US Government Promises To Retire All Research Chimpanzees


The National Institutes of Health says it is sending all of its chimpanzees designated for government research to sanctuaries, effectively ending federal biomedical research on the species.

The federal government's experimentation on primates has been surrounded by controversy for years.

After the release of a study in 2011 that looked into the effectiveness of biomedical research on chimps, the agency promised to retire all ....

ΤΑ ΠΑΙΔΙΑ ΕΝΟΣ ΚΑΤΩΤΕΡΟΥ ΘΕΟΥ - Το Κίνημα Δεν Πληρώνω με τους πρόσφυγες στην πλατεία Βικτωρίας

ΤΑ ΠΑΙΔΙΑ ΕΝΟΣ ΚΑΤΩΤΕΡΟΥ ΘΕΟΥ

Επισκεφτήκαμε τους ταλαιπωρημένους πρόσφυγες στην πλατεία Βικτωρίας. 


Οι ιμπεριαλιστικές επεμβάσεις και η παγκόσμια οικονομική κρίση έφερε τα παιδιά ενός κατώτερου θεού από την άλλη άκρη της γης, στο κέντρο της, σπαραγμένης από την κρίση, Αθήνας. 

Η βροχή είχε σταματήσει και ο ήλιος έκανε δειλά δειλά την εμφάνισή του.  


Άπλωναν τις βρεγμένες κουβέρτες να στεγνώσουν όπου έβρισκαν.


Τα ρούχα μπόγοι, πεταμένα, η βροχή τα είχε παρασύρει,  παπούτσια εδώ και κει… 
Κάποιοι απ’ αυτούς με γάντια στα χέρια μάζευαν τα σκουπίδια σε σακούλες… 
Μιλάμε με κάποιον απ’ αυτούς, ζητάμε κάποιον να μιλάει αγγλικά, my friend μας λέει, ψάχνει, φέρνει ένα πιτσιρίκι γύρω στα 14. 

Η Αργυρώ τον ρωτάει από πού είναι. Αφγανοί μας λέει, πολλοί είναι από την Μαντζουρία. 


Τον ρωτάμε ποιος είναι υπεύθυνος να πάρει αυτά που φέραμε, δεν υπάρχει υπεύθυνος, μόνοι τους τα μοιράζουν. 
Του τα δίνουμε και τον κοιτάμε να χάνεται μέσα στην πλατεία…

Financial Times: A fox inside the Greek henhouse

FINANCIAL TIMES


A fox inside the Greek henhouse, by Tony Barber

Alexis Tsipras, Greece’s re-elected prime minister, is finding the first few days back in government anything but plain sailing. On Thursday this blog reported how Mr Tsipras had demanded the resignation of a deputy transport minister barely 24 hours after having appointed him. The minister, Dimitris Kammenos, was from the rightwing nationalist Independent Greeks party, the junior coalition partner to Mr Tsipras’s leftwing Syriza party. Embarrassingly, his social media accounts contained anti-Semitic content.

Now some curious details are emerging about another deputy minister, this time from inside Syriza itself.


They concern Alexis Haritsis, who, as a deputy finance minister, has been given the responsibility of ensuring that Greece makes the most efficient use possible of the billions of euros that the nation receives each year in EU structural aid funds (money that is separate from bailout funds).


Greek social media are bubbling with stories that Haritsis once belonged to, or supported, an anti-austerity, civil disobedience movement that sprang up in late 2010. Activists in the movement, called Den Plirono (“I won’t pay”), refused to pay higher public transport fares and motorway tolls imposed in the early phase of Greece’s first, €110bn EU-International Monetary Fund bailout, agreed in May 2010.





These days, Den Plirono helps Greeks who find it hard to pay their electricity bills, distributes food to the poor and runs a medical clinic.




It is an intriguing thought – a minister said to have advocated public resistance to revenue-raising measures is now in charge of disbursing EU aid.


Perhaps the really interesting point is that Mr Tsipras has actually promoted Mr Haritsis. In the first Syriza government, which was in power from January to August, Mr Haritsis was secretary-general in the finance ministry – also with responsibility for handling EU aid funds.



Mr Haritsis has not denied involvement with Den Plirono.



The movement’s founder, Vassilis Papadopoulos, says the new minister was not a registered member but might have taken part in its activities. He adds that he would, in any case, not want Mr Haritsis as a member these days, ...

Human rights for cats and dogs: Spanish town council votes overwhelmingly in favour of defining pets as 'non-human residents'

If the Magna Carta marked the birth of human rights, today we may have reached its apotheosis. In Spain, or at least in one Spanish town, politicians have just voted overwhelmingly in favour of creating what are effectively human rights for dogs and cats.

The town council in Trigueros del Valle, a municipality of about 330 people in the Castile and León region, ....

The Greek people protest against the Parliament’s vote on eurozone agreement - Violent police repression

Members of the Greek Parliament, led by the Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, convened in Athens, July 15, to debate and vote on the agreement proposed by the Eurozone leaders’ Monday morning following over 16 hours long lasting negotiations in Brussels. The agreement, if backed by the Greek Parliament, will give a way to a fresh pack of austerity measures and economic reforms in exchange for a third bailout and Greece’s place in the Eurozone.

Protesters gathered on the streets of Athens to state their disagreement on the new era of austerity measures. I Don't Pay Movement dynamically protested a big NO to slavery, which is approaching through new austerity measures .  
A large part of central Athens was closed to traffic and pedestrians as police mounted a huge security operation to allow politicians access to parliament by car. At a rally of more than 20,000 in Syntagma Square, police responded with teargas to push the protesters away from barricades erected to protect the parliament building. 

Around 5,000 officers, including hundreds of riot and motorcycle police, used parked buses and crowd barriers to prevent protesters from encircling the building.
Police guarded the parliamentary vote on austerity cuts needed for IMF and EU bailout.



We will not be slaves !

Why I'm An Animal Rights Activist When There Is So Much Human Suffering In The World



Rescued mom and babies at Poplar Spring Sanctuary, Poolesville, MD. photo by Deb Durant. Photo by Deb Durant



Before I was an animal rights activist, I was a budding human rights activist. While in law school, I helped victims of domestic violence obtain personal protection orders. 

I studied human rights and refugee law, participated in an asylum clinic, spent all my summer legal internships working with refugee organizations and focused primarily on helping women who were victims of gender-based persecution and violence such as honor crimes, forced genital mutilation, sex-trafficking, and rape.


My first client let me touch the shrapnel that was embedded under the skin in her knee after the Taliban had bombed her village in Afghanistan and killed most of her family. I also represented men when they were in need, like the gentle Congolese man who had been tortured, and had the marks on his body to prove it, because of dubious ties to the wrong political party.
Refugees and victims of gender based violence are an incredibly vulnerable and deserving group of humans. Many of them have no family, no country. Many live their lives in fear. Without the help of international aid groups and non-governmental organizations, they are at constant risk of exploitation, abuse, persecution, homelessness, and death. And yet, I have chosen to dedicate myself and my life to the animals. 




I'm sure every animal activist has been challenged on this point:

Pro NO march to this Sunday's referendum

The government SYRIZA - ANEL, squashed by the globalised capitalist crisis, is now trying to 'throw the ball' to the Greek people, by calling a referendum.

The " I Don't Pay Movement " was born by a critical mass of everyday working people. On this basis we are now inviting all citizens of this country, to say a big NO to the international exploiters.

But the real question is what social class withholds the country's wealth and the means of production.  If we are still governed by a handful of bankers, constructors, media owners, shipowners, industrialists and corrupted politicians, the people will still lead to poverty, misery and ultimatelly, to suicide.
We do not rely on any referendums that they will get Greece out of the crisis but, first and foremost, we count on our collective struggles at all levels!

The people should say NO, whilst fighting simultaneously for:
  • clearing the public and private debt
  • free access of all citizens to all public social goods, such as electricity, water, health, education, roads, beaches, etc.
  • the nationalisation of the banks under the control of workers
  • the exemplary punishment of those who led the country to this situation and speculated on the bones of the people.

We call on the people to continue the struggle in coordinated and more intense ways for radical social changes. This is the only way to conquer all those we are entitled to.




















Photos below are from Thursday's march with tens of thousands people in Central Athens,
shouting to a big NO, not only regarding the referendum, but to all kind of people's exploiters.
