Bedeutsamste Petition in der Geschichte des Tierschutzes an die Vereinten Nationen: Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit ächten – UN-Charta und Ressort für interkulturelle Ethik gefordert! UPDATE

Datum: 2017-07-26T13:24:35+0200

Von: “P.H. Arras” <info@akt-mitweltethik.de>



NUR diesen Link verbreiten, nicht den aus der Browserleiste, nachdem Ihr unterschrieben habt!!!

Dem sadistischen Irrsinn und der Lebensverachtung weltweit den Kampf ansagen – nur gemeinsam können wir erfolgreich sein!

Let us fight against sadistic madness and life contempt – only united can we be successful! (Text in Englisch im Anschluss (s.u.)!)

(Bitte überall verbreiten – auch ins Ausland!)


Liebe Unterstützer/innen,

in wenigen Tagen habt Ihr es geschafft, fast 40.000 Unterstützer/Innen für unsere historisch einmalige Petition gegen Verbrechen wider der Menschlichkeit weltweit an die Vereinten Nationen zu richten. Vielen Dank dafür!

Wir haben in der Tat Unterschriften und Kommentare aus allen Teilen der Welt – es ist phantastisch!

Deshalb haben wir unseren Petitionstext nicht nur in Englisch und Deutsch, sondern auch in Französisch und – in Kurzform auf Chinesisch gepostet, damit wirklich alle Menschen auf der Welt ihn lesen und unterstützen können. Für die spanisch sprechenden Regionen unserer Welt benötigen wir nun noch eine entsprechende Übersetzung – auch Portugiesisch, Thailändisch wäre hilfreich. Wer kann das für uns erledigen? Bitte meldet Euch unter info@akt-mitweltethik.de!

Wegen technischer Probleme bei change.org, die ausgerechnet unsere Petition betrafen, haben wir nun längere Zeit kein Update mehr verfasst. Deshalb ist die Teilnahme an unserer Petition nun leider erheblich abgeebbt. Das darf so nicht bleiben, denn wir müssen mindestens eine Million Unterschriften sammeln, damit die UN unserem so bedeutsamen Anliegen Beachtung schenkt.

Deshalb, bitte teilt und verschickt auch weiterhin diese Petition auf der ganzen Welt – auch nochmal an dieselben Empfänger, denen Ihr es schon einmal geschickt habt, denn die Diskrepanz zwischen denen, die unsere Petition aufgerufen haben und denen, die sie mit gezeichnet haben, ist beträchtlich. Lasst uns allen zeigen, was Globalisierung wirklich heißt, nämlich, dass wir es schaffen, eine starke weltweite Bewegung in Gang zu setzen von empathischen und ethisch motivierten Menschen, die nicht mehr länger zulassen, dass mutwillig begangene Grausamkeiten – ganz gleich gegenüber welcher Spezies – auf der Welt weiter begangen werden dürfen.

Lasst uns die Welt globalisieren bezüglich Humanität, Ethik und Mitgefühl mit allem Leben, denn es ist das elementarste Menschenrecht, auf einer harmonischen und friedfertigen Welt zu leben, die Unrecht, Grausamkeit und Ignoranz nicht duldet. Lasst uns diesbezüglich die UN in die Pflicht nehmen.

Und noch eine Bitte: Schreibt an change.org (info@changeverein.org) und bittet darum, unsere weltweite Initiative – unsere Petition – an alle Emailadressen zu schicken und die Unterstützung zu empfehlen, über die sie verfügt (es sind viele Millionen). Jeder anständige Mensch, der kein Sadist oder Tierhasser ist, kann und wird unsere Petition unterschreiben und weiterleiten – dessen bin ich mir sicher.

Es gibt in der heutigen Zeit so viel Grund zur Verzweiflung und Hoffnungslosigkeit, so vieles liegt im Argen, dass sich viele Menschen resigniert zurückziehen, anstatt die Initiative zu ergreifen. Unsere Petition ist ein realer Grund zur Hoffnung, damit unsere Welt endlich ein Ort des Respekts und der Achtung, der Liebe, Rücksichtnahme, des Wohlwollens und der Hilfsbereitschaft wird, in dem das Leben – gleich welcher Art – in seinem Wert geschätzt und beschützt wird und nicht mehr länger ausgebeutet, versklavt, gefoltert, erniedrigt und vernichtet.

Bitte, liebe Freunde/innen, gebt nicht auf, helft mir auch weiterhin, dass unsere gemeinsame Vision Wirklichkeit wird.


Euer Peter H. Arras



Let us fight against sadistic madness and life contempt – only united can we be successful!

Dear supporters,

in just a few days you will have managed to send almost 40,000 signatures to the United Nations (UN) in support of our historically unique petition against crimes against humanity. Thank you so much! There are signatures and comments from all parts of the word – it is absolutely fantastic!

Because of that we have now published the text of our petition not in English and German only, but there is a translation into French also and an abbreviated text in Chinese, so that more people in all the world can read and support it. For the Spanish speaking world we could do with a translation, too (or in Portuguese, or in Thai language etc.) – is there anybody volunteering to assist us? If yes, please kindly contact me at info@akt-mitweltethik.de!

Because of technical problems at the change.org platform, which of all things seems to have hit just us, we haven’t written any updates for a few days, and accordingly the participation in our petition has abated considerably. This must not remain so, because we must reach at least 1 million signatures to make the UN consider our demand which is so significant.

So, please let me ask you to send this petition everywhere – again to the same contacts as well, they might have been on holiday. And there is a discrepancy between those, who only read the petition and those, who have actually signed it. Let us show to them all, what globalization really means: to be able to start a worldwide movement driven by humans capable of empathy and compassion and motivated by ethics, people who do no longer accept, that wanton cruelties – committed to whichever species – are ignored and tolerated by the world community.

Let us globalize the world in humanitarian, ethical and compassionate terms concerning all forms of life, because it is the most elemental human right, to live in a world of peace and harmony, a world that does not tolerate injustice, cruelty and ignorance. Let us demand from the UN to do what is its duty!

And one more, please: Write to change.org (info@changeverein.org) and ask him, to send our worldwide initiative, our petition, to all the UN ambassadors and to recommend our petition to all the addresses they have (millions of them). Because every decent person, everybody who is not a sadist and not someone who hates animals, can sign and will sign our petition and pass it on – I am certain of that.

In our days there is so much reason for despair and hopelessness, there is so much bad going on, and many people just withdraw in resignation instead of taking initiative. Our petition is a reason for hope, that our world will eventually become a place of respect and love and thoughtfulness and goodwill and helpfulness and in which life – no matter of which form or species – will be appreciated and cherished and no longer exploited, enslaved, tortured, degraded and destroyed.

Dear friends, don’t give up, continue to help me to make our vision come true.

A Little Girl Loves A Big Elephant – Pooja & Shanti: Eine besondere Freundschaft The girl is called Pooja, and she was 6 years old when her father recorded this video. She is buying tomatoes for her friend Shanti. She does that every day when she is in India. But who is her friend Shanti? Shanti is an elephant, a temple elephant to be precise. Pooja ist ein mutiges Mädchens mit einem großen Herz für Tiere. Sie verbringt jedes Jahr die Wintermonate mit ihren Eltern in Indien. In einem Dschungelreservat lernt die sechsjährige Pooja, die Elefantendame Shanti kennen. Zwischen den beiden äußerlich so verschiedenen Wesen entsteht über viele Jahre eine wunderbare Freundschaft. Pooja lernt Shanti zu pflegen und für sie zu sorgen. Shanti erwidert diese Zuneigung auf vielerlei Art. Als Pooja sechs Jahre alt war, haben ihre Eltern einige Szenen gefilmt und uns das Material für diese Dokumentation zur Verfügung gestellt.

Subject: 27.-29.07.2017: 48-stündige Mahnwache gegen Tierversuche in München


27.07. 2017 – 29.07.2017 48-stündige Mahnwache gegen Tierversuche

Vom 27. Juli 15 Uhr bis zum 29. Juli 15 Uhr wird die Vereinigung Ärzte gegen Tierversuche – AG München eine durchgehende Mahnwache in der Trogerstraße am Forschungszentrum des Klinikums rechts der Isar abhalten. In stillem Gedenken möchten wir ganz in der Nähe der leidenden und sterbenden Labortiere unsere Trauer und Verzweiflung über die sinnlose Quälerei im Namen einer angeblich modernen Forschung und Wissenschaft ausdrücken. Dieser friedliche Widerstand soll stellvertretend für alle Tiere in den Laboren gelten, die durch menschliche Hand so viel Grausamkeit erleiden müssen. Poster und Transparente machen auf die Aktion aufmerksam und mit vielen Kerzen werden wir ein Lichtermeer erschaffen.

Egal wie lange Ihr Zeit habt, wir freuen uns über Euren Besuch!

Gesendet: Montag, 24. Juli 2017 um 23:16 Uhr Von: Tierschutz-Direkt <office@tierschutz-direkt.at> Betreff: Neues Tierschutzgesetz 2017 in Österreich – Todesurteil für hilfsbedürftige Tiere und ein Affront gegen Tierschutzvereine, Tierschützer und Tierfreunde

bitte mitmachen und weiterleiten Neues Tierschutzgesetz 2017 in Österreich – Todesurteil für hilfsbedürftige Tiere und ein Affront gegen Tierschutzvereine, Tierschützer und Tierfreunde EIN UNFASSBARER WAHNSINN !!! Die Novelle des Tierschutzgesetzes ist eine VERHÖHNUNG für alle Tierschutzvereine in Österreich, die sich EHRENAMTLICH verzweifelt darum einsetzen, die Zahl der Tiere durch Kastrationen zu reduzieren. Unsere Arbeit wird blockiert durch die Verbote der Tierinserate auf den Internetplattformen. Im Sinne des neuen Tier”schutz”gesetzes dürfen jetzt die Vermehrer weiter produzieren und inserieren auf den Internetplattformen und die wahren Tierschützer sind derzeit gesperrt, sofern sie keine Tierheime und Betriebsstätten vorweisen können. Sind das unsere Tierschutzvertreter in der Politik?! Jeder vernünftige tierliebende Mensch würde das nicht zulassen!! Das neue Tier”schutz”gesetz verbietet vielen kleinen Tierschutzvereinen ihre Arbeit, nämlich das Vermitteln von Streunertieren oder Tieren in Not in gute Pflege. Neben Züchtern dürfen übrigens auch Landwirte weiterhin im Internet z.B. auch Katzen zum Verkauf anbieten, die sie auf ihrem Hof züchten. Die Kastrationspflicht wurde einfach aufgehoben. Und die so entstehenden Streunertiere, die die Tierschutzvereine einsammeln, um ihnen zu helfen, dürfen von letzteren nicht mehr vermittelt werden. Man bekommt das Gefühl, dieses neue Tierschutzgesetz ist absichtlich mit Hass und Verachtung gegenüber Tierschutzarbeit geschrieben. WIR SAGEN NEIN zu einem Gesetz, das unsere Haustiere einfach verantwortungslos behandelt. Sagen auch Sie: NEIN! … indem Sie sich informieren und unsere Initiative(n) unterstützen. Details zu diesem Wahnsinn finden Sie auf: www.neuestierschutzgesetz.at Bitte ladet all eure Freunde zu dieser Seite ein… https://www.facebook.com/Neues-Tierschutzgesetz-2017-in-Österreich-483111085414114/ Schreiben Sie an die Medien in Österreich, um diesen Wahnsinn zu kippen: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=490169071374982&id=483111085414114 Wenn Sie protestieren wollen, warum nicht direkt beim zuständigen Ministerium anrufen, und diese Damen und Herren mal spüren lassen, was sie von solchen tierfeindlichen Maßnahmen halten?

Gesendet: Montag, 19. Juni 2017 um 19:13 Uhr Von: usiwek@weeac.eu Betreff: Einladung zum 2. Tierrechts-Gipfel Deutschland des WEEAC am 04. August 2017

Einladung zum 2. Tierrechtsgipfel-Deutschland Liebe Tierfreundinnen und Tierfreunde, liebe Mitstreiterinnen und Mitstreiter, am 04. August 2017 findet in Aschau im Chiemgau unser 2. Tierrechtsgipfel statt. Hier werden wir auf die politischen Vertreterinnen und Vertreter verschiedener Parteien, Landwirten und Jägern treffen, die wir auf Missstände in der Tierhaltung und andere wichtige Anliegen aufmerksam machen und zum Handeln auffordern werden. Es geht nicht um uns, sondern um die Tiere, deren Stimme wir sind. Uns ist bewusst, dass jede Tierschutzorganisation ihre eigenen Prioritäten hat und es in der Vergangenheit deshalb Unstimmigkeiten gegeben hat. Es werden aber auch immer mehr Stimmen lauter, die unser einheitliches Handel nicht nur fordern, sondern für den Erfolg unserer Ziele unabdingbar halten. Deshalb möchten wir Euch einladen, mit uns zusammen gemeinsame Argumente und Ziele festzulegen sowie Einheitlichkeit und Geschlossenheit demonstrieren. Bitte gebt uns schnell Bescheid, ob Ihr dabei seid. Wer am 4.August 2017 nach Aschau im Chiemgau kommen will, sollte sich möglichst bald anmelden. Weitere Infos findet Ihr auf : wwww.animal-rights-summit.com Facebookveranstaltung : https://www.facebook.com/events/100401420495213/?active_tab=about e-mail : usiwek@weeac.eu

SAVE THE DATE: Bundesweiter Aktionstag am 16. September 2017 vom Bündnis “Reichtum umverteilen – ein gerechtes Land für alle!”

Liebe Unterstützer*innen,

Das Bündnis „Reichtum umverteilen – ein gerechtes Land für alle!” ruft zum bundesweiten Aktionstag am 16. September 2017 auf.

Knapp eine Woche vor der Bundestagswahl wollen wir unseren Forderungen noch mal laut, kreativ und bunt Gehör verschaffen und laden alle herzlich ein, mitzumachen.

Eurer Kreativität sind keine Grenzen gesetzt. Für Inspiration zu Aktionen könnt ihr aber gerne einen Blick in unseren Aktionsleitfaden werfen. Schließt euch mit Gleichgesinnten zusammen und organisiert bei euch vor Ort eigene Aktionen, Veranstaltungen, Kundgebungen/Demonstrationen oder Flashmobs. Vielleicht gibt es in eurer Gegend sogar schon lokale Strukturen und/oder Ansprechpartner*innen? Eine Übersicht findet ihr auf unserer Webseite. Eure Aktionen am 16. September und natürlich auch um den Termin herum, könnt ihr auf unserer Webseite in den Terminkalender eintragen. Wir bemühen uns, eure Aktionen auf Social Media zu verbreiten.

Auch wir auf Bundesebene planen eine bunte Aktion in Berlin, die sehr gerne in eurer Region/ Stadt nachgeahmt werden kann. Unter dem Motto „Wir fangen schon mal an: Superheld*innen verteilen um“, laden wir alle Superheld*innen der Umgebung um 12 Uhr zum Bundestag ein, um von dort symbolisch das Geld dahin umzuverteilen, wo es dringen benötigt wird – in die Kitas, Krankenhäuser, Jugendeinrichtungen, Schulen, bezahlbaren Wohnraum usw. Kurz vor der Wahl möchten wir die Politiker/-innen noch mal daran erinnern, dass genug Geld da ist, es braucht nur den Mut, es sich zu holen. Zur Superheld*in zu werden ist ganz leicht, ein paar Tipps zur Verwandlung findet ihr auf dem Foto im Anhang.

Egal für welche Aktion ihr euch entscheidet, ihr könnt dazu reichlich Aktionsmaterial (Comics, Flyer, Poster usw.) auf unserer Webseite bestellen und unter die Leute bringen. Außerdem freuen wir uns, wenn ihr uns im Anschluss zur Veröffentlichung Fotos von euren Aktionen zukommen lasst, damit wir die Vielfalt aller Aktionen und Unterstützer*innen publik machen können. Und natürlich reichlich Twittern nicht vergessen: #reichtumumverteilen

Wir freuen uns sehr, wenn ihr dabei seid und den Aktionstag bekannt macht.

Für den Arbeitsausschuss des Bündnisses

UK: Cows’ milk CAN be branded ‘inhumane’ after ‘landmark’ ruling for vegan campaigners.




Cows’ milk CAN be branded ‘inhumane’ after ‘landmark’ ruling for vegan campaigners

VEGANS may brand milk production “inhumane” after the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruled in favour of an activist group’s anti-dairy campaign.

The ruling has caused fury among dairy farmers, who have branded the advert, placed in national newspapers, “misleading”.

But vegan campaigners have said the ruling proves their claim that milk production involves cruelty to young cattle.

It is estimated more than 540,000 vegans now live in Britain, up from 150,000 ten years ago.




Switzerland: News From Venus Re Hunting.


Dear Mark,


I received this pleasing information a few days ago and wanted to make it public.

It is about an initiative of the Swiss animal party to bribe hobby hunting and to organize forest guardians for nature and animals in the forest.

In Canton Geneva is the private hunting since 9. Mai 1974 prohibited. It is replaced by the so-called administrative hunting in which the hunting duties of cantonally hunted hunters, the gamekeepers are concerned.


I translate the article from the Wild Animal Protection Society:


On Tuesday, July 18, 2017, the Swiss Animal Party (TPS) submitted the national initiative “gamekeeper instead of hunters” to the canton of Zurich.

Over 7,000 signatures have been collected. Now, the Zurich voters will decide whether the wild animals in the canton of Zurich will be professionally supervised by a modern game management and thus the hobby-hunting will be abolished as leisure pleasure

“The popular saying ‘To care and to tend’, which is popular among hunters, for the justification of a bloody hobby is an old myth”, says the co-founder and president of the Swiss Animal Party (TPS) Monika Heierli-Rutishauser, “today it is scientifically proven that nature regulates itself.

This statement is confirmed by a variety of positive experiences in regions which are free of hunting grounds, including the Wild conservation region of the city of Zurich.

It is now known that the hunting of the wild animals does not lead to a regulation of the stock, but is the cause of the problem, since the fertility (birthrate) of the wild animals increases by the hunt!


The initiative demands that the stock of wild animals be given the opportunity to regulate themselves in the future, and therefore relies on modern, supportive wildlife management by professionally trained gamekeepers. This will abolish today’s hobby-hunting, and will lead to various positive effects, as can be read in the initiative text and its explanation.


My best Regards to you and all

Australia: Campaign Victory – The Governor of Bali has signed a ruling to end the brutal dog meat trade.

Mark, something historic just happened.

The Governor of Bali has signed a ruling to end the brutal dog meat trade. With the careful stroke of his pen, he sealed a kinder, safer future for dogs on the island. As you read this email, I want you to know that you were one of the people who made this victory for dogs possible.

See how you helped…


When an Animals Australia investigator first infiltrated dog meat gangs in Bali, the cruelty suffered by dogs was largely hidden. He captured evidence of immense suffering, and revealed that tourists were unwittingly fuelling the trade, making our responsibility to these animals even greater.

I write to you today with absolute gratitude. Because of you, the bamboo crates that once confined frightened dogs for days on end will soon be empty. Your critical role in this campaign means that the days of dogs being poisoned, beaten and strangled for their meat will end. Your unwavering support of our work, and faith in our strategies, has ensured that once again dogs will peacefully co-exist in Balinese communities — as they had done for centuries. You’ve been part of a team effort for animals, like no other.

Since we released the results of our investigation, a staggering 170,000 people from 159 countries have signed our petition appealing to the Governor to help dogs in Bali.

In a landmark Summit just two weeks ago, we brought together government officials, health authorities, tourism bodies and community leaders, achieving universal acceptance — for the very first time — that the dog meat trade should end. The relentless efforts of our Veterinary Director on the ground in Bali have been supported by thousands of individuals, who’ve demonstrated that when good people work together on behalf of animals, extraordinary things can happen.

You’ve helped Animals Australia make history in Bali.

For now, our work there continues and there is still much to be done. With the continued support of our members, we are committed to staying the course in Bali to see this commitment become a reality, and working towards broader change for all animals on the island. What our investigations into the dog meat trade have again reinforced are the risks faced by animals when they are seen as nothing more than a food source. Our vision is for a world where all animals are treated with compassion and respect, and are free from cruelty. In Bali — and well beyond — thank you for helping us make this vision a reality.

Please take a moment to watch this uplifting video and celebrate this milestone for animals with us 🙂

For the animals,

Lyn White AM Investigations Director

  1. Sadly, the risks to animals in any country only increase when they are hidden from public view. Whether on board live export ships, inside factory farms, or out of sight in slaughterhouses — your donation today will help Animals Australia’s investigators be where animals need them most.



UK: Government Just Banned Microbeads – Excellent News For Marine Wildlife.

This is huge – the UK government has banned ocean-polluting microbeads!

Microbeads are tiny pieces of plastic that are found in products ranging from toothpastes to face scrubs. They go down the plughole and end up in our oceans and waterways, where they can be mistaken for food by fish.

When this campaign started back in January 2016, hardly anyone had heard of microbeads (including me!)

But with your help, these tiny plastic polluters became a massive issue. Over 385,000 of you signed Greenpeace UK’s biggest petition yet, calling for the UK government to ban microbeads. Thousands of you emailed your MPs, posted on social media and shared your ideas for microbead alternatives.

Microbeads went from being virtually unknown, to being talked about by everyone from government ministers to celebrities – they even made it onto the front pages of national newspapers!

Hundreds of thousands of us came together, alongside organisations like the Marine Conservation Society, Fauna and Flora International and the Environmental Investigations Agency, to make real change happen.

 The UK government’s ban is the strongest in the world to date. It’s not yet perfect, but crucially the government have left the door open to broaden the ban in future – and we’ll be keeping a close eye on them to make sure this happens!

There are still many threats facing our oceans – from climate change to overfishing to plastic bottles – but with your help, we’ll continue to take action to protect our precious oceans for years to come.

Thanks so much for all you do,

Alice & the Oceans team

UK: As We Said, Away From The Useless EU Shackles, THE UK Can, And Will Take Back Control For The Better Of Animals And The Environment.



SAV Comment:  We have said for a long time on this site that the UK getting away from the Junker / Tusk / Van Goethem attitudes of ‘we can do nothing’ when it comes to the environment and animals welfare should be very beneficial to both the environment and animal welfare.  Free from EU shackles which really mean and do nothing to help either, because the EU does not enforce its own rules and regulations, will mean that post Brexit in just a few years time, the UK will take back control of its own laws from the EU and can work hard with NGO’s to make the all round situation much better for environment and animals.

We have some faith in Mr Gove who describes himself as an ‘environmentalist’ – which is great as he is now the newly appointed Minister at the Department for Agriculture, Food and the Environment in the UK. – https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/department-for-environment-food-rural-affairs  – as the Defra Minister, Mr Gove is the first and most important UK government person in charge of how the UK stands regarding environment and agriculture; including animal welfare

As an NGO, we are most keen to see the UK prepare to ban live animal exports as soon as it leaves the EU.  We are certain this will happen as there is already a lot happening on this issue ready for the day we leave the EU and take back our own controls as a nation

We are more than happy to assist Mr Gove with our views and knowledge on some issues – especially things such as animal exports. 

The EU, under Junker, Tusk and co. will simply plod on doing nothing in reality for animals and the environment.  If other EU welfare organisations want things to remain as they are; which basically means having their evidence ignored; then they stay in the EU – the union of no progress or hope.  If they want improvements in the environment and animal welfare, then they should follow the UK and get out of the EU – take back their own controls by their OWN governments – not that of tin pot masters in Brussels.

The other nations of Europe have their choice to leave, but will any of them do it ? – we very much doubt.  So they can all plod along meeting Mr do nothing types like Van Goethem; presenting all their evidence of animal cruelty etc – and we guess they will continue to be simply ignored just like they have been so much over so many years.  SAV.



Mr Gove has said in his speech of 21/7/17:


The decision to leave the European Union has been interpreted in many ways, and I won’t revisit the debates now which led to that decision being made. Now that decision has been made, it creates new opportunities, and challenges, for the British Government. And nowhere more so than in the area of environmental policy.

We now have (outside of EU controls) an historic opportunity to review our policies on agriculture, on land use, on biodiversity, on woodlands, marine conservation, fisheries, pesticide licensing, chemical regulation, animal welfare, habitat management, waste, water purity, air quality and so much more.

Leaving the European Union means leaving the Common Agricultural Policy, leaving the Common Fisheries Policy, and taking back control of environmental policy.

Report of same from other sources:




Farm subsidies will have to be earned rather than just handed out in future, the Environment Secretary Michael Gove has said in a speech.

Farmers will only get payouts if they agree to protect the environment and enhance rural life, he will say.

The move is part of what he calls his vision for a “green Brexit”.

He criticised the current system for giving money to some of the UK’s wealthiest landowners, for encouraging wastage, and for not recognising “good environmental practice”

Mr Gove described Brexit as “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reform how we care for our land, our rivers and our seas, how we recast our ambition for our country’s environment, and the planet”.




Michael Gove says microbeads – tiny pieces of plastic that are easily swallowed by marine life – will be banned from use in cosmetics and personal care products

The UK Government will ban the sale of microbeads as part of efforts to reduce plastic in the ocean, Environment Secretary Michael Gove has announced.

The measures, unveiled by Gove as part of a speech on ‘delivering a green Brexit’, would mean microbeads – tiny pieces of plastic that are easily swallowed by marine life – will be banned from use in cosmetics and personal care products such as toothpastes and shower gels.

Announcing the government would follow a recent consultation with legislation to prohibit their use later this year, Gove described the effect of microbeads on marine life as “devastating”.


Gove also outlined plans to explore new methods of reducing the number of plastic bottles from entering the oceans.

Speaking at WWF UK on Friday morning, Gove said: “Eight million tonnes of plastic are discarded into the world’s oceans each year, putting marine wildlife under serious threat.

“In October 2015, the government introduced the 5p carrier bag charge. Figures released today show that policy’s enormous success – nine billion fewer carrier bags distributed since the charge was introduced, a fall of 83 per cent. More than £95million raised from the charge has been donated to environmental, educational and other good causes.

He added: “There is more we can do to protect our oceans, so we will explore new methods of reducing the amount of plastic – in particular plastic bottles – entering our seas, improve incentives for reducing waste and litter, and review the penalties available to deal with polluters – all part of a renewed strategy on waste and resources that looks ahead to opportunities outside the EU.”




Michael Gove ‘deeply regrets’ Trump’s approach to Paris climate agreement

In first speech since cabinet return, environment secretary says he hopes US president will have a change of heart.

The environment secretary said international cooperation was crucial to resolve the problem of climate change, adding: “The world’s second-biggest generator of carbon emissions can’t simply walk out of the room when the heat is on.

Gove described himself as an environmentalist in his speech in Woking, Surrey, on Friday morning. “Leaving the EU gives us a once in a lifetime opportunity to reform how we care for our land, our rivers and our seas, how we recast our ambition for our country’s environment, and the planet. In short, it means delivering a green Brexit.

I am an environmentalist first because I care about the fate of fellow animals, I draw inspiration from nature and I believe we need beauty in our lives as much as we need food and shelter.”

Mr Gove and friend – Mr Gove is on the right !

[Call for Action] Dog meat farmers trading ​hundreds of dogs in the hillside in Yangsan

Busan Korea Alliance for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Busan KAPCA)and Kookje newspaper reported the below story:

A scene has been recorded of dog meat farmers from across the country trading hundreds of dogs at a hillside of Yangsan(Gyeongsangnam-do Province). On July 11th, the Busan KAPCA exposed video of dogs, raised for consumption, being secretly traded on July 4th at a hillside in Yangsan. Dog farmers from across the country were trading these dogs.

The footage contains pictures of seven or eight large Dosa dogs in a tiny and rusty metal cage with no space in which to move. During the course of the trade, dogs that were not cooperating were jabbed with iron sticks. One struggling dog is shown being grabbed by the collar. It is estimated that there are several hundreds of dogs in metal cages that are lined up in vacant lot. The dogs were being sold for 400,000 to 600,000 Korean won each, and it was estimated that up to 250 dogs were being sold daily.

Hunters claim to hang dead animal heads on the wall because they are ‘beautiful’.

My mum is very attractive, but I have a photo of her on my wall ! – Mark – SAV.



Dear Mark — Founder ‘Serbian Animals Voice’,

Cecil the lion’s six-year-old son, Xanda, has been killed almost exactly on the second anniversary of his own death, which caused international outcry over the cruelty of trophy hunting.

Just like Cecil, Xanda, a young father himself, was lured away from the safety of a national park in Zimbabwe. Also like Cecil, Xanda was wearing a research collar and was an important part of a long-term study on lions.

Killing Cecil and Xanda shows a shocking display of disrespect for these imperiled animals and the unnecessary killing of these majestic creatures just for bragging rights and a head-hunting exercise.

The tide is turning against trophy hunting around the world as a result of Cecil’s death—and the killing of his son will only add to that momentum.

Please sign our pledge to take a stand against this senseless cruelty.

News, Views and Info From Venus.

Hallo dear Mark,

I have found this short but very interesting article on the “business” of the EU in a very enlightened newspaper. I translated the article, but first I would like to write my first thought that came to me when I read that.


Since years, we try to get through the 8 hours of animal transports. For many years, we are trying to stop the criminal gangs in Romania, which are doing the bad business with the strays and, as known, also with EU funds. For years, we try to abolish or at least minimize the animal experiments, which are led only by greedy criminal idiots.

The answer of the EU Commission on these issues was always: “we can do nothing”.

Nevertheless, in this corrupt business, the EU Commission can do something, and even very quickly!

It can threaten Ukraine, that it will not get financial support, if it does not allow (as it wanted), that EU-Gangs rob their forests and destroy them. This is how the EU supports nature and animals!

Only those who cooperate with the EU’s Mafia Scams will get “kisses” from Juncker!

The others, we all, who try to abolish the suffering of animals, we who are trying to free the slaves of this world, we have been ignored for years with the outrageous sentence: “we can do nothing”

Only that was my first thought. And this thought has provoked a strong anger in me.

Best regards from



The translation

The EU is happy to present itself as a community of values. The “Deforestation in Bucovina” feature illustrates what is meant by this. In 2015 environmentalists, such as Mikola Petichenko, had achieved that Kiev passed a law, prohibiting the export of timber. After the “political change” in 1991, Ukraine lost a considerable part of its tree population through the ruthless clearing of the Carpathian forests.

Criminal gangs and the buyers of their prey in the EU have benefited.

The EU immediately saw an infringement of the Association Agreement with Ukraine. Brussels argues that the regulation only favors smuggling and threatens to stop its aid payments to Kiev.

So the law was again overturned, whereupon Jean-Claude Juncker stepped up to the press and rejoiced that the promised 500 million euros would now be surrendered – that the overexploit can go on without undisturbed. This make clear what values count in the end.


Hallo my dear Mark,

In Minnesota, animal activists have liberated probably on Monday, 17. July,  40,000 fur bred animals from their Torture. I send you the link.

The system-serving Sheriffs have already started their dirty propaganda in public, so that the prisoners are caught again. Because it is about economic losses for the Farm, nothing more.

-These minks have no chance of survival

– Many of the liberated minks will not survive their liberation for long

– And many wild animals of the region will fall victims of these hungry minks who are looking for food.

The Stearns County Sheriff’s Office is not interested in the minks or the wild animals.

It is only interested about the economic losses of $750,000  for the farm of hell.

Old good times are reawakened today in my memory. USA was the country with the most animal liberation in the 80 years. And for many years ALF had written history with her lab and fur farms actions. The concept of “animal rights movement” got popularity and sympathy in the masses.

Today, courageous activists have shown us that the United States is not the same as Trump. And not only!

I started my day with a small portion of hope. For America, for the animals, for all of us.


Best Regards to you and all


I have just received this interesting article from a friend :




And finally a few small links of our own to show how the ‘wonderful’ EU – a multitude of nations; or is that simply Mr. Junker, are treating those (like the UK which is leaving the club) that do not comply with HIS rules and regulations.  Regulations of the EU exist only as words on EU bits of paper.  As we have shown many times on the site, enforcement of EU Regulations is way above the EU – they are incapable of enforcing their own rules where and when it matters.   They turn a blind eye to corruption, non compliance of the rules and their own enforcement of EU legislation. 

Despite what is being said, the EU IS trying to PUNISH the UK for leaving the union.  They will attempt to make it as hard and financially depleting as they can in order to try to prevent other nations from leaving the club. The UK has faced a lot of much more severe problems over the last century that those now trying to be imposed by Junker and crew – world wars; the blitz in London during WW2, decades of IRA bombings; terrorism on the streets – the EU is nothing but pathetic; they consider themselves to be gods whilst the normal citizens of Europe look at these fools and ask them when they are actually going to enforce their own regulations.

The UK voted to leave and it will.  Brussels really hate that, but it is their inactions in the past, and now, that have led the good people of the UK to give Brussels and Junker the two fingers. 

Here is a point some may like – during the old wars between the UK and France (ie Agincourt etc) many centuries ago, the English longbow men were fatal with their professionalism and accuracy.  If they were captured by the French during these wars, the French would cut off the index and middle finger of the English longbow men so that they would never be able to draw a bow again. 


Thus, on the battlefield, the English bowmen would often give the French enemy the ‘two finger salute’ to show that they still had their (bow drawing) fingers; could still use their weapon and thus cause them big problems.  Two finger salutes as they are known is now subsequently a common British way of showing disgust to opponents – and now the citizens of the UK have great pleasure in giving the two fingers to the tin pot gods at the EU in Brussels.  SAV.

Vietnam: 19/7/17 – Breaking News – Animals Asia And The Government Sign Agreement To End ALL Bear Bile Farming – The Next Step: Sanctuaries For Over 1,000 Bears To Be Rescued. Brilliant Jill !!




BREAKING NEWS: Vietnam agrees plan to close all bear bile farms.

19 July 2017


Click here to see many official photographs of the agreement signing:



In a historic move the Vietnamese government has agreed a plan with Animals Asia to finally end bear bile farming in the country.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) outlines an agreement between animal welfare NGO Animals Asia and the Vietnam Administration of Forestry  (VNFOREST) to work together to rescue the remaining bears still caged on farms across Vietnam – believed to be around 1,000.

The document was signed and announced at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development in Hanoi on Wednesday 19 July.

Mr Cao Chi Cong, Deputy General Director of the Vietnam Administration of Forestry, under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, joined Animals Asia CEO and founder Jill Robinson MBE in signing the MOU.

The move follows the MOU between Animals Asia and the Vietnamese Traditional Medicine Association signed in 2015, agreeing to ensure a complete end to bear bile prescription among traditional medicine practitioners by 2020

This is anticipated to continue a significant reduction in demand and contribute towards the ending of the illegal market for bear bile.

Today’s agreement is effectively one that will finally close the loophole that has allowed bile farms to continue despite the illegality of the trade.

The MOU commits the government to ensuring no bears are allowed to be kept by private households – where illegal bile extraction can take place – and that the approximately 1,000 bears currently held in captivity around the country are moved to sanctuaries.

Animals Asia’s Vietnam Director Tuan Bendixsen said:

“This historic document ties NGOs and the government of Vietnam to a common goal – the end of bear bile farming in Vietnam.

“Crucially, the government has agreed to close the loophole that has allowed bile farming to persist for the last decade. By signing this MOU, they have agreed that there can be no bears kept on farms, because as long as they are there, they will suffer extraction.”

Animals Asia has so far rescued 186 bears in Vietnam since setting up its sanctuary in Tam Dao in 2008.

Bear bile farming has been illegal in Vietnam since 1992. In 2006, every bear in captivity was microchipped so that no new bears could be added to farms. But with the country lacking resources and expertise to build rescue centres and care for the animals, households were allowed to keep the bears on the government’s behalf having agreed not to extract bile. This loophole has effectively allowed bear bile farming to continue until now.

Since bear bile farming became a common practice in China and Vietnam in the 1980s, wild populations have been decimated to meet the demand the industry created.

A report by Animals Asia and Free The Bears released in 2016 found that wild populations across South East Asia had fallen dramatically with precious few pockets of wild bears existing in Vietnam today.  It had been wrongly anticipated that farming bears would actually help conserve wild bears.

In 2005 bear bile farming reached its peak in Vietnam with over 4,000 bears in captivity, but with farmers unable to add new bears to existing stocks, numbers have dwindled to around 1,000.

Tuan said:

“This agreement shows Vietnam acknowledges that bear bile farming harms wild populations. By signing on, they’ve shown they are serious about conserving the country’s remaining wild bears and protecting the heritage of future generations.”

While the signing of a memorandum of understanding is a landmark achievement in the battle to end bear bile farming cruelty, it will not mean an overnight end to the industry in Vietnam.

Key issues such as how to fund and manage the sanctuaries and how to proceed with the transfer of privately owned bears to rescue centres will be hammered out as part of the agreement.

It’s anticipated that new sanctuaries would need to be constructed and assistance sought from existing sanctuaries run by animal conservation and welfare charities.

Animals Asia’s Founder and CEO, Jill Robinson MBE said:

“This agreement has been a long time coming with discussions beginning around 2014, so to see it finalised is a major step forward. This, of course, doesn’t end the work. Quite the opposite, but it now means we work together with a common goal – to end this cruelty. 

“With all parties pulling in the right direction and in agreement about our goals we can make real progress. For the animals who have suffered for more than a decade in awful conditions the move to sanctuaries cannot come soon enough and that is the next issue – how to fund, build and manage the new sanctuaries which are necessary to rescue all bears.

“We’ve essentially sat down with the government and made a list of what needs to be completed to end bear bile farming and agreed to work through these issues together.

“It is still a huge undertaking and will require the participation of many groups, NGOs, government departments and the support of animal lovers in general to make this agreement reality, but pivotally we are all in agreement about what has to be done and now we can get on with seeing it through.”

Netting and Plastic – When It Is Not Disposed Of Properly – Death To Innocent Wildlife.

Breaking 16/7/17

SAV Comment – What fantastic news ! – biodegradable 6 pack can rings that breaks down in the water AND then can be used a food for turtles etc – Superb !


Now it is a case of getting the word out for others to follow this super approach to marine conservation.


A Brewery Has Created Biodegradable 6-Pack Rings That Will Feed Marine Life Instead Of Killing Them:





Most of these plastic six-pack rings end up in our oceans and pose a serious threat to wildlife. Together with Saltwater Brewery, a small craft beer brand in Florida whose primary target are surfers fishermen and people who love the sea, we decided to tackle the issue head on and make a statement for the whole beer industry to follow.

We ideated, designed, prototyped and manufactured Edible Six Pack Rings.

A six-pack packaging design that instead of killing animals, feeds them.


So think, and take the bloody stuff home with you.  Dispose of it correctly – Do not simply dump in the sea or on the beach !

Cut plastic can holders so they can never become trapped around the bodies of young turtles when out at sea, deforming them as they grow.   See some pictures below which shows what happens when they are NOT CUT in all places. 


I was diving in the Malaysian’s water off Pulau Tioman. My buddy spotted this drift-net with a trapped turtle. After photographing it, we call all the other divers in to cut up the nets and disposed it when we get back on land. The net measured up to about 30m in length. Sad to say the turtle did not make it.




Serbia: Azra Has A Cancer, But Needs Funds To Sort It – Please Help – See Below.


PLEASE read the story about Azra, so heartbreaking.  Azra doesn’t deserve this, so PLEASE anyone who might help her to continue the therapy, do it!

We have to win this battle together!


The Story

This is Azra, the beautiful girl whose ‘owner’ obviously does not care too much about her because he allowed her to come to this situation, and the situation is following: the carcinoma of the vagina whose type we still do not know because it requires a departure to vet clinic in Belgrade, after the suggestions of the veterinarians in Bor where Azra lives, and the pathohistology has to be done.

What the veterinarian suggests is a quality surgery of an experienced surgeon, which again requires a visit to Belgrade, and for which there is no money.

Jovan Joja Cvetkovic took over the dog as soon as he found out about her, since ‘the owner’  does not want to do anything about her, moreover, after  her cancer appeared he completely abandoned her and left her on her own.

I am asking you  that we all together help Joja and AZRA  to win this battle, not to give up on her without even trying. At least we owe it to Azra and him. By going to Belgrade and hopefully being operated, Azra has already begun receiving therapy in Bor with cytostatics, which costs a lot.

HELP for paying the treatment and Azra’s departure to Belgrade and eventual surgeries is more than welcome!

It is going to be hard and expensive according to vet, but AZRA deserves to live!

England: Act Now To Support The Campaign To CLOSE DOWN Hogwood Pig Farm.

Hogwood Farm Update


Watch the vigil for pigs at Hogwood Farm

Dear Mark

Our petition to close down Hogwood Farm needs your help. With over 19,000 signatures so far, we’ve made some great progress – but we need more if we’re going to succeed in getting it closed down.

On Monday, Viva! founder & director Juliet Gellatley was joined by 60 people for a peaceful vigil outside the Warwickshire farm where horrendous conditions were filmed by Viva! Campaigns.

The investigation and vigil have been covered in national and local media, leading to growing condemnation and public support. Juliet repeated her calls for the farm to be shut down. If you haven’t already, please sign the petition to make the authorities take action!

After the vigil, Juliet made a grisly discovery of dumped pig remains in a wood near the farm, on land belonging to the owner. We have reported this to the authorities and are demanding that they take action to stop this practice.

What can you do to help?
We need your support to help us end this war on animals. Thank you to all everyone who has signed the petition so far. If you haven’t signed yet, we desperately need you to help us end this suffering. Please sign the petition now and help us save the pigs at this horror farm.

Australia: Petition – Stop The Government Forcing Animal Rescue Charity To Pay $300,000 For Road Upgrades.


This week our good friends at Farm Animal Rescue were forced to go public with a petition calling on the Queensland Government to abandon its plans to force the charity to pay $300,000 for road upgrades!

Farm Animal Rescue (FAR) is a registered charity and sanctuary for animals that have been rescued from starvation, danger, and abuse. We can’t speak highly enough of the work the team at FAR do for the animals.

The Government has made the decision to ban visitors from Farm Animal Rescue unless they spend $300,000 adding an additional lane to Dayboro Road, a highway managed by Queensland Transport and Main Roads. With the charity unable to come up with such a huge amount of money, it would mean an end to visitors like you at the sanctuary, and make the future of the sanctuary uncertain. 

Please sign the petition, spread the word and keep an eye on social media for further steps you can take to help save FAR in the coming weeks!

For the animals,
Chay and the team at Animal Liberation Queensland

Plastic Straws Are Killing Sea Wildlife – Take Action To Help Stop It Now.




McDonald’s uses a staggering 3.5 million plastic straws every single day — and that’s just in the UK. Used for a few seconds, then thrown away, many end up polluting our oceans.

Small, light, and hard to avoid, it’s no wonder plastic straws dumped into the sea get stuck in sea turtles’ nostrils, lodged in the stomachs of baby seabirds, and end up in our food chain after being eaten by fish.

Just recently a UK based pub chain stopped routinely giving out plastic straws — but its 100,000 straws per month is a drop in the ocean compared to McDonald’s 3.5 million a day habit.

Just image what a difference 3.5 million straws a day out of circulation would make to our oceans and the animals that live in them.



Tell McDonald’s to stop using plastic straws that pollute our oceans today.

Plastic pollution is one of the biggest threats to our oceans, and straws are one of the most common plastic items found in beach cleanups, according to Greenpeace.

A total of 8 million tonnes of plastic ends up in our seas every year — that’s the equivalent to five shopping bags of waste on every foot of coastline in the world! And as a result it is estimated that every year a million seabirds and 100,000 marine animals — such as sea turtles — die.

Plastic doesn’t degrade, but is broken up into ever smaller pieces. So if that straw isn’t swallowed whole by a large bird or turtle the bits it breaks into can be eaten by fish or fed to chicks starving to death with stomachs full of plastic.

Taking 3.5 million plastic straws per day out of use would be a major step towards cleaning up our seas and protecting wildlife from this plastic menace.


Take action now, tell McDonald’s to stop using plastic straws that pollute our oceans.

We’ve faced huge and powerful corporate players before, and we know that when SumOfUs members like you stand up for what’s right, together we can force them to change. After all we’ve done it before.

We’ve forced McDonald’s — along with companies like Starbucks, and KFC — to commit to sourcing 100% responsible palm oil. When we expose the ugly side of corporate giants — like McDonald’s — they take action to protect their brand. And in doing so we score a massive victory for our planet.


Take action now, tell McDonald’s to stop using plastic straws that pollute our oceans.

Thanks for all that you do,

Tricia, Sondhya and the team at SumOfUs

5 Facts That You Should Know About Bear Bile Farming.

Click here to see more photographs of this disgusting animal abuse:



1. Bear bile does have medicinal uses but there are cruelty-free alternatives

Bear bile has been used in traditional Asian medicine for thousands of years. It contains high levels of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) known to be useful for treating liver and gall bladder conditions. However, there are now many readily available herbal and synthetic alternatives with the same medicinal properties. Traditional medicine practitioners agree, nobody’s health will suffer due to a lack of bear bile.

In the past bear bile would be obtained by hunting bears in the wild and killing them to remove their gall bladder. It would have been a particularly rare and prized ingredient at the time used sparingly for specific medical conditions. In the 1980s however, bear bile farming began to be practiced as a way of constantly extracting bile for the duration of a bear’s life. Today more than 12,000 bears are believed to be kept on bear bile farms in China and Vietnam


2. Extracting bile from bears is as cruel and painful as you would imagine

The extraction of bear bile from live bears causes unimaginable suffering and long term health problems for these physically and psychologically damaged animals.

A number of techniques exist, all of which are particularly gruesome. While the techniques vary between Vietnam and China, each involves bears being kept in tiny cages. Extraction methods range from “free drip” where the bear suffers a hole in their gall bladder, to the insertion of permanent catheters.

Crush cages and bears locked into metal jackets have now been made illegal in China – but are likely to still be used in poorer farms. Bears literally grow up in tiny cages to the point where their bodies have contorted to fit the bars. Most have few teeth left due to literally trying to chew their way out

In China some farms have breeding programmes, but also rely on these being added to by poaching bears from the wild. Many bears can be caged as cubs and never released, suffering up to 30 years of continuous torture by bile extraction.

Most farmed bears however are starved, dehydrated and suffer from multiple diseases and malignant tumours that ultimately kill them.


3. The Chinese people don’t want bear bile farming

A 2011 poll by Animals Asia found that a staggering 87% of Chinese people interviewed disagree with the cruel practice of bear bile farming

The medical community too is shunning bear bile farming, with thousands of pharmacies recently pledging never to stock bile products as part of Animals Asia’s Healing Without Harm programme.

This year the owners of Nanning Bear Bile Farm asked us to take over and convert it into a sanctuary.  They were in agreement that the industry must end – because, in their words, bear bile farming is both cruel and hopeless.

Meanwhile Kai Bao, the biggest single buyer of bear bile, recently announced they were pursuing research into bear bile alternatives with government backing.  The suggestion remains that the market is reducing.


4. It’s still legal in China but not in Vietnam

Unfortunately, bear bile farming is still completely legal in China – albeit with regulations aimed at curbing the worst cruelty of the industry.  Regulations that are circumvented or ignored time and again – so far, with no prosecutions being made.

In Vietnam, bear bile farming has been technically illegal since 1992, but it wasn’t until 2005 that species-specific legislation was introduced banning the exploitation of these endangered animals. Sadly, bear bile farming persists in the country due to legal loopholes as well as the fact that demand still exists.

 5. We won’t stop fighting until bear bile farming is ended for good

Since being set up in 1998 Animals Asia has continuously campaigned to end bear bile farming in China and Vietnam. Thanks to the staunch support of people all over the world, we have been able to take bear bile farming from a dark secret to an international outrage. We have rescued more than 500 bears in Vietnam and China from the cruelty of bear bile farms and are absolutely committed to ending this cruel trade.

But we can’t do it alone. We need your help and the help of everyone you know to condemn this barbaric industry to the history books. So please, tell your friends, share this article and support our work. Together we can end the cruelty.




Germany: G20 – A View From The Front Line.


Dear Mark,

After the summit meeting G20 in Hamburg I send you my personal criticism and my subjective opinion about this fiasco.

I was also there and could judge the things myself.

Best regards from Venus


The show with the G20 is over, at least in Hamburg.

The fact that the 19 great states (+ EU representative) have decided nothing important seems to surprise no one.

According to reports from serious journalistic sources (RT), about 76,000 demonstrators protested. Engaged, combative people from every political direction, people with Animal Liberation t-shirts were also there, social democrats, greens, citizens’ initiatives, vegans, carnivores … it was all represented!!

The police have denied elementary democratic rights of peaceful protesters and journalists, and they (protesters) were attacked with pepper spray and sticks; There have been many injured persons.

Among the protesters were not only anarchists who reject any government (of any kind). Most people knew that it was a struggle for world power, between American and European capitalists.

More or less independent were only India, China and Russia.

The interesting thing about the current development of capitalism is that the old imperialists (the G7 countries) now need the approval of other, smaller countries. What to achieve?

To keep capitalism running around the world! – After the economic crisis of 2008 they are no longer so sure of their cause.

At this meeting, Merkel understood the growing rejection of the world against Trump as an opportunity to present herself as the “leader of the free world”; The media is involved. In the G20 summit she has proved that she is capable of forming coalitions against Trump.

No matter what we will read in the final declaration of the G20 summit, the informal alliance against Trump is on the road, and everyone knows that. The German-European breakthrough in world politics has begun.

I find it terrifying that the fate of this world will be left either to a paranoiac like Trump or a power hungry Chancellor like Merkel!






Serbia: Help Rescued Pozega Dogs Get Well After Their Hellhole Suffering.





After those celebrating moments when we had your breathtaking support and we were fighting together to save as many lives as possible, came the time when isolation period was over and the need for vaccinations, testings, spaying’s and neutering’s has started.

All 49 last saved  dogs plus almost 90 previously rescued are now ready for their first vaccination against infectious diseases and each every one of them needs 4D testings, ultra sounds, neutering’s and spaying’s.


Many of the dogs who were already brutally butchered with primitive surgery in the kill shelter, need their neuter and spaying redone properly. On the top of our worries, that time of year has come and many unspayed females are currently in the heat, which makes our kennels very hard to control – and males clash.


For Your kind donations, PayPal address: humanimalserbia@gmail.com  or  just click the PayPal button bellow:


The cost of each vaccine is 12.50 euros, the cost of each 4D test is 20 euros and the cost of reworking the tens of botched neutering and spayings varies from 25 euros up to 90 euros for some of the badly botched females to be redone and cleared of infections, plus 20 euros for previous ultra sounds.

It is a lot when numbers add. It is a lot for anyone to do this alone. But, we are not alone!


We are desperate to raise the funding now to continue with what needs to be done next. Can you help them go to their forever homes. Any donation, no matter how tiny, helps a dog in our care.

Greenpeace News – Campaign Victory !


Hi Mark, 

Together we took on the world’s largest tuna company and won!

With your help, we confronted Thai Union at sea, on land — in every continent it operates, and took the fight directly to its headquarters in Thailand as only Greenpeace can do.

This is good news for turtles and sharks, sea birds and tuna. It is also great for hundreds of thousands of workers at sea, many of whom have been victims of horrendous working conditions and human rights abuses.

You signed petitions, shared with your friends, and demanded that supermarkets carry better products, and it paid off.

Thai Union, the owner of global brands like Chicken of the Sea, Mareblu, Petit Navire, and Sealect, has committed to real changes that will help make its supply chains safer for both our oceans and workers at sea.

Thai Union now joins the likes of Greenseas and John West Australia as seafood companies that you’ve taken on and won against! 

This is a huge win for people power – but the fight doesn’t end today. While Thai Union’s commitments are substantial, we must keep the pressure on. We must monitor Thai Union’s progress to ensure compliance and we must expand this fight to the rest of the out-of-control seafood industry.

Here are three things you can do right now to help mark this momentous occasion:

  1. Share this video to show your friends and family what people power can do. 

  2. Chip in to help take the fight to the broader seafood industry and support all of our campaign work.

  3. Read and share our International Executive Director Bunny McDiarmid’s inspiring blog about how this moment was 10 years in the making.


Thanks to your hard work, Thai Union is going to reduce its dependence on fishing methods that kill sharks and turtles, scale up its reliance on more sustainable fishing methods, and work to ensure all vessels in its supply chains are living up to strict standards for workers.

Not only that, the company will increase transparency so you can find where tuna was caught and which fishing method was used. It will also allow for independent observers and auditing on its vessels to help address human rights abuse at sea.

These are major changes that set a new standard for the seafood industry. But it is up to us to demand that other companies act immediately. Can you help build on this momentum and support all of Greenpeace’s important work?


For far too long, the seafood industry has profited off destruction and human rights abuses. This victory shows that people power can change the biggest seafood companies, but we need to keep up the fight.

Your work got us this far. Let’s continue the fight to protect our oceans in the years to come. We are winning!

Global Seafood Markets Leader, Greenpeace

Austria: 7,000 Chickens – Innocent Victims Of Road Accident.

SAV Comment – Having been involved with live animal transport / export monitoring for over 25 years, we think it fair to say that we have noticed an excess amount of accidents involving animal transporters happen especially in Germany.  Why ? – long hours for drivers; having to get animals to the slaughterhouse ready for when they open in the morning ?  If we can track our past instances, then we will be adding these to this post at the end.


Thousand of chickens die, suffer or flee!

👉 PETA has filed a display against the driver!


Hi my dear Mark,

On Tuesday, July 4th there was an accident with a truck transport with 7,000 chickens on the autobahn in between Salzburg and Vienna.

The presumed cause: the driver is asleep !!!

Many of the animals died on the accident, others were running around, but most of them should be euthanized.

We can imagine how the animals were loaded when the number was 7,000!!!.

The organization PETA has created display against the driver. And I would also grant an indication against the morality of my fellow men, who ordered their roast chicken at the restaurant. For such accidents and victims are the direct guilty and the indirect guilty responsible!

The firefighters have complained that the other drivers on the highway did not want to leave a rescue zones. And there were also many scoundrels who just looked and did nothing!!

This made the rescue of the animals even more difficult.

Yes, of course! they are only chickens, they thought. If the victims were people?


Exactly on this question has answered Helmut.F.Kaplan, the well-known Austrian animal ethicist on his website following:

The Difference:

When people have an accident, the salvation comes.

When animals have an accident, the battle command comes.

With my best Regards to you and all


On July 6th, a truck transport with 150 pigs has also been tipped over. That was in northern Germany and the truck was on the way to the slaughterhouse, near Bremen.

Half of the animals died or were euthanized by veterinarians.



EU: Tin Pot God Junker Does NOTHING To Enforce Existing EU Legislation Despite What The Web Site Says !

UPDATE 7/7/17 – Donald Tusk now speaks weasel words also.

Donald Tusk at the G20 meeting in Germany today

words are easy but its actions that matter

Mr ‘action that matters’ – Donald Tusk


Very true Mr Tusk – you speak fine words about live animals shipped to Turkey being covered by Regulation 1/2005; but the reality is that you never enforce the rules.  You Mr Tusk, along with Junker, never actually take the actions that matter

Maybe that is why there are a lot of pissed off Europeans giving you and other idiots lots of trouble in Germany today !

Photo – EoA Netherlands



Please have a look at the following video and then read the comments from Venus.

The EU Parliament – elected by the people of Europe through the democratic process of elections.  The EU Commission, headed by Junker – the real decision making chamber of the EU though its un elected Commissioners – a non democratic process

Take live animal transport for example; the Parliament can vote and say that journey times must be reduced; but it is just one Commissioner who says there is no need and so nothing changes.  Over 700 MEPs can want for change, but if just one Commissioner opposes this view, then things remain unchanged as he wants.  Junker, the un elected ‘master’ of the Commission; the man who holds the keys to change but only on policy that he wants to change.  When it comes to animal welfare this is why we see no real change – Junker is not interested and so AW is thrown into the bin.


Junker – the almighty god of the EU Commission

If only the same could be done with un elected Junker

The UK is getting out of the EU (Brexit) because of these very such operating principles which give the people of the EU no real voice to change things.  UK / EU Brexit negotiations are currently under way for the UK to hopefully leave as a member within the next few years.

What are the other nations of Europe doing about the un elects running the show ? – well not a lot really.  They continue to sit under the control of un elected Commissioners headed by Junker; and like little mice, they continue to pay in their fees and do everything that the Commission demands of them.  One day when other EU nations have some guts, they will join up with the UK and send a clear message to Brussels that it is the few who are dictating to the very many citizens of the EU.




Mr President, you can criticize the parliament, but it is not up to the commission to control the parliament, it’s up to the parliament to control the commission,” Tajani said.

EU unsure – how nations feel about the ‘master’ EU


Dear Mark,

I sent you a very “pretty” Video from EU-Parmanent, which documents a meeting of the EU Parliament.
Home artist: Junker !!

I accompany this video with the following comment:

I agree with the President of the European Parliament, Tatjani, that Parliament controls the Commission and not the Commission the EU Parliament.

In addition, Juncker should note that the EU Parliament was elected by the EU citizen, but the Commission was not, so the Juncker himself was not elected by the people of Europe.
And before Juncker starts the sharp criticism against the EU Parliament, he should try to bring his stables, the (his) EU Commission, under control.

It is at least (and also) ridiculous, that an idle bunch of well-paid and nothing-doing servants of Merkel will do nothing against the suffering of millions of animals in the EU.
I find this not only ridiculous, I find it abominable and against any form of work ethic.


Best Regards to you and all




EU Commission link (Europa) – https://europa.eu/european-union/about-eu/institutions-bodies/european-commission_en


What does the Commission do ? – Allegedly they claim to:


Enforces EU law

·         Together with the Court of Justice, ensures that EU law is properly applied in all the member countries.

We think they must have missed the boat when it comes to enforcing EU animal transport legislation as defined in 1/2005 and as shown in the following videos.  This just proves that despite its ‘enforcement’ weasel words, the Commission actually does NOTHING to enforce EU law

The Commission is a joke, as is Junker.


Watch the videos in the following links to see just how ineffective Junker and his Commissioner gods are at allegedly enforcing EU law:


Warning – the following links contain video links to very disturbing animal abuse during transport:










Please do not tell me that people like Junker are ‘important’; he is ineffective and an utter tosser as the lack of enforcement of EU regulations above show.

Junker = Waste of space.

Germany: Environment Committee Decides In Paliament – There Will Be No Ban On Wild Animals Being Used In The Circus.


Environment committee decides in Parliament: No ban on wild animals in the circus


The hope of animal rights activists has thus shattered: There will be no ban on wild animals in the circus. Who voted against? Strong setback for animal friends: lion, elephant and zebra stay in the arena.

The environmental committee of the German parliament rejected yesterday the request of the left to ban wild animals from the circus. Despite the clear majority of the SPD, the Greens and the left in the committee, which all plead in their programs for a ban on wildlife, the application was rejected.

Surprisingly, the SPD (Social Democratic Party of Germany) voted against the ban. According to representative surveys, however, the majority of the population is behind a ban, as the animal protection organization “Animals United” confirms.

Now the association wants to mobilize more protests for an animal-free circus.

Viktor Gebhart of “Animals United”: “Especially from the SPD, which over the past years has repeatedly made a ban, the animal friends had expected more nationwide, but the SPD fell today in their back. That is an animal welfare scandal and a clear break with the party’s own conviction, which today had the power to put an end to animal cruelty in the Manege, “he says.

My comment to this:

And so we, who fight for the rights of the animals, are once again betrayed by politics.

The SPD with the party chairman, the illiterate Martin Schultz, has no chance in the next elections. But that will not help, because the CDU (the Conservatives) are not better and will remain in power.

In short: ideology and color in politics are different – at best – only when it comes to people. When it comes to animals, prevails unanimity in slavery, exploitation, and animal suffering!

Best Regards to you Dear Mark and all,




Here’s the list of countries that have implemented bans on circuses that use wild animals:

  • Austria

  • Bolivia

  • Bosnia and Herzegovina

  • Colombia

  • Costa Rica

  • Croatia

  • Cyprus

  • El Salvador

  • Greece

  • Israel

  • Malta

  • Mexico

  • The Netherlands

  • Paraguay

  • Peru

  • Romania

  • Singapore

  • Slovenia

These countries are really showing Germany and the UK up with their progressive, compassionate policies.

Please look long and hard at the photos – I see them for the natural beauty that they have which is presented to me – homes to wolves, coyotes and so many other plants and animals that deserve our help and protection.

The USA must welcome visitors to such places and the beauty that they hold, and not let a few madmen destroy these places forever in order to make a quick buck.  The good folk of America need to make a stand against these proposed actions; for once it is gone, it can never be replaced.

Enjoy – Mark.

England: Latest ‘Fur News’ From ‘Respect for Animals’.

Latest ‘fur news’ from Mark and the crew at ‘Respect for Animals’, Nottingham, England.



Probably unlikely, but we are taking measures in advance:

This year nearly 80,000 seal pups, less than 3 months old, were brutally clubbed or shot for their fur. Worryingly in the UK, there is a risk that seal product imports could resume once we leave the EU.

Respect for Animals is asking the government to guarantee that this import ban will remain in force.

Oxford Summer School

Top academics and campaigners from around the world are descending on Oxford from 23-26 July to discuss the ethics of the fur trade.

Sponsored by the Respect for Animals Educational trust, it will result in a new up to date and authoritative report intended to transform the debate around wearing fur.

Click here for more details and to book your place.


Good News from Germany

Germany’s last fur farm will close down with a new Bill enforcing stricter regulations and effectively make fur farming of mink non-viable for farmers.


Thank you Germany.


Fur Farming In Europe

The fur farming ban has been effective in the UK for over 15 years now.

We were proud to have led that campaign and many of you helped make it possible.  today, we use our experience and campaigning record to support campaigns in countries around the world where similar bans are being proposed and who look to the UK as an example to be followed.

It takes up to 40 dumb animals to make a fur coat


Fur is for animals.

South Korea: 27/6/17 – Further News And Actions.

Click HERE to see this newsletter from our homepage.​

KARA discloses results of their investigation of ‘meat dog farms’ at press conference. Translation complete.

KARA Press release video:


This is translation of Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA)’s post. In an era when 10 million dogs are considered companion animals, more than one million are being slaughtered every year at 3,000 of the “world’s only meat dog farms.”

It would not be an exaggeration to call these meat dog farms “companion animal slaughterhouses.” These statistics, however, may be low and the breeding environment and slaughtering process of dogs is unregulated.

While dog meat consumption still exists in countries like China and Vietnam, South Korea is the only country with farms that breed dogs continually, and where large farms housing more than 1,000 dogs are in operation for the purpose of human consumption.

These animals are confined their entire lives to tiny steel raised wire cages before they are slaughtered and eaten. To gain an understanding of the meat dog farms that operate in the darkness of no governmental regulation, Representative Lee Jeong-Mi of the Justice Party and animal rights group Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA; Im Soon-Lye, director) requested data from the Ministry of Environment on dog farms that are required to submit reports for the livestock manure treatment facility and conducted analysis.

Based on this data, KARA conducted field investigations in sample areas including Gyeonggi-do Gimpo and Yeoju, Gangwon-do Wonju, Gyeongsangbuk-do Gimcheon for 10 months beginning August 2016 and inspected the state of the breeding conditions and livestock manure treatment status of these dog farms.


As a result, it was confirmed that there are at least 2,862 dog farms in South Korea that are over 60 square meters and therefore are required to file livestock manure treatment facility reports. At least 781,740 dogs were being bred on these dog farms, with an average of 273 dogs per farm.

SAV Comment – we do not have any more details other than those on the petition – which does not give that much of a story.  Probably this lady is protecting strays and the government wants to kill them ?

Petition words:

For over 15 years this English woman called Janet has been saving these beautiful Egyptian dogs. She donated her life to this.

Janet, an English lady has committed her life to the street animals, especially dogs, in the town.
this page was formed to support her in supporting the street animals.

life on the streets is harsh and short, and for most dogs, and many cats, ends horrifically by poison or torture

Janet’s dream is for there to be no poisoned animals,
which means there should be no poison! To achieve this needs no dogs, or at least less street/feral dogs and cats, with protection for those that remain and for the foxes too.
sterilization, education, re-homing, a shelter for the homeless, negotiation with the local council, banning possession of poisons should lead to the end of poison in our town and a more pleasant life for it’s animals, residents and tourists,

USA: Bears Suffering at Wilson’s Wild Animal Park—a Roadside Zoo in Winchester, Virginia. Please Take Action Now.


Help Bears Suffering in the Heat at Wilson’s Wild Animal Park



Bears at Wilson’s Wild Animal Park—a roadside zoo in Winchester, Virginia—are confined to a concrete-floored cage, and their water trough is typically empty, leaving them with no means of cooling off during sweltering weather. We need your help to protect these bears from rising temperatures.

PETA recently sent complaints to local, state, and federal authorities requesting that they take action on apparent animal suffering at the roadside zoo, including bears who were seen panting with no means of escaping the heat. One bear was eating water- and urine-soaked food, and another repeatedly paced inside the small, barren enclosure—a sign of severe psychological distress.

The roadside zoo has been repeatedly cited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for failing to meet the minimum requirements of the federal Animal Welfare Act. The violations include inadequate caging for dangerous animals, a lack of a veterinary-care program, and failing to provide primates with adequate enrichment. Eyewitnesses also recently observed deer panting in the heat, a goat with nasal discharge, an alpaca with overgrown nails, lynxes and a lion cub confined to enclosures on concrete slabs, a lynx repeatedly pacing, and birds with apparent injuries and missing feathers.

Please urge Wilson’s Wild Animal Park to provide these bears with at least natural terrain and an adequate pool to escape the heat and to consider retiring them to a reputable sanctuary.

Please take action for the bears using the link given above – thank you.

Give Us This Day Our Daily ……….. Bread ?

Hello Mark,
I send you the promised article about meat eating.
I have been inspired by the beautiful photo exhibition in Berlin, I have seen the topic from a different perspective!
Best regards



This photo, taken in 1963, was especially noticeable from me at a photo exhibition in Berlin.

Yes! So we always asked at the table at home: “Give us our daily bread today, Lord!”
The word “bread” was symbolic, in fact meat was mostly eaten.
Today, as then, we look at the corpses that are served on our table as the right food.
We prefer the clubs, the ribs, the bellies, the breast parts of massacred animals as our daily bread.

The meat industry, today as then, is particularly concerned with advertising on meat.
The turkey, the pig, the rabbit are nicely done and deliciously served in everyday life as in festivals.
But the greatest effort of the meat industry is that the life, the misery, the production of these animals remain invisible at all.

Even more invisible is the fact that the body of a turkey is actually the body of a child who dies of hunger because we want to have our daily flesh here.

“A child who dies of hunger today is murdered”, said Jean Ziegler.

By whom murdered?
By all who are involved in this system.
Because tragically, a large portion of the world’s food and land is used to produce cattle and other farm animals and as a food for the rich, at the same time 43,000 children die daily of hunger in the Third World.

We cannot say today, we do not know where the “daily bread” comes to our table.

And when some naive still pray to the god that their plates are filled with corpses every day, their morals and consciences have long since sold to the God of the meat-mafia.


Best regards to all

Denmark / Faroe Islands: Nothing Changes After Our Actions 27 Years Ago !


It seems like a lifetime – Joanne, Mark and Trevor were out campaigning about this slaughter back around 19990 / 91.  Very sadly, in this modern age, it still continues, some 27 years or so after they hit the streets.

See more and a photo on ‘About Us’ – https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/about-us/  –  ‘Superstore Protestors Seek End To Slaughter’.  Just below the pictures of Joanne.

Sea turns red as 200 whales massacred by Faroe Islanders in annual ritual


Animal rights groups say that the hunting method, known locally as ‘Grindarap’, must end.


Animal rights campaigners have reported details of the the latest Grindarap – an annual event in the Faroe Islands where locals round up and massacre huge families of whales.

The sea turned red as the blood of an estimated 150-200 mammals were sliced to death by hunters from the Danish islands, located in the Norwegian Sea.

The Grindarap is believed to date back as far as 1584. It is a method of whaling that drives entire pods of whales and dolphins towards beaches by trapping them with small boats and missiles.

The prey, typically short-finned pilot whales migrating through the Norwegian Sea in the summer, are then set upon other hunters armed with knives and lances.

There are usually a series of hunts in close succession to one another at this time of year. The whale meat is eaten by locals.

Various campaign groups have demanded that the practice, which is legal, be stamped out.

“The animals slowly bleed to death. Whole families are slaughtered, and some whales swim around in their family members’ blood for hours.

“Whales and dolphins are highly intelligent creatures and feel pain and fear every bit as much as we do,” PETA said.



Serbia: Argos’ Sigh Could Not Be Saved – Now He Needs Donations To Keep Him Secure At Felix Shelter. Thank You.


We had never thought that such a little creature could steal our hearts in just a matter of days. Last Wednesday, our friends from Anima informed us that they had been contacted by a family that wished to give Argos up for adoption, as they couldn’t take care of him anymore. And it wouldn’t have been a problem as all of us are used to receiving numerous appeals for help of the kind, if Argos hadn’t been completely blind. The only reason that Anima reached to us is that blind cats need to live in a controlled environment, for the sake of their own safety.

During the first conversation with his owners/caretakers, we found out that he was a young stray living on the streets until he got hit by a car approximately a month ago, so they picked him up and took him to the local vet. They live in a small city and the vet in question didn’t seem to be very interested in an injured stray. Argos received just minimal treatment that helped stabilize him, but nothing more, so he arrived at the shelter on Thursday and was immediately taken to our vet.


He tested negative for FIV/FeLV and his blood work was more or less normal, except for his eosinophils which were low, the vet suspected he has a parasitosis, so Argos was dewormed and deflead right away. Unfortunately, he still has a cerebral contusion and huge hematomas behind his eyes. His lower jaw was broken and is currently healing on its own, so right now he can eat only liquid food and soft cat pate’. He is under aggressive treatment because of his brain edema and is being given injections every day plus two different kinds of eye drops as a topical treatment. Sadly, his eyesight has been lost forever. Had the local vet who treated Argos right after his injury done something, anything, to try and reduce his brain edema and had he been able to at least begin solving some of the numerous problems this lovely kitty boy had at the time, Argos would have had at least some chances to see again one day – but as the vet failed, Argos will remain blind for the rest of his life.


Nevertheless, he is still cheerful, lively and enjoys eating Gourmet cat pate’ and kibble for baby cats, as it’s easier on his broken jaw. He’s gotten accustomed perfectly to his new surroundings and we are almost certain he’ll soon be having fun with all of the shelter kitties. But until he recovers, he needs to spend most of his time in a cage so that he heals well, he is being taken to the vet every day and is regularly receiving vitamins and supplements to boost his immune system. As soon as he gets strong enough, he will be vaccinated, microchipped and neutered and he will finally become an owned cat.

If someone wishes to donate diapers, cat pate’, sauce/gravy and cat litter or to make a financial contribution towards this sweet little creature’s recovery, he will be extremely grateful! We are sorry you can’t see Argos purring and cuddling, as he would surely melt your hearts!!

Welcome to the shelter, adorable Argos!

England: 21/6/2017 – Midsummers Day Sunrise – A Perfect At Neolithic Stonehenge.






Fittingly, today, 21st June 2017 is going to be probably the hottest midsummer day for around 40 years.  Huge crowds gathered at Stonehenge to welcome the Summer sun rising on the morning of 21st.  Stonehenge is considered to be a very special place for midsummer – The Neolithic monument is widely believed to be a prehistoric temple built to mark the movements of the sun, according to English Heritage. The heel stone and slaughter stones at the site are aligned with sunrise on summer solstice.

Even in midsummer the UK is often swamped in rain and the sunrise is not seen at Stonehenge.  But this year it has been perfect as you can see from some of the photos.

The summer solstice occurs around the 21 June in the northern hemisphere and is the time when then sun reaches its highest point of the year at the Tropic of Cancer, resulting in the longest day.

This year the summer solstice will see the UK bathed in sunlight for around 16 hours and 38 minutes on Wednesday 21

Why is the summer solstice seen as special?

‘Solstice’ comes from the Latin, ‘solstitium’, meaning the stopping or standing still of the sun, and marks the first day of summer.

The summer solstice is marked with a number of festivals, feasts and rituals across different faiths, and strongly associated with fertility, growth and light.

The Christian feast day of St John the Baptist occurs within days of the solstice, while in ancient China, the solstice was associated with Li, the goddess of light.

The day is perhaps most strongly linked with pagans, who used it as a marker for planting and harvesting crops. It also marked the union of the pagan god and goddess, which was believed to create the harvest’s fruits, the BBC reports. 

Why is Stonehenge significant to the summer solstice?

Thousands of people descend on the ancient religious site of Stonehenge in Wiltshire each year to see the sun rise on the summer solstice, with many dressed in flower garlands or druids’ robes.

The Neolithic monument is widely believed to be a prehistoric temple built to mark the movements of the sun, according to English Heritage. The heel stone and slaughter stones at the site are aligned with sunrise on summer solstice.

China: 20/6/17 – Festival Starts, But Dog Meat Sales Are Greatly Affected. Not Perfect, But ……….

Crackdown At Yulin Dog Meat Festival As Police Shut Down Stalls


The festival is going ahead – but law enforcement agencies are trying to uphold sales restriction.

A video showing police shutting down dog meat stalls at the controversial Yulin festival is being shared by activists and animal welfare charities.

More than 10 million dogs and 4 million cats are reportedly killed every year for human consumption in China, but the practice is becoming increasingly polarized, with many young people strongly opposed to it.

The last few weeks has seen lots of information emerging around the festival, with reports released that the festival itself had been cancelled – though these were later disputed, with Jason Baker, Vice President of International Campaigns at PETA, saying: “We have spoken with several people working within the mayor’s office, the food and drug administration and the municipal building and no one seems aware of a Yulin festival ban.”

These rumors were possibly the result of news that Yulin city was going to ban the sale of dog meat during the event. The ban, which was set to come into force on June 15 (one week before the festival begins on June 23) would see traders risk arrest and a fine of up to $14,500 if caught selling the contraband meat.

The ban was credited to Yulin’s newly appointed Party Secretary Mo Gong Ming.


Now according Humane Society International [HSI], a last-minute compromise deal was recently reached between angry dog meat vendors and the Yulin authorities, whereby vendors are permitted to sell dog meat, but are limited to two dog carcasses per stand – a dramatic reduction for most vendors.

But HSI’s Chinese partners claim to have seen a number of dog meat traders selling in quantities they believed was violation of the order. They reported the activity to the authorities in Yulin. This was then followed by a crackdown whereby the traders were told to close down their stands.

HSI’s Chinese activist partner, Sean Long, said: “It doesn’t look like business as usual at Dongkou market in Yulin. It’s disappointing to see dog meat still on sale, but nothing like the amount we’ve seen in the past.


“Business was slow at the market, with far fewer buyers. Some vendors we spoke with said they believed they were allowed to sell dog meat again, and hinted that some kind of concession had been gained from the authorities just in the last couple of days. 

“However, other vendors expressed doubt that they would be allowed to continue selling dog meat for long and said that there was so much genuine uncertainty that they had decided not to order more dogs in case they can’t sell them.”


Enforcing the ban

HSI’s partner groups are also reporting that the Yulin police department has set up a temporary office in the main Dongkou market for daily inspections to enforce the order, and so HSI would encourage Chinese activists on the ground to swiftly report any violations they see. 

These partner groups will continue to monitor the situation and assist the Yulin police in taking action against dog meat vendors who violate the order.

Dr Peter Li, HSI’s China policy specialist, said: “It is encouraging to see the Yulin authorities enforcing  the compromise ban that they themselves struck with Yulin officials. It shows that while the restricted sales order is by no means perfect, it is absolutely having an impact and Yulin law enforcement want to be seen to be taking it seriously. 

“Our Chinese partners share the frustration of animal campaigners around the world that change in Yulin is a long time coming, but they are keen for this video to go viral so that people can see that progress is being made and the dog traders are definitely feeling the pressure. 

“This kind of crackdown is certainly causing vendors to hold off buying more dogs, and word is spreading.”

Irish Farmers – Money Before Animal Welfare.

SAV Comment – We all know from ‘Eyes on Animals’ investigations how cattle are slaughtered in Turkey.  Pity the Irish Farmers Association does not get off its money laden backside and go see exactly how ‘their’ animals are killed.  But they wont cos all they are interested in is Money !

Info supplied by export hero Jane.

Further contracts to ship Irish cattle to Turkey expected
7:00 am – June 19, 2017

Further contracts to ship Irish cattle to Turkey expected

Irish suckler farmers are holding on to the hope that further contracts, which would see more Irish cattle being shipped to Turkey, will be agreed this year.

The Turkish market has grown in importance since the first boatload of Irish animals departed for the Middle Eastern market back in the autumn of 2016.

Since the market opened to Irish cattle, some seven boatloads have departed Irish shores. The latest consignment was organised by the Waterford-based exporting company Purcell Brothers.

The exporting company has sent two boatloads of cattle to Turkey this year as part of a 20,000-head contract.

Last year, Viastar shipped more than 19,000 cattle to Turkey. The four shipments included both finished and weanling bulls. In a separate deal, earlier this year another Irish exporter also sent a consignment of 1,564 Irish heifers to Turkey.

And hopes are growing that similar contracts could be agreed this year.

In a statement last week, the Irish Farmers Association (IFA) said exports to Turkey are very strong and it is expected that there will be further contracts as the year progresses.

Nearly 27,000 head of Irish cattle have now been exported to Turkey. And the added competition from exporters is having a positive impact on cattle prices in numerous marts throughout the country.

IFA National Livestock Chairman, Angus Woods, said lighter carcass weights and a strong live export trade will help to negate the impact of higher numbers for the second half of the year.

Predictions suggest that 100,000 extra cattle will be slaughtered in Ireland this year and supplies have climbed by 27,000 head above 2016 levels already this year.

In addition, Woods said, live exports have been very strong this year and are up 35,000 head to reach 116,000. Over 90,000 calves have been exported from Ireland this year, he added.

UK: Hunting Animals Was A Major Factor At The Recent UK General Election. The Public Do NOT Want It Back.

Posted 14th June, 2017

Updated: 15th June, 2017

Author: Eduardo Gonçalves

Elections can be curious affairs. For political junkies, the polling, the projections, and the posturing are their bread and butter – but away from that there is something much deeper. Elections have a way of distilling how a nation feels and what it values.

This was supposed to be the Brexit election, but in the end, that wasn’t a major issue. To everyone’s surprise, it was usurped by a different issue: hunting.

In Conservative manifestos past, the party has committed a free vote on repeal of the Hunting Act. Previously, when only a handful of Conservative MPs supported the ban, this was barely commented on. But we know that prior to this election, more than 50 Conservative MPs supported the ban. More than that, we know that the vast majority of the British public support the ban. So it came as something of a surprise when Theresa May affirmed her own support for hunting, and a repeal of the Hunting Act. What happened next was little short of remarkable.

Like never before, fox hunting became an election issue.

That’s not my just view. Buzzfeed analysed what was being shared online during the campaign. Throughout the campaign, hunting was the fourth most-shared topic, ahead of Brexit. It wasn’t just online that it was making a stir, either. BritainThinks ran focus groups with swing voters in marginal constituencies. After social care, the most commonly mentioned manifesto commitment was the Hunting Act. YouGov said that the words brought up most during the campaign were “social care” and “fox hunting”.

Candidates – both Labour and Conservative – spoke time and time again about how fox hunting repeatedly came up on the doorsteps. Conservative MP Sarah Wollaston said Theresa May’s comments on hunting were a “turning point” in the campaign. Another Conservative MP, Michael Fabricant, said that raising the issue was “very foolish”. The victorious Labour candidate in Canterbury – held by the Conservatives for decades – said it was fox hunting that swung it.

Jim Waterson, Political Editor at Buzzfeed, tweeted that “Anecdotally and based on our most-shared data, I really think fox hunting (& ivory ban) cost the Tories some marginal seats”.

At the same time all this was going on, League Against Cruel Sports supporters were contacting their local candidates as part of the Votes for Vinny campaign. Tens of thousands of emails were sent, and in the days before polling day, thousands of people logged in to the League website to see how their candidates responded to the pledges.

Clearly, hunting is not a party political issue. No party has a monopoly on compassion. Along with those many anti-hunting Conservative MPs, over 70% of Conservative voters support the ban on hunting. Party colour was not the vote loser here – the misjudgement was pandering to a vocal minority who want to see a return to a more ignorant time.

Vinny himself was in cities across Britain, spreading the word about animal cruelty. Candidates from all parties contacted their constituents – and us at the League – to say that they opposed repeal. In the final two weeks of the campaign, an additional 30 Conservative candidates, almost all of whom were elected, said that they would vote against repeal.

So, where do we stand now? Well, it is very difficult to see a repeal vote on the Hunting Act being passed. Former Conservative Party Chairman Grant Shapps says it “stands absolutely no chance” of repeal.

Despite the Conservatives losing seats, the number of Conservative MPs supporting the Hunting Act has increased, and is possibly as high as one third of MPs. The election has made clear how unpopular – not to mention politically toxic – the idea of repeal is.

Yet there is more work to do. The Brexit process may open the door to weakened environmental and animal welfare legislation. That must be stopped. In the last Parliament, good progress was made towards tougher sentencing for animal cruelty. That must be seen through. It is not just politicians that should now be left in no doubt as to how unpopular hunting is. In a couple of months, ‘cub hunting’ – the illegal slaughter of fox cubs – will begin again, and hunting continues under the false alibi of “trail hunting”. Public bodies like the National Trust, the Forestry Commission, and the Ministry of Defence continue to allow this on their land. The British public do not tolerate animal cruelty, and neither should those organisations.

With a hung Parliament, the election may have had an indecisive outcome, but in another way, it was utterly decisive. The idea that the Hunting Act should be repealed has been roundly rejected and the hope now is that we can move on from any notion of repeal or weakening.

The British public believes in compassion and they believe that animals should be protected from persecution. Politicians surely now accept that. It must be time, therefore, that we seek to strengthen and extend those protections.
