|Join the Bluefin Boycott|
Overfishing is pushing Atlantic bluefin tuna to the brink of extinction. These magnificent animals are famous for their racecar-like speeds, but their population has been reduced by more than 80 percent since industrial fishing began.
The best way to stop overfishing is to vote with your plate! You can send a message that you won't add to bluefin overfishing by pledging not to eat bluefin and avoiding restaurants that serve unsustainably fished seafood.
For today's Daily Action, take the pledge to reduce demand for bluefin tuna, then share it with your friends and local restaurants!
I am passing this 'Today's Action' along because the need is great and the cause is good, but unfortunately the petition is not doing as well. I am hoping that by passing it on that this blog might make a difference for the better.
As a 50 year old American woman, it amazes me that the Conservatives are still fighting against recognizing that we women do have the same rights and responsibilites as men here in the United States. While at the same time, condemn Islam for it's treatment of women.
To keep the United States from going back to the 1950's, when and where White, Anglo-Saxon, Christian Men had all the power and authority, we must re-elect Barrack Obama, because these Republican contenders are out to undo women's rights and homosexual right, so can African-American Civil Rights be far behind.
The American Civil Liberties Union was form to protect and defend Civil Rights, from freedom of Speech to freedom of/from Religion and the other Rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights. When and how this was changed is unknown, but what is needed it--for the ACLU to get back to its roots. We need the ACLU to be the ACLU, again, and not just another PAC or Super PAC. Especially now, when human rights of so many in the United States are under attack from the far right.
