2. The situation in Peru is escalating. Over the weekend, police conducted a violent and deadly raid, opening fire on peaceful indigenous Awajun and Wambis protesters, killing 25 and injuring more than 150.
International oil, logging and mining companies have been handed over the rights to even more of Peru’s Amazon by President Garcia – killing, displacing, and destroying indigenous communities. At this moment, over 50,000 local Peruvians are conducting peaceful protests to defend their rights and the environment, but they are under siege.
In Hollywood, actors Q’orianka Kilcher, Alex Meraz, Colin Farrell, Clifton Collins Jr, Jesse Garcia (Quinceañera), Woody Harrelson, and Esai Morales are protesting in solidarity. Please SIGN THE PETITION.
3. Where thoroughbreds go to retire – the other dark-side of horse-racing. While millions of viewers watch this year’s Belmont Stakes, former champions like Charismatic and War Emblem are half a world away in Japan. Thousands of other less famous U.S.-bred thoroughbreds have also been exported overseas for breeding and racing. When they are no longer useful, most of these horses will be slaughtered. PETA undercover investigators have recorded exclusive footage in a Japanese horse slaughterhouse.
