WHAT THE FUCK?

Please sign and crosspost to everyone you know. Not just rescuers. Send to friends and family, too.

This is a very serious matter…

In 2007, the ‘artist’ Guillermo Vargas Habacuc, took a dog from the street, tied him to a rope in an art gallery, and starved him to death.

For several days, the ‘artist’ and the visitors of the exhibition have watched emotionless the shameful ‘masterpiece’ based on the dog’s agony, until eventually he died.

Does it look like art to you?

But this is not all… the prestigious Visual Arts Biennial of the Central American decided that the ‘installation’ was actually art, so that Guillermo Vargas Habacuc has been invited to repeat his cruel action for the biennial of 2008.

PLEASE HELP STOP HIM.

http://www.petitiononline.com/ea6gk/petition.html <http://www.petitiononline.com/ea6gk/petition.html>

Please read to the end of this….He has been INVITED to do this again THIS year.

Note: He paid five local children to help him catch the terrified stray dog…in the impoverished area. The dog had no way to escape capture or his fate once he was in the hands of this cruel maniac.

Besides signing the petition, please also write or e-mail the gallery that will host the 2008 exhibition to ask them to prohibit him. We can also write to other galleries that carry his other works and ask them to boycott him. Here’s some addresses:

(1) EXHIBITION IS
TAKING PLACE AT:

info@madc.ac.cr

Centro Nacional de la Cultura
Antigua Fábrica Nacional de Licores.
Avenida 3, calle 15/17. San José, Costa Rica.
Teléfono: (506) 257 7202 / 257 9370
Fax: (506) 257 8702

(2) ANOTHER GALLERY SHOWING HIS WORK:
This is the email address to a gallery which currently holds some of
Vargas’ work for display and sale. If anyone would like to ask the gallery to
drop him from their list of artists the email address is below.
Email address: info@jacobkarpio-galeria.com

ALSO: The Animal Legal Defense Fund. suggests:

At this point, we feel the most effective method of protest is to write local animal protection agencies demanding they put a stop to this exhibit. You can search for agencies here in the Latin America/Caribbean section http://worldanimalnet.org/new.asp?co=&geo=SA&prov=&cat=are <http://worldanimalnet.org/new.asp?co=&geo=SA&prov=&cat=are> .

Comment Fom Andy T (manager of metro cabs)

Dear Supergirl & All other DRIVERS ?
Please do the sums before you make comment, we simply cannot compete with delta regarding advertising, we can card once a year which we do but then the first wet weekend and all the new work is lost. As for your comment that no one has heard of METRO do you live in Yorkshire ? If it rains in the morning here we cannot cover the work its only people who can’t get through to delta but they must know the number, as regards the work on a night, take a look in the pubs & clubs sorry pubs we’ve got no clubs there are 18 pubs for sale in crosby & waterloo how can we create work that is’nt there. I have spoken to many people who have been in this trade for many years and we all agree that the hackney trade can’not survive in its present form and the way its organised,we need the newer members of the trade to start putting there future first, get rid of the rip offs,cherry pickers & liars, start to look after the punter be polite get out your cab and help.Finaly to apply for any sort of rise at this time of year is just foolish,yes fuel costs has risen but they have risen for every one.

Andy Taylor has worked in and around the the taxi trade for a great number of years so he knows what he’s talking about,so get the rise out of your heads,he was a bit harsh on Supergirl and her views are always welcome seeing as she see’s the money coming in or the lack of it?and i do apreciate comments coming from the taxi taxi trade and wish we hade more of them,i’m going to ask Luke,Trev and anyone esle to state their views on the present situation.



Is This True?

I’ve heard that Southport have put in for option 3: 20p on the clock and 20p a mile if this is true then that’s my job finished,we cant compete with delta’s stupid low rates,i was hoping that we could hold out this year maybe next year as well and force them to have a rise first.Drivers are telling me now that this is a long collar job,i don’t want to work more hours for the same money,why should i? I do enough hours as it is never mind more,i don’t want to earn mega bucks (would be good though) i just want to earn a living without doing stupid hours.

P.S. This has pissed me off big time,we used to have a laugh on this bog and at work the comedy factor is well gone now our livelihood’s at stake?



Rise Results

Option 1: 20 pence on clock ………………..wow fucking wee………………….so now the public know we start off at 1.80……………….doesn’t matter that’s all it is…………they still think were too deer………………if we lose 1 passenger a night that’s the stupid 20p rise gone….unfucking believable……….a stupid 20p rise…is going to lose us work…………i was hoping on no rise………..i know fuel price’s have shot up but should that be passed on to the punter?………..why should we put in for a rise then wait for the private hire to follow…..why cant we hold out and let them put in for a rise first?…………why when we want a rise cant we call a meeting like we have done for the last 15 years…..it seams like we have no say in the matter anymore…….its above us…….lets all start our associations…… e.g.sefton non radio association….get my drift?



The Rise (again)

This went ahead behind the night men’s knowledge,Mike Melling took it upon himself that HE and probably DAYMEN wanted a rise,not giving a shit about nightmen,he gave out ballot papers Tuesday and wanted them back by noon Wednesday,in my opinion this was done behind the nightmen’s back,knowing there’d be few out Tuesday,when i asked why i wasn’t asked my point of view i was told everyone knew about it and their was ballot papers in the office for anyone who wanted to vote,but Phil (metros finest) knew nothing about it?and……..also…………………HE(Mike Melling)………………..ran out of ballot papers……………..WHAT THE  FUCK ?So he issued another 50(if that)…….So were still waiting for an outcome……….

I’d just like to ask,Who asked Mike Melling to represent us? i surely didn’t,did he take this upon himself and say i’m your new representative?…….if so cant we all apply for changes in our rates?and while i’m on the subject,if the rise goes through that these daymen wanted….will they all go home at 6pm and not take  any of our work….that’s in short supply  and can only get worse with a rise……………..

This job is on its arse,we are constantly losing work to the private hire who are a lot cheaper than us,they’ll be laughing their socks off when they hear were after a rise………………….
