LONDON – Anti Hunt March / Demo. 29/5/17 – Bank Holiday Monday. Post Machester Bombings; Security Is Very High. Take Note Of General Rules Below.

ENJOY THE MARCH / DEMO, BUT TAKE NOTE THAT AFTER THE BOMBINGS IN MANCHESTER earlier this week, public events security is massive – military and police.  Help to make it go well by adhering to a few rules – enjoy but make it safe.

We have a proud democracy here in the UK – this event could easily have been stopped by the police after recent events; but we are allowed to continue.  Follow the rules – don’t give the pro hunters anything to use against us antis – they would love that.  Follow the simple rules and keep it safe – SAV.

 

 

As far as we know, the London anti hunt march is STILL ON – Bank Holiday Monday.

Police and military will be on patrol over the City – so make it all go as good as it could.

Because of the terrible Manchester events earlier this week, security is obviously higher.  The UK is at its highest security level post Manchester bombings – so please help to make life easier for all military security and police concerned.

The following has been put out – please take note of what it says.

“MARCH/DEMO GOING AHEAD.

The police have confirmed they will be bringing sniffer dogs into the crowd at the start of the anti hunt protest on Bank Holiday Monday.

The dogs will be searching for explosive devices this is a precaution being used for all public events under the heightened security threat.

The police are also asking all attendees not to bring flares to the protest. These have been used at anti hunt protests in the past, but anyone letting off a flare or attempting to throw one will be putting themselves and other people at risk.

Any loud bangs or smoke could lead to panic by the wider public and a reaction by armed police or soldiers along our march route.

Can I therefore call on everyone attending the march to please not bring any flares with them.”

UK: Conservatives To U Turn On Ivory Ban – Please Take Action Before the 8th June Election.

 

SAV Comment – Typical Tory elite getting what they want and to hell with the rest of the people.  Don’t vote Conservative on 8th June if you support animal welfare – the Tories just want to destroy everything – and bringing back hunting is just one other example.  Disgusting Party – Disgusting People.

Theresa May – HONOUR The Conservative PLEDGE To End The UK Ivory Trade

Under David Cameron the Conservatives had pledged – along with other UK political parties – to put into place a ban on ivory trading. This follows bans by China, the US and other important ivory trading countries to end domestic trades in ivory by the end of 2017.

But there is no mention of the ban in Theresa May’s Conservative 2017 manifesto. Sneakily,

the Conservatives have decided to DROP their previous commitment to introducing a total ban on ivory trade in Britain. This comes after heavy pressure from wealthy antiques traders who have been lobbying Theresa May hard to drop the ban on ivory.

The most powerful UK antique traders association is the British Antique Dealers’ Association – whose president is Conservative MP and friend of Theresa May, Lady Victoria Borwick.

On average, an Elephant is killed every 15 minutes for its ivory and their population has fallen by almost a third in Africa since 2007.

Interestingly, this policy puts the Conservatives in direct conflict with Prince William, who has been a vocal supporter of a total ban on ivory sales.

 

Please sign the petition and URGE Theresa May to HONOUR their earlier pledge to ban the UK ivory trade.

England: Chelsea Flower Show – Including A Horse Garden.

 

26/5/17 – Breaking News – WHW wins the ‘People’s Choice Award’ at the show – excellent !

See a few celebrities at the garden in the following video:

 

Well its Chelsea Flower Show week again here in ol’ London town.

 

Here are a few links relating to this years show; including a garden representing world horse welfare – and the saving of abused horses.  A sculptor has made a life size horse using horseshoes – and it is amazing as you can see in the photos.  It was inspired by a horse named ‘Clippy’ – which was rescued.

 

The horse garden includes plants like ragwort – it is an educational garden to inform the public about what plants are harmful to horses, and what ones are good for them.

In a new video for PETA, the cricketer reveals the documentary that made him go vegan – Earthlings – and shares his thoughts on the rise of the “meat-free athlete”:

 

Athletes are increasingly coming to the correct conclusion that you can get all the nutrients you need from a whole-food plant-based diet, and they’re recovering better, they’re feeling good, they’re feeling fit and strong.

There’s nothing macho about treating animals terribly, and there’s nothing macho about putting your health at risk. There’s nothing macho about polluting the Earth. We’re all here on this one marble, and we just got to work together.

 

India: Urge India to Close Facilities That Drain Blood From Horses and Donkeys.

 

Urge India to Close Facilities That Drain Blood From Horses and Donkeys

These cruel equine-serum facilities keep animals in barren, crowded sheds and extract large amounts of blood from them to manufacture drugs.

In 2015, veterinarians and a scientist from PETA India, as well as other experts, inspected ten facilities that produce antitoxins and antivenins.

With the exception of one that outsources its work, all the facilities extract large volumes of blood from horses, donkeys, or mules. The inspectors documented many distressing problems, including the following:

·         Animals were suffering from anaemia, bleeding and infected wounds, and other serious health problems.

·         Other common physical problems included diseased hooves, malnourishment, infections, parasites, swollen limbs, abnormal gaits, and eye conditions, such as blindness.

·         The facilities often used painfully large needles in order to collect blood more quickly.

·         Many horses were fearful and anxious and struggled to get away when approached by humans.

·         Animals were typically kept in crowded, barren paddocks and often tied with ropes that severely limited their movement.

·         Many were forced to stand and lie in their own urine and faeces, and some suffered from “capped elbow”, a painful inflammation and swelling of the joint caused by lying on hard floors.

·         Basic husbandry procedures such as dental care and hoof trimming appeared to be ignored, and improper tools were used for grooming.

·         There were numerous apparent violations of laws and guidelines, such as the failure of facilities to be registered to conduct these procedures on animals.

Indian law requires people who are responsible for animals to take all reasonable measures to ensure their well-being and to prevent unnecessary pain or suffering – in stark contrast to the abuse and neglect documented at these facilities.

 

Please speak out for these animals! Ask Indian authorities to close these cruel facilities
