GERMAN

Sehr geehrte Bürger der Republik Serbien,

Am Moment findet auf der serbischen Szene, im größten Amphitheater unter dem klaren Himmel, die zweimonatige Vorstellung statt, unter dem Namen „Wahlkampagne“.

„Die Wahlkampagne” ist ein Ambiente, in dem die Nation oder die menschliche Gemeinschaft ihren Intellekt, ihre Kenntnis und Erinnerung benutzen kann… oder sie hat nichts zu benutzen.

Das ist ein Ambiente, in dem ein Teil der Bürger über das Schicksal des Rests der Bürger der Republik Serbien entscheidet.

Das ist eine Vorstellung, die von psychologischen Propagandastäben geführt wird. Um sich selbst zu verwirklichen, benutzen sie Elektronik, Bytes, Bits und besonder den Mangel des Intellekts und das Vergessen der Nation.

Sehr geehrte Bürger mit dem Stimmrecht,

Wir wenden uns an sie im Namen der Bürger, die kein Stimmrecht haben und in der Hauptstadt Belgrad wohnen.

Sie sind unsere Mitbürger, unsere besten Freunde, das sind Hunde und Katzen.

Als die vernünftigen Wesen müssen wir, die Belgrader Städter, im Namen der Hunde und Katzen, die im Konzentrationslager „Kafillerie-Ovča“ bis zum 2009 getötet sind (im Durchschnitt von 7,000 bis 10,000 pro Jahr http://www.helpanimals.org.rs/index.php/action/index/srp/17/ ), nicht vergessen, wer die jahrelange Praxis des Tötens der Hunde und Katzen, die das Problem der „Streuner“ lösen sollte, verboten hat.

Das Töten der Hunde und Katzen wurde von unserem gegenwärtigen Bürgermeister Herr Dragan Djilas verboten. So wurde Belgrad eine der nur wenigen Städter in Europa und in der ganzen Welt, wo das Töten der Hunde und Katzen, um das Problem der „Streuner“ zu lösen, verboten ist.

Diejenigen, die das in dieser Vorstellung der „Wahlkampagne” vergessen, weil sie nur an ihre persönliche Verwirklichung denken und dabei lügen, treffen sie sich in der Zukunft mit dem Teufel.

„Bewahren wir Djilas!“, er ist das Pfand für die Leben der Hunde und Katzen und in seinem nächsten Mandat löst er auch das Problem aller anderen misshandelnden Tiere, die wir auf den Strassen der Belgrad treffen.

SERBIAN

Poštovani Gradjani Srbije sa pravom glasa,

Na sceni Srbije trenutno se odigrava dvomesečna predstava u najvećem mogućem amfiteatru pod vedrim nebom pod nazivom „Izborna kampanja“.
„Izborna kampanja“ je ambijent u kojem nacija ili ljudska zajednica zarad svoje bolje budućnosti može koristiti svoj intelekt, znanje i sećanje, ili … nema šta koristiti.

To je ambijent u kojem jedan deo zemljana odlučuje o sudbini ostatka zemljana na prostoru Srbije.
To je predstava koju režiraju  „psihološko-propagandni štabovi“ koristeći elektroniku, bitove, bajtove, a naročito koristeći nedostatak intelekta i zaborav nacije, za potrebe ličnog samoostvarenja.

Poštovani Gradjani sa pravom glasa, obraćamo vam se u ime dela zemljana koji nemaju pravo glasa i to delu zemljana koji žive na prostoru Prestonice Srbije – Beogradu.
To su naši sugradjani, naši najbolji prijatelji, to su psi i mačke.

Kao „misleći zemljani“ mi gradjani Beograda u ime miliona oduzetih života (u proseku od 7000-10000 godišnje)pasa i mačaka u konc logoru „Kafilerija-Ovča“ do 2009. godine (http://www.helpanimals.org.rs/index.php/action/index/srp/17/), ni jednog momenta ne smemo zaboraviti ko je zabranio višedecenijsku praksu ubijanja pasa i mačaka zarad rešavanja problema „lutalica“.

Ubijanje pasa i mačaka zabranio je sadašnji Gradonačelnik Beograda g. Dragan Djilas. Tako je Beograd postao jedan od samo nekoliko gradova u Evropi, i šire, u kojem je zabranjeno ubijanje pasa i mačaka kao način rešavanja problema „lutalica“.

Oni koji u predstavi „Izborne kampanje“ to zaborave vodeći se ličnim samoostvarenjem i koristeći se neistinom, u budućnosti će se nositi sa djavolom.

„Sačuvajmo Djilasa“, on je zalog za živote pasa i mačaka, a u sledećem mandatu rešiće i problem ostalih zlostavljanih životinja koje srećemo na ulicama Beograda.

Dear citizens of Serbia,

The two-month performance at the biggest possible amphitheatre called the “election campaign” is currently taking place in Serbia.
The election campaign is a performance directed by self-interested parties who use modern technology in order to manipulate those who are less informed and politically savvy.

Dear voters, we are addressing you on behalf of those who do not have a say in the elections – our loyal and trusting friends – dogs and cats.

In the name of millions of dogs and cats killed (7000-10000 every year) in the killing station Ovcha until 2009 (http://www.helpanimals.org.rs/index.php/action/index/srp/17/), please remember the one person who fought on their behalf and banned the long-standing practice of catching and brutally killing stray animals.
Please remember that it was Mr Dragan Djilas, the mayor of Belgrade who banned the killing of dog and cats and by doing so Belgrade became one of only a few cities in Europe and beyond where it is against the law to kill stray animals.
Those who pursue their personal agendas and use lies to achieve their goals in the election campaign will have the devil to pay.

‘Save Djilas’, he pledged the life of dogs and cats and in his next mandate he will solve the problem of other abused animals that we so often meet on the streets of Belgrade.

Bulgaria: 50 NGO’s Demand Minister Naydenov’s Resignation.

50 NGO’s demand Minister Naydenov’s resignation

Posted on 09 April 2012 в News

 50 Animal Wellfare NGO’s from Bulgaria, Holland, Germany and Switzerland want the resignation of Bulgarian Minister of Agriculture Miroslav Naydenov on account of “years of institutional languid attempts and lack of control” regarding the stray-dog issue.

In an open letter to the Prime Minister, the Presindent and the Ombudsman the Organizations want a Nation-wide Trap, Neuter & Return Program, as recommended by world-renown experts and the World Health Organization.

OPEN LETTER

Miroslav Naydenov,
Minister of agriculture and foods

COPY TO:

Dear doctor Naydenov,

as people who are directly engaged with the stay dog problem we believe that your position on radical legislation changes aims to distract the public attention from the true origins of the problem.

We also believe that you are the one responsible for the long years of institutional languid attempts and lack of control in enforcing the current stray dog legislation.

For having 47% of the echinococcal disease of the EU here in Bulgaria – not in the cities where the stray dog population is the largest, but in rural areas where your National Food Safety Agency has zero control over the illegitimate cultivation, butchering and consumption of meat-producing animals;

For refusing to work with experts and relying on populist and ineffective methods to solve the stray dog problem – thus increasing both corruption in the related authorities and risk to the health of the citizens;

For having assimilated formidable amounts of money for the non-existent pet dog registry database, which should have been finished by the National Food Safety Agency back in 2008 and is still unusable;

For not punishing one single person for abandoning their pet since the Animal Protection Act is in force – from 2008;

For the fact that the Ministry of Agriculture neglects the recommendations both of the European Parliament and the World Health Organization on Trap, Neuter & Return as an only effective long-term way to solve a stray dog situation that also benefits public health;

For not being at all concerned with the recommendations of the world-renown experts (invited to Bulgaria in 2010 by the Ministry itself) who suggested Bulgaria needs a National strategy on the issue. That is to say: Trap, Neuter & Return on a national level, coordinated by the central government and executed in a military manner in all Bulgarian municipalities;

For having neglected the ombudsman’s standpoint on the issue. Mr. Konstantine Penchev sent his advice back in the beginning of 2011, insisting that the Ministry of Agriculture should be the one to lead a National Strategy: to help the municipalities by  providing funds, legislation and coordinating a nation-wide Trap, Neuter & Return program;

For refusing a public-private partnership on the issue, despite the many recommendations and good practices of the EU, and even rushing a bill through so that the NGO’s are excluded from the process;

For deceiving the public as a veterinarian and a Minister in order to increase the tension in society, polarize opinions on the issue in order to avoid a constructive dialog and analysis of the weak, unmethodical and corrupt work of the municipalities and the ministry on the problem;

We expect you to take up your political responsibility and resign as Minister of Agriculture and Foods.

We remain open to a dialog.
