During the Palio of August '12 there has been a nasty fall that involved in 'an accident chain' six horses that end up against the fence that borders the track.
Because of the big fall, the former Italian ex minister Brambilla back to demand the closure of the Palio of Siena.

Opps!!

"It 's yet another demonstration that the Palio is and remains a dangerous race for horses and jockeys." "The images that have already been around the world on the net - observed the former minister - do not honor to Italy and do not do justice to the millions of Italians who love animals and want to see their rights respected.
I am proud to have contributed, as a minister, to exclude the Palio of Siena from recognition "Heritage of Italy", as well as from national nominations to UNESCO.
The Palio is a symbol in which all Italians could identify the traditions can and should be revised.
That stake is the shame of our country>
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfWZbtBwQTQ

Since its inception more than fifty horses have died.
How many have yet to see die?
How many lashes will still be those poor horses?
he Quaestor of Siena know that next year, if you refuse to l 'Once again our right to demonstrate against the Palio, thousands of citizens individually and independently and we will go, there may be problems of public order because Italians are not more inclined to watch this horror - this is the hard comment of Enrico Rizzi, National Coordinator of the Party Animalista Europe.

When we will end up with this senseless exploitation of animals for the sole purpose of entertaining the audience?

The Italian Association of Defense Pets Environment (Aida), calls for greater safety on the track for the horses at the Palio di Siena.
Of course it is that after what happened last year should seriously consider the introduction of measures to ensure real security in the race for horses.
We all wish the Palio become an ancient memory, but we have to deal with reality and therefore Aida lavoverÓ to develop concrete proposals to improve the safety of the horses on the track.'

I'm very pixxxd off, because this will never end

Thank you dear Cher for bringing here the petition against the Palio of Siena. For years, we Italians are trying to repeal it, but all was useless. You do not need me to explain what atrocities it is, Curzio has already written. I hope your help we can reach a number of signatures needed to definitively repeal this carnage and all the suffering that horses are forced to endure. Thanks to the American people, and all other countries for this great help.
