“Stop sending expired food”….”fried chicken 64.99” 
IQALUIT, Nunavut — A head of cabbage for $20. Fifteen bucks for a small bag of apples.
A case of ginger ale: $82.
Fed up and frustrated by sky-high food prices and concerned over widespread hunger in their communities, thousands of Inuit have spent weeks posting pictures and price tags from their local grocery stores to a Facebook site called Feed My Family.

Holy hell.


WHAT IN THE FUCK? This shit is not okay.


ughhslfkajsdlf gross gross gross
64.99?????


These people are starving for a reason.
Conservationists
have been starving
these people
to death for years.


Reblogging for the extra articles. 
Also… I might show up to this protest and support them. 


Pay attention to this stuff, please, followers who haven’t heard about this!  This kind of thing is completely erased in news media.


This is really fucking important.
This is why I don’t respect anyone who blindly supports the anti-sealing protestors. Because for a lot of people, it’s the only affordable option.
It’s not just Iqaluit. In Nain, Labrador this problem has been going on for ages and nobody does anything about it. $47 for a ham and $17 for a block of cheese. In Rigolet, Labrador, a loaf of bread costs $7. Here’s another picture of an Iqaluit food price changing before your very eyes.
The NNCP is starving people, reducing their food choices, and keeping people on EI poor. This is so, so wrong.

How can we help? I joined the group and checked out the website, but I didn’t see anything that can be actively done (other than raising awareness, which, of course, is great).

Excellent question! If you read through the group (which is here, for anyone who missed it), there are people talking about some ways to help.
Look at the latest news on the Feeding My Family website to see what the priorities are and how you might be able to help.
If you’re Canadian, call your local MP and ask to discuss this issue and express your concern.
Look up ways to support putting pressure onto airlines to charge fair rates (a $1000 plane ticket should be from one coast to the other, not a few hundred miles).
Research and learn what you can about food sustainability. For a start, how about learning square foot/metre (French intensive) gardening or container gardening and starting to practice it yourself? Share these techniques with friends and family. Get good at it so you can teach them to others who have poor food security in your own area.
For the love of God, stop signing “anti-sealing”/”anti-hunting” petitions and supporting Greenpeace’s actions without understanding the complicated, nuanced situation in the North.
Watch the FB group, because people there mention direct donations and ways to help the organizations actually on the ground there.
For example, one person is starting up a donation project/fundraiser.
Look at what organizations like FoodShare are doing and support them.
There is so much to be done. Sharing news articles and stories, lists of resources, donation and fundraising pages, and knowledge about food security is critical, but there’s a lot more work of all sorts.

Help Us Escape an Abusive Household →

fuck-no-greg-land:

tumblkage:

I’m too much of a wreck to make this wholly comprehensive right now, but if you follow me you’ll know that we were unable to find a place to live so we [my Mother and I] had to move in with my Grandmother [who has been letting my Aunt stay here for about 15 years???]
If you follow me you also know that my Aunt is a volatile, violent abuser who has attacked us our entire lives.
Well, about half an hour ago, she started yelling at me after I said that ‘You do realise I can hear you, right’ when she called me a ‘cunt’ as I left the room.
I told my Mother about this as I went back upstairs with the bagel I had been making for her and my Mother went downstairs to make her tea.
My Aunt proceeded to scream at my Mother and then physically attack her as evidenced by a little of the aftermath that I will link to in a gallery. For a short rundown: She shoved my Mother, grabbed her by her shoulders and scratched up her arms, and pulled out a small chunk of my Mother’s hair all while screaming.


My Grandmother refuses to deal with any of this, of course since to acknowledge it would be embarrassing and shameful to ‘the family’.


This is not a family, this is a toxic enviroment and I. Want. Us. Out.


Please donate whatever you can and/or share however you can with whomsoever you can. We need money for moving vans [remarkably expensive], 6 weeks deposit on a new place, first month’s utilities for the new place, and first month’s rent for the new place.

We need to leave.

—Things I can add on Tumblr include:

  • I’m queer. I’m very very queer. This is an Orthodox household. You do the math.
  • This is a very very Jewish Zionist household. My Mother and I are Anti-Zionist. You, again, do the math.

One of the runners of this blog (and the creator), Ava, is in a truly horrific position and needs help. If you can help or share this post that’d be beyond incredible of you.

PLEASE READ. I’m posting because I really need to get this out: 
I will be losing my living space in the very near future, and I could use some help finding resources as well as homes for the animals, temporary or permanent.

If anyone knows of housing resources and/or cheap housing in or around New Jersey please send me a message. Even if you know someone with a room where my partner and I could temporarily stay in, please consider having us. We could pay you a few hundred a month while trying to get our feet under us, and I would gladly cook and clean for the household. 
If you know anyone who is looking to move into an apartment and is in need of roommates, I found two fairly cheap and seemingly nice apartment complexes in Lindenwold. Between three or four people it would only come to 200-300 a month plus electric.

As for the re-homings, I either need to find responsible owners (i.e. someone who can afford decent food and veterinary care) for: a female cat, Luna (spayed, 9 yrs); a male cat, Lyle (not fixed, 3 yrs); and two kittens, male, Merlin, and female, Miri, who need to be rehomed together (neither fixed, approx 4 mo). If I cannot, I would hope someone could take them temporarily until I can find a permanent solution.
Concerning the unspayed three, there are programs in NJ for people who are receiving aid from the state to get their animals fixed, so we can get those done provided you can get my mother and the animal(s) those specific veterinary care. I will be able to provide the feeding bowls and litter boxes to the new families.

I do not have any family to turn to for help, nor do I have a large pool of acquaintances to reach out to, so if you could reblog this or help in any way I would beyond grateful.

HEY!!!!!!!!! THIS IS IMPORTANT!!!

My friend Elspeth is an EXCELLENT HUMAN BEING and things are really super shit right now and they could really, really use a hand. If any of you live in the NORTHEAST US NEAR NEW JERSEY, if any of you know anyone who may possibly live there and may possibly know someone who can help PLEASE reblog this! They’re not asking for money, they’re not asking for handouts, so if you’re gonna pass this post up because you think it’s someone asking for free shit you’re gonna want to reconsider. There are animals in need of loving (permanent or temporary) homes so if you’d pass this up for the human aspect at least think about those animals. 

Please, they are an A+ person who has been such an amazing friend to me, they’re incredibly honest and sweet and clean and responsible and they really really deserve a helping hand from the universe (or, you know, humanity) right now.

skunkandburningtires:

James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.

From the film’s IndieGo page:

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

I have to admit, I’m frustrated. Sales on the book continue to drop and there doesn’t seem to be much I can do to stop it. I’ve tried everything I can.

I got a big-name voice actor to do my trailer.

I got national news coverage.

People are losing their fire and forgetting about Ferguson. That’s exactly what the police want, though: for all of this to just go away and for people to forget about it.

Don’t let that happen.

Tina Fontaine, 15, was reported missing on Aug. 9. Her body was found in the Red River near the Alexander Docks at about 1:30 p.m., more than a week after she was reported missing. Fontaine, of Sagkeeng First Nation, had only been in Winnipeg for a month before her disappearance. “She’s a petite little thing — just turned 15, barely in the city for a little over a month,” O’Donovan said. “And she’s definitely been exploited and taken advantage of and murdered.” 
Fontaine was in the care of a Child and Family Services agency when she went missing, according to police. She had run away from her foster home before, including once in July of this year. Police said she was found wrapped in a bag, in “a condition she couldn’t have put herself in.”
“She’s a child. This is a child that has been murdered … Society should be horrified,” O’Donovan said. “That’s why we’re asking for people to come forward. And that’s why we’re asking for people to help us and to come forward with anything they know about this child.” Anyone with information can contact police at 204-986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-8477.
