Jean's latest message

STOP the CULL picket every fortnight

- by Jean Dixon in Yorkshire

The final part of the petition is to be presented on October 31st.

This is an invitation to any interested and supportive people to join us for a visit to DEFRA and picket outside Downing Street.

I organised the "Stop the Cull" petition in Skipton and pledged to come to London every two weeks as I was astounded by the support from the general public (over 20 000 signatures already). I have since met Hilary Peters and together we are moving forward with a network of petitions across Yorkshire. We have organised a photo call and picket outside Downing Street for next Wednesday 05/09/01 with another 6000 signatures.

We are meeting at 1.00pm at George V statue across from the Houses of Parliament - we then walk to Smith Square to present letters, queries etc. to DEFRA and then on to Downing Street with banners, posters, whistles, chanting etc to stage a picket before and after a photo call for 6 people outside 10 Downing Street at 2.30pm.

We would like your presence at this fortnightly event - supportive people who perhaps have a small petition or questions for our government. Please make use of our facilities - have your photo call at No. 10 !!!

We have done the ground work - we have the signage - we have the support from the people of Britain - we want to make our voices heard - we need everyone who can come and we need your ideas to move forward.

There'll be cows on clover, when culling is over
Tomorrow, just you wait and see
There'll be great elation with vaccination
The walkers and tourists will roam free
The shepherd will tend his sheep
And the valley will bloom again, again
The sheepdogs will fetch the sheep
From on the high fell again
There'll be cows in clover, when culling is over
Tomorrow, just you wait and see
