category national | animal rights | opinion/analysis author Sunday April 20, 2014 18:36author by End Bloodsports in Ireland Report this post to the editors

When: Friday, 16th May 2014 from 12 midday to 2pm
Where: Outside the Dame Street entrance to Dublin Castle

Fox dig outs are cruel beyond belief
Fox dig outs are cruel beyond belief

On Friday 16th May, Minister for Agriculture, Simon Coveney will host an animal welfare conference in Dublin Castle to explain the contents of the new Animal Welfare Act, which has recently come into law.

To coincide with this PR stunt, a number of animal protection groups will protest outside Dublin Castle to draw attention to the fact that the legislation EXEMPTS from prohibition such obscenities as hare coursing and fox hunting, as well failing to address the issues of circuses and fur farming.

The protest will be staged outside the Dame Street entrance to Dublin Castle on 16th May from 12 midday to 2pm.
Please attend this protest if you can and help highlight the stranglehold that the pro-blood sports fraternity continues to have over our politicians.

Support a ban on bloodsports by attending this peaceful demo!

When: Friday, 16th May 2014 from 12 midday to 2pm
Where: Outside the Dame Street entrance to Dublin Castle

I hope the minister listens but I wouldn't hold my breath. the whole conference is a pr stunt to cover up the deal the foxhunters and coursers got via the Act. It protects them instead of the animals!

I'll be there with the Cat Protection groups because feral cats got bad deal in the animal welfare Act.
