The following new items are priority as of May 2008 and I would urge you to read the wise and compassionate words of El-Branden Brazilwho is a wonderful person and extremely gifted photographer - a man that I am honoured to know.

Dear friends,

As you all know, I am very passionate about Burma, and have just returned from my fourth trip there, last month. What a difference one month can make.

Many of you wish to give donations to help those in need of aid. However, it is clear that international organisations, including the UN, are having difficulties, due to the belligerence of the dreadful military government. This link may be of some use for those wishing to bypass the regime.

If this doesn't work for you then you can cut and paste this link

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/burma_cyclone/6.php?cl=86396597

By going through this site, you donate money directly to the monks in Burma.

Giving to the monks is a smart, fast way to get aid directly to Burma's people. Governments and international aid organizations are important, but face challenges--they may not be allowed into Burma, or they may be forced to provide aid according to the military government's rules. And most will have to spend large amounts of money just setting up operations in the country. The monks are already on the front lines of the aid effort--housing, feeding, and supporting the victims of the cyclone since the day it struck. The International Burmese Monks Organization will send money directly to each monastery through their own networks, bypassing regime controls.

Please spread the word and feel free to use the attached banners on your websites, in your e-mails and so on. BURMA MUST NOT BE FORGOTTEN!

Bright blessings,

El-Branden Brazil

Here is a similarly caring message from David Green, another mystic traveller

We cannot hope to change the genocidal Chinese government, but at least we can register our empathy and compassion for those they torture and kill in Tibet.

This is for the Tibetan people whose way of life and faith is threatened. The music is wonderful, and there is no petition presented, it is just
signatures creating a wave of appreciation, love and support for them,
across the world. Please share and pass it on.

And another update from Jean Bird, a woman who is truly an inspiration and who, along with an equally admirable woman called Jelena, has set up the following charity for Serbian dogs in distress and deep need...

www.harboroughonline.co.uk/serbiananimals

Here is a little about what Jean has to say about this charity which she has helped to set up:

Serbia is war torn, poor and has a dreadful attitude to animals. Dogs are despised and feared and treated as vermin! But dear brave Jelena has dedicated her life to saving them, and my small charity is really making a difference. I am in communication with Jelena who runs the shelter every day, she speaks perfect English so we have no problems understanding each other! I know what is happening at the shelter on a daily basis, the dogs that have been dumped, the ones that have been poisoned and the kittens that are left in boxes. It inspires and motivates me to do as much as I can to raise funds and awareness. Since I became involved almost 2 years ago we have made a real difference with nearly 100 dogs neutered, enclosures and insulated doghouses built (the dogs are all outside and the weather is very cold in winter in Serbia). Also money is sent for food which is always desperately needed and of course there are the veterinary costs.

Here are some images from Jean Bird which, although distressing, are essential viewing to open our eyes to the separation from Source that we are facing as a species.

As individuals we know that we have the power to turn the tide in our own unique ways. Don't close your eyes, please.

And please see Poppy's News page for an idea of how to contribute to this marvellous charity and get a tattoo design drawn up at the same time...

However, in order to encourage people to support the worthwhile causes that are linked to here it is pertinent to display some of the horrors that Poppy stands against. She hopes that you will choose to do so too. Please visit these links and stand against cruelty, greed and destruction.

BARRY HORNE

www.barryhorne.org

This site is dedicated to the memory of Barry Horne, an animal liberation activist who died in a UK prison hospital on November 5 2001. He had been sentenced to 18 years in prison for various criminal damage and arson attacks mainly against companies involved in vivisection.

In prison he went on hunger strike several times in protest against government support for the vivisection industry, and their broken pre-election promises about animal experiments. The third of these hunger strikes lasted 68 days, and Barry never fully recovered.

His actions generated worldwide publicity, and initiated a huge upsurge in animal liberation activity, the effects of which are still being felt even today.

This site will include details of Barry's life and achievements as an animal liberation activist as well as his imprisonment and subsequent hunger strike protests. If you have any contributions to make, please contact us at info@barryhorne.org

We will also mark the anniversary of Barry's death on November 5th each year. Recently the third anniversary of his death was marked by actions all over the world, which will be listed here, meanwhile please visit http://www.directaction.info
