In a statement made this morning, Friends of the Earth Malta showed its support to Alternattiva Demokratika’s initiative asking for a referendum to prohibit derogations permitting spring hunting. Friends of the Earth also confirmed that it will join the Coalition Against Spring Hunting.
“For too long, the country has been held to ransom by a large minority when most Maltese abhor the hunting and trapping of birds,” the NGO said
Friends of the Earth Malta said it “encourages other NGOs to join the coalition since this the only correct democratic path which would ultimately give government a legal mandate on how to proceed on this contentious issue.”
