffering and continue to suffer.

Here is but one example:

In the 6th richest country in the world, the UK, more than 1.2 million older people in England currently can’t access the basic care they need to do everyday things, like get dressed and make themselves a meal. Things need to change for vulnerable people, things need to change for everyone.

Right now, the government is devising new plans for social care in England. We need to make sure that the needs of older people are addressed.

Please sign petition

Sign our petition for fair care:

Dear Jeremy Hunt

We believe that everyone should be supported to lead the lives they want for as long as they can.

That’s why we are calling for a care system that:

• Makes sure that everyone who needs care gets it.

• Gets rid of poor quality care.

• Values carers and care workers.

Read full petition and please sign and share:

https://campaigns.independentage.org/node/82/utm_source=email&utm_campaign=GP1&utm_term=b1#

Please sign even if like me you loathe and detest the Tories for the misery and suffering they have inflicted on vulnerable people such as children, the sick and disabled, low paid workers, the elderly and do not forget the NHS upon which the vast majority of us rely be we rich or poor and which they are systematically destroying with cuts to funding.

While it is good to sign petitions and work within the existing government to bring about change to the unfair policies of the Tories , we must in the end be rid of them if anything is to really change for the good of the majority of us.

Petitions are always well worth signing

Signing a petition sends them a message, lets them know that we do not approve of the grave injustice inflicted on our most vulnerable citizens.

“We need leadership in this country, which will improve the lives of working families, the children, the elderly, the sick     and the poor. We need leadership which brings our people together and makes us stronger.”
Bernie Sanders US senator

The above quote applies to the UK and anywhere else that fails to improve or even makes worse the lives of the majority of it’s citizens, particularly the most vulnerable such as those with disabilities, elderly people and children. It may shock you to know that one fifth of our citizens – 14 million people – live in poverty with the worst decline among children and the elderly. There are  1.9 million pensioners (16 percent) living in relative poverty according to these statistics:
https://www.ageuk.org.uk/globalassets/age-uk/documents/reports-and-publications/reports-and-briefings/money-matters/rb_aug17_briefing_poverty.pdf

Fifth of UK population now in poverty amid worst decline for children and pensioners in decades, major report reveals

“Britain’s record on tackling poverty has reached a turning point and is at risk of unravelling, following the first sustained rises in child and pensioner poverty for two decades, a major report has warned.

Nearly 400,000 more children and 300,000 more pensioners are now living in poverty than five years ago, during which time there have been continued increases in poverty across both age groups – prompting experts to warn that hard-fought progress towards tackling destitution is “in peril”. ”

This country is in a really sorry state, most people are suffering as a result of the misery inflicted by a bunch of over privileged bastards who have never known a day of poverty in their lives, who have never known what it is like to be hungry and cold shivering on the streets, no home, no hope no future. Never felt the anxiety of financial insecurity, never felt the anxiety for the future of their children, never had to work for all the hours god made to eke out a pittance now often not even enough to buy food or pay the rent. How many Tories have had to send their children to school hungry, how many go home to an unheated house, how many face retirement struggling on a pittance which barely pays the huge council tax , food, rent, repairs if you own your own home after paying an extortionate mortgage for the best part of your life! Most older people watch their home fall apart unable to afford the huge cost of repairs! Recently I had an estimate to fix a lock on a window – I can’t open the window without this – cost £ 145, more than a single pensioners entire income for a week. How about clothing or  a holiday – A Holiday!!!!!! how many elderly people get even a weeks holiday?  Not many. Things have to change we cannot allow our lives to be ruined by the greedy few, not only here in the UK but the world over.

We must rid this world of the vile cancer of greed and exploitation namely right wing ideology of social inequality. We must end the society of greed, the corrupt exploitative capitalist system that is destroying lives, destroying the very air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat. Our land, our oceans, our planet is dying as are the myriad species with whom we share it, killed by the voracious  greed of the few at the expense of the many.

Please sign and share this petition and every petition that sends a message that you have had enough of social injustice which treats our citizens so shamefully, enough of inequality, of environmental damage to our world, of the exploitation of human and nonhuman animals.

Land Ownership – Who Owns Your Home?

The following blog post I completed a couple of years ago, it has been updated but most of the information with some minor corrections is still applicable. Apologies for odd formatting, try as I might I can’t correct it.

In this environment of increasing inequality when the social divide between the haves and the have-nots increases alarmingly you may find the following quite eye opening.

Here are some interesting facts about land ownership in the UK. Facts which may well surprise you concerning land distribution.

Land ownership facts:
* The UK has 60 million acres of land in total.
* 70% of the land is owned by 1% of the population.
* Just 6,000 or so landowners — mostly aristocrats, but also large institutions and the Crown — own about 40 million acres, two thirds of the UK.
* Britain’s top 20 landowning families have bought or inherited an area big enough to swallow up the entire counties of Kent, Essex and Bedfordshire, with more to spare.
* Big landowners measure their holdings by the square mile; the average Briton living in a privately owned property has to exist on 340 square yards.
* Each home pays £550/ann. on average in council tax while each landowning home receives £12,169/ann. in subsidies. The poor subsidising the super rich. In Ireland where land redistribution occurred, there is no council tax.

* A building plot, the land, now constitutes between half to two- thirds of the cost of a new house.

Source of information:
How Land Affects The Average Person:

http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/watercity/LandArticle.html  I have included this link as it is the source of the statistics above, however I am not entirely in agreement with all of ideas expressed therein, particularly concerning the use of green belt land for house building.

Please note: These are old statistics above concerning council tax which is now around £1000 plus annually for band A, – prices vary according to each council.

According to the following article some of the most affluent areas pay less council tax than people living in poorer areas.

“Multimillion-pound homes across London areas, including Belgravia, Pimlico and Fulham, attract among the lowest council tax rates in the country, as our ranking of locations by price shows. Westminster is the cheapest local authority, having levied low rates since the Eighties, and charges £678 a year for a “Band D””
Council tax: how does your bill compare?:
More information about land ownership
“Just 0.3% of the population – 160,000 families – own two thirds of the country. Less than 1% of the population owns 70% of the land, running Britain a close second to Brazil for the title of the country with the most unequal land distribution on Earth.”
This is a very interesting article and told me things I did not know for example,  as a result of  historical events, the Queen owns all the land in the entire UK:
William’s 22nd great-granddaughter, who today sits on the throne, is still the legal owner of the whole of England. Even your house, if you’ve been able to afford one, is technically hers. You’re a tenant, and the price of your tenancy is your loyalty to the crown.
I didn’t know that and I doubt if many other people do.

Time for change towards a more modern society, time to ditch this unfair nonsense initiated in times past. Not only is it idiotic it is a social injustice that has no place in a modern society. The UK is a socially regressive country beyond our imagination. I once thought that this was among the most fair and free countries in the world, at least within the framework of the times in which we live or should I say lived. Rather than progressing towards a fairer distribution of wealth we are regressing backwards. People think that socialism or communism is not desirable because they will own nothing. Well we own nothing now!  You are just a tenet!  You own nothing with the exception of your personal property unless you are in debt of course than you own nothing! While the monarch’s ownership of our property may seem a technically it exists nonetheless.

#SACKTHETORIES – BUDGET DAY PROTEST

http://www.thepeoplesassembly.org.uk/budget_toriesout

The Tories have been accused of “economic murder” and rightly so as their relentless austerity policies have resulted in the deaths of 120,000 people.

120000 DEATHS LINKED TO AUSTERITY

The Conservatives have been accused of “economic murder” for austerity policies which a new study suggests have caused 120,000 deaths.

The Tories’ destruction of our welfare system is unrelenting.With every passing day more and more shocking facts come to light as vulnerable and poor people are plunged ever deeper into poverty and despair.

Here are some of the latest

A cheap stunt by the government over Universal Credit will lead to thousands of children a year being worse off

“The government has made a significant change to the controversial roll out of Universal Credit. It’s launched a consultation on proposed changes to a policy affecting over one million children. It says more children will be helped by the plans.

But dig a little deeper into the details and it actually seems like a cheap stunt. Because the proposals could eventually lead to around 16,000 of the most deprived children being worse off every year.”

No Money for Christmas for 60,000 households with 40,000 children

Landlords have already sent out notifications anticipating that their tenets will not be able to pay rent as a result of delays to Universal Credit (UC).

Note the following:

Food bank use has increased 30% in areas where UC has been rolled out

3 million families are losing an average of 2,000 a year as a result of UC

Action on poverty says that more than a million children will be in poverty due to cuts as a result of universal credit.

Does this insensitive robotic woman have no feelings. The number of people being evicted has gone down so she says in the above video, by a whole third, so that makes it all right then despite the fact that two thirds, hundreds of people, continue to be evicted as a result of universal credit. You’re just a number to them, this woman and others of her ilk have no feelings, no compassion no concern for you as an individual.  It has been announced that over Christmas people who are changing to universal credit will get no money until after the christmas period. How the hell are they supposed to survive for six weeks with no income. Hard at anytime but more devastating this time of year.

Please sign the following petition:

A small admin oversight by the government will mean thousands of people will be left penniless this Christmas, without enough to pay their rent or buy food – let alone celebrate Christmas.

Please read more and sign the petition:

Please make an exception to Universal Credit rules this Christmas

What is happening to poor and disabled people here in the UK is disgusting

The government will not even  investigate whether people claiming Universal Credit are forced to use food banks

Separately, the Peabody Trust housing association, one of the UK’s biggest social landlords, has calculated the delays will put about 23,000 families – with 41,000 children – at risk of destitution in the run-up to Christmas.

The problems are likely to escalate with the extension of Universal Credit. Even by the end of January, only 10 per cent of benefits claimants will be receiving it.

Here is the reality of UC

Below is a chart showing the impact of UC

The government claim that people struggling without money can claim advance payments. Don’t be fooled. Here is the reality of so called advanced payments:

How the hell can anyone live on £22 a week. Moreover this money has to be paid back!

Here is more of the grim reality of Tory Britain as diseases of the Victorian era return to Salford: rickets and beriberi – thought to be long eradicated – are on the rise due to food poverty according to a shocking new report

Never forget if you vote Tory you are complicit ! Your actions in the ballot box have set the clock back to a time and circumstances that we had hoped had been consigned to history long ago. Your vote is destroying the lives of children and disabled and sick people. Think of that when you sit down to your Christmas dinner, in your warm home and watch your children pay with their new toys. Thanks to your vote Christmas for many people will be like something out of Dickens!

To make matters worse the Tories could care less and even laugh about the suffering caused by UC.

Comment on the Guardian article above which basically sums up the situation.

“One way to judge a society is by our children .If that is the case this cruel tory goverment has proved to be an abject failure .There is a massive divide between the rich and the poor.This has to be a deliberate policy. This goverment has chosen to give more to the very rich at the cost of the poor .There policies are designed to be cruel to those struggling to get by .This Tory goverment are well aware of the plight of the poor .By there actions have proved they don’t care.

Food banks are mistake this goverment has allowed .these statements on our society are just the tip of the ice berg .Our public services a vital life line for us all are collapsing.worse child poverty is rife in our country in 2017 .employment deregulation is seen as outrageous .When the ultra rich benefit from tax breaks ,and then to add insult to injury use tax havens to avoid there responsibility to society we all live in .The duty of any goverment is to ensure its citizens are treated fairly .Its obvious this goverment has failed.”

If you can, please attend your nearest protest tomorrow.

Also please write to your MP express in the strongest terms, though politely, your outrage concerning the continuous onslaught of misery and suffering caused by Universal Credit and other benefit cuts and changes on vulnerable members of our society including children, people with disabilities and the elderly.

Disgusting Callous Tories Set to Massacre 33,000 Badgers

What gives the vile disgusting Tories the right to massacre 33,000 defenceless badgers who have as much right to exist as any other creature. A total of eleven new licenses have been issued.

The majority of people oppose the massacre of badgers but yet again the Tories do what the hell they like regardless of democracy,
ethics -sadly an alien concept to the Tories – or plain and simple common decency.

Huge increase in badger culling will see up to 33,500 animals shot

Up to 33,500 badgers will be shot this autumn in an attempt to control tuberculosis in cattle, a huge rise from the 10,000 killed in 2016.

The government has announced that 11 new badger cull areas have been licensed, adding to the 10 already in place. Devon now has six badger culls under way, with Somerset and Wiltshire having three each, with others in Cheshire, Cornwall, Dorset, Gloucestershire and Herefordshire.

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/sep/11/huge-increase-badger-culling-see-up-to-33500-animals-shot

As usual it’s all about money, they don’t give a damn about the cows. It is simply killing one animal, badgers, so that there are more of another animal, cows, to kill to satisfy the palates of meat eaters in order for them to eat a food that is not natural and eaten simply for pleasure, while making a profit of course. That’s what it is all about these days profit profit bloody profit at the expense of most people, other animals and the environment.

Take Action

I waited a couple of days before posting but so far there are no current petitions, at least none that I can find, relating directly to this new round of killings, if anyone knows of a petition please leave a link in the comments.

“In 2013 the British Government started its current and unrelenting campaign of badger culling to counteract the devastation and spread of bovine TB in cattle. In response to the mass opposition by over 300,000 members of the public, badger groups, and wildlife campaigners DEFRA appointed an Independent Expert Panel to assess the effectiveness of the culls; the IEP assessed the culls as ‘ineffective and inhumane’.”

The government has just admitted the badger cull isn’t working. But it’s going to kill another 30,000 of them anyway.

On Monday 11 September, the government released a report [pdf] showing that the so-called ‘Badger Cull’ hasn’t actually worked. But at exactly the same time, it also announced a sharp increase in the cull; which could mean up to [pdf p13-14] another 33,841 being killed (more than a 200% increase on 2016).

Charlottesville: Ways To Help

Racist organisations like the KKK, neo-nazis and white supremacists should be banned. Racism or any discrimination, hate speech and violence have no place in any civilised society. No one should have the freedom to incite hatred and promote inequality. It’s not freedom of speech, it’s a crime. No society should tolerate, racism or any kind of hate fueled rhetoric, bigotry and intolerance.

Enough Is Enough: White Nationalism Should Not Be a Protected Form of Free Speech

“Groups like the Ku Klux Klan and Unite The Right are not mere political groups. They are hate groups who have, for a century — or, in the KKK’s case, much longer — openly advocated violence and terror as a means of achieving their agendas. These individuals maintain views that quite literally align with the Nazis who tried to conquer Europe, with a key goal being the extermination and enslavement of “inferior” races, like Jews and Slavs.”

Why the hell can’t we all learn to live together regardless of race, creed, gender or any other perceived difference. There is so much misery in the world, I cannot understand why people such as these vile excuse for human beings have to create more. Wouldn’t the world be a better place if equality, tolerance and acceptance of each person was common place. Human beings should have no enemies other than death and disease, certainly not each other. Yet racism and other intolerance thrives and is on the increase along with the insatiable greed of the few at the expense of the many. We should unite for a better world where inequality, intolerance, social injustice, racism and any other prejudices are a thing of the past, a world where we can live out our lives in peace promoting the common good of all, including the other species with whom we share this world, and put all our energies in preserving this planet for all, including future generations.

It’s Up to Us to Stop White Supremacist Rallies Throughout America

“…mobilize your communities to get white supremacists out, because community resistance works.

Organizers successfully shut down a rally in Colorado Springs, another at Texas A&M, and one in Richmond to protest the removal of Confederate monuments. The “peaceful” March on Google, organized by white supremacists in nine different cities, following the firing of James Damore has also been canceled!

Please read the following, which over the weekend was Care2’s Daily Action and features a Human Rights Campaign video, and share widely, the world needs to know these are not “fine people” but racist fascist thugs who must not become an accepted part of American society.

Donald Trump: These Are Not “Fine People”

“Last weekend the world watched in horror as white supremacists, neo-nazis, and KKK members marched with torches and violently clashed with anti-fascist protestors in Virginia.

Instead of condemning hate, President Trump has blamed “both sides” for violence, and criticized the media’s coverage of the violent event, even going as far to say there were “very fine people” at the rally.

Video shows that this isn’t the case. White supremacists shouted racial and homophobic chants and insults to protestors, and one woman was killed when a White supremacist purposefully drove his car through a group of peaceful demonstrators.

There is only one side spewing hate. Watch the Human Rights Campaign video and share with your networks.

Frankly RACISTS DISGUST ME, don’t they think that there is enough hatred, violence and misery in the world without people like them creating more.
It is important to note that there are many people who oppose racism.
Tens of thousands of anti-racism protesters have opposed the “Free Speech” rally in Boston that featured right-wing speakers.

Tories Out: Protest the Tory Conference

The world is now ever more turbulent and it is increasingly more difficult to know where to begin to protest the onslaught as equality, social justice, decency, compassion fight against a seething mass of bigotry, social injustice, racism, right wing subjugation of the poor, increased abuse of animals, war … well the list is just so long. The headlines, as biased to the right as they are here in the UK, mostly seem more interested in Sport, the new opiate of the people,  than much else. Seemingly sport is more important  than the misery mostly inflicted by the right wing and those of right wing mentality – the other night a sports segment on the BBC came before any mention of the fiasco in North Korea where two psychopaths who hold so much power rattle their sabres with the resulting possibility of  leading us to the brink of nuclear war.

Undercover of all this the Tories continue their agenda with increasingly more austerity as if the disaster of Grenville Tower, the result of austerity, greed and neglect had never happened.

Right wing political ideology, particularly in its extremes as is the case today, will never bring about social justice, a fair world and a just society, it therefore must be eliminated permanently.

The world it seems is becoming more right wing, more fascist, racist and intolerant and the struggle to procure a decent existence for us all more of a challenge. I am shocked by the displays of open racism in the USA, the violence, hate, bigotry and intolerance.   What an appalling display of hate in Charlottesville as an ugly crowd of vile racist thugs, emboldened by the bigoted rhetoric of Trump’s extreme right wing agenda, wreaked mayhem. Such has no place in the modern world, it is sickening to every decent person.

We need to bring about change in the world urgently including here in the UK. We need to stop the spread of the right wing chaos that is making the lives of millions a living nightmare.

We have to keep speaking out against the rise in right wing agendas which are changing our world, taking it back to a time we once thought had passed into history.

Here the Tories systematic destruction of our social progress seems to go unnoticed lately.

List of Tory policies we need to get rid of along with the Tories

Austerity which transferred wealth from the majority, including the poorest made increasingly more poor, to the already fabulously wealthy.

The more severe cuts were to families with children

As always, poor and vulnerable women bear the brunt of austerity
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/mar/16/women-austerity-poor-vulnerable-gender-inequality

The severest cuts are to already poor families with children
https://www.commonspace.scot/articles/10447/ifs-report-almost-1-3-children-be-poverty-2022-due-uk-austerity-push

Which resulted in:

Massive increase in child poverty by 400,000 since 2010 and still rising WITH WORSE YET TO COME

David Cameron’s legacy is soaring child poverty – with worse to come:
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/aug/10/child-poverty-david-cameron-austerity

And an increase in the use of food banks which continue to rise to name just some of the more serious consequences of austerity for the many for the advantage of the few.

Cuts to the NHS
“Between 2010 and 2015 the Tories slashed £20 billion off the NHS budget. Their current spending plans involve a further £22 billion in funding cuts between 2015 and 2020.”

Cuts to benefits and services to disabled people so extreme that it has brought condemnation from the united nations

The systematic Tory abuse of disabled people
http://anotherangryvoice.blogspot.co.uk/2017/04/the-systematic-tory-abuse-of-disabled.html

Cuts to fire and police services Tories have reduced police jobs by 34,000 with the result of an astonishing rise in the crime rate with more cuts on the way. A similar situation exist concerning fire fighters with 10,000 job cuts , again with more cuts planned by 2020.

Cuts to education Continued cuts to education are planned.

The education system is broken says one teacher:

I’ve been a teacher for five years, but cuts are making me say goodbye to education:

Education cuts forced back in Hackney

Also keep in mind the huge increase in student tuition fees of £9.000, 2/3 of students will never be able to repay their debts

Well the list is long.

The above are highlights of the damaging Tory policies which affect the vast majority of us and which are the more familiar.

Here is a detailed list of thirty damaging Tory policies which includes some of the above links and from which much of the information above was scoured.

30 things you should know about the Tory record

For a thorough run down of the detrimental policies of the Tory government the above article and its links are highly recommended

We must do all we can short of violence to rid ourselves of this blight to humanity (namely RIGHT WING POLITICS) the other species with whom we share this world and the plant itself if we are to ever have a decent existence which values the right to life, and a good quality of life, for every being that exists. Ousting the Tories and replacing with a real socialist Jeremy Corbyn is a good way to start.
