The Irish Hare is in critical danger
A major división has opened up on Indymedia.ie as to how The Irish Hare can be saved.
This Exchange will tell the reader a lot:

I want a discussion now not in six months time

The Irish hare will not be saved within capitalism
It is necessary for Irish Marxists to use the QUB scientific analysis, while remembering that they are paid by the Irish capitalist class.
Their conclusion that the Irish Hare is protected in some way by these coursing hooligans is absurd and shows the bankruptcy of these academics. That must be resisted very forcefully
The news that there is an invasion of the European Hare and that it is already mating with the Irish hare is the most alarming thing of all.
It is no longer a case of what is presented in “Bad Hare Days” because things have moved on and the Irish Hare is now in the most critical position ever.
I have got absolutely NO confidence that any section of Irish Capitalist Government, and I certainly include Sinn Fein and the southern Labour party in that, will do a single thing here.
Furthermore I have no confidence in any section of Irish anarchism, and what have they done for, and what have they achieved for, the Irish Hare over so many years, that the Irish Hare is now threatened in such a grievous way today.
The solution must be found and I am prepared to discuss with people what that solution is going to be.
I expect answers to this question here, a real discussion, and immediately

I think the record of anarchism in Ireland in support of the hare should be acknowledged , Felix. See articles like this one on anarkismo for instance http://www.anarkismo.net/article/22478
Thanks for pointing out to readers the distinction between the Irish hare and the brown hare. Some of the photos of hares I’ve seen online with captions describing them as the ” Irish hare” have actually shown the potentially invasive brown hare. When describing hares in this country generally, it’s perhaps best to use the term “hare in Ireland” .
Situation is critical and “petitions” will not save The Irish Hare

I prefer The Irish hare because it nails it that it IS the Irish hare, our animal, our responsibility
You misunderstand me so let me be more clear.
It is not what the anarchists have done, it is that whatever has been done by anybody down the years, The Irish Hare is now in its most critical position
THAT is the problem.
You refer me to a petition by John FitzGerald. I do not dismiss that but I do say that petitions are not the answer
What is the answer then? Well the answer is as long as capitalism exists in Ireland then the danger to The Irish Hare exists and becomes more critical.
It is a race against time.
In ending capitalism to save the Irish Hare there is no time to lose and proposing a petition as a solution evades the real solution
It is a serious problem but in your above comment you have not even acknowledged the problem, and that is a great danger.
