With the US election just about run, the Yak is very disappointed that among all the debates and discussions around the big issues of economics, Iraq (Eye-rack), terrorism, and science, no-one among the elctorate brought argument for the little people. And by this I mean the opressed, the prisoners, the people who can't speak for themselves. Gitmo is one thing, but what about the Garden Gnomes?
For years they have been misunderstood, misrepresented, and often misplaced by drunken students. Finally, people are coming to the fore to stand up for the rights of others. That, after all, is what real democracy is - protecting the rights of minorities.
It is therefore imperative, that no matter where you find yourself, you stand up for the rights of these woodland creatures, and help put an end to the rampant slave trading occuring throughout the world.
For information on how you can become involved, the following sites could be relevant:Front de Libération des Nains de Jardin (FLNJ)
- The international originators of the movement, based in FranceMovimento Autonomo per la Liberazione delle Anime da Giardino (MALAG)
- AN Italian organisation. More fundamentalist than the others, believing that the gnome's spirits are held captive in porcelain sacofogi, which should be broken to free the spirit.Freethegnomes.com
- A very active American organisation aiming to prevent gnome slave trafficking in the states, and liberate existing captured Gnomes.
Help stop the oppression, slavery, and meaningless use of Gnomes as ornamentation without compensation or consent.
