Campaign for the Abolition of Terrier Work – Badger Baiting

 Abolition Of Work  Comments Off on Campaign for the Abolition of Terrier Work – Badger Baiting
Jun 192016
 

Every year, hundreds of badgers meet a horrific death in the name of ‘sport’ in the UK at the hands of terriermen. Many of those who have been caught digging into badger setts have used the excuse that they were after foxes – and many have escaped prosecution by so doing.

More than 10,000 are caught, tortured and killed in the UK each year by huntsmen with terriers – with almost a third of these illegal acts being carried out in Wales. Alarmingly, this figure is rising constantly. Terry Spamer, a former RSPCA inspector, believes that there are around 2,000 people involved in badger baiting currently. However, only around three people are caught and convicted of badger baiting each year, while the majority carry on breaking the law.

Badger Baiting was made illegal in 1835 and is currently an offence under the Protection of Animals Act 1911, but it has never died out. Sadly, it is the badger’s tenacity, its apparent ability to absorb almost any punishment and still go on fighting, which has made it a target for people who get their kicks from inflicting cruelty upon animals, even today.

Small terriers, such as Lakelands, Patterdales, sometimes Jack Russells or a cross-breed are sent down into a badger sett to locate a badger and hold it at bay. The men then dig their way down to their quarry and drag the badger out of the sett. Many diggers attach a radio transmitter to the dog’s collar before sending it below ground then all they have to do is use a radio receiver/locater to determine the exact location of the dog.

There are essentially two types of badger baiters. The first who do it just for the pleasure of killing the badger on the spot and no money is involved. If it’s lucky the badger will be shot but usually the men will set their snarling terriers on the badger and watch it suffer a long and agonising death stabbing it with shovels for good measure. At times, the dogs and the badgers may die when the sett collapses and suffocates them. (Many badger groups have fortified their local setts with concrete to protect the badgers.)

The second type of badger baiting involves gambling where large sums of money can change hands. The badger is dug out of the sett in the manner described above and then it is put in a bag and taken away to be baited later on. The badger is taken somewhere quiet for example a barn, shed or cellar and placed into a makeshift arena, a ring or pit, from which it cannot escape. Dogs are then set upon it. Even if the badger is lucky enough to get the better of one dog, the owner may hit or otherwise injure the badger in order to ‘protect his pet’. Ultimately, no matter how well it tries to defend itself, the badger’s fate is sealed. The badger, through injury and exhaustion, will not be able fight any longer. The baiters will then kill the badger usually by clubbing or shooting it. Gambling is always involved and a winning dog’s value will rise – along with the price of its puppies. An anonymous letter received by Badger Watch & Rescue Dyfed states that badgers are being caught and sold for about 500 for baiting.

Badgers are shy and peaceful animals and not normally aggressive, but will defend themselves if cornered or provoked. A badger has great strength and a blow from one of its vicious claws can do serious harm. Many dogs seriously injured during badger digging and baiting go untreated as their owners are more concerned vets will become suspicious of the owner’s illegal activity.

Badger baiting with 7 dogs. Its back legs are held by a chain to prevent escape. The animals multilated head, minus nose and lower jaw, finished up mounted on a plaque.

It’s not just ‘rogue’ terriermen who consider badger baiting a perfectly respectable pastime. For example, Bob Lawrence writing in Countrymans Weekly, 4 March 1994, comment:

“It is sad that a large proportion of the sporting community has taken to condemning badger digging. Perhaps this condemnation is a ploy to throw a smokescreen into the antis. At one time it was regarded as a true country sport and was reported in magazines like The Field. Indeed that illustrious publication was responsible for the publishing of an excellent little book entitled Working Terriers, Badgers and Badger Digging written by H H King. Anyone who has a chance to read it should do so as it gives an excellent insight into a real sporting pastime.

“Badger digging, when conducted in the proper manner by people who respected the quarry and the gallant little dogs used to dig them, was a perfectly respectable sport.”

In a Nutshell

The courts have been largely responsible for protecting and extending this right of speech. Over the past two centuries they have explored the protection owed all sorts of expression, including sedition, “fighting words,” “dangerous” speech, and obscenity, and all sorts of persons, including political radicals, Ku Klux Klansmen, and even students. But in doing so, the courts have also operated under the premise that a portion of the British legacy was correct: the right to speech is not absolute. As a result, the legal history of the First Amendment could be summarized as a balancing actan attempt to protect and extend free speech guarantees but also define the limits of this right in a manner consistent with the equally compelling rights of the community.

Freedom of speech would be easy if words did not have power. Guaranteeing people the right to say and print whatever they wanted would be easy if we believed that words had no real effect.

But Americans tend to believe that words do have powerthat they can anger and inspire, cause people to rise up and act out. Americans celebrate speakers like James Otis, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther King, Jr., whose words inspired people to fight for independence, advance the American experiment in republican government, and dream of a more just society.

Freedom of speech would be easy if all people could be trusted to be rational discerners of truthif everyone could be trusted to sort out good ideas from bad ideas and recognize the ideologies and policies that were truly aimed at the best interests of the community.

But history has proven that people do not always recognize and reject bad ideas. The past is filled with examples of peoples and nations swayed by destructive ideas.

Freedom of speech would be easy if we just said that the right was absolute, that there were no limitations on what a person could say or print and no legal consequences for any expression no matter how false, slanderous, libelous, or obscene.

But as a nation, we have always held that there are limits to the right of speech, that certain forms of expression are not protected by the First Amendment.

The bottom line: freedom of speech is not easy. Words are powerful, which means that they can be dangerous. Humans are fallible, which means that they can make bad choices. And the right of speech is not absolute, which means that the boundaries of protected speech have to be constantly assessed.

All of these facts complicate America’s commitment to free speech, but they also make this commitment courageous. In addition, they leave the legal system with a difficult challenge. On the one hand, the courts are entrusted with protecting this right to free expression, which is so central to our national experience. On the other hand, they are charged with identifying the often blurry edges of this freedom.

Read on, and see if the courts have appropriately met both of these responsibilities.

Standing ovation as Seanad passes same sex marriage Bill

 Fourth Amendment  Comments Off on Standing ovation as Seanad passes same sex marriage Bill
Mar 282015
 

Independent Katherine Zappone said the fundamental issue at stake was about the protection of a minoritys right to marry by opening a civil institution, to be protected and be able to become a constitutional family. Photographer: Dara Mac Dnaill /The Irish Times

Legislation to allow for a referendum on same sex marriage has been passed in the Seanad with a standing ovation by many of those supporting the Bill.

The Thirty-Fourth Amendment of the Constitution (Marriage Equality Bill) was accepted by 29 votes to three in the Upper House after a week of sometimes heated debate.

The legislation now goes to the President for signature, having been passed by the Dil without a vote.

The Bill was passed as an opinion poll in The Irish Times showed a 6 per cent drop in support for the introduction of same sex marriage since December when the last poll was conducted. The referendum takes place on Friday, May 22nd.

Support stands at 74 per cent compared to 80 per cent in the last poll. Support for a No vote has risen 6 per cent to 26 per cent, when undecided voters are accounted for.

A number of amendments from Independent Ronn Mullen were rejected including that marriage equality should not have unintended consequences affecting what he called freedom of conscience issues.

Mr Mullen said that as a general principle, it should always be immoral and unlawful to discriminate against a person on grounds of his or her sexual orientation.

However, refusing to provide a service in circumstances which one perceives to link one with something with which one conscientiously disagrees is not the same thing.

He highlighted the case of a bakery in Belfast which refused to provide a cake for a civil partnership and was being prosecuted by what he called the equality people in the North.

Paycoin-Cryptocurrency Coaching & Business Development

By PayCoin

When lots of people think of cryptocurrency they might too be thinking of puzzling currency. Really few folks seem to understand what it is as well as for some reason everybody seems to be discussing it as if they do. This record will with any luck debunk all the aspects of cryptocurrency to ensure that by the time youre completed reading you will have a respectable suggestion of what it is and what its everything about.

You may discover that cryptocurrency is for you or you might not however a minimum of youll have the ability to speak with a level of surety and also understanding that wont possess.

There are lots of people that have already reached millionaire standing by dealing in cryptocurrency. Plainly theres a bunch of cash in this brand-new market.

Cryptocurrency is electronic money, brief and also easy. Nonetheless, whats not so brief and easy is specifically how it comes to have value.

Cryptocurrency is a digitized, online, decentralized money created by the application of cryptography, which, according to Merriam Webster dictionary, is the digital encoding as well as decoding of details. Cryptography is the foundation that makes debit cards, computer system banking as well as eCommerce systems possible.

Cryptocurrency isnt supported by financial institutions; its not supported by a government, but by a very challenging plan of formulas. Cryptocurrency is electrical power which is encoded right into intricate strings of formulas. What lends financial value is their intricacy and their protection from cyberpunks. The method that crypto currency is made is just as well difficult to replicate.

Cryptocurrency is in direct opposition to exactly what is called fiat cash. Fiat money is currency that gets its worth from government ruling or law. The dollar, the yen, as well as the Euro are all instances. Any kind of money that is defined as legal tender is fiat cash.

Unlike fiat cash, one more part of just what makes crypto money important is that, like an asset such as silver and also gold, theres only a finite amount of it. Just 21,000,000 of these incredibly complicated formulas were made. No more, no less. It cannot be changed by printing even more of it, like a federal government printing even more cash to pump up the system without backing. Or by a banking changing a digital journal, something the Federal Reserve will advise financial institutions to do to readjust for inflation.

Latvia: NATO jets intercept Russian fighters twice in 2 days over Baltic Sea

Published October 21, 2014

Oct. 20, 2014: Two Canadian F-18 Hornet jets were scrambled from the Siauliai Air Base in Lithuania on Monday to intercept a Russian Ilyushin-20 surveillance aircraft, which they shadowed for some 15 minutes, NATO said(The Associated Press)

HELSINKI NATO scrambled fighter jets twice in two days to intercept Russian military aircraft over the Baltic Sea, it said Tuesday amid reports that Russian military activity in the region is increasing.

Lt. Col. Robert Gericke said the Russian aircraft were flying in international airspace and had not violated the territory of alliance members.

Two Canadian F-18 Hornet jets were scrambled from the Siauliai Air Base in Lithuania on Monday to intercept a Russian Ilyushin-20 surveillance aircraft, which they shadowed for some 15 minutes, NATO said.

“Once identification was successful, the intercept mission was completed and the two Hornets returned to their base,” a NATO statement said.

Earlier, the Latvian military tweeted that NATO F-16 jets were dispatched on Tuesday to intercept a Russian Ilyushin-20 surveillance aircraft over the Baltic Sea. Gericke confirmed that NATO jets had also intercepted a Russian aircraft that day, but could not immediately provide more details.

NATO, which has 16 fighter jets in the region monitoring Baltic airspace, said it regularly launches jets to identify “unknown or potentially hostile aircraft” in the proximity of national airspace.

There were two similar incidents in the region on Oct. 7 and Sept. 11, but on neither occasion did the Russian aircraft constitute a threat to NATO forces, the alliance said.

Oct 062014
 

NATO will stand by member state Turkey if it comes under attack as a result of the fighting just across the border in Syria, alliance Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Monday. ISIS militants on Monday raised their flag on the eastern outskirts of the Syrian town of Kobani, six miles from Turkish territory. Stray fire from fighting around the town has hit Turkish land.

“The main responsibility for NATO is to protect all allied countries. Turkey is a NATO ally and our main responsibility is to protect the integrity, the borders of Turkey and that is the reason why we have deployed Patriot missiles in Turkey to enhance, to strengthen the airfence of Turkey,” Stoltenberg told a news conference during a visit to Poland.

A senior NATO official told NBC News: “Turkey, as a Member of NATO, is under the protection of Article 5 of the Washington Treaty so of course NATO would be prepared to assist if Turkey asked NATO to invoke Article 5.”

Reuters contributed to this report.
