5/5/19 – Today Venus and I have discussed Serbia and the EU Parliamentary elections which will take place between 23-26/5/19. http://www.europarl.europa.eu/unitedkingdom/en/european-elections/european_elections.html
We will be publishing more on the EU and its failures for animal welfare in the coming weeks. We will also link in to Serbia’s wish to become an EU member state; but at the moment I would like you to see and read Venus’s excellent post on Serbia which she published a few days ago – https://worldanimalsvoice.com/2019/05/04/serbia-land-of-collective-animal-torment/
We have experience with Serbia and animal ‘welfare’ going back to 2005 when we formed ‘Serbian Animals Voice’ (SAV. Here is the link to SAV and the specific ‘Serbian’ sector – https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/category/serbia-central-serbia-capital-belgrade-and-serbiavojvodina-capital-novi-sad/
Here is the link to Serbian animals and the failures by the Serbian government to enforce it own legislation – https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/about-serbian-animals/
Officially, to become an EU member state, any nation wishing to join the EU must show (under the Copenhagen Agreement) that it IS enforcing its own national ‘Rules of Law’. Serbia does not do this with animal welfare; thus we consider that Serbia should NOT be allowed to join the EU, as it is non-compliant. More on this about the law in the link https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/about-serbian-animals/
But we all know that existing EU member states such as Romania are not enforcing EU legislation anyway. Despite numerous reports and visits by MEP’s to Romania to document their terrible animal welfare status, the EU simply walks away from the data. It is the same with EU wide live animal transport legislation; the EU simply does not accept any of the hard evidence presented to them showing that EU rules on live animal transport are NOT being enforced.
We will go deeper into these issues over the next few weeks, before the EU elections; where ‘EU citizens’ supposedly have their vote on the EU system and the people (MEP’s) that represent them. We know from bee killing pesticides through to animal transport, the voice of the ‘EU man’ is not really listened to; but the voice of lobbyists for the ‘Mafia’s’ which seem to run the EU are always listened to. They have the money to lobby to get what they want; so they always win.
For now, I leave you with a few more links and videos for your review; which shows the ‘EU system’ for animals and their ‘welfare’ does not work:
Croatia joined the EU in 2013 – this is ‘EU animal welfare’ !
More to come in the next few weeks;
