TURKISH ACTIVISTS FIGHT IN COURT FOR ANIMAL RIGHTS!
This weekend two of the leading newspapers in Turkey , Milliyet and Hurriyet have exposed the issue in their pages.
This fight will continue in the Administrative Court as well as in the Mass Media. Sooner or later the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality will come to realize that it is much easier, cost-effective and certainly better for PR purposes to manage Neuter and Return in a humane and professional way, and counting with our collaboration and supervision that leaving the whole responsibility of this crucial project under the control of companies and individuals of dubious repute.
The moment there is a firm commitment on the part of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality to make this project work in strict accordance with the Law, and guided by Humane Principles, we, as well as our friends of the Society for the Protection of Stray Animals, will be there to lend them a helping hand towards its successful completion.
Until then the fight will continue both in the Court as well as the public forum of national and international Media. It is up to Arif Eker and ultimately up to Kadir Topbas, the Major of Istanbul to decide which route to follow: a new way guided by humanity, legality and joint cooperation OR its current inhumane, illegal and dismissive behavior that is ending with the lives of thousands of animals in an appalling display of animal cruelty and total disregard of both law and public opinion.
