LGVN - Looking-Glass and VeggieGlobal site news
presents happenings around the Looking-Glass solar system
VeggieGlobal and Looking-Glass Lost and Found Animal Network (LaFAN
- pronounced La - fan) is designed to provide a straightforward
interconnecting platform between all animal rescue organisations,
who themselves provide a "lost and found" page on their local website.
If you have lost an animal or found one, all you need to do is check
the Network List and click on the link to the lost and found page
of the rescue organisation nearest to your location and establish
contact with them. The participating organisations should have a
link-back to LaFAN so you can continue your search for an alternative
rescue location if necessary. However many animal rescue places
or on-line registers have not yet joined the network, which we feel
is a serious shame. The very few who have actually joined the network
reunited two dogs with their owners within just a few weeks of linking
in with LaFAN ... so we know the system works perfectly. Please
tell your local animal rescue centre to participate in this important
and VeggieGlobal Greek Stray Animal Story
In 2004 LGVN published a major news article about the stray animal
situation in Greece. The story coincided with the Olympic Games
and examines in detail the general contention and slander surrounding
animal welfare mismanagement inside Greece. In three parts, this
popular article goes on to examine backgrounds of Greece and other
countries cited as cruel to animals and discovers how history and
"cultural logic" determine the different relationships that nations
of opposites have towards their animals.
and VeggieGlobal Columnists
In 2003 the sites were delighted to introduce three new contributors,
Heather Chase, Annette Crosbie and Kim Cooling. All have contributed
greatly to the world of animal compassion and their regular columns
here through the Looking-Glass are a welcome addition to this important
Ban The Bang!
Some time back Looking-Glass launched a major campaign to stop the
public use of fireworks. Wildlife is being literally frightened
to death and our popular campaign to ban the public sale of loud
fireworks is here online waiting for more of your votes. Please
send in your experiences of wildlife suffering from fireworks and
vote in our poll. This campaign has contributed to the UK government's
new changes ... but the proposals simply do not go far enough. In
fact we believe they will cause more problems than cure the current
ones. Ban the Bang! has already received thousands of votes but
thousands more are needed ... and also to spread our campaign globally
for all countries to participate in. www.looking-glass.co.uk/banthebang
or not to "V", that is the confusion
VeggieGlobal.com, the major vegetarian site at Looking-Glass
has launched a long term investigation and campaign on food product
labeling for vegetarians - on a global scale. We will be unearthing
facts on additives and disclosing misinformation about veggie labeling
as well as looking into the lack of food product information for
vegetarians around different countries of the world.
If you have any stories, thoughts or comments that might contribute
to this investigation we would like to hear from you. Please go
to the campaigns page and add your comments to the voting form.
