#StopGreenHill THANK YOU SO MUCH! YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT IS SO IMPORTANT IN THIS MOMENT BECAUSE GREEN HILL IS NOT OFICIALLY CLOSED YET. It’s seized and it’s under investigation, and I’m very happy of course, BUT there is a difference between “SEQUESTRO PROBATORIO” and “SEQUESTRO PREVENTIVO” the FIRST expression means that GREEN HILL AND THE DOGS INSIDE IT ARE SEIZED, SO THE DOGS ARE NOT FREE: THEY CAN’T BE SOLD, BUT THEY (2700 dogs) ARE STILL PROPERTY OF GREEN HILL AND MARSHALL FARM, AND THIS IS CRAZY!!! ANIMAL ACTIVISTS CALL FOR THE “SEQUESTRO PREVENTIVO”, the second alternative, WHICH MEANS THE DEFINITIVE SEIZURE OF GREEN HILL AND THE LIBERATION OF THE DOGS, THEY DESERVE IT!
I hope the permission GH get from Brescia authorities to breed dogs will be revoked soon and I’m waiting for the article 14 to be approved by the Italian Senate, this law, if approved, would appoint obligatory anaesthesia during animal experimentation and would BAN THE BREEDING OF CATS, DOGS AND PRIMATES FOR ANIMAL EXPERIMENTATION IN ITALY. For the present there aren’t other establishments like GH in Italy, ANYWAY the passage of this law is very important for the definitive shutting of Green Hill and to make sure there will never be another place like this!
Unfortunately the Senators delayed the vote for months (every month more than 250 dogs were sent to laboratories, THIS MUSTN’T HAPPEN AGAIN), now they are discussing and voting the amendments to the article, some amendments are positive for animals, but some would make this article worse, some Senators proposed also to cancel the whole article, even after all the protests we made here in Italy. ANOTHER PROTEST IN MILAN ON 27 OF JULY AGAINST LAWYERS WHO DEFEND GREEN HILL AND APPEAL AGAINST THE SEIZURE, THEY SAY IT ALL LEGAL AND THEY ARE WORKING TO RE-OPEN GREEN HILL: THATS WHY I’M SO WORRIED FOR THE DOGS!!!
ABOUT THE OFFICIAL PETITION AGAINST GREEN HILL: WE REACHED 229,271 SIGNATURES! They are going to Italiane Senate in the next days!
I’LL DO MY BEST TO KEEP YOU UPDATED ABOUT THE SITUATION, IT’S QUITE DIFFICULT BECAUSE MOST OF THE MATERIAL AND ARTICLES ARE WRITTEN IN ITALIAN, I’M SO SORRY ABOUT IT. You could ask this groups of activists for news
