Protest on steps of London Embassy

A large group of people gathered outside the Irish Embassy in Grosvenor Place, London, this Saturday to protest at proposals by the Irish Greyhound Board to develop greyhound racing in China.

The gathering to include representatives from Action for Greyhounds, Greyhound Compassion and Greyhounds in Need travelled from various UK locations to voice their concerns.

Banners and placards were used to great effect and leaflets highlighting the groups concern for the welfare of greyhounds exported to China were distributed to passing members of the public.

Hundreds of motorists gave their ‘hoot of support’ to the demonstration that was held amid growing international anger against the IGB.

A big thank you to all who donated very generously towards the cost of leaflets, placards and banners.
