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, ....

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

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.

FREE THE ROADS FROM TOLLS - 5 April 2015 - I Don't Pay Movement protesting against the tolls - PHOTOS

I Don't Pay Movement is fighting for the social injustice for over 5 years now, alongside with people from all over the world (solidarity marches, supporting workers' strikes, reconnecting electricity to poor families, animal rights, etc). We aim to overthrow the unfair capitalistic system and in turn to replace a system according which the society will produce qualitative goods and services to all people and thus these, will not be a privillege but a right independently of their social or economical status. 

Our movement is born from the current social needs and constitutes a political movement of disobedience and resistance. Fundamental political place and axis of action constitutes the access to all social goods that are essential for human's decent existence. We strongly claim free of charge education, health, streets, public spaces, Means of Public Transport, Water, Electricity, all natural goods (eg beaches, forests, air), and each good of social character for each person, whether Greek or immigrant. 


Solidarity is our weapon. 

This Sunday, for more that two hours, members and friends of the 'I Don't Pay' Movement let all drivers pass by the tolls without paying the usual fair.

The unity of a chicken and the cockroach

As an haitian proverb says ''unity with a chicken and a roach happens in the belly of a chicken''. 

Capital is the fundamental enemy of the working class.

Compromising with capital will never lead to workers' emancipation.

The I Don't Pay Movement Conference took place today January 11, 2015 at our headquarters in Kaftatzoglou 8  street, in Athens.
It was remarkable that many of our comrades who attended the conference, traveled hundreds of miles before we meet up.
A variety of fruitfull and optimistic ideas were contibuted by our members.
  The contribution of all the comrades was valuable regarding the assessment of the political situation and forthcoming elections.Unanimously we agreed that elections do not bring fundamental change and that the most essential factor for social change is people's presence to the streets in the struggle for radical social changes.
Our personal difficulties and everyday experiences were also discussed, as much as the movement's organisational issues and political persecutions we are facing for 5 years political disobedience. 
Amongst the organisational decisions we also decided that within the coming months we will be holding our regular Conference with all our members.

Είναι αυτοί που ΔΕΝ βολεύτηκαν αν και θα μπορούσαν, είναι αυτοί που ΔΕΝ το βάζουν κάτω ακόμα και αν ΔΕΝ υπάρχει φως μπροστά, είναι αυτοί που ΔΕΝ κάνουν πίσω όταν τους τρέχουν σε αστυνομίες και δικαστήρια, είναι αυτοί που ΔΕΝ ΠΛΗΡΩΝΟΥΝ ΚΑΙ ΚΑΛΑ ΚΑΝΟΥΝ.

" Άνθρωποι που κάνουν πραγματικό έργο, βοηθάνε και αγωνίζονται για τα δικαιώματα μας και οι πράξεις τους συνάδουν με τα λόγια τους τα οποία "μεταφέρουν" έξω από την ασφάλεια του καναπέ τους. 

Δεν φοβούνται και δεν κάνουν πίσω με την δικαιολογία του "δεν βαριέσαι τίποτα δεν θ'αλλαξει".

Polytechneion_1From the start in 1967, the junta, trying to control every aspect of politics, had interfered with student syndicalism, banning student elections in universities, forcefully drafting leftist students and enforcing non-elected student syndicate leaders in the national student’s syndicate, EFEE. These actions eventually created a fierce anti-junta sentiment among students that was first manifested by the suicide-protest against the junta of geology student Kostas Georgakis in 1970 in Genoa, Italy.

Worldwide Fur Free Friday, 2014

"The Worldwide Fur Free Friday is one of largest global days of action in the history of animal rights organizations. 

We have had demonstrations numbering up to 200 locations around the world: Held on the Friday that is the beginning of the big holiday sales. 

Demonstrations (against businesses and shops that sell fur) are held globally, in one united voice, to save the voiceless victims of the cruel fur trade. 

This year, to take place on November 28th."

Greece will follow with a demonstration on November the 29th, with a Fur Free Saturday (details will soon be announced).

Η Fur Free Friday είναι μία από τις μεγαλύτερες παγκόσμιες ημέρες δράσης στην ιστορία των οργανώσεων για τα δικαιώματα των ζώων. 

Έχουν διαδηλώσει μέχρι και 200 διαφορετικά μέρη σε όλο τον κόσμο: Πραγματοποιείται την Παρασκευή που ξεκινούν οι μεγάλες εορταστικές εκπτώσεις των καταστημάτων. 

Οι διαμαρτυρίες (κατά των επιχειρήσεων και των καταστημάτων που πωλούν γούνα) γίνονται σε παγκόσμιο επίπεδο, με μια ενωμένη φωνή, σε μια προσπάθεια να σώσουν τα θύματα του αποτρόπαιου εμπορίου γούνας, μιας και οι δικές τους κραυγές δεν ακόγουνται. 

Φέτος, θα πραγματοποιηθεί στις 28 Νοεμβρίου.

Η Ελλάδα θα συμμετάσχει το Σάββατο 29 Νοεμβρίου με ένα Fur Free Saturday (οι λεπτομέρειες θα ανακοινωθούν σύντομα).
