    Lambs massacre in Tirana, Albania

    On 28th of November, Albania celebrates it's 100 anniversary of independence, and our prime minister, mr Sali Berisha, has organized a slaughter of lambs and rams to honor that day.
    Despite the public outcry in the media, it seems that the plan to sacrifice 2000 lambs and rams for the 100th independence anniversary is still in place. As unbelievable as it seems, an improvised slaughterhouse is being set up in a very public place: on one side of the “Mother Tereza” square, across from the “Qemal Stafa” stadium and Hotel Sheraton, next to a very popular family-friendly eatery called “Kolonat”, only meters away from Tirana Polytechnic University, the Center of Albanological Studies, and the University of Arts. The place is also within walking distance from the Italian Embassy, the American Embassy, the offices of the European Delegation and OSCE. The article below argues that this decision is likely to irritate not only animal welfare activists, but also the civil society. In a comment by Artan Lame, both the decision to sacrifice the animals and the location chosen are labeled as “barbaric”. This sounds so shocking, it is hard to believe. Please speak against this, tomorrow it's planned a protest in front of the prime minister's office..please report ! (article taken from PAPA, people for animal protection in Albania)
