Please sign the petition against a Dairy Farm - 2010.

THE PETITION: To: Ian Fytche, Chief Executive of North Kesteven District Council and North Kesteven District Council Planning Committee

Please don't let plans for 'mega-dairies' go ahead in Lincolnshire. These farms would make a big contribution to climate change and undermine more responsible, sustainable cattle farms in Lincolnshire and the rest of the UK.
Keeping cows inside almost all year is cruel and there is evidence that cows kept in factory farms suffer as a result.
Please do all you can to stop these mega-dairy style farms being built in Lincolnshire.

ISKCON Fiji - Sri Radha Damodar Temple Opening 2010

“During the 2002 GBC meetings in Mayapur, India—just three days before he passed away—Tamal Krishna Maharaja asked me to go to Fiji and help his disciples,” says ISKCON Sigatoka project coordinator Vedavyasapriya Swami. “So I was traveling around Fiji with my Radha Shyamasundara deities, when I met Gurusmarna and Gitakirti in 2003.” The two devotees enthusiastically discussed Radha Krishna worship with Vedavyasapriya Swami. Soon after the meeting—as if by Lord Krishna’s arrangement—their godbrother Nandavraja Dasa, who was moving to New Zealand, entrusted his Radha-Damodara Deities to them. Charmed by Their Lordships, Gurusmarna and Gitakirti began to plan the construction of a temple for Them, in memory of their spiritual master Tamal Krishna Goswami.


“Keeping the approved design, I also made some external changes that would appeal to tourists, and familiarize them with Srila Prabhupada’s teachings and the practical application of Krishna consciousness in fields such as architecture, medicine, and culinary arts,” says Vedavyasapriya Swami. “I also planned to reach out to the poor and needy of Fiji, by providing free Prasadam—a service much appreciated by the Fijian Government.”
