Abolish Spring Hunting with your vote

hunting 02.2013

 

The Greens have always taken a clear stand against spring hunting.

Unfortunately the former government led by the PN was more interested in boot-licking the hunters then in applying bird protection legislation. It fact it engaged the hunters as a consultant paying them in the process thousands of euros in taxpayers’ monies.

The current Labour led government is more interested in seeking loopholes to permit hunting  to go on and on.

There is only one option left to abolish spring hunting as the political parties represented in parliament will not ease their boot-licking ways.

Spring Hunting can be abolished with your vote by calling a referendum with the specific objective of deleting legislation which permits spring hunting. This can be done through the use of legislation (abrogative referendum) introduced in the 90s but never utilised.

With this in mind Alternattiva Demokratika, the Green Party in Malta calls on all like-minded organisations to join it in setting up a Coalition to Abolish Spring Hunting. This coalition once set up will plot the way forward, identifying the best way forward with one aim: abolishing spring hunting once and for all.

Kaċċa fir-rebbiegħa? Le Grazzi!

Alternattiva Demokratika dejjem kienet kontra l-kaċċa fir-rebbiegħa. Għax mhux sostenibbli. Għax hi kaċċa li ssir meta l-għasafar ibejtu biex jitkattru. Għax mhux permessa mid-Direttiva tal-Unjoni Ewropeja dwar l-Għasafar.

Kemm il-Partit Nazzjonalista kif ukoll il-Partit Laburista ilhom snin twal jinċensaw lill-kaċċaturi u ma kienux kapaċi jdaħħlu fuhom sens ta’ dixxiplina. L-inċidenti ta’ kaċċa illegali ma seħħux b’kumbinazzjoni iżda għax uħud rabbew l-arja li għalihom ma juista’ ħadd.

Il-PN fil-Gvern kien iħallas lill-kaċċaturi ammont ta’ flus kull sena bħala l-konsulenti tiegħu. Il-PL fil-Gvern iktar moħħu jfittex il-loopholes biex jara kif jista’ jġġustifika kollox.

In-nuqqas ta’ azzjoni  tal-PN u l-PL jista’ jkun rimedjat permezz ta’ referendum abrogattiv, jiġifieri referendum li jħassar l-avviż legali dwar il-kaċċa fir-rebbiegħa.

Għalhekk il-Laqgħa Ġenerali Annwali ta’ Alternattiva Demokratika illum għamlet sejħa biex dawk li bħal Alternattiva Demokratika ma jaqblux mal-kaċċa fir-Rebbiegħa jingħaqdu f’koalizzjoni kontra l-kaċċa fir-rebbiegħ biex flimkien nippjanaw dan ir-referendum abrogattiv.

It-triq hi twila pero hu possibli li naslu, għax l-għasafar tagħna lkoll.
