A Victory for Our Side: Air France Cancels Shipment of Monkeys from Mauritius!!!

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Within 24 hours of learning that Air France was scheduled to transport monkeys from Mauritius into O’Hare International Airport on Thursday, activists from across the globe have successfully shut down this shipment!!!

According to PeTA:

Within 24 hours, you and others like you managed to generate 68,000 e-mails, thousands of Facebook posts and tweets, and hundreds of calls. Thanks to your fast work and dedication, we are thrilled to confirm that Air France has cancelled plans to deliver these monkeys into the hands of experimenters!

This fantastic show of support proves once again that strength in numbers and coordinated actions can have a huge effect on companies. This victory couldn’t have been possible without your help. From all of us at PETA, a huge “Thank you!” to everyone who helped stop this transport! We are now urging Air France to create a formal policy to prohibit future shipments of primates to labs.

Walter Bond has arrived at federal prison in Marion

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

jeffrey & walter

On Monday, January 30, 2012, Walter Bond was transferred from FTC Oklahoma City to USP Marion.

It is expected that mail that was sent to Oklahoma City will be forwarded to him at Marion.

Walter’s new mailing address:

Walter Bond
37096-013
USP Marion
PO Box 1000
Marion IL 62959

Phone: (618) 964-1441

I could not locate the specific mail regulations online. All mail is opened and read. Letters and cards are allowed. The card or envelope cannot contain any glitter or stickers. I believe printouts only from the internet are allowed, but there is probably a limit to the number of pages being sent. There is a size limit to photos, but I could not locate it. No polaroids allowed. Books ordered through the publisher or book retailer like Amazon.com are allowed. Only 5 books per order is allowed. Prisoners are only allowed to possess a certain number of books. An Amazon wish list will be posted on SupportWalter shortly. Write your address in the body of the letter you send, as all previous correspondence and everything that Walter had with him at jail has been destroyed by the facility, and he may not receive the envelope. Mail with no return address will not be given to Walter.

If you want to visit Walter, please write to him, as I believe he has to make a formal request.

Iowa Lawmakers to Consider ‘Ag Gag’ Legislation, Again

Monday, January 30th, 2012

Source: Wisconsin Ag Connection

A bill that would impose the nation’s toughest legislation restricting undercover operations by animal rights activists will return in the Senate as part of a procedural motion. House File 589, known as the “ag gag bill,” which would make it illegal to videotape at farms or other animal operations while undercover. Farmers say the legislation is needed to protect the state’s agricultural economy against activists who deliberately cast their operations in a negative light and continue videotaping rather than reporting abuse immediately.

According to the Des Moines Register, animal welfare officials say undercover recording is vital to protect livestock and food safety and that they must document multiple instances of abuse to show a pattern.

The House passed the bill last year but it stalled in the Senate after the Iowa attorney general’s office said the bill would most likely face constitutional challenges because of provisions that would have made it illegal to possess or distribute audio or video recordings. The U.S. Supreme Court has previously ruled that films exposing animal cruelty represent the exercise of free speech.

The Senate late in last year’s session introduced a sweeping rewrite that scrapped an effort to establish new offenses of fraud to prohibit animal advocates from obtaining access to livestock facilities by false pretenses. Instead, the Senate rewrite legislation beefs up language regarding trespassing, making it a crime to enter or remain at an agricultural operation or to have a recording device at such operations without express permission.

Critics contended last year that current trespassing law already makes such activities a crime and that the Senate version also poses constitutional problems because it would require anyone who makes undercover recordings while trespassing to turn over the recordings to authorities.

The Senate will call the bill up for debate today as a procedural motion to address multiple amendments on the bill, said Eric Bakker, a Senate Democratic staff member. A debate to pass the bill is not today, he said. The Senate is currently recessed until 4:15 p.m.

The bill, if passed by the Senate with amendments, must ultimately return to the House for further consideration because of the changes made, the Des Moines Register reports.

Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement’s Action Fund called the bill unconstitutional and a waste of time.

Contact Air France & Troy Transport ASAP: Let’s Stop a Shipment of monkeys to SNBL on Thursday

Monday, January 30th, 2012

Air France is scheduled to fly a shipment of monkeys kidnapped in Mauritius into O’Hare Intl on Thursday, February 2. Please contact them at info provided in article. Troy Transport is the trucking company that will then be moving the monkeys from Chicago to a quarantine in TX where they will be tortured at the notorious SNBL Concentration Camp.

Troy Transport needs to understand that complicity is not a wise idea: 1 (281) 288-0040.

The owner is Troy Boudreaux: 1 (713) 501-0916.

PETA has just learned that Air France plans to transport 60 monkeys this Wednesday (February 1) from Africa to the U.S. for use in cruel and deadly experiments at the notorious Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories (SNBL), where PETA recently conducted an investigation that unveiled shocking cruelty.

We need your help to urge the airline to cancel this shipment!

If Air France moves ahead with its plans, the monkeys, supplied by an African facility run by the infamous Bioculture, will be crammed into tiny wooden crates and shipped to Paris in the dark and terrifying cargo hold of a passenger plane. The monkeys will then be loaded onto a cargo plane and transported to Chicago O’Hare International Airport. Upon their arrival in the U.S. on February 2, the monkeys will be subjected to yet another exhausting trip as they are loaded into the back of a truck and transported to SNBL. In total, these terrified monkeys will endure more than 80 hours of grueling transport before they arrive at SNBL, where they will likely be tormented and killed in cruel experiments.

The monkeys are currently scheduled to arrive in the U.S. this Thursday, February 2. With time running out, your voice is needed now.

Please send an e-mail to the following Air France officials now and urge them to cancel this shipment and join the growing number of airlines who refuse to ship primates for use in invasive experiments:

The winter in east-europe is really hard and we have to fight against the stinging cold every year.

Now the animal sanctuary for homeless dogs and cats needs help. 300 dogs are waiting in their kennels and we are just 6 persons, which are trying to help them.

They will freeze to death if there’s nobody and a lot of dogs even died under the snow.

Everyone who can help is invited…

Cyber Action Monday: Stop the Flow of Money to UF – Week 8

Monday, January 30th, 2012

The University of Florida Gators Clubs around the world support and fund animal torture at UF, even though non-animal alternatives are available and used world wide. Primates are imprisoned in their labs, routinely terrorized, poisoned, sickened, and killed.

by NIO Florida

This week’s target is the Central Florida Gator Club.

Last week this club published a warning about NIO activists and our anti-viv campaign on the front page of their website. Days later, an anonymous 6-page “Neighborhood Crime Watch” letter was mailed to each of Camille Marino’s neighbors warning them that she is an “Animal Rights Terrorist.” The Central Florida Gator Club is located in Orlando. Interestingly, the “Neighborhood Watch” letter was mailed from Orlando… both 60 miles south of Marino.

All we can say is “hmmm!”

We need to make this week the most productive UF Gator Club action yet.

SAMPLE LETTER

Dear Gator and Gator Supporters,

Anim*l rights act*vists in Gainesville have won their case against UF and are now in receipt of thousands of records documenting the egregious suffering that m*nkeys endure in their l*bs- funded by your money.

The first records for M*nkey 2A4 are available online.

Many people are unaware of the h*rrific experim*nts to which the University of Florida subjects s*ntient prim*tes. It is the responsibility of every person who supports UF to hold this institution accountable and stop paying dues until UF bans animal testing.

There are non-anim*l altern*tives available, but they make it much more difficult to secure millions of dollars in taxpayer-funded grants that are specifically earmarked for â inv*siveâ and â p*infulâ anim*l tests. Negoti*tion Is Over and other anim*l rights activists have been working for over a year to expose the truth.

Testing on innocent restr*ined anim*ls is scientific fraud!

Here’s an example of the myriad of technologically-advanced altern*tives from the Oxford Journal:

In 2007 researchers developed an in silico model of tuberculosis to aid in drug discovery with a prime benefit cited as being faster than real time simulated growth rates allowing phenomena of interest to be observed in minutes rather than months, injuring no anim*ls. Explorative modeling has proven to be a viable approach for the development of new hypotheses and has aided the prediction of previously undiscovered mechanisms.
I strongly urge you to consider withdrawing your support until UF chooses to adopt a policy consistent with a commitment to progressive science and respect for all anim*ls. Please persuade UF to operate with integrity and formally ban prim*te testing.

Sincerely,

If you would like to support our efforts, please consider making a donation.

The Most Important Creation In The History Of Man: Bitcoin & How to Use It

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

by Michele Suede (Libertarian News)

Recently I wrote an article entitled The Most Dangerous Creation In The History Of Man.  The article covered the emergence of Bitcoin; an electronic open source peer-to-peer currency that has no central banking server, is untraceable (when proper steps are taken), and essentially can not be taxed through coercive measures.  The article makes the point that if a currency can not be taxed and controlled, eventually it will topple the coercively funded fascist control grid you call the modern State.  Read more about it in thisBitcoin forum post that explains it in more detail.

I’ve received several requests for more information about how people can put Bitcoin to work for them.  Most articles on Bitcoin, and even the Bitcoin site itself, don’t give a clear top to bottom description of how common users of Bitcoin can put the currency to use.

It is a tad confusing  if you are not familiar with how currency markets work, but not to worry, it is not as intimidating as it sounds.  Bitcoins are generated on a logarithmic scale by dedicated “miners” who run software that generate the complex hash codes which make up a Bitcoin.  Bitcoins can not be artificially inflated and require real resources (electricity and time) to produce.

Here are a few reasons why I think Bitcoins are superior to gold as medium of exchange:

1.  It is impossible to artificially inflate the supply of Bitcoins in existence.  They are produced at a known steady rate, the supply of which will eventually top out.  The nature of Bitcoin transactions makes it so that no bankers, nor anyone else, can use fractional reserve accounting to artificially inflate the money supply.  Clearly this means governments, nor anyone else, can use artificial credit expansion to make more of them.

2.  Bitcoin transactions are made for the web!  It is impossible to actually ship gold across a wire.  The best one can do is use a medium that represents gold, such as shares of GLD, and trade those as a currency.  Clearly this leaves room for inflation of the money supply by unscrupulous bankers.  When a person transacts in Bitcoins, it is the equivalent of actually sending gold across a wire.  The unreproducible currency itself is transacted with, unlike a paper currency that represents a commodity.

3.  Bitcoins can not be confiscated since the files they reside on can be replicated and hidden in USB keys or anonymous servers.

4. The peer-to-peer nature of Bitcoin makes it as impossible to stop as BitTorrents.  Governments would have to shut down the web to stop it.

5.  It is impossible to create salted Bitcoins or “shave the edges” off of them.  There are wide spread rumors that the supply of gold that central banks are holding is loaded with tungsten bars coated in gold.

6.  Obviously they are lighter, easier to transact with, and far easier to secure than gold bullion.

Let me repeat:  Bitcoin IS NOT A PONZI – it is the same as if people were digging up gold nuggets out of the ground and then trading them as money.  Any claims that early adopters are simply promoting this as a Ponzi are like claiming people who were promoting buying Apple’s IPO were promoting a Ponzi.

Bitcoins use a 256 bit public/private key encryption algorithm that has never been cracked in practice and is considered secure by the NSA.

Bitcoins CAN NOT BE ARTIFICIALLY INFLATED.

Total Bitcoin production will TOP OUT in the future meaning NO NEW BITCOINS WILL BE CREATED BEYOND A CERTAIN DATE.

If you have additional concerns, please take the time to research the answers on your own.   Don’t blindly dismiss it because of a concern that could easily be addressed with some simple research and questioning of those who are current users of the system.

Anyone who has a through understanding of Austrian economics should immediately recognize the inherent benefits of Bitcoin.  Bitcoin is the equivalent of electronic gold.  Even better than gold in some respects.

Here are a few articles that cover the economics of the Bitcoin monetary system in more detail:

That said, lets go through the process of a common user setting up a Bitcoin account in an electronic bank and then purchasing some Bitcoins with US Dollars.  Then we will buy an item using the Bitcoins we just purchased.

Check out OKPay.com for a payment processing service that accepts Bitcoins and translates them directly into an e-wallet that can be accessed by a Master Card debit card anywhere in the world.  Checkout Crypto X Change for an easy way to buy and sell Bitcoins through normal bank accounts.

Step 1:  Setting up a Bitcoin wallet.
