AFG, GAIP and BGA , PEACEFUL PROTEST PETERBOROUGH STADIUM 09.11.2013
AFG, Greyhound Action in Peterborough and Bedfordshire Greyhound Action, had a very successful evening of awareness with an impressive group of dedicated campaigners.
Possibly 50% of race goers willingly winding down their windows to take leaflets politely handed to them.
Its easy to see who the hardened race goers are, when they speedily drive past avoiding the sight of the ‘Running for Their Lives’ leaflets. Many baffled expressions on faces when they view the large awareness banners, especially from children who are being forced to spend a ‘night at the races’.
Meanwhile the ‘educated children’ are willingly spending their evening raising awareness for the greyhounds, outside the track.
Its very encouraging to see that so many racegoers took notice of our presence, proving that the track protests are another of many ways of raising public awareness and highlighting the secrets the industry choose to keep from them.
