The Egyptian vulture’s heart beat in Sapes for a day

23.06.2015
The banner leads the way

Friday June 5th - World Environment Day: Sapes Primary School is equipped with all the necessities and takes to the streets once more to shout for the Egyptian vulture.

Masks cover faces, picket signs high in the air, leaflets in hands, 60 pupils marching with the banner "Respect animals and nature" in the front and slogans shouted at maximum volume.

It is farmer's market today and the streets of the town are quite busy. The emissaries of this unique endangered species maneuver between the benches holding the produce in order to raise awareness regarding one of the most crucial problems it faces: poison baits!

The demo ends in the Town Hall Square, where the slogans are replaced by a silent protest. Τhe day's message "Poison baits spread death, respect animals and nature" became a hit!
