I thank you for everything; for commenting, for your compliments regarding my posts, for the links and for offering me this contract. I regrett to inform you that I’m not interested in any kind of online contract. Thanks for understanding!
News: As Earth Day was just last Saturday the German human-rights organisation “GfbV” published an article about the problems aboriginal tribes all around the world face at the moment:
>Within the next five years India is going to spend 15 billions of dollars on producing ore and coal. The thing is that most is going to be won from territory that currently belongs to a native people called the Adivasi and the Indian government seems to ignore the fact that they do not want their territory to be dug up, their water resources polluted and some food resources destroyed for the production of something the tribe itself doesn’t even have any use for.
>On Mindanao, the Philippines a native tribe called the Lumad constantly gets pushed back and chased away by people who are hired to dig for gold, copper and silver there. 16 Lumad even got murdered just for not abandoning their old sources of food and water despite diggers digging for gold there.
>In Sweden and Finland deforestation and global warming trouble the Sami as their reindeer feed on forest trees and have a slightly higher mortality rate as climate change also changes the vegetation surrounding them. Another problem is that they lose land to companies digging for ore.
>US-President Trump announced the construction of a 1.890 km long pipeline in North Dakota. Many Sioux demonstrate against the Dakota Access Pipeline as there is no guarantee that its construction is not going to damage ancient burial sites.

Re-upload: “http://www.wcs.org/”, “http://www.21stcenturytiger.org/” and “http://www.wpsi-india.org/donations/index.php” are the homepages of three organisations I do trust. I think they deserve getting supported. After all it’s not only this tiger that is endangered, but its whole habitat.

When examining worldwide air pollution “WHO” came to a surprising conclusion. The cities with the highest death rate due to polluted air are located to Pakistan, India, Iran, Mongolia, Botswana, the USA and the EU and not a single one was located to a developing or least developed country.

“Tagesschau” says that Palghar (India) currently has a food problem and thus can’t provide all citizens with enough food. They say that since the beginning of this year 250 children – i.e. not counting adolescents or adults – have starved. However instead of helping them, the Indian government simply ignores these statistics. They could help as India has enough money, but it is believed they simply fear that in the long run supporting a poor region could affect the finances of this country in a negative way.

Only somewhat related to this feline and its environment: “Tagesschau” says that today India is going to sign the “Paris Agreement” of 2015. Despite this they still stick to the plan to increase their production of coal. Photos shown by “Tagesschau” however prove not only that even without these plans adult workers and child-laborers alike are exposed by this branch to dangers and health hazards, “Tagesschau” doesn’t only prove that these workers are exploited by this industrial branch and never – no matter how hard they work – receive more than about 3 dollars, but “Tagesschau” also says that the production of coal is no good for India’s nature.
