Ako Mismo Advocacy AKO MISMO is about YOU! Making a stand and taking real action for the causes you believe in. Causes that you yourself can truly pursue to make a real, positive difference to your fellow countryman, to your country. It is for you who still dare to hope that life for millions doesnt have to be a hopeless battle against problems like poverty, illiteracy, unemployment. It is for you who believe that not enough is being done about our countrys problems. And that to do right things, youll do them yourself. It is a movement where you can show your patriotism and compassion, and make these traits infectious. Its about action that eradicates hopelessness in every Filipino. How hard will this be to accomplish? Well that will be entirely up to you. In AKO MISMO you get to choose the cause you wish to pursue. No cause is too small as long as it is a noble one. All we ask is that you make a pledge to do it. You yourself can pledge anything: from teaching English to your yayas kid, to making sure that your barangay is dengue-free. Or make a pledge to do your part in ending corruption, prostitution, illegal drugs or the inhumane treatment of animals. The choice is yours. No matter how small, as long as you pledge that you yourself will take action, its sure to make a big difference. Giving more hope for Filipinos to stop merely surviving, and start living. And it starts with you. --Starmometer

The importance of vegan advocacy. Please read: At 8:38 when I say I have no moral obligation to "you" I what I mean is that my moral obligation in regards to standing up for the rights of non human animals is more important than whatever you might think of me for criticizing your animal product consumption. That doesn't mean I will disrespect you or attack you. Just clearing that up :) "If change doesn't happen over night, it doesn't mean it's not already in process. Change will never happen if we give up before we start." - Vincent J. Guihan Please visit:

Multiple Sclerosis: CCSVI and the LIberation procedure; Advocacy for Paolo Zamboni URGENT: IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU LOVE SUFFERS FROM MS, IT IS IMPORTANT TO RESEARCH AND INFORM OTHERS OF THE LIBERATION PROCEDURE AND A DISEASE CALLED CHRONIC CEREBROSPINAL VENOUS INSUFFICIENCY. THIS DISEASE SHOWS STRONG EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE TO CAUSE THE DESTRUCTIVE DISEASE KNOWN AS MS. THE MS COMMUNITY MUST GET THE WORD OUT VIA YOUTUBE, FACEBOOK. MYSPACE, GOOGLE, BLOGSPOT, SKYPE WHATEVER FORM OF MULTIMEDIA NETWORKING POSSIBLE. IF THE MASSES ARE MADE AWARE OF THIS CONDITION AND TREATMENT I BELIEVE MS CAN BE STOPPED. ALTHOUGH PERMANENT DAMAGE CANNOT BE REVERSED AT THIS TIME, MANY PEOPLE CAN BE SPARED A LIFE OF DISABLITY AND MANY OTHERS CAN BE GIVEN BACK FUNCTIONS THAT THEY THOUGHT MAY BE GONE FOREVER. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ANY MS SUFFERER CAN DO TOWARD ENDING THIS DARK AND HORRIBLE DISEASE. I find myself thinking of a line from Muse's wonderful song "Apocalypse, Please"- DECLARE THIS AN EMERGENCY. LET'S SPREAD A SENSE OF URGENCY AND PULL US THROUGH LOVE, MARK

Problems with 'our' ME (and CFIDS, ME/CFS) advocacy groups Unfortunately, while many advocacy groups started out doing excellent work to improve things for ME sufferers, today this is no longer true in most cases. So many of these groups which started out determined to fight against the 'fatigue' and 'CFS' psychobabble, and all the other financially and politically motivated propaganda, and now actively SUPPORTING it. It is very common to read information produced or supported by these groups which does not contain even a SINGLE facts about ME, or about anything else. (At best, information on ME is mixed in randomly with information on 'CFS' as if they were one and the same). There are a small number of groups doing some good and worthwhile work for their members. Within that group there are a very small number of groups which really are virtually propaganda free and which do very clearly make the full and proper distinction between ME and CFS. Then there are the worst of the worst, the groups which support all of the worst psychobabble including graded exercise therapy (the most harmful 'treatment' for genuine ME there is, and the reason many with ME are so severely affected in the first place, or have DIED from ME). (These groups are the 'wolves in sheep's clothing'). This includes groups such as: AfME in the UK, the ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Society of Victoria in Australia, and the CFIDS Association of America (CAA), among others. But the largest number of groups are somewhere in the middle. (These groups are the 'sheep ...

Nathan Winograd - Director of the No Kill Advocacy Center Watch Nathan Winograd's appearance on Rescue Roundtable. We are a nation of animal lovers. But the shelters we expect to provide dogs and cats a second chance are instead killing five million of them. And for far too long, we have been told that the killing is exclusively the public's fault. That shelters --through no fault of their own--are merely performing the public's dirty work--with skill, compassion, and dedication. Nothing could be further from the truth. Please visit
