Waiting for Spring…

Standard

I´m so fed up with this cold, wet and dark weather. I can´t wait to see the sun again and nature coming back to life. I WANT SPRING!!!

I found this absolut beautiful wall hanging on Lucys Blog (Attic24). She named it: Happy Flower Decoration.

When I saw it this morning I decided to make one to attract Spring. So maybe it will come sooner ;o)

This is my version and I call it: WAITING FOR SPRING

 

Petition to the Brazilian government to stop the construction of the Belo Monte Monster Damn

Standard

Dear Friends,

I just signed a petition to the Brazilian government to stop the construction of the Belo Monte Monster Dam complex in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon. If built, it will be the third largest dam in the world. It will flood 668 km2 of Amazon rainforest, causing irreversible harm, including the displacement of more than 20,000 people who stand to lose everything – their homes, their livelihood, and the river that sustains them. Additionally, the dam will exacerbate global climate change.

Join me and sign the petition to stop the Belo Monte Monster Dam and help defend the rainforest and its people!

The Brazilian government has an opportunity to demonstrate global leadership in protecting the Amazon, its people and the global climate instead of continuing on a path of dirty and destructive development. Please join me in the battle to stop the Belo Monte Monster Dam and defend a real Pandora on Earth.

Add your voice and sign the petition!

Thank You!

Chief Raoni crying when he learned that the President of Brazil approved the Belo Monte dam project on the Xingu indigenous lands. Belo Monte will be bigger than the Panama Canal, flooding acres of rainforest & indigenous lands. 20,000 indigenous and local people will be forced off their native lands (as well as millions of unknown species & plants) In the name of “progress”.
