Keep[ing] Cruelty History

We have been overwhelmed by the response to our ‘Keep Cruelty History’ campaign.

The campaign was launched at the party political conferences in September, and aims to raise public awareness of the fact that some politicians want to repeal the Hunting Act, despite the overwhelming public opinion in favour of the Act.

We didn’t quite expect the tens of thousands of visitors to the site, nor the number of people signing up to support this, and our other campaigns. The support has been incredible.

In late December, we launched the second stage of the Keep Cruelty History website, enabling visitors to find out the position on hunting of the Prospective Parliamentary Candidates in their constituency. Once again there has been incredible interest, buoyed in some part by the attention given to this issue by the Secretary of State for Defra, Hilary Benn, who launched his own campaign to ‘Back the Ban’ on Boxing Day.

Why are we blogging this? Well, simply to show our supporters that there is massive public support for a continued ban on the cruelty of hunting with dogs. And no matter what spin the pro-bloodsports lobby come out with next, we know that we are on the side of right.

If you haven’t already, please visit the Keep Cruelty History website and sign up today.

PS: It’s worth noting our thanks and gratitude to design agency Navig8 who’ve helped us with this campaign.
