In the up coming election in the UK , Brian may is asking you to use your vote to ensure that the present laws protecting animals from cruelty are kept in place, that the bloodsport laws are more carefully monitored and legally tightened up, and fully enforced.
The “Save Me” campaign is a group, founded by Brian May, who believe that every creature deserves a decent life and a decent death. “Save Me” is not a charity, and not affiliated to any political party but supporting any political candidate who serves the needs and rights of animals.
The “Save Me” campaign believes that there is a grave danger that Britain will soon revert to the barbaric past, when it was legal to hunt down our wildlife with dogs. The current Tory party leadership has vowed, if they win this coming election, to try to repeal the Hunting Act – a law which it took animal-lovers 80 years, and 700 hours of parliamentary debate to bring into effect, by democratic process, in accordance with the will of at least 75 per cent of the population.
IF this barbaric hunting law is repealed, it would become legal to hunt to the death, with packs of dogs, not only foxes, but stags, hares, and other wild creatures in Britain’s countryside.
The British public needs to be clearly told the truth – that is where this campaign comes in.
History behind the “Save Me” Campaign
Founding member of rock band Queen, Brian May, visited Keynsham and Midsomer Norton on Saturday, 24th April where he publicly showed his support for Dan Norris’s campaign to be elected as North East Somerset MP – the anti-hunt campaigner Labour man faces an extremely close battle to win the ultra-marginal constituency against hunt-supporting Tory candidate Jacob Rees-Mogg.
Brian May last week launched his major new campaign to try to prevent the return of legalised blood sports to the British Countryside.
The ‘SAVE-ME’ campaign – named after Brian May’s song, a world-wide hit record for Queen on the album “the Game” – calls on the British public to consider how their vote will affect the welfare of animals; and in particular fox-hunting, stag hunting and hare-coursing. Hunting is no game !
The campaign is non-aligned politically, but is a direct response to the announcement from David Cameron that if the Tories are elected they will, in the first month of their term, introduce a free vote in the House to repeal the Hunting Act, 2004, which made it illegal to hunt wild animals using dogs.
