In the last 3 weeks due to the tragic death of a 4 year old child , killed by dogs ( with their involvement in circumstances still unclear ) , Romania is a country comprised of psychosis violence against owners of dogs and stray dogs . Society is more polarized than ever , the two sides are threatening each other , we live practically at war with man and man with man animal.
All this happened with the tacit tolerance of public authorities , but also against the background of messages that incite violence and hatred among people, hatred between us , hatred of a population of animals, all of them without distinction. Unleash the Romans believe their own hands , resorting to unimaginable atrocities , Justice, State and Justice to replace the -eye for eye, tooth for tooth . In these circumstances, the rule of law can not be a reality, but rather a lack of support claim . Not met in any member country of the European Union a similar case in which the politics of the nation to instill hatred and violence against stray animals and people who are in favor of protection. The rule of law means respect for the law , not free will. It's time to enter the civilized world from this point of view , that the way we treat animals , abandoned by anyone other than us. After such a drama , even now, in the 12th hour, it's time to take action . Animal Place is not in the streets. The measures we take to stop this phenomenon must take , but by reason and civility , not resentment and political or pecuniary interests . The fact that we got here , we all know , has the exclusive cause indifference authorities and too tolerant of civil society with the political class . Following Ionut's tragedy , the Romanian Parliament rather fit to adopt a law that authorizes municipalities to kill stray animals mass without any constraint , by distorting the legal meaning of euthanasia .
We recall that euthanasia is defined as a painless medical procedure , designed to curb the pain a patient is in a terminal stage of an incurable disease . In addition , if such a population of dogs , you know well that it's not about euthanasia , but a mass murder .
The law passed by the Parliament violates Article 13 of the Treaty of Lisbon, the European Convention for the protection of pet animals nr.60/2004 ratified by Law , and Law 205/2004 on the protection of animals approved as amended by Law 9 / , 2008. Also, ignore the law adopted by the institution's decision that you represent , the Constitutional Court , Decision no. 1 of 11 January 2012, published in Official Gazette Aromanians , Part I, no. 53 of 23 January 2012. Moreover, the Romanian Parliament adopted the law creates a framework for conflict between several laws , which allows free will , leaving already killing animals in many parts of the country.
Numerous studies and treaties, including the conclusions of the World Health Organization , recommend applying a reproduction control program and not a solution radical , inhumane , expensive and inefficient !
WHO recommended measures are in the hands of the authorities and civil society and the population must empower , educate and stimulate them to engage effectively and in managing this serious crisis situations , including adoptions . Adoptions , which, however , according to current legislation, are rather hampered than encouraged .
To mask a crass institutional incapacity and reckless spending of public money , without ensuring any animal welfare, nor the people , the Romanian authorities have done now, in haste , the adoption of a legal framework ignoring international treaties and application EP resolution of July 4, 2012 on the EU Strategy for the protection and welfare of Animals 2012-2015 (2012/ 2043 ( INI) , which by paragraphs 24 to 28 , requires Member States to adopt comprehensive strategies canine population management . in this context , we consider Romanian authorities have the obligation to respect international law and international treaties Romania is a member state . Moreover , the Romanian authorities have the obligation to direct legal aspect of the situation that created social tensions between people unnecessarily, giving the current regulation on the mass killing of stray animals , correlated with the consistent application of the law no.9/2008 and implement a national strategy , according to the European Parliament resolution of 4 July 2012 , in partnership with civil society representatives .
In Romania , for 20 years , constant killing of stray dogs has proven to be an ineffective method , which, although at first glance illogical , population growth has led to the canine community .
In Romania , killing dogs sustained abuse , barbarism , and corruption .
Outside the country , under the slogan RED CARD FOR ROMANIA , thousands of European citizens have given a red card in the 25 capitals of Romania and European cities (London , Berlin, Brussels, Bonn , Bern, Cologne , Vienna , Milan, etc). Thousands of citizens have announced their participation in protests still take place daily in front of embassies / consulates in Germany, Greece , Poland , Austria , Finland, Spain, the Netherlands , Bulgaria.
Romania is already the image of a country that claims to want to get to civilization , but it is barbaric methods . It's not yet too late ! We ask you , ladies and gentlemen judge, do you have something in mind when you decide that an entire country , and Europe, waits : beyond animal rights recognized in civilized countries , human rights refer to a citizen safety State of being attacked by animals abandoned , but equally to the same or other right of citizens not to be forced to live in their own country , a massacre in the state trauma , inefficient force them to partake . Are citizens in this country, adults and children, who can not conceive , can not live such horrors . And they are not few , I assure you . There are civilized solutions , it's time that those who lead us to apply ! And that now depends on you!
The above mine , arguments belong specialists in the field , and below you over 300 personalities from Romania or simply members of civil society that appeal to the Constitutional Court of Romania to make the right decision and Europe. In a normal world it can not be " final solution " .
