Boko Haram’s Reign of Terror — the World Responds


From: Alice Jay avaa@avaaz.org

But Nigerian President Jonathan has said almost NOTHING about this in his election campaign, and his brutal army, instead of protecting civilians, is fuelling the insurgency.

The world has put this crisis in the ‘too hard to solve’ box.

The only good news: escalating violence has renewed pressure to act.

Let’s multiply that pressure now and persuade our leaders and the United Nations prioritise this crisis.

Join this urgent call — for the sake of that tiny, innocent girl, and all those like her at risk:

DON’T DELETE: Read the unauthorized Fox News story on GMOs


Release# 24091197



U.S. Citizens are being scammed. More than 44,000 pages of internal gov’t files have been hidden from you. This major scandal was recently dropped on our desk, and we’re showing it to you today.

There’s an alleged conspiracy between the U.S. government and some of the largest food industry corporations in America. It’s all about GMOs.

This controversial story has been banned from air by Fox News. AND they fired the two covering reporters.

This is so serious that many will want to IMPEACH Obama after learning what he’s done.

Could this be be the one thing that finally brings him down? Warning, this video is shocking and may make you sick to your stomach.

Help Protect This Shy Forest cCreature


Defenders of Wildlife

 Replyto: defenders@mail.defenders.org


It is extremely rare to see a fisher in the wild. And it may soon be

impossible on the West Coast, as their once widespread population

slowly heads toward extinction.


For thousands of years, fishers, a bushy-tailed cat-sized mammal,

roamed throughout the forests of the Pacific Coast states. But over

the past century, they’ve been disappearing at such a staggering

rate that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is finally

addressing the threats this imperiled species faces and proposing to

protect them under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).


Tell FWS that you support protecting the West Coast fisher under the







It wasn’t until 1940 that the U.S. banned the unrestricted

trapping of Pacific fishers, highly valued for their soft pelts.

Rampant loss of forest habitat due to aggressive logging in earlier

decades remains a problem, and unsustainable logging continues to

impact fisher habitat. Abnormally large and severe fires as well as

poisoning by rodenticide used in illegal marijuana growing operations

on public lands are also contributing to the decline of this rare and

charismatic critter.


Without help, fishers will lose their fight for survival and could

begin to disappear from our West Coast forests.


Support listing the West Coast fisher as threatened under the ESA!




Defenders has been working hard to protect West Coast fishers in

California, as well as provide support to the proposed reintroduction

of fishers to Washington state. With your help, we can finally get

them the protection and critical habitat they need to survive!


But we can’t do it without you. FWS is asking for public

comments by February 4th to decide whether to list this creature

– or let them slowly disappear from our western forests.


Your voice makes a difference – tell FWS that you support ESA

protection for the West Coast fisher!



Thank you for all you do.

Henry A. Giroux, Truthout: US society is in a free fall, as all vestiges of social and economic equality disappear, public provisions evaporate and the financial elite controls government.

Siemens Linked to Major Rights Abuses Across Americas


German Technology Giant Confronted With Proof of Wrongdoing at Annual Shareholder Meeting


Munich, Germany: Dozens of protestors from a coalition of German and international organizations converged today on the shareholder meeting of leading German corporation Siemens to condemn the company’s role in egregious human rights violations from Brazil to Mexico. Citing a litany of violations, protestors underscored Siemens’ responsibility as a major equipment supplier to projects and governments that deliberately disregard international rights conventions, leading to abuses including the intimidation and murder of human rights defenders.


Among the fiercest controversies invoked in today’s shareholder counterproposals was Siemens’ key role in Brazil’s Belo Monte Dam [ http://www.internationalrivers.org/node/2288 ], currently under construction in the Amazon. Today’s interventions showed how the company’s joint venture with Germany’s Voith Hydro to sell huge hydroelectric turbines to Belo Monte’s dam consortium Norte Energia undermines Siemens’ purported respect for human rights and the rule of law.


After hearing accusations into the dam’s myriad human rights violations at Siemens’ 2014 shareholder meeting, CEO Joe Kaeser demanded proof of these irregularities, as well as those of another notorious dam project in Honduras known as Agua Zarca [ http://www.internationalrivers.org/node/8045 ]. In the run-up to today’s meeting, Mr. Kaeser received irrevocable evidence that his company is abetting some of the world’s most disreputable projects.


“The involvement of Siemens in Belo Monte and Agua Zarca shows without a doubt that the company’s Managing Board violates the UN Guiding Principles, Convention 169 of the International Labor Organization, recommendations of the World Commission on Dams, and its own corporate governance guidelines,” asserted David Vollrath from the German initiative CounterCurrent.


Prior to the shareholder meeting, activists circulated two dossiers documenting severe human rights abuses of local populations linked to the dams, demanding that Siemens institute sweeping reforms in its business practice and policy, including a “commitment to exclude projects that exhibit marked human rights irregularities from the company’s future business portfolio.” Detailing violations of the right to consultation, the right to land, culture, food, health, and the right to due process, the dossiers spearhead a call for corporate accountability.


“The Siemens board employs the flawed logic that rights violations associated with its global portfolio is not their problem,” stated Christian Poirier of Amazon Watch. “The opposite is true: companies directly participating in egregious projects cannot disassociate themselves from violations in an attempt to avoid their own obligation to uphold these rights.”


In addition to Siemens’ role in the polemic Brazilian and Honduran dams, today’s shareholder counterproposals also denounce the company’s role in wind energy projects in southern Mexico that have been violently imposed upon local people, spurring corruption and intimidation, thereby wrecking the social structures in the communities.


“European shareholders are often unaware of the human rights abuses their investments are provoking in the global south,” said Andrea Lammers of Öko-Büro Munich. “Ethically minded shareholders should hold companies responsible by learning the brutal facts about these projects and how the Siemens Managing Board deliberately turns a blind eye to these violations in order to turn a profit.”


“As demonstrated by Belo Monte, serious human rights violations including the lack of free, prior and informed consultation and consent among threatened indigenous peoples are abundantly evident in the early stages of planning and licensing of mega-projects,” stated Brent Millikan of International Rivers. “Major equipment suppliers such as Siemens need to see the writing on the wall and ensure effective safeguards to avoid participation in disastrous projects.”

Help Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from Harm!


Defenders of Wildlife

 Replyto: defenders@mail.defenders.org


President Obama took a strong stand for polar bears and other Arctic

wildlife yesterday – and now it’s up to Congress to follow



By recommending formal wilderness status for the Coastal Plain of the

Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, the President’s proposal urges

Congress to ensure that the crown jewel of America’s National

Wildlife Refuge System will be safe from oil drilling and development

for all time.


Tell your members of Congress to support HR 239 and the Senate

companion legislation to designate the Coastal Plain of the Arctic

Refuge as wilderness!




The Arctic Refuge is a landscape of superlatives. It’s the one

of the most important onshore polar bear denning habitats on the North

Slope of Alaska. It hosts the annual migration of the Refuge’s

Porcupine caribou herd which is one of the longest overland mammal

migrations in the world. Grizzly bears, wolves, muskoxen, arctic

foxes, wolverines are just a few of the other wild animals that live

in this magnificent wild land.


But for decades, the Coastal Plain of the Refuge has also been the

target of oil companies and others who would plunder this unique and

fragile land, causing irreparable harm. Wilderness designation would

end that debate once and for all.


Tell your members of Congressto follow the President’s lead and

designate the Coastal Plain of the Arctic Refuge as wilderness.




Thank you for all you do!

The Koch $1 Billion Plan


Common Cause 

Replyto: causenet@commoncause.org


Charles and David Koch’s secretive network of dark money groups

and Super PACs announced Monday that they plan on spending $889

million to influence the 2016 election!


That’s more than the Republican Party spent in 2012. And the

Democratic Party. It’s more than President Obama’s

campaign spent in 2008. And it’s over a $1 million dollars a day

until the 2016 election! The Koch brothers have a nearly $1 billion

plan to buy a government that works for them. But we’re building

a movement of people to take back our democracy.


Kick in $5 dollars to fight back against big money influence,

don’t let the Koch Brothers drowned out your voice!




koch brothers






Politicians hungry for cash are flocking to the Koch Brothers’

exclusive fundraising getaways, hoping to become the next members of

the “Koch Caucus”.


When it comes time for the Koch Caucus members to make policy, they

won’t be listening to you or me. It will be more attempts to

block pro-democracy reforms like the DISCLOSE Act, which would bring

transparency to the millions of dollars being invested in politics by

undisclosed sources. It will be more deregulation that puts corporate

profit ahead of the health and well being of people. And it will be a

government that actively works to restrict voting rights and access to

the polls.


Your donation today will help strengthen our growing campaign to stem

the tidal wave of money that the Citizens United ruling unleashed five

years ago. And now this tidal wave is poised to break over the 2016

election. Never before has the support and work of Common Cause

members like you been so important. Instead of a government that works

for the few, we are fighting together for a democracy that works for
