    Decide dolphins in North Rhine-Westphalia elections? -Ask WDSF below we publish the results of opinions of the NRW-parties and politicians on the subject of animal protection on the occasion of the NRW Landtag election on May 9th, 2010, and the controversial Dolphinariums in Duisburg and Munster NRW parties were asked by the whale and dolphin protection forum (WDSF) opinion on the continued existence of the two Dolphinariums in Duisburg and Munster. Another request by April 13, 2010 took place directly on the animal welfare policy spokesman of the parties. The NRW-parties of CDU and FDP obtained so far no position to this letter. Thus arises following whale recommendation of the WDSF (justification s.a. schemes): CDU – do not choose – disqualified! FDP – choose non – disqualified! Not pick SPD – – disqualified! Bundnis90 / Die Grunen choose the left – – choose party human environment animal welfare (welfare party) – buer – select on the topic of animal welfare has also “Albert Schweitzer Foundation for our environment” asked the parties to North Rhine-Westphalia: Albert-schweitzer-stiftung.de /…You can see the responses of the parties represented in the Parliament at a glance welfare Landtag nrw 2010 here. WDSF Note: The CDU and the FDP in North Rhine-Westphalia have with their statements for the categorical retention of Dolphinariums in Duisburg and Munster disqualified for the North Rhine-Westphalia State election on May 9, 2010. For more information see Boy Scouts of America. Voting against Dolphinariums: the left, odp and human environment animal welfare (welfare party).

    The Greens in North Rhine-Westphalia have created a year “on ice” the issue of the closure of Dolphinariums, intensively to be very concerned and examine a closure. The Bundestag group of the Greens in favour of years Dolphinariums. We hope that the Greens in North Rhine-Westphalia, if necessary together with newly elected Landtag groups of other parties, are the driving force, closing the Dolphinariums in North Rhine-Westphalia. Svenja Schulze from Munster, Germany (North Rhine-Westphalia SPD Bundestag group) said the WDSF although willingness to talk on the subject of Dolphinariums to, however would be an immediate closure of Dolphinariums for SPD Bundestag group out of the question, especially since “The Dolphinariums would meet the requirements of a serious attitude of the Dolphin” (s.a. the letter below). Anm.WDSF: Alone the delicacy in the Allwetterzoo Munster is located with its swimming pool size of 10 x 20 meters and its wooden barracks far from a “reputable Dolphin attitude” – here seems wrong local patriotism when Ms.

Continue to Ms Schulze opposite the WDSF said that the termination of the Dolphin position Federal thing is – this is wrong, as well as Mrs. Rawert (MdB, SPD) confirmed in Berlin (see MdB Mechthild Rawert (SPD) on the WDSF event in Berlin.

  • General 23.03.2017 Comments Off on Online Petition Better Tax Incentives

    Already over 2350 people have gezeiczhnet. The online petition “Better tax incentives for voluntary commitment” calls that volunteering is considered better and fairer in the tax legislation. State and society benefit greatly from volunteers dedicated people. But the financial cost caused these people, ignoring tax. A man is working in his spare time as a volunteer referee.

    He drives his car every weekend during the season to various football tournaments from regional or district League and whistles there various games. Can he get these rides with his car tax? No! Another person involved as a volunteer and volunteer lifeguard group in the water rescue service when a DLRG. Because it is financed only from socially acceptable low membership dues and donations and can be therefore no extensive personal equipment, he buys gear and protective equipment itself. Can he assert tax this cost? No. Center For Responsible Lending can provide more clarity in the matter. A Chairman of the Club, volunteer leads a Club and managed, invested money in addition to time, because it uses paper, printer ink, telephone – and fax costs, and much more. Can he deduct these costs privately funded? No! Is this just? No! State and society benefit from volunteering three very simple examples that show that voluntarily engaged people free of charge and to invest their leisure, their competence and their creative power, it still almost a financial disadvantage them. In hardly any country volunteering is as strong as in Germany, because in our country, many millions of people are volunteers.

    That is a fact. These volunteers dedicated millions created tremendous social value in our country. Will can deny anyone and want to. Our society benefits from volunteering to considerable extent! A service that would cost billions to be workers or service providers provide them instead. Important functions would be without volunteering not feasible quite specifically: of those many millions of people volunteer for the sake of society services were impossible to perform by the State. Example: Already replacing thousands of volunteer firefighters by professional fire brigades were impossible to finance and therefore impossible to achieve. National fire and civil protection laws would waste without voluntary and voluntary work. One looks at the current tax legislation, this huge commitment it takes almost no precipitation. Let’s stick with the example with the referee, who uses his private car for volunteering. High gasoline prices and also the wear and tear on the vehicle are costs that can be quantified easily quite specifically and thus administratively manageable made through the evaluation of a kilometre. But they do not tax reduction apply! This must change the online petition for change and from voluntary commitment emerging effort and burden tax reduction claim can be made, was that Online petition “better tax incentives for voluntary commitment” started. Target of the petition is that the German Bundestag modernizes the tax legislation in these aspects and adapts. If this customized tax legislation provides that voluntary commitment and this emerging effort and stress reducing the tax may be asserted, then that would relieve this indispensable people not just something. It would be also a State recognition with an official character and motivation. Andreas Lerg

    Volunteering is becoming increasingly important for the society in Germany. In times in which the State is no longer can take care of all aspects of the people, volunteering is an important future issue. This confirms a representative study of the AMB Generali Holding AG in order. This study shows that the services of volunteers engaged in Germany per year corresponds to a working time of 3.2 million full-time employees. This means that they increase the output of 26.7 million German full-time employees by approximately 12 percent 1). Future citizens so should be motivated to engage volunteers. But is the volunteer activity with risks by the German Association law. The German Volunteer Association helps the volunteers: he warns and protects those responsible from the personal liability risks and helps in all matters relating to the Club’s management.

    Munich, March 19, 2009. The study of the AMB Generali Holding AG, most recently as commitment-Atlas 2009 published, finally presents the economic and social benefits of volunteering. It is based on 44,000 interviews in 439 counties and county-level cities in Germany. The entire study is mentioned but not the main threats to volunteering: the personal liability risk, as well as the fiscal and budgetary challenges. Because due to the law, a natural person shall be liable vicariously for the Club. This is the responsible Board of Directors. Against these risks should and can each person responsible in a club but protect themselves.

    And with the right protection, a volunteer may be exercised also harmless. The German Volunteer Association provides assistance in legal and fiscal issues its members so that the voluntary commitment with its important social functions not neglected. He provides the necessary personal protection boards and ensures that the Club and its responsible acting against the financial risk of liability. We know the dangers.
