Our society "Sloboda za zivotinje""Freedom for Animals"was founded in Belgrade on 25.4.2003, following a visit by Christian Sailer, the well known advocate of animal rights.Christian, a doctor of philosophy and law, and in fact the principle prosecutor of the International Court for Animal Rights, in Geneva was invited by professors of the Law Faculty in Belgrade to lecture to the Forum Romanum club on the subject:"Constitutional Rights for Animals".
Our society "Sloboda za zivotinje""Freedom for Animals"was founded in Belgrade on 25.4.2003, following a visit by Christian Sailer, the well known advocate of animal rights, who is with us here today.
Thus the definition of a Constitutional article which guarantees animals' right to life, in accordance with their species, was introduced to Serbia. Some days later on the invitation of "Universal Life" he presented the book "Animals Lament - The Prophet Denounces!", at the Student's Cultural Centre. This exceptional book deals with the reasons why, our civilisation which calls itself Christian, treats animals as creatures without feelings or soul, and the consequence of this attitude. Many of those present were moved to take action. So the first society in Serbia was founded with a clearly defined programme and ideas for the freedom of animals.
We advocate vegetarian food as a form of animal protection. other towns in Serbia and against animals in circuses.
In the course of the last year we have appeared more than 20 times on TV, at peak periods, with programmes very professionally prepare within the framework of school, science, education and ecological emissions, or there has been mention of our activities in the news on the most viewed channels. Peta's film " Chew on this" which we synchronised in Serbian has been seen four times
as well as Peta's action against fur with Pamela Anderson and their Benetton action. We are pleased to say that the media are very open and interested in the promotion of our activities.
"Premeditated Murder. Don't be an Accomplice. Don't Eat Animals"
This year we appeared with these billboards at the largest music festival, in southeast Europe - EXIT with 150,000 visitors, which is held in the Petrovaradin Fortress in Novi Sad. A large number of young people visited our stand and reacted very positively to our promotion, posters and brochures - "8 Nutritional Lies" and "8 Hunting Lies". They also signed our petitions and applied for our Newsletter.
Recently we have been concentrating on the legal rights of animals which led to our collaboration with the association "Lawyers for Democracy", and to organisation of the "Centre for the advancement and protection of animals' legal rights", whose representative Dr, Stephen Lilic is here with us today.
