Please support Wild Justice’s petition to ban driven grouse shooting.
The three directors of Wild Justice have a 5-year track record of calling for a ban of intensive Red Grouse shooting. Yesterday, late afternoon, this latest UK-wide e-petition calling for a ban on driven grouse shooting appeared, and by bed time it had already passed the 10,000 signatures which will trigger a response from the Westminster government (they’ll say ‘no’).
But the first 10,000 signatures are the easiest 10,000 – although these came very, very quickly. We need to get to 100,000 signatures in order to trigger a debate in the Westminster parliament – open to backbench MPs from all parts of the UK – and that is a mountain to climb.
It’s a mountain to climb and we’ll have to run up the slope as time is short. Such petitions run for 6 months (and, completely by chance, this one closes on the first birthday of Wild Justice’s launch (is that a sign of some sort?)) but they can be curtailed by the announcement of a general election. That is very likely long before the end of the 6-month period. So time is short, maybe very short.
We’ll be blogging about why we’d like you to give this e-petition your support over the hours and days and weeks ahead, but, for now, please support this e-petition calling for a ban of driven grouse shooting if you trust Wild Justice to have thought about it, weighed up the pros and cons, and so, basically, if you trust us.
PLEASE SIGN THIS LATEST e-PETITION TO BAN DRIVEN GROUSE SHOOTING.
