More pix of the Manifestation in Strasbourg. I'm told there weren't many French associations there - which is very bad - and fewer people. Having said that, the Spanish associations would not be there because they were marching in Madrid and Barcelona on Sunday.
Besides the 2nd Manifestation in Strasbourg on Sunday 9th June, organised by C.R.E.L., there will be a simultaneous demonstration in Barcelona and Madrid.
Here's what Anna Clements of SOS Galgos says, 'This Sunday SOS Galgos will be demonstrating in solidarity with our friends outside the Palais des Congrès et de la Musique in Strasbourg. We are attending not only to demand the protection of Galgos but against the wider mistreatment of all dogs used for hunting.
Telma Shaw from GRIN in the US visited Malaga earlier this year, here is part 2 of her visit. Here's part 1. And here's the story of the incredible Ebro - you cannot fail to be moved by the fighting spirit of this wonderful galgo. Thank you to everyone in GRIN for being such wonderful supporters of the galgos and podencos of Spain.
Link to an article about El Seprona and the 'Black Legend'. Have posted a translation below. Apologies that I have not had time to go through it to correct it. At the end is translation of two comments.
Two stories of more galgos saved - the first one is 11 galgos in Cordoba. The hunter was taken very ill and hospitalised and an appeal went out to help the galgos. Galgos del Sol took 2 and several small associations stepped in to help. The galgos are all ok.
The second story is about a dozen or so galgos, podencos and other dogs including puppies abandoned in an empty swimming pool! You can see how deep it is by looking at the male volunteer with a couple of the dogs. It is believed they were left there by gitanos. They have all been rescued by Apadac association in Callosa de Segura, Valencia region. You can see more photos on their website.
