The Irish Council Against Blood Sports is holding a peaceful demonstration outside the Department of Agriculture, Kildare Street, Dublin, on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 from 12.30 to 2.30pm. The demo is to highlight the horrific export of Irish racing greyhounds to China’s infamous Canidrome track at Macau, where more than 30 dogs are killed monthly, according to animal rights activists on the ground there.
The Department of Agriculture vetoed the export of racing greyhounds to China in 2011, citing concerns about welfare standards there, but now in 2016, they are seemingly turning a blind eye, stating there is “no ban on the export of greyhounds to China”.
Please join us to send a strong message to the acting Minister for Agriculture, Simon Coveney, that this is totally unacceptable and that he must move to immediately call a halt to this trade in misery.
Location: Outside the Department of Agriculture, Kildare Street, Dublin
Date: Wednesday, May 4th
