Palestinian intellectuals demand ‘unity’ in actions, not words

Resistance might mean different things to different people. But Resistance, in its many forms, is taking place all over Palestine.

Over recent years, two television programs have dominated Palestinian TV during Ramadan. The Syrian drama series ‘Bab al-Hara’ (‘Gate of the Neighbourhood’) takes centre stage in households across the country after the iftar meal, with its tales of Syrian life under French imperial rule.

nedhamson’s Comment on H.R. 5058: To amend the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros … – POPVOX.com

OpposeH.R. 5058: To amend the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act to provide for State and tribal management and protection of wild free-roaming horses and burros, and for other purposes.

Dear Rep. Brad Wenstrup:

I oppose The Wild Horse Oversight Act because… it would allow some states to cull herds and sell to slaughter houses to ship burro and horse meat to China and elsewhere. Both animals were introduced here from elsewhere but are now part and parcel of our nation culture – not to be treated as state by state issue.

Text of H.R. 5058: Wild Horse Oversight Act (Introduced version) – GovTrack.us

Except as provided by subsection (b), at the request of the legislature or Governor of a State or the governing body of a federally recognized Indian tribe, the Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of Agriculture shall allow the State or federally recognized Indian tribe to assume all management and protection functions under this Act regarding wild free-roaming horses and burros on land within the boundaries of the State or federally recognized Indian tribe. After a State or federally recognized Indian tribe assumes such functions, wild free-roaming horses and burros shall be managed by the State or federally recognized Indian tribe in accordance with this Act and in the same manner as any other non-federally regulated species regarding functions not specified in this Act.

 

Will this endanger wild horses and burros if states and reservations take over management and protection? My assumption is that it would – bot horse folks will know better.

 

Introduced by three Republicans
