Canadian Amanda Lindhout and Australian Nigel Brennan Free At Last!

I wish to thank all who took the time to sign the petition on behalf of Amanda Lindhout & Nigel Brennan. Unfortunately the target goal of 5000 signatures was never reached ,  on or about the day they were released  it had been decided to send the 2,680 signatures we did get anyway.

However that became unnecessary as the most excellent news broke on Wednesday, November 25, 2009;  after 15 months of darkness, both Amanda and Nigel had been released into safe hands!

Prayers, perseverence by family, friends and strangers, dreams of home, and cold hard cash is what finally freed these two.

Now is a time for them to be safely surrounded by loved ones so that they may heal. I am sure both will spend much time absorbing the terrible ordeal they have been through. Surreal and horrific as it must have been, I can only imagine the days and months ahead will be spent finding themsleves and coming to grips with what went on when they were held hostage. Their lives are now forever changed, but if nothing else is evident at this time, that both Amanda & Nigel are extraordinarily strong people is. I have every belief they will emerge from this difficult experience victorious.  My hope is that they take all the time they need and not rush into things, I wish them both a speedy and healthy recovery.

God bless.

Petition of the Day – Hunger Hurts – Fight to End Hunger!

Fight to End Hunger!

Hunger Hurts

pet-hunger-main

Target: U.S. Congress
Sponsored by: Feeding America (formerly known as Second Harvest)

Approximately 13 million American children are at risk of hunger every day. These undernourished children are in great danger of social and educational problems.

While there are food programs in place, too often logistical barriers, lack of awareness and inadequate funding prevent many hungry children from accessing these programs and getting the assistance they need.

The Child Nutrition Reauthorization bill will ensure quality, healthy and safe meals to children every school day. Urge Congress to support the bill and make sure all our nation’s children get three nutritious meals every day.

Petition of the Day – Help Stop the International Polar Bear Trade

Filed under: Petitions 2 — freeamandafreenigel @ 22:25
Tags: , , ,
Target: U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service

Sponsored by: Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund

In some countries, collectors can still buy polar bear skin rugs, claws, skulls and other parts of these animals — even as these beloved bears struggle for survival in a warming world.

The U.S. can strengthen protections for polar bears under international law by proposing to restrict trade in polar bear products — a move that could save the lives of hundreds of bears each year. But officials need to hear from you.

Take action now — Sign Defenders of Wildlife’s petition to urge the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to propose an international ban on the trade of polar bear products.

Petition of the Day: Free Aung San Suu Kyi

Aung San Suu Kyi

Nobel Peace Prize winner and pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi has been sentenced to 18 months of extended house arrest by a court in Burma in a thinly veiled effort by Burma’s military junta to keep Suu Kyi imprisoned during next year’s election.

Western leaders are calling for UN Security Council action and a global arms embargo against Burma as international outrage against this sham sentence grows. China and Russia have opposed efforts to condemn Burma’s junta for human rights violations in the past, and as permanent members of the UN Security Council with veto power, their support is critical to successfully pressuring the Burmese junta.

The military regime in Burma is clearly trying to silence Suu Kyi and prevent her from any involvement in the country’s upcoming elections. We cannot stand by and allow her voice and the voices of those who demand freedom in Burma to be silenced.

Please ask China and Russia to join with the UN Security Council and the global community in condemning Burma’s actions, calling for the immediate release of Aung San Suu Kyi and all political prisoners in Burma, and supporting a global arms embargo against Burma.
