Support for hunting march grows

  • Nearly 100,000 people have registered their support for the Liberty and Livelihood march which takes place in London next month

    The Liberty and Livelihood March, the countryside’s stand against the government, takes place on Sunday 22 September 2002.

    As the country gets ready to protest against the government’s disregard for rural issues, nearly 100,000 people have registered their support and intention to march.In addition to this more than 12,000 have signed up to “March in Spirit”.

    The “March in Spirit” is for people wishing to show support, but who are unable to attend due to old age, illness or farming commitments.

    People will be arriving into London by various means of transport including coach, train, aeroplane, helicopter, Eurostar and boat.

    More than 1,800 coaches and 33 charter trains have been pre-booked to take passengers to London

    Promotional activity has seen the distribution of half a million car stickers and 250,000 posters. More than 1,000 large banners have been put up around the country and an additional 100 “mega banner” sites are planned along the major trunk routes into London.

    International support has been pledged by Masters of Fox Hounds from Australia, Canada, New Zealand and America who are all planning on travelling to our capital.
