      MEDIA RELEASE 02/08/05

      Screening of documentary about hunting in Malta

       

      Alternattiva Demokratika International Secretary Ralph Cassar said that Alternattiva Demokratika has brought over to Malta the documentary entitled “Malta: A Birdless Island”, which was shown in the European Parliament earlier last month.

       

      The documentary was shot in Malta between April 17 and May 5 this year by a media company called Malta Media, consisting of a number of university students, with help of Dutch TV producers. The production of this documentary was financed by Bird Protection Belgium.

       

      The documentary clearly shows the hunting and trapping situation in Malta. Cassar said that the countryside has been taken over by a few people to the detriment of thousands of Maltese families who are unable to enjoy the little countryside that is left. Cassar said that apart from the issue of hunting and trapping ruining what is common environmental heritage, in a small country such as Malta hunting and trapping are detrimental to the

      quality of life of the Maltese citizen and residents of Malta. Ralph Cassar said that AD will continue lobbying in EU institutions for  the enforcement of all rules agreed upon by Malta and the EU before accession. AD will continue insisting for a stop to all spring hunting.

       

      The documentary will be screened during ADs annual summer BBQ, which this year will take place at Razzett tal-Hbiberija on the 10th of August 2005. Bookings can be made by contacting Ralph Cassar on ralph.cassar@... or phoning 99894962. More details can be found in the events section of the website www.alternattiva.org.mt .
