Hi all,

I am sad to report the that ban on fur farming is in serious jeopardy.

After weeks of receiving varied reports on the situation of the ban, I got a letter from Minister Coveney's secretary, stating only that the "possibility of a ban on fur farming is being examined" as part of the new Animal Health and Welfare Bill.

The bill is already being drafted, and their aim is to have it completed and passed into legislation during the summer. So we have to act fast to ensure that a fur farm ban is included. After all the hard work we put into securing a ban with the Green Party, it is devastating to be practically back at square one just because the government is under new leadership. But we need to put all our energy into this right now - so please join us! read full story / add a comment

Dear Sir/Madam,
While we are relieved that Bord na gCon was denied permission to export Irish greyhounds to China, we remain alarmed that they are nevertheless going to attempt to develop and manage racetracks there. This is not just a cynical move, but a sinister one. They will have to get greyhounds from somewhere for this cruel sport. read full story / add a comment

Our societies have to pronounce on the unjustifiable character of meat consumption from an ethical viewpoint: it involves sacrificing the basic interests of innumerable sentient beings whereas eating meat is unnecessary.
The idea is to claim loud and clear that it is not only the duty of each individual to stop supporting the murderous exploitation required by the consumption of animal flesh and "by-products", but that it is also, therefore, the duty of societies as a whole to declare themselves in favor of the banning of farming, fishing and hunting. read full story / add a comment
