Don’t Punish Animal Rights Activists Who Protest Hunting

Target: Andrzej Duda, President of Poland

Goal: Nullify law that allows those who interrupt hunts to be sentenced to prison.

The president of Poland has signed a bill into law which could allow animal rights protesters to be imprisoned for up to three years, restricting the freedom of speech and the defense of hunted wildlife. The bill is intended both to silence defenders of animals and to punish inadvertent interference with necessary culling to prevent swine flu. By tying together a restriction of civil liberties with necessary and sensible culling of wild boar, President Duda has cynically taken advantage of public health to muzzle his critics.

Poland is currently at risk of African swine fever, necessitating the containment of boar populations to protect human and animal health. But Duda, a notorious opponent of free speech, animal rights, and environmental protections, is abusing the law to use police power to silence protesters. Sign below and demand that he withdraw this shameful law and restore the right to protest to those whose goal is the welfare of animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Duda,

The passage of a law setting penalties for those who interrupt sport hunting as well as necessary public health culling is a cowardly abuse of legislation intended to silence some of your most vigorous critics. Animal welfare is a serious issue defended by many, and the people have a right to stand against animal cruelty.

I demand that you end this cruel effort to suppress civil rights and stop allowing the ongoing abuse of animals in your country.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  5. Andrzej Duda, President of Poland. You are an arsehole!!!!
    Don’t punish Animal Rights Activists who are protecting the precious and innocent animals from these lowlife hunting monsters who enjoy torturing and murdering the precious wildlife and animals.
    It must be the lowlife animal torturing murdering Hunters who should be punished and eradicated from our planet. They are the monsters on our planet earth.
    These lowlife animal torturing murdering hunters are the monsters that should be hunted and killed. Not the precious and innocent wildlife and animals.
    Leave the precious wildlife and animals alone you lowlife hunting monster bastards.

  6. Please don’t punish those who are protecting the right of animals, who don’t have a voice, against murderers who go out and kill for the thrill.
