Stop with the massacre of the stray dogs and cats in Ukraine!!!!!
Let's boycott the European Football Championship in this country. I really hope that football fans and people in general are smart and sensitive enough to don't tolerate such barbarism.
Just read this journal and share with all the people you can.
In researching an entirely different article, I came across evidence the authorities in the Ukraine co-hosts of this year's Euro 2012 tournament have been destroying stray dogs in their tens of thousands in some particularly shocking ways, to ensure their cities are 'cleaned up' in time for the tournament.Protests by players
And despite protests by German national team players Mesut Özil, Lukas Podolski, Thomas Müller, Miroslav Klose and Toni Kroos as well as supporters of Germany and PETA, dogs are still being poisoned, killed and destroyed in a mobile crematorium or thrown into pits in the Ukraine.
UEFA are turning a blind eye to it. Worse still, it's their money which is funding the killing of these animals in a most barbaric way. PETA estimated last November 20,000 strays had by then been destroyed in Kiev alone.

The Ukrainian authorities have been destroying animals since 2009 by shooting them in the street, poisoning them, or many other violent and cruel ways. The poisons used inflict a slow and painful death, leaving the animals dying in their own vomit while convulsing on the floor. Their bodies are then thrown into holes in the ground, dumped in waste disposal bags, incinerated or burned in a mobile incinerator bought solely for the purpose of the upcoming European Championships.
Many animals are still alive when being thrown into the incinerator. Videos of petrified strays being thrown into rubbish collection vehicles squealing in pain as they're crushed in the metal compactors, and weeks-old pups being dumped into mass graves alive have been spread across the internet after being featured on English-speaking news station Russia Today and other outlets. I've seen a number of them. They're disturbing, sickening and absolutely unnecessary.
UEFA provided 8,000 Euros twice towards animal sterilisation programmes in the Ukraine. A token payment, given the Ukrainian authorities paid 20,000 Euros for the mobile cremation van mentioned above.
People don't invest in guns, poisons and furnace equipment to kill dogs for fun. The groups driving around the Ukraine's cities killing these animals are doing so because they are being paid by the Ukrainian authorities. Images in December revealed even sterilised stray animals are being destroyed by these state-funded death gangs (Dogs sterilised by animal charities are given red collars to ensure they're easily recognisable).
What's worse is the Ukraine's investment in these killings will be footed by UEFA, but denies it can do anything about the situation because it is not directly related to football. ( SUCH A SHAME !
)UEFA FUNDED ANIMAL CRUELTY
The very fact that an estimated 150-250,000 animals will be slaughtered simply to host half of a football tournament IS directly related to UEFA. Germany's top footballers have led the way by expressing their disgust in what is happening to Ukraine's stray dog population, yet UEFA choose to ignore their pleas and turn a blind eye to blatant animal cruelty.
Quite simply, the Ukraine has opted to kill these animals in a most disgusting manner which will not only cause unnecessary pain and suffering to them now, but won't solve the stray animal population problems long after the final whistle is blown this summer.
UEFA's denial of any wrongdoing is simply complete garbage they could easily step in at any point and ensure their tournament is being run in a country where animal rights laws are adhered to.
Animal charities across the globe have offered their assistance in providing the only proven method of reducing stray animals. Clearly the need to destroy thousands of animals before the arrival of Europe's flagship international tournament however, was worth more to Ukraine than a long-term, humane programme.In football's name?
Surely the benefits of hosting a major tournament are supposed to be lasting and long term for the host nations? As well as stadia and infrastructure, football tournaments are supposed to provide lasting legacies for nations.
Why can't a neuter and spay programme for the pets of the nation be the long term legacy for their dog and cat populations, like it is here?
In this case, the only legacy is a nation willing to break European laws in terms of animal cruelty and our European football governing body sitting back and doing nothing, while tens of thousands of animals die cruel and painful deaths.
PETA have a petition. I urge all football fans and dog lovers to sign it. You can do so at the following link, and share it on social networks for your friends to sign too[link]
Hacktivist group Anonymous have also thrown their weight behind this brutal practice. Lets hope something can be done before any more animals suffer. Sadly as the South African World Cup proved when evicting people from their homes to make way for stadiums, and stray animal killings in Greece for their European Championships, profit comes first for football's governing bodies.IF U HAVE AN HEART AN DON'T CARE ONLY ABOUT MANGAS AND DRAWING, IF U HAVE AN ANIMAL AT HOME OR JUST A CONSCIENCE, SPREAD THIS NEWS AND JUST TRY TO CONVINCE ALL THE PEOPLE U KNOW TO BOYCOTT THE EUROPEAN FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP IN THIS COUNTRY, DON'T ALLOW THE GOVERNMENT OF THIS COUNTRY TO MAKE ITS MONEY AND ITS INTERESTS ON THE BLOOD OF THOUSAND INNOCENT ANIMALS!!!
P.S. OF COURSE i WANT TO THANK ALL THE UKRAINIAN PEOPLE WHO LOVE THE ANIMALS, WHO FIGHT FOR THEIR RIGHT AND THEIR LIVES MAKING PETITIONS , MANIFESTATIONS AND THAT HAVE EVEN WATCHED ON THEM DURING THE NIGHTS FOR PROTECT THEM BY THE KILLERS, MY DISGUST AND MY ANGER IS ONLY AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT THAT HAS SOLVED THE PROBLEM IN THE WAY MORE EASY AND CRUEL POSSIBLE.
SHAME ON U!
I REALLY HOPE THAT PEOPLE MORE FAMOUS THAN ME WILL SHARE THIS JOURNAL TO CONVINCE THE MOST PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE!
