HIJACKING IN PROGRESS!
New York City, October 21, 2008 Will we be able to counter attack the planned hijacking of our rights as tax paying New Yorkers
Limited and restricted by only a few zero’s, following their personal dollar signs, working class New Yorkers, those who drive the city with blue collar sweat and a fierce loyalty are succumbing to the “capriciousness” of the wealthy cronies of Bloomberg’s billions. A threat to “democracy” in our local government is becoming much more than a shadow looming in those hallowed halls of “quasi democracy.”
New York needs “change’ in order to morph into a city for the people, by the people; where constituents and their votes count and “everyman” takes priority over “corporate commerce” and the “whispered whims” of the super rich. This means electing a Mayor whose sense of honor and respect for all socio economic classes, cultures, and colors transcends personal agendas.
Queens Councilman, Tony Avella is making a run for Mayor amidst the furor in City Hall , as a tyrannical Speaker Quinn and blustery Bloomberg shove an elitist third finger in our faces.
Come and meet a real champion of the people. On Tuesday evening the 21st of October, from 7 – 8:30 pm, an open house reception for democratic, Mayoral Candidate Tony Avella will be given at the upper , east side home of international activist, Marijo Gillis, founder of WAG NY, (www.wagny.org and www.wagny.net )a political justice action force based in NYC and Athens, Greece.
We need a candidate with a revitalizing and refreshing commitment to all New Yorkers; a guy who is making “politics” a “respectable vocation” and not running on a platform of cronyism and political pandering. We need and want a candidate who keeps out of the pockets of big business, respects the wishes of the voters and who has no desire to master the art of speaking out of both sides of his mouth. “ Marijo Gillis
Please take a few moments and watch this video – in memorium and tribute to all the animals that suffer in this “human” world.
As the Olympic torch travels across the globe
amid protests about China’s human rights record
and the recent crackdown in Tibet, one
quick-service giant and other companies upon
which the industry relies for products and
services are finding themselves caught up in the controversy.
McDonald’s Corporation, The Coca-Cola Company,
and Visa, among others, have shelled out millions
to attach their names to this year’s Summer
Games, slated to run from August 8–24 in Beijing.
As The Olympic Partner (TOP) sponsors, the
companies have exclusive marketing rights to this
year’s events, affording them use of Olympic
imagery for products, preferential access to
Olympic broadcast advertising, on-site concession
opportunities, acknowledgement of their
sponsorship through a recognition program, and
other benefits. Essentially, they have a window
to the billions of people in more than 200
countries worldwide that follow the games,
according to the International Olympic Committee’s web site.
But this year, in addition to that access, the
sponsors are also taking heat from human rights
organizations and others who say they should be
doing more to denounce China’s treatment of
Tibetans; the country’s close ties to Sudan,
where government soldiers have carried out the
widespread killing of civilians in the Darfur
region since 2004; and its dismal human rights record in general.
Human Rights Watch, a U.S.-based organization
that conducts fact-finding investigations into
human rights abuses around the world, has had
meetings with Coca-Cola in attempts to convince
the company to use its stage as an Olympic
sponsor to address the human rights situation in
China, says Minky Worden, the group’s media
director. She says Human Rights Watch had hoped
the company would speak out against the limited
press freedom, forced evictions of Chinese
citizens prior to the Olympics, and crackdowns on
civil society in Tibet and the rest of China.
Even so, the company has thus far refused to take
a stand publicly on the issue.
In lieu of an interview for this story, Coca-Cola
provided the following statement:
“The Coca-Cola Company joins others in expressing
deep concern for the situation on the ground in
Tibet. We know that all parties involved hope for a peaceful resolution.
“While it would be an inappropriate role for
sponsors to comment on the political situation of
individual nations, as the longest-standing
sponsor of the Olympic Movement, we firmly
believe that the Olympics are a force for good.
Since 1928, we have supported the Olympic Games
wherever they’ve been held, and have witnessed
first-hand the cultural, economic and social
benefits they bring to the host city and country.
“We remain committed to supporting the Torch
Relay, which provides a unique opportunity to
share the Olympic values of unity, pride,
optimism and inspiration with people all over the world.”
Worden acknowledged that Coca-Cola made a point
of engaging Human Rights Watch in discussions
about the company’s stance but says the group is
ultimately disappointed with Coca-Cola’s decision not to speak out.
“In its corporate social responsibility policies,
Coca-Cola seems to be willing to take up these
issues, but in the face of abuses in China,
they’re proving to be less willing to act when
given the opportunity,” she says.
Human Rights Watch has sent letters to all of the
Olympic sponsors, including McDonald’s and Visa,
since September 2007 in attempts to convince them
to speak out about human rights abuses in China.
So far, the group says, none have acted on their
recommendations, though a meeting is scheduled
with Visa, which did not return calls or e-mails for this story.
When contacted for comment, McDonald’s issued the following statement:
“McDonald’s is proud of our long-time sponsorship
of the Olympic Games. We believe in the spirit of
the Games and their unique ability to engage the
world in a way that is constructive, positive and
inspirational. Our focus has been and will
continue to be on supporting the athletes, their
teams, and the power of the Olympic Games to
reinforce excellence, unity and achievement among people the world over.
“Concerning political issues, these need to be
resolved by governments and international bodies
such as the United Nations where they can most
effectively drive discussions, diplomacy and help speed solutions.
Dream for Darfur: “The window is closing when the
Olympics are over. We’re asking sponsors to raise
their voices about this genocide.”
“Regarding Tibet, our focus continues to remain
on the Games and the athletes, and we hope that a
peaceful resolution can be reached for all parties concerned.”
Dream for Darfur is another advocacy campaign
targeting Olympic sponsors to speak out against
China‘s policies. The group seeks to use the
Olympic Games as a point of leverage to encourage
the Chinese government to convince the Sudanese
government to allow United Nations peacekeeping
troops to enter the war-torn Darfur region. China
has been accused of continuing to support the
Sudanese regime even as civilians are killed in
the western part of the country.
“We have this one small window of opportunity in
which we can make a difference and get our
message across,” says Ellen Freudenheim,
corporate outreach director for the organization.
“That window is closing when the games are over.
We’re asking them to raise their voices about this genocide.”
Last year, Dream for Darfur issued a report card
grading each of the corporate sponsors on their
corporate responsibility responses to China’s
support of Sudan. McDonald’s received a C,
Coca-Cola was given a D, and Visa got an F.
Freudenheim says if the sponsors continue to
remain silent, she anticipates demonstrations at
their company headquarters. A separate campaign,
Turn Off for Darfur, is encouraging Olympic
viewers to turn off their advertisements during
the games if the sponsors take no action.
But Peter Shankman, founder of Shankman
Consulting, a marketing, public relations, and
crisis management firm based in New York City,
says despite the criticism they are receiving,
the sponsors are handling the situation as best they can.
“It’s the only thing they can do,” he says. “They
have put a fortune into this already. I guarantee
they’re not too happy about their sponsorship
right now, but at this point, to pull out,
there’s no way they could save face.”
The sponsors also have a vested interest in playing nice with China, he says.
“The Olympics will blow over in a few months,”
Shankman says. “What’s not going to blow over is
that China has billions of consumers.”
Moreover, Shankman says he doubts that the
sponsors will be significantly hurt by the protests and criticism.
“So far, nothing about these protests has shown
me anything that would make me think anybody is
going to be hurt at all,” he says.
So what does this have to do with quick-service restaurants themselves?
“I would imagine there’s going to be some promo
programs in some of those outlets leading up to
the Olympics,” says David Chapman, CEO of 919
Marketing, a North Carolina–based marketing
agency. “Fast-food restaurants are big on tying
into topical events, and they’re going to have to
think about that very carefully.”
He says pulling out promotions could be costly,
and sponsors and restaurants should have contingency plans in place.
But Paul Sickmon, president of Knox Sports
Marketing, a sports sponsorship management and
negotiation company based in Tampa, Florida, says
there’s no telling what could happen between now and the Games this summer.
“It’s too early to determine whether the sponsors
are going to react or should react,” he says. “We have to wait and see.”
A REPREHENSIBLE COMMENTARY ON AN ANCIENT CIVILIZATION
The smell of death was everywhere in Beykoz today. This image speaks for itself. There is no more room for lying. Nomore fake press releases, no more nationalistic bullshit. We have stopped the criminal enterprise organized by the BeykozMunicipality, in agreement with Ayzer Buyuker.
Tomorrow, if there is justice, Ishan Ozhuz and Ayzer Buyuker will be questioned for this crime. This will be the second time Buyuker is stopped right in the middle of a massacre. May he rot in hell… one day but for now may he suffer the infamy of being the most despised person in Turkey…the country’s most famous dog killer.
On Monday, if there is justice, Ozhuz will present his resignation and the major of Beykoz will accept it.
The major of Beykoz will have to give some serious explanations to the press and to thousands of animal lovers both in Turkey and abroad. The crime has been horrendous.. worst of all it has been done right in front of your face, accompanied by lies and falsehoods. Beykoz municipality slandered two women, Yasemin Baban and Berrin
Olkay in order to be able to commit the mass murder of 2000 dogs.
Today we discovered the graves.. bodies still fresh… the stench of putrefaction everywhere in the air.
Today we witnessed the embarrassed faces of the Beykoz Zabita. They knew what was going on. They did nothing to stop it.
Today we have seen the best and the worst of this country. Corruption, cruelty, falsehoods and criminal instincts against the unstoppable drive of a small group of people that simply wont allow such abuse any longer.
Monday will be a very embarrassing day for the Beykoz Municipality… but today is a very sad day for the entire country.
We mourn the loss of Pamuk, Fistik, Toby, Sultan and the many many dogs that have been viciously killed by Ayzer Buyuker and his gang of criminal thugs.
We are happy to have been able to save so many others.. the assassins had just started their job.
Call the Major of Beykoz, Muharrem Ergül: 0533 664 70 58 or email him on email@example.com .
Call the Beykoz Municipality and tell them you wont be lied to anymore.
Demand the resignation of the responsible people.

The images you are about to see where taken in Sariyer last year. SHKD found the place in the condition you are about to see. This is the story of the rescue of Fathma Balkanlis’ dogs and their treatment and recovery. The images tell the story themselves..
Finally this story is out.WeI knew about this for a long time but was unable to say anything.I have always said Fatma should be STOPPED from having any animals. Sadly she still has a place opposite Ciragan Palace and she is still collecting money. Name protected – Istanbul
Years ago – April 1999- Istanbul Buyuksehir Belediye closed its massive Hasdal rubbish dump. There were over 1000 dogs living on this ‘copluk’, the weakest ones starving to death. Most had been dumped there by belediyes. As the rubbish dump was being covered over with earth, it was obvious that these dogs would either starve to death or invade surrounding suburbs and villages.
Robert Smith, the Founder of SHKD was so upset by the sight of these dogs that decided to set up a neutering clinic on the edge of the rubbish dump, neuter, vaccinate, treat and feed these dogs. The Vali gave a tent, Mustafa Sarigul gave a portakabin and we set up the clinic. One night in July ’99 the clinic was destroyed as revenge for an anti-poisoning demonstration. We then made a shelter on the site of the destroyed clinic, where the 1000 dogs lived and were fed by SHKD.We sent as many of these dogs to new homes in Western Europe as we could, as the alternative was to put them to sleep or keep them in our shelter for life.
The reason why we spend so much of our own money – SHKD receives almost no donations – on rehoming dogs in W. Europe is that the alternative is to keep them in our open forest shelter for the rest of their lives.
Kopeklerimizi sahiplenen ailelerin isimlerini ve iletisim bilgilerini onlarin izinleri olmadan veremeyiz/vermeyecegiz. Eger bu kisiler fanatikler (ki bunlardan cok cok COK var) tarafindan rahatsiz edilir ve kopeklere kotu davranmak, vs. nedeniyle suclanirlarsa bu bizim hatamiz olmus olur. Onlarin isim ve adreslerini izinleri olmadan paylasmamiz ne ahlaki olarak dogru ne de yasal.
Internette bazi kisilerin anlattiklari hikayeler ve suclamalar o kadar yanlis, o kadar yaniltici ve o kadar saptirilmis ki, insan acaba bu kisiler hayvanlara yardim etmekle mi ilgileniyor yoksa sadece kendi egolariyla mi diye merak etmeden duramiyor. Bu gibi insanlarla ilgilenebilecegimiz zaman sinirli. Zamanimizi kopekleri kisirlastirma, onlarin bakimini ustlenme, gerektiginde kurtarma ve sahiplendirme ile gecirmeyi tercih ediyoruz, cunku internettekilere cevap vererek zaman gecirmemiz bir tek hayvana bile yarar saglamiyor.
Sorulara ne kadar cevap versek de, sahiplendirilmis mutlu kopeklerle ilgili ne kadar bilgi versek de, ne kadar yanlisi duzeltmeye calissak da kendisini kopeklerin dunyadaki tek kurtaricisi olarak goren, kendisi disindaki herkesin kotu olduguna inanan ve baskalarinin da hayvanlarin iyiligi icin birseyler basarmakta oldugunu psikolojik olarak kabul edemeyen kindar, kiskanc kisiler her zaman oluyor.
Turkiye’deki kopekleri Avrupa’da sahiplendirmek Turkiye’deki sokak kopegi sorununa bir cozum degildir. Ancak belediyeler kopekleri oldurmeye ya da kopek hapishanelerine koymaya devam ettigi surece, kisirlastirilmis kopekleri aldigimiz yerlere geri koyamadigimiz surece alternatiflerimiz sunlar: (1) otanazi (2) kopekleri hayatlarinin sonuna kadar barinakta tutmak (3) kopekleri Turkiye icinde ya da disinda ailelere sahiplendirmek. Maliyeti cok yuksek oldugu halde biz mumkun oldugunda hep 3. Secenegi tercih ediyoruz.
Gormek uzere oldugunuz resimler gecen sene Sariyer’de cekildiler. SHDK burayi gormek uzere oldugunuz sekilde buldu. Kopekler gormek uzere oldugunuz haldeydiler. Bu Fathma Balkanli’nin kopeklerinin kurtulma, tedavi edilme ve iyilesme surecinin hikayesi. Resimler hikayeyi kendileri anlatiyor…
Savage Seoul aims to reclassify dogmeat
This is despicable!
The Seoul city government is seeking to classify man’s best friend as livestock in order to set food safety standards for South Korean lovers of dog meat, officials say.
Somewhere between two and four million dogs are estimated to be consumed in South Korea every year but the slaughtering and processing is carried out in dirty environments and poses a risks to diners’ health, they said.
Since dogs are not currently classed as livestock there are no hygiene regulations on their slaughter, officials said.
“Dogs are consumed in their millions in this country every year. That’s a fact. We have to take care of this situation,” Lee Hae-Woo, head of the city government’s department of food safety, said.
“We plan to recommend to the central government that dogs are classified as livestock.
“This is like a hot potato but we don’t pretend the issue does not exist.”
South Korea‘s capital has always been ambivalent about dog meat.
To avoid adverse publicity before the 1988 Olympics, the city banned dog meat and snake meat as “abhorrent food.”
The order is now largely ignored and an estimated 500 dog meat restaurants operate in Seoul alone.
The reclassification proposal sparked angry reactions from animal activists, who staged street protests and launched on-line signature campaigns.
“No other country in the world but South Korea gives a legal green light to dog meat consumption,” the Korea Association for Animal Protection said in a statement.
“South Korea’s motto is globalisation but it seeks to go back to the Stone Age as far as dog meat consumption is concerned.”
Lee Won-Bok, association president, said if the proposal became reality, dog meat consumption would increase drastically.
“It’s horrible to imagine dog meat on display next to beef and ham at supermarkets,” he said.
“It would also be nauseating to see roasted dog meat on the menu of your restaurant.”
The vile Visual Arts Biennial of Central America has decided that the ‘installation’ of a starving dog was actually art, so that Guillermo Vargas Habacuc, the “artist’ has been invited to repeat his cruel action for the biennial of 2008.
A cruel and brutal chapter in the history of an alleged Godless Central America. This “psychopath – artist should rot in hell for an eternity and suffer immeasurably on earth til he gets there. God, I hope he doesn’t procreate until he’s neutered. There are enough of the devil’s spawn on earth.
