molai6 - Assam's Jadav Payeng has never heard of Giono's book. But he could be Bouffier. He has single-handedly grown a sprawling forest on a 550-hectare sandbar in the middle of the Brahmaputra. It now has many endangered animals, including at least five tigers, one of which bore two cubs recently.

"We were surprised to find such a dense forest on the sandbar....He treats the trees and animals like his own children. Seeing this, we, too, decided to pitch in," says Saikia.

"We're amazed at Payeng. He has been at it for 30 years. Had he been in any other country, he would have been made a hero."

 - 4/15 ~ Sun (core Self) ~oppose~ Saturn (reality):

This energy is a push-pull between who you are and who you want to be; between what you “want” to do and what you “have” to do. I always tell people, do what you “gotta do” so you can do what you “wanna do”.....

 - 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.

The attacks of September 11, 2001 opened the floodgates and provided the foundation for mainstreaming the use of torture and dismissing moral objections to the practice.

  - “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”.
