    Facebook and Cambridge Analytica

    Facebook hasn’t changed a thing since the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Its representatives keep regurgitating the same story that data leaks were ‘unfortunate’ and it’s someone else’s fault, and that Facebook hasn’t breached any laws... Excuses, excuses! Their whole business is based on what they know about their users and it’s that knowledge that they make money from. There won’t be any transparency for online electoral campaigning. We must stop feeding this toxic business: I urge all political parties to refrain from using targeted advertising in electoral campaigning.

    Animal welfare and AMR vote

    For so long now, chickens have been in dire need for more protection. Yet, the European Commission hasn’t done a thing. Tens of thousands of chickens are still being locked up in bare barns and will most likely never see daylight. Within a lifespan of less than six weeks, tiny little broilers are being plumped into chickens weighing 2 kilos! The EU really must prohibit both rearing and importing these inflated ‘pop chickens’!
