Activists cry foul after USDA removes online database that included animal abuse 6.2.2017 DNA: Money
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) shut down an online database on Friday that included information about animals mistreated, injured and killed, reported CNN . The USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) cited privacy concerns in removing the documents, but one animal welfare activist said he believes the department is caving to pressure from groups that didn't like the information being so easily accessible. "APHIS, during the past year, has conducted a comprehensive review of the information it posts on its website for the general public to view," the announcement reads. "As a result of the comprehensive review, APHIS has implemented actions to remove certain personal information from documents it posts on APHIS' website involving the Horse Protection Act and the Animal Welfare Act." The move has resulted in widespread criticism, with organisations such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) calling the "abrupt" removal of the information shameful. “For ...

No more Kai po che? Manja banned in Maharashtra 7.1.2017 DNA: India
Ahead of Sankranti festival, Maharashtra government has banned the use of `manja' (kite string, mostly made of nylon these days) which is known to cause injuries to birds and even people. State environment department has issued a directive banning the manja. In 2015, after receiving an appeal from the animal rights group PETA, the Animal Welfare Board of India had urged the states and union territories to ban manja. Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change had sent letters urging the states and UTs to impose a ban. The state government has now banned not only the use of manja string but also prohibited its storage, stated a release from Maharashtra Pollution Control Board on Saturday. "The Maharashtra government has taken the decision under section 5 of Environment (Protection) Act, 1986. The manja or pucca threads have been causing serious injuries to people and birds. It has created problems like injuries to birds and animals, (causing) electricity equipment developing some problems, road ...

Government relaxes coastal norms for Ambedkar memorial 29.12.2016 DNA: Urban Tales
Just days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Statue off Mumbai's coast, the Centre has paved the way for construction of Dr.Bhimrao Ambedkar memorial at the defunct Indu Mill in Parel. The union ministry for environment, forest and climate change (MoEFCC) has amended the Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) notification, 2011, to insert a relaxation that will allow Maharashtra government to change land use for construction of the memorial. The amendment's timing is of consequence as it will allow the BJP-led government to begin work on the memorial just weeks before the Election Commission imposes the Model code of conduct for the Mumbai civic polls and municipal body polls in other major cities such as Pune, Nasik, Amravati, Nagpur and Solapur. It also comes more than one year after the PM laid the foundation stone for the memorial last October, thus helping the government to expedite work and attract voters from backward castes. The relaxation for ...
