Don’t Let David Cameron Bring Back Fox-Hunting

That was the message from supporters of Tamworth Green Party as we held a stall last Saturday (6th June) to raise awareness of government’s plans to let MPs vote on legalising this barbaric practice.

We had an amazing response, collecting 150 names on our petition in a little over an hour, with people queuing up to sign!

All the people we spoke to were completely against hunting, which bears out the often quoted statistic that at least 80% of people in this country want it to remain illegal.

Here is the petition:

KEEP THE BAN ON FOX-HUNTING

David Cameron has said he believes in the “freedom to hunt” and wants fox hunting legalised.

It is now very likely the Conservatives will hold a parliamentary vote on repealing the fox hunting ban brought in ten years ago.

Tamworth MP Christopher Pincher also supports the return of fox hunting.

Fox hunting involves setting a pack of dogs on a fox and then chasing it on horseback until it is surrounded and ripped apart. It is barbaric and cruel and rightly opposed by the majority of people in this country.

Please sign this petition to show the Prime Minister how out of touch support for this so-called sport is and show your support for maintaining the hunting ban.
