Labour Party should end support of gamebird shooting and snaring
Petition Background (Preamble):
For thirteen years the Labour Party in government gave active and sustained support to the gamebird industry, endorsing barbaric bloodsports and the medieval snaring and persecution of our wildlife.
Huge numbers of people across the country have long been appalled by Labour's support of shooting and cited it as a reason they left the Labour Party or no longer vote for it.
Support for killing sentient creatures for fun and persecuting our wildlife is incompatible with progressive ideals and values of compassion and decency.
In addition, we call for Labour to have a policy of banning the manufacture, sale and use of all snares and Larsen traps.
