posterAs stated in my last post, the activists need our support with donations to help them in the next days to campaign. Any amount will help, no matter how small. There is a YouCaring fundraiser especially for this:

The activists have also asked us to do the following:

1. Send appreciation letters to Ms. Emma Bonnio Minister of Foreign Affairs of Italy for all her support on enforcing the Animal Welfare Law in BiH. and

2. Please send letters to the UK Ambassador in BIH Nigel Casey asking him to follow in Italy’s footsteps in condemning changes to the law (twitter: @HMANigelCasey )

3. To continue to write letters (see Action to Take for details) saying how disappointed the international community is on the recent voting in the Parliament. That it’s shameful that the Bosnia-Herzegovina government votes for killing the animals while the EU’s Eurogroup for Animals (the leading voice for animal welfare at European Union level) are meeting in just a few days to put “Animal Welfare at the heart of the European elections.”

4. In particular, please send emails to:

EDIT NOVEMBER 22ND:  Activists are asking us to be careful with emails. “We need a new approach. We need a new strategy,” they say. It’s possible that angering the Ministers will backfire. I TRUST THIS ADVICE AS I KNOW THE MENTALITY OF THESE PEOPLE. SO FOR NOW PLEASE DO NOT SEND EMAILS OR FAXES TO BIH MINISTERS. PLEASE CONTINUE TO EMAIL EU MEPs, Embassies in Sarajevo and the EU Eurogroup/Intergroup, international welfare organisations!  DETAILS ON THE ACTION TO TAKE PAGE.

Mr. Zlatko Lagumdžija
Minister of Foreign Affairs in BiH

Mr. Zlatko Lagmudžija is president of the SPD political party which party has suggested changing the Animal Welfare Law.  So please email the party:

President of the SDP Party

Cheif President
International Department

And P.A.W.S has created a new petition:

Last chance for Bosnian animals. Please vote AGAINST the amendment that will allow the killing of stray animals
