Bologna, November 22 - Animal rights activists
protesting the Association of Animal Breeders and Traders
Federfauna's plans to grant a 'Hitler Award' hung banners in
front of the group's headquarters overnight Wednesday.
Signs with photos of animals in cages read "Federfauna,
you should give a medal to your members. They truly deserve it".
Federfauna said that the Hitler Award, to be presented
Saturday at a press conference, is for a "personality who has
distinguished himself as an animal rights advocate".
Adolf Hitler was said to be an avid animal rights
supporter, limiting hunting and regulating the transportation of
livestock and known for his personal affection for animals.
"The Nazis of today are hunters and farmers who kill for
the sake of killing, who shoot the defenseless and who enslave
millions of living beings for dirty profits, commercially
exploiting every part of their bodies," said a press release by
the animal rights association 100% Animalisti.
William Michelini, president of Italy's historic partisan
association Anpi, called on Federfauna to cancel the award,
calling it "absolutely unacceptable from every point of view".
"How could you honor the creator of Nazism with such
flippancy?," Michelini said.
