Make Badger Culling & Hunting History Protest March
Date(s) - 12/08/2017
1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
The Badger Trust, the Make Hunting History coalition and Care2 will be holding a joint protest march to Downing Street on Saturday 12 August.
The key aim of the protest march will be to call on the new Conservative minority government to bring an immediate end to the cruel, costly and ineffective badger cull policy and to strengthen rather than seek to repeal the Hunting Act.
Equally, we aim to raise public awareness of the barbarity of fox-cub hunting, otherwise known as ‘cubbing’ or ‘Autumn hunting’, which is currently in season and has started across the UK.
The driven grouse shooting season starts on the 12th August and is hugely detrimental to the much persecuted Hen Harriers. We are delighted to announce that Chris Packham will speak on this subject.
This event is expected to be the largest ever British wildlife protection protest held in the UK, bringing together thousands of caring compassionate people united in their determination to stop the government from playing politics with the future of our wildlife.
The march will leave Cavendish Square at 1.30pm and proceed down Regents Street, Pall Mall, around Trafalgar Square down Whitehall ending at Richmond Terrace opposite Downing Street.
Speakers at Cavendish Square and Richmond Terrace will include leading wildlife protection campaigners, naturalists and broadcasters, politicians and vets.
