      AD supports walk against use of animals in circus

      Alternattiva Demokratika - The Green Party and its youth wing Alternattiva Demokratika Zghazagh announced their support of the symbolic walk in protest to be held on Wednesday 8th December at 5pm on the use of animals in circuses.
       
       Simon Galea, AD spokesperson for animal welfare and agriculture, said: 'The Green Party reaffirms its position in favour of a ban on use of wild and exotic animals in circuses. While stressing the need for competent authorities to monitor the welfare of animals currently being used in circuses, AD strongly believes that the circus environment  does not cater for the natural needs of most of these creatures. An elephant or a lion is not meant to spend its life travelling around in containers confined in small spaces. Definitely this environment is far from anything near its natural environment of the savannah.' '
       Michael Briguglio, AD chairperson, added: 'AD supports the NGOs and individuals which are active for animal rights. As a Green Party, AD gives top priority on animal welfare, as can be clearly seen in our electoral manifestos. We are also the only party with a spokesperson on animal welfare'.
       
      L-AD tappoggja l-mixja kontra l-uzu tal-annimali fic-cirklu
       
      Alternattiva Demokratika - The Green Party u l-Alternattiva Demokratika Zghazagh habbru l-appogg taghhom ghall-mixja simbolika bi protesta kontra l-uzu tal-annimali fic-cirkli, nhar il-Erbgha 8 ta' Dicembru. fil-5pm. 
       
      Simon Galea, il-kelliem tal-AD ghall-harsien tal-annimali u l-agrikoltura, qal: "Il-partit tal-hodor isostni l-pozizzjoni tieghu favur il-projbizzjoni tal-uzu ta' annimali slavag u ezotici fic-cirkli.  Filwaqt li tishaq il-bzonn li l-awtoritajiet kompetenti jaghmlu l-kontrolli necessarji biex jassiguraw li l-annimali fic-cirklu huma mizmuma u mharsa sew, l-AD ssostni li l-ambjent tac-cirklu mhux addattat biex jissodisfa l-bzonnijiet naturali ta' hafna minn dawn l-annimali.  Iljunfant jew iljun mhux qieghed biex joqghod idur minn post ghall-iehor go kontenituri bi spazju zghir.  Zgur li dan l-ambjent m'ghandu x'jaqsam xejn mal-ambjent naturali li joffru l-wesghat tas-savannah"/
       
      Michael Briguglio, c-chairperson tal-AD zied jghid: "L-AD tappoggja lil NGOs u individwi li huma attivi fil-qasam tad-drittijiet tal-annimali.  Bhala partit tal-hodor, l-AD taghti importanza kbira lill-harsien tal-annimali, kif jidher car mill-manifesti elettorali taghna.  l-AD huwa wkoll l-uniku partit li ghandu kelliem fuq il-harsien tal-annimali".
