 - Take action now to save the life of Nyanga, the white lioness. Only public support for Nyanga can stop the mayor of Johannesburg and the City Council from having her "euthenased", after someone was killed due to human error.

The tragedy has brought to light the Johannesburg Zoo's "breeding programme", and their mismanagement, neglect and possibly abusive treatment of the white lioness and other animals at the zoo.

Please sign the petition calling on the Johannesburg City Council to release the white lioness, Nyanga, from a lifetime of captivity into the custodianship of the Global White Lion Protection Trust, where she will be given sanctuary in her ancestral homeland of the greater Timbavati region.

memory - Do different organs have their own memories?

torture-freedom - Once clandestine, torture has gone mainstream. It is now routinely used — from the interrogation of detainees in the war on manufactured terror to police routinely using “pain compliance” techniques on school children.

  - “Mass incarceration on a scale almost unexampled in human history is a fundamental fact of our country today—perhaps the fundamental fact, as slavery was the fundamental fact of 1850. In truth, there are more black men in the grip of the criminal-justice system—in prison, on probation, or on parole—than were in slavery then.

Over all, there are now more people under ‘correctional supervision’ in America—more than six million—than were in the Gulag Archipelago under Stalin at its height.”—Adam Gopnik, “The Caging of America”.

 - Defying the universal, God-given right to choose one's own food, Bill 324-1 represents a grossly-dictatorial and oppressive regulatory nightmare, in which individuals must get permission from Big Brother to maintain their own health.

"[Bill 324-1] makes it illegal without a license to prepare, share or administer anything (that isn't presented as "food") that's made from plants, vitamins, minerals or anything else natural," writes NZ Food Security about the bill. "You'll be liable for a $50,000 fine for doing [this], even for yourself."

 Blue Cenote - The only reliable sources the Mayans had for their water were from the sky above them and the ground below.
