Websites of Interest

from a property rights researcher's standpoint!

To learn the truth about Resource Providers, also known as Farmers, [Commercial] Fishermen, Loggers, Miners, Ranchers, and Recreationists, and their proven track record -- as well as government information and 'skewed science,' please visit the following websites. 

Websites of Interest is grouped into three lists: The good, the government and the questionable. Website addresses are not guaranteed to work, knowing the constantly changing world of the Internet and URLs.

Each list is in alphabetical order, not in order of personal preference. 

There are over 700 websites listed. Newest listings are marked with:

An excerpt: "I come bearing news of amazing progress. Only 18-months into a 30-year project and Florida has: Already acquired 75 percent of the land needed to build the authorized projects. Already secured funding to fully pay our half of the multi-billion dollar bill for the first decade. Already entered into a legally binding agreement that requires Florida to reserve water for the environment before federal dollars are released for projects. Already adopted a dispute resolution plan to make sure problems are resolved quickly so progress is not interrupted."

http://www.animalliberation.net/doa/ Animal Liberation Front "Diary Of Actions" Quote from site: "Every single night, the women and men of the Animal Liberation Front carry out direct action to stop animal cruelty at its sources, somewhere in the world. England and the United States see thousands of attacks a year and A.L.F. cells are active across the industrialized world. Whether it's the Black Ravens in Russia, the Wild Minks in Sweden, Animal Rescue in Japan, or the A.L.F. in New Zealand, Canada, Israel, Poland, Italy, Slovakia, etc., the goal is the same: to liberate the suffering and destroy the property of those who kill for profit. We need action reports from everywhere but especially European Countries. If you hear of any action (old or new) in your country, why not write us a note and give us any details you can? Don't assume that we will hear about it from someone else. Countries presently targets for direct actions: AOTEAROA AUSTRALIA AUSTRIA BELGIUM BRAZIL CANADA DENMARK FINLAND FRANCE GERMANY GREECE IRELAND ITALY JAPAN NETHERLANDS NORWAY POLAND SLOVAKIA SPAIN SOUTH AFRICA SWEDEN SWITZERLAND UNITED KINGDOM USA"

For general questions, feedback and requests: infosite-mail@usa.net Reporting Actions, Information Sources and Verification: Reporting Actions: Our archive represents only a fraction of the actual actions, as most go unreported. Please let us know if you have heard of any action not listed here. We need action reports from everywhere but especially European Countries. If you hear of any action (old or new) in your country, why not write us a note and give us any details you can? Don't assume that we will hear about it from someone else. When sending communiques, send multiple copies to one (or preferably several) of the supporters groups listed in the support section in order to make sure at least one gets delivered. Assume that ALL mail to any supporters group (or other animal rights group) is opened, read, copied, and fingerprinted by law enforcement agencies. Make sure you send letters SECURELY! If sending email read up on Internet & Computer Security. Be careful to NOT have anything on or in it that will incriminate you or others. Information Sources & Verification: Sources of information are extensive and include; A.L.F. supporters groups, A.L.F. press offices, animal rights group newsletters, and mainstream news sources - newspapers, magazines, television, web sites, wire services, etc. Our Diary of Action lists are never complete. There are thousands of actions every year around the world and we only hear about a fraction of them. All actions are verified to the best of our capabilities.

http://www.animalliberation.net/library/2001DirectActions.pdf 2001 Year-End Direct Action Report Released by A.L.F. Press Office Jan. 16, 2002 – The North American A.L.F. Press Office has just released its Year-End Report for 2001. The 46-page report contains the complete lists of all known illegal direct actions taken for animal liberation, as well as for earth liberation, and those taken against genetically modified organisms (GMO) research and genetic engineering (GE) in the past year. The Report includes a complete statistical and geographical breakdown of last year's direct actions, an analysis of target categories and major actions, as well as comments on the future of illegal direct action post-Sept., and into 2002. A hard copy can be purchased for $10 from the A.L.F. Press Office at the address below. The following information represents some of the totals for the year of 2001 from actions taken on the frontlines for animal liberation. Please remember that this list is far from complete; it simply represents the actions known by the ALF Press Office. Numerous actions, especially those where only minor property destruction occurred, typically are never reported nor claimed by anyone. There was a total of 137 illegal direct actions in North America in 2001; 72 of those were for animal liberation, 51 for earth liberation, and 14 against GMO/GE. The A.L.F. took credit for 35 of those actions, the E.L.F. took credit for 29, and 3 were jointly claimed by both groups. The following targets were hit by animal liberation activists in 2001: 10 fur stores 8 Stephens Inc. targets 7 Bank of New York offices or facilities 5 research labs 2 Bank of America offices or facilities 4 animal breeders 4 meat stores 3 fur farms 3 McDonalds 3 Dairy Queen 3 Burger King 3 factory farms 2 HLS targets 2 Pizza Hut 1 KFC 1 Wendy's 1 hunting store 1 pet store 1 wild horse facility 1 circus animal train Damaged property: approx. 150 windows or glass doors approx. 11 vehicles and 1 yacht 4 fires were set Animals rescued or released: 3000 mink 1047 ducks and ducklings 469 chickens 200 horses 62 pigeons 50 geese 44 beagles 28 rabbits 12 perch 10 ferrets 2 hermit crabs 1 snail North American Animal Liberation Front Press Office ***The Voice of the A.L.F.*** Spokesperson: David Barbarash Email: naalfpo@tao.ca 250-897-0791 24-Hour Fax Line: 419-858-9065 Mailing Address: P.O.

http://www.fntg.org/index.php Funders Network on Trade and Globalization (FNTG) The mission of the Funders Network on Trade and Globalization is to support foundations and other members of the funding community in their efforts to promote global relations, policies and institutions that foster environmentally sustainable, human-centered and just economic development in the US and around the world. FNTG emerged out of a series of briefings organized by the Environmental Grantmakers Association and the Consultative Group on Biodiversity in Seattle during the 3rd Ministerial Meetings of the World Trade Organization towards the end of 1999. Over 40 funders attended these briefings and civil society-led events during those dramatic days, and a decision was made soon after to launch a new network devoted to trade and broader globalization issues. FNTG is for grantmakers who care about human rights, democracy, peace, social justice, and environmental sustainability. The starting point for FNTG is that globalization matters to these issues. While each of our perspectives on globalization may differ, as grantmakers, we share a common commitment to a more just and sustainable society. As a consequence, globalization and its impacts-good and bad-matter to all of us. Globalization, a central phenomenon of our time, deserves our attention. FNTG has emerged out of concerns that the full implications of globalization are neither sufficiently understood nor adequately addressed by foundations and other members of the funding community. The network's goals are to: 1. Raise awareness of the relevance of international trade and other globalization issues to the funding community; 2. Identify information needs of funders, focus on emerging global issues and promote potential funding opportunities and alliances in ways that help increase the strategic impact of grantmaking; and 3. Increase financial resources devoted to environmentally sustainable, human-centered and just economic development worldwide.

http://www.greencrossinternational.net/GreenCrossPrograms/waterres/waterresource.html "Water Conflict Prevention" In their own words lies the intent: Green Cross works to prevent conflicts in water-stressed regions. We promote informed and participatory decision-making, regional cooperation and the integrated management of land and water resources at the basin level. Green Cross contributes to the prevention and resolution of actual and potential conflicts by convening people representing all sectors of affected communities to shape solutions together. We aim to actively avoid and mitigate conflicts in water-stressed regions by encouraging the participatory integrated management of basins at the local, national and international levels. Green Cross promotes the need for international mediation to prevent and resolve water related conflicts, the need for an international fund for water, to be used particularly in times of emergency, and the recognition that a basic entitlement to safe water is a universal human right. Current activities include our integrated Water Emergency Plan for the Middle East, the Fight Against Desertification in Burkina Faso and Cote d'Ivoire, a drinking water project in Swaziland, mediation between communities effected by large dams in Argentina and Paraguay, and active involvement in the World Water Council, Global Water Partnership and Gender and Water Alliance. Green Cross International was a major contributor to the World Water Vision for the 21st Century and 2nd World Water Forum in the Hague in March 2000, and is active and committed to the continuing "Framework for Action" process. Regional projects are already being developed in West and Southern Africa, South America and Eastern Europe.

http://www.publiclandsranching.org Yet ANOTHER Andy Kerr website: Welcome to the website for the National Public Lands Grazing Campaign, a multi-year, multi-organization strategy to end abusive livestock grazing on the nation's public lands. Public lands livestock grazing is ecologically damaging, economically irrational, and fiscally imprudent. Conservationists and public lands grazing permittees/lessees could argue forever on these issues and never reach consensus. Or we could work together to lobby Congress to establish a voluntary federal grazing permit buyout program. NPLGC advocates legislation to pay grazing permittees/lessees $175 per animal unit month to voluntarily retire their permit or lease and end grazing on the associated allotment permanently. This legislation would provide grazing permittees/lessees with another option for their permit or lease, while relieving public lands from continued livestock grazing wherever the buyout option is exercised.

http://www.waterandgenderalliance.org Gender and Water Alliance (no kidding!) In their own words: Everybody, men, women and children must help manage and share water fairly. Conflicts over "troubled water" -- sometimes too much, too little or too polluted -- must be avoided. They harm people, food production, nature and the environment. Research and practical experience from the Gender and Water Alliance (GWA) have demonstrated that effective, efficient and equitable water resources management is only achieved when both women and men are involved in integrated water resource management.

Language in the bill fails to address restoration of fire-dependent ecosystems. (Say what???)
