Coalition against Spring Hunting : the first steps

hunting 02.2013

Where do I sign to ensure that a referendum in favour of abolishing spring hunting is held?

Collection of signatures has not yet started. It will only start when the coalition is in place.

AD has invited all pro-nature organisations to launch a broad Coalition to Abolish Spring Hunting. Various NGOs got in touch.

Ramblers and Friends of the Earth have already declared publicly that they support the initiative . Other organisations have signified their intention to join but they have yet to formalise their decision through their Committee.

On behalf of AD I have held various meetings with other eNGOs  which are still considering whether to participate in the Coalition. It is perfectly reasonable to await these eNGOs in order that they can decide, in full autonomy. Obviously at some point a decision will be taken to move forward with the eNGOs who are on board.

Then, the next steps will be announced.

  1. Ban shotguns altogether. That would make it impossible for the hunters to keep destroying these birds.
    Yes the birds do belong to all of us and they have no right to keep killing these beautiful creatures because they enjoy it. There are other ways to have fun. Let them find another hobby.

  2. I agree with this referendum but I can’t see tourists being allowed a say in the matter even though it affects us as well. Having said that I would hope that the majority of Maltese people who are opposed to hunting of any kind will vote against Spring hunting when the time comes.

  3. Killing birds in spring is barbaric. It needs to stop. Hopefully hunters will understand that and act accordingly…if they wish to have the people’s respect – or rather what remains of that unfortunately.
    The central administration needs to act in the interests of the general public and of wildlife – if it wishes to be taken seriously on this issue.
