5) One billion animals are killed every year for leather products.Leather is not a “byproduct” of the meat industry. It is a coproduct. The meat industry makes a lot of money selling the skins of dead animals.
4) Leather is dead skin. Literally. Ripping someone’s skin off and wearing it are the kinds of things that horror movies are made of. Don’t be a creep.  
3) It’s bad for the environment. The carcinogenic chemicals used to tan leather pollute the environment—endangering animals and humans.
2) You could be wearing a dog.Undercover investigators have provided PETA with horrifying photographs of dogs in Thailand as they were being slaughtered so that their skins could be tanned for leather.
1) Animals don’t want to be skinned alive.Duh. Just like you wouldn’t want to be beaten, have chili peppers or tobacco rubbed into your eyes in order to force you to walk to your death, and have your throat slit before being skinned, just to be made into a product that no one needs—right?

This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don’t get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can’t do anything, don’t get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it’s ready to come undone. You have to figure it’s going to be a long process and that you’ll work on things slowly, one at a time.

phil-irish-artist:

By copyrighting his property as an artwork, he has prevented oil companies from drilling on it.

Peter Von Tiesenhausen has developed artworks all over his property in northern Alberta.  There’s a boat woven from sticks that is gradually being reclaimed by the land; there is a fence that he adds to each year of his life, and there are many “watching” trees, with eyes scored into their bark.

Oil interests pester him continually about drilling on his land.  His repeated rebuffing of their advances lead them to move toward arbitration.  They made it very clear that he only owned the top 6 inches of soil, and they had rights to anything underneath.  He then, off the top of his head, threatened them that he would sue damages if they disturbed his 6 inches, for the entire property is an artwork.  Any disturbance would compromise the work, and he would sue.

Immediately after that meeting, he called a lawyer (who is also an art collector) and asked if his intuitive threat would actually hold legally.  The lawyer visited, saw the scope of the work on the property, and wrote a document protecting the artwork.

The oil companies have kept their distance ever since.

This is but one example of Peter’s ability to negotiate quickly on his feet, and to find solutions that defy expectations.
