The annual International Animal Rights Day (IARD) – 10th December – aims to remember the animal victims of human tyranny and call for the recognition of our Universal Declaration of Animal Rights (UDAR). The goal of this historic campaign is to build on the recognition of human rights, and persuade humanity that kindness and respect is due to all sentient creatures.
Thousands of animal rights supporters across the world hold candlelit vigils and other inspiring events to mark the 13th annual IARD. Ethical pioneers united to remember the billions of animals subjected to deliberate cruelty and killing across the world every year. This coordinated global day of action has intensified calls for the recognition of the rights of all sentient beings to life, liberty and natural enjoyment.
To find out a lot more from many organisations; simply Google ‘International Animal Rights Day’ on your computer. There are too many links to repeat it all here.
A hunting association clubhouse in Saint-Pierre-du-Mont was set on fire early on December 1.
“Romania” was found painted inside the building, a possible reference to the recent incident in which thousands of sheep died in a capsized cargo ship off the coast of Romania.
That’s was the first, there is one more, too.
9 Hunting Towers Damaged (Sainte-Geneviève-en-Bray, France)
Nine hunting towers in Sainte-Geneviève-en-Bray were damaged during the last week of November.
A message, “The pests are you. Let’s shoot the hunters”, was painted on the towers.
Thanks to the activists!

11th September, after a long and tough year of campaigning; the ‘European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) closed. The demand was to inspire 1 Million people across the EU to add their voice in demanding a ban on ALL caged farming.
If successful, an ECI can be a powerful weapon. If more than 1 million signatures are collected, then the European Commission is legally obliged to respond. But with this campaign success was uncertain, but hopeful knowing the concerns of many good animal folk across the continent.
This year, out of 45 ECI’s which were started, only 4 gained the number of signatures.
For the cage ban campaign, the fate of millions of pigs, rabbits, calves, hens, and many other animals trapped for weeks or months in cruel cages was the factor. 170 organisations – ranging from animal welfare, through environmental and also consumer rights joined together to make their voices heard. There were over 200 street protests across the EU working together for the animals.
In July; CIWF (England) launched a very hard hitting undercover investigation into Polish farms that were keeping calves in solitary confinement for much of their lives. The harrowing footage was shown across the EU. EU citizens were demanding change !
When the ECI came to a close in September this year (2019); the biggest push for farm animal welfare the EU has ever seen reached a conclusion.
1.6 Million signatures had been collected demanding an end to the Cage Age.
So; what next ?
All the signatures are now being scrutinised by member states. This could take several months. A minimum of 1 Million signatures must be validated; once done, they will be formally presented to the European Commission, triggering a formal process where the Commission must respond. There could be a public hearing, as well as a possible vote in the European Parliament.
Your voices; 1.6 Million of them, are just the start in what could be a lengthy process to get justice for the caged animals in Europe. But the start has been victorious, and now we must move on the end the Cage Age.
We will be calling on you when necessary to give further support to the fight. We know we can rely on you.

International media already report on the “German racoon”.
It is the story of that raccoon who ran around the Christmas market in Erfurt, Germany, on Saturday, peacefully but shakily, and finally was shot dead.
The animal was apparently not brought to the animal shelter as originally planned to be cared for there – in the end, a hunter picked up the animal and shot it.
And the dirty, the sold press of Germany constructed a perpetrator friendly scenario, as we know it from the days of the Ex-German Democratic Republic (GDR) Regiems, to which formerly Erfurt belonged..
The first reports describe the weak, rickety raccoon as a peaceful guest of the Erfurt Christmas market, which upsets the believing Christians just because he was a raccoon.
He was a shaky, weak raccoon, who even played with the shoe strings of the visitors, and apparently looked for a quiet place to lie down.
A police spokesman has spread the outrageous message that the animal was heavily intoxicated because it was seen that it licked the glow wine leftovers !!!
The informations were contradictory from the beginning: the animal shelter did not want to take the animal, because it was wild (!!!), the fire department could catch it in a basket and finally there was the official executioner of the city of Erfurt, the hunter,
who executed it.
The shelter of Erfurt immediately deleted the post from its Facebook page because the Shitstorm was great.
Also great was the reaction against the city of Erfurt, the the town hall even got threats.
Shortly after the Shitstorm in all media has said Daniel Baumbach, the spokesman for the city of Erfurt, that the animal was not drunk, but “obviously” ill!!
This “obviously” was provided by a “veterinarian,” who by remote diagnosis found that the raccoon was infected with distemper (a disease).
On the same way, we also found by remote diagnosis that the veterinarian suffers from brain abnormalities!
And it turns out that the policeman and not the raccoon was drunk. A remote diagnosis from us to!!
One more important Information must be added here:
The animal had to be handed over to the hunting lessee, which stipulates an EU regulation: “The raccoon is on the EU list of invasive species. According to the EU- regulation, the stock of these animals would have to be greatly reduced, as they endanger snakes and birds!!”
And so we are back on the topic “animal welfare” by our girlfriend, EU!
Wherever it is about murder and suffering to animals, the EU is the employer.
Here in Germany we have a humorous so-called “Animal Protection Law”. It says: “No one is allowed to cause pain, suffering or harm to an animal without a reasonable reason”.
Only if the EU and its lackeys want it …..
then every reason is a reasonable reason.
That’s what I understand under Fascism.

My best reagrds to all, Venus
Just how “personal” is it, exactly, to slit the throat of a non-consenting party, dismember their corpse, and put them in a sandwich?
Last time we checked, PERSONAL choices and preferences end JUST THERE – at the body of the person making the choice.
Buying the products of animal oppression is not a “personal choice”- it’s a VIOLATION of someone else’s choice to not be enslaved and murdered!
