Mark Ruffalo Tweets Gulf Damage is "Enough!"

Actor Mark Ruffalo posted an impassioned tweet recently:

“Between oil spills and natural gas disasters, the Gulf is getting hammered. Enough!”

He then added this link to a Sierra Club’s petition for President Obama. The petition comes following the news of a natural gas rig that burned out of control for two days. Thankfully, all 44 crew members were evacuated safely. Unfortunately, hundreds of gallons of natural gas leaked into the Gulf of Mexico.

The petition is asking President Obama to stop the fracking (as Ruffalo put it: ENOUGH!)  and to pursue cleaner energy sources, such as wind and solar.

Consider signing the petition to speak up for our environment and our future.

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
