Justice for Regina

printer friendly, larger print version

DOWNLOAD mp3

Regina was a rescue dog living in Ribercan shelter in the town of Carcaixent Valencia, Spain. On 29th May 2008, thugs broke into the shelter and Regina was sexually abused, tortured and killed during the attack on the premises. Other dogs were frightened away from the shelter when their quarters were badly damaged but Regina was petrified and too timid to fight back. Shelter volunteers said they had only just begun to gain Regina's trust.

We hope this song will help to alert people to the distressing problem of animal cruelty in Spain. This crime has not been investigated by the Spanish police or authorities. Laws must be implemented in Spain to protect stray dogs like Regina from criminals who see them as easy targets. Animal abuse leads to human abuse.

The Bright Eyes Society has offered a financial reward to help catch the person or persons responsible for this terrible crime against an innocent creature. Download proceeds from this song will be sent to Bright Eyes to increase the reward and one day may there be for justice for Regina.

May we never forget what happened to this poor, wretched shelter dog. And in Regina's name may protection of voiceless animals be possible in Spain.

The central Spanish government must protect animals from sexual predators who defile these innocent creatures simply because they cannot say no. The law is weak and ignores the horrifying cruelty without investigation in most cases. Enough is enough. How many more animals must suffer and die in a pool of blood as Regina did, with nobody to speak up for them? This vile behaviour towards animals is perverted and wrong. Please be aware of the cruelty towards animals in our society today and write to the Spanish authorities denouncing cruelty and politely expressing the need for compassion towards each and every sentient being.

This terrible, upsetting story must be the starting point for a better, safer life, for all animals in Spain.

Thank you

Maria & Paul xx


'Justice For Regina'

Regina, how we gonna come to terms with what they did to you?
Regina, what kinda world is this, look what they did to you
We're broken up, we're living through this holocaust
There's nowhere safe not even for a shelter dog
Regina, Regina...

They don't see the beauty in your trusting eyes
They never knew your story when they made you cry
They broke you down to nothing for a moment's thrill
Those bastards all they wanted was a thing to kill

And I would hurt them back if only I could spare your life
I'd go against my principles to put this right
I'd break my heart in two if only life was fair
Justice For Regina, we got to make them care.

Regina, homeless in a world that has so little love
Regina, stolen from good people who picked you up
There's nothing we can do or say what's done is done
But in your name we fight to save the innocent
Regina, Regina...

They don't see the beauty in your trusting eyes
They never knew your story when they made you cry
They broke you down to nothing for a moment's thrill
Those bastards all they wanted was a thing to kill

And I would hurt them back if only I could spare your life
I'd go against my principles to put this right
I'd break my heart in two if only life was fair
Justice For Regina, we gotta make them care.

And I would hurt them back if only I could spare your life
I'd go against my principles to put this right
I'd break my heart in two if only life was fair
Justice For Regina, we gotta make them care.

Oh, why don't people care?
Why don't people care?

JUSTICIA PARA REGINA

Regina, como explicar lo que te hicieron?
Regina, que clase de mundo es esto, mira lo que te han hecho.
Estamos rotos, estamos viviendo en este holocausto
No hay un sitio seguro, ni siquiera para un perro noble...
Regina, Regina

Ellos no ven la belleza de tus confiados ojos,
Ellos nunca supieron tu historia mientras te hacían llorar
Ellos rompieron tu mundo por entretenerse un rato
Esos bastardos tan solo querían algo que matar

Y quisiera dañarlos a ellos si eso te devolviera la vida
Seguiré mis principios para arreglar todo esto
Partiría mi corazón en dos porque la vida fuese justa
Justicia para Regina, tenemos que hacer que paguen por ello.

Regina, sin casa en un mundo con muy poco amor
Regina, robada de la gente buena que te recogió
No hay nada que podamos hacer o decir, lo hecho, hecho está
Pero en tu nombre lucharemos para salvar al inocente
Regina, Regina...

Ellos no ven la belleza de tus confiados ojos,
Ellos nunca supieron tu historia mientras te hacían llorar
Ellos rompieron tu mundo por entretenerse un rato
Esos bastardos tan solo querían algo que matar

Y quisiera dañarlos a ellos si eso te devolviera la vida
Seguiré mis principios para arreglar todo esto
Partiría mi corazón en dos porque la vida fuese justa
Justicia para Regina, tenemos que hacer que paguen por ello.

Y quisiera dañarlos a ellos si eso te devolviera la vida
Seguiré mis principios para arreglar todo esto
Partiría mi corazón en dos porque la vida fuese justa
Justicia para Regina, tenemos que hacer que paguen por ello.

Oh, por qué a la gente no le importa?
Por qué a la gente no le importa?

La justicia para Regina
La justicia para Regina

Regina, Regina, Regina, Regina...

Thank you for speaking out against the terrible, vile cruelty inflicted on poor Regina. It is so sad that a shelter dog was picked on and killed by thugs who have so far not been identified. It is important to find the person or persons responsible for this crime because soon they may turn their anger towards human beings. Animals must be protected by law, this crime must NOT go unaddressed by the Spanish authorities, say NO to cruelty and protect the voiceless. Compassion is essential, people are horrified that a homeless dog whose trust had just been gained by caring staff, was ruined in this way and nobody in authority seems to care. I hope there will be justice for Regina and I also hope people will realise there is a vast amount of animal cruelty in Spain that is not being dealt with, animals are dying in horrific circumstances every day and those guilty of the abuse are not being prosecuted. In Regina's name I hope positive change will come that enables animal protection to be considered important by Spanish people and regarded as a vital part of life that every good citizen can promote and be proud of. Welfare of sentient beings should be actively encouraged so kindness to animals is seen by example, as beneficial to every member of the community and by young and old, therefore children will learn to respect the voiceless and these atrocities may one day cease to occur.

EVERY VOICE COUNTS!!

Thank you
Maria xx

HELPING ANIMALS HUMAN ABUSE

A study conducted by Northeastern University and the Massachusetts SPCA found that people who abuse animals are five times more likely to commit violent crimes against humans.
The majority of inmates scheduled to be executed for murder at California's San Quentin penitentiary "practiced" their crimes on animals, according to the warden.

Hymn For Regina

We are an army and we fight against the destiny of your tragic demise
We come to find justice for you sweet Regina
We stand united, we feel the hurt in your beautiful eyes.
We are as one, joined by the compassion in our embracing souls
We will not forget you, precious, gentle friend
Your story has broken a thousand rules.
We cannot allow your cries to fall silent in vain
You have kindred spirits on this good earth
No sentient being should endure such pain
We shall not bow down to the cruel hands of inhumanity
We must rise as the Phoenix, bearing weapons of love
To denounce this cruelty.
Now we go on to speak up for your friends
In prayer and peace, we shall move mountains
For Regina and all who have suffered at fate's sad end...
We right this evil wrong
We shall make amends...

'Regina, sweet little angel'

If tears could build a stairway,
and heartache were a lane,
We'd walk right up to heaven,
and bring you back again."

"No farewell words were spoken,
no time to say goodbye,
A monster took your life away,
and only God knows why"

"Our hearts now ache in sadness,
and secret tears still flow,
But what it meant to lose you,
no one will ever know."

"You'll never be forgotten,
and we pledge to you today,
A hallowed place within our hearts,
is where you'll always stay.

Rest in peace Regina, sweet little angel..."

For Regina

You should have been safe...oh you sweet dear girl.
A sanctuary where you would be loved, given your confidence back and a forever home to go.
Did you greet your killers with a wagging tail.. with expectation ?
Or did you sense the danger.. smell the evil ?
For those who violated your precious body are evil.. they must be punished for their crime !
The country where you were so unfortunate to be, should treat your murder as a crime.
You have touched hearts dear one ... leaving your carers grieved and vulnerable.
Your life was worth so much more than your killers. You asked for nothing, grateful of your care, of your sanctuary.
You had no material wealth to guard, or bitter edge ...to give spite.
I will not forget you Regina.
We who believe in the good ...believe in justice.
There will be justice for you!
For now ..be at peace darling..as you were by nature..peaceful.
Leave the evil behind you...You are loved and always will be.

I can not help my anger now
Maybe they have somehow won
Was their prize to end your life
To take their victims one by one

You yelled our names upon the wind
And we came 10,000 strong
Though we cant rewrite your story
Regina now your name is known

All your pain is over now
But our voices still ring true
I hear the wind it's getting stronger
Regina what have they done to you
In a perfect world Regina
You would, have been my friend
We would hike and swim the rivers
Till the earth said it must end
Oh Regina
Regina, what have they done to you.
(Lord help us all)
What have they done to you

I guess your story could be over
As mine will one day too.
While I breathe, I will remember
Oh Regina
Sweet Regina
What have they done to you

*JUST SOME OF THE WONDERFUL MESSAGES WE HAVE RECEIVED FOR REGINA AND HER SONG* -


Regina's story has haunted me and will haunt me for the rest of my life. No living being should ever have to endure that type of horrible torture and death. I pray that the song continues to rise and stay in the charts, obtain recognition, and help this movement that has begun to gain momentum until it reaches the point of being a tsunami of outcries from around the globe that cannot be ignored by the Spanish government any longer. All she ever longed for was a forever home, a kind hand and love. That's all any of us want when you think about it; security, kindness, love. Wonderful site Maria! I am posting the link anywhere and everywhere I can. We must all be Regina's voice, and the voice of the multitudes of the forgotten ones.


Hi, Maria! Just love your song "Justice for Regina". The only sad thing is that it is a true story. Thanks for all you do for the animals around the world! Hugs.
Cristina


As i read each and every single word on this page i cannot help myself but cry, I cry with all the sorrow i have in my whole body and soul. I cry for Regina and all the animals that are at the human's merciless hands. I wonder when will it stop but there is no end for human cruelty. Only when humans die out, will animals have peace. But maybe then, all animals will be already gone. I am so so so very sorry for Regina, for Gage, for all innoccent beings.

Maria, i love the song and tried to download it. Where can i get it in order to fund the animals?

Love xxx

Anita

Words are not sufficient to express my outrage over what criminal act was committed against Regina. Thank you for creating this page in her memory.
Have her perpetrators been found and if so , what has been done to them?
God bless your soul, Regina.
Tina Evangelista

Regina's song is beautiful! Thank you so much for being a voice for her. Though I never met her, I think of her daily and hope that she does find justice.
Ali

I cannot stop thinking about Regina... it has been about 4-5 days since read the ATAAC blog and she has been on my mind since... What your doing is so noble, things like this should definitely never ever happen, at least not again... would love to help you in your cause... If your ever in Australia?
Chrystal

best wishes,
simone

Oh my.... you just made my hair all over lift it self... goose... something. Regina is a very, very strong tune, both lyricwise, melodywise and certainly also productionwise. You deserve that the whole world hear you.

It happens rarely, but this one REALLY got me. Thank you very much.

Best Regards

Rest In Peace Dear Regina

May your precious soul be at peace and your predators punished beyond the full extent of the law... let animals rescue groups such as ours deal with them, not be put in a jail where they are housed, fed and treated humanly.. much too good for the monsters that did this to you!!!!! They need to pay dearly !!!!!!!!!!!!
RIP Regina and God hold you in his arms.....

Love from Missy
