About one million hunt supporters are expected to attend the "Liberty and Livelihood" march organised by the Countryside Alliance through London this coming Sunday, September 22nd, in protest at the Governments proposed changes to hunting legislation which they believe will have a devastating effect on the wellbeing of the countrys rural community.
Countryside Alliance Chief Executive Richard Burge commented this week:
Ultimately, the March is about allowing us to live our lives responsibly in the way we choose. It is about protecting us from prejudice and bigotry, especially at this moment against hunting with dogs. It is about requiring our consent - the countryside is a place you do things for, not to. It is about the need for Parliament to deal with our real problems that threatened our economy, our communities and the future of our children.
