Minister for Magic Lillia Ellesmere reunited yesterday with Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures and the Wizangamot, to revise the decree from 1857 forbidding the hunting of all and any magical creatures. While the involved refused to comment on what happened during the meeting, Lillia Ellesmere guaranteed, "It is not our aim to encourage the hunting of magical beings, but some rules must be enforced to ensure the continuation of wizarding primacy."
Following the approval of the House Elf working laws last month, which declared all House Elf unions and strikes illegal, and in sequence of the ongoing debate about whether werewolves should be allowed to continue to live along the general public, the Ministry's decisions are being contested by witches and wizards all over the United Kingdom.
Not unmotivated by possible consequences, the House Elf Union calls a strike for the beginning of September, goblins all over the country promise support, and centaurs and other magical beings refuse to leave Wizarding territories. "Magical beings will stand together, and Wizards should take caution. We don't go by their petty laws," states Ugron, goblin Head of Gringotts, adding that "goblins control the wizarding economy."
While protests are being heard from the heart of the wizarding community, and wizards and witches are rallying for the rights won after the fall of Voldemort, Philbert Grindeford, Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and former activist for magical creatures rights, seems to only have to say that "the elves strike will pose great logistic problems at the beginning of the school year."
