Badger Cull

We've got a couple of petions we'd love you to sign!
I dont know if you've heard of 38 degrees?
38 Degrees is the angle at which an avalanche happens. They are a community of UK citizens who act together to create an avalanche for change. They work together in their hundreds of thousands to defend fairness, protect rights, promote peace, preserve the planet and deepen democracy. 

I've followed theem ever since the governments plan yto sell off our forests was publicised and the latest petion is on the plans to shoot badgers in the South West to supposedly stop the spread of TB in Cattle.

Last week we voted to decide whether or not to launch a campaign to stop the government’s plan to kill badgers.  The results are in – 87% of respondents said answered “Yes” to the question “Should we work together to stop government plans to kill badgers?”
There’s been a big debate among 38 Degrees members about badger culls. Some of us believe killing badgers would be wrong under any circumstances. Some of us believe that if the science really proved that shooting badgers could make a real dent in the cow TB problem, it would be a tragic necessity.

But 87% of us agree on this: the government’s current plans to shoot England’s badgers simply don’t stack up. The government’s own scientific advisers warn that it won’t solve the problem of TB in cattle, and could even make it worse.

please sign the petion!
