A House of Commons debate to review the future of the badger cull to be supported by a public demonstration.

This debate is perhaps the most important badger debate in Parliament, and is absolutely critical in the campaign to stop the badger cull, with the possibility that the Government could announce two new cull zones in early April, initiating the national roll out of the badger cull.

Please also write to your MP, details about this can be found further down.

Lets show this government we mean business,  please attend if you can, but at the least please contact your MP. This is a peaceful demonstration which I hope many will attend

Date & Time

13 March 2014
12.00pm – 2.00pm

Location

Old Palace Yard, Westminster, London

“To coincide with an all-day debate on the badger cull on Thursday 13 March, we are going to be attending an anti badger cull Demo at Old Palace Yard, Westminster between 12-2pm.

League Chief Executive, Joe Duckworth and Wildlife Expert and League Vice President, Bill Oddie will be speaking alongside other high profile anti cull campaigners and MPs.

We are hoping to gather a ‘Badger Army’ to show MPs and the media how opposed the public is to this cruel senseless slaughter of Badgers.”

The government need to be reminded about the strength of public opinion on the matter. The majority of people do not want the cull. I don’t care for the use of the word cull as it tends to mitigate the fact that this is a massacre of innocent defenceless animals. It is barbaric cruel inhumane and totally unnecessary and not worthy of any country that wishes to be considered as civilised. Badgers are a  protected species, yet when they are deemed an inconvenience by this callous and undemocratic government it seems they can be murdered regardless.
