Be the Change You Want to See !!! Please SIGN for this cause.
The Government of Sint Maarten – the island where i was born and raised – condones cockfighting.. claiming that it is part of our ‘culture’ . I don’t know what culture they grew up with but this is NOT part of mine. It is an act of cruelty, selfishness and SHOULD NOT BE CONDONED, CONTINUED OR CONSIDERED PART OF ANY CULTURE !!!!
They HAVE the power to stop this …yet they consider it something which is ‘okay’ . .. We are well aware that if a human being can condone an act of cruelty on an animal…. a being with NO VOICE.. then we can also be aware of what THAT human being is capable of doing to his fellow man. I URGE you to think about this. and help us stop this moronic nonsense !!!!
I have over 9000 fans (on my facebook fanpage) I’ve quite a large network.. not to brag but to prove a point..that if people are listening.. we can speak up and be heard… nomatter how impossible the goal.
….. i do not believe in having a fanbase/network if i cannot do something to make a change in this already messed up world we live in. I want to be the change i want to see… i need YOU to help me.
I urge you.. to take a minute or two.. and PLEASE .. sign the petition.
” Cockfighters hack off the roosters’ wattles and combs (the flesh at the top of their heads and under their beaks) before a fight in order to prevent other roosters from doing the mutilating themselves. The birds’ natural spurs (the bony protrusions on their legs) are cut off so that cockfighters can strap on razor-sharp 2-inch steel blades, which are capable of puncturing lungs and gouging eyes. The birds are partly plucked, oiled and injected with a special mixture to harden the skin and to make them aggressive. Two birds are then placed in an enclosure where they fight to the death. The dead losers are dumped together with the severly-injured winners, also left to die.
Cock fighting is all about gambling. Huge sums of money change hands amongst the supporters of this blood sport. Spectators crowd around the ring to shout and encourage their chosen bird to kill its opponent. The bloodier the better.”
