An Animal Rights Activist Beaten Upside His Head With a Duck by a Spanish woman defending the Catalonia’s ‘Duck Chase’ Tradition

THIS MIGHT BE THE CRAZIEST STORIES YOU NEVER HEARD …

From the UK Daily Mail comes the following story that might be one of the most bizarre of 2015. Forget about running with the bulls, how about swimming with the ducks!!! An animal rights activists was clubbed upside his head by a Spanish woman in a white bathing suit during the annual Catalonia’s ‘Duck Chase’. So as this tradition goes, the ducks thrown into Mediterranean, then recaptured by swimmers. The incident took place after a woman, seen in the below video in a white bathing suit was confronted by an animal rights activist. She then started beating the dude with the duck.

Obviously, I hope the duck was not hurt, but what a sight that must have been. Please, oh please, does any one have video on that? Those folks in Spain have an awful lot a free time on their hands.

This is the shocking moment an animal rights activist was beaten around the head with a duck by a Spanish woman defending one of the country’s most controversial traditions.

The woman struck the man with the bird while he was filming the annual ‘duck chase’ in the seaside town of Roses in north eastern Spain.

Every August ducks are thrown into the Mediterranean and then caught and brought back to the shore by swimmers as part of the festival.

The footage shows a young woman wearing a white bathing suit attack the man with a duck – holding it by the legs as she repeatedly lashes him with it.

As the attack goes on, animal rights activists gathered on the shore can be heard chanting, ‘You would not do that to your dog,’ before they were removed by police.

53 Year Old Free diver Natalia Molchanova Missing Since 8/2/15 and Feared Dead off the Coast of Spain Near the Island of Formentera

53 year old free diver Natalia Molchanova has been missing since Sunday, August 8, 2015 off the coast of Spain near the Island of Formentera. Molchanova was “recreationally freediving” without fins on Sunday when she became separated from her group. She disappeared approximately two miles northwest of the port of La Savina at Poniente de es Freus. Natalia Molchanova holds 41 world records and is a 23-time world champion in freediving. The extreme sport requires divers to hold their breath rather than use scuba gear or oxygen tanks. Sadly, this trailblazer in the sport is feared dead.

World champion free diver Natalia Molchanova was missing and feared dead Wednesday, more than two days after she disappeared while recreationally diving off the coast of Spain.

The international diving association AIDA said the 53-year-old Russian apparently dove into a strong current off the island of Formentera.

“Search efforts have been ongoing during daylight hours and the next day since she was reported missing by three peers,” AIDA said in a statement.

Free divers swim as deeply as they can while holding their breath. AIDA said Molchanova could hold her breath for nine minutes.

Molchanova, the mother of two, is the most decorated competitive free diver in the world. AIDA said she holds 41 world records and is a 23-time world champion. She also has a doctorate in teaching sciences and has authored multiple scientific articles and two free diving training handbooks. She designed and taught free-diving programs worldwide, training thousands of divers.

Natalia Molchanova

From AIDA International: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – The Worlds Most Accomplished and Famous Female Freediver, Natalia Molchanova, is Missing.

Formentera, Spain. Natalia Molchanova was recreationally freediving off the coast of Spain on August 2, 2015 when she was separated from her peers. She was diving without fins to around 30 to 40 m and supposable got into strong underwater current. Search efforts have been ongoing during daylight hours and the next day since she was reported missing by three peers. She disappeared while diving approximately two miles northwest of the port of La Savina at Poniente de es Freus.

Natalia is a proud mother of Oksana and Alexey. She loved children and was awaiting the day when she would become a Grandmother. She was an inspiration to all freedivers and despite being one of the fiercest competitors in the world, she was always calm and relaxed during competitions. She said “birth and death are important, but freediving competitions are just games for adults”. The cause of Natalia’s disappearance is unknown, but she was doing what she loved. Natalia has a passion for freediving that burned so deep inside of her that she dedicated her life to it.

NY Times – Free Diver Natalia Molchanova Descends for Fun, Then Vanishes.

Natalia Molchanova, widely regarded as the greatest free diver in history, wore her favorite purple wet suit Sunday on a chartered boat off the coast of Formentera, an island near Ibiza. Only 1.5 millimeters thick, the wet suit was low buoyancy, designed specifically for divers like her who want to go deep on a single breath. It was a Molchanova, the brand she started with her son, Alexey Molchanov.

With clear skies and a light breeze on the Balearic Sea, off the eastern coast of Spain, Ms. Molchanova attached a neck weight — a pound or two, at most — that would help her descend. Then she dipped into the water to begin what divers call breathing up. A lower heart rate enables divers to use precious oxygen more efficiently. To relax deeply, Ms. Molchanova would inhale for a few seconds, then exhale twice as long and twice as deep.

Those may have been among Ms. Molchanova’s last breaths. She then proceeded to attempt a recreational dive to a depth that was modest for her, and she never resurfaced. After two days of intense search efforts, Alexey Molchanov said Tuesday afternoon that his mother, 53, was not expected to be found alive.

Former GITMO Detainee Lahcen Ikassrien Arrested in Spain Recruiting for ISIS

LOOKS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LET GITMO DETAINEES GO … YEAH, THEY POSE NO THREAT.

Spanish police arrested eight people in pre-dawn raids in Madrid on Monday against a jihadist recruitment network led by a former Guantanamo Bay inmate, Lahcen Ikassrien.  Authorities suspect the cell of trying to send people to join the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), an Islamo- jihadist militant group.

BBC – Spain Arrests Eight In Islamofascist Recruiting Cell

EURONEWS

Spanish police arrested eight people in pre-dawn raids in Madrid on Monday against a jihadist recruitment network led by a former Guantanamo Bay inmate, the government said.

The cell found and dispatched recruits for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants based in Syria and Iraq, Spain’s interior ministry said in a statement.

“It should be highlighted that the leader of this cell lived in Spain after passing through Guantanamo, having been arrested in Afghanistan in 2001,” it said, without providing further details.

Police have so far launched 12 raids, detaining eight people, and the investigation remains open, the ministry said.

Spain’s government has said it fears battle-hardened Islamist fighters may return to Spain from Syria and other conflict zones under the influence of Al-Qaeda-inspired groups, presenting a threat of attacks.

SICK, SICK, SICK: Bus Stop in Barcelona, Spain Has Ad for ‘Abuse-Free’ Child Pornography Removed … Why Was it There in the First Place?

ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!

When is the world going to get serious about the exploitation of children? A bus stop in Barcelona, Spain had a poster advertizing  pedophilia and child porn.  The poster called for “abuse-free child pornography.”  HUH? Oh yeah, abuse free child porn, like that actually exists. The ad actually called for adults to send naked pics of themselves when they were children. This is supposed to some how be an “abuse-free” for of child porn. There are some really twisted people out there.  I am not quite sure which is worse, the sick and disgusting ad promoting pedophilia and child porn in this manner, or the fact that some advertizing firm actually accepted money and thought it was perfectly okay to published such material in public. Or was this some sick joke by an employee who thought this was funny? The ads were actually locked inside a glass display case, which indicated the only an individual with a key from the ad form could access the case. Thankfully, the ads have been removed and other bus stops have been inspected to ensure there were no other ads.

NO to CP

A poster appearing to promote pedophilia has been removed from a bus stop display near the famous Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona, Spain, officials say.

JCDecaux, the advertising firm that maintains billboards at the bus stops, said the poster called for “abuse-free child pornography,” ThinkSpain reported Thursday.
The poster bore the word “Freedom” in large letters over the image of a semi-naked little girl. The text of the ad said, “Send us naked photos of when you were a child. For child pornography without abuse. +18 Yes to Pedophilia “ No to Abuse.”
