“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have” (Margaret Mead).
Massive, massive kudos to Mark Avery, who started this (3 x petitions ago!) and didn’t give up. Well done, Mark, and thank you.
Special mention to Chris Packham, who, like Mark, has endured months of disgraceful abuse and harassment from the grouse-shooting community, much of it played out in the national media. In the end, coupled with the continuing raptor persecution and subsequent denials, it has helped this industry’s fall from grace.
A quote from Chris this morning:
“In the end you can’t argue with science, you can’t argue with evidence, you can’t argue with the truth. And the truth is that people are fed up with this ‘tradition’, the injustice and the lies. One hundred thousand people just started to make the world a better place for wildlife and every single one of them will be remembered for that”.
The petition is still open (until 20 Sept 2016) – HERE
