Archive for the ‘Animal Rights’ Category

Everybody use it nowadays.  Tags are used to archive video, pictures and files. It is a great and simple way to search through a lot of content. A lot of services like YouTube and Flickr are using tags to organize all their content. But did you know you can use this to protest against companies?

For example:

A lot of companies are using YouTube to publish their videos.  This video are categorized with tags.
YouTube displays  also videos which are related to this video. YouTube finds videos with similar content using tags.
Company X is selling all kind of products. Company X funds animal experiments. As activist you can make videos with your message.
Upload your video (give it a good title and description) and tag it with the name of this company and other relevant tags. This way if someone search on this company name or is viewing a video about or from this company then youtube can match your video as related video to the videos of this company.  People will see your message and maybe they will click on it and see your video.

Google has got some nice tools. Some of them you can use during your campaigns. Google Maps with Street View is one of them.

Before this feature was available it was sometimes difficult for me to go to a place where we were going to do a protest.  It is always a good thing to know how the area looks like before you are doing a protest over there.

With Google Maps and Street View you are now able to get a direct view of the location. It will help more to organise your protest and you can think ahead about where everybody should stand. Another benefit of this tools are that you can send a map and picture of the location to your activists so they know where the protest will be.

Circus animals

As some of you know I am involved in an actiongroup against animal cruelty in the circus. The campaign we have is working ok. It creates many discussions on the internet, in the press and in the politics. I recently designed a new banner to use for the campaign.

Nice isn’t it?

Also I got an e-mail about a wild elephant in India who freed another elephant from a circus. A great story. You should read it here.

I am really busy at the moment, so in the past time no log from me.. Great news again.

Minister Veerman from the ministery of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality has announced he will stop the fur import also in the Netherlands. That is really great!

It is again one step further. He announced it after a debate in the parliament about an import stop. Almost every party was against the import of fur from seals, so the only thing to do for him was to give in and will stop the import. Marianne Thieme from the Party for the Animals had a great speech again and also talked about Seal Alert. More information about them you can find here.
