Thursday, September 16


"Clouds of orange smoke hung over Parliament Square on Wednesday as smoke bombs and fireworks disrupted what had been a peaceful protest by huntspeople from across England and Wales." And of these once-peaceful protesters, "five got into the Commons chamber, disrupting MPs as they debated a Bill to ban hunting with dogs in England and Wales." Not big news or anything, just a reminder that it's not only those on the pro-animal side that embarrass their cause with boorish, violent tactics. The difference, perhaps, is that one side is fighting for the right to inflict violence. Here's the best tear-jerking quote from that perspecitive: "Once they ban blood sports, I won't have anything else to do."
