To deal with a Trump administration, the tribal nation might now want to use that 200-year-old treaty right.
By Tristan Ahtone posted Jan 04, 2017
As President-elect Donald Trump prepares to occupy the Oval Office, much of Indian Country is bracing for the worst. But the U.S. Congress has an opportunity to welcome tribal nations to the table in a unique way: It can seat an Indian delegate.

For more than 200 years, the Cherokee Nation has held the right to send a nonvoting delegate to the House of Representatives, much like Puerto Rico or the District of Columbia. That right stems from treaties signed by the United States and the Cherokee Nation—treaties that are…

25th January is a crucial day for the animal welfare movement. Members of the European Parliament’s Agriculture Committee will be voting on a report that could pave the way for legislation to protect the welfare of Europe’s 320 million* farmed rabbits.
This vote is the best chance of securing new legislation for Europe’s farmed animals we have seen in over a decade, and we need to send a message loud and clear to the MEPs on the Committee to urge them to back the report and ensure Europe’s farmed rabbits are given the protection they need.
The vote in the Committee is vital, it is the first hurdle we have to overcome to get protection for rabbits in front of the full European Parliament for a vote in the spring. We’ll need your support ahead of that vote too, but for now, will you…

Terrified, alone , neglected and abused. Here the dogs souls are broken and they…

In the year 2004 Mark was running a group called ‘North Kent Animal Welfare (NKAW)’. At this time, NKAW submitted a memorandum to the House of Commons – the UK Government; regarding their views on the use of wild animals in UK circuses. Remember that even at this time (2004), around 85% of the British public were disgusted and opposed to the use of wild animals in circuses.
Here below is a copy of part of the submission to the British government that Mark made (under the name of NKAW) as a contribution to the Draft Animal Welfare Bill (for the United Kingdom) which was being constructed at the time. This is now a formal UK document / law which applies in the UK. Unfortunately, despite the massive call by the British public; and additional representations into formal government draft documentation such as the draft animal welfare…
