New Zealand: Clean Up This Rape Nation.

To the government of New Zealand,   We are ashamed to say we live in this country. The way that the "Roast Busters" case has been handled has identified us (New Zealand) in the world as a rape nation. It is physically sickening to see the powers that be attempt to turn a blind eye to these massive issues, right in front of an outraged population. New Zealand wants action taken NOW, not only upon the group themselves, but the rape culture that lives, breathes and THRIVES in this country on a dail

How the image of models effect girls in New Zealand

Skirts and tops getting shorter, shoes getting higher. More and more girls going on diets. This is mostly the effect of being exposed to skinny skin revealing models. We see women on products, in stores and on posters (with the aspects that I have mentioned) and this what we see as teenagers as what we have to look like. This leads to young girls going on diets, taking pills and doing unnatural stuff to make them look "correct".

Petition for the inclusion of hammer throw in the Diamond League

The hammer throw is an event in athletics with great, more than hundred-year-old, Olympic tradition. In 2000 the women’s competition was incorporated into the Olympic Programme and since then has shown steady growth both in number of participants, and number of World Records. Nevertheless, this development is thwarted by the continual exclusion of the event from stadiums and the non-integration in the competition programme of the Diamond League. In order to keep up with the ever-growing particip

Stop transportation of donkeys from Bonaire to Haiti

The government of Bonaire wants to capture all 200 stray donkeys that roam the island and send them to Haiti to be used as working animals. I completely agree that the stray donkeys must be rescued from the streets. Donkey Sanctuary Bonaire has already been trying to get this done for many years.

Bitless or Not, It’s About Having the ChoiceI am not going to preach about why riders should go bit-less. Riding competitively is judged on the performance of the horse and rider, whatever discipline of competing you are taking part in. ‘Collection’ and ‘Control’ (etc) can just as easily be achieved without a bit! And riding without a bit should be a decision made by the rider – it’s Bit-less NOT Wit-less! Support the right of a rider to choose whether they ride in a bit or not.
