Algerian/French Artist Adel Abdessemed exhibits a short video that depicts several chickens screaming while appearing to be on fire as they hang against a wall, in an exhibition in the Museum of modern arts in Lyon at the moment.
This so-called art titled “Printemps,” or “spring” in French is creating a lot of outrage amongst associations of the protection of animals like One Voice, PETA France and Aymeric Caron.
The film, which can be viewed in part here, is part of an homage to the suffering of those involved in the Arab Spring revolutions.
Please boycott this country where animals don’t value a penny!!
Fishing activities taking place in French waters pose a serious threat to the common dolphin (Delphinus Delphis), a protected species under French and international law. During the winter of 2017, about 4,000 common dolphins died at sea in the Bay of Biscay due to fishing activities. Since the beginning of 2018, 300 strandings of small dead cetaceans have been reported on the French Atlantic coast, 80% of which were common dolphins. It is possible that some of the boats responsible for maiming and killing dolphins were fishing in Natura 2000 Marine Protected Areas at the time.
