YouTube – The UAA — Stop Fighting The Dogs! [Official].

Hi Everyone, I came across the Urban Animal Alliance (UAA) through idealist.org.  Even if rap isn’t your cup of tea the message that the UAA is sending out in this video is a positive one.  I think they are a courageous and dedicated group of people.  When you get a chance stop by their youtube channel and give them your support.  Lets put an end to dogfighting!

This is right form their youtube channel “he Urban Animal Alliance is a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness of and ultimately ending dogfighting in urban America.

Another Successful Year For Sea Shepherd!

November 28, 2010 Leave a comment

It looks like Capt. Paul Watson and his crew of Sea Shepherds had another successful year by saving 528 whales from the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean.  The campaign was titled Operation Waltzing Matilda and according to Sea Shepherd it was “the most ambitious and effective campaign to defend the great whales that we have ever undertaken”(link).  Although the campaign was successful it came at a high cost.  The Ady Gil was rammed and sunk by the Shonan Maru 2, the Bob Barker was rammed by Yushin Maru 3 and suffered some hull damage and finally Captain Bethune was taking prisoner by the Japanese after he boarded a Japanese whaling vessel and attempted to make a citizens arrest.  Kudos to Captain Bethune for his gallantry and dedication to protecting whales.  I wish Sea Shepherd well with there upcoming Antarctic whale defense campaign Operation No Compromise!
