[Published MaltaToday - Aug 26 2014]


French journalist Jean Baptist Alphonse Karr said "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose,” when writing on the need to abolish capital punishment."
As the NGO pointed out, "An abrogative referendum on spring hunting will take place next year and this should encourage the government to hold the local council elections at the same time to save on logistical costs. The whole aim of postponing the local council elections next year is therefore a clear attempt to discourage voters to go out and vote."
URGENT: Scientists give this porpoise until Monday—sign today!!! —by Nathan Empsall SierraRise : "We're just months away from seeing one of the most beautiful species of porpoises go extinct. Less than 100 vaquita porpoises are left off the coast of Mexico—and they're being trapped and drowned by massive, floating fishing nets. Experts say that "unless drastic action is taken immediately, the vaquita will be lost"—maybe even by the end of this year. That's why scientists are recommending an emergency ban on gillnet fishing in vaquita habitat—and they say it must be put inin place by this Monday, September 1, or we could lose these porpoises forever. There's no time to lose: Tell the governments of Mexico, the U S , and China to work together to crack down on illegal fishing and save the last of the vaquita!"
