UK: League Against Cruel Sports BANNED From Attending Conservative Government Party Conference.

U Flag


The UK anti hunting group the ‘League Against Cruel Sports’ (LACS); has been doing some fantastic work as always.

We celebrate 90 years of saving British wildlife with them:

David Cameron – UK Prime Minister – A Real Blood Lust To Return To Hunting With Dogs !

As we have always said and shown in many of our posts on this site; current UK Prime Minister David Cameron wishes to bring back the current ban on hunting with dogs as soon as he can.  Cameron is also behind the recent badger cull in the UK, which despite killing many badgers; a protected species here in the UK, did nothing to actually prove or show that badgers were behind the spread of Bovine TB.

The badger cull is just another vote rigging ploy by the Conservatives in some pathetic attempt to gain from the farming community in the General Election which will take place in the UK during May 2015.

Being utterly anti hunt, the LACS was banned from attending the Conservative Party Conference this year to put forward the animal welfare side of the argument. 

LACS CEO Joe Duckworth made a statement on the situation which you can read at:  

The LACS was allowed to attend all other Political party conferences this year.  The League was granted a pass for the annual conferences of the Greens, UKIP, the Liberal Democrats, the Labour Party, SNP and Plaid Cymru.  The Conservative Party was the only party to reject their application.

We consider this just shows how the Conservatives want to keep the anti- hunt campaigners out of their shop; in order that they can try to allow wild animal killing back when they can.

Hopefully the elections in the UK in May 2015 will see Mr. Cameron fail to remain as PM; and with another political party having the majority in the House of Commons, we will continue to see hunting with dogs kept where it belongs – in the History boos and nowhere else !

In November 2013 the LACS launched a nationwide awareness campaign featuring the brilliant comedian Dave Spikey to highlight the importance of the Hunting Act in protecting British wildlife.

See the video via the following link which shows Dave in the ‘No Joke’ campaign:

(Note you may have to track the video back to the start)


We DO NOT want to return to this animal abuse which celebrates around 10 years of a ban in the UK this year (2014).  The Conservatives led by David Cameron DO WISH to return to this immense suffering being inflicted on British wildlife.  Banning the LACS from their party conference was just another action of theirs to try and return to full blown hunting of wild animals in the UK.

We abhor animal cruelty and will do anything that we can in the lead up to the UK General Election in May 2015.  The Conservatives and Mr. Cameron must be removed from government.  I think this is very much the feeling of most of the general public in the UK at this present time.

Look at the following picture of a hunted fox that I took back in the 1980’s when sabs across the country were doing all that they could to stop and disrupt hunts.  Ask yourself; do you wish to see an animal abused in this way again if the hunting act is repealed by a Conservative government ? – NO – we wish to see a government in the UK that supports and promotes animal welfare.

USA: Please Act Before Honey Bees Are Extinct !



I just signed an urgent petition save bees from deadly pesticides, will you join me?

In a few days’ time a task force will recommend what the White House should do about these poisons, and if we get 3.5 million people to call for a ban, and deliver our call in time, we can help prevent honey bees going extinct.

See the massive petition here:  


Mark – SAV.


Dear friends,

Silently, billions of bees are dying off and our entire food chain is in danger. Bees don’t just make honey — they are a giant, humble workforce, pollinating 75% of growing plants. But in days the US could move to ban the toxic pesticides that are killing them off.

We know we can get a ban — after a mega Avaaz campaign last year, the EU banned this group of poisons that multiple scientists blame for bees’ rapid demise.

Right now chemical companies are furiously lobbying US authorities to stop action. But insider allies say a massive public mandate could tip the scales towards a ban. Let’s give it to them! If the US moves, it will set in motion a ripple effect on the rest of the world.

We have no time to lose — members of the White House’s bee task force will report with proposals in days. Already 3.2 million of us have backed this campaign. Let’s race to send messages to the heads of the task force before the meeting. This is not just about saving bees, this is about our survival.

Click to send a message now:  

Bees are vital to life on earth — every year pollinating plants and crops with an estimated $40bn value. Without immediate action to ensure bees’ continued pollination, many of our favourite fruits, vegetables, and nuts could vanish from our shelves and ⅓ of our food supply will be gone. 

Recent years have seen a steep global decline in bee populations — some bee species are already extinct and just in California — the biggest food producer in the US — beekeepers are losing a third of their bees each year. Scientists have been scrambling for answers. While some studies, often funded by the chemical companies, argue this may be due to a combination of factors including disease, habitat loss and toxic chemicals, powerful independent studies conclude neonicotinoid pesticides are to blame.

It is this startling evidence and super effective campaigning by Avaaz and partners that won the EU ban. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is required by Congress to regulate toxins, but under the influence of big chemical companies, for years they’ve fudged the law. Now the White House’s ‘Pollinators Health Task Force’ could get the EPA to cancel the pesticides’ registration so they can’t be sold in the US. This is our chance!

The task force reports in days. Already 3.2 million of us around the world have backed this campaign. Let’s race to send thousands of messages to deliver our call to the heads of the agencies who sit on the task force before they reach their decision:

We can no longer leave our delicate food chain in the hands of chemical companies and the regulators that are in their pockets. Banning these pesticides will move us closer to a world safe for ourselves and the other species we care about and depend on.

With hope,

Terra, Alex, Alice, Ari, Nick, Laila, Marigona, Ricken, and the rest of the Avaaz team
